I had a dorm mate in college once who stridently argued that pot made people smarter, and that the government therefore outlawed it because the government didn't want to have to deal with a bunch of supra-geniuses.

I think I read that people remember things learned in an alternate state of consciousness far better when they're in that state. Therefore if you studied while stoned, then you might do better if you got high for the test.

I think it's sad that people take drugs so they can escape reality or the need to feel "enhanced" for whatever reason.

That said, I did try it a couple of times, and the one time that I was actually "high" (and didn't puke) I was pointing my finger at passing cars while giggling like an idiot. Basically I compared that feeling to being dunk with the difference that there was a craving for sweets afterwards.

Marijuana and Studying - can't give you any first hand advice there but quite honestly, it sounds like a stupid idea to me.

No offense intended Claws, but the automatic labeling of people as "trying to escape reality" is a main reason the anti-drug crowd doesn't get taken seriously. It just sounds like they are trying to be insulting, that or they simply don't know what they're talking about.

And why is wanting to escape from reality a sad thing, through drugs or otherwise?

It depends on the nature of the escape. Some people watch a movie. Some people drink themselves catatonic. Some people blow a fattie. Some people shoot smack. Some people climb a clock tower and shoot a dozen people. Some of those options are okay, some are sad, some are flat out unacceptable.

To a person that is comfortable in reality, it comes off as insulting. Some people do things like weed or alcohol just for the feeling, it doesn't mean they are escaping reality. FFS I often do my bills while I'm having a drink, it's not in any was an escape. If a person were to label me as trying to escape reality, I would find it insulting, and see it as if they are trying to pinpoint a weakness.

If a person IS trying to escape reality, then that's their own business, but lumping everyone that drinks or whatever as "trying to escape reality" is akin to lumping them all together as addicts.

Here's the thing: you literally can't escape reality with marijuana.

Marijuana is actually a part of reality.

Take my word for it-if you smoke pot-yes-it does expand your concious.
MAYBE.
Because when you sober up-you cant descibe or figure out wtf you thought when you were high.
So whats the sense? Unless you wanna walk around your whole life stoned-it's a fleeting feeling. And no one wants to be around someone who is stoned all the time.
So youll end up lonley...and poor without a job...because I know for a dam FACT-pot makes you lazy-lay around-listen to music-zone out on cartoons.
Pot dont make you smart.It make you think your smart.

Word. We have a stoner at work and its always easy to see that he smoked a joint right before work: that "I know everything - you guys know nothing" grin, bloodshot red eyes and constant food craving.

When the pot wears off he gets hyper and agitated.  BounceGiggle
