So heres my proposition......

Legalize the growing of pot for personal use, but still maintain that buying/selling it is illegal (US obviously). That way, those that constantly get in trouble for a dime bag can grow in peace and not get involved with crime.

The risk of selling would also stay the same for those that try to make money can still be arrested.

Idk im stoned, let me hear the audience....

Yer, this works.

All-out legalisation of all drugs is deffinatly better though.

It's not hard to find solutions to today's problems because the world is so fucked - all done on purpose i might add, so the people who run the show can get richer and richer

I do not support this idea. Getting high legally should not be predicated on one's ability to grow cannabis. Cannabis production simply is not practical for everybody, even if it is legal.

I do believe that any legalization of cannabis should include the right to grow your own, however there is one very difficult aspect of this to address in my opinion. As desirable as having cannabis plants in the flower beds out front may be, outdoor plants could be exceedingly difficult to keep secure. In the face of legalization/regulation I would not be comfortable with a blanket ban of outdoor grows, nor overly strict/harsh regulations in regard to outdoor growing, but a flat out free for all on growing cannabis outdoors is untenable. I think some kind of regulations as to where cannabis can be grown outdoors is necessary. As for indoor growing, I think that should be largely unregulated. Adults should be free to buy/sell/trade cannabis and cannabis products without a business license or other sort of license. You don't need a license to share some of your vegetable garden harvest with friends and family, cannabis should be the same.

Spain has a similar policy,

From Wikipedia:

In Spain the possession and use of cannabis in public places is classed as a misdemeanour under public health laws and is punishable by fines and confiscation. Trafficking is a criminal offence.

However, the right to consume marijuana and grow plants for personal consumption in one's private property is protected under the Spanish constitution. In practice one can still be denounced for doing so by neighbours or ill-wishers, and the burden is then effectively on the user or grower to prove that the material is for personal use only.

In recent years a number of members' associations have been established throughout the country in an attempt to extend the boundary of the Spanish citizen's constitutional rights. In an association cannabis is grown and shared among the members. The association may not promote or be seen to encourage the use of cannabis and it must be a closed group for existing adult consumers only, distributing only small amounts regularly to each member (typically 10 grams per week) so as to prevent the possibility of trafficking. As well as a membership fee, members must pay for what they consume and prices may not be much different than on the black market.

Where the associations have come under legal challenge they have been able to surmount this, and in at least one case have secured the return of several kilos of confiscated plants. The umbrella group for cannabis associations in Spain is the Federación de Asociaciones Cannábicas: http://www.fac.cc/ and Politic Group:RCN-NOK Representacion Cannabica de Navarra: http://www.rcnavarra.org/

The problem with this is it does not address the illegal drug market, it does not regulate and monitor their quality.  It does nothing to deter criminal enterprise. It's a nice step but does nothing to solve the problems on an illegal drug market.

I wonder what percentage of the population think that all drugs should be legal.  It's weird cause sometimes I will talk with people who are like minded about pot but when we talk about other drugs they'll disagree about all drugs being illegal.  I've never been a drug advocate, but a human rights advocate.

Well if you examine what should be the purpose of drug policy, to reduce harm and use, then legalization, education and rehabilitation is the best route at reducing harm.  That's not even taking into account the freedom argument for drug legalization.
