What doctor can tell me what smoking pot does to me? There's no doubt that I smoke (daily) less pot than the tobacco contained in one cigarrette. I use a can to smoke, and I cover the end with paper folded 4 times to stop the brown stain from reaching my teeth (that I change each time I get hi. A can lasts me a week, then I throw it in the garbage and start a new one). I am a responsible adult, I hold a part time job; I'm married (for the 2d time - over 6 years) and we both have adult children. My favorite time to get hi is first thing in the morning and just before I go to sleep at night. My husband knows I get hi (I told him before we married) but I NEVER get hi in front of him. I promised I would never make him uncomfortable about my "habit". But I would truly like to know what long term effects smoking pot has for me.

I love to smoke pot, but am unemployed, and can't afford to buy any. The previous writer should realize that when one is stoned, it's spelled 'high' not 'hi'. Poor spelling/grammar makes a bad name for us stoners.

I am well (enough) educated - spelling it "hi" is not an issue. Are you unemployed BECAUSE you smoke pot?

Well I'm employed and smoke tons of weed all the time. I make almost $50,000 a year so ha! And I do beleive the docters and researchers who did this study are right about the marijuana not a being a cancer causer.

50,000 a year is average.....uhh ok so ha what, your average, oh OK that's funny. Provide some medical "evidence" to support your arguement.
I have smoked pot for 35 years, the last 8 as a medical marijuana patient. I advocate medicinal marijuana for many people, especially like me who suffer chronic pain from an in-operable back condition.
Who in the hell can say that inhaling the smoke of anything that is ignitited is anyhing better than unhealthy is RETARDED. Why say somehting so stupid without any medical support. Who are these Dr's and where is their study? Marijuana does not cause cancer, the SMOKE from marijuana frying the scilia on the lining of your lungs leaves little scars averytime you smoke. After 35 years I feel the affects and wish I could get the same medicinal affect from eating weed. Secondly each time you hold your breath with a hit in your lungs, you are depriving the rest of your body of oxygen, so your heart starts to beat like crazy to try and correct the oxygen deprivation caused by holding your hit in. Your heart only has a certain number of beats.
So no cancer, but smokong weed messes up your lungs. Don't bullshit nobody, including yourself.
In my case it is less damaging than what pain pills do to my liver so I will deal with my choices. But I will always be honest and admit, there is nothing safe about smoking anyting and to lead a young person who doesn't need marijauna and tell them it doesn't hurt anything is complete crap.

I agree, smoking anything is bad for the lungs. Just remember Marijuana has been on this planet longer than Human Beings. Most (man created) prescription drugs are not only known for severe side effects but for business and commercial use also. I'm in sales (making 60k to 90k yearly) The beauty of smoking everyday, the freedom to be creative in your own profession, the ability to overcome the negative information you read, watch on T.V., or hear about Marijuana. All in all, it's all in your head and how you perceive Life.

Igarettes are what ignorants like chris can't seem to spell correctly. Chris says things like "Mom are my brownies ready". see he/she lives at home and is your typical american slacker/loser ....etc.etc....

Speak is spelled speak, not speek. And, how can spelling be an important part of speaking. Is someone going to know whether you properly formed the spelling of the word or words in your mind, or if you used some phonetic spelling?

By the way. Some of the most intelligent people have been lousy at spelling. Edison is a good example, as was Marconi. Several of the greatest writers were poor at spelling as well. It isn't a mark of intelligence, it's simply something people, as a rule, don't bother to correct nearly so often as punctuation or syntax. And, since High, or Hi, as a descriptive term for being under the influence of marijuana is a colloquial term, it really is a matter of preference.

Don't be ridiculous Chris. You saw for yourself, from their entries, that many successful people smoke pot. I've had many friends, teachers, salesmen,(or salespersons rather. Must be PC), private business owners, docters and nurses, and the list goes on, who regularly smoke marijuana. They are quite professional with enviable service records to their credit.

Marijuana is just another of the many drugs people use. Legal ones such as tobacco and alcohol have far worse records, historically, both in the damage they've done to the users body and that they have caused to the families of the user and anyone associated with them.(Even to the unfortunate individual pedestrian or motorist who has been involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver). Many of the most prominent and successful citizens of society have died as a result of their dependance on alcohol, or commercial drugs.(Many have seen their successful careers derailed and destroyed by alcohol as well.)
