    not even close.
    the 1st 3 are before and after, but weed is supposedly "during". which isn`t even true, since weed doesn`t make you smile. If anything, that would be heroin`s pic, since it`s heroin that makes you happy.

    If the bottom guy is also stupid as a block of wood. I knew a kid who started smoking weed regularly in high school and pretty much became the dumbest person I ever knew 4-5 years later. He has no attention span and his response to 90% of things he hears is "that`s awesome"

    Weed doesn`t make you smile?

    However, smoking regularly while at high school will permanantly reduce your intelligence. Once you get to about 18 it doesn`t.

    Wait until college, youngsters.

    No, weed doesn`t make you smile, no more than alcohol or meth does. If you claim that weed makes you smile then it wasn`t weed you were smoking.
    being high =/= smiling

    Never tried meth but over the decades weed has made me smile. And giggle, but I`m trying to cut that out as it`s undignified at my age.

    If we are to use the same measuring stick on all pictures, ie. abuse of a substance, weed does have the detrimental effects they tried to scare you with back in junior high, stupidity, hallucinations and rarely psychosis.

    Not to mention that THC stays in your fat cells after you`ve stopped using it.

    @Tiredofnicks, Researchers found that weed does not cause stupidity, you do perform a little worse while high, but it`s not permanent, but that`s obvious. It doesn`t cause hallucinations, obviously you either never smoked weed or someone put something else in yours. Psychosis is extremely rare, but it also comes with mild symptoms before it appears, if weed was legalized it would be easier to warm from it and prevent further cases.

    NNoamfer: That was likely a short-term study, a long-term one showed that if smoked at levels that can be called abusive and during the time the brain was still growing (up to about 25 years old) it reduced memory capacity and processing speed.

    @LordJim
    Alchohol doesn`t make me smile either and I find myself smiling more while drunk. The same is true for weed. However, neither of those drugs make you smile. You can be sad while high/drunk as well.

    "It throws me int severe panick attacks.. I havnt touched the stuff in years.So personally I can`t do it.."

    That paranoia stems from the fear of reprisal (police) though, not the weed itself. Like any drug, it`s best used in an environment that makes you feel safe.

    poo I`d be nervous as poo too if I lived in a country that will put you in the same place as rapists and murderers.

    Wow, so much FAIL in these comments! Isn`t it great that so many IABers are certified experts in literally everything? Aren`t we lucky to have such a valuable brain-trust at our fingertips? Sheesh!

    Canoas,

    You can indeed be sad while high, but with a little practice you shift into melancholy while dodging maudlin.Then you swing by the poetry shelf and take your chances. What?

    @Pinkminx, I`m the same. Though it was once tolerable for me at some point it started affecting me adversely with increased disuse. So much so that the last time I smoked I fell into mortal fear over a conceived spiritual illness that was plaguing me, by my perception, to death. Hash, on the other hand, does not affect me in this way though it has been some years since I`ve casually partaken in either.

    @LordJim - I have to agree with you about waiting until you`re older. During my formative years I would only occasionally take a few puffs here & there at parties but never really got into habitually smoking. That all started after I got out of the Marines, it was a nice release for me and also helped me through some difficult times. (Recent studies have shown it`s better than most commonly prescribed meds to treat the anxiety, aggression and insomnia associated with PTSD) I still have a very good memory and if I`ve noticed anything, it seems that now my memory is better than when I was in my teens/early 20`s. I too know a few people who have been smoking since they were teens and are dumber than a box of rocks, but some of them were like that before they even started smoking, now they just have an excuse as to why they`re idiots.

    @chalket
    most of it is just common knowledge. effects of drug use are pretty easy to find and there are a poo ton of studies on it. if you find it amazing that other people know about it maybe you should spend more time educating yourself.

    Judging from your comments here, you are the one in need of education.
