Coming off the previous question, would you say complete or near complete knowledge of Cannabis and all aspects of it is important when writing, proposing, and passing legislation regarding it? (Regardless of political affiliation).
I think people should have us much knowledge as they can about any topic before they pass legislation and I don't think it's possible to know nearly everything about most things. What scares me is legislation getting passed with no study of what the long term consequences may be.
Most legislation is passed to prevent some "feared effect".
I agree. The problem is, that doesn't work well and the unintended consequences seem far more difficult to deal with through legislation. Fixing the problems legislated by fear is much harder because it requires admitting to mistakes and raking responsibility for them - that's not a popular thing to do politically.
That's so true.
Legislative fool doggery is so rarely brought up in campaigns.
No I hate the stuff
I'll medieval of you to ignore facts because you don't like
It makes my husband here in there and it doesn’t make me feel very good. If people want to use it that’s their right. I voted for legalization
If either of you feel like your having amnesia that's actually a symptom of allergic reaction.
With me it is very likely.
Happened to my father after Vietnam, he didn't like it one bit.
I've seen very few friends ruin their lives with MJ. Alcohol and other drugs have a terrible impact.
It's all about moderation just like everything else on this planet they ruin their own life.
Yup. You should be well informed if you’re going to write legislation regarding cannabis.
I don’t think it’s possible for most people to have near complete knowledge on any topic, so no.
Just think of the shit that would get done if all of Congress was toked up for a day.
They'd get more done then they are getting done now probably, haha.
Yeah. It might not be meaningful or good, but it would certainly be more!
Any day congress does nothing is an improvement...
