People that use it dont understand how the THC affects the brain, not the lungs. It is a narcotic and leads to stronger narcotics. Doctors have proven this through research.

I suppose we should drink coffee or alcohol casually considering they are drugs as well with a higher lethal potential

It helps with medical reasons and it keeps people calm instead of out on the streets fighting! I will always support it even though I don't smoke it!!

---------- Exactly! Alcohol is more deadly too.

The subject of this post is the legalization of MJ. If it were to be legalized,you would able to buy it, possess it,and sell it in small quantities ,but you would NOT be able to USE it legally if you have any kind of a real job where it is not allowed to be in your system while you are on the premises. Most smart companies spell the fact out up front that MJ and other drugs will not be tolerated. The workman's comp rules require that people be tested randomly and if you are injured on the job,you will be sent to a emergency care location where the first thing they do is hand you a specimen cup....no choise. You test positive in either case,you are history, with a dismissal report that will follow you when you look for another job. You can argue,cuss, and fuss all you want but the company cannot afford to have you there posing a danger to the other employees. If you are already financially set for life and don't ever need to work,go for it but if not,think about the consequences when you fire up that doobie.

Employed at what kind of job? Decent companies have strict policies on the subject so it's not a matter if you will be caught but when. Once you have a dismissal on your record,it's hard to even get a job flippin' burgers.

one does sales with a home heat/air company, one does diesel engine repair, one is a barber, the other that smokes daily raises beef cattle on his ranch. none of these have ever lost a job or been to jail for a felony, so does pot ruin your life only if you over do it like any other substance. legalise today!!!!!!!!!!
In a small company without substance restrictions or workmans comp,they are safe.

Whether we hate or love marijuana its here to stay in america, its use will go up and down as time passes year to year, but at no point in history has pot ever been phased out.
True. Even Queen Victoria used it for female discomfort.
