    Weed only causes paranoia because it’s illegal in most places. Change my mind.

    NICOTINE IS A GATEWAY DRUG, I swear, I had a nicotine addiction, and thankfully, I don’t not anymore. But the addiction made me want to try other drugs, and I did. Now I stay with no addictive drugs, like weed and acid.


    CBD has all the benefits of marijuana without the annoying high. I used to use THC distillate, and it made me have panic attacks.

    Marijuana is NOT a drug, it is a plant that has existed longer than humans... Please remake this video with out your personal bias involved.

    We know alcohol and cigarettes klls thousands of people globally and of course holds the potentials too be highly addictive causing harm to the user! Imatation pot more commonly known as synthetic pot in my opinion is worse! Being highly addictive causing mood swings psychosis death and many other negative anti social behaviours! I know because I've seen family members get hooked and f"""d up by whatever chemicals they put in their sh"t and sell to our families across the counter until they finally pulled it off the shelfs and made it illegal to sell at the local dairy store. My point being! U can't overdose on pot and die! Maybe fall asleep and get a bad case of the munchies perhaps? Certainly not life threatening!?! And4 the psychosis thing! I don't believe that's a valid point or cause? Marijuana doesnt give you psychosis! Well not in my experience if anything it gives you relief from all forms of psychosis and dramas andr helps you to relax and reflect! And f u do get paranoid well maybe pot ain't for you! In summary those 3 excuses being used are outdated and mostly irrelevant today in my view! Nor does it reflect the copius amounts of scientific research and hard data that exists supporting all the wonderful benefits and blessings that pot can share with those who choose to use her😊Cheers whanau bless

    The main argument against legalization seems to have no traction here. If you’re worried about inducing psychosis by smoking weed, just don’t smoke weed. Pretty simple if you ask me.

    I dont want to say “fuck that who wanna legalize or just worships weed” BUT please dont say “marihuana is safety,its dont causes death,you cant overdose,its just a plant”etc. Because i got brutal anxiey, panic attacks,forced thoughts about death from weed.I must take medicines every day(antidep/antianxietics)

    Weed is totally fine for anyone and everyone YOU TELL US it's a "GATEWAY DRUG" no way it is I have been smoking since a young age man and my opinion as one man to that statement is "Wrong" you see what I have come to realize that the television media and internet has told us that marijuana is a "GATEWWAY DRUG" since we are children it's a bad thing to smoke it can lead to wear drugs NOT TRUE everyone that says this said is a LIAR cuz you all put that knowledge in people head and manifested that this would happen so it's happening

    I don't know what the experience for other underage people are... But for me, it's SO much easier to get hold of legal drugs (cigarettes, alcohol) than illegal. That contradicts what the video states, but as I said, I can't speak for all teenagers.
