Take me, for example. I have ACTUALLY SMOKED marijuana for a LONG TIME, and KNOW what I'm talking about. Stating fact is not biased. It is stating fact.
Marijuana will NOT mess up your life, or your family. If that happens, it would have happened without the MJ.
Second of all, if we use the reasons given to us why we shouldn't smoke pot that "it's bad for you so it should stay illegal", then you can logically assume that every other thing that is bad for you should be illegal such as cars, guns, eggs, bacon, butter, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol.
Since these are not illegal, (but ADMITTEDLY BAD FOR YOU) you can logically assume that there are other reasons for it being illegal.
Coming from somebody who has had PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, smoking anything is bad for you. That is your choice, correct? The actual chemical THC is 'bad' for you in that it makes you slow, but that is why you smoke it in the first place. That is the desired effect, so it is not actually bad for you if you think about it.
Smoking tobacco is bad for you, and in my (experienced) opinion, worse for you than marijuana.
The worst thing about MJ is that it is illegal. It is not intrinsically bad for you, since none of the effects are permanent, and they are all reversible. Do the research, people, this is not biased information, this is simple fact.
Fact. Coming from somebody who has real-life experience with it, not propaganda, and not outwardly-biased opinions, it is not "bad".
