Weed is getting closer to legalization.

Your thoughts?
Personally I welcome it since about 70% (I think) of Canadians want the plant to be legal, Our prime minister Jean Chrétien tried to legalize marijuana, in small amounts, but the U.S. and the D.E.A. (Drug enforcement agency) did not like the idea and pretty much threw a wrench into his plan. That and there have been over 20 international studies saying the drug is no more harmful than alcohol and would be better off legalized. If the U.S begins to move towards a more liberal stance on pot than it will be easier to finally get cannabis legalized in my country, provided we can get the Conservatives here to change their view on marijuana, since they seem to be aiming for an American style war on drugs, something which likely will not come to fruition because of the other parties views in our Parliament.
I hope this happens got my fingers crossed for those law makers across the border trying to legalize pot and wish them good luck.

I really don't care. I would never smoke any myself though, it's the same as cigarrettes or alcohol.

I still don't get why it's illegal but alcohol and cigarettes, which cause more deaths and damage than weed, are legal.

Chrétien isn't prime minister anymore...ummm...anyway, Harper will never legalize cannabis,he's too big of a pussy. He doesn't want to anger the US so we can keep our economy a float. So, if it does happen, it won't be in a couple years.

(this is kind of old news)

I know Jean is not prime minister I used him as an example of how he once tried to legalize it.
And this particular news is not so old since because of the recession some states are looking for options on how to fix their economies.

Could have to do with many factors , peoples personal beliefs (They do not have to be religious), Americas war on drugs ,or misconceptions about the drug held by some people.

That's a bold statement, I have found many great non douches that smoke weed from great poets, musicians, artists, and political figures. Perhaps you have had some bad experience with weed smokers. You should not throw one label on a group of people who enjoy a particular recreational drug.

How does smoking pot make somebody a "douche"? LAME.

I already experienced being distorted due to narcotics used in a major surgery. I don't really like it.
Sure, it gives me 10 years worth of imagining new porn and anime visuals/ideas that could make me a serious fortune, but I don't like having bed sores and have the feeling that the gravity shifts sideways all the time instead downward.

How weak-minded am I to rely on drugs just to get inspired like any other artist who uses drugs?
Even though it's subconscious, I really like to take over things by myself.

i don't see why they don't just legalize it already. i smoke after work almost everyday. i take care of my shit, pay my bills, do what i gotta do and then wen i finally have some free time to relax i start by smokin some. i've never smoked weed and then wanted to go out hurt somebody. michael phelps smoked pot and he won how many gold medals at the olympics.

I don't see why not to make it legal. Just like Yei, I don't think I would ever want to do marijuana, it's just not something I want to do. Just because I don't want to do it doesn't mean I want it illegal, let people do what they want. Getting high is somehow so much worse than killing your kidneys getting drunk constantly, somehow it is.

The decisions to make marijuana illegal are decisions made by ignorant buffoons, and if you're that ignorant about an issue and you make it illegal, you're also a dumb ass. It's going to take a while for marijuana to be legalized due to the fear shove up people's asses by the media.

Also, drug dealers (illegal ones) will be getting less income if this change happens, AND people can't get other (much worse) drugs if they only know how to get marijuana from a store. I think that's a nice plus.
