So you're saying that this stuff will happen if it's made legal...and what does prohibition do to stop any of that from happening now? On one hand, we have a prohibitive policy that does nothing to reduce usage rates and on the other we have a regulatory regime that serves to mitigate the problems that come about as a result of drug use...why is it that people like you are determined to keep a prohibitive policy around? It does nothing, costs a LOT of money and in fact makes things worse overall.

Every dollar that is spent on prohibition is a dollar that could be spent on drug education, education in general, health care, more important law enforcement priorities or any other number of needs that are always short changed.

It’s hilarious…people like you throw this idea out there that if something is legalized, it means that people in bunny costumes will be prancing through the streets handing drugs out like candy.“Oh well if it’s made legal, people will start to use it.” News flash…people are already using drugs…ad that’s never going to stop. We have kept a policy failure alive for almost a century and we keep on pushing it forward with the feeble excuse that things will be better next year or that we’re winning that war on drugs. Guess what…it’s not working, won’t work and is fundamentally flawed. Drug prohibition is a moral law and moral laws can not be forced upon an independent and free society. What you believe to be morally correct may indeed be morally correct but that does not mean that your moral values may be enshrined in law.

It’s laughable that in a free society, we are told that we can not ingest something like pot. Alcohol, tobacco and sugar…sure…bit not pot. You ever tried to drop sugar for a week? Try it…no sugar, no caffeine or whatever drug it is you ingest…just try it for a week. I guarantee you’ll have a tougher time “kicking” the legal stuff that’s out t here than any pot user.

Right, and if it were only legal to grow your own or perhaps pick some up at the local recreational drug store (currently called the liquor store) than you wouldn't HAVE to know a grower or "trusted source"

Aside from your post there being some what incomprehensible, it was kinda stupid too, I'm sure you can find a case here and there of laced weed being consumed by some one...but aside from rare incidents, what do you have? Any stats or numbers behind that one? Nah...and even if you did have any stats or numbers, it would just be one more reason to regulate this substance.

You know what's getting old Harold? What's getting old is the idea that people shuld be locked up for growing a plant that's used for clothing, fuel and recreation. What's old is the idea that people should be stigmatized for enjoying themselves. What's old are the laws of prohibition.

You don't think that a law that was introduced with no debate in the House of Commons should be re-examined? You don't think that a law based on hatred and racism should be re-examined? You don't think a law that was introduced under the pretences of mass insanity and crime sprees (Cause you know all cannabis users freak out, rape people and go rob shops day and night) should be re-examined?

Cannabis prohibition is what's old Harold nd it's time we renewed our sense of right and wrong to fit with the bloody times.

BC bud kicks ass everyone can agree on that one. But it needs to be regulated, like alcohol is. People are going to smoke it no matter what, but very few ppl can honestly tell you they know for sure that the pot is or isnt laced with meth.
Good Honest ppl are getting there lives SCREWED OVER!! Somone needs to govern weed and regulate the shit so ppl dont get addicted to meth unknowingly. IT could possibly be a larger problem then people are willing to admit.

Oh I see...maybe Swede is signing his generic first name in an attempt to appear as though he is a credible person...but he has come up short. Not surprising.
