Actually, pot is in no way more harmful than cigarettes. In fact, it causes less respiratory issues, and does hold some beneficial effects.

Reply

Marijuana causes just as many respiratory problems. The whole, "Pot is better for you than cigarrettes," is an old wives tale. The only reason the stats are lower is because some people ingest it without smoking it. Fact is, it's still a mind altering substance that can cause problems. It does have some good medical applications, but that's of course for the people who aren't just abusing it. Smoking anything is bad for you. Period. That's why medical marijuana dispensaries

@64 Pot is actually better for you than tobacco. There have been numerous studies which have shown that heavy marijuana smokers exhibit no obstruction in the lung's airways. This indicates that marijuana does not cause emphysema. Obviously smoking anything is bad for you. As you stated, there's edible alternatives, as well as things like vaporisers, etc. Also, a lot of people smoke marijuana with tobacco, which means the negative effects of tobacco will be present. This is also where the &

Eating fast food is also very bad for your health, so i get to go to the local Mcdonalds and repo the Big Mac that the obese people were eating. I do not condone marijuana, but i am not against it either. The only time ive been against it was when my buddy tried to use my army gas mask to make a bong or something of the sorts, i wasnt gonna let that fly. Cellphones are also bad for you, that amount of radiation cannot be good so close to your brain, do i get to smash peoples blackberry,

I'm not against marijuana. I'm not a fan of it, personally, but I'm not stupid enough to see that it doesn't have good qualities. My brother has a medical marijuana license because he used to get migraines 1-2 times per week (starting at the age of 11 or 12?). I absolutely agree with him having it. He also doesn't abuse it. When I said abuse before, I mean the people who can't go 30 minutes without having more. I also mean the people who make up disorders just to buy it legally. Whereas fa

Way to stereotype... I'm hardly what you'd call a hippie underachiever, and generally people debating against pot have just been misinformed. I don't smoke it regularly, and have no misconceptions of it being "amazing" and "everyone should do it". I'm just of the opinion that it should be legalised, and there's currently no valid argument why it isn't, especially given that tobacco and alcohol are legal.

I don't mean to sound anal, I probably will. I hate smoking. It is killing my sister (who has pancreatitis and doesn't seem to realize that drinking and SMOKING will kill her), it killed my grandfather and causes my asthma to skyrocket. Beside that point (that I think it is disgusting) I do not mind if people want to do it in the privacy of their own home. No one has the right to deny you your smokes. But if Op is living at home and under 18 then his mother has a legal and I guess "moral&qu

Personally I think the increased liklihood of developing a psychological disorder is a valid reason why it should not be legal but that's just me.

Reyo, i hope your not classifing me as a "hippie underachiever" That would be by far the most off target thing said about me on the internet.

On another note, Reyo, school is by far stupid. Famous words of Benjamin Franklin : " I never let mys schooling interfere with my education" School, by far is stupid, i was never challenged in high school, not once, i skipped more days of high school then people that have dropped out, and carried a 3.8 GPA. And i whole heartedly believe that the things i learned on the days when i wasn't in school, have benefited me more then any class in high school. Im not trying to start a

I hate when people think that because pot is illegal, it's worse. Tobacco is far more damaging. Alcohol is one of the #1 worst DRUGS ever. You cant get addicted to pot, like you can with alcohol and cigarettes. Stupid close minded/uneducated people....and to the OP- Its called a vacuum cleaner.

Reply

I'm not an under achiever just because of my opinion on pot. If they made it legal, then the government could put a tax on it and sell it- therefore improving the economy. I am 14, and have never smoked pot before, but at least I know what I am talking about. So being educated in drugs makes me an underachiever? Wow. Sure, school sucks, but I'm not about to drop out. I'm going to Carolina thank you very much.

Reply

well at least your getting busted now, if your smart enough to stop you'll avoid a lot of health problems that include lack of a gf because cigaretts kill you from the inside out painfully and slowly, and does make you ugly.

even habitual pot smokers smoke waay less then cigarette addicts, and weed, being illegal, doesn't have all the factory-added carcinogens that cigarettes do. so, smoking bud has much fewer harmful affects on one's body than cigarettes. it does, however, kill brain cells and causes one to have poor short term memory, but at least that doesn't kill you

Reply

#182 - Actually the myth of Pot killing brain cells is a mere misconception. The way the test was done was illegitimate and truly a dispicable way of testing. Period. They basically suffocated the test subjects (Which were at the time Monkeys) by putting masks on them and filling them with nothing but smoke from burning Marijuana. A symptom of suffication is the loss of Brain Cells. The memory loss I have nothing to say to combat that as I hve had short term memory loss my whole life, and so hav

Reyo - I find it quite hysterical that you would call pot smokers "Underachievers" and people who say "School is stupid, man".... But yet you have so much improper grammar, and horrible spelling. I must admit though I do support peace, and I have a beard and long hair (Which I will be getting cut) but yet I'm not a hippie because of matters that will take too long to explain. Also I have learned quite a deal more when I was out of school than when I was in. I have barely skipped any days of scho

Reyo is one of the only people right in this blog! To the guy above me: if the first part of your argument is attacking his grammer, you've already lost. and I've said this before, I LOVE it when people like you say "I smoke and I'm a genious so bleh!" really eh? mmhm... And doesn't kill brain cells?? Then what the fuck is it doing cause every pothead I've met are so stupid they should be claimed disabled. Pot makes you lazy, and dumb. No, there are no addictive parts to it so you "can quit a

You're SORRY? This OP is probably underage, plus smoking is crappy and you have to be an inconsiderate, selfish jerk to ever do that to the people around you in the first place. I would've built a shed in the yard. It'd have its own little shower stall and an outhouse nearby; I'd run an extension cord out to it for a microwave and a little mini-fridge, which I would stock with food. I'd put blankets in it. Then I'd kick his smoke-reeking butt out of MY house, and tell him to NEVER come back i

Unless she's a minor, it's still her decision. The better way to handle it would have been to sit down and talk to her. People seem to over-react a quite a bit when smoking is involved.

Glad to see you're accepting of other people's choices, 23. What right have you to tell people what they can and cannot do with their lives?

i dissagree, even if laws become better it doesn't meen that smoking is something good, quite the opposite I personaly dispise people who smoke simply because it's a senceless act of self-harm. you're free to deside wether to smoke or not, you're also free to deside wether to stab youreself in the eye with. being free to decide doesn't make them free from judgement

@23 You're quite wrong. According to your logic, I'm free to go around hitting everyone who eats a McDonalds, or everyone who drinks. Oh, you have a wine cellar? Well alcohol is legal, but isn't good for you. I think I'll just smash every bottle of wine you own. You know what is against the law though? Destruction of property. And assault, so no hitting them upside the head either. @27 There's plenty of things that people do that self harm. People drink, smoke, eat their favourite food, par

Honestly just let the girl go outside to smoke. She won't affect anyone and maybe even will go smoking less because her mother won't actually go on a rampage but just shows her she is disappointed in her daughter and she has to go outside to smoke so she first will have to get the cigarettes, put on a jacket and stand outside in rain or cold weather if she's unlucky. If it's just a temporary habit you'll get rid of it that way after a while but if she's really a smoker and is old enough to legal

I hope you aren't serious. Smoking causes lung cancer. It's a direct cause and effect relationship. Brush up on your research and don't be ignorant. Doctors don't just say stuff like that to scare you. It's been scientifically proven to be the LEADING cause of lung cancer. I'd love to see your reasonings for not believing scientific research.

Reply

The leading cause of lung cancer is CANCER. Smoking has been proven to increase the risk of cancer, but someone if someone gets lung cancer you can't prove weather or not that was caused by the smoking. People have been getting cancer before sigs were even invented, it's not some magical tumour growing stick, people need more sense.

Her Mom is stupid by dumping it upon her bed, but maybe her mom doesn't want her daughter to become a junky.

Reply

If the mother had access to the daughter's bed, kitty litter and laundry (to find the cigarettes) then it seems the daughter was in the mothers house. Despite the age limit, the mother has a right (as she pays the bills) to say what actions are done on her property. My mother lost her father to lung cancer and as I said before, my sister is killing herself because she refuses to stop smoking. It might be the choice of the person, but what about those of us watching you smoke your life away. Op,

Because smoking was involved. Apparently that instantly means YDI. Could even be something like "Today, I was having a cigarette outside. I saw a toddler crossing the street in front of a car and ran out to save it. I succeeded. Afterwards someone shot me with not warning. FML". People would still vote YDI for smoking.

Reply

The fact is, if her mother found the cigs in her pocket, that probably means the OP lives at home. If the OP lives at home, she is most likely underage. Even if she isn't underage, she is still living under her mother's roof. I used to smoke, and more than once, my mom threw my cigs away. That was when I was living out on my own at 25, too. I would never take that as an fml. That was her trying to show that she didn't approve, and tbh, she shouldn't have. Why would she want to see me s

Reply

Why are so many people pointing out that the OP might be under 18, and thus be smoking illegally? Notice that she's in the Aland Islands, NOT the US! I don't believe there are any age limits on smoking there!

I understand that smoking can affect those around you, but in my case the effect is completely minimal. I'm nearly 23, and still live at home. Trying to rent, let alone buy, anywhere decent in Ireland is insane without a decent job (and currently that's quite hard to get). I'm just out of University too, with an excellent degree. The fact is, I've smoke for years. My family didn't notice at all until I told them, and they still frequently ask because they just can't tell otherwise. Both my pa

Reply

Either way, she most likely still lives at home. In that case, it's still her mother's rules. I mean, if she found the cigarettes in her pocket and left them with kitty litter on the OP's bed, it's pretty likely she still lives at home. Sorry, even if you're an adult living at home, you don't really get free reign. OP probably is not paying for rent or food or basic needs at home. Therefore, she needs to abide by her parents rules.

Reply

Vile, I understand that, but there are many smokers who are NOT respectful of the people around them. I always was, and I tried to stay away from people when I did it. Even though you're 23 and living at home, your family doesn't seem to be so absolutely opposed to it. I can't fault the mother. If the OP knew her mother hated smoking that much, she should have never brought the cigs into the house. When I stayed at my mom's, I always kept my cigarettes in my car. It's a respect issue. As

Reply

In that case, I'd definitely rate it as a FML. If the OP's parent's don't respect her privacy or her decision, then it's a bad situation. Rules are one thing, and you should always have respect for those you live with, if they're your family or not, but the mother went a bit too far. She could have easily had a discussion with the daughter instead of that knee-jerk reaction. I highly doubt the OP is going to stop smoking, and the mother is probably only going to impose more unjust rules. I

Reply

@72 True that a lot of smokers aren't respectful. I just presumed that the OP's mother might respect her privacy (since the cigarettes were in her pocket), and I consider it a FML because she didn't. I also thought the reaction was very over-the-top. I would presume that the only place the OP could keep the cigarettes is in the house. I'm not sure how many people drive over there, but I would presume it wouldn't be too high given the overall area of the Aland Islands.

Reply

I guess Im just used to the fact that there is NO privacy in my mom's house. For people that are used to it, it's not usually a big deal, lol.

Reply

@47, since apparently a real answer wasn't given, just a dumb conversation. It's because only idiots smoke. Any FML involving the OP smoking is a YDI. Nothing actually good ever comes out of it.

Reply

@81 Ah, that would explain it. I've seen a couple of situations like that (people who's parents would frequently go through all their drawers, closets, etc). I think it's quite insane. Once I was 14 or so, my parents didn't poke around my room. They'd come in occasionally with washed clothes, etc., but even these they'd just leave on the bed. @90 So just because I choose to smoke, I'm an idiot? Wow, that's an insanely ignorant comment. There are actually people who enjoy smoking, just like

Empty the cakes, chocolates, butter, cheese on your moms bed and throw some extra kitty litter on it. They are worse than cigarettes for her health.

No. No, they really aren't. If that's all she ate all the time, yeah, but what are the chances of that? Cigarretes cause lung cancer. Plain and simple. Not they CAN, they DO. Cake, butter, and all that CAN cause obesity that leads to other issues. It doesn't necessarily, though. There's a Huge difference between a possibility and a direct cause.

Not to mention it's also bad for the people around you while eating cake butter and that other shit only effect you
