    Like any mediation you have to individually weigh up risks vs benefits. Many medications prescribed for hg are category c. So if it was a c cat drug or a natural one I'd choose marijuana. Luckily my hg was managed by a and b cat meds, others are not so lucky.

    Yes BUT it needs to be very strictly regulated and monitored. As in no driving, taking care of children, correct dosage etc.

    It is a drug of addiction and people can abuse it to easily.

    No way. No currently prohibited drugs should be decriminalised. They are drugs of addiction And they would mast likely be abused. Not to mention they would be made easily more available for children and adolescents.

    I've worked in mental health and have seen waaaaaay to many people be admitted with drug induced psychosis/schizophrenia.

    They're being abused anyway and through criminalisation clog up the justice system with being who are battling substance abuse.

    I don't believe de-criminalisation will increase the use of drugs - pretty sure myself, my mum or my pa are not going to go out and develop an ice addiction because it's now decriminalised.

    It's already easily available and de-criminalising begins taking back control of black markets.

    I don't believe prohibition works, people who are in jail should be receiving mental health care instead of punishment.

    Alcohol, cigarettes, valium, codeine etc are all also drugs of addiction.

    As usual took the words out of my mouth. I have Valium and codeine in my cabinet. And alcohol of course. I just don't see how it's any different.

    The number of kids who would turn down a joint solely because its illegal would be very minimal. And jailing youths for smoking a bit of pot or even having some recreational class A's is madness. In my experience these people are FAR less dangerous to society than the p1ssheads who drink 10 pints and then smash people's heads off pavements when having a drunken brawl.

    Decriminalising drugs won't necessarily see a rise in usage. It just means that people found with small amounts for personal use are fined under civil law instead of charged with a criminal offence. Most found in possession of cannabis in SA, ACT and NT are offered help through drug and alcohol services. I don't see a problem with it personally.

    What's your take on legal prescription drugs though? They are becoming more and more of a problem. I know that call outs to the ambos for oxy overdoses have overtaken heroin overdoses now and as I said before, when I had to detox from Benzos, 90% of people were there for legal drugs. I see prescription opiates and Benzos in particular as particularly harmful compared to marijuana used properly for medicinal purposes. It's madness that OxyContin 'slow release' in particular and Benzos are so easily accessible. Easier than some illegal drugs and just as addictive.

    Big fat YES!!! My mum suffered many years of excruciating pain after endometriosis and many botched operations. She was addicted to many high end drugs including morphine. Suffered terrible depression. Her doctor HIGHLY recommended she try marijuana. She did and it helped. She was able to wean herself off the big drugs and started living a more pain free life. I think if she didn't take the doctors advise my mum would have taken her life. So yes I fully think it should be
