Well I have not ran into anyone so stoned they were druling on themselves. But I can say that when I was younger and would partake that I had extreme clarity and mental focus on whatever it was I was doing. People who are not familiar with majiuana often get a bad picture of what it can do. Its been drilled into our heads since 5th grade, depending on you age, that marijuana will make you lazy slow boring do nothing type person. But in reality weed dosnt make you do anything. I always like to think of it as a mood and personality amplifier. If you are an unmotivated lazy person than thast what you will be when you smoke. If you are energetic motivated person you will see another side of what you like. You will see it from a diffrent perspective good or bad. As far as it making you smarter,no weed dosnt make you DO ANYTHING. The person does these things stoned or not.

I had a friend in high school that when he came to class sober he would fall asleep druft off in lala land and never finish anything for class. But when he would come to class after taking a lil "break" in his car it was like a whole difffrent person. He paid attention ask intelegent questions and scored better on test and participated in class. From what I have witnessed over the years of smoking is that I gives you focus when you want to focus. But you have to want to. Like I stated before weed dosnt make you do anything.

Umm no weed does not make you smarter. And it don't make you stupider ether. It just makes you smell bad. And weed makes you more energetic cuz your high and highs make you feel happier. And it don't make you pay more attention, it just makes you more awake. Get y'alls facts straight!

Iam not sure if the last couple post were directed to me or the O.P. highs make you feel happy. Not always true. I have been sad after smokikng your emotion can go anywhere just like if you were sober. Just a side note marijuana is niether an uper or a downer but rather a very low grade halucingen, in the tryptimine group I believe. Along with mushrooms and dmt. But that is off the top of my head don't hold me to it. The high a person feels is unique to that individual. Even if two people smoke the same joint that will have diffrent outcomes. It has a lot to do with your state of mind.

"marijuana intoxication can cause distorted perceptions, impaired coordination, difficulty with thinking and problem solving, and problems with learning and memory. Research has shown that, in chronic users, marijuana's adverse impact on learning and memory can last for days or weeks after the acute effects of the drug wear off.2 As a result, someone who smokes marijuana every day may be functioning at a suboptimal intellectual level all the time." just a side note definition of suboptimal- of less than the highest standard or quality. Ergo makes someone slower or "stupider" as my vocabulary challenged friend said.

So does your study state the dosage used. Also who conducted the study. Sounds like the same garbage that has been spat out since th 50s. Iam in no way tryung to say that marijuana is som kind of super drug that makes you smarte faster better. As I tried to relate in the story about my school budy, it didn't make him smarter it helped him focus on what needed to be done. You can copy and paste all the info you want. I have given you real world first hand accounts on the subject. I won't lie if abused and used in high amounts it will hiner your ability to do just about anything. But the same thing can be said about alcohol cigaretts and cheeseburgers. When used responably it canhave a positive effect on a person. Looking at a problem or idea from a diffrent perspectives never a bad thing. Maybe you should quit ready old one sided studies and try some for yourself

One last post before my phone dies. Since we are on the topic of perspective how about you go and educate yourself about the other sides view. There are a few fantastic documentaries on netflix from medicinal to industrial hemp. But if you want to just wallow in the same old mis information that you have been told since grade school coming from the same people who have been at war with marijuana for a very long time, fighting a losing battle, go ahead. But that wouldn't be very SMART of you. would it?

You know what maybe you right... Maybe I should just say to hell with it and smoke pot, completely ignoring all of the things I was taught and raised to believe. and just say you know what, I'm not gonna believe all of the scientific research that is out there! I'm gonna listen to this man/woman's Personal experiences saying that smoking marijuana is good. You're right that sounds like the smart thing to do. Thank you for all of your wise advice.

I'm sure marijuana affects everyone differently. For me, it calms me down and helps me sleep. I'm going to school and have a job, there is NOTHING wrong with smoking. Personally, I think Alcohol is A LOT MORE dangerous.. I don't understand why smoking marijuana is such a BIG ISSUE when there are obviously much more harder drugs out there.

well obviously you are not listening to ALL of the scientific research that is out there. you are only listening to the information that coincides with what you have already been taught. and furthermore I was asking you to do some real research and see what the other side has to say. here is a starter.

If you think marijuana is that bad what are your thoughts on alcohol? here is also a list of government sponsored studies. you might as well look at them we paid for them

5/10 Good job trolling all the gullible ones.

If you actually believe what you're typing, though, I pity you.
