  • Well, the drug does have stong effect on the brain, and is just as dangerous to growing and developing brain as alcohol is. Of course, these childish americans will never accept hard facts…

  • THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE GOOD ENOUGH !! FOLKS THAT CAN GO FIGHT AND DIE FOR THIS COUNTRY HAVE A RIGHT TO USE TO HELP THEM DEAL INSTEAD OF ALCOHOL !! THIS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH !!! VAPORIZING IS NOT SMOKING OR VAPING !!! GET OVER IT YOU GUYS ! YOU TALK ABOUT DEVELOPING BRAIN LOL AND ALCOHOL IS LEGAL !?? GO BACK TO PROHIBITION AND SEE HOW THAT WORKS !! LOL

  • I agree with the surgeon general.

    I started at a young age, and would have been happy to wait (or would have used in more moderation), knowing what I know now (especially with legalization on the rise).

    But I'm older, and wiser now….its hard to restrain when your wild, and young.

    …and the sh*t nowadays is so potent.

  • No one should be smoking it. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20  Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body  and in your spirit, which are God’s.

  • Keep it all the Way Funky says:

    I’ve done my own research. Goes something like this. I’m in my late 40s and My mom smoked with me and my 6 siblings. I smoked with both my pregnancies. My kids are fully grown successful men. My daughter in law smoked during both her pregnancies and her kids are absolutely fine, they’re thriving little boys. Personally for me, nothing worked better for morning sickness. Im not saying you or anyone else should smoke anything during pregnancy or any other time. I’m just explaining my experiences and if you don’t like my comment that’s fine too. Move on.
    Peace ✌🏽

  • I remember when i was 20 & just smoked pot. Life was great. Then came pills & meth & a decade in prison..
    Now im 40 & just smoke pot.
    I wish i didnt . im irritable. My mental illinesses are thriving.
    I dont recommend putting anything in your body to alter your reality..

  • My take on these four interviewees. (from left to right) First woman is very articulate, but a very strong advocate for whatever cause is in the news. Woman number two, just a follower, has no clear thoughts of her own, but loves the word "autonomous". First man is very immature. Another follower who has probably not thought about the subject for more than about five minutes before the interview. He's just voices what the current majority thinks. The last man I would give some credence to, although I think he will eventually change his mind on the subject as he grows older. NBC news took very little time with this article. Took no time at all in finding credible interviewees, and only wanted to show one side.

  • Considering currently available data and the conclusions drawn by the surgeon general.

    It is only safe for an individual to consume basic whole food and water before the age of 25.

  • What about the question of DRIVING? Just because, or IF, one is less impaired by Cannabis than Alcohol, doesn’t make it SAFE! A slower reaction time is deadly when driving. This SHOULD have been addressed.

  • Well even they want to limit it to 18. Lets start with that. Get it out of schedule 1. And most important. Do the research so we know! At least that would be a start to setting rules to this. Or perhaps drinking age is reasonable. But they are partly right. We don't completely ban alcohol or tobacco. At least the first one has very bad mental effects.

  • scare tactics from the good old u.s.a. government. more lives were ruined in one year (by what are now considered abusive criminal statutes) that criminalized the sale and use of marajuana than all the perceived damage that ever actually occurred. and now the government is back at it again, and not missing a step while granting big pharma clearance for one dangerous drug after another. 30 years ago, only those at death's door took prescription medication on a daily basis. now practically everybody is taking MULTIPLEs. and U.S. male life expectancies are DECREASING!!! what's THAT tell you?

  • How do they know for sure they're not going to harm anyone?

    If their brain slows down, it might hinder their driving ability which could lead to the deaths of someone else. If they were doctors or cops with the not fully functioning brains they could end up killing a lot of people.

  • An Old Fashioned Preacher says:

    One of these days God will hold you responsible for your "personal autonomy". There is freedom in Jesus Christ from addiction.

  • Christopher Sabionski says:

    The number of people killed by marijuana=zero
    The number of people killed by sugar=millions
    Humans are so gullible.

  • Ok, I THOUGHT… The science wasn't in!? Surgeon general claims to have knowledge that the rest of us don't? They have been lying for 100 years!! Marijuana is the keystone. They lie about everything!

  • Smoking anything is a very disturbing thought, all these poor souls need to understand the love of God smoking marijuana is poison it will catch up to you in the future and keep you out of heaven 😭😭😭😭
