    I like smoking te weeds, it gives me super powers....

    Seriously though, I don't get why people don't smoke...

    I know it's bad for your health etc. but im the type of guy that will try most things (within reason) at least once, whether it be smoking weed, wakeboarding, sky diving, playing golf etc because I want to live my life to the full and don't want to be deprived of new experiances...to be honest that would be a terrible waste of a life IMO

    Obviusly weed is relativley harmless (compred to alcohol etc) so I don't understand the people that are so dead against it, they won't even try it!

    I totally understand if you tried it, and hated it, but if you haven't tried it why knock it? Before people say it's bad for you or it's illegal, please stop and ask yourself why you drank when you were under age and still drink now...:rolleyes:

    I just want to know why people miss out on this awesome plant

    Unlike you, some people think jeopardizing your health (and life) isn't reasonable.
    Shocking, isn't it ?

    I have no rational reason, except maybe the illegality, I just don't want to and to me it seems a more risky thing to do than drinking, despite reports to the contrary. I also don't discredit anyone who smokes weed.

    I trid to make thinges simple for the feeble minded....*sigh*

    do you drink alcohol?

    and "jeopardizing your life" is a bit over the top since weed has NEVER killed anyone, yet alcohol kills hundreds of thousand per year...

    Are you one of those people that think having a toke will turn you into a junkie, but binge drinking is perfectly acceptable?

    LOL i got A* for english GCSE and A* for A-level eglish lang and lit combined...

    when you smoke weed, you realise that checking your spelling on a message board, full of 15 year old virgins, is pointless...try it some time, you may loosen up and see where i'm coming from!

    Weed is less addictive than those things, especially cigarrettes.....

    *and unless you are extremely weak minded you will not become addicted to it....

    ...
    Cannabis deadens the brain. I feel that having my mind and body in the best condition possible to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. I'll probably start smoking if I become a terminal patient or a broken old man if the need arises, but not before.

    All of my friends who started smoking pot got hooked on the stuff. A quarter of those addicts remained normal, if a bit sleepy at times, another quarter started showing sings of decay, and the rest became useless zombies. Two of them went to prison for it.

    So no thanks. Alcohol goes well with a meal or at a party, but drugs are for those who lack imagination and cigarettes are for those who lack willpower.

    It never killed anyone directly, big difference.

    And jeopardizing is a broader term than killing. You can fail at Uni / High school, and thus, jeopardize your life in a sense.

    Call me feeble minded if you want to, you fail to understand your mother tongue, and that's pretty feeble in my opinion.

    I don't drink alcohol either. I like being in control of my brain.

    And don't thank me, I do like educating retards once in a while.
