Mushrooms are a cure all, and though pot has many benefits it's still just a weed. You really wanna trust you psyche to something that grows everywhere? No thank you.

Weed is the only thing that really helps my anxiety. It makes me better at everything as a result too. This won't be the same for everyone, obviously, but it's great for me. Gotta be careful though with street weed. So much weed is laced with synthetic cannabinoids now days that you'd never believe it, and THAT will destroy your mind and body. I'm so fucked from that shit, it's actually the main cause of my anxiety in the first place. Take that for what you will.

Most of the teenagers I know are sober most of the time, but anyway try not to smoke too much otherwise youll feel just as awful lol

Anything you smoke is bad for your lungs.

Potheads tout THCs anti-cancer properties while not realizing that doesn't even come near to touching the various carcinogens released when you burn it. So yeah, it's better than smoking cigarettes, but it's still stupid.

Secondly, it affects short term memory. This is why potheads are very forgetful, and can't always maintain a conversation...or even recall a phone number they JUST looked up.

Thirdly, it demotivates you. Potheads often tout that doctors and lawyers and other successful people smoke pot. This statement is true, but is only a half-truth. They fail to realize that firstly, these people don't smoke it as much as your average pothead. Secondly, these people are smart enough to pull it off. And finally that these people aren't average potheads, as your average pothead works a dead-end job flipping burgers and taking out the trash.

Of special consideration is also that it has bad effects on the developing brain. If you aren't 20 yet you should avoid it at all costs...no worries, there are still plenty of years to burn those braincells after that point if you want to try it then. But give the poor organ a fighting chance.

I have smoked pot myself for many years. Laid off it when I got serious about school and my GPA went from 2.0 to 3.85. Of the 40 or so people I hung around with back home who were potheads, only TWO of them are successful now...and one of them had to lay off it completely to do so. All the others are doing the exact same thing they were in high school, a majority of them still living with their freaking parents.

That's not to say that pot itself is responsible. Remember after all the Doctors and Lawyers, yada yada yada. It's not so much that pot inherently makes you worthless.

It's that worthless people tend to smoke pot.

If you want to smoke weed wait until you're older and your body has stopped developing, so like 24. In the meantime take salt baths, burn incense, pay for massages (whole hell of a lot cheaper than weed), go on nature walks, fish, etc.

No need to get hooked on any kind of substance while you're young.

So, now I use it less. Mostly after work and a couple of beers. With my friends, and a small group though. Everything is just fine, fwi I started smoking at 13

I don't know if weed CAUSES anxiety, but either way I wouldn't recommend it. Social anxiety can make you freeze up in public and make you try to perfect your words in order to prevent people from getting the wrong idea. For me it just took practice and motivation from role models, and now I talk better than most people in public, but the second you tell yourself "oh my god I have anxiety" you're done. You can't have a depressive perspective, you gotta be positive. That really goes for anything in life.

Most of my anxiety is just a bunch of silly rituals and superstitions that really don't make sense. It bothers me a lot.

Yes, the smoking of weed is a criminal act which funds and supports criminals.

I smoked occasionally before uni and enjoyed getting high. Carried on in uni until I had a horrible panic attack (which I didn't even know could happen, I guess not knowing made it 100x worse because I didn't understand what was happening). Since then every time I smoke (which isn't that often at all anymore) i'm always a bit anxious it will happen again (and it has, but only once since the first time). I don't really enjoy smoking weed like I did before because the fear of another panic attack is always on my mind, and that fear is made worse by the weed.

give it a try but I doubt it will make your anxiety any better

This is sound advice.

Also, marijuana can definitely be a gateway drug. It was for me and all of my friends; and the substances we moved on to were not things that people in their late teens should be forming habits around. Thankfully, for the most part, my close friends and I have moved out of such habits... though this was a very prolonged, painful process.

I'm a teenager so I think it's pretty strange I haven't been smoking weed anyway.

Simply the most retarded thing I've read all day.

Weed will not fix anxiety problems. The best it will ever do is give you a temporary obliviousness during which you are also rendered incapable of doing other things without fucking everything up.
If you have anxiety problems, the solution is to fix whatever is causing your anxiety, not start experimenting with herbs while ignoring the actual problem.

It's not so much that weed itself is a gateway drug, but the community of smokers who do other things, and realizing that you've been lied to about drugs your whole life. Really any and every drug can be considered a gateway drug. If weed were legal and schools stopped lying to us, I guarantee many less people would branch out.

If one experiences anxiety when they stop smoking weed, but they didn't experience it when they first started smoking weed, that sounds like withdrawl.

Right. So, in other words, smoking weed can lead to doing much worse things. It did for me, but it might not for other people.

As for other drugs acting as an effective gateway... meh. If I started off using oxycodone daily as opposed to weed, I probably would've just moved right on to heroin and then would have been dead within a month. Weed is an effective gateway drug (compared to other drugs) because it is not physically addicting.

If weed were legal and schools stopped lying to us, I guarantee many less people would branch out.

I agree with the first part, but I can't think of a single time when I was in school that I felt I was "lied to" about the effects of any drug. Most of my teachers were rather realistic people. Though, I do agree that drug education could be handled differently.

Right off the bat I have to say that my main concern is the paranoia that weed could potentially cause. I haven't smoked it myself, but it is known that weed can lead to paranoia while under its spell. Obviously not good for someone who has anxiety. Now, the effects of weed can vary from person-to-person, so it's hard to predict how it will effect you. Could help, could hurt. Just remember that while you're high it may be feel good, but when it you lose the high the sky comes falling back down to crush you under its weight. Getting high won't make the problem go away, and it could potentially make a harsh reality feel unbearably harsher when you go from such an elevated state back down to the previous state you were in.

I know for a fact that I was never 'taught' any of this nonsense in school. I have heard plenty of these stories, but they weren't through any of my teachers.

Nevertheless, I sincerely feel bad for people that have had this shit presented to them as factual, especially if this happened in any decade following the 1960s.

Also, check the DEA's website and you'll see they're posting a lot of that as fact. It's disgusting, but since the 80s with DARE being started in schools, this has been nothing new. With the introduction of the internet, though, people can finally do their own research, and this has led to DARE being completely counter-productive.
