dont tax it, nobody would buy it that way. They would still go to their own dealers.
Everybody's saying it'll be cheaper, in Poland vodka costs about 8-10 USD for 500ml and 80% of the price is taxes. 1g of weed should cost less than 5 USD but in reality it could be even more expensive than standard 30zl (~15USD) because of taxes.
"I just read a small article about the subject, and came to the conclusion considering alcohol and tobacco are far worse than weed, legalizing the drug my not be a bad idea"
And just now you came to that conclusion? :D
We had a finn running the European Antidrug Agency, he openly stated that cannabis should be legal. He is not running the agency anymore. Brave statement from him.
He used Portugal as prime example; All drugs became decriminalized in Portugal in 2001. The drugreleated violence and deaths have decreased almost 50%. Then again weed was no drug there, it's tolerated almost allover Europe
hate to smoke, don't care.
Yeah, people end up in prison beacue of marijuana, that's stupid.
It doesn't matter. Everybody who even consider the possibility that plants might be outlawed from earth is too stupid to be talked to. I'm not against so called 'legalisation', I'm against the discussion. There's no one to talk about it with.
Also, tax your ass dude.
Yes it should. I don't know why its such a big deal. Look at the Netherlands its been legalized for years and its just fine
Impossible in my country
But around the world , yes.
Not legalized by decriminalized!
Definitely yes. Actually it was legalized in Ireland one year ago. Joints, bag of legal weed were selling in shops. Also some kind of "EX-COCAINE" ^_^.
^ it works pretty good. Some why no one sells it anymore in the shops :| that weed was goooood.
no ofc not then I wouldn't have job at all
I think not. Besides I don't understand people who wants kannabis/marijuana to legal.
It should. The fact that it is actually illegal causes masses of illegal activity, that yearly, spends a lot of the government's money and law enforcements time.
Legalizing it wouldn't really also have any negative effects. Like general tobacco, it would be made a 16 or 18 year old and over thing and it's unlikely that the streets will suddenly be enraged with high gangster wannabes as the people who have stayed away from it in the past, will likely continue to stay away from it in the future.
It's also been proven to not actually harm your body much in any way, and neither has it ever really killed a person. In all honesty, both alcohol and cigarettes are worse yet they are still legal.
if you compare it to smoking or alcohol it definitely should be legalized rather than those 2
If people wanna undermine their brains slowly, so let them :p
Yes, -but wait mates, also must have a state support for cure those who wish to get rid of their addiction ,optionally, in my country that is a valid argument to discuss
marijuana was once legal nation wide... but somewhere in history some asshol3 decided to make it illegal (points to the us)
Don't know any argument against marijuana. I don't smoke nothing, but that's not about that. Really, people should have choice.
Yeah, it should be legalized! :)
salvia should be legal. god dam it.
Firstly: If you would ever experience a Psychosis because of Marijane I am pretty sure you would think twice about your Statement Alcohol and Tabacco are worse for the human being.
But my Opinion to the Mainquestion.
It's a Fact that Drugs took place into this World and also that this Reality won't change and gives room for Criminality.
So because of this simple Fact I really think all Drugs worldwide should be lagalized and strictly controlled by their States.
I am not a Drug Consumer anymore like I was in my younger Years, but this seems to be the only real Solution to control the Devils Ground, cause you can't conjure all Drugs away from this Earth cause you would have to destroy every single Guy involved into the whole criminal Drugsystem and the current Situation proves it wouln't work out for our worldwide Law Systems in general.
And don't undertsand me wrong. What I am saying, I am saying because I know this whole Drugshit and this Methode would be exactly necessary for those still dumb Motherfuckers wasting their Lives with Drugs and to protect them.
And ofcourse it's totally important to clarify every young human being already in school in terms of drugabuse. Just to make them know about it, even if we all know that many, many young Souls won't listen to their Teachers and rather suck the Devil's Cock cause they are just not mindbroaded enough to realise the whole mess. ;)
In America they make too much money from having people in jail, it's a business. This is why they wont make it federally legal.
There is a reason they have the highest prisoners per capita rate, it's because they make money from it. America has revoloutionised slavery.
"In 2010, black men were incarcerated at a rate of 3,074 per 100,000 residents; Latinos were incarcerated at 1,258 per 100,000, and white men were incarcerated at 459 per 100,000.4 Since 2007, however, the incarceration rate in the United States has tapered slightly and the 2010 prison population saw a decline—of 0.3 percent—for the first time since 1972, according to the BJS."
Punishments are way too high in Poland for having marijuana in pocket/house. Jail for few grams? Thats crazy. Maybe because almost every kid tried marijuana in my school. That's not good too...
I dont know how it's in other countries
yes, and I don't smoke. I think people don't have to be afraid just because they like to smoke.
“It's just the stupidest law possible... You're just making criminals out of people who aren't engaged in criminal activity. And we're spending zillions of dollars trying to fight a war we can't win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor. It's stupid.”
Completely agree with this statement.
honestly i don't give a fuck about that. I will smoke it, legalized or not.
You don't give a damn about this subject when you're old enough to understand it's stupid to smoke weed.
To legalize marijuana is not to sell marijuana, if this plant was legalized the law should be like 2 plants for each house/person and only to self-consumption.
Well legal things are not cool so I think it will reduce the amount of hobo's and lung cancer deaths.
Marijuana is bad, mkay.
Drugs are bad, mkay.
ofc yes, plants shouldn't be illegal.
DRUGS are shitty, cocaine, -H- and other shit that can kill people, but not Mary Jane; it should be legal
The only harm of cannabis is by keeping it illegal, for various political reasons and aspects many old folk in my country want to keep it that way. You have to keep in mind that harmfulness of the substance doesnt matter for politicians but its the aftermath.
People who see cannabis as a cancer need to cheerish some aspects such as "Why should I be the one deciding for other peoples choiches?", "How come youth start smoke cannabis?", "Which consequenses to society happens when dealers have power of the plant?" just to name a few.
Sadly I believe Sweden will one of the few last countries to legalize it within a 15-30 years period from now.
no, it should not be legalized.
with tobaco + alcohol there are 2 civilized drugs, which causes many fucking bad things, ppl get ill, ppl get addicted, ppl die.
was addicted 3 years, smoking weed every day, as just a fucking lazy zombie. added amphetamine, tried cocain, xtc and all the other shit, even methamphe. using weed + amphetamine every day, all other drugs only at weekend.
needed a therapy of alltogether 7 months to get back to life, which i enjoy even more than b4 all that shit. still got some friends who slightly smoke a joint, but divorced to ppl who seeing drugs as the main thing of their life. 1 of them died alrdy on cocain, all other are >30, jobless, some homeless, no teeth, no family, all fucked up.
that doenst mean that all of the guys who smoke pod several times will get addicted and try other things like the chemical stuff, but the chance is there and i cant see why i should play the devils game. rlly sad when seeing 14 year old kids here in berlin sniffing the white shit, cause their life is as sad as you cant imagine, so they have a bit fun for a few hours and jsut ignore what they do to their bodie.
To people that do drugs etc: Grow the fuck up.
I can kill you if isee you smoking illegal substance, you migth be dangerous and carry illegal guns too. think twice about smoking in public at least, migth be more psychos like me.
In Holland the government only ignores it, its not really ligalized. But this way the government can legaly deal drugs right under our own noses. They make millions of tax money from coffeeshops. Coffeeshops have to pay huge taxbills every year. Probably a good thing to legalize, your country will be richer. Although every drug that remains illegal will take the place of the drug thats ligalized, so criminals will always continue dealing. This is what u see here in holland with XTC. So when u ligalize this one, the other one will take over. Always gonna be that way.
