    Of course it should be legalised. I don't even know where opposition to it comes from these days?

    you sound like a miserable lowly git, to be honest.

    names such as president obama and bill gates aren't lowly gits, nor are countless musicians and actors, who've achieved a lot more than you have.

    you seem to have a bitter disposition against pot smokers, whats the matter did they pick on you too much?
    They stink like crap for one. If Obama and Gates do weed they're lowly gits as well which explains the state of modern society if people this influential behave this way without a care.

    Millions die from alcohol each year, literally no one dies from weed - that's enough information for me

    No people die from excess usage which is made easier by widespread access.

    Weed in any amounts just makes you chill, relax and enjoy yourself. I've never seen weed ruin a social event, you're spouting ignorance

    I wish I had more rep but you put it perfectly.
    Drugs are not as frequent as alcohol or smoking, i'd say that's a success. Has the war on murder been lost because sometimes people are murdered? Should we just legalise it and tax it.

    It should be, but the current policies of politicians are massively influenced by the question of "what will appeal to people aged 50 and upwards?"

    It's so obvious that you are nowhere near as wealthy or sophisticated as you are trying to make out with this post

    Yes I do. I smoke weed every day, but it was this wise man who convinced me that it should be made legal:

    Sure. Plenty of things that are not good for people are legal and socially acceptable to eat, drink and smoke. I see no reason why people shouldn't be legally allowed to smoke weed. I don't smoke it, but people should be able to if they wish.

    That's a terrible analogy, More like a war on buggery don't you think?

    Weed smelling like crap is a opinion, plenty of people like the smell, but based on your ignorant posts so far i have no doubt you believe only your opinion can be correct.

    Can't tell if your other point about Obama and Gates smoking is even serious, you were probably one of those predicting a collapse in Colorado if it was legalized, only for it now to have reduced crime and raised millions in taxes. Seemingly all of your points are based on nothing but ignorance and prejudice, seemingly the only reason cannabis remains illegal.

    Not the only, but surely its a fairly major one?

    When we then consider the side effects and the possibility of becoming addicted to alcohol and cannabis compared, surely cannabis comes out on top once again?

    This is only true for people who started smoking cannabis when they were under 18 and continued using it into adulthood so heavily that it was classified as an addiction. Also, other studies have found flaws in the original study.

    Yes, it is also known to cause schizophrenia, BUT only in developing minds. Which is why I support it if the age was 21, almost everyone is fully developed at 21 mentally so it has negligible affects on the brain.

    Their isn't a strong argument against it for medicine uses, cannabis is much better than a depression pill that can cause so many side effects like wanting to commit suicide.

    But for normal use, the reason it isn't legalized is because they say it becomes socially acceptable, which leads onto harder drugs which are not socially acceptable in order to look cool or get a stronger fix, and they like heroin have much worse effects.
    It almost never is a gate-way drug only a very small amount of people who use cannabis go on to try harder drugs.
