xrichx saidI guess we know who the resident pot head is around here.
I'm no square. I don't care if you smoke weed. It's certainly not any worse than meth. But over time that shit fucks up your lungs. I think we've all heard that smoking one joint does the same amount of damage to your lungs as smoking a whole pack of cigarettes. And it's a misconception that using a bong will counteract this. It's still smoke going into your lungs.
ok, this post deserves to win some kind of lack of rationality award.
First off, yes marijuana is "not any worse than meth"... however what would be just slightly more accurate would be "marijuana is not even close to as harmful as meth is". i mean jeez, gimme a break
As for "fucking up your lungs", the post was "marijuana and working out", not smoking weed and working out. weed can be ingested orally as an edible or vaporized with a heat gun so that you are not inhaling any smoke
and there ARE benefits to bong usage, since it cools down hot smoke that is going down to your lungs... yes, that's still bad for you, but there is an incremental benefit.
yes, we've all heard of the study where one joint equals a pack of cigs... and we've all also heard that that study is a load of shit, just like all the other reefer madness shit they spew out at us. and i think its fair to say that most marijuana smokers do not smoke a whole joint over the course of one session or even a day. for me, 2-3 hits out of my pipe is more than enough
as long as you're not an addict, weed is fine and is soooo UNLIKE all the other real drugs out there, i hardly even consider it a drug. For instance, the 5 pills of ecstasy i took last night put me through the fucking ringer... i dont even feel like myself today... now thats a drug you dont want to abuse
