RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Seriously it should be legal. If you don't believe so, then post your views on here and prepare to get raped in an argument with me.

I know that. Hope it's legal in 2-6 years. Then I'll smoke all I want and stop being a dick.

Why isn't weed legal?

Weed isn't legal for a number of reasons:

- People are misinformed about it
- It's been illegal for a while already and people don't feel like changing it
- Too many authoritarian douchebuckets don't want it
- The only people who like it a lot smoke it illegally

I'd be all for legalizing it, so long as no one offers me any.

It'll be legal in the next 20 years or so, and if it isn't what the fuck ever. It's not like it's hard to get ahold of.

You don't WANT it legalized. Just watch the vid, I'm to lazy to type why.

Maybe the tokers will quit bothering the more abstinent citizens like myself if weed is legalized. That's a major upside.

highly unlikely, unless you aren't bothered by people saying things along the lines of "dude, i smoked 5 pounds of weed last night" right next to you...all some people know is how to announce dumb decisions they made on a grande scale to anybody in speaking distance, shit gets annoying real fast

this is some sort of paradox...to say that it isn't illegal is to say that it is legal in every single part of the country you are a resident of (in this case U.S.A) and since Colorado is one of the few states you can get stoned in, that means that it is still illegal everywhere else...weed failure

plus, if you wanted to smoke weed you could have just packe dyour bags and moved to Amsterdam and worked on becoming a citizen so that you could just buy the weed anyways

It really isnt that hard to get some. Heck, my own momdeals weed all the time. I saw her selling it to a 7 year old once. The police see weed dealers all the time, and they dont give a flying fuck. Just go to highland park in detroit, and get your weed!

Why isn't weed legal?

I can get it but I don't want to be arrested or help fund insane moms, cartels, or other bad things.
It's an herb of peace, and having it be illegal does just the opposite.
I can get all the weed I want here (I used to smoke every day), but I'm not going to because
1) My parents pay my bills and will pay for my college and don't want me to, and I respect that
2) Because weed at a young age can fuck with development, and I'm only 15
3) Because it is no fun having to worry about being caught all the time because everyone is watching whether I smoke weed, and that ruins the experience.

RE: Why isn't weed legal?

For the simple reason that weed was discovered too late. By the time we knew about the dangers of alcohol/tobbaco, the population was used to using it and the gov't had figured out how to tax it. Actually, zagix, on a metabolical level, you're all grown up.

On a metabolical level regarding medicines and such, that happened at 12. If you're a female, you're highly likely to be able to safely give birth. Granted, the impulse control of your brain isn't fully developed yet but as that happens in the mid-20s, yeah.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.

RE: Why isn't weed legal?

It should stay illegal; I'm not anti-weed but think about it.

If weed was legalized, companies would see it as something they could make a mint out of. They'll turn weed into something which is filled with harmful, cancer causing chemicals like they did with tobacco.
The government would tax the fuck out of it. It would just turn into a way of making money basically.

I'd rather risk getting caught by the police than giving these shitty companies money to ruin my body.

RE: Why isn't weed legal?

As opposed to drug dealers who can't be regulated deciding to make a mint out of it? Brillant Plan there, only Not.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.

Why isn't weed legal?

Legalization of weed is a big deal these days...

Even when I play San Andreas, I run into it (e.g. a guy will make his username say "Legalize_Cannabis")

I've had relatives die from smoking just cigars, and this is just 5x more harmful.

I hate when people have to put some retarded username on multiplayer games.

Just because of those usernames will I target you throughout the whole damn game, screw my KD ratio.

Why isn't weed legal?

I believe it is illegal because of some of its uses.

Firstly, it helps increase the survivability in cancer. It helps chemo patients eat by giving them the "munchies", which combats the malnutrition chemo commonly causes in patients because it normally destroys their appetite. In certain types of cancers, it also disables damaged genes in certain types of tumors which reduces there growth rate or in some cases stops it completely. Also, the THC found in weed can be used to help treat AIDS, anorexia, sclerosis, tourettes, and insomnia. As such a miracle of nature, it would take away millions or maybe even billions of dollars from the medical industry that would normally be found in expensive medications to help treat the above conditions and many many others.

Secondly, juices found in weed can easily be turned into a cheap and renewable source of clean burning fuel. It would be much more efficient and could completely replace fossil fuels. Obviously, this would utterly destroy the oil industry. Less money going into oil industry = less profits = less money in government pockets.

Lastly, weed would be nearly impossible to tax, unlike alcohol or tobacco. It can be grown anywhere and everywhere with little to no effort. The government would have no way to keep people from growing weed in their basements and selling it, tax free, on the open market.

In short, its all about the money, and the legalization of weed would hurt a lot of industries.
