While weed is indeed awesome, it drastically increases risk of developing mental illness in adolescents. Up until, approx., age 24 the brain continues to develop, especially complex social and planning pathways. Messing with canabinoid receptors is not a safe thing to do while the brain is putting together things like long term planning areas, emotional control, social mirroring centers, etc (late age brain development). Marijuana use during this time leads to 2, 3, 4 times the risk, depending on use. It's as irresponsible as getting a child filthy drunk.

This concludes my derailing of this thread into a long, boring pro-con drug argument.

True story. Forty years ago every one from hippies, high schoolers and college students were lighting up and enjoying a smoke talking a better world. Today we have the tea party, there has to be a huge over lap and now we know why.

I don't advocate drug use for anyone, that said, you're full of sh*t. Do a little research and all the mental illness studies are bunk.

It is an herb that is relatively safe and should be legal for use by adults. It has many proven medicinal qualities and should be readily available to folks who would benefit from it's use.

Lastly great troll, I give you 8/10.

As an anit-con, anti-lib, anti-government, anarchist; I agree with you completely. While I believe cannabis has no major damaging effects on an adult, using anything that alters the brain during developmental stages is not going to yield positive results. I took recreational drugs maybe once or twice a month from 14 - 19 and I can honestly say my attitde, my grades, and my performance went through the roof after I stopped smoking weed, dropping acid and taking speed. I stayed sober for 15 years. In my 30's I got diagnosed with a cervical stenosis, I didn't even know I had a cervix. After going through two years of physical therapy and some pretty hardcore drugs, including Oxycodone, I gave up on what the doctors could do and started smoking pot. I can honestly say my attitude, my grades (getting a second degree,) and my performance went through the roof after I quit walking around in constant pulsating pain.

The guy in this article is clearly farked up in other ways.

I am as pro-weed as they come, but giving a kid weed is not the best idea. It's up there with letting your kid get drunk. Forcing a kid to smoke weed at gun point is "Just kill him now, he will never be any use" kind of stupid.

Are you really qualified to make this assessment?

I've decided that there are so many farked up opinions on what is "okay," that I just decided that I didn't turn out okay. It saves me hours of having to prove the contrary to idiots.

Heavy

MJ use has been associated with mild short term memory loss. The deficit is trivial and is fully and quickly reversed when use of pot is stopped. Pot does not cause any brain damage or developmental defects. All that is just a myth; theres no medical evidence to support it. Having said that, pot, like alcohol, is an adult pleasure and not for children.

And should be taxed, regulated and quality controlled like beer and cigarettes. As a country, we could make(and save) a ton of money with that method.

You want pot to become dangerous? Regulate it to Philip Morris like cigarettes. Pot is barely addictive on it's surface, I get sad and moody after about 2 days but I'm better in 5. Give it to P.M. and it will have been sprayed with their version of spice to make cheap ass badly grown weak weed better.

Decriminalize it, let people grow it on their own, keep the sale and taxation illegal. The last thing I want is to be required to go buy Marlboro Greens and get 18 kinds of cancer from their additives.

Free weed and keep it that way commerce in unecessary.

I know it has never been show to cause developmental issues, and any issues related to cell damage are smoke related. None of that is the reason 7 year old kids should not smoke pot though. A 7 year old has little knowledge of self control, and zero knowlege of drugs unless DARE starts younger than I thought. No one should think a kid can handle being high, even at 16 you don't really understand the concequences of taking drugs. Add to that the already major problem with drug education and you have a 7 year old who see someone's older brother with some blow and decides sure why not.

Smoking pot won't kill the kid or his brain, but it doesn't need to to be be a bad idea.

i can still smoke pot, but in the back of my head it always means a trip to the hospital cause when my parents notice that i'm ACTING differently they think it's schizophrenia.

I'm as pro weed as you get, as I have a neurological illness in remission with marijuana use (and one other medication) under CA 215 and am a medical user.

That said, the previous posts regarding use in children and teens is correct; the evidence currently indicates it can be harmful. Many drugs have harmful potential and so it's use must be weighed with benefit. So, a child undergoing chemo...that might justify use depending on circumstance, etc. I wouldn't advocate recreational use under any circumstances for >24 while there's a potential for such serious harm. However those who are adults can make their own choices.

I'd also smoke recreationally if I wasn't sick...just to be clear. As it is, it's use keeps me from being very sick. I was and am VERY happy to not have to take vicodin almost daily. :) Remission is teh awesome.

Your mental illness and your issues with your parents are all personal issues. They have absolutely nothing to do with the general population as a whole. For you, a hit of pot might equal a schizo episode and a trip to the mental ward. For me, it means supreme relaxation after a hard day of work, or that little extra bit of "something" to make gaming less boring.

You make such sweeping generalized statements, like your above "CANNABIS WILL SEND YOU TO THE HOSPITAL!!1" posts. Bullshiat. No, John, cannabis does not send you to the hospital, nor does it to 99.99% of users. YOUR PARENTS send you to the hospital, when they start to notice the symptoms of YOUR aggravated mental issues on pot.

Congrats on the remission.

For my proclamation, I wish society were even-tempered enough to allow self-determination on issues such as drugs, sex and religion. The cautioned use of which should reasonably be granted to everyone without artificial consequences by law or statute, even based on age or benefit to everyone else.
