Studys have shown that Quitting smoking marijuana is easier than quitting cigarettes or even quitting drinking.
Well when I was a youth I was a victim of the drug war. Caught smoking a bowl (of schwag at that. Ugh. The b@stard cops were actually laughing at how crappy it was) - oh my!
So it was one of thise CWOF-Pass a drug test-no conviction-expungement deals. Quitting smoking marijuana for the drug test was as easy as not ordering a slice of pizza. So what? There wasn't the slightest craving, just a minor annoyance at having to play their game.
I also smoked cigarettes heavily for five years. Quit cold turkey and never looked back. Now that is an addiction. Cravings, constant whispers in your mind - hey, who are they to tell you you can't smoke (when did myself become "they"?), it's only a cigarette, it's only a few years off your life, so what you'll die anyway - on and on. Of course, all you have to do is simply not tell your hand to pick up a cig. Every 1.24 seconds. But still.
The worst bit, of course, was the inability to stay asleep. Every 30 to 40 minutes I would fall asleep at night and begin dreaming. In each in every dream, I would invariably be offered a cigarette, give in, and have it. I'd wake up, throat sore, mouth salvating, and literally sucking the pillow into my mouth. Lasted 2 to 3 weeks. Good thing I picked a vacation to stop.
So yeah...if something that does that is legal, I can't see any reason why pot shouldn't be.
And I'm not even mentioning the hundreds of thousands of people who die from cigarettes every year. WWII-grade casualties. Oh oops there I go.
You do know that chronic, even casual weed smokers can die from emphysema.
I was totally unaware of that. You do realize that Chronic,even casual drinkers can die from kidney failure. Right
