  • I always had a mental debate with the phrase "drugs and alcohol" anything that alters the perception of you're brain, or the course of you're actions is a drug. I mean, big fuckin deal, drugs are good if, and only if, the user is smart enough to know wich ones will age the hell out of you and ruin you. THC (tetrahydrocannibinol) sounds like a drug to me, bout to smoke some.

    • Tea contains psychoactive drugs too.

      Maybe the imbeciles should ban tea too!?

      'I don't like tea, I don't drink tea, I can't drink tea anymore because it makes me nauseous...therefore no-one should drink tea!'
      -Thoughtless imbecile ideology.

  • Drug has many meanings. It is a pretty useless classification for understanding things.

  • Yes, it is a drug. But a lot of thing that are drugs are not considered drugs. Hell, caffeine is a drug.

  • Incorrect.

    "Marijuana" is not a drug.
    "Marijuana" is an alternate common name for a plant (Cannabis sativa).
    The Cannabis sativa plant contains numerous drugs.

    Similarly, 'coffee' is not a drug.
    'Coffee' is a common name for several species of plants (small trees or shrubs) in the genus Coffea. 'Coffee' is also used to refer to the fruit seed of the plant, or a beverage prepared from the seed of the plant (usually, but not always, Coffea arabica).
    Coffee plants contain numerous drugs, the most important of which is caffeine.

    Both cannabinoids and caffeine are drugs.
    Coffee and Cannabis (marijuana), are not.

  • Of course its a drug. Why would people waste their money on it if it didn't make you high? (except for medical reasons). Marijuana can be addictive just like coffee, cookies or whatever you happen to have a hard time quitting. As far as a drug though its lightweight in comparison to drugs like narcotics or alcohol.
