People will try to convince you that you're missing out on something by not doing drugs. They're missing out on something called life and they want to drag other people down so they won't be alone in their sad pitiful reality. What a bunch of losers.

Yes it's bad. Marijuana has no healing properties. It only fixes the problems that it creates.

I recommend you do more research. First of all, marijuana is our only known 'remedy' for Alzheimer's disease. While it's no cure, it does slow down the effect. Have you ever known someone while they were dying from Alzheimer's? If not, I hope you never live through this travesty, as it is by far one of the most traumatic ways for somebody to die. Marijuana has also been known to help those with epilepsy, arthritis, and MS, and some patients prefer the natural medication as opposed to that created in a laboratory.

Along with remedial effects on these diseases, marijuana has profound effects on mental disorders. Nearly 20% of our population reports being effected by depression and/or anxiety. These illnesses, while mental, manifest themselves physically in the person in various forms (such as eating disorders, aggressiveness, lack of motivation, sleep disorders, migraines, physical harm to ones self, suicide, etc.) While again, marijuana does not necessarily 'cure' its patient, it certainly helps to alleviate the added stress that comes with the illness. Marijuana has more medical uses then pain killers, as they too don't cure the patient, just help with pain. However, pain killers have chemically addictive properties, are hard on the body, and have no added benefits along with them. Marijuana has multiple benefits outside of just being a pain killer. I forgot to mention that it has been used for over 40 years as one of the treatments for glaucoma, so yes it does have 'healing properties.'

Now, why should marijuana be illegal? It is a natural medication, there are countless studies and research showing that marijuana is indeed useful in the medical field. It has no overdose morticians to date, and is non-addictive (chemically, mentally anything can become addicting). Legalization would save us tons of money on the massive flop that is the war on drugs,(1.4 trillion dollars spent towards the program since it began, addiction rates stayed stagnant til around 2005, and have since steadily climbed). Legalization also creates pure revenue, jobs, and tax dollars. Opens up a new industry for trade and even more importantly, hemp will again be legal to grow (don't even get me started on the benefits of hemp). It would provide a new recreation drug that IS a safer alternative to alcohol.(this shouldn't even be a debate, look up the statistics for how many people alcohol is known to kill each year, then marijuana. Think about what you find)

So I ask again, why should it be illegal? What problems does it create? As far as I can tell, the government is creating the problem by telling people what they can and can't do to their own bodies. History tells us that marijuana was made illegal for several reasons, and none of which were because of the general health of the people using, nor the problems it creates. IT was about money. Legalize it, distribute it to adults like alcohol, prescribe it like medicine. Marijuana rocks, I'm not even a pot smoker and I feel this way. Don't be so naive and make blanket statements when you are so obviously ignorant to what you are talking about.

Did you learn that from another idiot? It did you actually research it with an open mind and all the facts led you to believe that marihuana is bad?

http://www.adaa.org/about-adaa/press-room/fac...

http://www.cdc.gov/features/dsdepression/

I said anxiety and/or depression. The two links show 18% of people suffer from anxiety, where as 10% go through depression. So roughly 1/4th of our population has a diagnosable mental disorder.

Okay how about this, instead of researching the benefits of marijuana, research the harmful effects(short and long term). I think you're missing the point. Do you enjoy seeing people throwing their lives away just to make you feel like you're not the only one?

Most mental disorders are just a state of mind caused by a traumatizing event. It can be cured with some therapy and will power.

Arguing over marijuana is stupid. It is labeled a drug yes but it really isn't anymore harmful (actually much less so) than cigarettes. Also alcohol kills tons of people - pot has never killed not one single person. Recently it has been PROVEN (look it up you idiots) that pot can stop certain types of cancers. In other types of cancers it forces the dying cells into retreat and makes the cells normal and healthy again.

Long term use of marijuana CAN lead to depression. That doesn't mean for everyone that it does. The only other harmful side affect is how you smoke it. If you're traditionally smoking a joint - the warm/hot plant matter you inhale can be harmful but there are other options - bongs, vaporizers, eating it, pills, ect.

Also pot is harmful to kids whose bodies' are still developing.

Other than that - that's it. It should be legalized, taxed, and regulated just like cigarettes and alcohol.

Also if you think that a person that smokes pot is missing out on life - you are sad delusional person. Especially if you think it's worse than cigarettes and alcohol. Personally all the anti-pot propaganda is ridiculous and lumping it into the catergory of drugs is just plain stupid.

You want to talk about drugs - find a meth head, pill head, coke head, crack head, ect. Those are your REAL drugs. Stop knocking marijuana.

You should reread the whole thing, but thanks for displaying your arrogance.

I have, obviously more extensively than you have, or you would have refuted more than "mental disorders can be cured with will power and therapy." The short term? Some minor memory loss, lack of motivation, a sometimes 'zombie-esque'(not brain eating, just mindless) personality, and over eating. Long term... jail? Obesity? Broke? I can think of a lot of legal activities with the same long term detriments. Your argument sucks, but of course, I get on topix and expect a conversation with an educated person. At least we're both naive.

You can go f*ck yourself.:) Simple as that - no trying to convince and idiot with their mind set on something. By all means continue condemning pot and continue your path of righteousness. No one gives a f*ck. However it is dumb*sses like you - that are the reason pot isn't yet legal. However your dumb*ss side is losing. It's legal medicinally in several states including WASHINGTON D.C. and is being pushed to be voted on in Kentucky for 2013. Also some states have legalized it for recreational use under a certain weight. People don't throw their lives away for pot btw. So you need to re-read your "facts" and check yourself because you come off sounding like a f*cking idiot.
