Answer #1

Weed kills your brain cells over time. It’s not a smart thing to do. I will pray for you.

Answer #2

I Write music as well, I been into it for forever, I started piano about 20 years ago lol, damn I’m old… anyways, I agree wit all that, and even da drivin high part, that you “CAN” but I don’t agree that you “SHOULD”.

Answer #3

Im working my way through university, have gotten A’s in all my classes so far and have been smoking pot since the 10th grade, go figure

Answer #4

thank you ty, I thought that was obvious but I guess not…

and there are quite a few pilots, bus drivers, taxi drivers, engineers, and ship captains that operate while intoxicated and disobey those laws…

It is about responsibility…not if it is against the law or not…

Answer #5


“Are you working to make alcohol illegal? That also slows down a person’s reaction time…:”

There are already laws on the books which make it illegal to drink alcohol within a specified number of hours before operating a plane, bus, taxi, train and ship, so I don’t have to do anything about it.

Answer #6

You know, we’re not saying that pot makes people dumb, nor am I saying that only dumb people smoke pot. A lot of smart people do, I understand that, but it’s kind of like the whole blonde thing (typical stereotype). I have natural blonde hair and I am a stay at home mother of 3. Before that I was an accountant, this was after I graduated from college with honors. But because of my hair I fall into that “stupid” category. All I have ever said is that people grow up and don’t want to have that fuzzy feeling anymore. The older you get the more you realize that it is really something that only “kids” do. I have never been on a high horse and thought that I was better than anyone else (I used to smoke pot). I now have children and I would never let them have a mother that is a pothead (I could never do that to them).

What I want to know is why is it wrong for some people to not want pot legalized? You have an opinion, so do I. What makes my opinion wrong? At least I have seen the world from both sides.

Answer #7

Pot doesn’t make you dumb, and it doesn’t kill brain cells. It does reduce motivation and social development while you are tripping. What is available now is much stronger than back when I was -um- growing up, and it’s effects are almost opioid. IF you have the genetics of addiction you can get hooked on it. And then it can lead to depression, paranoia, and memory lapses. When the addict comes off of pot addiction, the bad effects will disappear. There are going to be those who strongly deny that pot is addictive, and to many it isn’t even if they are abusing it. But for the TRUE addict who has had enough and is ready to quit, go to an MA (Marijuana Anonymous) meeting and raise your hand and get a sponsor. Or else you will not quit. To get the phone number of MA, call your local AA (Alcoholics Anonymous). Until you have had enough, enjoy. Good Luck!!

And don’t get caught. Even a misdemeanor on a police record can keep you from getting many jobs.

Answer #8

so hey, I’ve been smoking since I was thirteen. on a regular basis, and my grades haven’t dropped, I haven’t lost any motivation, I have a high paying job, a car, a 3.7 GPA. annnd I take extra colleges. im sorry that some people do get “dumb” when they smoke. but that is just stereotyping weed. if it really killed as many brain cells as some of you think, would they really be PRESCRIBING it to people as medical marijuana? I don’t think so. weed affects different people in different ways. so while it might make YOU, or YOUR FRIENDS complete idiots. it may make my day a little brighter. haha

so yeah.

smart stoner right here.

Answer #9

Unfortunately Ethmer, according to federal drug studies, the dosage it would require to die from Marijuana is something to the tune of 3260 lbs at one time for a human. This, compared to cigarettes or even over the counter drugs like advil, is probably one of the safest “drugs” around. As well, the side effects are among the least, provided you dont try driving under the influence of marijuana (which could be fun, dont get me wrong, but your reaction time is most definitely altered) are, in the words of Katt Williams, “Happy, sleepy, hungry.”

Sidenote, a good friend of mine smokes every day and has something to the tune of a 3.8 in the UC system and is at least as smart of me, but definately more hard working.

Answer #10

You should read Rorschach’s Ribs, by Marcus Eder…it’s a very intelligent book with a real and respectful portrayal of potheads…

“Finally a book that doesn’t turn pot-heads into cartoon caricatures. A book that not only paints a relevant portrait of Bush’s recession, but celebrates the lives of smokers in a realistic, albeit bitingly funny, light.”

Answer #11

me personally pot chills me down, it doesn’t make me unmotivated what so ever either. if anything I’m more creative and more opt to go do some form of artwork. for those who say it made you stupid and unmotivated hun thats not the pot at all. another example my sister, she’s horribly high strung and you cant have a conversation with her without her having an emotional break down. she’s been this way her whole life. the only time she really can have an in depth conversation is when she’s high. you can’t say thats cause she smokes that cause her to be high strung either cause as I stated she’s been this way her whole life. it really helps a lot of people out. I truly dont understand why it’s illegal especially when alcohol is legal. when drunk your so much more opt to go run into trafic naked. I just dont understand the ethics of america

Answer #12

I completely agree with cminor, and along with everyone else who agrees that you can be smart and a pothead too! I attended private schooling my entire life since first grade, so academics have always been very hard. I am currently 20 years old, sophomore in college, doing pretty well, I smoke the good marijuana..very potent strains every single day, and have everyday for over a year now. I don’t think that I am addicted either, I have quit before with no symptoms, the fact is, I just love to smoke, period. I have played piano for over 10 years, and feel that I can even play better when I am blazed. Guitar Hero also…I play on expert any song, so I’m fairly good, but when I’m blazed as balls…I can hit some note streaks that I never could sober…I guess it is just different for everyone. I love to listen/write music, play music, video games, I can do anything high. I can drive high probably better than I can drive sober. Marijuana should be legal! I am living proof everyday that I can be a normal, law-obiding citizen, family member, student, or w/e…and all under the influence of marijuana. STAND UP for your rights.

Answer #13

“I would not like to see pot legalized because it has been documented, in animal studies, that, while on pot, an individual’s reaction time slows down.”

Are you working to make alcohol illegal? That also slows down a person’s reaction time…

Answer #14

I would not like to see pot legalized because it has been documented, in animal studies, that, while on pot, an individual’s reaction time slows down.

Since being high on pot isn’t as readily detectable as some other drugs, I wouldn’t want to be at risk of a pot-head piloting a bus, taxi, train or airplane that I might be a passenger on.

Answer #15

lol I guess teachel should pray for all of us… My main goal is to get people off of their high horse, like their better than people just because they don’t smoke and smoking is so horrible… blah blah blah, STFU lmao… There’s plenty of genuises that smoke herb on a daily basis. I feel bad for the morons that are dumb and can’t even blame it on pot lol

Answer #16

People smoking pot doesn’t make them dumb - I have no problem with people smoking pot as long as they aren’t letting it control them. Some people are irresponsible with it, but most are fine.

Answer #17

people who smoke weed can be smart like the guy said if a stoner is stupid then he had to be to start with I should know my parents and me are all stoners . I live with them daily and they are all smart !!

Answer #18

LoL I’ve been on a bus where the bus driver was mad drunk… I’d have rather him been high to tell you the truth. I’ve drove drunk, and I”ve drove high, and you’re waaay worse off driving drunk… Though truth be told I should drive 100% sober, and I agree with that. And just because Pot is legal doesn’t mean it should be legal to drive on pot… I agree with that… I’m glad to see so many people hit this post up, a lot of people think potheads are stupid retarded people, and thats half the reason it’s not legal. sooo, people need to stand up and show the world how smart you can be and still smoke pot. and I know they say it messes with your coordination, but I play piano, and I can blaze up and actually play just as good if not better, and trust me I’ve been playin since I was 4, I”m playin complicated stuff. I usually excell in anything hand eye coordinated when I’m high, like riding a bike, playin video games, makin music… corse everyone is a little different, but I’m just sayin, people don’t understand how it works in some peoples bodys. I got ADHD, and trees slow my mind down just right…

Answer #19

There is actually new research that shows marijuana only makes people have memory lapses, coordination problems and learning problems while they are HIGH. So if you are high, you might not want to take that time so study for your exams at med school but other than that go for it. Throughout my teenage years I smoked weed very reguarly and got all A’s at a private school and trained seven hours a day to become an Olympic swimmer. I got severly injured and never made the Olympic team because of it so I went to Brown instead. Of course potheads can be smart! And all the potheads I know now and used to know were/are the smartest people I knew. They reguarly played chess, excelled in school, were dedicated to sports and hobbies, loved other people, did community service, and oh yeah, had a lot of fun high times. Peace!

Answer #20

Well im not a pothead anymore, but I used to be and I still do it for old times sake. Lets see, my IQ is 162 im 19 years old and going to school for Interior Design then Architecture. My highschool GPA is 4.2 in academic level classes, I also know how to desgin and build computer hardware and software, an A+ Certified network technician… The speed and things I think of are beyond imaginative to the average human. Oh I used to smoke at least a gram a day throughout highschool, and drink every weekend some week nights and week days (in between class).

To those younger people and others who are curious, I’m in a range of less then 1% of the population able to do what I do, so dont do what I do and think you will be the same :)

Answer #21

Okay, I stood up but I got a head rush…

Answer #22

there are more important things, but my kids goto grade A schools, and they both do very well, I’d put my daughter to the test against any kid her age or even a little older, not to mention, since the schools suck me and my girl take it upon ourselves to educate our children… sooo, I have the time to focus on legalizing something I feel should be legalized

Answer #23

I dunno, sorry for what you went thru, but thats not the majority of people. Alcohaul is a much larger gateway than weed. And I’ve smoked a long time and it’s never affected anyone around me. I work every day and I’m not lazy. There are far more success stories than faliur stories of pot. You just don’t hear the success stories because successful potheads have to keep the fact that they’re a successful pothead on the downlow for risk of penalty from their jobs and whatnot. since the successful potheads got to keep quiet about it and the loser potheads are often seen or told about it sure looks to the naked eye like almost all potheads are the same. If pot became legal you’d see how many really really smart, even genuis potheads would step out of the smoke…

Answer #24

I have a 3.4 GPA so obviously weed doesn’t slow me down..

Answer #25

I agree… ya’ll should listen to hippiepeaceprincess because she’s an intelligent woman :)

Answer #26

There could be laws that restrict pot use just like they restrict alcohol use (like when driving etc…)

Answer #27

Pot isn’t the bad thing. I have personally never tried it. But my mom started when she was 21. It led to worse drugs and now I haven’t seen her in ten years. pot is bad because it makes most people lazy and not care. Not all, but most. I believe its a choice you make. But it doesn’t only mess with your life, it messes with everyone around you.

Answer #28

lol I hear you man there are too many ignorant people theres so much misleading information about marijuana

These are some of the comments I have copied from a forum

-pharmaceuticals are known to kill more people than illegal drugs

-marijuana is the number 1 cash crop in the world it serves as a natural medicine and has many other uses thats why they prohibited it so big companies can make more profit thanks to “bad journalism”

-can also help aids patients, aids diminishes appetite have them smoke a joint and they regain their appetite counteracting the illness

-no one can die from smoking cannabis and has been no known deaths compared to everything else including alcohol, tobacco, etc..

I myself have asthma and smoking opens up my airways making it easier to breathe with no side effects when medically legalized in my state I look foward to becoming a patient for prescription marijuana. 12 states have already legalized it along with other countries in the world and more following my job is to educate people that are not aware of the plants uses


-I did most of my research through websites, books, magazines, and the news high times magazine etc..

  • theres more to it than just getting high and I believe legalizing it would make this a better world to live in

-God bless the whole crop!

  • and for people that dont smoke, you dont need to smoke it to support it

-all the better reason for the government to legalize.. couple reasons why it should be legalized: -will be removed from black market and stop empowering gang members -medical reasons -would be sold like alcohol, remember alcohol was once prohibited too (in stores away from children, have to be 21+) -would be a law that you cant drive while intoxicated on weed -prison population would lower (prisons are overcrowding with nonviolent offenders) -keep patients from being convicted -would provide millions of jobs for people -would make us an independent country (fuel, etc.., debt free america)

people with an addiction (including hard drugs) shouldnt be thrown in jail, they need help theres more people in jail with mental illnesses than there are in mental institutions

the list goes on

  • the War on Drugs is a failure, its a war on its own people. policies need to be changed we pay billions in taxpayers money to keep the war going and neither side is winning thats just a waste of our tax money I wonder what they do with all that money.. those greedy bastards just sell drugs back onto the street, you can even check urself on that there was a time when there was a cia operation transporting drugs overseas into america the government also provided Rick Ross with plenty of heroin to go around, course making money from it

the truth must be exposed, theyre dirty work must stop!

-Of course we can do something about it, we all just need to unite screw the federal government remember slavery? if no one stood up im pretty sure it would still be going on people were tortured, beaten, killed and thrown in jail but that didnt stop them standing up for their rights eventually slavery was abolished same with alcohol prohibition eventually became re-legalized

  • its like theres some kind of conspiracy going on I sense the government is up to no good and trying to control us. credit cards, money, and now they have chips that can be implanted in skin for uselful reasons but if in the wrong hands well were pretty much fuct they hiding the truth from us its dangerous to be right when the government is wrong they got theyre privacy but we dont. they want to know everything were doing on our leisure time

get up stand up!

  • marijuanas not anti-establishment because its illegal, its illegal because its anti-establishment

all facts stated have been double-checked and confirmed want to learn more?

lets all make this a better place to live in!
