    Cannabis oil, should it be available on prescription?

    I'm not suggesting that the sole reason for legalising it is because its easily available anyway. It's a culmination of reasons, including that. And including that it's a relatively harmless drug. The benefits of legalising it far outweigh the negatives, as has been demonstrated in the US and will be demonstrated in Canada now they've decided to legalise cannabis use for both medical and social use.

    Alcohol is far, far more destructive than cannabis, which is generally fairly harmless compared with most other drugs including alcohol. Especially alcohol. Given the vast availability and ease of access of cannabis, keeping it illegal is nonsensical, a tax source the government is missing out on and a massive waste of police resources fighting an unwinnable war against criminals. It is absolutely nonsense to continue to keep it illegal.

    And some young and old lives are ruined by alcoholism or drink driving or many other illnesses directly related to alcohol. Yet we continue to allow people to consume alcohol.
  4. Wondered if the green fingered out there had any thoughts on using canal water to water my plants (mostly herbs plus some tomato plants). In going through tap water like it's going out of fashion at the moment

    Alcohol may well not cause schizophrenia in young (or old) people but to say it doesn't cause devastating mental illness is a ridiculous claim. It's one of the worst drugs out there! Of course I indulge in alcohol intake but I do so knowing the risks. "The oldest evidence of cannabis in Britain was from some seeds found in a well in York;[1] seeds found at Micklegate were associated with a 10th-century Viking settlement." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_in_the_United_Kingdom

    I'm interested in when cannabis became illegal in the UK, given that people have been using it for thousands of years, certainly longer than alcohol has been discovered. The effects of alcohol on the rest of us has surely more of an impact than that the current impact cannabis has on the population.

    Of which the UK is one of the biggest providers of.
  8. I didn't know that song, I shall have to have a listen! I worked in Sophia Antipolis for about a year. Just listened to it now. Of course I know that song. For some reason I thought it was someone else (Ralph McTell or Cat Stevens).
  9. Antibes, eh? While since I've heard that name. I lived in Juan Les Pins for a while.

    Actually I do! I'm not sure if I'd treat my tomato plants with any of my "compost" though

    Weekend's activities

    Been a busy weekend! I have finally finished my bathroom refit tiling and even managed to have a shower in my new shower. And got a new (to me) fridge. Sounds run of the mill but it's been 2 months since my fridge last worked properly (was using the freezer section which was vaguely cold) and it's been 5 weeks without a working shower. First world problems and all that but it's nice to have both those things in a working state. Sometimes you wonder if all this is worth living on boat for but then you soon realise that these two things could occur on land anyway, although a replacement fridge may be easier to acquire. But when things are good on the water, they're really good. And I got to meet a fellow boater from this forum when getting my new fridge. Oh and my tomato plants are beginning to fruit! 👍

    Christopher Chope, what an idiot...

    Well said. Back in my day they'd have torn out our eyes and beat us to death with a broken bottle. These days, they send them on a six month holiday to the Bahamas followed by a trip to Alton Towers.

    Just read that too. I vaguely suspected it was his reasoning, doesn't get away from the fact he's an old fossil.

    Can we have a new rule

    I'm definitely doing this wrong. A few bits of wood but I'm refitting the bathroom. I'll be thrown out of the club if this gets out.

    Can we have a new rule

    I'm doing it wrong then. I've moved three times in three weeks and for 15 miles and I work a full time job and I'm a ccer and I'm a "London boater". Apparently letting the side down.
