    And I would rather you prove that it's somehow different.

    But, if it makes you feel better about your chosen drug habit to pretend that your drug of choice is somehow 'better' than someone elses, so be it. Whatever makes you feel good about yourself. /shrug

    I'd rather keep out of your business over drinking wine, and you can stay out of my business over smoking some weed.

    Why would we do that? Everyone knows alcohol is by far worse.

    Alcohol causes cirrosis. Smoking pot damages the lungs.

    I think the challenge comes when discussing the mind, not the brain. Alcohol kills brain cells. It is well known. Smoking pot also probably kills brain cells. Bt with the mind, both alcohol and pot cause an altered state of mind, but in different ways. The claim is that pot triggers mental disorders. I would note that this is not the same as saying pot causes the disorder, it merely triggers a pre-existing disorder, one that would have probably occurred regardless. I am skeptical of those claims.

    People who consume cannibis aren't my problem as long as they aren't driving a car or engaged in other activities that can harm others if not done correctly.

    Just like drinking alcohol.

    Actually in the car is one of the primary places that cannabis is smoked and it causes a negligible amount of accidents compared to alcohol use.

    Why is it stupid? The only time I smoke is in the privacy of my own home. Sure, there are negative health effects associated with usage but that's just part of life.

    I don't think I answered this post...

    I am and I no longer smoke pot. My meds work really well and I haven't had a depressive or manic episode in those 3 years. Of course, my pot smoking was merely addressing the symptoms and not the disease. Please empathize with those with this disease who are untreated, or who have the wrong medications. It is a seriously debilitative disease. I came very close to successful suicide. Being in depression is the darkest hell.

    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 believe I have seen research quoted on it, but it is of the kind that a higher percentage of pot smokers ended up with depression, bipolar and schizophrenia. I justt think that these people are experiencing symptoms and are more likely to self-medicate. I do not believe that pot use triggers the disease.

    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 too believe that exercise and nutrition help the health of the mind-body. However, with many natural substances (pot and psilocyban) I do not believe they lead to an imbalance. The body and the mind is ALWAYS balanced.

    I feel that tampering with our neuron synapses just for fun is asking for trouble down the road.
    I disagree.

    Come on, this is not complex stuff. You have to be completely oblivious to not realize that yes there are differences between alcohol and marijuana.

    Appeal to legality. We are talking morality here, so we can change the inane law.
