"Mushrooms are banned... They grow in my garden, I'm going to jail aren't I? Cultivating a class A drug"

They're only class A once dried, fresh shrooms are iirc only class C.

Thanks Andy mate, still carries a 14 year prison sentence if they suspect I'm supplying.... :S Should I be buying weedkiller?

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Apr 2012 16:28:12 BDT
Nah I reckon you'll be alright, and considering they can sprout overnight unless you plan on laying weedkiller daily I don't think it'll make much difference anyway.

I remember many years ago shrooms used to grow on my school field, and the teachers always thought I was keen getting in early.

Pop: legalising something makes it available to all. Do you want your partner, kids and freinds high as kite when you engage with them?

Pop: Good luck. When you have a member of your family addicted to drugs, lets see your dismissal of the problem then...

Spin says:
The term "Drugs" is used as an expression of rebellion, without the realisation of the mental and physical cost of such a lifestyle. Only those who have "done" drugs realise the folly of such a lifestyle...The ignorant do not care....

It is available to all - IT IS LEGAL because the prohibition is a myth.

SA: Fine. Send me a quarter of hash and a half-Q of horse. No doubt I can explain my delivery in your terms to customs and excise....

Yeah because making something legal means that everyone will become addicted to it, there's no such thing as self control is there spin, the law is the only thing between civilisation and a heroin habit.

That's why everyone outside of Muslim countries are alcoholics isn't it.

Andy: If you are happy with getting your tooth pulled or your heart transfered by a guy high as kite, good luck to you... Yeah, drugs are cool... Life operates according to the principle of being f***ed.

Popcorn player said, "There is nothing wrong with weed. Compared to alcohol it is less processed, less damaging to yourself and society".
Because something is "less damaging" it doesnt mean it not still damaging. Both alcohol and cannabis are drugs and by nature are damaging. We should be moving away from the usage of all drugs for the benifit of society.

That maybe so david but as long as alcohol and tobacco are legal and cannabis is illegal carrying possible jail time for selling... the government is putting forth a hypocrisy and it's not right. Its a plant for Christ sake. It's not as if it's poison...

Spin,
"Alcohol and cigarettes are legal. Yet they cause more harm than good."
That's true, they both cause more harm than cannabis ever could, that's why i find it's legal status a ****ing joke. It makes no sense.

Joe. C says:
Another example of a legal drug that is far far worse than cannabis, salvia divinorum. I smoked some of this stuff in a bong once, it's like the worst whitey cannabis can produce X100 and it's legal. Although to be fair i can't see anyone getting addicted to it. You'd have to be mad.

Andy,
Really? That baffles me you can eat them fresh or brew them dried and get the same effects. I used to have the occasional shroom session lol. Good times...

"Because something is "less damaging" it doesnt mean it not still damaging." - Not deneying the fact, but David, 1 in 3 of us will develop cancer, so with your logic, living iteslf is bad for you, everything you do in life is bad for you in one way or another. Do you live in a city? I do, pollution is bad for my health...

Once again Spin you demonstrate that the only way you can try and argue your point is by taking it way out of context.

Do you worry about getting your tooth pulled or heart transplanted by someone who's bladdered, no. So why would you need to worry about someone being stoned doing it if cannabis were legal? The answer is your wouldn't, assuming it were made legal it does not automatically follow that places of work etc will suddenly decide it's ok for their staff to come to work stoned.

Try again Spin.

"watching an episode of david attenborough's: Life on Blu-Ray." - I could not have selected more appropriate viewing material myself Joe. C. Also, cannabis makes BBC4 a treat for the eyes. I watched a cracking docu about crufts the other week, learnt alot :D.

People already do these drugs. Legalising them tends to reduce their appeal.

Yes, you are right. Its legal in Amsterdam (to a degree) and the locals don't think much of it in comparison to the tourists who flock there to use it.
