If I read this right, then most of the problems are being caused in border towns by drug trafficking into surrounding countries and all of the partiers and knuckleheads coming in from border countries to tear it up, so to speak, for a weekend. Kind of how many people pick up hookers in Las Vegas now since it is legal there and basically nowhere else. Nobody goes to Las Vegas to look at the flowers. It is party spot USA. Also, the law says it is ok to sell and smoke, but not ok to grow? Well, where in the hell do they think the pot will be coming from? It doesn't just appear out of thin air. It has to be brought in to be legal, right? So, that means if they simply allow growing, many of the problems would stop. It also means that by creating this law, they have essentially created their own black market problem with it. It's the cafe's bringing in tourists just to be able to smoke. And, to be able to smoke, they have to bring weed inside the country from other sources, they aren't allowed to grow it there according to the article. If they legalize it to be grown, owned, and smoked anywhere in the country, along with border countries, most of the problems would stop in my opinion.amsterdam legalized it way back when and is now changing that policy.
do you wonder why?
obviously, they have learned the lesson. illicit drugs are not good for society.
personally,I don't think we should legalize drugs. but I believe the only way for people to finally understand this is to allow it to be legalized. see the results.
amsterday learned. the usa will learn.
not as bad as alcohol? imagine double the number of dui. maybe even more...
drugs make you stupid. don't believe me? watch repo-man on tv. check out what's happening on capitol hill.
Also, if you are stupid, you are stupid, but if you are bright, a little pot here and there isn't going to put the light out. Again, if you read my post above about how pot allowed my cousin's life to be saved from cancer at the age of 23, you will understand my stance on pot smoking. She is a very important person in my life, we are very close, and I couldn't imagine her not being here to be able to bring the beautiful children into the world that she has. I don't like it for myself, I would rather go fishing, for a hike in the woods, or take a trip to the Sierra Nevada Mountains to think and relax, but for some people, it works wonders and is no more harmful, in fact less harmful than alcohol or prescription sedatives. Let people be able to relax, or be healed, how they feel so long as it isn't hurting anyone else, as pot doesn't.
