Weed? (Page 2)
the real slim DEEPy: weed actually has anti-cancer agents, and can be used to treat a myriad of medical conditions. if not decriminalize it, at least allow ill people to grow their own. the marinol pill is legal because pharmacutical company lobbyists work to keep the pill legal and the non-patentable plant illegal, however, medical marijuana (sativa) has much better medical benefits than the pure thc found in marinol. sativa is higher in other cannaiboids that have medical beiefits whereas the pure-thc marinol gets you higher than healthier.
the real slim DEEPy: the first director of the dea said- marihuana makes a colored step on a white mans shadow, look a white man in the eyes and look at a white woman twice. the pr campaign to illegalize marijuana was racial propoganda, while the AMA insisted that the conduct further medical testing before they should consider illegalizing it.
the real slim DEEPy: if one could come up with a cannabis strrin high in cannibinal and without thc, then we would have legal natural marijuana plants. anyone up to the task?
the real slim DEEPy: cannabis indica is the mexican weed ghat the kids get high off of, canabis sativa is medical cannabis and is much lower in thc- the intoxicating agent of marijuana. canabis sativa should not be illegal, and was never meant to be. marijuana is mexican slang for cannabis INDICA. the dea purposly used the term marihuana instead of cannabis to throw the AMA for a loop and make it easier to illegalize.
Zoey234: it's just silly to continue demonizing marijuana in this day and age ... alcohol and cigarettes (which have 67 carcinogens in them) damage people ... not weed
muaabarbi: there has to be freedom!each person has the right to choose what they want to do,flower power♥
girlsasha: weed should not be legalized
some people don't know where and when to smoke pot
the smell is awful
some people smoke that regardless of who's around
weed should not be legalized
i hate the smell of the thing.
lavendar_star: ^^^^ I hate the smell of farts and people do it around me farts need to made illegal and people should be prosecuted.
cookey: I say legalise it for medical purposes. I have severe nerve damage which is only going to get worse as I get older. The medical profession have run out of options for me. Am on medication for the rest of my life tho I don't take em because of the side effects. I still work and provide for my kids but it would be easier if I could find something to relax the muscles.
"weed" does this an is known to the medical profession.
I have been "advised" by my specialist to "take" this herb to relieve the pain!!!
AS soon as it is legalised I'll be the first in the queue!!
casanova4real: theres more profit in pretending that they are stoping drugs than selling it......... the circle will never end
wildmann: Prohibition did not work with regards Alcohol or abortion, and continues to fail in regards to drugs and prostitution. Our so called leaders cant just "ban" things and expect the problem to just go away. Prohibition simply does not work!
Marijana should be legalized and regulated identically to the regulation of alcohol. Don't use and drive...duh
fixed_gear_eH: Is it a danger? I don't care.
Is it a gateway drug? I don't believe so. Alcohol makes you black out if you drink too much. I have known people who somehow ended up in Japan, Germany, etc and had no idea how they got their with a trivial amount of money. So to me alcohol looks like a gateway drug.
Will I end up in prison? I am a white articulate middle class white guy, so probably not. If I was a native, or person of colour, then probably would end up in prison due to lack of resources for lawyers etc. It is T.V. for the mind. colour pop more. Food tastes better. Sounds seem clearer. Is my smile illegal? Sometimes it is. If I smoke too much I cant handle yelling. I like quiet or a stereo to play me some Adele, Judas Priest, Weakerthans, Air supply.
One of the news articles I read years ago when I was not smoking was written by a journalist who had hundreds of thousands in timber stocks that soon would be headed into processing for pulp. He didnt understand the difference between Marijuana (female plant) and Hemp (male plant which contains no thc) Turns out that hemp would have been an option for paper, but marijuana would never make it to paper because many people would be taking pinches till there would be nothing left. There are many pharmacutical drugs that have a far stronger and much more health related dangers involved. You wanna pick: Heroin, percaset, typical sleeping pills can all have devestating side effects.
Weed does not make you wanna go kill people. Pass the pipe/joint/bong please
avalonserene: The government can't tax weed... they can tax alcohol. Alcohol destroys more homes than weed ever has.
wildmann: Sure they can and they should. In fact the city of Oakland, CA is trying to find ways of generating revenue from medical marijana. I don't smoke it, but it should be legalized and regulated the same as alcohol.
