Cannabis, misunderstandings and possibilities.

I think a lot of the things being said now stem from the plain fact that the Government at present have abjectly given in to something endemic they feel they can not fight. So they seek to liberalize and soften the impact, to talk down the effects, and to move the goalposts as they do with anything that is a little too difficult to deal with in a proper manner. Sweep it under the carpet and relabel it as something else.

Cannabis Legalisierung
I speak from having taken cannabis in the seventies, the hippy era of peace not war, love to all men, much of whose language and terms are now coming back into trendy and cool use. But there are fundamental differences between then and now, which young people should be made aware of.

Then the cannabis was in the form of a leaf, a naturally occurring plant. Now it is synthetic, as in most of the other areas of life where the natural has given way to the unnatural, to our eternal detriment. Coincidentally enough, it is now around forty times stronger, as well as being chemical based.

The Governing people who seek to legalise and feel the danger is slight, are by and large ex users of a much lesser potency of a naturally occurring plant. They feel little danger in occasional recreational use of a drug they feel did little to harm their long term prospects.

This is based on the false assumption that people tend to start smoking it around university stage and peter out of its use in a few years, with no addictive element. Also that they tend, like we did, to only use it occasionally at times when we needed to calm down after a tough project, or relax at a concert, again remembering the product then was one fortieth as potent and much more mellow than it is today.
