do you realize how dumb of a false that is? people can get crushed by anything. If it were teddy bears would teddy bears be outlawed?

Regardless of an inability to become physically addicted or overdose, being high is still being high. It doesn't matter what medicinal purposes it has, people still abuse it. You can't do anything to your full potential drunk, stoned or even buzzed. Using numbers and so called statistics to glorify getting high isn't the way to go if you want marijuana to become legal and used to its potential.

>weed supposedly 'cures cancer'
>Bob Marley died from cancer

your argument is invalid

Weed helps TREAT cancer, by reducing the size of tumors, not cure it. Your understanding of science terminology is lacking.

"Weed never killed anyone"
Really?
No one EVER died because of it?
No one was ever killed over it?
No one was ever killed by a driver under the influence of it?
No one was killed by a stoner making a mistake because they were high?
None of it was ever laced with something harmful?
None of it was ever grown in bad soil?

I'm just gonna point out that literally everything has an LD50. So about that "you can't overdose on it" thing... yeah, you can. I mean, 						****					, you can overdose on water.   
Granted, it's ridiculously high (pun entirely intended), but it exists so stop saying it doesn't exist.

Maybe stop being 12 and stop acting like weed is the best thing to ever be discovered.

Marijuana may not kill, but it does prevent some mental development. I'm personally fine with it being legal, but I think the legal age should be around 21, like alcohol.

Or make it fully legal and let people do what they want and deal with their own decisions. You know, instead of the gov't trying to be everyone's mom.

but if you buy imported weed from mexican drug cartels, which are responsible for many murders, therefore funding them, does that count as an indirect marijuana related death?

**** this bull **** ... I'm so sick of this argument...Alcohol is bad for you and weed is bad for you... if anything alcohol should be illegal because it ***** with your state of mind. People ******* wreck things while high but weed didn't kill them, oh no, it was the wreck. I ******* hate the people that only want it to be legal so they can get stoned and not give a **** about anything. I'm all for the legalization of hemp... that would be great but the only reason most people want weed legalized is to get high and they make every excuse in the damn world to say it's ok instead of "we know it's bad, we just want to get high". yes, it is harmful to your body, yes it ***** with your mind, yes you can get lung cancer from it, no, it's still no better than alcohol. ****

TL;DR Man up and stop making false excuses about weed, just admit it's bad for you and that you don't care, you just want to get high

I support the legalization of marijuana, but I am against its usage. I don't believe people should force other people to share their morals.

with that said, I think this is a ****** statistic. this factors in way more deaths than pure overdose. for instance, people also die while smoking weed and driving at the same time regardless if its their fault. but that isn't factored in. only on the alcohol part.

while im ranting, people say marijuana isn't addictive. my ass. videogames have consumed the past 4 years of my life, but I can say im not addicted, because videogames don't have addictive chemicals. the exuse is about as valid as saying its impossible to overdose on videogames. because no one has ever died from gaming marathons before.


tl;dr this statistic is bais

The stats in the top panel are just stupid. The alcohol death total isn't just deaths from alcohol poison.
It also counts drunk driving, and accidents related to being drunk.
Also mentioned that alcohol is a cause of crime, but don't mention anything about crime involving marijuana.

You're telling me nobody in the history of the world ever got in an accident driving high, or nobody got shot cuz they never paid their dealer?

Sure the rates might be much lower, but claiming it never happens ever is dumb.

as for the rest of the post, I chuckled. Nice one

I can't say that smoking pot has ever harmed me, physically or mentally. But I do suffer from anxiety and paranoia when I smoke it. Of course I didn't fully realize this til I ingested it and got a really strong dosage, prior to that my "high" would only last a few hours because I just smoked it in small amounts. Not quite enough for me to start flipping out. But I guess you could say that when I get high I start to panic. I feel my heart level rise. I can't keep a steady train of thought, and for some reason this sets me off because I just don't feel like myself. I start to worry about a heart attack/stroke, or even being high forever. Sounds silly but it's just what happens. I ingested it for the first time not too long ago, and I was flipping out and having anxiety attacks. So yeah... pot doesn't have that relaxing, 'whoa....dude' effect other people experience on myself. Now even the smell makes me gag.

Of course this is obvious, smoking is just not for me. But what I'm saying is, if it's made legal, somebody of any age could try it for the first time thinking it's the cool new hip thing, and end up having an episode like me. Speaking from experience, I wouldn't wish that on anybody. I'm just happy I know now that it's not something I should probably be doing, what other people do is up to them of course.

The problem for me with stoners is that they're mostly boring assholes and when they aren't getting high, they're talking about getting high.

Because they're boring, and it's the only way they know to have fun.

Also, it's ******* annoying when kids in high-school talk about this stuff and don't know **** about it, you CAN get addicted to marijuana.
Really, you can get addicted to anything, so this argument is completely retarded, there is nothing that you can not get literally addicted

And if these guys really think it's just a hobby, why do they plan their lives around it?
It's on all their clothes, have it on their socks, they have it as their cover photos, etc...

Also, Marijuana IS a gateway drug, denying such is ignorance. There are plenty of mellow stoners out there, but everyone at my high school and all of my old friends that have ended up on harder drugs, acid, LSD, and even meth, etc... So yeah, it is a gateway for impressionable teens.

tl;dr would rather be in a classroom with people who don't smoke instead of losers who's only way to have fun is to smoke.

all these comments about car crashes (they happen, i suppose, but lets be honest weed isnt the drug you take to do stupid/dangerous **** ) and noone mentions lung/throat cancer. Because inhaling the fumes of burning organic matter is usually good for your respiratory system.

do whatever you want to do in life, just dont lie to yourself about the consequences.
ps. to the idiot that will tell me its harmless, no its not google it.
ps2 to the idiot that googled it and found some ******** on some ******** site: that was ******** . look for a medical / scientific magazine/ pubmed site
