not saying it's not,because i've had some fun times on the juice(alky),but what is the rational behind saying that it's better?and in what way?i love both,i just wanna hear arguments.
#2
i always hated smoking becasue id get stuck sitting staring at the wall for 5 hours... whereas if i was drunk i could freely roam.

Well for starters no cirrhosis of the liver. You can't become physically dependent on marijuana. What else...only real advantage I think alcohol has is the duration, but weed is much more pleasurable while you're high.

the toxins in alcohol are more harmful to your body than the toxins in marijuana.

I find the feeling of being stoned much more pleasurable than that of being drunk, plus no hangovers.

They're both really, REALLY disappointing in my experience... I don't really understand the hype. If I want to do something enjoyable involving drugs I'd much rather turn to hallucinogens or something actually entertaining. Better yet, I'd much prefer to be sober and enjoy the company of friends or look at the stars at night, able to more clearly contemplate in things, which is fun for me. I dunno. Everyone has different experiences with various things in life, to answer your question.

I'm not going to say weed is better than alcohol, but I can say that it's easier to get high every day than to get drunk every day.

Well here's the way I see it. Alcohol is worse physically, because of the liver damage, nausea, etc. And marijuana is worse mentally due to memory loss, etc. Plus I'm an active person so I don't necessarily enjoy the effects it has on my lungs. This stuff is just my opinion though. I also have more fun drinking because I like going around doing dumb stuff with my friends, and drunk sex is pretty fun too, and I never get hangovers the next day no matter how much I drink. I can drink 1 beer or 18 beers or an entire bottle of liquor and not get a hangover, I either wake up fine or still drunk haha.

Basically everyone is going to have their own opinion, I think it really suits your personality, if you are more of a get up and go type of person and don't really like sitting around for hours doing nothing then you are probably going to enjoy alcohol more, and vice versa.

Well. It doesn't kill you, or cause you to kill other people with your car, it doesn't make you vomit, it doesn't make you sick the next day, it doesn't destroy your liver, it's not a depressant, being high is better than being low, it's not addictive, it makes you find pleasure in simple things, it relaxes you...I dunno, want me to keep going?

I was talking to my girlfriend's dad the other day about this. And he's been around the block with both alcohol and mary jane, and other stuff. And he says marijuana is better because you can only get "so high". Where-as with alcohol, if you keep drinking, you do stupid **** like kill people or hurt people, or yourself. Usually when high, you still have control over your body/mind to an extent. With alcohol, it can be lost.

I always loved alcohol for the numb feeling.

That's why marijuana is better.

I think most people will only go to a certain extent doing dumb stuff when they are hammered, it just depends on the person's self control and how well they control their emotions.

and alcohol severely hampers ones ability to do both of these things.

Right, and it's not like alcohol inhibits these two things.

I see it this way. In a social situation it's better to be drinking because you won't really zone out as much as if you're high. Smoking is better in a smaller group. Get it right with either and you'll have a great time.

Marijuana is a lot more calming, and it's a LOT less harmful to your body and mental health.


Mental health...eh. Ever since i started smoking, my memory went down the drain lol. I usually just remember **** like a day after it happens.

Hahaha, just comparing that to how getting wasted could make a person forget an entire night, though.
#25
I used to think this was the case...

Recently, I've quit smoking because it just is not fun anymore. I've even cut back a lot on the drinking and overall, between the two, have been happier with improved memory.

I guess that's what you call maturity.
mmmk.

well someone said marijuana is better because its not addicting... but alcohol technically isn't either... and marijuana will cause just as much damage to your lungs as alcohol will to your liver, provided you use both responsibly.

If you want to have fun with friends n go crazy, alcohol is the way to go.
If you want to relax and chill then marijuana is the way to go.

Good luck continuing that in college if you pursue any somewhat challenging degree.

Have you ever seen a drunk chick? Most of the time they either throw up everywhere, keep falling down, keep apologizing, or won't shut the hell up. I much prefer the conversation with a high chick.

Also, if you are a female and don't act like this, then congrats on being an exception and possibly a fun person to hang out with.
#31
whaat? marijuana doesnt make you fellas wanna go out and do stuff? damn, you're missing out. I like marijuana better because it just makes everything so much better. seriously, you need to experience the incredible fun of going to something like lazer tag super baked hahaha. food always tastes like heaven too. movies too, especially comedies and action, are much better to go to baked then drunk. ohh and snowboarding baked is feckin heaven so long as you dont get toooo high so you have your senses. but yeah, alky is better for parties but over all I think the ganja is king.

Why I personally prefer weed

1) Its generally cheaper
2) It can be used in a wider range of situations
3) Its effects are more enjoyable (this one is entirely personal opinion)
4) No hangovers, ever. In fact, you'll feel better the next day from being residually high
5) I find smoking, in general, to be a fun process. Especially compared to the unenjoyable taste of alcohol.
6) Weed wont make you black out, or start doing stupid **** you wouldnt normally do.

Love em both, but weed is vastly preferable IMO. That said, I am currently taking a break from weed, as some of its negative effects were starting to catch up to me. Which is actually another reason I love weed. I smoked almost every day for 2-3 months straight, and multiple times a day for the past couple weeks. Yet I cut myself off completely, with no problem at all.
