If syanide is safer than arsenic, then should that mean syanide is 100% safe? NO. There is no such thing as safe drug.

There is a lot of anti-drug propaganda as well. Can you tell me why it is considered a Schedule I Narcotic which means highly dangerous with no medicinal value, when A) it's not EVEN a narcotic, and not even close to being one, as it isn't an opiate??? And...B) There is evidence that it does indeed have medicinal value, as well as a lot of other uses, which contradicts what the government and their agencies tell you? The biggest line of BS that I hear is that it is "the Gateway Drug" which is a complete crock of s***! I can tell you that from personal experience. And yes, while I think that the drug war is a complete failure, I most certainly am not into partaking in other substances. But continuing to criminalize people instead of trying to treat it as an addiction problem is not the answer. Commit a crime when under the influence, OK then, we can agree that they should be punished. But I in good conscience cannot consider someone smoking a doobie in the privacy of their own home, a criminal. At any rate, there is no physical addiction to cannabis, so my point about addiction was for other substances, including prescription pain meds, which is becoming a huge problem in this country. I'll bet if people would have options available to them like being allowed to use cannabis legally without being prosecuted, or harrassed by LEO, we wouldn't have this problem with people being hooked on dangerous opiates! I like my options. When I broke my elbow a couple of years back, and was off of work for 2 days, I used cannabis to fight the pain. And believe me, it worked. I told the ER doctor and the orthopedic doctor DO NOT give me any opiates. I don't want them, and I don't need them.

Here is another issue that we're having. Because of the prohibition of cannabis, you have people out there concocting things that have similar qualities as cannabis, yet are synthetic, and much more dangerous. So, now the powers that be have figured this out, and they have now banned those substances, only to find that these people are changing the chemical qualities and coming up with a new product, in which they have to take steps to try and ban that substance! It's a vicious cycle, and it's not working. Legalize the real deal, and chances are people wouldn't be messing with other more dangerous crap!
