Spill over from multiple threads on the P&CE forum: Keep this debate clean or mods will shut this down. The topic is, basically pro's and con's for legalization of cannabis. Related topics include health risks, the potential for addiction, driving under the influence, regulations, etc. To start off: Bostjan is pro-legalization. My stance here is that the government has a terrible track record accurately determining anything to do with the above. What people do at home is their personal business. On the other hand, I believe that use in public is another matter, and DUI is a concern. The government owns the roadways, so their jurisdiction extends over keeping those safe. The latest spill-over from the Trump thread was the debate of whether pot is addictive or not. My stance is in line with scientific data that suggest that pot is addictive, but far less addictive than other substances often used for recreational highs. To expand into another topic- medicinal use. My stance is that pot seems to show promise as a remedy for several neurological diseases, but that there could be a lot more data on this to make a properly informed decision. Ok. Go.
