    I vote we have a trial first tho - decriminalise it in my street first - just to see how it pans out

    that'd be great if it happened. think of the boost to the economy if we were growing and selling that quantity of weed! Goodbye recession hello loads of stoned tourists.

    oh get fucked 1st of jan who caaaaaaares unless they outlaw crack and smack i have no reason to care. at all, ever. i met a girl what said she studied DMT haha. turns out it means dance movement therapy. and its a complete and utter sham its no more psychology than scientology. i think smoking DMT is more therapeutic really. whats this thread about? some panicy stockpiling thread. cos i should probably get me a couple of grams to be sure. half a key and let it marinate. i dont even smoke why would i do that. im unpredictable is all. shit. im drunk on baileys.

    This is the guy that needs to be convinced if it's gonna happen and he's a member of the Green Party so he's probably got mates that toke. T'would be cool if it happened. And we all know Brighton's cool.

    Actually just realised the police would need to be involved as well but at least it's a start...
