The Surgeon General has the answer for that:Among the known or suspected chronic effects of marijuana are:
short-term memory impairment and slowness of learning.
impaired lung function similar to that found in cigarette smokers. Indications are that more serious effects, such as cancer and other lung disease, follow extended use.
decreased sperm count and sperm motility.
interference with ovulation and pre-natal development.
impaired immune response.
possible adverse effects on heart function.
by-products of marijuana remaining in body fat for several weeks, with unknown consequences. The storage of these by-products increases the possiblilties for chronic, as well as residual, effects on performance, even after the acute reaction to the drug has worn off. Of special concern are the long-term developmental effects in children and adolescents, who are particularly vulnerable to the drug's behavioral and psychological effects. The "amotivational syndrome," characterized by a pattern of energy loss, diminished school performance, harmed parental relationships, and other behavorial disruptions, has been associated with prolonged marijuana use by young persons.
Go ahead, list all the ways pot is bad, from every source you can find. it still won't be more dangerous than beer or peanuts.
And, because your reading comprehension is so, so poor, I'll explain this to you as plainly as possible: I am not pissed off at republicans because Obama is busting pot dealers. I am amused at the transparency of the Republicans blatant hypocrisy regarding states rights.
