Am NOT a smoker but would very much like to listen to those who smoke especially this plant(we call it ganja) in Uganda

I have done volunteer work (leading a man's group) in a primary alcohol detox in patient facility. When I tell you that Cannabis is not harming adults, it's not the same as some ex-law enforcement heavy coming out for legalization. Those folks made a living extolling the virtues of alcohol while incarcerating free individuals who's crime was invented by an act of political NOT MEDICAL prohibition.
I think if former and active law enforcement want to do something for legalization, they should petition the courts to strike DOWN these Cannabis prohibition statutes through their fraternal organizations like the Police Benevolent Association, the Police Athletic League and the Fraternal Order of Police. Also, the District Attorney's Office meaning acting District Attorneys should petition the courts en-mass to strike these poisonous statutes from our body of laws forever! Until that is accomplished their "retired renegade testimonials " amount to little more than a public relations campaign, a change of window dressing for what has been and continues to be a pernicious campaign of vicious misinformation against Marijuana users and the PLANT itself by THE Law Enforcement COMMUNITY in the United States.

T Sean says: "Never the less, I am sick of MJ being lumped in with other more harmful drugs." Don't you mean you're sick of MJ being lumped in with harmful drugs"? The word "other" implies that MJ, too, i s "harmful." Personally, I don't see any of them as harmful per se. They're like pistols: they're only harmful if you use them improperly. And MJ is far less "harmful" (or less likely to harm) than alcohol, which is legal.

T Sean, At any rate, thanks for your support if it comes to a referendum. I'm just exasperated with people who have no idea what pot is about. It's not about tax income. It's about legalizing mj because it's the right thing to do. It's a euphoriant, unlike anything else in nature. There's no comparison with tobacco, booze, or even coke—totally different chemical categories, if you remember your organic chemistry.

Oh, I never said I NEVER "smoked". I don't "Smoke" anymore. Haven't since High School. Never the less, I am sick of MJ being lumped in with other more harmful drugs. Ther are so many benefits from legalizing MJ, it's a crime not to.

T Sean, You can't learn how to swim by reading a book. You have no idea what it's like. If you're not into grass, your input should be taken with that proviso.

I’m not a “churchie” (pardon me, I’m a bit of a neologist). Still, I acknowledge your right to receive Holy Communion even though you don’t even get high. That’s big of me, right?

I wanted to say, I am not a "smoker" but feel that legalizing pot would help our economy, and overcrowding prisons situations. I am for it. If the Govt. is going to allow people to drink then allow them to "Smoke".

If you re-read my post, it says "shortly after I first smoked." I think cannabis does strange things to you when you are not yet used to its effects. It was at that earliest use that I was so-effected. i also recall things like the illusion that the corner of the room was tipping, such that I wondered why I was not tumbling across the floor, lol.

But evidence from studies, including laboratory simulations, feeds the stereotype that those under the influence of canniboids tend to (1) be more aware of their impaired psychomotor skills, and (2) drive well below the speed limit.

Good writing, Mac. Grass is fun even when you write about it.

Both you guys touched on the driving issue. I wish the universities would study the concerns of people instead of all the weird crap they're into. The authorities should know the facts and they don't. This whole DUI thing is an overreaction of a few MADD lawyers, (see DUI story above.)

I'd bet in a legitimate, reliable and valid driving experiment, the heads would do okay. You're more aware of speed, more respectful of this life, more courteous and less aggressive. Once you make an adaption to the effects of the smoke, you a good driver—but I'm just guessing. They need to explore the subject for the sake of people instead of money and corporate power.

"...the numbers of "marijuana-only" traffic fatalities are so small....."

Well....? Seems to back up your plea for legalization. I am ex-drunk. I think pot is relatively harmless in comparison, athough when one first starts smoking it, the "time-lag phenomenon" (for want of a better phrase -- I mean, the perception that time is slowing down) sometimes results in risky driving. For example, just weeks or months after my first joint, I drove through the intersection of Santa Monica and Vine on a red light. "WHAT red light?" lol.
