Marijuana being grown legally

I had to laugh when one of the TV stations showed a legal, high security marijuana growing factory in a ‘secret’ location, then names the town, the Weekly TV show on the ABC highlighted it with Charlie closing the show saying he was going to fly there. I did Psychology as another subject in JCU and Psychology 101 textbook states that the human brain has receptors for THC which had to happen through human evolution, Archeologists have unearthed containers that are 3,000 years old and some of them contained oil that was very high in THC, they theorize that it may have been used for cooking and in some cases rubbed on the skin. So having religion forced on me as kid the atheist in me thought, when Jesus was born everything beforehand was BC now AC the Old Testament / New Testament but the Bible fails to mention anything about him say as a kid, did he ever play “You show me yours and I’ll show you mine”?? have a quick smoke behind the shed during recess? Sneak off with a bottle of his father’s wine to drink with his mates?? Ride donkey unlicensed and / or over point 05?? The disciples mention having oil rubbed on their skin, don’t think it was olive oil, is there a possibility they were stoned? I think we should have a referendum to legalize marijuana for personal use, it would stop people who rent houses that are used for growing hydroponic marijuana, free up police, courts, prisons and the government could make heaps in tax. Jamaicans use it religiously, many other countries have it legal for recreational use including many US states (since the war on drugs failed) and they are all reaping the benefits. Just a thought, write to your local MP if you agree.

Some State and Territories actually you can grow marijuana, but is it really legal? Not it isn't as it only has been decriminalized, that means if you are caught you only get a small fine, and no criminal conviction recorded.
Some States and Territories are now moving on and about to do the same with other illegal substances, under a certain amount it is not a criminal offense.
Australia has also lost the war on illegal substances years ago, and it is time that the Australian Government takes some more action, by decriminalizing many of these substances, we should have official laborites making these drugs and substances, so the quality and safety is controlled, and so is the price. This to me is a much safer option that what we have right now, and a few king pings are the ones importing the drugs and move it onto other drug dealers and on and on to other drug dealers, who all break the drugs down with other substances that are more dangerous than the actual drugs themselves.
By doing this does not mean that you will have a run on people wanting to use drugs, it may actually stop many, who love doing tings that are illegal, it will get rid of the king pings as the product that was once worth millions would be lucky the even be worth $25

Marijuana being used for medical purposes is somewhat different to it being used for recreational purposes for one thing if it is being prescribed any side effects would be monitored by the prescribing doctor.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse says marijuana can be addictive and is considered a “gateway drug” to using other drugs. "The higher the level of THC and the more often you use, the more likely you are to become dependent," Bonn-Miller says. "You have difficulty stopping if you need to stop. You have cravings during periods when you're not using. And you need more and more of it to have the same effect." Marcel Bonn-Miller, PhD, a substance abuse specialist at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.
Of course smoking it also has undesirable effects similar to those from smoking cigarettes - irritated lungs and reduced lung capacity and harmful effects on the lungs.
It can also effect judgement and co ordination which is obviously a problem for driving and using machinery = likewise there are warnings on some S4 and S8 drugs pointing this out there is a hazard when taking these medications and driving or using machinery.
Simply saying just legalise it - there is much more involved when this is done - taking into consideration the above, not to mention that if is sold outside of pharmacies supplying it by prescription - many people would obtain this drug by illegal means - not knowing what the product actually is or the correct dosage.
It is a good drug of choice for certain medical conditions and can be helpful but I think just legalising it for recreational purposes is not such a good thing - where are the benefits of this? I have personal experience of people using this and never growing up and worse still they are living in a fantasy world where nothing is their fault, and they are not able to see their lives unravelling -some in their 50's and 60's still smoking it and whose lives have been ruined by smoking this substance. Some of them have even said they do not want to stop smoking it as they don't want to face reality - the mess in their lives - they are unable to deal with and prefer to stay stoned, not thinking about it.
I have to disagree about legalising it - it is not just some harmless weed. It is indeed a very powerful substance capable of altering a persons perception and reality.

Well how did coke a cola get its name? Maybe from an ingredient that was originally in it Coke. I have always been for the legalization of drugs, as it would make many much safer, and cut most of the criminal element out of it. Reply
