It affects people differently, also depends on the type of weed and amount of potency (the more it smells, the more it's probably "good," is my understanding)

I smoked a little for a bit

then I smoked what I did for a week and much more in one night:

My body stopped functioning....Except my legs would float in the air and start rotating one way, then the other. I couldn't stop it. I'd have siezures. I woke up the next day feeling horrible, I couldn't walk even hours later.

2nd major experience: I hellucinated and saw things on my television screen.

It seems fun when you start. But it gets out of hand really fast. No physical addiction, bt there is a mental one. Do it enough and it'll consume your thoughts, even to the point of where you may be semi-suicidal for doing it in the first place.

Or if your like my friends: Your life revovles around it. You don't sleep. You don't eat, you don't wake up, go to class, work, etc, etc, unless your stoned. ANYONE WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T GET DEPENDENT ON IT IS LIEING.

I wish I never did it. It opened a doorway to more things like LSD and Xtasy. Combined, I still sometimes see things that aren't there. If you have to do anything, yes weed would be the less of all evils.

But it is illegal, and eventually you will be caught. Or, karma will strike. I dont' believe pot smoking is good karma, feels good now, but eventually be it days or years, you will regret it.

Do not start.

It's not, in my mind, as bad as cigerettes and even drinking. But SMOKE IN YOUR LUNGS = BAD.

If you want lung cancer, then by all means do it

Also: You CAN stone yourself stupid. Enough of it will make your brain waves change, I find I am having severe memory loss lately, and I can say before weed I remembered a lot more.

Beyond that, no one has died from it, you can't OD


It isn't the worse thing to do.

But I would advise strongly against it. It's something you can't understand until it happens. Like being a DL, no one can understand totally unless they have gone though it.

But if your choice is diapers or weed: Choose diapers.

I beg you....

Weed has destroyed my life and many others

It will destroy your cognitive function if you smoke weed over a long period of time. (A decade of weed smoking approx.)

It's not as addictive as other drugs. If you can't get it, you eat, you sleep, forget about it. And you try the next day. Maybe. Social addiction is possible however. It is to a slight extent physical too.


If mixed with tobacco, it can also cause lung cancer.



Balance the facts and make your choice. I'm not condemning it, but think before you try.

I'd recommend that you don't start taking any drug, but I do believe what people say about weed (especially in America) is exaggerated.

Smoking it in large quantities over a long period of time is not good. And weed has been shown to make people more paranoid and in some cases leads to schizophrenia (not very common though).

With that said, I don't think there's anything wrong with the odd joint every now and then. I think of it the same way as I do alcohol: harmful if you have too much or don't know your limits, but enjoyable if enjoyed responsibly.

Not all true!!
Marijuana is one of the least harmfull drugs. Keep in mind there are more addicting and potentially harmfull drugs in stuff that people consume everyday. Just a partial list: Coffee, tea, caffinated pop and chocolate all have caffeine which is physically addicting, and potentially fatal in high doses, and these are all legal. Governments allow pop companies to add it to pop, and pop is marketed to children.
You do not have to mix tobbacco with weed to get lung cancer, it does not matter what you smoke. It's the smoke that has the carcinogens in it and smoking weed alone may do it. If you don't want to run the risk of getting lung cancer, then don't smoke anything. There are many ways to consume weed without the smoke like, vaporizers and baked goods or just eat it.
Gateway to hard drugs? Only if you want it to be, there is no reason why a person can't just only consume marijuana on occasion and not do other drugs.
I think my cognative functions are still working well even at this time of the morning, and I've only had half a coffee so far, so, so much for the first quoted statement. Totally false!!
If you sit around smoking weed all day, you will not be productive, but that is true with any drug.
Most of the problems attributed to drug use are the result of prohibition, and the war on drugs. With any type of war there will be collateral damage, only with this war, the damage is on your own citizens. Demand Peace!!!!
If weed were legal, it would have a value similar to many other agricultural products, since it is quite easy to grow.
I am not encouraging you to decide one way or the other, thats up to you. Think for yourself, Do not believe any one source of info, collect info from many sources, and use it to form an informed opinion that is right for you.
If you have questions feel free to contact me.

While marijuana does have some legitimate applications (treating glaucoma and chemo-related appetite loss), the main problem I see with the drug is that it is completely unregulated and has no quality control. For instance, there is nothing stopping a drug dealer from "augmenting" a batch of weed with PCP or other more dangerous drugs (and that kind of thing happens all the time!) If marijuana was regulated by the FDA and taxed like cigarettes, the government would have a tidy source of income overnight.

That said, abuse of marijuana does seem to radically reduce the user's cognitive capabilities. There's a huge difference between someone who smokes pot a few times a year recreationally and the person who lights up every single day. Put simply, the latter type of user becomes a lazy, giggling, non-working fool that never moves out of his parents' basement. The daily user is someone who loses the ability to plan more than a week ahead and can't remember anything that happened more than a week ago. They live their life in a haze. People in their early 20s shout NOT find Teletubbies to be intellectually-stimulating entertainment!

So... as someone who works in law enforcement , I can say that the *occasional* user doesn't seemed to be significantly harmed by marijuana use, but the daily user is someone whose life basically goes nowhere -- ever. They just stop progressing. Seeing 40-year-olds who still act like their 15 is just downright irritating after a while.

I have a friend who smokes it, and most off his friends do. He tried to get me to just try a cigarett, and i just refused. They were going on and on trying to borrow money to go get more...and off course, in denial they are addicted.

Don't start it, or your bank will go down to 0 :eek:

Sorry Mage, but that seems to be a lot of stereotypical propaganda.
Quality control? Don't buy from a dealer, grow your own!! You'll save loads of cash.
Don't let the bottom of the barrel define your opinion. Many people who use regularly are very successfull, families, businesses, etc. They just don't advertise because law enforcement is very narrow minded, and does not have much contact with successfull people. Law enforcement personell always has to deal with the worst of society, and that colours opinion on the subject.
If a person is lazy and sits around their parents basement, it very likely is not because of marijuana use, that person would be lazy even without pot.

It's just the most awful thing ever. I saw on the TV that if I smoke it i'll think I can fly and i'll go jump out a window and then my parents will cry at the funeral and go "IF ONLY HE NEVER TRIED WEED! OH WHYYYYYY?????????????????????????"

Plus if it was ever decriminalized and properly taxed, it would not only drive many inmates out of prison, but would also make the government a lot of money with which they could pay off debt or fund other things, not to mention the money saved with the "Evil Drug Dealers(tm)" and their hippy marijuana no longer in the prisons.

But we can't have that. High debt and a massive prison population is absolutely necessary for the U.S.A. It's worked so good this far...... hasn't it?...... right?.......anyone?.......

It's actually less addictive and less harmful than alcohol. What's more, it's great fun.

I will say this: I talk from my heart here, so bear with me.

I love weed. Weed is sometimes my best friend. Weed has sometimes helped me fall asleep when I couldn't and let me relax when I was stressed.

Now: Do I say it is good for you?

Woah! No. I have no clue. No one really does. There are AT LEAST 420 (Yes, 4/20, very funny) chemicals in marijuana. Did I say known chemicals? No. The reason I did not say known is because scientists do not know what more than half of these chemicals do to your body or what they can do to your brain in the long run. It would be very irrational to legalize marijuana just because of that fact. To not know what 420 chemicals are doing in your body? Even if they are good? Really?

I mean listen, there are very good uses for marijuana and all of you who say that it is used for medical purposes- you are kind of right. Only certain chemicals which are extracted are used, not the whole plant.

Oh and many people have this idea that marijuana is not physically addictive but I believe it to be like anything addicting. I play videogames, if I had the chance I would play them every day and I would make a job out of it if I could. Videogames for me are basically an addiction. I know when I play them, I am in my own world. I know that I am happy when I play videogames and I want that feeling all the time. Will I play videogames all day? I would if I could, but probably not. Same for being high. Your body doesn't feel the effects afterward maybe, but your mind still remembers how good you felt when you were high, so why wouldn't you want to do it again? I am not saying you will but I still find it a bit addicting.

Do some research guys, learn some facts, don't just say "Legalize marijuana cuz I lOvez it!" It really is not a smart thing to d with any subject.

I still do say that people should try things at least once though, and I like it, but it really effect people differently, so watch out.

Read Naked Lunch by William Burroughs. The extended notes on drugs ranging from nutmeg to heroin are useful too. He also makes some good points/tosses in details about marijuana, one of them which you denied. (See quote)

I've based my opinions on drugs from this man (also some personal encounters with them, although I haven't touched anything beyond coffee and cigarettes for a long time), and I do believe he knows a lot more than both of us, kind sir. We should both take a step back and think for a moment here. How can something that produces odd side effects not be bad in the long run?


My intentions are not offensive, merely pointing out we should both respect the opinions of someone who's been in deep **** with substances. Sorry if I came off as mocking.

Also, good point about the lung cancer part. I'll take back what I said there.

Finally, as previously said, I do not condemn drug use. I merely believe people must take into account the negative aspects too.

Every mans self-medication is also a form of self-destruction

Yes, because drug dealers hate money.
No drug dealer would be stupid enough to soak mj in PCP or lace it with crack cocaine. That doesn't happen unless the dealer wants to loose money. Not only is it a waste of a perfectly sellable drug, it's also quite a bit more expensive than mj. Sorry, I just hate that misconception.

Well i always LOL HARD when some one says there could be PCP in weed....right the dealer was feeling so generous he gave you a free drug that costs twice and a half as much as weed.

Weed has actually been shown in lab tests to slow even halt the spread of cancer.(i have sources should anyone want them)

You can eliminate all smoke related maladies by vaping(for more info send me a pm)

While it does effects everyone difference you usally won't freak out too bad(there is a 1 in 100,000 chance you could be hypersensitive to thc but all that means is you take an extremely small ammount)

Erowid
Above link will pretty much have anything you need to know
I don't know where you got this from, and I'd hate to be a nit-picker, but the wording is kind of strong. Weed won't 'destroy' anyone's cognitive function. There are plenty of people (many of them famous) who have been smoking moderately for decades that are still going strong.
Willie nelson has smoked more weed than everyone on this forum combined and hes still going strong.

Also: You CAN stone yourself stupid. Enough of it will make your brain waves change, I find I am having severe memory loss lately, and I can say before weed I remembered a lot more.
This is complete Bs. Weed cannot alter your brain waves( i have sources here also). Sever memory loss is most likely caused by a pre-existing condition if it does occur.

Well, it's certainly one of the least harmful drugs out there...however, the strains available are more potent than they used to be and even just using it once can slightly increase the risk of mental illness. The more you smoke, the greater the risk, also it is very high in tar. Though the tar is negated if you consume it in certain ways.

It's like radioactivity. There is no "safe" level, just levels of acceptable and unacceptable risk depending on how much you consume.

That just means people consume less to get the same effects making it more healthy than it used to be.

and even just using it once can slightly increase the risk of mental illness
.
Weed DOES NOT cuase mental illness it can make a minor one worse but other than that your info is fear mongering bs.
The more you smoke, the greater the risk, also it is very high in tar. Though the tar is negated if you consume it in certain ways.
BS. There is actually less tar in weed than there is in cigarettes(i have source here as well)Thc has even been shown to halt/slow the spread of cancer.

It's like radioactivity. There is no "safe" level, just levels of acceptable and unacceptable risk depending on how much you consume.
Not even close but good try. There is no dangerous amount of weed. Show me one radioactive element that is safe in any amount.(good luck with that.)

I don't think weed is all that bad. Certainly nowhere close to the demonic image given by the government. I'm just not a huge fan of the stuff. It doesn't have much of an effect on me unless I combine it with drinking, and then it causes me to drink more and increases any amnesia I might have that night. It does seem to relieve or at least lessen the headaches I get sometimes, although I have never used it explicitly for that purpose. I might eventually need to resort to that since I have to sometimes take nearly toxic doses of acetomenophine or ibuprofen (and toxicity is at a surprisingly low dose over a 24 hour period with both), and considering how much alcohol I drink I am not doing any good for my liver with those over the counter painkillers.

I think alcohol and tobacco should be a bigger concern than marijuana is. Alcohol is easy to overdose on and sufficiently lowers inhibitions well before becoming toxic that it becomes too easy to make decisions that can harm or kill one's self or others. Tobacco is a rather strong mind-altering substance and in high enough doses is a hallucinogen. And as everyone knows it is very addictive. The tobacco industry probably has the most to fear if marijuana is legalized since marijuana has fewer side effects and is less addictive than tobacco, and for most people has a more pleasant "high" without the withdrawal effects.
