I really don't agree with man made dangerous hard drugs, i think it's all disgusting!! However, I also don't agree with people being locked up for using/supplying Cannabis. Cannabis is God's gift to us, a natural weed, who are "THEY" to tell me that I can't have it? Alcohol and tobacco does more damage than Cannabis ever has. Alcohol kills, and causes folk to lose their minds every weekend, it's the fuel of domestic violence and ruins people's lives, the statistics speak for themselves, yet there has never once been a fatality due to Cannabis use, it comparison it's a passive plant. Furthermore, hemp would literally save the world. Do you know how much forest we could save if we used hemp instead of trees for materials and fabrics, hemp instead of oil for plastics which don't biodegrade and stay in the earth for 1000's of years? It takes 100's of years to grow a substantially large tree, but you can turn around acres of a hemp crop twice a year ...How much healthier the world would be using hemp fuel as invented by Henry Ford in the 1940's instead of burning fossil fuels and causing pollution?!! Henry Ford also invented the Hemp Car, made from a hemp plastic that's 10x stronger than steel and much lighter than today's cars. Honestly, the governments and huge corporations of the world need to take a serious look at how they're ruining things and stop thinking with their greedy pockets, we really are at the cross roads of our future as a civilization, and we're running out of time fast. If we care at all about our children, we all need to educate ourselves and take informative action!

We need to reduce both demand and availability of drugs in order to minimise the harms caused by illegal drugs.
