How bad is braincell reduction on weed rather Alcohol, or Bashing your head on a floor. I fink me bwains have deemineeeshed

THC does not kill your braincells. It clogs the synapse between them, thus slowing communication by way of neurotransmitters. Over time, if a person smokes more than he or she excercises his or her brain, then that person has more of a chance of having reduced brain power. The brain acts like a muscle. The more you excercise it, the stronger it can stay.

E-blow job for you.

I smoke weed everyday, do brain age training everyday and play sudoku. I havent lost any of my cells, as far as i can tell. My short term memory is still pretty decent too.

Coffee has a stronger physical withdrawal in my opinion. I've found that my breaks from smoking weed had no real physical discomfort, but on days when I don't drink coffee I have a headache. Yay for dependency!

This is because caffeine is physically addictive, whereas THC is not.

no one has ever died smoking weed
millions of people die from drinking alcohal
thc is in no way harmful for your body
alcohal is
smoking isnt the best thing for your lungs, but you dont get lung cancer from weed. you get lung cancer from ciggerettes from all the other harmful chemicals (like rat poison) in them. usually when you stop smoking weed for a few weeks, (this happens to me atleast) you'll get a pretty bad caugh for a few days, and you'll hack up a lot of flem. thats all the carcinogens. at that point you breathe and function like someone whos never smoked before
weed is completely safe, its illegal because it would ruin our economy. hemp would replace paper and a lot of fabrics, and tobacco is our main crop, weed isnt a huge crop in the US.
so stop drinking and hit the bong

how many people die each year from alcohol? I don't know, but it's a ****load. How many die because of thc? Well, about zero, I guess.

yeah well with alcohol you know what's in it at least, half the time your weed has a chance of being laced with some other drug. Unless you have medical m.j

No.

Think about it. Why would a dealer give you drugs without your knowledge for free? He's not going to be in business long if he does this.

Marijuana is probably one of the safest drugs around, truthfully.

The fact that you believed Marijuana to be worse just means you fall prey to the ridiculous anti-marijuana propaganda of our time.

More propaganda? Did you guys also know that gullible is written on your moms left ass cheek? Go check, honestly.

As the person above me pointed out, it would **** the dealer over big time.

thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard. if someone was to lace there weed with.... oh lets say.... coke? alright, a gram of good coke can run you like 80 bucks i think, actually 40, i really dont know i would never touch that ****. basically, if you were going to lace your stuff, it would cost a lot, and no dealer would want to give out extra drugs for free. plus, most of the time you wont have laced stuff. ive baught weed hundreds of times from atleast 50 different people and ive never had laced stuff

Weed isn't physically addictive like other drugs but It just becomes such a huge part of your life once you start doing it that it can be hard to stop. Oh well, i don't mind, I like it alot.

Well that's not true. When you smoke anything, you're denying your brain of oxygen and, therefore, losing brain cells.

Of course it's no more brain cells lost than kids in a pool seeing who can hold their breath the longest, but it's still some.

I would say smoke in moderation. And if you have a family history of schizophrenia, I'd seriously reconsider your want to smoke; there's a high correlation between ganja and mental health issues. That said, it's unclear whether weed is the causative agent.

It's tough to research the long term effects of weed (obviously). The best research into this subject was by the Swedes where they performed a longitudinal study on a cohort of national service conscripts (that means they monitored them over a series of years). Results DID show a correlation, but in a statistically significant number of those, they showed precursor signs of schizophrenia prior to taking up the habit. This poses the question: does weed cause schizophrenia or are schizophrenics drawn to weed? The results of this study are hotly contested though.

Whether you're going to go nuts aside, the lifestyle change you can undergo is perhaps more dangerous. I agree with the above posters- I smoked moderately (3-4g/week) for nearly 4 years, and while I did notice a slight drop in short term memory, my other mental faculties were left intact- I was studying for my psych major at the time. My social life, however, consisted of going over to mates places and lighting up bowls and playing playstation for hours. Not cool. At the start of this year though I grew out of it as a habit, and while I do have the occasional joint if its being passed around at a party, it's not a problem anymore. Although now I gotta worry about my alcohol and amphetamine problems...

Whatever ya do, do it in moderation and you'll be right.

advice:

avoid Stress..... (its a type of weed)

man this stuff is freaking wierd man.

its worn off, but while i sit in front of my computer, my legs feel really cold and numb and buzzing and far away and really light...but heavy at the same time....

idk...just never get 20-30fatty hits of it within an hour....or you will be trippin' really hard...
=]


but yeah....alcohol causes long-term damage that can't be fixed really....
and weed causes extremely short-term impairments....but its not how commercials are
with the "What Now?" things. or "Above The Influence".
my brother smokes a blunt to himself and goes for a drive and is high off of his ass but can drive jus fine =] so thats a myth busted right there.....just don't smoke stress and drive or you might trip and misjudge by ALOT and kill yourself in a horrid crash...haha

edit:

^ it causes schizophrenia to a certain degree of course
if you're really high you're susceptible to believing anything right away, and you
can feel things that you really don't....like i was rubbing my knees really fast against my perfectly smooth desk, and i thought my legs were burning.
and my best friend, was told by our friend who was smokin with us, after he left, that sean (my best friend) fell and hit his head REALLY hard on a curb, so he was trippin out for the next 6hours of our uber high off of Afghan.

so yeah...it definately causes schizophrenia.
and a schizophrenic using it might turn weed into a Delirium for them, making them
probably have dramatic effects and hallucinations.
