what do you think of legalizing cannabis?

Hi,

I was just wondering, what do you think of legalizing cannabis use?

Do you agree or could you never agree on legalizing drugs?

Myself, i could never agree, I think cannabis is just another step to hard drugs. I also think it is sick when being addicted to alcohol, so i wouldn't mind either there were more laws on this in our country. Here it is allowed to drink alcohol when you're 16, I think this is rather young, especially when you see, lots of youngsters are really drunk every weekend.

so second question; do you thing alcohol is a drug?


p.s. sorry if there is already a thread about this, i did search, but I didn't found one.
p.p.s because some of the other interesting debates were (rightly) locked because  everything turned around the bible, i would really appreciate it if you wouldn't start a religious discussion in here IN ANY WAY! thanks

I'm really looking forward on hearing what you all think...

I don't know what Cannabis is. does it have a second name? or a slang name?

2nd question: No, i do not think alcohol is a drug. ... I think it's alcohol.

I don't agree with it being fully legalized. I do think that doctors should be allowed to provide it for patients who they think genuinely need it but not that it should be made easily available to everyone.

Ahh, weed. Ok. i figured that's what it was, but i'd never heard it called that before. I live in a county that is totally obsessed with drugs. meth, OC, weed, crack, ... you name it, we have it. ... and most people know how to get it. heck, I know where to get it... and i don't even attempt to find out, it just falls into my ear.

People go to pushers and get it now, if it was legal, they'd just have to walk into a store. I don't really think it should be legalized though... because, if you think about it, weed can really make you... well... out of it. And i think i'd be dangerous if you had like, a drive through window for hash. I think that would just encourage "smoking and driving." although, if it was leagalized, it'd keep a lot of ppl i know out of jail...

I don't think it should be legal.
I already see kids at school wasting away their lives by using this crap, so no.

And for medical reasons, maybe.
To ease the pain, but heh.

Some time ago the Canadian government was talking about legalizing it. 

But it's not legal, only for medical purposes.

first i have to tell you i thought your topic was
"what do you think about legalizing cannibals."   

anyway, i don't know if it would do any good legalizing it. there is just so much of it all over, what's the point. it still will be a problem. if you get caught with a small amount, it's only a misdemeanor.

alcohol is a drug in my book. you can get addicted to it as easily as any other drug if it affects your lifestyle.

I think if it was fully legalized then there wouldn't be such a rush for it, as it isn't bad to do it.

There is no forbidden fruit in the system of getting your hands on it. So I don't think it would be that bad to legalized it fully.

I'm neither for it or agasint it.

I hardly think it would send crime rates up either. I mean people would be too stoned to want to do anything lol .

And I do think Alochol is a drug. It is a drug, it is a stimulant. It's addictive like tabacco and other drugs whatever they may be. Such as caffiene is a drug aswell.

LOL! that's what i thought... it's like "What? they're gonna legalize humans eating other humans??" lol 

I don't think this will be much of a debate thread. ... where's the differing views? i think everyone (well, most everyone) would agree that it should only be used for medical purposes as seen fit by the doctors. ahh well, still should be an interesting discussion.

dunno about that, in Belgium there has been some serious thinking about legalizing it! At the last minute they decided it wouldn't be. I know it is legal in the Netherlands too.

It is legal here. And guess what? Where not all junkies.  Nice thread. I'll probably have to dig up research and statistics to counter all the prejudice and misconceptions and tell people we're not a completely stoned and demoralized country....

Although I don't think it should be legalized, I don't think it should carry such a harsh penalty.  I'm approaching this mainly from an economic standpoint.  When people are imprisioned for pot, it wastes government money.  Personally, it makes more sense to just place a fine on ownership of pot.  If there was a fine, the government would gain money rather than lose it.

For the sake of being anal, alcohol is a depressant actually.

To boost tourism.

Haha, glad you're joining this thread. You didn't tell us your opinion though, but I assume you agree with your government on this?

Personally, I think it should be legalized. It's just as dangerous and fun as alcohol and cigarettes in my opinion.

Hmm, i dunno. ... I mean, i know weed isn't a halagenic drug, but i've heard of people halucinating when they're high. Wouldn't this cause it to be more dangerous than cigs? Now alcohol, i dunno about that... because it makes you "get away from yourself" as well, or so i've heard. but i still don't think you halucinate when you're drunk, do you?

Well, maybe it is a halagenic drug. now that i'm thinking about it, i can't really remember. I know lsd and pcp are... but i can't remember about marajauna.
