The picture makes me say out loud; 'I'd hit it.'

The first paragraph makes me think, 'damn, I'd really hit it'

The rest of the article makes me say 'Holy hell a doo-gooder. I'd hit it, corrupt her, and hit it twice agian.'

A winner article by far. Gold star.

I think people believe marijuana is bad because they're under the mistaken idea that their lives have any value whatsoever.
 
2003-02-17 09:51:54 AM
I read the article and I didn't see marijuana mentioned once. Maybe the poster of this article is a bit too sensitive. All that is mentioned is drugs. Could be any type of illegal drug, including marijuana.

So Fark is letting trolls post articles now. That's nice.

One more thing....

***bong hit***

[I]I too would liek a follow up in a year. If she's still straight edge, then I'll proudly apply at her college and show her a real education once classes wrap for the day. Either that or hook it up with some of her theater friends. Cuz theater major b**ches are teh craziest...hold on...[/I]

***exhale***

And it sounds like you all agree. Someone get a dedicated tail from the Sun on this ASAP.

Veritron, thanks for the comment.

Sounds like I'm the only clean, sober farker here.

Also sounds like the governments could take out 90% of drug users by just cross-referencing with a fark user list. The remaining 10% would be the homeless drug users that don't have access to a computer. :P

Sthayashi - I have had many a opportunity to smoke weed. Many of my friends do. It just has never interested me. ::shrugs::
 
2003-02-17 10:01:04 AM
But you are right - one of my friends is an acting major at Rutgers and she smokes like a fiend. Half the majors are also coke addicts, she says.

Raydr,

Do you have any idea of the numbers of people who use marijuana? We're talking tens of millions of Americans.

The idea that marijuana is more damaging than alochol is an absurd puritanical notion. Alochol has destroyed the lives of millions of Americans. The best thing to do would be to ban it and legalize marijuana.

Sounds like pretty much exactly what I did... now, I don't have any objection to being around the stuff, I just came to the conclusion that it wasn't for me. Frankly, I'm paranoid enough when sober! Now, where did I put that beer?
 
2003-02-17 10:04:54 AM
Sthayashi: that's so true, on everything you said (says the communications major)

SephirothClone: just so you know, weed is not at all physically addictive, though if you are the right personality type, can be psychologically addictive. You aren't going to crave it like nicotine, in other words.

Also, way to hit the filter on you very first ever post on Fark. I'd say "take a hit" though I know that you wouldn't already.

Just because lots of people do it, doesn't necessarily make it good for you.

The idea that marijuana is more damaging than alochol is an absurd puritanical notion.

There hasn't been an awful lot of research into the effects of dope. I find it hard to beleive that inhaling hot smoke into your lungs is actually good for you? Whether it's 'worse' than alcohol is a difficult one to categorise. However, I think almost anything is bad for you in too large doses. And I've seen some people get themselves in some pretty farking shiatty states from long term dope smoking...

Alochol has destroyed the lives of millions of Americans. The best thing to do would be to ban it and legalize marijuana.

Still contend that people ought to be able to put whatever they want into their own bodies. Be that dope, booze, smack or coke... It's their business. Bit of personal responsibility.
 
2003-02-17 10:18:10 AM
When I see so many people advocating the use of drugs (such as first two posts), I can see whatever she does isn't going to get through to most people. She's just trying a new tactic. Whether it works or not remains to be seen of course...
 
2003-02-17 10:20:16 AM
Oh - and the problem with drugs isn't really that consenting adults do it - it's because they get peddled to kids by asshats that couldn't care less what the effects are as long as they make money...

True, inhaling smoke directly into your lungs can never be a good thing, but some researchers have found that marijuana has certain counter-carcinogens that cancel out a few of the effects of tar and the like in the weed- in other words, it's not "good" for your lungs, but smoking weed is less harmful than cigarettes. Also, if one uses a vaporizer, one inhales only the vaporous THC (which has little to no effects on the lungs), completely side-stepping the carcinogens. I agree that marijuana's effect on the body needs to be studied more, and without the rather asinine biases the government has put into such research.

What she needs is a Terrance McKenna "Heroic dose" of mushrooms. Kills several birds with one stone.

1. Meets God
2. Knocks her off her high horse
3. Would show her that God gave man all the seed bearing herbs and plants to use.

Oh, yeah... I'd hit it till she stuttered and sang the Star Trek theme song. (the original, you know - ah AHH ah ah ah ah ahhhhh)

Crotchrocket Slim

Really need to get myself a 'BigAl <> Big Al' signature. Few people have made that mistake.

It wasn't so much the physical effects I was thinking of, although as you say, dope certainly can't physically be much worse for you than cigarrettes!

I just think that there is an opinion that dope is 'completely harmless'. I don't think that is the case. There are definitely mental effects, which can be fairly bad for some people. A friend of mine smoked very heavily and was diagnosed as a violent paranoid schizophrenic, still sectioned 6 years later. I certainly don't think the dope made him that way, but I'm pretty sure it didn't help his mental state... I've also noticed that a lot of the people I know who suffer from mild Paranoia/depression also smoke quite a lot. I have a theory that it can amplify underlying mental states in people.

I think some research into the mental side effects needs to be carried out. But that is more so that people can know what they are doing to themselves, because it isn't going to stop many people smoking.

However, I'm convinced that people ought to be able to do whatever they like to themselves. Be that dope, booze, PCP, smack or whatever. Just got to be responsible for their own actions.

Don't forget the experiment the Government endorses!

They took a monkey and strapped a gas mask on it and pumped something like a YEAR'S (a lot) worth of weed in it for FIVE minutes.

Needless to say, the monkey suffered slight brian damage because of the weed.

Of course, the fact that it didn't breath oxygen for 5 minutes was kinda overlooked.

Oh, and don't forget the study in Austrailia that proved how drivers who are high on Marijuania drive more safely and cautiously than SOBER drivers.

I can attest to that one. I drive slower than a grandma on Xanex when I'm high.

I think we should all write to her Catholic school to inform them that their star spokesperson is contradicting the word of God. For shame!

Could it be possible that God made a mistake? After all, he put marijuana, opium, mushrooms etc. on the planet. Wonder why? HE PUT IT HERE TO USE YOU FARKIN' HYPOCRITICAL ASSWIPES!

Jesus-farkin'-Christ-on-a-farkin'-pogostick, wake up. Just because YOU can't handle it doesn't give you the right to condem others from trying to get closer to God or have a good time

Y'know, all the problems created by weed(supports terrorists, gets you busted) would be solved by simply decriminalizing it in the first place. When trying to explain why weed is bad, government officials can only come up with the previously mentioned circular reasoning so they have to make up bullsh*t.

Weed is no more dangerous than alcohol. Infact instead of making someone depressed and causing them to beat up their wife, weed helps people to relax and calm down. It sooths the nerves.

The reason weed was made illegal in the first place was because of the Cold War. America was so Hell-bent on portraying themselves as morally superior to "those f*cking communists" that the government threw out the seperation of church and state and imbraced christianity. They immediately made like good little christians and banned everything "harmful" to a person's body(except for tobacco 'cause it was a "traditional drug" and a major source of guvmint income). Now the Cold War is finished and those godless christians(not an oxymoron) still have a stranglehold on the government. And things are just getting worse: instead of decriminalizing weed, now they're starting to criminalize tobacco(not that there's anything wrong with that but it serves as an indication as to how bad things are getting).

I can't wait until the time comes when a president will have to decide if continuing to appear morally and religiously superior to the rest of the world is worth bankrupting the entire economy to fight a futile war on drugs.

People like her and the ones in her organization, are the ones spreading the negative opinions and lies about the millions of harmless smokers around the world. I remember something in the bible about not lying...hmmm, guess she`s right then, though I haven`t had any epileptic reactions lately

so much so in fact I'm not going to quote the part of the article that directly mentions marijuana. I'm going to make you actually read the article instead.

Fiver - I think he's right, I just did a search on the article and didn't see the word marijuana come up. I still maintain that she's not helping these kids.

Speaking out against wine coolers and caffine pills is just.... farked up. I don't know. I consume both on an irregular basis, and they both have their uses. One gets me laid, the other keeps me from getting fired.

Kliq - Then congratulations on your self control. I'd actually recommend giving it a shot while you're a college student. If you get busted, the punishment is a slap on the wrist compared to after college, and it might even give you some insight into the 60s.

Crotchrocket Jim - An ex-girlfriend told me that Communications was the football major. At least your grades were based on something remotely rational though. I almost felt bad for the Drama students because you could fail a class for no reason.
 
2003-02-17 02:01:28 PM
I like pot smoke alot and i'd be the last person to speak out against it, but for how non addictive it is I seem to smoke alot of it when I should be studying.

*bong hit*

what? Pot is not addicting. I only smoke when I can get away with it. Study? I don't remember having studying to do. I can control it, can stop whenever I run out. I wonder whats on HBO...

Never done weed (or any other drug) myself.. even so, I still get severly pissed at some of the anti-weed propoganda going around. I support legalization, mostly because I rather dislike irrational laws/double standards (I.e: Something more addictive than heroine (which is nicotine) being legal, and something like Marijuana being illegal). I'd never do it myself, but.. to each their own.

I am soooo farked once I reach the adult world, aren't I? (In trying to apply logic and reasoning to most situations, I mean.)...
 
2003-02-17 02:30:09 PM
Let me share some funny stories of chicks like these. I had a few at the high school I went to.

One was the christian do gooder who would never drink and was saving herself for sex until she was married...3 years later after going off to college, she was partying so hard, she was failing all her classes, and had had 2 abortions, neither of which she knew who the father was.

This other chick was a Catholic rich girl who whould never give it up to anyone, but liked to go to parties but would never drink and who was saving herself also for sex with her husband. 8 months after graduating, a friend of mnine sent me some pictures of her getting gangbanged in a dormroom with a big ass smile on her drunken face.

I could name a few more, but I think you get my picture.
HA!

felgraf

Yeah, in the real world you don't have to do that. Just say what people want to hear.

sometimes you "I don't smoke pot but I want it legal" people don't make sense to me. Kinda like white people marching for civil rights for african americans. I mean, I'm very glad to have you on our side, but I guess it can't be as personal for you because you wouldn't be sent to jail for years when we potentially could. I view the fight as a real struggle, whereas someone without the incentive of jail time might not feel so willing to fight tooth and nail for it. Of course it's better to have yout hen not, but you understand what I'm saying? But whatever.

*Nods* I understand. It's not that I don't want to smoke it because it's illegal, I don't really give a crap about that. I just think that I would get soooo farked up, and I'm really wierd and relaxed enough as it is...
And who knows? I may try it later down the road.. I'm only 17. Lotsa time for change. I just have never really felt the urge or need for it.
 
2003-02-17 03:37:53 PM
Methinks Felgraf will be a big pothead during some time during his college career. I used to be the same way man, and well, you can guess what happened to me.

Sthayashi: I'm pretty sure Comm Studies is a completely BS major at most larger schools, but in mine it's a bit more serious (though I'm still pretty much a slacker about it). Not too many football players at my school, but a bunch of potheads that just didn't want to get into Economics, PoliSci, or one of the natural sciences, pretty much.

And Art Major Chicks are still fun to nail.
