    I smoke everyday and I can't stay without smoking. I get the best weed online from ghostvendors,com. Since I started buying from them, I have never bought from a local dealer again. The weed from ghostvendors,com is the best.

    I smoke daily. I'm only 17 but I have really bad anxiety. To the point in will shake just going out of my house. At least if ive never been there or only been there a couple times. Since I started smoking I don't dont shake and I'm usually very calm.

    everything we do is bad for us in some way. pot has been around forever. and does less damage to us than allot of shit we do. id rather smoke pot any day instead of drink alcohol or cigarettes.

    I came to this conclusion based off of the comment section, based off of my own knowledge/experiences and based off of debates. Cannabis is not entirely to blame for anxiety . I believe, It's the man made high amounts of THC that is the underlying issue. You might ask " what do you mean man made?" Well growers engineer higher amounts of THC into cannabis now so you can get higher and they also lower the amount of CBD during the process. And that right there can be an issue for most people specially to new consumers. CBD and THC co-exist from one another to help make you relax and enjoy the high. If one of the two chemicals are out of balance, your most likely going to have an uncomfortable experience. Either one giving you a certain high that you love but giving you anxiety during the session or another that relaxes you, but not give you the high that you want. It's a pretty technical thing just because it requires more balancing with things compared to alcohol. so everybody pretty much varies with consuming cannabis and that's why there's a lot of misconceptions with it. If you give a man who never dranked before a can of beer. He would probably be buzzed out . But if you give him a bottle of vodka and tell him to finish it . He would be vomitting, sweating, have mood swings and probably regret ever taking the bottle to begin with. That same scenario can be applied to cannabis aswell. If random people are consuming random amount of THC, then that in itself can be dangerous. It ruins your mental state by giving you high amounts of anxiety or psychosis. Know what your taking , start low with THC and do not go overboard with it. If you still feel uncomfortable with the lowest amount of natural unfucked with cannabis, then it's time to try CBD oil/flower , it has the lowest amount of THC. In fact I say start out with that first if your curious about cannabis. Be responsible in what you consume and you should be A okay! I believe drugs like this are not the issue, its the lack of knowledge that the school system/ public needs to update on and know. Consume responsibly and be safe 👍

    The war drugs was the biggest con ever spewed from the ass of government since gun control. Two goddamned delusions that were only surpassed by the great government squat and shit, called the war on terror. The war on drugs, is multigenerational failure of one sided laws of ignorance and government overstep that only inflated the black market and created criminals, instead of catching the real ones. Funny how every law wiped from the ass of government seems to criminalize the abiding instead of the actual criminals.Its retarded legislation like the war on drugs, gun control, and the war on terror that have empowered a criminal government and progressively buried this entire goddamned nation in a pile of its own bureaucratic shit.Money, is the real drug most and most dangerous.Greed, is the real addiction and the most destructive.The real criminals, are the goddamned political elite sitting with our own government.When criminals control the law the law becomes a weapon to criminalize and control the abiding that they prey upon will only protect the criminal When we abide by stupidity in any shape or form we become stupid ourselves. Stupid laws create stupid people. Yeah, thats how criminal our own government is. Slavery wasn’t abolished it was only modernized. The invisible chains of red tape bureaucracy, are stronger than steel.

    Legalization is an awful idea.Because then we can’t throw innocent people in prison to make money off them. How immoral!

    The real question is why even promote or legalise something bad ? Don't we say that cigarettes are bad for lungs and all so why are the governments debating whether or not to do something bad? Wtf is wrong with these people?

    Argument 2 and 3 are lies and doesn't make any sense. There are so many different options/strains these days! You can buy any level or THC/CBD you want. If weed is a gateway drug than does that include alcohol???

    Prescription medications for Trigeminal Neuralgia are far worse than Methamphetamine. Cannabis does cure cancer and is the only thing that can keep people suffering the worst pain known to science from committing suicide. But yes, CBD THC ratios are important. More important is to know which strain to use. Chemotherapy never cured cancer. In fact unsponsored medical research does prove that chemotherapy causes cancer by sowing the seeds of it's recurrence. Every educated oncologist knows this fact. First ban prescription opioids, especially Gabapentin, the favourite drug of neurologists. Even quacks prescribe it in dangerous quantities for all sorts of pain. Then talk about side effects of marijuana. Street marijuana is more rat poison than anything else. Medical marijuana is something entirely different.

    Legalised or not if you want it you get it.... But gate way of drug in the argument was wrong(in my opinion) becuz some people only smoke weed but left cigarettes...not even drinkin alcohol, Drug like heroin etc is far from them....So to conclude it... ITS YOUR CHOICE...
