certainly they have a choice without fear of judicial retribution, but thats not the same

I've just rembered why I never saw the appeal of weed.

Too much sitting around talking gibberish, thinking what's being discussed is meaningful, and deep...man.

The law's not been used as forcefully over the last few decades.

Meanwhile the number of users, and addicts, has increased dramatically.

Go figure.

Absolutely!!! My point entirely.

By the way Garinda, nice to see that you are keeping the old open mind about things. Nothing like having an argument with someone who is so convinced of their "rightness" that everyone else has to be wrong if they don't fit in. In case you hadn't noticed, I have agreed with you on some points but I don't see that being the case with you, are you always so convinced of your beliefs (because that is what they are, not facts).
If only you had my knowledge on this you may, just possibly, move slightly from your entrenched view. Unfortunately, due to this being a public forum I am limited as to what I can say for a number of reasons. Both from a historical and sociological point of view this is a subject I have extensive knowledge on. There are facts and there are opinions and they do not always equate to the same thing.

Read what's already been posted, ask me something new, and I won't be flippant, because you won't bore me.

Re: Should we 'legalise illegal drugs'? - Poll.

Among 16 to 24 year olds in England and Wales in 2002/03:

Prevalence of taking drugs in the last year decreased slightly between 2001/02 and 2002/03 (from 30% to 28%); prevalence of taking drugs in the last month was 18% in 2002/03 (compared with 19% in 2001/02).

we can all find them

After you've read all that's been discussed on the legalisation of recreational drugs on here, I'm sure some kind soul will pop along and answer any as yet unanswered questions you might have.

This isn't the thead by the way.

This is just a subsequent poll, created to accompany the thread.

This is the thread.

http://www.accringtonweb.com/forum/f...ugs-55943.html (Legalise "Illegal" Drugs?)

Knowledge is power.

Happy reading.

Any failure to do so could be seen as yet one more long-term effect of teenage weed smoking, lethargy.

I don't know who's the bigger fool.

You, reading things you have no interest in, or myself.

Answering the same old questions, by members who haven't the sense to read what's all ready been discussed, and addressed.

My money's on you.

the way you spout rhetorically, i am beginning to think, that you yourself have been wandering outside of the bathroom cupboard for your meds

i am sure throughout history, you will find cases of "the lower classes", using something as escapism from their pitifull lives.
Come the Revolution, Brother!
So you think drugs are not allowed to control the masses? Should we really care how many use them?
By inference you appear to suggest we should allow them and if the economy is brought to it's knees so be it! Or perhaps your post is badly put together and I misunderstood?
Perhaps they're not allowed because they're bad for you? That would not seem unreasonable.
As for 'the lower classes' seeking escapism from their pitiful lives, what year do you think it is, 1812 not 2012? Most of the people on Accyweb appear to be ordinary working class people, members of the 'lower classes'(couldn't you have put that better?). I doubt if many of them feel they have lived pitiful lives or know anyone else who has.

i am sure many on here would argue that there is a class below them, just read some of the posts they make
