    If you like, but I think it will be futile, I can link you to studies enacted on human subjects in direct correlation with marijuana use. It's a sprawling overgeneralisation to make that only mice are employed for marijuana related studies. No one is under the presumption that mice are exactly the same as humans, but the correlation between some sectors of the human genome and the genetic construction of mice exists. Strong molecular connection between individual genes on the genome and specific developmental processes in both mice and men are the founding premise upon why we test on mice in some situations. And it is within those boundaries, in the similarities, that tests can be fairly conducted and if not used as substantial claims on their own, to support studies used on humans.

    As for your plant 'sent by God' claim, cocaine is extracted and manufactured from coca leaves. I get the sentiment you were trying to convey but it doesn't hold water.

    how dangerous would you consider marijuana?

    as in mental health
    becoming addicted
    its effect on your day to day basis
    Probably less dangerous than constantly barfing up your dinner and having cuts and bruises from drinking alcohol. You see, that's why everything should be done in moderation. People like to talk up how dangerous skunk is and ignore the strain alcohol has on society. As far as I know, skunk hasn't killed anyone but I've lost an ex-classmate to alcohol.

    If he wanted fallacious nonsense he would've done that already.

    It pays to have a sig like mine :woo:

    Actually, it doesn't. It's a total waste of time. People don't seem to consider it at all actually :hmmm:

    Can never be too careful. I think my response works whether you're being sarcastic or not, though, reinforcing the point and all that.
