I want to try marijuana

I'm just so curious. I'm a minor, and I know pot's not that bad for you (of course it is a little, it's smoke). I dunno. I'm thinking about it a lot, and I don't see it as that big of a deal. Tell me what you think?

Edit: I don't want to try it to be cool er anything. I just want to know what it feels like. I also don't ever want to try hardcore drugs (especially meth [worst one in my opinion]).

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Please do it when you're older.

    Marijuana is a relatively harmless drug for a fully functioning and mentally healthy adult, who does not have the genetic potential to develop mental illnesses. These are the people you see who go to work, have successful relationships and hobbies, and occassionally enjoy some weed after the kids have gone to bed, or maybe on a weekend away with friends or their partner. They are the people who really don't get what the big fuss is about weed, and don't believe that it causes any of the harm that it does, because they never see that. For them and their friends, smoking weed hasn't had any sort of negative impact on their lives and they could take it or leave it.

    People who use marijuana from a young age can suffer permanent damage to their brain. It affects development. Hence why it's safer to wait until your brain is fully developed, which doesn't happen until sometime in your 20s. These younger people suffer in other ways, too - they are less likely to succeed as they get older because they spend their free time smoking weed, so they don't have as many skills and hobbies, it can affect social development and stunt the normal development process that allows you to go on and develop successful relationships, and it can make people generally less ambitious and less likely to do well at school.

    If there is any history of serious mental illness in your family then don't go there.


    Now, someone will come along in a minute and say that they have been smoking weed since they were a little one and it's done them no harm, and that I'm just scaremongering. Those people are exceptions to the rule. I know this because I am one of them. I smoked weed almost every day from age 14 until my mid 20s. I managed to get a degree in a tough field and develop a successful career, and marry a good man, and develop hobbies and interests. I lost all interest in weed once I decided I wanted to have children so it wasn't a big deal for me to stop. So yes, exceptions do exist. But I can't help but wonder what more I could have been if I hadn't been cooking my brain and wasting so much time every day for those important and formative years. I have seen so many people dwindle away into themselves because of weed.

    Wait until you're a bit older and you've got your shit together and have achieved some things. Then if you want to try it, go for it.

  • Weed is good, when you smoke it occasionally. I prefer sativa (more energetic models of weed). Try vaporizer, if you want to smoke as healthy as possible.

  • Get someone to regulate you and keep you away from the drug after the first try. Idk how addictive it might be but I doubt you want an addiction that'll cost you a fortune and hurt your health. I would also recommend trying it as an adult, not a minor.

  • I'd say the best answer would be "Go for it, but...". There are a few things you need to make sure you know before trying it. You might know all these anyway and think they're obvious so this might sound a little preachy, but just in case I'll mention them here anyway:

    . If you get caught, it could ruin your future
    . You may become addicted. There's a smaller chance of becoming addicted to it than most other drugs, inclucding alcohol, but there's still a chance
    . It's not regulated, so there could be traces of dangerous chemicals in it. So try to get it from someone reputable, preferably someone who grows it themselves
    . The first time you try it you could get so high you won't be able to make your way home safely, so you should try it at home until you know your limits
    . Not all strains of marijuana are the same, so you should also only experiment with new strains if you're at home or in a place you can stay for a while

  • don't do it alone, do it with someone you can trust and is wise with taking those stuff so you don't drift and end up with problems.

  • How minor are we talking? There’s a difference between 13 and 17.

    Whatever you decide to do, make sure you’re in a safe environment and be careful.

  • Well theres worse drugs you can take. However I would encourage you not to do it, especially if you're a minor.

  • You do you. It's all good so long as you don't become one of those more boring stoners who act like smoking weed is the most interesting thing about them

    • Id almost say to do shrooms before weed. The problem with weed is it makes 99% of people who smoke it regularly lazy. And alot of them end up settling for low paying jobs because they don't wanna have to drug test or work their way up

      • Damn. Yeah maybe I'll do that instead. I'd just be scared of taking the wrong ones or too much.

        • Had friends that make really bad wages and Id try to get them a job at my company and the first question will always be "do they drug test"

    • Go for it, but read a lot before you try it and do it with someone you really like. With good vibes. There are also great Spotify playlists for this (look for something like Magic mushrooms). Also it’s important to take the right amount of shrooms, so look for dosage calculator based on your weight.

  • imo weed is a waste of money. I tried it because it's my life principle to always try something before saying its bad, and I'm glad my one and only weed experience was underwhelming. If your just bored then just play minecraft or some shit. Once your older your probably gonna be over the whole weed thing. Theres no point, if you develop a dependancy to it, thats a lot of money down the drain.
