People who are pro-legalization desperately want to believe that the marijuana is not a causal factor in all this, that it's just a trend that sick people like to smoke or at worst exacerbate their problems or cause "latent" illnesses to emerge. Exacerbation of such problems would be a very negative effect and so should anyways be taken into account when considering legalization.

If you want a scientific source, you could take a look at this recent paper :



Link : Cannabis use and risk of psychotic or affective mental health outcomes: a systematic review : The Lancet
Hey, speaking of The Lancet, have any of you people seen the new drug classification proposal based on level of danger that was published in it a few years back? Here's a chart from it:



Notice where alcohol is relative to cannabis, LSD, ecstasy, etc.

Here's the BBC article about it.

What is Khat?


also, I don't understand how benzo's aren't higher than heroin. You can't die from opiate withdrawal

i had to read about the nut...no Khat is much more powerful....think of it more like coke (but less euphoric) or eating handful of no-doze....the thing about khat is that it is an alkaline and really causes almost no physical damage....but obviously any type of 'speed' will eventually cause mental issues

what are your reasons on why it should be legalised other than it's "fun" and "awesome"? Is that a reasonable argument?

It's Awesome? This would not hold up in an argument for it to be legalized. And why do you have to go the next three years without it, legal or illegal you can get it no matter what.
