Pot 'can lead to harder drugs'
The long-running debate over the dangers of cannabis will be reignited by a study that challenges the idea that experimenting with the drug is harmless and does not lead to further drug use.

Prof Yasmin Hurd, Dr Sabrina Spano and Dr Maria Ellgren, working at the Karolinksa Institute, in Sweden, have demonstrated that cannabis can enhance future sensitivity to heroin.

Studying events in the brain of adolescent rats after cannabis exposure, they found that the drug affects the brain's natural chemicals, called endogenous opioids. The chemicals are known to play a role in heightening positive emotions and creating a sense of reward. ...

Pot can lead to the use of harder drugs-like the liver destroying Tylenol.

Hi Neil,
Yes, maybe it's time for the English equivalent of the French Academy. .

More junk science and refer madness prop. The durg culture brings on the experimentation, not some magic lure caused by cannibus.

There are plenty of reasons not to smoke pot, but I fail to see how spreading hysteria over effects it does not have helps the argument not to use it.

An English equivalent to Académie Française? This must be a hoax.

The Council for English Language Orthodoxy(CELO, like cello) now also adds "pot"(along with "gay") to words needing reformation and return to historic and orthodox meaning. The current use of pot and gay as they are now used are heretical...both in words and actions. I cook food in a pot when I have a festive and gay ole time .

Brother Ho,

It's hard for me to pray for you because I don't know who you are, but keep praying for your brother.

As a Christian it is so hard seeing others who are still under the grip of sin. It's like being freed from prison ourselves, yet knowing that our loved ones are still in there with no sign of being set free. We as Christians can feel so useless to help such people. Sometimes all we can do is pray, yet praying is the best thing that we could ever do.

Did you read the 6/29 S.A. article: Alarming Rise in Child Cannibis use? Whatever medicinal purposes it may have, I can gaurantee you that alternatives could be identified to meet the same need, and may already be available. It's a smoke screen - excuse the pun. You're playing with fire to legalize it. I smoked it too & didn't get hooked, but it opened me up to many other drugs for experimentation, which is the case for most who would be attracted to it. It's not a myth - I saw it in the lives of many around me. Maybe your one of the few exceptions to the rule. Good for you - but think of what's best for others and society as a whole!

I believe that pot, like alcohol, is dangerous to a person who has an addictive personality, the problem is it's hard to find out what it will do to you as an individual until you try it, which if you have an addictive personality will be too late. My biggest problems with pot are these; should never try it under age 21 because it is a fact that it causes brain damage to those who have completed developing. That's not up for debate. 2. some can become addicted, and using around them only hurts them more with temptation and putting their lives in jeapardy 3. it is still illegal for the most part, the effects of pot are only marginally "better" than alcolhol, which is legal and won't land you in jail, or more than likely with a large fine to pay. 4. I don't beleieve pot will lead to stronger drugs for everyone, I think that is a myth, but if one is under the influence of pot at a party or what not, they are easier to persuade in to riskier drugs or sexual behavior. To sum up I did inhale and did not get hooked, I'm not proud of it, but it's true. I support legalization, yet I have lttle or no desire to engage in it myself. I would just like to see the medicinal pain relief benefits and free up a little jail space.

Don't let anyone tell you it's harmless. My brother started smoking it about 12 years old and became very addicted. People have different reactions, just as with alchohol. An unbeliever at that age myself and following his footsteps, I often tried it, and hated the effect it had on me; parinoid and very tense. My brother is now in his late 40's. He did experiment with other drugs and I have no idea of other addictions. Almost everyone who will smoke it are just as open to try other drugs. His addiction ruined his marriage and his life. He stopped for a few months once a couple of years ago and actually read the Bible for the first time. He's smoking again and shows no signs of conversion - at least not yet. I know God can still draw him in and I continue to pray!
