The Netherlands have nothing but positive examples for allowing cannabis usage, the only reason the laws are being restricted is due to ignorant segments of the population and the outcome will be increased violence and hard drug usage. The most telling experiences and example are of North America's experiment with cannabis prohibition and for that the evidence is overwhelming: cannabis prohibition is a deadly nightmare for all involved except for those who profit off the devil law. A sane reason to continue cannabis prohibition simply doesn't exist. Stan White Dillon, Colorado - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
