I guess legalizing it would mean you could go out and buy it like you could a carton of milk, or maybe more like you would buy a bottle of vodka, with certain age restrictions and such.

De-criminalizing it would mean that it would be a violation to possess it, but punishable by a small fine instead of jail time.

Canada is a relatively progressive country, and I'm thankful for that.

But realistically, the rest of the world isn't exactly racing to go and de-criminalize marijuana or even legalize it in cases of the terminally ill. In the US, so long as the "secular" government continues to take marching orders from the right wing conservatives, marijuana will remain an illegal drug.

Yeah this fine doesnt have to be small at all.

I think the bigger the better. Why not. Charge then 200$. I will guarentee that a 200$ fine will make a kid think more then going to a aversion program. I have been caught by a sop with weed. Wasnt mine but i was in the car. It was 2/3 of a gram. 0o0o0o. Well they were not going to charge me. They told me i had to write an essay. And make a poster. Thats all. Took me 20 minutes. 200$ wont take me 20 minutes to find. maybe 40 hrs of work.

De-criminalization is our only option. Courts dont scare people that are under 18. Why would it? Your record(at least in Canada) is erased at 18. You could have killed someone it will be gone at 18.

As we get older weed will become more and more accepted in society. It already is being accepted in Canada.

Perhaps "decriminalization" is a somewhat reasonable approach, but like rougerum, I believe the penalites should remain strict for teenagers at least. There is no reason it should be easier for them (or anyone) to get; it does not do any good for people who want to get high other than getting them high.

And bonoman you are the exception if it has not led you to other drugs. ALL of my friends who are pot smokers have pursued and often developed habits with other drugs. Unfortunately that's the truth.

What's the difference between decriminalizing and legalizing? Won't the effects be the same?

Not that I want to tell everyone this, but I've been smoking occasionally *cough* for the past 10 years. I have never wanted to stray to more dangerous drugs. I'm not stupid, it hasnt effected my ability to be normal like some people think it does. But I dont think it should be legalized. I think it would cause more problems.

I for one am happy. Out here in British Columbia, Marajuana is the number one industry. Billions of dollars a year. And we grow the best weed. B.C. weed is constantly winning awards in Amsterdam. We will be the most prosperous province in Canada. The whole legalization issue is just a means to de-centralize power from Ontario. The Liberals just haven't figured it out yet. They actually think it has medicinal value.

SG, realize how my comment didn't say everyone, but that it CAN lead to much more dangerous drugs and to people that smoke pot a lot, it usually does.

Hmmmm...

I wonder how many people here have "inhaled" at one point or another.

I have. Years ago. About 5 or 6 times over the span of 5 years or so.

I'm a "wild man", eh???

Thing is... most of those times I was totally drunk beforehand... so I never got the "true effects".

Anyway, that was another guy... a guy who was "lost in his 20s".

... now I'm a guy how is.. well, "trying to read the map", in his 30's.


So... Do YOU party, dude?????

I am not trying to take sides in this.

I think one arguement the people in favor of legalizing pot is because of where people get the pot. Since you cant get it legally, people resort to drug dealers to buy it. These drug dealers are the ones exposing the people who use pot to more harmful drugs like heroin. Thus, by legalizing it, you remove that contact, possibly lowering the use of seriously harmful drugs.

Another reason pot is used medicinally is because it stimulates appetite in people whose medication makes them naseous and unable to eat.

Keep in mind, this is not my opinion, I read it in Maclean's (a Canadian weekly news magazine).

I really like pot...to tell you the truth. I'm not pot head, but it can be a lot of fun to smoke a blunt on a Saturday afternoon once in a while and chill. Have you ever smoked pot Rougerum? If you haven't, how can you comment on it's effects? Drugs such as cocaine and heroin are life killers, and extremely addictive. There is nothing wrong with pot, like Sicilian Goddess said its a freaking plant for gods sake. Do you really think people should not have the right to have a beer? Thats insane. Iraq may be a good place for you if thats what you think, people there have no rights to do anything....

I have smoked pot before and the fact that it is natural doesn't mean it is good. How many other countless plants that are posionous happen to be natural as well. What I have against pot is the only purpose it serves is to get high which is basically get intoxicated and I don't believe people have a right to get intoxicated. Oh yeah you will make the excuse you are doing it in the privacy of your own home but that doesn't matter, when I see the figures of how intoxication is connected with child abuse and how the major problems in america now are how families aren't staying together and that is causing so many problems with the kids. Parents are being forced to work more and more leaving their kids alone or at a daycare center fighting for the attention of 3 adults who are watching around 30 kids. Pot has proven to have no legitimate medical purpose. Everyone in the scientific community says that. So I ask why do you want to add yet another drug into this society when we are falling so far behind with running society to a good level now. All pot would do is add on to the problem.

Nice retort, rougerum. I couldn't agree more. Of course, I always find it funny that:

1) they always ask if you've tried it

but,

2) if you say that you still don't like it, they think you either:

--> a) must not have have done enough, or
--> b) you're defective

How curious indeed. I hate all that shit. Period.

I can blow smoke rings with cigarette smoke. My thumbs bend backwards and I can put my legs behind my head. I can tie a cherry stem in a knot using nothing but my tongue.
