I would like to know everyone’s opinion on Marijuana?
Talking about any type of consumption in general. Mainly looking for people against it. I would like to know why your against it (other than its illegal)..but if that’s the only reason why, then did you honestly do your research on why it is illegal….because in MY opinion, I would assume anyone knowing the TRUE facts about this plant and government involvement with it, that they wouldn’t be able to sleep at night. I love talking to people on this subject…I don’t advocate children being involved, or trying to change someone’s stance from UNKNOWN to POTHEAD…because I believe in staying clean because in all sad reality, “it is the law.” But, the people against it MUST state their opinion to me and be very clear on why, so that I can have a healthy debate…..Thank you!
Everyone saying it’s illegal because it is bad for you ( Do some research because, I’m sorry to say, your embarrassing me just having idiots say dumb stuff on my post. Read Juans post….duh!)
And second, only dumb people are dumb and idiotic when high, that’s not the weed my fellow internet goers….I think you just need a new friend!
NOW GO DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE POSTING FALSE FACTS!!! OPINIONS ONLY!!
and just because it’s illegal its bad (lol) our government is always right, pffff…..RESEARCH>>>RESEARCH RESEARCH…….no, it couldnt be anything to do with how we, white people, were mean to black people?
And if it happens to damage your life, friends or family. Don’t blame the weed….its your fault. because if it were the weeds fault then those donuts that americans eat daily would be illegal too. and the cigarrettes people die on daily or even the alcohol you drank the other night while driving down the road…..where your accidently killed the family in the oncoming lane. you have the POWER….thats why children shouldnt be smoking! its used as a tool.
its illegal for a reason, its not good for your health
Legalize it. We can regulate it and tax it.
love it 🙂
Theres nothin bad about marijuana you can smoke all you want and do everything else, now being lazy and smoking thats a bad mix.
if the media is against it, then they are against it. if the media says its okay, then it is okay. bunch of puppets, society dumb as fuck
and the same people against marijuana go and smoke a cigarette or have a beer and think that its any different. yeah go figure, neo con hypocrites to the max you’d think it wasnt possible for a human to be that stupid but its true
and to that guy who said, “cigarettes and beer are bad for your health, why aren’t does products illegal?”
the morons against weed will say because they dont cause schizophrenia, even though weed DOESN”T cause schizophrenia, you know how those antiweed propaganda goes.
“its illegal for a reason, its not good for your health”
uh… so are a lot of other unhealthy things. hamburgers, fries, ding dongs, yodos, cigarettes, vodka, guns
if your so keen on making unhealthy things illegal, why dont you start with your face cause it makes people sick
okay for the last time, weed does not cause schizophrenia. you probably read it off some faux news article. you gotta stop getting your info from biased sources, its making you dumb
just forget it, humans will always be like that. they’ll only listen to parents, governments, police, and mainstream media. fine go be against marijuana, be ignorant, its not like Im in love with the human race or anything
god knew society was and will always gonna be like this. this is exactly how jesus must’ve felt when the world was against him. I bet back then most of the people throwing things at him only did so cause everyone else was doing it.
just like marijuana, everyone is against it because everyone else is. so typical. brain dead and close minded, and I’M accused to being brain dead from smoking weed? that is ludacris
and yes I smoke weed a couple of times every week. and unlike a lot of people who deny being a failure in life, let me say that I AM a failure in life. I am 23, I suck at school, I have a shitty job, and I have mental issues. BUT, here’s the thing… I only started smoking weed 6 months ago. and I’ve been a loser my whole life. weed didnt improve my life, but it didnt make me a loser. I was already a loser before weed, not saying it helped. but these antiweed people will use me as a scapegoat for their agenda.
It’s so dumb to do drugs, illegal, so, so bad for you.
why do you think they call it ‘dope’, son?
I think you’re a POTHEAD! Just admit it! You’ll be a lot happier!
Stupid potsmoking douchebags like to say “we can regulate and tax it” like they know what they’re talking about. It’s most likely that they heard this argument for marijuana on some stupid message board (like Y!A).
Weed is for morons that have no future, and it makes you smell/look like shit.
i hate it but would prefer it too be legal. just like underage drinking. its cool jus cuz it illegal
Google marijuana health
cus then I would be wasting money on something that I would need to hide my whole life, lose friends, it smells bad, its gross, I would be like the one kid down the street
My opinion: I don’t mind if you do it around me but it’s just not my style.
Idk if I would say if I’m against it, it’s just really not for me.
i say legalize it…..why?…….everyone wants to use what is illegal and ppl make profits off of it bcuz it is illegal……if u make it legal…than ppl would have to find something else to make profit on and there wont be as much of it…..what do u think????????
I personally think we should legalize it, because the pros of marijuana are more than the cons. first because marijuana has medical uses, if it was legalized it would make our country a lot richer since it’s one of the most bought “drugs” in our country, and it’s one of the most imported/exported “drugs”. it doesn’t make you stupid, it relaxes you. the stupidA ss stereotype that it makes you a retard is so ignorant because most people i know that smoke are in the honor rolls and stuff like that, you can’t get stupid from it, if you were already stupid to begin with. i could go on but i’m bored with this subject, so i’m gonna go and roll up a joint.
the people saying it’s bad for your health,should STFU, do some research before talking out of your ass. let me ask you a question
cigarettes and beer are bad for your health, why aren’t does products illegal?
God i love how stupid people are saying it’s a “Drug” like dumbF.ucks, or that it makes you dumb. please i am begging you people to look at an unbiased website and/or book on marijuana before making some ignorant comments. please for the love of GOD(if he was real of course)
I hate pot.My boyfriend does it and i cant stand it. the reason i hate it is because it changes who you are and your whole thinking process. I mean come on is ten minutes of feeling like a fricken retard worth it??? I dont think so. Goshh I hate that stupid drug I MEAN COME ON PEOPLE its illegal for a reason. the goverment could make lots of money off it but even the goverment is smart enough to see how stupid it is!
It turns people into complete idiots.
“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”
Why is marijuana not legal?
Its a natural plant that grows in the dirt!
You know what’s NOT natural? 80 year old dudes with hard-ons. That’s not natural. But, we have pills for that!
We’re dedicating all our medical resources into keeping the old guys erect, but we’re putting people in jail for smoking something that grows in the dirt!
slightly against – it is still a personal choice
yes besides that it is illegal it can cause serious health problems if used regularly such as schizophrenia.
it can change peoples personalities and damage reletionships between partners, friends and family
i know people effected by this drug and would never do it myself – but as i said before – personal choice
I love weed. I get high every day. If you’re imagining me as some loser high school drop out or failure in any way then you couldn’t be more wrong. I’m probably more educated then you are. I probably make more money than you also. And I’m definitly happier than you, too. The person who said the word “puppet” was 100% correct. Your opinions seem to be based on the governments opinions. I can’t believe this country is getting away with brainwashing people. It’s to slowly take away all of our rights. And theyre getting away with it because of ignorant people like yourself.
I’m not against it, but here’s a “against it” argument I’ve heard before…(personally I think they ought to legalize it, but changes like that happen slowly, so I’m not holding my breath…)
The legalization of it would mean you’d have to let a whole lot of people out of prison earlier than expected, and it would be the equivalent of saying to them…
“Sorry! We were wrong two years ago when we put you in prison for possession. Try to forget about the horrible experience of being in prison for years due to our mistake. Now you’re free! Go on out back into the world and pretend it never happened…”
Well you see, it has been medically proven that cannibis actually is easier on the lungs than a cig and kills less brain cells than a cold one, but the matter of the fact is, its ILLEGAL!! with this being said, smoking pot shouldnt be done, but then again this plant has had many positive results to people with, stress, eye pain, other types of injuries, and to someone who is just looking for something different, this brings us back to the point, why is it illegal? MANY people are to narrow minded to the negatives of this drug highly over looking the positives, so I would definently say legalizing this substance will be a good thing, and it would help the economy in LEAPS AND BOUNDS!!!
Marijuana prohibition is bullshit, for several reasons
1. Weed doesn’t cause cancer
2. Weed doesn’t turn you into a degenerate
3. Weed doesn’t cause serious psychological disabilitiy or harm
4. Weed doesn’t lead to heroin or harder drugs
5. Weed is not addictive
6. Weed doesn’t alter one’s personality
7. Weed is impossible to overdose on
8. Wee doesn’t kill your brain cells
and so much more, all these common misconceptions about the drug have been proven to be false countless times by both government and independent sanctioned studies. People can downvote, bitch and disagree with me all they want, it doesn’t change the fact that Cannabis Sativa is a begnin plant which is perfectly safe when used responsibly. Just like alcohol.
Don’t believe me? Do a little research and find out for yourself. You can start with list below.
It’s a bad habit(smoking anything)
I grew up in a bad area where drugs crime etc were common.
In my opinion the most addictive drugs are
4. Coke(not crack) some others/ prescription drugs.
The most dangerous/destructive/deadly
3. Coke(not crack) some others/ prescription drugs
Marijuana would be way way down the list
If you noticed I put tobacco over Coke as I know several recovering drug addicts who still can’t quit smoking!
Marijuana while I’m sure isn’t harmless(what is?) Is more of a bad habit like chewing gum or bighting nails. It can make you lazy(not always)
As for it’s legality well Prohibition just doesn’t work.
If Communist China has a drug problem(they do) and can’t stop it even with draconian measures how is a “Free” society going to stop drug use?
The war on drugs is not only a failure it’s been the cause of
Hatred of the police in poor areas.
I believe the “war on drugs” is less about drugs and more of an excuse to militarize police, limit human rights, and destroy fundemental constitutional protections such as
Confiscation without due process.
Warrant less or ridiculously easy to get warrants for searches.
SWAT teams(military on domestic soil)
Loss of due process.(mandatory sentencing?)
I could care less about the drugs it’s the war on drugs that is KILLING people and tearing American society apart.
Everyone saying it’s illegal because it is bad for you ( Do some research because, I’m sorry to say, your embarrassing me just having idiots say dumb stuff on my post…
After 21 years of research on the topic, I can tell you with complete confidence that it clearly, without question has negative effects on blood pressure, the heart, lung capacity, and hormonal imbalances just to name the obvious. It is recorded to contain carcinogens responsible for cancers of many types. It also has been shown to effect brain chemicals resulting in schizophrenia, memory loss, and an inability to coordinate complex thought processes after heavy use. All this from a substance containing over 600 chemicals who’s drug interactions are unknown for the most part. Oh yeah, that’s far better than alcohol.
Even without these facts, its negative implication to families and children at at the very least, are enough to make any reasonable person think twice before making a habit out of it. For 8 years, I personally have witnessed the after effects of this substance on the lives of hundreds of individuals. Not one, stating that it has done then any good. Not one.
It amazes me just how many illicit users come crawling out of the woodwork once they see an opportunity to change a habit frowned upon by most of society into a legal escape from the day to day norm of life. A liberal President comes into office and the push to legalize or decriminalize is on. If taxed, who will pay it? in a world many users feel was provided to the for free from God himself, who will pay a tax? No one. This is a country known for its golden fields of grain. Can anyone imagine what a country would be known for if those fields were replaced with marijuana? Grasp hold of reality and embrace it. Once accepted, what new drug will be next on the list? To think there will not be one, is unrealistic. In an age when so many perescription medication are abused to such an alarming extent, it it nessissary? Does the country really need another escapre from reality? I think we have enough.
I personally am against government influence in our lives, but here I think there is a clear duty to protect. Maybe not necessarily having the government protect people from it, but at least a duty to protect our friends and families from it by education, understanding, and our own common sense.
Any thumbs down are a direct result of lack of education on the subject. Such a shame.
The lack of marijuanna is not the cause of gang violence and drug abuse. People make these choices. Integrity, common sense, and ethical behavior have more to do with our problems than a lack of marijuana.
Ok, I used to smoke weed, 4 days a week for 3 years and some people may call me a hypocrite for that, but I’m against it. I hate Marijuana and what it does to people. I know dozens of people young and old of varying ages and social standing who were great people before they started smoking weed and are basically degenerates now. Always look greasy. sleep late all the time, gotta go to work being a waiter even though they’re 24 and 4 years ago they were one of Houston’s hottest up and coming artists…
I know a lot of people who started with weed and it became their gateway drug, and I know people like me who quit it and left their past behind. I personally no longer associate myself with people who do drugs of any kind. But all in all, it’s still someone’s personal choice, the government can tell you not to do it, but if you really want to you are, as for me, I find it easier to live behind the lines.
I don’t really want a debate, you asked for opinions.
