Same goes with OTC products. One can overdose on aspirin before they can on pot.

Not anymore if they are allowed to grow their own.

maybe people wouldnt be so mystified about weed if they could just grow it and smoke it
Kids would definitely feel less cool doing something legal

It is a little hypocrite here,..we can buy it and they allowed to sell it in *coffeeshops* but it is forbiden to grow it ( to sell )

But it is a good thing to get it legal though, alcohol is muchmore dangerous.

What I meant was that if it were allowed to be grown at home, it would be easier to steal than if they did what I proposed, give the marijuana treatments at hospitals only.

my understanding based upon anecdotal conversations with many Dutch people is that the average age at which a Dutch person tries marijuana is much lower than his counterparts in other European countries, and the percentage of the population who smokes pot on a regular basis is lower.

i can't source that, but i remember hearing it enough that it seemed to be common knowledge in the Netherlands. and the rowdiest people i saw in Amsterdam weren't Dutch people, they were tourists on benders.

My sister spent a while over there and said pretty much the same thing. Pot was not a big issue with the locals.

i do think, though, that there are certain elements about the Netherlands that make it possible for generally harmless soft drugs to be legalized that would make it impossible for a large country like the US to do the same thing. at least at this point.

Just a reminder for people, states can really only set these laws kind of symbolically. Sure, that means that you can't get prosecuted by state and local authorities, but, technically speaking, it's still illegal at the federal level, and, as such, federal laws trump any state or local laws.
