Links as to why weed isn't bad?

Discussion in 'Seasoned Marijuana Users' started by umopp, Jun 6, 2009.

  1. Well I've been on these forums for a while and I remember a while back someone had a fairly extensive list of reasons why weed isn't bad. I tried using the search option to find them but I couldn't find the list. I'm trying to use the info contained in those links for a discussion my psychology class is having about the legalization of weed. If any of you could help I would appreciate it. :)

    It's natural.

    It's got many medicinal benefits. It's different for everyone.

    It's not chemically addictive, but naturally addictive as any feel good drug is.

    Itr's proven to not cause long term brain damage at any tem of use.

    It's cheap, available.

    There's new articles every month or anytime dude, we're still learning new things about it. Just search NORML's website.

    http://insciences.org/article.php?article_id=4963

    It's never killed anyone.

    Not to mention how many things Hemp can be used for.

    It's been shown to medicinally help asthma patients, ironically. also ironically, i randomly googled that and immediately found this article from a news website in the city where i went to high school and first started smoking weed. wooooot

    an article you all might enjoy:

  8. Wow :eek:
    This forum should have a sticky containing a link to that..
     
  9. That argument that marijuana is natural, therefore is good, is completely void of any intelligence. Snake venom is natural and because so it's good? Come on wraughbit.
     
  10. Nicotine is also natural and kills thousands a day...

    Maybe his point is that, in comparison to laboratory-made medicines, marijuana is a more natural means of relief. That's not a void argument.


    It's also less unnatural/scary/foreign/harmful as, say, methamphetamine or another hard drug.... not a void argument when you're dealing with someone who thinks mj is as bad as any other drug.

    here, if you truly want to know..
    Here's a rough draft i wrote on marijuana's legalization... I say 'rough' because i'm not finished yet. I haven't added in the negatives (which are only less REM sleep (which is only negative in some people's cases, however), less lung capacity (very slightly less, and only if you smoke it, more susceptible to oral and lung infections (debatable though). I think that's all of them.

    Legalization of Cannabis Sativa, Commonly Known as Marijuana​

    \tCannabis sativa, commonly known as marijuana, is a plant species that is mainly known for its psychoactive effects when consumed – either through smoking, ingesting, or vaporizing. Being outlawed in most states by the year 1937 (Marijuana: The Facts), it has since been falsely accused with many negative side-effects... almost none being scientifically proven. It causes a knowledgeable person to wonder why marijuana is kept prohibited, while harmful substances such as alcohol and tobacco are kept legal and supported by the government subsidiaries. Basing its legalization on another fallacy is illogical. However, basing its justification on sheer evidence and practical morals is quite the contrast.
    \tThere are many common misconceptions on marijuana; its’ supposed physically addictive properties being one of them. The hype around marijuana’s addictiveness is misleading to the core. In fact, marijuana has shown to be the least addictive out of 6 commonly used drugs – caffeine, alcohol, heroin, cocaine, nicotine, and marijuana (Markoff). Studies show that it can actually help patients who are dependent on ‘hard’ drugs, such as cocaine, in the battle on their dependence (Hess). Not only are its physically addictive properties a misconception, but also its psychologically addictive properties:
    Studies have estimated that between 5 and 10% of those who try smoking cannabis will become daily users sometime during their life, but most of these smokers will have given up the habit by age 30 and few remain daily smokers after age 40. (Erowid)
    In fact, marijuana’s addictiveness is so highly disregarded by doctors that it is more than 3 times less addictive when compared to caffeine. Moreover, nicotine is more addictive than the 5 other drugs in the study – alcohol, heroin, cocaine, caffeine, and marijuana. In addition, alcohol is more addictive as well (Markoff). Making the addictive properties of marijuana a foundation in an argument supporting its prohibition is a true lapse in logic. When in comparison to the other 5 commonly used drugs, marijuana’s addiction is obviously insignificant. It leaves one standing shocked when pondering over the fact that nicotine and alcohol are still legal, even with proven negative side effects.
    \tAnother false belief of marijuana is its connection to various types of cancer, such as lung and oral cancer. This belief is supported by the fact that marijuana contains 50 percent more carcinogens (cancer causing substances) than tobacco (BBCNews). However, research has proven that marijuana use is not connected to a much higher risk of cancer. Many studies actually show no sign of increased risk at all (Boyles, Bates, Gardner). Surprisingly enough, marijuana use causes a positive affect on cancerous tumors. The main ingredient in marijuana, THC, has been attributed to this positive effect, says the American Association for Cancer Research. (AACR). Even more surprising, the government’s Drug Enforcement Administration) (DEA), learned of this positive effect after a 1974 study, only to halt the research and destroy its results. This study was next replicated in 2000, but this time the results were released (Cushing 1). The question of whether or not the government is truly looking out for our best interests comes to mind when presented with these facts.
    \t“Smoking marijuana makes you dumb”, or so the general populous believes. Yet again, this misconception of marijuana is disproved by research. It is believed that it causes brain cells to die (a common effect of alcohol intake). However, research says otherwise. Contrary to wide belief, marijuana use actually promotes neurogenesis - the growth of brain cells (University of Saskatchewan), and causes no negative cerebral structural changes (DeLisi).
    One of the major problems in today’s prescribed drugs is their addictive and harmful side-effects. A prime example is a prescribed painkiller known as OxyContin whose main ingredient is oxycodone. If used over a long period of time, oxycodone causes dependence in the user (Profile: Oxycodone). On the other hand, marijuana not only helps with chronic pain in many patients, but it also sidesteps the negative side effects that come along with most prescription painkillers (Weiss). It is morally wrong to allow patients to continually suffer from the negative side affects of their prescribed drugs, when there is a safe and logical alternative – marijuana. Not only does marijuana act as an analgesic, it also aids a variety, and can even prevent, of other illnesses. These include, but are not limited to: ADD/ADHD, Alzheimer’s, Anorexia, Arthritis, Asthma, Atherosclerosis, Chemotherapy, Diabetes, Depression, Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Heart and Cardiovascular Disease, Hepatits, Herpes, HIV and AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Neuropathic Pain, Osteoporosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and Post traumatic stress syndrome (Cannabis Research). With all of these different illnesses come consequences, which include their associated prescriptions. Like all prescriptions, one runs the risk of an accidental overdose. However, with marijuana there have been no reported overdoses. According to government authorities, one would have to either smoke 1/3 of their body weight within a time of 15 minutes ("Lethal Dose of Maijuana").
    \tWith marijuana’s multiple medicinal advantages, one may begin to wonder why it is prohibited. While the lungs exposure to marijuana smoke over causes a slight decrease in lung capacity (no research proves this thus far), there are safe alternatives. One way is through the means of ingestion. There are a variety of ways to prepare marijuana in food, and it is a perfectly safe alternative to smoking. Another perfectly safe alternative is the act of vaporizing.
    \tVaporization is a technique for avoiding irritating respiratory toxins in marijuana smoke by heating cannabis to a temperature where the psychoactive ingredients evaporate without causing combustion. You inhale a mist instead of actual smoke (Marijuana Vaporizers).
    This allows for the same medical and psychoactive benefits of marijuana, without any harmful toxins being inhaled into your lungs. It leads one to ask “Why not?”
    \tSadly, there are even more false arguments against marijuana use. The majority of people believe that if marijuana were to be legalized, it would cause many “high-driving” incidents. Supposedly, marijuana use hinders one’s driving ability. Yet again, ignorance is the disease, and research is the vaccine. In fact, marijuana use has actually shown to increase caution in drivers, as they are aware of their state of mind. This causes them to drive slower and less dangerously. Also, research has not been able to link a higher risk of a traffic collision in people who drive while under marijuana’s influence. For example, a recent study sponsored by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) involving analysis of nearly 2000 fatal accident cases, found 6.7 % of drivers positive for marijuana. In more than two-thirds of those, alcohol was present and may have been the primary contributor to the fatal outcome (Zimmer).
    \tAsides from refuting all of the misinformed arguments against marijuana, and stating its potential for being used for multiple medicinal reasons, there is yet another significant reason behind the legalization of marijuana – its nutritional benefits. The seeds of marijuana, known as hemp seeds, contain all of the amino acids none to man, which includes 8 that the human body can't make, and 2 which the body can't make in sufficient quantity. If you are knowledgeable about seeds, then you can respond with a quizzical reply of “well, they aren't the only seeds that consist of all of the amino acids... Flax seeds, and many others, do as well.” True, but the significance in the hemp seed doesn't lie solely in the fact that it contains all amino acids, but that 65% of the hemp seed's is globulin edistin. That is the largest percentage of globulin edistin in any substance known in the plant kingdom Here's a quick note on globulin edistin protein:
    “Globulins are one of seven classes of simple proteins. Simple proteins are constructed from amino acids and contain no non-protein substances. Globulins are in seeds and animal blood. Edistins are found in seeds; serum globulin is in blood. Edistins are plant globulins. And globulins along with albumins are classified as globular proteins. All enzymes, antibodies, many hormones, hemoglobin and fibrogin (the body converts fibrogin into non-soluble, fibrin, a blood clotting agent) are globular proteins. They carry out the main work of living.”
    and:
    “Globulin is the third most abundant protein in the human body. Globulins perform many enzymatic (causing reactions to take place) functions within the plasma itself. More importantly, they are responsible for both the natural and acquired immunity a person has against invading organisms. The body uses globulin proteins to make antibodies which attack infecting agents (antigens) that invade the body. Globulins like gamma globulin are absolutely essential to maintain a healthy immune system. They neutralize alien microorganisms and toxins.”
    And, finally:
    “Since hemp seed protein is 65% globulin edistin, and also includes quantities of albumin, its protein is readily available in a form quite similar to that found in blood plasma. Eating hemp seeds gives the body all the essential amino acids required to maintain health, and provides the necessary kinds and amounts of amino acids the body needs to make human serum albumin and serum globulins like the immune enhancing gamma globulins. Eating hemp seeds could aid, if not heal, people suffering from immune deficiency diseases. This conclusion is supported by the fact that hemp seed was used to treat nutritional deficiencies brought on by tuberculosis, a severe nutrition blocking disease that causes the body to waste away.“ (Osburn 14-15)
    Not only does cannabis possess all of the essential amino acids with 65% of its protein being globulin edistin, it ALSO consists of the two essential fatty acids, EFAs, that the humans require – Omega 3 and Omega 6. To add on to this picture of perfection, in a study analyzing the optimum ratio for Omega 3 and Omega 6 consumption, hemp seed oil is the closest to this golden ratio. A reminder for the importance of EFAs as well:
    “EFAs are utilized by many of the body's systems to maintain proper tissue function. EFAs are required for energy production, proper functioning of the nervous system, brain development and function, skin health and elasticity, digestive efficiency, normal cardiovascular function, hormone production, and efficient immune response. Studies have shown that GLA improves memory, and overall mental health, as well as reducing symptoms of skin ailments like eczema and even fibrocystic disease.” (“Hemp Seed Nutrition”)
    \tIt is morally and logically wrong for the continued prohibition of marijuana. If one does not condone research as the foundation of the legalization of any potentially harmful substance, then what? Marijuana use should be legal within the private confines of an individual’s house. If not legal for all, marijuana should be legal as a medical drug for peoples in all 50 states. Marijuana has been proven safe and its prohibition is lawfully, morally, and logically wrong.
    "Prohibition...goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded."

  14. Tell your mom in the 1910 there was a Revolution in Mexico which led refugees to America. During the time in some states during the 17th century was mandatory for farmers to grow marijuana, it produces more than just medicine, but industrial goods. We can make paper, ropes, and all kinds of things from the hemp it produces. With the revolution and Mexicans fleeing into America, they exposed the Recreational use of Cannabis, the smoking part. Propoganda and government associated marijuana with the mexicans who they also would blame for violent crimes and rape and all kinds of haneous things. Then after they passed the marijuana tax act in 1937 which criminilazed posession of the plant, then afterwards in 1944 came out the La Guardia report which was the first scientific tests of the plant, it revealed marijuana was less dangerous then previously assumed and did not increase violence, insanity, or sex crimes.

    all facts, just google it and you'll find sources.
