    I am a regular user of marijuana. Because of its medical benefits I got taller and became healthier. I always had trouble sleeping until i FOUND MARIJUANA. From thereon I grew physically and mentally.

    At the age of 16 I started,,, and it hasn't affected me at all.
    the study below is very low in sophistication
    Code:
    http://www.foxnews.com/health/2010/11/16/study-early-marijuana-use-increase-brain-damage/?test=faces
    Its just one of the many rigged studies by the pharmaceutical companies to make money. First problem with this study is it only included 33 young marijuana users and 26 non-users. Notice the 26 non users are necessarily not young. It didn't even include senior users who have used the drug for a long period of time. 33 young people performing slightly less on only ONE activity proves NOTHING.

    However what is proven is the safety of the substance, medical benefits, and its cures for diseases. The pharmaceutical companies cant make money off of a plant, so they would rather make money off their synthetic chemical drugs that cause ill side effects, lawsuits, and deaths.

    It should be the freedom of Americans to use an herb made by God, and even referred to in the Bible. It will take a while to figure out that some laws made by governments are of the interest of their personal profit.

    there is so much more info out there. The more you know, the more you realize how great of a plant marijuana is with its industrial, recreational, and medical uses

    PSALM CH-104- 14
    "He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; "

    Ha! That was good entreprenuer! But the actual context of that particular bible verse, if read correctly states that the grass is for the cattle to eat and the herb ("tender shoot" original Hebrew translation) is for man to cultivate to grow crops.

    Or are the cows getting high as well because "He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle?" j/k :D

    Smoking pot definitely impairs your brain function. You obviously don't think as much when you're baked, that's why people forget things etc.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for pot being legal and I smoke it myself... but it's naive to think that it won't affect you in some way.

    Hmm....

    I smoked my first "silver haze NL joint" when I was 13-14 years old, then started with 16 smoking almost every day till summer 2010, where I stopped smoking.

    I'm a little bit cut into 2 pieces now :D

    On the one hand, I feel better without it, I'm not so paranoid anymore, that I was sometimes when I smoked to much, and I can wake up on time for school.

    But on the other hand, you can relax very good being HIGH, and sleep very well ( Which comes in conflict with waking up on time :D ) , and watching stuff becomes just more exciting like movies, or music sound much better.

    But let's be honest.

    Did it had an affect on my brain ? How do I know that ? It's for me impossible to say, if it would be better today, if I didn't smoked these 3 year's straight, or tried it at 13 year's old.

    BUT I think it had one. So, if I had again the choice, I would start at 18 smoking it, or at least 16.

    LOL dude, weed should be legal because we should have the right to put whatever we want into our bodies unless doing so infringes on the liberties of others.

    Crack, herion, etc should be illegal because of the crime associated with the addiction does infringe on the liberties of others.

    Also regarding stoned driving, several studies have shown that people who drive stoned aren't much more likely to get into an accident than somebody who is sober. People that are baked are much more aware of their impairment than somebody who has been drinking or even someone who is talking on their cell phone. Stoned drivers, because they're aware of their impairment, will actually overcompensate by driving much slower and by braking earlier for turns.

    if they where legal but controlled there would be a lot less crime associated with them, addicts wouldn't have to pay dealer prices. No doubt manufacture of the drugs would stimulate the economy. Police would be free to focus on other things. I would argue that addicts would be less of a problem to society not more. :cool3:

    back on topic...
    used to love smoking weed, then one spliff gave me this massive panic attack (aka a whitey)... ever since then i feel like i cant breathe when i smoke it and i feel like i am made of lead, real unpleasant heavy lazy feeling. weird how the feeling suddenly changed. i took it as a sign to stop smoking, still love the smell.

    No offense kid, but you talking to me about getting baked is like me talking to Lebron about my high school basketball career. Nobody's listening.

    First of all the study was done with:

    so that would be 59 participants. That data can only be so accurate.

    Second of all, Fox news is bias against marijuana use so there articles cannot be trusted because they will probably only show studies AGAINST mary j

    Third it's probably true, however, eating junk food is bad at young age too (this is just one example) because it develops bad eating habits, but nobody is saying junk food should be illegal. IMO it's better to have a little brain damage that makes no real big difference for most people than to be overweight and have diabetes.
