    Here's another story some of you aren't going to like. Please note, this is my profession, that's why I post information confirming the dangers of addictive drugs. What you do with it is up to you. Please note also, the study is preliminary, with a small sampling. However, the overwhelming results bear further, more in-depth study.
    Let the denials begin. :rolleyes:

    I have never tried marijuana…but unfortunately age has left me with some of those abnormalities (I’m not that old, but the aging process seems to have increased since 40). It is amazing that people, even apart from study, would think that the drug would have no adverse affect on the brain.

    You do not want to wear an Izod shirt while you are on LSD because the Alligator will try to kill you.

    I can think of a couple of members on this board that will take issue with any negative "studies" on pot smoking.

    It's a harmless slice of heaven here on earth, doncha know? :thumbs:

    Everything in moderation. So roll a joint and put the bong away. Smoke responsibly!

    Would you apply that theme to all drugs or just your favorite?

    God created everything. But everything God created is not safe for our consumption. Wanna' try some Saint Ignatius beans? How about some Poison Sumac,asbestos or globefish for starters (although they would finish you)?

    And I get to see the results of believing that. I have a much lower opinion of it. Much, much lower ... :laugh:
    There is no such thing with pot. Even if you only smoke one joint a month, you 1) put enough THC in your system to test positive (and thereby be subject to a DUI charge in 23 states) for a month, 2) deposit more tars in your lungs than seven cigarettes, and 3) waste whatever time it took you to smoke the joint.

    But, if anyone wants, "Smok'em if ya got'em." No skin off my nose. Just know the consequences -- which are still consequences, even if their existence is denied.

    Absolutely.

    From personal experience with family members and friends who smoke the stuff, they tend to make very poor decisions, lose initiative to better their lives and the lives of their loved ones, and often move to harder drugs.

    I'm not against the use of marijuana for true medical conditions (glaucoma) or pain relief for cancer patients, but it needs to be prescribed by a doctor.
