Umm actually marijuana is not bad at all for you. It has medicinal purposes for thousands of uses. It doesn't cause lung cancer, and you are worse off smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol than smoke a joint
I don't really understand why people do drugs. I mean, it obviously is painful (needle) and just makes you retarded. If you're trying to be cool go get an Afro or something. Jus sayin.
All drugs are bad. People do them for the following reasons: a) they are stupid b) they want attention c) both a and c
Yes they are, but they can be enjoyable and safe if taken responsibly and in moderation. I am not going to say marijuana is harmless, it is far from it, but the amount of bad rap it gets in contemporary society is largely undeserved when compared to other drugs such as tobacco and alcohol. OP deserved it for being dumb enough to get caught, but it also sucks that he has dick parents. One joint will have almost negligible effect on anyone's life, so being grounded for a year for doing something that in reality has little meaningful issues is pretty extreme. Unless, of course, your the sort of person that believes marijuana is taken through needles and it is possible to overdoes from too much THC.
There's not 1 recorded death due to marijuana in over 4000 years since it began being used. If it "Causes Cancer"? Why haven't we seen any cancer patients caused by weed, the government would make sure it's the center of medial attention so they can point to him and say, weed kills.
Watch super high me. The guy made higher test scores while he was stoned. And marijuana is better for you than alcohol. Marijuana is not a drug, it's a plant. People need to do research before they open their mouths about something they know nothing about.
Actually, weed has been proven to be harmful to the lungs (if smoked). It still has carcinogens in it. However, it has also been proven to be helpful in medicinal purposes...like, for example, someone with cancer smoked weed to increase their appetite so they would eat more.
What? Do you dumb asses think they made it illegal just to make people mad? No. We've been watching all sorts of videos on Marijuana and other illegal drugs and the main problem with all of them is that they cause Dopamine in the brain to be produced more quickly and abundantly than natural things which can cause you to only feel good by doing that drugs which causes an addiction.
Nearly all your arguments are retarded. This goes for people on both sides of the issue. Marijuana is relatively harmless. It's not completely harmless, but its damage when consumed is no more than other substances (certain foods, caffeine, alcohol, medicine) you use on a daily basis. Smoking it has it's obvious drawbacks, but then again, if you're going to smoke anyway, it's much less harmful than other smokeable substances. Honestly, McDonald's will do you more harm than an occasional joint. There are also numerous benefits of using marijuana, and a good potential for it to be an adequate replacement for other, more harmful habits or medicines. At the end of the day, each and every one of you has the responsibility to weigh the positive effects of marijuana against the negative, and decide for yourselves whether it's worth it to you, personally. Now stop judging everybody else and focus on yourself.
If they made cigarettes illegal today what would happen? It would take years to get them out of the US, and that would be just the ones that they have in stores, its not like they are going to barge into homes and search for cigarettes. they would probably have a much larger underground market than marijuana or any other drug. It's kinda like when they made alcohol illegal, people started making their own, moonshine and others were made and sold and it was too much effort and money being wasted to try and stop something that wasn't going to stop. So they re-legalized it.
I'm assuming that you can get much more high off of marijuana than most legal substances (I wouldn't know), and since people can get arrested for public intoxication, if they legalized marijuana how many people would get high and do crazy shit and cause more money to be spent on repairs and many other things.
My wise teacher told me "Marijuana itself is harmless, but when smoked thats when things are bad." Marijuana is a drug. Simple as that. And stoners are essentialy drug addicts. But since people who smoke weed think its not a drug they deny they have any problem. I have seen marijuana do more harm than good. I smoke occasionaly but because I like to; it calms me. The fact is weed isnt how it used to be; theres a hell lot more THC in it and additives. Thats why so many people become dependant on it. It really does f your life up. That being said everyone has different views on it.
You totally deserve it. If you're going to smoke a joint do it outside of the house.
Dude, you couldve diffused the situation by offering him a hit. Kids these days have no common sense.
