oooooooooh..... where to start!
how many people you know get into a fight after having a smoke? consider this in comparison to the amount of alcohol related violence... cannabis
paasifies the user and therefore will not cause violent actions from the user ... it is commonly refered to as a 'downer' as it is a relaxant...
there has been reference mad to extreme use causing mental instability and in some cases what is known as 'cannabis psychosis'.
I have been a user for about 8 years now and have never experienced anything myself but who knows, the chemicals that effect you in cannabis (THC) may
have different effects on different people.. (remember nthat not all people have allergic reactions to the same thing.....)
ethical issues.... welll because cannabis is contraband, if it were legalised then there are chances of other contraband drugs such as heroin or
cocain being made legal on the same pretence and this is not in essence a problem (if a person wants to be a heroin user, law will not be an issue to
them...) however, people are not as detered by it's affects because the system allows the use in this case and therefore it is considered to be
acceptable.. in the same way as cigerettes are which in turn can influence whether the individual will be suseptable to cancer and emphasima..
Cannabis is produced in many ways... either by growing it naturally or by a method using hydroponics where by the method of growing and the strength
of the cannabis can be changed over a matter of adapting the crop with each harvest...
if legalised, it could potentially provide users witha cost effective drug, which will eliminate the need for dealers, therefore crime will be cut as
it is affordable, any other drugs will be produced under government regulation therefore making them safer and also providing a revenue to to
government through taxes earned through the current contraband... to be honest it is just a matter of time...
I don't in any way condone cannabis use as it does make you not care about stuff that goes on around which suits me personally and also makes me able
to become more cre8tive, show more empathy and think on a different platform to that which I normally do.. however, not caring can be detrimental in
the wrong situation... use is the same as with other such as alcoc=hol... be sensilbe and respect it and you will have no issue with it...
BIG UP YO STATUS!
(good luck woth the school report)
