I beg every teenager that comes to this website, to say "no" to drugs. You have more influence on your friends and peers than you could imagine. It all starts with the thought that either it's cool to do drugs or you can just do it once without it affecting you. Drugs have a terribly strong hold on those who fall to them. There are so many teens who o.d. every year. They didn't think that doing a small ammount of drugs would ruin their lives, but you can see what happens to them all. That fate could be our friends'. We could save their lives if we would just take a stand! Be a different teen! Make a difference in your friends lives!

Anyway, as a final comment, a vast majority of drug addicts suffer from mental illness and if you're not mentally ill, I frankly do not care at all about your opinion on the matter. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Affects is a verb and effects is a noun. e.g. "This affects that" vs. "The effect was". So yes, affects is correct. Bye lmao

Actually, both spellings are correct. They're homophones. But thank you for making a completely pointless contribution to my comment.

The definition of a drug is something that changes something in one's body. Marijuana is a drug and it can do damage. It can become a habit that distracts from life, or it can lead to more serious drugs. But I agree that alcohol has a larger impact on society. I wish it could be abolished, but unfortunately, if alcohol is abolished, there will be a huge crime increase, as seen during the prohibition period.

Once again, please get a degree. ADHD is not made up and you would know that if you spent less time commenting stupid slurs on this site and more time getting an education. And also just because someone you know uses marijuana and is fine, that doesn't validate the argument that marijuana is healthy or doesn't do any damage. It's called a logical fallacy. Please know that you are part of the part of society that is ignorant.

Ah yes, the awful horrible affects of responsibly used pot. Affects like . . . momentarily lack of motivation? I guess?

It's stupid to take illegal drugs because you're only making yourself a psycho.

Human life without knowledge of history is nothing other than a perpetual childhood, nay, a permanent obscurity and darkness.

Yeah but if you take morphine for a little scrape, and you get hooked, well then that;s okay because the doctor prescribes it! Or if you have the made up disease known as: ADD or ADHD they give you pill-form amphetamines, oh boy that'll help 'em! But no POT, listen Someone-That-Isn't-Me smokes and he says it's okay and he can function just fine on it and it relieves tension caused by this incredibly horrible modern-society like poverty, immorality, and of course ignorance.
