If you read the posts in this thread, the majority of the people have stated that they *have* tried it, and found it to be not-so-wonderful for various reasons.

I have no problems with the use of marijuana per sé, but I think it is overrated and that most people who brag about using it are generally just seeking attention and trying to "look cool."

I quit drinking and drugs over 9 years ago. I do slightly regret my inability to have a nice glass of wine with dinner or a beer or two with friends, but really good friends are understanding. The smell of pot now generally makes me gag, though it always kinda did if I wasn't smoking.

I know people who can be quite sensible in their substance use, but I decided a long time ago that there are some boundaries I'd better not test.

well that's a rather strange comparision isn't it?

No, it is not. I do not have to experience something to know it is bad.

Quote
that's why i say people only look at the bad effects easy too target negative things. same thing like alcohol they only look at the bad effects. Alcohol has some good effects like good for the blood and such.

I don't know if the point initially skipped completely over your head, or what, but the negatives are that many, many peoples lives are COMPLETELY ruined by these things. A few hours of emotional numbness or the giggles, when it is not even a necessary risk, is hardly a valid trade.

Quote
like i said before you only look at the drug addicts. soft drugs isn't that addictive. Hard drugs however is but that is also a thing that people mess with

There is a decent enough amount of people who believe that marijuana is a bridge to other, far more harmful substances for me to not touch the stuff.

Quote
well someone who has smoked before and then started using weed. actually purified his lungs of the smoke
wow that's temporaily pleasure?

I'm not sure I understand what you are saying.

Quote
if your real stressed and don't know what to do. and smoke a join too relax and later on start doing things 1 by 1 that not good?

You are ignoring the negative effects. I have addressed the "positives" and have stated that they are entirely unevenly balanced.

Quote
ofcourse their uses are the same
too drug yourself -.- the only difference that the hopsital does it when needed and people for pleasure

If you don't see the difference, well...maybe you should stop smoking so much dope.

Quote
It can be done, easily but most people don't know when too quit and get addicted. politics should make better rules and help people protect themselves. But you don't think of that don't you? you oly think of those addicted people who fuck up their life.

Society should waste resources by taking care of people who add an unnecessary risk to their lives? Of course I think about the addicts. They aren't fucking menial cases.

I only smoked 5 times. I won't do more I think
but that not problem
i'm same guy as before I smoked weed. Glad i've done th experience, but i'm sure i don't want too continue with the shit..

Besides i don't smoke at all
and as for alcohol i only drink on parties

the negative things start too happen when u use too much
and that not good. people don't have the will too stop and stay in a trance form
and let them slip from reality and that is bad

i'm not a fan of drugs myself yet i know why some people use it.
but lot's of stress and lot's of pressure can make u do bad things that are more pleasure than anything else
if goverment would make a good rule for that then only the good effects would come out

but that is same foreverything
never use too much

I wish I could say marijuana should be legal as people can make judgements for themselves and stop before they "ruin their lives" and all that, but.. Most people can't.
Well, they can, but they choose not to, and all that garbage.

I've smoked some marijuana but never really took it very far. It's fun and all that, but not any more fun than anything else I could do. And I just prefer being sober over intoxication. Mainly because once I have one single paranoid thought while tripping, it ruins my whole trip, and all I can think about is all the different ways I might break my legs or forget how to breathe, or some stupid crap like that.

A lot of people do only look at "well, X many people have completely screwed up their lives, so whatever substance it is that they used should be illegal" and it bugs me too. But not really for the same reason as it did Da Venom, or whoever it is that can't type all that well and seems a bit drugged out of their mind. It would be nice if people would just think about things before they get in too deep. But most don't, and so drugs get a bad reputation and whatnot.
Then one would argue (probably Joe (not an insult!)) with "Well, isn't the fact that the drug CAN do these bad things to the body enough to warrant the illegalization of the drug?"
Well, I don't think it is. If you take a whole lot of alcohol, Advil, whatever, you're in for a bad visit to the hospital. Or the morgue. My point is people should.. Just stop being so damn stupid..

And please keep in mind that there are in fact reasons for using drugs other than being "cool" and temporarily relieving stress. Believe it or not, people actually do enjoy the drug just for the drug, just like people enjoy video games, movies, books, whatever. They actually do enjoy it.

My mind is fried and I'm probably not making sense.
I am completely sober, I have been for over a year, and I've never done much of anything anyway. Never been drunk, been high on weed a few times, and that is all. I'm just a very, very strange person who will ramble on for hours and hours and then get sidetracked by a passing butterfly.

The end.

Regarding weed....we already know it isn't really any more harmful to the body than alcohol.  The real difference between alcohol and MJ is that MJ carries a mild hallucinogenic effect, but the effect is so mild it's barely worth mentioning.  Assuming that the logistics of law enforcement surrounding the issue were worked out, there really isn't any compelling reason to criminalize marijuana while keeping alcohol legal.

You don't have to smoke it, Sim.  Cooking it into a brownie is a viable method, as well.
