Do you support the idea of marijuana being legalised?
Yes, alongside all other drugs.
Yup legalise it, tax it and spend the revenue on better mental healthcare, drug prevention policies and support for addicts.
Not sure tbf, it depends on how it is done. I like a joint myself and it's decriminalized in Germany anyway so I'm happy with that. I certainly wouldn't legalise the Hard shit like heroin.
Yep. Legalise everything. Marijuana to set the ball rolling.
Eliminates the black market, frees up prison space and better control/support for people who become addicted to said substances.
What the govt don't see is in this day in age nearly everybody agrees with this.
Yup, thankfully I think the tide has already turned, there will come a point where the US gov. at the very least decriminalises it Federally and leaves it up to individual states (but I think when it does this it will be full legalisation tbh) and after that happens other countries will quickly follow suit. We've already gotten medical Marijuana, albiet limited, so even our backwards Tory government that's terrified of losing the old fogies vote has shown to have movement.
I'm more interested to see how Medical and legal psilocybin does after Denver decriminalised it this year as that could be the true floodgates for getting them all decriminalised and eventually legalised.
A big fat ‘Aye’ from me. It’s laughable that it is still illegal and could be revolutionary in regards to medical science
Legalising drugs could solve so many huge problems in this country and will almost certainly reduce the amount of drug related deaths in this country. Carrying on with the ‘war on drugs’ is ridiculous. It’s failed miserably in the last 40 years and has fuelled organised crime, and all the nasty shit that goes with it
It’s that simple! But Politicians are too scared to do that though because of all the propaganda that the recent governments have fed the public about illegal drugs
Just to play devil's advocate, do we not think there are some legit concerns about mental health and cannabis being a gateway drug? It was certainly a gateway drug for me.
But they are aware of what the older generations view is, which is down to government ‘facts’ since the 60/70s onwards. Both labour and Tory are too scared to take that step as they’d lose a big chunk of their support
I find the gateway drug idea laughable. Yeah sure there are issues with mental health and some people really shouldn't take it, but this is a minority and these people are being affected by it anyway even with it being illegal.
Alcohol is the biggest gateway drug of them all.
Of course it is. That and nicotine, but stupid people don’t even class them as drugs
Very few people will smoke weed before alcohol, and especially nicotine.
Alcohol, is arguably more of a 'gateway drug' than anything else. I don't know anyone who tried cannabis, before they tried alcohol.
I say aye
It Is, but that doesn't diminish the argument that cannabis also is a gateway.
There's also a culture that surrounds cannabis that directs people into further experimental avenues.
Absolute rubbish that I reckon sorry brother.
Yep , but control the strength .
Lots of people are suffering from psychosis induced episodes due to the strength that is available these days compared to the mellow 80"s , the 90's when ( smelly draw ) came on the market when everyone was Raving , the 00"s became experimental in the UK with people growing on bigger scales rather than importing as well as legal highs came to the fore , some of the most mind blowing sh*t ever to be created .
So to tax , control , take the money out of the black market is a good idea put to good causes , it may lead to being a gateway drug , but alcoholics start with beer before they have 2 bottles of whisky many moons later .
To be honest , this will be a subject that will split the general public like Brexit.
I honestly believe there would be a similar public response to the response this (fairly public) poll has brought about.
