Bentley, check out this site. It's got info on marijuana addiciton. Summed up, it says weeds not physically addictive but you'll be addicted emotionally and metally.

some people can become addicted to anything. Its all about how strong, or dare i say, weak you are mentally. personally, i know i will never become addicted. i can easily go 2 months clean without even fealing an urge to smoke. i know many people, my sister for one, who should have never tried drugs because they just cant stop.

great link drake, very educational. one of the greatest marijuana sites ive been to.

Addiction has nothing to do with how "weak you are mentally." Addiction is caused by a gene. Some people have it, and some people do not. Simple as that.

Pred, feel free to tell me how much weed it takes for a person to overdose and die... Than tell me how much Alcohol it takes for someone to overdose and die...
And also, everytime a non-profit scientific group says there are very few downsides of Marijuana, a corporation such as Budweiser (funny how that corporation has the biggest anti-Marijuana campaign in the world huh?) has a scientific group come out and release a report that is contrary to that of the non-profit group...

And, how many people does everyone know who smokes Weed and gets violent?
And how many people drink Alcohol and get violent?

Exactly Curse.
You won't get an overdose of weed and die. You won't get agressive when smoking all that shit You just get passive like hell, fun isn't it?. Not all people get agressive when drinking too much alcohol. Weed is a soft drug and alcohol is a hard drug. So you can't compare those 2 at all.
But the fact is weed won't kill you immediately, it's a silent killer.

My conclusion:

If you need weed/alcohol or whatever drug there is out there to have fun, you're just a pathetic idiot. In the end it will kill you, you believe it or not...


Never argue with fools... They will only drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience...

What's wrong if people want to expirience highs? Alot of people do not require intoxicants to have fun, but many people like to have them to make relaxing easier and more enjoyable... Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see something from a different perspective? Or do you feel your perspective is perfect or what?

And people always think that Alcohol is safer than Marijuana because it is legal....

Bentley, you seem to be a proponent of "getting high" for fun. You suggest that everything would be funny and enjoyable. Tell me then, what happens then when someone who is high gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, and consequently, how does this differ from someone under the influence of alcohol?

Depends on what they are high on unreal. I smoke a fair amount of weed, and I have zero hesitation about getting behind the wheel high. Whether it is driving accross town to a friends or 3 hours down the highway to Edmonton, driving while high is not a problem. I have done it many times before, and I'm sure I'll prolly do it again. I see no harm in driving while stoned from smoking weed.

I never smoked pot for fun, I always did it to relax, how I was growing up it was rough as hell, rather than shooting myself I got stoned, it made things a little easier to cope with.

For note, people high behind the wheel are more aware than those drinking alcohol, because their scared shitless of going to jail, hell my brother drives better stoned than he does sober.

No matter how much a person says that they can drive while high, it is still a proven fact that a person's motor skills and reflexes are impaired while under the influence of marijuana. If you were high, could you effectively react if a car was to suddenly start moving into your lane just about to hit you?

I get high and go inline skating a few blocks away at the skate park. 20 ft halfpipe, and I skate it just fine. 360 grabs and all sorts of grinds are no problem. I get high and go skiing; 6ft of powder or non-stop moguls, either works for me. I get high and do all sorts of reflex intensive activities, and I have no trouble concentrating. And for all the years I have been high and drove, not once have I ever been in an accident. So to answer your question, yes, I can effectively react to that car moving into my lane about to hit me.

I'm all for smokin for relaxing or for fun or whatever, but I'm gonna have to side against driving while high. Hell, I can barely catch a damn lighter when I'm high, no way I'd trust myself or anybody else to drive. Giz, I've heard that certain drugs stay in your spinal chord and that if you crack your neck or soemthing like that you can experience a "flashback" like what you said. DOn't really know abhout it, just something I overheard a while ago.

Lysergic Acid Dythalimide [LSD, Acid] stays in your spinal fluid and many people can induce a trip by cracking their back.

And I know alot of people who get hyper active from smoking Marijuana, they don't seem to have impared motor skills or thought process, but rather they are wittier and do things more expediently... But I would not drive while high or let someone drive who is high...

$500,000 Bentley, you are an idiot! As I said before you can't compare alcohol and weed!!!
Alcohol is a hard drug if you believe it or not, and weed just is a soft drug, they are very very different worlds, so stop comparing them.

omg how can you say something like that, you probably never touched one drop of alcohol in your life. And when you have a "laugh kick" or whatever it's called, you laugh about the most stupid things there are. Isn't that beeing dumb, beeing an idiot?
Oh and btw i can make you act damn dumb when you're stoned, even agressive without even touching you. So the thing about people getting agressive when drinking alcohol is just shit. There are people who get agressive when drinking alcohol, but the same goes for weed.

And about the 2nd part about your statement. Why do I know a lot of people who get damn sick when smoking weed, even worse when getting drunk?
ha there.
Why do i just have the feeling that goes for you: "woohoo look at me i smoke weed, now look how cool i am now"

Ooh and Curse, i don't mind people smoking weed time to time to "broaden their horizon" or whatever. I just hate the attitude "i smoke weed so i'm cool and people beeing more stoned than sober", But what i said before still goes on. But smoking weed to relax, hmm maybe, but there is nothing more relaxing than getting a massage from a girl.

I've got to agree with with Bentley on this Pred, I think weed is better. I had to live most of my life with an alchoholic and it sucked. there was nothing good about it. on the other hand, i have lots of friends who smoke all the time. My friend Bjorn never takes off his shades cause his eyes are allways red. I think it's bad, but they're still cool to hang out with. I realize that both drugs are bad, and you're right, they can't really be compared, but that's my opinion.

ps: i have touched the stuff, and being drunk sucks, while being high is fun

Now me and Pred have reached an understanding...
I don't like people who think they are so cool because they smoke weed either...

As Curse said, if you do anything excessively its bad. Doing anything in moderation will certainly not harm you for a very long long time. For instance if you smoke like 3 cigarettes a day, it will take a long time for the negative consequences of smoking to kick in. Same thing for like 1 or 2 drinks a day. I've never smoked weed but I have done alcohol before(only like 1 or 2 glasses) and I really didn't see a problem with it. No hangover, no drunkeness, but I did actually enjoy reading the Odyssey for once...I guess I just can't understand why people can't control their urges for drugs and whatnot. Just cause you do drugs once, doesen't mean you have to do it the next day and so on and so forth...just do it when you need it. That way its not really abuse. There was this thing in the PARADE magazine yesterday that said kids are starting to drink younger and drink more. Most of them do it because they think it makes them cool and they hear about it at school and stuff, but the media is always trying to hype how drugs affect your grades and everything. No one ever does a study to see how one's personality and priorities and living environments and their parents affect their drug use, its always the other way around. Well, just wanted to add my 2 cents..

p.s. Bentley, how do you type like that on a regualar basis? I mean, is there a system or something?

I have to go with Curse. Perhaps I am a little bias but none the less there are NO studies that PROVE the weed has ANY ill effects. Unless of course you would like to belive what the government is spoon feeding you then by all means go right ahead.
