Wonderfully stupid apparently.... It doesn't take a genius to not jump off a building 90 feet up only because you were dared.

Goes back to the old mother'izm "If you're friends jumped off a bridge would you?"

I cannot believe the stupid comments that I am reading here. I didn't know that all you people are so perfect that you have never made any mistakes. Here is a teenage boy, a human being, that made a mistake and paid for it with his life. None of these people who made the comments below knew him, or what might have possibly been going on in his life that might have made him want to do the drugs to take away the pain. How dare you be so judgemental...I feel terrible for the family and for him, this is a terrible tragedy...
Lady, those that keep putting him up on a pedestal like he was Jesus aren't exactly in the right either. We're just grateful he didn't hurt anyone else such as anyone walking under the hotel at the time. We also hope these little drug smoking brats sober up to realize what a friend they lost because of their/his stupidity tied to their abuse of drugs.

I don't know about you but I'd like to think that those who did this sort of thing with him often don't get high and do it again next week or the week after.

You guys need to stop being so insensitive! I have never heard such mean things about a tragic accident, you do know his friends and family are reading this right?
Just stop and think what if it was your brother, or friend?!?!
And you saw all you assholes write "what a idiot, lesson learned dahaha" the problem i think here is not enough people have a heart anymore.

My prayers are with him, his friends and FAMILY.

Number one, if it where my brother or friend they wouldn't have been high.

Number two, if I found out they used drugs *which it seems from all the friends and videos he had on the internet it wouldn't have been hard to find out* I would try and get them help, if they refused I'd turn their sorry butts into the authorities and let them spend a night in jail and see if they then decided they could be a decent human being and get off that crap.

Jumping out off the 9th story isn't an accident and if loss of life wasn't intended then it was stupid'cide plain and simple. People like you who rationalize everything in the "oh they didn't know better" are the reason for kids walking into schools killing one another, jumping out of buildings, so on and so forth. Then you wonder why they did it, have your whinge and moan and cry over their loss which wasn't their fault nor their parents just an "accident". Slipping on ice is an accident! Spilling a drink in the floor is an accident! Throwing your drink across the room to see if someone can catch it and wondering why it spilled all over the bleeding place is stupid! The same as again jumping out a window from 90 feet up to hit a pool!

Yet when I reply back to you with scientific facts you fail to respond. Again I ask you, other than your own self study what facts do you have? How can so many doctors, psychologists, universities, hospitals, and economists be so wrong and you're the only one right about the ill effects of drugs? Perhaps using drugs so much is creating delusions of grandeur. You should seek the help of a psychologist yourself.

Actually you have to look at the social economic classes using crack cocaine that coincide with larger cities during a time of mass layoffs tied into mass racism.
It doesn't take a genius to read medical journals nor text books to point to the mass risk and near certain death from the use of drugs. Moreover; it doesn't take a genius to understand the socio-economical risks/henderance of those whom use drugs. Other than your own self study what facts do you have that it doesn't do what countless universities, hospitals, doctors, economists, and psychologists say? How can so many be wrong whilst you're the only one right?
As for benefits of marijuana:
#1) The Scripps Research Institute demonstrated that cannabis slowed the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
#2)In two 1977 JAMA studies, the American Medical Association (AMA) officially announced its support for the decriminalization of marijuana. Why would the American Medical Association support decriminalization if marijuana were so harmful?
#3)It is possible to get cancer when you smoke anything, so naturally it is possible. Also, in some people bronchitis occurs. But, marijuana does not need to be smoked in order to get its beneficial qualities. You can also eat marijuana by making cannabutter and cooking with that. Cancer is COMPLETELY avoided, 100%.
#4) It is impossible to overdose from using marijuana. Most doctors and researchers today say that amount of marijuana consumed to overdose would be a 40,000:1. With alcohol, I've seen anywhere from 3:1 to 11.1; it's obvious that potential risk of your sangria is must greater than my bong hits.
#5)14% of all blindness in America is due to glaucoma. Studies show that marijuana would benefit 90% of the 2.5million glaucoma patients, and has been found to be 2 to 3 times more effective than any current medications for reducing ocular pressure. Does glaucoma run in your family?-Marijuana may be right for you!
#6)In 1999, The Institute of Medicine stated, "The accumulated data indicated a potential therapeutic value for cannabinoid drugs, particularly for symptoms such as pain relief, control of nausea and vomiting, and appetite stimulation." The U.S. government says marijuana has no medicinal value, who do you trust?
#7)The same 1999 report also speculated whether medicinal use of marijuana would cause an increase in marijuana use in the general population, they found, "At this point there are no convincing data to support this concern. The existing data are consistent with the idea that this would not be a problem if the medical use of marijuana were as closely regulated as other medications with abuse potential." So much for gateway drug.
#8)Cannabis is the best natural expectorant to clear the human lungs of smog, dust and the phlegm associated with tobacco use.
Marijuana smoke effectively dilates the airways to the lungs, the bronchi, opening them to allow more oxygen into the lungs. It is also the best natural dilator of the tiny airways of the lungs, the bronchial tubes - making cannabis the best overall bronchial dilator for 80% of the population (the remaining 20% sometimes show minor negative reactions).
#9)Dr. Donald Tashkin, at UCLA, said, "Taking a hit of marijuana has been known to stop a full blown asthma attack." For thousands of years we have literature documenting the use of marijuana for asthma. And look at #8 to see why this is medically.
#10)This is one just going to use simple logic. A report in 2006 showed that 17 peopled died that year in automobile accidents related to marijuana use. That same year 110,000 people died from drunk driving. And every year 1 in 5 people die from tobacco related ilnesses. Not one person has died from marijuana, ever. All we need do is use common sense to tell us that making marijuana illegal is ridiculous, and when we educate ourselves we find it's outright insane.

Yeah and morphine is used as a pain medication whilst opium is the source of it. I wouldn't mind the doctor giving me morphine in the hospital but I sure don't want them to make me smoke opium.

The poison from a viper can kill you if directly injected into your body via the snake or other means. A synthesized portion of the venom found in the Jararaca viper is where we get ACE *Angiotensin Converting Enzyme* inhibitors from.

The poison from a funnel web spider *it's from NSW and I can tell you it's scary having a friend nearly die from its bite* can kill a human and or any other living creature. The poisons from it are being studied to use as a pesticide as it's toxins work differently on every creature. Again, something someone shouldn't just keep as a pet to kill the bugs.

Many things in nature can be used as cures for the health problems that plague the human body. Why even working on making the enzyme from saltwater crocs blood that kills HIV and any other virus and or bacteria that enters into it's blood stream. How great would that be? But again, I wouldn't go out try to catch on of the beasts and do a transfusion of it's blood to mine!

You should fart more often, its when you hold those in they work up your spine and BAM a crappy thought process is born.

Okay, I am sick of this. I don't care how educated you are, or what "scientific facts" you have stored in that big head of yours! Save your smart a*s remarks for something much more worth your time. You may be a book smart guy but from every word you've said you seem pretty close-minded to me. Yeah, SCIENCE, the one thing that can break every single substance down to a literal nothing.

It shouldn't be too hard, you seem to know enough. Maybe where you can buy some cheap glue thinner?
Seriously, if you can argue like that, and pull all these facts out of thin air, than maybe you should find some place else to make your point, rather than a news article where people's comments should be souly revolving around people grieving or paying their respects. Sounds LOGICAL to me.

To really understand this you have to understand how the plant grows and how the high works.
First, when you inhale marijuana THC and other cannabinoids, found in the smoke, will absorb into the blood stream. Once in the blood these chemicals, or drugs, travel to your brain. Ironically our brain has cannabinoid receptors, if we didn't have them we could not get high from marijuana, the joining of the cannabinoids and the receptors will result in the high.
All throughout nature there are different plants, vegetables, fruits, legumes, etc. that we eat. When we were hunter gatherers that's how we survived, by knowing what we could and could not eat. There are many things in the wild that should not be eaten and are dangerous when they are consumed, but marijuana has been used without incident for thousands of years.
Look at the foods eaten in ancient Greece, we probably couldn't choke down much of their food today because we like our food to look a certain way. Plus there could have been lots of sanitation issues, point is that our diet has evolved as we educate ourselves. For instance, there had to be some point where we learned its better to cook meat. Well, marijuana continues to be a staple diet for millions around the world, I think 67 million people in America admit to have smoking marijuana at some time.
If marijuana is not right for you, by all means decline it. But don't mascarade around on your high horse talking about health when you're consuming sangria-which if you were to have drank it during Prohibition you'd be criminal. Alcohol causes more deaths, and more domestic disputes than any other drug on the planet, so start using facts and stop judging.

Oh I'm sorry when did news stories become about feelings rather than facts? I can just see it, Hillary feels she won the election more that Obama feels that he did, she wins a by a hug. Some how I think all of us whom voted and or know better look at the numbers of who got the most. Oh wait that's called facts which is what news is made up of. You want to leave RIP messages try his myspace page which is more about a person and their feelings rather than a news page based on fact.

Perhaps if you took the time to brush up on your book studies in one hand and make peace with your maker on the other you might see what a paradise we live in. God helps those whom help themselves.

Two days ago you said one didn't have to smoke it rather imbibe it due to health concerns yet now you're making claims that it should be smoked. I wish you'd make up your mind. As for the ancient foods of the Greeks, I'm quite sure wine, fruit, bread and fish is something I could personally eat with out question. Now for my sangria, I wouldn't have drank it during the time of prohibition as the booze would have been A. illegal and B. I wouldn't want to support any criminal element that could supply it. I wish you could say the same about your drugs.

I understand choking oneself gets a person high, would you do it knowing the risks? Just say no works plain and simple. I've been offered drugs and cancer sticks before and each time I have been able to say no. Pray tell when you where first offered weed was there some 250kg gorilla there to sit on you and force it down you or was it that you did not have the courage to simply say no?

Your information is flawed, studies show only some people have canniboid receptors in the brain not all. That doesn't mean you must use the receptors, it on average the human uses only 3-5% of their brain imagine if you studied hard to make that number greater rather than using a drug that shows side effects on the memory. I'm grateful that Newton, Edison, or even Einstein didn't touch the stuff or we'd still be in the dark ages.

Coca leaves are eaten by indigenous peoples where it's grown yet cocaine contains many more chemicals that could kill you. It along with other "natural" plants and their extracts have been legal before only until science proved it was so bad for the human body that they were declared illegal not only by congress but other world governments.

Mercury is a "natural" item found in nature and as far back as human civilization goes was used as a way to promote vitality, help broken bones, produce cosmetics, mixed with pumice as a tooth paste substance and many other things. Would you purpose that since people in ancient times used it in so many different applications that we should ignore science and go back to using it?

Do you have any idea how illogical you sound when your flout your ideas on something proven to be dangerous?

I'm sure he was a wonderful, nice and charming young man. What angers me is to see such a young life snatched from us as a society by a very poor decision to use drugs. Unlike some of the other people here I hope that he's at peace in heaven enjoying the afterlife. It's just sad that he was taken from you all so early. Do learn from his mistake.

In response to Big Jake:

First of all you're not using much logic here. You were the one whining that marijuana is unhealthy because it's smoked. I personally don't believe it's as unhealthy as many other things, but I think the debate can be easily won without marijuana smoke being healthy, hence the reason I brought up that you can eat it.
On your sangria, you say you wouldn't purchase alcohol today because you've never faced prohibition, but can you honestly say, if alcohol were prohibited and a friend offered you some booze for cheap, that you wouldn't buy it? You may not, and that's fine but, as was learned from alcohol prohibition, the average person would go to speakeasys or purchase moonshine. The problem is that making drugs and alcohol illegal does put money in drug traffickers hands, and there's so much money to be made selling drugs that the drug war will never be won.
I seeked out marijuana myself. I had just enrolled in a secular college and did a paper on the drug war, it was at that time that I learned the controversy concerning drugs, before then I was clueless, I had thought illegal drugs were bad and that's that. After I finished my paper and made an A, I decided to experiment with the drug, and that's what I did. I was a heavy drinker at the time, and spent many summer nights passed out. I had always declined weed, and it was offered A LOT. I just believed the myth that it was bad. But when I tried it, and that's why I say you have no say if you've never tried it, I saw that there was nothing wrong with it. I had the best sleep of my life, and I DIDN'T wake up with a hangover, plus no stories of stupid stunts I had pulled...It was like a miracle drug. But, I vowed to myself that I would not smoke it again until I fully researched the subject: I did just that for a good 6 months. When I was drinking I was a completely different person, my relatives even commented on several occasions, but with weed there was no change, I was me with a different way of looking at the world. I smoke marijuana daily, and I am majoring in philosophy, make straight A's, pay my taxes, am an upright citizen, and I don't feel I should be labeled a criminal for using one of the drugs the government doesn't deal.
Again, I don't think you've done any research but read anti-drug sites. Marijuana studies conclusively show that marijuana only impairs short-term memory and it's only for the duration of the high.
