IMListening: Your name should be "Selective Listening" If you were truly listening then at least you would live up to your name. It's funny, I posted a long explanation as to why I don't think pot or any drug is needed to produce art (see above) to answer your argument on why the arts would benefit from legalizing pot, ironically, you chose to completely ignore that. I make a comment catching someone else on an erroneous observation which happens to be in favour of your argument and not only do you LISTEN but you want to keep feeding me more of your argument down my throat.

Not only have I demonstrated that I can be fair and have an opinion without completely discrediting your arguments but you have shown that you are so intent on changing my mind that you won't even stop to open your mind one iota to any views other than your own. I don't need to read any literature on why pot is good, so don't bother providing me anymore propaganda. I have done enough research on my own and I live by my own conclusions based on experience and lieterature I have already read. I have weighed the pros and cons and I don't need you pushing your spliff down my throat, thank you very much! So spare me. I have given you enough reasons for my view point which you choose to ignore. so be it but please, go preach to someone else 'cause it ain't gonna work over here. I don't tell you to stop smoking so don't preach to me. I just don't see the benefit of legalizing pot but I don't preach to those who smoke. I simply educate those that are not in the know by telling them the truth.

Why is smoking pot a crime?
Posted: 8/23/2005 12:40:31 AM
OH! Thundermug.... you're HILARIOUS!!!!
That was humor, wasn't it?
Those of us who AREN'T potheads are the ignorant ones? Au contraire, my drug-addled friend. Read below, and weep.

OP wrote "and I made a shitload of money and retired at 37
yep, Drug dealing. It's not just a job, its an adventure"

RE: why is it illegal, I am amazed that all you whiz kids, allegdly in college (so far) and with all kinds of worldly experience at age 22, are sitting here spewing yer own opinions rather than checking facts.
Oh! that's right! You're from the left. You opinions TRUMP facts every time.
Here. A primer on wacky tobaccy:


Adverse Effects

Harm reduction has equally little appeal to those marijuana enthusiasts who naively believe that marijuana, alone of all drugs, is a perfectly harmless herb. This delusion is quickly refuted by a review of the medical literature, which reveals extensive evidence of possible adverse effects of marijuana. From a physiological standpoint, these effects are mostly mild or of marginal significance, such as temporarily elevated heartbeat, slight and subtle impacts on immune cells, alleged changes in endocrine functioning; disputed and marginal influences on newborns, and so forth. Of considerably more consequence are the alleged psychological effects, including increased risk of accidents, impaired school and job performance, amotivation, heightened risk of drug abuse and sundry other social pathologies. Nevertheless, from the standpoint of physical health, the single best established hazard of marijuana use appears to be an increased risk of lung disease from smoking.According to Dr. Lester Grinspoon, "After carefully monitoring the literature for more than two decades, we have concluded that the only well- confirmed deleterious physical effect of marihuana is harm to the pulmonary system."1 This should come as no surprise to any naive non-smoker who has exploded in a paroxysm of coughing after inhaling his or her first toke of marijuana.

http://www.maps.org/news-letters/v06n3/06364mj2.html
In the meantime, an important, unsettled concern is that of lung cancer. Despite the fact that epidemiosmoking increases the risk of cancer, especially in the throat and upper respiratory tract.6 To begin with, the tars from marijuana contain most of the same carcinogens as tobacco, to a greater or lesser extent.7 It has been argued that marijuana is even more carcinogenic than tobacco because it contains some 50% more of the highly potent carcinogens known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, by-products of incomplete combustion which are thought to be a prime culprit in lung cancer. In reply, hempsters contend that tobacco is more dangerous because it contains far more radioactive carcinogens, particularly polonium-210.8 However, this point seems moot in the light of experiments by the Leuchtenbergers and others, showing that marijuana tars, like those of tobacco, produce carcinogenic changes when applied to both animal and human lung tissue cultures.

Ok, worse for you than ciggies. What else?sssuuucckkkkkkkkkkk...



Effects of Marijuana on the Brain.
Researchers have found that THC changes the way in which sensory information gets into and is acted on by the hippocampus. This is a component of the brain's limbic system that is crucial for learning, memory, and the integration of sensory experiences with emotions and motivations. Investigations have shown that THC suppresses neurons in the information-processing system of the hippocampus. In addition, researchers have discovered that learned behaviors, which depend on the hippocampus, also deteriorate.


OK so it makes you like the OP's in here who can't find these facts. What else? ssuuuuuucckkkkk


Effects of Heavy Marijuana Use on Learning and Social Behavior. A study of college students has shown that critical skills related to attention, memory, and learning are impaired among people who use marijuana heavily, even after discontinuing its use for at least 24 hours. Researchers compared 65 "heavy users," who had smoked marijuana a median of 29 of the past 30 days, and 64 "light users," who had smoked a median of 1 of the past 30 days. After a closely monitored 19- to 24-hour period of abstinence from marijuana and other illicit drugs and alcohol, the undergraduates were given several standard tests measuring aspects of attention, memory, and learning. Compared to the light users, heavy marijuana users made more errors and had more difficulty sustaining attention, shifting attention to meet the demands of changes in the environment, and in registering, processing, and using information. The findings suggest that the greater impairment among heavy users is likely due to an alteration of brain activity produced by marijuana.

Longitudinal research on marijuana use among young people below college age indicates those who used have lower achievement than the non-users, more acceptance of deviant behavior, more delinquent behavior and aggression, greater rebelliousness, poorer relationships with parents, and more associations with delinquent and drug-using friends..... Last year, Fried and his team published early findings showing a drop in IQ scores among the adolescents in the sample who used marijuana. And because the sample group had been monitored since birth, Fried had extraordinary data on which to rely. When the IQ scores were compared to those collected prior to marijuana use, the cannabis smokers were the only group to show a decline. Significantly, the IQ scores returned to previous levels in adolescents who gave up smoking marijuana.

OK so you become an anti-social dullard, and? suuuuuccckkkk....


Effects of Marijuana on Heart Rate and Blood Pressure

Recent findings indicate that smoking marijuana while shooting up cocaine has the potential to cause severe increases in heart rate and blood pressure. In one study, experienced marijuana and cocaine users were given marijuana alone, cocaine alone, and then a combination of both. Each drug alone produced cardiovascular effects; when they were combined, the effects were greater and lasted longer. The heart rate of the subjects in the study increased 29 beats per minute with marijuana alone and 32 beats per minute with cocaine alone. When the drugs were given together, the heart rate increased by 49 beats per minute, and the increased rate persisted for a longer time. The drugs were given with the subjects sitting quietly. In normal circumstances, an individual may smoke marijuana and inject cocaine and then do something physically stressful that may significantly increase the risk of overloading the cardiovascular system.


Ok, so now we're anti-social dullards with respiratory problems risking heart attacks, so what is wrong with that.....dude? suuuucckkk..sucksuck suck



Chromosomal Damage
A significant increase (3.4 versus 1.2%) of chromosomal abnormalities was reported in marijuana users as compared to nonusers .

Effects of Marijuana on Pregnancy

Any drug of abuse can affect a mother's health during pregnancy, making it a time when expectant mothers should take special care of themselves. Drugs of abuse may interfere with proper nutrition and rest, which can affect good functioning of the immune system. Some studies have found that babies born to mothers who used marijuana during pregnancy were smaller than those born to mothers who did not use the drug. In general, smaller babies are more likely to develop health problems.

A nursing mother who uses marijuana passes some of the THC to the baby in her breast milk. Research indicates that the use of marijuana by a mother during the first month of breast-feeding can impair the infant's motor development (control of muscle movement).
....The infants of mothers who smoked the drug during pregnancy appeared to be affected by delayed auditory response, and later, delayed language development.


So my 3-eyed deaf baby with a tail is a stoner too and a little slow....dude. I mean....is that such a BAD thing?


Addictive Potential of Marijuana

A drug is addicting if it causes compulsive, often uncontrollable drug craving, seeking, and use, even in the face of negative health and social consequences. Marijuana meets this criterion. More than 120,000 people enter treatment per year for their primary marijuana addiction. In addition, animal studies suggest marijuana causes physical dependence, and some people report withdrawal symptoms


Hey,dude. I'm not addicted. I can stop any time I want suuuuccckkkkkk...suck suck....
What was the question?


Effects of Heavy Marijuana Use on Learning and Social Behavior
Depression(19), anxiety(20), and personality disturbances(21) have been associated with marijuana use. Research clearly demonstrates that marijuana has potential to cause problems in daily life or make a person’s existing problems worse. Because marijuana compromises the ability to learn and remember information, the more a person uses marijuana the more he or she is likely to fall behind in accumulating intellectual, job, or social skills. Moreover, research has shown that marijuana’s adverse impact on memory and learning can last for days or weeks after the acute effects of the drug wear off.

Students who smoke marijuana get lower grades and are less likely to graduate from high school, compared with their non-smoking peers...

Ok,so I flunk or drop out; out of life and school and have to support my 3-eyed, deaf baby with a tail by selling dope. Who cares? I can retire at 37 and wear a speedo..well if I don't get caught suuccckkkkkkkkkkkk I have my smoking buddies still suuuuccckkkk
But I won;t get caught because I drive better when I'm stoned.....dude......

A recently completed study compared the effects of smoking a marijuana cigarette with or without alcohol, alcohol alone, and placebos for each drug. Actual driving was done over a course rigged with various traffic problems. Both drugs produced impairment of driving performance, the combination being worse than either alone.

Effect on driving
...Fifty-nine subjects smoked marijuana cigarettes until "high" and then were periodically tested by highway patrol officers on the roadside sobriety test.
Overall, 94% of the subjects failed to pass the test 90 min after smoking and 60% after 150 min, despite the fact that by then plasma concentrations of THC were rather low (81). It appeared that establishing a clear relation between THC plasma concentrations and the degree of clinical impairment will be much more difficult than has been found in the case of alcohol (140). The exact prevalence of persons who might be picked up while driving under the influence of marijuana is uncertain. One survey found at least 5 ng of THC per ml in blood specimens of 14.4% of a random sample of 1792 drivers detained for erratic driving. Many were associated with blood levels of alcohol as well

Any other questions from the classless class?

In 1974 researchers learned that THC, the active chemical in marijuana, shrank or destroyed brain tumors in test mice. But the DEA quickly shut down the study and destroyed its results, which were never replicated -- until now.

Most Americans don't know anything about the Madrid discovery. Virtually no major U.S. newspapers carried the story, which ran only once on the AP and UPI news wires, on Feb. 29, 2000.

The ominous part is that this isn't the first time scientists have discovered that THC shrinks tumors. In 1974 researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had been funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system, found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice -- lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.

The DEA quickly shut down the Virginia study and all further cannabis/tumor research, according to Jack Herer, who reports on the events in his book, "The Emperor Wears No Clothes." In 1976 President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who set out -- unsuccessfully -- to develop synthetic forms of THC that would deliver all the medical benefits without the "high."

Hmm DEA shuts down study well gee willikers Cap'n Whizzbang How comes dey do dat?

i dont want to see your opinions i want a link or something with some facts .all i been reading in this thread is a bunch of christian hoopla .not all of us are christian and anyways half of this thread sounds like its straight out of Reefer Madness. its just ridiculous.



wow! This is a perfect example of how it effects your cognitive ability. The post above is exactly what she WROTE that she wants and none of it is from "christian" sites, yet it seems to have gotten lost in the smoke.
Jenny, see my post above your's. It is well-cited with links to non-christian research, which contain even MORE cites and links
Thanks, Jenny. There is nothing like a live demonstration to make a point. (profile states to the drug question >3 times a week, and under "dating interests" she has "smoking pot". Right on! Jen~ Ya think that you might be, shall we say "less than objective"?)
RE im(not)listening. 1974 study, huh? You have to go back 31 years, to find an incomplete study that MIGHT prove ONE (1) positive outcome from smoking pot?
And why hasn't that study been duplicated since? The studies are still ongoing but that one, if it ever actually existed, has never been replicated.
Choosing to hold onto that quality "evidence" in the face of hundreds of studies to the contrary is positively dogmatic to the point of appearing a faith-based belief. And you lecture long and loud about "cognition" issues....Right on to you too, Im (not)

Jenny Wawaaaaa! All I had to do was click on your profile and the first thing you offer all the fellow POFers when they click on it is the headline "BORED GIRL" as your "catch phrase". Then you read on the body of your description and you AGAIN start off the section with IM BORED. Then you go on to explain why you are bored and the fact that you sit around and smoke pot all the time. Hmmmm according to the logic in this thread AND your own you should be the most EXCITED, ELATED, DYNAMIC and ENLIGTHENED person around since your mind is so expanded to other realms, how do you even fit in boredom into the equation? I don't see how you would even have time to be bored when you are stoned and feeling so great all the time?? You guys really crack me up!

Secondly: I'm not Christian, nor do I follow any religion for that matter. In actuality some of the potsmokers on here who say GOD gave us fruit from the trees and we shall use it are Christina AND potsmokers. So your generlizations are waaaaaay off.

Thirdly get off your ASS off the playstation and go out there and do something instead of sitting at home and frying your brain. I guarantee you that will cure any "boredom"you feel. Can you actually enjoy a trip to an art gallery without frying your brain first? Can you enjoy a good bike ride in the Summer? Doubt it! Enjoy a good philosophical conversation with another human being who has his or her life experiences to mould them and make them into who they are today without having to fry that littl brain of yours first? I doubt it. You simply cannot enjoy what life has to offer... and let me fill you in on a little secret: boredom my dear...happens within. So if a potheat like you is bored all the time, and according to all the arguments on here pot just makes life better, then according to you logic there is REALLY no hope for any of us non por smokers!


shouldnt there be a study . like a real one .with science involved and all that good stuff.


There are tons of studies if you wish to read them I provided a few links on the previous pages from the BCC UK, Reuters, and MSNBC,(to name a few) all "scientist reports" on the mental effects and findings of negative effects of pot. But I see you chose to omit them since I didn't cut and paste for you the sections of articles....talk about lazyness, seems it's the only way to get you potheads to read. Go back and look for those... that should keep you busy for a bit and actually might even cure that boredom of yours.

By the way "Waaaa-Waaaa" you have NO idea what my life experience is. So don't tell me what I have and have not done because based on my opinions you ASSUME stuff. You seriously ARE clueless! have another toke...PLEASE!

^ I don't have time nor the desire to go through a whole website of some hippy who posted his personal threories. What I want is a first person answer to my question' from you, the real people on here. If your opinion is not good enough for me then maybe I'll check out what "Jack Herer" has to say. in the meantime you are all advocates for pot, tell me how we as a whole will benefit from legalizing it. Or is your brain that stripped that you cannot even form a constructive opinion unless you quote or provide a link to other people's opinions and theories? Just give it to me staright. the question is not a hard one if you truly believe in what you say you beleive!

What the government doesn't want is more chaos to clean up after on the streets. more mental deseases to cure, any more money allocated to cleaning up after the general disregard for our cities and towns by people under the influence of more chemicals. and that makes sense to me. Of course the gov does not think of our health they just look at the bottom dollar.

Pot heads still get your drugs so what is the big deal? People smoke pot EVERYWHERE. It's not like you can't get access to it. So in my books it makes not difference to my life by keeping it controlled or not. Just the other day I went down to the store and there was a guy in his thirties stoned out of his mind, he stunk of weed leaving trails behind whenever he moved. There was a very pegnant woman buying milk behind him with a (4 or 5) yr old child, my self and another guy waiting to pay for our products. He sat there for 10 mins trying to order a pack of smokes. I kid you not his song and dance of pointing and digging for his money and pointing and changing the brand then the size then the money, then counting the money...oh god this went on for 10 mins. The poor woman behind me was rubbing her lower back since it was clear she should not be on her feet. The guy finally gets it together then he goes to walk away and drops his money and all the change goes scattered all over the ground, so three more minutes until he picks all his shit up and so the woman at this point STILL cant pay. Well he finally walks away and leaves the smokes on the counter (which no one realised). The woman is about to pay for her milk and the guy comes back and asks the store owner, actually asks him if he just bought a pack of smokes there?? To which the store attendant tells him "yeah bud here they are you payed for them and forgot them"

It's funny to watch that in a movie, perhaps even funnier when you are sitting at home stoned watching that scene develope but to have to operate through life with a bunch of moronic individuals that just slow everything down. NO THANK YOU!

yeaaaahhh what about them? can you out all those words into a thought or is that too much to ask?



Well I got news for ya, a lot of people are idiots and Drugs have nothing to do with it.


exactly! it's those very same people we don't need to see multiply like****oaches when lights go off. It's the children that are being expose to drugs that cannot handle them that we need to protect. It's the people with deperession and the propensity towards other clinical mental disorders that we don't need to help manifest. Hemp is already being used for whatever is necessary to our lives the only way it is NOT being accepted is as a mind altering substance.
There is a reason for that and YOU fail to see it.

First of all, it's a joke! I like sarcasm and it's obvious I like to joke around as you have seen in all of my whole profile. It's a funny line which I say all the time! Who doesn't have bad memories they would like to forget? That is life that is what makes life so diverse in the emotions it evokes. If you can't understand the humour and the truth in that statemen it never ceases to amaze me just how closed minded you pot smokers are proving to be!
Funny you only checked out my profile when I did that first to one of you and had to comment on what was on there. You never really thought of doing that until I did!!! Interesting how creative you are when you have to follow other's footsteps!

Secondly, I was born catholic, went to catholic school and I still believe in god but I don't practice religion at all the last time I went to church was in grade 9. I don't read "christian literature or listen to christian music" sorry my life does not revolve around god! What if I meet a jewish or a muslim man on here who is also looking for a woman of their same religion? I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking I was born under anything else than Catholicism. Do I still practice religion today? nope I don't. I'm not athiest but I am also not a devout Catholic either.


I have no reason to lie about who I am. I am very comfortable in who I am and I don't need to advocate something that only benefits ME. I'm not bored, or empty or closed minded or any of the things one "should" be according to drug user's accusations of non users.

IMListening, you are REALLY reaching for stuff now...careful you might hurt someone, afterall you are taking a lot of "stabs in the dark" here


andTreq I've read that and addressed it I told you they are ALREADY using hemp for all those things, what they will not do is ACCEPT it for personal use as a mind altering substance! So what is your point? and THAT is what is crmiminalized today and why this thread had been started. NO ONE is saying that hemp does not have any other useful properties! HEMP DOES have many useful properties. Thepoint of this thread was to see why why SMOKING POT is a crime, not why making hemp sweaters are! Wakey wakey!

I didn't attack I simply stated what was in her profile, which states through out the whole thing that she is BORED with everything, proving my point all along that pot smoking is for BORED individuals who have self inflicted depression and boredom. Furthermore if pot smoking is so mind expanding and enlightening why is this individual SO bored with her life yet she smokes often (2-3 X a week)???????????

well you are simply wrong. not only is there 0 basis to your logic you are making a huge accusation about me that you simply cannot back up. This shows your level of rationale and it also shows that you feel so threatened by my points of view that you have to resort to making things up in order to feel superior in some way. Petty.

Again I am very comfortable in who I am and why I am the way I am. I don't need to alter my mind with drugs to have an opinion or to expand my thoughts, and that really seems to bother you, doesn't it? It's amusing to see how much you can't accept that. I have found a way to expand my thoughts naturally, to see depth in life and beauty what surrounds me without having to use any sort of chemical stimulant and I guess that is why someone like you feels so threatened by that. because I have the power to do it without any external "help"from chemicals, I dont NEED the external help. It all comes from within. My creativity flows and I don't need to be high to express it. Sorry some of us have that gift and others don't. How that makes me a liar and hyporcrite is beyond me! Still laughing though...and I'm wide awake!

^^^Oh!I know all about pot-heads.Ask my brother who is in a wheel chair the rest of his life because of a frig-in pot-head.The only thing he was doing was waiting on his bus in the morning when some pot-head did not stop for a stop school bus.He was so fried out of his head that he told the cops that he thought it was a dump truck with a stop sign out on the side and that he did not have to stop.(Since when does a truck has a stop sign)Frigin pot-head talk.So those of you that say pot does not hurt nobody then you live in the land of oz.

well at least this thread was good for laughs

jennywawa: the question was why is pot a crime, NOT is boredom illegal. Boredom is a product of a stagnent mental state which pot will only perpetuate. And while living a life from your couch playing video games all day smoking pot is clearly your life choice, it's ironic that you complain about the very thing that pot smoking supposedly is here to save US "closed minded" people from: boredom! You are the epitome of my debate. And I think it makes people angry to see that I actually have a clear example that backs up everything I have been putting forth in my stance, right here in this very Forum.

I must admit there are some clear concise arguments put forth that I can appreciate but for the most part its just a bunch of stoners blindly pushing a joint down my throat and resorting to name calling and making up personal lies when I refuse to swallow it. That is where I part company and the ADD kicks in for me.


Anyway, as I say in my profile " I don't get bored all that much but when I do I just change the scenery."

I think it might just be about that time....

I have. If you missed and are STILL missing them then I can only recommnend you go back a few pages and read all the posts. I am not about to rehash it all again.

Not sure where these personal character attacks are that you mention...and I'd love for you to point them out to me.
