hmmm, want to do a quick poll here about cannabis.

please poll your experience with it.

good/bad about it.

does it deserve to be reclassed class C, should it be legalised?

i know this has been done before, but i dont want to resurrect an old thread.

if it turns to mindless chatter this is where all the hairy hippies can hang out

There's another missing option

"haven't smoked it, but been offered it"

I've heard mixed stories about it, i've heard it's not as bad as cigarettes as there isn't tar, but i also heard that cannabis can screw up your brain and can cause defects in babies. I don't think Cannabis is any worse than Alcohol so i think it should be legalised. It will take away business from drug dealers which can only be a good thing too.

it does cause cancer tho, also the experiment in portugal (i think) and holland were failures as all we would do is attract the stoners from the rest of the world here which isnt a good thing. We dont actually need this stuff

I really believe that if Cannabis and Alcohol were presented as new substances today, and that one had to be made illegal, Alcohol, not Cannabis, would be the one chosen.

So does cigarettes, so does deodorant, what doesn't cause cancer nowadays according to the scientists? Alcohol leads to loss of brain cells, it can lead to unemployment and many other things too.

This is where the sixteen year old american druggie guy (me) can actually provide some help.

The big MJ is actually nearly as unhealthy as cigarettes, as you can see here:

http://www.erowid.org/plants/cannabi...is_info3.shtml

If i knew the drug systems in the UK i would understand better what you meant by class C. Here we have scedule l, scedule ll, and scedule lll drugs. Scedule l's resulting in least punishment and lll's resulting in highest. I believe that the drug is a scedule l here in the US, and i'm not sure if that is the same as the class C you have there or not.

Seeing as many people are trying to demote simply public cigarette smoking, i think you would have more people arguing to be able to do that before even toking up legally at their homes, although i certainly wouldn't mind it, even if i'm not that heavy of a cannabis smoker myself.
