Does pot make you lazy?

David wrote to tell us about DrugCritics.com, a drug education website focused on the experiences of drug users. Drug users can sign up and submit reviews and experiences for the commonly used legal and illegal drugs. Users rate drugs, share experiences, and debate the controversial issues of drug use. For instance, does pot make you lazy?

Yes, pot makes you lazy. Marijuana is a depressant by nature. It makes you tired and less likely to move. Iíve never smoked weed and done anything productive, and, all of my friends and acquaintances that smoke a lot of weed are complete burnouts. All they do is play video games and watch TV...

And on the other side of the debate:

No, pot does not make you lazy... What I have found is that marijuana can make everything seem much more interesting. Whether it is a movie, sporting event, video game, or homework - when you are high, it is more fun. This causes unmotivated people to become content with sitting on a couch and watching TV or playing video games all day. These people are already lazy and unmotivated before they ever smoked marijuana. Marijuana was just a simple solution that allows their lazy, boring life to seem exciting and interesting. If these people stopped using marijuana, they might get off the couch more often, but not out of a new found motivation, but because of the boring reality they are experiencing without marijuana...

Feel free to weigh in on this issue at the site. They have polls for the items they discuss.

smokin it makes u lazy. : 2011-02-01 02:26:34
smokin it decreases lung function. u introduce carbon monoxide into ur cells & therefore feel lethargic. eating it is the best alternative. getting high in the morning isn't a good idea, just like drinking alcohol in the mornin is frowned upon--and those who do it are labeled alcoholics. the 1st comment where dude said marijuana is a depressant-i'm not too sure about that because medical marijuana is legally prescribed for those who have depression. I think at that point u need to distinguish between the 2 different types of marijuana--indica & sativas. Indica's are good for inducing sleep in insomniacs & for killing pain, so I'd make an educated guess that indicas can make ppl lazy.

i believe pot makes most people lazy.. but for me its different.. if i dont have weed, my room is never clean, and i am not as creative.. once i get a hit or 3 into me i clean my room, do some mental work, go hiking, or ride my bike around.... i am more productive when im high..... BUT when im stoned is where it usually hits the walll and i become completly lazy.. if everyone were just high, it would be fun, sociable, and active.. its the stoners that make weed look bad.. get high, and then get high, but dont be passin around blunts in a 3 man circle.. well.. do.. but only if you dont have anything planned ;o)

SMOKING marijuania can lead to lung damage. Other ingestion
methods for its use are recommended. E.g. vaporizers.
