Here is a great film about the history of marijuana in the USA and the heavily-politicized nature of its prohibition.

The current view is that approximately 50% of people with MS experience pain or discomfort at some time during the course of their disease. When severe, pain in MS can be among the most difficult of symptoms to treat. Common aches and pains that affect the general population are probably more frequent in people with MS than in non-affected individuals. Headaches are not generally regarded as caused by MS.

The real test will be if a local authority like Dun Laoghaire or Fingal decides that it wants to have to enable marajuana in their area.

I don't want The Man anywhere near my stash, thank you very much.

Legalise heroin and state control it, and keep everything else as it is. That would help the serious junkies, relieve the cops of an impossible job, hugely undercut the crime bosses and leave the stoners to get on with their sofa revolutions (which is serious business).

Saw this deeply depressing Meth Before/Afer series of pictures earlier on Buzzfeed:

Before & After Meth

If you don't know yourself what drugs you can and cannot handle, you should probably leave them all well alone. Nothing more pathetic than an addict lacking in self-awareness.

Disgraceful that the Dail Health Committee is blocking the medicinal cannabis bill. Woman with ill daughter who has campaigned for medicinal cannabis legalisation is on Radio 1 now. Says shes in Switzerland because of the ban here.

On other hand Minister Simon Harris is establishing a "Compassionate Access Program" to review the rules to allow it in limited circumstances. Woman in Paragraph 1 says whats on offer is far too mild and has side affects for children with epilsepsy including loss of appetite and sleep deprivation. She says her daughter hasnt had a seizure in 9 days under the Swiss system.

How are the harming themselves? Its a fairly mild drug compared to booze and smokes.

100 % correct.
The level of ignorance surrounding Marijuana is both astonishing and depressing.
