    Hello all. I know we've all heard debates regarding marijuana. Do you think it is as harmful as sources say? Do you think it should be legalized? Is it any worse than alcohol or tabacco? Any views are appreciated. :smokin:

    Peace


    There's nothing wrong with the "herb". Some religions use it for spiritual reasons. It's also used for medical reasons plus, many Afrikan and Native American cultures have been using this plant since the beginning of time. Like Peter Tosh said "LEAGALIZE IT!" :smokin:

    it may be true and all but i have always felt it was not as good for the human body
    where it may help medically it's harmful to other parts like entering the brain cells
    it's no worse then other harmful stuff like tabacco & alcohol it should be banned
    the use of it leads many too harder addition and drugs once this no longer give that
    feelings one seeks, this herbal plant can be harmful to the body organs but i heard
    it was good for the eyes and other parts as it hurt parts of a human body ...........

    I love to hear more on this as i learn .

    Hey, thanks for the responses. I don't think, in my opinion, that it is any worse than tobacco or alcohol. Actually, I have heard and read just the opposite. I've read that it is less harmful than alcohol or tabacco. Alcohol and tabacco hurt other parts of the body and are more addictive than marijuana. Alcohol damages organs and causes liver disease. Tabacco causes lung cancer, bronchitis and emphysemia. One out of every two heavy smokers are killed by tabacco. Marijuana could affect the respiratory system if used heavy over a long period of time...from what I have read. Also, it lower ambitions if used a lot. Of course there are studies to support either fact. I don't think that it should be ilegal if alcohol and tabacco are so easy to get.

    Why is it that some folk in our community continue to perpetuate this love affair with marijuana ??? If I hear one more comic on BET or one more rap/hip hop song endorsing it's usage... lawd have mercy. The worst part about it is that these are the very people that alot of our youngin's idolize and look to for examples of what it is to be kewl or "down" . But these so-called celebrities shouldn't shoulder all the blame. It's right up there in the running with PS2 and XBox for the most favored past time of basement dwelling ambitionless short term memory loss suffering older brothers, cousins, and uncles across america :huh:

    Although it may not seem very harmful physically, weed has been shown to be the gate way drug for narcotics such as crack and heroine. Most folk don't just start off shooting up or hitting the pipe. So ultimately it could prove to be very dangerous.

    However, in the case of folk who are suffering the extreme pain of terminal cancer, AIDS, MS, and other fatal conditions, I believe they should be allowed to utilize it for it's analgesic effect without risk or worry of prosecution or persecution.


    Much Peace,
    Akilah :spinstar:

    Legalize it!

    The tap water from your sink is harmful
    Legalize it, it ain’t go’n away
    This can also keep a lot of our people
    From go’n to prison

    The “warming labels” are on cigarettes

    we came through the 60's, we know
    first hand what it did for the "movement"
    and meditation

    Like our dear brother Bob Marley stated
    "Legalize it!"

    Other countries have


    Revolutionary Luv!!!
