A 1997 UCLA School of Medicine study (Volume 155 of the American Journal of Respiratory & Critical Care Medicine) conducted on 243 marijuana smokers over an 8-year period reported the following: "Findings from the long-term study of heavy, habitual marijuana smokers argue against the concept that continuing heavy use of marijuana is a significant risk factor for the development of chronic lung disease." "Neither the continuing nor the intermittent marijuana smokers exhibited any significantly different rates of decline in lung function as compared with those individuals who never smoked marijuana." The study concluded: "No differences were noted between even quite heavy marijuana smoking and nonsmoking of marijuana."

Marijuana does not cause serious health problems like those caused by tobacco or alcohol (e.g., strong addiction, cancer, heart problems, birth defects, emphysema, liver damage, etc.). Death from a marijuana overdose is impossible. In all of world history, there has never been a single human death attributed to a health problem caused by marijuana.

The most common problem attributed to marijuana is frequent overuse, which can induce lethargic behavior, but does not cause serious health problems. Marijuana can cause short-term memory loss, but only while under the influence. Marijuana does not impair long-term memory. Marijuana does not lead to harder drugs. Marijuana does not cause brain damage, genetic damage, or damage the immune system.

i brought up the paraphanalia laws because not everyone smokes unfiltered joints on a daily basis. Most people that smoke it, has a bong handy. Ive never seen anyone smoke tobacco out of a water pipe, or heard of anybody that do. Ive tried it just for the hell of it and it made me gag. When i smoke a cigarrette, my lungs hurt, when i smoke a joint, they dont and really thats all the proof i need.

people are trying hard to prove that marijuana is harmful and they're still debating it which means that it's harmfulness is dubious grounds unlike hard drugs who's harmfulness is undebated...

Well i`m not going to argue with scientists & doctors who have studied it , but they have been wrong before. Most of the articles I have read in the past couple of years have said that cannabis is more harmful than at first thought.
And it does have a higher tar content , I don`t believe for one minute thats not doing any damage.

If people where to control the intake of marijuana, it wouldn't be that bad. Then across the whole world it would be legal, lucky for me, it already is. Though I don't smoke...

I second that one.
"The Devil? Everything's the Devil Mama. Well I'll tell you one thing. I like school, and I like football because they make me feel good.
And I like Becky, and she likes me back, and she showed me her boobies and I like them too."


I'm addicted to....exploration of society, music, cigarettes, alchohol, political rebellion, good times, anti-racism, anti-police struggles , anti-sexism, ****ing with the minds of a$$holes at my school (including jocks and goths),

Only 95% because I'm not addicted to salt like he says he is.

Then she explains how she came to that position & you carry on flaming her
And then she tells you exactly what damage the drugs did to her & you decide to joke about it.

Wow thats really big of you
