Health Question & Answer

I've heard that prolonged smoking of marijuana can lead to a slowing down of mental capacity. At least that's what the doctors claim. And I also heard that smoking one joint is like smoking 4-5 cigarettes at once, because it's so harsh.

You can eat it too, but I've never tried it that way. I wonder if it still destroys brain cells if you eat it instead.?

But I'm wondering if that has to do with the purity and the different types of reefer out there. The ones that are given to sick people are actually tightly controlled and they look like cigarettes. I saw this documentary on HBO and they were showing the few patients who actually were permitted to get medical marijuana, before the government (USA) shut it down. Now, I think it's ok for certain states to give it out, like here in Calif, but I hear that they get raided because they aren't licensed(.?) Anyway, it's complicated.

The reason I don't like smoking the chronic is because I eat like there's no tomorrow when I'm high. And that's NO GOOD! I'd would be as big as a house if I continued to smoke pot! That's the only side-effect that I don't like about it. Otherwise, I would be a total pot head, LOL.=)
