    There is a psychosis effect on the mind.. 80% of kids who do it get depressed or suffer from psychosis; can affect those with dissociative disorders and turn it into schitzophrenia.

    why the need for any sort of drug...are you so insecure that you need a "lift"? drugs are crap..get a life and stay clean and healthy...

    Yes, one who buys pot is and has made drug lords very wealthy. When you have a child, maybe 10yrs. old, you will understand. 70% of "Mexican" pot is grown in our National and State forest according to the "History" channel. The people living in the forest are there taking care and growing weed because the drug lords kidnapped these (growers) families to force them to do so. I f you buy pot or sell, share or give it away you are no better. You asked, so don't get mad at me. I wouldn't give drug dealers the _ off my _. Enjoy your smoke, don't let this stop you.

    Man, I lost my other comment, Oh yeah it was:
    I used to smoke pot and I can tell you first hand, what was I saying? Oh, yeah It does effect your memory, all though I cant remember exactly how. The only benefits I've noticed is it really makes "The Family Guy", much more funny.


    It may seem harmless, but it's not. You may wind up with side effects later in life that you can't reverse, I hope this helps.


    OOps, now it's back again, has anyone seen my wallet? Never mind I found it, it was in my pocket, I just couldn't feel it.


    O.k, now where are my keys? They were here a second ago. Dude who is messing with me?

    My stance on this subject: Nothing wrong with smoking weed....have been partaking for the last 45 years and have no reason to quit now.

    That explains a lot olehipster.

    Of course it's a personal choice. Illegal or not, marijuana use is on the rise. I understand the reasons behind the medicinal use but if you are looking into recreational use, know some facts before you make your decision (or use it again)...


    Short term - problems with memory, learning, problem solving, distorted perception, loss of coordination, and increased heart rate...just to name a few.


    Long term - Enhanced cancer risk, decrease in testosterone levels and lower sperm counts for men, increase in testosterone levels for women and increased risk of infertility, diminished or extinguished sexual pleasure, psychological dependence which requires more of the drug to get the same effect, which could lead to the use of stronger drugs.


    Obviously I'm anti drug, but again it's a individual choice. Please remember the facts and don't be one of those "Gee I didn't know it was bad for me" people.


    Your choice...your consequence!

    Coach

    My answers are not falsified and I do know what I'm talking about because I teach about this subject. THC (the chemical found in marijuana) has been proven to be both physically and psychologically addicting. MrDean, you"ve obviously made your choice and it sounds like your trying to convince yourself on the reasons why you should keep on doing it. Your question asked for proof and side effects and I gave them to you. You seem rather agitated that the answers aren't what you wanted to hear. That's life pal! Best of luck to you my friend!

    Coach

    Answering your question is not preaching. You're on a computer, look it up yourself. You've wasted enough of my time and your brain cells. I've said my bit. Again, I hope you find you you're looking for in life.

    MrDean

    i agree with the short term effects that last a 2 - 3 hours though they wear off and you are your self again but the long term is falsified answer that you probably just googled and wrote down. If people on kemo who are recovering from cancer smoke marijuana how does that make sense?? n the reduce in sperm count umm maybe but that also goes back to alcohol and cigarettes which do the same thing.

    MrDean

    sex drive actually increases but you wouldn't know unless you have tried it so you need to do some more research and its not addictive what so ever not like cigarettes which its hard to kick and kill 3.4 billion people a year marijuana has no deaths and you can drop in a instant. however theres only an addictive personality if you get addicted to stuff easily drugs whatsoever is not right for you. n its only a gateway drug again if you have an addictive peronality

    MrDean

    Ok since you teach about this subject have you personally used it ?? and the THC in the original plant and the one that people smoke is far less i've done my research to. Theres about 5 - 15 percent in the plant which is not enough to do and real damage unless you smoke the raw plant and its not about convincing myself about the reasons why i should or should not do it it is because theres no proof why i shouldnt. You tell me all these things and preach that it is proof but you have yet to tell me or show where you get your information from were as i have proof where i get my information from.

    NOT TO MENTION ITS "THE GATEWAY DRUG" MEANING YOU TRY WEED YOU THINK ITS COOL NEXT THING YOU KNOW YOU SNORT A LINE OF COCAINE... THEN WHAT HERION, CRACK...ETC BEST JUST TO STAY AWAY!!

    Alcohol is ten time worse. And it IS leagal and kills 20 times as many people. I would also bet that a siginificant number of lawmakers drink daily. Hypocracy! Weed makes stupid people more stupid. If you are predisposed to being stupid you shoudn't do it and you should wear a sign so people won't sell it to you. So, Here's your sign. Breathig our air adds all sorts of toxins into your lungs. If you do anything to the extreme it will be bad for you. It is also medicinal. Tell me is is worse for you than Xanax, lithium, depakote, seroquil.. I could go on and on. But those are used daly to slowly kill people. Just read the black box warning.

    I THINK MOST PEOPLE ON THIS SITE ARE ON WEED SOME ON POSSIBBLY STRONGER.

    Coach

    When I read some of the questions and answers that are posted...you may be right. Ha ha

    Ms Sinclair

    Ha Ha. Funny answer.

    "SAY NO TO DURGS"

    Ms Sinclair

    Aint that the truth. lol

    leeroy

    See what they have done to daren, He can't even spell anymire. Oh Great,nowh it's getting to me too. But, seriously I cna tell you fist hand that durgs do effect your memories. It's best to stay off them until you are done with school, because once in the real world, you wont need to use your brain that much anymore.

    The only thing I see is that it is illegal.

    leeroy

    I used to smoke and personally I think it effects your memory, though I can't really remember whether it does or doesn't. I do think it makes "The Family Guy," much more funny. Just a little joke!

    It can and will damage the DNA chromosome sequence. If you want kids in the future , stop now.

    Personaly I feel nothing wrong with it but society thinks different and society rules

    Nothing,and i did'nt have to go back and read the question again,well maybe once or twice...

    Coach

    Good one CR! Don't miss your Indians home opener!! Ha ha

    THE WORST SIDE EFFECT I HAVE SEEN IS LACK OF AMBITION AND THE MUNCHIES .CANT BE GOOD FOR YOUR LUNGS.OH YEAH ITS AGAINST THE LAW FOR SOME REASON

    30 million American Indians couldn't have been wrong.

    Nothing...I guess it depends on how you look at it. There is no one answer fits all...meaning we all are wired differently so to speak, and therefore weed will effect each of us in a slightly different way, also marijuana comes in many different strains and chemically each strain will have a different potency and effect. With that said, if you are a productive member of society, meaning you do your best everyday to contribute to the world in a positive way, you are not driving under the influence, or smoking around children or while watching over children...if you are in control of your consumption of marijuana...especially if you have a terminal illness and are on for example chemotherapy...there is some utility for smoking ...I would say that under certain circumstances...there is nothing wrong with smoking marijuana...but then again this is my personal opinion and holds no liability in a court of law

    1: It slows down your brain for 7 years. The smart become average. Average become stupid.
    2: It gives you a whole lot more poisons than tobacco. If you hold it in your lungs it will give you cancer a whole lot sooner.


    3: It is unregulated. You might have drugs of unknown origin tainting them. Drugs, pesticides, chemicals that can harm you.


    4: A drugged brain is more likely to produce less at work, be more dangerous on the road.


    If these aren't good enough answers for you then your drug-saturated brain may be too incapacitated to understand.

    MrDean

    slows down the brian ? where did you get that fact from theres many people that i know that have 3.4 gpa in college and have been smoking for years marijuana does not make you stupid. It not posionious at all, tobacco has rat poison an tar weed is a plant natural but of course inhaling smoke is bad but theres never been a case of someone getting cancer or someone dead because of smoking the driving operating machinery part is the same as alcohol.

    MrDean

    "Then you should be dead" if you met inhale then ok but you would still feel small buzz from initially taking in the smoke

    MrDean

    I forgot to adress the 3 answer yea it can be laced but its easy to check and you have to know where to buy and what your buying just like if i went to lowes and was looking for a can of cambells tomatoe soup and the give you bug spray does that make sense ?? so you just have to be wise and use common sense

    daren1

    ISMOKED POT IN COLLEDGE BUT I DIDN'T EXHALE

    daren1

    <a href="/users/7195/mrdean/">@mrdean</a> bill clinton said"i smoked pot in colledge but i didn't inhale"
    i just spun it around

    Pot makes you stupid. Literally. Regardless of what any of you dopers think pot has an effect on the brain. It causes mood swings,irrational thinking at times,not to mention the bad chemicals in it. For all you pot heads out there, look at your smoking buddies and ask yourself if their not off the wall at times. Booze is bad and pot is no better. I can't believe how many parents smoke dope with their kids, they belong in jail. People wake up. No wonder this generation of young people are so F* up look at the parents.

    There is stuff i put on my garden . It is called Weed Killer. Would not want to try it lol

    Want too see something funny.Try getting a one legged man high.And then watch him walk on his crutches.

    fucks with your brain

    All drugs are bad including weed, freedom of choice here..if you decide to be so weak willed that you feel the need for drugs then go ahead, but don't expect the state to pick up the tag for your treatment..get a life..stay drug free.

    MrDean

    Do you drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes

    If yer wanna take any form of drugs then do so..but don't ask the state to bail you out when yer hooked on the filthy stuff...get a life and be a real person not someone in make beieve land...

    Again i am still face with a problem theres no cold hard facts only bad presumptions of marijuana. Theres only people who try to put down the public eye by degrading the product because they would lose money. Does anyone know about the good effects of marijuana other then its medical purposes ? Alcohol is prone to hundreds of thousands police call of abuse murder suicide and etc. Theres been none for marijuana no deaths, no problems besides short terms effect of laziness for a few hours. Even in the bible people smoked weed. I WANT COLD HARD PROOF THAT IT'S BAD I WANT DATES, TIMES, EVENTS BUT I BET THERES NO ONE WHO CAN PROVE IT TO ME.

    THATS NOT MUCH,I FEEL YOUR AMBITION TO DO THINGS WILL COMEBACK SO YOU SHOULD HAVE A EXTRA DAY FREE TO DO NOTHING AND MUCHIES THATS GOOD IF YOU DONT EAT AND IT GIVES YOU A REASON TO COOK AND THE LUNGS; NEITHER A CIGARETTES BUT THEY CARRY WORSE PROPERTIES THAN MARIJUANA DO. I FEEL MARIJUANA IS WRONGFULLY UNDER PROHIBITION

    dwayne1716

    POINTS WELL TAKEN I WAS MEARLY GIVING THOUGHT IF IT WAS LEGAL ID BE FIRST IN LINE

    nothing .....for being illegal

    It tastes good, feels good- definitely must be bad for you.
    It does bring on depression and antisocial behaviour but at the same time it relieves tension, pain and hatred.In my opinion the benefits are equal to the negative effects. I say if you can handle it and youre not going to annoy me, go for it.

    A broader question is "What are the pros and cons of recreational drugs?"
    The answer could fill a PhD thesis. However, very briefly
    AGAINST:- Most are illegal, and most have harmful side effects. The probability of a given side effect coming from a particular drug might be very low, or very high, or not yet known.
    FOR:- (a) Personal liberty. Assuming you are fully informed, you should be allowed to do just about anything with your body.
    (b) Some, in fact most, give pleasure in some form. Life is to be enjoyed, even if the enjoying shortens it.

    Oh, an also if you are so smart how do you not realize that you should have research or personal experience on a subject before you post about it online, thought that was common knowledge...guess you didn't go to college. So much for mocking unproductive members of society

    Carlmdobbs, who do you think you are criticizing people like you're some sort of know it all god!? It doesn't make anybody less intelligent. Have you ever even smoked? And yeah, obviously you won't be able to work as hard or drive while you're high! You can't do those things drunk either! Why would you attempt to work or drive high? Contrary to your biased opinion with lack of credibility not everybody who smokes does it all day everyday. You can go ahead and call me stupid but I have many friends with me in college and grad school who smoke a lot and I'm pretty sure we aren't idiots.

    And what about cigaretts,they are expensive,and once you are hooked it is very hard to break the habit,you spend hundreds of dollars on stupid stuff that you think will help you quit,but,it does not help. Cigaretts and alcohol are a lot worse on you than marijuana ever was.You could take a poll and you would find out that the people who smoke marijuana live a lot longer,health wise,than the people who smoke cigaretts and drink alcoholic beverages.I think the legal system should give us back our freedom and let us do what ever the**** we want to do! They do,they drink their alcohol and smoke their cigaretts !!

    leeroy

    I have seen alcohol ruin the live of many good people, I agree with that part, I have smoked pot in the past, but due to it effecting my memory.......... the side effects just aren't worth it to me.


    I really think it isn't as bad as most drugs, being a plant and not a chemically manufactured drug, but I do know eventually it will effect your mind, just a personal opinion.

    I agree with McDean,there have been a lot more people killed by drunk drivers than people who smoke pot,just about everyone in our whole county drinks alcohol,including the whole police dept.,and I think alcoholic beverages should be illegal too,or else marijuana should be legalized.So if you have not tried it,don't knock it!! Coach and Angie you really think you know all about everything ,but,you really don't!!
