It depends on what kind of people your parents are. My parents think that it is horrible although they do beleive in its medicinal purposes, but they would still kill me for ever using it. People who smoke pot are typically stereotyped, placed in a group where EVERYONE thinks that smoking pot means you are screwing up your life and lazy and what not, I am sure you know. I know that it isnt bad, it doesnt make you lazy, and I know someone who uses it just for fun. They did fine in school, did sports, and was an all around great guy, not the stereotypical “pot-head”. I don’t think that it is really possible to convince people who are dead set on thinking that it is bad, that it really isnt. Some people have spent such a long time beleiving one thing that it is hard to change their minds to think otherwise. If you are going to try? I would say good luck.
you are obviously very young! You think that life is great! You feel that life is never going to change! Things are always going to peachy! Grow UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pot is ok but you need to finish school, get a degree, get a life, and settle down…… then and ONLY THEN~ will POT be OK! Peace see you ya in 5-10.
there is no valid reason….POT is bad…!!!!!
ok 1 pot is bad 2 ur to young to even start ruining ur life i mean what r u gonna do in 5 yrs. when ur always smoking and u have no money u have kids and a wife? u don’t know what ur gonna do b/c u haven’t thought that far ahead have u? listen to ur parents just b/c u can’t always agree w/ everything they say doesn’t mean ur always right…now go and sleep on it ok? holla l8er
I personally can’t stand pot, but in response to your question, here is a link to some pros and cons. there’s lots more info out there if you search for it.
PS if you’re concerned about what your parents think about it, you are probably to young to smoke it at all responsibly.
Good luck with that. Most parents are set in their ways, because most of them had to go through the time of all the Drugs are Bad campaigns. It’s been engraved into their minds.
And to those of you who are claiming “pot is bad”, please take the time to actually educate yourself and look up everything you can about it. Look up how it isn’t directly proven to give lung cancer like cigarettes can cause, look up how it’s used for a lot of medical reasons, look up how it is actually not proven to kill brain cells, etc.
Then come back and tell me “pot is bad.”
well as a 15yr old smoker of weed and no my parents are not ok with it but i did tell my mom my reasoning behind my use and she seemed to lighten up about it although she dose not permit it in her house i still do it but they do not ever see my pipes or weed i dont smoke in my house i respect that they do not like it but that still dose not seem to phase them because they still drug test me and i fail and get punished but you have to decide is it worth the punishment you might get? I do because i have many medical problems that it solves but still your parents are probably not goin to give you the green light but if you like it as much as I do then you will know what you have to do.
Wow. It’s amazing how daft and ignorant people are these days…This is to “bo_go_200″: I am 15 years old, I smoke cannabis about 2-5 times a week depending on how much I have, and smoking cannabis hasn’t affected me in any negative ways whatsoever. I’m currently about to be a sophomore in high school, I’m on the honor-roll with a 4.3 GPA and I plan on getting a bachelors degree with a double major consisting of pharmacology and virology at Texas Tech University. After that, I plan on finishing my Masters degree and PhD at Stanford University or anywhere else in California. After I finish my PhD, I plan on opening a pharmacy/medical marijuana dispensary in California while doing independent research on various diseases and the effects of THC compared to other pharmaceuticals on said diseases. Also, you have the spelling and grammar of a 10 year old, and sound very immature. Why don’t you **** off with the stereotypes and go get a GED?
holdenfrie your the man **** off bo go 200
I’m tired of these posts about how terrible pot is for you. It’s just like people hypnotized by the government with dare ads and the ad council…. always pointing out the bad things in stuff that is absolutely harmless. I’d like to say i get a’s, b’s and c’s in school and i smoke on a regular basis. i got a job, i dont ever steal money for pot, and i set aside some money for my college fund. i’m in 8th grade. marijuana prohibition destroys lives, marijuana doesnt. it’s fine in moderation man, just be responsible. feel free to show your parents this post if you will, if that will convince them. if they dont, then their just worried about if you were to get caught. anything bigger than a dime is a felony, so i can understand that. keep trying with your parents, show them this post, and BE RESPONSIBLE when it comes to pot, ciggarettes, alcohol, food, anything.
i> small>(email removed) /small> /i> is my email if you or your parents have questions.
its not good to smoke it when your brain is developing, but as long as you put school and your responsibilities first there is nothing wrong with enjoying some good wholesome reefers every now and then. as long as your doing fine in school what can your parents say to you if you get caught. And its all about learning to be careful Ive been smoking since tenth grade and im a sophmore in college now and ive never been caught. You just have to understand that its not really that important its just something fun to do in your spare time you put your responsibilities first you know.
my mom and my grandma are the same way, but ive accepted the fact that im not gunna be able to convince them. i like how the person at the top said seeing them as stereotypical cuz im not lazy i still do stuff im pretty smart but i havent been the smartest one in the bunch since i waz born haha. i basically just do it fer fun too and my life iz fine. hope this helped(:
I’m 17 and have been smoking since I was 13, started doing it heavily 2 years ago, though. My dad was really against it, until I got him to smoke with me once, now my dad and I smoke up all the time. My mom is still really anti-weed though.
**** you peices of **** who say pot is bad i have a ******* 3.5 gpa and im a high school sophomore, i can probably do much better in life than most of you ignorant bigot *****.
pot is good, it makes me see things i normally dont see, past the veil that is blind to our sober minds that leads to the inner conciense, it made me find love in science, math, and art. ive really discovered my inner self and purpose. ive questioned god since i was four but that is in invalid because he is not in any dimension of though real in any way.
none of you dumbfucked ignorant scumbags can keep me down, no matter what you say.
dont punish your children, youd **** their lives up especially if they are weak minded to you possible extreme reaction.
it is ok to worry about them but do not punish it, simply respect this as long as it gives them purpose (not a blind purpose) and truly lets them find happiness.
cannabis is healthy, all arguments can be proven invalid.
let the watch the union. Its a documentary about why marijuanna is illegal in the first place. When my parents caught e smoking i showed it to them. It helped alot with lessening their ignorance about weed. Heres a link
just do like me.
get your own place and let your parrents see for themself that you actually mannage to hold your job, place and (in my case gf) .
if you are open from the start and say : i smoke cannabis.
they are most likey to say : oh no you dont. not as long as you live here!
becouse parrents are some strange creatures.
they just want what’s good for you .
if you move out keep smoking, and your parrents see you are doing fine, then maby thy will acnowledge you for who you are! :D
atleast that’s what my parrents did, and i’m living in norway. :O
REMEMBER ! as long as you are living at your parrents place they can do whatever they want. and their words are final.
wheny you move out. you can do whatever you want. like smoking. jaaay problem solved.
and if you aint old enoufh to move out, then you shouldnt be smoking.
remember the brain is evolving to the mid 20’s and if you start smoking before that you can rlly **** it up. *(just like alcohol) it’s not likley it’s gonna happen but it might.
seriously be carefull if you’re underage.
Hey my smelled pot smoke in my room after i smoked out and left fir school in the morning what should i say to him to make him under stand how it helps you stay focused and more awake
