I've been a loyal smoker for years now....I still prefer the dro and purple haze....it's all good though....I don't trip out anymore and I have to smoke more to get a good high....I sit in class sometimes blasted out of my mind thinking of pointless shyt....It's pretty interesting if you think about it.

I've been smoking for more than 35 years now and yes, it fucks up your memory and yes it is psychologically addictive, I don't care what anyone says. Just ask a woman whose man hasn't smoked in a while.. yeah, the man slipped into a funk that only is escaped with more pot! 35 years.. it's real kids!

Health Risk Myths and Realities

<In fact, DEA head Thomas Constantine recently stated in a Washington Times interview that "Many times people talk about the nonviolent drug offender. That is a rare species. There is not some sterile drug type not involved in violence who is contributing some good to the community; that is ridiculous. They are contributing nothing but evil."
Some people make me laugh at their stupidity. I work as a CNA and am going through nursing school, i will graduate next year, at the top of my class. I am totally anit-violence, pro-choice, pro-gay rights etc. I promote peace when ever i can, yet i also smoke pot everyday. I also know a whole bunch of other nurses, some that work in the ICU and one that is in anastesia, and Doctors that smoke pot on a regular basis, and you guessed it, they are some of the best nurses and doctors in the state. People should refrian from making statements that make them look like morons, and that have no truth behind it.
peace :peace:
AMEN!!!...i have had a wonderful life myself...owning and running my own business...stoned... :laugh2:..and i can remember the 10 dollar lid... :laugh2: :laugh2:

yeah weed can be addictive to some people. also can cause some lung damage. its is not as damaging as alcohol or tabacco. i saw a report on web md that shows that smoking marijuana does not show to cause cancer. even in those who smoke alot. there is more of a chance of getting a heart attack. ill try to look for them and post links

Marijuana Unlikely to Cause Head, Neck, or Lung Cancer

By Peggy Peck
WebMD Medical News

May 8, 2000 (Boston) -- Marijuana, unlike tobacco and alcohol, does not appear to cause head, neck, or lung cancer, says a researcher from Johns Hopkins Medical School in Baltimore who presented findings from a study here recently at a meeting of internal medicine physicians.

Pot Impacts Heart, Study Shows
By Peggy Peck
WebMD Medical News



March 2, 2000 (San Diego) -- The Woodstock generation is getting some very bad news: Marijuana smoking in middle age may trigger a heart attack in those who still indulge. Marijuana smokers increase their risk of having a heart attack almost five times within one hour of lighting up, according to a study presented here at an American Heart Association (AHA) meeting.

"This is the first documented link between marijuana and heart attack," says Murray A. Mittleman, MD, PhD, of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston.

Mittleman tells WebMD the spike in risk quickly decreases after an hour passes. Pot smokers are twice as likely as nonsmokers to have a heart attack one to two hours after lighting up.

To put that increased risk in perspective, Mittleman says that the risk of heart attack increases 100 times when a couch potato decides to shovel snow, and it "increase 2.5-fold with sex."

Well, technically the myth has always been your SHORT term memory, and that would be your long term memory.

Fat Cells

One of the more ridiculous myths being circulated is that marijuana stays in your fat cells and can keep you high for months.
DAMN! if that was the case lol i would say on an average the normal smoker would blaze between 1 and 3 L's a year
