    1. It's their bodies. They can do what they want with them, regardless of the consequences.
    2. Weed is probably not even as bad as normal cigarettes anyways.

    It is in fact better than cigarettes for your health.

    I'd only eat it, and given the experience I had, I probably wouldn't do that anymore either.

    I don't know much about the pros and cons of legalizing weed, so I'll have to say I'm undecided.

    Btw, what is Tellurium? I see this in every poll. Is it like some default option set when you make poll threads?

    Neutral meme option.


    I don't give a shit about what people do with their time. However it might reduce the amount that's being smoked. or something.
    What's a sig btw

    Also in general I'm against the use of it because it turns you into an idiot temporarily. But it's not usually dangerous, so just don't drive or something while high and I don't care.

    man the legalization of a plant that has many helpful medical benefits with NO bad benefits and that would replace the paper industry's use of wood

    why the fuck not?

    besides when was the last time you officially heard or seen someone overdose on weed?

    According to http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1277837/ cannabis smoke is less carcinogenic than tobacco smoke.

    I meant effect

    and the worst weed would do is make you hungry and tired

    that's it.

    "No bad benefits" since I'm assuming you mean effects, literally almost anything, if done enough, can have bad effects. If weed had no bad effects, then why would it be illegal? By that logic, something as universally legal as chocolate would be unhealthier than a drug illegal in many places.

    "would replace the paper industry's use of wood" I have literally no idea where you got that from. Furthermore, the plant itself is not illegal I don't think (correct me if I'm wrong), just smoking it is, so as thus the legalization of smoking weed wouldn't affect that point at all.

    [The entire last sentence] just because you don't overdose something persay doesn't mean it's instantly healthy. Alcohol is unhealthy if used too often, yet overdose isn't a term used for it. Same with cigarettes and even cigars. Smoking weed, if used a lot, while it would not produce an overdose, but would instead long term damage the users body over time.

    BTW, in case you still don't realize weed has a ton of bad health effects, here's the WHO page on weed usage: http://www.who.int/substance_abuse/facts/cannabis/en/

    Well, you can literally drink yourself to death. That's how my uncle died, of alcohol poisoning. Alcohol is far more deadly than weed, yet it's legal for those over a certain age, depending on the country.

    I know. I didn't think to google the definition of overdose when typing that. I was just going by Drago_Meh saying overdose isn't a term used for weed, and was pointing out that people don't say "alcohol overdose" or "tobacco overdose."

    The suicide rate of Colorado has jumped up quite a lot after the legalization.

    The most recent data I found is from 2014 (see page 9) the year weed was legalized in Colorado. And the data doesn't really show a strong correlation with weed since the suicide rate climbed from 2010 to 2012 and was more or less the same in 2012 and 2014.

    By using searches for new sites ONLY, where they already did the research for me, this is what I got:

    pbs.org/newshour/rundown/studies-claim-medical-marijuana-may-reduce-suicide-rates-traffic-fatalities/ This was before it happened...

    1. inewsnetwork.org/2014/10/09/as-colorados-suicide-rate-climbs-new-tools-aimed-at-awareness-prevention/ Wow... Even from the same news center. Thats PBS for ya...

    2. nytimes.com/2014/06/01/us/after-5-months-of-sales-colorado-sees-the-downside-of-a-legal-high.html?_r=0

    Not only suicide, it is also causing a great increase in car accidents:

    cnsnews.com/commentary/cully-stimson/pot-positive-traffic-fatalities-100-colorado

    And just about every problem that is death-related is shown here:

    Yes
    Weed and alcohol are pretty much on the same level for me. Both don't have bad consequences if you don't overuse or even abuse them. Both have the possibility to be harmful if used stupidly in the wrong environment, but both also have the possibility of being a fun experience if used in the right environment.

    I have experienced both of them, and came to the conclusion that they are both not really my thing to do. But I don't see how weed could do more harm than alcohol, especially when considering that weed is one of the least unhealthy drugs, alcohol is way more bad, as well as cigarettes, which are both legal.
