    I think they should legalize it, and I don't even smoke it.

    Yes.

    I live in Amsterdam, people think it's legal here but it isn't. It's just tollerated.

    I think it should be legalised. Holland's got it right - It is much easier to keep a check on things (prostitution/weed) if it's open opposed to if it is done in secret..which it is. It's also made into such a big deal in England ect because it's illegal and naughty oh errrrr...I know sooooo many dutch people that have lived their whole life around coffeeshops and smart shops (they sell herbal Extacy ecttttt) and they have never touched drugs in their life and have never even been bothered about smoking a spliff because they are around it day in, day out and it looses it's appeal.

    I dunno if i'm making sense, im so tired :eek:

    It is obvious that the so-called government is only interested to keep their citizens health enough to support the system so the people at top can feed from the "cattles". United States outlaw the use of weed and similar substances, but it doesn;t ban cigarettes, nor do they provide national health care. Thw way I see it is this thing kills your brain cell and it definitely have negative effects on your body. But so is driving and boarding an airplane, which aren't absolutely free but people do them anyway. Most people in the world don;t have any opinion on anything. It is a few people in power or with the tools to spread the prapaganda that do, and most poople's opinions are just a translation of that opinion re-expressed through their mouth while they think it is from their own.

    Whenever I see the anti-drug commercial on TV, it makes me sick. Media trys to portray the drug-users as an "inferior" group. That's open discrimination. US used to ban alcohol, too.

    Red zone? You mean the red light district. Yes, that is where it's legal. They have special windows and rooms. But most larger towns have their own red light area, not just Amsterdam.

    When I was younger and I came to visit my mum in Holland with my granny and aunt... It is customary to show tourists around the Red light district, but my mum obviously didn't want to take me as it wasnt suitable..sooooo she made me wait with my uncle and her reason was ''Its full of tramps, Mella'' But I thought she meant tramps as in homeless people. So for years and years I thought it was one big hangout for homeless junkies. :eek:

    It's really cool there though and is actually my absolute fave part of A'dam. The bars there are the best. Just avoid making eye contact with the junkies injecting themselves on the bridges and the hardnut pimps and you'll have a grand old time.

    They were going to decriminalize it here in Canada. you could get caught with up to an ounce of pot and only get 100$ - 400$ fine.

    Im not sure what happened as to if they passed the new laws or not. I think they tried and had lots of trouble so they killed the idea.

    They ran a pilot program in Brixton (SE london) where you wouldn't get in trouble for having it...

    I thnk it caused more problems than they anticipated though because people were just going down there to smoke... Then people that did other things came too, then so did crime - the list goes on.

    If a government wants to test whether or not decriminalisation will work, do it country-wide... Not in a small area where all the low-lives of society will flock to (Brixton isn't exactly mayfair either).
