The difference is (as it applies to the thread), pot is less harmful than either of the other two, yet it is illegal. The government and those who believe that drugs are evil, will try to make you believe that pot is a gateway drug to others. Most of the people I know who smoke weed, use weed exclusively.
    oaky i know what you mean but

    No, my conditions aren't operating under that or any other assumption. My conditions are based on the fact that I don't believe marijuana should be legalized until our society can either prove that it can handle drugs without endangering my and others' lives or that the government can force people to handle drugs without doing so.

    how do you know that i didnt read your post and i never saw them?i am not living in mars..what kind of real positive knowledge do you have while supporting this ?

    Because I'm in my 50's. I lived through the drug culture of the 60's and 70's. I've lost friends who were heroin addicts to overdoses. I have friends who smoke pot, and have done so for 40 years. I have friends who are alcoholics with liver disease. I've had friends who were coke-heads. I've watched the effects that drug use has on many people, both prescription drugs, and illegal drugs.

    Re: Legalisation of Marijuana

    I'm all for it, but I wonder how we'd regulate its use. I mean, how could we be sure people aren't operating a vehicle high or something?

    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.
    I have had direct experience with somebody going all reefer madness on me. Shocked the hell outta me since I have been exposed to a lot of pot smokers over the years. I liken it to the category of possible side effects of pharma drugs. You know those ads that say this or that drug is going to relieve whatever except ..<list side effects and exclusionary conditions in the last half of the commercial time by talking real fast>.

    I am not surprised you have found it to be efficacious in treating ptsd. It has many therapeutic effects and should be prescribed regularly. However I get the feeling that because pot can be grown by just about anyone with a little knowledge and $50 worth of equipment, the big drug companies are not at all interested in seeing it legalized unless they can make a thc pill that costs .25 make and they can sell for $10 a pill. (and people think pot dealers are greedy scum.)
