No bad side effects to "good marijuana", errr that's utter utopia and completely wrong. No bad side effects to good tobacco is as much a wrong statement by the way.

@ Zero, few weeks ago a baby was killed by a driver who smoked marijuana, and you got this kind of dramas very often, in my country it's one of the main causes of deadly car accidents (about 1/5 of all car accidents causing death are due to weed). So please, stop with the "weed is cool and never causes any damages to others".

We will stop with the weed is cool, if you quit believing the propaganda from the turn of the century that vilified marijuana. As far as harmful effects go, it is no worse than alcohol or tobacco on a persons body. Yet because of a campaign that made it seem like it was one of the worst things on the planet, by the same people who kept snuff boxes full of cocaine mind you, most people have grown up the the perception that weed=hard drugs. That is a completely weak train of thought. It is a drug and should be controlled, but in much the same way tobacco and alcohol are controlled. A set of guidelines and laws on when and where you can smoke.

Jim, if you please, I would like to see cited examples of this. Reputable news articles would do. Just be aware... Any article you can find me proving marijuana has caused harm, I will find evidence one hundred fold that alcohol is far more harmful to society.

I don't think a single person here has said "Weed is cool" It is just being compared to a far more harmful and destructive legal drug, and the harm caused by weed pales in comparison to the harm caused by said legal drug. That is an undisputable fact. This is not due to the fact that less people consume it either. Marijuana is the most common illicit drug, the most affordable, the most accessible, and the LEAST harmful of them all. Millions upon millions have tried it... If there was going to be evidence to come out that marijuana was as harmful as alcohol, it would be here by now. It's not.

Marijuana is awesome, but like anything should be used responsibly! I'd rather drive around stoners than drunks or texters because they are paranoid and more vigilant though perhaps slower.

I'd rather drive around sober drivers only.

But point taken.
