What sparked this in my head was a kid (who is 12 years old) has a weed insignia posted next to his name. First of all, I can't stand when people smoke weed. It seriously ruined some of my best friendships; and IMO it is morally wrong. If you disagree thats cool, but state your opinion why.


That aside, what do you think? How old is "old enough" to be considered "eligeble" to
smoke weed without it seeming like your too young?


Discuss please.

I didn't say "weed" was morally wrong... I said "smoking" weed was. Also, it is my opinion and I am entitled to it.

That's a ridiculous argument. How the hell can smoking a plant be morally wrong?

^ EDIT

You're really not entitled to that opinion, as you clearly have no concept of morality.

Look it up in a dicitonary, or I'll start saying the colour black is morlaly wrong, pizza is morally wrong and Saudi Arabia is morally wrong.

Killing someone and smoking a substance is completely different and you'd have to be a complete faggot to even compare the two.

I don't smoke weed, and I hate people who do, but it's their choice. They need to learn to control it. I think if it were legal, there wouldn't be so much fuss about it.

Like right now, alcohol and cigarettes are legal. But no-one's really too excited about that.

If you were to make, say, doughnuts against the law, I bet sales would increase, cos people want to see why it's been banned.

EDIT: I don't hate people BECAUSE they smoke weed, but I have noticed that the people that I dont like (mean people) all smoke it

Just out interest, why do you think it's wrong? I'm not going to flame you, I'm just curious.

I'd say at least 16.

Quote by Arthur Curry
See the only proven side effect of smoking weed is schitophrenia. And that only occurs in 12-15 year olds who smoke heavily. So I don't know. I guess I'd say people shouldn't start before the age of 16. Realistically.
It's only a link, and not a very strong one. It just as easily says that those who are prone to mental illness are more likely to take drugs.

Because it's illegal. (Well, where it is legal, I don't see it being morally wrong).

I started when I was 12. But that's too young.

There really isn't an age, like some people say "Get 'em while they're young," but I don't think that was put into context with smoking reefer.

About friend relationship ruining, did they do something to you or did you just say "You smoke weed I hope you die!" or some other anti-weed statement

... can you explain to me how smoking weed is morally wrong?


You change your state of mind for a different, so called "enhanced" mind set, while (most of the time) you sit around wasting your time, and the time of others your with. While you could be doing something a bit more constructive. This is from my perspective on it. Like I said, I've lost a lot of friendships over this. If you disagree that's cool. THIS IS MY OPINION ON IT.

No it's not, it's a ridiculous attempt at sounding intelligent.

The two are incomparable.

Whether it's healthy or not is irrelevant, morals don't come into smoking.

That's like saying it's morally wrong to drive a car because it's bad for the environment.

Coming from a guy who's username is 'guitarjunkie' I don't think you should be lecturing people on how they waste their time.

Guitar is a waste of time. Guitar is morally wrong. You could be building an orphanage.

I really dont see how its morally wrong....if you have it everyday and you start get slow you shoudl take it easy....what id like to know is why everyone thinks its wrong like a really great solid reason...altho 12 years just seems kinda young...ambe its jsut me
im better than normal....im abnormal!
#29
i first smoked when i was 11, found my dads stash, and tried it, rolled the shitteist joint imaginable, and felt nothing upon smoking, then i smoked again when i was 13, didnt really start smoking until 15 or so... I researched pot alot at the age of 15, found out everything ive needed to know. I always do alot of research before even thinknig of trying drugs, as long as you have the facts and understand everything completely, you could start smokin whenever you want in my opinion, i think 15 is a good age to be able to fully understand the effects and make an educated choice.

Theres nothing I hate more than 13 year old kids poppin E and thinknig there XTREME, most of them know nothing about the drug, thats where things get dangerous, stupid people doing stupid things....

Im a smart person donig stupid things... so... it all balances out.

So you see alcohol, poppers, and cigarettes as morally right? Because they are legal, right, i mean, thats all your arguement seems to consist of. Did it ever consider to you that a law might be wrong?
You are a retard and obviously not even able to debate on the issue of drugs.

It won't be the drugs fault though will it? It will be the persons for letting it become such a major thing in their life.

People on so called,"hard drugs" can still live a good life and contribute to society.

I'd say 15-16. Smoking weed isn't morally wrong, if it were morally wrong then alcohol and Nyquil would be morally wrong. Honestly if anything Weed should be legal over alcohol and Cigarettes because Alcoholism effects a good what was it (I may be wrong) but 30% of the American population, (that might not be exact but it was big). And cigarettes cause every cancer and lung related disease known to man and they don't even get you high or anything.The only reasonable argument against it is that you don't do anything.This is true but its not the only thing. Video games and music(as in your trying to be a musician) can also cause you to live a similar life that dosent mean there going to ban world of Warcraft at least stoner's need to leave to grab..

Seeing as the smoking age is being raised to 18 here in the UK, 18 seems a good enough age for weed too. But 16 is alright too
