    Truthfully alcohol is bad to but its legal...No need to add another poison to the mix.

    Drugs can be bad and they can be good. Similar to caffeine studies, there is varying data on the long term affects. For some people, caffeine is detrimental to their memory while to others it is helpful. On the flip, I have never heard of anyone drinking alcohol cause it can give them a positive affect. But I did find a list of possible negatives that vary from group to group and cannot be directly traced to THC consumption,


    "Smoking one or more joints a day during a year or longer is considered long-term use. However, this varies from researcher to researcher.

    The health risks of this long-term use are:

    In some cases high quantity users can experience feelings of anxiety, depression and be seriously unwell.
    Cannabis influences driving ability.
    Smoking cannabis causes carcinogens to enter the body.
    During pregnancy, cannabis can have negative consequences for the fetus.
    Long-term use of cannabis may affect thinking, emotions and feelings.
    In some cases, long-term use of cannabis can lead to dependence and abuse.
    Cannabis can provoke a psychosis in people who are sensitive to it. More.
    Some researchers are of the opinion that:
    Cannabis is a first step to the use of hard drugs.
    Cannabis has negative effects on the immune system.
    Cannabis influences fertility.
    Cannabis causes schizophrenia.
    Cannabis leads to apathy and loss of interest.
    Cannabis can cause anger, especially when trying to stop using Cananabis.

    However, there is no proof for these statements."

    IMO, these negatives are much less than those of alcohol except for the possibility of it being a gate way drug. But then again most other drugs do very nasty things to the body and I personally would never even consider them. But the reality is, Marijuana is the lesser of Tobacco and Alcohol.

    I've already posted in this thread.

    I'm clueless? You know nothing about marijuana except that it's illegal. And that's the only reason you don't want it legalized. Not because of the effects, not because of the possible side effects, but because it would require change.
    You're the clueless one. Whenever someone prevents facts and and logic that goes against your way of thinking, your criticize it as 'biased and unfair".

    Before you go around and call other members clueless, I suggest you look in the mirror.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    The obvious moral reasons why marijuana should not be against the law aside... prohibition accomplishes not a single beneficial goal for society. Even if someone could make the argument that the very act of smoking and getting high is detrimental to society (hint: you can't), prohibition doesn't accomplish that. It doesn't even appear to be making a dent. It's just increasing crime, bringing strife to poorer neighborhoods, massively skewing the priorities of police, shredding the fourth amendment... I cannot think of a single benefit brought to the table by the illegality of marijuana, and certainly nothing to outweigh the detriments.

    I agree. And whether the poll reflects the attitude of the general populace or not, it's pretty clear that the results of a referendum would favour decriminalisation. Of course we'll never be granted one. The swines have too much to lose.

    Quite the contrary, they have too much to gain. Just think about how much money our government would save and then earn in taxes. It is scary to think of all that money

    I don't smoke it. I still want it legalised.

    There's no sense in prohibiting it. It's a totally bizarre situation, with no plus side.
