It is true that possession of small amounts is no longer considered to be an arrestable offence, but the police would retain the power to arrest marijuana users in certain "aggravated" cases, such as when the drug is smoked near children. The maximum sentence for dealers of class B and C drugs has been raised from five years to 14 years

I wonder why I didn't hear about it on the news..
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 7/24/02 - 2:39:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well,so many ppl smoke it so it was a bit hard to get rid of it in the first place.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 7/24/02 - 6:28:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
I welcome it with open arms yayaaaaaay!!!!! no its better cos that way they can actually do they're jobs and sort ot the real crimes like rape etc.

Yes. If the police aren’t tied up with the cannabis users then they can concentrate on the harder dangerous drugs

I totally agree, weed isn't bad, it's fun... It makes you smile and happy and makes life better and way funner. There's nothing wrog with it is you know how to consume and on occasional times. not like weed is bad!!!

Weed is great
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 7/24/02 - 3:59:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it's a great step forwards.

Weed should be legal! It hurts NO ONE. So much time and money is wasted on non violent criminals, just for a little weed. Even our presidents do it!

oooh jeez pnk..don't bring up that bastard

I hate to say anything negative but mary jane can cause slowed reaction time and stuff like that. Home use is the way to go. Never operate heavy machinery after taking a couple of bong rips. This is just a psa.

it's about time us peace lovin "save the planet" types got a break... too bad the movements dead and our world is not far behind it seems
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 7/25/02 - 5:45:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think it's a good idea although I don't understand how anyone's gonna buy it if they concentrate on locking all our dealers away. It's not like we have marijuana plants growing all over the place.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 7/25/02 - 6:41:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Is it legal for you guys to buy it too? our government found it funny to say "It's legal to smoke pot, but to sell pot, you have to get a license from the government" and then never gave out a license. But that was in the 60's, then it became illegal all together.

Finally... Many benefits come into play... The police aren't tied up with something as minor as someone smoking weed... The US army has determined that weed's only long term effects are similar to those of smoking cigarettes, and has no long term neurological effects, and its short term effects are similar to those of alcohol, in terms of reflexes and cognitive awareness. Thus, they finally legalize something that is an emulation of two already perfectly legal 'drugs' anyway... Morale is up because MJ is now legal there... I wish they'd do that in America... not that I'd be one of the people smoking it, but because it is relatively harmless compared to other drugs and I hate to see MJers punished as badly as Crack Heads...

Really? I've always wanted to visit BRitain...
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 7/25/02 - 8:56:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
i think i might move to that wonderful place
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 7/25/02 - 9:37:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think all drugs should be legal. There is no possible way to stop drug use. Plus it makes the world a better place(with the exception of crack and heroin).

I'm going from the basic principle that there's no such thing as a non-dangerous drug, otherwise they would all be legal (yes I know tobacco and alcohol is dangerous but I'm coming to that). But in the end the government can't tell you what you can or can't do to your body. If you want to take a potentially harmful substance that's no business of the state so long as it doesn't threaten anyone else's safety. Besides, it frees up police resources for more important matters such as street crime.
