1. Legalizing it wouldn't mean everyone started smoking it all of a sudden. I don't smoke it, if it were legal I would continue to chose not to. Same as some people chose to smoke cigarettes, some not. Some choose to drink, some not.
2. I think the main problem with it not being legal is that if a person who is a great member of society, works, pays taxes, pays for tax/insurance and everything in between, if that person decided that to unwind at the end of the day or on days off by choosing to smoke weed in their home instead of having a few socially acceptable beers than they could be sent to jail. I don't think that's right. We have genuine criminals in this country; real scumbags, murderers, rapists etc who deserve to be locked up for life yet can spend less time in jail than some young guy or girl who smoked a joint. Is that right?
See the weed smokers are not violent or dangerous people in general they are easy going. And I don't think it's right that someone who is 99.9% good and law abiding deserves to go to jail due to 0.1% of law breaking, buying some weed. I mean if its ok to smoke cigarettes and ok to drink toxic stuff like whiskey or vodka which can do liver damage, cause people to be violent etc what's the harm in letting the people who want to smoke weed do so? Have it so they can only do it at home, I don't think they'd care.
Alot of people who smoke don't go out drinking and stuff they'd rather relax at home.
I mean if you chose not to smoke it then why would it effect you? Same as smoking a cigarette, if you chose not to does that mean you worry about the fact loads of others do or could you care less?
Basically, I think it's a fear of the unknown. Educate.

There is no end to this kind of thread .It's all being said many times before there is no good argument for dope being freely available and a mere glance at the papers will tell you that on any day of the week. But vested interests are here on this thread i'm sure .
Take a walk down Talbot street in Dublin and see the young fellahs with death written on their faces .....your area could resemble talbot street if some people have their way .

Mikom,

As you correctly pointed out I have gone and got a 4 years degree on the subject.
I am considered a frontline professioanl working in the field.
Hence, some might say I have earned the right to an opinion.

My views are aligned with the vast majority of other professionals who like myself
witness the devastation daily and are faced with the task of assisting
victims in putting their lives back together.

So, frankly, coming on here and reading about ones legal right to a "high” seems more
than a little silly to me and ...

if you cannot understand where I am coming from thats fine )

*adopts paddyandy voice*

Young Fellahs and women . Top yerselves now . Life is sh1t and we are just waiting to die .


Based on the songs and the stories, heroes of reknown
Are the passing tales and glories that once was Dublin town.
The hallowed halls and houses, the haunting children's rhymes
Are part of what was Dublin In The Rare Old Times.
Ring-a-ring-rosie, as the light declines
I remember Dublin city in the rare old times.♫

In what way are we "Nihilists who are hopeless in their outlook on life".Many great successful people were and are regular smokers of weed.Thomas Jefferson and George Washington smoked a lot weed in fact most of the founding fathers of the U.S. smoked weed even the declaration of Independance was made from Hemp.We are not mindless addicts looking for our next fix like you may think.
