In response to Stan White of Dillon, Colo., Pot Smoking Capital of the USA. Smoking marijuana has been proven to damage social life, ruin job opportunities, give anger issues, decrease motor skills and create vehicle accidents, increased heart rate, disorientation, lack of coordination, depression, going to sleep and not waking up on time and then feeling tired.
Long-time joint smokers often suffer from bronchitis and inflammation of the respiratory tract. Smoking marijuana in heavy use can cause brain abnormalities. Taking the medicinal ingredients (THC) from marijuana and putting it in pill form or oil will aid the medical needs just like smoking it and it will not disrupt nerve cells in the brain like smoking does.
Do you really want to chance harming our kids with this ridiculous idea of smoking marijuana for medical reasons? Go down this road and it will give the green light to our kids now and in the future.
