Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Long Term effects of Life Education

Life Education Trust - Drug Search - MARIJUANA: "LONG-TERM EFFECTS

* toxic effect on brain nerve cells
* increased risk of lung cancer
* risk of chronic bronchitis
* respiratory diseases/cancer
* energy loss
* slow, confused thinking
* memory impairment
* apathy
* suppressed effects on sperm
* impaired immune system
* blood vessel blockage

PHYSICAL DISCOMFORTS

* diarrhea
* cramps
* weight loss/gain
* impaired sex drive

The marijuana user may experience a physical dependence on the drug.

If marijuana use is abruptly stopped, certain withdrawal symptoms will be experienced:

* nausea
* insomnia
* irritability
* anxiety

Although these symptoms may cause discomfort for a short time, the benefits to a person who stops using the drug greatly outweigh an addiction to marijuana.

Oh yeah.... go ask the 500,000 kiwi cannabis 'offenders', they would laugh in your face! Impaired sex drive indeed!
