    No, you're wrong. I've had a grand total of maybe 5 or 6 joints in my entire life. Enough to know what I'm talking about, but fairly obviously I'm in no way addicted. Its not at all like what some people like to portray it as.

    WOW. Can you say propaganda?

    It's a proven fact that marijuana is not chemically addictive. It can be emotionally addictive though, just like any other thing that is enjoyable to do.

    I'm also pretty sure that marijuana doesn't contain more tar than cigarettes - most likely much less. pot smoke doesn't stay in clothing, cigarette smoke does.

    I'm not going to say that marijuana isn't bad for the lungs and can't cause cancer, but I'd smoke pot over cigarettes any day of the week.

    And the side affects listed for pot aren't very accurate. Yes you get an increased appetite (munchies!), and I've gotten a headache or two from smoking. But I've never gotten nauseas or a feeling of paranoia.

    I'm not going to comment on the rest of it, but one more thing listed there : "Changes in reproductive organs". I'm guessing this is referring to the age old tale that pot decreases sperm count... BULL****.

    2) Lack of responsibilty/intelligence on the part of the user. i.e. ODing, mixing incorrectly, etc. This isnt the drugs fault either. I work with all kinds of deadly tools all day long. If I was a retard, I'd have chopped off all my appendages a long time ago and probably fallen to my death countless times. Fact is, I know my tools, and I know what I should and shouldn't do with them. So I'm still breathing, and I can count to five on each hand.
    Yeh, those computer are really dangerous with their razor sharp edges and u fall into one, you enter a massive void. Lucky I know my computer, too
    Please direct all complaints regarding this post to the nearest brick wall Have a nice day.

    It is possible to become addicted to pot... 5 or 6 joints may not do it for you... it may for others...

    I think it is wrong for you to say to many here who are young, that these things are OK, and that us "Born Agains " are full of snot and just trying to ruin your harmless fun.

    >To inform the ignoramus pot smokers who think theres nothing wrong with it or it doesnt affect the brain.<

    I have studied, researched, and used cannabis for YEARS now. I've been to every site on the Internet that has information on pot. I don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that I'm not physically dependent apon weed. So, sir, please stop saying that I am lest you shove your foot up your ass. Thankyou.

    >WOW. Can you say propaganda?<

    Seriously, he goes to the most notorious organization on the planet who is funded by a government who insists on ignoring medical research and common history facts, and who's known for spouting anti-drug of all kind propaganda, and then even tries to use it probably despite not having any first-hand experience with the substance. (Because if he did, he would know that a lot of that stuff is so blatantly wrong it's funny.)

    >I'm also pretty sure that marijuana doesn't contain more tar than cigarettes - most likely much less. pot smoke doesn't stay in clothing, cigarette smoke does.<

    Well, every source I've went to says that cannabis has more carcinogens than tobacco, something like 3 or 4 times as much. It's so hard to believe considering what you pointed out. But still, people typically smoke much LESS cannabis in one day than tobacco users smoke. In the end, weed is the safer route.

    >and I've gotten a headache or two from smoking. But I've never gotten nauseas or a feeling of paranoia.<

    Yeah, the headaches are simply because of the not-so-good-stuff in the smoke. Eat your plant, and you won't get headaches...so really, headaches is a side-affect of SMOKING not USING cannabis.

    And I've had a few paranoid/freaked out experiences on weed. I'm blaming one experience on it being laced (yet another reason to legalize) and the others on just damned fine weed.

    weed's not physically addictive... but it's still illegal.

    \Il*le"gal\, a. [Pref. il- not + legal: cf. F. ill['e]gal.] Not according to, or authorized by, law; specif., contrary to, or in violation of, human law; unlawful; illicit; hence, immoral; as, an illegal act; illegal trade.

    It's not. Read the history of cannabis in the United States, and you'll begin to see why the government has it out for weed.

    I'll give you a hint: it had to do with the industrial uses of hemp.

    >Yea, let's legalize pot! It worked for the Netherlands! Yea, that'll fix the problem.<

    I'm not sure what the status of the Netherlands is, but in many other parts of the world it is legal and regulated. The result is less crime overall, and more taxes to the government. It also eliminated shady drug dealers, thus taking the sole potheads away from the worse drugs that do the real damage. What's more, it lets the police and other law enforcement deal with the more important crimes...such as murder and rape.

    Look at Prohibition in the United States. There's one of the golden examples of the government trying to prohibit something that is never going to be orphaned.

    Edit: And another thing, if the reason why you think the Netherlands failed is because even after they decriminalized weed, usage DID NOT go down then you're missing the point of decriminalization altogether. People aren't going to stop smoking weed, I can guarantee you that. Just like people aren't going to stop drinking beer.

    Uhhhm.... [(your statement) ^ -1]

    Legal marijuana only makes it easier to acquire harder drugs...... the old dealers who once delt weed no longer have business, therefore move on to other drugs (you're only left with hard drugs)

    When marijuana is illegal, the social line of morality is that "tobacco=ok; weed=bad; ex=worse;" But once you take away the bad weed, the line gets bumped down a notch so that "weed=ok; ex=bad; crack=worse;"

    this thread sucks!

    Just because something is illegal doesn't mean it's wrong. Why do you think laws can be changed? Hell, up here in Canada they're talk about legalizing the stuff.

    I used to be totally against it... mainly because my parents planted into my head that drugs are BAD, WRONG and people who use them are LOSERS. I think some of you need to pull the bottle out of your mouth and at least try it before you decide to condemn it.

    I see people stroll into class stoned, driving around stoned, coming to play a hockey game stoned... these are BAD DECISIONS on the peoples part, the weed made no err.

    There's a HELL of a lot more wrong with alcohol then there is with weed. When's the last time you heard of someone die of weed poisoning? Ever woken up the next day after smoking up? Do you feel like ****? Not HALF as much as you would had you gotten hammered. I'd MUCH rather see weed in the hands of minors than alcohol. You do much crazier things while drunk then you do stoned.

    I don't have to shoot myself in the foot to know it's a bad idea.

    [sarcasm]Of course, weed couldn't possibly affect your reaction time.[/sarcasm] As I previously said, I could care less if you screw up your body with drugs. But, if you hop in a car (or put yourself in any other situation where you could hurt others), then I feel it is totally irresponsible of you. It's the equivalent to walking around with a loaded gun and the safety lock off. All it takes is a little something and baboom.
