    So your position is that smoking marijuana is good for you?
    In certain circumstances it can be if used properly.

    When you smoke something just like with cigarettes, combustion produces a bunch of different chemicals and inhaling it will damage your lungs, that's a fact.

    Just because you think it's good for you does not change that fact.

    I agree that smoking anything has detrimental health effects. There are other ways to consume marijuana that don't involve combustion. Edible products and vaporizing are two of them. "Smoking" marijuana is intended as a vernacular of saying "consume".

    I think the above may explain some of our more challenged posters. What seems like poor reading comprehension, or unending vitriol, might just be low IQ and psychosis from too much pot smoking.
    Ethans threads can easily be refuted even when his intention is to spew his unending vitriol.

    Ethan fails to understand there are:

    - Intelligent people who smoke pot
    - Intelligent people who don't smoke pot
    - Stupid people who smoke pot
    - Stupid people who don't smoke pot.

    Even a very stoned intelligent person can still explain evolution to a stupid person who doesn't smoke pot. Of course, the stupid person will most likely reject any explanations and deny the science and evidence that supports it.

    locally 2007 high school kids 53% thought pot was harmful,  2017 32%  however it doesn't seem to lead to more of them smoking it, which surprises me.

    What about the detrimental effects to your brain?

    Do you think there aren't any?

    I think if used moderately and responsibly, the effects are not detrimental enough to worry about.

    So, you are not an on or off type of person, you like to see the line as a little fuzzy. How fun!

    Po, your ancestors hate your guts now please, stop humiliating them.

    The electron is fuzzy cloud.  Occupied space lines are made from atoms and atoms are composed of electrons ergo all lines are fuzzy as we focus in on them with higher resolutions.

    \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/ = no such thing as a straight line.

    Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I personally use marijuana all of the time and it really helps with my peripheral nephropathy, and I'm a completely functioning, well-to-do person who uses it everyday with doctor recommendation.

    Size is relative to this or that.  If you were the size of an atom, you would be you nor any known biological.

    Viruses are small ---smallest 17 nano-meters---   but still larger than the largest  atoms.

    If you dont know what an atom is composed I can direct you to lots of info on that rather simple topic.

    I understand that these long-term consequences come if marijuana is taken before your thirties which is the age when people have their brain totally developed. It's obvious then that this drug is harmful for teenagers, or in other words for people less than 24 years old.

    Infants children and older people are all more susceptible to detrimental environmental ---human constructed or not-- substances.

    I read some years back that 3 out of every 5 people will get cancer. Its all relative i.e. all  has to be placed on scales of consideration that are relative to each other.

    What the adults can do is provide more education and technology{ improved condoms } to help younger people make best choices, for their specific set of circumstances.

    As for older people, it is now the policy for men, over 60 or so that is better not to the radiation treatment for prostate cancer because the cancer that kills you is some years away, except for those that are rapidly proliferating and even then radiation will not do much if the cancer has spread.

    It is always a question of balance of the a complex set of relationships that are differrent for each humans set of circumstances.

    The clear line of good and bad became blurred ---particle cloud or wave cloud-- by reality in early 60's via techno-color, instead of just black and white.

    Now, in 1st world countries, we have so many options.

    "point"? Dude there is many points and you cannot winnow-out even one.

    The devil is in the details, if not the micro-details. You of all identities should know that.

    Try, try try again, and if you dont succeed.........look between the cracks of  yellow cobblestone road.

    Those cracks are filled with biological life, attempting to sprout wings and fly....kinda of like termites....YIKES! 

    Please feed the bears * o * along the intellectual pathways and please do not not  allow yourself  * o * to be their food.  :--D

    You've just provided a bunch of common places and none of them has to do with what I said. I mean, the fact that children and elders are vulnerable might have sth to do with the subject but it's still a common place. Or are you trying to say that everything in excess is harmful? I can't find your point to be honest.

    By the way, as the lord of the darkness I always pay careful attention to the details, but only for my advantage.

    Weed I heard can strengthen brain connections in developed brains.  There are pros and cons to cannabis and it should be up to the individual to decide if it's right for them.

    And now we know vaping can be even more dangerous than smoking.

    You heard wrong.

    That is a different issue from this thread's topic.

    Some type of vaping can be. The use of inferior products laced with vitamin E acetate is the culprit for the majority of the recent problems. That happens when cheaper THC oil is vaped. You can also vaporize the same plant products that you would smoke. I'm not aware of any issues with that method. And like I said, edibles are an even healthier alternative.

    Aside from medicinal purposes, for the same reasons that someone would drink alcohol (which is far more destructive to brain cells).
