Marijuana
 
Right? Wrong? Should it be legalized? do you have information Postive and/or negative about Marijuana?

Well, I certainly don't think people should go to jail for it. In my opinion, it isn't any different from drinking or cigarettes. It should be a personal preference and I think it should be legalized. :D

Hemp (Marijuana) is the most unused resource we have on this planet...I have alot of research on this why it should be legalized...if you need information pm me and I can e-mail you some articles....

**Food for thought...Did you know that growing hemp was legal in the Untied States till the 1930's when big-money oil/petroleum companies lobbied to have it ilegalized because you can make fuel out of hemp...yes you can and hemp can be made into so many things it's incrediable...do you think we would be in Iraq if it wasn't for oil and those interests???

President Washington grew MJ. A few others have grown it in the White House.


Personally, I don't like the stuff, and it should remain illegal. It's no more of a medicine than LSD, Meth, or Coke.


H-D :music:

Did you know???
Much research is being done that PROVES cannibus' medicinal powers (without getting the user high). I just read a money mag article that finds, ironically, the anti-depressant, appetite suppressant, and brain boosting pwers of this "drug". THe only part that potheads use is the very tip of the plant, which contains THC. The rest of it (grown up to 5 feet or so) can be used to make clothing, food, fuel, rope, beauty supplies, all kinds of fun stuff. Washington grew it, yes... So did Thomas Jefferson. The reason it is illegal is beacuse of a politician by the name of William Hearst who, back in the days of Jim Crow, wanted to find some way to villify blacks and said that it was the "devil's weed" pointing out all the ex-slaves who used it. He instiled fear in the voting public (then, only white) by creating the term, "Reefer Maddness". Ignorance is worse than addiction in this case... my :2cents:

I've never used the stuff but been around others that have. I personally don't like it, plus it smells like stale skunk butt :rolleyes: :wtf:

Well BOO for the *TIP* of the plant and *Yaye* for the rest of it... :eek:

Shows hiw much you know, kid.... LSD is a medicine... it was developed as one -- getting high is really a side effect in a way. LSD was used on mental paciets and such thoughout 60ies. To top all that LSD, unlike meth, mj, and such is NOT a drug, but a halluscinigen (it is not addictive, it uses different mechanism to get you 'high').

Anyhow, MJ should be legalized, b/c regardless of how bad it can be, it's got NOTHING on alchohol. Who would you rather deal/live with pothead or alcoholic? You see many people think that if one uses occasional pot than he's a pothead, but that's like calling someone who enjoyes occasianla beer an alchololic.

OxyContin is a narcotic and it's slang nickname is "hillbilly heroin" and is one of the most (if not thee most) abused drugs on the street, yet, one can get that legally for chronic pain. It has similar effects to heroin. It's been shown that Marijuana helps those of us with chronic pain and to me, people shouldn't have to worry about going to jail for trying to manage their pain. Just my thoughts. :smokin:

I had a good friend in high school, who occassionally smoked pot. Then as it usually goes he had to have more to get that high - then moved on to other stuff. Now he is dead. Killed himself while high. While there might be some merit to what you all have mentioned about the medicinal purposes (I have not done clear research so I don't speak knowledgably) it is a drug and someone like you, JON, has no business doing it. :) :) Get high on your life, helping people, mastering a skill etc. (I hope that isn't why you are asking - I am going to assume that you are just trying to make interesting conversation here!) I work in a wellness center as a counselor, and we are addressing Chronic pain in a variety of ways that don't involve medication like massage acupuncture chiropractic and emotional counseling. I used to be cynical about this stuff but having seen it first hand I am amazed. Even recently a Harvard researcher wrote a great article that we as a medical society need to start thinking outside the box, going on to state that alternative approaches deserve a second look. Emotional stress produces hormones and chemicals in the body that aggrivate pain. Things like alchol and pot just numb the symptoms, they don't address the source of the pain. I would rather eliminate the source than numb the symptoms. Anyway, just my :2cents:

Sorry to hear that, but there was this kid who started drinking beer in high school. Than he moved on to hard liquor and than he killed himself while drunk driving... lets make beer illegal?
