Cannabis doesn't merit the "soft drug" term now, if ever it did. THC is a mind-alterant (does that word exist?). In my experience, soft drugs are alcohol (the first 5 units), Miaow Miaow (Happy Shopper cocaine, and no worse for that), mild barbiturates, mild stimulants, and that stuff that makes your face red and your sex-life good (Amyl Nitrate?). These things might get you high, but they don't distort reality in the way psychedelics do (or can). Am told that Ecstacy (MDMA) is good too. Murdoch's pathetic newspapers like to claim all these drugs are necessarily lethal, but anyone with a brain knows it's not as simple as that.

Personally, I think the only thing preventing mass insurrection across the Western World is the 'calming' effect of widespread cannabis use.

Orwell predicted this situation in his book Nineteen Eighty-Four, with a supposedly benevolent dictatorship programming it's citizenry to enjoy their subjugation through media conditioning and the use of a narcotic drug called 'soma'.

With the involvement of the FBI/CIA/MI6 in the narcotics trade (see articles below) an open secret, and remembering the easy availability of cannabis/cocaine/heroin right across the modern West; it's obvious that the State does NOT wish to prevent the masses drugging themselves into a demoralised but 'tolerant' stupor.

Why would our masters be permitting this self-destruction? unless it benefitted them in some financial/social way ?

you cant base a drugs use on the level of damage it causes, if it causes any damage at all then its not a good idea, our bodies dont need to be drugged for us to enjoy ourselves, if you think of a time in your life when you were most happy it would not be when you were drugged, I dont drink or smoke now, and can honestly say the standard and quality of my life is better for not doing so.

Don't think anyone is advocating drugs being available off the shelf for children. Stop scaremongering, it's weak.

You mean you remember discussing it before? ! Crikey.
And they say it rots your memory.
Well done.

This point has been discussed countless times already in this thread. I'm not going to repeat it again for the benefit of a person who thinks my choice of amazon account name means I smoke cannabis.

Hello popcorn player. How do you play popcorn? Is that something you do whilst being under the influence of weed. Surely that says it all. Weed is dangerous to the younger members of society, because it can destroy vital neurons that are needed to connect various parts of their brain whilst it is still developing. Otherwise if you're an adult smoke and keep looking behind your shoulder.

It is only a matter of time now, The cost of preventing cannabis making it onto the streets far outweighs the benefits.

"Increasingly less as the years have passed unfortunately; because I've grown more and more disenchanted with the increasingly low calibre of the clientele; prefer to avoid the drunkards, loud-mouths and troublemakers one's increasingly forced to rub shoulders with."

It's a great shame to hear that CWB but it is the same for me up in the north east. The pubs have either become full of loud mouthed students or alcoholics. Gone are the days I can enjoy a pint whilst having a few games of pool. I suppose we all get old lol.

its the family thing that is off putting, i dont want to be subjected to other peoples kids, pubs used to be an adult domain and i feel should have remain so.

Stranger Things Have Happened Dept... One day, we may have pubs which quite legally sell all safety-tested drugs. Heroin and Ecstacy, like aspirin and Temazepam today, would be part of the drugs-and-food industry. The UKIP-approved middle-aged yobs wouldn't fit in, so they'd stay at home and bore themselves silly rather than annoy innocent patrons; stoners would have their own corner of the garden in which to toke and possibly sleep; ministers could "chillax" with a line of coke; etc. This may sound like sc-fi, but we've seen Cameron and Clegg in some sort of harmony (not to mention Paisley and Adams), so who'd say it's impossible?

The pubs where I live are still doing well & are increasing in popularity if anything. They sell themselves on good food & real ale & most try to encourage families. If you know where to go you can get a good pint for £2.50. I don't go out with friends very often but as a family we quite often pop out for a pint. Compare that with £5 a pint in Bristol (my nearest decent city) though & I can see why pubs are closing. I had a day out in Bath over Christmas with some friends & a lot of the pubs have have turned into overpriced Gastropubs. Not an enjoyable experience, too expensive, small portions of food & too many bar staff with big beards, tight jeans & no socks.

"Christ what pubs have you been to? "

Increasingly less as the years have passed unfortunately; because I've grown more and more disenchanted with the increasingly low calibre of the clientele; prefer to avoid the drunkards, loud-mouths and troublemakers one's increasingly forced to rub shoulders with.

That said however, it's a basic financial reality that as it's customer base shrinks, any business must increase prices simply to remain economically viable, isn't it ?

over the years i have seen members of my family die from smoking related cancer, and that in its self detered me from doing something i could see no benefit in doing, as for drinking, yes as a young teen i joined my mates in the pub and got rat assed with them, but it started to have detrimental effects on my attitude as time went on and i started to long for that first drink, so i gave that up as well, and over the years i have not missed it, i made good use of the money i would have spent on those vices and im pleased i did.

"Rottweiler dogs turned loose at the first raised voice" Christ what pubs have you been to? And I'd say drink prices put more people off pubs than smoking.

There's a reason Wetherspoons are so consistently popular across the UK with all types of people - fair prices, decent range of products, and you know what you're getting with one
