bin_smokin us pot smokers are a lot smarter than people give us credit for

Well we are winning the war on drugs, despite billions upon billions in worldwide funding and the efforts of many national governments.
I'd say that's pretty smart :)

I actually know some people whose lives HAVE been ruined by pot. Namely, one is a friend of my boyfriend who seriously does nothing but sit at home all day and smoke pot. He's ALWAYS high. And he won't go anywhere with us without getting high beforehand. That's partly why we don't hang out with him much. That and all the pot smoking he does has really screwed up his lungs. Every time he coughs it sounds like his lungs are full of crap.

And so, if there were no pot, he'd live a healthy and productive life? No. He'd find another excuse to not do anything with his time. Because he was a dickhead to begin with. Don't blame pot, blame him.

And in high school, I fell in with this pot crowd that were pretty much the same as the guy above. People whose only ambition in life was to get high.


And if they didn't have pot? They'd have no ambition whatsoever. Again, don't blame pot, blame the idiots you fell in with. They'd still be idiots if there was no pot.


There are probably a lot of people who can smoke weed and
not have it be a big deal.


Yes, a lot. The entire population of Earth, actually.


But some people DO get addicted to it, and it farks up their lives. Addiction can happen with just about everything, not just drugs.


'Mental' addiction is a blanket term used for people who crutch on external excuses. If you become addicted to cheeseburgers, its because you hate your life. The same is true for people who become 'addicted' to pot. Don't blame pot. Blame morons like Jadedgrl. She also killed Jesus.

"Two cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, are expressed in mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish."

..."We hypothesize that cannabinoid receptors evolved in the last common ancestor of bilaterians, with secondary loss occurring in insects and other clades. Conflicting data regarding Cnidarians precludes hypotheses regarding the last common ancestor of eumetazoans. No cannabinoid receptors are expressed in sponges, which probably diverged before the origin of the eumetazoan ancestor."

You take any typical stupid apathetic underachiever and give them any recreational drug, you'd have a high stupid apathetic underachiever. If this person also has a tendency to substance abuse, then you probably now have someone that is going to be stupid and apathetic for life.

werekoala: Cannabis is one of the few Schedule I drugs under the DEA. That means it has no known medicinal value or research value.

Yup-- As stated by the same government that offers Marinol, the drug that offers you all the medicinal benefits of Cannabis (according to medical studies). Wanna guess which costs more?

You forgot improved appetite which is one of the most important aspects for terminally ill patients who are often too immobalized by pain or just don't have the will to eat.


Ah, yes. My aunt, an oncology nurse and cancer survivor, had trouble getting my grandma to eat when she was going through chemo months before she died of cancer. She was too weak to continue with chemo because she wasn't eating. But they turned down my offer to ask around and procure some medicine (which isn't hard at all, since the "War on Drugs" was never meant to be won and the real reason it exists is to make class-based punishments for something that is as much of a crime as a negro riding in the front of the bus).

I almost fixed your spelling error, but I'm not a dickhead.

Pot costs the same as gold, on average, over the years, per ounce.
Can anyone here afford to purchase an ounce of gold, and then reduce it to ashes, and never see it again?
Choose wisely.


First off, no it doesn't. Lastly, money isn't real and you can't put a price on fun experiences (since money isn't real, and therefore you cannot put a real price on anything).

I fixed your spelling error.

This is silly. We oughta legalize the stuff, and tax the hell out of it, just like alcohol and cigarettes. And make it illegal for minors to buy it, just like alcohol and cigarettes.

(Won't stop the little bastards from getting it, but no sense making it TOO easy... now get off my lawn!)

On the other hand, meth freaks and heroin addicts should be shot on sight.

Meth and heroin are truly horrible drugs. With meth, it's almost as if somebody went out and deliberately tried to invent a drug that really IS as dangerous as the drugs our parents have been warning us about.

Meh.

Problem with Blink: He's obviously never smoked pot.

Pot's like pepper on experience, it heightens it, makes you appreciate it more. But Blink would not know that, because like so many others, he professes to know about things he's never experienced.


Other things I have not experienced (experimentally) that I have opinions on: Abortion, NFL football, Religious Fanatacism, Old age, the comic "Cathy", Inhalents, shooting people with guns, pedophilia, necrophilia, pyrobestialnecrophilia, piercings, conversing with Star Jones, Best Buy Geek Squad service, etc, etc...

If it makes you feel better though, I am well-versed in social education, and I've witnessed enough losers-in-action to identify trends.

I don't think smoking pot makes you a loser... but I do believe that ambitiously lazy people gravitate towards it to achieve a feel-good sensation that they're too unmotivated to obtain by actually accomplishing something.

What's really strange is when people inform me they're a better person because they burnt a weed in their mouth. Sucking on paper and leaves is not an accomplishment.

Too generalize stereotypes as usual. I knew alot of people in college who smoked pot who were actually quite cool. And they were polite and considerate enough to not do it around me because they knew I didn't like it.

Also contrary to stereotype...I knew 2 guys who smoked pot regularly who were both actually really smart.

Finally...found out a guy I went to school with was recently fired because his employer found out he been arrested with pot on him a few years back. Anyway...if I were ever legalized...I'd probably try it at least once...otherwise I would never do it. Just my personal opinion.

But yeah I agree that pot should be legalized...so the government can tax the hell out of it...and maybe stop taking so much out of my paychecks...but that's probably not going to happen...

There we agree. But again, blame the person, not the distraction.

What's really strange is when people inform me they're a better person because they burnt a weed in their mouth. Sucking on paper and leaves is not an accomplishment.

No, but seeing the state induced by said weed for what it is and, further, reflecting on yourself in a different light as a result *can* make you accomplish things you might not have otherwise. This isn't something thats exclusive to altered states, but its something altered states can provide.

Yes, it's the same old "instant gratification" aspect. But there are those that don't just sit around and get high. I actually got high recently, and I spent the day ruling Star Wars Battlefront. This was because I actually had driven 2+ hours to hang out with some friends from college (I'm the only loser in my CIS department to receive a research grant my senior year) and just have fun. Some one had some, I had done it more than once prior to this day, and I just wanted to relax with friends. No harm done. I had nothing better to do at the time than to enjoy life.

Now, right now I am sober and applying to jobs (3.9% unemployment in the city is LOW, especially when it considers jobs above me and jobs below me [well, jobs I didn't "need" (you never need, but the employers fall for this) to get a degree to obtain], and jobs in another area of profession that I am not qualified for, and then add to it the 7,000 discouraged workers who aren't actively looking in that area). Sometimes people do so much that they don't really have time to just sit back and relax. Sometimes you need a little help (blowjobs are good for that). Then you have uptight spazzy people who really need to chill out.

Well, you end on a high note by pointing out that people who do any activity to be considered cool rather than because they enjoy it are the lamest of the lame.

just what stereotype is that? Many of the smartest people the world has ever seen were fond of altering their states of consciousness. There is a (huge) difference between mj use and mj abuse. Smart people recognize this and may still partake.

What about people who just blindly follow what a government, which, let's face it, is owned by corporations, tells them to do. Is that "smart"?

And smoking pot definitely makes you a dickhead. Before you know it, you'll probably start posting advertisements telling people that don't conform to your perception of reality what dickheads they are for not seeing things the way you do.

All these people so passionate about defending pot smokers really need to find something to do with their lives instead of getting high.

I quit smoking a while ago but will always defend pot smokers because I know that Prohibition is complete folly and always causes far more problems than it solves. Sorry to not conform to your myopic, and rather childish, worldview.

Only losers use drugs to escape.

true. of course there are many, many other reasons to use drugs. Are you ok with all of those?



trappedspirit

you have absolutely no way of knowing that. There are millions of very successful, closeted marijuana users in this country - Clinton or Obama could certainly be among them. See one problem with Prohibition? It prevents an honest dialog or assessment from even being possible.
