If you feel a post is inappropriate

Hi folks,

Just a quick note in regards to the moderation of the group. Sometimes if I am a bit short on time or if we get a lot of posts at once I may have to just skim the overall gist of the posts rather than reading them word for word before I approve them, also we all have a different perspective as to what is acceptable and thus there may sometimes be the odd post that gets through that you may feel is inappropriate. And while this doesn’t seem to happen very often if there is anything that anybody reads and feels is inappropriate then please feel free to either shoot me a PM or use the contact form to let me know and I will always be happy to take another look at it.

Please keep in mind however that a post does have to be quite bad or harmful to the group as a whole for us to delete it, I don’t like to be too heavy handed with that kind of moderation and try to reserve it for only when it is absolutely necessarily as generally I like people to be able to have their say and most things can be ironed out with dialogue and often we can all learn from it, that said if you feel something is inappropriate like I say please feel free to let me know and I will be happy to take another look.


All the best,

  • Brain scans that show marijuana harms the brain

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    A new Australian study says long-term, heavy cannabis use causes brain damage that is equivalent to mild-traumatic brain injury, or premature aging. And the researchers say the results show that cannabis can adversely affect all users, not just those in high risk categories like the young or those susceptible to mental illness, as previously thought.

    Here is a video of some spect scans which show marijuana use harms the brain.

    Marijuana Addiction Abuse

    Here’s another link to a brain scan that shows harm due to cannabis use, they show a normal healthy brain and a brain after twelve years of cannabis use. As you can see it’s full of areas where it no longer functions.

      I think when evaluating how damaging marijuana can be to the brain, you have to keep in mind what the doctor in the clip says about some peoples brains been more susceptible to damage by drugs than others. That’s the thing about the way marijuana affects us, people need to realise the genetic makeup of all our bodies is different, we are all different, we all react differently, some are more vulnerable than others, in many different ways. Sure marijuana use will damage everybody’s brain to some extent, but some more than others. How do you know which you will be? Well you don’t, that’s the gamble you take when you use.

          I think maybe people get the wrong idea when it comes to the damage cannabis does to the brain. Cannabis does damage the brain, but and depending on your vulnerability as discussed and how much you smoke, it is often fairly subtle similar to premature aging. You may not become a vegetable sitting in the corner dribbling and for this reason allot of people probably dismiss the idea that it damages the brain at all, but brain damage can be far more subtle than that, it will affect your memory and cognitive abilities in a similar way that the aging process does. And here’s the scary part, considering how long people are living these days and how much longer they will continue to live in the future, if it prematurely ages the brain of people who aren’t that old, what are their brains going to be like by the time they really are old. You could be storing up trouble for much later on in life. And it’s not very nice to have a perfectly healthy body with a brain that’s dying and suffering from dementia. So just bear in mind how long you could live and what your quality of life or lack of it could end up being.

            A very good point. You may feel fine while you’re in your twenties or thirties, but if you carry on as you are just think what you may be like in your sixties or seventies, which by the time you get to them may not be that old, you may have to live for allot longer. Also with the strength of the stuff people are smoking these days, a whole generation are taking part in one huge experiment, in terms of what they may be like in latter life. The likes of which we have never seen before.

              My memory is not as good as it used to be, it used to be so good. Now I am so forgetful.

                Think about it if cannabis did not stop the brain from working properly, then it would not affect your memory which it does.

                Scans also reveal brain damage from cannabis is like schizophrenia.

                Here’s an article by the times about more brain scans that prove cannabis damages the brain.

                  All recreational drugs including alcohol damage the brain, marijuana is no different.

                    The longer we live the more we need our brains to stay in good shape. My generation are abusing drink and dope like there’s no tomorrow. In thirty year’s time we could end up with a whole generation of zombies.
