Feb 7, 2012As someone mentioned before, coronal mass ejections are a big worry. Other than that I think that we are very reliant on our technology but its ok, because its a tool. And like many other tools we've developed in history, they've been a source of human progress.Posted in: General Off Topic
If relying on technology means better understanding the world around us, Im all for it. Not to mention we can protect against coronal mass ejections, military satellites are shielded against them. We just need to take the time and start shielding basic electronics against them, or at least the very important ones.

Don't eat up the propaganda your parents and teachers throw at you. Weed is less dangerous than tobacco and alchohol, and have NEVER EVER caused a death.
The problem with it is that it causes your braincells to die,
There is little evidence, however, that long-term cannabis use causes permanent cognitive impairment, nor is there is any clear cause and effect relationship to explain the psychosocial associations.
and can lead to use of harder drugs.
weed is not a gateway drug

Source? I think you're mixing up "addiction rate" with "killabilty rate".
I think hes banking on the fact that no one has ever died from weed overdose in recorded history, while for caffine, not sure, couldn't find a single source.
But it is possible to die from caffeine overdose. But its pretty hard to do and you'd pretty much have to want to die by caffeine OD to die that way.

Yup. But you'll need an insane amount of joints to actually even get close to that, so basically, getting killed by smoking marijuana is pretty damn hard.
Better than that, its impossible. You'd have to smoke 46 pounds in ~10 minutes (assuming your subject weighs 150 pounds) to die from it, and you'd pass out from asphyxiation long before you got near that amount.

marijuana is not addictive the worst thing you can probably do is get lung cancer but other than that its harmless, its good you are looking after a friend but try not to tell him what to do, the worst thing to do is get him or his friends mad. its pretty harmless beer does more damage.
Actually weed doesn't contribute to lung cancer, and the THC can actually help fight cancer. The smoke still isnt good for your lungs though.

It's more due to the fact that the war on drugs is doing more harm than good. It's not stopping people from taking drugs (there is zero evidence that legalising drugs increases the number of users). The laws as they are don't protect people, they just throw people in prison.
When people are addicted to drugs they are hesitant to ask for help because they think they could be arrested if they admit to being on a drug.
If drugs were legal it would make it easier on its users which will be very beneficial to their health. One of the big dangers of drugs like heroin is that it has an inconsistent purity, which can cause you to OD. If it were regulated then you would know how much of it will kill you.
Also there's the reason you already mentioned
Good points, Im still hesitant about the idea but what if it was just decriminalized instead of made legal? That why users could still get help instead of it being legal, (wild speculation inc) it could be sold or put back in coke

Meth addicts harm people now. A study was once conducted that showed that if heroin addicts were given a cheap and safe supply of heroin, they would only use enough to maintain addiction and could live fairly decent lives. This same thesis can apply to most hard drugs.
Interesting, I did not know that. Can you link the study?

With that said, I do support legalising meth
See now this I dont understand. The main argument ive heard is "the government shouldn't control what you put in your body, someone wants to OD themselves to death, let them do it" but meth addicts can potentially harm people other than themselves.

We know that weed isnt Physically addictive, but Psicologically addictive ( like you said, mentally addictive ). However just because it is not psysically it doesnt means he wont have side effects.
If he keeps taking it he will start feeling anxiety and will lead him to use even more weed.
That is why the guy who made the thread should atleast talk with him, the police and teacher discussion is ended and i understand it.
But if he doesnt do something, atleast something small like talking to him he will see him suffer from anxiety and other side-effects for years until he gets help by psycologist ( which wont happen now because as kid i would be scared to tell an adult about drug consumption ).
Its not psychologically addictive, its habit forming.Heres some education for you
It is very hard to kil yourself from weed via OD
Drug prohibition doesn't work and has a history of failure
its less toxic than alcohol
THC and hemp can fight cancer
Hemp is pretty sweet
Caffine can be addictive. Nicotine is highly addictive and kills more people per year than weed does, in fact there hasnt been an OD on weed in recorded history.
While smoking weed can be harmful, mostly from the smoke, it doesn't contribute to lung cancer

Feb 3, 2012A lot of elitism in this thread from people who dont understand weed.Posted in: General Off Topic
I also like how people put all drugs together like taking weed is just as bad as meth because it's still a drug.
Also you seem to be saying it's better to punish your friends than to help them
You can blame DARE for that.
I used to think marijuana was as bad as meth cause thats how they make it seem. The only reason I support its legalization now is because I found a thread on the WoW OT saying support its legalization. I thought "wow, what an idiot, that'd be like legalizing meth!" I read the whole 26 page thread and came out supporting weed.
