The Benefits of Smoking or Eating Marijuana are as follows:

A. Typical cure or prevention of Glaucoma a serious eye disease.

B. Used by Aids and Terminal Patients to ease nausea and delirium

C. Natural Sedative and sleep aid if you use the Sativa instead of Indica.

D. Natural non toxic tranquilizer depending on dosage, and strain.

E. Improves creativity in some for writing, speaking, drawing, painting, song writing, poetry, and has been used by very many college students to make typically boring subjects and professors interesting. Enables many students who have problems studying the ability to retain information and make it more interesting. (warning - it also has been known to produce short-term memory loss, which would interfere with retaining information)

F. Outstanding cure for those with the eating disorder of not eating, or not wanting to eat; or who have an illness where they need to gain weight as they are too thin. (It can create an eating desire referred to as "Munchies."

G. A much less toxic way to relax, calm down, have an attitude change, without the toxic effects and hangover of alcohol. (although common contaminants from street marijuana can be more toxic than alcohol - YMMV)

H. The Indica strains are used as a natural stimulant for some which can create more clarity, focus, and precision. That is why many office workers may smoke Indica instead of using caffeine to be alert, work harder, faster, be more creative, accurate, and make their work day more interesting.

I. If you are very sensitive to Marijuana it is suggested you take very small doses, as extremely sensitive people to marijuana may feel paranoia, or uncomfortable, whereas the majority of marijuana users do not typically experience this as they control their dosage. THC, the prime chemical in Marijuana which affects the brain by releasing hormones and chemicals that affect people differently depending on what strain you smoke, the potency of the strain, whether it's indica, or sativa, and how much your use. Beginners that use Marijuana should experiment with the strength of Pot they smoke, Indica (More mental), Sativa (More of a physical relaxant), and start with only one or two puffs to check dosage.

J. Unless you are a chronic user, smoking once per day should do minimal damage to your lungs and body.

K. An Ice Breaker socially on dates, in relationship, some say an aphrodisiac (because of its possible relaxing effects), relaxant, or assistance to the libido for many freeing them up to be more romantic, more sensual, and more passionate, as it's been claimed to heighten the intensity of sex, lust, passion, and orgasm.

L. A safe additive to social events, whereas alcohol may create chaos, conflict, or violence, Marijuana rarely creates a negative environment socially, on the contrary, it typically mellows the crowd out and create more of a family setting, with enjoyable after affects.

M. Aids in sleep, insomnia, and inability to calm down for hyper people who need to wind down, without the toxic effects of cigarettes which nuke your blood sugar, and alcohol which destroys your liver and carries a terrible hangover with it. (although in some people it actually creates insomnia. Withdrawal after prolonged use can also result in insomnia)

N. Many use it to fight depression naturally without side effects, as they say it blocks many of the negative emotions people can carry with them. (although in some people it induces depression)

O. Heightens enjoyment of senses, making music sound better to some, food taste better, touching more exciting, hearing accented, sensitivity to light, and sense of smell.

P. Can be used as a truth medication to discover information from a friend or a loved one, if the dosage is high enough, people are said to have confessed information, they might not ordinarily talk about while high. (because it reduces inhibitions - similar to alcohol)

Q. Many use Cannibus/Marijuana as a way to wean themselves off of tobacco, which could mean only 1 marijuana cigarette a day instead of 20 to 40 tobacco cigarettes, which can eventually be lethal (The Tobacco) Very few if any cases of people getting cancer from Marijuana are documented, but millions die from alcohol and tobacco.

R. Many Men are not aware that Marijuana is a natural birth control that substantially reduces SPERM COUNT, when used regularly to reduce the likelihood conception, although not guaranteed, it is a FACT, that Male Marijuana smokers will have a much lower sperm count, reducing the percentage of conception.

S. Many women whom are sexually or intimately inhibited, use Marijuana to reduce their inhibitions, and fear of intimacy to enjoy their mate much more.

T. Many people use the Indica Strain when they awake in lieu of coffee, caffeine, or guarana to excite their day, get them rolling, wash away the tired feeling and motivate them to get ready for work.

It is not recommended you take a heavy dose of Marijuana and drive, but many claim to drive better on low doses of Marijuana as they believe it makes them more focused, more of a defensive driver, more alert of their surroundings, & More sensitive to danger from other vehicles or pedestrians. Whether this is true or just because their judgement is impaired enough to give them a false sense of improvement has not been established.

"Marijuana has been used for eons as a medicine, a sedative, a stimulant, and a relaxant, including healing properties in treating Glaucoma, and perhaps a natural way for Birth Control. It has been used throughout the ages by many tribes and natives for ceremonial purposes, initiation, visions, sweat lodges, and supposedly elevating one's consciousness to the environment around them, that they might not ordinarily had been aware of without the use of Marijuana.

As with any Drug, narcotic, alcohol, sugar, chocolate, coffee, caffeine, or any substance that could be interpreted as "Addicting," Marijuana should never be abused or overused to the point that you need it or smoke it all day, everyday, which a "Few" Chronic users do; as most marijuana users only use Marijuana for the medical or recreational reasons mentioned above, the benefits mentioned above, and like anything in society that is addictive (Including sex).

Abusive people, that are addictive, could become addicted to anything, and go beyond using everything to feed their addictions, but normal people who know not to over due it on anything in life, know that using whatever feels, tastes, or helps your life should be used in moderation so as not to create a mental, emotional, or physical dependence on such substance. IN that case, the use of marijuana should be controlled and never abused, as an answer to real life.
