    Cannabis isn't particularly harmful from what I understand (at least certain strains aren't) If you legalise it then you can control what comes in, otherwise its an underground business giving you nothing in tax and uncontrollable

    Saying "HEY I'M 15 AND SMOKE POT!" doesn't make you cool. It just makes you look like yet another annoying teenager [​IMG]

    While this doesn't affect me (I'm American obviously), it's better to keep pot legal. It stays regulated and out of the hands of dirty dealers who can put God-knows-what into it. And if they keep it localized to certain locations, that helps stop accidents related to being high on the job or in the car.

    It's funny that this is so controversial in the UK. For me, as a Dutch person, this is not so strange.

    One thing they should do is make a clear law about what's allowed and what's not. I don't have a clear stance on the legalization of soft drugs (I can see the pros and cons), but the way they manage it here is ridiculous.

    They should legalise cannabis and we have already recently lost the cathinones group of drugs, if people want to get high *sensibly* I don't see the problem. It is people that go OTT that cause the problems but the same with alcohol but to a greater extent! MDMA should be legal everyone would be happy, cocaine and amphetamines should stay illegal though they are nasty drugs.
