It's the absurdity of the article itself. This family was growing weed and they also happened to be making explosives. Reaction? The anti-marijuana crowd is claiming that it leads to domestic terrorism. Suspect

Everything leads to domestic terrorism. If anything, I'd think that pot leads to a more relaxed group of individuals. They're too hungee to be abusive.

Well, quite the opposite according to the federal government. Of course, their statistics have been called into questions or juts flat-our disproven in clinical studies, but we'll ignore that. Marijuana is baaaad.

Hey, marijuana contributed in a large way to killing my uncle. I'm not a fan.

That's an interesting case. What happened, if you don't mind me asking?

My uncle got brain cancer from smoking cigarettes and weed. He smoked a LOT of it. Died when he was in his late 40's or early 50's. a couple years ago now. When he was in the hospital, he was hallucinating to the point where he was trying like hell to light imaginary joints in his hands and freaking out on people that visited.

Wow, THC isn't a hallucinigen, so it's very probable that it's something else that caused the hallucinations. The cancer, I can't really say, but that's more likely to be from the tobacco than anything else.

I've done a lot of studying on the medicinal properties of the plant itself. It's actually less harmful than say, drinking alcohol. Very Happy

I believe the cancer damaged a part of his brain that handled the way he perceived things around him, and that caused his "hallucinations." I'm not sure if that was a technical term used by the doctors or not. Mom just told me he was trying to imaginary joints.

You know, it is possible for weed to grow mold on it if left in a dark/damp environment for too long (similar to bread).

If he ever smoked weed with mold on it, the mold could cause hallucinations or long-term damage, but that's just a matter of upkeep.

I adamantly stand by the fact that marijuana is a less harmful vice than cigarettes or alcohol. Smile

You can tell a marijuana user by how strongly they support that its safe to use ;D

Though I'm not a stoner, I've seem a lot of research showing its safe. Most of what i've learned is that its the fact that you burn it is whats the most harmful. In the same way its like cigarettes, your inhaling smoke. Inhaling too much of any smoke is harmful.

So in short, stick to stuff like pot brownies. Its the combination of the 2 things stoners love the most, mj and food. Smile

Though on legalization, I would think its fine but the use of marijuana would need to be handled like the use of anything that affect your perception. Like alcohol, don't be under the influence while driving or handling dangerous machinery. You know who I'm refering too with this statement. >.>

Vaporizers work too if you're worried about smoke inhalation itself.

Would marijuana legalization lead to domestic terrorism?

Of course it would!

Everything does!

Buying too much fertilizer makes you a terrorist.

Eating too much makes you a terrorist.

You just have to word it correctly, and use proper imagery.

I hope no one here honestly believes that WEED caused the hallucinations. Your uncle had BRAIN CANCER (which I am VERY sorry happened, btw). That opens up a whole slew of options for why he would hallucinate. Weed and cigarettes don't cause tactile hallucinations like cocaine or amphetamine use.

And there is no peer reviewed research proving that weed causes cancer. So if the doctor said it was the cause, he made that shit up on his own and the medical world would frown on him. Research has to be peer reviewed before accepted as fact.

My grandpa had BAD hallucinations before he passed away so I know how unpleasant it is to watch someone go through this.

In the end, it was a sad experience but sadly, people like to find justification in everything. Could be because of the cigarettes or they could have simply been blamed.

And for the record, Ewal, just because people support how safe it can be, doesn't mean they are pot heads. Its called doing research and not being close minded. ;P My medical terminology teacher from England was vehemently FOR pot use.

If some of this makes no sense, I apologize in advance... I'm still half-awake. Razz

You overlooked a lil something in your sleepiness. Note the bolding. "You can tell a marijuana user by how strongly they support that its safe to use ;D",
That was mainly a jab at Matt since he seemed like he was getting overly defensive. Smile

anyway some sorta examples...
A supporter: Naw, it's safe to use.
A supporter and user: How dare you! It's safer than air! Here's research to prove it!
A person against it: It is the devil! It will kill you! Jesus told me so!

My teacher was strongly for it but not a user. xD But probably because her son had liver damage from some narcotics. So she always made a point about how she wished he chose to smoke herb instead.

Well, until this whole weed thing is fixed and legal, I'm sticking to good ol' vodka.

Straight. (don't mix it with anything)

Stolichnaya, or Kalashnikov vodka.

Ick, can't handle any hard alcohol anymore. Got so sick last Christmas. Not to mention... I was on vicodin for a while because of my knees. Vicodin plus alcohol makes for happy stomach ulcers! lol
Only alcohol I drink anymore is beer. And sometimes a daiquiri.
