The use of cannabis is heavily debated, with studies showing both positive and negative effects of the drug. What are your thoughts on using marijuana?
Jeff McKenney (2 months ago)
If you talk to people you will hear that if the person doesnt like it they won't do it unlike other illegal drugs or cigarettes and alcohol some like it recreationally some medically I think the plant deserves respect the benefits far outway the bad.

@Ghost controlling a meat suit i said "it Can sound Like Music". Why im even arguing with you if can't even understand what you read? That's called an example.

@Pvt Parts You're argument has changed from "EVERYONE" to "can".

@Ghost controlling a meat suit by voices i mean any voice. For example your neighbor is building something next door. Sound can be different than normally. It can sound like music if someone is using machines for example

So, since you say Indica, Ruderalus (if I spelled it right) and hybrids are not cannabis, then what is it, according to you?

This was way too short. Weight gain and a good night's sleep. I used to smoke a bowl then run 6 miles. It's safe and natural. How come when I smoke I am more mentally active?

this is framed in a very targeted bordering on propagandic way - comparing and mixing a mess of misinformation and truths - research everything, y'all: we have to go read up on everything and best go directly to universities and other top establishments in the fields of science, etc.

Calling it marijuana only helps towards the stigma that cannabis cannot be used for good. Personally, I rely on to treat chronic nausea. So many specialists given up on me. I deserve a chance

And in 2015, scientists discovered that certain neurons at the base of the brain increased appetite when activated by THC. ... "Using cannabis also stimulates the production of ghrelin — the 'hunger hormone', which increases your appetite," Professor Copeland said.

Surely a greater contributor to stunted brain development and mental health issues in young people is their addiction to (legal) cell phones. Over 30 years of smoking and not even the nuclear grade stuff has made me have hallucinations. It can make me have lucid dreams.

I've been smoking everyday for 20 years, I've gone through university, had art exhibitions, learnt to play drums and the guitar,I speak 2 languages, I run my own web design company and enjoy a spot of gardening. Alcohol kills your liver function, messes with your sense of balance, provokes violence , causes heart disease, and is one of the main reasons for domestic violence,child abuse and divorce. So I'll pass on that beer thanks for the offer.

After living 40 years as a heroin addict ,I must profess that marijuana has helped me to get off heroin. I have been narcotic free for a year as of may 10th, 2019.I am a spokesperson for Therapeutic health Services which is a methadone providing organization. Marijuana has literally saved my life. I am currently detoxing medically off methadone and without the assistance of cannabis I don't believe i'd be attempting this.

Lol so much twisting of the truth in one video. Clearly anti-cannabis. Now make "Alcohol 101" and "Cigarettes 101", let's see how many positive things you can say about those.

I think all drugs that come in plant-form should be legal. It is better that way, preventing users-to-be from falling in the underground circles of dealers that will surely try pushing harder drugs to get the hooked for life. This way even Cocaine would be legal as it comes from a tree leaf, but to get the same effects they'd need to chew a ton of leafs per day, and by just chewing on few they get a bit of calming al relaxation rather than the hyper from processed cocaine.

It wasn't outlawed because of the reasons you listed . The lumber industry pushed it because it was a direct competitor that was a more eco friendly option and cheaper. Even back then people knew it was beneficial and studies today prove that's the case. People are allowed to drink alcohol which has a serious effect on your health short and long term but weed is illegal ... cause the pot head down the street likes to buy twinkies a lot. Proven to have real benefits and the only negetives are ones own opinions and it's up to the individual to decide what those are.

0:44 "overwhelms the bodies natural level of THC" This claim is incorrect. While the human body does produce it's own endocannabinoids, and some with similar function to thc, your body does not actually make the molecule of THC.

I'm 55. In all the years that I have smoked or ingested marijuana. I have never hallucinated! I have taken LSD & MAGIC MUSHROOMS, so I know what a hallucination looks & feels like! I don't know anyone that has ever hallucinated on pot!
Andy Theber (5 months ago)
haters hating not saying it can’t slow you down or reduce intelligence, and maybe maybe make a person more hostile if they have anger issues depending on who you are. Although I’m not sure if it can give you mental illness or schizophrenia or not But I believe firmly it’s dependent on your mental situation or genes and what else you could be using with weed.
Andy Theber (5 months ago)
haters hating yes I doubt that too maybe it increases paranoia in some people. Although I don’t know about full on hallucinations I know on bath salts you can.
