The BBC were running a piece on the government's plan to upgrade cannabis to a Grade B drug again and during this piece the reporter made a very interesting (to me) comment. They said - and this is from memory .......
Many people have being using cannabis for years without any ill effect.
A couple of points about this.
First off the claim above is anecdotal and loaded. How does the BBC know many people have being using cannabis for years and how do they know they have not had any ill effects? Because they said so? Who did they ask? BBC employees probably.
Secondly, when was the last time you heard the above caveat used in relation to cigarettes or alcohol.
Sometimes it takes just the slightest thing to open your eyes to the truth - and the truth is that the supposedly balanced and non-judgemental BBC is very judgemental and very biased towards the liberal left agenda.
On the same piece the BBC showed an interview with a cannabis user - sitting on a sofa covered in images of marijuana and wearing a shirt smothered in the same design. Not much bias there then. This chap then went on to say that upgrading cannabis to Grade B would just drive its use "underground"!
No shit Sherlock! Whether it's a Grade B or Grade C drug its use is still prohibited. Stick that in your bong and smoke it pal!
The same guy came up with the usual defence of "I'm not doing anyone any harm". Well, yeah - actually you are mate, 'cos those cannabis plants don't harvest themselves. Nooooo - lots of little slave kids are out there doing it for you and people are being murdered to bring it to you - but you're not doing anyone any harm are you?
Yes you are, you moron.
