round my way if you get burgled you likely wont even get a visit, just a number for the insurance. but they would bust you for growing your own medicine that meant you cost the NHS less. its a funny old game innit. when the police funding is slashed to ribbons what will they do then i ask. going after organized gang who wreck properties and steal electricity should still be a priority but the persecution of your average guy with a meter square should stop.

feck the DEA shouldn't even be asked. What they gonna say, yeah legalise everything, I'll get a job in maccies :). On a side note, I read about a month ago that Durham in the UK is fine for growing a couple of plants. The chief constable has said that he will not arrest people with with bud or a couple of plants in there garden.

Yeah, it's fun to watch organizations like the DEA eat their words. "Ummm, ok, so heroin might be a bit more dangerous than marijuana. But we're not experts on that sort of thing."

We've got the DEA in the U.S. just now admitti ng that marijuana is probably less dangerous than heroin and it's being applauded as a big step. I think you can throw as many independent studies at the government as you can find but it won't matter until its their authorized departments doing the research.

There are certain restrictions beyond which there are dangers. We must get abide by such measures.

by the way i read about schizofrenia in this thread, since a few years it is proven that schizofrenia is not an illness.
Science can prove all they want, its cheaper that it is not an illness, so no illness.I told doctors this 10 years ago, but i am not a scientist.I believe my eyes,ears and experience.

Doctors and People have already proved that Cannabis has a medical benefits and I think this reason is fair enough. I mean, why do Government still prohibit the use of cannabis  when in fact it can be use to cure illness or other stuffs.

I remember  a research program of the government of the U S A  in the Netherlands in i believe the 80'S
it was to prove that using cannabis in traffic is dangerous, i believe it was in the area of VENLO, on a new highway wich was not in use at the moment of research.
it stood in dutch newspapers: the conclusion was BLOWERS ARE BETTER DRIVERS, less accidents,better behavior all possitive!!!
the results of the researchtest were NEVER PUBLISHED IN THE U S A!!!

I am thinking of a little research project, and anyone who wants to join in is welcome.

The project is to dig up the numerous reports and studies published over the last 100 years or so that have found cannabis to be overwhelmingly useful, safe and undeserving of prohibition.

The thing is, there are dozens of these studies which consistently find the hysterical view of cannabis and its dangers to be false - from The Indian Hemp Drugs Commission Report (1894 - 3000+ pages) to the Wooton Report (1969)
to the various studies by the World Health Organisation (UN), to the recent report published in the British medical journal The Lancet and the studies done when the UK made cannabis a class 'C' drug.

The problem is that each one of these studies represents years of work - compiling and assessing data in a rigourous, scientific manner, then drawing rational conclusions and finally publishing them - only to be forgotten a few weeks after being made public. If they make the news services at all, they usually attract very little attention.

The process I've noticed in recent years is:
1) A reliable, neutral and above all informed organisation of experts (doctors, scientists, professional researchers) publishes a report finding cannabis to be relatively harm-free. In the case of recent studies, it's usually been to report that there's no real link between cannabis and mental illness (or, most recently, no link between smoking cannabis and lung cancer).

2) If the study is reported at all in the media, it's newsworthy for a day or two, then slips into obscurity

3) Within a week or two, a body of non-experts - 'family' groups, concerned citizens' organisations, advocacy groups for law-enforcement professions, etc. - issue a call for 'more studies into the effects of cannabis on mental health' or something similar, usually enhanced with emotional references to 'the children'. Such reactions are usually given much more publicity than the study itself.

In this way, the years of research and large sums of money that went into the study are effectively negated in the media with the simple and very low-cost technique of acting like the report never existed.

Every study that reports findings contrary to official cannabis propaganda just seems to disappear down the 'memory hole'. The calls for studies into the dangers of cannabis stay in the public imagination for much longer, due to their emotional content and their frequent repetition.

So, despite the flawless credibility of report after study after report, the impression that remains in the mind of the public (at least, that part of it with little personal experience of cannabis) is that there are unspecified 'concerns' about the safety of cannabis and of the mental state of cannabis users.

Compiling a list of the favourable studies done over the years may be 'preaching to the choir', given that all or most forum members already have a rational, informed view of cannabis.

Still, such a list will make interesting reading and a good reference.

Also, the real studies of cannabis are especially informative when their content, tone and interpretation of data are compared with the reports issued by prohibitionist organisations (most notably the US government).

Even without judging the merits of the arguments given by each side, the fact that anti-cannabis material is always filled with emotional appeals, anecdote and disingenuous framing of data, while the studies which find little or no danger in cannabis tend to be reasoned, neutral and present their findings in a scientific way.

It's almost as if one side has something to hide...

Hey reddeath,
 
Good article dude ! Thanks for the link ! It's kind of funny though that it says:
 
"cannabis is non-toxic and may hold significant neurological benefits, including the treatment of certain neurologic diseases such as Alzheimer's disease"...
 
Because we've all had those times where we were so stoned that the state of our short term memory was close to someone with alzheimer's Wink.

Did anyone see that recent episode of Weeds where Doug keeps going to the kitchen every 5 minutes, opens the fridge and says "where did all the cheese go ?"... That had me cracking up Smile
