It`s the PEOPLE who are dangerous.
I don`t know why you`re arguing that it is in the first place, do remember that you`ve never even tried it in the first place.
Yes, there is a slight psychological addiction that I`m sure is more intense for some than for others. There are times when I haven`t done it for a while when I think "Hm, I`d really like to be high right now" but its as simple as knowing that you can`t or shouldn`t and you get over it pretty easily. It`s about as bad as a craving for a kind of food. Maybe even less so.
"Maybe there are a few people here that are smart."so your only smart if you do drugs? or if you condone drugs? the way i see drugs is a way toavoid problems in your life for a short while. or to feel good for a short while. but it also affects how you mind and body work, and there is no need. that is also why Christianity is a good thing. not only do you live eternally in heaven after you die on earth, but you also can find more productive and righteous ways to entertain yourself.
Maybe there are a few people here that are smart. The way I feel about all drugs, including alcohol, is that before you do something, you should have the knowledge on how it affects your body and your mind. Personally I`d rather smoke up a joint here and there than suck down a pack and a half a day of cigarettes a day. Is a whole lot better for you.
The best part about that sight is it is very informative.
I myself have never tried any kinds of illegal drugs, not even alcohol. I, being 14, hope to never try any kinds of illegal drugs, and keep away as much as possible from alcohol or cigarettes for as long as I live."
If you`ve never tried anything, then where do you get off telling people to stay away from any of those substances?
Since you believe the first thing you are told here is evidence of the contrary:
sounds scary doesn`t it?
oh my god, MILD symtoms!? RUN FOR THE HILLS!
And for all of you worried about how you might become addicted to pot, or think it is a serious issue check this out. Caffine is an addictive drug to worry about!
you might want to put down your cup of coffee first...
Also sertrbl, let me quote you:
" cause im a Christian and dont like harming my body."
No, you just believe in harming the bodies of people who don`t believe in the same thing you do. Crusades ring a bell?
* The link provides information on the topic from an interesting perspective. Though I do not find it all completely correct, it does have some interesting facts, and it`s perspective, as everyone else`s is as valid as my own.
http://www.drugpolicy.org/marijuana/fact...-One of the best sources I have come across
I have also taken a health class, and read books about drugs. I research before believing.
I never once said if you do it once, you cannot stop. OVER TIME, nicotine causes physical dependency and marijuana causes psychological. Also, I have recently done courses, my own research. I have even talked to people who have abused a variety of drugs. I do understand the topic, though sometimes I do make a mistake, or am too general.
"And as for you fermented, CANNABIS SATIVA is marijuana you idiot"
I did know Cannibis Sativa is marijuana, but I found myself to be repetitive to keep saying Marijuana, so I changed to the broader term (which incorporates HASHISH) Cannabis Sativa.
All in all, I respect your opinions, and hope we can talk more about this subject, I would like to be further enlightened. I do, after all, yearn for answers.
Thank you for your input.
I have smoked pot many times. There have been times where I would smoke every day, multiple times a day for a week or more, and then just stopped for a while until I felt like doing it again. Did I experience any withdrawl symptoms? No. I did not.
I wouldn`t recommend anyone drives while on any sort of intoxicant but I have seen many times how much better a high driver is than a drunk driver.
All the people talking about pot causing cancer still haven`t been able to produce one case of someone dying of cancer from smoking marijuana alone.
Have you ever heard of anyone dying of a marijuana overdose? Have you heard of anyone dying of alcohol poisoning? Which ones legal? Yeah, our country is smart.
Citing sources not only backs up your claims and shows intelligence, it also prevents spreading of bad information.
that would be Red Mage my tiger friend
you may check one of them out in any old Gameboy Final Fantasy games
I have never played those however, I put him there because of a little webcomic called 8-Bit Theater
You can basically get cancer from anything. Live your life in fear, you get it from the sun, hard metals, inhalation of smoke blah blah blah.
Everyone dies someday. You can`t live forever.
Marijuna actually does not promote cancer as much as your cigarettes do. It still allows cancerous cells to commit "suicide," where if you are just your straight cigarette smoker, these cells build up. Build of up cancerous cells caues tumors.
People say that pot has 4 times the amount of nicotine as 1 cigarette. When is the last time you saw someone smoke just 1 cigarette a day, a week, or a month. If you smoke 12 joints a day, I doubt you could get off your couch or respond to anything, but it isn`t uncommon to see someone smoke 12+ cigarettes a day. Do the math.
Pot isn`t dangerous. If you want to talk about addiction - caffine is a 6/6 for addiction. Go to your local office building and take away their coffee in the morning. See what happens before 9AM. It ain`t gun
Anyways I HAVE NEVER SMOKED WEED!!! I have never done any kinds of drugs. So I guess I am one of the few out there...But I still think marijuana should be legal.
Fermented...I hope that you can keep from drugs! I have and I have no regrets at all about it!
"For the record, one joint has 4 times the amount of nicotine as a cigarette.
In case you don`t know this ethier: Nicotine causes cancer."
Marijuana does not contain nicotine (which causes physical and mental stimulation and addiction) at all. It does however, contain THC (a chemical that causes physical stimulation and mental addiction).
Nicotine does not cause cancer. It is the carcinogens found within the same things nicotine is found in.
My opinion and bottom line: Cannabis Sativa, Marijuana, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Opium Derivatives, the whole lot - should be stayed away from.
I myself have never tried any kinds of illegal drugs, not even alcohol. I, being 14, hope to never try any kinds of illegal drugs, and keep away as much as possible from alcohol or cigarettes for as long as I live.
Also, this is a REAL story and article.
Marijuana is a DANGEROUS drug, no matter how much you have heard about it`s recreational use. It causes relaxation, and decreases the users judgement and inhibitions, causing the users to make irrational decisions, and also causes PSYCHOLOGICAL DEPENDENCE. The only reason medical marijuana was legalized, was to help TERMINAL CANCER PATIENTS, and is about the only good use for the drug. Marijuana is proven to stay in a person`s system FOR UP TO TWO MONTHS.
Everything above has been clinically researched, studied, and proven.
Secondly, Firebird37, you say people can do whatever they want to thier bodies as long as it doesnt cause anyone else harm. A drunk driver who gets didtracted and hits a woman and her two year child, and both of them die but hes allright, that affects others.
For the record, one joint has 4 times the amount of nicotine as a cigarette.
In case you don`t know this ethier: Nicotine causes cancer.
My mind is not poisend by the government... No, it`s just not being convinced by people who get rid of there problems by geting "high."
Harder drugs do promote violence. Are you going to tell me that the Cocaine addict Scarface is a man of peace? ;-/ didn`t think so.
Hickenlooper is our mayor- barely any political experience BUT he owns a great brewery here!
NOW, I can guarantee you SOUTH PARK WILL TO AN EPISODE ON THIS!!!
in the future I shall try to keep my marijuana knowledge up to date so as to avoid further meaningless conflict
just agree with everyone and life is happy!
"California already legalizes weed for medicinal purposes."
No they don`t. The thing they give to people with cancer is a natural painkiller that can be FOUND in weed. They don`t hand `em blunt and say, "light up."
The only reason they are legal is the huge ammount of tax the government gets from them
What are you talking about? A pee test can show if a person has smoked any time in the last month and alcohol is out of your system in a matter of hours. Oh, and if it were legalized, what makes you think that people would automatically do it on the job? It’s not like everyone who drinks gets buzzed during work.
"Plus, smoking marijuana has been proven to cause cancer"
So does tobacco. In fact excessive tobacco and alcohol can lead to cancer, liver and kidney problems, stomach and skin problems, impotence, damaged brain cells, memory loss, loss of appetite and vitamin deficiencies.
The thing people don’t realize is that alcohol and nicotine are in fact drugs. They just happen to be legal.
Vive la Columbie Brittanique!
