Please share the "problems with weed".
To get it, to treat quite marked pain from restless leg syndrome partial MS and a spinal injury. I have got to go threw shady types. You need to meet alot of therm, to find one, who supplies you with a good product, at a reasonable price and does not put s**t on you. Not only do you have to put up with questionable styles of social behaviors amongst these types, there is some serious Jerry Springer highlights going on amongst them.You have to deal with knowledge the police have there eye on them. When they associate you, with them. They start harassing you. They refuse to accept the judgement , they have made of you, is wrong, so they snowball it.

Some of the female pigs can see sincerity, but the males mostly, especially the whinging pommy ones, are nasty racist pieces of work. I'd feel safer dropping the soap in the shower with bevan spencer von einmen, than to answer a few questions from them.

It's weed in Melbourne. As long as you're white and carrying under a pound or so, cops aren't going to do s**t.

Get over yourself precious. 'twas a tag Graham Kennedy used to give himself. Partial MS, are you referring to drug induced symptoms of MS?

Decriminalised, yes. Legalised, I'm less sold on.

Decriminalisation without outright legalisation seems to do the job pretty well in most places (e.g. the Netherlands). I'm happy to go with that.
dope should be something done discretely and at home. so legalised no.

but a fine for possession of small quantities is more appropriate than a criminal offense.

Legalise growing of up to 5 plants for personal use, state government owned business to be sole mass producer and wholesaler, money raised to be spent on health system.
The savings alone on policing would be significant. The state getting a portion of income from sales would be genius. Just have a 'weed area' in the city or in particular burbs with non-alcohol serving cafe's etc. where smoker's can go and light up and socialise away from idiot drunks :)

Sounds very reasonable :thumbsu:

Why should it be discreet? That's not really fair to have people ostracised from society for doing something harmless.

As for the fine, it's a funny one. I'm not comfortable with leaving it up to police discretion, which is what happens at the moment. I might get busted as a white collar worker, and be holding a pound of weed and get off with a warning, then a Somali immigrant in Dandenong can be having a spliff and get a really hard time over it or arrested.

It is more or less the least harmless illicit substance (and almost certainly harmless if vaped or baked) but the legal situation around it can be used to really fu** someone's life up pretty badly.

because consuming alcohol, dope or cigarettes are adult activities and should be done maturely

Yeah at licensed regulated premises so that we're not pushing people to the fringes.

Imagine being able to give young people an opportunity to enjoy nightlife without having to worry about dealing with drunks. The drunks still have their freedom, but the stoners finally get theirs too.
