    Default Marijuana

    I'm curious what the general opinions on this forum are about this hallucinogen. Not to mention that "Likely to support the legalization of marijuana" has been used in some similiar mind's descriptions of personality types.

    Do you think it is addictive?
    Do you think it is safer than alcohol, tobacco, and narcotics?
    Should it be legalized?
    Do you think it serves a legitimate purpose as a medicinal substance?
    Do you believe anyone has ever died from marijuana?
    What do you believe are the short and long term side effects of its use?
    What benefits do you see in its use?
    Are the advertising campaigns worth the millions taxpayers spend to keep kids from trying it?
    What would you do if you found either your children or someone else's children using it?
    Have you ever tried it? If not, do you think you ever will? If you have, was the experience worth breaking the law?
    What personality type would be most likely to support the legalization of marijuana?

    Do you think it is addictive? nope
    Do you think it is safer than alcohol, tobacco, and narcotics? I think that any smoked substance is just about as dangerous for you as the next- better for driving than alcohol
    Should it be legalized? yes
    Do you think it serves a legitimate purpose as a medicinal substance? yes
    Do you believe anyone has ever died from marijuana? not unless it was some sort of drug deal gone bad maybe lung cancer... I don't know
    What do you believe are the short and long term side effects of its use? same as smoking
    What benefits do you see in its use? don't understand the question
    Are the advertising campaigns worth the millions taxpayers spend to keep kids from trying it? Hell no! I don't think it should be illegal in the first place!
    What would you do if you found either your children or someone else's children using it? I really don't think I would care
    Have you ever tried it? If not, do you think you ever will? If you have, was the experience worth breaking the law? I have tried it on more than one occasion- I'm a bigger fan of alcohol personally
    What personality type would be most likely to support the legalization of marijuana? someone with a P???

    and if you report me to the police or something I'll slit your throat! I'm trying to appear to be a good citizen to get a job!

    I see it as mostly the same as smoking, though less bad for you purely because the quantities smoked are generally quite a bit lower.

    I'm probably the only istp, ever, who hasn't tried it. I don't feel the need to, though I have nothing against it. I haven't ruled it out though, maybe sometime when I'm bored I'll try it. The illegality part doesn't bother me obviously.

    I think it should be equivalent to tobacco legality-wise.

    I think the US govt should stop wasting our tax dollars including it in the "war against drugs." Decriminalize it, already.

    Well you could always bake it or mix it in butter.

    About the same.

    Short term; smokers can become lazy, paranoid, anxious, panicky and suspicious.

    Long term; lung disease and cancer. Can help trigger mental health problems.

    It helps people become more like us INTPs.

    Helps people be more creative, chilled out, and relaxed.

    Do you think it is addictive?

    Chemically,marginally so. THC could be viewed as addictive, however, but most things could be addictive. It is more so than most common items, but less than current legal drugs.

    Do you think it is safer than alcohol, tobacco, and narcotics?

    Yes.

    Should it be legalized?

    Indifferent. I only evaluate it from it's relative position on the schedules - it should not be schedule I drug. I don't believe it should be unregulated, relative to the other drugs out there.

    Do you think it serves a legitimate purpose as a medicinal substance?

    No, not notably. The active ingredients may, but it wouldn't remain "marijuana" if it was a legitimate medical substance.

    Do you believe anyone has ever died from marijuana?

    Yes... since it's illegal and I'm pretty sure somewhere that has had a lethal effect.

    Do I think it is dangerous? Marginally so. Certainly less than common less regulated substances.

    What do you believe are the short and long term side effects of its use?

    Long term effects seem to involve a loss of memory and impairment of thinking. Short term seems to involve increases in blood pressure and is a muscle relaxant. (This is from memory, from a long while back)

    What benefits do you see in its use?

    Minor ones in rare cases where more effective drugs are ineffective. The largest benefit from it comes from the plant for industrial purposes.

    Are the advertising campaigns worth the millions taxpayers spend to keep kids from trying it?

    I'd rather that be spent on alcohol and tobacco.

    What would you do if you found either your children or someone else's children using it?

    Ignore it.

    Have you ever tried it? If not, do you think you ever will? If you have, was the experience worth breaking the law?

    No, and no.

    What personality type would be most likely to support the legalization of marijuana?

    P mostly. I would assume I>E, but I don't know for sure. Within MBTI, I'd assume SP > NP, but I'm not sure about NJ and SJ

    No, I think it's just as dangerous as any narcotic.
    Should it be legalized?
    No. And alcohol and tobacco should be illegal as well.
    Do you think it serves a legitimate purpose as a medicinal substance?
    No. I think that's an excuse they made up to justify their addiction.
    Do you believe anyone has ever died from marijuana?
    No, but I do believe it damaged their brains.
    What do you believe are the short and long term side effects of its use?
    The short term effects involve getting "high," obviously that's why people do it. The long term effects are brain damage, lung damage, financial ruin, and possible jail time.
    What benefits do you see in its use?
    None, unless you count the fact that it helps "weed" out people who don't think ahead and make bad decisions.
    Are the advertising campaigns worth the millions taxpayers spend to keep kids from trying it?
    No. It should just be punished to such an extent that no one is willing to risk it.
    What would you do if you found either your children or someone else's children using it?
    If they were my children (and I'm not a parent, so I don't know for certain), I would probably take them down to the police station, and tell the police what they had been doing, having them confiscate the drugs. I would then ask if they could please show them the cells for a second, and tell them that this is where they're going to end up if they keep doing drugs. If they were another person's children, I would tell their parents what they were doing, and hope they acted appropriately. If they didn't, I would probably try to stay out of it if I could.
    Have you ever tried it? If not, do you think you ever will? If you have, was the experience worth breaking the law?
    I haven't tried it, and I never will.
    What personality type would be most likely to support the legalization of marijuana?
    ESFP maybe?

Personally I don't like mind altering substances since I get much better natural highs, but I'm curious as to why you seem to demand such a strict adherence to the standard when it comes to marijuana. Is it because you consider it a lapse of discipline as well as a detriment to safety and security?
