Answers: The safest countries for using cannabis include: Australia because in Queensland, Tasmania, and Victoria you can have up to 50 grams and only receive a ticket; Bagladesh because its legal; India, because its legal; Pakistan because its legal; Macedonia because its safe for small amounts, an…d people with large amount will not get in much trouble, the cops will probably confiscate it and go smoke it themselves; Netherlands, obviously the country most famous for cannabis use. Many other countries, such as Germany, Venezuela and Peru, have decriminalised it as well. ( Full Answer )
Yes. If cannabis were legal, a whole revolution in society would come through. We can start buy saying that cannabis is a completely non toxic substance, minus the inhalation of smoke (no matter how you cut it, your lungs do not enjoy sucking smoke). In fact, no one has ever died, and has had cannab…is as the direct source alone. Now if one were to drive, operate heavy machinery, etc, while intoxicated is a risk made by the user, not the substance. Since it is blended in with other illegal narcotics in the underground drug trade, the 'gateway theory' comes to play when a cannabis user is tricked into buying a different product for profit of the dealer. now if legal, dealers would lose money. How? Well if legal and taxed like alcohol, it is specified, leaving the 'gateway theory' debunked as they would only sell cannabis in there stores. As well, it would require ID, ergo leaving it out of the hands of children( because dealers could care less if a four year old wants cronic, as long as he has $70 and nice clothes, he'll deal.). If treated like alcohol, it would reqire new jobs to be created for production and transportation, and evening out the statistics of distribution. Not to mention the medicinal benefits (of whitch are being ironed out in canada as we speak) that would be included. The whole industry is a multi billion dollar industry,and its in criminal hands. it could be as easy as legalization and that would show that cannabis is safe,does not cause harm,and would have benefits on thee whole nation,as well as spreading new pop culture and stimulating the media, and society in general.

Answer . If what you mean is growing Pot legal...absolutely not. It is a much more serious offense than possession. Cultivation charges are generally considered similar to distribution...even if only a few plants.

Cannabis laws have changed recently, and it has been reclassified. It is now a Class B drug so it remains illegal to sell, possess, or allow the use of cannabis in your own home, but the police can deal with it, at their discretion, with a caution. In addition, especially if you've been taking it fo…r a while now, you might want to find out more about the effects and risks of taking cannabis. Cannabis comes in different forms and is taken different ways and each of these can lead to a range in intensity of effects and risks. If you would like to have a chat with someone about legal issues and how to keep safe with your cannabis use you can call Frank on 0800 776600. There are also local services you can visit if you'd like to talk to someone face-to-face. These services are free and confidential and can give you advice and information about keeping safe. yes in some places like jamacia but not in usa,cannada,nz,usa,usa. ppoooootttt iz gooooooooooooooooodddddddddd wel it make u feel good lololol ( Full Answer )
Depends on what you mean The immediate effects: you will get high; you can hallucinate, get giggles, munchies etc. You may become philosophical or become focused on something, then again you may just drift off and day dream. Things may feel great by touch, you may get hot or cold or tired (this can …be positive cos you have a great sleep but if you want to stay awake then its a negative). There are some negatives such as dry mouth. Mianly, you become a happier, more sociable person especially compared to someone who is drunk and making a fool of themselves or being violent. Long term affects: gateway drug theory - some believe it is a gateway drug however most go on to harder drugs because of the crowds they hang around with. Addiction theory - cannabis is less addictive than chocolate or caffeine however many claim you can be addicted to it, this is because of the tobacco people smoke in spliffs with it. Apparently it can alos affect your motivation but that affects people who smoke it all the time; personally, i find the occaisional spliff before a task makes it far easier. ( Full Answer )
Pretty fantastic - for most. Others don't like it too much, and that's all right too. Some really enjoy it, others not so much, it can depend on a number of reasons. Most people have grown up being told it is bad from birth and therefore believe it is wrong despite all scientific evidence to the… contrary. Others can have a bad batch or bad trip on their first time and wont touch it again, or it simply isn't for them if they prefer being drunk or another drug. Some just love it basically, and it can become a lifestyle choice. My life is affected by it, i don't drink because i prefer mother natures (or Gods) herb rather than man made poison. ( Full Answer )
Answer . It has a painkilling effect, can cause deep relaxation and an altered perception of time it will stimulate your appetite (munchies)and can cause fatigue and disorientation. if you smoke loads you can make your self sick known as a 'whitey'.. My answer: The effects are different for ev…ery person. Some common effects also include a deficiency in estimating distance (if you smoke a LOT of marijuana), and a distorted sense of time, not in the sense that everything is in slow/fast motion, more in the sense of, "Woah, only 3 minutes have gone by." These effects are caused by increased THC-laiden blood flow to the brain, which increases oxygen flow, which also helps create the effects associated with cannabis intoxication. ( Full Answer )
Cannabis is illegal in France. However, use of is generally tolerated so long as consumption is discrete.
It has not been conclusively proven either way whether the legalization of cannabis would increase or decrease crime rates in the US; the debate goes on, with different people putting forward different theories. There is a possibility that crimes related to fund the habit would increase, but it is n…ot likely; people who use the drug are likely to do so regardless of the law, as we see in society today. If cannabis were legalized, those who would use it more regularly would probably be the type who would use it more socially and less often, paying for it with money earned from work, rather than from crime. The logic behind this is that the current users, the ones breaking the law, are the more regular users who can only afford to fund the habit by committing crimes. This would mean that crime rates would remain more or less the same. However, you also need to consider that everyone smoking marijuana would no longer be breaking the law when they used it, so crime rates here would go down. The overall effect of this would probably be a reduced crime rate. Further research would be required by experts before a government decision on the subject, but the outlook does look positive in terms of crime rates. Another factor to consider is that there may be knock-on effects to the legalization of cannabis: Some people claim it can lead to the use of stronger substances, but the evidence goes against this. If those people who started using cannabis went on to using stronger drugs, then the crime rate could be affected adversely, with people commiting crimes to fund addictions to heroin, cocaine or other drugs. It very much depends on the scale of the knock-on effects. Although unlikely (research HAS proven that cannabis usually doesn't lead on to harder drugs) they could possibly occur. My conclusion, therefore, is that the result of legalizing cannabis would most likely lead to a reduction in US crime rates, but not definitely. . Adding to what the previous respondent said in the last paragraph, this is recognized by many political parties across the world, usually those that are left of center, which have the legalization of cannabis and other substances written into their manifesto. In some countries, there are parties solely aimed at achieving this; the best example is the Legalise Cannabis Alliance in the U.K. In some countries whose government stance is more liberal in this area, it is already legal, e.g., Belgium and Russia. As far as violent crime goes, the statistics are inconclusive as to whether legalization would result in a reduction. In Belgium, where the drug is legal, the most recent study of homicides per 100,000 people showed a low rate, just 1.50. Then again, in Russia, where the drug is also legal, the most recent study revealed a 16.5/100,000 homicide rate -- a definite correlation can not be seen between legalized cannabis and reduced murder rates. In places where the drug is illegal the same thing is true; no pattern seems to exist. . ( Full Answer )
Your question is a little vague, but I'll risk making the assumption you mean short term effects. Rather than long term heavy use.. Cannabis has many many different effects, depending on the person taking it, the environment the person is in, the mood the person is in, the amount of tolerance the p…erson has developed and whether the person has been taking anything else amongst many other variables.. Also the type/strain of cannabis can make a lot of difference in many cases.. I have been using cannabis on a daily basis for 4 years now, in my own experience, people with very little tolerance to the drug and who are introduced to it in a very relaxed and comfortable manner (perhaps by a loved one as a couple at home, and not in a group) can expect to see everything as somehow more beautiful and defined. Minor OEV's (Open Eye Visuals) can often be expected, sometimes to the point of being able to make anything you look at take any shape you fancy. (Cloud watching can be an amazing experience to a 1st time user) Also a feeling of tiredness, and relaxation, also minor confusion. A greater appreciation of music (even music you normally would hate) can usually be felt. Expect to fall asleep if overly comfortable.. However in a different environment, expect this to change completely. In an environment around a group of people you thought you were comfortable with, you could feel extreme paranoia, an inability (or lack of want) to move or even talk. Sitting in a silent state of fear that you don't quite understand and can't make sense of due to not experiencing it before, and the confusion that coincides with fight or flight responses only makes things worse. Cannabis can also make logic VERY difficult (Maths is a classic example.) However it can stem all the way down to basic thought processes, further amplifying the confusion/paranoia problem.. In serious cases one can often expect to feel scared to even do something as simple as step up a curb or even stand up, for fear! however fear of what, you may not be able to figure out.. As tolerance develops one can expect less of the paranoia however this can take some time for some people (even years). However even after 4 years of daily use if I find myself in a situation high, that I'm not used to being in high, minor paranoia can still easily strike.. Other very common side effects are: Munchies: You find you are constantly hungry no matter how much you eat, you can eat to the point where you feel you should explode,... and then happily carry on eating. This tends to slowly subside as tolerence develops.. Fear of the Dark: Even someone with a high tolerence, when faced with walking down stairs in the dark can find themselves being so overly cautious it can take minutes to actually get to the bottom!. Giggles: Generally comes more with Sativa dominant varieties more so indica, however users with a low-medium tolerence tend to get this the most even from indicas. Often at parties where spirits are already high, or in situations where nerves but not fear can kick in. One can find themselves in public places with completely uncontrollable fits of laughter that can last for what seems like an eternity. Heavy users don't tent to get this as much, especially with indica varieties.. Short term memory loss: You will often find yourself completely forgetting what you were about to say, right in the middle of a sentence. As soon as you realised you've forgotten what you were about to say, you may also realise you've forgotted the topic of the conversation you've been having for the last 45 minutes. This can be very frustrating, but equally hilarious. This tends to be an effect that takes a high tolerence before it begins to really fade.. Bloodshot eyes: Most users find they get redeye. Eye's feel dry, and red, Not sore but sometimes a little itchy. Following Redeye is slit eye. Where the eyelids also begin to close. and you find yourself being able to see perfectly, even though your eye's look almost completely closed in the mirror. This also subsides but usually only with very high tollerence does it go away.. I do not want encourage cannabis use, but I won't slander it either. I can only speak from my own experience, so please bare that in mind. I hope this has been of help to you and others.. Note: Mixing cannabis with alcohol creates something entirely different. (Even if you have a very high tollerence to both seperately). You can almost garentee an unpleasent experience until a 3rd tollerance is developed. A tollerence of them both combined. This has caught many people off guard. Be warned. ( Full Answer )
in certain states in America , i.e. California with a medical license, and Holland , where its legal to grow 5 plants outdoors
Yes, but it will take a lot of work on the part of activists and concerned citizens. The matrix of greed, disinformation, corporate and power interests, lack of media attention, harsh penalties for use and distribution, and fear on the part of the general user to speak up, keep this failed prohibiti…on in place. The best way for those of us who wish to see the laws changed is to support organizations like Americans for Safe Access, Patients Out of Time, LEAP (law enforcement against prohibition) MPP, (marijuana policy project, NORML (national organization for the reform of marijuana laws) by getting on their mailing list for action alerts, and donating time and money. If we can get the Federal laws changed, this would open the way for more research to be done on the incredible medicinal potential of cannabis. As far back as 1974 cannabis was shown to shrink tumors, and kill cancer cells. Many researchers want to study the healing qualities of cannabis, but are denied access to cannabis for the studies, by the US Govt. monopoly on legal supply. As you may have heard, in spite of the rhetoric to the contrary, the United States Government knows full well the medicinal benefits of cannabis, and in 2003 a patent (#6,630,507), based on studies done at the National Inst. of Health, was awarded, not by, but TO the US Dept. of Health and Human Services. This patent states, unequivocally, that cannabinoids are useful in the PREVENTION and TREATMENT of a wide variety of diseases, including stroke, trauma, auto-immune disorders, HIV dementia, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. If everyone who was interested in ending cannabis prohibition, downloaded, printed and sent a copy of the first page of this patent to their respective elected representatives, the mere volume of evidence and public pressure would bring about change. These guys do want to get re-elected, after all. And when they perceive that the public is truly ready to end criminalization of cannabis, then it will become legal again. By, the way, about 70% of the US population supports decriminalization. Eventually the politicians will catch up. ( Full Answer )

It should never be legalised ! Driving under the influence of drugs is just as dangerous as being drunk at the wheel !
You, yourself can not. Join legalization groups, try to protest about it being illegal. It probably will not happen any time in this lifetime. Go to Amsterdam, it's legal.

Cannabis will turn you into a crack head and you will kill lots of people. Just joking. Smoking cannabis relaxes you, settles your mind and puts any current problems on hold. You don't worry too much about anything. One popular misconception is that smoking cannabis can cause mental heath issue…s. End of. However from personal and second hand experiences, i don't believe this completely. I started smoking when i was 15, young i know but i wasn't really too bothered about the consequences. A year and a half after i started smoking cannabis i developed a low mood, a depression if you like. This stuck with me for about two years. I cant prove that it was the cannabis that caused this however i cant say it wasn't There was a lot of things happening in my life that were out of control and perhaps i just smoked cannabis to get away from all that but it just built up and things got worse. Now, i was young. My brain wasn't fully developed. I believe that smoking at this age is not good, not good at all. I am now 18 and i have been smoking again for a year again. No signs of any low mood or negativity. SO - if you're below the age of 17 stay away from smoking it often. IF YOU'RE OVER 17 - It relaxes you and is an amazing social smoke. ( Full Answer )
