Its legal in my state of Washington. I smoke almost every day. I absolutely love it. Much better than drinking. I still love my beer, but weed helps me sleep and thats a big deal to me. And now that its legal, there are all kinds of crazy things they are coming up with. You can vape it, take it in pill form, smoke it, eat it, drink it....You do not have to labeled as a smoker to enjoy the benefits of weed. It just has a stigma to it, although now that its legal I am finding it hard to find people who are actually opposed to it. Just be smart about it. I dont smoke and drive. I dont go to work stoned. I dont have my kid every other weekend and sit there baked out of my skull. Its no different than anything else. Moderation is key.

Obesity in America is a much higher concern than weed.

The drug itself is not dangerous, the strongest evidence suggests heavy prolonged use may contribute to lower iq and increased risk of developing mental disorders in young people (<24~), In adults (that did not use cannabis during adolescence) there is virtually no evidence that it has significant longterm side effects on the user regardless of the amount used.

While this may be undesirable that young people are at increased risk if it is legalized, consider that childhood diabetes and obesity(as mentioned by DerSchniffles) have a far greater impact on the longterm success and health of people. Eating in excess is probably more dangerous to your longterm health than smoking weed 5 times a day.

Due to this , I cannot think of any reason it should be illegal, and or should be treated as a harmful substance. Seems rather unjust to imprision people for wanting to relax in their spare time or desire relief from pain and other medical conditions.

There should still be restrictions of course (operating heavy machinery ect) due to its short term effects.

Over here in Belgium it's in some grey legal area.

In some cities the cops won't do anything unless you're doing something stupid like smoking in front of a school (then they will kindly ask you first to move somewhere else).

In other cities they will arrest you.

It should simply be legalized with restrictions similar to alcohol.

I don't smoke it, never did.I just hate the smell.But i hate with a passion drunk people pissing all over and smell even worse.
Moderation is the key.It is a big thing to admit a certain level of hypocrisy, and do something about it.
I enjoy a drink now and then, so i safely assume that someone, outhere can also enjoy weed.I still have to hear at the news that a stoned person caused havoc, killed people or harmed oneself, like drunk people do.
Just tax it, put some restrictions, and maybe everyone has to benefit.

I've tried it a few times, it tastes disgusting in your mouth and yea it kinda smells.

Once i smoked too much, i took to many hits and it was a heavy one, it felt amazing at first but then got really sick and puked a lot.
Never took it again, but it was my own stupid fault to take so much as a beginner.

There are very different types of weed. I don't like the heavy ones either, I prefer the slow relaxing ones.

The relaxing ones are also better against pain imo.

I'm actually thinking of asking my doctor if i can smoke it for anxiety cause i heard marijuana is a good medicine for it.
Cause the medicine i have now is just temporary as it stops working later on. (oxazepam)

Just like alcohol, you need to build a tolerance to weed. When you first start, you get rocked pretty hard every time but as your tolerance builds up, it becomes much more medicinal and you become quite a bit more functional. You can smoke more without feeling completely useless. When I smoke, I usually start with 2 bowls...for someone who has never smoked, that would completely destroy them haha. When I first started smoking, I could take 2 or 3 tokes and be messed up and then I could come back in 2 hours and finish the rest of the bowl.

Just remember to start slow and find your limits and be comfortable. If you want to smoke for anxiety, you cant start off tough and expect it to work. You might get more anxiety if you get ripped out of your mind without building a tolerance. Start off with 1 bong rip and just see how it feels and if its working for you or not. A high tolerance can take a couple months, so there is no need to rush. And for you, having a high tolerance may be counter productive to what you are using it for.

Also, try different methods of using it. I know alot of my friends like it in vape form and swear by it. I think its terrible. I dont get the full feeling and it takes way to much for me to actually get the high I am looking for. Some people love dabs or crush or edibles. I personally just use a bong. It feels the best, has good flavor (again, like beer its an acquired taste), and has just the right amount of high for me.

Enjoy!

That was just campaigning by world-praised fiasco Pepe Mujica.
The law was passed in 2013. Four years later, there's still to be a pharmacy that has ever sold marijuana.
If I remember correctly it's because no pharmacy owners had to deal with the thing.

I'm glad it's illegal.

The problems facing the Human Race cannot be solved by intoxification and the inability to conduct analysis of these problems, or perform critical thinking.

All drugs, and toxins; need to be removed - yes I include alcohol in that bitter statement.

"Uninvent" them, would be my choice = since that is impossible, a shotgun to the face of the person in possession of any toxin (including alcohol) and the person standing next to them. That would probably be a good place to start.

No, I'm not joking - and if any of you want to rant about booze. Tell you what. Go pay a visit to the nearest emergency room on a Saturday morning @ 2AM and go rant at the children who just lost their parents to a drunk driver - and them come back here and rant at me on the internet, like that is going to convince me otherwise, anyway.

Medical weed - not needed. The pharmaceutical companies out there have gotten their weed-extract drugs APPROVED and that argument is therefore VOID.

There is no need whatsoever in any way for any human being to intoxicate themselves. End of argument, story, whatever. If you want to get high, invent warp speed and go to another planet and don't let the lack of a Heisenberg compensator squish you on your way out...

In a perfect world where, "you the individual" are in control of everything?...cool sure.
But reality is much different...I toke till my eyes wide shut, until your "utopia" manifests itself.

Check this just for kicks if you wish...dude speeding down a highway at 6 am, approaching an area known to have pedestrians crossing regularly as the market is across the street.Poor people area, it's no secret.Mother and two daughters, 7 and 12 yrs old, waiting to cross.Dude loses control, jumps the curb killing all three.The police reach on the scene and secures (not arrests) the driver who is now a murderer.Why? One of their own, but off duty.Never hear of the story again but the Gov't gives the poor people of the area a walkover.Case fkn closed right?...and that's just one story.

There's a reason I renamed my location....reality sucks hard for a lot of the worlds' peoples...I escape into my brain for the ones who can't...those are my thoughts.

I sometimes wonder if we are indeed nothing more than a virus on this planet, as a race all we seem to do is consume and destroy, be it the planet, the other life forms on it, each other, or ourselves, and we always find ways to justify it, we are a strange species, no doubt about it.

Learn history (not the 5 minute clips on youtube) and it becomes quite clear who the viruses are or better yet, who introduced viruses to the indigenous peoples all over the world, during their explorations/exploits.
