do you smoke weed? - Page 5

post #61 of 130
There are also a good number of people who self-medicate anxiety disorders with weed and function much better "high" than they would sober; especially people with social phobia. Most lack the knowledge that prescription meds work better than weed and carry with them less consequences (side effects and legal issues).

FWIW I've never smoked, but entirely plan on being a 40 year old desparate, alienated alcoholic. Heck I'm already there and have 15 years to perfect it!

All the negatives you say for weed may well be true. But alcohol's negatives are at least as bad.

You can argue up and down about weed all day, but liquor is worse, although I prefer it. Any rational society not corrupted by certain pharma and LE interests cannot possibly justify banning weed but allowing liquor and tobacco.

You die healthy.

Yes, smoking weed can be bad for you. Generally, most things that make you feel really good are bad for you. But if you've never tried it, don't bother pretending to be an expert on its "catastrophic affects"--it gets really annoying, and only makes you look like an ass. If you have smoked, or still do, that doesn't make it wonderful and great for everybody all the time. Yes, it's a drug. Yes, it does some damage. Yes, it can be astronomically fun, and No, it's not worth anyone getting upset about so long as you're not actively engaging in criminal activity to get it.

Do it, or don't. Leave people to their vices, and worry about the ten thousand things you could fix in your own lives. Hypocricy is annoying.


weed v. alcohol is almost as bad as evolution v. creationism anyhow.

A more interesting topic is:
Moderate consumption of weed vs. alcohol.
Alcohol is converted into an aldehyde, which in excess is very bad.
In moderation is not so bad and certain additives of alcohol (alcohol soluable benificial extracts from plants or the original fermentation product) are actually good for you.
Weed, in moderation would most likely not offer a health benifit, but rather a psychological benifit. It would also not be "bad" in the sense that your bodies ability to repair the lungs would not fall behind the consumption.
I feel in the moderation the negatives of each are negated and the positives are quite different from each other.
Alcohol is obviously a depressant
Weed is considered psychotropic.
both become different animals in the moderation .

I have heavily abused both.

My college roomate used to sling dope through our dorm room (we used to get some sketchy-ass people knocking on our dorm room at weird hours of the night). Mary Jane paid for his undergraduate degree in PoliSci and ironically, subsequently funded his law degree at Loyola.

Not sure if this reflects positively on my friend's hardwork and dedication despite toking daily, or rather reflects negatively on the relative ease of becoming an attorney.

By the way, Snoop Dogg has been smoking weed every day since he was 9, and he turned out ok, right?

Get it? Maybe you should smoke a joint and relax a bit. Maybe put on doggystyle or something.

(P.S. You spelled endeavors wrong.)

That means that Satan himself has direct access to your brain and your SOUL. Would you want the devil to have direct access to your frikken soul? The side effects are equally devastating. You might find your mouth getting dry. Scary huh? Wait, there's more. You might even get really hungry and even crave junk food. Yeah. Really. I'm not kidding. That's the work of the devil. God forbid you're with a woman while smoking it. You might even get the urge to fornicate! Fornication is a sinful act and the devil makes you do it!

Next thing you know you're listening to Snoop Dogg!

Dude, you win, hands down.
Fuck weed haters !
p.s. I don't smoke or drink

What was this thread about?? My short term memory is shot...

I have to laugh reading posts by people who keep arguing with a guy who is stoned. Then they're surprised when his responses don't make sense.
