It can help cure glaucoma, which is never a bad thing. But it has the possibility to get you high, which in turn could cause you to do idiotic things that may cause harm to other people or maybe even yourself. But it's whoever takes its fault if that happens.

I don't think marijuana is really bad, rather, its psychedelic effects are (sort of.)

Can we say human creativity gone wrong? I mean repeatedly consuming large quantity of high quality inhibitor drug, it's like they've completely lost control. Just what were they thinking?

Oh wait.

Well, when you get addicted to that stuff, than its bad.
Otherwise, smoking some once in a while is fine by me.

As for me, I don't smoke weed (or smoke anything at all). I just never saw the appeal to it.
As for you, well, you just do what you want to do, just don't get addicted to it though XD.

Hmm I look at it this way:

Increased Heart Rate (this could be potentially dangerous)
Dry Mouth

Long term giving you:

Impaired Sperm production
Ovulation Cycle disruptions
Decreased output of gonadotropic hormones
Possible damage to motor reflexes
Possible development to anxiety and depression related disorders
Possible damage to nerves used in sex
Possible increase in frequency of stillbirths
Possible impaired fetal growth

Meh. It's not that bad in comparison with other drugs, bout the same as alcohol in a sense. Personally, I choose not to do it, and I prefer that my significant other does not too (I avoid drinking as well, due to having a drinking problem).

Being in Vancouver though, alot of my friends do partake in the occaisional joint and I have nothing against that. When they become addicted its a rather sad sight. One of my friends was a phenomenal drummer prior to his extended use of pot. Since then he became addicted (and trust me I mean addicted, think crack addict style) he started jumping groups to get his 6 joints a day. Lost his job, lost his girlfriend, dropped out of school. Proceeded to break his hand while high (never went to see a doctor due to fear of being caught high and partially because it would take time out of his getting high) and let it heal over (which it did poorly). Scrap his drumming now thanks to that. Continued to become more abusive with it and lost his friends. The only thing he has left now is his religion which scorns him (Christianity). To me, that is a sad. He let marijuana control his life and fell prey to his addiction.

On the topic of drugs in general, things like Salvia Divinorum, Datura Stramonium, and Diphenhydramine give you some messed up hallucinations. Trust me on that one. Stay away from those.

It all depends on how yo use it.
there are marijuana USERS ( which i am, when i want to relax or play instruments)
and then there are ABUSERS ( who absolutely need to smoke every single day more than once)
then it gets out of hand, and if you smoke every day, the effects arent as strong, thus leading to a more potent drug.
and then the cycle continues.

That is a myth. There is no evidence showing Marijuana use leading to use of other drugs. At that there is evidence that shows cigarettes are more of a gate way drug that marijuana.

Another Myth. Evidence has shown that marijuana is fiscally non-habit forming. In other words you can not get addicted to it. At that caffeine is much more addicting and harmful for your body than Marijuana.

That's before people learned how to make stronger marijuana, so your myths are busted.

Was that video created by the drug task force? Sorry what they are talking about in that video are not real symptoms of marijuana.
They have to have had PSP mix in with there marijuana just to get any of the side affects.

You did not bust anything. You just used a bogus video, from a non-scientific source.

An author talks about his own book which was 10 years old, and a news report about an yet to be patterned and registered bogus treatment? That's the "scientific" proof you're referring, besides getting a none-related drug called PSP into the mix?

Where are their research data and the statistics? Or are they simply pretending the addicts aren't really there? Are they scientists or denial specialists?

It's bad. Just plain bad. Even if it has some positive effects on your body, the negative effects are heavier.

It's not entirely bad, but it is stupid.
I mean, aren't there more practical ways to waste time other than being stoned??
You could be doing something more productive for your own benefit.
