    I've never met a pothead who beat up his wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, or any other loved one, friend, or acquaintance while under the influence of pot. I've met quite a few who forgot to though. Most of them seem either really giggly, or really relaxed....though I believe they refer to it as 'vegged'. Alcohol users can't say that. As nuts as it is to park your life at the end of a joint, parking it at the bottom of a bottle of alcohol seems much more common, but it's legal at least, right? There's a story about a car accident posted on this site today, and it's possible cause being alcohol. Stories like these seem to be very, very common compared to similar stories of potheads. Few of you have been affected negatively by the standard pothead, but I would bet many of you have been directly affected by the standard booze user at some point in your lives. Another thing, an attractive drunk is hard to find, but there sure are some sexy potheads out there! The social acceptability of both substances, in general, would have served mankind better if they were the opposite of what we actually have today. It'd look funny, though, taking a toke for communion or making a toast at an event with a fat joint, haha.

    LOL at you potheads. Why don't you put down the green pacifier and face the storms of life like a man?

    I think Harper should read his own words. By legalizing weed and having it grown locally (BC has some of the best weed in the world) he will do more to the illicit drug trade than all law enforcement of the past 50 years could do. Time to come into the 21st century and stop spending millions on policing weed and using it to make billions in tax revenue.
    Weed is not near the social cancer that liquor has become.

    But I thought that one of the chief reasons for legalization was to get controll away from those organizations that the PM was refering to. If the gov. took over, wouldn't the cartells and gangs have less to do with the trade? Marajuana employs more people in Canada than mining and farming put together, and earns more money than wheat does. I think it's ...high...time to look at legalization, or at least decrimilization. Look at what happened to the mafia after prohabition was repealed.

    So buying marijuana somehow supports organized criminal cartels that wreak havoc all over the world mr. harper? well i grow my own so i guess Im not hurting anyone.

    Well thats not true because i still give my money to the government who spends it on killing innocent civilliansin Afghanistan to fight big business war on countries who resist and refuse to hand over its resources for the sake of western interests.

    If stoners ran the world it'd be safe, peaceful and efficient.

    yes, it's THAT EASY.

    Just legalise it....it's THAT EASY.

    Easy as 1, 2, 3 and A, B, C.

    Wow....well, let's look at where the majority of weed comes from. You look up the ladder of the source and money and you will find it's most likely ends up in the hands of organized crime.

    Now I'd be willing to bet that they would not appreciate losing on what appears to be a multi-billion business for them so member of the 93% can stroll down to the local coffee house and light up.

    No, what would probably happen is these organized crime members would start popping up coffee houses all over the place with ''legitimate business owners'' to run them.

    Because for them to do that, it would be THAT EASY.

    My god is Harper really that stupid? Marijuana is FARRRR less harmful than Alcohol. Why can't we have respectable marijuana establishments? Do you not drink wine, beer, whatever at occasions? Is the Alcohol corporation in Canada not respectable business?

    Harper is an absolute moron.

    Once again a politician asks a question about legalization and they just scoot around it calling it something else.

    Harper seems to forget that the reason why we are going to these people and buying pot is because theres no other way to get it. The home growers are not cartels, they are honest hard working people looking to make an honest buck in an honest market. The real problem arises in BC and along the US border where cheat marijuana is traded for expensive Cocaine and then sold here in Canada at a higher value than what the pot was worth in the first place.

    So by keeping pot illegal you strengthen the drug trade across the border, strengthen the profits of cocaine barrons and let your country be ravaged by illegal drugs while the honest pot smokers who dont hurt no one suffer the consequences.

    These cartels wouldnt be in business if pot was legal here Harper just completely contradicted himself.

    The real reason why Harper doesnt want pot legalized is simple. He's a christian, his friends are all loggers and oil companies. All of which are threatened by the legalization of marijuana and hemp production.

    Canada, if you want to pay 4 times less for paper and news print, if you want to pay less than half the current prices of gas, go out and grow your hemp run your own cars on its oil and make your own clothes and paper. Protest and demand change. Iggy wont listen because he wants to be Harper and Harper wont listen because he wants to be George Bush.

    Welcome to the United States of Canada where the game is denial denial denial and transmutation of the subject into something else thats easier to dismiss. Im sickened by this country I dont need to be babysit over what I put in my own body. Lets not forget that alcohol was illegal too and put zounds of cash into the underground. Twas the whole reason the thirties were dirty.

    Maybe Harper and his gang should get together for a real 'session' on the hill and see if they can come up with some innovative ideas to make some cash through regulation and involvment in the primo AAA bud business out west instead of singing the same old tune... 'But the bad guys get all the money boo hoo' Figure it out man!!! Its getting old, wake up and make a plan!!! Its like finding Saudi Arabi in your backyard and ignoring it. At least having the govt involved would add some credibility to a lot of the small towns in BC where everyone is well off, but no one works (apparently)??? Oh wait they do work, in Canada's biggest underground economy: BC Bud. Do it man!

    Telling it I don't smoke pot, but I don't understand why alcohol is legal, and big pharma is legal, yet pot is not. When alcohol was legalized in the thirties did the mafia start setting up bars? Maybe some did, but criminals don't seem to enjoy legal business very much, too much hard work. Your argument is lame, as are many of your posts.

    haha, yes the drug trade is controlled by violent cartels. You know why Harper? Because you make it the trade illegal. Dealers can't go to the cops when they get ripped off so instead they organize themselves into gangs. Organized crime is the illegal trafficker's police force. Open up the trade to the light of day and cartels will lose their monopoly, the government will make tax money from it instead of shelling out millions to suppress the trade, pay for drug rehab programs, incarcerating criminals etc.

    Hard drugs kill and should stay illegal but pot and other harmless drugs shouldn't be the concern of the police unless minors are using it.
