The Real Reason Cannabis should be Banned Outright Immediatley

Have given this a new Start. As you may have read I am absolutely against Cannabis and all drugs. Peter Hitchens has a very long history of being against drug misuse - especially Cannabis or Marijuana as its also known.
Here's his column from today's Mail on Sunday.

Cannabis means more crazy people
As the sickly-sweet stench of marijuana spreads ever further across the once-civilised Western world, there is one universal result. There are more crazy people. Some of them are dangerous.

Many of them are crazy because they have fried their brains with skunk. Some are crazier still because baffled doctors have added to the cocktail with various poorly understood prescription drugs.

But the chances that you will meet such a person grow daily, as our leaders refuse to enforce the laws against marijuana possession. They will grow still more if they are stupid enough to bow to the billionaire campaign to legalise this poison.

Yet last week I wrote to a prominent political figure to seek his help in fighting this mistake, and he said he was too busy. This may be deeply unwise. Amid the usual emotional and incurious coverage of the latest US rampage killings, the news has quietly leaked out that the Dayton killer, Connor Betts, was (as I knew he would be) a marijuana user. His girlfriend Lyndsi Doll has told the Washington Post that the shooter suffered hallucinations and menacing voices in his head, and feared he was developing schizophrenia. Why would that be?

There's a clue in the logo of Betts's repellent rock band Menstrual Munchies. It is a marijuana plant. But would you like more?

Marijuana has led to a spread of 'crazy people' according to Hitchens

Well, another former friend told the Post that Betts's group of friends had a reputation at Bellbrook High School as 'the outcast kids that the cool kids didn't really like'. And what did they do at weekends? Why, they smoked marijuana. I have no doubt that something similar will eventually emerge about the alleged El Paso shooter, too.

Sometimes it takes months, even years, but it always does. And it's not just in the USA. You might wonder what role marijuana had in several violent episodes in Britain recently, and you would be wise to do so.

A correspondent recently wrote to me from Washington state, which went soft on users in 1971, fell for the 'medical pot' scam in 1998, and ended up legalising it for recreational use in 2012. What happened? He describes matters: 'Seattle has hundreds of people who live on the streets who have been completely relieved of their mental capacity. They have no cognitive functions left apart from shouting incomprehensible nonsense.

'I write this while one such person is wandering up and down the aisle of the bus I'm riding, screaming at the top of his lungs and banging on the windows.'

If only that was all they did.

I'm not sure which way to go on this one, oh don't get me wrong, I'm totally against all drugs but have no idea how they will ever be stopped.
There is too much money to be made by the growers and distributors and the silly prison sentences, (if they get prison), aren't a deterrent.

I see the NHS has said no to the use of cannabis oil for medical reasons until it has been fully tested and approved which will take years.

If cannabis oil is ever approved, will that give the growers an excuse to use if and when they get caught, they can say they were growing it to be given as a gift to medicine.
As I understand it there is a difference between cannabis and the oil of cannabis. The ingredient THC which is the loopy loo factor is not in the oil. Correct me if I am wrong, but that's how I see it.
This issue is on the cards to be fully legalised (I think). The powers that be have secretly given in to the numpties who have been screaming out for legalisation for years. I know all is not well in some of the countries who have gone down that path.
