A good advert for the legalization of cannabis, I wonder if it happened in USA, would it be likely for britan to follow suit??

If someone could embed the video I would appreciate it

That's a great ad! Loved it. And so true!

Think of all the money saved prosecuting and imprisoning people for this prohibition... And the money that could be made with its manufacture and taxing.

I don't think that vid can be embedded. Only Google and YouTube can.

Yes england would follow suit, interesting thing about international drug laws is when they introduced them they hid them in in the same treaty which says if you get attacked everyone else will help out -the reason that no one is willing or able to set their own drug laws for their nation is that if they did and then got attacked no one would have to help them - hence why they are only 'decriminalized' in holland, it is still illigal and it's still highly illigal to be involved in any form of transport to keep to the terms of he contract.

If the USA which has been the ones pushing prohibition so hard all these years was to change it's tune then weed would be legal all over europe wihin a few years. Hopefully the same will happen if america collapses and stops being a world power.

I firmly believe that prohibition is pushing up the crime rate. causing a large section of the population to become disenfranchised with the state and to hate the police - if people were free to toke an awful lot of the problems in the world would ease very quickly, and that's before you get into the economic effects of both legal cannabis and legal hemp!

No one even knows why it's banned anymore, everyone knows that stoners aren't violent or dangerous and infact are often very productive, useful members of society - the only reason for not smoking it they could give us at school was 'you'll get in trouble with the law and not be able to get the job you want' hehe that same day we studied the quote "it is the duty of a moral man to disobey an immoral law" -think they were trying to tell us something?

oh and i DID get the job i want thanks

I'm not a habitual user but I have to advocate and support.
People need to be able to exercise their freedom, even with drugs considered extremely harmful in small overdose (obviously not including cannabis.)

More money, less fighting, less weapons involed all over.. the benefits would be too grand to sit here and list.

i no longer due drugs or even drink for that matter

however,,, more now than ever i see the conspiracy of it all

and especially in dealing with cancer in my family

the medical aspects seem numerous and the needed research is there to justify it's use and healing potential

let's not even start on the many uses of hemp as well,,,,just 30,000 different potential products

and a better use for fuel than corn ethanol

and let's not even look at crime rates in other "pot legal" contries

huh,, i lost a bet with myself,,, i figured this would be 404ed when i opened it

good job ats,,,,keep it up!!!

I would love to see Obama legalize it, and then for the jobs and money saved prosecuting "criminals" to go on to save the economy. I think it would be hailed as one of the cleverest and bravest things done in a long time.

I dont know guys, today I watched a show on CNBC called Marijuana INC about how this placecalled Potter Grove in California was a place where residents grow herb and sell it. The DEA said that they couldnt do anything aboutit since they werent breaking any laws. Then I came online and saw this post....It Might Happen.(crosses fingers).

B.T>W. if you havent seen Marijuana INC...I suggest you watchit, you can find it on the internet(if not just wait for the next time it comes on T.V)
must watch if you are really interested in this.

I would love to see this happen, but what if it goes the same way as tobacco?

Anyone growing their own receive massive penalties, while the Government supplied product is deliberately laced with toxic chemicals?

Another fear that someone on here brought up a while ago is genetically modified pollen getting to normal crops across the continent.

But aside from that, or the possibility that this could be used for a trick/trap or some sort of false flag to be blamed on crazed reefer heads, I can only see this as a positive notion.

Well I watched a programme last night on this and it makes SO much sense to legalize it.

You can put age restrictions on it like cigarettes as tests have shown that if you smoke it either pre teen or just going into your teens then it has serious effects on learning. Start smoking it towards the end of your teens then no (or little) effect.


Also if they start selling it in controlled conditions then you can make sure the anti psychosis part of the plant is not "grown out" so that the amount of thc is increased to make the effect stronger. If this is done then you won't get all of these psychological problems for long term smokers.

The only bad point that will be left is the addictiveness.

Just makes so much sense to me to legalize it and control the problems it currently causes.

EDIT to add that I didn't even go into the financial benefits it would bring to each countries economies

Hell Yea...

they spend how many countless BILLIONS on fighting weed..
not to mention the cost of prosecuting and imprisoning the ppl that
are unfortunate enough to get busted..

George Carlin said it best..
'legalize it, Tax it.. and focus about something that matters'

Wouldn't the world be a better place with hemp being legal .. Imagine how many people would just shut their pie hole and relax.

One vision, one dream.. 420

Good ad!! lets hope the point gets across

A very well done production. I put it on level with the "O" "I pledge..."
video. However, this one is much more palatable.

"I pledge... to indulge. Change, YES we cannabis"?

is there any proof marijuana is addictive,, in fact i believe the opposite is true

and no one has ever died freom marijuana either

do you have proof of the above quoted statement

and not gov't propoganada lies of that

ok ok did my own search,,,some say yes because it has released small amounts of dopamine in rats

but i think as is said in some links it is more of a habitual habit,,,more than say, opiate addiction


and yes,,,if it's addictive,,that seems damning right

but alcohol and cigarettes are legal,,,and you can even die from alcohol withdraw,,,not marijuana

it seems there's not a single agreed upon defintion of addictive now

also from this link

marijuana myths

all below statements are FALSE,,see link for why

1. Marijuana causes brain damage

2. Marijuana damages the reproductive system

3. Marijuana is a "gateway" drug-it leads to hard drugs

4. Marijuana suppresses the immune system

"Addiction" might not be the right word, but a lot of people definitely become dependent. It replaces their day to day life, so going back to 'normal' for longer than a day can be a huge downer, and they lose the will to do what they would normally be excited about.

But that's only some people, and it's a lot less hard to see than someone addicted to alcohol or other substances.

Being lethargic is a lot better than being in need of a fix, often to the point of violence.

There's a pretty public issue that should push this to the front of most mainstream outlets...

"Pot charge possible after Phelps’ pipe photo"
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)—Olympic superstar Michael Phelps could face criminal charges as part of the fallout from a photo that surfaced showing the swimmer smoking from a marijuana pipe at a University of South Carolina house party.

A spokesman for Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott, who is known for his tough stance on drugs, said Tuesday the department was investigating.

...Not to mention obama's own brother-in-law recently getting arrested for possession.

I just wish more people would recognize the ramifications of this stuff in relation to obama's "change"...
I've never used "ramifications" before.
