"Well, then you should do your homework a bit better, because marijuana is a lot better than those pain pills you can buy. Oxycodon and its derivatives are basically legal heroin and they are chemical compounds which can quickly make you addicted to them whereas pot is a plant, completely natural.
And the exploitation thing: EVERYTHING is exploited. People addicted to pain pills go through dozens of doctors sometimes until they come home with a big bag of pills. It's especially bad in Florida. And even then, certain doctors proscibe pain pills way too often because they make money doing it.
A little tip. Search "The Oxycodin Express" and watch that documentary, it's on Youtube.
But yes, pot should be treated like alcohol. No use if you're under 18/21 (whichever age the state has allowed for drinking alcohol legally) and no driving afterwards.
Now, this off-topic is over, otherwise Tensor will rap on our knuckles ^^"
Sorry...but: are you serious?
Why is "completely natural" a synonym for harmless?
Morphine is natural, to stick with your example. if you acetylate it, you've got heroine.
Botulinum toxin is and atropine, colchicine, nicotine, bufotoxine..
See where we are going? The most potent poisons are completely natural.
Side note: I don't want to tell tensor his marijuana use is bad.
It sounds very good!
I'm interested if an how it will be handled as medicine in Germany.
