This is all absolute ******** .
Marijuana is bad for you because:
a) prolonged regular use can cause schizophrenia, paranoia and many other forms of psychosis.
b) it dramatically weakens your immune system. If you smoke pot a lot or know anyone who does, you will probably notice you get sick a lot. If not, you're a lucky one.
c) The post was correct in saying that it's a psychological addiction, rather than a chemical one (e.g. nicotine) but the psychological addiction from a drug that gets you high is FAR more powerful than a regular psychological addiction. It's addictive in the same sort of level in your psychology as anorexia/bulemia, phobias, or trauma.
d) While it's not chemically addictive, it DOES completely **** up the chemical balance in your brain, which is partly what causes some psychosis.
e) It is carcinogenic. So while no reported cases of cancer may have been attributed to marijuana, it can still cause cancer.

Btw, hemp, which is defined as marijuana with a low enough THC content so it won't get you high, IS PERFECTLY LEGAL EVERYWHERE, so your argumant about companies losing out is also ******** . The fact remains that while occasional use is almost always harmless, heavy use is extremely bad for your health. In my opinion there is an even better reason why you shouldn't use it. It funds crime gangs.

Think about it. Where does it come from? Your dealer. Where did they get it from? Their dealer. Where did they get it from? Eventually you find it's source in one of two places. Either it was smuggled in (guess who runs the drug smuggling business... yep, crime gangs) or was grown in the country. Guess who also smuggles illegal immigrants into countries solely for the purpose of gardening and farming their marijuana... yep, again, it's the crime gangs. The same people who smuggle guns, explosives and immigrants. The same people who kill anyone who tries to stop their business and who directly and indirectly cause a huge percentage of crime nationally.

Sigh...

Don't get your info from "weed is a miracle plant" websites.

#1: Anything that gets you high kills brain cells. Killing brain cells isn't hard. I can kill brain cells by rocking my head back and forth.

#2: There are a lot of studies that say it doesn't cause lung cancer. There are a lot that says that it does. Any smoke that you put in your lungs is causing damage to your lungs.

#3: Pot itself can't really kill you. As long as you use it safely, you'll probably be fine. IE, ingest it instead of smoking it, don't eat enough to hurt you, etc.

#4: This is the only legitimate fact. LSD is also a psychological addiction.

#5: Almost any illegal drug will help with pain and nausea and such. Pot doesn't have any real medical value, it's used on cancer patients though because it makes them hungry and helps with the pain of chemo.

#6: Is the lumber company really going to hurt because you can make stuff out of hemp? My house is made out of brick.

It's illegal because people still see it as a drug. These false facts aren't helping. At all. Spreading misinformation is not going to help with the legalization of cannabis. Get information from real studies next time, not propaganda.

But lets be honest, you don't give a **** about any of those things, you just want to be able to get high without getting in trouble.

if every ******* stoner spent as much time working on things that would actually help mankind rather then wasting every last second trying to find every little thing that the marajuana plant MAY be able to do, we would have nuclear fusion by now

It's not the pot that causes lung cancer, it's the fact that you are inhaling something that is on fire. No matter what it is, tar is going to get into your lungs and then you're ******

Read that, completely. Most of the stuff you are showing is only partially true. Marijuana does cause lung cancer, but at the same level as cigarettes.

And marijuana does kill, but it would never be listed that way for a cause of death. If someone who smokes cigarettes dies of cancer, the cause of death would be cancer, not tobacco. With that logic tobacco is completely safe and nobody has ever died from it.

Also, that crap about it being some sort of miracle medicine and hemp putting out every industry known to mankind is mostly crap.
It has its uses, but I doubt you will be able to treat anything other than small amounts of pain with marijuana.

In the same respect, hemp could not be used for furniture or architecture, unlike wood obtained from logging.
As for textiles, your insane if you think hemp will be as luxurious as silk and cashmere or as rugged as denim. It might be equivalent to cotton in some roles, but not all.

The pharmacuetical industry would not fall if weed were legal. Weed is not a "wonder drug" that cures a ton of things. The wood industry wouldn't fall either because we use wood for things other than paper. Oil wouldn't fall either because biomass would have to be cheaper, available at every gas station, and almost EVERY car would have to be replaced.

The government does't give two ***** about marijuana. There's no massive conspiracy to supress it.

ANY mind altering stubstance has potential to kill or harm you. That's just the way it works. You can drink too much WATER and die.

You really don't care about any of the other things weed can do, you just want to get high.
Can't you all just admit you simply want to get high?

Good point but it doesn't change the fact that inhaling smoke will always damage lung tissue and ruin efficiently. More you smoke, less lung capacity, lowered ability to run from the zombie horde.

Just want to point out a few things:
1.) Inhaling ANY smoke causes damage to the lungs. Whether it be from tobacco, marijuana or sitting to close to a bonfire, inhaling smoke is bad. This also includes causing brain cells to die, however as long as you don't kill your brain cells too fast you are fine (they do regrow, and die quite often even without the 'help' of drugs)...
2.) You can get addicted to the weed, but you can't feel the affects of the addiction because the chemicals in marijuana hang around your body for quite a few days afterwards (which is why you need to stop smoking it a while before a drug test). If you took a second chemical that basically stopped you from getting any effects from the drug, you would in fact have withdrawals. It's just because your body kinda stockpiles the chemical and releases it over time that you don't feel the withdrawal symptoms.
3.) I don't think there are any medical benefits to weed. It just gets you high. Any "medical effects" are just side effects of getting high with it.
4.) You would have to smoke a lot to die just from the chemicals itself, but you could still kill yourself if you do something like drive a car while you are high. If someone drives drunk and gets in an accident then you blame the alcohol, so if someone drives high and likewise gets in an accident you should blame whatever it was they took to get high.
5.) So most of us tried alcohol first. What does that have to do with anything? The fact is, most people try weed before moving on to harder stuff. In fact, I can't think of a single person who takes or has taken harder drugs without trying weed first. However, there are also a lot of people who don't do anything harder than weed, so making it sound like EVERYONE who takes weed will end up taking harder stuff is certainly false.
