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.

So apparently drugs with names more complicated than "pot" are dangerous. Good to know.

Pot cures nausea if not used too much.

"Hurr durr Big Pharma is keeping pot illegal because they're a bunch of greedy corporate pigs lol xX420Xx".   
   
Do you really think "Big Pharma" 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 "Big Pharma" 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 "big greedy corporation" 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 "Big Pharma" 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.
