Don't take on so K - you couldn't possibly understand, it was a coded message for me...

An inside joke? Where is this coded message? Has it been posted on this thread?

If not why are you talking about it?

Tell you what, if you can get twenty four members of this forum, who have previously posted that they don't want recreational drugs made legal, and because of the compelling arguments put forward by the pro-dopes on Accy Web, to make a subsequent post that they've now changed their mind about decriminalisation, I'll happily donate 100 to the Maunday Grange.

I'd just better add, I won't be one of them.

Good luck.

I wonder how much it would cost to change my name to Maunday Grange by deed Poll?

I think I have said that yes, people should be able to do pretty much what they like providing it doesn't harm anyone else or infringe on their lives. I have also stated that if drugs were not illegal it would possibly lead to less use not more due to young people being drawn to that which is illegal out of rebellion.

Nothing of substance.

Yet another nonsense post. You talk of substance, try it, you might even get to like it.

So you started a thread to get reassurance of your own beliefs? That seems about right for you.

Carry on.

Keep this thread active, if you insist.

It's perfectly clear that the vast majority of people on this forum don't want the law changed regarding recreational drugs.

Every time another pro-dope insists on drawing attention to their stupidity, the more evidence they provide to others that taking this crap for pleasure, really isn't that good an idea.

This happened here in Cremona on Sunday evening -thank-god the grand-parents offered to keep the children that evening and let the parents have a (last) night out alone...
Alcohol is perfectly legal. Doesn't that impair judgement? But there are laws against driving under the influence.

Er...no.

If you didn't sadly suffer from crippling lethargy, and were actually able to read the very post, you'd have seen that this thread was started to clearly illustrate just how little support there is here, when the question about legalising drugs for recreation was first asked in a thread, started by another dope.

I do wish you would actually make a point occasionally. If you're going to criticise try coming up with an argument. Of course you won't do that because it seems your only way to put across any kind of point is to rubbish others. It's very easy, as you have obviously discovered over the years, to destroy but far more difficult to build.
Anyone who has to start an argument just to reinforce his own beliefs must have very weak beliefs.

That's been addressed umpteen times already.

If you're not able, ask a responsible adult to read out loud to you, what's already been said.

You aren't the first of the pro-dope minority here, to mention things already discussed, but didn't have the energy to read.

Thanks to adding yet more evidence, about the long-term effects of taking illegal narcotics for fun, on users.
