Why have one drug that impairs judgement be legal and one be illegal. ??????

they both do the same thing.


Except for the fact that pot DOESN'T impair judgement, and gives a completely different buzz than alcohol.
They are not the same even the slightest.



Dude pot impairs judgement. I would know. It just makes you want to go get a pizza are something fun when normally you wouldn't want one. while alcohol make you violent.


What you're describing is the munchies. It is not the same as impaired judgement.


I guess what I am trying to say is that the reason the government Keeps it illegal is because they say it impairs judgement. But they keep alcohol legal.

lol bored as shit and I happened to come across this topic :)

The only problem with marijuana is that it is an introductory soft drug to the harder drugs like Ice and Coke.
It, like tobacco, is a natural product which grows of trees, bar the fact that it may be sprayed with extra chemicals.
It should be legalised, because tobacco and alchohol are relatively the same in harm, if not worse. (mentally and physically)
All three have their same issues to, i.e. Addiction, and the things people will do to cure that addiction.
Unlike hard drugs, these soft drugs are RELATIVELY cheaper, so people do not have to resort to as much crime as they would if addicted to the hard stuff.

Ive thogh about this and believe that decent people with enough money to afford to smoke and drink are not likely to move onto harder drugs because what they are doing is legal and hence they may stay within those boundaries. It does not help that smoking and drinking is also more sociably acceptable. If weed was legal, people who smoked it may have the same view.
Because marijuana is illegal, people think that "hey, if im already breaking the law, how much worse is it if I try eccies, ice, or coke?"

There isnt much really, except for the high cost, which drive people towards higher end crime.

so, marijuana should be legalised. Obviously there are issues with this, because it fucks with your brain a little, but so does alchohol.

alternatively,

Ban alchohol and tobacco, and then governments should then work a way to crack down on organised crime.
Oh wait, but people love to drink, this will never change.

So legalise marijuana!

You dont really care if other people smoke or drink anyway, so long as they don't do it in a manner which affects ur well being, i.e. in their own households away from the public etc.
Legalise marijuana and let potheads enjoy getting blazed within the confines of their home

The reason it's illegal has nothing to do with how it effects a person. It's illegal because the government would lose more money trying to tax it then they would gain from doing so. Although marijuana is illegal there is no real active entity working to get it out of the country. Well, there is but the efforts are completely lack luster. Think of it like this, you get caught with marijuana, You get a slap on the wrist and maybe a fine. You get caught with cocaine and you go to prison. Pot for the most part is ignored unless law enforcement actually sees it. And to save face, they tell you it's "illegal". and put it on paper to make it official. The united states is ass backwards when it comes to drug control. An example. Dimethyltryptamine, A naturally occurring compound that's in well..... nearly anything that's alive, is illegal in the united states. Carcinogens, Or cancer causing substances, Like tobacco, are legal. Alcohol is legal. Both of these substances have several times the destructive reaction to the human body than marijuana. Yet marijuana is the one that's illegal. Makes sense right?

Don't take this as me being pro drug use. I'm not. I don't think it's a good idea to put anything in your body that wasn't there to begin with. But of all the illegal drug that exists. marijuana is the least dangerous. I've never heard of anything dying from a weed overdose. have you?
Make it legal? sure why not. I won't say it's good for you, but it's not bad either. Hell it's used in some states for medicinal purposes. So it can't be to terrible.

From personal experience when it came to dealing with pot smokers, I swear. They piss me off. They're always so mean to me for no reason, and I think their judgment makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. But I should have expected that, because it has been proven that marijuana corrupts your central nervous system, and motor skills....oh, and short term memory loss. It originally hits your central nervous system to calm you down, so that's why pot smokers usually slurr their words after smoking, and being all loopy...either way it goes, there's a reason why it's illegal. And I wish all drugs didn't exist.

Perhaps they are mean to you for a reason, only that you lack the self-insight needed to understand it.
If you are judgemental towards people, they will be aggressive in return.

Did you really just say marijuana is a gateway drug? Please stop spreading false information.http://stopthedrugwar.org/speakeasy/2009/may/28/research_proves_marijuana_not_ga Neither is it any SLIGHTLY addicting. Coke, that's addicting. Alcohol withdrawals can kill you, because your body is craving it. And so on and so forth. Marijuana withdrawals will cause an increase in irritability.. something that can be easily cured with ...well what do you know ..marijuana! Looks like you have a bit of research to do the next time you're "bored"

well ::smoking a fat blunt:: marijuana does NOT corrupt your central nervous system.. especially since we NATURALLY have cannabinoid receptors in our brain AND stomach http://www.marijuanalibrary.org/brain1.html ::southern accent:: oh my stars ... it appears rats, cats AND dogs also have these natural cannabinoid receptors.. As for the slurring words and being all loopy part.. well that's how you know you smoking on some good shit!

May as well legalise it, people are always curious about it as its not as dangerous as other drugs so it may as well have some regulation. Wouldn't be mad keen myself now.

Ireland should legalise it and steal all the tourists Holland lost when they changed their laws so only Dutch citizen can buy it, God knows we could use the cash.

The worst thing about pot I'd say is that it seem make some people insufferable to be around and there is the odd moron who tries to drive stoned, endangering other people's lives with their stupidity.

I don't think it should be legal. That being said, I do smoke it every now and then. But I've been warned because of my family history I have a high risk of developing schizophrenia from using it.

Drugs affect people in different ways, you never know how one drug may affect those around you. I know this one girl I used to smoke with, she used to be the raddest chick out there and then one day she lost it [She hadn't done any drug other then pot at that stage]. Like if she couldn't get weed she would crouch in the corner swaying back and forth like a lunatic because of her cravings.

Also, people like myself have a trait called "Addictive personalities" meaning we find it easy to get hooked onto something as a major part of our lives. I was a full blown smoker since I was 13-ish and only in the last couple of months have I gone down to maybe a cone or two during the week.

In conclusion, I don't hate it, but seeing the effects it has on some people, it's just not something I believe would benefit society.

It is in my opinion that it should be legalised! Ganja relaxes your whole mental state of mind, it is used medically and I have seen the effect it has on cancer related patients, My uncle was on keemo therapy and it was very distressing to see him like that I even helped get ganja just to ease his pain.Ganja should not be legalised because it may cause today's young generation to be more drab and it may cause distancing of kids from the rest of society, I say kids cause the majority of users are young adults and teenagers.I personally think that it is not wrong and it should be used cautiously, as it can be addictive but on the other hand its the user who gives it the bad name.I HAVE NEVER HEARD SOMEONE DIE FROM A MARIJUANA OVERDOSE,,,,,,BUT THEY DO DIE FROM EXCESSIVE HUNGER CAUSED BY THE WEED(notice i did not say drug cause it is not a drug).Hey how can it be bad if the only side effect is just hunger and the sudden urge to sleep .
