    The website dopestats.com is an interesting site I’ve used in the past for substance abuse papers and projects.

    I don’t know if it’ll have that specific statistic, but it can’t hurt to look.

    Good luck to you.

    I don’t? know, it depends on the person.. One of my friends had severe psychosis after smoking weed.. I guess it depends on your biological, psychological etc. factors. But I wouldn’t say that it’s risk free though.

  • Shenannigan101 says:

    Sure, this video shocked me,? especially THE heroin part, but i don’t think that weed should be in here. Drugs destroy you, i agree, but weed isnt that much of à big deal! But maybe this is my opinion because I’m Dutch.

  • dpyousee says:

    actually, you really can. sugar and caffeine create those same chemical imbalances that you are talking about, though not? quite to the extent that drugs would

  • WBartok77 says:

    You can not compare food to drugs that creates chemical umbalances to your brain and nervous system. You loose self control? because drugs take control over you, you don’t control the drugs you use, they control you

  • WBartok77 says:

    . until you have lost everything, your health, your self-steem,? your family and friends, and most important of all RESPECT FOR YOURSELF. I have seen friends gone forever because at one point they have believe in the same false image that you have about drugs. why wasting your life away when you can do so much? I respect your opinion but beleive me using drugs DOES NOT WORTH IT. I bet you have never seen a person who has been using drugs in their last stageof life.

  • st0yst0y says:

    thats not really true. have you ever eaten an oreo and then put? the bag back? its called self control.

  • WBartok77 says:

    The only way you don’t get addicted is by? NOT EVEN TRYING DRUGS.
