I'm assuming you're talking about Carbon Monoxide inhalation? Carbon Monoxide on it's own acts by binding to hemoglobin to prevent oxygen from doing the same. Oxygen deficiency can kill brain cells, however I'd hazard a guess that it's impossible to smoke enough weed to inhale enough CO to cause enough oxygen deficiency to cause brain cell damage.

Remember that cells are constantly dying and bring replaced anyway. There are several dangers to chronic weed smoking, dead brain cells isn't one of them. That was invented by reefer madness!

As a former chronic smoker, the only negative thing I would say about weed is that it DEFINATELY ZAPPS MOTIVATION. Anybody that tells you different is out to lunch, IMHO.

I'll argue this. I know plenty of people who get high as fuck and then look like the most motivated person you've ever met. The trick is, they're doing something they WANT to be doing. Now, if you're about to do something you DO NOT want to do, then yeah, getting high will sap what little motivation you had to do it. Being high just provides an excuse to be a slacker and put off something that you don't really want to do anyway.

Not true!

When they had ad campaigns on tv about Weed being bad, they took monkeys, strapped them to chairs, hooked masks with a smoker on the other end and smoked the monkeys to death, like literally killed the monkeys with to much pot.....

I turned out the monkeys died because lack of oxygen, go figure....

Depends on the person....depends on the weed. Smoke a heavy indica and most likely you'll want to sleep. Smoke a cerebral sativa and its a whole different dealio.

IMO the biggest benefit of this new law (and surprised no-one's mentioned it) is quality control. No more shit laced with something unknown.

Fair enough... I should have said "it's likely impossible for a person smoking weed to inhale enough smoke to suffer from oxygen deprivation to the brain" - without having a mask strapped to their face pumping in a constant supply of smoke!

Yeah, I used to smoke sativa and play guitar. It was wild how much I could focus... I wrote my college entrance exams after smoking a pinner of sativa. Got 120/120 on the math portion, and 117/120 on the English. When I went in to get my marks they said they've seen university grads that haven't scored that high... Not saying the pot helped, but it certainly didn't hinder.

Back when I used to smoke on a regular basis we would work on a car, play music, etc. while mildly stoned.

And that's the biggest reason I stopped. I used to always taste my weed when I bought it. I could tell if it had been laced with something, sometimes it tasted like formaldehyde or drain-o... I figured that was something I didn't need to take the chance of smoking. Since then I've met some people that have medical licences to grow themselves, so I'll occasionally have some homegrown these days, but I'm a 5 time a year smoker now... what were we talking about?
