Hello! Mylotters Family and Newbies! Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening! Miss me? Don`t worry, You don`t have to miss me but I miss being here! I was busy adjusting with my language schooling and warming up my brain Anyways, I just want to share my thougts here today because of this drug named "Marijuana or Cannabis" which I know that it`s really not good for us especially to those who have weak mind or under a stressful situation It`s sad to hear about making this legalized as it can cause a lot of bad health to many users Why do some countries allowed the use of this? What this drug can do to you? I hope everyone can share their thoughts about it Have a great day and Happy mylotting to all! Photo: medicalnewstoday.com (google)

I know a few people who need it for medical reasons. Others I know use it for recreational purposes. I don't mind what these people use it for, but I wouldn't want a cab driver driving me around New York City high. Nor would I want a cab driver drunk.

@DianneN Yes and I hope they can put some limitation in usage that a driving must still not be using it when he`s driving but if use it at home then it`s ok

It is legal in only some states, not all. It can impair the ability to drive properly, so that is a concern. It is not legal in my state.

It may have some benefits to justify it's use but it's still all about the money, revenue.

It's supposedly something that "mellows" people. The advocates state that it alleviates pain with fewer side effects that "prescription" medicines like oxycodone. I've never smoked pot (but I've gotten sick off the smell twice). I went to a concert with a guy who ate a pot brownie before going to the show...and he slept through most of the concert. He said it was great, though...don't know if he meant the brownie or the concert.

If it`s for medicinal purposes, I think it`s ok as long as it`s under a doctors responsibility because they can prove its good use to the sick person but not the same like it`s some kind of a vitamins Do you agree?

I think it maters on amount used, quality, and purpose behind it. there are amazing benefits for cancer patients. Not useful to those just wanting to get high and escape life.

Not legal in our state without a certificate and used for medical purposes. To me that's all it should be used for.

It can be used as a medicine for sure. But when it is used excessively or in a wrong way it may be harmful. So in few countries it's legal because of its medicinal uses.

I have read a lot about this grass. It has a good and a bad effect to the user. To some it is a medicine. To some it is not for they abuse it. Anything that is taken in excess is not good. I know some countries are legalizing its use with the purpose of reducing crime commission.

I also think the same I also don`t see anything wrong legalizing it but there should be limits per user. Right?

I was against it for years. I am about to smoke it right now and hit the bed or the kitchen. The pain is unbearable so I must get a little help. I hate that high feeling but pain-free is nice to enjoy at times. I hope you have a good day.

@m_audrey6788 That might be why you should read on it and check reviews from people using it. a start would be watching youtube videos from actual users. it helped me make the switch and I am glad.

Maybe it has something to do with the culture of the country. Laws usually aligned to the culture .

@xfahctor First of all, we have all no proof on that matter. I always give someone a benefit of the doubt and who am I to judge a person without clear proof of such thing. For me I consider that as just mere allegation not unless proven. what we saw, heard , read are not enough proof to blame all those things to one person. Under our constitution, everyone has the right of due process of law, thus, we can't say he is guilty unless otherwise proven by court. But I respect your opinion. So don't worry I am open to any kind of discussion.

Ok. Lets pretend for a moment that it is a world wide known fact that it is happening. What are your thoughts on it? Do you feel it's right? If it was proven to you, beyond a shadow of a doubt that it has and is happening, what would your thoughts be? And I as well respect yours.

I have heard this one too being legalized in some countries around the globe I have read a forum before that this stuff has benefits in human’s body. That is why it is legalized in some countries. There’s maybe a point in that but there will be cons to one’s health if taken much on the prescribed dosage.

Yes but it have limits. How they control the limits if they legalized it? I think I heard that they releases only a small amount for each buyer. I guess it`s under control. Thank you for sharing and dropping by. Have a great day and Happy mylotting

I have heard about getting habituated, addicted, to it. But it is banned in most countries but big business for kingpins though the runners pay even with their lives. I hope they have a good reason for allowing it easily available - siva

It has positive health benefits..a better choice is probably CBD oil with the THC removed.

It seems to have a lot of medicinal uses other than just getting high. I'm on the fence about it

Cannabis is a natural plant that God put on this planet @m_audrey6788 . Just like a lot of other 'medicinal herbs'. People rely way too much on pharmaceutical companies. A good example is the opioid problem today. Those are more deadly than cannabis ever would be.
