    "I wish I could find the study again on line, but I came across a study that was done, and it stated that after the high wore off there was no residual side affect with memory loss and such." Ummmm . . . so you can't remember where it was?

    No Bruce I never looked at the link and it was years ago. I dare to you remember something like that. Especial since I did not book mark it and it was over 3 years ago.

    Est pot is more natural than coke or beer. You have to extract the coke and make it a powder. You have to brew the beer and let yeast do its thing. Yeah they are natural, but you cannot go up to a plant and dry it and get beer or coke, With bud you just cure the flowers and smoke.

    The reason I ask about beer and wine and things like that Nep G. Is because those things are far worse for you than pot is. Most Doctors will concure with that also. I also did not want to be telling a minor that it is OK for them to smoke pot. So if your a drinker then your old enough. Thats all nothing else intended.

    So your telling me that having a can of Coors Light is waay worse for a person's body than smoking a joint?

    Tell me then, what is the reason for the illegality of pot while something worse for you is legalized? I fail to see the reasoning in the US for this. If you can make money off of something POTENTIALLY harmless or less harmful to the body then why not market/use it?

    Lol, I'm not.

    I know, I'm bad.


    For some reason when I think of drinking I think of getting wasted. It's hard for me to comprehend having just one coors lol. I guess because i'm so young.

    No, I wouldn't say smoking a joint is better than having one coors. I'd say having 3 or 4 shots of vodka or tequila or whatever is worse than having a bowl or a joint.

    Yeah, I'd have to say that it all depends on how much you use, as like how JLAP has just said. Ok, maybe 1 joint is worse than 1 beer, but eventually if you get over the edge on either it can get very dangerous. Also look at the side effects from the two. Pot - gets you high can cause lung cancer, brain and other body problems, and "makes you lazy". Alcohol - gets you drunk, effects your use of common sense, can cause people to act very different when intoxicated, bad for your liver, brain, and stomach, causes a lot more deaths than pot and also adds to a lot of pollution and excess trash due to the packaging.

    I also have to say that when you do these things i guess that there are more appropriate times to 'experiment' and times when you shouldn't be doing it for many reasons (or at least to me).

    And one of the things that also tends to make me mad is when people do do those expensive drugs or any drug at all to a certain extent on certain occasions. Such as if you are a parent, and have young or even my aged (15) kids.

    Sorry, with coke you need to mash it and THEN dry it to get the concentrations. Obviously this added, nefarious step makes it unatural and bad for you. And if we're just talking about curing, I'll go along: cigaretts. All you really need to do is cure the leaf.

    Without arguing anything else, the point remains that just because it's found in nature, that doesn't make it natural to your body or good for you.

    On what basis is it better? I'm genuinely curious. Beer is good for you because it contains iron, calories, nutrients, and is a good way to keep water. Wine is thought to have properties that help people maintain cholesterol levels. Marijuana has...? Let's face it, getting hooked on anything is bad times so the whole thing is sort of a moot point unless we're talking large quantities, in which case it's just a game of 'Choose Your Poison!'

    And don't you dare tell me it's better than beer/alcohol because you wont get addicted to it- them's fightin' words. lol

    Genuinely curious to see some hard research. With so much propaganda thrown around, there's a lot of misinformation.

    The question with medicinal Marijuana is weather or not it does whatever it does better than modern drugs. I have heard that it does something, but the question is whether it does it better than modern drugs- if it doesn’t then why do we need it? I would like to see research on this too, because it is a cornerstone of the MJ legalization argument

    There are many herbs with medicinal properties, and most of these have been superseded by modern drugs (for better of for worse)
    that makes no logic

    Dave, I don't understand your third paragraph at all.

    EST: it's actually a relatively complex process. I'm not going to post an interesting link I found because i thought it would in inappropriate lol. If you want I can Pm you. I totally agree that just because something is found in nature doesn't mean it's natural for our bodies.
