Well I'm not sure about the benefits reaally but one could be the high sensation Which makes you feel moe reelaxed but some of the harms could be things such as paranoia, sickness etc. You can find a lot about something like this on wikipedia. Excuse any mistakes, sausage fingers on a iPod touch :) .

Tanner Originally Answered: Questions For Anyone Who Self Harms Or Anyone With An Eating Disorder?
Self-harming, 15 (not cutting, cutting started when I was 20). I didn't learn about self-harm, per se. It just happened when I started. But also I guess word-of-mouth in terms of hearing about it. I knew there was something wrong with my eating habits and since I knew about mental illness, I looked up with I could have. I developed my eating disorder (EDNOS) when I was 20. I did have disorder eating since I was 15 though due to major depressive disorder/anxiety. The only time I had to go to the hospital was for self-harm, which wasn't bad at all, but I was in pretty bad emotional distress and my university felt I should go. It was a bad (and pointless) idea and I wish I hadn't gone. Yes, both my self-harm and eating disorder have changed me. Of course, they have taken over my life and it is hard to get better, despite all the fighting I put in. But also they have made me more aware of these issues, of mental health. I am more sympathetic/empathetic/understanding to others who go through the issues I deal with. I feel like being able to understand others lets me help them more. I was technically diagnosed with major depressive disorder. I knew something wasn't right when I was 15, but I did everything to deny it and be "normal". I didn't want to be different or an outsider, and I definitely didn't want to deal with feeling depressed, so I did everything I could to avoid it. Thus, self-harm and disorder eating provided my distraction. I didn't seek help until I was almost 21, as my younger brother (surprisingly) somehow convinced me to see one of the therapists at my university. Before then I had no intention or thought of getting better. I had told my family for the first time in five and a half years, which was a huge step, but it was my younger brother who pushed for me getting help. I am still recovering, so I don't know how long it will take me. It is a fight every day, a struggle. I am still working on winning this war/battle. Even in my moments of "recovery" I still struggle with these things. I don't think they will go away 100%, but I have to be better than these harmful things and push past them. Barely anyone knows of my mental health issues. My younger brother has been the most important to me though. He is the most supportive and understanding. He has dealt with self-harm and anxiety so he understands what I'm going through even if our issues stem from different situations. I think others being involved in someone's recovery is especially important. Even if it is just one trusting person, as my younger brother is to me. Even though I told my family my younger brother is the main supporter and person I care about in this. Edit: Something to look into for your story. Look up Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It's an anxiety disorder that can develop after an event resulting in psychological trauma, which in your story the boy seeing his parents being murder could cause this. Just a thought.

1) I was 11 when I started self harming. 13 when I started starving myself. 2) I learned about cutting through a friend who cuts. I didn't know about EDNOS when I started by learned about it on a pro-Ana site. 3) I haven't had to get medical attention yet and hopefully I never will. 4) No I haven't been to a mental hospital. 5)Self harm has changed to to where I am constantly thinking about hiding my scars or when I can cut next. EDNOS changed me to where I hated myself and couldn't eat without feeling disgusting. 6) major depression and severe anxiety 7) I knew I had a problem with self harm when I was cutting everyday. I knew I had a problem with an eating disorder when I was almost passing out daily. I sought help from my friends for both. 8) I wouldn't say I'm recovered. I don't know if I ever could. Even if I go 5 years without cutting there is always a chance of relapse because it's an option to deal with pain. Even if I haven't starved myself or made myself throw up in 10 years I wouldn't say I don't have a problem anymore. I will always have that nagging voice in the back of my mind telling me to not eat, I will always have a low body image. I will NEVER be FULLY recovered. 9) Like I said, I'm always going to struggle with it. 10) Without the support I register from my friends I don't know where I would be. I definitely wouldn't be 2 months self harm free or at a healthy weight and still have a positive body image. My friends where the whole reason I chose recovery. They made me realize I am worth recovery and I think that was the hardest part for me.

1. I was 11 when I stared self-harming, started starving and purging when I was 13. 2. I learned about self-harm on the internet, and eating disorders from my mom (who has one.) 3. I reached a point where I was hospitalized for self-harming so severely. My psychiatrist saw I was getting way worse, so he forced me to be hospitalized. 4. I've been to a mental hospital twice. A week for both times. 5. Yes, it has changed me. My life revolves around these things, every single thing I do and think. 6. I've been misdiagnosed with Major Depression but then they figured out I really have Bi-polar 2, Anxiety and Borderline Personality Disorder. 7. I didn't ask for help, it was forced upon me. 8. I haven't fully recovered, I'm still in the beginning of the process, it will take years. 9. I know for a fact I will ALWAYS struggle with this. 10. Oh, I wouldn't even be alive if I didn't have any support.

Marijuana is harmless. THC is the active chemical. It has been known to cause cancer, but only if consumed in unimaginable quantities that even Tommy Chong wouldn't consider toking up. Even broccoli could cause cancer in extremely large quantities. Marijuana has been said to kill brain cells, but that has been disputed. As far as it's benefits go, there's quite a few. THC has been known to treat cancer effectively and help cure glaucoma. If ingested through a vaporizor (no smoke), it can really benefit those who suffer from Asthma.

Peregrine Originally Answered: Why do marijuana legalization supporters ignore the fact that the states can't legalize Marijuana?
First of all Obama *did not order* the Feds to follow state law, the President doesn't have that power. What Obama and Bush before him have done, is ask the Feds not to use their resources to go after legitimate medical marijuana use (rather use their resources for important crimes) and for the most part the Feds obliged. Now that this misinformation is out if the way.... As for the States.... You absolutely right, the States cannot "legalize" marijuana. So how is that some States allow people to grow marijuana since they cannot legalize it? The Federal government cannot force the states to enforce most Federal laws, but the government can use things like highway funds and other government grants to coerce states into enforcing federals law (this was upheld by the US Supreme Court). So the Federal government can pull funding if States don't endorce certain federal laws. When something is against Federal law, the States can decide how to criminalize it. So what States have done is say this, "we cannot legalize it, but we will not criminalize medical marijuana use" and have directed law enforcement in their State not go after medical marijuana use or the co-ops who supply it. Most Police Departments have obliged the States. There are those in government and the legal community who say some States have legalized marijuana in principal, even if not in writing. However at the urging of the President and powerful members of Congress, the Feds have ignore legitimate medical marijuana. However, the Feds have gone after co-ops whom they believe have not been selling it for medical reasons. In California many co-ops have been shut down. Make no mistake, growing and selling marijuana is still against federal law and can prosecuted.

The states can take any act that is not mentioned int the Constitution, including drug laws, to the Supreme Court and try it against the 10th Amendment. Granted, you often have corrupt judges that might rule against the 10th Amendment because they don't like it but fact is, the right to make laws concerning marijuana is not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution therefor the Federal Government has no legal authority to enforce such laws-commerce clause or otherwise. So it all comes down to how corrupt and partisan the federal judges are at the time a state wants to legalize it. Meanwhile a workaround is that states merely not care if a substance is illegal and not enforce the law. The Federal Government cannot force states to enforce federal laws-in fact we see in Arizona what happens when they try. If the FBI wants to send marshals around to all the states making sure people don't smoke joints, good luck finding enough and funding this. Perhaps you did not know it is also illegal to put advertisements on telephone poles. States have EVERY right to remove marijuana laws from their state law rosters. There is no Federal law that mandates that states have anti-drug laws. The states can just force the Federal Government to enforce their own laws alone-making the whole thing their problem. Good luck with that.
