So the fact that smoking weed is more legally discouraging makes it automatically worse? Even if the effects of tobacco are worse it doesn't mean that they are going to make tobacco illegal. Tobacco has been smoked for centuries while weed is much more recent. It's much easier to make it illegal since it isn't rooted into culture, tradition, and history as tobacco has due to the amount of time it has been in use. If the stuff was found just recently it would most likely be categorized as a drug with severe legal penalties. Also going to jail for pot is a lot harder than you may think. It takes multiple busts. Another thing, the thread is about weed, not harder drugs than envoke mandatory sentences for just possesion such as cocaine. AA wrote that drugs do effect intelligence and memory. Yes, a majority of them do. What I have been saying is that weed doesn't decrease brain activity. In my personal opinion I thought that weed effects only short term memory, but as it turns out it is scientifically proven to only effect that during the time of usage. As for long term memory, nothing is decreased.

To get a 100% in the running portion of the Army fitness test you must run 2 miles in under 13:00 min. Weed isn't gonna help me maintain that statistic. So none for me.

Or you could grow, plus it really isn't that expensive, unless you smoke by yourself daily.

AA you see I don't drink that much so I have to indulge myself in other stuff.
And about the memory loss effect...that's true, although mostly ultra short term memory...as in I lose my keys (in my appartment) a lot.
