    Because you go insane and stab loads of people then buy guns and shoot up your neighbours because you have schizophrenia. Then you get hooked and then you die.

    Because of society's views on it.

    Alcohol is legal and up there with Heroin in the list of drugs from most dangerous to least dangerous.

    Nothing to do with what the drugs are. =)

    The way I see it, the people who go 'insane' as a result of smoking weed are people who have an underlying mental illness anyway.

    There are millions of people who have a smoke in the comfort of their own home, never harm a soul and never have any mental problems at all.

    If the government were to legalise it, they could tax it and control the selling and therefore take a lot of business from the gangs that run the major selling in this country anyway.

    Not proven and people have to already have the mental illness in them to begin with.
    See, this is what i believe. If you are already mentally ill in some way, of course any drug such as weed is going to worsen things. People who take these things to "deal" with issues they have in life will face problems...others who take it purely for recreational reasons, wont have much issues i dont think. I know someone who has smoked this rubbish like normal cigerrates for over 20 years and they lead a normal bloody life....*touches wood, it will continue that way*
    Of course im not a scientist, but just going by what ive seen.

    You might be right

    They could tax it like cigarrettes and alcohol but they dont want to

    They still tax it, through fines, raids and cigarrettes

    Having some stoners and they make money, having too many and they fall

    See my last post i explained things
