Its is clear by the links that there is a concern that cannabis causes mental health problems ..see links again.
Even Portugeuse authorities think so.
No matter how much you deny it there is evidence for it.
We are going round in circles I provide links that show there is concern and you deny it.
The last sentence did not refer to you.
BBC NEWS | Health | Cannabis link to depression
Do you seriously expect you writing bull**** to be a more compelling agument than this post .
Pot can make you delusional
"REGRETTABLE NECESSITY, n. An avoidable atrocity. The term is often employed by presidents and prime ministers when announcing bombings of civilian targets and invasions of small countries."
This comment by PROFFESOR Joseph Rey.
Could and should carry more weight than life time of posts by tokers and lets make drug legal posters
In an accompanying editorial Joseph Rey, professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of Sydney, said the studies backed up previous research.
"These findings strengthen the argument that use of cannabis increases the risk of schizophrenia and depression."
But he added that further research is needed.
"Whether the use of cannabis triggers the onset of schizophrenia or depression in otherwise vulnerable people or whether it actually causes these conditions in non-predisposed people is not yet resolved
Further research is needed BEFORE cannabis should be considered to be legalised not after.
I would not be willing to run the risk of causing many people mental health prolems just because tokers cannot be convinced that the poison that they take is not toxic.

Schadenfreude ist die schönste Freude.
Now, as to "ODing" on weed I've never made that suggestion. My suggestion is that its ridiculous to say water is MORE dangerous because of that fact.
For one, your body needs water. This is an item necessary for life to exist. You can not survive without having water of some kind on a relatively regular basis. This is not the case for marijuana. So to start off water has a large positive, one Marijuana will never and can never touch....it physically helps keep you alive. Marijuana is a non-essential thing you add into your body.
While mild compared to Alcohol and some hard drug withdrawls, there is still withdrawl symptoms associated with Marijuana. There is legitimately studied memory issues in the short term associated with Marijuana and some studies suggest long term potential damage. There is evidence of it impariing coordination and critical thinking, both of which would be determinental when ones is driving. While not physically addictive, there is legitimate studied and anecdotal evidence of it being psychologically addictive. While not the cause of the manifestation of various mental medical issues, there is evidence to suggest that it may act as an excellerant or trigger for such things if already present with the individual.
I'm sorry, but all of that fully and completely trumps the potential dangers of simply drinking water.
If you want to talk about the dangers of contaminated water, fine, but then you have to talk about marijuana laced with other substances as well.
If you want to talk about water intoxication (the overdosing you're talking about) then you're generally talking about water consumption PLUS another action....either a contest causing one to drink extremely unusually large amounts and stop bodily functions from occuring or extremely strenuous sports activity done in an unsafe manner is typically the cause...which in that case you need to talk about smoking pot PLUS driving and other such "Pot + something else" situations.
No, you can take your stereotypical pathetic "pothead hippy rhetoric" elsewhere, because as I said previously, those kind of ridiculous arguments are part of the reason why pot is not likely to be legalized within the next decade. You are the pot movements equivilent to 9/11 truthers or Obama Birthers, you are so deluded in your arguments and so exaggerated in your debate that you embarress those that agree with you causing them to have to argue against you while simultaneously causing the entire movement to look like you and the rest of those in the extreme wing of it to those members of the public that are in the middle and are the key group to either getting it legalized or not.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
