No, nobody has to admit that it kills brain cells because there's no evidence that that is true. I'll agree that people in general are stupid enough as it is. But there's no evidence that weed makes you stupider.
Most importantly though, it is each person's own personal decision, and even if it was lowering people's I.Q.s, that would still be no reason to take our freedoms away by force. It's not like alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine turn people into geniuses.
I have used and quit for awhile and started again. In my experience I smoked from the tiime I was 17 until I was 32. Then I quit cold turkey not one withdrawal. Started remembering a lot of things I had forgotten so I don't think I kills brain cells I think it just affects long term memory and hell most the memories I had forgotten went back as far as like 5 years old and I started using again around 40 I will be 44 my birthday I make near 50000 a year so believe I am far from stupid and I still remember those I had forgotten I may forget them again the longer I use but I know this besides deadly cigarettes its my only vice and I think it shoiuld be legal and only available to people 21 n older. They were selling that Mr Smiley crap across the counter and it killed people I know .
I can't think of 1 person under the influence of only pot die from it or kill someone. Just my opinion

Should be educated first of responsibilities and consequences before the user takes it, because a drug is still a drug, yet this drug is just plain awesome for anti-pain and relaxation.

Pot might actually caused lots of indirect cause of death it is. Like doing dangerous things when you're high, like driving and walking across the street.
You get the idea?
Yet I support Marijuana for It's "natural" uses, and analgesic properties.
