I was watching the UK documentary "Cannabis: What's the Harm?" and it was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. There was a cannabis rehabilitation program and everyone swore they were physically addicted to it. One girl said she got the shakes and everything. It's such bullshit. If you think you're addicted, then your psychological addiction could easily manifest as a physical one. Another person said they had major anxiety attacks if they didn't smoke. Well do you think that maybe you could have an anxiety disorder that was treatable with marijuana? The leader of the program says she counsels a woman that has been smoking for 20 years and is too paranoid to leave her house. This woman sounds like one of those people that just shouldn't smoke. It's not for everyone. There was also this mother of a 14 year old smoker and she said, "It's so depressing to see someone try to drown out the negative thoughts and do so much damage to their body." There are two things wrong with that statement... we all know already...

They also talk about how children are trafficked to work on cannabis farms created by Vietnamese gangs. Well that wouldn't be a problem if it was decriminalized... The illegal status of marijuana is what creates gang crime.

What really bothers me is that documentaries like this don't even try to show the other side.

Yeah all documentaries always seems to be one sided and so closed minded. Saw some old 50-70's commercials about marijuana, and you wouldn't believe some of the LIES they put in there!
