Putting aside the social, legal, commercial and political issues what is wrong with people growing a plant or two for their own personal use? Has there ever been a reputable clinical trial to measure the effects of sustained use?

read up on alcohol and cigarettes while your at it, and then compare the FACTS to weed. Facts don't lie. God you are dumb you make me want to puke.

Yes, it is a good read. I read it all. Unfortunately there is NO clinical discussion of the effects of sustained use.

Thank you. This is a good read too but not what I am looking for. I am looking for reputable clinical evidence that marijuana is harmful. So far I just can't find any. It may be safe, it may not. I am not strongly advocating marijuana use. I want an open discussion of the facts. Where is the evidence that it does harm?

Best Answer

There isn't any. That is why they opened up the "gateway drug" campaign... they couldn't prove that either.

Best Answer

It looks like your conclusion may be correct. I am still looking for reputable clinical evidence that marijuana is harmful. Only one other person responded to this question. He did not have any evidence either. My request for facts was so disturbing it made him (or her, I don't really know) want to puke. Feeling any better now yolo? Stay thirsty, hmmmm.....

Best Answer

There ya go! Just borrow facts and apply them as needed.
Brilliant people here at EP : )

Best Answer

As my good friend yolo observed, and I agree, facts don't lie. It's just a pity he doesn't have any.

Hi there again imnotsureicandothis. How things have changed in the last two years or so. It became fully legal to possess and use marijuana in Colorado in March 2014 so long as you are at least 18, not in a public place and not in charge of a motor vehicle. This is the first acceptance by legislators that marijuana use may not bring about the collapse of civilization. I wonder how they discovered that. Perhaps (heaven forbid) one of them actually TRIED IT! Or maybe they decided to look at the facts. Of course this does not prove that it does no harm. Maybe it does do harm. But like I said in my original post where is the evidence? Differing state and federal law is not very helpful but once it starts, change can spread quickly. I remember when the only place in the US you could get a divorce was Nevada. What started in Reno is now commonplace across most of the free world.

Is the question about the growing of the plant?

Best Answer

Hi syvreta. Growing a single plant constitutes possession and may get you locked up in Australia where I live or in the US. I am not advocating that anyone break the law, I am however advocating that people learn to think for themselves because we are lucky enough to live in a part of the world where law makers are appointed by popular ballot. Use OR POSSESSION of marijuana is against the law in these countries because of the PRESUMPTION that it is harmful. In November 2012 I asked the question on EP whether there is ANY EVIDENCE from a REPUTABLE CLINICAL SOURCE to support this presumption which is enshrined in law. As you can see for yourself, in nearly two and a half years there has NOT BEEN ONE reputable source such as a medical or scientific research journal quoted in support of this prohibition while drugs which are PROVEN TO BE injurious to health such as alcohol and tobacco remain legal and available with particular restrictions on their use where they may have a negative impact on kids or others who have chosen not to partake. For example you need to be aged at least 18 yrs to buy them in Australia. It is not legal to drive or operate heavy machinery under the influence of alcohol and it is not legal to smoke tobacco in any public place where other people may be exposed to your smoke. There is widespread support for these laws concerning alcohol and tobacco. Most people agree that they are reasonable and do not violate the liberty of those who choose to follow the legal guidelines. With regard to the laws against the use and/or possession of marijuana I continue to ask the question 'What is the clinical evidence that marijuana is harmful'? If the prohibition of marijuana is not based on sound medical evidence THEN WHAT IS IT BASED ON?
