Canadian Doctors on side of decriminilization

    A coupe of things:

    Tom Arnold? ;)

    And either I didn't know California had decriminalized, or my weed-addled memory forgot it - good for them!

    Its a start, though its still being treated as a dangerous addictive substance who's use should "not be normalized", while one can still walk into any liquor store and purchase a "Texas Mickey" of Canadian Club whiskey, which is enough to either get 10 people shitfaced, 5 people killed or 3 horses comatosed...........

    Good article. I fully support the decriminalization of PCP. :)

    It's sort of quasi-legal to smoke for medicinal use only, but lately the DEA and Federal government have been cracking down on some compassion centres claiming that Federal law overides any state laws on drugs.

    Since when was marijuana considered addictive?

    Actually, its quite addictive. I don't have any scientific info for you, but I know many people who have smoked hardcore for years, some even for decades, and they get cranky when there's no buds. One guy gets headaches, stomach aches and panic attacks. This could be psychosomatic, of course, but if I haven't been high in a week or two I find I tend to get a little anxious.......just a little, mind you!

    It's called chronicing!:D

    However, the addiction is a mild one, at least for most people, nothing like tobacco or coke or anything, and I imagine its mostly mentally + psychologically addictive than physical...........you crave to be high, not the substance itself.

    marijuana is not physically addictive like tobacco, caffeine, heroin, etc etc. it is psychologically addictive, like television, music and masturbation.

    Everything I've ever read states that it is psychologically addictive, not phyically..

    Therefore the symptoms will pass much quicker then with cigarettes, which I believe will haunt you for the rest of your life..

    marijuana users will have multiple semen stains on their pants from constantly jacking off.

    and sweeeeeeet. i'm all for the occasional *puff puff pass* and haven't been able to understand why it's a "drug" that's criminalized. obviously the physical damage is minimal, (even the united states government has test results proving that,) and pot smokers are usually harmless.

    when you're blazed it's often an effort to go from the couch to the fridge to get munchies. it's not like stoners are a real danger to society.

    Ah, those lovely Brits!

    Trust the cultured Brits to reach the right conclusions before us over-the pond hicks! Course, Amsterdam is their playground, just a short hop away - the Scientists in question have probably been hitting up the smoke shops since they were 17!;)

    Nice - actually that one's a little more informative !

    Its good to see scientists ignoring past stigmas and seeing cannabis for what it really is. I enjoyed the statement that its less harmful than the legal substances, tobacco and booze - havent seen a whole lot of publication of that very true fact.
