I have already explained that the drug tests cannot determine if the person was high while they were driving or had used it in the past couple weeks.

Marijuana stays in the bloodstream for a couple weeks unlike alcolhol. It is impossible to prove whether or not the person was high while they were driving.

Well, here's my opinion.
If one country decides to legalise marijuana, that would be a good thing for several reasons:
1. Being legal to sell and buy, the authorities can better control the process of selling. After all, they are the ones who sell. The prices are bigger than the ones practiced before legalisation (as it is in holland), so this will not favour an increase in people who use marijuana, or at least an increase in overall usage.
2. Simply marketing adjustments. The marijuana market will also bring up a profit eventually, so another sum of cash goes to the country's tresorery.
3. Legalising marijuana wil certainly lower the criminal rate, since there will be no one left to smugle it (why buit from the smuggler, witch will still be ILEGAL, when you can get a nice crack right from the general store).

OK, now for another thing. I am from Romania, where it is illegal to buy, sell, smoke, or even carry small quantities of marijuana. In schools, nobody tells the kids about drugs or sex, so they hear this from arround the corner. The educational system is so ****ed up, that most kids learn this from the older students, who are mainly te drug dealers in schools. Yes, it is a common thing here to see a stoned 13 years old kid coming into a class and staring at his teacher for 50 minutes. Well, if Marijuana is illegal, shouldn't be at least some educational methods that need to be implemented in schools? No? Well, this is my country, I guess not. someone with the right parents (lawyers, etc) can easily buy a marijuana cigarette (witch, by the way, will be enough for 3 24 years old guys like me to be hammered) right from under the policeman's nose, and he will not even give a damn. But if, let us say, I would accidentally be cought with that in my pocket, that would be a couple of years behind bars. So legalise the damn thing, it will save a lott of trouble. Here it's used af it is legal, anyway.

After the legalization of marijuana, you will either have a large population of people that are legally not allowed to drive, because they use marijuana. Assuming that you pass laws against smoking and driving. If you don't pass this law and let people smoke and drive, then you will have TONS of deaths due to smoking and driving. I don't see how Holland can function without letting people who smoke marijuana drive. Because as I said earlier, you can only prove that the person used marijuana recently. You can't prove that the person is high.

I voted...

Yes!

I think that Governments could make some serious money from taxing marijuana sales and could keep many normal people out of jail for simply possessing small amounts of dope.

They could also sell the pot, as they sell liquor in Ontario through the LCBO, and create jobs in the process. Following these methods, the Governements could take lots of cash out of the hands of Organized Crime and put it towards protecting their citizens.

As long as education & treatment programs are created to deal with the social problems that weed will create, most issues will be "nipped in the bud"!

I'm not very familiar with pure marijuana, but I use cbd oils. Interesting fact. As of 2020, CBD is legal in the United Kingdom. Credit: herbmighty.com also, cbd oils are now very popular in many States and countries, and is increasingly being legalized. This is a good sign.
