Re: What's the Main reason you want Cannabis legalised?
I'm 63. When I was in college (1967-71), marijuana became popular. I was not into the hippie culture. All the benefits of marijuana you hear of today were going around then. At that time I thought, yeah, sure...just excuses for people to legalize it just so they can get high.
After college and a good job, I got acquainted and became good friends with a group of about 10 or 12 guys. All were gainfully employed in high paying, responsible and professional positions. We became good friends. After socializing with them a while, at a party I found they all smoked pot. I was shocked. I was offered a joint but refused, told them it was okay with me if they smoked. I was never pressured. After a few years I tried it. I enjoyed it and smoked with them whenever we got together. One of the guys turned out to be a phoney and a loser. He told us about how great cocaine was and offered us some. We all looked at him like he was nuts and none of us fell for his bullshit. He left our group, and we said good riddance.
Since then, we've all moved on and I've lost contact with my good friends. I didn't continue to smoke pot because of legal implications and my employer testing for illegal substance abuse. But I did the research. Today I still do not smoke it, but I'm damned tired of people not doing any real research on marijuana, accepting the utter nonsense behind the keeping of pot illegal, and spouting off the same idiotic nonsense over and over.
Naysayers, for your information, when you've had a little too much alcohol nothing stops you from getting behind the wheel and you can pass out while driving. When you're high on pot, you look for a nice comfortable place to lay down. You don't just drop into unconsciousness like with alcohol.
If you believe pot is harmful, you've not educated yourself and you've bought the lies that lead to continued destruction of beautiful planet all in the name of profit.

I don't need a law to tell me Heroine is bad for me, I don't think most Americans do.

Plus all these substances being illegal immediately creates a black market for them.

If these substances were legal, there would be no mexican drug cartel. 50,000 people near the borders wouldn't be dead. I think that makes up for the few possible addicts that result from the laws.

Re: What's the Main reason you want Cannabis legalised?
I have scolosis also I am a neurofibraosis(sp?) Carrier where tumors can grow inside the body especially the spinal area. While it doesn't affect my skin like my sister the anti cancer, anti tumor properties of cannabis could have helped me treat the tumor when I was about 10 that eventually caused my spine to suffer abnormal growth.

Also we need to be able to grow enough cannabis to BAKE it, and not have to smoke it because we only have a limited supply. One, two ounces is simply not enough.

While it may have helped me before its too late now and I smoke it for pain relief since I can't take painkillers due to my horseshoe kidney condition

Because every "study" done on marijuana to prove that it's bad for us has been proven to be bogus. The powers that be don't want us using marijuana and I guarantee their real reasons are not what they are telling you.

Here in Washington, law enforcement has come out in support of legalizing pot. Catching and incarcerating people for a bit of pot takes up a huge amount of law enforcement resources. A lot of these officers have admitted that even before the measure passed, they had not been enforcing the law - they have bigger fish to fry.

It's simply a double standard to allow alcohol for recreational use, (which by the way has ZERO health benefits, only harm AND a LOT of fatalities) and not allow MJ.

We have at least a two party political system in place, there should also be a two substance recreational use choice.
Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid,

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15610509




No one has mentioned hard drugs. Thought we were talking about weed?

I'd like to see it legalized just because of all the millions of dollars which are spent prosecuting adults caught with an ounce or less. Those dollars could be spent much more wisely on housing the homeless or feeding the hungry, IMHO.

You ask "what about medical Marijuana?". Well, not a lot of people fall into the acceptable categories, and of those who do, most are fairly low-income (because pot is a lot cheaper and has fewer side-effects than prescription drugs) and can ill-afford the skyrocketing "permit fees" (here in Oregon it's gone from $50 a year to $250 a year in under 5 years) charged by State governments who can spot a "cash cow" at 100 yards.

There is no reason that marijuana shouldn't be treated just like alcohol - if you stay home and don't drive, don't give it to kids, and don't show up for work stoned you should be OK. the only reason it's not in the same category as alcohol right now is that TPTB hasn't been able to figure out a way to control and tax it. By the same token, if you inhale and then commit a crime, or drive, or anything else which is forbidden after having a few beers, the punishment should be equally severe. It would certainly free up a lot of tax dollars and Police officers whose talents and training could be better utilized in other, more important, areas.

Besides which, being "illegal" doesn't seem to stop meth heads, crack heads, or heroin addicts. And it is arguable whether or not pot is "addictive" in the strict sense of the word. There has been a huge industry constructed around convincing people that pot is "addictive", and that only a jail sentence or an expensive stay in a "rehab" can "cure" the "hopeless addict". While there ARE a few people with addictive personalities who will inject ANYTHING into their bodies if they suspect that they will get "high", for the most part the greater percentage of pot users are peaceful, law-abiding citizens who hold down respectable jobs, pay their taxes, and just want a little privacy and the ability to relax after a hard day at work.

They are using it to escape their problems! How can you all go to the bar after work, pissed off, and come out tomorrow hung over and sick, waiting for the next change to forget about it all and have a drink!!!!

That is aN ADDICTION, AN EMOTIONALLY CONNECTED HABIT

And NONE of those things happen with people who use pot! Well, except maybe for the "getting pregnant" one, I HEAR that sex can be pretty good when you're "under the influence".
