Marijuana vending machines in US


Eleven US states allow medical marijuana on doctors' orders Vending machines distributing the drug marijuana are to begin operating in the US state of California.


The machines can only be used by people who have been prescribed the drug for health reasons.


Patients will have to provide a prescription, and be fingerprinted and photographed before being allowed to use the facilities.

Is Alcohol Worse Than Ecstasy?


Horizon hits the drugs debate head-on as it examines the latest scientific evidence behind 20 of the country's most widely used drugs. A team of leading scientists has spent two years analysing the effects of these drugs and devising a scientifically rigorous, but controversial, new ranking for them. From alcohol to ecstasy, tobacco to LSD this programme looks at the science behind the headlines and asks what is Britain's most dangerous drug? Contains graphic scenes of drug use.


This sounds like it will show the scientific truth instead of all the rubbish that is spouted by people which has no basis in reality or science. i will be watching. Bet Tobbaco and Alchohol are at the very top lot of being the worst drugs for you.

One quote our friendly neighbourhood mod might not like is "the vast majority of heroin users will not be able to use the drug safely".

I assume you're referring to me. I have no argument with that statement; it is probably true. Do you have a point?

So what came in 1st, 2nd, 3d, etc, after heroin and where did tobacco come in? Unfortunately I can't get Horizon here.


Tobacco was 9th i think. Heroin was first, cant mind the others order. It was good to see science being used instead of hysteria and myths to identify the dangers of each drug. just wish the government would look at reason instead of hersey.

The scientists on the programme said that the high you got from heroin was the equivalent to having an orgasm.

Ah, but Mark Renton from Trainspotting famously described taking heroin thus:


Take the best orgasm you've ever had... multiply it by a thousand, and you're still nowhere near it.


Who are you going to believe, a scientist from off the telly, or a fictional junkie ? :)
