    No country has yet legalized marijuana, almost half of the world’s 147 nations have, to some extent, decriminalized it. Most people In North American are in favors of legalization, most politicians do not, since America’s 1937 worldwide legalizing.. Most powerful groups of enforcement agencies and lobbyist are, the alcohol and tobacco industries, pharmaceutical Forestry, oil, and cotton, companies and the prison-industrial complex. Not to mention 50,000 other product cannabis makes, Marijuana is a slang name from the Mexican drug. Lawyers and cartels win most when the War on Drugs is 1000 for Drugs and 1 for the People.

    Cannabis is the most important plant on earth and the green power is the greatest people power for the people. Why is synthetic corporatism taking over us and repeatedly shaping our laws and public opinion to reflect their views.

    My second choice of greatest conspiracy is the light-bulb conspiracy, what two are yours?

        Are you really equating the denial of marriage to a loved one with the love of a drug to mess up the functions of the mind?  Really?

          I would not equate the phyical damages of cannabis to alcohol,  tobacco and pharmaceutical and worst prison-industrial complex.  All things in morderation of drugs, cannabis is a much safer drug than those 3 with far more benifits than any other plant on the planet.

          Cannabis and who you love after the age of 21 of the existing laws is far more damage than good. At least treat cannabis laws as well as tobacco, in which tobacco has no benifet.

            "cannabis is a much safer drug than those 3"

            Really?  How many pot smokers have gone through, say, 40 joints per day for 40 years?  What were the results?  How does it compare to the cigarette smoker doing the same thing (of which we have millions of examples)?  You shouldn't make claims you cannot back up, including the ridiculous one (again) of being the most important plant in the world.

            "tobacco has no benifet" - you obviously are not a tobacco user.  As an ex, long term, user, I can assure that statement is no true.  But I do think that the laws (for now) should be equivalent to alcohol.  Not tobacco; ethanol.  I would not work next to someone high any more than I would someone drunk, nor would I ride in the car with a driver on weed.

      The Curse -
      The shell I have found is mostly abound with the horrid evil I most fear.
      It does not provide the glorious space where I find that soothing is near.
      The frightful features I dread so much, are bounding through my mind.
      They play with my dire youth and innocence forcing a continual grind.
      The cruel idols of the midway blind, boast about a drab and dismal light.
      When my desire for covering, is a festive beam that flows ultra-bright.
      The demented casing that the habitation drugs place on my atmosphere.
      Fill me with now agony temperament, one that says, I wish I were not here.
      My curse is that of a fanatic student, addict, disciple, and lover of a snort.
      This shell is a voodoo bout, far from reality, an awful deceitful creed sort. 
      A place where monsters live and sport within my cranial thermosphere.
      Ultraviolet shuttles raging above a layer of spinal altitude accord of sphere.

      Awakening anatomical swarms in hollows exposing barberry cruel cavity. 
      Architecturally it molds capricious circles branding plural misleading decay.
      Prevaricator not lineage nor persevere, there be, my shell is the curse I say.

    I think the biggest conspiracy is the conspiracy of ignoring the really important issues, such as the fact that we live in an unsustainable society that will most likely fail, sooner rather than later, in favor of focusing on less important issues such as pot and gay marriage.

        janesixposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        First you have to have a plan of action before you can start dealing with the details.

        And before you can even start thinking about making a plan, you have to get enough people (and the government itself) to even agree there's a problem to begin with.

        We know what the major problems are, but people aren't looking at the situation as a whole. World over population, limited resources, etc. These are the big issues, but people won't look at what these things together MEAN.

        Basically, the end of civilization as we know it, if we don't start doing something about it while we still can.

        You can't start from the bottom up, with minor details of a much larger, disastrous problem.

        You have to start from the top down, solve the big issues first, iron out the details second.

            Have been thinking about the overpopulation conspiracy. Often the religious think abortion is the greatest mass murder on earth today. When I try to discuss it often enough they want to tear my head off, a birth is a mirricals  many say. Except when we over populate and become criminal like rat race and then the land, air, water and jobs become unsustainable. Anyone that dissents or that tries to rebel the system is sent off for “re-education”. Much of the population have been herded into tightly constricted cities which are run much like prisons.

    tbHistorianposted 9 years ago

    The principal psychoactive constituent within the cannabis plant renders the user incapable of making sensible decisions when reacting to normal situations.  Adding this risk to the environment requires much research that will bring forth truth about the criminal actions, evil situations, and any accidents as a result from the use of the drug.
    However, those who wish to support the legalization of the drug do not want to allow the truth to be provided as it would deter many who may currently believe the drug to be nothing more than an equal to alcohol.
    Few reports have been recorded correctly when encountering criminal and accidental actions that resulted from the drug use.  During a normal traffic stop for example, the police do not ask if the driver may have used marijuana prior to or during driving.  However, when surveying individuals who use the drug, 80% admit to driving under the influence.
    The problem is not the drug, but the drug war.   Like the unhidden results of years of cigarette smoking, the true results of damage to the body from marijuana only shows up as the individual ages.  One major medical factor is the extreme damage to the lungs resulting from continual use of the drug.  This then also affects the brain as the drug deposits settle into the human cells.  The overarching impact is loss of mental capacity within the individual.  The younger the individual begins using the drug, the greater the mental capacity loss.
    Education is the key - the adults must deny the use or the society will fail.

        Society will fail because while a few people like to get stoned, they present a greater risk to the whole than the whole can sustain.  Much like the welfare-slavery growing uncontrollably within the society, the "few people" will grow as younger individuals are coerced to join the "stoned" scene.
        Societies fail due to the evil embraced by a few - that is incorrectly tolerated by the remaining populous.
        Like a cancer in the body, getting stoned destroys the society one individual family at a time.

          No, societies fail due to the majority of people thinking only of themselves, and not the future of their own society. They fail to make reasonable plans for the future that will create a sustainable society.

          There have been very long lived societies, like the early Chinese and early Egyptians, who did just that, and their societies lasted for thousands of years. They of course degenerate over time due to various reasons.

          And I'm not saying any particular long lived society is necessary the best one possible, but at least they managed to sustain themselves for quite a while.

          Societies also fail due to other reasons beyond their control, such as natural disasters or war.

          But not pot.

            tbHistorianposted 9 years agoin reply to this

            degenerate begins with reduced mental capacity.
            the prior societies you describe failed due to the elimination of slavery when the oppressed individuals decided to challenge the ruling class.
            pot is the ruination of the individual and will ruin the society through ruination of the family.
            currently this is seen as babies are born addicted to drugs that the adults used, including pot.
            currently 30% of babies born today show some influence from drug use by the adults birthing them.
            According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "1 baby is born each hour with signs of drug dependence".
            According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "the number of newborns diagnosed with the syndrome has increase five-fold in the last six years".
            babies typically perpetuate society, but many drug babies die early in childhood and younger than peers overall.
            therefore, fewer individuals remain in society to overcome the failure that is inevitable from other outside sources.
            so, even though the final failure comes from outside, it is the illegal use of drugs that created the ability for the outside sources to force the failure.
            anyone who wishes to see this in action can drive through any ghetto and see the results of internal illegal use and external forced failure.
            the USA government has created this catastrophe for many that are caught up in the welfare-slave environment.

              What you aren't seeing is that drug use is only one small factor, with the worst of the problem of drugs stemming from other things entirely.

              POT is not a core issue of what's making society fail. It is merely a smallish symptom of it.

But that would be too intelligent, lets hire another corporation meat puppy to lead us in solving very little. My trust in the majority of the public's consciousnesses and Global opinion,  the other super power.

                Similarly, hemp can be added to anything, but made into asphalt shingles? How do you turn hemp into asphalt?  Or paint?  Plastic, especially biodegradable plastic tougher than steel?

    tsadjatkoposted 9 years ago

    Yeah, what is the reason why some don't want to legalize a drug like Marijuana? It has to be a conspiracy of some sort because what harm can come from consuming marijuana?

    The immediate effects of taking marijuana include rapid heart beat, disorientation, lack of physical coordination, often followed by depression or sleepiness. Some users suffer panic attacks or anxiety. No big deal, some prescription drugs can do the same.

    According to scientific studies, the active ingredient in cannabis, THC, remains in the body for weeks or longer. Hey, more time to feel good!

    Marijuana smoke contains 50% to 70% more cancer-causing substances than tobacco smoke. One major research study reported that a single cannabis joint could cause as much damage to the lungs as up to five regular cigarettes smoked one after another. Long-time joint smokers often suffer from bronchitis, an inflammation of the respiratory tract. Well, don't have to spend any more money on cigarettes now!

    The drug can affect more than your physical health. Studies in Australia in 2008 linked years of heavy marijuana use to brain abnormalities. This is backed up by earlier research on the long-term effects of marijuana, which indicate changes in the brain similar to those caused by long-term abuse of other major drugs. And a number of studies have shown a connection between continued marijuana use and psychosis. Glad I live in the US, I can now go on disability and not have to work.

    Marijuana changes the structure of sperm cells, deforming them. Thus even small amounts of marijuana can cause temporary sterility in men. Marijuana use can upset a woman’s menstrual cycle. Sterility? Ok with me, I don't want no kids and a few less menstral cycles can't be a bad think where I come from...yo,yo!

    Studies show that the mental functions of people who have smoked a lot of marijuana tend to be diminished. The THC in cannabis disrupts nerve cells in the brain affecting memory. Oh come on man, you can't dumb down society any more than our education system and the government already has!

    Cannabis is one of the few drugs which causes abnormal cell division which leads to severe hereditary defects. A pregnant woman who regularly smokes marijuana or hashish may give birth prematurely to an undersized, underweight baby. Over the last ten years, many children of marijuana users have been born with reduced initiative and lessened abilities to concentrate and pursue life goals. Studies also suggest that prenatal (before birth) use of the drug may result in birth defects, mental abnormalities and increased risk of leukemia1 in children. Are you kiddin? we legalized abortion just for that reason, got it covered bro!

      Marijuana is also known as the gateway drug.  The majority of drug addicts started with marijuana.  I am totally against the legalization of marijuana, it can only led to more troubles.  Scientific evidence have proven that marijuana today is more dangerous than it was in the 1960s   What are people thinking in terms of even wanting to legalize marijuana.  Marijuana is not a harmless drug, it is highly potent and can lead to addiction to harder, more dangerous drugs!  In total agreement with Tsadjatko on that one! The downward spiral begins!

    lol. It is not a conspiracy. Seriously, people that want to do it, will do it whether it is legal or not. Wouldn't you agree? The people I know that smoke it, really don't care about what is right or wrong, and the people who do, don't smoke it anyway. Do you guys really know anyone who was like, "I really want to smoke pot, but gosh darn it, it's illegal, I guess I will have to wait till the gvt passes a law." Umm... no. People are simply complaining about the consequences of getting caught, if they ever do.
    Someone like me will never do it, but I do not feel after a certain age anyone, especially the government, should have any power in decisions you make for yourself. As long as you do not bring harm to others, go ahead and fry your brains out.
    The government should treat it same as alcohol. Enforce laws for driving under the influence, or disorderly conduct, etc. anything that brings harm or inconvenience to others.

The RCMP do not have the courage or the ethic to face me nor the public because they remind loyal to their corporate paychecks, not the interest of the democracy public.

      Absolutely.  Just not enough to stop the recreational use.  I know - a person I love dearly has lost several great jobs from testing positive and now works at something far below his capability because they can't find anything else.  Couldn't even report an OTJ accident and get medical care because of the automating testing.  Sure they care - just not as much as blowing their mind apart with the stuff.

    You have created a very lively discussion with many interesting comments.For you, ...a tasty treat of soy cakes,fava beans,and undistilled sparkling spring water is in order,and well deserved.Here are my thoughts on the issue.

    If we use a potato correctly it can sustain life; incorrectly, it will make us fat,and can even shorten our lifespan.Marijuana can affect us in a similar fashion.( Yes! Marijuana can also make you fat)To use Marijuana as a recreational drug is not recommended.It can be harmful to your lungs ,as well as adversly affecting your behavior, your ability to learn,your overall motivation,and one more that many have seemed to miss.There is a myth going around that Marijuana users are more "laid back" and less prone to anger,and violence, than people who drink alcohol. This is only half of the truth,and I have found that many Americans have become very fond of  only "half of the truth", as concerning many topics.

    It is true that while smoking Marijuana,an individual is normally very relaxed, and laid back.But in studies I have conducted with myself ,and through the observation of others,I have found that chronic users have a tendency to become very agitated, and quick to anger in-between "doses".Especially during periods of inactivity that have lasted 24 hours or more. I suspect this is due to the process of physical withdrawal.

    Over a period of  years, (1984 -1995) I conducted a number of experiments on myself involving Marijuana and Sleep Deprivation; often in conjunction with each other.I will not elucidate my detailed findings here,but I will say: Overall,I have found that unless you are involved in a scientific, philosophical,or spiritual inquiry,the damage you can do to your body through the casual,frequent use of Marijuana,is simply not worth the risk.Having said that,I believe it should be legalized,because I believe an adult should have the freedom to even kill themselves; if that is their true desire. But I also believe that through education ,casual use should be discouraged.Furthermore, save for serious medical usage,I don't believe anyone should be able to publicly promote and profit from any substance like Marijuana, or Tobacco; substances that are non-essential, and that have proven in many cases to be harmful.If someone wants to smoke weeds,simply give them the freedom to grow the weeds themselves.Actually,growing your own is better, because then you can be sure that no harmful chemicals have been added to the mix.

      Good your aware more than most.
      Funny, after winning many international awards for sculpture, my peers asked me :what is your secrete ? Answer- don't do drug and been doing sculpture art longer than any person in these events.

      The simply = love what you do and do all things in moderation.

      The greatest issue is children doing pot, using pot more than tobacco because they know it's healthier. Saying no, to a child without good reasons make them want it even more. Spending money for honest education and treatment budget vs. a prison complex and 75 year war on drug that keeps expanding is thought less. Yes, I smoke it as a youth and had a very good time and did not kill anyone.

      Illegal marijuana is dishonorable to our economy,  health and Civilization

    It may not permanently effect intelligence, but I did find that lecturing to a kid who had been smoking it recently was largely a waste of time.  My advice:smoke it if you want, but *after* class.

      Smoking anything is not a good idea and more so for people under age 21. We manage to cut Tobacco in half even when it's being legal in every country in the world, where pot is not legal in every country in the world.

      Canadian teens smoke (per capita) twice of much as dutch kids.
      Marijuana is schedule 1 in Canada, Netherlands it's schedule 3
      Cocaine is schedule 2
      Just say no to saying no without reason

      When 25% of the world's prisons are in the USA where most inmate are over marijuana. Plus more Mexican are killed over the drug war on the USA boarders than killed over their opium in Afghanistan
      Then we have GMO seeds are the same companies that develop and patent the pesticides and herbicides to which the unique seeds are resistant. Monsanto is the largest seed company in the world and owns about 86% of GMO seeds sown globally.

      The larger picture is the synthetic corporatism are taking over the most important power to the people, green . Who really cares, go back to bed America,
      For being a strong optimistic, for when the world turns to a toxic hell and our human species go extinct because we are too big for our brains.
      The sky and water will return bluer and the earth returns greener and more species of animal will return even greater than ever.
