SCORPYYeah that is too true, but I know Id never give in
Unfortunately that's exactly what my bro said before entering the army, and he started smoking.....
L337-FuWeed is not the same as smoking in anyway. For one thing, and I dont understand why I must state the obvious here, if you take a puff from a cig your not going to get high. Thats when alot of the problems are caused, its alot like being drunk, only your sense of perception is even worse. Your mind can't function properly and your judgement is altered to where you can't make decisions clearly, often resulting in self-injury or unintentional injury to other persons. Thats not even to mention evidence from a study by the British Lung Foundation shows that tar from cannabis cigarettes contains 50% more cancer causing carcinogens than tobacco. Smoking just two or three joints is the equivalent of smoking twenty cigarettes. In smoking a joint the amount of poisonous carbon monoxide and tar entering the lungs is four times higher then the amount inhaled from smoking a cigarette. Im not trying to sound like your 8th grade health teacher here, just stating the facts. Tobacco is nowhere near as harmful as weed.
I have family working in the healthdepartment in the treatment of drug addicts program, and I have had a few discussions on cannabis with them. I have never heard of anything you are stating, nor have I heard anyone else talk about it. Could you please point me to the material you are basing this on?
The cream of the crop

the only drugs ive taken are, Advil (once, i had a bad fever.... i get those sometimes) and a motion sickness thingy for an airplane ride...... i think thats it. you people wouldnt believe what herbs and vitimans can do to make you get better when you are sick.

Im basing it on a study done by the British Lung Foundation, stumbled upon the information in browsing the BBC website. Im sure youll find something on the organization if you google it.
"The report "A Smoking Gun" published today (11-11-02) by the British Lung Foundation, has been widely-reported in the media as showing cannabis to be many times more damaging to the lungs than tobacco cigarettes. The report claims that cannabis smoked today is much more potent than in the 1960s, and that reefers today contain 150mg THC, whereas in the 1960s they might contain 1% THC. The authors appear to rely on American studies where smoking patterns are very different from in Europe. Their warnings of potential dangers refer to theoretical studies, or individual case histories, with no epidemiological evidence which might provide reliable statistical evidence of any risk. This report contains no new research, and represents a selective interpretation of the scientific literature, with the most negative possible "spin" put on research findings of others. The authors of the report are not disclosed, neither is the source of funding for the report, leaving open the question of whether any conflicts of interest were involved."
I know i stick to my views, but ill NEVER do drugs
I'm against drugs, but I think its kind of stupid of people to say Marijuana is a gateway drug, one puff will ruin your life, etc.
Marijuana is pointless and so are other drugs, if you need to take em get a life :p
