I currently do not use marijuanna but I do think it should be legalized, for the simple reason of it helps you relax. And be calm. It will be alot better with a lot less side effects than most of your nerve medications.

I personally believe Marijuana is better for you than prescription drugs, especially those damn depression meds. Who knows what the hell is in those scrips? At least with Marijuana we know what we're putting in our bodies.

Think about it. Marijuana ruins lives, why make it easy for people, how many people are alcoholics because it is so easy to get.

How many people abuse prescriptions? How many people abuse nicotine? How many people abuse the energy drinks and pills you can buy at your local gas stations? I could go on and on about the things people abuse "just because they can."

The health impact of any drug depends on how it's used, who's using it, how much is used, and under what circumstances. Marijuana and alcohol are no exception, so comparing them directly is difficult each possesses the potential for unique risks or benefits.

For instance, alcohol is known to contribute to liver disease, but studies also suggest that a nightly glass of red wine can help keep your heart healthy. Similarly, marijuana is known to cause short-term cognitive impairment (trouble thinking clearly), but for certain medical conditions, such as glaucoma and cancer, marijuana possesses therapeutic properties.

On the other hand, people using marijuana or alcohol with the intention of getting high or drunk are more likely to experience the better-known negative consequences of these drugs. Alcohol use may contribute to memory loss, impaired judgment, academic, relationship, or work problems, along with long-term impacts like liver disease, heart disease, peptic ulcers, and physical dependency. Marijuana use may contribute to problems thinking clearly, memory loss, dependency, and (if smoked) smoking-related health problems, such as throat and lung cancer and respiratory problems. Furthermore, both alcohol and marijuana are thought to contribute to mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety. One major difference worth noting is that it isn't possible to ingest a fatal dose of THC (the active compound in marijuana) from smoking or eating marijuana. On the flip side, lots of alcohol in a brief period of time can lead to alcohol poisoning, an emergency medical condition that can be fatal.

its all in your head....look i smoke weed everyday and i dont have difficulty thinking or living a normal life. i have been to college i have a degree. i graduated with a 4.0 so i think if you let something as docile as maryjane take you down you are a very weak person. i use it for my mood and depression that i have that perscription drugs never helped me with. what made me smoke again is because when i was younger i didnt have these types of emotional problems because i smoked, so i started back and i feel better than ever...now i have to hide in a dark alley way takin my "medication" while someone else can pop a whole xanax bar and drive down the road and go where ever

I am a daily smoker, I work 50hrs a week and raise my family! It helps me not freak out on people. I wish people could really understand how it can help so many people. You won't see some stonee break into a home, speed down the road, or steal for it. I would hang around a smoker any day compared to a tweeker!

I'm all for making it legal though I've never smoked it myself.
