I don't really care if people drinks brake fluid or smokes their socks, as long as they are only harming themselves..

But the point in my previous post was that you are more likely to harm others by using substances like Marijuhana (how the heck do you spell that.. ) and cannabis, than you are with tobacco and alcohol..
What about the harm that is done to others because of the actions of the pot users? That is part of the reason smoking (tobacco) is now looked on in the USA with such disfavor or in some places banned.
I vote for keeping it Illegal.

I agree. I've seen co-workers who were regular users lose their jobs, causing financial strain on their families. They have a very difficult time getting another job that paid well too, because most notable employers drug-test these days. Those who use regularly seem to lack any shred of motivation or ambition.

I'm reviving this thread since there are many more new users since this thread started and since I never got to state my opinion on the matter

I do believe it should be legal (to an extent)

Now, I havent planned out this post like I should so im just typing as I think. I've consumed a fair share of cannabis, in fact i used to smoke/eat it everyday a few months ago. Now I only do it occasionaly. And no, I'm not a shaggy haired liberal hippy. I dont wear tie dyed t-shirts. I support the war in Iraq and all that. Ok. It does impair your senses and memory only while your high/coming off of one I can't stress that enough. Now i've read the above posts about how cannabis has ruined their friends/families lives and school grades but thats just utter crap (to say the least). Its the individuals choices that they make that affects there lives. Sure, if you get high right before a big test/event, you will most likely do poorly. But that is your choice to do that, its not the marijuana that screwed up your life, its you! It's your fault you that you chose to do a psychoactive drug when you had something important to do. But when consumed responsibly, like you would alcohol, I can see no problem in that.

When I say "legal to an extent" I mean you should not drive or operate heavy machinery, you should be on your own property (not wandering the streets), and you should not be allowed to join the military of course if you are gonna smoke all the time.

I think its really stupid that alcohol and tobacco are legal but not cannabis. And when people that say cannabis is a "gateway drug" are completely ignorant. No one that I know of (and I know a lot of stoners) shoots up heroin or does cocaine. The chances are that if someone is inclined to do hard drugs, they would have even if they didnt smoke cannabis. Also, anyone who says that cannabis makes you crazy, violent, and stupid obviously has never tried it. Anyone that has done it knows that it makes you passive and laid back.

As for health effects, I can only think of one and that is the fact that smoking anything is bad for your lungs. But other than that, there really is nothing wrong with it. I know none of you are going to believe that because its a "drug" but thats the truth. Most of those facts you hear about how it affects your motor skills and speach and all that jazz applies to when you are on the drug, those arent permanant effects.

As a matter of fact, cannabis has a number of health benefits . It reduces nausea in chemotherapy patients and at the same time it allows them and people who have AIDs to eat!

Quote:
Marijuana has many possible medical uses. Positive effects are claimed for ailments such as cancer, AIDS, and glaucoma. AIDS can cause a loss of appetite known as the "wasting syndrome" which can lead to drastic weight loss and weakness. Chemotherapy used in the treatment of cancer causes nausea resulting in an inability to keep down food. Marijuana's healing nature for these two illnesses is a result of it's ability to increase a person's appetite as well as relieving nausea allowing a patient to regain weight. Marijuana reportedly helps glaucoma patients by reducing occular pressure which can cause damage to the eye.
I just dont see why it is still illegal when there are so many other drugs sold via prescription that have terrible side-effects when cannabis has very little.

Now, you may be surprised to know that I am in fact high right now. Sure it took me three times as long and probably is filled with errors and such but I think I did a good job. I anxiously await your responses.

Topic: Dont legalize it "ever"!


It's a dead end road!

it will ruin your life
it will stop you from doing things you should
it will ruin relationships
it will numb you from reality
it will harm you physically (if it is laced especially)
it will make you eat more food than u need
it will be a main focus if you are hooked
it will help you join the wrong crowd
it will lead to other drugs
it will dampen your enthusiasm
it will cause accidents
it will give a don't care attitude
it will eat a hole in your pocket book
it will give satan a foothold in your life (it will)
it will ruin families
it will just be another way to make money at expense of someone else
it will stop you from growing up

How is this list looking to you?

Everything on this list "I have experienced from the effect of Pot"

My Grandparents raised me from the age of 7 basically but when I was 13
I flew to Texas where my Mom,brother,and stepdad lived to stay for the
summer.
To make a long story short My stepdad while watching tv handed me my
first joint. Thinking I should look up to him I smoked it.

Needless to say I left before school started and came back to Iowa.
The problem was I was hooked on it already,and peer pressure had got me.

For the next 18 plus years I smoked Pot on and off.With stepdad,Mom,
Uncle,brother,friends,coworkers,people I just met whoever!

It stopped me from entering the Army when I was a senior in school to a
certain point.
Now it plays a role in me entering now 5 years after I smashed that pipe!
and kicked the habit along with cigarettes,along with the need for Alcohol
(another killer)

I give God the glory for releasing me from that pit.I am born again Christian
along with my Wife.

So for anyone smoking it or thinking about it one word of advice "Don't"
Don't give Satan the glory of holding you in any kind of bondage.Because that is what he's
doing diverting you from the path you should be traveling.

I hope this statement does not befriend anyone from me.But I hope it helps
someone reading.

Your past dictates your future

Hahahahahahahaahahahahaha christ almighty Jazz-do! Can I ask how old you are? I have met Satan in many other things too..... in fact, most rotten things in daily life "will dampen my enthusiasm"! I have had girlfriends "ruin relationships" because they liked another man better. In fact...this list makes me wonder on what planet you live mate. It will stop me from growing up?
Just a quick example; do you know what the percentage is for divorces? These things definatly ruin families, erlationships, dampen enthusiam, eat a hole in any mans pocket book and so forth! So should we forbid divorce... why not? The people were probably sober when they vowed before God to stay together!

We could also turn it around too. I have smoked it, I still have a job, I am enthousiastic, on a whole: I can say I life a good life! Oh yes, I am not divorced either and love the boy in me.....

Like the warnings on the TV, it's a choice that is completely yours and yours alone. I, personally would not hire anyone who has used in the past five years. We are subject to random a whiz quiz, if it's dirty, you're gone.

Smoking pot shows what kind of character you really have. You need pot to make you passive and laid back to relax and have fun. If this is the case, that you need a substance to make you laid back, you are indeed a very weak person. You are showing that you have absolutely no intestinal fortitude.
