I find it hard to believe smoking anything is going to be good for your lungs. Smoke is just simply an irritant, burning anything is going to deposit something unwanted in your lungs and risks some form of damage. I know there is no great body of evidence out there at the moment, i'll give that a decade or two, but there are plenty of other ways of getting cannabis into you i'd rather people used.

I tried it back in high school a few times but did not like it.
Unlike taking a few drinks it seemed to take over my mind
which I did not like.

I know a few people who have used it a long time but it seems
the results have been negative in their lives.

I'm against making it legal for recreational use. We have enough trouble already in society.

Jerry Brown spoke out against making it legal several years ago.
He still is: http://www.mercurynews.com/californi...ng-pot-because

One of the arguments, however, is that prohibition creates more and bigger problems than it's legality would.

I know it sounds very paradoxal, but from experience I can tell you that it works. Incredibly well at that. Better than all the asthma medication I've tried.

And no, eating it doesn't give the same effect. Since with smoking it gets directly to the lungs, it is far, far more effective than ingesting cannabis antohr way.

Why would one follow the other? There's plenty of recreational users that don't cause trouble.

There's plenty of alcohol users that do cause trouble. Should we ban alcohol as well then? And would that stop people from drinking it?

Sounds like saying abstinence is the best sex ed.

This is terribly illogical reasoning, you know. You're essentially saying, "I don't like it, and some people I know do and their lives aren't great, so let's not bother changing the status quo." As if the whole of humanity can be observed through your little web of friends and acquaintances.

It may work well for you but medically it is very well documented that marijuana smoke is an irritant to lungs and that marijuana smokers suffer from many of the same ailments as tobacco smokers (though not lung cancer). Persistent coughs, phlegm, decreased immune function of the lungs, etc. That's not at all under dispute.

I'm not saying it should be banned - I have no issue with legalization as I've said. But it does have a negative effect on the lungs which is actually just plain old common sense.

I've always seen myself as fairly indifferent as to the legalization of it (though I strongly support de-criminalization at a minimum) and I think it has to do with the fact that I don't particularly see it as an important policy issue facing the society at large. It's sort of one of those things where I would not oppose legalization, but I certainly wouldn't devote any time or energy to getting it done since I put a very low priority on it in relation to the million other things that we could/should be focussing on politically.

I see the legalization and de-criminalization battles as being side-by-side, and with the tremendous resources wasted on the issue year in and and year out being a very legitimate issue with marijuana laws, I think supporting legalization is important.

But important to what extent? Passively supporting it or making it a major election issue? I guess I just don't see it as a particularly valuable means of expending one's political capital.

You don't have to make it the crowning issue. It should be part of a larger agenda about better using resources.

I didn't have that foggy doped up feeling and pondered for sometime just how the hell I was going to get to Ca. to get some more. Having been in pain everyday for years now, I cannot find any downside to this with the exception of drug testing for employment. I was thrilled to read last week that there is a bill before the Alabama legislators to legalize medical mj for seizures, ptsd, traumatic brain injuries and other ailments. I really never thought I would see this in Al. but they are considering it.
I also had the chance to try some pot from a friend who came through Co in Jan. It was totally different. Although it was a nice buzz it was not that beneficial for the aches and pains. I hope they approve it state wide soon. I'm more interested in the pain control and not so much the buzz. That's just a nice little side effect.
I had never heard that it had an effect on Rheumatoid arthritis... Is that common, or did it just happen to work in your case? I'm only 26 and have already been diagnosed with what will very soon be Rheumatoid arthritis and the medications for it are just killing me. I can either just take an extra strength ibuprofen, which kinda helps, or, I can take prednisone, which, of course makes me gain crazy amounts of weight... The real medications for arthritis, she's holding me off of, for now, because if I was on them and got pregnant, it WOULD cause birth defects.

Anyways, my point is, if Marijuana worked for arthritis even close to as well as prednisone, I would be all in.

What about shelving? For a lot of drugs that's the most effective way, ie the way to get the highest yield.

While not quite diplomatically put, the point is valid: You can't generalize people who wish to partake in marijuana. Not every person who enjoys it is an asshole, loser or unproductive member of society.

Most of the shit that is legal and/or prescribed by a doctor is far more destructive to an individual and a community than pot could ever be. (ie. booze and pills)
