This probably should go into the Drug Thread, and probably will, but let's just have a short discussion.

Recently, Gordon Brown and Harriet Harman have decided to upgrade weed from a Class C drug to a Class B drug, even though experts have advised against it. They claim that prices are falling, weed is becoming stronger and we must protect the children and all that annoying nanny state rubbish.

Also, to stop the cases of metal illness associated with Mary Jane, while I do not dispute their occurrences, it is so very rare (1 in 5,000 with men and 1 in 20,000 with women) and you have to smoke a huge amount for that to happen.

Thoughts? I think this is an irritating load of bollocks, it will probably increase crime associated with the drug, no less people will stop smoking it and the rates of mental illness will not change.

The police have, however, said that they will continue their policy of confiscating it and giving informal warnings for simple possession, as they don't really agree with increased charges for light recreational use.

Yeah, pro-enough, I'm hardly a stoner though. I like my hypocritical drinking instead.

Full legalisation would make things SOOOOO much better, for reasons I can't be bothered typing in full.

didn't weed kill Bruce Lee?

It must be serious s*it.


That's the most retarded thing I've read all day, I hope you were joking.

Lee died from a hypersensitivity to the muscle relaxant in Equagesic, which is a common ingredient in painkillers.


EDIT: Learn to use proper internet sarcasm.

Technically....political thread...

The classification system is worthless anyway, full of inconsistancies and not based on evidence like it should be.

Obviously it was a joke.

I was pretty much saying:

Didn't Radiation kill John Wayne?
It must be serious s*it.

They change it so regularly that I thought it still was class B.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

Indeed, that would mean we'd get hash bars, no buying it off suspect looking guys on Tag by the Rozzers and no crime.

But wouldn't this come under the smoking ban laws? NOOOO!

Cabinet ask for advisory council to review drug laws
Council say laws need not be changed
Cabinet ignore council because they only want to hear their own voices.

Drugs can be abused and misused by people but that doesn't make them bad or evil.
