    My response wasn't a counter-argument. I'm not wasting my time arguing with you or anyone else who is too lazy to look up information that is readily available for you.

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    I have never, EVER said that marijuana doesn't have negative effects on anyone ever. As for the rest of what you said /yawn.

    Zeph posted about how smoking dope made his anxiety x 100000 and made him feel stupid and inadequate, so that's not the solution.

    Also Onder FYI the military made Overwatch and King Richard both keenly aware that the AMERICA FUCK YEAH jingoist myth is a humongous lie, so I wouldn't be too quick to accuse them of being brainwashed patriots.

    I just did. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe you are a paragon of self control, drive, and focus. Everything about the persona you present screams the opposite.

    I smoke pot ocassionally. Sometimes I enjoy it or I do not. I smoked a j sometime last weak and expirienced just about every feeling and emotion possible after about an hour of a good high. It really sucked. I was thrilled when I came down.

    It can make me pretty emotional too, which is why it's nice to be around other people who are high. It can get awkward otherwise.

    I like smoking pot occasionally, but I can't stand doing it on a regular basis. It definitely puts a damper on intellectual perception. I used to think that it gave me insight into various topics, but the "insight" that it gave me wasn't useful in the least.

    Pumping myself up for tomorrow's concert in Chicago. I'll be seeing the mighty Dead Can Dance in beautiful Millennium Park.

    Pot always gives me a sorta David Lynch vibe.

    I generally feel disturbed, confused, and horrified when I watch a Lynch movie. That is not something I'd like to experience without there being a movie to help me.

    So it's becoming evident that depression and anxiety have been the effect, not the cause, of my concentration and memory issues. I still think that there's a trend of decline in my attention span in direct proportion to my pot usage over the past 6 months (perhaps the stuff really did have that effect on me, too bad), and my new theory is that it's some form of severe ADD. I've stopped the antidepressants and will be seeing the psychiatrist tomorrow to restrategize. There is medicine for ADD, and perhaps that will help, since I don't have problems with motivation, only frustration in my utter inability to focus and think deeply and complexly in the past few weeks. It's not something I'll just snap out of, and I need to retrain my brain to synch back with reality.

    Then again, this could all be wishful thinking to fool myself into thinking there's a clear solution to this issue. I just want my mind back and to be able to learn things the way I used to.

    Dead Can Dance! Super jealous. Have fun.

    I'm kinda in denial but regular herb usage has made me SO STUPID and forgetting all sorts of things I'd normally know.

    ^ these are things I see and hear all the time regarding use. Avid supporters always seem to dust it to the side however. Studies fly both ways, and most of them are done with a certain agenda in mind, and in much to small of a scale for me to take them seriously over what I have witnessed.

    That said, I do believe it should be legal...I just feel a lot of its supporters lose credibility with some of the claims they tote around.
