Here you get fined $50 for personal use amounts, and you can have 3 plants if they are under a certain height and not grown hydro. What kind of a message does that send. It's totally stupid.
Australia rules.

Should the law prohibit/allow drugs of anykind? Alcohol and Tobacco should fall under the same category as Marajuana, Cocaine, Amphetamines, Meth, LSD, etc. They are all drugs that, if used excessively, can severely damage a person's health and shorten their life. Government ought make the REAL decision - "Is it the responsibility of the government to enforce the prohibition of activities where an individual is likely to severely jeprodize their own health and life? Is it their obligation to save us from ourselves?" If the answer to that question is "Yes", then it follows that Tobacco and Alcohol should be legally banned as well. If the answer is "No", then all drugs that are currently illegal should be legalized.
Dont forget about Advil, IBProphen, Tylenol, Caffine, Chocolate, etc.

A drug is anything that has an effect on the natural order of how your brain functions. If I'm wrong, then ill need to get my money back from my Sociology teacher

Like it or not, Tobacco and Alcohol are drugs just like any painkiller. If they are legal so should marajuana and all that other crap; they just need to be controlled like everything else -- people are acting like if we legalize this stuff there would be NO restrictions AT ALL

The issue here is not about usage affects, its about legalization. If a pilot wanted to toke up before a flight they would have done it, just like they would drink if they wanted.. It may be illegal but its not impossible to get; Hell, im not of drinking age yet and behind me is a case of Vodka (yumm)

Double standards...if drugs are legal, regardless of how they effect you, then drugs should be legal (remember: advil/painkillers, caffine, chocolate, etc. are drugs too...just like tobacco)

I agree that some drugs should not be legal, but then again it will most likely kill off the population that uses them so its not all bad; Hell, if all drugs are legal they would have less market value and drug dealers would be out of business if you can go to save-mart and grab an 1/8th of Opium..

My take on it is this
If (hypothetically) there were to be a law protecting the rights of those that use M.J (not Michael Jackson ) then there would be less people using it.
take for example, the rate of people who not only sold, but produced their own alchol during prohibition. Because of the fact that it was prohibited, then people wanted to do it. If the govt hadn't put a prohibition on it, then there wouldn't have been any reason for them to make it right?
There is allot of truth to the above statement. My fiancee and I have been arguing for some time about whether we should support people who choose to smoke up or to condem them for their actions. My mother was one of the few Canadians to have a license to smoke pot (she had bone cancer but has fully recovered, thanks in part to today's medicine) and had she not had the medicinal pot, I don't think she would be alive today.
That just goes to show you that you have to take into consideration for those people who do not have a choice whether or not they choose to smoke up.

If you made it Legal, people would have to do another drug to be 'bad' and then our Children will be debating weather or not we should legalise Cocaine...... So we shouldent legalise it.

The fact that some posts speak of over imbibing in alcohol tells me that the same would be true for drugs. The kick that most drug users get out of their drug of choice usually dulls over time and they spice it up a little until they're hooked on "H" or cocaine. Then they become a drag on society and raise our insurance rates. Regardless of how a person abuses theirself, we pay for their care with tax money.

Don't try to get a job in the defense industry if you are a user or have used and your position calls for a secret or above clearance. Even machine shops are screening and I think the reason for that is obvious.

My opinion: Legalize it

When someting is legal it's not all that interesting to buy or do drugs. And no it aint exactly legal in the Netherlands, it's allowed, thats all
