    it's also been banned in most parts of the US because it was a challenge to try and tax it back in the day.

    But marijuana never has an excessively negative effect on people. The worst it does is extreme paranoia which wears off after a few hours at most. It has no violent effect or anything. Marijuana addicts might raid your fridge, but they'll never rob your bank.

    Well its depends on the strain of weed, and remember with banning weed you ban products of weed, like different shits like spice n stuff, which has aggressive side effects.

    A latecomer to the debate, but I'd say that in certain circumstance it would be a very good thing to have. I personally knew a woman (now passed on), who had an averse reaction to opiates, meaning that she couldn't take morphine, which was a serious issue once she contracted bone marrow cancer. So I'm going to say, yes it should be, but under similar rules that govern morphine, so that it can only (legally) be used for medical purposes.

    I voted undecided, and here's my reason:

    I honestly could not care less if people want to take drugs. Shoot yourself with heroin(e?) every day for all I care. It becomes an issue for me when it is either pushed onto others, or affects others in the slightest. If someone doesn't like the smell of your joint (or even your cigarette) and you're standing in a public space, move. Don't run around telling everyone how great it is, that they should try it etc. You do you, but keep you to you.

    I'm sure that it has some advantages when it comes to certain ailments. I don't think it beats "most" though.

    Well, I was mostly referring to like pain killers, which can f you up if you're not careful. Of course it wasn't meant to come across as me calling it a cure for all, that's alcohol :D

    Hah! Touché.

    Yeah, painkillers are a lifesaver and killer. Balance is where it's at.

    I personally try to stay away from most pain killers of any kind unless I'm desperate.

    I had a maths teacher like that when I was in school. Never willingly took a painkiller in his life. Must have made the rest of us seem like little fairies.

    eh, if it's super bad, or keeping me from sleeping, I will. but otherwise I just either sleep it off, or in the case of heartburn, drink some milk first. if it doesn't work, then antacids

    I used to have pretty bad heartburn, then it just kinda stopped. Haven't thought of it 'till now.

    cause water is rather blah, and candy tastes too good lol. my heartburn is purely from eating and drinking stuff that is not good for me. if I can cut out soda again, it'll go away real quick.

    Oh.. One doesn't just cut out soda. I'm incredibly hooked on Energy drinks currently, it's spiralling out of control. From Tuesday I'm cutting them completely. I've no problem with other sodas, but flipping monster will be the death of me.

    Yea, I had to force myself to cut down on all that too, cause it was getting too pricy for me. Only from time to time do I still have a Monster, especially if I'm trying to game all night lol
