    It's called statistical evidence. You don't have to put your hand in the fire to find out you'll get burned when you can visit a burn ward. You don't have to engage in drugs, alcohol, or premarital sex to find out what can happen when there are so many examples already.

    In my experience when I look into the actual numbers and research done on all of the above I have found the dangers publicized to be understated rather then stretched.

    3. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol - the Active ingrediant in Pot that makes you stoned) can kill you in large doses, luckily the dose is extreamly high. But then again, absolutly anything in a large enough dose, including water, can kill you. Thats why Gluttony is one of the 7 deadly sins.



    Even if used responsably, drink it long enough and it will eventually kill you by slowly eating away at you liver.


    Har har.
    Ok im really glad you said that becuase i wasnt sure if we could discuss our drug usage here.

    But im a stoner as well, and yea i drive high half the time.
    And all my freinds tell me im a safer driver when im high actually lol.
    Ive never came anywhere near crashing my car, or anything careless like that. Not even after smoking chronic.

    And to be honest, you can get addicted to ANYTHING.
    Food for instance.

    And im glad you said the whole gluttony thing.

    Alot of things will kill you if you take them long enough.
    Prescriptions, foods, etc.

    Like hispanics are said to be more at risk for cancer becuase of the diet they enjoy with foods such as tortillas, frijoles, and all kinds of junk they indulge in.

    Effects of cannabis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    At this link it discusses how cannabis does affect your driving, it points out all the negative setbacks, but overall concludes that most accidents that people tested positive for cannabis, were under the influence of alcohol.
    So cannabis alone doesnt amount anywhere close to the number of crashes caused by alcohol.

    (You can check the links on the page to see for the official studies.)
    Yay-yea?
