People who smoke weed will have a hard time concentrating, anxiety, adverse affect on memory and laziness, would you risk having some of these problems just to get a high?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.
