Legalizing of cannabis in Greece

This article gives an overview of the current situation regarding cannabis use in Greece. Recently, legislation on legalizing /depenalizing of soft drugs was approved by the council of ministers and it has already become law. The article discusses certain negative aspects of the government’s legislation that should be amended. In view of the existing miserable economic situation in Greece it should perhaps be totally scrapped. Good points of the legislation are also discussed.

I think its a good thing in light of the fact that some cancer patients could get relief from it. I posted a link further back regarding this issue. In Sweden it is legal for medicinal use.

Tpebop, I dont think in the light of things that you are in any position to query what I post on here, from your profile I see since 2008 you have managed to contribute only 89 posts that makes an average of 22.25% a year with just 4 thanks and you have never thanked anyone at all, So it would be in my opinion that if this site was left to the likes of you it would of closed down in the first year, or even sooner.
If you dont like what I paste and copy then don't read it, or better still don't even look at GIH.
And yes I do have loads to do but when I have finished I do troll as you put it to find news that people on here might be interested in.
Mmmm anyone else want to have a moan :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Why on earth would you say that? It's plain nasty.

Anyway I for one found it interesting news, if only for the fact that we throw out accumulated parrot-poo and general birdcage debris around the trees and sometimes find "mary-jane" plants popping up. Nice to know that we can resort to "personal use" if a hyper-vigilant neighbour ("up" Panayiotis most likely candidate) spots a rogue plant.

Is that the same sort of thing as civet coffee, but a bit less gross and with a better buzz?

I was assuming the "mary jane" seeds hadn't actually passed through the bird, but now I'm not sure :)

Why are you here, anyway, tpebop? We don't need your type of nastiness.
I don't have time to peruse the papers so I don't mind Poppy's posts at all. If the title doesn't interest me, I don't read it, but it's nice to have the option. Simple as that.
Everything's always okay, in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.

Well...that certainly brought everyone back out of the woodwork :D Quite right poppy, if no one posts and keeps things moving along, this helpful site will close.
