    I smoked a lot of weed for 5 years including dabs. I never tried anything other than acid and mushrooms a few times. The only reason I don’t smoke any more is because I decided to join the Army. I have never had the urge to smoke weed since I stopped so the whole addiction thing is bs and false. There really is no reason for it to be illegal.

    Since its legalisation in Canada, literally 1/3 of my school smokes it. Almost all my friends smoke it and it gets in the way of multiple friend activities we used to have. They've also lowered as human beings. It's physical effects aren't that big of a deal, but the Effects it has on your brain and yourself as a person are bad. I have very mixed feelings about this drug, it annoyes me that's one thing.

    The narrator is smoking a bowl of crack cocaine and injecting black tar heroin. Get fucked if you think theres more harms against positives. Ill be honored to be the first death from marijuana if you think its that bad. Oh wait... you green out before you can even get close to smoke 1500 pounds of it.

    Weed is legal, but they don't want you to smoke it anywhere. America and their dumb Laws. Weed is one of the most discriminated plants. It's not even a drug.

    Weed is legal here in Washington state (seattle) and I dont smoke it. Just because its legal doesn't mean everyone will smoke it. Better than alcohol IMO

    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 ._.
