Pretty much. Getting drunk all the time has a negative effect on your body, which is what I don't understand about pot. Why is it illegal when alcohol isn't? They're both bad for you if done too much, yet neither leaves any harm if done sparingly..

I smoke pot once a week. Maybe less, maybe more, depends on the situation.

Just like everything else in the world, moderated use isn't very harmful and can lead to some good times.

Use, do not abuse; neither abstinence nor excess ever renders man happy.

QFT. +1 for you...

It's fine to smoke and drink occasionally and socially, just don't make it an obsession or habit.

A perfect example of an uneducated opinion, have you even tried it? If a person doesn't have the will power to step away from marijuana after 1 cone then they're gonna make for one hell of an alcoholic when they start drinking or even if they start smoking cigarettes because 'they're not as dangerous as marijuana' and 'I make my own so they don't have all those nasty chemicals that premades do' they're gonna be smokin 50 a day?

Just don't get sucked in to the whole "I have to be drunk to be cool" thing that teenagers have these days. In some countries like Taiwan the drinking age is 18, but everyone drinks at like a gathering or at the dinner table. You know...it's just to enjoy your time and have fun.

It's not like teenagers here in America where everyone is passed out and vomiting. That's just...not cool. Makes you look pathetic to be honest...

And how is that? You know that weed isn't addictive right? Or at least it's not compared to cigarettes or alcohol...

yeah I am pretty sure when it comes to marijuana being addictive it is rarely possible. Long time and heavy users can eventually become addicted to the THC due to the regular amount they smoke by experiencing withdrawl symptoms. People have to remember that it is just a plant but when others start concentrating it and lacing it with other things then that's just ridiculous.
