    (2009 - cannabis use in The Netherlands) "According to a 2009 survey of drug use in Amsterdam carried out by the Jellinek institute for addiction care among 266 coffee shop visitors, 94 percent of respondents admitted having used cannabis during the previous month. Almost 75 percent of them reported daily cannabis use, averaging just fewer than four joints per day."

    and that was for another members post. not our argument. you are not good at keeping on track my friend.
    I am perfectly controlled, ty What does the rest of the statement change? coffee house patrons use weed.. omg! newsflash.

    and regardless of who you were replying to this is an open forum and I am not going to let bs like that slide when I see it.

    edit: I think i see a part of the problem.. reading another post you claimed "it is sold anywhere". No it is not sold anywhere, it is sold only in coffee shops

    Well, my argument was that marijuana use was lower in the Netherlands than in the United States, and your response was an attempt to refute my argument, was it not?

    how is this bs? where would you like the study done to be accurate? doing a study for a country where a substance is illegal vs a country where it is legal is hard to get. apparently you cant take the survey where they commonly sell it.

    "newsflash" for me

    (ie. do you want to make people have to get a license to buy it? to get this license they would have to take a class on understanding marijuana? I just want to know your process of carrying out this plan)
    legalization, controlling every step of the supply chain from manufacture to distribution, drastically reducing the size and scope of the black market, education (without propaganda), Trying to keep it out of the hands of minors as much as possible (substantially stiffen the penalty for distribution to minors is perfectly fine with me as well), offer treatment to those that need/want it. Educate on the potential harms (without the propaganda), deglamourize usage (personaly I have no problems with zero advertisement and bland generic packaging).

    that is the essential meat of it, get rid of all the artificially manufactured problems associated with prohibition. and isolate and focus on the problems associated with the drugs themselves.

    That is like me saying 100% of people who smoke weed breath air. air is a gateway drug, shouldn't it be illegal?

    It's invalid.
    Yes, it was invalid and ridiculous . . . just like keeping pot illegal and claiming it is a gateway drug . . . unless of course alcohol is also included in the definition of "gateway drug". Alcohol is 10-times worse than pot . . . but of course, that is just my humble opinion. I'm an idiot.

    If all this were to be done, I would be for it then. The education on its harms and negative impact is vital for the young mind (like you said earlier) and if focused could be manageable with what you propose in my eyes.

    And here you are trying to tell me that I am not good at keeping track. You are quite amusing

    If you want to know usage rates for the population then you need to survey the entire population.
