    Depends entirely on how strong the weed is. In terms of day to day, you're pretty much ****** whilst under the influence.

    Meh, it's not much more dangerous than smoking. Obviously if you smoked it every day for a long period of time, it would affect your personality, but then if you smoked tobacco everyday for a long period of time it would affect your body....

    One of my friends has basically destroyed himself by smoking every day over a long period of time. He's literally only half there at any one point, and I can't see him leaving his factory job any time before he dies.

    If you're not an idiot, and use in moderation, it's not so bad.

    Tbh it's no worse than tobacco or alcohol but the government classes it as illegal because it can't tax it because it can be grown almost anywhere. The government doesn't care about your 'well being' it just wants money off you, if it did then alcohol and cigarettes would be illegal.

    Well in bulk it would end up being cheaper due to the 400% tax on ****.

    Long term continuous use of marijuana leads to a degradation in synaptic connection - i.e it means that literally, you think slower. It's more difficult for the brain to translate and develop thought - it's also known to trigger underlying psychotic and mental problems - like paranoia and schizophrenia.
