  • If cannabis & tobacco is smoked in equal weights then cannabis is worse. Tobacco these days has nothing like the tar content of cannabis, lets not even mention tobacco doesn't make some people severely mentally ill.

  • Putting any kind of smoke into your lungs is bad for you. But tobacco has some harmful chemicals in it that weed can't even compare to.

  • I don't think weed shortens your lifespan by 7 years, gives heart issues, causes cancer, etc.

  • Tobacco: Causes Cancer Weed: Cures Cancer Tobacco: 500,000 deaths a year (U.S.) Weed: 0 deaths EVER Tobacco: Harmful effects, some permanent Weed: Some harmful but only short term and not permanent Tobacco: Makes life miserable Weed: Relaxes and makes life good

  • Weed can be very good for you it keeps people calm it's help with cancer and they even got weed and medicine and tobacco on the other hand ain't good for you it gives people cancer and it is very bad for your lungs

  • tobacco gives cancer and all sorts of nasty diseases. weed is recreational, and only makes people relaxed and feelin good. it causes no sicknesses and is controllable. you cant really do anything super crazy while high. you also cant overdose or get a physical addiction. you may feel addicted in a sense of that you want to do it but not that you have to. that's the difference between a physical and mental addiction. look, things are gonna change. I'm 14 and many of my peers agree with my opinions. most of what I have said is fact. my generation will vote for complete legalization when the time comes and we or of the age to do so. that is what I believe.

Everyone's ignoring the facts about cannabis in fear it will be used against decriminalization. Facts are facts though and not being objective about it just makes cannabis legalization advocates look irrational harming their cause.
Plexon_Warrior says2015-07-23T17:44:28.8721964-05:00
Alone marijuana has worse effects than natural tobacco, but modern processed tobacco contains over 7,000 chemicals making it worse than marijuana.
Kreakin says2015-07-23T17:51:03.5666723-05:00
The quantities are similar in cannabis but much higher. Put 1 gram of tobacco through a clean pipe, then the same with 1 gram of cannabis and see which has more residue.

But the "tar" from marijuana can clear away quickly, you can even use a vaporizer to avoid it all together. Tobacco on the other hand has more permanent lasting tar that goes in your lungs.

When Colorado legalized it, the actual usage went down.

@tajshar2k The education is clearly trying way too hard to scare people from drugs, including marijuana. It does so in a way, that it inclines people to be curious to try them.
tajshar2k says2015-07-23T21:23:05.1890945-05:00
@triangle Exactly, when you keep tell people do not do it, people get curious. Its kinda like that stupid girl when she she's the do not enter sign on a haunted house. She's naturally curious.

It's also pretty ironic how US has a larger issue of drug addictions, despite the fact that we have the strictest drug laws.
triangle.128k says2015-07-23T23:27:43.1300885-05:00
Then people go on to blaming it on the Mexican drug cartels. As if they somehow convince millions to try cocaine.

Not only that, but according to the drug scheduling system, LSD and Marijuana are as bad as Heroin.
Theunkown says2015-07-24T00:41:10.4163611-05:00
US has the strictest drug laws? Try the Muslim world.

Believe it or not natural tobacco actually has medicinal benefits, the chemicals that cigarette companies add during processing is what makes tobacco so deadly these companies add thousands of harsh chemicals that can cause lung cancer and other health problems the paper they use to roll the tobacco also has many poisonous chemicals, Tobacco is not the demon that the mainstream media has made you think it is. People have used tobacco for medicine for centuries even more than they used cannabis. Not only is cannabis a mind altering substance affecting motorskills and judgement, it can also cause some people to panic and give other people anxiety and depression. The progressive/left wingers hate to admit but it is true. Cannabis is not nature's miracle and most people don't even use it for medicine in the first place, they use it simply to get high and party. I know people who lie about having pain or other medical problems so they can smoke cannabis and other people let their friends and family use their medicinal cannabis which is not only unethical but illegal in most jurisdictions.

But the "tar" from marijuana can clear away quickly - lol did you even think before you wrote that lol
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T01:59:23.3185072-05:00
Marijuana doesn't cause as much damage to your lungs, the damage is short lived. I've researched it before.

The level of naivety over cannabis is truly shocking. I guess it is Darwinism at work...
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:06:36.8383707-05:00
It can't be darwinism if cannabis hasn't killed anybody. Tobacco kills millions.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:09:55.0187810-05:00
Cannabis like tobacco doesn't kill people directly, it's the cancer, emphysema, COPD, etc which both cause that do that.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:11:39.7041100-05:00
If you think the hydrocarbons in cannabis smoke are not carcinogenic you are wrong.

triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:12:39.0165715-05:00
Cannabinoids actually have the potential to fight cancer, if ingested orally.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:14:13.7091785-05:00
Just Google it there is lots of info on cannabis and it's carcinogens. So you are saying once you get lung cancer you can stop smoking weed and eat it to cure yourself lol
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:15:18.8273019-05:00
I never said that, smoking doesn't have much medicinal value. There should be more research done on it's effects on cancer though. It's not fully confirmed but a small amount of studies have pointed towards it helping.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:16:20.6471922-05:00
And just so you know, there's very biased information on cannabis from both sides. One side is filled with nutheads that think it's the devil's flower. The other is filled with just as crazy people saying it's completely harmless and can replace every medicine in the pharmacy.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:18:17.3097019-05:00
I can say from experience, I grew and smoked daily for 17 years, that it will mess you up if you over do it.,
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:18:43.7932663-05:00
What did you smoke, weed or tobacco?
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:19:35.2549366-05:00
Northern lights no5 x Original haze
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:19:38.3152663-05:00
There are people that use weed ocassionally, like once a week or so and are fine. It's similair to moderate alcohol consumption. Most people do have a glass of wine or something every now and then.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:20:06.6916663-05:00
How much THC does that have, is it indica or sativa? And how frequently did you use weed?
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:20:34.5728976-05:00
There's a difference between complete alcohol addicts and moderate drinkers. The same way with complete stoners and moderate users of cannabis.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:25:25.1888261-05:00
NL5 is Indica and Haze is Sativa so it makes a good cross and is heavy yielding. Sedative yet high and not a colchicine hybrid. Generally smoked the bud and made pollem from the leaves in ice water and a fine gauze.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:26:47.0188663-05:00
But indica gives more of an anti-social and sleepiness high...
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:28:32.8648663-05:00
Is that a negative.. Sativas send people a bit nuts I think.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:33:34.7158958-05:00
How often did you smoke marijuana? What effects did you notice?
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:42:11.0377019-05:00
Daily, was all good for a while then about ten years ago I became paranoid so quit. Ok since not smoking, have mild copd though.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:43:26.9533648-05:00
Smoking weed daily isn't moderate consumption, that's quite frequently.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:44:41.2778592-05:00
I never knew anyone that smoked that didn't smoke daily.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:45:19.8596700-05:00
You might not have known, but many people don't smoke daily.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T19:53:44.0466970-05:00
I met a lot of stoners over the years and generally it's a lifestyle. Honestly can't think of one occasional smoker, people either started and smoked alot or tried it and didn't like it.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:58:25.3770970-05:00
Occasional smokers aren't just going to bring up the topic of weed like that. A person that says "yo i smoke weed, weed is the best thing, it's a great medicine" or whatever, that's the person who's likely a stoner.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:58:51.7722970-05:00
And what country do you live in? Because weed is illegal in most countries. (It's ironically legal in North Korea..)
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T19:59:17.9646970-05:00
Since weed is illegal, many people would be smart enough to not tell anybody they use it.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T20:01:56.3231000-05:00
No one really cared tbh, as long as you don't deal it's never been a priority for the uk police, they have more serious crimes to solve.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T20:03:40.9334295-05:00
I knew someone who was offered ounces of weed to grass up heroin dealers, he said he didn't take it though as he didn't know any.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T20:03:49.5923740-05:00
But like I said, people that occassionally use it won't say "hey I smoke marijuana" like that.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T20:04:31.2438970-05:00
I wish US was like that... We have very strict drug laws here, nearly the strictest drug laws in the developed world. The police will probably arrest you if you admit to using weed.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T20:04:52.6158970-05:00
They are prob the party smokers that go white after two puffs.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T20:08:33.8550970-05:00
If you smoke on the streets here they will take it away and give you a Cannabis warning.
triangle.128k says2015-07-26T20:12:25.7416124-05:00
But people that smoke marijuana occasionally like in parties isn't any different from people that drink wine occassionally.
Kreakin says2015-07-26T20:15:15.3210970-05:00
You have a very different police approach, I can see why people want it decriminalized. I would too if the Police hassled people for it over here. Getting arrested for smoking some weed is not cool and pretty disproportionate.
steven8 says2015-07-26T23:04:12.8246666-05:00
We're decriminalizing cannabis, while we're demonizing tobacco. People who are pro cannabis often complain about their right to smoke it, and freedom etc. while at the same time you're taking that freedom away from tobacco smokers. That's hypocritical. What about the people who only smoke occasionally? I actually smoke tobacco a few times per year and I only drink once or twice a year, on thanksgiving or my birthday etc. yes tobacco has more tar build up, but only if you are a frequent smoker. There are people who have been smoking tobacco for 30 years and have no health problems, did you know that? The political/media establishment in this country treats tobacco users like violent criminals, while they praise and cheer potheads... You know what? I actually like women who are not afraid to smoke tobacco on rare occasions.
