About "when Americans go abroad and smoke a joint in Amsterdam and think they are exempt from prosection back in the US"

& your point is they are not exempt?
Certainly people have been prosecuted for under age sex that took place in foreign countries.
yeah, "Certain" people.

how about Roman Polanski ?

It didnt, im not gonna lie and say it did sound sarcastic. if thats what he meant thats good for him and i acknowledged it. or do i have to apologize for miss understanding something?
I just felt offended cause of the comment and i replied accordingly, obviously ive been corrected and i accepted it. Its never a shame to acknowledge that you were wrong and thats what i did.

About being stoned, is that a failed attempt to go after me? hehe

I do smoke up, and im entitled to do what i want where i live, thats one thing i love about switzerland is that you really can do what you want according to their laws.
In some other western countries they have big talks about freedom of speech and all that nonsense when infact they do the complete opposite. The US is a good example of that. Patriot Act.

Im not an American and I dont think i would like to be one, not because i dont like Americans, i dont have any problem with the people of the united states, they are normal average people and i have alot of american friends even though i think they should try to strength their geography knowledge
but im not gonna lie to you and say i like their gov or support it. cause what the American gov does around the world and their history around the world makes them look bad. but Never blame the citizens of a country cause of bad choices their gov does or did.

Its the same with Jews and Israelis, the jews are not a problem in this world or to arabs like some ppl would like the world to think, and infact alot of them are great people who really do want and work for world peace, but the Zionists and their extremist actions/views is what most ppl have problem with, and by ppl i mean Americans, Europeans, arabs, israelis and jews as well.

Everyone is entitled to his own opinion at the end and no one can take that away from you.

I do want to apologize though if my miss-understanding of his comment made you think im being aggressive or show some hate in any way from my side and if it took this convo off its topic.

tbh, im not a frequent Forum user and all this is kind of new to me. so bare with me even if i am using a username that might give you the wrong ideas about me

peace!
Curiously, is pot legal in Switzerland?

No, you cant buy it off the street or a shop. but you can grow it to a certain point in your garden as far as i know.

smoking it at home is not illegal, unless they changed something in the Law that i dont know about.

Please correctly me if i was wrong.

in late 90s though early 2000s, there used to be shitload of weed shops that you can buy anything you want, just like in Amesterdam and for very cheap too. but as far as i know when the far right took power they closed all them shops.

Re: Question for US expats on extra-judicial killings

Well I just consulted, in the last hour, my "plant burning consul" and they told me you can grow like one plant for home use, and medicinal use, when prescribed is also "allowed". That it's illegal, but if you are to your self about it, the police will leave you alone.

Don't ask, don't tell.
