The fact of it is I have seen peoples careers ruined because of drug use in the Army, I have seen the families of those diggers destroyed.
I have seen the brother of a friend of mine end up in a mental institution after 12 years of marijuana use with paranoid delusions and multiple personality disorder.
I have had my cousin die of a heroin overdose after being a user like yourself. She was just trying it to see what it was like.
So I've seen my fair share of the damage it can do.

However I would agree that kids should not be encouraged to use such (or any substance) until they are older, more developed, and responsible... Much like drinking and what have you...
I'm also not advocating the abuse of any substance or anything for that matter, since gambling, computer, internet, television, and other adictions can be just as harmful to your body and life...
Here is some information on IAD or Internet Addiction Disorder

There must be a bible quote saying;"leve and let live". Smoke it in the confines of your home; fine. Smoke it an cause troubles, accidents or damage to property; you pay the price!
If I'd like to smoke some pot and game a little and probably fall asleep on my couch, what is wrong with that? And if I cause harm well I'll have to pay.... simple as that!

If someone is on the battlefield beside you shooting up some meth; you should praise him for being the savage fighter he is and fighting for the same cause as you; not shun him because he's a drug user.
Sadly; the same cannot be said for marijuana. This tends to make people lazy; and should not be used in the battlefield. Look what happened at nam. Either way; it depends on the scenario. Off the battlefield it is fine to use IMO.

it really depends on the user. i have a few friends who are basically burnouts, they sit around and do nothing all day but get high. i also have a few friends who smoke weed and have high paying proffesional jobs. the fact that it can lead to psychosis later in life is debateable. do your studies tell you of the subjects family history with regards to mental illness, or other factors that may increase the risk of it? weed is basically a harmless recreational drug if used responsibly. of course it can have negative effects if used in an irresponsible way(driving on it, etc), but many things can.
your flaws are your perfection.

As for the government sources issue. I took information from the department of health information for health workers resource. I don't know about your country, but here the government tends to provide the CORRECT information to health workers... not propaganda.

So how about those Canadians in Afghanistan that where killed by a US pilot who was using government issued "go pills"....
You are very naive if you think a prescription drug being given to you buy a doctor or mandated by your government employer isn’t bad for you....In fact most prescription drugs are derivatives of illegal drugs....Go figure....
If you want proof how many painkillers are of the opiate base????
I’m not advocating the abuse or use of any substance whether it is legal or not I'm simply stating your arguments are baseless and if we where to use your logic then well basically all humans should sit in one place not breathe not do anything and listen to whatever big brother tells them to do...Like they dont have any alternative motives....
Im talking about the impact of goverment brainwashing, to much television watching, prolonged computer use, and the durnk driver that just killed a family.... Yet those are all legal things being abused... go ****in figure....
Here have some sources
US Pilots on go pills
Google search for the above
Opiate based painkillers (legal perscribed and used)
An interesting little flow chart thing I found
It is also funny when you do research on the military and drugs you will find that the goverment sites say the exact opposite of the non-goverment sites....Again go figure....
Finally Aussie Nick I'm not trying to dis you bilittle you or even change your view, I'm just saying their is far more to this all then you think and to be honest "weed", "herb", "pot", "grass" whatever you want to call it is the least of our problems...

"In accordance with set policy Major (Umbach) and Major (Schmidt) were ground tested and both were without side effects and were medically cleared for operational use of 'go pills.' "
The U.S. inquiry board agreed.
"The prescribing physician felt that both pilots tolerated the go/no-go pills and managed their crew rest well prior to the incident," the board stated. Poor judgment -- not drug impairment -- warranting manslaughter charges led to Schmidt dropping his bomb, the two boards concluded.

By working in the entertainment industry, I have seen it all. One of the things I have noticed, is when an artist starts to use marijuana, he looses his creative initiative. These artists are the most apathetic bunch I have ever seen. They will talk big but do nothing, except smoke more weed. Is it no wonder that people who smoke weed are considered "losers"?
If you want to retain that motivational drive and ambition, DO NOT use marijuana. It may not harm you physically, but it will alter you mentally.
