Haha I hear ya.
And you're correct. There have been MANY studies on it. And after all these years, still no one can say they win. Kinda makes you think.... I bet if we studied something as innocuous as caffeine with that kind of dedication, we'd find all sorts of horrifying things...

You have short term memory loss if you drink enough at once, so I'm not surprised or concerned about having it whilst directly under the influence, but I think it's worthwhile to note that this memory loss, if the extra curricular activity is practiced on a frequent enough basis, can remain when the desired effects have worn off. Is that not fair to say, or would you disagree?

I'd say it depends on what's actually causing the memory loss and whether any physical change is happening because of it, rather than it simply being a temporary effect.

If you assume that an effect of memory loss can become permanent, then you must assume that all the other effects caused by the drug can become permanent in the same way.

Certainly, but again, I'm not speaking about long-term, permanent damage of any sort. Just, some people find their memories useful in their daily lives (I for instance, happen to like mine a lot), and it may be worth noting to them that it can affect this on a day-by-day basis.

Oh, definitely.
Fortunately, especially with something as banal and innocuous as pot (until proven otherwise), the user should be capable of trying it and deciding whether they're willing to make whatever sacrifices that come with its use, with a judgment intact enough for it to not always end up a bad decision.

In a way, this is true, but it also highly depends on the person. You can't get addicted to them to the point where you have a physical addiction. However, there is a possibility that you can get mentally addicted to them, if that makes sense. It can get to the point where someone has done so much, that when they are not on the particular drug, they fell empty, therefore providing that urge to do it. The more you give in to this urge, the more serious it will become and it will eventually lead to an addiction. It also depends what your idea of an addiction is, it can be as simple as relying on smoking Marijuana to go to sleep, if it becomes a habit, you can find yourself mentally addicted to it. Although isn't too common.

That can also be the case with anything. A certain food, Facebook, jacking off, exercise... addiction can strike as anything if you have an addictive personality.

I think I get what you mean. Like, you wouldn't get addicted to it the same way you'd get addicted to nicotine, but you're addicted to the high that you get. My friend's girlfriend I'm almost certain is. The one time we were about go to a party, and her "connection" didn't have any weed to give her. We sat in the driveway for 30-40 minutes just waiting on her to find someone that DID have some. She was angry and livid and all kinds of screwed up. It wasn't nearly as bad as the nicotine fit I witnessed my mom's boyfriend have when I was around 6, but still pretty damn intense.

I'd do some things that grow in the ground, but no hard drugs.

Out of curiosity, has anyone done shrooms? What are they like?
