oh_please: She cited recently published research showing that people who used marijuana heavily before age 18 had impaired mental abilities even after they quit using the drug. Those who used cannabis heavily in their teens and into their adulthood showed a significant drop in IQ between the ages of 13 and 38, according to the studies. 
 
So, she's saying if you're going to wake and bake, then keep smoking all day, there may be problems? To the RomeroCopter!


To be fair, if your day consists of watching Spongebob Squarepants reruns and eating cheetos, your IQ will drop regardless of how much weed you smoke.

Not really. When was the last time someone overdosed on pot? People die from alcohol poisoning all the time, but not once in all of recorded human history has anyone died from marijuana, it's simply not toxic enough.

Rockstone: If someone asked me this question I'd answer that yes, it is quite dangerous, however, states ought to legalize it anyway.

/ smoking is dangerous and it's legal. What makes pot different, again?


Tobacco is very difficult to grow so there is little chance of people being able to bypass taxes and grow it for themselves. Weed grows like a, well, weed. Also, weed (hemp specifically) was threatening William Randolph Hearst's textile monopoly  industry so he pushed for it becoming illegal, using his papers to help convince people it was dangerous, also non-whites were more dangerous because of it. 
Weed became illegal in the first place because of a greedy asshole who wanted less competition. It's remained illegal because it was an easy way to help keep minorities in their place after jim-crow ended; Nixon's campaign to preserve "law and order" certainly didn't help any also.

Amos Quito: plewis: Pot is horrendously harmful to you ... if you are caught by the police with it.

Really, the only harm from pot is that it is a terrific way to waste gobs of time. Since the only thing you really have in life is time, that's pretty significant.


Hmmm...

So pot is like an illegal version of Fark?


My dealer called, he said he had the regular stuff, but that if I spend an extra $5 monthly I could get the really really good stuff no one else can get.

beer4breakfast: CapeFearCadaver: have multiple cop friends who smoke; they also have a set testing date, but... well, yeah

What do they do when they encounter marijuana offenses on the job? Because it would be tough for me, if I was a cop, to rectify the hypocrisy of having to enforce marijuana laws while using it at the same time.


I figure it goes something like this "Give me that pot! I'm letting you off with a warning, so I won't have to report this, and thus don't have to buy weed this week,"

Well, Stan, the truth is marijuana probably isn't gonna make you kill people, and it most likely isn't gonna fund terrorism, but... Well son, pot makes you feel fine with being bored. It's when you're bored that you should be learning some new skill or discovering some new science or being creative. If you smoke pot you may grow up to find out that you aren't good at anything.

Serious question in need of a serious and reliable answer: Is there a small minority of people who are at some risk of a psychotic episode when on marijuana or is that just FUD from the abstinence-only crowd?


It can exacerbate a number of pre-existing mental health issues like bipolar disorder. That's not propaganda.

scottydoesntknow: Teens upset that parents/the media/the government have been lying to them.
 
Be honest with your kid. It's not a very dangerous drug, but it's still a drug. Seriously, this talk should mimic the alcohol talk almost exactly.
 
My parents told me they understand they can't control what I do and don't do outside of the house, but they also warned me that any consequences that came from my actions I would be dealing with myself. If I'm old enough to decide to drink a beer while underage, I'm old enough to deal with those consequences if caught.


That's what I am doing with my kids. I treat them with respect and honesty. They respond by listening and performing their chores and staying out of trouble. They know they have the freedom to make decisions as long as they understand, and accept, the consequences.

I think it works because I have a great relationship with my kids. The only draw back is that I don't think they want to leave; my 19 year old keeps threatening to stay forever because she loves me so much. Phah!
