Great discussion. One thing's for sure about this forum, you may have something more in common with an inmate across the world than the one right next to you. So many points to make...so little time. I wonder who here can say they actually know what it means to feel high? Back when I was on Twitter I followed Marc Emery. He's been traveling and advocating for legalization around the world. Last I saw he was in some Caribbean countries exploring jungle mountains with Rastas and such! He's making progress, and it stands to reason considering their market could be us - can you imagine enjoying organic mountain weed - fresh not all dried out after smuggling forever. Of course our homegrown is nice too, but like we buy French cheese and such, a little sampling of exotic cultures is tres enjoyable and can also help grease the wheels of capitalist trade. Equating cannabis and alcohol, no. Mixing cannabis with alcohol use or with distracted driving, no.
