    That is not my experience.
    The more you smoke the more it takes you to get high is the norm to me.
    40 years ago I guess the stuff you smoked was not as strong as the high thc skunk that you get nowdays.
    You may smoke a good few spliffs for many years and have no ill effects.
    Some people had smoked 30 cigarettes a day since they were 14 years old and live to be old but many didnt. Smoking in Europe has been banned inside public buildings because of the people who were crippled and died through smoking not the ones that it had little effect on.

    Im not referring to the extremely low tar ones but the middling ones that give you a buzz but are not just fresh air.
    People who smoke high tar cigarettes do not generally smoke significantly less of them than people who smoke middle tar ones..hence the danger.
    I have no reason to believe that someone will only smoke half a spliff because it is very strong nor would they put less bud in the joint.
    using cigarettes as an example, couldn't we sell both low and high potency weed? people could choose which potency they wanted. like you said, people will smoke as much as they want to smoke. if they don't want to get wasted, why would they not put less weed in the joint? this seems like a pretty logical thing to do. on the other hand, if they do want to get wasted, why would they not put more weed in the joint? it's like when people decide "i want to get drunk tonight," they will either drink a certain volume of liquor or a greater volume of beer so that they get the same amount of alcohol. likewise, people decide "i don't want to get wasted tonight," so they will drink a beer instead of taking shots. people can control how intoxicated they get on their own.

    Nonsense. You can't get schizophrenic from smoking marijuana. It alleviates depression. What the **** is mentally crippling?

    If you want to do yourself harm then do it but jump off a cliff dont perpetuate a dangerous drug which can harm others.
    My smoking marijuana doesn't harm others.

    This same guff was spouted by tobacco smokers 40 years ago.
    It seems that they were wrong, children have been made sick by secondary smoke and mothers and fathers have died after many years of smoking.
    Tell it to your kids when your in the padded cell.
    You are not making any sense. Do you need to watch "reefer madness" again and get your "facts" straight?

    It's certainly a plan.It would give people the choice.
    I have it in my mind to suggest that there should be an age limit to buy the strong stuff but for reasons expressed by you and others I cant see that working.
    If cannabis resin was legal maybe we would get the bits of plastic in it that you find sometimes.

    Pot smokers, attention. Let's overgrow the United States.

    Everybody take their left over pot seeds and spread them around this spring.

    We could overgrow the country with pot plants.

    It alleviates depression is about the dumbest thing that I have seen today, congratulations.
    Mentally crippling is having the potential to make you so mentally ill that you are crippled, couldnt you work that out for yourself?

    Its pretty well documented that cannabis can exacerbate mental illness .
    Reefer madness has got nothing to do with it.
    Apparently you seem so stupid that you cannot see the risk you are taking.
    Idiots who claim that there is no danger at all in taking a drug..no matter what drug it is are inherently stupid and cannot make their own decisions.
    You belong in that category of idiot.

    I really can't disagree with you on this. I have often commented on how Pot affects everyone differently. some it makes mellow and relaxed. Others like my self, it is almost like speed, or mild acid. It give me energy and makes my senses tingle. I have done my very best projects under it's influence. ---but it does affect us differently.--I have friends who smoke like trains, but get no higher.---On the cig thing--my theory is, that it is the 20 sheets of paper per pack that people smoke, that does the most harm, not the tobacco. That is a lot of paper to inhale, that is treated with all kinds of chemicals, to control the burn. I prefer a pipe, or a good cigar.

    Where is this documentation you speak of?

    In my situation, I was mentally ill before smoking pot. Smoking pot alleviates my symptoms. I was able to get a degree in Physics while smoking pot regularly. It was not crippling - actually the opposite. It helped me learn some of the bizarre world of Physics. It helped me visualize the quantum world. It has no long term debilitative effects. The only danger has nothing to do with thc - it only has to do with the act of smoking it.

    If smoking pot has alleviated your mental illness then good for you.
    For some it has the opposite effect.
