EDIT: I'm going to make a second one of these, which will have sources to back up each claim and also dispute the things that people are falsely presenting as facts in the comments section. It is nice to see people are having a discussion, however, instead of just screaming abuse at each other.

Seriously, aside from Morbid-Chanel I think weed is the main thing you ******* get butt-hurt about.
I see you all arguing with second-hand information that you got off a friend or you think you remember your dad saying once.

This isn't pro-weed propaganda, I don't give a **** if you smoke or not. These are just facts.

Enjoy.

Dryhead for Senator.

Is it nationally illegal? Or can each state make it's own rules for pot?
User avatar #555 - thesoulless (12/26/2011) [-]
2 side notes:

1. No, ********* does not cause schizophrenia, however it does increase the risk of developing schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, etc.

2. Weed itself does not cause cancer, but actually smoking weed does increase the risk of developing cancer, because you would be inhaling smoke and possibly ash, which are both carcinogens, obviously this applies to smoking joints and stuff like that, you`d be just fine with a vaporizer or whatever.
#592 to #555 - dethmaul (12/27/2011) [-]
Righto, anything that you burn and inhale is dangerous, no matter what it's made out of.

And I'd imagine that It'd be like acid, where it just exposes what's already there, not necessarily increases the risk of developing it.
User avatar #550 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
More and more studies are proving the truth about weed but I am afraid it will not change the status of what most people deem this is a dangerous drug. These articles come out and many are proven sources but people still write them off as ******** . I am tired of living in a world where I don't have the legal option to hit a bong, yet can go buy alcohol, drink tll I am almost dead and get a pat on the shoulder from my buddy saying "Dude, your so wasted".
#546 - klondikemonster (12/26/2011) [-]
I knew everything that you just listed off, but this doesn't really change the fact that I don't really ever plan on doing pot.
User avatar #533 - keefybeefy (12/26/2011) [-]
Don't get me wrong, I smoke weed EVERY SINGLE DAY so I'm not at all against weed. But it definitely is physically addictive, just not a lot. There is a part of your brain called the Endo-Cannaboid System. When your body gets over stressed, this system releases cannaboids through out your system to give you that relaxed sensation, so you're not stressed. So when you smoke weed about every day, that part of your brain stops making cannaboids, because you're already getting it through smoking weed. So when you stop smoking cold turkey, your body starts craving that cannaboid and your body is not producing it. So you get over stressed, and though the withdrawl symptoms are not necessarily as intense, they are still present.
User avatar #545 to #533 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
I can honestly say I have never had withdrawals from weed when stopped smoking. Our brain constantly produces Canabinoids, just because we are smoking weed and overloading the system doesn't mean it stops producing. It is purely a mental addiction. You believe you are addicted, in realty you just don't want to quit.
User avatar #553 to #545 - keefybeefy (12/26/2011) [-]
Oh I don't wanna quit at all lol. But it can leave you over stressed. And yes, after so much ********* use over a short amount of time, your body stops producing the cannaboids, because it was already getting it from the weed. I'm not saying weed is bad or very addictive, but it is addictive.
User avatar #556 to #553 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
Well, in my case it is NOT addictive. Maybe it just comes down to people and their bodies. Some bodies are weaker then others perhaps.
User avatar #579 to #556 - Himynameisjacob (12/26/2011) [-]
He actually makes a very valid point. When a drug is supplying you with chemicals your body usually makes on its own, your body stops making enough of the chemical - because it doesn't need to. Then you suddenly lose those chemicals when you withdraw, and you feel pretty ****** for awhile. It's not nearly as bad with ********* as it is with a large number of other things, and I strongly believe in legalization for a plethora of reasons, but this argument can very easily be used by anyone anti-pot. Because, it's true. Just not the best argument for illegalization. Mostly seeing as nicotine, alcohol, and caffeine are bounds more addictive due to actual chemical qualities, and yet I've been drinking caffeine in large quantities since I was a ******* .

I don't know why. It is very common in weed discussions for either side of the argument to make **** up. Is the number here correct? I am not sure. Is the statement correct? Yes it is.

There is a 10-30% chance that you will develop an addiction to weed. Neither of those numbers are zero, the threshold for "not addictive".
User avatar #542 to #517 - ABjerre (12/26/2011) [-]
So many people must be in denial of their weed-habits... If its not 0% likelyhood of causing of addiction, it cant be "not addictive".
User avatar #515 - doneb (12/26/2011) [-]
only reason its illegal because of politics and sadly it won't be legal everywhere for at least 20 to 30 years its all about votes sadly and they want have the support of people against weed why... do you ask well lot of them are wealthy citizens and they can easily influence the government and when we speak out our opinion we are thought as just stupid kids especially if your under 18 hope this helped
User avatar #557 to #515 - thesoulless (12/26/2011) [-]
**** votes it`s all about the money.
User avatar #558 to #557 - doneb (12/26/2011) [-]
For politicians votes are money
User avatar #544 to #515 - ABjerre (12/26/2011) [-]
Well, by that logic the only reason tax fraud, theft and ****** is illegal is because politicians made up laws abot it. HOW DARE THEY DO THAT?!?

Looking as more and more aspects of our lives are being regulated, i'm sorry to say it, but legalization isn't very likely to happen ever.
#514 - anonymous (12/26/2011) [-]
-Not addictive? Yes, it is. It is not physically addictive in the way Nicotine or Meth is, but it is psychologically addictive. Have you stoner Richard Simmonss ever tried to just stop? I bet you can't.

-Yes, and it can also cause many other mental disorders. Now why is this?
Well, hemoglobin has a real hard time telling the difference between CO2 and Oxygen. When you inhale smoke, there is a substantial increase in the CO2 levels of your blood, which goes right to your brain's blood supply. Like any other cell in your body, Nuerons need oxygen. Instead you feed them CO2. You are killing braincells at an alarming rate smoking pot, or smoking in any sense.

-You just claimed that pot has no physiological effects on the body besides the THC high. So now you claim it can effect the body medically? 61% less likely to get cancer? With all of that cell killing and non-natural THC, I'm reasoned to believe it increases the risk of cancer, particularly cancer of the lungs and bronchial tubes. Were you ******* high when you uploaded this?

******* Jesus I hate the Stoner-Humor channel. Stop cancering our frontpage.



#559 to #514 - thesoulless (12/26/2011) [-]
Weed increases the risk of developing a psychological disorder, but it is not a definite cause.

Weed only increases the risk of developing cancer if you smoke it, because then you would be inhaling the smoke and ash.
Alternatively, assuming that you could live for an indefinite amount of time, you would have a 100% chance of developing cancer sometime during your life, very likely close to the end.
User avatar #539 to #514 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
I smoked weed everyday for a year. I stopped when ever I felt like it multiple times. Haven't smoked since last new years but that was because of alcohol poisoning. It just kind of turned me off from any type of drug. Although I did kick back with some dxm about 3 months ago. Id like to smoke some more weed but id rather save my cash to buy me some bread and Ramen.

As for smoking it...just don't there are several ways to get THC into your system without inhaling ash.

THC does in fact reduce CERTAIN type of cancerous growths in the body. As for the number I can not vouch for. It does not kill brain cells.


#551 to #539 - anonymous (12/26/2011) [-]
Derpass, It's not the THC that kills braincells, is the lack of oxygen and increase of CO2.    
   
Try inhaling CO2 from a pressurized tank rather than O2. You'd die wouldn't you? Now pretend you are just one big individual cell.   
   
Stoners and medical science just don't mix.

User avatar #554 to #551 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
Oh, I get it now. You are referring to the experiment(in the 70's I think) to which they determined ********* kills braincells. You do know how they came to the conclusion right? I assume not. What they did was strapped monkeys to gas masks and pumped them full of pure ********* smoke for I think upwards of 12 hours a day for either a month to three months. Obviously they would lack oxygen, CO2 would increase and obviously brain cells would be killed.

But if you still refuse to believe that, then Ill say again. Eat it, brew it, vape it and braincells will not be killed according to your statement.
#583 to #554 - anonymous (12/26/2011) [-]
No, I'm referring to the science of the human body.
User avatar #585 to #583 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
Sorry to tell you this but you are not holding in CO2 for long enough amounts of time to be deprived of oxygen. I do agree that with lack of oxygen and rising co2 levels is what kills braincells, but smoking ********* will not cause this. It could if your an idiot who does not know how to smoke, but a real smoker knows you only have to hold it in for a second or two before releasing the smoke and breathing air again.

Alcohol has been an accepted and integrated part of our culture for the last 5000 years. Not likely that it would be banned all of a sudden.

Had it been invented today, it would very likely be illegal though...
#496 to #492 - Blitz (12/26/2011) [-]
Considering 1-2 drinks a day is beneficial to your health, no. I'll agree it's healthier than binge drinking, but that's all you're going to get.
User avatar #524 to #496 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
This really depends on the type of alcohol...A beer a day keeps the doctor away but a glass of whiskey well I don't know a rhyme here but anyways a glass or two of whiskey a day will overwork your liver. That being said it slowly works at it and would not be noticeable over short time periods. Not like binging but still. I put my money on weed as long as it is not smoked. If it is vaped, eaten or brewed, it is completely beneficial and fun.
#534 to #524 - Blitz (12/26/2011) [-]
Don't get me wrong, I'm pro legalization of weed. I'm just sick of seeing all this **** about how healthy it is.

In response, I'm relatively sure the 1-2 drink rule applies to liquor. However, it becomes 1-2 ounces as opposed to 1-2 glasses. With regards to the method of weed intake... I'd still be skeptical with THC interacting directly with the brain for two main reasons. First off, neurotoxins in general are just nasty. Second, while the vast majority of the body has methods to combat toxins, or remove them from the system (cilia in the esophagus/lungs, antioxidants), the brain is pretty much defenseless. If any chemical gets in there, it stays there indefinitely. Will it react down the road? Maybe, maybe not.
User avatar #543 to #534 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
Our brain produces THC naturally. Not to mention THC is harmless. It is the other 400 something chemicals in weed that COULD cause any harmful side effects. They are usually released only when smoked.
#547 to #543 - Blitz (12/26/2011) [-]
Well, we produce AEA at any rate. THC isn't naturally occurring in the body. Anyways, this is just arguing over semantics now.
User avatar #552 to #547 - eight (12/26/2011) [-]
Canabinoids is what I meant. THC is one though. I think bottom line though is it is not a deadly drug if anything it provides a nice relaxed experience with some medicinal benefits, no drunken rage effects and no chance of overdose. It is certainly less harmful than cigs and it is ridiculous that it is illegal.
