Amen, mah brutha! AMEN!Oh well fire in the hole!
Yeah, the debate shall continue. Roll, smoke, roach, then roll again. This thread is like a ****ing red-eyed, hungry phoenix: Goes up in smoke, then a couple of weeks later or something, comes back for another hit from the bong.
As I've stated before, a large percentage of Canadians smoke pot. So much so that Canada has one of the largest pot smoking population per capita.
Canada Leads World in Marijuana Use | Mostly Water
According to the United Nations World Drug Report in 2007, 16.8% of those ages 15-64 years of age smoke pot. The population of Canada is roughly 33.9 million people, so 16% of that is 5.6 million.
In the United states, 12.6% of those 15-64 use pot. The population of the US is 303.8 million people, do the math and that's 38.2 million people.
If the pot smoking population is that large, then where are all the people who have had their lives ruined by pot alone. With that many people using it, you would see a lot of people walking around Dazed and confused. But thats not the case. I walk down the wrong street in the bad side of town and I see more people tweeked out on coke and meth then the stoners (Which tend to congregate around the local Burger shops and 7/11s.)
I'm not denying that pot can sometimes be bad in the hands of those who can't use something like that responsably, but it really isn't that bad as its made out to be.
You peons need to get on point and stop trailing off in my thread with BSing talk about how funny some of the commercials are. Get that sh-t out of here.
New Studies suggest smoking Marijuana increases your chances of developing the Testicular Cancer nonseminoma.
Marijuana Linked to Aggressive Testicular Cancer - healthfinder.gov
However, testicular cancer is still very rare only effecting as little as 1% of cancer patients. Nevertheless it is still the most common type of cancer for American men between the ages 15-35.
And either way anti drug commercials shouldn't be cheesy if they seriously want to make people not do drugs.
Speaking of which, even if Pot by your standards is nearly harmless, (KenX), it's totally screws people up financially. The main way I ever got caught is because of how much money I was spending.
KenX, My response was not on part of the physical harm as the jury is still out because one research says its bad and the other says its harmless so that’s not what I am arguing about but rather mental as well as behavior changes caused by it which is what I was getting at that flew over your head apparently.
Also, like Atomic has said, it can not be regulated, it is to easily grown, why else do they call it weed, it’s because it grows fast and grown damn near any where. It literally is a weed. Also you say that if it was made legal dealers would be put out of a "job" you couldn’t be even further from the truth. Like any good business men would do when competition pops up, you lower the price to compete. So you can get the legal pot for say $15 bucks a pack. The illegally grown can be then soled at just $10 bucks a pack... Which one are you going to buy? They are both the same just one is cheaper. Not to mention that the illegally grown could also be laced and sold as a different "flavor" which is in fact harmful but the legal pot will not because of its effects. But because it is legal, there isn’t much any one could do about it other then doing the same damn thing we are doing now. We will still be fighting it, still be spending tons of money, and now the more harmful versions which are laced with who knows what become more prevalent.

"MY DEAR... I GIVE YOU THE CAPELLAN CONFEDERATION"AND THUS THE WAR WAS STARTED NOT BY GUN SHOT BUT BY WEDDING BELLS
I'd think that the weed will still be grown and the prices would be lower than the stores prices because of taxes, the only reason weed is 10$ for a dime for now is so that the initial growers and providers (your dealer) can make money.
But don't mind me cause its just an what I think...
I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!
sorry for my english!!
I think that there is one true (but not the only true): the governs can't decide if Marijuana is legalize or not, it's simply a plant!!!!!
