Insulting you insite? You said yourself that "you do smoke weed." Since when stating the fact that smoking weed impairs individuals is an
I have personally seen what weed does in college.
In my own class one acquaintance of mine was affected by smoking weed. He would fall asleep in class, and you could see in his "happy" face what
was wrong with him. He wouldn't deny he had been smoking weed. Well, my point is, he had to drop from college because the weed kept twisting his
thinking, and he had the attention span of a 2 year old for hours after smoking weed to the point that the professors had to throw him out from
You want to waste your life smoking weed, go ahead. I prefer to have an adrenaline rush by parachuting or doing some other natural adrenaline rush
activity that is safer for others and I and doesn't impair my thinking. I also prefer, along with most Americans, not to have this drug legal in the
US, because its true that we have more than enough deaths caused by "drunk drivers."
Yasem, btw, for someone who keeps bashing and insulting Americans that "on your opinion" are "dumbed-down" and are becoming sheep, you surely
defend and want to make legal substances that would "dumb-down" our youth, and America in the overall even more. Good job, i see where you are
And as for moderate drinking is bad for you, post reliable links, because I have heard quite the contrary, that a glass of wine a day with food is

"The American Heart Association recommends that if people choose to drink, they should drink moderately. One should limit alcoholic beverages to 1-2
drinks per day (A drink is one 12 oz. beer, 4 oz. of wine, 1.5 oz. of 80-proof spirits, or 1 oz. of 100-proof spirits). Studies have found that
people who drink moderately have heart disease less often than nondrinkers. However, when people do drink more alcohol, public health dangers
increase. These include alcoholism, high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, suicide, and accidents."

That's a reliable link, if you want to dispute this, post an "unbiased link" that says that drinking rarely or moderately has killed people, or has
second hand effects which impairs your senses.
Some facts about Marijuana.
"Marijuana affects your brain. THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) affects damages the nerve cells in the part of the brain where memories are
formed, making it hard to remember things.
Marijuana affects your self-control. Marijuana can seriously affect your sense of time and your ability to do things that require coordination-like

Marijuana is not always what it seems. Before it is sold, marijuana can be laced with other dangerous drugs without your knowledge.
"Blunts"-hollowed-out cigars filled with marijuana-sometimes have substances such as crack coc aine, PCP, or embalming fluid added to them.
Marijuana can be addictive. As with alcohol and many other drugs, not everyone who uses marijuana becomes addicted, but some users do develop signs of
dependence on the drug. They may experience such withdrawal symptoms as loss of appetite, sleep problems, weight loss, and shaky hands. In 1995,
165,000 people entered drug treatment programs to kick their marijuana habit."

The links i have seen you post come from biased people who want to smoke weed all the time by making it legal, and making money from selling weed,
instead of getting a career and finding a "job" to make money. This is one of the things that is wrong with our country, a lot of people want to
find the easy way to make money and be a pothead all the time.
