Yes, I know that there is the other drug thread and I did not miss it but that thread is loaded with much other questions about other things so I really didn't want to just add another question in. Anyways, I'll get to the point. Does smoking marijuana, interfere with your school studies, not in a matter of becoming addicted to it but like affecting your brain in a way that you won't be able to study as hard or be as focused. I'm in a crucial year for school and I don't want to smoke during the school year because I feel it'll just screw me up. Any reliable help is much appreciated.

I started smoking it in my GCSE year and I only just scraped 4 GCSE's to get into my music Tech course - Do it, but at your own risk....

Yeah I'm talking once in a while on a Friday or Saturday. I'm just going to University next year so I don't want to mess up. I heard it'll damage your short term memory?

It does affect your short term memory but I don't know how much you would smoke before this happens.

i dont know man, you should be safe. just don't burnout or so to speak. Smoke occasionaly. not before school. and dont do your homework high. just keep your wits sharp and you should be good
#16
Once I started getting high, I was able to concentrate much better actually. You should be fine, try it a couple of times, and see what you think.
#17
Just do it in moderation (i.e. on weekends), and it shouldn't affect your studies, I did fine in my G.C.S.E's while doing it socially occasionally (although not DURING the exams, that just isn't clever). We had an insane summer and now I've calmed it down to that again, and everythings fine.

My short term memory is ok, its just occasionally when I think of something to say and then someone buts in and I forget whilst I'm waiting - Sometimes I go downstairs to do something and forget why I've gone down and the 15 yard trip is pointless - Its not life changing.

i smoked from 13-16 and passed all my exams and done well (parents even gave me £100), but it effects different people different ways some become quite dependant on the drug and even end up gettin high in school.

dont do it at school and dont do it more than two days a week, you will be more than capable of performing if you stick to 2 days a week or less. When you do it more than 2 times a week you are taking a risk, and may not do as well at school (because you're mind isnt clear) BUT this does not mean will fail... just make sure school comes first.

P.S and more questions feel free to message me.

That really only happens when you do it every day or every other day. If you're a weekend smoker you'll be fine.

If they can see spiders coming out of the wall from smoking weed...can you get me some of that **** then?


Weed doesnt make you sit and home and smoke it all day, the person chooses that.

Weed isn't an hallucinogenic, so that is the biggest load of **** I've ever heard.

You're full of shit. Marijuana doesn't cause visual hallucinations and you don't "trip".

well depending on the weed. smoke a blunt of AK and a blunt of some dank kind bud you might trip a little, and some people lace their weed, which again depending on the drug its laced with can make you trip.
#29
depends really....i kno if i smoke enough one night, the next day i feel absolutely brain dead. ill walk to the kitchen, forget y im there, start a task for no reason, etc....

just do it in moderation basically.

Wheb you smoke a blunt you don't trip... If you laced the bloody thing in acid or ket you'd bloody trp but a blunts just a puree joint rapped up in a tobacco leaf.

I don't think itl'l do ANYTHING to you if you smoke it every few months, youl'l just wake up the next day with puffy eyes.

Weekend smoking is fine, just try not to do it on school nights.

Doesn't effect your studies.

I'm not going to recomend anything since, I'm on probation and theres no way i'm telling you to do anything illegal.

On another note; It's all personal preference.. I found i could concentrate a lot more with my studies but i did notice that i would sometimes focus on the wrong thing, such as: Cracking jokes, nearly ****ting my pants in a fart war, throwing things at this extremely huge kid (no joke fellas, this kid was like 6'0 and 450lbs. He had special desks and everything). So really, it helped me more then it deterred my learning experience. Just learn not to smoke too much, a small spliff (half a gram of cannibis half a gram of tobacco) will do the trick. Then once school is out, smoke a blunt and do homework. On the otherhand, i did drink before football games, so i'm sure that killed more brain cells then smoking but man, i could ****ing hit people into a coma. Our left tackle took out this kid on special teams and they took him away in the ambulance, lights and sirens blaring.

Anyways, you'll have to learn from trial and error.
#35
I smoked post most of last year and got mostly A's and B's, as well as a 4 on my AP US History test.

Priorities. Get high and go to class... you won't learn.

Get high on Saturday night? Yeah, you're fine.


FWIW, I quit just cause I got really bored. It's not a bad thing by any means, but for me I was so bored I started considering dabbling in other drugs, and screw that.
haha
#36
Over the past summer, i smoked everyday, and if i didn't have weed, i would be irritable. I also thought about harder ****, then said **** that, and started slowly dropping it. Its not a bad thing if you don't smoke every single day, multiple times a day. The only memory problems i have now are short term memory problems, like forgetting if im stipes or solids in a game of pool for example. If you can manage to keep it to weekends ONLY, then by all means, smoke a blunt every friday/satuday with your friends.

And yes, there have actually been reported cases of people tripping from just smoking weed. Now if their weed was laced, or it was really good weed, i'm not sure. Check errowid if you really want to know. But there have been reported cases of people tripping on weed.

Theres also a rumor i heard about weed not actually killing brain cells, but altering them so that memory isn't great during periods of longterm use or after periods of longterm use. Don't quote me on this, because your guess is as good as mine if this is true or not.

Hope this helped a bit.
#37
Well its really your own opinion, but I used to be a pothead - blazed every day and multiple times on weekends and i've found that i'm really less motivated to do **** lmfao. Now that i've stoped I've just become really lazy, but than again I wasn't just a casual smoker like you would be...

of course it's possible, with a little thing called Moderation and self-control It does affect short-term memory or it does affect me anyway as sooon as im done smoking it lol you forget things easily but after your high and even well before the next day you'll be fine.
