Cannabis, aka marijuana and by numerous other names, is a preparation of the Cannabis plant intended for use as a psychoactive drug or medicine. It's a Schedule I controlled Substance. Its use is widespread among young people. Marijuana overactivates parts of the brain that contain the highest number of these receptors. This causes the "high" that users feel. Other effects include: altered senses (ex: seeing brighter colors) altered sense of time changes in mood impaired body movement difficulty with thinking and problem-solving impaired memory

Yeah true but then at the same time this means more people who are going to end up: homeless, on the streets begging, college drop-outs and addicts...is that what we really want for our society?
Why do you assume this?
I personally know a whole lot of people that are regular users and have, for a very long time, maintained their jobs. Mahsa, your statements are only your opinions.
It does sound like the government protecting the drug perscription cartel. And anyone can grow their own MJ.
kudos. it sure is. Do you know how much money the G would lose if they made it legal? They would lose millions and millions just from all the psychotropic medications alone. Can't even count the millions of dope arrests and fines that G snatches up.
Most addicts have trouble holding jobs. Even heavy smokers and drunks.
Many people have learned to cope with ugly childhoods or horrific living siutations without the need for mind-altering substances to make them "feel better". However, sadly, some never get to that stage of growth & development.
I disagree. Though there are impacts, I don't think they are that disastrous and widespread. Sure there is at least one individual described but that does not make it a statistic.
I wonder if you make these assumptions about tobacco users, prescription medicine users, people who drink alcohol, or just about the things you personally don't agree with?
