I don't have a view on weed either way personally.

Never smoked it, if other people do then fair enough.

Given the amount of beer I've drunk over the past decade I can't really lecture anyone on 100% clean living.

Beer and gambling are my two vices, never had a cigarette or a joint in my life.... never mind any harder shit.

don't see how daily mail has got anything to do with it.

just from my personal experiences - 3 of my mates have been in mental homes cos of it! 1 of them ended up jumping in front of a train!

It's not harmless I can assure you. Even you stoners who defend it to the hilt probably don't even realize how it affects you. You're probably sat there thinking it has no negative effects on your life whatsoever as you spark up your saturday joint in front of the tv and your laptop
