Nothing, unfortunately.
It's very hard to help people who don't realise they have a problem.
Maybe you could try to alert his attention to the changes in his behaviour when he's been smoking and hope that, one day, he agrees with you.
I have friends who smoke too much weed too and I wish I knew how to help them!xxx

Cas_Andy, if you provide some more information on the problem you friend is experiencing then maybe you might get a few more replies as people will find it easier to answer.

the thing is most people wont stop because it isnt actually as dangerous as smoking cigarettes and it isnt illegal yet u are allowd enough on your person for 2 joints .... as long as its 'safe' no1 will stop my friends smoke 2 much weed and i used to but havent touched the stuff for almost a year as i want to be in the police and am hoping to join next year... u need 2 explain that altho it is not illegal and doesnt do that much damage it isnt well looked upon .. you say hes poor.... he needs a well paid job and employers know if you smoke 2 much as it has simular side effects as smoking....yellow teeth and fingers only worse. unfourtunately until police crack down on it theres nothng you can do let him get on with it ...ull find its mostly young ppl that do it ....we all grow up in the end

puddin_pot I don't think it is something that will be cracked down on, but rather going the opposite way.

Enigma is right. I'm afraid it's officially legal to smoke pot whenever and where ever you want in Canada...and you're allowed to have 24 grams (milligrams?) in your possesion at a time...sad world...

Really Llisa??? I don't think it's legal here, pretty sure it's still illegal. Let's hope it stays that way.

It it still illegal here. It is just a small amount on your person gets a warning thats all instead of being nicked.

With all the other serious crimes that need addressing there is a very relaxed approach to the consumption of cannabis.

You don't think that all that goes on behind the scenes with drug dealings are serious crimes?

but weed cant really cost ppl their life in any way its not that expensive so its not like they r selling or doing whatever they have to 2 get it and it doesnt cause that much harm hence the relaxed approach to it.

Drugs in general, however, do. Besides, what about health affects? But anyways, this is off topic and the real problem is being forgotten here.
