You can list all the positives you want, but it doesn't overrule the fact that it's a harmful substance...


LOL, name a medication that isn't a harmful substance.



That's why you need a doctor's prescription for most of them... and you don't use them unless you're sick...

This has been on my mind for some time too. I side on the side that it should be legal for both medical and recreational uses. It should be taxed, and allowed for American farmers to grow. It, and its sister plant hemp, are really miraculous plants. I believe that the government shouldn't tell us how to live our lives, but they should protect the innocent against the stupid. If you get high, wreck your car into someone, through no fault of the other driver but it was your fault, yes you should be held against your actions.

BUT, I also side on the fact that most other drugs should be legal. There should be an island some where where Cocaine, Meth, and Iawaska, as well as the other more powerful drugs. If you want to wreck you lives, go on and trash you lives, no sweat. If you leave your family, or destroy your family because of some substance, then your are even dumber that the people that believed the Reefer Madness propaganda in the '30's.

But again, I am only 20, so what do I know.

I meant any medication. Did you know that acetaminophen is pretty much always in the top 3 drug causes of ER visits in hospitals. BTW, acetaminophen is Tylenol.

Everything you put into your body alters your body chemistry and can make you unwell if you use too much of it. Human stupidity and carelessness is what causes most of these unfortunate incidents, not just the potentially harmful substance itself. Of course cannabis is a harmful substance. Heck, air is a harmful substance because it oxidizes your cells. That being said, alcohol and tobacco are worse for you than cannabis, especially if you vape the weed or eat it. Where do you draw the line? It seems that a lot of people are against 'recreational' use. Why? Because people aren't allowed to have fun even if they do it responsibly?

Yeah I know what you mean. And my point was, nobody uses medication everyday, maybe once a year (unless they have a chronic illness).

I agree with using marijuana for medicinal purposes, handled by health professionals... not for public use.

I smoke it and it helps with my anxiety and depression. It's a great pain reliever. I also believe it has enhanced my cognitive abilities.

At first, I thought you guys were talking about the plural form of a cannibal.
Then I googled it and got drugs. I don't think anything about drugs.

I think it's more important to legalize hemp... it can be used for so many things: paper, fabrics, building materials, oil, food and more. Not only that, the kid's can't use it to get high on.

Legalizing weed for consumption isn't a bad thing, but legalizing hemp for it's many uses is a better thing.
