What's So Bad About Marijuana? It's Non-Addictive and You Can't Overdose, and Doctors Even Prescribe It!

Ian Elder:

I have never smoked pot and I don't plan to but what's bad about it,its not that addictive and you can't over dose on it,doctors even prescribe it,for stress or help glaucoma .I'm just wondering if you have looked at the flip side to your argument.I have to agree with you about alcohol but I'm still on the fence about pot,tbh pot is prob safer than drinking Cindybin:
What do you mean, "What's bad about it?" It's a mind-altering drug!! I'm just saying we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs like pot and alcohol to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", celebrate, socialize, etc. This is good morals and just plain common sense!

And then you bring up MEDICAL MARIJUANA?? AARGGHHHH! Now you have REALLY done it. Now I have to add your comments to my huge folder filled with all the other THOUSANDS of comments and emails from "medical" users, supporters and growers who just don't get it. I have explained over and over a billion times for the past 15 years online that I am NOT AGAINST MEDICAL MARIJUANA! That is a TOTALLY different issue! Nobody is against MEDICINE. Medicine is something that people take to treat an illness or condition they don't want to have in the first place. I am a nice person and of course would not want anybody to suffer! If something like marijuana—or ANYTHING—truly helps a person with a true medical condition, then of COURSE that would be a good thing! I would use it myself if I had to, if it were legal for that and it worked. I have even been trying for YEARS to write an article on the benefits of medical marijuana! But I have yet to find a single decent person to interview to use as an example in my article! All the casual users rave about the medical benefits in order to justify getting high (while they cuss me out, threaten me with death and bodily harm, attack my religion, my looks, my sex life, make mean videos and websites about me, reveal my personal information, make fun of me for collecting dolls, tell me to kill myself, tell me they hope I get cancer, etc.) And even the "medical" users I've talked to and seen online have been horrible just like the recreational users. Even the "nice" ones don't get it and honestly can't see why it is wrong to use mind-altering drugs recreationally. How can I support them when they are like THAT?? Now all I want to do is write articles and make videos using all the THOUSANDS of comments and emails I have collected from you guys, to show what you are like! The world needs to know!!

I always thought MEDICAL users and supporters and growers would be NICE, and surely agree that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally. What parent would ever raise their kids to grow up and get high on POT? At any age? And I say the same things about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law! You guys always think that just because I say we shouldn't smoke pot, that I'm all "hung up on pot" and think that it's all dangerous and deadly and "ruins your life." I never say that! All I'm saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally, that this is good morals and just plain common sense! And I am NOT against medical marijuana or ANYTHING that truly helps someone with a true medical condition! But as I said, I have yet to find any kind of true, decent medical marijuana user! It is just crazy!!! And I have explained over and over about how the main reasons I have been forced to keep speaking up against pot is because of pot smokers and others always accusing me of thinking that it is dangerous and addictive and kills people! NOBODY THINKS THAT! Again, doesn't it even OCCUR to you guys that we are all against pot because it's a mind-altering drug??? And again, NOBODY IS AGAINST MEDICINE! That is a totally different issue! But I have yet to find one single TRUE medical user out there, they are all just horrible, they cuss me out, threaten me, etc. Even the "nice" ones don't get it and can't see why it's wrong to use drugs recreationally!

And people always tell me they use it for things like anxiety or depression. I have tried to feel sympathetic and tell them that if marijuana is helping them, then that is good. But as I said, I talk with them further and find out they think nothing is wrong with using it just for "fun". They'll ask, "What do you have against fun?" As if I am "against fun". Oh brother. This shows you how they think! And I have said many times that getting high on POT is not the answer to treat depression or anxiety.

Anyway, comments like yours are the entire reason I realize we all need to speak up against pot even MORE, because I see that you just don't get it. You honestly think that if only I realized that pot is safe and non addictive and that it can be used for "medical" reasons, I'd realize it's okay to light up a joint, smoke it and get high!! GEE WHIZ!!!
