Drinking coffee and being on crack are two different things.

How? You can get addicted to both of them. They can both make you feel happy or more alert. They both cause psychological changes and blood pressure changes . They both give you withdrawal symptoms if you have an addiction to them and just randomly stop taking them.

Are you being literal again or you just live to win an argument?

Are you just spouting your clear liberal bias or just trying to win an argument with opinions?

Says the guy with twice my posts and 5x my comments with just 4 months of seniority over me. I think we all know who sleeps at their computer...

I'm stubborn..ok? Gosh.

I'd like to drop in a thought..our perspective viewpoint of certain drugs because of the times we live in. Do we view certain drugs bad because they have been perceived as "bad" (i.e. marijuana). I use Cocaine or heroin as examples..both of which were, at one point, used for medicinal purposes and didn't have the stigma they have today.

So if used the proper way I don't see any harm with it

AHA. Hypocrisy netted!

Anyway, I had to go and delete a few posts because they were both off-topic and applying the Ad Hominem fallacy. We don't like any of that here.

Unless it's marijuana, which has been proven to be beneficial to people's health.

temporary for people with health problems, maybe.
it is not beneficial for healthy people.
when used for a longer time on a high amount during your teenage years, it will make your short term memory worse. and marijuana use in combination with psychological problems such as a trauma or social disorders. has a higher chance for causing schizophrenia..

Some people who smoke pot turn into burnouts. It's not so much the drug that does this as much as the person's life style.

I've seen plenty of girls dye their hair black, wear baggy clothing, and change their style just because they were introduced to that style by friends or boyfriends.

People who do the whole, "all I want to do is smoke weed" thing are just being immature. It's easy to smoke pot and not be a moron about it.

I think people who smoke are plain stupid. They put pictures of themselves up on social media thinking it makes them look cool. It doesn't. It makes you look stupid and trashy.
