    US scare propaganda against pot certainly includes the ridiculous ’30s film Reefer Madness. But what they did in that movie was get the facts totally wrong on purpose, substituting the addictive stimulant effects of COKE for the non-addictive depressant effects of POT.

    Weed has never been LEGAL in Canada. I live in Ottawa, I know it’s not legal.

    It is NOT a criminal offense to possess 14g or less, unless it is split up into bags to traffic.. Then you get questioned to say the least. However, the police etc are VERY lenient when it comes to weed. The most that will happen if you possess a small amount of weed, is getting it confiscated so the cops can smoke it themselves. Like 80% of cops in Canada are cool about it imo. Weed is harmless.

    And what is a drug? If we define ‘drug’ by addictive+toxic, then there are plenty evidence that alcohol and tobacco, heroin and cocaine are drugs, but after years of research I have never found the slightest evidence that cannabis is a drug. Nor mushrooms and salvia divinorum BTW. Neither in the literature, nor did I heard any complains on its use. I did find many confusions between “a -> b” and “b -> a”, but all “scientific papers” showing cannabis being a drug are today well known as craps.

    @Judeau0311 When a dopehead stops presenting marijuana as a medicinal alternative ……which is not why they are interested in it….and as a means of getting up …..then I will consider the individual as talking honestly about the subject. I agree that hard liquor is bad…….so is marijuana…..both of them often times leads to harder drugs

    @jmallton perhaps they might prefer to have a joint every once in a while without being called a criminal, what’s so bad about that? Seriously man, if you actually tried marijuana you might know that it’s not a big deal.
    The only reason it’s a big deal is because it’s off limits…
    Just like bad words to little kids…
    It’s the one’s who have realized this that actually question the real motives for it’s prohibition…
