ANSWER #1 of 21

Some to escape reality and/or responsibilities - I'm not aware of any of the 'finest' people I know do drugs.


ANSWER #2 of 21

Lack of self control, uncontentment, escapism or to avoid feeling feelings, unable to cope with life on life's terms, trying to fit in or please others, therapy, ceremonial purposes. Using for fun is a lie that people tell themselves, there is always an underlying issue. The first recorded writings on the use of marijuana come from Plato who described a tribe of people who would pile hot stones into a tepee adding marijuana to the pile of stones to smolder and burn, they would do this at the wake of a dead warrior in order to get into the right frame of mind to honor him (Greek Vapor Bath). The next phase in it's use was for purposes of brainwashing people to do others biddings, many opiates were used to train assassins to be ready to give there lives for promises of heavenly delights that waited them like 70 virgins and such (Arabian nights). And finally to the early Jazz scene in America when it was used to loosen inhibitions so people could "Have fun". So like I said earlier if someone is using the excuse that it's just fun then they're just admitting they have some sort of social disorder which prohibits them from having fun sober.

Dont know if I cna ask here ...about drugs

ANSWER #3 of 21

I have met many people in my life who do drugs, ranging from 13 to 50 years old. Not all of them are the same although they may use the same type of drug.
I myself am an Addict and it’s not something anyone should want to be. You make either two choices; you quit and work hard to stay clean. Or you use and forget you even tried to.
I was once like the people posting saying all drug users are losers and I had no respect to them. But now I understand don’t judge what you don’t know. It makes some people feel better about themselves to point down on others because they believe they are more of a descent human being.
But anyways I am addicted to XTC and Alcohol. Been out of Rehab for 6 months and off my drugs of choice. I now smoke Marijuana for medical purposes, not prescribed but I know the benefits of it and I do not abuse it. Marijuana, like previously said is not Physically addictive it is more of a mental addiction.
It is a drug, and still has negative effects of course.

I’m on a variety of medications but since I lost my insurance I have turned into the person I use to be when using XTC and drinking daily. In order for me to remain sane I smoke weed every other day or when im having anxiety or urges to go find the dope man. Without my medicine or weed I get really violent, depressed, and all the good qualities I carry are missing. Not the outstanding neighbor type by any means but I try to be a good person.

Just tired of those thinking all people are low-life’s who smoke weed. Some people just have issues and are confused about there life, and may have taken the wrong road. It’s not your life to make comments on, so think before you open your mouth. your comments just add fuel to the fire.

Someday, maybe not in my lifetime marijuana will be legalized and your children or children’s children will be smoking Marijuana.

drug addiction
ANSWER #4 of 21

It is classified as an class A 1 controlled substance, which is something that is physically and mentally addictive. This is true of both marijuana and cocaine. Although since it's classification marijuana has been proven to not be physically addictive so it should be reclassified to the level of alcohol. They had made it illegal originally because they didn't understand it and thought that it made you crazy and like Brownangel said it was an antisocial drug that made you do things like rape people. They did not make either illegal because of race. Cocaine used to be an additive in Coca Cola until they took it out because of the physically addictive side effects, yet caffeine is physically addictive as well go figure. But cocaine unlike caffeine loosens inhibitions leading to crime and other negative social aspects. You may use any excuse you want to smoke weed or any other controlled substance, like to relax. But the bottom line is that that excuse is a lie and a justification. If you think about it, any healthy person can relax without having to smoke weed. Like I said in my earlier post people can make any excuse they want but there is always an underlying social or mental disorder that causes them to abuse a drug. And if you actually study the history of drugs you will see that they were not made illegal because of race, even if you google it perhaps they used the stamp farce in order to round up illegal immigrants but it is not why they had made it illegal. I think that most of these posts have made me dumber for just having read them.

Drugs Possession
ANSWER #11 of 21

drugs are beneficial to the human mind spiritually
and have been used for many years
cannabis however I dont consider a drug
has been on this earth since its existence
and been used medicinally for thousands of years

lol dont listen to what people tell u, its all misleading information
you need to do your own research and see for urself

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

re-legalize!

-I did most of my research through websites, books, magazines, and the news
norml.org
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

ANSWER #14 of 21

lovejohncena13; I hope you are aware you just said "PEOPLE IS STUPID"

you're not saying to much for yourself budd


ANSWER #15 of 21

I have to say I agree with 90% of what brownangel007 has said


ANSWER #16 of 21

cause people are stupid and lame and they can't have fun without having some chemical inducing it.


ANSWER #17 of 21

I personally use cannabis for the experience and the effect, not to "look cool". It has no impact on my personal life because I have self control and I know I am handling a controlled substance. Not being a daily or heavy user, my tolerance has not increased and I am still using as much as I did on my first try. I can't wait 'til someone shouts "DENIAL!" :)

Many people use drugs for different reasons and self knowledge is always required.


ANSWER #18 of 21

PEOPLE IS STUPID


ANSWER #19 of 21

Okay People.
We've all been through different experiences. Some of us have had relatively 'good' lives while others, not so much. I see it as its just a choice people make. Some just out of curiousity, others a way to cope from reality, peer pressure from kids, ect, you've heard all the reasons. But it's definetly not because someone is dumb or stupid. There's no difference between someone who does drugs, smokes cigarrettes, or drinks alcohol. Don't try to tell me that even half of you have never picked up a cigarette or drank alcohol, nobodies perfect, so get over yourself.
