Does weed seriously make you stupid??? If so, then how long does it take to make stupid???
lol this is just a myth weed has opened my mind and made me smarter psychologically it helps regulate everything in your body
These are some of the comments I have copied from a forum
-pharmaceuticals are known to kill more people than illegal drugs
-marijuana is the number 1 cash crop in the world it serves as a natural medicine and has many other uses thats why they prohibited it so big companies can make more profit thanks to "bad journalism"
-can also help aids patients, aids diminishes appetite have them smoke a joint and they regain their appetite counteracting the illness
-no one can die from smoking cannabis and has been no known deaths compared to everything else including alcohol, tobacco, etc..
I myself have asthma and smoking opens up my airways making it easier to breathe with no side effects when medically legalized in my state I look foward to becoming a patient for prescription marijuana. 12 states have already legalized it along with other countries in the world and more following my job is to educate people that are not aware of the plants uses
-I did most of my research through websites, books, magazines, and the news norml.org high times magazine etc..
-God bless the whole crop!
-all the better reason for the government to legalize.. couple reasons why it should be legalized: -will be removed from black market and stop empowering gang members -medical reasons -would be sold like alcohol, remember alcohol was once prohibited too (in stores away from children, have to be 21+) -would be a law that you cant drive while intoxicated on weed -prison population would lower (prisons are overcrowding with nonviolent offenders) -keep patients from being convicted -would provide millions of jobs for people -would make us an independent country (fuel, etc.., debt free america)
people with an addiction (including hard drugs) shouldnt be thrown in jail, they need help theres more people in jail with mental illnesses than there are in mental institutions
the list goes on
the truth must be exposed, theyre dirty work must stop!
-Of course we can do something about it, we all just need to unite screw the federal government remember slavery? if no one stood up im pretty sure it would still be going on people were tortured, beaten, killed and thrown in jail but that didnt stop them standing up for their rights eventually slavery was abolished same with alcohol prohibition eventually became re-legalized
get up stand up!
all facts stated have been double-checked and confirmed what more info? norml.org hightimes.com americandrugwar.org flexyourrights.org lets all make this a better place to live in!
Can definitely have a negative effect on response time, caring, and ambition - some info - Marijuana can certainly be both emotionally and mentally addictive. Once an individual becomes addicted to marijuana it develops into part of who they believe themselves to be. Avoiding their friends who do not use, the addict will gravitate to others that do. Marijuana is a topic that is always on their mind, whether it be thinking about the next time they will be able to get high or where their going to get their next sack. When someone is addicted to marijuana eventually their friends and the people close to them only know how they act when their stoned because they no longer do anything without first smoking. Their constant abuse is due to the misconception that marijuana is what they need to solve their problems. Sometimes addicts will take their stash with them wherever they go, just in case an opportunity arises and they are able to take a couple hits. They may even go through several dealers in order to make sure they always have a constant supply of marijuana - For assistance Call 1-800-405-8409: http://WWW.marijuanaaddiction.info/
Marijuana and Mental Health... A number of studies have shown an association between chronic marijuana use and increased rates of anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and schizophrenia. Some of these studies have shown age at first use to be a factor, where early use is a marker of vulnerability to later problems. However, at this time, it not clear whether marijuana use causes mental problems, exacerbates them, or is used in attempt to self-medicate symptoms already in existence. Chronic marijuana use, especially in a very young person, may also be a marker of risk for mental illnesses, including addiction, stemming from genetic or environmental vulnerabilities, such as early exposure to stress or violence. At the present time, the strongest evidence links marijuana use and schizophrenia and/or related disorders6. High doses of marijuana can produce an acute psychotic reaction, and research suggests that in vulnerable individuals, marijuana use may be a factor that increases risk for the disease.
It starts with the first time you smoke it
Well it all depends actually, I know a good friend of mine that has been smoking weed for a good straight out of 12 years now... normally he smokes up to 8 -9 large blunts a day... and she is still doing absolutely fine.. it depends on your metabolism I guess, some people wear off the drug in an hour and some in 3-4 hours... also depends if it pure weed or chemically grown, just remember that the chemicals also play a huge role on the central nervous system, which might cause anxiety in later stages... so yeah either way, smoking weed is bad for you.. but they do use it as a health medicine in making tea of it which has good effects of blood pressure problems and other stuff too so rather make a tea out of it then
It TEMPORARILY alters the brain. There has been no concrete physical connection between marijuana and loss of brain cells.
I know people who have smoked it for almost their whole life, and they are just as sharp as they were years and years ago. I ALSO know people who have smoked it, and they have changed as a person. Although.. in those cases there were usually other causes such as drinking, and other substances that, when abused AND smoking weed caused them to change dramatically..
It's not chemically addictive, but it IS habit forming.
To most people it seems like weed could control their actions and cloud their thoughts (therefore possibly making someone stupid). But for some that could control their high, weed could be something more than a recreational drug. It could be therapeutic and open channels in the brain/mind. Some people could think better and make better judgments. Weed could also enhance certain activities like, watching movies, listening to music, having sex, taking midterms/final, and writing this response.
you just kinda lose it 4 a second && dats it.
...didn't inhale perhaps?
It doesn't make you stupid. The only connection between cannabis and stupidity, lies with the addicts/abusers, but they were stupid to begin with.
(This is a response to the person questioning my resources)
I didnt say that It affects everyone, but I do know people who smoke and it has changed them
