oh yes the government are just gonna make weed cheaper arent they?

its stupid that weed's illegal. alcohol is worse. its not like you can overdose on weed. its just bullshit. i just got busted and my friends have got caught too. we shouldnt be gettin in trouble for a herb. its not a drug, its a plant. who gives a shit if people smoke pot, its not bad at all. it should be legalized and sold through the government, it wouldnt be laced, it would be good(gov bud is kickass) and it would bring in money to the federal gov't. so why bother wasting money tryin to stop people from smoking. pothead are loyal and we're never gonna stop.

weed should be legal... if weed was legal, more people would grow it, and grow a LOT of it so the prices would go way down, also hemp(byproduct of weed) is moreuseful and cheap than cotton. if weed was legal, giant companies like marlboro and shit would sell doobies for hella cheap and it would be a good day! the reason weed go outlawed in 1950s in the first place is because of the du-pont conspiracy. right around that time, a new hemp sorting machine was created that would produce hemp that is cheaper, stronger and easier to make than cotton so, it was outlawed.

also... weed is better for you than tobacco and alchohol put together. tobacco and alchohol cause perminant damage to your body, and have highly addictive traits. weed has no lasting effect on your body and the only negative part of it is temporary memory loss (but fuckit) and there is no such thing as a physical addiction to weed, the only people who are "addicted" to weed are people who are addicted to the high and not the drug it's self. there are also no withdrawl symptoms when quitting weed.


1 bowl = 10+ cigs

im a nonsmoker, my lungs feel just fine after smokin weed, but when i smoke a cigarette i feel the fuckign tar in my lungs for days and days!! this is just not right, someone needs to put a stop to this shit, looks the the man wins again. its only because tobacco&alchohol companies have financial superiority that they havent been outlawed and weed was. its a fucking outrage! i just cant wait till this stoner generation gets to voting age and get into congress and shit like that, it will be happy days for me!

and also... thanks for reading my long ass rant, thank you for your 20 minutes of time heres a present for you..... ( . ) ( . ) boobies!!!!11 :shock:

You people saying there's nothing wrong with marijuana are wrong. Of course it has it's bad things, but the thing is..alcohol in my opinion is much more dangerous to you when under the influence of it, because when I get drunk I do some crazy shit. But when I have some cones, I sit back and relax - not harming anyone, but I'm sure the slight paranoia that you get from weed might lead to certain things happening that normally wouldn't. Alcohol though - it leads to much worse things. They call marijuana a gateway drug? Fuck off, alcohol is a gateway drug! I've been offered all sorts of different drugs (Including coke) while I was drunk, and it took everything in me to turn it down - which alot of people would not be able to do...

Well, that's my 2c anyway :wink:

I find most people that are against the usage of marijuana is because they are poorly educated on the subject.

They believe marijuana is the door leading to harder drugs, has for some feel that it is a hard drug itself. And for the most part, theses people have never smoked a joint and only repeat what they hear from others. All the negative, of course.

Like most of you said in this thread, its not physicly addictive, no withdrawls when quitting etc etc.

I say legalize pot, but add some side-laws to it. Household smoking only, and in specific weed cafe's where the eledgible age is the adult age of the country, for example, Canada, would be 18+.

The only way I can see that weed should not be legalized, is if it is scientificly proven that it kills.

But then, cigarettes do.. yet, that's legalized.

Some may bring up the fact that minors would attempt to purchase marijuana or enter marijuana cafe's. But.. minors attempt to buy cigarettes and try their shot at entering a bar with or without cards, hell.. im still 17 and I admit to it. Don't forget, minors buy marijuana off dealers. So if a high quality marijuana(good THC lvl) at a fair price is introduced by the goverment, it would draw dealers out of business to a certain extent, and minors would have more difficulty purchasing this drug.

ok im done :P

I honestly can't see why weed is illegal, like we all know alcohol and cigs are so much worse, yet they are legal..why? because the gov. can profit big time off them. Yet with pot, the demand isn't high enough and like some of u said. People don't focus on the good parts, only the false bad parts.

I smoked a cig about 3 weeks ago and got sick, and will not do it again, yet when i smoked my first joint...i felt fine.

When i first drank i got sick...u get the point. Luckily our gov. is getting closer to decriminlizing it so i won't get jail time or some fucking shit on my record. And just the other day they announced that in B.C. (British Columbia) they are planning to test how medicinal pot will do in the summer. 30 grams for 150$! damn thats a good deal...hopefully it'll be legal for sick ppl then i'm good to get it...my uncle has authority (or WILL have it) to prescribe it to ppl...he smokes it and knows i smoke it so i'm in the loop :).


But what im afraid of is if the gov. makes it legal then they'll tax it like a bitch, and as the poster above me knows, quebec has some crazy high taxes. Not to mention the gov. might sell shitty bud. (buy it from the lowest seller and then just market it) anyway i'm out

Does it even really matter if pot is legal, I mean yeah, connections get arrested a lot, but even so, you still get weed, theres no tax, and you still sit at home and smoke a joint. Porn is illegal until you are 18, but kids like me jerk off to it all the time, laws dont stop you. Plus, not enough people would elect a president trying to legalize pot, plus, the senate would never pass a law like that. So theres really no way to make it legal in current times. But alas, we can all still toke up even if its against the political word.

This subject gets me very upset. I dont see any of the reason why we cant sit down and smoke a joint. I mean at the age of 18, we can go out and fight for our country, and die for our country, and at the age of 21, we can go and get drunk at a bar. But we cannot even sit at home and smoke pot. It really doesnt make any sense to me. Why is it that it is always okay for us to do something for our country, but our country doesnt do anything for us? I mean ciggarettes are 100 hundred times worse than smoking pot, but thats legal. And they cant use the fact that it messes your mind up, because i have been smoking pot since i was in the 6th grade, i am now enrolled in college, and have a great talent for drawing. I hold a job, and i smoke more pot now than ever. So i wish that they could give us a good rason why we cant smoke pot, just one freakin reason, then maybe i'll be happy. :twisted:
hehe we can go get pissed at a bar at 18 :spliff:

I've seen this happen in my town, drunks fucking up the skate park where we skate and throwing broken bottles on the beach, stupid fuckers.
But us stoners, we just smoke a bit and chill at someone's house watching a movie, mayby go out and get food. So what the fuckin hell is wrong with that?
i completly agree! when im smashed, i'm i'm way too hiped up, and vandelize anything that i can't break with no effort (glass bottles, cheap signs, tree branches) basically im a recless fuck!

but if im high, and wandering the streets... i just keep walking enjoing my high.

i deffinatly think pot would actually make our country safer, because when everyone's blitzed no-one want's to fight, but if your drunk, you'ss fight someone for the sake of fighting.

Man... although there are many resons why weed should be legal, Hemp is not one of them. Why would you want to ware cloths that are itchy as fuck? and if you make anything else out of it, it's flamable. Although in someways it can be usfull, it's just not a good point to argue. stoners have been using hemp as an excuse to legalize marijuana alot, and the gov. comes up with a million ways why it's full of bullshit.

It is llegal to make your own alcohol, except beer. But beer doesn't cause alcohol poisoning, and goes rather good with herb.

Now, I do agree that there is no reason this shit shouldn't be legal. I'm pretty pissed about it myself. But there is nothing we can do. Every time it gets on the ballot, the pot heads don't come out in strong enough numbers. Hmm I wonder what they're too busy doing.. :roll:

I think i'd rather decriminalization, if legal, it would be pumped full of shit like nicotine and other sleazy products, to get people addicted
