Addiction= disease: Marijuana is not bad. Using marijuana may be harmful. Disease is not a moral problem. Neither the addict or the drug is bad. ...Read more

What can marijuana do to your body if a child?

Nothing good: Smoking mj, tobacco, or any other harmful substance in the house, car, or elsewhere near a child means that child is a passive smoker, which is never good for his/her lungs.Because of smaller body surface area, children can get "stoned" by much lower amts. Of mj than adults. Being in an altered state impairs development & increases risk for accidents. Mj passes thru breast milk, also. ...Read more

Please reconsider: Oh my gosh, your question makes me so sad for your unborn child. It sounds like you plan to continue using and stop prior to detection. Please, please think this over. You may feel remorseful about this if your precious baby girl is born with serious health problems due to cannabis abuse. I encourage you to talk candidly with your obstetrician about your use so that you can come off the thc now. ...Read more

Somewhat to very: Marijuana is no longer the mellow 70s drug that it is frequently referenced as. Growers have bred it to be many times as potent and sellers even lace it with other chemicals (bleach, formaldehyde, cocaine) to enhance the experience. ...Read more

What's the significance of marijuana?

Using it, right?: Mj has been linked to a 3-fold increase in schizophrenia. It's use has been linked to decreased brain function, & linked to shrinkage of the thalamus, an important brain structure that controls or modulates neural activity. All in all, a wolf in sheep's clothing. In many cases it is definitely a gateway drug introducing acceptance to other drug experimentation & possibly addictions. It's illegal. ...Read more

What are your thoughts on medicinal marijuana?

Need a standard : Prop 215 legalized mmj in ca. The problem with it is it unscientifically listed numerous diseases & symptoms a dr can recommended it for. Allowing drs to prescribe it is fine. But approving it for a myriad of diseases with no scientific basis created a huge problem. Now there are more dispensaries than 7-11s. An 18 year old can get mmj for insomnia in lieu of sleep hygiene education from his gp! ...Read more

Marijuana and health: I would take the morality out of the question or the 'good' versus 'bad' with marijuana use. Like any substance the over use of this product can lead to intoxication, addiction, and other health or mental health concerns. But, the direct effect of cannabis on the human tissue is not unhealthy in and of itself. Cannabis can be a good appetite stimulant, an anti-inflammatory, and anxiolytic. ...Read more
