What are the Negative aspect of smoking Pot?
Excerpt from a great thread. That if not kept will be deleted
it makes eating an entire roll of fruit mentos seem like a good idea.
i eat way too much, i'll destroy any close fast food establishment
being tired / burnt out.
it isnt free
i know a lot of people like its smell, but i cant stand it.
being arrested and put through the penal system for it.
Smoking entirely too much during the day and then crashing at like 8:30-9 when I want to stay up and do something.
This is the worst. No matter how intelligent I am, I can never remember what I did the previous day.
A huge problem for me. I usually end up falling asleep on my friend's floor when I smoke at his house. Then his mom comes home and gives me weird looks.
Memory loss. Not being able to remember your favourite song by your favourite band.
Muscle twitches. I've never met anyone but me who gets this. It's more when I'm smoking super strong skunk.
Not being able to move
As far as I'm concerned, these things are pretty easy to deal with.
i get panic attacks and feel like im dying
but we all went through this a couple weeks ago panic attacks are just for attention amirite
the spins are the worst by far
you get dizzy from smoking pot? You should not smoke pot.
man before i started getting panic attacks, getting drunk and then smoking would always give me the whirlies.
I had to stop smoking because the muscle twitches were so bad. It was impossible for me to sit still. If I was cold, it was a million times worse. And the burnout was the most boring feeling in the world. The cons outweighed the pros for me.
Having to smoke it, eating it is just not the same, neither are vaporizers.
the pot lip/dry mouth.
psychomotor retardation aka the "stoner accent"
I know too many people who talk like Shaggy from Scooby Doo all the time, whether they are high or not. They're permanently burnt
yeah i look retarded when i'm next level high
i cant talk clearly sometimes. ill talk this like.
yeah i look retarded when i'm next level
That's why I wear shades.
Being couch locked
Eating way too damn much
Eyes getting extremely bloodshot almost instantly.
Me too and people allllways know when I'm high.
That's why I wear shades.
i don't wear sunglasses ever, i have never even owned a pair, so i just end up looking foolishly high
the only cons about weed (for me at least) are: being burned out, hating life when i'm not high, and spending too much money on it.
i don't eat more than one meal a day, so the "stoned over eating" thing really doesn't affect me.
Sometimes (like last friday) I get so stoned I can't be around other people and feel comfortable so I leave and regret it the next day.
the cons are trivial compared to the pros.
some cons I've experienced:
one time my friend and I opened a new package of oreos and ate the whole thing in like a half hour while playing videogames. a few minutes after finishing the oreos, they came back up. it was gross.
when you smoke retarded amounts of weed for an extended period of time and then stop, sometimes it's hard to get hungry without an appetite stimulant.
if you're blazed, of course it's hard to get shit done, but that's common sense, and anyone condemning weed use for these reasons is being ignorant of the fact that there ARE people out there that are capable of practicing something called MODERATION. People love to use slippery slope arguments and stupid generalizations (one of the biggest indicators of true ignorance/willful stupidity) as an argument against marijuana use.
if you can't get shit done on weed or it affects you negatively, don't smoke weed. but don't assume that other people are as weak as you. instead of judging other people for what they do, worry about yourself.
The withdrawal symptoms of heavy chronic marijuana use are mostly mental, and I can attest to that. The appetite loss thing is the only physical symptom I've noticed, and even that isn't for sure since I haven't fully isolated the cause to be THC withdrawals.
for me, personally, the benefits have greatly outweighed the cons.
I only smoke once every few months, im a lightweight, so if I smoke while being trashed i will pass out pretty fast.
i do grow it...but not the scale that would allow me to stay high all time/out of jail
i cock block myself so much when I'm high. I just repeatedly go up to people and say "BIG GULPS HUH? OKAY SEE YA LATER!"
the only con of weed is that it costs 50 dollars for an eighth
Unlucky. How much is a quarter over there? Or does it vary from state to state?
eat too much when alone
can never remember what im talking about if im talking and pause for 2 seconds
being burnt out
sweating really hard, when I'm out of weed
You're friends spending all of the money and being "addicted".
And instead of going to parties and drinking,
They would rather just play video games and "chill".
Weed is fucking boring.
Memory loss the only thing that really pisses me off.
I went to go see Pineapple Express with a friend, and I barely remember anything that happened.
Also, driving while high, not the greatest, I always get distracted and end up in the middle of the road or halfway off the road. Sucks.
weed + xbox. when I'm in bed i twitch as if I'm playing still.
when im high, i feel like theres this expectation to say stupid shit that doesnt make sense. i really only like being high alone. i second guess everything i say.
My friends (or whatever) always bitch about how shitty their memories are and they cry about how they can't adequately formulate their ideas and sentences - this is all when they aren't high, but after consistent smoking for an extended period of time.
Once I smoked before I went to work and when I was in the subway station, I almost had a panic attack. I could barely breathe and my heart was pounding rapidly. It was really scary. I guess I was overwhelmed by all the people.
the waitress' at dennys remembering me
i can't even fucking think about going to a party or meeting new people if i'm not high. when i'm not high or just drunk all i do is say things like "god is a I AM INSECURE WITH MY OWN SEXUALITY. life is meaningless. you should probably kill yourself." or make the most grotesque and inappropriate "your mom" jokes i can think of.
everyone i know says they like me better when i'm high because i actually look/act like i enjoy being alive.
getting super sleepy when i start to come down.
that's about it.
although i haven't felt it in a long time, i use to get really bad highs where my whole body felt like it was being crushed [a really intense pressure outta nowhere] and i couldn't move or drive straight. one time i was just hot boxing in my friends car and i hit the ceiling of the car and for some reason it felt like an anvil fell on my head and i started smelling metal outta nowhere. thats the worst feeling ever after smoking out.
Weed in a mood enhancer. Always. For me, at least. Whatever I'm feeling at the time, I feel five ten fifty fold if I smoke. The only con for me is smoking when I'm alone and depressed, so I just don't do that anymore.
this sounds like a wonderful idea
- Kottonmouth Kings
- Sometimes if I smoke an obscene amount by myself, I'll get nauseous and puke. Most of the time when this happens, I've been drinking as well though.
- The cost.
- Smoking people up who will never hit you back in any way shape or form. (there are exceptions to this for certain situations, but fuck random people who want to mooch a high off of someone they don't know)
People who twitch and get paranoid when they smoke are weird.. this never happens to me. Only con to smoking is the money being spent.
mooches, having to listen to lil wayne and my friends pontificate about his greatness
I dont know if I just have a really low tolerance or something, but sometimes when I smoke I can barely keep a straight face, and I love it. A few weeks ago I got ripped with some friends and we played Mario Party. This sounds pretty cool regularly, but stoned it was fantastic and I dont think I have ever laughed so hard.
I want to eat EVERYTHING.
hat one's easy too... It slows me down from drinking my beer. Otherwise I just keep pounding beers with out a break, and I tend to get too drunk quicker than I want.
the mood swings without it are by far the worse thing, i can wake up perfectly fine and happy and one thing will go wrong and ill just loose my shit, love weed though
I forget where I put my keys and wallet every fucking day. I usually have to back inside my house several times before going out, because I forget to bring shit. Sometimes I forget why I went back up to my house before I get there.
thank god I dont have that stoner voice though. I am nothing if not articulate
for me its normally 100 to 150 to have weed for an entire week, worth it in my opinion, i rather be high over drunk any fucking day.
my roomates who didn't smoke very much before living with me get really weird and paranoid if we smoke more then 3 blunts in a sitting. the other night one of them started convulsing and saying she saw her life flashing before her eyes. i've never been that high, i was kinda jealous.
I hate weed. I hate the fact that time slows down and 1 second seems like a minute. I hate feeling like i'm dreaming. If i'm out side walking one minute i'll be on my way to a certain destination then the next minute I wont know where I am!!!! I hate not being able to escape these feelings when high, and because of all these things i get super anxious and enjoy 1/2 hour of unescapable anxiety!!!! I mean normally the second half I do end up calming down knowing that it will all be over soon, and I'll be able to laugh a bit.. all in all not worth it!
Weed once gave me the superhuman ability to be in a group of five people including myself and spend an hour and a half arguing about where to get dinner.
makes playing rockband really difficult.
