But, here's the thing. People want to smoke pot. There is no way you will stop it short of executing all users.

The decades long war on drugs is a failure.

Legalize and tax the shit out of it.

The difference between tobacco and marijuana is that one is destructive in all areas, and one is actually highly medicinal. The breakthroughs in medical marijuana are remarkable. Smoke in the lungs is not a good thing, but it is not the only way to benefit from marijuana, and is the least healthy way to benefit from medical marijuana. Seizures, PTSD, the list is endless of conditions helped greatly by medical marijuana.

Edible marijuana is 100% completely safe :thup:
Edible marijuana still has negative effects on the brain.
Highly f*cking debatable
Some of the sudy results are questionable, but for the most part, yeah it's harmful to the brain long term. Dopamine receptors become damaged and certain areas the of brain change in structure.
Lots of things do much much worse. And yes, your results are questionable.

Now I have never tried pot, probably never will. But any smoke, whether tobacco, pot, or wood smoke is damaging to the lungs, and can cause cancer. But the social damage from outlawing things like pot, alcohol, and tobacco is far greater than the benefits from outlawing those items.
