    I don't smoke it but I will say this, why in the world is it not legal and cigarettes are?? Our priorities are pretty fucked up I must say. I am a smoker and I know that cigarettes are way worse for you. Pot seems pretty harmless and has great abilities to ease tension and doesn't appear to be harmful to your system.

    My girlfriends 15n y.o. son went through chemo therapy from cancer for over a year and a half, they kept plugging him with drugs to try to help prevent him from puking his brains out all day. The only thing that really helped him to cope was pot, even the nurses turned the other way when they knew he had some.

    I've always wondered why pot was illegal and alcohol was legal. alcohol causes so damn many problems...it is easier to kill yourself with alcohol. the dangers of pot already seem to covered with cigs. I don't smoke pot...and i do go on the occasional booze bender...just wonder sometimes

    Alcohol and cigarettes are legal for two reasons.

    1) The government makes too much money in sin taxes off of them to make them illegal

    AND

    2) They've been historically legal too long to make them illegal now - the general population would rebel against the law (think Prohibition).

    As for marijuana being safe for you... Don't make me laugh with such nonsensical BS. Here are some facts about pot you should keep in mind:

    Researchers for the British Lung Association say smoking three marijuana cigarettes is just as bad for your lungs as smoking 20 normal cigarettes.

    They say tar from pot cigarettes has 50 percent more cancer-causing chemicals than the tar in tobacco cigarettes.

    They also say marijuana today is more dangerous than it was in the 60's because today's marijuana is chemically stronger.

    Points from a marijuana addition website
    http://www.marijuana-addiction.net/m...na-dangers.htm

    1. Pot smokers tend to score lower on standardized tests and miss more days of work or school than non pot smokers.

    2. Marijuana brings about emotional sensations of isolation, depression and an increase in anxiety - emotions that lead to further use of the drug and (yes, it's true) habitual dependance (read: addiction) to the drug.

    3. Habitual users that have become addicted suffer overwhealming anxiety, irritability and sleeping difficulties when they cease use of pot and go through withdrawals

    Marijuana contains 150 different elements, including THC. When marijuana is smoked, THC flows through the bloodstream and interacts with different areas of the brain, such as the hippocampus, which is responsible for memory, and the cerebellum, which controls movement. The highest concentration of THC, however, binds with the middle of the brain. It is this binding that triggers the secretion of the feel-good hormone dopamine. This is what produces a feeling of mellowness or carefree numbness a "high."

    Because marijuana affects the hippocampus, the part of your brain that forms new memories, smoking it can inhibit new memory formation. That can be a serious problem if you're in school, trying to learn. There have been no studies on the long-term effects of marijuana on child and adolescent brains, so the extent to which smoking pot permanently damages brain cells is unknown.

    Unfortunately I can't find a particular statistic for this, but the effects of pot stick with you for a long time due to the fact that chemicals in it are fat sollubal and get stored in your body in the form of fat for extended periods of time. You can be "high" legally days after you smoked pot the last time.

    Good post, Stuff,
    I really didn't know that shit. I wasn't saying pot was safe, but I never really knew what the specific consequences were.

    ah well, i've never smoked pot in my life and still don't plan on it. But if it were legalized, a lot of people would get dumber and I would look smarter by comparison

    keep in mind that possession is legal, not trafficking. this means that they expect you to grow your own, primarily for medicinal purposes (yep, politicians are naive sometimes).
    but yeah, i studied the effects of pot on the brain and it doesn't look good.
    whatever you do, don't go and do ecstacy though, one "dose" will ruin your brain forever.

    </font>[/QUOTE]Alright man, you asked for it... First off, What about the addictiveness of alcohol? Additionally, if pot was made available to the masses, the use frequency would probably be treated more as alcohol, being occasional for most folks...
    1. Drunk driving is the nation's most frequently committed violent crime.
    2. Americans rank drunk driving as their No. 1 highway safety concern.
    3. Preliminary research for 2000 shows that alcohol-related crashes cost the public an estimated $114.7 billion annually -- this includes an estimated $63.9 billion lost in quality of life due to these crashes.
    4. Liver disease.
    As for addictive qulaities, what about the alcoholics?
    1. Beat the shit out of spouses and /or neighbor's dog.
    2. Stupid enought to drink and drive (See #2 above)
    3. An estimated 513,000 people are injured in alcohol-related crashes each year, an average of 59 people per hour or approximately one person every minute.

    Realistically, what's the most that happens when you're stoned? Munchies... Or kicking back. Have you ever seen someone become physically violent after hitting the pipe? Possible, but unlikely. Even though you don't remember what you did 5 minutes ago, pot still allows you to catch your snap if you smoke enough (hence smoking yourself straight), where as alcohol makes you physically sick the more you drink. Just some observations [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    </font>[/QUOTE]ya know, I guess, I just wasn't around it enough. I went to college in Green Bay, and Wisconsin truly is beer country. If you're not satisfied drinking yourself retarted, you don't belong in Wisconsin. I've always been a little curious, but I figured, I've never done an illegal drug and it will be nice to someday tell my kids that honestly...why start now.
