Just for reference sake - how many joints is 10 grams?
Trying to get a sense of "how much" is enough to be considered trouble.

We had evidence weed at the meeting and it was a decent amount, about 10 cigarette size joints worth, but will get exact figures and back to you. We began the exercise at 6 grams and now up to 10 after looking at what other countries have done, some as little as 5 grams, others as high as 25 grams.

Did you properly dispose of the evidence after the exercise?

7 grams is a quarter ounce. 7 grams is also what a Canadian dollar coin weighs so you can calibrate your spring scale. I'm assuming the Belize dollar is also 7 grams as they are almost identical.

If Belize takes this very important and very positive step, there will be a flood of we 'Baby Boomers' retiring there, at this point I'm considering Uruguay, but would much perfer Belize if they allow the best medicine for so many illnesses, we are fun, friendly, & harmless people who only seek 'freedom', we will bring many good things and people with us...come on Belize, screw the US...do it your way ;-)

Baby boomers are already flooding the place as their nests empty out and they are ready for a new lifestyle.

Regardless of decriminalization folks that want to smoke dope will continue to do so. As with all other drugs, it won't get stamped out and be unavailable.

It is tough to say screw the US- especially if there a load of US refugees lining up to come down here. With every immigrant we see changes in how our culture views things and how our new residents impose their belief system and infuse it with ours.

Please be sure to send your point of view to the email address - the committee is seeking input.

but, all people seek acceptance, a lifetime of being a criminal while hurting no one, stealing nothing, and promoting peace and love...come on its time for the world to open its eyes to 'truth' and not the lies of the past, I celebrate your freedom...can't you do the same for me?

The initiative is not to spur tourism or real estate, but simply to remove the criminal penalty for possesion of 10 grams or less so the Belizean offender does not have a criminal record and further impede employment, education opportunities and travel aboard.

Come on - peace and love do not equate to marijuana. Dope is dope - you smoke it to get high. Not saying it's wrong, but please don't argue that it is morally superior to be stoned.
Intoxication is not about uplifting one's social ethics, it's about entertainment.

Interesting article in online NYTimes today on this subject - I am unable to effectively post the address, sorry. The article is about Uruguay's proposals and the various views, effects, etc. It's very interesting.
If somebody can find and post the link or text it might be a useful bit of input to this discussion.
