    Maybe add some information into your post first.



    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

    Amend the Controlled Substances Act and to exclude MARIJUANA and TETRAHYDROCANNABINOLS

    Please amend the Controlled Substances Act and also amend the Controlled Substances Import and Export Act to exclude MARIJUANA and TETRAHYDROCANNABINOLS. You know that this is a very strong subject in America, why can't you be the first president to approach it rather than ignore it? Everyone keeps side stepping this even though marijuana has none of the side-effects close to alcohol or the tar in cigarettes. I understand that it is also up to the states to decide this, but it is not the federal governments job to tell us what we can and cannot put into our own bodies. I, myself, am not a user of marijuana, but this is about the freedom of the people. Why is there so much federal control over our own judgement and our own bodies?

    I figured the information has the same effect right there, but whatever. Thanks.

    Why should weed be legalized? It's dangerous, and you're to young for regular cigarettes, anyway.

    All these people who say "legalize weed" and "it's perfectly safe" are just a group of 16-year-old meth-heads who have no idea what they're talking about.

    In what way is marijuana dangerous, and why is it dangerous enough to justify the massive amounts of time, money and effort spend prohibiting its use?

    Marijuana effects peoples' ability to learn by reducing cognitive abilities. It can also lead to bronchitis, asthma, and emphysema, and increases the risk of cancer.

    But I agree that way too much is being spent on the fight against it.

    You have no idea what you're talking about. Weed is healthy for you, why the fuck do you think they have medical marijuana? It's the same stuff, it's just prescribed.

    Cigarettes do most of that + a lot more, and they're legal.

    Actually weed is very harmful to you. It may not give you lung cancer but instead it kills brain cells, you get addicted, and you get high on it which prevents you from thinking correctly which can cause you to do something stupid and possibly kill yourself. I rest my case.

    Mexical marijuana is used by professionals who actually know what they're doing. In a hospital, it isn't smoked. All you want to do is roll it into a joint and get high of it.

    This is where it gets dangerous. Contrary to the beliefs of most teenagers, marijuana can have disasterou effect on brain function. It causes neurons to slowly shrink, reducing their ability to function properly.

    This, if you don't know, reduces your ability to think properly. However, judging by the fact that you made this thread, I think that ship has sailed for you.

    Nah. Little about me;

    I'm a Freshman in Highschool. I currently have A's in Computer Concepts, English I, and nearly an A+ in Spanish I. I have mid-level B's in Geometry, Biology, and Modern World History.
    I consider myself to do pretty well socially, as well.

    I don't actively play sports, but I still consider myself to be decently athletic. I'd say I'm a fairly decent soccer player, even though I won't be playing on any official team. I also think I'm pretty good at basketball, I'm well enough to be a fairly good player in P.E., and when chillin' with friends.

    I smoke weed a lot. You all have the socially implemented wrong idea about us stoners. We don't go around smoking, then getting in fights, doing dangerous things, ect. That's all put there by the Media, although I won't lie, occasionally there is a dumbass that does a dumbass move, but it's never happened in my experience.

    tl;dr version:

    I believe marijuana has a positive effect on my life.

    I thought the other section was more suitable, as I'm not asking for advice, nor help, but I'm content nonetheless.

    As Brian said, let's see how this turns out in twenty years.

    You think weed has a positive effect on your life because, as you said, you smoke it a lot and must be so high you never really bother to think about the long term effects. You may not know this now because you're still hooked on it, but a weed addiction is, as I've been told by quite a few stoners, incredibly hard to break.

    Thus, you're probably going to keep smoking it, and you obviously have no idea the effects it can have on your brain, especially long term.

    I highly doubt loss of higher brain function will be fun.
