Most drug addicts begin with marijuana but then they need a bigger buzz. Today they have a lot more video info on marijuana which shows that it is not something to smoke
Laboratory studies have shown that animals exhibit symptoms of drug withdrawal after cessation of prolonged marijuana administration. Some human studies have also demonstrated withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, stomach pain, aggression, and anxiety after cessation of oral administration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), marijuana's principal psychoactive component. Now, NIDA-supported researchers at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, and Columbia University in New York City have shown that individuals who regularly smoke marijuana experience withdrawal symptoms after they stop smoking the drug.
Studies at Columbia University in New York City have demonstrated that, in addition to aggression, marijuana smokers experience other withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, stomach pain, and increased irritability during abstinence from the drug. "These results suggest that dependence may be an important consequence of repeated daily exposure to marijuana," says NIDA.

Interesting Info per country.
In the Netherlands, with the introduction of Legal Marijuana use, Marijuana use increased as opposed to before. So you see more people with side effects, driving cars on city streets and making important decisions for the nation.
People begin with drugs either for fun, or to get away from stress for a while, and eventually this process grows and they are trapped into a lifestyle they can't control.
Looking at Europe today and all the trouble it's in, one has to think that if every one does drugs there, then what kind of decision making goes on in their governments and if we in fact in North America should follow their example.
They say America is bad but many people are still conservative here and do not believe in European Liberal standards and it seems for good reason.People in North America believe in the work ethic and God.
Vancouver is a great place for drug people to come to cause the weather is mild and pot can be grown everywhere. This is Hastings street but it is not uncommon to walk in any neighborhood and see pot plants in peoples gazebos for personal use.
It's not uncommon to see drug busts.
I myself had this heavy marijuana smell in my back yard and it offended me so I reported it thinking someone was smoking it but I had to breath it in my back yard.
The result was my neighbor losing his house when the police came with their drug dogs, (including my yard). The house was not next door but three houses away. They were growing drugs in their basement and the ventilation was blowing a heavy smell into my yard.
Their business affected my business and many other peoples business when they sold it to our kids. Parents have to be able to say no and control kids but that's hard to do if your neighbor sells them pot and tells every one you do not own your kids.
Well it certainly becomes your problem when they get into trouble though. lol
Being a vigilant stay at home Mother, I was able to somewhat clean up my area of living but adults do drugs themselves so this doesn't make you a very popular person to object.
In the mean time schools have problems controlling kids .During school hours, they are responsible for them and when a kid gets upset and runs out of the school, teachers and principals have to chase them around till they catch them, instead of spending our tax money for things like teaching. Kids doing drugs, even marijuana, cause it's available in their home,do not study. Then parents make more demands for special ed but no one cares why these kids turn out the way they do. They just throw everything on the tax payer.
Well the tax payer can't afford liberalism any more. There are no jobs here. It's all in China. So unless China wants to buy our pot............. ? lol
Everything being dopey and fun means as taxpayers,we waste our money on young people who have no chance in the world to succeed in life and pull every one else around them down.
You see them lying around in the middle of the streets like garbage bags, off of King George in Surrey.
You see women prostitutes with probable Venereal diseases using facilities in McDonalds to shoot up and leave needles behind. These are places your child could have a part time job in
and be exposed to the dangers associated with drugs and prostitution. If your child is nice they come and offer them a job or rape them lol
Before you know it, you lost your kid to drugs and a street life.
It depends on what you want but as an adult I always conducted my life so that my children were not exposed to bad things. They should not grow thinking that it is OK to do most of the things liberalism says is ok.
They should not be taught this in elementary school, so that by the time they are 1o- 12 years of age, they become little people living the life of an old grown up.
I mean, we take away dreams from them by discouraging things like God and Santa Claus and the Easter bunny and replace it with political liberalism they have no business knowing at their age.
I think not.
An adult is responsible for the care of its youth because youth is the future of man's survival.
Raising children should be taken seriously.
If no one cares then why should anyone else care
We pay taxes to promote constructive societies.
If we do not want constructive societies, there is no need to pay taxes.
Have a great day:)
