I'll tell you why, because they're f***ing idiots who want to look cool, uneducated fools who don't realise the consequences of what they're doing. They're totally wrong if they think that it's a good thing to do which makes you look cool. What's cool about destroying your senses? Destroying your mind? I'd think the opposite if I saw anyone smoking it, and would stay right away from them.

Glad to hear that you're not gonna touch it though, great choice mate!

Smoking weed now a days is like smoking a cigrette..A lot of kids do it too see what it's like..they wanna see what happens or they see older kids doing it and they wanna follow..usually they have an influence from somewhere..same with anything..if you were born away from a place that had any such talking and seeing of weed..then that kid would never even know about it and wouldn't become curious about it

I don't see anything wrong with weed. I do not do it myself, as i do not like the way it makes me feel. But my husband will have it now and again. I don't mind as long as he does not smoke in the house!
If you are really concerned about your fiends all you can do is advice them, but don't go to heavy as they may not appreciate it!
Hope all goes well for you. Good luck

If ur freinds are smoking on a regular basis, alarm sirenes should start buzzing in your head rigth now! But if they have tried it sometimes and are not bragging away saying how good it is and wants to try it again, then lax. Their prob. just experimenting, and if they don't get cougth up in it they'll be fine.

heres some lyrics of dr. dre's from an NWA song called express your self.

Some drop science while im dropping english
even if yella(nwa DJ) makes it acapella
I still express yo I don't smoke weed or cess
cause it's gonna give a brother brain damage
and brain damage on the mike don't manage
nothing but making a sucker and you equal
don't be another sequal express your self

See dre was making phat beats and all that with yella and easy e and ice cube who were all dope heads. Did he give up his ideals for peer pressure? Did he stop hanging out with them? nope he just stuck to his word and did his thing.

What's wrong with smoking weed? If you want to do it, then you should be able to without people b****ing at you about it. They're not making the choice - you are. As for people doing it being stupid, I see drinking a lot worse than smoking weed, getting drunk being much worse and much more stupid than getting high. However, I don't call those people who get drunk stupid or talk down to them because they do get drunk. We all make our own desicions - why b**** at someone for doing their own thing?

I am not sure where to start so i'll just jump in. I am amazed at some of the responses here on this issue of pot. Ok, first of all and MOST importantly: NO ONE HAS EVER DIED FROM INJESTING TOO MUCH WEED--- no one. Can we even say that about the legal drug alcohol? Come on.
Next, if you, an individual, doesn't like it- cool. Don't use it. I think it really sucks when people have such issues with something, anything, simply because they may not like the thing they're so against.

Get informed--- talk to people who use it often. You'll see the truth- NOT what "the world" wants you to see.

Someone here said that those who use pot are "trying to fill a void". Not hardly. It's like anything else, we ALL have ways to relax... lots and LOTS of people choose marijuana.
A "few extra dangers" was said here. Care to share those with us all? I am not sure it's any worse than cigs. There are studies about brain cell loss etc -- you'd have to smoke LOTS of weed for YEARS & YEARS to have that type damage. Look at all the crap alcohol does for ya- liver damage for instance, and as a nurse i have taken care of many people suffering with illnesses related to excessive alcohol intake. It isn't pretty and so sad for them and their family. What i have witnessed in my job is cancer patients who can eat again, gaining weight & strength and cancer patients who can make it through the day without vomiting every little while- yep, all due to marijuana.
Someone had the nerve to say that pot smokers are "f***ing idiots who want to look cool". Too funny! I might agree with u if we're talking about young teens or something. Sorry hun, but it doesn't make you "look" any kind of way- only makes you feel relaxed (stoned).
"Uneducated" was used here to describe weed users too. I am a professional and come in contact with Doctors, Attorneys and Nurses daily. Let me tell you this: lots of people would be damn surprised to know that their Doctor or Lawyer enjoys a toke or two after a day at work. If i chose to, there is even an Attorney here in town that i could buy weed from.
I am in no way trying to change your mind about weed. What i am doing is setting the record straight. Do some research; don't choose sides (i suppose that works) until you're truthfully infomed. You're "not that stupid" was stated here in reference to smoking weed; thank you, no i'm not.


Peace

I don't have a problem with weed specifically. It's like anything else.. alcohol, tobacco, sudafed, sex, whatever... it's what you do with it that matters. If you turn into a junkie, or you let the stuff impact your life negatively, that's bad. If you use it to mellow you out every now and then and use it responsibly, that's fine.

Don't automatically comdemn them... and to you people assigning specific psychological motives, get off your horse. You don't know any of these people at all.

I concur completely.

And again, it is the person's choice. Why are people so gung-ho to try to stop people from making their own decisions if there are much worse legal drugs out there?

All very important points now take it from someone who abused the drug. Cannabis is as dangerous to your health as cigerettes and as damaging as a class A drug. I suffer from regular bouts of paranoia that have destroyed relationships with friends and family. I have a heart and lung issue they have put down to smoking too much weed. f*** making this drug a class C make it a class A. If you know people who are dealing, do the world a favour and report them to the police. This drug is wrecking lives and people dont realise it!

Wow, for a mother that is a SHOCKING statement. You should be setting a good example and so should their father. SMOKING POT IS ILLEGAL!!! Does anyone not realise that, your children could end up in foster homes if someone sees you as unfit parents.

For someone who likes to protect her kids you should think about your husbands actions, inside your home and out. If someone is a drunk but does it outside the house is that right? What about if they sleep around but its not in your home? What kind of values are those?

Here's a tip. People have addiction, love, sex, drugs, alchohol....they are all destructive. I know people who have spend YEARS in prison due to one or two times being high. Maybe not to everyone but THATS WHAT HAPPENS....ITS ILLEGAL. I know many "professionals" who say its a relaxer or even just for fun, well they need other avenues, ones that dont destroy your body and morals. Come one people, its your choice but its not a smart one.
