My assertions are what is taught as part of becoming as a Master of Psychology at the University of Zurich.
I can't take quackery and pseudoscience seriously, even when under the influence of mind altering substances.

Re: Growing cannabis

Smoking cannabis is not healthy, and cannabis is still a drug. Instead of legalizing it because alcool is not any better, we should educate to avoid using both (although a glass of red wine a day doesn't hurt and it's also considered good for the heart )

I'm very confused by this statement. Who is to say that I or anyone needed to do anything to get their life together? Like there at some point must have been something wrong with it because pot was being smoked?

On the other comment though, that seems definitely like the mentality of someone taking psychology at Uni. All those people out there who smoke pot do it cause there is just something wrong with them, or at least something not right? (I call BS)

I am of course also assuming that you don't drink at all, or eat when you're not hungry etc etc etc.
Remember when you got torn to bits for not wording something to include all possible loopholes and so on and how annoyed that made you? You've just done the same with your post.

Info on Swiss drug policy:

BTW, the info in that link is not accurate anymore. They used to have those stores where you could refill your pillow etc. Also some other facts mentioned there are not true anymore. Unfortunately, I can only find info in German.

Aah you remind me of a prank call where an unsatisfied customer calls a hemp shop, complaining that he didn't get high from the pillow, so he set it on fire and inhaled everything, still felt no buzz but now has a burnt face!

Re: Growing cannabis

The only shop that was still open after the shut down was one in Conradstr a block or two past Zuri HB. It was still there 6 months ago but there were a couple of cops standing opposite so didn't attempt a sticky. I'm sure they'd sell you a "duffsac"

Re: Growing cannabis

No, actually I don't.

I do, however, feel strongly that a persons choice to do drugs is, exactly that, their choice.

Re: Growing cannabis

Lots of ladies who enjoy gardening up here in the mountains.1,000-1400 meters above sea level and retired farmers are growing cannabis plants.Zero THC levels, as these plants(seeds) are for feeding birds in the winter months, it is a funny sight huge 2 meter plants in the autumn to see, how it would excite the local constabulary in N:Z: but up here so nice it is used as a natural herb ,( soap, massage oil, nerve tea relaxant).
During the first world war our village had a Hemp paddock for rope, it would be great to see a comeback of this wonderful plant in a legal capacitiy as a natural alternative.. schame the vote went down the drain..

Re: Growing cannabis

Having studied (psychology) at uni in Amsterdam (where grass is freely available) it was considered normal to light up a blunt from time to time, especially at get-togethers and parties. I must say that all my friends who smoked were socially fit, getting good grades, and being well adjusted individuals in society. Some continued to smoke from time to time after their studies, others stopped. I myself smoked 3 to 4 joints a week during a certain period at uni, had no ill effects, and stopped completely many years ago. I am glad that I had the choice to smoke grass at the time, and think that others should decide for themselves if they would like to try. I still don't see what the big deal is, the Dutch law enforcement don't see any reasons to make the stuff illegal, and I tend to agree with them. And yes, at the time my parents knew I smoked the stuff, and no they did not reprimand me....

I totally agree. I smoked 2 years everyday when I was doing my undergraduate. It did not affect my studies nor health. After 2 years I gave up just because my new boy friend did not like it. I think in some ways smoking weeds helped me especially it helped my extreme shyness (social phobia) problem. As long as people do not jump to hard drugs after marijuana its perfectly ok!

Re: Growing cannabis

The bill failed, I think it was 63% that voted no. If they were not so busy chain smoking in restaurants and letting drunks **** in the streets they would see that this is a personal choice for adults and any form of prohibition is a failed policy but at the same time encouraging three of the most deadly drugs know to mankind, the two I mentioned previously and heroin. It strikes me odd to think that the U.S is actually more liberal on pot then Switzerland.
I will smoke a fatty in protest. It's for my cataracts

The bill failed because those who should have voted were too stoned to go. Actually I am not surprised, it's been up for vote before and hasn't got through. Switzerland has a strange morality when it comes to weed, on one hand, want to be tough, on the other, look away. There is a good chance that there will be another referendum, dealing with the fines given to people caught with pot - the idea is that although you'll be fined you will no longer have to appear before a judge and you will not get a write up in your Strafregister. In Bern I have yet to meet someone who has been fined for having pot. Here the view point is that if it look like personal consumption and not dealing, they'll let you off. Also there is a limit to how many plants you can have, apparently it is a maximum of 4. The police seriously do not have the time to chase everyone down who has a plant on the balcony or in their garden. The way I see it, it is back to status quo. Nothing has changed so the old rules or lack of, are still in place.

I know they don't persecute you here for having grass (unless your black)
But its the point that a plant is illegal and the right to personal choice. If I choose to smoke a joint I wish not that any gov't tells me that I am not allowed to do so. Everybody knows that grass is less harmful than alcohol, but Switzerland has to retain it's reputation for being square, boring, with out color bankers. (God forbid if someone tried to add color to this society) They are scared that people will think this country is full of free loving grass smoking hippies and all of the wealthy, mafia and other counterfeiters might be scared from hiding their money here. Other than that they don't have a problem if you only smoke it. God I love hipocracy.
