Yeah, tobacco is hard to quit. Even after years of having quit it I still crave a little bit occasionally; luckily it has become something rare, but still happens sometimes. (Happily tobacco free for 5 years now).

I don't dislike weed, but it's defiantly over rated. I have used it on a fare few occasions, but i have made the observation that it makes ME unsociable. All i want to do is chill by my self (which is enjoyable) but in a sociable occasion alcohol is still king.
I heard Ecstasy is less harmful than alcohol. I am a person that has always had a 'cynical' point of view towards illegal amphetamines, but have begun to become interested because of this 'supposed' fact. I know this thread is on marijuana, but could someone with experience please share their views on Ecstasy?

There's not been any evidence that proves smoking Marijuana has any ill side effects.
That's why nobody who smokes weed coughs. It actually helps your lungs stay healthy.

Most of the time Ecstasy is just a mix of drugs like Heroin, Acid, Cocaine and rarely what true Ecstasy is supposed to be. The big danger there (among others) is if you didn’t make it yourself or if they made it wrong or overdosing like alcohol?

I though I needed alcohol at one time. I really do like the taste of beer. But I noticed that it started to change the way I thought and acted. People can say what they want about this doesn't effect me and that doesn't effect me. But I come from a family that has a lot of substance abusers. I can tell when they are clean and when they are using. It does effect you, you just do not see it.

@Habitual, tobacco was another vice I had. I loved cigarettes then went to chew. The only way I quit tobacco was after I was saved.

Don't know about parts of that? But it can stop cancer too, they could not study it for so long because of the bulls#!t...and still cops kids need cars and busting pot heads is easy, if there is a place for laziness\stupidity ta fit it will!

Yes weed can stop cancer. Bob Marley and Timothy Leary faked their own deaths. And their lungs were perfectly healthy when they died.

I am a weed advocate, but I wasn't born yesterday.

They use the words hope and could, and state directly that smoking it won't help at all.

Saying that marijuana inhibits, stops, or cures cancer is a fallacy.

What that article says is that there is a canibinoid that could potentailly help treat cancer when isolated (synthetically produced) and injected.
