I’ve just found out that way back in 2013 we changed the law here in Switzerland with regards to marijuana usage and carrying. If you have anything up to 10g in weight on your person, you will are let off with a fine of CHF100. I’m absolutely appalled. I’d have had words with the Swiss law makers that allowed this to come to pass had I known before. How can this be the case. I’m not really sure what 10g looks like, or how long it would take to smoke it, but to my mind 10g of marijuana is 10g too much of the stuff. I mean don’t they know that it is what is called a ‘gateway drug’. There are probably thousands of kids out there, or even adults, that started off using marijuana for fun and then moved onto harder more addictive substances like cocaine or even prescription drugs. I mean, it’s surely like we are condoning the use of the substance by allowing even a small amount to be acceptable isn’t it?
Not to mention the psychological disorders that can be triggered by the stuff. I myself know of one friends daughter, who, years after it was too late, was discovered to have triggered a psychological disorder due to abusing the drug, day after day, year after year. The Swiss word for regret is ‘drug addict’ in my book. But anyway, if there is any chance of being able to repeal this law, I’m all in favour of it and will do anything and all things I can in order to get the law changed. You have my word for it! And that, Switzerland, is my word of the day!
