Pro pot propagandists will say anything to downplay the harmful effects of weed. It doesn't fit their agenda for legalization. I smoked the stuff for years my entire family smokes the stuff. I have an aunt that smoked it since the 60's. I've seen plenty of damage caused from the stuff. Marijuana is a mind altering psychoactive substance. Just because no ones ever overdosed does not make it harmless. The only people pushing for legalization are the addicts and people that want to profit from it or those naive enough to believe the addicts. I know 2 types of addicts those that can't function without being stoned from the time they wake up until the time they go to sleep. The other is stoned from the time they get off work until they go to bed. Of all the people I've ever known that smoke weed very few are casual users.

Sorry my dear friend I can talk about what I like until the administration removes it, I've even read over the past few weeks plenty of self experience threads.. I feel like I've hit a few nerves here , I get the impression most people who I talk to on here are pro weed teenagers looking for a viable excuse as to smoke pot
So let's get started
1. Yes you do grow a tolerance to MJ
2.you can be physically and mentally addicted to it!
3.It causes short term memory loss
4.It 'can' lead to further drug misuse
5.it can be used beneficial for medicinal use..
6.it can cause phycosis

Actually, it turns out that depression probably causes addiction, not particular substances.
