People vary a lot in their responses to marijuana. Most people suffer no harm from moderate use, but some have a dangerous intolerance to it and can have a psychotic breakdown if they smoke a strong form like skunk. I know because it happened to a friend of mine. To make matters worse, she became addicted to it, which is also unusual but it does happen.

The main argument for legalising it is that keeping it illegal keeps its distribution in the hands of criminals and that makes a bad situation worse.

An ancient book said something to the effect of "All things are lawful for me, but not all things are advantageous."

Legal or not that stuff isn't a positive by any measure save for legitimate medicinal use as far as I'm concerned.
Your two (let-alone 7.some-billion, no offence but as if we'd know you have any,,, tho opinions ironically ) "friends" are not here to defend you?!.

I haven't smoked any pot for at least 4 or 5 months now, and don't feel the need to get any more.

Although, and that said, I don't plan on giving up completely

(although I guess technically speaking you could say "I've given up" until I get some more )

But they do need to legalize it tho!

Don't smoke.Never smoked.
I have no legal or moral objection, but the stuff smells like burning horse sh*t. Absolutely disgusting!
I have a neighbor who stands outside on his porch smokng that stuff at zero-dark-thirty, every morning. He has no medical condition, or none he has mentioned. There has to be something mentally deficient with someone who has to get high the very first thing in the morning, or maybe he is just an addict.

No coffee yet!? Texting tho. What else?

add: Naturally there's different smells from strains.

It looks like I'm a complete drug addict compared to you then

I was offered some when I was at the bus stop, I think a couple of months ago now, and I do know another guy I could probably score through if I wanted to. But I figured while I'm trying to improve my mathematical skills, and learn more about programming, it might be easier if I didn't smoke any. Don't get me wrong, I can still do stuff on the computer even stoned out of my head (and have, even reinstalled entire distro's and setup them up to my liking while completely wasted), it just makes things a little sloooower if I did have a smoke. But given the strange times we are currently living in, I really should get completely stoned outta my head. So it's been a wonder I haven't rung up a few people to try and score yet...

Once or twice in over eight years for me, just so I can keep good jobs run by us hypocrites.

I randomly drink alcohol in small amounts, socially, any more than that and we're talking real

Possibly emotionally deficient but I doubt mentally deficient. I've known a number of people who work in high stress environments who "wake and bake:" (I never did) because they are calmer and, loose quote - "Shitstorms just roll off my back and I can deal instead of freak".

Deficient? How many people take anti-depressants or some form of serotonin uptake inhibitors these days to "deal"? or steroids in some form to "look better" or be more attractive or confidence building? Then, of course, there's the Two Martini Lunch and Starbucks... and nicotine despite it's highly publicized problems with delivery method? You can call them medicine or brunch but if they have ANY psychoactive or physical results, in reality they are drugs. By that metric a very large percentage of humanity is "deficient" and likely includes everyone reading or writing here and that would be a very small tip of an immense "iceberg".

Thumbs up

Shopping at the supermarket, (living in cities and industrial zones expanding to everywhere if you think past our lives) where you don't know who did what, (or worse yet has 25 ingredients where there should be 8) is worse than (a 25+ year old) growing (aquaponically) n vaping your own. Plus,,, it doesn't come in some throw away plastic containers.

We're all taught by only humans running the shows.

A stone to the head will knock us off our horses!
