True. But damn.. It would be good if we legalize it. Not that i would use it though.. The1Chaos quite summarized it for me regarding the advantages.

You can enjoy life without dope. Quick copy and paste of the side effects:

euphoria, slowed thinking and reaction time, confusion, impaired balance and coordination/cough, frequent respiratory infections; impaired memory and learning; increased heart rate, anxiety; panic attacks; tolerance, addiction

Some of those can be quite dangerous, and I don't want my country being thought of as containing a bunch of legally addicted fools. :uhm: I also don't want to see more corruption in the government. Right now the tobacco industries have a pretty tight grip on the government, I don't want to see companies profitting off of currently illegal drugs influencing the government that for the most part dictates how I live my life.

well explained by memorex and the1chaos. Im so sick and tired of people thinking every dutchy is a podhead, and you can smoke/grow/sell whatever and whenever you like. this it not true people! read memorex's piece good, its the truth. and for the people that are interested in dope. (partly because they CANT probably):

dont do it, - its not as fun as everyone tells you it is - its a waste of money - you lose a respect, either from friends and/or family - most importantly, the risk of losing yourself is high, and thats not worth it.

and yes,

Im dutch.

Pretty much the same effects as alcohol causes. So why legalize one but ban the other? I would say either ban both or legalize both. ;)

Because it would never pass here, the tobacco industry wields far too much power, they are basically untouchable. If I had my way I would make alcohol illegal as well, though I fully know that alcohol is only toxic in large portions. And as history has shown, it spawned a heck of a lot more problems than the original addiction, family abuse, poverty, etc...

You know, for all the hype made about the Netherlands legalizing stuff, you really seem to miss the point. It’s not as if prostitution, drug use, and other illegal things don’t occur in other countries, they just occur illegally. It also ironically occurs on a much larger scale in other countries. People die when a drug deal goes sour in foreign countries. People O.D. daily on ‘illegal’ drugs. People regularly contract S.T.D’s from prostitutes who have not had a medical exam. Those things shouldn’t happen, because they are ‘illegal’, but they do. And that is where a lot of the danger comes from. By legalization, the Dutch government is really protecting people from the dangers of having to take a practice ‘underground.’

Example: Amsterdam’s Red Light District is interestingly one of the most secure regions of the city. Cameras on every street corner, a good surveillance team; there is little or no violence and, when there is, the criminal is apprehended in a time which would astound law enforcement in other countries dealing with similar areas. By legalizing (or at least regulating but tolerating it), the Dutch government has succeeded in both 1) Increasing safety for drug users, prostitutes, and other such people 2) Decreasing the actual total use of all substances and situations Because, although prostitution is technically ‘illegal’ in the United States (just an example, don’t bother me about which country I note for comparison), it occurs on a much wider scale. Prostitution is contained in certain, secure areas of each Dutch city, while it runs rampant in American cities. All the Dutch government has done is make sure the druggie won’t leave his house on a drug binge, slaughter a prostitute and abandon her in a car in the middle of the inner city. Even though both drugs and prostitutes are ‘illegal’ in the United States, such scenarios occur much more often in America than they do in Holland. Because of legalization
