What if...
    #4228363 - 05/28/05 12:08 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Cannabis got legalized in the whole US, with the same statues as in Amsterdam ? Pro and Cons :

Pro : Less violence based around distribution, more money from overseas tourists, less crime, more money spent on junk food, ...... *Did i miss any ?*

Cons : A lazier nation.....?

L8t3r,

Tyler

Pros: Many :wink:

Cons: Cons..Conservative uproar? Who knows, maybe it would cause greater prejudices? Straights v. stoners? Well, im sure the stoners would just sit back, while everyone else got all fussy. Unless of course, there were negative energies supplied to the smokadelics :stoned:

cons: it would soon be illegal. Knowing the American system, everyone would blame cannabis for their stupidity, and it would soon be fucked over.

change needs to come before legalization.

It's not just G.W. that opposes legalization, it is a majority of lawmakers as well as the general population. Plus, the president has no power to enact new legislation outside of either vetoing or signing it, and even a veto can be overturned by, I believe, a 2/3 vote of congress.

It is indeed not legal, just decriminalized to an extent. Cultivating marijuana and possessing large amounts is still illegal there, though mostly overlooked, while small amounts are tolerated and sold at coffee shops. To my knowledge, you couldn't go to a coffee shop and pick up a half pound, but the sale of a few grams is tolerated, hence the impression that it's legal.

If it became legal, the alcohol industry would definitely lose some business, unless they themselves started marketing weed.

And who better to commercially market weed then Anheiser-Busch?  Bud Light for the drinkers and Bud Green for the smokers! :thumbup:

Think about it- THC-infused drinks would be incredible. Actual distilled Green Dragon, or weed beers, or cordials.. that'd be great.
