I'd say the weed helps make it matter less that i'm hanging out alone, and have barely done anything in the last 6 months. Never used to smoke regularly before this but I do now.

100% agree with you. Humans (not just the young) need social interaction and hugs, especially in these times. As I said on the coronavirus thread, you cannot keep people cooped up forever until a vaccine is found. People need to go out and buy more munchies

Since it is one of the more common symptoms, I try to test my sense of taste frequently, and have put on a few pounds as a result.

Yep, agreed but that is what some people appear to wish for.

About 40 years ago I heard that someone I know used to be an opium addict when he was a teenager, and I asked him what that was like, and he said "I used to spend a lot of time in my room."

Hope so.

I'm voting in AZ next month and legalization is on the ballot - Prop 207. I will be voting in favor. Any downside associated with a potential 'danger' is far outweighed by the societal cost of it being illegal.

I was probably stoned a good deal of the time from age 16 through 22, then got totally bored with it. At 61, I'm in the mood for a rerun!

Cannabis is dangerous, but generally less so than plenty of legal things (Alcohol I'm looking at you!!) - my point would be that if used sensibly and properly regulated (not that I'm keen on regulation, but kids shouldn't be buying unknown strength strains off blokes on street corners) it poses no more of a risk than me enjoying a couple of glasses of whisky on a saturday afternoon, whilst almost certainly being healthier.

It can and is abused, you just see about it more per case due to the media, the controversy and when illegal. proportionately more of those at the fringes of society will try it and use it, often they have addictive personalities or other issues meaning no matter what they do, they will do it to the extreme (Hence why plenty of ex drug users become great ultra marathon runners etc, and vice versa why the ultra successful often become the ultra addicted).

On the Isle of Bute a teenage cannabis user was refused further credit to buy cannabis from his regular dealer. He revenged himself on the dealer by abducting, raping and murdering the dealer's 7-year-old daughter. i will say no more.

Obviously the kid was a lunatic, nothing to do with Cannabis!. A ludicrous example. How about the thousands of alcohol abusers that maim and murder while under the influence - or don't they count in your book? Before you assume anything, no I don't partake.. never have, never will, it's not my thing (I'd rather have a nice glass of bac noir - and no, I don't abuse that either).

Far better to have it legalised than relying on dodgy dealers who may have cut it with who knows what.

As above, I don't think Cannabis or the inability to get Cannabis was the sole cause of this murder. The murderer was someone with extreme personality disorders, had talked about killing people previously, was actually drunk when he carried out the killing (Well he'd downed a bottle of echo falls and a bottle of MD2020 according to the papers).

I also believe he had smoked cannabis from a young age, which comes back to my point about regulation.

Abusers will also abuse a substance whether it be legal or not, likewise those into substance abuse will find another substance if the one they are accustomed to is unavailable. The only people really harmed by prohibition are a) responsible users and b) the taxman (not that I like being taxed, but if a tax on legalised drugs was used to pay to help the problems of those with substance abuse issues - it would get rid of the largely untrue connotations of " wasting my tax money on junkies" comment, but also either improve quality of treatment or free up tax money to be spent elsewhere).

I'm not a user, not that it may or may not be my thing, but I'm currently in a country where it is illegal, if i got caught i would lose my job as well as potentially lose my shot at emigrating.

Alcohol causes a lot of problems. Anyone who denies that, is just lying to themselves, and others.
