Marijuana is good for having a good physique.

http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/smoke-pot-thin-article-1.1345812

Smoking marijuana = being thinner. Drinking alcohol = getting fatter.

Which do you want to be: fatter or thinner?

Everyone knows crappy youtube videos about the health benefits of smoking pot are the highest form of evidence you can get.

Hey now, as long as he makes a chain of like 10 unbroken posts of them and starts reminding us that alcohol is the devil and makes you so fat you die it's all good.

Seriously though, HE'S DOING IT AGAIN! FFS!

Here you go, man:

(TIME.com) -- Toking up may help marijuana users to stay slim and lower their risk of developing diabetes, according to the latest study, which suggests that cannabis compounds may help in controlling blood sugar.

Although marijuana has a well-deserved reputation for increasing appetite via what stoners call "the munchies," the new research, which was published in the American Journal of Medicine, is not the first to find that the drug has a two-faced relationship to weight.

Three prior studies have shown that marijuana users are less likely to be obese, have a lower risk for diabetes and have lower body-mass-index measurements. And these trends occurred despite the fact that they seemed to take in more calories.

Why? "The most important finding is that current users of marijuana appeared to have better carbohydrate metabolism than nonusers," says Murray Mittleman, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and the lead author of the study. "Their fasting insulin levels were lower, and they appeared to be less resistant to the insulin produced by their body to maintain a normal blood-sugar level."

"We found that current marijuana use is associated with lower levels of fasting insulin, lower HOMA-IR, and smaller waist circumference."

The guy in the above picture certainly isn't me. The ironic thing is, alcohol can exacerbate acne (in those who have a genetic predisposition), while marijuana does the opposite. Why? Insulin levels.

Yeah you are right, just come to work smelling like soju.

The kids will say you smell like their fathers.....

When Koreans come to our countries we should let them take stringent psychological tests every year to make sure they will fit into our societies and that they won't shoot up universities etc..

Some of the these articles are really completely sick in nature.

Marijuana is illegal in this country and alcohol isn't. Whatever opinions people have about it are irrelevant. The teacher broke the law and the terms of his contract. Rightly or wrongly Marijuana is a big no-no here. Are we really surprised that the teacher gets condemned?

Also if a teacher showed up drunk at work they would quickly lose their job.

The comment about shooting up Universities is pathetic. Have any other racial group done public shootings? Psychological tests? Are they mentally defective? You allow your own personal predjustices cloud your judgement.

The article is a hatchet job written by a clown who has little to no knowledge about what he is talking about. Perhaps he should work for the Daily Mail or Fox News.

So if I don't smoke I have to drink, if I don't drink I have to smoke?
I also have to chose between being fatter or thinner, not what I currently weigh?
Are you a low budget Facebook quizzie or something?

Of course it was meant to sound totally pathetic. Just like the article stressing for more stringent tests on foreigners is pathetic. You get the fox news thing,  but can't see the "Colbert" in what I wrote, lol.

So please don't get your knickers in a twist. Take a chill pill instead. Or have a coke and a smile.

The problem with satire is that if it is done badly it makes you look foolish. I don't think the Colbert report will be signing you up as a staff writer.

My knickers are firmly untwisted though I will probably need a shower after demeaning myself answering your diatribe.

New Korea Times article:

Following Colorado, Washington, a state with a large Korean population, became the second state to begin selling legal cannabis in early July, and Korean residents are not happy.

''Coming from Korea, we are very much educated to believe that marijuana is an illegal drug that should not be used. We're used to thinking that's it's a bad thing,'' says Janet Park, 32, of Seattle, ''so I was really surprised when I first found out that weed is going to be legal where I live. I'm living in a very different world.''


http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2014/09/116_164619.html

David Kim, an official of the Korean-American Association of Washington, says although there are ''proven benefits for marijuana usage,'' many Koreans don't relate to and approve the drug legalization as much as Americans do.

''It's a culture shock. No matter what advocates here say, for Koreans, marijuana has always been and probably always will be considered a bad drug,'' he said.

What nonsense, seeing as how weed is still freely available in the North. I bet he believes kimchi was always spicy and that Choco Pies are a Korean invention, too.

If he doesn't like America, he can always leave of course.

I at least know a few Koreans who either have smoked and love it or want to try it, so it's not as black and white as this guy makes it out to be. Of course, these people are the exception, but it's crazy to think that attitudes towards it could never change.
But how do I know what to lick and what not to lick?

This is what I was told growing up so it must be so.

The possibility of more people on the streets?

What an outrage! More people on the streets??
