I am high right now in Washington
My eyes hurt from rolling them. Information of any kind adds to knowledge. Censorship is just wrong.
I have a dream.
how can being homosexual be an offence, neither is smoking pot
I live in Russia, smoking weed is a serious offence. It's like being homosexual or doing heroin.
(sorry, take the spaces out of that link first in notepad or whatever you use.)
Medvedev seems like a decent guy compared to many other people in power, surely he thinks this idea is insane and might help find a decent solution? Or maybe he can't do anything about it? Stop the whole of the Russian population from learning on wikipedia (even though the site has a lot of bias and issues in itself, and I get that, honestly.) because it has a page on weed = pure insanity.
T his is why I dislike governments : they just decide almost everything without letting the people vote on it. It shouldn't be this way. People's voting should run governments, not a few people who think they know best.
Oh wow, that's so absolutely backwards that it's unreal. I often have hope that Russia is a lot more forward thinking than most other countries, but things like this really don't help at all. For a start smoking weed actually chills a lot of people out instead of making them aggro with alcohol (and that's why I think most governments don't like it. They'd rather see their populations aggro than calming down and seeing the bigger picture.) But mainly : all the people in Russia can't learn from wikipedia because there's a page on weed? Seriously. Like I said : absolutely backwards.
Once again, hypocrisy from the RT community. If the US did the same thing, there'd be an uproar.
no such thing as a recreation drug, and side effect of cannabis use us memory loss
Wikipedia is useless lies anyway about everything
prove its dangerous to children otherwise its just more propaganda from a cop.
Cannabis used for thousands of years in Russia and is one of foundation plants of Chinese culture
