In the US, there are State drug laws as well as Federal Laws. Sometimes, as in the case of California - where medical marijuana is legal - you have interesting conflicts, such as :

In January 2003 Ed Rosenthal, a medical marijuana advocate who grows the drug for use by the sick, was brought to trial in district court and found guilty on federal drug charges. Rosenthal's attorneys maintained that Rosenthal was legally growing the drug as "an officer of the city" under Oakland's local medical marijuana law. The judge ruled that this defense was not valid under federal law and did not allow the defense to be presented at trial. After the verdict, five jurors came forward and claimed that, had they known that Rosenthal had official sanction to provide marijuana under Oakland's medical marijuana law, they would not have found him guilty. They issued a public apology to Rosenthal and demanded that the judge grant him a new trial.

About marijuana :
That would be a little more honest, considering they could not prevent the market. They failed in forbidening consumption. De facto one part the people is consumming it, and it looks (at least to me) hopeless to forbid that.

Would it not be a little more efficient to control the production and the consumption by taxing it, and maybe easier to know who takes what amount, and who needs help.... ? Alcohol is legual, and is very dangerous too. Alcohol is the other extreme : let it sold, just restrict to people old enough to be responsible if they destroy their life. They should find a balance, by trying to tell people "You can use those toxic product if you want, sometimes, and we have to control this because it is really dangerous for you" and thus for instance sell it the way some restricted medicines are sold. Both for alcohol and marijuana.

Eventually, I believe, marijuana will be legalized and regulated. In my opinion, it's just a matter of time.

Recently, a law was passed in Norway that almost criminalized the enjoyment of nicotine..:yuck:
 
here in Canada, weed is decriminalized, or is it, i know it was in the process, but thats it, everything else is illegal

Since it's loaded, I may as well shoot : Yes, I do.

It's easy to jump to conclusions on the basis of this response, but I'm not going to go into a lengthy explanation of my reasoning. Perhaps a new thread titled "should marijuana be legalized ?" will elicit discussion.


So arildno, it's okay if you don't "enjoy" the nicotine ?? :confused:

Hoooah ! Um, by the way, that kind of law has been passed in New York, California and a few other states, if I'm not mistaken.

I think there are places where it is reasonable to have such a regulation, and places where it's not.

Do you complain that smoking in not allowed in movie theaters ?

I think you have a point about nicotine on one side, that just like prefume can be worn in public, and can be smelled -- for better or worse -- nicotine should be able to as well.. right?

BUT what about the fact that its PROVEN that second hand smoke is as dangerous if not WORSE than smoking a cig.

Kill yourself, but don't kill others. :(

smoking cigarettes in public places is illegal in my state too...you say "kill yourself, but don't kill others", well, that is why we have DUI laws...don't let your choices affect others, i completely agree.

Wow! I guess doing drugs is really bad for your health there! Are those quantities considered possession or is the penalty so high because they are considered to be dealers to have that quantity?

Also just wondering...does it actually prevent people from doing drugs there? Or does it just make them more careful to not get caught?

Yes, of course... a person's life is certainly not worth more than fifteen grams of substances that most people use to simply to overcome unfortunate, crippling congenital reward-deficit disorders. Saint, you almost list those execution statistics like you're proud of them.

I've been to Narvik and Trondheim, but got by without so much as a single drag.

Umm... the Narvik visit was when I was about 2 years old. And when I said I've been to Trondheim, I meant "virtually" - it was a first person WWII computer game...but it felt cold, brrrrrrrr.

in my county, farmers are allowed to kill pigs-like animales. pig industry is not very develop much. i heard most people in malaysia don't love pork, so i guess there are not many pigs in malaysia. i say about port because pork is good protein sources, esp from generation III, and IV and so on. from pigs livers, i don't know but i think people can also take out something to make a drug. it is legal anyway.

In the Netherlands, where I am from (I live momentarilly in Canada for two years) marihuana use is allowed, there are so-called coffee-shops where it is sold. There does not seem to be any problem and certainly the coffee-shops are much more friendly/peacefully that the caffee's, bars and disco's etc. where acohol is the primary intoxicating substance that is used.

There is, as probably many know, a very strange objection against cannabis products (see for example http://www.jackherer.com/index.html [Broken]), that has nothing to do with the health effects of marihuana but much with politics (and money).

I am personaly against any prohibtion of such substances and I think it would be best if people where just given information and left the choise to eat, drink, smoke, etc. whatever they want.
