that's bullshit, you're completely sorted when you're on it. weed is between coffee and alcohol on the scale of 'how much does it fuck you up,' you're not going to have any serious problems smoking it often as a chillout evening thing. just like you wouldn't have any serious problems drinking coffee every morning other than not being able to wake up without it, if you smoke a joint every evening it might be difficult to unwind without it. it's not anything amazing or addictive, it's just the body getting used to using something else to alter your chilledness levels.

people who seriously think it will cause schizophrenia should only smoke it, the same research can be spun to say that people with schizophrenia are more likely to smoke weed, which is totally understandable too, it really doesn't fuck your mind up much and I would be surprised if there was any real danger of a normal person getting schizophrenia, which there isn't.

The lingo they use is Schizophrenic type syndroms.

If Weed is perfectly 100% safe, then why is it illegal??

Pussy I smoked weed for a year just about every weekend sometimes during the week days. And I quit cold turkey and had no second thoughts of going back.

Weed isn't addictive in the sense that you won't be able to stop doing it. It won't "hook" you in the sense that you suddenly need it, like nicotine or crack or heroin.

It IS addictive in the sense that if you spend a shitload of time stoned, you're going to be miserable when you suddenly stop being high.

If you spend numerous nights in a row going to sleep stoned, then suddenly try to sleep sober, you're going to have alot of trouble sleeping.

It's not hard to quit, it's just not fun.

Sorry, there is really no way to suddenly let yourself get to sleep easily after abruptly stopping all pot use. Only time will help. After a few days your sleeping schedule will get back to normal and you'll be feeling alright.

Keep the pot smoking to weekends and you should be fine.

because the government are retarded. i would accept that it probably isn't good for your lungs, but it shouldn't be illegal, it doesn't result in negative social consequences like alcohol related violence, alcohol can kill you, you can get addicted to tranquilisers you get prescribed, it shouldn't be illegal. you must know all that stuff about paper manufacturers lobbying the government to make hemp illegal, about white people not liking a drug black people usually took, and nowadays if a government said 'we'll make weed legal' people like you wouldn't vote for them - it's illegal because it has been for ages and it's a lot easier for it to be illegal than legal for the parties in power at the moment. the only people who want it illegal are drug dealers and governments getting money by playing on the war on drugs.

most research on weed has shown it to be considerably less dangerous than alcohol, which is legal. your argument doesn't work man.

No kidding, I could smoke up all week and go cold turkey until the next time I get the chance to smoke again. Its not addictive (regardless of what your health teacher told you).

that's bullshit,

Not entirely. It's just misleading.

you're completely sorted when you're on it. weed is between coffee and alcohol on the scale of 'how much does it fuck you up,' you're not going to have any serious problems smoking it often as a chillout evening thing.

"Serious problems" is subjective. The effects on your brain's ability to learn WILL last up to 24 hours after being high. The day after a night of smoking pot, instead of a hangover, you experience something I like to call "brain fizzing." It's a feeling of being a little bit scatterbrained, and it lasts for about a day. It's no serious problem, it's just a bit of a distracting feeling. One of the worst mistakes I made was getting high on a school night. The next day I found it hard to absorb information being told to me. It goes away after a day, though.

just like you wouldn't have any serious problems drinking coffee every morning other than not being able to wake up without it, if you smoke a joint every evening it might be difficult to unwind without it. it's not anything amazing or addictive, it's just the body getting used to using something else to alter your chilledness levels.

The problem is that people dont consider the impact of having your body used to it. Unless you really don't have anything to do with your life, being stoned or "fizzed" all the time is not good.


people who seriously think it will cause schizophrenia should only smoke it, the same research can be spun to say that people with schizophrenia are more likely to smoke weed, which is totally understandable too, it really doesn't fuck your mind up much and I would be surprised if there was any real danger of a normal person getting schizophrenia, which there isn't.

Marijuana doesn't cause schizophrenia, but it does make it appear earlier in people who would have otherwise develop it later in life. If you would have developed schizophrenia in your 20's, and you start smoking alot of weed when you're 13, there's a better chance of you developing it in your teens instead.

As for memory, your short-term memory is only fucked up while your high. For example, if you smoke a joint, you aren't going to forget your trip to Disney world or the Pythagorean theorum. But while you're high, you might have a hard time remembering what topping was on the pizza that you devoured.

when I get really really stoned then i might have a bit of a haze-over that is miles nicer than a hangover the next morning but it goes away after I have breakfast and go outside.

it's never stopped me from doing anything, I enjoy hanging around with people and playing music and listening to music when I'm stoned, I can study fine, I don't particularly want to play sports or anything so I don't see the problem.

there's a better chance of you developing it in your teens instead.

who knows, all the research is very skimpy. I would imagine a period of depression or a painful divorce or the death of a child is far more likely to cause schizophrenia, most weed smokers don't develop schizophrenia.

But while you're high, you might have a hard time remembering what topping was on the pizza that you devoured.

what is most noticeable is that you forget the storyline of the tv show you just watched. but i can still study high. a cup of coffee or anything sorts out the haze over if you can't focus the next day and it's far nicer than a hangover

long term cannabis smokers can usually handle themselves and focus when they're stoned, it has never hindered my abilities

Weed is only addictive if you don't have any life and it's the only thing you look forward to, or if it's laced with some shit.

If you're having any trouble getting off of pot then you must be either very weak willed or a big time stoner. Marijuana can be mentally addictive, but there are essentially no withdrawal symptoms if you stop doing it. That sucks about that girl too, I suggest a threesome.

Laced with shit? I dont know what shit your talking about, but if a dealer laced your buds with something like acid just to be an asshole; he'd be losing money.

I am quite proud of the fact that I have never smoked weed (and never will). I feel so pure.

If I were in charge, the only legal drug would be alcohol (and medicine, obviously). I would make drugs even MORE illegal ( ie: Anal rape with a cactus for possession with intent to sell).

You sicken me. What right do you think you have to inhibit the personal freedoms of others? Marijuana harms nobody, and nobody wants you pushing your altruistic ideals on them. Your decisions in life are yours and mine are mine, I'd like to keep it that way.

Your 13, your judgement isn't final. And what makes you think that legality status makes a difference? The fact that one is bashed and the other is permisable? Substance laws only open the doors to blackmarkets, not to mention its cheaper and more available than it was decades ago. The US government paid over $4.7 billion to keep drugs from getting into this country, and the total estimate of the drug profits in this country comes to about $143.4 billion a year. This country spends more than 30 TIMES AS MUCH MONEY BUYING AND TRADING ILLEGAL DRUGS AS THEY DO TRYING TO ENFORCE THEIR SHODDY SUBSTANCE LAWS!!! Theres alot more to drugs than you think. I expect every Amercian to know their facts when they make their judgement.

Just because some of you people say that you didn't get addicted to weed doesn't mean somebody can't. People's brain chemistries are very different. Some people are more prone to the pyschologically addictive properties of weed than others. It's also very circumstantial. If there are certain memories and situations that your body associates with an action then that could also make something harder to drop.

Anyway, just keep busy to get your mind off of it. That's about all you can do.
