It shouldnt carry such a damn hefty punishment behind caught with it in the US. Thats not gonna solve problems, locking kids up for trying stuff will only breed criminals in the future... especially the way the US criminal system works.
at least be consistant... yes it should be leagal, but if your gonna make it illegal, make cigarettes and alcohol illegal as well (not suggesting it...), alcohol is more harmful and dangerous than pot....
Motivation: All the things Neon-Rain said so right + that on that way goverment would control the breed and it would be clean, and not sprayed with chemical shit so the police dogs won't smell it when smuglers try to get it in...
Bad quallity of weed is dangerous, man.... it can cause damage to you.
If it was legal all that would stop!!
And Man, everyone smokes! It would be better if they by it from stores and the weed comes with quality control papers....
cause lets be honest: you need les to get high, than you would need alcohol!
alcohol KILLS your brain-cells, where Marihuana just anesthetizes them, which means you can use them again...
there are no recorded deaths of marihuana world-wide! alcohol can kill you with just 2l of jack...
stoned, you're mentally still able to drive a car perfectly, whilest drunk you're slithering all over the road...
there's so much more positiv stuff than alcohol...
i would say : "don't be ridiculous... of course" ,but since you want motivation man here you go...
when legal : young kids, when going to the dealer to get weed, they won't get into THIS kind of questions : A) dealer : "I don't have weed right now, BUT I got this(anything else, harder probably,the kid doesn't know that"
B) dealer : "you wanna try something else kid? check THESE out"
C) kid : "I'd like to try something new"
In my point of view, the legalization will HELP the youth not get into harder drugs, and please, I don't wanna hear noone saying "Damn man, you think that if it will be widely free and legal will be better? Everyone will buy then", cause you know what? Everyone buys it ALREADY, everyone smokes it...
when Illegal :
B) Bodyguards, guns
C) Corruption, guns
D) Jail, guns
E) Big money, guns
F) Guns, guns
G) Crime, guns (i'm talking THEIR way now... cause that's what the say it is...CRIME they say... and we follow... yes we say... because it's the "law" .. )
weed will stay forever stigmatized if they don't open their mind.
ha over here in the netherlands it is legal.... and i'm pretty happy with it...
not only can i smoke cheap..... i get get it at the end of my street
nah but it's not like really legalised.... it's condoned.... long complicated story which politicians dont even seem to get...
anyway.... they should really legalise it... will probably help out with the whole crime rate deal, plus the goverment can ask taxes on the weed.... which will make it a bit more expensive, but in the end will make us all richer hehehehe...
Dude that shits alright when your doing it, I had fun. But It fucks your head up in the future, I suffer from panic attacks now because of it. Wouldn't reccomend it, Wasn't worth it! Making it legal would be saying it's alright to do it. But The side affects are wrong so it should stay illegal and bad!!! That way it might make some people think twice.
Well yeah It's been proven to cause that. (and others) Also led to other drugs. I dont get panic attacks us much now, learnt to deal with them... i'm a bit anti drug because of all the problems it's caused.
its thrue, i felt same way but after years of smokin.... and now im ok! almost all hard smokers after years of use could fell those paranoia everithing have his price, (is wrong but is thrue) i know a guy that had this paranoia 2 years after leaving it - he could'n breath because of panik from time to time, now is ok! there are others that smoke a life time without any trouble.... its about a predisposition for panik... pot is not 100% god for health. smoke it from time to time should be ok and much fun with it, but again, it depends from brain to brain
It could of been any of them that caused it, your right. Doctors have said that weed causes them aswell as others. ANd for me it was like if i'm doing one drug I might aswell do another! So many people have said that weed was the stepping stone to harder drugs. So in a way it was weeds fault, and my poor judgement of course!!! Thats why I dont agree was making it legal. Just my opinion. I dont go around telling people to stop doing drugs but I do let them know what can happen, It's a risk people should at least think about! I Never thought it would happen to me and thought I was invinsible I was wrong!
i dont think the government should regulate such trade
alcohol is worse, its only legal because of the industry. lets start a marijuana industry. money, jobs, and some fun for the costumers, hell they could even tax it alot and itll all be good
I dont care much for the stuff, but I guess I prefer it being illegal because people are more likely smoke it out the way somewhere rather than right infront of you at social events etc.
I have no problem with poeple smoking it ( or eating it )
I dont mind if its legal or not
But I think it should be illegal for people to talk to ME while they are under the influence of it.
Theres nothing more irritating than stoned teenagers trying to impress you with how much theyve smoked.
