This:

"Apparently dope is largely decriminalised in the Northern Territory, with cops far more focused on the threat of drugs like crystal meth. ®"

Its a shame the majority of the rest of the world doesn't follow that advice.

Careful with that word "carbon"... you'll antagonize the Climate people... both sides and we'll end up with a shouty filled comments section.

But imagine their confusion. Cannabis... containing carbon. Duuuude, which one to cut down on?

Re: This:

No confusion there: that's why you breath in deeply and hold it. To capture as much "carbon" as possible. It's all very green.

At least, so I've heard. Wouldn't know myself, of course.

When the US of all places has vaguely sensible drug policies (in a few states), the rest of the world needs to buck up it's ideas.

Incorrect. If you carefully read Section7, sub-section D, Para Iv, you'll find that a good lawyer could argue that possession of cake is still legal. It's only the act of eating it which is unlawful.

legalise it

Not only would the govt benefit from the tax they would reap, but social costs would be lower, as more children would grow up with smiling parents who love pizza, instead of drunk parents who like to punch on.

"parents who love pizza"

Haven't you heard that there's an epidemic of childhood obesity? The last thing we need is parents with the munchies setting them a bad example!

Agreed. Legalise, regulate and tax it as per tobacco and alcohol.

Then focus policing on the black market sellers - who when caught can be slammed with double whammy charges of unlicensed distribution and avoiding HMRC & Import / Excise duties, the latter of which should see them in chokey until the next millennia.

With tobacco tax take nose-diving the cannabis taxes would surely be most welcome by HM Treasury. The police would also appreciate it I'm sure - they have better things to do than wasting time cautioning or prosecuting endless piles of people who have a tiny amount found in their possession.

I can't see any of the above coming to pass unless we somehow get a Liberal or Independent dominated Parliament. The rest all seem far too concerned that someone somewhere might be enjoying themselves and that really ought to be stamped out in order to best chase the wet dream of eternal and exponential "growth".

Not a partaker of the stuff myself but the above would really seem the most sane approach at this point.
