Once again, a post about weed that completely ignores the fact that it damages you, like cigarettes and alcohol. Why legalise something that is harmful and potentially dangerous? I won't deny you feel chilled while under the influence, but it impares your judgement as much as alcohol does, no matter what stoners claim. If it's legalised, so be it. But it'll just mean easier access to something that will eventually give you a mental illness, as surely as alcohol damages your liver. Just saying.

There is no amount of face palm in existence to express my frustration at your stupidity.

Wait, legalising it would make it EASIER to get? I think you are very much mistaken. Thats why we need the whole concept of regulation.

marijuana does not impair your judgement nearly as much as alcohol does. just saying.

No, but it still does :) As with alcohol, it depends how much you have.

drunkest ive ever been = laying in friends back yard, puking, 4 people taking care of me. wondering where my girlfriend is, and if shes okay, cant remember where i am, and can only recognize voices of people. faces are blurred, all senses are numb.

highest ive ever been = sat in recliner, stared at carpet pattern and listened to kid cudi: man on the moon 6 times through.

Haha fair enough XD Don't think you would have been in any condition to drive in either situation though I think? As I said before, it's not the weed I have the issue with, it's the people denying the harmul effects. I'd be just as narked if someone claimed alcohol wasn't harmful.

Marijuana does not affect motor skills like alcohol does. Judgement is barely effected.
A rule of thumb that should be used is if you already suck at driving, don't drive high.

i agree that its potentially harmful, im just making my point that its less harmful than things that are currently legal.
User avatar #31 to #29 - BerryLicious ONLINE (04/24/2012) [-]
I know :) But, what's made me laugh is almost everyone has ignored the fact I was arguing against those who deny harmful effects, not the weed itself. Loving that opinions and facts still aren't tolerated there ^_^ But oh well each to their own.

i respect your opinion. and yes indeed kind sir, each to their own.

there has been no recorded deaths caused by marijuana. Cigarettes and alcohol are far more damaging than weed and they are legal.
#46 to #16 - anon (04/24/2012) [-]
No primary deaths. To go into this arguement, you need a knowledge of how death is categorized. Many things that you may consider "primary" cause is actually a "secondary" cause - a contributing factor, the cause of the actual cause, etc. Marijuana has been the secondary cause of many deaths.

Not for or against, just saying this argument is retarded without knowledge of this.

How about all the road accidents and accidental deaths of those who are under the influence? Please, do have a look at some more of the research. Weed is just as harmful. For example; normally, when one smokes a joint, no filter is used. Maybe a roach, but no filter. that, unfortunately, leaves all of the carcinogens and other chemicals and such to go straight into your lungs. Just as bad a s cigarettes I'm afraid. As for bongs, I'm not so sure.

legalise weed, dont smoke it, reap economic benefits from stoner's, stoner's allowed to smoke, win win
User avatar #18 to #17 - neoncookie (04/24/2012) [-]
Just as many deaths happen due to people driving under the influence of alcohol. Obviously if it was legalized there would be regulations, just like there are with alcohol eg. no driving, only over age people can buy it ect. if the government can be happy with having cigarettes legal then why not weed ?
User avatar #20 to #18 - BerryLicious ONLINE (04/24/2012) [-]
I'm not denying that good sir. The difference is, at least in the eyes of the law, cigarettes and alcohol (and rollerblading) have been legal for so long, there would be outrage if they were banned. Look at America in the 1920's. However, steps are being taken to attepnt to cut usage. At least where I'm from. Regardless, people will continue to use drugs, legal ones included, and die. If someone wants to use it, fine, if they are an adult. But I do not agree with posts that claim there is nothing bad about weed when there clearly is. That is my issue.

I know there will be negative outcomes and health issues, but i think with weed the pro's of legalization would out weigh the cons.
User avatar #22 to #21 - BerryLicious ONLINE (04/24/2012) [-]
I just don't see any pro's. Easier access, a good thing? More money for governments? Lets be honest, not much of that, if any will come back into the the system. Think of how expensive things like cigarettes have become over the last five years, and the economy is still quite messy.
User avatar #23 to #22 - neoncookie (04/24/2012) [-]
The government will get more money, and theres pro's it has on you, thats why people smoke it. You feel more relaxed and chilled out and personally i find it easier to talk to people if ive had weed, and i feel more confident. I dont abuse the drug
User avatar #24 to #23 - BerryLicious ONLINE (04/24/2012) [-]
Which is your choice. I expect one who smokes cigarettes would say the same. I just don't think weed should be legalised. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. As I have said before, my problem is the people who constantly cry "weed is good, weed is good! Nowt wrong with it, it's good for you!" When that is not true. Vhemenently denying the harmful effects is a classic example of an addiction. I'm not saying you are, my friend, you have been very civil and your arguments are well balanced. I trust you understand my own arguments however?
