"I understand that pot can make you slow in thinking in the long run but those effects are for people who use them everyday and every hour for years and years, and it is not a permanent effect." Are you even listening to yourself? idk, maybe I'm just an idiot but I'm pretty sure you just contradicted yourself, but what do I know..
Personally, I really don't think you care what people on here have to say on here because you have already made up you mind (regardless of it being right or wrong), and you just simply want to be heard and hope that everyone will jump on the band wagon
I don't hate marijuana, but I certainly don't think it should be legalized, that just seems like a very "ignorant" decision ;)
if you read what I quoted (what YOU typed) that actualy is a contraditiction, and I didn't not argue my statement becuase "I really don't think you care what people on here have to say on here because you have already made up your mind (regardless of it being right or wrong), and you just simply want to be heard and hope that everyone will jump on the band wagon " becuase you have already ruled out a lot of legiment answers by declaring them as 'ignorant'.
Do you see what I'm getting at?
but, if you really do want an answer here it goes,
this may sound "ignorant", but marijuana does makes you stupid, and if you smoke it for the rest of your life you WILL permanetly be stupid.
For example> say it becomes the new trend, say it becomes like the new Myspace or Starbucks, you know just completely trendy, and everyone is doing it like "omg, I just like absolutly have to smoke a bleezy like right now! :O" there would be so many dumbass's around not doing sh*t (and can you imagine the chaos those people would be causing by the things that they would be doing? like maybe they forgot to look both ways before crossing the street and got hit by a car and the person in the car would be the one who gets charged for it because the pedestrian always has the right away, even though there was absolutly no way for the car person to stop once they're going that fast :/). sure I guess the peace and all that hippy love crap would increase but your worth as a human being would have decreased just as much, not to mention the worth of this country, being a world leader and all, I would not want to put my country's reputation at stake by passing some silly law.
However, I think it's fine if you really need it for medicinal use (you're not doin sh*t anyways), if you are still in high school or college, or if you are hella old and have nothing else to look foward to, but I don't think we should be encouraging it as a country.
That's my view atleast.
but hey, you never know maybe if it was legalized under specific rules, it could get the economy moving again, and stop crime! but you never know it could very well do the opposite too :/
