It can have adverse psychological affects. Especially in chronic users. I can attest to this.

Define adverse psychological affects, because I am a chronic user and I'm fine.

Define adverse psychological affects, because I am a chronic user and I'm fine.

Don't be obtuse. Not every chronic tobacco user gets lung cancer, just like not every chronic marijuana user is going to experience psychological affects.

Chronic marijuana use has been associated with anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and depression.

According to this study, THC may trigger psychosis by interfering with the brain's ability to distinguish between important and unimportant stimuli that constantly flood the various regions in the brain.

I personally, developed an anxiety disorder, (whether or not it was created by marijuana I have no way of proving) and would have massive panic attacks at least once a day, if not multiple times a day.

One thing that triggered my attacks was getting high. I had attacks while not high, but literally every time I would smoke I would have one. I started to mentally associate the feeling of dying (if you've ever had a real panic attack you know what I'm talking about) with the feeling of getting high from pot.

I subsequently haven't smoked pot for about 5 years, and I haven't had any attacks in about 3 years.

I don't necessarily believe that smoking weed caused my disorder, but it sure as fug didn't help it. I'm to the point now that my disorder has abated that I'm thinking about smoking again, because I used to really enjoy it. Make no mistake though - I was not your average user. I have three marijuana related felony convictions with 19 total felony charges. I used to smoke all day every day. I'm not some uninformed person on this topic.

I hear my friends complain about the same stuff all the time, being too anxious or feeling paranoid. You can call that 'negative' if you want but to me it's just a medication having a certain effect one a certain person, just like if I take some adderall I'll feel that way.

I've never had any problems in my entire life, and I'm sorry that happened to you and you aren't able to enjoy the beautiful flower anymore, but when I mean negative I'm talking about something equivalent to the side effects of alcohol. I can't stand when some hick that probably drinks mass amounts of alcohol blurts something out like "That mary jew anna causes lung cancer worse than cigarettes!"

I'm sure as someone who use to smoke, you understand this frustration...

You clearly don't understand how serious an acute anxiety disorder can be. It's almost debilitative, hardly something to shrug off as "being too anxious or feeling paranoid".

Having a real panic attack feels like you're fuging dying. It's very similar to the feeling of a heart attack.

That said, I'm pro marijuana, don't get it twisted. But don't act like there's no possible ill effects of it's use.

If nothing is done to BWood for making personal attacks then I guess it's still ok to do it.

I just got banned dude I haven't done anything wrong, stop being so sensitive because I called you out for making such a silly remark.

A. Please learn how to quote properly dude...

B. Please stop turning this into a tinderbox discussion, you're obviously out of place in this topic.

C. Don't complain about being called ignorant when you make such ridiculous statements such as "marijuana is more caner causing than tobacco."

Haha! Learn how to spell first, "caner causing" your too funny, bottom line is Zod stated no more personal attacks and you did, now go away you silly guy.

OMG I'm so illiterate! I forgot the c in cancer! I totally thought it was spelled "caner". Silly me!!1

You aren't even going to say anything about that ignorant remark, are you?
