I DO want to gain weight and be healthy, however you obviously know nothing of the statistics among crack, alcohol, cigarettes, and weed…cigarettes are responsible for over 400,000 deaths in the U.S each year. 75,000 deaths are alcohol-related. Marijuana causes approximately…no wait, exactly ZERO deaths a year, wait…I meant EVER. It hasn’t even been proven to cause any type of health hazard including lung disease and heart disease.
A buddy of mine had two of his close neighbors die last June on the same night smoking pot. I have seen what drugs do to people, what it turns them into, and how it affects their lives, and it is a road I personally do not want to go down, let alone see other people go down. It is not only a waste of time and money, it is unhealthy; and, in addition to all that, it is down right gross. Look at how many elite athletes do drugs, it is less than 1/10 of 1%. What the majority of them have in common is self-respect.
Gain self respect, and, as phony as this sounds, your heart will guide you,
I really do appreciate your input and what you have to say.
I don’t know if you were trying to link your friend’s neighbor’s death to pot but…sorry to say that pot isn’t what killed him, unless it was laced with coke or some other deadly drug. Maybe it could impair lung capacity over long periods of time but there is no such thing as ODing on pot and dying. The worst that could happen if you smoked the dankest of the dank is passing out and getting the best night’s sleep of your life.
