Since my opponent did not define "pot", I will define it for him.

Cannabis, also known as marijuana, a preparation of the Cannabis plant intended for use as a psychoactive drug and as medicine. [1]

"Its Not Harmful"

It is harmful to the brain, and impairs concentration which can cause the same outcome as drink and driving. Aside from a subjective change in perception and mood, short-term effects include increased heart rate, increased appetite and consumption of food, lowered blood pressure, impairment of short-term and working memory, psychomotor coordination, and concentration. Long-term effects are less clear. A study published August 2012 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and funded partly by NIDA and other NIH institutes provides objective evidence that, marijuana is harmful to the brain, at least for adolescents. It was found that the persistent use of marijuana before age 18 showed lasting harm to a person's intelligence, attention and memory. Quitting cannabis did not appear to reverse the loss. However, individuals who started cannabis use after the age of 18 did not show similar declines. [1]

"Pot Can be Used In a Medical Way ro Release pain And Frustration."

Marijuana can be used medically, but it does not relief frustration. Cannabis used medically has several well-documented beneficial effects. Among these are: the amelioration of nausea and vomiting, stimulation of hunger in chemotherapy and AIDS patients, lowered intraocular eye pressure (shown to be effective for treating glaucoma), as well as general analgesic effects (pain reliever). [1] However, this beneficial effect is not as big as its harmful effects, such as impairments to concentration and intelligence.

"I Personally Believe Everyone Should Smoke A Joint But Others Disagree With My methods."

I disagree as it can be harmful to smoke marijuana unless you have proper medical knowledge.

Reasons for voting decision: From a medical point of view, if a pot is dropped onto someone's head, there would be great cerebral damage. To deliberately drop a pot onto someone's head is to commit murder. I can understand why you forfeited. It is most probably because you had a pot dropped on your head.
