    it speaks the truth? maybe form the point of view of people who want to make marijuana legal. if you need drugs or alcohol to have fun, feel good or be happy you have a problem that drugs and alcohol cant fix. look at your life and find out why you cant have fun or be happy with your self win you arnt high or drunk.

    It`s not about whether or not you can be happy with or without it. Of course one should never have to rely on something like that for happiness.

    What it`s about is being able to decide for yourself whether or not you want to sit back and light up a joint instead of drinking a beer.

    There`s no reason for it to be illegal.

    PLEASE: Let`s not have this turn into an arguement already. Some people like it, some people don`t. It isn`t really harmful as most would say it is, but that doesn`t mean some people would still allow it. Wether or not it`s worse than alcohol doesn`t matter, lets just post about the book.

    In all honesty I don`t see anything wrong with this other than the way they pretty much promote it. I think it`s good that they acknowledge it exsists, but come on, righting a whole book about it?

    I totally saw the author of this book having a debate with some idiot news anchor on CNN Headline News a couple weeks ago! Haha!! I wish I could find a video of that debate... the news anchor was a f..king moron!! He was so closed-minded about the topic.

    I don`t really think there should be books on MJ for KIDS... they can figure it out on their own when they go to college. =P They don`t need to hear about it when they`re 5 freaking years old.

    I bet later on in the book it`s like "don`t let yourself anywhere near the candy aisle when you`ve smoked a joint." Ahh, munchies...

    Slurba, actually, lots of people drive better under the influence. I`m not saying people SHOULD, but a British news channel did a study where a guy drove a test course both clean and under the influence to see how well he did both times, and... well... watch the vid yourself!

    Personally, I`d MUCH rather be driving on the road with someone who had smoked some weed than someone who`s been drinking.

    Regardless though, if it were legalized its not like driving high would be legalized to. Having weed illegal obviously isn`t doing anything to stop people from driving while high.

    dont get me wrong i love pot, but should kids really be reading that? in my opinion they should not.
    and weed will NEVER be legalized no matter how much we fight for it because of the fact that its so easy to grow in your backyard and the government would never make a profit and thats all they care about.

    It kind of sucked the way the book infers that the cop in this situation is the bad guy for coming down hard on these nice pot smoking folks.

    I think giving kids this kind of lesson at an age when good and bad has very few shades of gray is pretty irresponsible.

    Zerocyde, that`s a pretty rash generalization to make about a group of people, don`t you think? All people who enjoy weed are as stupid as a child??

    Would it shock you to know that plenty of successful, college-educated, highly acclaimed people in the world use marijuana? That doesn`t mean they`re also alcoholics, or snort coke on the weekend, or beat their spouses, or commit murders.

    It bothers me how so many people think marijuana is the root of all evil, when there are hardly any reports of misbehavior attributed to it. There are worse things in the world than weed, my friend. Drunk driving, child abuse and neglect, rape, animal cruelty, things that cause REAL harm.

    If anyone is living in the United States, then personal liberty guarantees that Marijuana, and other `illegal` substances should be legal. Let`s face it. Marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol in the first place. I`d rather have booze banned than marijuana, but we already know what happened with that.

    Also, there are plenty of people who have enjoyed weed: Carl Sagan for one, and Bruce Lee were both known to either ingest, or smoke it. Bruce Lee preferred to take it in its most potent form: hash. And Bruce Lee could whoop the poo out of all of us.

    Marijuana is less addictive than tobacco. It`s only banned because cotton farmers in the early part of the century saw it as competition, and moved to get it banned.

    i think it`s interesting how society has changed, and i think that it`s important to adapt. the way we teach our kids will have to change to fit their need to learn about the prevailant parts of our society. for better or worse this is quickly becoming one of those prevailant things and we need to acknowledge that.

    Weed is the first step on the ladder towards harder drugs.

    It causes problems in society, fuels the gang culture, resulting in deaths of innocent people.

    I enjoy killing people with my bare hands...should that be made legal too because I `enjoy it`?

    Also, I`ve found that discussions about marijuana use on IAB/YT are pointless. Both sides "know everything" and think the other one is only using one type of information.

    Marijuana is bad, just like inhaling campfire smoke is bad. It hampers brain growth in adolescent use and is one of the leading causes of schizophrenia in todays youth. That being said, it`s still a whole lot better for you/more fun than alcohol.

    Marijuana is a natural substance not like most other drugs that you have to process to get an effect from it. I think it should be legalized. But what I couldn`t understand is, was this book promoting it or what? In the beginning it seemed that way then at the end it wasn`t, I am confused.

    I enjoy killing people with my bare hands...should that be made legal too because I `enjoy it`?-

    60% of all crackheads have smoked wreed like 75% of them have smoked ciggarettes and 85% of them have eaten chicken. There`s no way to pin any blame on weed itself for people moving on to harder drugs.

    What you CAN blame is the fact that lies and deception have been used for years to "fight" against marijuana. So when kids find out it`s not nearly as bad* as they were told for the jist of their life, it`s not so hard for them to assume al the other drugs may not be so bad either.

    *I`m not saying it`s a miracle drug, but there`s no way in hell anyone can say D.A.R.E.`s take on marijuana 10 years ago was accurate.

    Not to mention the illegality of it only makes it easier to get to harder drugs because your weed man is most likely delving into other methods of income.

    -...and is one of the leading causes of schizophrenia in todays youth.-

    I`m gonna have to call shenanigans on that one.

    Nice made up `statistics`...its a shame they`re pretty meaningless.

    People get killed over the dealing of drugs. There have been cases here in the UK where the children of drug dealers have been killed in their own home.

    People who are able to gain possession of cannibis are more likely to get hold of harder drugs...that`s just plain common sense.

    It is a mind altering drug, simple as that.

    And to whoever it was that insulted me on page 2, I don`t really give a damn what you say. I don`t call you anything, so you don`t have to call me anything, savvy?

    In an ironic twist I forgot to respond to the rest of that first post.

    That second line, again, that`s because it`s illegal in the first place. People say it needs to be illegal because of violent drug dealers when the fact is there`s wouldn`t be violent drug dealers selling it if it wasn`t illegal.

    And I may be wrong but I`m pretty sure killing someone with your bare hands harms someone other than you for your pleasure. That`s when it`s not such a great thing to do what you love.

    You may come around and say "well what if you`re hurting the people around you that don`t want you to do it" or "what about the children?!"

    One. Any responsible pothead isn`t going to associate with people who try to pull them down for what they`re doing in the first place, and as the saying goes "those who mind don`t matter, and those who matter don`t mind"

    so anyone who loves you enough to be truly hurt from you smoking should love you enough to look at the other side of the issue.

    I personally don`t think people should smoke around kids until they`re at LEAST 14. But at the same time I think it`s a little more concerning when parents get drunk around kids than high (assuming they aren`t doing all the actual smoking right in front of their 5 y/o)

    Typical, only seeing the smaller picture. I know there are a lot of respectable people, leaders, who use/have used drugs in the past, but what about the ones who need to fuel drug habbits?

    And where does one draw the line? Are some drugs okay but not others? Why?

    Hard drugs rip families apart, ruin lives, cause crime and, in all honesty, aren`t needed at all. Nobody NEEDS drugs before they use them (obviosuly I`m not talking about medical use).

    It`s a mix of bad habbits and influence...its just to nice there are a few of us who haven`t jumped on the bandwagon.

    ConverseUK: Well if marijuana was legal, it would be in the hands of legitiment bussinesses. Which means people wouldn`t get it from violent drug dealers (Even though I have never seen a violent person who dealed weed). Street gangs wouldn`t sell it anymore and most people won`t get to "hard" drugs because they`d be buying it from a store, even though the gateway theory is B/S and anyone who believes it is just dumb.

    I don`t think there`s anyone who smokes marijuana that ENCOURAGES drug-free folks to involve themselves with it. If you`re drug-free, STAY that way. It`s noble. Don`t smoke, don`t drink, don`t put things into your body. We respect you for it.

    I think the only thing that we (the pro-legalization bunch) are arguing is that people need to be responsible for THEMSELVES. We are old enough to choose what to do with our own lives. These people who think marijuana should be kept illegal are the same people who think homosexuality is wrong and fight to keep gays from earning any rights. Everyone is trying to control how other people live their lives, which is absurd to me, because if your own life is so thoroughly uninteresting that you feel the need to have a say in what others can and can`t do, then you`re failing to see the real problem.

    Bottom line, if ALCOHOL, which is responsible for so much crime and so many lives lost, is legal, then marijuana should be as well.

    ConverseUK,

    yes some drugs are ok but other`s aren`t. As much as you would love a nanny state to tell you exactly what you can and cannot put into your body many of us have a sense of personal responsibility. So if I start drinking too much beer I`m damn well not gonna whine and complain to the breweries and demand we remove alchohol from public consumption, even though it may lead to "harder drugs". Some people can`t handle any kind of mind alterating substance simple as that, others can. We have a sliding scale in all aspects of our society (laws, religion, etc) and we have a sliding scale for what drugs we allow in our respective societies even though some in said society can`t handle it. Tough for them, they should not take a drug if they know it screws up their life.

    I`ll make a statement here that has already been made, but apparently didn`t make it through to some people.

    Weed was made illegal due to racism and greed.
    Originally people`s assumption that it was a horrible substance was based on lies and deceit.

    And again, the vast majority of people against it think it`s bad just because it`s illegal, but it`s illegal (now) because people think it`s bad.

    "What you CAN blame is the fact that lies and deception have been used for years to "fight" against marijuana. So when kids find out it`s not nearly as bad* as they were told for the jist of their life, it`s not so hard for them to assume all the other drugs may not be so bad either."

    Agreed. It`s not marijuana usage that leads people to other drugs, it`s the false idea `if pot isn`t so bad, crack and LSD and ecstacy must not be so bad either.` People just need to be smart enough to draw the line at marijuana and understand that the same isn`t true for other drugs, and it`s been PROVEN. That`s where people go wrong.

    I personally don`t know anyone who smokes pot and now does harder drugs, so that `gateway` theory seems bogus to me.

    B-Hazzard....also don`t forget that the government doesn`t care if the public uses drugs, they just want us to use THEIR drugs. I also remember reading about how in the early 1900`s The DuPont chemical company was starting to produce plastic or synthetic type material. Hemp was being use for many different purposes and DuPont could not make a buck with hemp around. So all it took were some friends in high places to get hemp/marijuana banned. Leave it to big business to ruin a good thing |-(

    Iamnotbored2, I think you`re saying we have some laws for some people, and not for others?

    Does every drunk-driver crash and kill someone? So why don`t we only arrest those who will kill someone?

    Do you see what I mean about it being hard to control these things? The fact is that people don`t need drugs, simple as that.

    As for those saying legalizing cannibis will solve the problems, well I`m afraid this again suffers from the `where to draw the line` effect.

    Why not just legalize everything? Because that`ll cause more problems than it`ll solve.

    ConverseUk,

    try to keep up. We are not talking about outlawing behavior we are discussing outlawing some drugs while keeping others. Some people have 1 beer a day and never get drunk. Some people have 7 beers a day and stay drunk all day. We as a society say alchohol is for adults and if you want to stay trashed 24/7 we don`t really care. Life will work out, you`ll lose your job, your family and die alone and sick.. or you will get wise and not abuse the alchohol. This is now happening with marijuana. And yes we do have some laws depending on who you are, adults and children are tried differently in many countries. Take some responsibility and stop relying on the government to make your decisions for you.

    The whole `gateway drug` thing is complete BS. That was based on a study that took heroin and cocaine users and looked at how many of them started with pot, which was a fairly large percentage.

    No one (that I`m aware of) has ever looked at marijuana users to see how many of them go on to harder drugs.

    That usually means the person is lying :p. It only would`ve been more obvious if he said, "Just kidding!"

    Interesting book though, lulz.

    "Hard drugs rip families apart, ruin lives, cause crime and, in all honesty, aren`t needed at all. Nobody NEEDS drugs before they use them (obviosuly I`m not talking about medical use)."

    I agree.

    And I have to say that book had no plot. Hey lets go see mr. farmer man, Oh look it`s halloween, let me dress up in a very asian costume, in case you couldn`t tell my ethnicity.
    Maybe it has some point later in the book? Apparently it gets better, according to the reviews, but how trusting are those really?

    I can also assure all of you that I stopped smoking weed because I don`t need it. But I also don`t see anything wrong with it.

    well first the picture of the people smoking, that was a Hookah, so the author could have put something more fitting in there.

    And I read over the first few pages, I think mary jane should be legal, I don`t smoke it, I don`t really care if anyone does but it`s a lot less harmful than ciggs and/or alcohol. It just isn`t conducive to economic policy and it`s too difficult to regulate so instead they just make it entirely illegal, which is changing in some places, for example a few years back in Dever, CO they made it legal to carry an ounce on your person in public which is a big jump from how it used to be.

There is also this vid similar to it on youtube. Click here to see it. It`s not on marijuana speciffically but it talks about drugs. :-?

    And may I also add that I have a friend whose last name is Hemp...seriously. Sometimes we tease her by saying "Mary-wanna-Hemp" XD ROFL.

    Congratulations, you just said one of the stupidest things I`ve ever heard!

    You ever read up on how they make heroin? There`s a lot of work involved to get a poppy plant to heroin status. It`s a very manufactured drug.

    Ever read up on how they make marijuana?

    Here`s how:

    They GROW IT
    They PICK IT
    They DRY IT
    and then they SMOKE IT

    Maybe, if they`re feeling a little daring, they`ll even cure it for a while.

    One of the most natural goddamn things you can consume! It`s picked off a plant, and then smoked, and you idiots thing it`s dangerous enough to be outlawed?

    Do you people even remember how to think for yourselves?

    You see how it`s affected his social skills? Also I`d like to note the pride he takes. This is a child who is taking pride knowing he is a drug user.

    That`s the whole point. You come on here, pick someone who is young and can`t spell for crap, then say, "oh, look! marijuana is obviously the sole source of this stupidity!"
    You neglect all the posts that are well thought out and try to say that pot = stupid in terms of posting.
    So by saying that you pick the stupid pro pot arguments for your argument of pot users are stupid; it kind of seems like your being close minded, and only able to see any little bit of evidence that you might be right.

    -How exactly would you say my opinion is flawed?-

    I see it as flawed for the exact reason I stated in almost every post here. I also see it as flawed, not only because you won`t answer most of the rebuttals against your argument, but also because you just keep repeating the same thing.

    "It causes problems in society, fuels the gang culture, resulting in deaths of innocent people."
    "People get killed over the dealing of drugs. There have been cases here in the UK where the children of drug dealers have been killed in their own home."
    "Hard drugs (I don`t even know why you`d classify MJ as a hard drug) rip families apart, ruin lives, cause crime..."

    It`s becoming painstakingly obvious that you`ve been cemented into one stance based on little to nothing and you won`t read a word that would convince you otherwise.

    One time I was talking about going to get a bowl with my friends... At that point some female walked up to us holding a beer and said "Drugs are bad and could kill you"
    That all I have to say except this last note... The beer that she was holding is just as much of a drug as weed.

    Sorry ConverseUK, but you just made me pissed off by giving BS reasons for why marijuana is bad, and for some reason, you still believe that marijuana is a "harm" to our society. Well guess what, the president smoked pot, so did Barak Obama, and so many other success full people. And your saying im at the lower end of the "scale"?? I get A`s and B`s in school and i only use marijuana to relax and for social purposes. Yes, i take pride on useing marijuana, because it has helped me through High school. Some people play video games to get away from problems and some people join clubs, well.. i like to smoke a joint every now and then. So i don`t understand why you think pot is so bad? No one has ever died from pot you cant overdose on it its not addicting, and it doesn`t cause cancer. I have given proof that shows that marijuana is not a dangerous drug, and you have yet to give proof on why it is so dangerous.

    you guys realise right that marijuana is also a pain reliever, right?

    for people with chronic pain that don`t want to just take a handfull of drugs and pass out for...well about.....4-5 hours.

    Because some people have lives that they cannot enjoy if they are passed out in bed for hours while their kids have to worry about making dinner and when their mom/dad`s next doctors appointment will be.

    soooo, marijuana is fine by me if the people using are using for good and not evil. :-)

    I`ll start with jjcruiser13 purely because that was the first reply I got...

    If you took any time to read, you`d notice I was quoting someone who was admittedly under the influence of drugs. He is a child. he has been effected socially with the drug use, that`s why I picked him as a PRIME EXAMPLE.

    B-Hazard, I don`t know where to begin. You`re saying my opinion is flawed. Can I just remind you that it is my opinion. That`s all I can say to you really, until you get your head out of your own backside.

    Old_School, I was talking about you being on the lower end of the `age scale`, not the intellectual.
    "you have yet to give proof on why it is so dangerous."
    Looks like people are disregarding my posts too.

    I`m not lying when I speak of the young children who are killed because of the gang culture fueled by drugs. I`m not making it up. I`m not bending the truth. It just appears that you`re all so hung up on using cannibis that you ignore the ones who are suffering.

    Ok... people are killed by drugs but not by the sale of cannabis. I grow my own weed so that takes away the "fuel for gang part". And even if i buy some I always buy it from friends who grow their own. and also, if you bake it and not smoke it, it takes away the unhealthy part. I believe i should be able to have fun smoking if I`m hearting any one. Aslo, I know your not making stuff up about cannibus, you were just misinformed. Here, ill even direct you to some websites that have great information on cannabis -
    here and here

    Also, guns fuel gangs, we should make guns illegal too. Even though responsible people can use it. Same with alcohol.. no one should be drinking that stuff... its bad for you and it fuels gangs. I also think there should be someone that controlls every thing we eat because eating to much and eating things that aren`t good for you is bad for your health and you could die from it! I finally get what your saying ConversUk. You are the kind of person who thinks that by controlling everything we do in life, life will be better.

    ALSO, were did you learn all your BS from? i have given you 2 links to sites i got my info from so i think you should do the same.

    A black family in north london...father was involved in drugs...oneday, a `client` or `enemy` or whatever, broke in, killed the father in front of the children then killed the kids. Now are you telling me that`s acceptable?

    And for your information, firearms are illegal here in the UK. And it works.

    I do see it from your point of view...you`re a child who needs the use of drugs to `get away from the stresses of life`. Look at it from my point of view...your life is already this stressful you need to use cannibis? What about when you`re 30 and life is about 200x more stressful? 1/8th just might not cut it. You`ll be measuring stress in milligrams.

    I hope you`re smart enough to not try anything harder...but peer-pressure`s a bitch, right?

    Ok, first of all i don`t use it to "get away from the stresses of life" i use it to have fun! Second, I no harder drugs are bad and i would never take them. But i do see something wrong in your logic, i still don`t understand why you want to keep marijuana illegal if people are killing people over it! If you just make it legal, then instead of someone going down town to the ghetto to get some smoke, your just going to your local smoke shop. So it seems to me that making it legal would stop the innocent from being killed.
    And to back up what im saying, in Amsterdam were marijuana is legal, people aren`t killing people over it. Because the only thing it does is it makes you realxed, relieves pain, and is a mild euphoric.

    ConverseUk, I believe you are a sick sadist person who needs help, seeing as you like give ridiculous and totally stupid (but sort of believable) comments. Practically all your comments posted on this website are about you whinnying your ass off about something or posting stuff that you knew that would spark arguments. Take example from the True life I`m a Emo post. For some reason, you were offended by it and started spamming this site why your stupid posts. So please, do us all a favor, and crawl back into what ever deep and dark cave you can from and never post here again... please... and thats it, I`m done arguing with you for the sake of your sadistic pleasures.

    How about this, we should legalize marijuana.

    That way potheads won`t have anything to talk about EVER!

    I think this book is absolutely hilarious, whether or not it was meant to be.

    Ok. I feel I should be a bit more serious. I know that the only reason pot was illegalized in the first place was because cotton growers didn`t want competition from the cotton-like parts of the plant. And that`s a dumb reason for it to be outlawed.

    Second, a majority of archival studies show that unrestrained use of the cannabis can have different effects from person to person. So one`s experience of it "being alright" or "happy" and another of "It`s horrible" can both be true.

    Third, a recent health study showed a genetic trait that about a quarter of the population has, can lead to an increased risk of mental illness when pot is used.

    Fourth, almost no known link has been shown between pot and cancer. The studies that showed the opposite didn`t take other variables into account.

    I personally don`t want to use it, but I don`t give a poo if other people do. Whether it becomes legalized or remains as is I really don`t care.

    Old_School, you`re using big scary words in all the wrong places. I`m not sick, nor am I a sadist. Do you even know what a sadist is? If so, how on earth do I get granted sadistic status? I really don`t get it.

    As for my other comments, well what can I say...I like sticking up for what I believe. Nobody`s forcing you to give up your beliefs, right?

    I also don`t believe all my comments are me `whinnying` (I didn`t know that was a word...but I`ll happily speak the language of my attacker). 99% of my comments are well within place. If you don`t like someone arguing against you then don`t argue. Simple.

    And FloridaSnow, don`t even start. You`ve been reading my comments wrong. Come back when you can accept my side of the argument and actually read what I say. I`m tired of people guessing what I`m saying and not actually reading.

    Just so you know, I`m not going to `give up`. I still firmly believe that drugs should remain illegal, and legalising them is backing down to criminals.

    what the hell lol you tell me to accept your side of the argument when haven`t even read mine? legalizing is backing down when its putting the drug into regulation? Right now we have no regulation of illegal drugs which is what created all the crime. Instead of making it illegal and putting it into the hands of legit bussinesses...you`d rather keep it illegal and in the hands of criminals? I`ve read your posts agian and you`ve had nothing on marijuana itself. You just talk about how it "fuel gangs", which as I just said, would be gone if it was legal.

    "Instead of making it illegal and putting it into the hands of legit bussinesses...you`d rather keep it illegal and in the hands of criminals?"

    The criminals are the ones breaking the law. They`re not `meant to` have the drugs, right? The problem would also go away if the dealers quit and got proper jobs and beacame functioning members of society.

    Why should we change laws just to suit you? Again, where do we draw the line? Why not just legalise everything?

    Google something called the `slippery slope syndrome`, hopefully you`ll understand where I`m coming from.

    And for the record, I do understand the point you`re arguing, I just don`t agree that we should let criminals change the law to suit them. It takes away the meaning of law and it WILL spiral out of control.

    You are still talking about drugs in general, your posts have nothing to do with marijuana itself, cigarettes are legal, and they have more dangerous chemicals in it, and yet, cannabis is still illegal. Marijuana never got a fair trial. When the government first heard about it, people were saying "it will make you kill your brother!" and "It makes negros think there as good as white people!" The legality of it was based on racism and lies. And just because a few irresponsible people are using it for the fuel for gangs and not for their own personal use, then that doesn`t mean all stoners should be stereotyped for fueling gangs and causing violence. And no one, while under the influence of marijuana has committed a violent crime. Please give evidence that marijuana alone is fueling ganges not just drugs in general.

    We are not criminals and the only reason stoners are considered criminals is because of a few racist guys lying about marijuana to make it illegal. If those guys didn`t exist, then stoners wouldn`t be considered criminals.

    This is exactly what I`m talking about...and if you paid any attention you would have read that I do agree there are upstanding members of society who use, or have used, cannibis. But you`re not listening into what I say when I argue that you can`t have some laws for some people, and other laws for others. It makes things worse, logic says so.

    I don`t what laws for some people and other laws for others. I just want it legal! It shouldn`t have been illegal in the first place, and people will still continue to abuse, legal or not. Its just not fair for the rest of us who aren`t abusing it. And making it legal won`t make a difference in gangs getting access to it, because, well, its a plant... its not that hard to grow it.

    I think we can put it down to both of us having different experiences with weed...you see it as a plant which is fun to smoke now and again and get high. I see it as an illegal drug which has offshooting crimes.

    We`re not gonna change each others minds (not that I want to). So this is my last comment on this subject...nice debatng with you :-)

    Old_school. Totally agree with you, its should never have been illegal. and most of the harms come directly from it being illegal.
