Yes, it is very good for you. I mean, you don't want kids flipping out or being really hyper all the time, and when they smoke, they are very calm. So why not smoke? People aren't as stressed as the people who do smoke. Also, if kids are allowed to smoke I don't think you would have a lot of teens committing suicide.
Look I realize that many of our own parents tried the drug before they had us, even my father smokes to this day. First of all there are studies that prove that marijuana in and of itself does not make a person stupid, rather than lazy while intoxicated. I have smoked for over four years, I have maintained a 4.3 gpa, throughout college and through law school. And one of my buddies works in California cannabis dispensary and has done research for the state. He told me that yes it can hurt your lungs, but their are many different ways the body can consume THC. However, one main thing is that cannabis can help with depression, pain management, psychosis, and many other diseases and disorders. Also many recent studies link marijuana with a reduction in Alzheimer's. Not only does marijuana prevent Alzheimer's, but also helps prevent cancer, heart attacks, and help prevent insulin developed diabetes. I realize people see marijuana as a gateway drug but their are NO proven studies that link Marijuana with being a so-called "gateway drug". Agree or disagree you cannot look away from the facts.
Not only is it good for people being used as a MEDICATION for: nausea, insomnia, pain, depression, epilepsy, glaucoma, cancer treatment, and MANY other ailments...
It would also be good for the economy/governments to regulate and tax it.
We would reverse our nations national debt within a decade if the government regulated and taxed marijuana.
Contrary to popular opinion, it improves concentration and DOES NOT inhibit school performance (unlike OTHER man-made substances which DO).
However, it DOES inhibit cancer cell reproduction and growth.
It is NOT a "gateway drug" that's like saying if you drink water you'll have to move on to moonshine. People who say that are STUPID.
It DOES NOT kill brain cells, (lack of oxygen kills brain cells).
And to top all of this off: IT WAS MADE BY GOD (not man- thank god).
So which is better? A man-made chemical which alters mind-state? Or a god-made plant which does much more than altering mind-state?
And the earth brought forth grass and herb yielding seed after its kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:12) (see, even GOD said ITS GOOD)
God said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so." And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Gen. 1:29-31) (wow, this time, GOD does JUST say ITS GOOD, he says: ITS VERY GOOD. Hmmm..... AND.. Notice how these "herbs bearing seed" are to be used AS MEAT for us to CONSUME? That means me to my last biblical point...)
"The Spirit speaketh expressly, that IN THE LATTER TIMES, some shall depart from the faith..., and COMMANDING TO ABSTAIN from MEATS which GOD HAS CREATED to be RECEIVED with THANKSGIVING of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereupon thou hast attained. (Paul: 1 Timothy 4:1-6)
(So... GOD created MEAT (green herbs bearing seed) for us to RECEIVE in thanksgiving of HIM. BUT... In the "latter days" men will COMMAND ABSTINENCE from these "meats"...)
TO USE THE WORDS OF GOD: IT IS VERY GOOD.
I mean of course its good for you it helps you with pain and stress at the same time. It is way healthier than popping pills and its not addicting like the other countless types of drugs out there. And honestly how many people have you heard of that has overdosed of marijuana?
I have smoked for over 25 years as often as possible for a pain disorder. I had taken hydrocodone for over 12 years as well. After 2 deaths in 6 months from an overdose of hydrocodone last year I stopped taking the hydro. My memory cleared after a month or so, my pain was the same before and after. After all these years pot still lessens the pain. When I can find or get it that is. My function level is better when I smoke as well. I have a younger brother that has a heart condition, he never really smoked pot but he drank often. I have an even younger sister who smoked cigarettes but not pot, she has a weight condition, I dont and she has a heart condition and bad lungs as well. From cigarettes her doctor says. Other than my severe or chronic stenosis I am VERY healthy at 59 years of age. I dont know maybe the proof is in the herb....
Any discussion about whether marijuana is good, should be accompanied by a comparison to an alternative way of achieving same results. Otherwise, the opinion is just a preference and not a convincing argument.
For me, to alleviate stress I have 3 options: Take chemical meds, smoke pot, or do something like yoga and breathing exercises.
Admittedly the last one is quite effective and my favorite - unfortunately I don't always have time to do it.
However between chemical meds and pot, I definitely experienced far less side effects using pot. Most of the chemical meds have some serious side effects with a big list of risk factors. I am not saying pot is side effect free - but in comparison, it seems you get more of what you need and less of what you don't need from pot.
Unlike alcohol and prescription drugs, marijuana is not lethal by overdosing.
A study in 2009 by U.S. Department of Health and Human Studies published that 69.7 million Americans are current users of tobacco products, 15 million Americans abuse alcohol, and only 4.2 million Americans abuse Marijuana.
Everyday 1,000 people die from smoking related illnesses, 550 die from alcohol related accidents and diseases, and less than 20 die of drug related causes.
Legalization may not cause a spike in use as critics acclaim. American adolescents use Marijuana twice as much as their counter parts in Holland where Marijuana is legal.
Marijuana has changed my life. I smoke every other day and I have to say I haven't felt better. I think the people who say it is bad are very ignorant and narrow minded. I am glad I live my life the way I do. You only got one life. Have fun!
I am usually very stressed out and depressed when I'm not high... When I smoke I feel like a different person. I'm laughing, not depressed, and my stress figures itself out! I love smoking because I can still function when I'm high--I don't act all stupid and I'm a nice person to be around.
It's the best for you, it makes me do things I normally wouldn't do. I'm not grouchy as much, I feel better, relaxed, very calm. And when it comes to it I'm very honest with it. I don't see anything bad about it. First of all try it and then see if it doesn't change your life.
For my condition I have two choices: smoke marijuana or take pain meds. If I take my pain meds the doc prescribes before I go to bed at night, in the morning I feel dizzy, nauseous, and sick... No I do not have any allergies to the meds just the side effects of the pain meds prescribed to me and those effects hamper me at my job. Now if I smoke I wake up pain free and the side effects I get from my pain meds I don't get from smoking a bowl or two at night.
Marijuana helped me study better and retain class-related data for university exams. Pot also assisted whenever I wrote papers, presentations or creative pieces. I was able to organize and develop ideas much better at least two hours after smoking the drug. I have ADD, so I found marijuana to be very helpful while studying for my degree in creative writing and history. Some argue that marijuana affects the cognitive areas of the brain, but I don't think this is true. However, marijuana should not be used on a daily basis - perhaps three for four times a week - unless you are using cannabis to assist with a serious condition such as cancer.
First of all we the people made marijuana a big deal. For the people who have never smoked it you'll never understand. Marijuana is amazing, its the only thing I know that can turn a real bad day into a good one and just make you happy for no reason. Weed wouldn't be a gateway drug if the people had never made it one. Just for everyone's information our government now allows you to buy and sell your weed on the stock market.
In my opinion, enjoyment of life is the most important aspect of a person's life. Don't try to argue with me about the fact that pot makes you happy. And whoever said marijuana is 4 times as bad as a filtered cigarette, get your facts right before you make statements that have no substance whatsoever. Correct me if i'm wrong, but I don't think there are such things as nicotine brownies. Marijuana does not create physical dependency the way nicotine or alcohol does. No fatalities have occurred as a direct result to marijuana. It relieves stress, helps with pain, and for me anyway, it makes me a happier nicer person to be around.
From personal research, though I do not personally use, I have come to the conclusion that marijuana is not only safe to use recreationally but also good for many medical ailments. I do not believe it will become legal because there are many more background forces coming into play regarding its illegality than most realize. Pharmaceutical companies fight it because of its benefits, as the old adage says "they create customers not cures". Hospitals inject people with poison to cure cancer, but refuse to give them marijuana which can have a much safer effect on cancer. Police unions, prison employees, lawyers, judges, many people make their living from marijuana being illegal. Drug cartel leaders are thankful for the drug being outlawed, and actually lobby to keep it that way. Prohibition works swell for organized crime.
Research the subject yourself and come to your own conclusion. I may suggest watching the documentary "The Union".
Https://www.Facebook.Com/pages/The-Truth-About-Cannabis/371805472889289. Do yourselves a favor and check it out. Cannabis is 100% safe and would need an unheard of amount (15,000 POUNDS in 30 mins) to overdose. There has never been a single recorded death from cannabis..At all.. Period. Cannabis oil has a 96% success rate CURING cancer patients, whereas 70% of chemo patients die after agonizing treatment. Do not let your uneducated ignorance keep people from living normal, pain free lives!
From migraines to cramps, anxiety to depression, chronic pain to cancer, mental issues like Autism, ADD, ADHD, and so much more... Cannabis has never killed anyone! Can we say that about Alcohol or pills (prescription or OTC)... Not to mention nationally America could get some of that debt knocked down we owe EVERYONE and income provided to each state! Check out Cannabis Clue on Facebook for more helpful info.
As a college student, when I am trying to do extensive studying, I smoke a blunt and get to work! I am able to accomplish a lot, and It helps me focus better. I work better in every situation when I smoke. Not saying one should overuse it, but whenever I smoke, it makes me feel a lot better. It also brightens my day.
Marijuana can be very beneficial to someone, especially when used medically. many people with cancer and terminal illnesses use cannabis and forms of cannabis to harness the THC inside it. THC has been shown to stop the growth of cancer cells. It can stimulate the appetite of someone who is on chemotherapy for cancer treatment. It can also be used to treat depression, anxiety, pain, and Chrohn's disease. Marijuana can be good for you, indeed.
There are many circumstances where marijuana is very beneficial to people. For example, medical marijuana helps people with glaucoma, cancer, anxiety, etc. It helps relieve pain and calm down one's nerves. It has also been proven that smoking marijuana actually stops the growth of cancer cells. So, marijuana is very good for you.
For medical reasons I believe Marijuana can prove a very potent drug, for everyday use as in a party or some sort of event I do not believe so. Though one could justify economically bringing in more capital, using it as a drug only could bring in more capital to our suffering economy as well. Though like anything else it can be misused so I see no reason not to legalize it, the way I feel people will find ways to get their hands on what they desire and it's like this: "Tell a chid to take a bath and the child will not, tell a child not to take a bath and the child will."
It helped cure my depression. It can help stop the growth of cancer cells. It can help prevent getting fat. And all in all, it makes you feel good. It opens up new doors to your mind. It can also help you become an expert farmer. Good money. It makes you feel amazing.
Marijuana has a lot of medical uses (for example pain relief, treatment of glaucoma, treatment of insomnia and many more...), it's also much less dangerous than tobacco or alcohol. It's impossible (well, it is theoretically possible, but not practically) to overdose from marijuana. The amount of marijuana needed for an overdose is insane. But still, everything in moderation!
It has many health benefits, it helps you be more calm, look at the world differently and be more creative. It is better for you then alcohol, I don't even think anyone has died from the weed itself. Alcohol and cigarettes kill people, that is a fact. Weed is illegal because it could harm the US government and it's corporations with many other purposes the plant itself can serve.
Cannabis has a lot more positives than negatives,
It cures cancer which is a big plus, while doctors just prescribe a load of pills which either knock you out cold, or make you feel like a vegetable, and by the way, what chemicals are used in those drugs, the names on the back are stated which are probably half of the details the pharmers want to tell you about.
Where cannabis is in pure version which grows from the ground just like any other plant, it cures loads of ill people, its gives away pain relief, through relaxation of the muscles.
A big plus point for the government, the would be able to control it a lot more too, due to ID being required, which kids don't have, but the dealers these days don't care who they sell it to. It would be profitable for the country too which is something the politicians love, instead of loosing millions on raiding farms, they could earn it.
If cannabis was to be legal, it might make it more unexcessible for kids, just like alcohol and cigarettes due to being asked for ID, which would mean less children would smoke, some people would grow it, but most wouldnt, whats the point waiting all that time when they sell cannabis in the shops itself,
Would be alot more profitable too never the less.
Medical side of the plant is amazing too, cannabis is a great gift from nature which could be used in everyday products, like hair products for example.
There are alot more positive facts about the plant then, negative
People should give it Marijuana a chance
Smoking weed is a unifying drug which unites brothers and sisters, "puff puff pass". This is being practiced all over, and when people have this one thing in common, they tend to connect in a friendly zone. Weed has its specialty in many ways, it can help in weight control, depression, and etc...
The reason why is that not only is it good for you but it can help in many ways I know peaple that do It and still are acting normal and are Happy then ever and the peaple who disagree try it and you will how it would change you and prove you wrong
There are many reasons why marijuana is beneficial to certain patients. Marijuana reduces depression and relives many types of pains. There also hasn't been a single death attributed to marijuana. The benefits outweigh the negatives which are only caused by the method of consumption. Smoking marijuana may cause harm to your lungs because of the particles that are being pushed against your lungs. Other means of consumption are far less unhealthy than smoking it.
Listen I have only smoked weed once, and it helps me chill-ax, I can focus, and I hear that it cures some types of cancer and things like that. I have gotten more sleep using it and you CANNOT die from using this herbal majesty. Sure some people say its bad for you, and you can go to jail, well like this if you think it should be legalized!!!
I've been using marijuana occasionally for 3 years. I've never gotten addicted to it and it has enhanced my life in a number of ways. It helps me sleep, it gives me more creativity and it helps me to be more positive and happy. I have never done anything dangerous or risky while using marijuana and I don't see any harm in this healing plant.
Think of all the dangerous painkillers that get prescribed to innocent patients? A lot of the patients that get prescribed these painkillers eventually become addicted to them and have withdrawals if they don't take them when they need them. Marijuana is a much safer alternative. There is no way you can say I am wrong. 100,000 people die a year from prescription drug abuse in the United States alone. No one people have ever died from smoking marijuana.
People are saying that if you smoke Marijuana it can get rid of stress, help fight off infections. It can also help people who have cancer, ADHD, Bipolar, Cramps, and it also helps you sleep. It is a proven fact that you can not die from smokeing this substance. Some people who smoke this feel much more happy, an calm in difficult times.
Its is great for you for a many of reasons, it is a relaxors when its comes to anger and stress. Brings out hormones in the right side of the mind to become more artistic. Helps multiple viruses such as glacoma, cnacer, cramps, adhd, bipolar, helps irritating sleep patterns. It is absoulty great for you
How many people die from tobacco? 5,000,000 a year. How many from pot? None. Zero. Nada. BOOM. LEGALIZE. Marijuana is a plant , not a drug. Let the people decide how they want to live their lives. If it was dangerous why would they give it to cancer patients. I know someone that lived longer when he had cancer because of pot. Make your own choices. Don't let the government make all your decisions for you. Legalize. Thanks.
Many people still today, unfortunately, believe marijuana to be a highly addictive and Dangerous "drug." New Scientific research however, has proven that if you smoke a joint a day for a year the cannabis smoke has no harm on your lungs. Also another common myth that is often debated is "Marijuana kills brain cells" that is highly inaccurate, the study that "proves" this claim essentially suffocated the monkey what they did was pumped the monkey with the equivalent of 63 joints in five minutes for 90 days. New scientific research suggest that marijuana actually stimulates brain cell growth but since the US Government is so corrupt that idea kind of got swept under the rug.
The drug war keeps using scare tactics to make people think it's bad for you, when in reality it's only bad when you have too much of it. People are dying from cancer every year, and scientists had proven that marijuana when used for medical purposes, can actually reduce cancer rates. It should be legal because of those reasons, and innocent people get arrested for simple possession of it.
Marijuana has changed my life for the better. It makes me feel great and has opened my eyes up to so much in this life. It changes your perspective but not who you are. If everyone smoked in the world, it would be a much much far better place. Yes.
Any aches or pains I have are gone after a few pulls. It's better than any painkiller medicine I've had, but that's in my case. My health hasn't declined since I started smoking pot (which was a long time ago lol) and as long as I don't go overboard I can still concentrate and function. I've heard it's also good for social anxiety and depression.
I am a 13 year old girl and i just started smoking weed. I admit i am young yet but it helps me be more social and happy. I feel good after smoking it. I don't over do it though , just once or twice a week. And it certainly helps with stress and a lot more. I go through a lot in life (family problems, school work etc.) and I will suggest people stop speaking bad about marijuana as it does no harm to one's body!
Pot makes you more relaxed so you don't have the time to go and get in trouble or arrested. It makes people think beyond what the usual mind can go. It is an escape from reality to a world of peace and harmony. It makes everyone friendly and social it is. It does not lead to other drugs if you don't let it.
They're so many uses for the hemp plantI have a 19 year old brother who was born with 9 different heart defects and the doctors said he wouldn't live past 3 and that he wouldn't be able to do anything physical activity drugs nothing. He started smoking marijuana at the age of 14 and he's about to turn 19. The doctors said that they would rather him use marijuana. They said it took the stress off of his heart so he might be able to live a long and healthy life thanks to marijuana. I've done my research and it can help with so many thing anxiety, stress, pain, and its a natural herb I'd rather have my son use marijuana than cigarettes and alcohol

It is good for you IF only used for the CBD, the medical part of marijuana. THC is what gets you high. Marijuana is one of the best, if not THE best, medicine available if strains high in CBD and low in THC are used for/by the patient. It is very useful for people who are hurt/unaffected by regular medicines. Way too many modern 'medicines' are dangerous/lethal.
The only reason why marijuana can be bad for you is the fact that when you smoke it, you're inhaling smoke. But that will happen if you inhale any type of smoke, whether it be from MJ or from a forest fire. That can be easily avoided by using a vaporizer or using it orally (Ingesting it straight, pill form, liquid, etc)
Knowledge is power.
Once the American People, and I'm sure many countries know, how pot was demonized, just because of greed.
See the film RUN FROM THE CURE.
Look up up the cannabinoid system, it is a lock and key system everyone has. How many cancer patients will be devastated, along with their families, once they hear the truth?
Ad us, even my father smokes to this day. First of all there are studies that prove that marijuana in and of itself does not make a person stupid, rather than lazy while intoxicated.

To paint a picture life not on weed is like living everyday with sunglasses on but on weed you see everything clearly and it seems to make everything better and it can prevent and cure many diseases the cons of weed are dumb and the government could make so much money off of weed but they're too dumb to open there eyes and smoke a bowl
I am an occasional user of marijuana and have friends that smoke it daily, so I feel I have a good viewpoint on which to form an opinion. As I said before, I only use marijuana occasionally, at social gatherings or on a 'chill' Saturday night. I use it like I do alcohol, and alcohol is much, much more damaging to my health. Marijuana puts you in a good state of mind, peaceful. It relieves pain and anxiety and is a genuine feel-good drug, with no bad after effects. The common argument against usually includes the fact that smoking anything is bad for you. Firstly, who says you need to smoke it?! Secondly, when smoked by itself, marijuana does considerably less damage to your lungs and throat. Studies have also suggested that cannibol may have cancer-killing properties. Then there is the even more ridiculous argument that marijuana is a 'gateway drug'. Of all my peers who use marijuana regularly none, and I mean none have even considered using any harder drug, as all are completely content with marijuana. I for one cannot see any reason why marijuana should be illegal, especially when alcohol is used by so many people so regularly.
I can see how it is good for you for medical reasons, but side effects are more overwhelming than the reasons on why it is good for you. About 40% of teens under 18 years of age that use marijuana get into harder drugs like cocaine. It makes you hallucinate, you become very hungry and don't stop eating. It hurts your short term memory so it's very hard to learn anything new if anything at all. Many years ago in some places like Egypt it was banned because it proved to be not good for them. As I mentioned, I can see how it can be good for some medical uses, but overall it hurts the brain and also gives the lungs 4 times the amount of tar than one filtered cigarette.
Marijuana is a horrible drug that should never be used other than for serious medical conditions. To think that a DRUG is good for you is just out of my understanding. The majority of the people who are saying that marijuana is good for you are the pot smokers themselves.
Marijuana is not good for you because it is a gateway drug that can lead to much worse drugs. Once a person feels the high that pot gives you, they are addicted to that feeling. Once pot will not give them that any more, then they have to move to another drug that will.
Kids all around the world have been killed because the use of weed. A 14 year old girl died because her friends pressured her to eat a it because she was sick so they thought that if she ate some weed she would get much better but the next few days she died and its bad to have those types of friends. If you were a mother and that happened to your little young girl you would be mad and want to report them for the use of it but if we don't legalize it we can still do that.
With all the side effects like loss of memory, poor performance in school, the issue of causing bronchitis and cancer and many more, Marijuana is not good for me and for for you though I can not make a choice for you not to use it. For teenagers and those who desire to be successful in their studies and work, please stay away from it, the euphoria which people experience is for a short time, when the effects are worn off, they find themselves with the same financial problems, and what ever they are trying to run away from. I strongly feel it is not worth it.
I am not only saying marijuana is bad for you but they also saying they shouldn't legalize it either because if we did we would have a lot of people smoking it and when you have a new born kid and he comes out from the hospital he will be breathing in weed which could lead to a shorter life period.
Young people's brains are still developing, and the dopamine release that a high gives the brain is addictive and tells the brain that it needs more. If this addiction becomes habitual from a young age, it affects the person for a very long time, because the high that they get from marijuana is the only thing that they are interested in, in turn affecting education, jobs, hobbies, and relationships. Not to mention anything you inhale through smoke is dangerous for your lungs and can cause lung cancer. It does not matter that cannabis is "natural." Tobacco is "natural" too and not many people argue that that's healthy either. Smoking anything is bad for you, period.
If you have to burn somthing and prepare it specially, it cant be good for you -.-
not to mention it has no medicinal effect that you can't get from a legal drug, in a safer and more effective way, just pot heads tired of getting arrested for it, we shouldn't just say what the hell and legalize it, its wrong for a reason.
Where to begin?! Smoking weed is bad for you because if you're a male its can reduce your sperm count and sperm motility! So if you want your future kids to be healthy and not have health issues like mental abnormalities and an increase risk at having leukemia then by all means carry on smoking it. As for women who smoke weed can upset your menstrual cycle. Plus, for heavy marijuana smokers suffer from brain abnormalities and bronchitis, an inflammation of the respiratory tract. And study shows that smoking just ONE joint is worst for your lungs than FIVE cigarettes smoked one after the other.
So if your want your children to be born healthy without an additional risk of leukemia and for a chance for YOU to live longer then don't smoke marijuana, and if you're smoking pot now, stop.
Some individuals tend develop a certain dependency on the herb to balance out their emotions, deal with certain situations, or release the stress, without letting the body take the natural process to cope with this. Later on, the body or mind would grow accustomed to this and it will take the person much longer to relax if they try to do so without the drug.
The 'high' you get from marijuana gives you a kind of unnecessary adrenaline rush, like the energy drinks, but this along with other chemicals that work together can cause brain cell damage and memory loss over time.
