    Is taking cannabis just as bad as watching porn ?

    I wouldn't say as bad, but very bad, just in different ways, some stuff overlaps though.
  3. Most people I know on cannabis are lazy losers. But I know a guy that smokes it and he is a Math PHD. He gets high and works out Math problems. I guess it is a question of character. I have never heard of porn being a positive in someones life though.

    Just do not overdo yourself. Smoking everyday may signify a problem and/or dependency. As bad as watching porn? Not even fucking close.

    As bad as watching porn? Probably nothing is as bad as watching porn. Porn addiction is equal to heroin addiction.

    But, don't smoke cannabis, don't smoke at all. Smoking is not good for your health.

    Cannabis slows down your reflexes, thought processes, increases anxiety (I've met people who cannot function or interact with others if they do not ingest marijuana), and kills motivation, and wastes money, because yes it is addictive.

    In terms of CBD, that's snake oil.
  7. CBD oil gets pushed a lot on here I think. Makes me suspicious that people are spamming the site. I think it is a bad idea for people to start on it, just another substance to get dependent on.

    Highly sure it does nothing.

    Every time I see a substance pushed as a multitool miracle pill, I get suspicious.

    I am interested in the sleep applications of it, but besides that, it's modern-day snake oil.
  9. I have heard of cancer patients getting some relief using it. But using it to relieve anxiety or whatever is a bad idea to me.

  10. Most drugs (that I know of) affect the brain in a negative way. Your going to be much better off staying sober from drugs in the long run. I haven’t found research on milder drugs such as psychedelics and caffeine. But it would be interesting to found out what they do to the human brain.

  11. Different societies have allowed or prohibited the social use of different drugs. The use of alcohol, (can cause fatal liver damage and other problems) nicotine (can cause lung cancer and other problems) caffeine(relatively harmless in moderation but can cause severe problems taken in excess) is permitted in most Western countries.

    List of drugs
    The worst ten drugs according to research published in The Lancet.

    1. Heroin
    2. Cocaine
    3. Barbiturates
    4. Street Methadone
    5. Alcohol
    6. Ketamine, hallucinogenic
    7. Benzodiazepines, a range of sedatives.
    8. Amphetamines, stimulants
    9. Tobacco
    10. Buprenorphine
    Less harmful than the top ten

    1. Cannabis, includes marijuana.
    2. Solvents, glue, hair spray, paints and many other legal substances that can be abused
    3. 4-MTA, has similar effects to ecstasy.
    4. LSD
    5. Methylphenidate, another stimulant sometimes called, ‘ritalin’
    6. Anabolic steroids
    7. Ecstasy
    8. Alkyl nitrates - group of drugs commonly referred to as poppers.
    9. Khat – another stimulant like amphetamine
  12. No, it's not nearly as bad as porn. Still, it can cause you a lot of problems if you abuse it. I think if a person does it only occasionally then it really isn't a big issue. The real problem is when you start doing it daily.
  13. Here’s a brain scan to show just how bad porn is for the brain. Yes, porn is a destructive drug that doesn’t kill you.

    I think drugs are bad, but I believe that there is nothing wrong with marijuana. Yes, it is harmful, but not more so than tobacco or alcohol. Yes, it can be addictive, but only psychological. There is no physiological dependence on marijuana. That is, withdrawal due to the abandonment of cannabis does not happen. If you see an aggressive, inadequate person on the street, he or she is definitely not under the influence of marijuana. Such behavior is more typical of alcohol, cocaine, or others. Typical weedsmokers are smiling talkative people.

  16. Smoked pot from ages 13 to 17, daily from 16 on until I dropped out of school and ended up in a psychiatric hospital. I was unlucky, most of the guys I was smoking with just ended up losers without any personal ambition. I’m sure you’ll be fine.

    I believe a lot of stoners have some good intentions in smoking weed: being somewhat more relaxed and chill, being able to simply talk with your homies and enjoy dumb shit.

    that being said, ive found that the reality is that it kills your ambition in very subtle ways; it kills your willpower and desire to improve, which is EXACTLY the stuff you need to quit something worse (like PMO).

    as someone who has smoked a lot of weed and also has a lot of stoner friends, i feel like it's a very subtle trap for those that want to enjoy more intimate experiences. It's such a shame that weed becomes the "filler" that brings us together to a shared plateau, rather than having each person striving to become better together. it's like in my mind somewhere, i think "if we're all losers together, we'll be okay." It's really sad, and I still feel like the spirit of being a stoner is so so close to being true and good. The difference between the true and the false can be very, very slight.

    i spoke to one of my friend and he has been smoking weed ever since he was 15 years old. he said he hasnt changed in anyway or encounter any health issue. He said you got more chance of dying of liver problem if you are a alcohlic?? so what is bad? smoking cannabis i do think you get pranoid easily...

    so with all those holes in the brain on pornograpy what is the long term affect?

    What I read
    No progress or character development, life experience being wasted.
    Excusing himself on the harms of other drugs without even knowing how pot fucks up your liver too.
    No severe health issue doesn't equal no underlying health issues.
