    It's illegal where I live and I believe it's wrong to get high.

    I absolutely smoke weed whenever I can.  I know "law" is generally just scribble on paper, and to presume legality equates to morality is to be as dumb as a box of hair.

    I know for certain marijuana is good medication, and I know that in the future everyone will look back at persons who supported and enforced marijuana prohibition as the low intelligence scumbags they are.

    It is illegal & I don't really want to go to jail. I have never even seen any either.
    I will say tho as my arthritis gets worse in my knees at times you feel like you would take anything to get rid of the pain.

    I've never enjoyed the (smell) of smoke whether it be from weed or tobacco. Inhaling smoke into my lungs could never be a favorite pastime for me no matter what the "benefits" may be afterwards.
    If I don't enjoy something then I don't do it, eat it, drink it, or use it.  Having a good time should not be an "acquired taste".

      Tried it in college and that's when I knew for sure it wasn't my thing.

    I went thru my little Cheech & Chong period when I was in college but that was a loooong time ago.

    Even though I don't partake anymore, I have no problem with those who do and I support the efforts towards its legalization.

      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).

    I worked in an arena when I was a teen and that smell of that weed made me sick to my stomach.  I never did like that.  Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't mean we all have to do it.  I do not mind others doing it but it is just not for me.  I am not a sheeple.

    Back myself ? CHOSE is not in need of backing. We have choices period. You can, whoever wants to can, but it has always been rather annoying to me for people to  be so worried about those who don't ; even pressuring them to try. The choses we take form the trails we take. This is just the path I choose to take.

      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.

      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.

    i know from experience that it make me lazy. also inhaling smoke from anything...not a good idea. a better question would be why should I smoke weed?

      I will never understand why people think inhaling any amount of smoke is okay or "natural."

    I'm all for medical marijuana though (in oil or pill form). I hate the use of marijuana as a form of pleasure however. Mostly because I think psychologically effects are a whole lot worse than physical effects.

      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.

    There are many reasons such as smoke of any type not being good for our lungs or any parts of our bodies. Long term users easily appear to be living, breathing, stereotypes and cautionary tales AGAINST it's use. There's also the fact that it is not "natural" as many claim because it's being and has been tinkered with by man to manipulate the levels of various chemicals in it. Further, you never know who made what you're getting or what's really in it unless you are a chemist trained in finding out or choose to hire one for each batch you get. It is a stinky odor and just passing by people who reek of it, I have gotten headaches. It is also a contributor to various ailments that cigarette smoking cause as well.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-term_ … f_cannabis http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles. … 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.

    Well we are given random drug tests at work.  So I don't smoke it or I would be fired.  Can't afford to be unemployed.  I am okay with it for medical use.  for example, if I had to be on Chemotherapy, I would want some to help me with the nausea that comes from that treatment
