Alchohol can be a dangerous drug but we must accept that we cant ban it.
We know about the long term effects of alchohol abuse and we know and can define what alchohol abuse is.
Cannabis can be a dangerous drug and it is already 'banned'.
We know that both drugs are dangerous so what good would it do us to have two dangerous legal drugs.
There is agreat deal of evidence to show that cannabis can exacerbate mental illness but there is not a great deal of evidence of the total effect of long term use and the health problems that it may bring.
It took quite a few years for the full evidence of how destructive tobacco was to health..those people today who say how dangerous tobacco is probably had fathers or grandfathers that thought smoking 30 a day was fine!
I never said that smoking a low thc spliff would get you just as wasted as smoking a high thc spliff..just the opposite.
I said that if we have to legalise cannabis then a compromise would be to make a lower thc bud legal but ban the high thc bud or hash because this is far more dangerous.
This has caused much consternation in one poster who seems to think a nice
bit of lower thc hash the same that was about say in the 60s or 70s(enough to get you mellow and a little high) is far more dangerous than white widow or chronic( enough to get you wasted if you either dont know what you are doing or are a heavyweight toker).
