I grew up in a conservatory. nice try though.

yes and yes. One of my peers is a Cancer specialist. Pharmaceuticals, to be specific. He finds his job quite fulfilling, not a waste i would think. In fact I could wax eloquent about the beautiful contradictory nature of his job for maybe 2.5 paragraphs, but I won't.

alcohol is merely an enabler for bottled up emotions. stop blaming the chemicals for what is invariably human error. and yes you never said to ban it, but that's only because you thought it would be more trouble to ban it because as FOV said it is "culturally embedded" which to me implied that you thought it would be better had it never been invented.

@3 pretty much. I don't drink, I rarely blaze, don't really pop pills or do much of anything. The thing I get high from the most is weight lifting. only reason I don't support banning mch of anything is because we need to allow evolution to work it's course for the sake of humanity(that and the simple fact that it costs too much relative to the benefits)

Re: Marijuana - Good or bad?

lifting has done me wonders
age 16, 5'9" 100lbs accused of being anorexic
age 20, 5'9.5 155lbs accused of doing steroids(down to 145 right now due to laziness with dieting, but I'm absolutely shredded, Im actually getting MORE looks than normal which is interesting since I was healthier 10lbs heavier)

I'm still being "made fun" of for my appearance(apparently my waist is way too small on me and my chest is disproportionately large as are my arms) but the ladies like it.

I really feel that people should use physical activity as their high. It increases health and productivity, reduces violent tendencies and has a variety of othr benefits.

Re: Marijuana - Good or bad?

age 16, 5'6" 100lbs accused of being anorexic
age 17, 5'6 113lbs lifted weights for roughly 4 months
age 20, 5'6" 107lbs not sure what happened
age 22, 5'6 103lbs accused of being severely depressed
age 23, 5'6 100.3lbs accused of being bi-polar and mildly aggressive


heh, my high is usually from internal thought fed by external stimulus via music.

but exercise would probably prevent me from destroying the cardboard boxes in a pissed-off, customer-induced rage slash, at the very least.

Re: Marijuana - Good or bad?

FYI testosterone makes you MORE aggressive. It also makes you happier and hornier.
when you lift your body tends to produce more test(among other androgens)

related to this subject, when you blaze test and DHT production are reduced. If you blaze enough you can become temporarily impotent.

Bolded- This is common knowledge and the only reason medical marijuana is allowed.

Italic- My best friend has bad ADHD, he is far calmer than ever when regularly using cannabis.

Underlined- Obvious.

I still want a source. Besides, this isn't about medical marijuana.

I obviously can't prove the story about my friend, but it's true whether you choose to believe it or not. You need the side from someone who uses the plant anyway otherwise an argument is defunct.

Smoke is harmful to your lungs, if you don't know this then you need to get your money back from your school.

Read the ingredients label on any cigarette carton. Lights don't count.

And the biggest health risk from marijuana is smoking it. This can be eased by using any peripheral that lowers the temperature after the smoke is made from combustion, such as a "volcano". So orally, as in digesting it, is better for you and gives you the same effects as smoking it.

Re: Marijuana - Good or bad?

Marijuana, when used by the right type of person, can produce some pretty severe freak outs. I've had them. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be much wrong with it, when done in moderation, and kept separate from your professional goals. Obviously any drug that you allow to cut into your professional life can be an issue.

Don't you have something with more recent references? At least 80% of that articles sources were from the 70's. The rest were from the early 80's and late 60's.

At this point I don't even know what you are doing in this conversation other than asking me for sources on everything I say. Is there anything you can add to this?

I'm asking people to provide sources for their claims. That includes you. Other than that, I have already stated my opinion.

I don't have a problem when it's necessary, aside from the accursed whiskey dick.

However, random boners are a rarity, even in the presence of pron.

Does anybody else find it mildly humerus that this convo is actually relevant?
