    Re: Legalisation of Marijuana

    I don't support legalizing marijuana. Taking a C1 class drug and reducing it to OTC status is legally preposterous. We also don't need another mind altering substance out there for public consumption.

    Do you have any idea what a junkie is? A junkie is a term to describe a heroine addict. I sincerely doubt you've seen either a heroine addict or a pothead. They don't even look like the same species.

    And the link you posted is BS and anything but scientific.

    Here's a direct quote:
    "It has been suggested that marijuana is at the root of many mental disorders, including panic attacks (one of the very conditions it is being used experimentally to treat), flashbacks, paranoia, depression"
    I've specifically been prescibed marijuana to fight these exact conditions, specifically oriented towards PTSD, and I can confirm it's helped me more than any legal drug ever has.

    A junkie is a heroin user- different drug altogether.

    THE MEDICAL DANGERS OF MARIJUANA USE

    I think the bar has already been set with alcohol. Pot is no more dangerous than alcohol and isn't physically addictive, like booze and nicotine and the gazillion prescription drugs that the continent is awash in.

    It has great efficacy in treating pain, appetite loss, glaucoma, cancer patients (physical and mentally), and stress to name a few things. does it cause some people to go paranoid - yes it does, but considering the long long list of side effects from "perfectly safe pharmaceuticals" when "prescribed by a doctor" it's minor.

    then consider the social effects of prohibition. There is a multi-billion dollar underground industry whose "rewards" create a massive amount of violence and crime. In the US prisons are overflowing with pot sellers, distributors, importers. Ironically even being in prison many can continue their businesses albeit on a smaller scale. A casual pot user can be given a criminal record and prevented from all kinds of activities and opportunities.

    Pot shoud be legalized, distribution controlled, laws updated so driving or operating machinery while high is an offense like drinking and driving, and taxed up the yingyang.

    I'd like to see a Marijuana control board type of distribution. (we have a liquor control board of ontario who distributes/retails virtually all the liquor in the province - can't by booze at a local convenience store or private liquor store - strange to americans but works very well here - the province makes a few billion a year in profit and the LCBO is the largest single purchaser of booze in the world).

    Itll never happen of course, because the US won't let us legalize it. They have way to much invested in the phony and ineffective war on drugs. Not to mention that there are just too many people who want to protect us from ourselves.

    My belief is that it should be, and two major parties here already advocate it. What are your thoughts?
    I will support the legalization of marijuana when one of the two following conditions is reached:
    1. DUI and DWI rates decrease to near non-existence.
    2. Legalization is accompanied by stricter DUI and DWI laws.

    It seems you're operating under the assumption that legalization will increase the net number of impaired drivers. What facts or studies are you relying on for this assumption?

    It's funny that you request people to read a link you posted when you obviously don't read what other people write. I'll repeat: you've never seen a junkie or a pothead in your entire life if you think they look even remotely similar. You've even admitted you've never used marijuana. What knowledge are you even bringing to the table?
