  1. I started using weed once every couple weeks when it legalized in my state. I really loved the state it put me in and the perspective it gave me. It felt great almost every time. So I started using it more frequently until I was up to maybe 2-3 times per week. Then, out of the blue, I had the bad trip of a lifetime that put me so deep in a hole that I felt like I was never going to get out and had thoughts that I might have to kill myself to get out. I was having a vision of myself as a homeless person on the street with a completely fried brain, and my wife and daughter having left me. It was terrifying. It’s been 6 months since that incident. Part of me would like to believe it was just anomaly, but I’m scared to put it to the test…

  2. I think the biggest issue with any drug use over long periods of use the High you get from the drug is better than anything without having the drug. So hobbies and interests you did have fall away and couch TV snacks is your only choice you want to do

  3. What if the marijuana user has over eight hours of sleep, two hours plus of exercises, and uses restrictions to limit intake haha 😂. Not to mention productive levels throughout day!

  4. I'm an A student in my Anatomy and Phisiology class I smoke before school and after while I'm studying and when I take my test it really helps with my anxiety and keeps me motivated and relaxed and unbothered by others 😁

  5. Longterm users are more funerable to get psychotic moodswings after smoking weed…. it is not proven this affects the person when the person doesnt consume cannabis

  6. As a cannabis user myself, with history of abusiing it on young age i can admit that longterm high frequent smoking indeed pave a path toward emotional discontrol… luckely if you stop smoke for a while it all comes back😆

  7. Weed and Alcohol are both terrible for you. Weed tears up you respiratory and leads to mental health issues. Alcohol is the worst! Most violent crimes in the world involved alcohol use

  8. PEOPLE LOOK IT UP THIS PILL DOESNT WORK VERRY WHAT IT SAYS IF YOU LOOK IT UP GOOGLE IT COMPAREING TO ITS SIDE EFFECTS CAN BE WORSEN WHEN SOMEONE SMOKEING MARIJUANA THAT REALLY MAKES YOU SLEEPY , LITTLE BIT BREATHING ISSUES HAS AND EVEN WITHOU IT CALLED ALLERGIC BUT ANYWAYS ITS DANGEROUS WHEN YOU MIXED WITH MARIJUANA THAT PROPLE DONT REALIZED IT ! CITIRZINE ! SAMEWAY DOESNT MEAN IT WILL IT WILL MAKE POEPLE EVEN KIDS WORSE ! WEED AND LARATDINE DOESNT MIX WELL ITS A WARNING SIGNS ON PEOPLE !

  9. It’s has some uses in medicines and cultures. It smoking and inhaling fumes and toxins is bad for you cannabis or whatever especially with the toxins from chemicals and plant fertiliser used to grow which a lot of is never flushed out

  10. most people who smoke weed died it cause they have anxiety that doesn't mean that the weed made them have anxiety (but i do know a couple of my friends when they smoke sativa they'll get anxiety)

  11. Have used cannabis since 1967… Pot is like anything else, food, alcohol, other medications. Everything in moderation. I'm 67 yrs. old. I still use cannabis for sleep every night. If I don't, I'm wide awake by 2;00 am for the rest of the night. So yeah, Cannabis helps my sleep so much! I'm active, healthy and an avid Equestrian. My mind is sharp, and I'm still doing 20 to 50 mile rides throughout the summer season. I could not achieve that feat if it were not for cannabis because my joints.. { no pun intended, LoL! ….are shot. knees, shoulders, hands, from over 60 yrs in the saddle. My use of flower, THC drops, and edibles help my pain and keeps me in the saddle, I hope for years to come. All used in moderation. When I do run out, I have no withdrawal symptoms, except wishing I wasn't on my last dropper full of Cannabis oil. Everything in moderation. It seems to me, those people who are having issues with cannabis are those who stay stoned all day. That is a waste and certainly unnecessary. Embrace the herb, but don't abuse it.

  12. I have two United States utility patents, can speak several languages, read classics, walk 10-12 miles a day, program computers, play several instruments, and and and… uh, where was I? Oh yes: time for a skinny j.

  13. Two years from now they gonna come out saying weed cures cancer, these people have no facts whatsoever, they never experienced weed addiction, they are full of bs, just trying to scare the general public after nearly 1.5 million Americans consume marijuana daily

  14. I do believe that abusing these sacred plants could lead to trouble… but that trouble could lead to good places as wel so is that bad ? I Believe that these plants as many others are teachers. It can reveal unconscious stuff to you but that can induce some anxiety in a person… what I question is how did these subjects in that study used it? Did they smoked it of vaped it without tabbaco? Maybe the los of gray material is due to toxins from burning it. I don’t think smoking it is the best way to use cannabis Anyways.

  15. I think it’s great to reveal affects of abuse, and yes smoking 11x per wee is abuse- you’re getting everyday multiple times per day on certain days. What about recreational use? People who decide to use cannabis after work or weekends so like 3-5x per week? Risks? Benefits? Seems like we are always given these worse case scenario narratives… are we to infer that light to moderate use is essentially harmless?

  16. im 32 and iv smoked weed since I was 7 it was one of the causes of my mental illness but its also the cure im honestly not m self with out it

  17. Heavy daily user here, weed definitely affects mood in a negative way, for example, anyone who can’t get their next pickup after they run out from their plug knows exactly what I’m talking about lol Suddenly everyone suffers an anxiety attack or heavy irritability
