tweek46420: Begoggle: Pointy Tail of Satan: There is lots of "tar" in weed. Writer is ill-informed.

If you believe on the libtards on Fark, weed has no negative side effects at all!

give me a few negative side effects then?


From my experience. Insomnia, Paranoia, reduction in effective depth perception while driving (dude I thought I was going like 90 but I was going 30!", overeating, motivational problems (though this may be because I was a young twenty something), burning lungs, hacking cough, phlegm, red eyes, dry mouth.

I quit because of the insomnia and paranoia. I just couldn't sleep after getting high, even if I baked in the morning. For the paranoia, I just didn't want to be out in public. I couldn't smoke socially, even with people I knew. Did I say that weird? Was that weird how I said it? Do they think I'm weird? That person knows. That cop knows. I can feel my bones, I think I might be dying. etc. etc. etc. The paranoia didn't develop well into the late stages of my smoking career. Never got that when I started.

Pot has negative side effects. I only drink now. No bad side effects there!

they need to update Link

They don't even have an entry for NK - and they still haven't noticed that Colorado legalized it (I didn't look up Oregon).

Be glad you don't live in SK. $30-50 a gram and you better not get caught with it
From that link:

The PoPos have all the right to search you anytime they want and have your urine tested whenever they want. They even make a deal with you. They ask you to tell 5 pot heads you know or 1 dealer, or you get locked up in the jail or get banished if you are lucky enough.(US Citizens tend to be banished more than other countries' citizens. Remember, they can have your urine tested anytime they want and if your urine is positive for marijuana or any kinds of drug, you are doomed.

Somaticasual: So, one upside versus about 1000 downsides?tweek46420: give me a few negative side effects then?

COPD, emphysema, a risk of low testosterone, and a slightly higher risk for testicular cancer.
I'm a full legalization supporter, but even aspirin has downsides.. We just have to weight them against alchohol, tobacco, driving, etc - all rights that come with responsibilities and possible harms.


I'll say it again .... the research into negative physical health and mental health issues have had mixed results. No, I don't accept that there are zero negative side effects. But, we don't have enough information to come to many real conclusions. I believe that we have such limited data because researching cannabis, in any form, has been kinda sorta taboo for the last few decades. We need more funding for more research. Now that it has been accepted medically in so many places as well as the recent legalization for recreational use, I hope more funding will become become available. Mostly from those who expect to profit from the new laws and attitudes. But also from the feds and NGOs who oppose legalization.

We can argue back and forth about the legalization and the comparisons with other vices in vague terms for now. Let's wait until the science is in to claim we know what the side effects are.

Malcolm_Sex: I've found that anyone who is as against weed as some of the people in this thread are tend to just be contrarian assholes who's opinion I care little for. Bottom line is its less harmful than so many things readily available already, let's just allow the adults to make adult decisions.


They don't like it when you point out that all alcohol consumers are wife beating, child abusing, drunk drivers, who would constantly riot in the streets if strict control over their dangerous, addictive drug of choice wasn't in place.

I'll take some tokers over disgusting, violent, alcohol addicts.

You don't have to SMOKE weed. People do that because it's more efficient, and pot is expensive because it's contraband. So cross lung problems off the last. If it were legal, I'd just as soon eat it.

Granted, that was a hell of an omission on my part. And vaporizer technologies would reduce harm even from inhalation. But that's still leaving a lot of downsides unmentioned. If we're honest, it does cause some adverse reactions in some folks, and lung issues aside we're still left with hormonal and possible cancer issues and mood fluctuation in heavy users. It's just clearly orders less than tobacco and alchohol - and I'm still at a loss for finding a fatality that's unambiguously linked to marijuana.


Fark and humanity in general needs a lot more people with your rationality and civility.

david_gaithersburg: NK is "conservative"? Wut? When did the epitome of progressive utopian society make a right hand turn?


When it became insanely obsessed with preserving their "pure and clean Korean blood". Read BR Myers book The Cleanest Race. They're not some leftist regime; they're a group of insane totalitarian racists.

Think how much power the US could wield if it were to fly over North Korea and drop little packages of: rolling papers, a zippo lighter, twinkies, doritos, a can of coke, and a picture of Uncle Sam smoking a blunt!

So what you're telling me, is the most oppressive country in the world has a more progressive attitude toward marijuana than we do.

We should probably, like, do something about that.

FTA : In North Korea, you don't smoke just to get high and laugh at your own hand

They're too sophisticated for that.

Also FTA : NK NEWS receives regular reports from visitors returning from North Korea, who tell us of marijuana plants growing freely along the roadsides

Someone should make up a clever name for that sort of weed.
