Xlr8urfark: Mercutio74: Ivan Dejesus: eidohntno: Our family still mourns his death, and we hope that many out there are warned not to use this dangerous drug.
Marijuana has destroyed our lives, and we hope that more teenagers are getting aware of the fact, that this drug is not as harmless as many try to portray it.

That is awful. my condolences. but dont let all the haters in here get to you. It is SO COOL to smoke the ganja. well people, here is first hand knowledge of its dangers.

Man, now they're trolling each other. It likes finally getting to see the mating ritual of Great White Sharks!

assuming a troll is ugly, and it was mating with another troll, could uglies bump uglies?


Yes, and they'd give birth to more uglies.

I went on a roller coaster as a child.

The dizzying rush of that moment started me down a path of risky behavior and drug-crazed abandon.

/Just say no to roller coasters.



You know what was my personal gateway drug?

FalloutBoy: It's true, my nephew died from overdosing on marijuana. He was invited by the "cool kids" to hang out at some kids house whose liberal parents had left for the weekend.
My brother, always a moral and thoughtful individual, wanted to attend because it was one of those massive house parties that he'd never been to.
Well, as was later recalled by some of his friends at the party, he was pressured into smoking marijuana. He ended up smoking the entire pack of marijuana cigarettes.
Not long after he went into convulsions and started foaming at the mouth. The people at the party held back calling 9/11 for almost 10 minutes. When the paramedics finally arrived they could do nothing to save him. The autopsy revealed he had 3 times the lethal dosage of THC in his blood.
But I'm sure everyone here will deny my story and the fact that my brother died after smoking that illegal narcotic.



This is unpossible;
You cannot receive a 'lethal' dose of Delta9 THC by smoking it.

Enormous doses of Delta 9 THC, All THC and concentrated marihuana extract ingested by mouth were unable to produce death or organ pathology in large mammals but did produce fatalities in smaller rodents due to profound central nervous system depression.

The non-fatal consumption of 3000 mg/kg A THC by the dog and monkey would be comparable to a 154-pound human eating approximately 46 pounds (21 kilograms) of 1%-marihuana or 10 pounds of 5% hashish at one time. In addition, 92 mg/kg THC intravenously produced no fatalities in monkeys. These doses would be comparable to a 154-pound human smoking at one time almost three pounds (1.28 kg) of 1%-marihuana or 250,000 times the usual smoked dose and over a million times the minimal effective dose assuming 50% destruction of the THC by smoking.

Latinwolf

I see you're backtracking since you were the one that first used the word "huddled". Your original post was "I have seen many people huddled in alleys smoking marijuana out of pipes and I approach them and try to get through to them, but their vacant stares are long gone. They are spiritually empty, so dont try and tell me that it isn't dangerous." And for your information, pot smokers that did use pipes used them at home, they didn't carry them around. Had you said crack users then I could believe the using a pipe while outdoors part.

You forget that THC and Crack at the chemical level are virtually identical and have a very similar effect on the brain.

Ender's: FarkinHostile: eidohntno

Marijuana killed my little brother. Let me tell you how.

My little brother was a good boy: he was good in school, polite to everybody and popular everywhere. Everybody liked him.
He didn't drink, and didn't use drugs.

One night, he went to a party with a couple of his friends, and there they showed him marijuana. They asked him, whether he would smoke with them, and since he didn't want to look like a pansy, he agreed.

Since he wasn't used to it, he immediately felt sick: the marijuaa they smoked was too strong for him, and he immediately felt the symptoms of an overdose. His friends called an ambulance, but by the time they arrived, my little brother already died, and there was nothing the doctors could do to save him.


Nice lie. Completely ridiculous, totally unbelievable. You should have tried "Then he did something that got him killed....
". That is far more realistic.


FACT: it is impossible to "overdose" on pot.

You heartless son of a biatch! This guy just pours his heart out in here and you call him a LIAR!~!~!???? WHAT ARE YOU, A POT HEAD!!!??


and MJ is not a 'narcotic'

My understanding was that she was living in a single room with three other individuals. One of them was a male, and the other two, well, the other two were females. God only knows what they were up to in there. And furthermore, Susan, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn that all four of them habitually smoked marijuana cigarettes.

Wally007: meat0918: I never did it because it was too damn expensive (poor kid in the country that bought "the pot is evil lol wargarbbl" in elementary school). I make a good living now in a pretty damn permissive state (Oregon). Pretty sure most of my coworkers spark one up now and again. I still don't smoke, because I have other things I want to spend my money on.

As long as it doesn't affect your job, and you don't come into work stoned, I don't have a problem with it. Same with alcohol, you don't come in to work drunk. I'd probably be able to tell if you were drunk easier than if you were stoned.

It's your body, your life.

Meth on the other hand... I'd rather deal with a coke head than a guy in the middle of a meth run. Oh wait, I have dealt with a guy in the middle of a meth run. I wish I'd had a gun.

//Working at a sleazy motel sucked.

If you cannot tell that I am stoned, WTF do you care if I am?


To be completely honest, I probably wouldn't. If I could tell, or for some reason you felt the need to tell me; I'd probably shake my head and chuckle. I'm not going to go tattle to the boss, or if I am the boss, I'll just ask you try not to smoke pot before work, or at least smoke a little less so it isn't so obvious.

I'd rather have someone that smoked an hour before work and left it at that than someone on prescription painkillers all day, or someone taking cigarette breaks 10 times a day.

A dose of THC becomes lethal when mixed with getting hit by a bus.

I just started a group called "Freedom Crew". We provide intervention services to those with addiction problems. We cover ANY addiction and guarantee our results.

We just stopped a kid from ruining his life -- he planned to attend a Christian Academy in the Midwest. We struck healing tempos on his head with lead pipes until he stopped thinking the bad thoughts. That young man now has a job with the BMV.

Northshore Recovery High School opened its doors three years ago in Beverly, Massachusetts, a 20-minute ride from Gloucester. The school is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the local school districts. The goal: provide high school students a safe, drug-free environment where they can finish their education.

Because all public schools don't have that goal. Mmmmhmmmm.

In other news, local parents are overjoyed that the State is taking money from their failing public school system to fund a special school where drug addicts can succeed and be safe, while their own, non-addict children go to schools with drug dealers.

He wouldn't know. He's a pot head. I keed I keed.

And for all those saying people only use pipes at home, not true. Home or away, I almost always use a pipe and so do most of my friends. If you're smoking good pot that runs around $50 for an eighth oz or 3.5 grams, then rolling joints (average 1 gram) whenever you want to get high can get expensive. It shouldn't take more than a small bowl on a pipe to get high if you buy decent pot.
