More sensible drug talk like this please! very impressive stuff from the BBC as well. Nice one.

"I'm talking about harm minimisation," he told BBC News.

"At the moment there is an awful lot of harm caused by what we have at the moment, with children going to a drug dealer or they try and grow it themselves and then they get into trouble with the law."

they've all been talking shit for years. always someone twittering on about it. my opinion is....it'd be cheaper, but not as strong. at least they could stop the super strains that float about as thats what most of the psychosis boils down to. keep control of something that they currently have no control over.... but would it push more kids towards smoking it, because lets face it, we all argue the 'no harm with a spliff' side but i bet you'd rather your kids never bothered with the stuff.

Never gonna happen, look at the trend...

Smoking banned in public places, price of cigarettes & alcohol sky high, drive for cuts in NHS spending etc etc.

The hypocrasy in doing it would be so horrendous its unreal...

Obviously they're only seeing $$$$!

I actually hope they don't, simply because if it is allowed, they're taking the piss out of us even more than they currently are!

They don't even need to legalise it really. All they need to do is decriminalize possession. So if you get caught they can confiscate it from you, but that's all. It would save some much police time!

To be fair, has the fact that something is illigal ever made you think twice about taking it? I don't actually think making it legal would increase use that much. I would say most people decide if they want to use it or not regardless of it's current legal status.

If they license and tax all forms of "drugs" and chemical substances, then they can set the price sky high so you can only get fucked if you really want to.

The problem with the making it legal, is that it'll come back on them when more people abuse it and develop these mental issues.

That's what causes them, abuse.

If they made it legal, it would then be their fault people were abusing it.

Why should drugs be made legal? it won't stop crime. It'll stop dealing. But people will still steal and rob to get weed. People will still mug people for crack. Women will still sell their bodies for heroin.

Eventually, when we have all these addicts who can't work because of their addiction, there will be more crime because they could openly get hooked in the first place. To try and stop that, they'll be given money to fund their habit, which comes straight out of other people's pocket. Or rehab will be run from tax payers cash.

Weed being legal won't cause less harm. People will soon be pissed off at smoking shit government stamped shit grade and think "fuck it, I'll try something else."

Answer me this. Would you have tried harder drugs if you hadn't have done weed before? I probably wouldn't have. So If everyone thinks it's ok to smoke weed, wouldn't it mean more people would think they should try harder drugs?

It's not only long term health. You also have to factor drug driving too. People will be stoned and drive. It's something else on top of drink driving for the police to tackle.
