Re: Marihuana: Legal/Illegal Couple of things: 1) Hashish and straight Marijuana are two VERY different things. Hashish is a super-concentrated extract. A powerful psychoactive. It produces (so i have heard) incredible psychedelic trips. Very potent. 2) Legislation is by and large only a method of taxation. The government, once a substance is regulated, can make money off of it. Simple as that. You can't legislate pot out of existance, and in fact by criminalizing it you put a lot of good people in jail and open up the door for drug cartels with ties to terrorism and communism in Latin America to fill the void left by local growers. at the end of the day nobody has the right to tell you that you cannot do something. Each person is their own sovereign. Hail to the King!
