It's called an addiction. If you see such an addiction as a problem, then realizing it is the start of your problem. If this is not a problem, then have fun!

I'm sure I'll get rated down into oblivion, but you do realize how ignorant of a statement this is correct? Like the fact that alcoholic beverages are legal, yet have far more harmful effects on the human body and brain. Like the fact that the number of accidents caused by driver's under the influence is 50:1 of those using marijuana. Or the fact that cigarettes are legal yet contain more additives and chemicals than any other legal substance on the planet.

People are so ridiculously misinformed on the effects of marijuana use that it is very aggrivating. It has been PROVEN to help alleviate pain in cancer patients, as well as help relieve migraines, stomach pains, glaucoma, among many other ailments. Although the smoke from marijuana IS harmful, no evidence of cancers or emphysema have been associated with repeated use. In fact, since most marijuana is sold in its pure, untampered form, it contains far less chemicals than your average cigarette, cigar, or dip.

It has also been proven to not cause insanity or permanent mental illness or memory loss (which was a part of the reason it was made illegal due to propaganda advertising). In fact, although there have been deaths related to excessive marijuana use, the number is so exceedingly low that no conclusive evidence can be found to link marijuana usage to... well, anything really.

Personally, I do not feel there has been enough testing done to conclusively say that there are NO harmful properties to it, but I think it is narrow-minded to discount someone's credibility or make assumptions about something that has been given a really bad rap thanks to a broken government.

While this is supported by most health professionals and nearly all research, and as a health professional I certainly agree, this struck me as a bit of a lolvereaction.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Meh, I'm just sick of the bad press marijuana gets thanks to propaganda and fear campaigns in the 30's and 40's. People have become so disillusioned about marijuana, its effects, and its uses that I like to try and inform people. Personally, I myself thought the same way about it until a few years ago when someone actually pointed me in the direction of the hundreds of case studies and formal research done by top universities that have shown no ill effects from it. Plus, it amuses me to get rated down for expressing an opinion logically... reminds why I wish these forums didn't have ratings... too many people who just don't agree with someone and automatically go for the rate down button instead of expressing their opinion. I admit, I do it occasionally too which is why I wish it dissappeared.

I completely agree with Bartel. I find people who make comments such as Moxley are immensely misinformed & likely very close minded individuals.

The scattered randomness found throughout the OP's posts on Alla way more likely contributed to other factors than marijuana, which I'm sure is why he made that comment. And Aurelius, no surprise you had to jump on that bandwagon.

There was a great commercial that used to air on local TV a couple of years back. It was a young kid talking about his older brother and how his older brother smokes pot. As he's talking, he's walking down to the basement. He's saying that his brother smokes pot but he doesn't break into cars or steal or beat people up and then he goes into the room where his brother is and it's all hazy with smoke with his brother sitting there on the couch just kind of staring around and the kid says, "Come to think of it, he doesn't do much of anything."

People who smoke pot occasionally don't cause any concern for me. People who smoke pot continuously might need to talk to someone. Doesn't matter if pot cures AIDS, if you haven't got AIDS you can't list its AIDS curative powers as a reason for you to smoke it. All of these extended diatribes in defense of pot have been put together and regurgitated by pot smokers for years to justify what doesn't need to be justified when done as an occasional thing. As with anything done to excess it raises certain concerns as a symptom of larger and more harmful issues, and chronic pot smoking frequently serves to prevent a person from dealing with those issues because they're just too **** comfortable while they're stoned. Take the pot away, however, and they typically have a hard time functioning. Generalizations, of course, which allow for exceptions to the rule. Which is why I didn't leap all over the "lololpotsmokinretard" bandwagon. Poke a little fun? Sure.

My experience is that when someone overreacts to defend something, it's usually because they're ashamed of something or feel like they're either being judged or about to be judged. Maybe a little paranoid? Dunno. Don't much care, either.

I didn't take it as a bad thing against pot at all. I took it as a "further verfitication that people who mention they are getting high in order too look cool, most often do not" kinda thing. In which case it is. And the post is hilarious in that aspect.

It is hilarious how many people are brainwashed by the U.S. government. It's hilarious and disgusting at the same time.

For those morons that think weed is so freakin back watch this documentary. Chances are you are American so fortunately this documentary looks almost directly at the American views on weed.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zI7G6KvkhQ

The most interesting point about this is how Weed cannot be patented as a pharmacudical since it's a natural plant. Therefore Pharmacudical companies cannot profit from it. And guess what...Pharmacudical companies are the NUMBER ONE most profitable industry in the U.S. So just think how much of an influence they have on the white house? Also 70% of American prisons are privately owned. And guess what? Guess how many people in prison are there for marijuana use? I know it all sounds crazy, but this is what the American government is all about. Money money money oil money oil money money money.

"Pharmacudical companies do NOT want you growing your own medicine."

"Marijuana fiber is the STRONGEST natural fiber in the world"

"Marijuana is worth more - ounce for ounce - than gold"

"How can Americans profit from people being in prison?" <===that's @#%^ed up.

edit: I am Canadian. Proud to be Canadian. And if "American" was a race, I'd be a racist ****** United States disgusts me in so many ways and on so many levels.

I'm not ashamed of anything. I'm just informed. If I can help inform others, I will do so. It's very easy to chime in on something and egg on the stereotypes, which is what I felt like was happening here. Even if I WAS a pot smoker, why would I be ashamed? Standing up for something I believe is right and where scientific data has been accumulated to support it makes me ashamed? Apparently we have very different definitions of that...

Extracting the total context of your post, I can see where you're coming from. Conversely, that commercial is a complete gross exaggeration of the effects of weed. You would only feel that stoned the first few times you smoked it, most other times you get a "buzz". For the purpose of this conversation, let's equate "Stoned" as equal to "Drunk" (which they are not, but it will help illustrate the point). Once you smoke moderately, or occasionally, you will likely not get "Stoned" from smoking, but rather you will get a buzz, much like when you have a few beers.

That commercial is a lie. I would consider myself a frequent smoker, though I don't "re-up" everytime my supply is low, but rather might wait a couple weeks to a month, with no issues at all. I am intelligent, motivationally driven (ahh, the irony), and guess what, most of my friends & family are the same way. My point - the bulk of people I know are the same way, NOTHING like an alcoholic, crackhead, pill addict, etc.

And as for trying to defend something as if people who smoke are ashamed, that really shows where you are out of touch - potheads, if you will, are VERY proud! We want people to know, we want to share our beautiful crop with a fellow member, all those things. Completely different than other remedies.

Take it for what you will. Like yourself, I don't care much, either.
