    Interesting, wonder if this will happen in Cali now that weed is legal. Any long term users want to chime in?

    I dont use, but the article references side effects that pale in comparison to alcohol and cigarettes.

    I hope research is geared toward emotional and psychological side effects as people generally will see mild physical side effects as a green light to use, or to be lax on punishing their children who use.

    Alcoholism spikes in states where alcohol is legal.

    There are emotional side effects in the people I know. They're very emotional and unable to restrain themselves.

    Wow. Long term excessive pot use has a side effect almost as bad as long term aspirin use.

    I use, and of course it has side effects, but what the fuck doesn't? And is it worth the "risk" of these side effects to reduce the crimes against humanitiy that outlawing it did?

    It's one of those things that some few people will get. I know a person who's son suffers from this. But I also know more people who are chronic users that experience nothing of the sort.

    The closest I would say this is like an allergy. Those who get this shouldn't smoke weed, just as someone with a peanut allergy would avoid peanuts, or someone with celiac needs to avoid gluten.

    I think getting arrested and a getting a criminal record for weed is more dangerous than any of the side effects

    Exactly. It ruins not just the user's, but all of the family's lives. It's really horrific when you look at what the war on drugs has done to us over the years.

    Like any drug, abuse will have it's side effects.

    The myth that "weed is completely harmless" needs to be addressed. It's not, but it's also not anymore dangerous than the drugs already widely available. That's for damn sure.

    Keep in mind the article said the kid abused the drug for 10 years. and he got a stomach ache.

    I think the real downside of marijuana is it can be used as an emotional crutch, and because it has no real physical damage and can be abused for such a long time you can end up realizing you have been walking through reality at a much slower pace than you should.

    I burn through about an ounce a month(3-4 bowls a day) when I partake. Sometimes I smoke daily for months, other times I dont smoke at all for months, just depends on how I feel. Ive never been hospitalized or gone to the Dr for anything related to marijuana use and Ive smoked like this for 8 years.

    In all honesty, these "side effects" sound about as serious as a person who's lactose intolerant when they drink some milk. Your body is yours and only you should have a say what goes in it. If a person who's lactose intolerant wants to drink milk, nothing should stop them from doing so except themselves.

    Pro-marijuana crowd: "It's healthy, natural, and has no negative side effects!"

    *turns out it does have at least one negative side effect and, as many of us have said, it would be nice to make it legal so we can know what we're getting into after it becomes easier to research marijuana's effects*

    Pro-marijuana crowd: "BUT IT'S NOT AS BAD AS ALCOHOL! OR CIGARETTES! THEY'RE WORSE! WORSE WORSE WORSE!"

    I guess the pro-marijuana crowd really isn't interested in learning what this substance actually does so long as they can keep their "it's perfectly healthy and natural!" bragging rights... Otherwise, this rush into defense mode likely wouldn't happen. Frankly, I'd just like to use it knowing what it can do to me.
