I know succesful and respected people who use canabis. It's the abuser not the user that's the problem.
Not wrong at all, may as well come out with a statement like "life is a road leading to disaster".
I know plenty of puffers who have been smoking cannabis for years who wouldn't dream of using other drugs, including alcohol.
I also know people who have gone off the rails, but to make a blanket statement "wrong" is wrong.
the one thing that is indisputable is that people who have a tendency for dependency ,once they've got a skunk dealer sorted then a coke dealer and crack dealer will be easier to find once they're in that world . saying that,if they couldn't get drugs they'd just get out of it with alcohol,and if that got too dear there's always glue,petrol,butane,mushrooms oooh the list for the wannabepissed goes on !
The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - its all that matters.
Your wife saw cannabis users who turned to harder thing. I have seen many cannabis users who haven't. My observations are no less valid than hers.
Your (second hand) conclusion was it "Was a road leading to disaster" ie The Daily Mail conclusion. Just a black and white argument.
Addictive personalities and/or circumstance play a much bigger part in the story. Alcohol and tobacco lead to the same disaster given the right circumstances.
I have smoked for over thirty years and have never touched harder drugs, been offered them plenty of times but it's just not my bag.
I also do not get behind the wheel when i have had a smoke either, these new laws have bugger all to do with road safety and everything to do with going after a certain type who they obviously despise.
Considering other more liberal countries are legalising/decriminalising cannabis, this country is taking us backwards. Reefer madness, anyone?
It also appears that the new drugwipe kit only tests for cannabis and cocaine at present, who is the biggest risk? The pothead who had a toke the night before or the smackhead who has just whacked up, safe in the knowledge that as long as he does'nt look wasted and his driving appears ok, plod will let him drive on....
