    It's safer than tobacco and alcohol?

    Let you ask you guys something. Tobacco and alcohol are causing trouble, why is it those two drugs are spared? It's kind of going off topic, but what is it the nation sees in those two drugs? Is it those drugs got a hold on the nation before people realized they were bad?

    To get back on topic,

    weed is a plant right? So why is it weed is being put into brownies and you have to smoke it? How come I don't hear about weed pills where weed is legal? I know some places in California have weed brownies and stuff for those with a prescription.

    They have been legal for a while now so it is a norm. The government doesn't see it as a problem because they make loads of money off it. Yet they both kill people everyday. Go figure.

    They actually do have THC pills but they aren't that popular.

    We tried banning alcohol in the 1930s and that didn't work out so well. Just caused crime to skyrocket.

    There are pills for medicinal use. I'm not sure if many people take them for recreational purposes though.

    Generally, the easiest way to take marijuana without the hazards of inhaling smoke is to use a vaporizer, which turns the weed into vapor instead of smoke.

    It's a lot safer than tobacco. Less health risks and it's not additive (though don't confuse it for being non-dependent).

    You're looking at it the wrong way. You shouldn't ask why those are spared, but instead ask why cannabis is illegal to begin with. The primary reasons behind it being outlawed are greed, ignorance, and bigotry. Cannabis has a lot of industrial uses and many big companies didn't like the cheap, competing material. There was also developing stereotype of it being an immigrant's (primarily Mexican) drug, and this is also why the Spanish name, marijuana, became so popular. It was associated with blacks and even the Irish (as Americans generally disliked them at the time). Journalism used generic fear-mongering tactics to get more attention to their papers, and over time people became terrified and ignorant of the drug itself. The whole thing is really stupid.

    And as Ixion said, they did make alcohol illegal. Prohibition didn't work; it increased crime, restricted people's freedoms, and it gave power to the gangs. Today, the drug war is doing the exact same thing. The reason cannabis is still illegal is because a majority of people don't understand it and want it to remain illegal.

    It seems to me the weed smokers you hang around with aren't that cool.

    No one can force you to try it. I can only give my recommendation. It's harmless (especially if you consume it without smoking) and makes for a fun time every now and then.

    It's weird how you presume this. You don't need to hang out with those sort of people to know they exist.

    I hear this multiple times every time I go to a party, and the people there are always baffled by it. It's become very tiring for me. Some will continue trying to persuade and convince me, not taking the time to realize I've already given this my thoughts and that I legitimately do not care for it. I've never sat around and thought, "You know what? I feel like trying out weed; let's go do that." It just hasn't happened. I don't feel any incentive to try it. I don't need it to relax, I don't need it work as a socializing piece, and I don't need to to make my perspective any different than what it is now.

    I know they exist. Who cares? I don't like potheads either.

    Sorry to presume, but it really seems like the people you hang around with aren't that cool. If someone doesn't want to smoke, then that's fine, but it seems you're getting badgered about it.

    Cannabis (CBD) New cure for schizophrenia!

    So the point of the story is to prefer, high in CBD, Sativa and avoid, high in THC, Indica.

    No. Pure cbd in any form, preferably in oil or capsule form for schizophrenic patience. But yeh if you do smoke it cbd high strains would be more uplifting than couch lock. But pure cbd with no thc can cure schizophrenia, well basic knoledge tells me this from what ive read.

    I was just curious what you meant by weed culture. It seems you're basically referring to potheads, which I definitely understand being annoyed with.

    Is that a sweeping statement when you say you don't like potheads? Or is it that you have a defined picture of someone who smokes, and nothin will distract that well balanced view?

    As Rapture said, there are people who rely on pot and ultimately have it affect their life negatively. I can understand being annoyed when being around those people.

    I guess that's how I use the term pothead, although technically a pothead is just someone is who smokes weed habitually.

    Are you serious? =/ Weed is practically harmless. Alcohol, especially strong alcoholic drinks, should be illegal its much more destructive. Alcohol is the cause for many deaths every year because of drunk driving, weed isn't..

    Btw I'm not a weed smoker, I don't use it myself - it's legal here though, so I'm not trying to defend it as a user. I wouldn't care if they made it legal or illegal around the world, because I would never use it myself.

    The only negative effects of smoking weed is the smoking part. If you vaporize it, eat it, or take it in pill form, there's really nothing to worry about.

    It's not an addictive drug. Some people are addicted to eating tape constantly. Weak people can get addicted to anything.

    Addiction is a state of mind and some drugs alter our state of mind.
    Gambling isnt a drug but people are addicted to it.

    Definitely not addictive. I was a heavy smoker for a long time. Did I want to smoke a lot of the time, yes. But it is very easy to drop. I never let it affect anything in my life. It actually helped me with studying lol. I focus much better and didn't get easily distracted. I had to drop it to get a job after graduating college. Haven't looked back since. Is very easy to do away with. Going on a year now and haven't smoked once. I get an occasional urge to do it but not like I'm flipping out and getting the shakes.
