Seriously #25!?!?!?! That would not be the smartest thing to do. Its called a trigger. While I do not think of Weed as a drug, it is one and OP just stated that they are 1,000 days drug and alcohol FREE! Pretty inconsiderate of you to even suggest that!!! OP CONGRATULATIONS on you time put in to be and stay clean and sober. Its not easy, especially with Assholes that say, "Lets go out and drink and do some coke" Stay away from those people and triggers. And make sure you find someone to talk to to help you from relapsing!! Hell shoot me a damn message if you want!! Good luck to you!!!!

Marijuana is not physically addictive. You can mentally crave it but you'll never feel sick from not having it. I used to abuse pain pills and when I decided to quit I had chills, I randomly puked, had intense mood swings and just felt terrible. And it was definitely not weed that got me into taking pills. It was surgery. If you ask any hard drug user I guarantee you they won't tell you they smoked weed and then decided to try meth because of it. But OP congrats on being sober that long! That is a huge accomplishment! Don't let your coworker get you off track.

#6 you should really research things before you quote them as fact. the head of the DEA just said there is no such thing, just the other day... and thats his career. this is not including science and studies conducted. you know who doesnt want you to use marijuana? big, rich, pharmaceutical companies. if you start using mj or cannabis oil to cure ptsd or crohn's or cancer or glaucoma then you wont take their useless medicine and they will lose money.

Caffeine is addicting yes, ill give you that. However calling it a gateway drug in my opinion is going too far. When you get addicted to something its because it drastically increases the dopamine released in your brain so your brain adapts over time to become less sensitive to this one thing so you need more to get the same level of dopamine being released, with caffeine and coffee you'd need to drink at least a gallon a day for any major effects and most people who end up having their brain become less sensitive usually end up just drinking way too much coffee

#6, You're being sarcastic, right? Alcohol and cigarettes are a lot more addictive than weed and are the real gateway drugs. I suggest you stop buying into that stupid "reefer madness." Before you call me a druggie pothead who will say anything to justify it, I have never smoked weed. My dad has Leukemia and when it makes him sick and not hungry, it helps him get his appetite so he can eat and gain strength.

#34, you can live without sugar. Fat can be used as energy because your body will break it down until it takes the form of gluecose, which is a simple sugar that is then used in ATP synthesis or, in simpler terms, energy. Sugar is extremely addicting, but it's not needed. Carbohydrates will also break down into simple sugars, so you don't need sigar at all. Probably impossible to have a sugarless diet with the stuff on the market, but that's another thing.

You realize that carbs are just complex sugars All sugars are is energy storage devices.Without some form of sugar yes you would die. Your body wouldn't have the energy to continue the millions of chemical reactions that allow you to live. Also weed is infact very dangerous if used without a need. Anything put into the body that is not necessary for your system to maintain homeostasis is bad as it disrupts the normal funtions of the body.

#35. people go through caffeine withdrawals all the time in America. when people drink a lot of soda and coffa, and they get irritable when they don't have it. that is a withdrawal symptom. you don't have to drink gallons a day to be addicted, just like you don't have to snort mounds of cocaine to be addicted. I've watched people shiver and shake because of a lack of caffeine, likewise I've watched people go through withdrawal from pain pills, coke, methadone, and heroin with less symptoms all the way up to full blown seizures. like we better pump some detox meds into them or they are going to drown in their grits.. and yes, I found out in jail, that you can drown in grits. it's sad and funny at the same time

You sir, are one of the most ignorant people of whom I have ever heard. Mirajuana is EXTREMELY addictive and can still cause negative side effects.

#111, do you know what is also addictive and can cause negative side effects? Oxycontin, morphine, Valium, Adderall, and Tylenol. There are a lot more that are addictive and can kill you which are legal. Please go on how marijuana is worse than those drugs.

#118: That's adorable. You're making fun #112's weight when you're a lot heavier than she is. Oh, you must have missed where she said she never smoked it. Don't make fun of someone when you have no room to talk.

@112 I understand that your father has a legitimate need to use pot. What I don't understand is why you're attacking people and putting words in their mouths. #111 didn't say that pot is worse than all of those other drugs, she only said that pot can be bad, which is true.

#6 - Cannabis isn't addictive, and it has already been proven that it actually isn't a gateway. But government wants people to think so otherwise. Learn your shit before thinking you're correct.
