So you felt the need to try to reinforce a point by starting a thread on a subject that was already being discussed on another? Mmmm!!

I can only speak for Italy on this point -they do have laws in place against drink driving -probably still not severe enough but it is illegal to drive in an inebriated state -so YES alcohol is Legal but driving under the influence is not, you have to face the consequences.

Presumaby in a hypothetcal world where Cannabis was also legal it would have to be illegal to drive while under it's effects. The problem in this case is that for regular users it's impossible to tell when they've consumed it as it stays in their body for so long -for them to de-tox can take anywhere up to two months -this with a urine test, for it to be completely expelled they have to then have a further five months without use for it not to be picked up with a test on their hair. Therefore -the answer would be -OK you can smoke dope but you can't drive as there's no way of knowing when you used it.

Yet another point someone else has made with a far better argument, shame you haven't read it.
I suppose until you do these circles we go around in will continue until you disappear somewhere no one else would boldly go?

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.

And if you read my post correctly before reaching for the quote button (yet again) you would see that I was simply responding to a post with a "point". It doesn't matter one jot if it's been mentioned before, it was relevant to the post. But then again, what would you know about relevance.

Anyone who has to start an argument just to reinforce his own beliefs must have very weak beliefs.
Explain how 'bad driving' as a 'lifestyle choice', isn't a potential danger to other, innocent people.

If you provide a satisfactory answer, I'll happily not mention your ludicrous statement again.

Your point, raised many times, and has already been addressed.

Wouldn't want to bore the people, forced to read all the tripe you post, by answering it again, would we?

Your inability to take in information already given, just further illustrates just how lacking in drive and energy, the pro-dopes on here are.

Bless 'em.

I will gladly take bad driving off my list, it was a bad example of "lifestyle choice" but one thing it has high lighted is your inability to destroy my argument other than picking on one bad example.
Incidentally bad driving is of course potentially dangerous but my point was that most people (in that particular case) are bad drivers in one way or another but would we ban most people from driving. All driving is potentially dangerous but we aren't going to ban it are we?

No, dont apologise.

It acted as a perfect example of your thinking.

Thank you.

The fact that you've now been forced to apologise for your stupidty, really is neither here, nor there.

Just as all drugs, taken as recreation, are similarly potentially dangerous.

Are you now going to take them off your list, of 'lifestyle choices which should be beyond the law', as well now?

There you go.

You might find that slighty less painful.

Certainly less so, than thinking you have a hope in Hell of pursuading the vast majority of members on this forum that recreational drugs should be legalised.

Accy Web says NO to legalising these drugs.

It looks to me like AccyWeb says YES

1. I didn't apologise.
2. It shows that people (even me) can put things slightly out of context (remember context?).
3. If you're going to use the word stupidity learn to spell it.

If you still had enough energy to read, you'd see as I stated, I twice did so as an act of kindness, for people suffering similarly to yourself.

No, because I don't want all dangerous things banned. Life would be incredibly dull without:
A: a little danger
B: people like you spouting opinions with an almost religious fervour.
Recreational drugs should not be illegal as long as their use does not affect others (thought I'd say it again just to bore you). Most drug users do no harm to others and, when they do, there are laws to deal with them.
