    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Doesn't cannabis destroy brain cells?

    Doesn't over use of Tylenol lead to liver problems...

    You do realise we aren't the smartest species on this planet. If anything, we are by far the dumbest. We know whats good for us, yet we don't do it.

    A study recently published found that the drug by far most harmful to Society was alcohol. You simply cannot refute that. I don't see weed causing broken families, I don't see weed causing a husband to beat his wife and children.

    Now granted weed can have negative effects, I have felt some of them. But don't start waving the effects in peoples faces and saying "HEY LOOK ITS BAD FOR YOU!" Who the **** cares whats bad for us? Certainly not as bad for you as a ****ing Triple Whopper I'll tell you that.

    Could you post a link to that study? I'd be interested in looking that over.

    Proposition 19 to legalize marijuana defeated | abc7.com


    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- One of the most controversial measures on Tuesday's ballot is Proposition 19, the initiative to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in California. It was sure to be challenged, even if voters approved it. Some lawmakers had already been preparing to tax cannabis sales. The measure was defeated Tuesday night.

    The Associated Press called the measure defeated at 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.
    I would like to see pot legalized, but whenever California doesn't get what it wants, that's usually a good thing for everyone else, so yay!

    There is no conclusive evidence that suggests pot destroys brain cells, if you smoke it to get it in your system it may but If you eat it it wouldn't as far as I know. Believe it or not there are studies that have show Marijuana to help develop new brain cell growth in mice..

    My uncle was a pothead. He has hardly any memory. I suspect a correlation.

    Well people usually smoke it. I'm unsure about the eating part b/c of it entering the systemic system and then passing the blood-brain barrier and thus affecting the hypothalamus...

    I certainly don't think cannabis improves intellect. There is nothing material that one can consume that can increas IQ. Memory, focus, concentration, mental stimulation/bloodflow... yes. But raw intellect? No. If so there would be far more interest in researching cannabis in the development of an actual IQ increaser. If cannabis was truly so effective at that, people would be flying to research, produce, buy, and use to improve their studies.
