    No, you have a monarch in disguise of a DEMOCRATIC government.
     
  3.  
    Guess ill be moving to the US when im older then
     
  4. Or Holland, or Switzerland. 
     
  5. You know, Europe is beautiful and in my opinion better than the US. So why go to a place where you'll have a hard time going to when you're a part of the EEA / EU and you can move anywhere in Europe easily? 
     
  6.  
    Is it fully legal in Switzerland?
     
  7. Legal to grow and possess for personal use (Up to 4-6 plants per person in a house.)
    Meaning if you have 5 roommates, it's 4-6 plants per person. (20-30 plants in total)
     
    Illegal to sell though.
     
  8. To get cannabis legal in  the UK, or anywhere else, you have to educate people! Once the medical facts about cannabis become known, legalization becomes a "no-brainer"!  :smoke:
     
    In the UK, there is a big do-to about "skunk" causing schizophrenia. The medical facts just don't agree with that! (From Granny Storm Crow's List)

    Now gathering all of that just took a minute or two, using my List.  All of the old myths are covered- amotivational syndrome, lung cancer, etc. If you would like a copy, check out the bottom of my sig and send me an email. Or if you are on an app that doesn't show sigs, just PM me your email!  The July 2013 List is over 1000 pages of links like those above, on just about everything related to cannabis.  and everyone who gets a copy, will automatically get a copy of the new January 2014 List that comes in at 1,420 pages of links! :yay:
     
    Get my copy of my List and you can use it to make meaningful comments in the news. Here's one I did just a couple days ago-
     
    Old Fog-  pot don't heal anything, relieve pain most likely, therefore give it to those that have short time
     
    Me, as "Storm" - Old Fog, run a search for "Granny Storm Crow's List"! I have the proof you want! Here's a start on what cannabis can do- besides get you pleasantly high! “Marijuana May Slow Alzheimer's” (WebMD- read this, if nothing else!), “Pot compound seen as tool against cancer” (SFGate) , “An ultra-low dose of tetrahydrocannabinol provides cardioprotection” (PubMed), “Smoked Cannabis Reduces Some Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis” (UCSD), “Marijuana Compound May Help Stop Diabetic Retinopathy” (ScienceDaily), “Marijuana may be Helpful in Lowering Blood Pressure” (BioMedicine) and “Cannabis for Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease treatment” (NewsMedicalNet). Once the medical facts about cannabis become known, the need for full legalization becomes obvious!
     
    Oddly enough, "Old Fog" had nothing to say after that!     :laughing:
     
    Your doctor should also be a target of your activism! Most doctors don't know anything about cannabis aside from the government line of "Pot is bad. M'kay?"  In a survey of Canadian doctors a while back, a clear majority admitted that what they knew about cannabis came from their patients!  :eek:
     
    In the US, the post office will deliver mail without a return address, or you can just fake one if your postal service isn't as lax. Just print up some abstracts- they are usually 1 page or less, and send them off! I strongly recommend these as possible abstracts to send!

    You may not understand what those are all about, but your doctor will, and they will totally rock his view of cannabis! :eek:
     
     
    Hope that helps!

  10. The US has to legalize it first, we are the guys that mandated the international drug laws to which the UK and UN have been happy to comply with, even now the UN is calling out the US for going against the drug laws.
