- feeling of depression and anxiety may become stronger once high has worn off
- feelings of apathy may increase after use
- decreases motivation to accomplish tasks
- decreases ability to connect with non-medicated individuals
For every one of these lame ass studies you have been quoting...there are more that say they are wrong--

It seems to have different effects on everybody. If medicating helps you, take the negative study results with a grain of salt.

of course, people make money off of marijuana. quoting studies about the dangers of tobacco to a tobacco farmer would likely get the same type of responses

this is a healing plant, not the harmfull drug you claim it to be.
even with heavy use it doesn't even come close to the dangers of alcohol & cigarettes.

i went along with what doctors/psychiatrists told me to take for almost a decade and it ruined my life more then you can believe.

5 years going strong without that shit in my body and what do i have to thank for my regaining mental health? CANNABIS!

don't try to fool us with this crap

For me, I have a hard time relating to other people if I'm NOT high.

In a group of (sugar-addled, caffeine-numbed, percoset-chomping, cigarette smoking, etc.) "sober" people, I am at my best (friendly, chatty, looking-on-the-bright-side) when I am slightly baked.

I rarely drink, unless you count a shot of Green Dragon Everclear every now and again. (One shot lasts all day!)

When I am sober I am often seen as "glowering", "pessimistic", "cranky", "knowitall", "asshole" (Hence "Anti".)

I try to do the rest of the world a favor and stay high as often as possible.

Prescription pills lead to addictions and withdrawals.

marijuana has pros and cons just as cigarettes, alcohol, and pills do.

For real, my girlfriend - a non-smoking, non-drinker - encourages my smoking. For her sake.

On the con side... if you smoke too much for too long, you can end up with COPD, which is bad news. If you alternate your smoking with vaping/medibles, you can avoid this. Don't be the guy who takes the biggest bong load and never coughs. That shit DOES come back to haunt you. Sensibility in all things.

Too much water will kill you.

i concur, wtf are sober people?

i often need about 5 tokes in the morning to stop wanting to blow up the world
I try to do the rest of the world a favor and stay high as often as possible.
ditto and i have to say, after 20 years of heavy smoking, thanks to cannabis for being cannabis

any problems?

yeah, assholes with power and the assmonkeys that keep them there

yeah i agree, everything in moderation,dont take huge tokes, if you are at that point, quit for a few months, then start again with small tokes.

ive been smoking 20 years and i take half a fingernails worth in every bowl.

see after that break, you will get the same high from that as from the huge bowls (i quit for 7 months)

and i betcha if you take huge bowls, its not because you ever felt less high from smaller, i betcha ya started in big bowls cause all yer friends were doing it

and once ya were doing the big bowls and accustomed to it , yer tolerance was through the roof and could accept anything else.
