http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-term_effects_of_... http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/34110/title/Is-Cannabis-Really-That-Bad-/ I do agree that smoking of any type is bad but that is not the only way to get high.
You just said something that is quite telling. If one wants to "get high" they are simply running from other problems to an entirely new one. If it were me, I would not accept wiki as a valid source, anyone can write what they choose there.
It depends on the article sources, I scrutinize articles before I read them. I for one do not need to get high, and I have quit several times to get jobs, exams, ect. I feel that it is dependent aping the users habit and mental stability.
I've seen the damage it does to long term users first hand. I have a couple uncles and aunts that made a daily habit out of it. As they got older they seemed more scattered, even paranoid.
I'm all for medical marijuana though (in oil or pill form).
Touche, sir. I would only counter that opinion with another, I believe that marijuana has help many people including me.
I wanted people to try to find scientific reasons not to, kind of a dirty trick as there is no real credible sources for why it is bad.
short term memory loss is proven.
FrontLine did a good summary of the ill health effects back in 1997 and ScienceDaily has a good story based on research from the NIH. You can google negative health effects of marijuana and look for reputable sources of medical + scientific info.
*Didn't mean to comment above as well. Oops.
The habits of the user play a much more significant role in the harms of marijuana. I do not have a source for this information as it was what my psychology professor (a nuro-psychologist ) told me when I asked him about long term damage of weed.
