Why do you think they call it "DOPE?"

I don't understand. He's clearly a member of the Cannabis Club. He had a card and everything. Not only does being a member of the Cannabis Club make marijuana into legal currency, you can have dealer quantities on you at all times. Why did they arrest him? Any club you join on the Internet should be legally recognized as well as the laws of the organization... as long as they have a webpage and everything.

If you get blackjack, they repay your bet in cocaine.

Young people who do not do it end up with a better quality of life and higher levels of educational achievement than their peers who do it. Those who become addicts early in life have lower incomes and greater health problems later in life, according to a study. Dr. Phyllis Ellickson, and her colleagues analyzed survey data from 5,833 California and Oregon middle school students. The participants completed surveys six times over a 10-year period between the ages of 13 and 23. Later, 44 percent of them responded to survey questions at age 29.

Of the 5,833 participants, 3,185 identified themselves as addicts, while 2,648 reported they did not indulge. The scientists divided the addict into four groups, based on the age at which they began using and their subsequent level of use.

Compared responses from the addicts at age 29 with data from age-matched abstainers, researchers found that abstainers had an overall higher level of educational attainment, better health, greater life satisfaction, and a lower rate of other addictions.

In contrast, those who had reported a relatively high level of use at age 13 fared significantly worse than all other groups on overall health and yearly earnings.

People underestimate the harm this can cause on many aspects of their lives, the study authors said.

Researchers in New Zealand found that addicts by the age of 15 were more than three times (300%) more likely to develop illnesses such as schizophrenia. Other research has backed this up, showing that use increases the risk of psychosis by up to 700% for heavy users, and that the risk increases in proportion to the amount of use. Additionally, the younger a person uses, the higher the risk for schizophrenia, and the worse the schizophrenia is when the person does develop it. Research by psychiatrists in inner-city areas speak of addiction being a factor in up to 80 percent of schizophrenia cases.

A recent Dutch study showed that teenagers who indulge as few as five times in their life significantly increase their risk of psychotic symptoms.

The addict needs to be willing to accept the fact that he or she is in the grip of a progressive illness and has a desire to get well. However, it will never work for the person who will not face squarely the facts about this illness.

According to a study conducted by Alec Roy, M.D. formerly at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, norepinephrine is secreted, so addicts use more to make up for their under-dosage.

Without proper controls, this could simply mean that psychotics are using pot as a means of self medication.

Signs of an ADDICT:

INABILITY AND UNWILLINGNESS TO ACCEPT REALITY. Hence the escape into the dream world.
EMOTIONAL INSECURITY. An addict finds he or she is emotionally comfortable only when chasing the dream. It is not uncommon to hear an addict say: "The only place I really felt like I belonged was there. There I felt secure and comfortable. No great demands were made upon me. I knew I was destroying myself, yet at the same time, I had a certain sense of security."
IMMATURITY. Many addictaccept the fact that they were unwilling to grow up. Subconsciously they felt they could avoid mature responsibility , and so the struggle to escape responsibility finally became a subconscious obsession.

As debts from the addiction build up people turn to other sources of money such as theft, or the sale of drugs. Also, a teenager that does not receive treatment for pathological addiction when in their desperation phase is likely to contemplate suicide. 20% of teenagers that are addicts do consider suicide. Some of them with toasters. Others with blunt force, such as hammers to the sternum.

I wouldn't say "made-up" per se. The law is probably written loosely enough to permit the charge.

I mean if you're having sex with someone other than your legally-wedded wife and not in the missionary position, in your bedroom, in the bed, under the covers, with the lights off and the shades drawn, then technically you can actually serve time. It doesn't mean the cops made it up. That's pothead talk.

This is another common characteristic of addict. A lot of time is spent creating images of the great and wonderful things. Pathetically, however, they never seems to make even the smallest dream come true. When addict indulge, they fail in reckless desperation and the depths of their misery are fathomless as their dream world comes crashing down. Sadly, they will struggle back, dream more dreams, and of course suffer more misery. No one can convince them that their greatness will not someday come crashing down, like the Berlin Wall under David Hasselhoff. They believe they will, for without this dream world, life for them would not be tolerable.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services estimates that one percent, or approximately two million Americans, struggle with this addiction. This pathological impulse is defined as "the inability to resist impulses to gamble, leading to severe personal or social consequences, such as halitosis." In other words, this addiction is as bad as any other addiction, be it hard drugs, alcohol, or nicotine. A addict is so addicted that he can't break the cycle of nonstop circling, always spinning, circling. Even the large buffets they crave never seem to stop the temptation to indulge, espcially with the shiny lights they see under the shadow of their scourge.

Wow, Valdes, you're really trying hard. I don't think anyone is taking you seriously. You might get more action in a religious or political thread, if getting a troll going is your thing. Just say something about Libs or Cons, that should get the ball rolling. Good Luck!

Current hypotheses state that schizophrenics are more likely to self-medicate. The addiction is the symptom, not the cause.

This statistic is meaningless when you consider that roughly 95% of ALL teenagers 'contemplate' suicide.

I'm guessing you are a Christian, correct?
