    What's legal in the World

    About 33% of people are Christian Illegal in one country

    About 20% of people have had a homosexual experience at least once, illegal in 76 countries

    100% of the world, alcohol and tobacco are legal

    About 44% of people have tried Cannabis at least once
    100% of the world, Cannabis is illegal.

    Can you spot what is wrong here?

      Yes - it is very difficult to tax something you can grow on your window sill. Try making your own cigarettes or whisky.

        Good point

        How would all the rich elite control Cannabis and all the other great different Cannabis products you can make also.

          They would not be able to, because it will grow almost anywhere. This is why it is illegal.

          Think about it - it is against the law to grow a plant. sad

            Imagine alcohol, tobacco and many other legal drugs that dumb one down worst than pot. Although, it leaves a person smart enough to run a rich man's machines

              Maybe with all the global people’s awareness and many countries upheavals over their ugly leaders lately, more power to the people will come out of it.

            You can also grow Opium poppy though, and I wouldn't want people to start doing that!

              I hear it still grows wild in America, maybe they could 'hire' people to help clear it out. Payment would be, you finds it you keeps it!

                America will not admit they have lost the war on Marijuana since it is the USA NO, 1 cash crop, and jail are just too full anyways. Then weed growers come out of jail worst of a criminal than when they went in.

                There are so much marijuana, the cops say their bust fell like it's a just a bucket removed from among the whole ocean of weed out there.

              Have you ever tried to make Opium from a poppy? When you have tried and compared it to taking a bud off a marijuana plant - you might understand.

              The grow 50 acres of poppies - not that it grows very well in the UK - and see what happens. lol

                Actually it is pretty easy to extract Opium from the opium seed pods, that can be done with a few easy tools.

                The hard bit is turning the Opium seeds into Morphine or Heroin, they are the ones that require a lab.

                And they grow Opium in Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire. wink http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article … risis.html

                It can actually be grown in the UK in the open air fields with no hydraulics kits, good luck growing a decent bud of weed in the UK without a hydraulics system and a Halide or Sodium light set up!*

                *Knowledge is not an admission of guilt, just for the benefit of any lurkers.

                Hell, my nans next door neighbour used to grow Bananas in her greenhouse, if she can do that then anything is possible!

                  Around Vancouver you can swim and ski the same day or grow palm and banana trees outside.

                  There was a huge Opium bust here. Yet by far for most people do not want to get that high on Heroin, they want to get a little high like on pot to relax.

                    Most pot heads that I know are the complete opposite to relaxed, they are introverted paranoid people who become reclusive and wary of anything outside their own walls. They have very little social activity, no ambition, and generally lack responsibility for their own actions.

                    That's what happens when you smoke weed everyday, and I should know, because that was me 5 years ago. It took me 12 months to feel normal again, having suffered complete depersonalization, and I now find it perfectly easy to 'relax' with a cup of tea and a plain boring normal ciggy. Occassionally a beer or two.

                    I don't think that legalizing cannabis would make it any cheaper or easier to obtain. In fact I suspect that the legalizing of cannabis would simply see it taxed like cigarettes and alcohol. Growing your own would still be illegal, just like making and selling 'moonshine' is illegal.

                    Neither do I possess a great deal of sympathy for those jailed for dealing weed, there are plenty of legal things that they could trade in, like ice creams or pretzels, or they could try affiliate marketing wink

                No its easy, please remember that there is a big different between Opium and the stronger drugs Morphine and Heroin.

                Opium was smoked in Medieval times, they didn't exactly have advanced laboratories. You basically scrap a sticky residue off of the poppy pods as they dry out, and then you are pretty much done.

                  Did not know that. I mean, I knew about the opium trade, never realized straight opium use was so simple. I stand corrected (and obviously acquitted.)

                  Good point then. Hmmm, I wonder if what we get is gm? Is there a certain poppy required? That's interesting. Wow. You can't grow bud but you can grow opium. Gather and scrape seeds of any plant straight into a pipe? That easily? 

                  Good holy cows. Don't anybody try it. The accounts of the opium addicts were never pretty.

                  I gotta go fact check this. Not that I don't believe you, but damn that's an important point.

                  EDIT: Just reread what you said. Not the seeds the pods, and takes a bit of processing, but hardly more than needed I'd guess for marijuana. Both need gathered and dried. One you scrape a couple times a day I guess. No real diff there.

                  Did not know, thanks for sharing.

                    If you are anyone else is thinking of growing poppies, it is best to note that it is in fact illegal in many US states. You can actually grow the poppies as garden flowers, but woebetide anyone caught with dried poppies in their house, even if for ornamental purposes.
                    It is the dried poppy stalks and heads that are used to make poppy tea and other such things, also collection of opium is through the seed heads as Ryan describes.
                    The botanical name for the opium poppy is papaver somniferum.

                    I suspect that opium is easier to process than you might expect. It's fairly readily available in Laos and Cambodia and pretty easy to obtain in rural villages in Thailand too - particularly in the north.

                    It comes as either a sort of putty like substance that they mix with an aromatic herb of some type and is then smoked. Or else you can buy it in the form of tea. You can often buy opium tea or even joints from bar menus (the "hapy menu"). In some places in Laos and Cambodia this is the norm and is obviously not policed in anyway so they're quite open about it.

            This thought is usually best thought about after a nice smoke, it makes it really funny tongue (caution, with no smoke it can be somewhat sad and bewildering)

      Alcohol is not legal in 100% of the world. Try asking for a beer in Saudi Arabia.

        Castlepalomaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I check out Saudi Arabia, your right I missed that one.

        Alcohol and products containing alcohol are strictly prohibited by law. 

        Other things in Saudi Arabia were unusual too,  like there is no sales tax. Pornography is strictly prohibited.   If your books have covers or pictures that may be offensive, remove them. DVDs may be checked at customs.

    And cannibis is legal in the Netherlands.
    Probably in Jamaica, too.
    And kinda sorta in California, if you have a medical marijuana card (extremely easy to get). Only problem is fedral law trumps state law. So....

    1. Castlepaloma profile image25
      Castlepalomaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Cannabis in Netherlands is legal in small amount of grams or only sold in a few coffee shops.

      Jamaica, fed law makes it illegal and you can get busted as a white person may be looked upon as rich, and often enough they get busted by phony cops. Although haze marijuana is like a religions for many and tolerated.

    I think the world would be better off if somehow it became impossible to make alcohol, drugs or tobacco.

    Is life so bad that anyone has to consume a substance to forget, feel better or pass out? hmm

      Try telling a teenager that weed or anything, this is bad for you. They will hide it and try it and may not trust you as much, if they like it

      It's better to educate them about all products and their pros and cons

        I was thinking, a dangerous thing to do

        100 years ago, 98% of my country was Christian. Today, most of World believes mankind is at least 180,000 years old. Christianity today is at 50% in my Country. Since then, look on how much we have come out of the darks ages.

        We more than double life expectancy; most would be capital of traveling the world and we are worried about a helpful plant.

        Now, if more than 80% of the people would like their jobs that Satan supposes have had to invented. Enjoy your job, it would be the greatest leap for mankind, possible, today.

    It's funny how they complain that people buy marijuana from other countries illegally, and we are feeding the bad guys money. How is thats our fault that has great properties, more importantly medicinal properties. Marijuana is not going away. If they want the to stop funding those people, legalize it.

    It is what it is..

    I think cannabis is legal in Cambodia and India for certain festivals. I either way neither country could care less about people using it and it's easier to get hold of than booze in some states in India.
