> > Memory loss: So does liquor? Hah! I call bullshit on that one. It's possible to "black out" and lose a specific period of time; it's called a memory lapse. It doesn't cause any long(er) term effects on your memory like marijuana does.

Surely. There aren't long-term memory effects with marijuana. It's that the substance lingers longer in the system - that's true - and hence its effect pervades longer. But there are a few factors involved - what type and strain it is, the overall toxicity of a person, sleep cycle and length of rest periods.
Regardless, the stats of vehicle incidents caused by those who are drunk versus those who are high lean staggeringly toward the former. When I was high school, we used to cruise the freeway and fishbowl it with a footer graphics. Never remotely caused any incidents.
Also, the science part I was referring to was the cancer curing. Like I said, I'm open to the idea, but those who claim must show the science.
Incidentally, I do not believe. It's not a part of my function.
Lastly, as I forgot to mention this, kudos to Naoki for being almost completely substance-free. I say almost because he probably uses commercial brand hygiene products, or is at least significantly exposed to them via the wife and kids, and at the very least in the work place.
