Actual facts about weed - December 27th 2012, 10:20 PM

Could someone send me a link which states actual facts about weed? By that I mean, scientific. I don't want a site which states weed is evil and I don't want a site which wants to legalise it and therefore doesn't state any health risks.

I've just been smoking a bit lately and I'd like to know the legit facts.

This is something that I would suggest you google for yourself. If you know what to look for it should be pretty easy to find all the information you need.
To get you started I found this site which seems pretty unbiased and fairly accurate.

Thanks I just didn't know what to believe in. On some websites they were saying that weed was the devil's substance and on others they were saying it wasn't very harmful.

I was more worried about the mental health problems it may cause. It doesn't seem to be as harmful as I thought.

I never really get "smashed" just a little bit stoned.

The only negative studies so far have been those on women who smoke while they are pregnant. Children born to women who smoke during their pregnancy often have much lower IQs. Which can cause problems for the children when they reach school level.

They are not as dangerous as cigarettes, but they do posses the ability to cause lung problems as you are still breathing in smoke. Overall... it comes down to whether or not it is legal in your area.

I can email you some scientific journal articles if you'd like.
