Cannabis drives me into a full blown psychosis. If this herb heals then why does it make me schizo?

Sometimes i find it so funny that we live in a
society where cannabis is illegal yet alcohol is
perfectly legal. cannabis is the safest drug out
there. you cant overdose on cannabis, in is not
physically addictive. it doesn't change your
personality to any extent like alcohol does. it
relaxes you and lowers aggression. yes there are
some studies correlating cannabis use to mental
problems but they have been shown to not be valid
from a scientific point of view.even just look at
Holland. cannabis is legal there and therefore
more widely tried by people and yet Holland
doesn't have any more mentally ill patients
compared to other countries. which leads a person
to suppose that cannabis doesn't make anyone
psychotic who wasn't going to turn psychotic
anyway. some of the most recent studies on THC
( the main active ingredient in cannabis) shows
that it has significant anticancer properties, is one
of the best anti oxidants out there, facilitates
neurogenisis ( birth of new brain cells) and
prevents neural degradation and therefor can be a
great help in preventing diseases like Alzheimers ,
Parkinsons and ms. it has also been proved to be
just as effective in treating some cases of extreme
psychosis as the leading drugs out there but with
none of the extreme side affects other drugs have.
and then we have alcohol which is legal. alcohol is
addictive, it is possible to overdose on and die, it is
widely available and even young kids find it easy
to get. it lowers inhibitions and is the cause of
many teen pregnancy's . it greatly lowers
judgment and is the cause of many car accidents,
it greatly changes someones personality and very
often makes them loud and aggressive and is
therefor the cause of many fights. in most cases of
spousal or family abuse alcohol is involved. just go
to a police holding cell on Friday night and you
will find 80% of the people arrested that day
where drunk when arrested. and it is also severely
damaging to your body. i saw a documentary the
other day about the greatly increasing number of
young Britons, people not much more than 20,
who are already suffering liver failure due to
and yet people are still so hypocritical that they
get all self righteous on here if you smoke a bit of
cannabis yet most likely enjoy a drink themselves.
truly makes me laugh sometimes. so my advice for
you is there is nothing wrong to smoke cannabis. it
is alot healthier and less socially damaging than
having a drink. my advice is to just not smokeit so
often. if your gonna insist on smoking it every day
then use it as your reward at the end of that day.
or be like me and smoke it only on weekends. i
used to smoke it all day every day for ages until i
found i didn't feel stoned of it anymore as stoned
was my idea of normal. so then i cut it down to
only smoking at night and then t o only smoking it
on the weekend. saves me alot of money that way
plus i feel so nicely stoned when i smoke that first
joint on Friday after work
p.s like i said cannabis isn't physically addictive. it
is mentally addictive but then people can become
mentally addicted to just about anything like ****,
eating, gambling, video games etc

haha Arny loves his weed.<br />
yeah Tool's the only reason I even know of Bill Hicks
