  • Advantages :

    -It's the most versatile medicine available. It's rarely a cure, but it can manage hundreds of symptoms.

    -It's more effective at fighting of tumors than chemotherapy or radiation.

    -It's the safest choice for recreational drug use. It cannot cause an overdose, nor a physical addiction. Sobering up is easier to do with weed than other substances.

    -It opens up the mind and makes you see things in a whole new perspective.

    Disadvantages :

    -Despite not being physically addictive, people can create a psychological dependence on weed. Which can lead to a negative spiral down until someone has an empty life.

    -Abuse at a young age can cause permanent damage, especially for those who have a predisposition for schizophrenia. Abuse at a later age can cause temporary changes in brainfunctions while still using even though sober at the moment. This however completely disappears after a week - 2 weeks of soberness. Then all brain functions get restored to normal.

    There is no damage, marijuana does not kill brain cells.

      Not only the most versatile medicine, but also the safest. The most dangerous drugs are legal pharmaceuticals like anti-depressants and heavy painkillers.

      Oh yes and it's illegal, biggest downside.

      Why the downvote? I've shared nothing but facts.

      Also I shouldn't forget to mention that the only reason weed acts like a gateway drug is because it's illegal.
