The 5 Biggest Marijuana Myths Debunked

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, November, 5th 2010 by THCFinder

 

 

As marijuana quickly becomes more and more socially acceptable, millions of Americans are beginning to understand the lies that they have been told about pot. Here are the five biggest myths about weed that have prevented any kind of legalization movement from getting on a roll.

1. Marijuana Causes Cancer

Many have said that smoking pot and smoking cigarettes is the same thing and, therefore; marijuana must cause cancer, as well. Not only have countless independentstudies disproved this, but some have actually found that marijuana decreased tumor growth by as much as 50%. (Sorry, cigarettes will still kill you.)

2. Marijuana Is Addictive

While prolonged use has shown to leave signs of dependence, marijuana does not actually contain a “nicotine-like” compound that causes it to be addictive. (This is similar to being “addicted” to soda.) There are little to no withdrawal symptoms, especially when compared to the withdrawal effects of drugs like cocaine or heroin – or even an alcohol-induced hangover.

3. Marijuana Is a Gateway Drug

Simply put, numerous studies have unequivocally disproved the idea that using marijuana leads to use of harder drugs. Marijuana has actually successfully been used to reduce hard drug users’ dependence on drugs. So, in reality, it is the exact opposite of a gateway drug.

4. Marijuana Causes Brain Damage

Another myth where the exact opposite thing is true: Not only have studied disproved the ideathat marijuana damages your brain, they have found that it actually protects your brain from the damage that heavy drinking can cause.

5. Marijuana Has No Medical Uses

The government has often defended its marijuana policy by citing their own studies that say that marijuana does not have any therapeutic effects. Not true. Aside from the uses listed above, marijuana have been proven to have beneficial effects on people suffering from migraines, glaucoma, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, epilepsy, stomach disorders, and dozens of other health problems.

And, most recently, even the American Medical Association called for the government to remove its restrictive Schedule 1 status.

Motorists had begun seeing the emblems on the shoulders and arms of officers stopping them at routine checks in Hamburg. The Bremen police officials stated they have not authorized their officers to use these patches so it is still unclear why we are seeing them more often lately.

Pa. man called cops to complain about bad weed!

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 25th 2010 by THCFinder

A Pennsylvania man called 911 today to let officers know the marijuana he just bought tasted like crap and didn't seem to be marijuana at all. Dectives on scene did a field test and found out that indeed the marijuana he bought was not marijuana at all.

 

This Genius just may have landed himself in hot water as detectives have stated the man could face a charge of possessing a counterfeit controlled substance.(Source: Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, http://pghtrib.com)
