(yes i just realised wiki can be edited by anyone so i will take that into account but still!!)
Do you(meaning anyone who does not know, etc),
Schizophrenia is a mental
illeness... Mental! Brain
WHY, would you want to be permanently effected by what... 4 hours(yeah okay i never been high lol) of being high, and feeling good, but being stuck, and suffering, plus getting dignoused(sp) with schizophrenia*
(might i add schizophrenia is one of the 'top' mental illness's along with bi-ploar that is 'hard' having/going through, sure depression is hard but schizophrenia is X100 i wont go into that more deeper, if you do, want, start another thread about mental illness's)
Even the experts in the field are not exactly sure what causes it
^- That is about schozophrenia(to add)
Anyways... . . .
Which is very
likely to get when off
M-J aswell as on it...permanently
, (don't get me started!)
And, Sure the hallucinations when high might seem 'cool' or something but think of the long term effects. Now before you start on me and say there is no long term effect's, yes there is! It has been proven
by doctors etc, in that field, by psychologist's
, ect etc!
O yeah and V

However, there are also contradictory reports, and it is also possible that tolerance develops to these effects. According to the 1997 Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, fertility effects related to cannabis use are uncertain.
Research has demonstrated that human sperm contains receptors which are stimulated by substances like THC and other cannabis-related chemicals. Tests have implied that smoking of marijuana could impact the sperm's functions, though this impact is unknown. While many men who use cannabis have fathered children, certain men[specify] at risk for infertility may be more susceptible to reproductive complications.
One study by Zuckerman and colleagues, included a large sample of women with a substantial prevalence of marijuana use that was verified by urine analysis and no increased probability of birth defects was found in the sample group. Opposed to Fetal alcohol syndrome, similar type facial features and related symptoms are not associated with prenatal marijuana exposure. THC passes into the breast milk and may affect a breastfed infant.Many studies about drug use during pregnancy are self-administered by the applicants and not always anonymous. The stigma of using illicit drugs while pregnant discourages honest reporting and can invalidate the results. Studies show that women who consume cannabis while they are pregnant may also be likely to consume alcohol, tobacco, or other illicit drugs, which makes it difficult to deduce scientific facts about just marijuana use from statistical results. Very few large, well-controlled epidemiological studies have taken place to understand the connection of marijuana use and pregnancy.
A study of the development of 59 Jamaican children, one-half of the sample's mothers used marijuana during pregnancy, was research from birth to age 5 years. Pregnant non-using mothers were paired with cannabis users who matched age, parity, and socioeconomic status. Testing was done at 1, 3, and 30 days of age with the Brazelton Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scales, and at ages 4 and 5 years with the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities test. Data was also collected from the child's home environment and temperament, as well as standardized tests. The results over the entire research period showed no significant differences in development testing outcomes between using and non-using mothers. At 30 days of age, however, the children of marijuana-using mothers had higher scores on autonomic stability and reflexes. The absence of any differences between the exposed and nonexposed groups in the early neonatal period suggest that the better scores of exposed neonates at 1 month are traceable to the cultural positioning and social and economic characteristics of mothers using marijuana that select for the use of marijuana but also promote neonatal development.
With all the effect's, etc of mj, i don't think i would want to risk anything with my body, also to add that, if my partner/b/f, was smoking mj, he would have to have a good talking to by me, if we were serious and i loved them, i would therefor care, meaning i dont want anything
to happen to them, in any emotional, physical, and any other way possible and would do anything in my power to help them and take care of them, and i suggest if you care about your friend, you do the same, unless you just.. don't want to.
Dont! get me wrong though, im not going to judge someone if they are taking drug's, drinking, and im certinally
not a angel myself(fook! haha laugh at!), but i don't feel the need to have mj to enjoy life/get more out of life or feel good(i'll just hook up XD and 'hit' it =P LOL
)... but i just don't need mj but
then again i would not say no to try
, i mean hell, you only live once
BTW; *Anything* can cause cancer,
