Fair enough Kona, I completely agree. I hate the govenment legislating for my good. It's hypocritical, patronising and offensive. It's particularly patronising when you hear how the CIA controls the flow of stuff from Afganistan.
Binners if you want to grow your own and do what you want with it then I'm not your keeper and I'll support your right to do it legally whether i'd do it myself or not. It might makes you a more mellow, less troublesome member of society depending on what you're using. If that is the context of your remark then i'm sorry i misinterpreted. It's none of my business. Diffenert story if you are making / using ice and attacing nurses when you get brought into the local A&E. I live in a semi rural area prone to bush fire. A couple of months ago I nearly lost my house to a fire started when a drug lab blew up 2 km up the road.
My point is that you can't divorce the use of drugs sourced via organised crime from the effects of organised crime for the rest of us. I suspect most governments are at some level corrupt and involved in that organised crime.
