Please I call those studies BS. I would bet it has more to do with each persons reaction to weed. Weed is very much like alcohol in that some abuse it but most just use it in moderation. I've used it in moderation for 45 years and have even stopped for years more than once. I don't have an addictive personality and have had friends and family who have abused weed. One of the reasons I've not always been a fan of legalizing it. However, I've changed my mind years ago because its silly to arrest and jail people for something that shouldn't be illegal especially when you look at the prescription drug problem.

No, I haven't.

I can't remember where I heard it or from whom but when I lived in Brighton, friends of friends knew (or at least had met) Norman and Zoe and 'the tea' at the time was that he had the uncontrollable shakes, the implication being that his hammering the pills had caused some sort of early onset Parkinsons type thing. I also vaguely remember seeing him somewhere and seeing for myself - he seemed very frail for a youngish man.

At least marijuana gets you high. Nicotine does nothing except alleviate the craving for nicotine! Fucking rubbish. :x

Only a fucking moron would get addicted to that

Same here. I've never done them (and that includes drinking)... though I'm also not ruling out the possibility that I might someday.

In any event, I'm all for the decriminalization of pot. Let's face it, anyone who wants it can (and will) get it easily enough whether it's legal or not. Decriminalization just means it can be regulated, taxed, etc. And it'll make the prisons a bit less crowded.

The main fear here is if most youngsters start on cannabis, even those who wouldn't normally touch a cigarette. As it does affect short term memory and impairs learning, especially in the young, who will be our future breadwinners? The main fear is that the economy would collapse. But just exactly how does it look in Canada and those American states who have legalized so far? Boost or bane?

Like I say, the ones who want it will get it regardless - just like with booze, or for that matter harder drugs. I don't think there's much that can be done about that.

It can remain illegal for kids. The argument presumes that whether it is legal or not makes a difference.

Something that has bugged me for years is how two countries which are ever-present in the news are never ever mentioned to be the world's best hashish makers, Afghanistan and Lebanon.

How hashish is made. Without checking I had heard that a person runs naked through a mature field of cannabis and gets the sticky stuff all over them, then he gets scraped and the scrapings are hash. Am I right?

Good question Googs. I'm only able to answer from a very local area of Montreal if I'm going to tell you what I have seen so far. In fact, hardly anything different that before (the kids who want to smoke will, whatever) but generally, very well behaved. Sure, there are a few in the herd that will say "to hell, it's legal now, I'll just smoke right here on this busy sidewalk, regardless who passes by - kids, grannies....". But in general, other than the major uptick right the beginning which has abated, it's all the same as before.

What's happening in other parts of Canada, the US, wherever, I have no way of knowing.

Still illegal in NY but easy to get both ways in neighbor state. Don't see or hear of a rush or kids using weed but have no idea of college life. Still is 21 not that this ever stopped anyone.

In some areas in Asia this was one traditional method, but not in North Africa and Lebanon, where it's made by pressing the dried plant, which is why it comes in slabs from those areas.

Must potheads always look like potheads? My son informs me that most of the pot busts here are of characters who look like potheads.
