    Smoking weed is not really more dangerous than excess smoking of ordinary cigarette or overindulging in alcohol. Weed is rated among the less addictive drugs. Its addictive properties are ranked less than that of coffee. It is actually less dangerous than tobacco.

    It's not a matter of what WE personally think. Look up the word drug . Yes it IS a drug.
    It is ignorant to say it's not a drug.
    Rio and deanokat like this.

    tbh: Weed is not a drug and it never will be its a plant. Nd if you did your research like i did you would know. Molly nd co cane is a drug. A drug is something you have to do to it. Like adding baking soda or oil i dont know the ingredients but yea. Weed just has a chemical in it called **** it nd makes u have the munchies.

    Weed is a drug, no doubt. And it is the most commonly used drug in the world. Though occasional use isn’t usually harmful, it can still affect the brain and body. Weed/Marijuana is also believed to be a gateway drug, and it can put people at risk for addiction.

    Weed Is not a drug, a drug is man made and weed however is grown from a seed and how some people are saying "Speed and meth come from Khat which grows naturally, cocaine comes from coca plants which grow naturally and heroin comes from poppies which grow naturally" yeah that may be true but you have to take those plants and mix them with other chemicals to make that drug but with weed it is grown and does not have to be altered in any way to give you that high feeling so it is nothing but a erb a drug would be something like cocaine, heroine, meth, LSD, xanax, adderall ect. So weed is technically not a drug but gets labeled as one.

    Who cares if it is or is not technically a drug. Aspirin is derived from the willow tree. Does it have s h i t dumped all over its head? No, because it doesn't have the beautiful psychoactive effects that THC does. Weed compared to aspirin is rich with many benefits to it. By the same "toke"n, many people hate others cuz they are rich with money. Now is that fair? He'll no it isnt.

    So, let's not pick on weed. Be nice. It's been here since the beginning and thankfully, is here to stay. Everyone should know, that a "cash cow" like weed is only going to gain positive interest by the federal government.

    Peace to all of you,

    In the modern sense, "drug" is a legal term and means only that the product is included in the international or national drug lists. From the scientific perspective of this word, there is a dispute between the scientists, but most of them consider weed as a drug. It's addictive and changes a person's cognitive state. However, I don't think weed is a dangerous drug and have nothing against it, though I don't like smoking in general. If I want to try it, I usually get weed gummies from that could give almost the same effects.
