    Well it depends really. It can harm u, just like a cigarrete can harm u. Afterall u use baccy with it when u smoke it so it does just as much harm. Also smoking it a lot, in my oppinion, can cause forgetfullness, modd swings and paranoia coz Ive seen what my brother is like. Everyone has different oppinions on it though, I dont think its that bad at all and should be legal as in a lot of ways its no worse than smoking fags but it all depends just how much of it u end up smoking really.

    Like lolly said, it depends on how much you smoke. Inhaling any kind of smoke is bad for you and can give you lung cancer, make you short of breath, make you cough a lot, etc. Weed can also make you forgetful, apathetic, stupid (you kill a lot of brain cells by smoking it- I know some people who are such burnouts I can't even have a normal conversation with them), it can make you depressed, it can make you manic, it can make you paranoid. It's definitely a drug and can definitely hurt you.

    If you're willing to take these risks, and think the benefits are worth it, it's your choice. But don't do it because your friends think it's cool or because they say it's perfectly safe.

    The extreme faction is closer than you thought.

    I support the legalization of cannabis.

    is cannabis safe? The classification for cannabis is a lot lower than most over the counter drugs( i'll find its number.), so that has to say something, no death has ever been recorded to inolve only cannsbis.

    To the point about killing brain cells.
    cannabis produces a chemmical called thc-delta 9, which does not harm any cells in the body all I have to say dead brain cells are due to the lack of oxygen in the blood.

    General pionts all test this far on cannabis have been angled to keep the mad reafer campain alive, however just to add one piont. the Austrailian goverment tested the effects of all illegal drugs on the affect of driving, the sme person driving sober and stoned showed none or very little change.
    however driving stoned in the snow is like a scene from star wars.

    Every year over 30,000 people die from Alcohol related incidents along with well over 180,000 people with smoking...

    Everything is dangerous, hell Life is dangerous... do something because you want to not because other people pressure you into it, don't believe everything people say about anything... they'll never know it all and new evidence good or bad comes out all the time... just think long and hard and decide what you want... <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    I very much doubt these deaths were from directly taking cannabis. More likely, I suspect the deaths were due to accidents of some sort while the individual was stoned.

    If not I would love to know where you got those figures from!

    Have you got the link address?

    I'm sure that figure is based on global numbers and not just for the UK, if it is for the UK then it'll probably be over a 10 year period...

    E for example is claimed the lifes of approx 68 people in the UK since 1987, which is pretty low considering the amount taken each night every weekend..

    ok i found this in glamour magazine and thought of this thread.

    Cannabis - 1 joint a day.

    Damage done:
    • chronic coughing and bronchitis (cannabis smoke is held in the lungs for longer than cigarette smoke, therefore it causes more damage)
    • memory lapses
    • lower hormone levels (impairing fertility)
    • lung cancer

      Bounce back time:
    • respiratory problems - one to nine months
    • memory difficulty - most memory functions return within a few weeks of giving up, but some are lost permanently
    • hormone levels - fertility returns to normal within 3 to 6 months, as with cigarettes
    • lung cancer - after ten years the risk of developing cancer is the same as for non smokers.
