The point is even IF there's a good rehab service and good support (which is fairly good), people always make it difficult to do. And this guy just didn't care. He's been in prison many times for assaults and harassment, he just doesn't care. Thankfully the police got him an ASBO (Anti-social behavioural order) so he's banned from entering my workplace's street now.

I'm not so much of an active VG player for one and second, if people want to smoke it, fine, but I don't want it legalized just so people can get high. For medical use, sure however. And I know some people just try it once and not all people are bad, but still, from everything I know and have heard/seen, it's left me very negative about it.

Edit: Also, I don't hate the people who smoke it, but rather the fact they do it, if that makes sense. I don't like my friends going on a pub-night out and drinking so much crap, doesn't make me hate them but I don't have to like it.
