I wont pretend to be an expert on this but here's what I know, my older brother has been a HUGE pothead since his early teens, he's 22 now, you know what he does? nothing.

apart from basiclly destroying your brain and turning you into a vegetable, marijuana is actually a really great substance! Oh yeah Id say it will have a massive impact on his training physically and mentally, and he will have the reflexes of a slab of concrete.





HAHAH what a tool.

Simply put, I will not host propaganda advocating illegal activity on this site.

Make your own choices in life, live by them, but do not try and paint the world of substance abuse as a bed of roses.

There are arguments both for, and against it for a reason, and having been on both sides at different times of my life,I understand where you are coming from, but this is not the place for that debate.

if u wanna do something more healthy than working out i would say lay off the drugs. i know i cant tell you to do anything and expect you to listen. its your own life do what u need to. but u should understand the what drugs do to u. drugs arent just all fun and games.

They probably found vegetables in there as well. Are those dangerous too? Doctors concluded that marijuana had nothing to do with his death, so it's really quite irrelevant.

That's the last thing you'll hear from me in this thread. It always gets ugly when free thinkers speak up in threads like this.

Styx -

If it's irrelevant as you say, why did YOU feel the need to mention it? And Bruce Lee died quite young, so your point is.......?

Sorry to break my promise

Marijuana is irrelevant to his early death, that's what I meant. I only mentioned it as a fun fact, as I stated in my post. I do think it's quite interesting that Bruce Lee chose to use marijuana though, especially if you guys are right and occasional marijuana use ruins your life and makes it impossible to succeed as a martial artist. I would think Bruce Lee would be a good example of the opposite.

I also think censorship should be exercised carefully. Using U.S. law as an excuse is pretty lame, considering this is an international forum and thankfully some other countries has a more sensible drug policy (IMHO). Blatant, uninformed advertising is never a good thing, but an intelligent debate should be allowed. I don't know which category the censored post above fits in, as I never got to read it.

I'm sorry to start my posting career here on FA on the wrong foot by the way. Please don't remember me only as a drug advocating fiend the next few years

I don't think that the law is the issue. Your argument of "Bruce Lee would be a good example of the opposite" is poor logic at best. I don't think the argument is neccessarily that "marijuana will ruin your life" - although I have personal experience that it does. Rather, that harmful behavior (smoking, etc) will certainly limit the capacity one has to reach their personal limits.

Not just the physically destructive part, but also the mental fog that being high causes. Neither are conducive to long term gain in martial arts study - or anything else, really. This is why you will not find much support for this behaviour from experienced members here.

My main point is that there is a major difference between use and abuse. Marijuana abuse is definately harmful, as far as I can tell. Responsible marijuana use is not.

Lots of things people do aren't conducive to long term gain in martial arts study, but as long as they think the tradeoff is fair, they're going to keep doing it. Playing PlayStation games certainly isn't conducive to long term gain in martial arts study, and neither is having a few drinks on saturday night. The fact that you don't personally enjoy it shouldn't affect the freedom of speech on this board.

(christ, I'm coming off as a huge [censored] here, sorry )
