You should be able to find it much easier since you posted and know what thread you're referring to. I've seen where your threads come from on this topic and they're not good sources. Sorry, but it's true.

Uhh...no?

Why should I go on a duck hunt for these alleged posts? I've already produced my sources, and I can produce more if need be. You're trying to make your point, so you go and find your own back-up. Until you do, consider yourself pwned.

I did a search on "marijuana" in ChitChat and 304 results came up. I am not looking and searching for your specific posts where you mention your sources.

Can you please guide me (well us) directly to what your sources are?

I think I found some on the Politics board from over 3 years ago. Yeah, I'm not gonna waste my time reading posts from over 3 years ago because he doesn't feel like backing himself up now.

I know lots of people who smoked marijuana from the time I was in 8th grade to the present. That covers 35 years of my life.

Plus, we live in a faster and far more stressful, pressure-packed world than even my parents did - and they grew up during the Great Depression!

I don't really expect those who love marijuana to believe anything negative about it anyway.

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who discourages mind-altering drug use is never "pwned."

Speaking of that, do you know what the biggest problems in school were back then regarding children?
- Running in the halls
- Chewing gum
- Talking in class

In the 1990s and later, it is:
- Illegal drugs
- Teen pregnancy
- Guns in school

(I'm sure glad I didn't have to worry about some other kid packing a gun when I was in school in the '60s and '70s!)

Yeah, we have come a long way, but the problem is a lot of it was for the worse!

And there are many people out there who know friends who ruined their lives by starting with marijuana.

We may be living in a faster world, but no way is it more stressful or pressure-packed than the '30s and '40s. When was the last time you engaged in an air-raid drill? Or saw a house with a bomb shelter? When was the last time your father skipped dinner because there wasn't enough food to go around for the whole family?

He violated his contract. He had every right to be suspended. Even he said what he did was dumb. I agree; it was.

I don't "love marijuana." I've never smoked it, and as long as it is illegal, I don't intend to smoke it, either. If it's decriminalized? IDK. But that's the exact same way I feel about alcohol and cigarettes.

Quote:
"Marijuana is not a benign drug; its use impairs learning and judgment and may lead to the development of mental health problems."
- American Medical Association

Mental health problems are a long-term effect of smoking marijuana. Just like mental health problems are a long-term effect of drinking alcohol.

Quote:
"Smoking marijuana can injure or destroy lung tissue...

And so does smoking cigarettes.

Quote:
...Marijuana smoke contains 50-70% more of some cancer-causing chemicals than does tobacco smoke."
- American Lung Association

Here's a study done in 2006: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...501729_pf.html

Looks like you need to update your information.

Quote:
"Recent research has indicated that for some people there is a correlation between frequent marijuana use and aggressive or violent behavior. This should be a concern to parents, community leaders and all Americans."
- The National Crime Prevention

So says the National Crime Prevention. They lump marijuana in with tobacco and alcohol, so what they say for marijuana should also be taken into consideration when discussing alcohol and tobacco.

As far as I'm concerned, someone who ignores proven scientific research is always pwned.
