I don't know who these crazy people are you say talk bad about weed. They are probably people who either have never tried weed or have tried before but didn't like it. Which is either bc they got some bs. Which is understandable. ILL talk s*** all day about reggie. Or bc they felt bad side effects. Which i guess if u r a person who does not know how to distinguish reality then smoking weed could freak you out bad. Weed is not a halluconegenic herb. It can make u feel a little paranoid i suppose but more like extra aware of the things going on around you. Anyone who talks about feeling panicky and walls closing in and heart exploding feelings that is all in your head. Weed can make your heart beat faster and it makes you very perseptive to this . Inexperienced smokers feel can feel that their heart is going to explode or theres sumthin wrong with them or whtevea. Which is funny bc if anything weed can fix whats wrong with u. It is an amazing medicinal herb. stomaches, cramps, hangover, back pain , and a million other things.
As far as weed making you dumber.... Weeds main setback is loss of short term memory. Which I dont kno if u call not remembering that episode of family guy a setback. Tivo baby. Marijuana produces immediate yet temporary changes in thoughts, perceptions, and information processing. Marijiuana users have no trouble remembering things they learned previously. There is only a decreased capacity to learn and recall new information. This only lasts as long as your high. Which is why I don't smoke weed than try to read the goddaamn encyclopedia.
People are responsible for their selves. Unless yu have a brain transplant or your possessed by emily rose or sumthin you control your self and your actions. You can choose to abuse anything but you are choosing. Just like an achololic abuses and f***s things up. But there r ppl that can have a cocktail at a christamas party ordrink some beers on the weekend. or drink a 100 beers on the weekedn. just show up 2 work on monday like u got your s*** together. its called balance.
Weed definitly needs to be legalized. The only bad point i see with weed being legalized and monitored is that yall know how the govt. is theyll bust evrybodys heads.....
