So Im not a pothead, or an alcoholic, Im not totally against them, I just dont do them, but i do have alcoholic and pothead friends.

And I was wondering which should be illegal, weed or alcohol, seriously, think about it.


With alcohol, you have only a little bit of awareness of your actions, and usually if your drinking your with friends, or a party, which increases the chances of you doing something stupid and full of regret.

With weed, you have much more awareness of what your doing, and your with close friends that your willing to share a blunt/joint with, and if your doing weed, it calms you down, so you would not be at a party doing stupid things, you would be sitting down, listening to music, smoking.

I think weed should be legalized and alcohol banned.

Your thoughts?

Alcohol is probably in more cases more dangerous at the time of consumption

Weed leads to long term problems

The American public couldn't handle the legalization of weed. There's not enough of a social stigma on it to keep everyone from becoming a lazy pothead.

Weed should be decriminalized, its a hell of a lot less dangerous than alcohol. My mom even supports the decriminalization of weed cause all you want to do when you are stoned is sit around and eat lol.

if weed is legalized then it will be used in large groups of people. you only have it with a few people now because you don't want to get caught.

edit: by having marijuana illegal the government is discriminating against rastafarians

They should both be legalised, or atleast decriminalised. Why should the government tell us what we can and can't put into our own bodies.
#15
yeah both should be legal.
also you call everyone that uses a pothead or alcoholic, there is such a thing as moderation, which is kinda the key to using drugs/alcohol

legalize weed, make the legal smoking age for weed 16, and cigarettes stay 18 (this way more people will smoke weed then cigarettes, plus at 16 the side-effects should screw you up too bad

keep the alcohol law at this: drinks with a proof level of 1 or less may be consumed by anyone over the age of 10, proof level of 3 at 14, 5 at 16, 10 at 18 and then at 20 you can drink whatever the hell you want. this way there wont be so much binge drinking by teens with TOO potent stuff. and its at the parents discretion how much of the beverage legal for their child the child may have, if any at all

Problems:

1) Weed gives everyone munchies. Everyone gets munchies = everyone eats. Everyone eats all the time = obese society. Obese society = Not good.

2) Weed, believe it or not, is un-healthy.

3) America is too immature to have legalized weed. They would all become potheads.

4) It's more fun when it's illegal.

1) Alcohol being banned would only make criminals of people that are presently good citizens who enjoy a beer here and there.

2) They tried prohibition in the early 1900s. Didn't work at all.

3) This is a guitar forum. Not the legislature...

Alcohol is much more harmful than weed, and I don't think there's anyone seriously advocating banning booze around here.

i think you should make weed illegal and keep alcohol.. now i'm against alcohol, but we cant ban it... or, well.. you know what happened last time we tried that..

Exactly. Alcohol is worse than weed, but banning it will just cause problems. As would legalizing weed.

I know some states where weed is legal but you can only have like, a gram on you or else youre considered a dealer and can get in MAJOR ****. If there were laws that made bud legal, but very strict thats the only way it could work.

Alcohol will never be illegal.

Hey dude, beer in the US has anywhere from 3% to 5% alcohol on average. Letting a bunch of 10 year olds drink that would mean after 6 beers they'd be trashed. In due time, their tolerance would build and their binge drinking abilities would be ASTRONOMICAL!
#30
Your totally right, but banning alcohol wouldn't be good. Everyone who drinks now would start either drinking illegally (prohibition never worked did it) or swap straight over to weed, when you should do both in moderation.

Plus, think of all the moderate alcohol drinkers. Middle class middle aged people sat at a dinner party substituting a glass of wine with a joint. A small amount of beer or wine fairly often is actually good for you, whereas weed is only good in terms of treating arthritis etc.

But it would be good if there was a choice. People who get more and more drunk and get violent wouldn't have cause the same problems for society if they got high. Obviously it would still be illegal to drive stoned, or to go to work stoned. If the law treated weed the same as alcohol, we'd be much better off, and much more mellowed out. It would take a lot of money from organized crime, and might giver the farmers something to do.

It would sort out the pissheads ruining the town centers at weekends problem too. Compare:

Stumbling out of night clubs at 3 AM, smashing a bottle and starting a fight. Throwing up, lying in the curb. The police have to come to sort it out. Stumbling into the takeaway, buying donna meat (which is bad for you, disgusting and prepared incredibly unsanitarily.) Then getting a taxi, throwing up in it, then going home to beat your wife.

with

People wandering out of weed bars at 11 (because they want to get to bed, they're nackered!) and having conversations about how interesting coats are, stumbling into the icecream shop before getting the last bus home and falling asleep watching TV.

1)Not everyone has to eat junk food while high, or they could just eat healthy before they smoke so they aren't hungry when they're high.

2)True, same with alcohol.

3)I don't think it'd be too much different.

4) Can't disagree with that

Weed isn't legal here in canada but cops are so lenient on it it might as well be. Also most cops here probably smoke it themselves.

Weed is only legal in Canada for medical purposes, you need a prescription in order to get some.

Health care is free, which is good, but taxes are high.
Weed is not legal

But if weed were legalized, then the War on Drugs wouldn't be able to subsist and many people would lose jobs. **** creating new jobs if weed is legalized, I'd grow my own, no need for farmers and then companies tampering with weed like they do with tobacco.
