Good idea . Any new sustainable industry is surely to be encouraged in these times . There is also the whole area of medical products such as tinctures ,creams and other cannabis related pharmcueticals . As we know it is already recognized as legitimate medicine in many countries including the US and Canada .

Spotty likes a bit of the weed as much as your next recovering hippy, but the problem is that if you legalise it, the damned scoundrels will tax the hell out of it.

Spotty likes paying €25 for his quarter. He's damned if he's going to pay that much again in taxes.

Spotty should be advised that AFAIK this is the male plant, not the female plant and therefore far less likely to induce wild flights of fancy.

Some slightly embellished history of the weed.

10-10-10: The Marijuana Conspiracy - Over The Limit Entertainment

Loosely corroberated

The Conspiracy behind the Prohibition of Hemp by GrandaddyBonegrinder ~ Dark Poetry

The other point of view

Hemp Oil and Cancer

And one of the oldest writings on the anti-hemp movement and some of the seamier sides of American politics is the Elkhorn Manifesto

The Elkhorn Manifesto / R. William Davis

Many of the more outrageous allegations therein are corroberated here by Tarpley in a long-publisded online book, the Unauthorised BIography of George Bush

George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography « TARPLEY.net

Tarpley is still frothing on TARPLEY.net where Obama and the Banks get a liberal tongue lashing.

Does Spotty know what is in that quarter? CANNABIS-CAMPAIGNERS-GUIDE-SMOKE-SOAP-SMOKE-POISON :eek:

Better to know and pay taxes, than not!

Your choice??? :confused:

It would be a good idea to have drug policies that had good results rather than a situation that produces particularly nasty gangsters.

Will never happen.

You are crazy if you think there are not links at the top of Irish society between whoever runs the country and whoever makes a lot of money from the drugs industry (think "legitimate businessmen") and controls the gangs.

I seem to remember that a company in Cork, based in Little Island used to import loads of it nad then squeeze it to release its juices, for use in pharmaceutical products. Wonder if they are still there?

Best story: 1986 a patrol car was driving in West Cork, and noticed a "green swathe" in the middle of a potato field, that had blight, all the spuds were dying, but not the hemp.
Botany Dept in UCC requested a large sample so see if it was possible to cross the spud with whatever was in the hemp.

That research went no where, and a big party was held in a house on the Western Road, who said the 1980's were dire.

Ah would you not pay a bit of tax for the reassurance that it was muled into ireland officially, inside the ar$e of say a Boots employee rather than a randomer.

I assume all drugs (legal and illegal) enter the country inside condoms place in peoples ar$es.

Spotty, the reason why hash and other illgeal drugs are expensive is because so many middlemen have to paid to grow the stuff, process it, transport it and disperse it into the market.Also, the punishments metted out to those caught in the drugs trade has to be offset by the large 'salaries' paid to drug growers and distributors.

If spotty is smoking soapbar then spotty is smoking chemical ************************ !
if spotty ever went to Amsterdam then he would realize that you can not buy a quarter for €25 of any type of cannabis .

END THE WAR ON PLANTS !

prohibition has not worked , legalize it and tax the hell out of it !

Maybe spotty won't pay, but a lot of punters would, to avoid dealing with scumbags.

Can just imagine the boost to Irish tourism.
