    "But why is 1+1 2?"

    "Why is the equals sign 2 straight lines...what do they represent?"

    "why is 1 the first number? who made it that"

    Speaking of which.......had my hair cut yesterday by a hairdresser who quite clearly did not know what deodorant is for.

    I wanted to gag but was petrified to move on account of his wielding a cut-throat under my chin at the time. He looked like a cross between Borat and Freddie Mercury.

    Not the case at all, have you ever actually smoked weed?

    Not a help, unlikely to be a hinderance. If you just use it sometimes like how people do with drink, then I don't see how it would hinder anything. That said cannabis is an absolutely horrible drug in every capacity to be honest. There's no point at which it feels pleasant, it's either nothing at all or it's horrible.

    What would help studies is amphetamine or methamphetamine, if you didn't become addicted.

    I don't think I'm knowledgable or 'experienced' enough to make a call on weather cannabis is a good thing in general, but I don't think it's anywhere near as bad as other drugs and honestly wouldn't have too much issues if somebody I knew were using it (except for it currently being illegal). Don't really see any issues with it being made legal either tbh. Probably no worse than alcohol and that's legal so... yeah.

    As for it being helpful or not, there is a lot of stuff coming to light about the potential benefits of parts of the cannabis plant (like CBD oil) so it seems it at least has a lot of potential.
    Actually, I've recently decided to try CBD oil myself to see if it helps with some chronic pains I have. CBD oil doesn't contain THC btw so isn't psychoactive like cannabis and is perfectly legal.

    You cant overdose on weed, well you can but no one can smoke 1500 pounds at once so you cant really overdose on it. For me personally, I haven't experienced any paranoia or anxiety and I've been consuming for nearly everyday for the past 3-4 years. It doesn't really cause any bad effects depending on how you smoke it, if you smoke it with tobacco then of course you'll get the effects of smoking tobacco depending on how much you use it and how much you smoke it, my lung capacity has increased from smoking it by bongs and playing games (say Mind Of A Stoner= 4, 2 ,1 6, where you take the amount of tokes for the amount of letters in the word then pass it on and not letting your smoke out until you cant hold it or finish the game) which trains you to hold your breath for a longer period of time.

    It can help you concentrate, to sleep if you having difficulties and medical benefits as well. With it being legalized you can get rid of the dealers who spray and lace it with other things which can include cocaine and heroin which are of course Class A drugs which are terribly much more worse then weed, with it legalized you can get rid of all of the bad strains and get higher quality and cleaner buds.

    This will also reduce the amount of crime as there will be les dealers about to sell illegally and that people who are carrying it wont get arrested, it will stop the police wasting time on weed related crimes as really is not a public disturbance or causing any trouble to people. It will obviously boost the economy too as it will attract more people to come to the UK, most probably London it will be so the economy will be much better. Since it would be legal you can treat people with it instead of the other ways of treatment which will cost more and could put the patients in more pain with the regular treatments,

    For the people who do suffer from paranoia, addiction, anxiety, you could can help them by putting them in treatment to actually get them the help they need, instead of prosecuting them for smoking it, as I said above it will stop police wasting time stopping teenagers on the street for smoking it and could build better relations with the youth and police as they wont be stopping them for no reason at all apart from the fact they think they might have something on them.

    Of course people say smoking can make you dopey, well you can have laws like; you cant be high in work, driving while high is illegal to stop it having effects on these type of situations. With laws like these there wont be any dangerous drivers (obviously ones who have smoked it and who are currently driving) or people who are to stoned to work.

    It can help your creativity and imagination flourish when you smoke it as you feel. think and act different (of course your whole character and personality doesn't change completely but it brings out more of the real you as it can make people more confident).

    For people who haven't smoked it you can't comment on the effects of weed as you don't know first hand what they are or how you'll re-act to it. The effects for me is; feeling more relaxed, feeling happier if I'm down, makes social situations more funnier and more bearable to be in as it makes you more social able, as stated above again it can help you sleep better. If you wouldn't want to smoke it all the time you could just smoke it at night to make you feel good before you go to sleep and wake up refreshed in the morning, in school it helps me to focus more and block out all of the distractions that are around me so I get more work done in school( I know I said about it not being allowed in the work place but I find it helps me work better in a work type environment)

    There's also no recorded deaths from in taking weed as you cant overdose the amount you'd have to take is way to much for anyone to smoke at once. if you compare it to alcohol which make people aggressive, sick and a trouble for people, it also causes a lot of death and liver problems where as weed doesn't cause any of this, you'd just chill out and eat a pizza and have fun.

    Of course there's one problem which is price, in this time, £10 will get you 1g and depending on how you smoke it can get you between 1-3 spiff's, zoots, joint whatever you wanna call it. Of course £20 will get you 2 grams and so on. If you limit yourself £10 can last you 1-3 days.

    Ill throw in some terms that people actually use and not ones that are rarely used; £10 worth can be called; Benz, Tenz or Draw. £20 worth is; 8ball or 8th or draw again depending on where you from, £60 worth; Q, Quart or quarter which is 7g's of weed. £110 worth; A half which is 14g's of weed and about £220 worth is; Ounce or a Z which is around 28g's.. then there's Kilos, 9 bars which are just so expensive.

    My bad about this long ass post I didn't plan or writing this much lmao, well there's my opinion on it. It should be legalized its just a plant.
