No hope for dope

08 January 2013, 10:31

I saw the recent article about the South African cannabis movement and could not fit my comment in the space provided, so here goes.

I left SA for the UK as there was little to no future for me in a country that was spiraling out of control. The dagga smokers in SA show how backward the country has continued to go. With there being so many existing issues I cannot for the life me why another issue should be created by legalizing dagga.

The stuff is bad for you finish and klaar. It makes people crazy, lazy and criminals. It leads people to using hard drugs and makes people violent. I’ve seen for myself how crazy people can go on the stuff.

The UK has seen its own issues regarding skunk weed. The stuff is so dangerous because it is 10x stronger than anything we’ve seen before and the youth of the country are turning into hooded hooligans from a single puff of skunk. I for one am glad that I no longer live in a country where stupid things like dagga legalization are taken seriously.

Legalize dagga and you will see the country turn into a bunch of lay-a-bouts who do nothing but get high and steal to continue getting high. If you see any sense in legalizing dagga, you are clearly so brain damaged from dagga use that you could see sense in anything.

Those who smoke dagga or support its legalization should have their right to vote taken away as they cannot be trusted to make safe decisions about themselves let alone be trusted with a decision that affects the futures of others.

So go ahead smoke all the dagga you like but don’t be surprised when you are too dumb or lazy to outwit the cops who will catch you.

Dagga is illegal and the law regarding cannabis should be respected whether you like it or not.
