>>16647953 Yes. I live in WA and I voted in support of it, even though I have no desire to partake. I have been around it enough and done enough research on it to know it's far less harmful than shit that's already legal. It's bringing it a lot of needed tax dollars. Our state is not allocating them in the way I wanted (I want them to go almost entirely to roads and education), but I have hope they will adjust their budgets in coming years to reflect that.
I smoke it very rarely because it makes me anxious. But I have a lot of friends that use it for a multitude of symptoms that would otherwise be treated with shitty drugs with shitty side effects. I'm not okay with people rotting in prison or having their lives fucked up in some other way, over something as insignificant as pot possession. Plus if it were legalized it would be better for the economy, provide jobs, be a lot safer (no risk of it being mixed or "cut") etc etc.
>>16647953 Yes because: >Criminalizing it just causes unnecessary cost for the state and other institutions >Might destroy the future of people with loads of potential, just because they got caught with a joint in their pockets >It will be easier to control the consumation and acutally keep consumers away from dangerous stuff >Alcohol is worse than weed in my opinion so why not. You can drink yourself to death but not smoke yourself to death in one night atleast >If it is legalized you can proceed to have a more serious and less biased debate over it and educating younger generations about it might even lower the consumation-rate
For example: Look at Portugal They decriminalized all drugs and since then the education about drugs skyrocketed and thus deaths-by-drugs were drastically reduced and actually less people started doing drugs. There are enough sources about this in the interwebs
>>16647981 Oh and btw >all that "it cures cancur" stuff aside, it does actually really help people who suffer from constant pain and who have to take strong painkillers, which is even more dangerous than weed. It is a pain in the ass for those people to get THC and in germany they just get synthetic THC, that is even pricey as fuck.
>>16648025 "But in Portugal, the numbers paint a different story. The prevalence of past-year and past-month drug use among young adults has fallen since 2001, according to statistics compiled by the Transform Drug Policy Foundation, which advocates on behalf of ending the war on drugs. Overall adult use is down slightly too."
Legalization doesn't mean increase of use. That should have been my initial point, sorry.
No interest in weed or smoking same with any other substances including alcohol, but fuck the hypocrisy of the government acting like they give a fuck about the health of its citizens When alcohol, cigarettes and the chemicals and shit they out in processed food is legal, yet people get shot and arrested over a fucking plant
I don't smoke it at all, I avoid people that smoke it too. I think it makes people stupid, lazy, and dependent. It smells gross, makes you eat gross food, is boring to talk about, and I hate looking at dirty hippies.
That being said, I dont believe in prohibiting shit that responsible adults can handle without harming anyone. Be it weed, guns, religion, abortions, gayness, violent video games, whatever.
>>16647953 why dont i smoke? my job and connects. it helps incredibly with nausea and pain and in-part, temporary aid with depression while trying to fix the root problem of that. it also helps with meditation
>>16648043 >yet people get shot and arrested over a fucking plant >HURR ITS JUST A PLANT BREH Good thing heroin and cocaine aren't plant products really, otherwise that argument would make you look really stupid...
>>16648127 they're processed plat products all weed is just the plant in a dried form that being said it really says something the only thing you could latch on to and tallk down about is the the "it's just a plant" phrase
>>16648127 A lot of shit is plant derived bruh Cocaine and heroin is heavily processed to become the drug it's sold to your crack whore mum as, you see That wasn't the point of my post though "ITS A PLANT THO" isn't my reasoning as to why I think it should be legalised
>>16648612 forgot the why. I support it because I support the use of reasonably safe psychoactive substances. I don't indulge because I don't like depressants much. best time I've had was low-dose LSD. no hallucinations, just energy and intensity for 12 goddamn hours on 1.5 tabs.
I don't think it's any more harmful than booze, maybe less so. But I don't use it because >it's still technically illegal here and I don't need the grief - I have one of those guilty faces that seems to tip off authority figures somehow >I am living off family support while waiting for disability to go thru and don't want to spend their money on drugs/booze >the comedowns are so hard on me for some reason, it's not even really worth using unless I can find a strain that lets me down easy
As an injun in the good ol' canadia, I live in a rural place and there is so much weed, and barely any cops. One day though some drunk fucker was doing donuts and speeding through the village so the cops were out. It was night so they spotted me and pulled me over. I got busted for weed. Bullshit fucking charges.
Only reason I support legalization. Other than that I dont give a fuck.
Yeah. Never had a want to smoke, plus I don't enjoy the idea of inhaling anything.
But my parents smoke, all their friends do, and so do 90% of my friends. If overused, it definitely hinders productivity. As a recreational activity though, it does no harm to anyone involved. The consequences of it are way too high for what is actually being done. Health benefits and such are also a plus. It's way better than cigarettes, just don't see a reason for it to be illegal.
Although I still don't like being around it or being around people who are on it excessively. But if a person is doing something on their own accord and not hurting themselves or anyone else with it i see no reason why it should be illegal.
>>16647953 I've smoked it before, I prefer to get drunk. When is the last time you've seen a marijuana related death, other than people fighting over it. It's nearly impossible to kill yourself with it. If legalized... >it can be regulated by the FDA >taxed to fund public services like schools >there will be less people in prison >an overall happier population >less money and power in the hands of criminals
never smoked it in my life, but I support it bring legalized. mostly because all the people bring out in jail over it is fucking stupid, plus the tax made off of it could be very helpful. and I imagine it would make things easier for those who use it medically too
