    Very interesting. Although as the guy stated. The end point is to legalize and restrict. Basically like cigarettes.

    Every 10 years tobacco kills the same number of people that died in WW2 , so cigarettes cause WW2 casualties every 10 years.Vaping has been around for about 10 years and recently 7 people have died and the media is pushing to remove flavored pods and in some countries and States , making vapes totally illegal, cigarette deaths every 10 years: 80,000,000Vaping deaths last 10 years : 7.

    Besides medicinal use, there's no valid reason to smoke weed. May not be as bad as cigarettes but still ain't healthy, always a better alternative ._.

    Every time you have a conversation with a stoner about marijuana they bring up alcohol. Like wtf LOL has anybody else realized this? Like literally no fucking reason they will just bring up alcohol? what? fucking what? someone tell me am I missing something? why are stoners always comparing shit. It’s like a suicidal person saying well no if I jump off the hotel vs the waterfall than at least I won’t feel anything it will be better? Ok so why mention the fucking waterfall then? Stoners are the exact same way. “Well it’s better than alcohol” in a gay trans man with pink hair voice. Fucking weirdos

    Way to bad. Let people be free of deciding about their life instead of spreading videos saying that nowadays marijuana is a strong drug. You have no idea of what you are talking about. Have an experience with stong drugs and then review your thinking.I accept every opinion but not fake news.Stop prohibition.

    There is no need for laws regarding cannabis. Laws of this nature only serve greed. Repeal of laws is the only honest way to go. Control through taxation and regulation of natural commodities is shameful. Here in the USA most people are in favor of "legalization", but they don't seem to understand what that really entails and who it ultimately benefits. Repeal is the word they're yearning for, but don't know it. There are always more options than are presented by those who seek (or are paid/programmed as puppets) to control. This video presentation is complicit in the "choice A or B paradigm". In all it's examples, this video presents only 2 choices which are both focused on money/control.

    Psychosis is a thing that I see very few people talk about. Especially in the case of people with bipolar disorder. I had to experience aggressive and antisocial behaviour from a bipolar flatmate because he was a stoner and he regularly had psychosis. He thought he was medicating himself the right way and he used to think he acted calmer because of weed. In fact, weed only made him suppress the feeling of his symptoms and it gradually made him more paranoid. I am tired of how people keep pushing this stupid agenda of weed being a magical medicine which substitutes every possible type of medication for all mental illnesses, whereas in reality, it is not even a medicine- not thc at least; it is a leisure drug and it has to be used responsibly, especially by those who suffer from serious mental conditions.
