"Brain imaging research techniques such as PET scans (positron emission tomography) and fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) clearly show that the vast majority of the brain does not lie fallow. Indeed, although certain minor functions may use only a small part of the brain at one time, any sufficiently complex set of activities or thought patterns will indeed use many parts of the brain. Just as people don't use all of their muscle groups at one time, they also don't use all of their brain at once. For any given activity, such as eating, watching television, making love, or reading Skeptical Inquirer, you may use a few specific parts of your brain. Over the course of a whole day, however, just about all of the brain is used at one time or another."

Marijuana is like any other drug, it should be used in moderation. "As long as it doesn't harm you, why would it bother you".

I got another reason Drugs are bad. Me and a friend were at a party and we were fucked up, we walked to the gas station and on the way back it got dark. We couldnt find his house so we wondered around for about 3:00 am and we were out of it. Well i was seeing and hearing shit when all of a sudden i saw my other friend wave at me from a window or so i though... so we went inside and sat down 10 mins later we found out this was my friends house that had the party and ran out. 5 mins latter we were picked up my the pigs

Hmm, looks like the problem there exists with you and your friend and not with the drugs. If people aren't responsible and do not use things in moderation, then bad things like that, can happen. Hell, if yo wanna be stupid and OD on tylenol, you can become sicker than a dog. So my point it, the drugs aren't a problem, your maturity at the time is. Seeing and hearing stuff? Pick a better situation and mindframe to trip in. Get a trip sitter. Know your limit.

Ares, great adventure! LOL. Shit well it varies per a person, thoughts on drugs and how they can handle it. Some people have an idea what they are doing, can remember whats going on, even though things are fucked up. Point is, if you are one of em people who can't be outside when high dont go outside lol. So far we been talking about weed, weed, weed.... The topic is drugs are bad... I don't see a problem with weed, as long you know your limit. However I do have to agree there are bad drugs out there that can really fuck up your body.

Hmm well the issue is that hasn't been exactly proven. Sure we lose brain cells but that doesn't mean we stop making new ones. I mean you are saying every stoner is moron. I know a kid in my grade who is a heavy stoner and he gets nothing lower then at 90 in any of his classes, he is very bright.

hkzknight: are you talking high school classes or college classes? cuz getting good grades in high school isn't shit. unless you're from europe, they have hard schools. but american high schools are too easy. hell.. even most basic college courses are simple. now, if he was studying quantum computing and still doing that well.. ok then, you've made a point.

Actully it varies per HS, the New York ones are toughest (damn regions). He is a friend of mine in College doing engineering. I can't agree on the fact every stoner is dumb... I am sure you can find some genius stoner out there.

new york high schools are the toughest? hahaha. but they aren't any good. i went to one of the "best" high schools in the nation... it was fucking easy as hell.

i agree that not every single stoner is stupid... but most are. it's rare to find one that isn't. i know a guy that used to be a huge pothead...he was always highly intelligent. so i know what you're saying. but still.. you have to admit that most people that do drugs are stupid.
