Is it? Because alot of my soldiers in my company tell me that it doesn't do anything to your body when you consume it, nor will it effect you later in your life. Is this true? Because I don't think it is, and I wanted to ask you fellow individuals to see whether most answers are 'yes, it's bad' or 'no it's not'.

Yes, it's bad, and it can have many long-term effects. Even if they aren't physical effects, the psychological implications are virtually listless. Use google for more info.

Take it from someone who used it quite a bit in college, it does effect your mind and body. Smoking it is just as bad as smoking tobacco to your mouth, throat and lungs, and I know a few people who's reaction times and attention spans were drastically affected since they started smoking it. It's best to just stay away from it.

This is a big argument, and while I don't know a lot about the side effects, I honestly don't think it is any more harmful than cigarettes (less actually) or taking to much advil over time (liver damage). It's one of those things that isn't illegal because its bad for you, its illegal because it alters your perception to the point were you may do something that could harm you or someone else.

I don't think its as bad as alchohol, and thats why I think it should be legallized....in limitations ofcourse. Though you're still gonna get side effects from it, but hey, that's your choice...just like cigarettes and alchohol.

But, mistake me if I'm wrong, isn't weed used for medical purpose in Hospitals?

That's medical marijuana. It's used to relax patients who are under a lot of pain.

It's used to treat glycoma...it relaxes the muscles in the body (including pressure on the eyes) which can help with this particular condition.

It' researched alot, but I don't know if there are any other uses medicinaly. I know the Native Americans used it for purposes other than just getting high...though I doubt those were medicinal either.

So what's the irrelevance between medical marijuana and weed? Aren't they both the same?:confused:

yup. One's legal, one's not. Only difference.

Of Course Weed is bad for you, it damages your Lungs... :(

It also impairs your judgement, not only causing damage to your lungs. I for one am glad it is illegal in the United States.

As far as I know, it's a lot healthier than a simple cigarette, as it is just a plant. If u don't do it frwquently you will be fine. It's not addictive as cigarette is.
Each time u inhale it, some brain cells are being delayed and some destroyed, but they are replaceable as long as u are not a serial smoker! Otherwise u will become what we refer to as "pothead" ...

If it was that bad for you, they wouldn't perscribe it to people with cancer and stuff.. I think it's just like any other substance (tobacco, alcohol, whatever) too much of it of course isn't good.

Actually...brain cells dont get replaced. As for a cigarette, tobacco is a plant, tho cigarette companies add additives to them.

People with cancer undergo chemotherapy and other various treatments which essentially poison them in the hopes that the cancer cells will die off before the rest of their body is too damaged to function.

I can honestly say that most of the very worst decisions I ever made in my life were made while either stoned or desiring to be stoned.

Not to mention several near-fatal accidents and accidental fires in cars and houses.

It's trouble. Stay away.

Hopefully I'll never try drugs. I don't think I ever will, the main reason actually being that I have no real desire to.

Nah, nothing wrong with weed, it's great for you. In fact I think I should save up for some...

Sarcasm to the extreme. Obviously it's not good for you, although how bad it is I don't know, and never will know as I've never tried and never will try it. Drugs are for losers.

Good point.
If this isn't enough, read this. My HS teacher used to do drugs when he was younger. Then later he got married and expecting a child. Then when the child was born, it was dead, PLUS it was not a pretty picture, I'll just leave it at that....... I hope you're mature enough to understand just how bad drugs are now.

You live in the netherlands (if you didn't know:p). Almost all drugs are legal there right? Or maybe I heard wrong.

I think snoop dogg got caught by swedish polices cause he imported weed to Sweden.:p

Hashish is legal too, but only if you're both 18 years old. I heard that it's really that bad if you use it on a very long term.

smoked it a couple of times, it's somewhat stronger, so I like weed more.

You can get bad trips from weed, not from hashish, that's what I like about it. Yes I've tried it once with a friend of mine a few weeks ago. I must say it was pretty good, but I won't do it again.

Well, you have to be 18 ofcourse. But there are always people who plant it themselves. Like a small 15-year old friend of mine. He's most of my source :p

Pot doesn't kill brain cells. I do.

In all seriousness, my admittedly unprofessional opinion is that marijuana can range from not really all that bad to pretty freaking bad actually. It depends on various factors like the intensity, the individual and the situation. So yeah, I'm for researching it, too, and deciding if it's worth the trouble.

It certainly messes with your judgment, but the real reason it was made illegal is because all the paper and fabrics companies new it would put them out of business, along with the pharmaceutical companies. "Weed", as you call it, makes more durable paper and better quality cloth, it's better than cotton. It can also replace a lot of medicines, it's something of a miracle drug, but because money rules it was made illegal. And because it's illegal,no you should never use it unless prescribed.

Marijuana is VERY bad for your health. People say it's good, but in reality, it's not. The ONLY thing it's good for is glaucoma. So unless you have it, unless you're ordered by a doctor, don't use it if you know what's good for ya. ;)
