    All of you misinformed people out there don't smoke pot...most of you live day in and day out the nauseating lifestyle of work,eat,sleep,work. That can't be healthy!. Marijuana is not by any means harmless, but alcohol and tobacco use are proven to be worse. The government has laws set forth to ban pot...and that may be all well and good, but I just wish that the people who don't know about the TRUE effects should back off and let the smokers fight their own fight and the non-users should be more open-minded to use of Pot.

    actually (to the other person from arizona below me), under arizona state law (and dont try to correct me, i can send you a copy of my arrest record) i was charged with a class six felony for possession of under two pounds of marijuana. 15 pounds is ridiculous, if you were arrested in possession of that much marijuana they would probably charge you with possession with intent to distribute (deal) and you would be messed up. as far as the moral implications i do not consume any mind altering substances anymore and never will again. makes you stupid and just causes you to mess up your life.

    I so agree with those who tune people bout smoking, im a regular smoker and find nothing wrong with weed or myself. Like most i reckon try it out, if its not for u then it will never be but dont judge those who do they like it and thats that. As for the marajuana for medical purposes, if it helps then brilliant, we are short of many cures!!
