That it's the same effect or that it only takes a minor miscalculation to embed your teeth into the steering wheel? For the first I have no proof that it's exactly the same as a shot of rum, but impaired judgement is impaired judgement, it doesn't have to be anything else. You could sound fine, walk fine, feel fine, but still be affected.
How can you not be affected anyway but be affected by something at the same time?


Your judgement is affected, in your mind. It doesn't have to show obvious physical effects.
But weed dose. Have you ever even smoked it it?


I'm not a criminal, so no. I don't see how being a criminal would make you more entitled to make the laws. Besides, whatever dosage you get from arbitrary fat burning would not be the same as smoking it.
look chick you need to go do some studying up thats not how it works. i smoked it a lot back when i was in high school and before.

Smoking it alot doesn't make you know how it works, obviously you don't know the answer or else you would have stated it. My research has found that THC does cross the blood brain barrier.

Alcohol, although dangerous, leaves the system in approximately 7 hours. Marijuana can have effects days afterwards, even weeks for heavy users. Marijuana stores in body fat and may release at any time relatively, making it unpredictable. With alcohol you know that you just drank and that you should not drive, with marijuana you should not drive for at least 2 days lest you risk getting high randomly while driving.
Lol, wtf, this is complete bullshit and has been proven wrong. THC only says in your system for a certain amount of time. The metabolites, which show up on drug tests, and which have NO effect on the functioning of the brain, can stay in your body for up to a month or two for heavy users, or a couple of days for light users.

Ha, if I could smoke weed, I would. But I had to quit in order to stay clean for drug tests. D: Anyway, weed is much better than you for alcohol anyway.

How many scientific studies have been done on it anyway? At least some of my concern is that it affects the brain in ways that we don't understand yet. This is the same with other drugs such as anti-depressants, but those require a prescription. What do you think about the pill form instead of smoking it?


To be honest, I don't know. Scientist have been researching on it for some time now or else it wouldn't have been introduced for medical purposes. I'm pretty sure they know how it influences the nerves, give the feeling of the "munchies", and so other things. It's why we have information about it with THC. Though if scientists believed that it was alright enough for it be used for medical purposes, then would it be so bad? Dually noted that yes some other drugs (medicine) are out there and we don't know exactly how they are influenced. However those are manufactured. Marijuana is a plant that just happens to get you high when you light it up and breathe it in (I'm sorry that came from comedian, but it's true) Then of course scientist have been amplifying marijuana's natural effects which is what makes it a big concern.

I've seen people that smoke it, and they're just high for a few hours or for the rest of the day after they take a hit (depends on the amount). They aren't delusional and they aren't crazy. They know what is happening, and what is going on (No matter how much they smoke it). Just for whatever reason, they feel in a better mood. I can't really say how much better, but better. There has been one instance this one girl smoked it nearly all day, and she was high for two days (the last day her mainly being very sleepy and tired). So there is concern of how marijuana does influence people, but it would have to be something monitored and also taken responsibility if the drug were to ever be legalized (alcohol has a similar fashion that its ultimately up to the drinker for their decisions).

No. I don't know anything about the pill. As far as I know is simply by smoking it or through "special brownies".

Maybe, but I still prefer to drink.

Yeah I linked my source which you so conveniently cut out. Just because you don't know you're a little high doesn't mean that you're not high. Are you aware of the trillions of synapses occurring in your brain every second? No, you're not. Just because you're living breathing biology doesn't mean you know anything about biology.

This is what they teach in university biology. Do you have a link to these studies?

I heard that the medical benefits were only tested using the pill form.
My thought is, I don't really care how dangerous it is, as long as its not like... gonna kill you instantly or ******** you up for life. I really don't think it's bad enough to warrant being illegal. It's probably not healthy, no, but that's a decision for the individual to make, not the governement.

"While drug residue can be found in body fat for days or weeks, there is no evidence that they cause flashbacks or cravings."

""In all my reading and attendance at conferences on chemical dependence, I have never heard any evidence for a mechanism for flashbacks," said Cermak, who wrote "Marijuana: What's a Parent to Believe?" in 2003. He said a likely explanation for what some people experience as a flashback is "because of the confluence of many associative clues" -- much like deja vu."

"Cermak said the idea that this activity occurs in fat reflects "a general lack of knowledge about the physiology of getting high.""

"The concentration of drugs in sweat varies very much from drug to drug," he said. "There's very little THC in sweat. If a drug is water soluble, you'll find it in higher concentrations in sweat. But not years later. That's ridiculous. Very amusing."

Your judgement is affected, in your mind. It doesn't have to show obvious physical effects.


Until you understand how the body works, namely the blood-brain barrier and how nitrients are stoeed and released in fat cells, don't open your retarded mouth. Roght now there are kids in basic biology reading your posts going "wow i havenevemet somebo
so ******** stupid they couldnt grasp simple chapter 1 physiology."


Infact everything youve said flies in the face of science in such a way, im tempted to say youre acting stupid


I do know about the blood brain barrier, alcohol sure gets past it, sorry if bio doesn't cover how illegal drugs react to it. How do you explain marijuana high to begin with if it never gets past the blood brain barrier?



Are you serious?

Are you, serious?

Like, seriously?


THC passes the blood brain barrier ONCE. One. ********. Time. It is stored in fat cells, yes, because it is "fat soluable" as in, it breaks down in fat, and becomes another ******** compound that does not pass the blood brain barrier.


Now, do yourself a favor. Don't talk about drugs until you have at least an elementary school grasp of human anatomy.

Though why would it just be the pill form? It makes no sense considering the population that use marijuana, it seems like the majority would be either smoking it or eating it.

In any case, searching through the learn more about marijuana, I stumbled across this. It's kinda interesting.
