But until you do, maybe keep your judgements to topics with which you have some actual experience.
Why ? Everyone else here are letting there feelings known and so am I, that's what this board is about.
You're right. You have every right to say whatever you like in regards to any topic. I was in the wrong & I apologize.
Sizemik said it much better here:
Being "good for you" is relative. I doubt there is a "legal" pharmaceutical that is 100% "good for you". All have side-effects, some of which can be extremely harmful. But they are utilised simply because their absence would cause greater harm. Thalidomide was legal . . . and touted as good for you. Wonderful cure for morning sickness . . . shame about the side-effects. I've been legally prescribed drugs that have almost killed me.
Legality is a poor way of establishing what is harmful and what is not . . . it may be time to drop the notion.
MJ is illegal in NZ . . . no medical concessions. I won't bore you with my state of health . . . but I grow my own and use it on a regular basis . . . as do my wife and 2 of my 3 grown children (the other doesn't like the effect). The medical benefits are manifest, and I also enjoy the narcotic effect . . . without feeling guilty about it.
I don't drive while heavily influenced and don't drink alcohol. All my family are responsible users. If people wan't to be dangerous and irresponsible . . . it doesn't matter how they gas their tank.
I would say that the pharmaceutical companies have a large stake in this . . . it's too easy to supply yourself, and is too good as a medicine.
Trust Uncle Carl . . . not the Govt.
