Hi,

I don't think that this is surprising, however, I can't understand what all the fuss is about.  Obviously there are risks with any drug, but while tobacco, alcohol and a plethora of prescription drugs are freely available, and are in a whole different league of harmful, I find the arguments against legalisation a tad weak.  I think cannabis is fairly easy to acquire even now, and there's no way of controlling quality etc, we may as well legalise it, tax it, and control the sale etc.  Medical studies have confirmed it is useful in treating some fairly serious conditions, so at least there are benefits. 
Interestingly archeological tests found traces of cannabis oil, in vessels used for anointing oils in the Middle East, which dated back to biblical times.  It's original use was as a medicine, makes you wonder how much progress we have actually made .

I'm not a smoker, i tried it years ago, and it was ok, i think sometimes when you're young, there's a kind of thrill about doing something that your not supposed to do.  I don't drink either lol

I have heard that cannabis causes paranoia, so perhaps it should remain illegal, except perhaps for pain relief for people with MS.

The whole legalise maruina argument is similar to the anti smoking campeign. Doctors knew that smoking was bad for ones health in the 1920's but it took over 50 years for the message to be accepted and promoted.
In the same way test on regular maruina user back in the 70's showed that it affected there ability to use there mind, mental arthmatic results were poorer, reasoning imparred etc etc etc and this was based on people using far weaker versions.
The stuff being sold now has very clear links to indusing mental illness.

Euthanasia Bill struck down in Tasmania

<p>The Australian state of Tasmania has rejected a Bill to legalise euthanasia.



So it should be, euthanasia is very bad for your health.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)
