Does Marijuana Make You Violent?

Marijuana doenst make ME violent or anyone that I know. BUT Mary Jane isnt for everyone. Some people CAN possibly get a little crazy if they are really unstable. Ive seen it for myself but fortunately those people are far and few between. Most people just want to chill and laugh and eat all the snacks they can. For others it relieves pain, stress, and helps them go to sleep. It depends on what strain of indica or sativa youre smoking. As a survivor of cancer I can say that it helped me ALOT and it still does. It also depends on how you use it. Smoking is the crudest form and some people cant smoke because of an illness so they eat /drink it. Some people apply it to their skin in lotion form. Each high is different depending on alot of variables.

As far as addictive, you can become dependent on it but then again you can become dependent on anything. Thats the wonderful thing about addiction. There are so many, many, many things you can become addicted to outside of drugs. I think id rather be dependent on pot than something else that is potentially more harmful.


very true man, weed has a psychological addiction because being high is more fun so you want to keep doing it, I know people who have smoked it after having depression and other mental disorders and it's not good, causes paranoia and stuff so it's not for everyone.

Weed doesn't make people violent. It does make them exceptionally stupid and dependent though. Not to mention makes you smell extremely bad. Cigarette's may kill you over an extremely long period of time with extended use, but they won't make you decide playing with a lighter in front of a running gas heater is a good idea like MJ did to a guy I know.

if anything weed open's up more possibilities in thinking and thought, everything makes perfect sense to you but you have difficulty explaining it while high. dependent on what? weed smells nice, but I guess that's subjective to your senses. And how the hell was that last point the effect of weed rather than the stupid behaviour of the person? God... so everything has to be cause and effect? If someone is an idiot or does something stupid it HAS to be the illegal substance he's taken!!

QFT.

Affects everyone slightly differently. Does much less harm in anyone than alcohol will.

It doesn't make anybody violent... Not from what I've experienced. I've actually had a few very deep conversations with some friends while high. We couldn't make any sense of it, but it just made sense to me. I truly felt peaceful. But that doesn't mean anybody should smoke it all the time... Inhaling smoke in general is terrible for your lungs, and doing it all the time, unfortunately can kill some brain cells. Not to mention the things that can get laced into it, such is cocaine, or some other dangerous and illegal substance.

I love to smoke weed and hashish on a daily basis. Never have I seen anyone become violent after ingesting marijuana, though I have seen a few people become quite violent after drinking alcohol.

After I smoke I feel calm and relaxed and in the mood for gaming and anime, or petting my cat. Lately I have been making butter from it and using that to make cookies, eliminating any risk of inhaling smoke into my lungs.

Very ripe mango's contain a chemical called myrcene. Eating a very ripe mango 1 hour prior to smoking can vastly increase buzz intensity and length of buzz, I highly recommend this. For a few people this does not work, and some have to eat two. There is also a ton of information on Google about this.

We also know from studies marijuana lowers the metabolism in cancer cells making it harder for cancer to spread. Big pharma cannot get rich off a cure or control you can grow in your closet, and expensive treatments are a massive industry.

People have actually known this for quite a long time http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/09/06/marijuana-fights-cancer-and-helps-manage-side-effects-researchers-find.html

lol lordseth the believer in the war on drugs.

your sources were absolute bullshit, nothing more. there's no expertise in any of them. any argument you make is in favour of legalizing it.

Care to cite a legitimate source?


Sure, I cite myself I was standing there while it happened. Which makes my source far more reliable than anything you or Vega will link. By the way, You just triple posted. If all you want to say is "give me a source" you should just make one post saying "I see what you guys are saying but where are you getting your info from?" and then spoiler tag all the quoted posts.

Yes, it is a drug that has medical purposes, but like any drug, it should not be taken unless it is prescribed by a doctor.

Seth if all you are going to do is bash someone who doesn't agree with you and make comments like "your own life experience is pointless because you don't have a PHD" it may be in your best interest to stop posting these threads. Also I just told you not to triple post and you did it again.
