    You are quite intelligent. What is debatable is whether you would be even more intelligent if you did not smoke pot.

    I do understand why you are a libertarian now though.

    He has to be on something. There is no way anybody can make that many incoherent points and yet somehow manage to make sense. Well there is Monk-Eye. But I haven't seen him in a while.

    Well, how do you quantify intelligence? Test scores? Writing ability? Abstract reasoning? Why am I able to write and read with more lucidity when high?

    I do understand why you are a libertarian now though.

    I think the only people who actually understand Mikeey's posts are DP veterans. He uses a special language that only we can understand...

Luckily, they both found pot to be helpful. There will be time later for them to find the better method for whatever ails them.

    Of course these are anecdotal as well. And, if true, are still examples of exceptions to the rule.
    Chances are, what that means is that both of those folks were suffering from some sort of ailment that would/could have been managed in other ways.

    Marijuana affects everyone differently. I smoke it occasionally because its effects on me closely match those described by Sagan. I think the problem with marijuana is that, like many illicit drugs, it attracts those who are unable to cope with sobriety. Those that easily cope with sobriety are less likely to use drugs and are, generally speaking, more successful.

    It's the whole correlation does not equal causation thing. Stoners and potheads have a reputation for being pretty stupid, but is weed the underlying cause? Or did they simply not learn tap the potential of their minds, instead relying on a drug? Certainly weed has the potential to exarcerbate stupidity and ignorance; if you become hyperfocused while high and focus that energy intently on Seinfield reruns, you won't expand your mind.

    However, when I become hyperfocused while high, I do hours of research. I attribute my deeper understanding of mathematics and physics to insight gained while high, a perspective I may not otherwise have achieved.

    I think weed, like alcohol, can destroy the full capabilities of your mind. But, depending on how its used, I believe it can inspire new ways of thinking which may stimulate otherwise unused neurons. Until we allow actual research into its true nature, we'll have to discover its risks and benefits on a personal level.
    1) It is unknown that if someone achieves when the use weed if they would not achieve MORE if they did not. Therefore, your assessment could be backwards.

    2) If someone is more focused when the use weed, it probably means that they are suffering from ADD or some other psychological disorder. I've seen this TONS of times. There are other solutions to these issues.

    3) From the research I've read, other than the smoking part of it, occasional marijuana use probably ranks with occasional alcohol use in the realm of danger... more or less. Consistent marijuana use? Absolutely dangerous with lots of negative effects.
