luv reading potheads defend their habit cus I did it for 20 years myself. so glad I finally got tired of wasting my life away getting high and decided to do something with my life instead of spending every single day waiting to get stoned. It may be the lesser of the evils when it comes to drugs, but it is still a drug. unfortanetly my 18 year old son is hooked on it and I listen to him tell me the same bull shit excuses most of you put on this thread while he throws his education away cus getting high makes him feel good. and the best part is that I blame myself because he knew that his daddy did it when he was young. life is way to precious to spend it being high, reality is alot more rewarding.
That's where moderation and priorities come in. You didn't understand them and now neither does hw. That still doesn't justify a prohibition on the rest of us who did not make it top priority and ruin our lives.

According to an approved statement from the US Department of Justice in 1988, "Nearly all medicines have toxic, potentially lethal effects. But cannabis is not such a substance. There is no record in the extensive medical literature describing a proven, documented cannabis-induced fatality. In practical terms, cannabis cannot induce a lethal response as a result of drug-related toxicity."[53]
From January 1997 to June 2005, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported zero deaths caused by the primary use of cannabis. In contrast, common FDA-approved drugs which are often prescribed in lieu of cannabis (such as anti-emetics and anti-psychotics), were the primary cause of 10,008 deaths.[54]
Everything in moderation:
A 2002 longitudinal study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal concluded that "marijuana does not have a long-term negative impact on global intelligence", and that "current marijuana use had a negative effect on global IQ score only in subjects who smoked 5 or more joints per week." The study, which monitored subjects since birth, examined IQ scores before, during and after cessation of regular marijuana use. It found current light users and former users showed average IQ gains of 5.8 and 3.5 respectively, compared to an IQ gain of 2.6 for those who had never used cannabis. The study did however show an average IQ decrease of 4.1 for heavy users

please enlighten me with your wisdom and tell me how being high is more beneficial then living life in reality, and I'm not talking about the medical benefits, or the products that can be produced from hemp, I'm talking about how sitting down and smoking pot has any benefits to your life what so ever. and then you can tell me how it's not addicting and you don't become dependent on it and don't think about getting high when your not high. and how you won't spend money that was intended for something else on weed when you don't have it. and then we'll discuss denial.

If one is doing what you describe with ANYTHING, then there is a problem. You obviously had a problem if you were spending money you didn't have or money that was meant for necessities to acquire it, and all you thought about was getting high when you weren't.
Yes, if that is your mindset, then you had developed a psychological addiction. The same type of addiction that a person may acquire for things like chocolate, comfort foods, coffee (this nation's largest addiction, and a physical one as well BTW), or anything that one enjoys but does not "need" to survive.
The difference is that most people do know how to prioritize, a skill that you had a problem with. I go to work, I'm thinking about work. I play hockey, I'm thinking about hockey. I'm playing with my kids, I'm thinking about what we're going to play next. Cannabis, like the other pleasurable products I've described, is a good thing but one cannot live their life around it as you obviously did.
Your denial is in the fact that you have this misguided belief that because you lacked the discipline and maturity to prioritize your pleasure time from everything else, that noone else can.
I find that is a common trait amongst ex-users of not just cannabis, but tobacco, alcohol, food, and other things that have been abused who also lacked the aforementioned discipline and maturity and instead blame the substance instead of themselves. They then go around preaching about how bad the substance is to folks who have the maturity and self-discipline to know that you can't live life around these things. Instead, most of us just make it a pleasurable pit stop when all other responsibilities are taken care of.
There are too many laws that protect folks like yourself from yourself while stepping on the rights of the majority responsible populace.
So while you were a perfect example of the stereotype(perpetuated by those who profit from the status quo), the majority of folks are not, and therefore, your story provides no validity to continuing a prohibition that has done more damage to the populace than cannabis ever would.
I wish you well with helping your son before it's too late, but let's place the blame where it belongs, shall we???

to len in ny: so if I understood you correctly, the majority of people who use drugs have control over their habit, and its only a few who become addicted because they don't know how to prioritize their responcibilities. really? people like me just don't have the proper mind set? I think you should do some more research and you'll find that the majority of drug users are in fact suffering from addiction not the minority. thats why we have rehabilitation centers. how ever it is a common trait for drug users of not just cannabis, but tobacco, coffee, coke, heroin, meth, pain pills, uppers, downers,( I think you see where I'm going with this) who make the excuses such as you have and believe this addiction will not happen to them. they believe when they use, it's only a "pleasurable pit stop" and will never become a problem for them. so while YOU are in fact a perfect example of the stereotype(perpetuated by those who profit from the status qoe) your excuses are quite common among drug users therefore there is no validity to your (and I use this term loosely) facts. your denial is that you believe you don't have a problem, it's everyone who doesn't share your views that does. and as for placing the blame where it belongs, I absolutely take the blame for failing to convince my son, or as you stated,preach to him enough how drugs are bad, period. and then there are people like you stating that weed is no big deal and convincing teens that it's okay to get high. thanks, I'm going to share a little bit of the blame with you if you don't mind.do some more research on the effect that drugs(yes even pot) are having on teens now a days, oh, and I almost forgot,I never once mentioned that pot shoud be prohibited, I only stated the negative effects that it can have on your life. smoke your brains out for all I care, i truly believe americans should be able to choose how the want to live, or destroy their life. good day to you Len, and peace out.
