Yes, full decriminalisation and legalisation of cannabis. Its absurd and shameful how the United States of America are being more liberal, grown up and open minded about this topic, and given the numerous medicinal and economical benefits which we can see being already reaped by states like Colorado, makes it even more of a head scratcher as to why we are so behind the times.
Nearly everything an adult does in their daily lives, is more harmful and potentially dangerous than consuming cannabis, and considering that alcohol (which by any measure more dangerous, and without any notable medicinal benefit and lethal dosage is far more easily achieved - who ever died from a cannabis overdose?) is legal and its companies and products widely endorsed, makes it hypocritical that this plant is demonised/criminalised by the state.

I'm sure you'd all be more than happy to find out your surgeon had a night on the skunk just before he opens you up.

But it's ok that your surgeon had a drink the night before? Idiot

Yes of course people buy it anyway but at the moment the cash goes to organised gangs growing it. Never happen though to many MPs in brewery pockets.

Cannabis is not harmless...it kills off brain cells, gives you paranoia, worries the rest of the family involved. turns the participant into a troll who is moody as hell and wont leave their room, They make even more bad judgements leading to more trouble and heartache for family and the person. and as there is a lax culture and tolerance around it. People will take it for longer being in denial of any problems and are more likely to take other things as a result.

Astrid, you offer a wealth of misinformation and scaremongering. No wonder parents/family would be worried, if they had to listen to people like you peddle lies and 1950s propaganda.
Firstly, recent studies suggest cannabis does NOT kill brain cells, and in fact provide a number of therapeutic neurological benefits to users These include soothing tremors in Parkinsons sufferers, protects the brain from traumas/strokes/concussion, reduces anxiety, slows progression of Alzheimers, reduces and controls epileptic seizures and increases creativity. Add on to this the many other medicinal benefits including the fact it kills cancer cells and helps cancer patients with managing pain and increasing their appetite.
On the other hand, the government permits and endorses the use of alcohol - a drug that DOES kill brain cells. A drug that directly kills tens of thousands of people in the UK each year, increases antisocial behaviour, violence and aggression in its users, damages virtually every vital organ in the body, and massively impacts judgement and cognitive skills leading to thousands of needless accidents. It also has a very easy low overdose limit. None of these apply to cannabis, yet is demonised by out of touch ignorant people. Tobacco kills over 100k per year, aspirin, other painkillers, cough medicine, caffeine, sleeping pills, viagra - all more dangerous than cannabis.

Nah, I think astrid is just wildly misinformed. Like I said in my first post, nearly everything humans do in their lives, from driving in their car, walking to the train station, playing golf or swimming on holidays, is more dangerous than consuming cannabis in the safety of their own home.
Parents should instead focus on educating their children to shun the use of the legal drugs tobacco, and treat alcohol with extreme caution - both being also far more highly addictive than cannabis and deadly. Meanwhile we see numerous adverse reactions to drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen leads to thousands of hospitalisations and deaths per year. Cannabis on the other hand is nearly unique in that it has extensive medicinal properties and no known lethal dosage.
