Effects on Daily Life
Research clearly demonstrates that marijuana has the potential to cause problems in daily life or make a person’s existing problems worse. In one study, heavy marijuana abusers reported that the drug impaired several important measures of life achievement including physical and mental health, cognitive abilities, social life, and career status.11 Several studies associate workers’ marijuana smoking with increased absences, tardiness, accidents, workers’ compensation claims, and job turnover."
there are your economic losses and your social losses,
Use your brain, you think a drug addict interacts normally? that they can preform the same kind of productivity as their non-smoking counterparts?
and though it made me laugh, your moronic argument that a a lima beam hasnt really advanced the human race isn't relevant to what i ment in context. the point is that A lima bean hasnt HURT us.
Sure people abuse prescription drugs, But is that a good thing??? you made that point as to justify the abuse of Marijuana and other drugs. My aunt abbused prescription drugs and she is ****ed up now, My dad was on some heavy drugs including Marijuana and killed himself. My grandpa who was a symphony violinist, ruined his life with alcohol addiction.
something tells me these cases are not isolated incidents...
Is that enough proof for you? want me to tell you the social impact that has had on my life and my family around me not to have my dad in my life?
there is the social impact for you, and as for the moral impact, i guess that is more of a personal belief your right.
here is a statistic..
There have been over 7,000 published scientific and medical studies documenting the damage that marijuana poses. Not one study has shown marijuana to be safe.
