[QUOTE="jdc6305"]

I started smoking weed when I was 14 I quit when I was 21. Everytime I smoke I get super paranoid. I was a heavy smoker I smoked 10 or more joints a day for years. I ended up in a psychosis from heavy use. I've gained a new appreciation for reality. I not one for telling other people what they can or can't do. Personally I hate drug addicts.

You probably were paranoid because you were doing something illegal.

 

Ignorance is bliss. No it also caused myself to suffer from severe anxiety for a period. Like **** and Alcohol it has negative side effects and does effect the brain. I believe this can be more severe in some people than others i also believe the effects mostly go by unknown by the user and then bang suddenly you have a major issue. Would be coolo if the laws in the UK in my case were relaxed but people just do things in excess no matter what! Legal or illegal! Generally it would be better legailised just no smoking in Public and some kind of control on the amount a user can have per month!

So, because it affected you negatively, you are willing to put down arbitrary restrictions that do nothing?

Why should there be any kind of limit, and what do you honestly think that would accomplish?

There should be a Leonhart prohibition. Listening to her made me stupid.

It's definitely more relaxed than it used to be. Hell, my work doesn't have drug tests because every single employee and both owners do it. You can even buy it from half the people.

Do people still get thrown into jail for weed possession? Or just some community services? Does it hold on your record permanently?

Here in Brazil weed is illegal, but it won lead into jail if you get caught using it or holding, and if you play your cards right, no criminal records as well. But we still have a long way to go and I want to see weed completely legal as well

It depends on the state/city you are in.

Ex-DEA want legal action taken against the beatiful new legal states of Washington and Colorado. Link

Now why do you think they are doing this? It's because they all have their hands in cookie jars that will take a hit if the legalazation movement spreads. One of them works for an agency that adminsters employment drug tests, another works for a prescription drug company. It's obvious they have no interest in messing up their money and that is their only consern, forget state and personal rights when it comes down to the almighty dollar bill.

Ex-DEA. Key word there: "ex". Meaning they no longer have any authority. Meaning it doesn't matter what they think.

Has Holder made a statement on WA and CO legalizing cannabis yet?

Publicly? No, but in private talks with the heads of the respective governments, he basically gave them the green light to at least see how it goes. Expect no interferance from the feds on this.

Mhm, that's good news indeed. Hopefully, he won't do what Obama did and turn around and raid the dispensaries in Co and WA.

Indeed, I take him at his word for now though as both states have been able to continue with each step of the process. Dispensaries have already started to covert into recreational sales. It won't be long before the advertisement for cannibus tourism begins and that will be a glorious day indeed. Finally shedding the shackles of oppression!

Just have to worry about leaving snack items lying around.  Those Doritos and Oreos won't stand a chance.

Legalization is a one-sided issue. After all, when was the last time someone didn't smoke weed and supported it being legalized?

Didn't someone just link to Penn earlier in this thread? The whole world doesn't consist of children thankfully, so there are a lot of people out there who support freedoms that they don't take advantage of personally. Troll attempt?

O man... 14?! Thats the problem. You were WAY to young. Damn.. school must have been hell. Weed puts the f**k it in you. So at 14.. your brain AND body are still developing. So YES at that age smoking pot WILL do damage. That was foolish. I waited until i was 18 in my senior year of high school. Ive been smoking MJ pretty much every day since for about 4 years now. And I could not be better. Seriously.. 14 is WAY TO YOUNG. If your gonna start smoking MJ then you MUST wait until atleast after highschool if not later. Wait. Wait as long as you can. The older you start smoking ( if u must combust ) the better.

Hell i like smoking so much that ive made it a hobby of mine. And over the past 4 years i have refined this hobby. I no longer smoke MJ. I do not set it on fire. I vaporize it. Its as healthy as can be. I cannot STAND smoke. Its like swallowing a handful of needles. 2 years of setting the stuff on fire took its toll on my health. Nothing bad. I just felt like crap for the longest time. Bad, chronic migraines. Dizziness. Just.. as if i was hunger over all the time. That and i went from being able to hold my breathe under water for 3 minutes to not even one. 

So i got myself a silver surfer vaporizer. And it is just.. the bees knees. The taste.. is like the smell! Its smooth, its like breathing in butter. Since then my health is BETTER then what it was before i ever started smoking. This... plant. This.. weed that just grows in the ground like any other. It is nothing to be afraid of. And if you found yourself not enjoying the activity then maybe its not for you. It is not for everyone. Everyone is different and everyone will have a different experience. You have to be smart about it. I have had a new appreciation for life since i started consuming MJ. Not only did it help sky rocket my social life, but MJ.. helped me find my true passion. Astronomy. I like living... and if i could live out the rest of life smoking pot, looking through the eyepiece of a telescope each night i can easily say. I could die happy.

It certainly seems to be the trend, right? There are certainly strong arguments in favor of decriminalizing it, considering we once prohibited the use of alcohol as well.

#132 Posted by MrPraline (21321 posts) -
The argument that only "potheads" care about legalisation is a joke. I haven't touched weed since chilling in the playground behind my old high school. Must've been 14 or 15. Long time ago (not for people like mzopfkeuc though).
