By no means smoked a joint, by no means smoked a ciggy, by no means smoked a cigar or a pipe, however I’ve by no means understood the purpose that hashish ought to be handled any in another way from tobacco. Each substances have an effect on your physique in the long run.
Together with visitors air pollution, constructing materials waste and pure air pollution as properly, we’re ingesting numerous numbers of carcinogens each day!
Personally I say legalise hashish for private use ASAP. An excellent good friend of mine in his 70s (sadly handed away) was riddled with arthritis and was in fixed ache and the one reduction he ever received was to smoke hashish which his spouse (in her 60s) needed to go to purchase off road corners!
Legalisation of this plant could go some approach to decreasing the worth of the drug and assist a few of these unlucky folks, who, by way of no fault of their very own, are struggling each single minute of the day with acute ache and struggling. – Terry Flanagan
Legalisation in Canada a few years in the past was largely a non-issue. Within the college neighbourhood of Toronto the place I had been residing, one noticed just a few extra folks within the streets smoking hashish purchased on the new authorities retailer than seen earlier than legalisation. There doesn’t appear to have been a giant improve in consumption. Certainly, for some folks the joys of illegality appears to have beforehand been a part of the attraction. – Keith Sharp
The onerous actuality just isn’t the decriminalisation of this drug however prime minister Robert Abela’s panic of shedding votes in 2022, of the intellectually smart and never as silly as one makes them out to be youths!
Grams or no grams, the haste being proven by Abela is an indication his scope is politically selective reasonably socially goal. I augur that in his haste, he ascertains the committee discussing this fast-tracked legislation contains youths from all spheres of our native society.
If the incumbent will get it incorrect, there isn’t any simple ‘again monitoring’. – Joe Mifsud
A transfer was inevitable to regain recognition notably among the many youthful generations, after the mounds of corruption filth being unearthed. There are execs and cons in regards to the proposal, as at all times. Paving the best way to legalise hashish for leisure use is a meacertain being thought of in lots of nations, and concessions shall be price goldmines. Hope it’s not a sequel of Muscat’s roadmap adopted by Robert Abela. – A. Mifsud
Is that this the long run we plan for our children? A former prime minister dreamt of Malta turning into ‘Switzerland within the Mediterranean’. Is Robert Abela now planning a ‘Holland within the Mediterranean’? Could God assist us. However then, so long as cash is generated, who cares! – Joseph Croker
A really progressive and optimistic approach to strengthen the character of our youths! Duped, they’re extra receptive to manipulation. Additionally they clap extra fervently. – Paul Pulis

Hashish customers shall be allowed to develop their very own crops at residence and legally carry as much as seven grams of the drug for private use, below a proposed reform unveiled by the federal government on Tuesday.
And what if the crops yield greater than the authorized quantity? Can it’s legally bought to those that would make use of seven grams however don’t have any crops at their residence?
How is the federal government going to guard others, particularly youngsters, who could also be inspired to make use of the excess?
I say this as a result of the Labour Social gathering is at all times boasting of surpluses, and certain as tax there shall be a whole lot of surplus of this drug as crops will run wild uncontrolled. – Richard Curmi
That is simply deviation a tactic. Let’s talk about this subject after the final election in just a few months’ time, or at greatest embrace the difficulty within the events’ political manifesto. – E. Abela
