Yea I am sure the tens of billions spent annually to institutions to treat marijuana addiction from the Drug Control Policy budget has nothing to do with your stance. Or your flat out lies/spin "It starts out mild and gradually gets worse until they have a full blown psychotic episode" Its people like you that cause these little brains to psychosomatically freak out.

It causes neurogenesis in the hippocampus when it is lacking density or size- of course it makes some people paranoid, the interaction from the amydala is the route of exercising this section into growing. None of the half a dozen stress hormones released are destructive either. You should know that anyone who suffers stress has a damaged hippocampus- longterm use paranoia is extremely rare... I wonder why....

Search youtube for Dr. Lester Grinspoon- he is a harvard professor who has spent many years on this subject. His ruling is that marijuana can increase your heart rate the same amount as jogging up a flight of stairs- Infact that is so harmless moving your bowels is 40x more dangerous.

Cannabinoids (the active chemicals) protects from ischemia (heart attack and stroke), it also reverses artery hardening by blocking TNF and ROS.

You should come to work with me (psych hospital)! We get people in everyday who smoke weed and freak out . It starts out mild and gradually gets worse until they have a full blown psychotic episode, my advice, STOP NOW or else you run the risk of " visiting" a place i assure you, you DON'T want to be in!
