How come anime characters almost never smoke weed? It's a harmless substance with many proven health benefits, and is used frequently by all age groups, so I don't know why it's never in anime.
>>
Most anime are set in Japan.

Japan has very strict drug laws.
>>
Japan doesn't mess around when it comes to weed. They're probably a lot more strict about drugs over there than wherever you are.

Weed is a vile, harsh drug that literally destroys lives.

Ever year, hundreds of thousands of people are killed in weed related incidents.

>>101315851
I'm not going to disagree with you, but that's why.
>>
Wait, they made a Daibanchou anime?
>>
Weed really needs to catch on in Japan. Would be far less destructive than the rampant alcoholism that salarymen have to resort to in order to stay somewhat sane. If it became the norm to sit and smoke while watching some animu after a brutal day of work Japan's suicide rate would go way down.

Weed could save the nation from it's inevitable descent into ruin.

Why? Because mommy told you "drugs are bad"? Seriously I want to know, what makes a person that makes a substance a substantial part of their life worse than a person that doesn't, assuming all other things are equal?
>>
>>101316592
From my experience, it's not just due to the law, there just isn't a stoner culture in asia.

>>101316719
Or maybe, it's simply because there are people who don't care for drugs or smoking and that they can and are able to to be just as happy without their use.

How do they know they are just as happy without their use? A lot of the people I see saying things like this have never even tried the substances in question, so how the fuck do they know they are just as happy? Just because they are happy at the moment they don't think they can be happier? Just seems like ignorant bullshit to me. Anyone given an opportunity to make their life objectively better that doesn't take it is a fool.

I'm not "as bad as the ones actively anti" because I'm not spouting blatant misinformation and regurgitated propaganda like they are. Only fact and personal experience.

Hey, here's a secret: the plural of personal anecdote is not statistical data. I can also tell you that I know people who have experimented around and decided not to continue with it because they find it more fun to be sober. What now?

EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN DAMN PREFERENCES. Stop trying to think that you know better.

Smoking ANYTHING is bad for the body. Go take some actual medic classes. Just because weed isn't as bad as cigs doesn't mean shit.

>Stoners are happier people
So? You need to get stoned to be happy others don't. People can be just as equally happy. This is scientific fact. There has been studies done to find that people from all walks of life are on average just as happy. Even a millionaire can only stay happy over being rich for a certain period of time before they adjust and therefore view their current lifestyle as norm. Meaning that in the long run, he/she is no happier or sadder than his butler. The conept applies to stoners and non-stoners.

To be honest, anime is much worse.
I'd quickly admit that I smoke weed a few times a month, do MDMA when I go out and that I've still a rather large stash of acid at home before I'd tell anyone that I'm watching anime.
>>
>>101317217
Yes, in the manga.

There's also Eden: it's an Endless World, where the cast does drugs. Probably best example.

There's weed in Kara no Kyoukai, and in one episode of Psycho-Pass some guy had a hookah in a cell.

Other than that I can't think of anything.

Although hardly the worst drug and better than many legal drugs, cannabis is hardly healthy. Most of the studies that're often repeated about it being harmless have long since been debunked and are perpetuated by people determined to keep it's image as a purely social drug without any long-term consequences. The fact of the matter is that cannabis itself has negative effects on the memory and personality functions even smoked purely, and most weed you'll find from dealers has enough carcinogens to make a cigarette blush.

Not that I think it's wrong to smoke weed if you're prepared to deal with it, but I don't make excuses about my tobacco addiction and I'm pretty tired of people making excuses for their marijuana addictions.

It doesn't matter, anon. This is always an issue when arguing with idiots so I'll address this as a general problem: it doesn't matter if an idiot thinks they're right. They think that no matter what you do. Trying to make them think otherwise is an exercise in futility. Applied to this, it also doesn't matter if they think we approve. They're idiots and will think whatever is most convenient for themselves regardless. You must remember that these are people who don't know what logical fallacies are and wouldn't understand them if they did.

I understand that you may also feel like you're being overly judgmental by thinking that these people are idiots on assumption alone. You might feel cold for not acknowledging them. Remember that it's feelings like this that are the lifeblood of interactions between stupid people and smarter people, nearly always to the misfortune of the latter. Without acknowledging those, they wouldn't be validated and maybe would try to improve themselves. As is, they get all the gratification they need. Don't encourage them. Instead, ignore them. That's my advice.

This rule is implied in all regards. e.g. If I do not know that someone is X then I cannot judge them for it. Pragmatically, then, unknowns are irrelevant where they would only affect perceptions. I would certainly like to know if someone smokes pot ahead of time, though, because they would almost surely be and idiot. If I knew ahead of time, I could just ignore them and save time.

I don't really understand why you thought it was necessary to explain this like you did because it just outs you as an idiot more than anything else. Of course, this is me pretending to not see that you're explaining that not all pot smokers are idiots, which is an ironic way of telling you that you're wrong. I felt I had to point that out because you're an idiot and wouldn't know otherwise.

There're hundreds of articles on the dangers of cannabis too, I chose one since a source was asked for.

If anyone wants to link a study supporting marijuana as healthy then I'll gladly read through it, whether or not it's healthy has no effect on my life since I intend to die of lung cancer other ways instead. As far as I recall though, every source of marijuana being healthy I've read was either obviously written by a stoner or quickly debunked by a different source.
>>
>>101318109
Degenerate? How dare you! I'll have you know that there are hundreds of studies showing that caffeine is, in fact, healthy. Smoking coffee has no negative impact on health whatsoever. It's impossible to overdose on coffee, contrary to popular belief, even when injected. I know that the snorting of coffee has come under ridicule as of late but know that this is merely another very safe delivery method of caffeine. You should really stop drinking water, though. Did you know that water is a fluid that houses dangerous aquatic life in some places in the world? It's true! So think twice next time you turn on the tap or you may be eaten by a shark.
>>
>>101318052

Which really doesn't even stand, so I don't know why you'd choose to bring it up. Unless you're paraphrasing, which I think you are for the sake of not making the RCP look like total idiots, there's no way urban weed has more carcinogens than cigarettes, or we would already see the effects. And so far, not one case of cancer has been linked to the use of marijuana.

Plenty of opposition has been debunked, and if they make claims like this, I can see why.

I don't smoke pot, but the thread certainly interests me simply because I don't really EVER see drugs in anime. which is weird, since some of the best plots in western television often have to do with them. and there's anything else in anime and manga, much more often. sex, adolescence, organized crime, law enforcement, action/adventure, even mystery sometimes.

>>101318360
The point I'm trying to make in that post isn't that cannabis is more dangerous than tobacco, it's that one source against it is better than the lack of source for it being provided here.

I can quickly google up "cancer caused by cannabis" and immediately find a study correlating them.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-146853/Why-cannabis-greater-cancer-risk-tobacco.html

There for example.

I can also make the case that deaths caused by cancer are attributed to carcinogens more often than they are to any specific source of them, and that if someone did die as a result of heavy cannabis use, it's likely it'd be blamed on the similar amount of tobacco they use regardless of which had a heavier effect.

I don't know how well I'm selling it but all I'm trying to say is that unless someone's going to give me an argument with any citation in favour of cannabis more reliable than the one RCP is giving me against it, regardless of how unreliable that source might be, I am inclined to believe that cannabis is bad for you.

Many excellent athletes use steroids. Proper cycles have little to no negative effects.
Many driven and ambitious successful people use cocaine.
Shrooms and salvia is good for seeing something new with no harm to your body. No synthetic shit.
Fine blends of tobacco can be appreciated just like a fine wine.

Alcohol and painkillers self-explanatory.
I agree ecstasy is bordering on unacceptable, should've listed it lower.

>It was a den of evil I walked into, the urine that wafted in the air was overpowered only by the smell of the drugs that these pissers had before their bladders failed them. All things considered, it wasn't that bad. This was my scene, a little shitstorm brewin' in /a/, no worse at the moment than a Kill la Kill thread, or the seasonal waifu-wars. I strolled through the halls, watching moralfags argue with the drugfags across from them. I couldn't tell the difference between the ones who were trolls and the ones who had passion, I didn't like them all the same.

But then I saw her, a chain of letters with numbers shoved in-between, the little lower-cased name that set her apart from the rest. An exclamation mark parked in-between them. A tripfag. Now, most hated tripfags of any sort, but in my experiences I'd never found them to be any worse than the average anon, short of some misguided attempt to stand out. But her lips parted, and they whispered words I didn't ever want to hear.

I bolted out of the thread, grabbing my jacket and a pack of smokes from the corner of a desk as I left. How could someone say Naruto was better than One Piece? Bleach, sure, Bleach is shit. But to think that a pile of rat-faced sparkly ninjas had more heart than Luffy and his crew? Did they not read Alabasta? Surely they aren't following the current arc.

just because it does the thing you take it for doesn't mean there aren't negs. even if that wasn't horrifically wrong, it's cheating, dumbass. not everyone wants to poison their body, but if culturally steroids were as okay as you'd like, sports would become a "poison your body or don't compete". cycling is a perfect example of a sport where that's already taken place. you can't be an honestly good cyclist right now. the top 22 or something like that all use steroids illegally.
salvia can also harm your body. natural =/= good for you dumbass. and just because somebody is driven or successful does not excuse their cocaine habit, nor does it attribute their success to it. cocaine is addictive and unhealthy. and nicotine isn't the only ingredient of a cigarette that kills you slowly. not to mention, wine is also a poison, and not an apt comparison, stupid.
alcohol and painkillers aren't self explanatory. alcohol can be addictive and it's been ruining lives for years, though I don't think it should be illegal. pain killers can also hurt you if not taken properly and when necessary.
if your only excuse for so many of these drugs is that you can live with them, then why aren't you as okay with lsd or weed? they're only going to do as much harm as shrooms or salvia, or alcohol. it sounds like prejudice to me.

You can minimize harmful effects to your body through a well-researched cycle. Steroids like anavar are quite safe. Tiny ran anavar if I remember. And I wasn't advocating for its legalization, just what's acceptable in terms of how it affects your lifestyle.

Salvia isn't harmful and nobody trips on it regularly just due to its nature. Cocaine, nicotine, and alcohol affects lifestyle very little, you can consume all these and go straight back to work. Lines of coke in between work breaks are common in industries like rigging where you work 12 hours straight. Europeans go have beers during their work breaks too, and something like wine is a staple of French diet.

Painkillers are fine for people who have trauma and want to let off for a while.

Weed directly affects your lifestyle. Since it's such a socially accepted drug, people smoke it frequently and it drains their ambition, makes them lazy, impotent, dulls their mental faculties. You get high then sit on the couch and watch a shitty movie wasting your time for hours, and eating disgusting food. If you snorted cocaine you could actually do some work. It's harmful because it's considered "acceptable".

whether it effects someone's lifestyle isn't factual, it's relative to the person and varies. Some people smoke pot and maintain healthy work habits, other people drink and it destroys their family. what you can bet on is
a) physical addictiveness
and
b) physical detriment
in which case weed isn't nearly as bad as say, alcohol, nicotine, cocaine, tobacco, steroids, pain killers, or nearly anything else. You're prejudice against the culture, and learning to separate what is definite and what is relative is the one thing making you so disagreeable.
it's about can, but not always will.

The only realistic instance of drug use I've seen in animu was in Legendary Gambler Tetsuya.
There was 4-episode arc about a mahjong gambler named Innami who was a hiropon (meth) addict, which led him to being in utter shit physical shape and constantly being desperate to get more of the drug, leading him to try killing his old friend the MC on one occasion and then striking a deal with a drug runner. He'd also cough out blood and get the shakes because it was stated that he was already weak even when healthy.
The last that the MC ever sees of him is a trail of blood wandering into the snow.

It's pretty sad and hard portrayal of addiction, those episodes would also end with pic related.

You're being too quixotic; on paper it's one thing, in concrete it's another.
Promiscuity on paper isn't harmful, yet promiscuous people often carry many bad traits. Getting a tramp stamp isn't harmful on paper, yet culturally it is.
Weed, when permeated with modern culture, is very harmful.

You can smoke weed if you want. I don't really care.

I just smoked some weed, then I saw the thread and I immediately regretted my decision.

You forgot the fact that the drug made him into one of the best Mahjong players.

>What's wrong with glorifying it though?

Because people who do, end up as annoying little shits like you are who can't do anything in their lives without smoking up.

Basically you're the same as the weebs that peruse Gaia.

That was his own pre-developed skill though, the meth just got him going through full games since normally he was physically and mentally incapable of it. That was why he started doing the drugs in the first place too.

I'm still disappointed that his cheating technique with the black tiles wasn't explained though.
>>
>>101320446
It's obvious.
He memorized every tile, just like he did with the bamboo tiles, that's why he lost the first game.
>>

But you can't memorize tiles without carving some markers on their backs or something (there was a name for this technique but I forgot what it was), which he might have done but we weren't shown. Otherwise he'd need to memorize the very thin scratches and shit at the backs of the tiles, and those may not even exist in a fresh mahjong set, and are visible only from certain angles anyway.

Fingerprints, mate.
That's why the color black was such a bad choice.

Anime is mostly made for children and pedophiles. They don't smoke.

That was his explanation but then they said it was bullshit. Unless he was doing a double ruse.
>>

>they said it was bullshit
Because they couldn't think of it as possible.

This reminded me of Stu Ungar.

This guy maybe? I think it's implied at least.

So does all of Asia hate weed or just Japan?
