In my opinion, I would rather go to jail than to smoke weed. And I'm sure the op prefer getting grounded than to smoke the weed, or else he would have stolen some probably.
48-That's the part that was an opinion. If he'd rather do that, then that's his perogative. It doesn't make him stupid. Honestly, with this issue there are strong arguments on both sides, so it's difficult for me to firmly take a side. So instead, I just read what each side has to say about it...objectively, rather than being opinionated.
In my personal opinion weed is really not that bad, I obviously see the negative effects for someone who smokes quite often but for someone who only does on special occasions or maybe ever week it really doesn't do anything that bad, I only smoke maybe once a week and I'm still on honor roll I still have a great GPA... it's only when you abuse like my mom did that you end up really screwed :p
Cant people just NOT want to do drugs of any kind ever bc they just don't want to? Do they HAVE to be ignorant about drugs if they don't want to? Does it fucking matter if they want to do drugs or not. Personally, I think drugs are stupid and if your life revolves around it, yes even weed, then you might want to reevaluate a few things.
Jesus Christ people. What day and age will it be when everyone stops bitching about a PLANT being smoked its a damn herb. It's used medically. Yoi can't even overdose on it. Listen to this. He meds your doctor gives you, read the side effects. Most of them say, could cost failure of some organ or death or some bad side effect. This is weed's side effect. Amazing ass time for few hours. Minor brain cells lost( you make so many in one day unless you're a pothead it won't effect you really) No connections to cancer. You may run slighty smaller distances since you are smoking. Also it's used as a painkiller for cancer patients and many more medical problems, stimulate appetite and alleviate cachexia, control nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy, decrease intraocular pressure, analgesia, and neurological and movement disorders and many more. So please you uneducated people about marijuana maybe go research it before jumping to conclusions on how it's bad for you. In addition it would make billions of dollars surplus in this country, Dutch has made, don't quote me but i know it's between 3.2-4.2 billion dollars a year, USA would defiently make more. Also crime rate would go down... Create more jobs and countless people from going to jail which would save us a outstanding amount of money.
#66.....actually the chance of zero has become increased to zero because YOU CANNOT BE ADDICTED TO WEED. you can want it, but it has the addictive qualities of something like pizza. also, I have mixed feelings about legalizing it, but I do think that things like cigarettes which are much more harmful should not be legal if weed isn't. There's not much of a balance.
I feel like the only way people say they hate drugs, have never done any, I understand the dangers and such, but they're pretty fun! Ha (I respect peoples opinions though) I've tried a variety of drugs during my life, I tried marijuana in 6th grade, but I don't do any on a regular basis, but my family always has a track record of trying everything when they're young and then quitting easily I've never been addicted. My dad was the craziest person when he was younger, he has gone on to very successful. I suppose that makes Me lean to the positive drug side, but I have seen it ruin people's lives, so I think it's all in being responsible about drugs.
I agree that tobacco is worsein terms of the physical effects but I know so many people who have suffered mental illness due to smoking weed. My Aunty was with a guy who smoked weed his whole life and developed schizophrenia and he picked her up and threw her across the room (and she is a pretty big lady) in front of their four year old son. Also, my step grandmother's daughter developed bipolar disorder from smoking weed. And OP, I feel sorry for you having to live with parents like that. Even if you did smoke it they shouldn't punish you. You're only following their bad example!
87- Like someone else commented saying weed is as addictive as pizza, weed has no nigotine in it and is not addictive at all, pick your favorite food that you eat alot of, that's what kind of addiction weed is to people, it's more of just something you like just like food tastes good, nigotine is a completely different kid of addiction same with herion addicion, weed is not nearly the same.
I'm gonna nerd it up! First of all, marijuana is one of the least addictive drugs out there. But it can affect brain development, like someone said earlier. What most people don't realize is that smoking a joint and smoking a cigarette has pretty much the same effect on the lungs. Both types of smoke has many of the same toxins. So really, while if you do want to do drugs, marijuana is one of the better options over cocaine or heroin, it's still harmful. So don't think that it's "healthy" because it's "organic" or anything.
Marijuana is better than tobacco. Its a drug, but since it can't be sold legally, it would just be the plant being smoked. There are poisons added to cigarettes along with tar and other crap. Marijuana won't have any of that added since its illegal, there are no companies trying to raise its price.
And I smoke it maybe once every other week. I still have a gpa of 98%, I'm in the national honor society, and I'm ranked 25th in my school. Since my gpa has gone up since I started smoking pot, I feel that it doesn't make people stupid, but stupid people blame pot for why they're stupid.
i'm gonna add my own three cents to this discussion and add that as a student in a school with abundant marijuana smokers, dealing with "potheads" can be infinitely frustrating when trying to do anything besides joke around with them. Based on this and the fact that concentration in school never hurts, I believe it does have a harmful affect on children at least. Adults may be a different story though.
173, my brain isn't working well right now so I'm not entirely sure whether you are agreeing with me or if the "FYL" was directed towards me. However, regardless of that, the human body doesn't make more brain cells or muscle cells. It only repairs them if possible, which will probably end up as scar tissue in a muscle. My arguments carry no weight considering I'm still just a student in highschool so someone, preferably a medical doctor, please help out here if necessary. Or better yet, it's probably on the internet somewhere, so google it. And if I'm wrong, well just correct me and I'll wait for the flood of thumb downs.
Marijuana doesn't destroy brain cells it essentially clogs them for weeks after you stop using Marijuana. So stop with all the shit. No one knows how good or bad it is for you because no REAL studies have been done because it is illegal to have. The only studies will be done by the government and those will be biased. So before you go arguing over something that has no facts
I tried smoking weed once when I was a little kid, then I found out that there were two kinds of "weed" and I had the wrong kind.
Report them to the police! That ought to show them.
I would've asked them to share with me. They can't exactly tell you not to do it since they're doing it. It'd be hypocitical of them, right? :)
17 has a point. Just because parents do something, that doesn't make it okay for their kids to do it. It's not hypocrisy; pArents are adults and able to make their own choices. A child still young enough to be grounded is not. So if they were alcos would that make it okay for OP to drink underage? Or since the parents have sex, does that make it okay for OP to have sex (if OP is underage)? No, it doesn't.
