> WILSON, I have heard so many talk about the sam ething... stopping because of drug tests. I don't always understand the good of drug tests. I have heard so so so many people say that cannabis is improving their life without getting in the way of daily functioning at all. I have heard of people who has used it as the only workable solution for many diseases, including epilepsy, migraine and bipolarity! It is HORRYFYING that weed is treated the same way as for example amphetamine, when it is such a help for so many.
> I also find it hard to believe how professionals can be so negative to using cannabis as medication, when they DO use benzodiazepines, morphine and amphetamine. All of those have a lot higher chance of abuse than weed has, and a lot more devastating result if abused.
> Though, who am I to complain, living in the Netherlands, less than an hour away from Amsterdam :-)
> I would like to say though, you don't have to go to the Netherlands just to open a coffeeshop, they have many other professions here too :D I went here from Norway to work as a psychologist (and no, I don't realaly speak good Dutch), and it's plenty of americans working ere in different professions that don't speak Dutch. I was actually tipped by someone in Den Haag that i should work as a psychologist for all the americans working in Den Haag, since they are more confident going to psychologists than europeans (she knew what she was talking about, having been married to one of those americans for 8 years, hehe). I couldn't count on my fingers, nor if I also include my toes, how many foreigners I have met that has moved here because here they can smoke here without being paranoid about police. And for me, none of them seemed to have any problems in their life because of their smoking.
> To finish off, I moved here because of a man, and not because of the weed :-)
