when I was young I used to smoke weed as well for fun, but as I got older it started doing things to me:

made me stupid
made me REAL hungry even when I knew I wasn't, and I gained weight
made me stupid
made me paranoid
made me stupid
dried out my eyes/contacts like mad
made me stupid
made me drive like a total idiot
made me forgetful
did I say it made me stupid???

They say pot isn't harmful? Don't believe the hype. You may not become a raging lunatic from smoking it, but can waste away from indolence...

I feel for you (and your friend) Lilly...but she can only make herself stop.

i didn't say it was guaranteed that everyone who smokes pot will definitely become addicted *and* also move on to harder drugs. i said it can happen. i don't see what is so wrong with me thinking smoking pot is wrong. after all, it is illegal. doesn't matter how stupid the reason is for why it's illegal, it is. i don't wanna risk throwing away my entire future to get high.

I'm gonna go with Khanada on this one. No matter what your personal convictions are and what the medical "evidence" is...the fact remains that at least in the U.S., it is illegal. By all means, go through the proper channels to legalize it if you feel it should be done...vote, lobby, campaign, etc. But as of the moment, if you do pot, you're breaking the law. That in and of itself would seem to make it "wrong" for the moment.
