    Congratulations, hooray, let the parades run through the streets in jubilation! Realistically, okay, good for them I suppose.

    That damn song is stuck in my head now, thank you.

    Good news. Hoping Ireland follows suit next year, but the old fogey politicians here still buy into the propaganda and won't even hear the arguments for it.

    Decriminalisation =/= Legalisation.

    I don't really put much stock in that argument, but if so, good. Although you don't have to smoke it, vaporising is better. Or you could eat it, but when it passes through your liver another substance is formed that's 4-5 times stronger than the regular THC.

    Congratulations! I think legalising marijuana is one of the better ideas to solve the problem. In Uruguay, it'll be legal to grow, sell and consume marijuana, but I suppose you won't be able to just grow that shit in your backyard, so that should be good. And as far as I'm concerned only registered people over 18 will be allowed to buy it. To be precise, no more than 40 grams per month, so they won't just walk up in a store and buy shit for 30 people. I think it won't be as free as alcohol or cigarettes, but you have to start somewhere. In time they'll see what's working and what's not and they'll adjust the law accordingly.
