Hey i'm just here for telling some things most people don't know yet. Marijuana, well the compound known as CBD (Cannabidiol) , (not THC) is the cure for CANCER. Yes that's right it can cure all sorts of cancer. It's a medicine given to us by nature. I will give you some links to do some research yourself. Sometimes it will not cure the patient because the cancer has become to big but nonetheless it will give them much relief of pain and other ill effects.

But let me start by saying that the man named 'Rick Simpson' is the pioneer of all this , and he can't be praised enough. So all praise goes out to him for making this stuff the weedoil (that's the medicine he made from the marijuana's CBD) and giving it away for free, for the terminally ill diagnosed cancer patients. You can watch 'RUN FROM THE CURE' on youtube. He cured himself of cancer in the face, so that's how he got into it.

i'll give more links and spread the word to everyone you know, because this is a medicine that everybody should be able to get for their loved ones!!

On top of that there has been a recent study that driving under the inlfluene of weed isn't dangerous at all! You'll be surprised when you read this at:

So i hope that'll set things straight and people will be able to cure themselves.

Much love and light to all!
Peace!!

This post is insensitive to others. People suffering from cancer and using chemotherapy have noted that marijuana use had significantly reduced the side-effect of nausea. I would argue that individuals in these drastic situations need "drugs" in their life to help them survive. You shouldn't trivialize other peoples lives.

Everyone should be free so smoke whatever he/she wants, but... no driving, no weapons and insure yourself properly.
The community is not obligated to pay for you doings.

Yeah I think a lot of us have been told how supposedly bad marijuana is, but I think a lot of that is basically just propaganda telling us that it's bad, ya know? There's no way marijuana is just as bad as drugs like cocaine or even worse. It's just propaganda for us to continue fighting the drug war.


One of the reasons marijuana is illegal is that hemp was going to overtake the timber industry. Here's a website with a story all about it

Marijuana isn't illegal because it's "bad" for you. It's illegal because money was going to be lost.

I don't know why Marijuana "Cannabis Sativa" is illegal, It is so much more safe than Alcohol and Tobacco, It is said that no one has died whilst using cannabis, Everyone and everything would be less outraged if it was legal, It would make the community so much happier of a place, Only thing I see wrong with Weed is the fact that it is addicted and leaves you with nothing else to do all day besides getting high.

Living in New Zealand alot of people use Marijuana, I am not an avid user of it but i don't see it harmful at all, Another thing is, is if Cannabis becomes legalized, Alot of dealers would get enraged and start taking more drastic measures to make money etc.

You are right about bloomberg being a whore. But, Liberals are people who want more freedoms...that is the definition of liberalism. From wikipedia:

Words such as liberal, liberty, libertarian, and libertine all trace their history to the Latin liber, which means "free".


Of course not all liberals have the same views, but you can definitely say that liberals generally support more freedoms. ...Anyways, this thread wasn't meant to be a politics debate.

I have smoked marijuana a handful of times in my life since senior year of High School to today. I am for legalization and regulation in the United States.

1. I believe that countries who manufacture marijuana and use that money to oppress their citizens or become violent with neighboring countries should suffer a hit to their finances.

2. I believe that children should not be allowed to utilize mind/state-altering drugs until they are old enough to consider the consequences of such choices (generally around 18-21).

3. I believe that the local, state, and federal governments should not arrest and prosecute individuals for growing THC-less industrial hemp due to the abundant opportunities hemp production could have for the US economy. (Hemp can be used as an extremely efficient bio-fuel, ropes, clothes, paper, and negative carbon concrete [the concrete absorbs carbon from the atmosphere, reducing greenhouse effect] and other applications. It can grow in a number of soil types relatively quickly.) Little known fact: The US government received lobbyist funds from the farm/agricultural companies a long time ago to include hemp with the laws that made marijuana illegal, thus hemp production was outlawed in order to cut out competition.

Unfortunately, this issue will always come down to that. Politics are the reason Marijuana is illegal in this country, and Politics (along with money) will keep it illegal. Doesn't stop me from enjoying herb, though.

... wait, what were we talking about?

Posted 10/4/12
LOL @ EvilBunnyFluff - i like your sex/location ;-)


Anyways everyone knows all the good/bad points of cannabis, and its a never ending debate that usually goes 50/50, I'm sick of hearing it. Now what about the social uses for it? I use it to maintain my sleep schedule, but suddenly I meet more and more people who use it, and instantly I've ended up in a whole new world of networking professionals I never imagined would be like this from all ages, types, and professions. It goes into "don't knock it until you rock it!"

Bottom line I've become successful because of cannabis :-)

do you know theres about 448 different chemicals of cannabanoids in marijuana. the strongest being delta 9 tetrahydracannabynol. Marijuana is an anti-emetic meaning it has the capabilities of taking down your immune system(thats why a lot of marijuana smokers get sick easy). when taken with alcohol, it could be even more dangerous as marijuana can also slow down your metabolism causing you to stay drunker longer because the body can only process 1 oz. per hour. the process of metabolism goes from alcohol>diecitic acid>acid aldehyde > acetone> than finally broken up to simple carbohydrates...marijuana causes this process to slow down and what happens is the amount of acetone in the body will dry up the liver causeing scarring and what not... People who smoke marijuana are prone to Amotivational syndrome... when the user has a lack of motivation, enthusiasm, and lack of intuition( all in all makes you very lazy... this goes for people with long term use).... basically it has a bunch of up sides too but I wouldn't use it.

Im not downing on people who smoke marijuana but I work with a lot of people who suffer from abusing it. so you could say I have seen a lot of damage

I'm a practical person. I think marijuana should be legalized, regulated, and taxed. This way people who enjoy it can continue doing so without having to hide it, valuable government/police resources aren't spent cracking down on this rather than more important crime, and we get more revenue for the federal/state governments to work with. Maybe some of that weed tax money can go towards better roads, public schools, assistance programs, etc.

BUT

Even though marijuana is not as "bad" or harmful as other drugs, cannabis smokers are deluding themselves when they say it's "natural" therefore it's not harmful. Every time you inhale smoke into your lungs, it will harm you over time. Don't kid yourself.


I agree with this hole heartily. If it were to be legalized and taxed it would help solve a few issues, what a lot of people dont realize is that with the exception of them being arrested for carrying weed, their lives would not change that much. You would still not be able to drive while high, because you are still driving impaired. Wouldnt be able to smoke in most public places, due to not being able to smoke there anymore. A lot of employers will still not allow you to work while high, just like they wount allow you to work while drunk.
The idea that if its legalized, then everyone would be able to do whatever they want and smoke weed everywhere is rather silly.
Also, pretty much every weed grower for profit would go out of business incredibly quickly. If it were legalized, there is no way small growers would be able to compete with tobacco companies. They would be able to grow massive amounts reducing costs. Running the small growers out of business.

I love how wrong the argument about it not being harmful because its natural is. People dont realize Arsenic, Cyanide and Tetrodotoxin arguably the most dangerous neurotoxin in existence are all completely natural.

I like cannabis, but I am not a big fan of smoking. I smoke cannabis and tobacco once in a while but I prefer not to. Vaporizers are a lot less harsh and easier to use. They also save weed. I don't have one, but I have plenty of friends who have abandoned bongs and pieces for the vaporizer.

Usually, I get my THC from brownies and other baked goods. Sure seems harmless enough to me. It's great for those sleepless nights when you just want to unwind and relax.

From a purely logical standpoint it should be legal and taxed like alcohol and tobacco. That would minimize the stuff that comes across the borders and keep people out of jail for posession. And most importantly everyone would shut up about it.
