The above poster (duesh or whatever the name is) is lying to you. Marijuana is NOT a dangerous drug AT ALL. It doesn't give you cancer, it doesn't lead you into doing other drugs (it is not a gateway drug), and it doesn't even do all that neurobehavorial-bull that duesh is writing about. I know people who have smoked since about your age (15 right?) and are about to get thier DOCTORATE's; one of them received DOUBLE MASTER's. I write music on a VERY regular basis, I have hiked 15 times in the last 2 weeks, have a steady job, and am HORNIER THAN EVER. So don't believe what the above poster wrote and please do as much research as you can on the subject. The internet is great for that. Just always find different sources to compare your findings and you'll be able to tell who is lying to you and who isn't... right Deush? Look for a movie called 'The Union'. A LOT of great info on marijuana there. But, like i wrote earlier... ALWAYS DO MORE RESEARCH.

smoking anything is bad because of smoke inhalation but smoking weed(cannibus) does not kill brain cells some scientists say or just dont kill them as fast as smoking tobacco but if you use a verbilizer the drug it is just medical cannibus so point is dont smoke at all and you wouldnt have a heart attack right afterwards also cannibus does less damage then tobacco there is a graph that shows it

weed causes your heart to beat slower. In turn ur heart would compensate by beating stronger, this explains ur palpitations. Ur heart is not beating faster, it beats stronger. Drowsiness is a common side effect of Cannabis; fainting, on the other hand, is less common. You wouldn't have a heart attack caused by smoking weed. I would advice you to stop smoking weed, this is a dangerous drug. Chronic marijuana users are at increased risk for neurobehavioural difficulties. Heavy marijuana use may trigger "amotivational syndrome",this means you may become lethargic. would lack interest in work, relationships, personal health or even sex. though stopping is hard because of withdrawal symptoms, it is doable.
