    Ok, heres the thing, sure Alcohol is cool and everything and being drunk
    can soemtimes be fun, but you feel like shit and like u r going to puke
    if you do nething, you get all warm, and u have a mean ass hangover in
    the morning, not to mention you cant control yorself sometimes, you do
    dumb stuff, and look like an ass. There is one answer...POT. Now most
    of you are probably saying right about now that im some addicted stoner
    druggy with no life. Wrongo buddy, Alcohol funks more people than pot
    does. Hence Alcoholics. Here are the benifits and cons of weed...



    Benefits:

    - Cheaper

    - Funner

    - It's like playing your favourite video game

    - You don't get hang overs

    - Not addictive like cigarettes

    - You don't feel like you want to puke

    - It's easier to get ahold of for underage kids

    - way way way funner

    - Everything is funny as hell

    - Foods taste better, music is better, movies are funnier, and that old lamp stand in your room is funny as hell whens stoned.



    Cons:

    - If you smoke too much eventually you will become phycologically addicted. (Just like alcohol)

    - If you smoke too much you will eventually start to slowly damage your brain (Just like alcohol)

    - It is still "Illegal" for some strange reason



    This is just for anyone who wants to smoke pot but afraid because
    everyone calls it a "drug" therefore you think it's like crack or
    something. A good rule of thumb is this, if you can't pick it out of
    the ground, dry it, and eat it/smoke it, then it's not in your best
    interest to use it. Say no to chemicles.

    I would have to agree that pot is way better for you and is extremely less damaging to you and your life. Although alcohol is way cheaper in my opinion. Me being an alcoholic(used to be acually but it never seems to go away) i say this from personal experience. The other thing i liked alcohol so much foris it was easier to excape reallity with and avoid my problems...funny that it created way more though[​IMG] Edited by: hippie_lain

    Way way funner huh ..



    IMO there's nothing more boring than hanging out with a bunch of
    stoners. They're stupid and sleepy. Hang out with a bunch of people who
    are drinking and they're fun, they do stuff.



    But suit yourself.



    "It's easier to get ahold of for underage kids"



    Yeah... umm .. how is this a good thing?

    I have way more fun at a party when I'm drunk than if I was stoned. At
    party's, I'll always drink. If I'm just chillin with a couple friends
    on a lazy night, then I'd rather smoke.

    i dont think you can compare alcohol and weed. they are both really fun and it all depends what kind of mood you're in. Alcohol is fun with a group of people or if you want to hook up with everyone. Weed is good in an occasion, especially if you just feel like relaxing.

    Alcohol is waaay cheaper and easier to get for me than weed. (I'm currently in Huiigh School). I like alcohol and weed the same. Yeah aftef Vodka you have nasty hangovers but when I'm mad drunkI have much more fun than when I'm stoned. It both screws you up, but hey there is nothing else to do :)

    -First off "funner" is not a word dumbass, i believe you were going for "more fun".............That proves my second point weed makes you stupid.


    -Its not cheaper


    -Food tastes even better when you are smashed


    -It's easier for kids? How is that good? and by the way it's just as easy to get booze, trust me.


    -If you smoke enough it will make you sick.


    -"way way way funner" congradulations you have made the most burnt statement ever!


    -Weed is more addictive than alcohol


    -"everything is funny" how is kerning out on a couch funny?


    Lastly this is the alcohol forum if you want to talk about weed go to the weed forum!


    Cheers !Edited by: MINUS

    - Pot does not make you stupid anymore than alcohol, Its alot more difficult to have a conversation with someone drunk off their ass than someone smoking weed.

    -Foods taste Is an opinion some like it better with weed some with alcohol.

    -It is easier for underage kids to get, you can buy it from people at school easily throughout the US. Weed is everywhere, this is sad because it is illegal and, really shows this war on drugs is working.

    - If you smoke enough it WILL make you sick?! That is SO NOT TRUE. Very rarely does weed cause people to throw up, most pot smokers can smoke all they want and not feel any sort of sickness.

    -("way way way funner" congradulations you have made the most burnt statement ever!) Your right on that one, good job eternal you grammar be good.

    -weed is more addictive than alcohol? That is completely obsured. I have been to my share of drug treatments, NA, and AA meetings and trust me on this alcoholics have it far worse than potheads. Most of them have ruined their lives due to this legal substance, they hate it yet they can not quit drinking.

    - (how is kerning out on a couch funny?) Alot of potheads are just as active as alcoholics, it is usually the beginners/lightweights that cannot get off of the couch. This goes away.

    Well this thread is comparing alcohol and weed. So it had to go in one of the forums.

    SWIM must admit that when he is drunk he does a lot funner stuff then when he is high. he is a lot more into stuff when he is high, but when he is drunk he cant do the simplest of things sometime. As for the price Alcohol is more expensive, 20$ for a 750ml of 99 Banans, and 20$ for a G, He can work a G into a few nights if he wanted to and a bottle can sometimes last only a night... to each his own though, My prefreence is pot because he can still type (not like now) and he can still function at work, if he went to work drunk all sorts of hell would go down.

    I'm not saying that alcohol has no negatives, by all means, it is flawed! However, weed also has its fair share of negatives. That was the point I was attempting to make. Eternal gave his opinion and basically pissed on alcohol, so I gave mine and pissed on weed. I know that alcohol can be bad, when thepeople who drink it don't act responsibly. The same goes for weed though.


    I guess that I, being an avid drinker, was slightly offended by Eternals post when he called my "drug" simply bad. Especially when alcohol is no different then any other drug, it has the pro's and the con's to it.


    So, i apologize if i offended anyone, by bashing weed.I just felt that both opinions should be stated.


    Cheers!Edited by: MINUS

    It's not "more" addicting, but it is as addicting. I have friends who need to smoke everyday. But none of my friends need to drink everyday, it's usually a weekend thing for them. I like to start my weekend on wednesday or thursday night, i guess you could say i'm more addicted than my friend who drink but not even close to my friends that smoke.

    Weed is not phisiclly addictive like alcohol is. There is no abstinence when you don't smoke it, as there is for alcoholics. And although it causes cancer, WEED DOES NOT CAUSE BRAIN DAMAGE. It is of course mentally addicting, but so is anything that you enjoy.

    If you told Ronaldinio that he cant play football anymore, he'd get depressed and frustrated aswell. I think both weed and alcohol have their good sides. Weed is to relax and have a good time, and alcohol is to party and have a good time. Not knowing whats going on is half the funEdited by: Creeping Death

    hmm, depends on situation. I enjoy both at the same time, but if
    i had to choose one, i guess i would drink. Just because im a
    lazy stone, but a wild, happy, party drunk. Again situation plays
    the key factor. I dont really get hangovers unless i drink myself
    retarded when i cant remember my name. SO many variables in
    my decision, tough to say.
