GIBB0 - There's no doubt that for some people heavy pot smoking has a net positive impact on their lives.

But there's also others for whom its a negative and its used to avoid problems rather than solve them, similar to how some addicts use alcohol, drugs, eating, video games or whatever their addiction of choice is.

Smoking pot, in general, is not a bad thing, if done right. Which is a statement that can apply to a lot of things, obviously.

The only thing that annoys me is that there's a culture where excessive pot smokers (to the point of it being negative) are told that its great and generally other pot users don't advertise that there is a point where it can be abused. Compared to say alcohol where everyone knows you need to make sure you don't abuse it and alcoholics generally see their habit as a negative once aware of it.

I actually think this is because its so demonized. People smoke and say "this isn't bad like I've been told my whole life". But I think if it was honestly portrayed in the media we could focus on saying that its not a bad thing, but be careful not to abuse it rather than acting like any use is a problem. We're making a grey issue black or white, which separates everyone in to two teams. Phone Post 3.0

Awesome.

Weed does have a point of diminishing returns. Weed addiction is just below porn addiction in terms of harm to society and the user.

The way I see it, medicine is medicine and you really have to be proactive in finding the proper dosage.

checkuroil - I agree with OP.

Reality is scary for potheads. The feelings of fear depression anxiety etc rush in. Finding how to enjoy life is difficult. Gotta alter reality.

More studies are coming out about the way weed changes the brain. Rest assured, potheads will ignore it because they will defend their addiction to the death. Phone Post 3.0

None of them said it changes it for the worst. Coffee and french fries "change the brain". You probably didn't get past 9th grade with your immense logic and reasoning skills :-)

Funny enough I have a masters in psychology. I already posted the Harvard study that came out last week showing marijuana affects the reward center in the brain that is responsible for motivation. Phone Post 3.0

Yet, you have engineers and other successful people posting here defending pot. How does it affect motivation exactly?

Also, they could be self-medicating other issues. If the trade off between smoking pot and suffering from an illness is worth the down sides, then I'll take the pot.

Don't you take medication with side effects?
I work with a lot of engineers, and it isn't necessarily a compliment.

Exceptions aren't rules. Smoking is better for people who've already become successful. The chances of becoming a success while smoking as a kid, through school and into adulthood aren't very....high. Phone Post 3.0

Also, went past retard with his half-baked (pun intended) pseudo-science:

 

Using high–resolution MRI imaging, scientists identified specific changes in particular regions of the brain that they inferred were likely due to marijuana exposure. (Since researchers only performed a single MRI session, they could not say definitively whether these changes were, in fact, caused by cannabis or whether they existed prior to subjects’ use of the plant.) Notably, however, these changes did not appear to be associated with any overt adverse effects in subjects’ actual cognition or behavior. (Separate studies assessing youth use of legal intoxicants, such as nicotine and alcohol, have also been associated with documented changes in brain structure. Ditto for caffeine intake in preclinical models. These findings have received far less media attention.)

Both the cases (20 marijuana users) and controls (20 nonusers) in the study were recruited from local universities, undermining the notion that the alleged ‘brain damaged potheads’ were any more academically challenged than their non-using peers. Further, as summarized by HealthDay: “Psychiatric interviews revealed that the pot smokers did not meet criteria for drug dependence. For example, marijuana use did not interfere with their studies, work or other activities, and they had not needed to increase the amount they used to get the same high.”

 

(DERPPPP)

In other words, case subjects and controls appeared to function similarly in their professional and academic endeavors.

That is the same thing I think about cigarette smokers. And when fat people congregate at a restaurant. Couldn't you fat fucks eat at home instead of me having to look at your skintags and ripped clothing. Or smoked your cancer in your car with the windows up. Think about the precious air!

My roommate is definitely #2. Literally the only thing he does without smoking beforehand is go to work.
