    This does not support what you said, which was that marijuana can "harm your memory capacity at a later date." From your link:

    "Overall, our findings indicate that under the influence of cannabinoids, neurons are liberated from population control."

    This research studied the effects of memory while intoxicated. It says nothing about permanent memory loss following the short-term effects of THC.

    Was cocaine the cause of all this, or merely a symptom of a bigger problem? I think it's pretty irrational to assume cocaine had anything to do with this.

    So can you prove that Cocaine made her do it? People do things like this when they're sober. It's called mental instability.
    Mental instability as a result of the Cocaine...she isnt the only person i know who pops that ****. The other lot have done some unbelievable things, especially when under its influence.
    Not all human traffickers dope up their women, either. You've been watching "Taken", I presume.
    Watching what?
    Its a typical tactic of traffickers especially in Europe. But obviously it suits you to think otherwise.

    The doctors said her thinking was severley distored and they found high amounts of hormones in her body because the cocaine has that effect on the brain that it distorts the thinking process, impaires the speech and sometimes causes the brain to instruct the body to release large amounts of hormones. It caused her to go mad, not to mention she wasnt thinking because of the drug. And the cost to society? Lives. But you know, who cares??

    I think you are oversimplifying. Cocaine does seem to affect your ability to make rational decisions while under the influence. I doubt cocaine was the sole, or even the primary reason, but it certainly could have been a part of it.

    How could this have happened!? Aren't there drug laws in your country?

    Yes, just imagine if they where legal and therefore easily accessible.

    They are easily accessible. Millions upon millions of people use illegal drugs. I could get enough cocaine to kill a race horse within the next hour.

    You're right, what I said was too broad and probably inaccurate. I agree more with how you said it than how I did.

    You mean like the disasterous affects of the Netherlands' drug policy?

    The U.S., which has been driving much of the world’s drug research and drug policy agenda, stands out with higher levels of use of alcohol, cocaine, and cannabis, despite punitive illegal drug policies. … The Netherlands, with a less criminally punitive approach to cannabis use than the US, has experienced lower levels of use, particularly among younger adults.

    Clearly, by itself, a punitive policy towards possession and use accounts for limited variation in nation level rates of illegal drug use.

    Give me a second to find the post where i stated such laws will completely stop these kinds of things happening. Oh yeah, i didnt say that. Because legalization will have the opposite affect!! Man, reverse logic, i see how it works!

    They are easily accessible. Millions upon millions of people use illegal drugs. I could get enough cocaine to kill a race horse within the next hour.
    So they will be less accessible when sold in liquor stores by the government? Good night, kid.

    They didnt legalize anything. Policy reform is the magic word, i told you. You dont have anything, nobody has ever tried complete legalization of drugs because most politicians know that would be disastrous. Saving us from such substances is hardly a breach of civil liberties.
