That was me saying what I actually did believe. I do understand what you're saying but I personally think we should be banning more things not less. Was interesting to speak to you though.

appreciate that, but please take this argument much more seriously. There aren't many examples over the course of history where banning more things as opposed to less ended up being a good thing, and i'm glad you said that because even though i do enjoy weed that is not why i become offended at the continuation of its criminalization, it is the fact that the government takes away our ability to decide for ourselves.

Sorry for another long response, but yeah, agree to disagree i guess

I didn't mean weed should be legalised for adults just that I wouldn't try to convince them otherwise. Ironically my class preferred when they were out of their face because when they didn't have their daily fix they were incessantly moody (as a result of spending hours clean). Admittedly it also occurred in the smoker population of our school I don't think that should be ignored

It occurs to me that neither of us is likely to give any ground here. You clearly believe that it's an individuals choice to make their own way while I believe in a more regulated society. Shall we agree to disagree?

Fellow student actually but I'm rather flattered.

They didn't turn into "dumbass delinquents" until they got into weed. And more importantly I know what they were doing on their days off.

Ever see someone stoned try to answer a question in class? Trust me you can tell.

Like I said, I won't preach to an adult about weed because that's their call regardless of my opinion but at least agree that it should stay out of schools. At the very least it stinks. At the very worst it screws up your life (statistics do show that most junkies, at least in the UK, began with cannabis.

In the UK it would be a criminal offence for the NHS to post false or deliberately misleading information.

Yes but which causes the other? I'd say making the choice to get high during your high school classes makes you a dumbass delinquent, not the thing you use to get high.Think back to when you were that age, you probably knew your priorities and did what you needed to do before you did what you wanted to do. Kids aren't clueless to what they choose to do, most adults just perceive it that way and look for something to blame. Using this as a reason for keeping pot illegal is like saying a man can't have a steak because a baby can't chew it. And to use real life reason against this look at any other country which has legalized marijuana; in almost all countries where marijuana is legal, there is less reported teen use than where it is not legal. This may stem from it being harder to obtain legally or just from it being less glorified but if this is what you are worried about, what does it matter why, based on other countries as an example, legalizing marijuana would most likely reduce teen use anyway.

Try the NHS website. I apologise but I only saw the printouts of that particular study.

I did not intend to imply that you didn't understand it yourself as you have clearly shown to know enough to produce a solid argument. I was simply stating that many people who take up weed are unaware of the potential health risks associated. As a result I won't take offence at the parents remark. My bias (and I'll admit to having one) comes from the twenty something school mates I had who were doing well enough in school until one of them showed up with a bag of weed. Most of them are now skipping school and effectively all of them are failing.

I don't think it's a coincidence.

My quarrel isn't with weed specifically. If an adult wants to get high on weekends because he has nothing better to do then on his head be it but it bugs me to see kids throwing away their future because the took up a drug habit when they didn't know better.

#277 - brianhenry (04/27/2012) [-]
If you had any first-hand experience with weed you would know it debilitates nothing socially or academically at all. Nobody ever knows when i am high when i am high and this is not because people tell me this to avoid awkwardness. I have tested it with close family and friends who have been around this thing and wouldn't care if i did by asking them on a later date if they knew. When you see somebody acting overly high, it is the same reason why people will act drunk when unknowingly drinking non-alcoholic beverages. The effects of weed are EXTREMELY slight compared to what people make of it. The reason why your "students" started skipping school and failing is because they are dumbass delinquents, not because pot became available. I went to a high school with 2500 kids, maybe 10% of them smoked weed semi-regularly or regularly, most were actually great students and one ended up being the valedictorian, and a handful of them were terrible students. Either one of these results did not stem from smoking, it was due to their homelife and/or will to succeed. It so makes sense that you are a teacher (if you are) because you seem to fall under that group of people who search for things to blame for unsuccessfulness of kids when there is never one specific thing that causes it. It is not marijuana's fault that these kids did not succeed, it is the kids' fault when they decided to get high instead of go to school or do homework; you need accept the fact that there is not a specific reason to every kid's failure, some are just unwilling to do well in school. You as a teacher should know more than anybody that there will always be that group of kids who just stops caring about school, no matter what the circumstance.

And by the way, most of the information, if not all of it, on cannabis coming from this website has been proven wrong many times afold and is dangerously out of date. It even states that it causes physical withdrawell, which is flat out wrong.
