I find it somewhat hilarious that some of the most rabid guns-with-no-restrictions people are also the most rabid about things like this. Personally, I find it unconscionable that people with chronic illnesses like MS are denied a drug that can help them. MJ is certainly far less harmful than many of the pain medications that don't even help as much. I lived in the Netherlands for a while. The attitude of most of the Dutch people I knew and lived with (college students!) was "eh, been there, done that." maybe once in a while, someone would would have a joint, but, mostly the coffee shops in A'dam, and Enschede were just filled with tourists (Americans and Germans mostly). I actually never have tried pot. Maybe I would have had the opportunity presented, but it was just not that big a deal to anybody. Probably because they were too busy drinking beer.
