In brief: 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.

In brief: Not good

New data on marijuana shows that it may aggravate psychosis (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder).
Do not be lulled into thinking that marijuana is harmless.

In brief: All wrong answers...

Without a long diatribe, i would simply like to reference the cnn documentary, named "weed.
", co authored by dr. Sanjay gupta M.D.. This production finally puts to rest marijuana as a medicinal substance, and shows how far behind the United States is in relation to marijuana research with regards other countries. Please review this viideo, and it will document how pathetic the us dea is.

There are other active compounds in Marijuana that are beneficial to pain and other medical conditions. The use of Marijuana before 18 years of age can have detrimental side effects however, recent reports of it being used in status epilepticus has been successful where other anti-epileptic drugs have been unsuccessful ( Dr. Sanjay Gupta-neurologist).

In brief: Many answers

The link to psychosis is low; most who will develop severe mental illness would have developed it anyway; it may surface sooner. Young people can get thrown off track in life's course.
If smoked often bronchitis increases. When combined with alcohol the effect increases accidents. There is no specific cannibas associated disease. Occ. Use in adults is unlikely, for most, to have a neg. Impact.

In brief: THC

Marijuana is not a good substance to use.
In my opinion it really damages the brain. A recent study in england showed that iq decreases with thc use over a long period of time. If affects the brain, cardiac system and the liver. It really should not be used.
