Of course the affect is very addictive to your mind and you almost never "just do it once."
i would never do pot, why? no point in doing it...I dont have alot of stress or problems at home or at school.
The ratio of these two substances determine the character and strength of the effect. Like fine wines, different strains of cannabis can have their own flavour and complexity, plus their own distinct high.
ex. I was on lortabs for two months after emergency surgery last year, but that`s because I had a huge slash across my stomach that looked like someone tried to cut me open with a butterknife; the scar is still sore. I hated it, but it beat being in pain. My family was afraid I`d get addicted to the pills even though I really needed them at the time. When I had told my friends about the surgery and that I was on meds for the pain, a complete stranger, all strung out and shaking, actually ran up to me and begged me to give them my pills. It still gets a wtf.
The info is under the second link I posted on the 6th page. There are links for medicinal, recreational, and industrial uses. I`m not posting them each individually, go find them yourself, it`s not that hard.
Also, I don`t see why this became a huge argument over alcohol vs weed. Pertaining to the vid, the guy thought he was pretty slick, but at least he was honest with the cop and he didn`t have to waste his and the station`s time to call in the drug dogs... don`t get me started on the dogs, it`s pretty cruel how they train them. But that`s a different story for another time.
medicine- can be used as a mild pain reliever, stress reducer, subdues nausia, induces hunger in cancer patients. There are select few who get weed legally while everyone else has to take pills where most the side effects are worse than the illness we`re suffering from.
Example: Nasal spray side effects (for decongestion)- Stinging, burning, sneezing, increased nasal discharge, drying of the nostrils, nosebleeds and altered taste may occur.Yeah... I think I`ll suffer with the decongestion for a bit longer thank you.
Let`s see... all together that would put Logging companies out of business. It would put cotton farmers out of business. It would put the gas and oil companies out of business. Well, can`t say the medical field, but that`s still a pretty big chunk.
From one of the links I posted earlier, under `industrial uses`. Sorry to bring that up but eh *shr
But the reason it was made illegal was because hemp is a very versatile plant. If used to its full potential (for making paper, clothes, etc.), it would put a lot of companies out of business and honestly, the rich people want to stay that way. Here`s an example of how devestating it would be to them.
Uses for hemp... other than smoking it:Paper - One acre of hemp in ANNUAL rotation will produce as much pulp for paper as 4.1 acres of trees during the same 20 year period. Hemp can be grown and harvested once a year, unlike trees which take up to 50 or 100 years to grow back.
Clothing - strong and durable, produces three times as much fiber per acre as cotton. Cotton is grown on only 3% of the world`s farmland, it uses a devastating 26% of the world`s pesticides per year. Hemp requires no pesticides or herbicides to gro
One more thing for those of you that claim that marijhuana is just a step to real drugs.. that is only the case BECAUSE it is criminalised. That way you can only buy it from a criminal who is very likely to have other controlled substances. If you can just go and buy it in a shop, like here in the Netherlands, you don`t have this problem.
Ok, so I may be wrong about what exactly is in ecstacy, but at least I can honestly say that I never have tried anything other than weed. Other than the fact that I know they`re very bad for you, I just never had the urge to do it.
hmm..i`ve been learning english in school for about 7 years now and i like to read things in english..maybe that`s why i am so good :D
I actually know an old friend that became schitzophrenic during his teenage years who smoked marijuana and drank alcohol. Truthfully, in my opinion, I believe that the alcohol effected him more than the pot did... but i`m not going to argue about it :)
so where is the mistake?
If I wanted to, I could add into the debate myself; however i`ve wasted enough time doing that before on other sites. In the end, if someone is predisposed to a mental illness such as that, don`t you think that alcohol could just as easily bring it out as well?
We never really got into the politics around cannibus. We were more talking about the myths and facts regarding its affect on the body.
And klein, marijuana is only psychologically additcting to people who are weak minded and truly believe they can`t operate with cannibus. It`s not that it is psychologically addicting, it`s that it CAN be psychologically addicting. And like I`ve said plenty of times before, even if someone was psychologically addicted to marijuana, they could still stop with virtually no repercussions other than what`s only in their mind.
B-Hazard, CANT YOU JUST UNDERSTAND THAT IT’S PSYCHOLOGICAL ADDICTING??? (psychological addicting=addicting okay???)
Inuneko, whats the bad thing about chemical drugs? It’s anything on this planet made by chemical connections?..just to let you think on: natural drugs are in most cases poisons to keep animals from that plants away..chemical drugs are made like they shold just affects where it should..so what is worse now?And that ecstasy is made of rat poison is just rubbish…please inform yourself!
http://www.geocities.com/medicalmarijuan...This one hurts your eyes if you stare at the page too long, stupid yellow font.
Go ahead and flame away, I don`t care. A lot of you have a good point. Young kids who keep being lied to about the `addictive` and `dangerous` effects of pot, the ONLY drug I`ve seen and heard mentioned in anti-drug commercials, there is a high chance they will think that the warnings we`ve given them about the harder drugs is a bunch of bull too. Luckily my mom decided to have a long talk with me about drugs and she told me truth about everything.
One the one hand there are a few people who I hold in high regard who have used a lot of pot in the past, and on the other hand, just look at how retarded the star of this video is... marijuana has to be a factor in that. Food for thought chaps, and no flames thanks, whatever side you`re on I`ve spoken in your favour :D
It`s not PHYSICALLY addicting. I don`t know how many times that`s been said now.
and as far as the `gateway` theory goes...I really don`t even feel like getting into that. If you want me to, I will. But I bet I have just as many examples of people that haven`t moved on to stronger drugs as you do people that have.
The main point is it`s not as bad as it`s made to look. Namely by people like you that make people that smoke marijuana look like the scum of the earth.
But that`s your preference. It really shouldn`t bother you that someone does something that not only doesn`t hurt them, but doesn`t hurt you either. But it does bother you and that probably won`t change.
If you aren`t going to bring something intelligent to the debate, just stay out of it.
Do your parents even know you do that stuff? Or your freinds? I would NEVER hang out with a guy like you, especially if they don`t feel even the least bit bad about what they`re doing, and saying it`s a good thing.
I think you have marijuana mixed up with heroin...Two completely diffrent things. It`s people like you that say poo like this, and when kids eventually smoke marijuana, they`ll find out that the "addictive" and "deadly" things they have herd about weed are fake, and then they`ll think that everything about heroin or other hard drugs is wrong too so they`ll do them and get addicted and die.
I thought that`s what we were doing....
Pros:Stress ReliefPain ReliefNausea Relief (sometimes)Good timeSocial ActivityNot as harmful for lungs as cigarettesNo chemicals (usually)kills less brain cells that alcoholinduces euphoriaanti-depressant
Cons:Harmful to lungs (so is smoking ANYTHING)Weakening to the immune systemCauses bronchitis (so do cigarettes)Causes brain damage (less so than alcohol or even aspartame.)
and how did this turn into a "uropeeeaan" versus "ameriken" war?!?! you guys need to relaxxxxxx
Alcohol Pros: You get drunk(although it can be a con)Social ActivityCAN relieve stressReduce your risk of developing heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and intermittent claudicationReduce your risk of dying of a heart attackPossibly reduce your risk of strokes, particularly ischemic strokesLower your risk of gallstonesPossibly reduce your risk of diabetes

lol at shizophrenia :)
You`re an idiot.
I don`t even feel sorry for you! I can`t wait untill the day your begging for a joint on the street. Why? You feel no shame in getting high. Seriously man... just stop...
Especially, like said before, lots of kids are going to read that, and they`ll think it`s cool. Hope your happy ruining other people`s lives while your at it.
i maybe we don`t understand each others because i used the word "withdrawals" in a wrong way, it just doesn`t stnad in my dictionary and i told you i`m from germany..it`s hard to discuss in english :/
....no. no they`re not.
and you have yet to post a link concerning all this talk about people going crazy from smoking pot.
they are not uncontrollable but it`s not desirable to live with a shizophrenia
Not to mention the fact that psychological withdrawals are psychological. It`s all in your head and they are far from uncontrollable.
I only see where you said"and marihuana is too....." after ImNoGod said "Nicotine is HIGHLY addictive."
Zomg lawl joints only contain nicotine if you roll them with TOBACCO in it, but no one around here does that.
It just goes to show how terribly misinformed people are when it comes to cannibus.
I mostly agree except for your point that pot is not addictive. A joint contains 4 times the amount of nicotine as a normal cig. Nicotine is HIGHLY addictive.
and you don`t know if you are predisposed!!!
i have informed myself a lot about this and i have a reason for that!
Not trying to be an ass, but you have no idea what you`re talking about when you say marijuana causes psycological disease or the varibles of the experiments that said this.
I have a feeling you`ve never even looked into that matter and you just heard it from someone else.
I can garuntee you alcohol carries more physical consequences than marijuana.
People who are addicted to pain killer, meth, herion, crack, etc... and stop cold turkey go have a withdrawal which consists of uncontrolable shaking, cold sweats, dry heaves, sleepless nights, and whole lot of other bad stuff.
No one is `playing it down` everything I`ve posted has been a fact.
but i dont understand the word "withdrawals" in your first paragradh, my dictionary doesn`t help me :(
There`s already enough media about the "dangers" of marijuana. Infact I`m sure the ads have the opposite effect now since they`re all so exaggerated that anyone who knows the real story knows its all bull. Teenagers do need to be taught the dangers of drugs, but they also need to be taught the truth. That if you`re going to consume a substance that intoxicates you in any way, marijuana is the safest route. What we`re failing to teach our youth is how to be safe about obtaining their recreational drugs, and how to be safe while using them. Instead we just lie to them about the dangers and hope for the best, but we get the worst instead.
and about this addictive thing: i know many people who smoke everyday and many of them had to stop it i.e. for getting their driving license back..and nearly nobody of them did it to just stop smoking for 2 weeks..and is see many people who perish (i hops it`s the right word) at marihuana..
and i dont say marihuana is sooo bad but i just dont like people playing it down because it just is not good. when somebody wants do do it, he sure can but not write arguments for it in the internet where young people can read it..because they dont knoe the risks..which are real big when you are about 14 years old...
Smoking cannibus isn`t physically addictive, that`s a pretty widely known fact.
Most people don`t smoke their cannibus with tobacco, that`s more of a european thing. And it`s already been shown that cannibus itself does not promote lung cancer.
And smoking cannibus is far less dangerous than drinking. Maybe if you drink a beer to relax it won`t have much of an impact, but if you just take a couple hits to relax you`re barely doing any damage. The MOST physical harm that can come from smoking cannibus is the harm that the smoke does to the lungs, and you don`t have to smoke cannibus to use it. The MOST physical harm that can come from drinking is, what, liver failure or alcohol poisoning?
Where have you heard that it IS addictive exactly? I know many upon many people who smoke pot, some smoke it daily, some smoke it weekly, some smoke it once a month or less, and none of them have had any problems when they need to quit to pass a drug test or when the scene is just dry for a while. Sure you can have a mental addiction to it if you`re really that addictive of a personality, but there are no physical withdrawals.
ON THE OTHER HAND: You know what is addictive? Caffeine, nicotine, OTC sleeping pills, Afrin nasal spray, there`s people out there who have a mental addiction to frickin cheeseburgers. Explain to me how marijuana is worse than this.
B-Hazard: i`m sory that a didn`t pick the right word, i`m not a native speaker alright?
madcherries: you really want to tell me now that smoking pot isn`t addictive?? where have you heard that?
bonitalydia: afaik most people smoke their pot with tobacco even if they use bowls..so where is the difference?
i can`t believe it..i just say something against a drug and everbody begins to argue against me..do you really think there is no reason for marihuana being illegal? young kids read what you say and think "oh yeah, smoking pot is less dangerous than alcohol..and it isn`t addictive..cool that i could do that too"..thats just irresponsible and immature..
In which case possession might have been the better charge. I know that little joint would be a slap on the wrist here, but I don`t know his laws.
....I`m going to assume by `bad psychic diseases` you meant psychological diseases. Then I`m going to ask for a link.
As far as I know know cannibus only has a CHANCE to lead to schizophrenia in SOME people who are already predisposed.
As for me, I would rather just breath in the air around me. Why anyone wants to destroy their lungs is beyond me.
SPrinkZ I am going to need that armor for a second
And Marijuana is probably a better solution than drinking...In proportion...as in maybe once every two weeks<--- doesnt smoke pot thinks its disgusting
*is now flame armor clad, and wields a massive flaming blade*
I`m ready! Let`s do this sh|t! To begin, Holland is a rather non-reputable country, that has a very lackluster history.
that cops observation sucks. took him FOREVER.
please do explain to me what classifys an illegal drug worth while?
