Legalising cannabis simply comes with far too many significant risk factors. Beyond the blatant health ramifications, any attempt to legalise cannabis may set a dangerous precedent in regard to other restricted substances. I fundamentally oppose making cannabis more readily available in our society. It has no benefits that justify the costs that will accrue.

Who are you to say what risk is too high? You may believe that chance of infection my be too high to allow tattoo's or peircings ....but the decision is not yours to make.....the decision is mine and mine alone. How dare you. This is a free land....not one of forced ideals like the Nazi's or Chinese.
