    I bumped into a friend the other day in the street and he was excited to show me his new e-cig style "snoop dog" vaporiser, cost him £100+ and it looked like one of the standard cheapo e-cigs lol. He opened it and just had ground up bud resting on the coils.............. I pretended I thought it was cool. :wanker:

    found it.. awful.. http://www.grencoscience.com/products/snoopdogg

    Oh wow it has "a scientifically-hardened glass sleeve" :infinity:

    Eating fatty food and not smoking or drinking ever in your entire life will (not can) do extensive irreparable damage to your liver.

    Your point is what?

    I am all for it.


    Funny thing.. society is. The biggest push back a few decades ago.. to ban the use of marijuana, spread like wild fire under the terms "reefer madness".. which actually pertained to our Spanish, and African communities here in the US. It was used to install fear into the lives of everyday people.. stating that certain people, were driven mad by smoking pot.

    Never happened. But.. to this day, the after effects of this purely racial, political campaign.. keeps striking fear into everyone's hearts! Needless to say.. it was a very successful campaign at the time.

    Now.. we have the War on Drugs... inspired by this racial legislation... again, a complete and utter failure. Locking people up because they haven't done anything more than our southern folk, grinding up mash and cookin' it for some moonshine.

    Alcohol does two things. Kills living cells, cleans up grease, oil.. engine parts.. etc.

    Tobacco: cannot be consumed in any fashion, that won't cause cancer.

    Now.. having said that, there are three major types of marijuana.

    Hemp: used in everything from skin oils, to concrete bricks, military outfits.. and people have even started building cars from it. One field of hemp, can replace an entire forest of trees when it comes to producing paper.

    Sativa, and Indica.

    Basically.. .your couch potato pot, and the other.. makes your brain fly! Yeah... gettin' stoned and cleaning your house.. without the dangerous side effects of melting down all your weight loss pills into meth.

    From those two.. comes an almost unlimited supply of crossbred plants that have cured cancer, ADHD.. arthritis.. oh hell, who we kiddin here? It has many.. many medical applications.

    On top of that... there has never been a death directly related to an overdose. Say that for aspirin, tylenol.. or moonshine... hell, you can drink more water in a day, and drown in it.. before you could smoke enough to kill you.

    The facts are there.. take them or leave them.

    But if an owner of a basketball team, can lose his life over a racial slur... isn't it time to get marijuana out from under the same limelight?


    edit: oh.. and yes, they have created a strain .. that can repair not only damaged brain cells.. but liver cells as well! Pop open another budweiser.. let's all drink to that!

    If you don't care about the quality, sure, growing weed is easy. Some outdoor strains can even thrive on their own with little or no interaction (though deer like to eat them).

    For the most part though, growing really good weed takes experience and some effort. It also takes equipment as well as soil ingredients, all of which are taxed. Then there's power consumption. The average person couldn't/wouldn't bother with growing their own weed, just like the average person isn't making their own beer/alcohol.

    The word you are looking for is "you're". Maybe you should smoke less :)

    Buzz kill :cop:

    I don't actually smoke because I get random drug screening at work. It should be legal end of story. It's a waste of tax dollars enforcing laws against drugs that could be used elsewhere.

    I only smoke every once in awhile, I don't like being baked all the time. My wife on the other hand has been prescribed all kinds of pills from the doctor but prefers to smoke. I prefer my wife smoking she's a lot more stable.

    It's not harmless but banning it is kind of hypocritical considering we don't ban alcohol.

    Imo it needs to be legalized but morally and legally treated as alcohol is now, with rules and limitations.

    I think when folks say "harmless" they mean it's non-lethal. I would classify it as less-harmful than all other popular drugs. It can't kill you but it could potentially make you do something stupid where you end up dead as a direct result (though alcohol still trumps it by 100 fold there, probably more).

    Make it legal. That would free up HUGE resources to go get the crack,heroin etc. dealers. Billions of dollars would be made available for education and whatever else is needed to stop the real bad guys. Pot never hurt ANYONE! I've smoked it for almost 40 years. Not every day,but as often as I can get it.

    Some doctor decided it would be a good idea to put my wife on Adderall to help her with her ADD and depression. It almost destroyed her life and our marriage. Prescription drugs do much more harm to people and society than weed ever could.

    I believe marijuana should at least be de-criminalized. The thought of people being sent to jail/prison with hardcore criminals over some weed is just ludicrous...

    even tho it's not legalized, people are getting it, right?

    maybe the fed should ban suicide as well. lol

    I reckon weed carries far more health implications than people realise.
    It made me depressed for years when I was a habitual heavy user.

    I suppose if it was legalised the cannabinoids could be more greatly controlled.

    I'm from an era when resin was the norm and grass was a rarity. The strains of green that kick around now are dangerous and contain the bad psycho stuff where as old fashioned resins tended to contain the good happy laughy stuff.

    I see many young kids to day kicking around today paranoid out their minds but they don't know it, not for a moment contributing it to the weed.

    It's a hard one but if the proper strains were the only strains available I'd be for legalising it.
    I wouldn't be for it as a smokeable product though. An invisible chemical and air inhalation or an edible form far safer but unfortunately not quite as sociable as smoking.

    I'm against it all. I hate smoking (I can barely breath when someone smokes near me). I could totally live without alcohol too. I've never been drunk nor smoked anything and I plan to keep it that way. Personally I have no idea how people can drink to get drunk or use drugs (no matter how mild). Nothing beats the fresh air and having a clear head.
