Smoking weed despite largely a youth thing has now caused it's taboo. Weed being safer than Alcohol and Smoking according to the WHO, ( World HEALTH Orginization ) but what would they know?

Strangely enough, Weed does not cause lung damage, more people quit than both smoking and alcohol and mental decline is unlikely. But hey, if people in the past didn't know about it then it's right for me not to know about the fact weed is safer than many legal drugs no doubt including Viagra, aspirin and others.

What retort could you possibly bring to that? I represented you with facts? Seriously pot should be legalised and made even safer. I like how media has changed from saying

-Pot is bad
-What they put in pot is bad and they put this stuff in pot because it's illegal and more profit if it contains glass... so the medias response is making it seem worse and thus not help the case to legalise it.

I smoke every day, mostly from a Vape. I try to stay healthy :). Anyway I'm 25 and I have owned my own home for 2 years. You can still be very successful even if you are a stonner.

Youth these days... lol yeah we are terrible, doing everything better in life while high as fuck. I'm ashamed...

OT: Play games and shop online.

Even though its completely off topic, thought I'd throw in my two cents on the whole smoking weed stuff.

Basically I smoked weed for about 6 years and it didn't do me any good. It made me lazy, unmotivated and pretty damn depressed as well. You realise the changes in yourself once you stop. I found I was less distant with people, more involved with conversations with far more witty.

To quote the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone: "The truth is, marijuana probably isn't going to make you kill people. Most likely isn't going to fund terrorists, but pot makes you feel fine with being bored and it's when you're bored that you should be learning a new skill or some new science or being creative. If you smoke pot you may grow up to find out that you're not good at anything."

Have to agree with them on that.

Oh and I'll be spending my Christmas enjoying my time off work and, as the list said, catching up on some games that I haven't completed *looks at Yakuza 3*
