Eventually it will be legalized in most other parts of the world including Cyprus. I don't think there is any reason for Cyprus to be one of the first countries to legalize it. The last thing we want is for Cyprus to become attractive to drug addicts. Those are not exactly the kind of tourists we need... if we are so desperate for money then we might as well legalize cocaine to attract high class tourists ... we don't need the pot smoking hippies ;)


Hippies?... Hello! This is almost year 2013 my friend! Everyone does pot around here, rich or poor.
A way of life I might say. Cyprus need all kinds of tourists, revenue is revenue, including the backpacked ones.
Given the Cypriot financial mess, every Euro counts.


I actually agree with Sotos. Holland has banned tourist related sales for this very reason. Having said that, a mature country should be able to deal with legal entheogens, after all they were one of the cornerstones of the Eleusinian Mysteries. As I said, I am against their use for merely recreation. Even spiritually, I have come to view them as a bit of a short-cut. Dedicated meditation can achieve the same results.


Amsterdam is still in the program. Here in Toronto, tourism is a huge issue. Pot would be an attraction like no other. Canadians are not stupid. They see the potential. Done the right way would eliminate street vendors, eliminate bad quality weed, eliminate related crime etc. If Canada implements pot legalization would Cyprus follow? Who knows. One thing is for sure. Cyprus never took the initiative... never!

What business are you talking about?
I am in the renewable energy business and don't smoke marijuana.

But I am not blind. There are benefits in legalizing pot. Casinos too!
Encouraging Qatar and Chinese business too! The list is endless.

In general, Cyprus is sterilizing itself from every business opportunity. Why?

Gambling, drugs and prostitution? No thanks.

Really Georgios? I am 24 did smoke weed for almost a year everyday. Thank god I stopped that shitty drug that PROVIDED me absolutely NOTHING. Why do you need such a thing to make you feel better? Get up on your ass be productive and then look what you created, that will make you smile! Not a drug that clouds your way of thinking and makes you do nothing for the whole day cause you are too stoned to even remember what needs to be done in this world.

As others said drugs, gambling and prostitution NO THANKS!

indeed in the free areas, yes , but Gambling is apparently legal in the North,. The debate however is about chaging the law on Drugs.

Anyone who needs stimulants to have a good time just wasn’t meant to be having a good time! :lol:


Stimulants... including what? Viagra, porn magazines, cigarettes, boose, coffee, beer?
I guess you never used any of the above then, have you GR? Unless you consider going to church every Sunday "a good time".

I think you know which kind of stimulants I was talking about… no need to cloud the issue to soften your blow! :lol:

There is nothing legal in the "North" that is not decreed so by the RoC.
