hmmmm...I do remember my name and remember everything I do when I am high or not high. I have a full set of healthy teeth also. I am not skinny so that is out, getting high gives u the munchies so u eat. I don't have any sores on my body from getting high. the addiction from tobacco is way worse than pot u can ask my hubby about that, and I have known some alcoholics in my life and have died from the stuff. Are you sure you don't have meth and marijuana confused as they both start with M. that is what meth does to you, think you need to get your facts straight and if you don't know what THC is then you know nothing about pot, as I have said...I can go with or with out it so am sure I am not addicted to it. If you would meet me in person and talk with me you would never know I smoke pot. I still have my old brain cells in tact.

yes I do remember your last post and it was about reefer madness. can't believe everything you see at the movies. believe this movie was a goverment movie to make people stop smoking just like the one they put on about alcohol. the facts you put on here need to be rechecked cuz they are not true, might be true for some other drugs but not pot. maybe if you would smoke a bowl then you wouldn't be so uptight anymore. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT PLEASE. Oh yeah....I did graduate from high school and have a college degree.

What constitutes you as a "pot head?"

I smoke it everyday, maintain a decent paying job and take care of my family.

Smoking pot helps to relax me after a hard days work and has always seemed to stimulate my mind as well.

Not to mention helps my stomach problems.

I have never snorted a pill or ever done a "hard drug" in my life.

I however enjoy the herb very much.

I'm sorry society has to lable everyone who smokes
some sort of druggie no good.

I also smoke cigarettes as well.

Trying to quit them.

By the way, many cancer patients benefit from pot because it can reduce stomach upset, increase muscle relaxation, and produces hunger (aka "the munchies")all caused by the treatment to cure the disease.Pot makes you feel better all the way around. Besides, pot is a natural substance. The way God intended.

apparently you don't know what your talking about. You don't even know what THC is. I don't think you need to comment on somthing you know nothing about. Pot does not rot your teeth out stupid, and as for as the weight goes it would cause you to gain weight before it would lose it. And how would pot cause you to get sores on you retard. I think you have that confused with meth. And if you take good care of yourself that shouldn't be a issue anyways. And anything you do can have a addiction, Whether it's a food addiction or a drug addiction. Maybe next time you want to throw your opinion out there on this subject you would like to do your homework on it first.

Myth: Marijuana Is More Potent Today Than In The Past. Adults who used marijuana in the 1960s and 1970s fail to realize that when today's youth use marijuana they are using a much more dangerous drug.
Fact: When today's youth use marijuana, they are using the same drug used by youth in the 1960s and 1970s. A small number of low-THC samples seized by the Drug Enforcement Administration are used to calculate a dramatic increase in potency. However, these samples were not representative of the marijuana generally available to users during this era. Potency data from the early 1980s to the present are more reliable, and they show no increase in the average THC content of marijuana. Even if marijuana potency were to increase, it would not necessarily make the drug more dangerous. Marijuana that varies quite substantially in potency produces similar psychoactive effects.

Myth: Marijuana Offenses Are Not Severely Punished. Few marijuana law violators are arrested and hardly anyone goes to prison. This lenient treatment is responsible for marijuana continued availability and use.

Fact: Marijuana arrests in the United States doubled between 1991 and 1995. In 1995, more than one-half-million people were arrested for marijuana offenses. Eighty-six percent of them were arrested for marijuana possession. Tens of thousands of people are now in prison or marijuana offenses. An even greater number are punished with probation, fines, and civil sanctions, including having their property seized, their driver's license revoked, and their employment terminated. Despite these civil and criminal sanctions, marijuana continues to be readily available and widely used.

Myth: Marijuana is More Damaging to the Lungs Than Tobacco. Marijuana smokers are at a high risk of developing lung cancer, bronchitis, and emphysema.

Fact: Moderate smoking of marijuana appears to pose minimal danger to the lungs. Like tobacco smoke, marijuana smoke contains a number of irritants and carcinogens. But marijuana users typically smoke much less often than tobacco smokers, and over time, inhale much less smoke. As a result, the risk of serious lung damage should be lower in marijuana smokers. There have been no reports of lung cancer related solely to marijuana, and in a large study presented to the American Thoracic Society in 2006, even heavy users of smoked marijuana were found not to have any increased risk of lung cancer. Unlike heavy tobacco smokers, heavy marijuana smokers exhibit no obstruction of the lung's small airway. That indicates that people will not develop emphysema from smoking marijuana.

thanks for sharing this info and I really hope that gateway has read this and has put a stop to his making stuff up. I know everyone has a different effect from smoking and different reasons for smoking, but it is all about the same feeling. it helps me relax and if my stomach is upset that is the first thing I get out, I am not one for taking pills even the over the counter ones. I can enjoy my life naturally.

maybe...but when someone asks me if I have children and I say yes and tell a little about them and their age they look at me funny and tell me I am not old enough to have children of that age. I probably, for my age, could work circles around you as I am full of energy. You can try to come up with all the stuff you want to but...as I said before....if you knew me or would meet me you would not know I smoke pot. some of my good friends don't even know it and the reason I don't tell them is...I don't want to be "LABLED" as a pot smoker because most all people including yourself thinks it is all bad. If you only knew the truth.
