What cannabis actually does to your brain
Chances are they would've ended up brainless morons with or without the pot. It's quite frankly not strong enough of a narcotic to destroy one's life such as you describe. It's very dependent on the user's persona. @Tadashii: Are you also for alcohol and tobacco prohibition? Those ruin more lives every year then marijuana has ever. Wow- Tadashii, pot is not meth or cocaine. Yes, its a chemical that can intoxicate and has been embraced by, and been the cause of some lazy folks, underachievers, and Grateful Dead fans not amounting to much. Pot is like anything else- tobacco, alcohol, vicodin, valium, caffeine, etc. Cannabis has great promise for any treatment that requires appetite stimulant (such as cancer, HIV, etc), and has also been found to act as an anti-inflammatory or nausea reliever, Don't just stamp marijuana "evil". Do you enjoy any caffeinated sodas, cigarettes, or the occasional alcoholic beverage? Yes I am against alcohol too and I agree that it's worse than pot.

Israeli company grows medical marijuana which doesn't get you high Situated in an undisclosed location near Tzfat, northern Israel, is a government-approved medical marijuana plantation which was founded in 2004 by a retired biology teacher. Named Tikun Olam, the plantation has created a new cannabis strain which contains very low traces of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main constituent in cannabis responsible for making people feel "stoned". By virtually eliminating THC in the new strain, Tikun Olam can now offer the drug's medicinal benefits to those patients who wish to keep a clear head. Marijuana contains over 60 constituents named cannabinoids and though THC is the most famous due to its psychoactive effects, another important constituent is cannabidiol (CBD).

Weed sequenced. No really — weed. (Credit: stock image) DNA sequencing hit a new high with the release of the Cannabis sativa genome, says Nature News.

AHAHAHAHAHA LOL thats awesome! by mrperrific Jul 24

Miss-spelling I meant >"pure THC" not >"put THC" ! ;-\ See it fried my brain ! ;-) by mirlen101 Jul 24

Hmm sounds like a plan ! ;-) That reminds me I took some Vodka soaked some high quality bud in it for a few days put the liquid in a tray let it evaporate slowly at room temp . What remained was put THC ! It looked like such a tiny amount . I thought I'll just put a little in and light up ! BAM !!! Talk about instant face to floor ! ;-O OMG ! I'll never do that again ! I had super high tolerance back then and it Kicked My ASS ! by mirlen101 Jul 24

hehe, yeah im from norway so thats what he used, first you would need like 96% moonshine, then put a 5g bud in ca 300ml liquor, store it for three weeks, shake from time to time, filter it, then mix in water to make it like 20 to 30%. and then it should work fine by mrperrific Jul 24

Yah but you don't really get anything from the booze except taste. You might with Moon Shine but you would probably just explode ! ;-O So best to have a not so great friend try it first ! Just keep a fire exstinguisher handy ! ;-) by mirlen101 Jul 24

hehe lol, yeah i heard it from a friend as well that you could do that with vodka, and it would get you both drunk and stoned, with a surprisingly good taste. would be nice to try once, too bad big liquor companies cant make this in big scale by mrperrific Jul 23

I tried that too ! Actually I soaked it in Vodka ! ;-) It wasn't bad really ! ;-) But yes age does degrade the bud for sure ;-/ But with a preservative ( maybe Vodka ! ) you might get away with it ! ;-) I could never keep it that long though ! ;-) I think a few days is my record ! ;-) And that was with all my super will power ! ;-) by mirlen101 Jul 21

dont think you could, but it would be nice if buds were like a good cognac, better with age :D by mrperrific Jul 21

Hmm 2,700-year-old pot stash ! I wonder if anyone tried smoking it ? I had some like 10 year old stuff and it was really nasty ! ;-/ by mirlen101 Jul 21
