    You can't overdose on weed. Only problems with weed are when you smoke it [which most people do], if you eat it [and you're sure it is just weed] you're 100% safe [unless you're allergic]. It's not toxic. I think alcohol might be physically addictive, too.
    I agree......the main problem with cannabis is ignorance and misinformation.......

    There are a few downfalls, but IMHO not as many as most vices that people use today.........there are definately less pitfalls with cannabis than alcohol.........

    I used to use "drugs" but haven't in quite a while (excepting for alcohol). I'm not going to say it's OK to do because it's very dangerous. But, I do believe that people should be allowed to do what they want to do (and suffer the concequences that come with it). I've seen many people do many more drugs than I ever did turn out fine, and people who did much less screw up their lives. Almost anything can be abused, it's how we use it that determines if it's good or bad.
    My only advice: think before you do something.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?

    But if weed were leagalized (it isnīt in Germany) it wouldnīt be that gateway-drug, because you can plant it easily, if you want.
    And further there wouldnīt be the financial problem.

    >illegal or not illegal...
    It alway depends on the culture.
    Cultures always accept those drugs which fit to them and are easily to produce.

    I am not saying that they go to other drugs because of the money I mean that they start trying other drugs just for the heck of it......after of course they started with weed. I mean I know a bunch of people that do weed and that doesn't make them any less my friends, it's just that once they start with it a lot of times they go to other much stronger drugs and then the troubles start.

    I disagree.......

    The only reason why people go on to harder drugs is that the dealer who sells a little puff also sells ecsatcy, speed, trips and the like.......to get cannabis you have to get exposed to other drugs and those that use them.....

    If there was some sort of progression......why doesnt alcohol progress into other drugs? - the reason.....cuz you dont have to come into contact with other drugs to consume alcohol.......

    Well I know some of the dealers and I don't think they force them to buy anything.......I mean I know the dealer that deals to this certain people.

    Thank you for proving my point, exactly they get exposed which in turn leads them to harder and stronger drugs.

    Well....no

    You said


    Weed is the gateway drug to some other more dangerous drugs
    I would say that its more the fact that weed is illegal that many people use it as a gateway drug......There's no direct side effect of weed that forces people to seek out more powerfull drugs

    What are the harmful effects, of manjuana?
    Marijuana is addictive (3); it adversely affects the immune system (4), leads to the use of other drugs, such as cocaine (5); it causes cancer, including cancer of the lungs, mouth, lip, and tongue (6).
    Marijuana also casues respiratory diseases (7) and mental disorders, such as schizophrenia and other psychoses, depression, panic attacks, hallucinations, paranoia, hostility, depersonalization, flashbacks, decreased cognitive performance, disconnected thought, delusions, and impaired memory (8). Since marijuana impairs coordination and judgment, it is a major cause of accidents (9). Babies born to women who smoke marijuana during pregnancy have an increased incidence of leukemia (10), low birth weight (11) and other abnormalities.
    All I have to say about this is.....it's your choice smoke responsibly

    Where did that quote come from?

    Half of it is rubbish....

    Half of those horrors are attributable to tobacco....

    The one about impaired judgement.....well that's a symptom with millions of prescribed drugs...

    And as for impaired memory....................................


    .....



    .....


    .....What were we talking about again?
