This is the perfect thread for the Bob Marley avatar.
I think that pharmaceutical companies are against legalizing marijuana as they would lose sales on their painkillers.. I see its prescription being more prevalent in the near future, but I don't think it would mean more business for pharmacies as it would designated to dispensaries (definitely more tax revenue for the government though)
This country is way too prude for this to happen.
Does anyone know if pharmacy schools would care if a student went to Amsterdam over the summer? Not really breaking the law to smoke marijuana over there.
LOL! Bob Marley might like marijuana, but he wanted to send a message to the world that we should all think outside of the box (For example: "emancipate yourself from mental slavery" in Redemption Song). I wish the government thinks like him. Our world would be more peaceful and there would be no more cartels and shady drug dealers. Which would lower the violence that are happening in our streets nowadays. While lowering the violence in our streets, I would also agree that our tax revenue would boost up and we would finish the debt we had with Iraq in a couple years.
Yes, I agree that this country is very prude about that kind of stuff. Did you guys hear about swiss legalizing heroin for some kind of program for addicts?
LOL, how would the pharmacy school know if you went to Amsterdam? Just don't tell the school! My brother went to study abroad in the Netherlands and had a great time.
The leaders of this country have to get that stick out of their ass and start realizing there are worse things than people getting high.
If you're gonna ban marijuana, you should ban alcohol too.
Like Chris Rock said, the government doesn't hate drugs. They want you to get hooked on THEIR drugs. The more likely reason why marijuana is banned is because the best stuff isn't made in the US.
