  • I liked it until i got into my late 30's. Now it just messes with my sleep and makes me feel tired and old. So smoke it up while you're young,kiddos. The high isnt that great after you start getting old.

  • It's simple every person that smokes or vapes anything always will be coughing their lungs out. People that do this long term have throat problems and eventually will lead into more serious health effects. Also breathing in bad pollution of any kind for years and years is pretty much guaranteed to knock off 10+ years off your life and makes your chances of getting a heart attack a lot higher. That's why in polluted countries the average life span is 10-20 years less than the rest of the world.

  • The one health hazard not mentioned was the high death rate of those forced to interact with dope smokers, and who die of boredom. Like drunks, dope smokers are just plain boring and tedious.

  • Ref: THE LANCET Issue 9904, 9-15 Nov 2013: "The key findings from estimates of other outcomes of illicit drug use were as follows: regular cannabis use made a VERY SMALL contribution to disease burden (approx 7000 DALYS globally). The highest estimated global burden was attributable to opioid dependence (9.2 million DALYS)." From the article cited in the video

  • Marijuana is great. Use it as a tool to expand your mind. Think every way possible. Your brain has the ability to utilize the same hardware without marijuana software afterwards; how great is that?!

  • Over 40 years in hospital work cannot recall one instance of person being admitted for overdose of Marijuana or being admitted because of health issues related to quitting marijuana. With alcohol, the legal and more socially acceptable drug, the picture is COMPLETELY different. Alcohol is one of the most dangerous narcotic drugs on planet Earth. One of the most dangerous things an alcohol abuser can do is to quit cold turkey by himself. Even with the advanced medical techniques to help alcohol abusers deal with withdrawal it is often several days of serious issues before person is out of danger.
    Most human beings like to claim that they are 'rational'. Attitudes about marijuana and laws that have been on the books for decades tell a completely different story.
    Do I believe use of alcohol should be criminalized in the United States AGAIN ?
    Absolutely not. But penalties for drunken drivers are WAY, WAY, WAAAAAAAAY too lenient!!!
    I have had three family members killed by drunken drivers …. in three separate incidents.

  • I was diagnosed with cannabis use disorder when it helped with my spasms and I mostly would smoke reg. Now that I've no other choice but to stop, CBD biofreeze cream has helped me with my pain enough to walk again. 🙂 Can't wait for it to be legal in KY. Maybe then I can drive again too.

  • I smoked on weekends in high school and college. Graduated and moved to Colorado, where I stopped drinking alcohol and started using pot recreationally every day. It’s been 4 or 5 years with no ill side effects on mentality, motivation, physical activity or cardio. I also don’t use it constantly. Probably twice around 8 and 9 o’clock at night, every night and it really helps with muscle soreness, and just getting to sleep. That being said, about sleep. I have noticed that when I stop using cannabis for maybe 2 or 3 weeks, I have vivid nightmares of primal shit, or like a dream where I get very very drunk and feel wasted in my dream, it’s so real. That is literally the 1 negative side effect I can think of with cannabis. It does effect your ability to REM sleep, thus when you stop smoking cannabis for 2-3 weeks you are basically catching up on your Rapid Eye Movement sleep.
