Benificial for what? Do you mean a specific condition or just bumming out?
Kreakin says2015-03-29T20:57:23.0325561-05:00
It's certainly not benificial to general health if thats what you mean.
Stefy says2015-03-29T21:06:36.9061280-05:00
It can be. Especially medically.

Lately there's been a lot of drug related polls.

There are a few positives to marijuana, but there is a lot of negatives most of which we are only recently learning.

@Mathgeekjoe Or maybe you're being stupid and ignorant for believing in the anti-drug propaganda.

Hey triangle, maybe you should look at some research being done today. You might notice some recent studies on brain structure and memory. I know marijuana has some benefits and I like the fact that we are researching them. Some people get some help from using marijuana but that doesn't mean that there aren't side effects. I think the best thing about medical marijuana is that it 'tends' to have weaker side effects than most prescription drugs. But I am highly against anybody smoking marijuana since third hand smoke is a real problem. I am also highly against recreational use of marijuana. But I am not against a state I am not in legalizing it, I personally like the research that is being done in states like Colorado, the research is in the end going to be helpful no matter how you look at it. It would point out all the negatives as well as the positives. Now there are some very strong negatives, the one that most people don't notice is that marijuana worsens the side effects of alcohol and tobacco, making it dangerous and addictive. I would say you are the ignorant one for dismissing any and all negatives you hear. I would expect no less from a person who immediately calls someone stupid for having a different view.

You mentioned the extensive research being done in Colorado? Recreational marijuana is completely legal there... So, since you are against marijuana, where's the logic in that statement?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-03-30T16:36:54.7659358-05:00
I know marijuana is legal there, that was the research I was talking about, Colorado is one big experiment of marijuana's effect on society.
triangle.128k says2015-03-30T17:08:48.4755088-05:00
Where did you get that information off of? A school poster?
triangle.128k says2015-03-30T17:11:44.6922313-05:00
Marijuana doesn't worsen the side effects of alcohol. I'm not sure about tobacco but Marijuana actually weakens the brain damage of drinking too much alcohol. It's been discovered that alcoholics whom use marijuana have less brain damage and are over-all healthier than alcoholics whom don't use marijuana.
triangle.128k says2015-03-30T17:12:35.1801262-05:00
While it may have some negative effects, they are relatively short time. Marijuana's harm is comparable to caffeine, it's around as harmful as caffeine is, maybe a little more or less.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-03-30T17:13:16.2911806-05:00
The more recent studies I got from http://www.sciencedaily.com/. School posters tend to be outdated, I don't know how you could assume that recent research would be on them.
triangle.128k says2015-03-30T17:14:17.0139380-05:00
Are you interested in a debate on this topic?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-03-30T17:17:25.8699674-05:00
I would accept the debate.
Kreakin says2015-03-30T19:46:34.0726531-05:00
"Marijuana actually weakens the brain damage of drinking too much alcohol." That comment is simply stupid.
benhos says2015-03-30T20:38:58.8378779-05:00
@Kreakin It's actually true.
Kreakin says2015-03-30T21:11:43.2309030-05:00
Kreakin says2015-03-30T21:13:17.6214829-05:00
Unless you mean that when you smoke when drunk you throw up violently and rid your stomach of any remaining alcohol.
DKmoon says2015-04-01T04:28:38.7489528-05:00
I think Pot should be legalized but only under prescription. It's very useful for medical reasons but excessive used can put someone in danger.
