  • Its not good for your brain chemistry. My brother got psychosis from it. It came out of no where we didn’t know where it came from cause no one in our family had it but the several doctors explained that we can have the psychosis gene in us TURNED OFF. And smoking weed can cause or trigger the gene to turn on.

  • I would like to point out that the study showing lower IQs for people that smoked continuously between the ages of 12-30 only showed correlation, not causation.
    Personally, I see that as people of lower IQs are more likely to try drugs at a young age despite the alleged risks.

  • Now this is evidence why it's completely bs that cigarettes and alcohol are legal and pot is illegal. Ciggarettes to so much damage, MUCH more damage than pot ever will. Alcohol symptoms can be violent depending on the person and it's of course never good for your body. Now I'm not demeaning use of either one, I'm just saying it's kind of idiotic that weed is illegal in most places when those two get off free yknow?

  • Research clearly shows that marijuana has the potential to cause problems in daily life. A study of 129 college students found that, among those who smoked the drug at least 27 of the 30 days before being surveyed, critical skills related to attention, memory, and learning were seriously diminished. A study of postal workers found that employees who tested positive for marijuana had 55% more accidents, 85% more injuries and a 75% increase in being absent from work.

    In Australia, a study found that cannabis intoxication was responsible for 4.3% of driver fatalities.

  • I think weed is healthy & helps people! I say let people do whatever the hell they want instead of making it illegal. If they want to smoke weed or whatever go ahead. Freedom of choice! It’s there lives. How can you dictate someone else’s life? People only live once, might as well enjoy your time

    The cupcake analogy is nice. Except the cupcakes in this scenario are zero calorie cupcakes with an antioxidant / neuroprotective icing on them according to the medical patent filed by the American Department of Health and Human Services ( aka the US government ).
    https://www.google.ca/patents/US6630507
    U.S. Patent Publication number US6630507 B1

    I'm not saying weed cures cancer. I'm saying the government filed a patent on weed for treating cancer. The patent says weed has neuro-protective and anti-oxidant effects which can be a very useful tool when fighting cancer. This is very hypocritical because the government has also stated that weed is a schedule one drug with absolutely no known medical value.

  • I've never smoked anything

  • Reason why I dont do any drug – I'm stronger than that and dont need shit to make me feel happier and better life is the way it is im training myself to get mentally stronger everyday to understand and handle life 😐 I think anyone who uses weed needs it for a medical reason not because u r stressed out be strong or get strong weak people will not survive in the modern day world

  • Weed is not the problem it's the things you mix with weed. For example if we take the studies done by schools and shit. They test individual people by random and let them consume weed but when the patients go home they have no idea what they are using or eating that could lead weed of its path and make it bad.

  • I do wanna smoke again but I am so afraid to be brainfucked for a whole week again. Seriously I couldn't find the way home and I didn't know my own identity for 4 days. Even now I don't know what actually happened to me back then. One guy told me deprelazation, but I am not sure about that because DP lasts for years. Onother guy said it just might lowered my anandime states because I had smoked to much, which I did. I smoked 3 says in straight and took a lot of cbd-oil and I had a very good feeling day one and two but day three I disappeared and didn't know my existence for 4 days. But now I am 100% normal againt. Have this happened to someone else? Please what happened to me

  • Marijuana is not good, but is AWESOMELY GOOD for you. Smoke everyday but do not do too much because anything too much is not good for you. Too much fun is also not good for you because who will pay the bills?. Have balance in life, you will be alright. Life is all about the BALANCE. ✌🏻
