I agree with B Gillespie that cannabis use can be detrimental to young people. But he hasn't discussed alcohol, whose effects ranges from foetal alcohol syndrome to excess aggression.
Moreover he groups synthetic cannabis and cannabis together. The only thing they have in common is the name cannabis.
M Chamberlain makes some rather dubious claims.
Firstly, that any amount of cannabis leads to intoxication The same could be said for alcohol, otherwise why are new drivers forbidden to use alcohol when driving?
What was the name of the study he cites about the university students who suffered cognitive declines?
I would support both of the above people if they would also prohibit alcohol. Surely a
completely drug free society would be better for us all. I lived in the Middle East where all drugs apart from Nicotine were illegal. As a result the streets were much safer than in NZ cities.
I believe that many legal prescription drugs could also be outlawed because they are dangerous (Opiate derived) ALAN COOMBES
