What age is ok to start using weed?

What age do you think it’s OK to start smoking weed? I for one started using at the age of 18 and I think I am pretty lucky to start at a reasonable age.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I say keep away - as there really are no short term and mostly long term benefits. Believe me - weed can be a gateway to other drugs as you will find yourself having to purchase your weed from others using more potent drugs etc, there are numerous - countless opportunities that can and will arise. Life experience: at 24 years of age I smoked marijuana the first time, 15 years later opiates became my drug of NEED, then later Heroin as opiate pills became impossible to get. I believe the progression from weed use (12 yrs) to HMO doctors prescribing 300 x 10mg opiates per month led to me to Heroin use and methamphetamine use.

    Understand this, I was well on my way to having a wonderful life, then as stress or whatever filled my life so did the use of more stimulating drugs, that it is my opinion - I smoked weed to alleviate whatever it was that bothered me, then later I made the excuse to use opiates (because some doctor said it was okay) which is bullshit, it was my decision. It all boils down to this.
    People can say what they want, but I am telling you from experience.
    Playing with fire - taking risks that involve drugs that change your behavior is extremely dangerous, and incredibly stupid. I was at one time a RN working at a mental health facility in Las Vegas. What I witnessed - young kids suffering from severe psychosis, caused by mariuana - was horrible. Seeing children ages from the age of 11 coming to the facilty restrained is heart breaking. ALL DAY LONG AND EVERY DAY - simply by smoking WEED.
    Get your shit together

  • Just dont do it mate, or do it once you're making good money.

  • Later is better because it affects brain development. Once you're an adult the majority of changes it produces are completely reversible if you abstain, but this is not true of younger people. Sadly at 18 your brain is still developing so it will be having an effect. It's all a bit of a gamble really. I smoked a shit tonne of it in my early 20s and it doesn't seem to have done me any damage but who knows? Maybe I stopped myself from becoming the next Einstein lol. We'll never know

  • I started as a freshman in college, I'm glad I did. I feel like if I started drinking, smoking, and experimenting with other shit in high school, I would've became a total wastoid

  • Im not sure what the law should be as I do believe people should have the right to do the wrong thing sometimes, but if it were my kid id prefer them to not smoke weed until like 21- 25 if they wanted to

    • I think it should be illegal because weed makes poeple get addicted and then they need to buy more, so they get caught in a trap basically. The only good it really does is makes people money, the drug itself just fucks people up, or at best does nothing. People should not make money selling goods that do such harm to the consumers, I think it's unethical.

      • I believe its much more nuanced than that, many more grey zones, not so black and white. don't really feel like being the lawyer for the case though and arguing about it, but Id recommend reading more about it, i see a lot of good points to be made on both sides of the isle illegal -vs legal.

        • Not black and white possibly, but still I think overall society is worse with weed legal. Do we agree on that mate? I know it affects everyone different and all that.

  • I started at 14, underage is not that bad juste be careful because too much can cause you brain damage. I smoke it about once in a month and I’m ok! If you have schizophrenia in your family don’t risk it.

  • I've been smoking since I was 14. Back then the weed was "midgrade" now it's fucking hightest. So just be careful. I've always said that for my kids, they can smoke pot as long they have good grades. But if they get caught, they're fucked. Lol.
