    and your statement about it causing psychotic episodes is false. thats only been seen in cases with an underlying condition, and even then, chances are slim to none.

    of course, its too much to ask to be able to have a reasonable debate on a controversial topic on beyond, so this is as good as
    You're right I'm sorry. Pot is good for you.

    Cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine, etc.= millions of deaths

    Marijuana= 0 deaths

    But, through correlation:

    Fast food causes obesity.
    Marijuana causes munchies.
    Therefore, marijuana causes obesity.

    seems like a lot of people in this thread are giving opinions, but only a few actually smoked pot more than a handful of times, and even fewer smoke "all the time". all this overanxiety, lack of motivation, brain-farts and memory lapses, IMO comes from simply not indulging in the drug enough... a couple years back i would have agreed with most people in this thread, but after all this casual use i can tell you i am one of those people that can smoke and go to work or school and function just fine. i can't contribute anything to the mental development argument, but everything else i think comes down to use... just like after having sex a few times you dont cum in 30 seconds anymore, after smoking for a while your brain chills the fuck out too

    that's not a valid argument...

    Marajuana causes munchies
    Munchies are subdued with fast food (not entirely true, but lets assume for a second it is)
    Marajunana causes one to eat fast food
    Fast food causes obesity
    Marajuana causes obesity

    i smoke weed and that argument sucks, to be honest i hate the propaganda from both sides of the argument. i don't believe for a darn second that marajuana makes your smarter, it just doesnt. but nor do i believe that it makes people drive carelessly or lead them to do harder drugs. there is no middle ground in this argument...which is probably where the truth lies

    until a see real scientific studies done by several governments all leading to more or less the same conclusions, not what some stoner found on the internet that quotes a study done by some unheard of swiss institute in 1979, then i will know what to believe...until then, i'll probably be high once or twice a week

    oh and for all you people saying it causes accidents and drug related suicides...you seriously have no idea wtf youre talking about

    Pot makes ya lazy and unmotivated, especially the extra potent stuff nowadays.

    In fact there's new research out there that shows that today's pot may even induce psychotic episodes and even contribute to long term mental illness
    Pot doesn't make you lazy, i can write extra credit essays about the most boring things in history any they have to be 5 + pages and i cna write them and get FULL credit. i can drive while under the influence with ease and i've been pulled over (want the full story pm me), because of other reasons and i was BLAZED and the cops didn't know and i drove off w/o the cop thinking anything the cop would even be suspicious, i can pass all tests while high, like saying the alphabet backwards, and holding my right foot putting my left foot on 1 point, putting my left hand index finger on my nose and spin in a circle w/o losing balance, i can be the smartest kid in class, design the best websites in hours w/ PHP/HTML/MySQL while it takes others over a week so why do you gotta be tryin to slam us when i have proof that i can function completly perfect under the influence. In fact im really blazed right now, and im still able to keep a conversation w/o trailing off with my "attention span of a three year old", now lets hear you contradict that hoe, oh yah i do know that some people can't function im just saying don't rip on all pot smokers since most cna focus better. Like a test done in England they took 200 drivers 100 smoked before this test the other 100 didn't, the course they drove on was a winding deadly very hard course that needed all your concentration, now 50% of the "sober" people hit pylons, but only 20% of the smokers hit pylons, also the high kids went a little slower (only 4kmph slower, at 38kmph while the sober people were going at 42kmph). now doesn't this test just prove you wrong or are you still in denial.

    Show me proof that someone, anyone, anywhere in the world, has died from lung cancer by just smoking marijuana (not cigarettes).

    You won't be able to find it.

    No, that's not "enough said". You said that marijuana causes lung cancer. If this was true, it should be easy to find ONE REPORTED CASE of someone dying from marijuana-induced lung cancer.

    Let's see some facts, since you're obviously an expert.
