Possible side-effects of Marijuana use: Memory Loss, Anxiety, Hunger pangs, Risk of heart palpitations and attacks, Apathy, etc.

Now before some over-zealous stoner jumps in to refute all these and peddle the wonder-drug, I support legalisation of weed.

This list, and yes these are all technically possible, like those found on precribed drugs are for the most part never going to happen or are going to be incredibly mild compared to how they sound. They have to include the warning for legal reasons, and they include every side-effect that could happen - whether it be a fluke incident, an unidentified problem you have already, or reactions with other substances you're taking. They also have to include things that test-subjects experienced, even if it was a single subject and it was most likely nothing to do with the drug being tested.

Medicine is safe. Pills are safe if taken as advised. It doesn't make you look informed or clever to rag on the thing that has increased our life expectancy so much.

heres just a quick google search results of the side effects of Xanax
depressed mood, thoughts of suicide or hurting yourself, unusual risk-taking behavior, decreased inhibitions, no fear of danger;
confusion, hyperactivity, agitation, hostility, hallucinations;
feeling like you might pass out;
urinating less than usual or not at all;
chest pain, pounding heartbeats or fluttering in your chest;
uncontrolled muscle movements, tremor, seizure (convulsions); or
jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

side effects of marijuana < side effects of pills
i can deal with the apathy, thanks

yes i understand that pills are engineered to make you healthy
yes i understand that there is next to no medicinal value of smoking marijuana, other than pain relief. (mostly for chemo patients, to relieve side effects of treatment)
im just saying the RISK of harm is much much much much much lower while smoking marijuana compared to taking pills, to which thousands of deaths a year are attributed.

in 2008 there were 14,800 deaths from painkillers
in 2008 exactly no one died from marijuana overdose

"Medicine is safe. Pills are safe if taken as advised. It doesn't make you look informed or clever to rag on the thing that has increased our life expectancy so much."

there is such a thing as chemical dependency, everyday people can get physically addicted to morphine and other prescription drugs, and if they stop they go through withdraws, which is like having a hangover x10 all day every day for months

ganja never has or ever will give anyone these kinds of symptoms

Those side effects come with over use, anything when over used is dangerous. Also the Anxiety comes from the illegality of marijuana and the fear they will get caught. As for hunger pangs marijuana does more good for hunger than it does bad, since marijuana stops people feeling sick cancer patients going through chemo (and many other people with certain illnesses) feel constantly sick but with marijuana they then have appetite and are able to eat normally.

So apparently drugs with names more complicated than &quot;pot&quot; are dangerous. Good to know.

&quot;Hurr durr Big Pharma is keeping pot illegal because they're a bunch of greedy corporate pigs lol xX420Xx&quot;.   
   
Do you really think &quot;Big Pharma&quot; would try to suppress such a popular drug like marijuana? What possible reason could they have? First of all, the industries are barely related--marijuana is more of a recreational indulgence than a medical tool. It has some small medical uses, but really it's about as relevant to medicine as Red Bull. And if &quot;Big Pharma&quot; was only concerned about making a profit, they would promote legalization. Marijuana is already a multi-billion dollar industry, and when it's legalized it's going to become another &quot;big greedy corporation&quot; just like the big pharmaceutical companies. Heck, if pot became legal I would totally invest in it and become rich in a heartbeat.   
   
The reason pot is illegal is the same reason alcohol was illegal at one point--simple social conservatism. The difference is that weed became much more stigmatized than alcohol, often being associated with harder drugs like cocaine and heroine, and people became afraid of it. That's why most politicians don't even touch the issue. It has become the status quo.   
   
Also, of course doctors are going to prescribe drugs from big companies over marijuana, because 1) pot is, in fact, illegal and stigmatized, and 2) the drugs &quot;Big Pharma&quot; makes are often much more effective than pot and can target very specific ailments. They go through stringent testing and are held to very high standards. Pot can moderately relieve pain and lower blood pressure, but that's about it.   
   
Now, before you ask, I do support legalization. I just think some of these conspiracy theories used by stoners to support legalization are just retarded.

What you say sounds intelligent but is wrong, "Big Pharma" wouldn't be able to make profit on marijuana because of how easy it is to be grown, people would just grow their own stuff. Also its not just pharmaceutical companies who would lose money with the legalization of marijuana but paper companies would lose out also because hemp can be made into paper (and a lot of other products).

You really don't know much about this topic but you decided to put your point across nevertheless, if you think the only 2 benefits of marijuana are moderate relief of pain and lower blood pressure then you are incredibly uninformed, my mother suffers from severe arthritis but if she smokes marijuana she no longer feels the pain for a long time, its in no way a moderate relief. Marijuana is also known to combat certain cancers, it can treat glaucoma, it helps with migraines, it can combat seizures, it helps with OCD and tourettes, combats MS, actually PREVENTS Alzheimer's, mildens ADD and last but not least helms with PMS.

TL;DR Just like a politician this guy talks a good talk but what he is saying is uninformed and just plain stupid.

I mean, the whole idea that "Big Pharma" would be hurt by the marijuana industry should be null and void because marijuana is already a multi-billion dollar industry, and yet "Big Pharma" is doing fine.

"'Big Pharma' wouldn't be able to make profit on marijuana because of how easy it is to be grown." Ease of production makes things more profitable, not less. Economics 101. The marijuana industry is already hugely profitable industry (ever seen a picture of a druglord's mansion? They're not exactly struggling for cash.)

Yes, marijuana has some medical benefits. But it's not like the duct tape of medicine. There are many, MANY things it can't do, or can't do well enough. That's why "Big Pharma" would not be that hurt by marijuana legalization. Marijuana isn't their ONLY competitor. There are still MANY drugs that "Big Pharma" produces that cover diseases that marijuana can't.

I'll say it again--I DO support legalization, but I don't think marijuana is the sort of "wonder drug" that other pro-potters want you to believe.

The list i said about the things marijuana can treat are just a small sample, no drug in the world apart from marijuana can do that range of things. Also drug lords are rich because they are the only ones growing and distributing in their area. You make it so everyone can grow marijuana and there will be NO druglords. I live in an area of England which is ripe with marijuana and because of it the profit to be made from it isn't that high, you can buy an ounce from the growers for £170 but then are only able to sell it on for £210 and it takes about 2-3days to sell an ounce because everybody is doing it. Marijuana doesn't do everything other drugs do but it does a wide enough range of stuff covering some of the biggest money makers like the pain relief, painkillers are undoubtedly one of the biggest revenues for pharmaceuticals but painkillers are actually pretty dangerous, give people the option to smoke some weed or take some painkillers and they will opt for the weed.

Hemp products do more than mild pain relief and lower blood pressure the reason it is prescribed to cancer patients is it keeps them from throwing up. Also hemp oil has been shown to reduce the sizes of some cancers.
