Reality: The Power of Hemp and It’s Countless Uses
I have to take issue with one statement made in this article…Marijuana is NOT addictive. It has none of the typical dependency or withdrawal reactions in the brain like cocaine, heroin or cigarettes. This is a huge misrepresentation of the drug and one of the greatest reasons why it should be legalized.
Cigarettes are HIGHLY addictive, cause everything from DNA damage to heart disease and 9 different forms of cancer, and yet they’re perfectly legal. This makes no sense, but it’s due largely to misunderstanding and often intentional misdirection and obfuscation of the facts.
Lastly, I should note that it’s also not a “gateway drug”. Many of us experimented with marijuana in college, however, not a one of us had any intention of trying other recreational drugs like cocaine or even LSD. In fact, those kids that were “coke heads” were pretty much ostracized.
In regards to marijuana being addicting, it has no chemical/physical addictions, but it can still be addicting since it does provide “good feelings.” It is easy to escape to those good feelings, like many do with other drugs, activities, and things in life. It is not really fair to label marijuana addicting if other things can be addicting in the same premise. For instance, I know people addicted to all sorts of things: processed foods (though they literally can be addicting :P), video games, bad habits, or just any random thing that can promote happiness in a person. Parents should not worry about their kids being addicted to weed, but instead be worried if their children have addictive personalities.
Addictive or gateway drug? No, its an “exit drug”, for it is being used by hardcore meth, coke, heroin addicts get off their real problems by using the MEDICINE that history has always shown it to be, except since Anslinger went on the rampage for Big Money.
There’s been a lot of talk back and forth regarding whether marijuana is or is not (as I asserted) addictive. So here are some studies from both sides of the argument:

So, you may still believe the lies because you feel the government looks out for your best interest, but if its so bad for us, why did our government patent it in 2003?
Marijuana is so bad for us, the USA patented all the good stuff about it in 2003.
Read the patent:
Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in thetreatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. …”

“Marijuana CAUSES memory loss, so it should never be recommended for “treatment” of Alheimer’s…
Wrong. See pubs.acs.org/…/mp060066m. (August 9, 2006
Copyright © 2006 American Chemical Society) To quote the abstract:
“Here, we demonstrate that the active component of marijuana, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), competitively inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) as well as prevents AChE-induced amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) aggregation, the key pathological marker of Alzheimer’s disease. Computational modeling of the THC−AChE interaction revealed that THC binds in the peripheral anionic site of AChE, the critical region involved in amyloidgenesis. Compared to currently approved drugs prescribed for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, THC is a considerably superior inhibitor of Aβ aggregation, and this study provides a previously unrecognized molecular mechanism through which cannabinoid molecules may directly impact the progression of this debilitating disease. ”
In reality, the undiagnosed leading causes of Alzheimers are toxic neural metal poisoning and MSG, both of which cause excessive neural damage due to excitotoxicity in the brain neural receptors, which cause the brain to have issues. B12 in large doses (5000 mcg+) helps counter the effects and the damage and repair those receptors, especially on the MSG side. That’s also why there is some belief that Alzheimer’s is a form of elderly ASD, because of the metal toxicity commonalities and neural effects in terms of the neural operations (although the physical manifestations vary).

Toking and Driving:
As for the worries of cannabis and driving, although driving under its use is certainly to be discouraged, it does not cause nearly the impairment of alcohol. Our very own federal government reports that driving under the influence of cannabis is generally safer than driving under the influence of alcohol.
— “A low THC dose (100 ug/kg) does not impair driving ability in urban traffic to the same extent as a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.04g%.”
— “Drivers under the influence of marijuana tend to over-estimate the adverse effects of the drug on their driving quality and compensate when they can; e.g. by increasing effort to accomplish the task, increasing headway or slowing down, or a combination of these.”
— “Drivers under the influence of alcohol tend to under-estimate the adverse effects of the drug on their driving quality and do not invest compensatory effort.”
