My friend told me today that he had been clean for over a month, and he was really happy because he's started having dreams again... He said he'd smoked pot since he was 10... and he hadn't had a dream since he'd started smoking pot... and now he's dreaming again--or, at least remembering them again... lol, he was totally thrilled
Aww . . . how cute! _ _ _ _ _ is dreaming again. Hehe.
lol, yeah, and he's dreaming some "freaky sh*t" too.

Well, I really do think pot is a bad habit, but it really isn't hurting anybody if it's legal in the home. I mean, we live in a dry county, but people are still allowed to drink in their own homes. Why can't they smoke pot, too, as long as it isn't in public or somewhere where they could get hurt?

Really, i think alcohol is a lot like pot as far as it impares your mental and physical abilities. ... if alcohol is legal, why not legalize pot. ... although,

Well, no. People would still lace it. Just not if you were to buy it in stores. I think if pot was sold in stores, people would buy it, bring it home put some chemicals in it and sell it on the street. That's probably what would happen... a lot of people want laced pot.
That is very true. If they legalized it, and people did start to lace and re sell it, we might have trouble--more than we do right now.

It depends what kind of person is smoking pot, though.
If they have an addictive personality, it can get bad.
Drive them into debt, get them on the street, etc.

Pot doesn't help anyone, unless they have some serious illness or something, and they are in alot of pain, I could see why they would want to smoke it.

I've seen tons of kids (smart ones) who begin to smoke pot, everything goes downhill. Marks, relationships with friends & family, and respect for themselves, and others.

Drugs and drinking are serious things if people take them too far, and there's already enough problems with drinking (debt, suicide, drunk driving) to add another thing to the list.

Some kids are good with it though...they try it a couple times for the experiance, and that's it. That's not too bad.

A bunch of me and my friends were talking about what's better, being drunk, or high. (I've never experianced either, I don't drink, or do drugs) and they said that being drunk was better, cause it lasts longer, and a bunch of other crap.

That's also true, Fiona. ... lol, i just can't decide on the situation. I don't think it would help anyone (unless used for medical purposes) if it was legalized... And i think the only reason i want it legalized is because some of my friends do it and 1)i don't want them to do something illegal, and 2) I don't want them to get pot laced with something they'll have a bad reaction to. But i also think if it was legalized... it wouldn't help most of the problems that surround drugs anyway, and possibly get more kids hooked on harder drugs... shew, i just don't know.

That's what my friends said too! ... i don't really understand why they want to get high if being drunk is better... but, oh well... They're decision I guess.

It's hard decision for some people.

But I don't think it will help anyone, unless they are constantly in severe pain.

I don't understand it either, 

Ohh well.

I don't agree with legalising cannibas, however I do believe it should be used for medical purposes. It can be used for chronic pain relief. It eases symptoms of multiple sclerosis and the like.

I think that there would be more of a problem if it were legalised, as pot can lead to short-term drug-induced psychosis and longer-term mental illness. Cannabis use has been linked with depression, anxiety and schizophrenia.

I've smoked pot and I've been drunk and I have to say, alcohol is definately the way to go. Much fun.

Does it really help headaches? Never knew that.

I've actually changed my mind on the whole thing. I don't think it should be legalised. I mean it should...but to an extent. It has really bad effects like mental effects, causing depression etc.

Still doesn't mean I won't do it though. lol

I don't know, I hate drugs all around.

It can really change a person into something that they're not, and can ruin their entire lives if they take it too far.

I think it's too risky to say yes to legalizing it.

Wouldn't it cost governments more from hospital bills anyway?

And what if someone just smoked alot of pot, and then they go for a drive. That's just as bad as drunk driving. I know I don't want to be killed by some stupid kid who decided to smoke pot, then drive while high.

Just my thoughts on it.

No! I think making it more accessable to people is a terrible idea... for a small percentage of people it can trigger mental illnesses which i'm sure many of you know and having a close relative who has gone through that i feel pretty strongly! Getting high a few times and having fun is not worth risking a life of paranoid thoughts and being dependent on your family.

I agree with legalizing marijuana for medical purposes only.

And I consider alcohol and cigarretes a drug. They have NOT benefits in your health, they only create dependency(addiction) Alcohol is the major source can lead to Alcoholism, a serious disease which can make you and your family a living hell. Also, it can lead to cancer(liver) like cigarrettes does.

not to sound like a know it all, but pot doesn't really do that...it's barely even a drug...what your talking about is more like drugs like shrooms, cocaine, LSD and heroin...those are bad drugs! Marijuana can be good and it can be bad; like as you said, it can be bad when you are driving. It can impair you somewhat, so driving should not be risked.

However, if pot was legalized, or decriminalized, the government would be the one's growing it and producing it. Odds are they would not add any of the chemicals/substances that most pot growers add. The pot would be of lower quality, and very un-effective. It would end up only being used for medical purpose's anyways(like it allready is in some places).

So in many people's opinions(mine included) it should not necisarily be legalized for the use of impairment, but for the use of medicine, or in use for medical treatmeants.

When it comes to smoking it for impairment, or for fun; pot should just be de-criminalized, in other words, you are allowed to hold a certain amount, and if you have over that amount, only then can you get punished for holding it. I think thats what it means, thats it in short terms.

here's an extra bit : it's good for headaches...and people who have insomnia. It is also good for people with eating disorders, because it gives them the "munchies"

I think it should be legalized, it doesn't do more harm than alcohol. Most of my friends use it every day and they aren't weird or junks or something. They're just normal people. I also smoke it like once or twice a year, and I don't see anything wrong with it.
And I really think that doctors should be able to prescribe it. My dad used it when he had some sort of illness that caused him a lot of pain, and it really helped him.

agree, although, what is shrooms?? i've never heard of that. Acid is a powerful wicked drug, though. NEVER, EVER take acid! EVER. Bad trips can be permanent, and even if you quit, you can still have an episode yrs later because it fries your brain.

lol, i just had a thought... do you know how many people would go totally broke in my county if pot was legalized? I know so many ppl that grow and sell it for a living... lol, they'd have to get a real job! a legal job! i don't think they could do it.  lol.

Hallucinogeon mushrooms. I've done them a few times, they're fun. Tony Danza talked to me once while on them.

That soooo rarely happens (a professional told me that). I have MANY friends who have done acid MANY times. They're fine.
