That middle one should not have been linked on second thought, but I will add:
Anyone who has put even a fraction of time into researching the substance on their own, instead of reading purely anti-drug statements, can tell you that the majority of the information in those links is slander.
Koraak, I believe I read you can "overdose" on marijuana. I say it with quotes because you're actually dying from carbon monoxide poisoning at that time. I believe it was something along the lines of 900 consecutive joints to cause an "overdose."
I believe the ratio is 1:40000 for the amount of thc to get you high to the amount of thc that will kill you.
alcohol is 1:5 - 1:10 depending on tolerance
It's the circular arguments that make me lose my mind, nothing personal.
What you're inferring here is if we legalize heroine tomorrow everyone's going to use heroine. How many people here would use heroine if it became legal?If I am to change my opinion on the matter though, I will need to see some proof that it will not become a social problem.
What's Rezoaken? Google didn't help me w that word.

I'm still deciding how i feel on marajuana legalization, but it is good to see people are voicing their individual opinions.
I would greatly appreciate if anyone on this forum would write a brief piece about your opinion. It doesn't have to be long (it can be as short as 40 words) or written formally. I will put the article on my online blog and my favorite article for the week will win $50 cash (no BS just cash straight to your doorstep). If you are interested, email your writing to yourarticleyouropinion at gmail <---- (had to write it out cuz it wudnt let me post link) and enter the subject as the name or username you want the article to be given credit to. Thanks so much.
Pretty sure it's been linked in this thread before, but this video does a pretty good job of explaining the dangers of marijuana and debunk the myths about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jO_ncXj7RE
It's pretty long but anyone that's interested in the subject would benefit.

Having studied up a bit more and watching that movie I have to admit.. I see the benefit of legalizing it and that it is not as horrible as it is made up to be.
I still don't believe it to be this "nothing will/can happen" drug, having seen people experience the warned effects.
So if I could I would indeed change my poll choice to "yes".
