You know, you actually CAN OD on marijuana, but you have to smoke around 680 kilos of it. So... unlikely.
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, and then you od on the carbon monoxide not the thc
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, 15 kilos in 10 mins if i remember correctly
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, ASAPScience c:
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, Challenge accepted
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, you would pass out long before it could cause lasting damage.
You'd have to have time smoking equivalent of a force feeding.
@I Are Lebo, not time. The.
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, more important is the new research linking most drug use, marijuana included, and Parkinsons syndrome and dementia. Is very interesting. More or less, the more you use, the more likely you are to get it, especially early on set. People need to realise that screwing with your brain chemistry has a very negative outcome.
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, or you know. It can give you lung cancer like anything else that let's off carbon emissions
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, to be fair it has a bunch of negative side effects none of which lead to death though
@Adolf Jamaal Hitler, or (my therapist told me this), he smoked it once, and the way the chemicals were, they shut down his lungs and he was in ICU for weeks.
Like this if you don't smoke weed!
@BigfootUnibrowMan, Better watch out for TotallynottheNSA
@BigfootUnibrowMan, don't smoke it, just enjoy being around it. Learning about it. Smoke it sometimes.
@BigfootUnibrowMan, i respect ur decision to not smoke however ur life is not as enjoyable as mine
@BigfootUnibrowMan, honestly think it's kind of dumb
@BigfootUnibrowMan, just remember it can be very enjoyable in moderation and in the right mindset. Its the people who ruin it, not the great plants fault.
@The Puppet Man, that's is where you are wrong. Weed makes food taste better, gives you better longer sleep, and makes you laugh at dumb sh¡t. It is a magical awesome drug that every one should do. There would be no wars if everyone was just high all the time. Hell it even reduces cancer in some situations
@Ihatepuns, you seem to be trying a bit hard to convince ppl here its so good
@The Puppet Man, I can't believe 60+ people don't smoke. This app must have a lot of children on it. And I simply love weed if u can't tell.
@SleepingBear, i dont understand your question.
@Stabby, stab stab stab
@SleepingBear, ok. Yes, im glad.
@BigfootUnibrowMan, I love people who go "I'm not addicted to weed, now let me talk about how much I love it and how I think everyone should do it for 3 hours straight."
@Ihatepuns, this may surprise you but there are plenty of adults that don't care for it either. Age and opinion have no correlation when it comes to weed.
@Leprechaun Giant, I don't mean this as an insult but I find it funny that your first statement is "don't smoke it" and your last statement is "smoke it sometimes" lol its like you gradually changed your mind while writing your comment
@Wendigo, I'm addicted and proud. I m also addicted to coffee and video games and everyone needs to be like me cause I'm better then u lames #weedordie
@The Puppet Man, ur right. That was ignorant of me. I was just thinking like 8 pics over
@Ihatepuns, you've proved my point way before this comment but thanks for giving me more examples.
@Ihatepuns, fair enough
@Wendigo, i thought ur point was "I love people who go I'm not addicted to weed, now let me talk about how much I love it..." I told u I'm addicted and proud. Just like ur probably addicted to porn or bacon. It doesn't matter. Do what makes you happy and don't judge me. (I was jking bout everyone needs to be like me, but I guess u dint understand that)
@The Puppet Man, it was actually a modified quote from American dad, It occurred to me AFTER I posted it that it may not be that recognizable lol Roger was talking about heroine though
@Leprechaun Giant, oh nice. I don't watch American Dad enough to have gotten that lol.
@Ihatepuns, people who do weed are fine, I just don't like it when people need to tell everyone that they do weed, just like you probably don't care for people going around saying weed is bad, don't do weed, ect. Also when it comes to sarcasm, it can be hard to pick up in a comment
@The Puppet Man, you can search YouTube for "Roger heroine lover" and it's one of the first one and about 12 seconds
@Wendigo, fair enough. But the "like if you don't smoke weed" comment is lameo pajameo. It's kinda like religion. You want others to see the light
@Ihatepuns, when there is a controversial subject, people may want to show what side they support and when it comes down to it there is a right way and a wrong way. It's important to be careful when these kinds of scenarios show up so an all out flame war doesn't erupt.
@Opii, correct. I do think that controversial subjects should be avoided in general on this app. They end up bringing division not unity to this community
@BigfootUnibrowMan, just a general statement to all those who have replied. Make your judgement based off of your own research and experience, not based on some predetermined socially acceptable/unacceptable way of thinking. I'd recommend you try it at least once in your lives, or don't, like I give a fvck. Like most things, it's not for everyone so don't try and force enjoyment on those who haven't tried it/disliked it.
@Wendigo, I'm an adult and capable of real conversation. I hope ur not butt hurt cuz I'm not. I laugh and enjoy most comments/arguments. There is nothing wrong with conversation. I will continue saying what I want and arguing with those who dare
@Ihatepuns, nothing wrong with debate, it just needs to be done properly
@Wendigo, smoke weed or die
@Ihatepuns, smoke weed and still die? 😂 No but seriously guys just do you, if people like to state that they don't smoke weed that's cool, if you do, no prob. Just love the fact that everyone is different! It would suck to be in a room full of people who only talk about the same things with no progress in character!
@Ihatepuns, you mustn't have noticed he also made a comment for "like if you DO smoke weed". He was just conducting a poll for both sides.
@Robogrampy, lol I dint realize it was the same dude.
@SleepingBear, stabby stabby? Stabby stabby, stabby!
@Ihatepuns, You know, on of the reasons you may have switched comment ideas in the middle of typing is from marijuana. Reduced memory and cognition, reduced attention span, trouble focusing for longer than a minute or two, etc
@Ihatepuns, I just want you to know I'm high as fvck right now and appreciate the hell out of you
@The Puppet Man, it's so pointless, like I can have a great time sober!
@Godricgryffindor , exactly. I don't need anything special to have a good time. I can have a great day just hanging out with a friend really.
@BigfootUnibrowMan, a dab a day keeps the bitches away
@ihatecums, Except the bad bitches;)
@BigfootUnibrowMan, bad bitches love weed. And me
We get it, you smoke pot.
You could have a room of burning weed and die of oxygen deprivation.
Marijuana can have adverse effects on memory. You can also damage your dopamine levels if you intake too much within short intervals over a certain amount of time. Pot may not have any addictive properties to those who use it rarely or have just started. However, many people with addictive personalities get caught up with the bad aspects of it. Another note: constant smoke inhalation and coughing can damage your lungs and breathing ability. Another dangerous side to marijuana is the crowds. Certain areas have smokers that can(and will) influence you into actual dangers. If you smoke or plan on trying, remember to stay safe and informed! Always research these things before blindly taking other people's word for it.
@Krinko, Unfortunately not many people here actually know that's marijuana is harmful. Glad to see someone else who's done there research about side effects and neural changes with the drug.
@Krinko, With memory it also affects attention and focus
I mean lung cancer
@Frodude95, edibles and vapes
@Captain Charles Vane, yeah but people still smoke it.
@Frodude95, that is true, though the increase in risk is still significantly lower than cigarettes not to say that it isn't bad still.
@Frodude95, but the carcinogens and actually burning it are to blame there, not the weed itself
@Frodude95, actually there hasn't been any link between marijuana giving you cancer. It happens with cigs because of the chemicals in them not the smoke itself. In some cases it has shown to help and even cure cancer patients depending on type of cancer and way the marijuana was administered
A Brazilian drugs trafficker was killed by his own stock when he was crushed by half a ton of marijuana.
The man died after he lost control of his car and hit a tree, resulting in his stock of weed stored in the backseat shooting forward, squashing him against the wheel.
@D0N RAM0N, u thought it was a woman? I could be totally wrong though. Haven't seen that in a long time lol
@ToriBlack, I read about a woman overdosing on marijuana apparently
@D0N RAM0N, I'm NY or somewhere east coast right? She had a heart attack and they blamed it on weed. But she had a history of heart problems so they said it was probably the stray that broke the camels back. Kinda said tho 😢
@ToriBlack, the one I found was from England
Smoking is bad. Mmmkay?
Actually, smoking anything is bad for you. This is because smoke in general, is a carcinogen. If you rolled up a plain piece of paper and smoked that, it would be bad for you. This is why firefighters tell you that when in a fire, don't stand up staight and inhale as much smoke as you can, but to stay low so 1: you don't suffocate by lack of oxygen and 2: you don't form a layer of soot on the inside of your lungs decreasing their capacity to bring oxygen to your bloodstream. When you inhale any kind of smoke, whether it's from a fire, a cigarette, or a joint, that might not kill everyone who smokes, but it's definitely not good for you. Just thought a bit of science would be useful here XD
Or you just man the fvck up and deal with your problems head on, just sayin.
@DownvoterGuy, I don't see the relevance
@ToriBlack, It's referencing the fact that many stoners have underlying problems that they are trying to escape from by chronically getting high and avoiding work.
@Can yew knot, and where did you get that evidence from? I know hundreds of stones that work part time and get good grades in college. That's just a blanket generalization based on a small minority of recreational users or medical.
Like this if you smoke weed!
@BigfootUnibrowMan, I smoke all the weeds, man. How about we hit up some Mary Janes *drops badge* ignore that
@BigfootUnibrowMan, smoke weed or die is what I always say
@BigfootUnibrowMan, anyone who is still ignorant enough to say weed causes problems and not the people who misuse it to crazy extents can get the fack off mah lawn. Smoke weeeed almost erry dayy.
@Ihatepuns, looks like I'm dying then
@Iluminoodle, I'm sorry to hear you haven't found marijuana. Once you accept it into ur heart, everything will be more chill
@Stabby, If you think marijuana doesn't cause mental and emotional problems, you are the ignorant one. Changing brain chemistry is rarely ever good or even "not harmful"
@Can yew knot, mj is not harmful. When you buy weed from a sketchy guy named frank that is probably laced with aunt killer thats when it gets harmful. People who are too lazy to go to work in general and smoke all day make it harmful. For any responsible adult it is not harmful. I beleive that as a long time user i know.
@Stabby, Marijuana causes memory and cognition problems. Reduced attention and focus, slower cognition, less attention span, trouble concentrating, less forethought, and so on.
@Stabby, Well, since you try to base it off your experience, I'll base it off mine. I can observe all these effects in the three major potheads of our school. Actually, most of these effects can be observed in all potheads, but they are most obvious in the major ones. They sit in classes staring around. They are always the first ones to forget where or when something is. Most of what they are told goes to short term memory and is forgotten. They are fidgety and nervous after long tests, they despise sitting in the same class for more than 20 min.
@Stabby, If you want to move away from personal insights, feel free to do so. I know and have numerous sources showing all these effects in clinical studies.
@Can yew knot, this is what ruins weed. These kids. THESE potheads are actually going to be lazy with or without weed. I smoke allthe time and have a 3.9 gpa. These kids are high in class what do expect? thats their fault. The plant is not to blame itis the misuse. Instead if doing homework these kids will get high because they are lazy people in general. Wether a study says so or not does not matter to me because of how little research there actually is. I have smoked plenty and im damn responsible. Its people like you whp think they can copy and paste the current numbers that think these things and its incredible to me how ignorant it is. I know i probably wont change your high and mighty mindset on this as you already have your mind made up or probably just want to not give in as to not seem like an idiot, but i want you in the real world to maybe give it a second chance. Dont look at idiot stoners as the standard for pot. Think for yourself.
@Stabby, Your GPA citing is untelaible at best, and you refute many large, professional studies because apparently you don't feel any effects? I could as all the potheads in our class and they would also say that everything is chill and that they have no effects. It is literally proven than it messes with memory retention and attention. You may not feel the effects, but either you have or will have them after repeated use.
@Stabby, none of these are "only while high" effects. These effects persist long after the drug leaves the body and can be very damaging especially to younger brains.
@Can yew knot, ok pal you wanna beleive everything your 30 year old psch teacher tells you be my guest i no longer care
@Stabby, Cool just live in your own stoner bubble, try not to smoke it up. Actually it wouldn't matter, you wouldn't see anything outside your head anyway.
@Stabby, What's ironic is that you can't even keep you attention focused to one comment chain for long and have no drive to compare science lol thats marijuana for ya'
@Can yew knot, nope just dont see the point in arguing since you obviously are getting way too butthurt. You really keep answering back and its pretty annoying. I just dont see YOU to be worth my time as you are just some random idiot. Good luck to you in the future bud. Bless your heart.
@Can yew knot, all those problems and almost every influential person ever does or has smoked weed
@Stabby, Well seeing as you're a pothead who figures that his own experience is somehow predictive of the whole population and refutes large studies with nothing but "lol not me so not true mannnn" it's no wonder that the truth and facts annoy you. You smoke all day and are passive-aggressive to anyone that tells you it's harmful. As far as being an idiot, I'm not the one smoking and defending an illegal drug, all the meanwhile ignoring facts and dismissing evidence without reason.
@Ihatepuns, What makes you say that? Did they smoke it once or chronically for years as an addiction? What's your evidence? Just cause your a moron that's high as a kite every day of your life doesn't make you right about the substance you're addicted to.
@Can yew knot, i guess I can't prove it but just about every rapper or musician or founding father. I ll smoke as much as I want fvck off mate
@Ihatepuns, Lol do you even know what a founding father is? Cause they didn't smoke marijuana you ignorant fool
@Ihatepuns, Smoke all you want. Do any other addictive illegal drug you want too. Just don't throw a riot when your arrested or fined. Mkay?
@Can yew knot, many founding fathers grew weed and hemp. That is a fact. The Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper. And it is not illegal everywhere and is not going to everywhere else. Ur being the ignorant one
@Ihatepuns, No shjt. Sherlock. Most people of any stature back then grew hemp. Ropes, sails, cloths, and paper were made from it. Did they ever smoke it to "feel good" cause there life's sucked? Nope. It was a commercial product before. That's like saying doing heroin is OK because just about every famous person ever has taken an opiate painkiller.
@Can yew knot, just quit. You think u are so much more intelligent then you really are. It is nothing like saying heroin is ok. We're talking bout weed and people back then smoked it and it gonna be legal everywhere again. Get used to it b¡tch
@Ihatepuns, Is that the last plea of ignorance from a loosing debater? Hah. I use your own logic of "important person used it for different good reason, I should be able to use it for bad" against you and you get your panties in a bunch and go ad hominem on me. Do you honestly think people back then smoked that? Especially important people? It was a valuable commercial product. No record of any smoking, yet plenty of its societal uses as fiber. Quit getting butthurt about the facts of your own drug and do some research for once in your life.
@Can yew knot, You don't know what you are taking about. U do research. And I dint really attack you. Sorry if u feel that way...pussy
Smoke of any sort is harmful. So brownie up, yo.
It is actually possible to slip into a coma when going to sleep stoned. Just a general safety warning y'all =)
@Mr Bombastic, it's possible to slip into a coma after taking Nyquil
@Mr Bombastic, lo
@BigfootUnibrowMan, How's your memory? Bad, short? You easily distracted yet? You will be
@Can yew knot, N
it can also kill you if you stuff it up your nose and down your throat and suffocate
I understand it's nearly impossible to OD on weed, but when I took my first ever bong rip I nearly cleared the tube and I got a HUGE rush of THC, way more than my body could handle. I was puking all over my friends yard and my phone said my heart rate was 180+, heart attacks can happen at 170. So I'm not so sure it's as hard to harm yourself as people say. Don't get me wrong, I still burn, but I take the tubes lightly :)
@RAM Card, 200 bpm is maximum the human body can take. Like your heart would literally explode at 201. The formula is HR:220-age for maximum heart rate. So I'm just guessing that you got nauseous which isn't uncommon and that your Phone sucks lol plus if you were that fuvked up I doubt you could accurately measure your pulse. Smoke on my friend
@ToriBlack, no for real, I could just feel my heart pumping fast af and my phone reads my pulse perfectly all the time. But thanks for the info
@ToriBlack, unless he is 40+, 220-age 180. So it's most certainly plausible
@Shichika Yasuri, *220-age is greater than 180
@ToriBlack, that just can't be true. In high school when we did heart rate monitors and played ultimate Frisbee I reached 200 - 207 a lot. My highest ever is 210 or 211. This is because I fvcking love ultimate Frisbee so I was up and down the court (it was indoors) constantly plus I was out of shape. So yea, can't be true because my heart was never in any pain even at 209 and 220 - 18 is 202 so with your statement I should be dead.
@The Puppet Man, yeah you should lol I didn't do the math man. I'm just telling you the science. Also I know for a fact that phone and school hrm suck. If they didn't doctors would just use their phone. In sports medicine we had very different hrm than PE did. Also 210 is way high, unless you are super fat that isn't healthy at all. If you are a healthy 19 year old doing sports you should hit 110 maybe. 130- 150 for like PE kids. You would literally have to be extremely fat to get that heart rate.
@The Puppet Man, we ran 3 full gasers for football and to HR after and the fattest kid's, 315, heart rate was 165 so I doubt that's true.
@ToriBlack, I'm not extremely fat but thanks for that thought. I was just heavily working myself (ironically I was the most active) so maybe the monitors sucked like you said. The reason it was high was because I didn't exercise outside of gym and then those days I was exercising the hardest I ever have.
@The Puppet Man, I wasn't calling you fat I apologize if it came off offensive. I was just saying that your heart is working 3x more than necessary. It's pumping as hard as it would for someone your age over weight. Didn't mean to come of rude, had a long day at work.
@ToriBlack, I don't know where your getting 200 as max. I did a VO2 Max on myself in a lab during the summer with my professor and some other students, my heart rate peaked at 205+ for a couple minutes (after more than 40 min running hard and up slope) until I ended the exercise.
@ToriBlack, Oh an reading the other comments I will point out that I am in very good shape. 6'1" and 167lbs. The 205+ was done in a sports lab at a university. The gear was highly accurate (lab used by PhD Prof). Peaked after running 4 minute intervals of progressively higher speeds on a 10* slope, starting with 1mph and going up to 9.5mph.
@Can yew knot, No heart burn, pain, or any side effects were observed. HR went back from 205 to 120 in 1:37, and then slowly went back down to 63 after 7 more minutes.
@Can yew knot, like I said, I didn't do the math lol just a messager. But I also know that your heart rate shouldn't be that high, it's not healthy for a heart to work that hard. Basketball players after 10 minutes of intense non stop playing won't be that high. If you are in shape, you have a slowly heart rate also. That's why athletes at rest will have ~60 or lower and normal people will be up in the 80s and 90s
@ToriBlack, Yea I figured that much. My HR was wicked high, but it was after a very long and strenuous exercise (much more than 10 min running back and forth on flat ground). Also, it may have been from the combination or strength and endurance, since the running was all done up hill at 9.5 mph max. Perhaps higher effort for speed and strength to power up hill?
@ToriBlack, also, it that exercise was very inconsistent with predictions. My HR was very high, seemingly unathletic, but recuperation time of less than 2 min to normal breathing and resting HR of ~63 appears to show athletic data.
@ToriBlack, anyway, my main point was just that HRs can technically go up to 200+ during extreme exercises with no side effects. However, I don't know if that's just a young-heart thing to have no side effects after such exercise.
Unless you smoke 450 kg of it
Smoking anything is still smoking. I have no objection to weed in any other form, but but any type of hot smoke is bad for your lungs.
Except for you know, getting CANCER from smoking it. Good luck with that.
It can impair your driving though
Heart attacks due to anxiety freak outs.
Inhaling anything burning is actually bad for your lungs. Much better to eat it or vape it.
It kills brain cells
I knew smoking people was possible
We get it... You smoke bud
My dad's actually allergic. Seriously, he was "exposed" once as a teen and had an anaphylactic reaction. My sister and I, of course, though that this was bull meant to keep us from trying pot. One high party and we did a lot of what teens did and when we came home, my dad reacted violently to the leftovers and we had to take rush him to the hospital. (He' s OK, by the way. It was years ago)
TL;DR: You can be allergic to pot.
@ihatesummer, i am mildly allergic
@ihatesummer, I know a cop who’s allergic, which is super useful for him now
Come to Colorado and put this to the test.
