I find it quite sad (and incredible at the same time) that arguments like this still exist around poverty.

They might own a smartphone as well!

Well they need to get on HOL then.
If nothing else it would take their mind off a fix or.............. maybe not

An obvious place with legalisation is the new USA legalisation. I don't think, personally, that legalising weed, regulating it and getting tax income would be harmful. I would think it's largely beneficial. For a start, let's face it, there are millions of weed smokers in the UK.
Some arguments: firstly, the stuff could be clean and regulated, hopefully non harmful, certainly less harmful than currently.
Secondly, apart from other benefits mentioned such as tax, the police could go after far more harmful criminals.

For balance, I guess the downsides are hungry people eating donuts at strange times, a certain laziness, and possible mental health issues. Of course, the issues exist legal or illegal. It seems less harmful to legalise and regulate in my opinion. Pass me a j there man.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Maybe you're right overall, however I can see a serious issue straight away.

It doesn't stop the criminal supply it just changes it. The state are creating a less harmful product in some ways (though lets not forget the mental health risks). However, they can and would be undercut by the criminal black market supply chain.....they simply reduce prices and while the circulation is reduced it still goes on.

Essentially it makes it cleaner and safer for the middle classes, while enabling the poorer classes to get more of the sh1ttier product for less.
