Is there any other way to wake up? Would you find it more acceptable for someone to wake up and be Emo about life?
Confidence and energy will get you further than apathy and self-pity.
Can't really disagree with the facts. It is what it is. I like weed, but i will not deny that medical marijuana is a sham (especially smoking it). It does have some potentially useful medicinal qualities to it, but just ingesting or smoking the entire plant is not an effective means of treatment because of the psychoactive properties. Then again, people still get prescribed powerful narcotics for medicinal purposes. It would be awesome if medical science could pinpoint the useful cannabinoids and produce pills containing extracts of these canabinioids.
Sigh, you know I can't really argue when you are using logic.
I agree that it would be excellent if they could find the appropriate method to utilize marijuana, that is, a method that the medical community would agree on. Who knows, maybe it'll be the new penicillin one day /shrug

No, that's not even remotely close
to what I was saying. My point was/is; the Medical use of Marijuana is extremely controversial for a reason.
I'm not going to lie and say I know the debate inside and out, I don't
, I admit it; but what I do know is that ... cocaine based products for example, come from a substance commonly believed to be "Pure Evil" , yet they're used every day all over the world for many fields of medicine.
prove that Cocaine is good.
You and others cannot
prove the same for Marijuana.
all of the substances you named (Alcohol, Cocaine, and Nicotine), have side-effects with a higher severity profile than marijuana. Enough to cause death in patients.
I'd be very surprised if you could find a single death
caused by the controlled application of Alcohol, Cocaine or Nicotine based products in the field of medicine.
I'm not a doctor, but I associate closely with many and what you're describing just doesn't happen, at least not outside of incredibly strenuous circumstances.
Or maybe I thought too highly of you in the gender debate
Flattery will get you everywhere <3
But no, I don't call people "Some dumb pothead" unless they earn it. You seem to speak with a strong voice with obvious thought put into your words, even if you disagree with me, why would I talk down to you? that would be nonsense.
People who respond with :
"DUHHH YOU B STUPID, HEMP FTW MOTHA ****A LOLOLL"
"Dude, like, weed rules, its all good, no side effects or nuthin"
"I'm an intelligent person and I believe pot is harmless and increases my quality of life"
... are the ones I mock.

...I think this person is HIGHLY misinformed on the topic of marijuana
...likely comes from a background which has bought into the propaganda and literature released to legitimize the illegality of a rather benign drug
