People who smoke pot are no worse than people who drink.

Pot affect people differently. Some people I know have loved it at first toke and some people will freak out on it.
I knew a young lady about twenty who was raised a straight catholic girl and never did drugs in her life and did not even drink or smoke.
She married this guy who turned out to be Mr goodbar. He was into s&m and forced her to smoke pot on their honeymoon. The honeymoon was short lived and I think the girl's dad took care of the perv.
She would have freaked without the pot but it made it harder for her to cope with it.
No, it's not entirely a bad thing. CaptainCourtesy pointed out that it is the impairment which is the attraction of getting high. My assertion is that getting high and thus being impaired is not entirely a bad thing. I am a strong proponent of experiencing altered mental states, as long as you stay reasonably safe. Pot, psilocyban are both in the category.don't get me wrong, i don't believe it's any more harmful than alcohol, but really, impairment isn't a bad thing?
In the end, if you have to drink, snort, ingest or inject something into your body to make you feel good about yourself, there's something seriously wrong with you.
Yet, didn't you mention in another thread that you are on some serious psychotrophic medications?
I strongly believe, and there is evidence to back me up, that users of mind altering substances such as pot and hallucinogens, triggers brain imbalances leading to bipolar and schizophrenia.
I feel that the holistic lifestyle of exercise and nutrition contributes to balance, physically and psychologically. Altering brain chemicals through substances, on the other hand, can only lead to imbalance and disruption of the delicate chemical signals that our brains rely on.
I feel that tampering with our neuron synapses just for fun is asking for trouble down the road.
