Surely a centralised goverment banning a plant is about as bad as that goverment giving out for free?
Well if it has the 'right' to ban guns then it has the 'right' to ban plants.
Which way is it ?

well I'm all pro- this... its natural right? It just grows. Nature provided it right? Grow it... smoke it, take care of it, sleep with it, speak with it, pet it, name it, call it names, watch tv with it, eat it, wear it, whatever... if nature provided it to you, just make the best of it.
So yea, it turns out if you burn it it gives you some effects... hey... but fire is natural and the plant is natural so...
I'm just not a fan of those effects but by all means, enjoy what nature gives you man! I'm sure theres something out there for me
EDIT: oh yea... there is... is called alcohol. Its has some processing to it, but hey... we've been enjoying those effects for quite some ... thousand years now... lol

I was being an ass, I don't think GMO should be banned but properly labelled, so those that wish to avoid it can do so. Pot should be 100% legal, able to grow it yourself and evreything, but information should be available. Not the crap they came up with during the antipot propaganda era, but real information, rooted in real science. Then allow people to make their own choices, like we do in most cases, alcohol, tobacco, sugar, coffee etc etc.

Nick Clegg and the lib dems want a review.
A review, woop-de-doo. With flip-flop policies like that I'm sure it'll be legal in no time

Cannabis is a teratogenic substance.
Define Teratogen at Dictionary.com. teratogen. teratogen. a drug or other substance capable of interfering with the development of a fetus, causing birth defects.
We may not see the results now.
But we will be paying the price for this soon.
But party on. The bill won't be in the mail until your child is born deformed.

Hate to play devils advocate, as I am all for legalization, but what about Kids that find their parents edibles and end up in the hospital?
I know, there's only been 9 kids admitted for too much THC, and while the effects aren't really life threatening, they shouldn't be eating their parents meds, the parents shouldn't leave their meds laying around, and they stuff probably shouldn't be made to look so appealing to kids.
Same goes for any Rx med, firearms, chemicals, power tools. The question is, is it now the responsibility of the state to try to keep edibles out of kids hands, or do parents need to be educated and we just have to hope that not too many kids eat their parents weed, just like we hope not too many kids find their parents oxy's or booze or pistols and harm themselves.

Let's do this thing!
This is great news. The effect is about the same as if they'd legalize gay marriage. More revenue, more freedom. No ill effects.
