Studies on Spiders show the dangers of Drugs Like Marijuana (Very cool Video)
ChicoER Gate | 5/22/10 | Chuck Wolk

Posted on 05/22/2010 11:45:56 AM PDT by OneVike



As I told you a few weeks ago, this November the voters of California will decide whether or not marijuana should be legalized or not. In the article, Legalizing Marijuana, So Politicians Can Spend More Money, I gave my reasons for being against the initiative. After all, the last thing we need to do in California is feed the drug habit of politicians by giving them another product to tax millions of dollars on for their already failed programs. That's right, tax dollars is just as addictive to politicians as crack cocaine is to those caught in it's web of short term euphoria. History has shown us that if a politician just smells tax revenue that they will break as many laws as a drug addict to get their fix.
 
Well there was a scientific study done a few years back on the effects of certain drugs on spiders, and the results were astonishing. What they discovered was that different drugs had different effects on the way the spiders created their webs. The results from these types of studies should help convince those still on the fence about the dangers behind legalizing drugs, even marijuana.
 
Now this video has been out for anyone willing to watch it for a few years now.  So some of you may have already seen it, but for those who have not, I guarantee you will enjoy it.

This is your spider’s brain. This is your spider’s brain on drugs. Any questions?

Sheesh.

It looks like caffine is more dangerous.

Where is the drunk spider's web or was that spider too busy picking a fight in a bar or running down an pedestrian with his car to build a web?

This is goofier than Al Gore and his rising seas.

You really need to watch the video to really understand how marijuana is actually the worst drug. The spider that had THC given to it, ended up with the worse fate of all.

I remember seeing that informative video. Many of the chemical compounds in recreational drugs have similar effects on other creatures.

That one tried to start a fight with THC spider, tore down half his web, and died.

What was the given equivalence to a human? Was the given “dose” of each “drug” comparable to what a human would normally ingest? Or was it like the so-called cancer tests, where the given amount is 10,000 times what a person would take, even over the course of a lifetime?

NO, if you watch the video, you will find out that the spider on THC, was too stoned to really build a web. Instead he built a hammock. Then come winter time he ended up moving into the gangstas web and became his crack bitch.

Thus proving marijuana leads to harder drugs and a wasted life.

You really need to watch the video.

Sorry. Ain't buying it. Who cares if some stoner screws himself up? That "individual responsibility" thing kicks in.

Time was that the tribe member who toked up and got eaten by the bear was a benefit to the gene pool, if for no other reason than as an object lesson. Besides, pot heads seldom get into fights. Something boozers might consider...

They are both equally useless, but think of the advantages of all those libs, who smoke anyhow, having a cheap, unlimited supply! They'll be trying to vote on Thursday or Friday... Teachers will nod off in class and perhaps even get a nasty letter.

The teen aged children of baked, liberal parents will walk into traffic, or walk away in disgust and become useful members of society. Mexican drug runners will have to get real jobs, or go back to picking California grapes.

Tell me again where the downside is?

Humans aren’t spiders, last time I checked. Do spiders spend time writing philosophy, or recording music, or making art? Do we all have to be as efficient as computers all the time? I notice the authors didn’t include beer. (and no I do NOT smoke pot)

Yea, I understand now. You have me convinced.

Hey, why don't we just legalize all drugs alright?

Heroin, cocaine, LSD, GHB, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, phencyclidine (PCP), Opium, tripelennamine (PBZ), and other drugs that many use for recreational purposes that really only effect the user.

NOT!

So what happens to the spiders when they are on liberalism?

Do they go to the other webs, take part of them and give them to the ants?

And what happens to their webs, are there thousands of strands leading to nowhere with thousands of other spiders stand on each strand spewing regulations for travelling down the strand.....

What what?

a few years back...

Try like almost fifty years ago when the first account of dosing spiders and observing their webs was detailed in the TIME-LIFE science and nature encyclopedia popular in the early 1960's.

I'm calling Shenanigans!

(Because it's all BS) Humans are not spiders, and web building in spiders is an instinct, not a cognitive function. Why use spiders when there are already exhaustive studies of the effects of marijuana in humans?

Eventually, for the heavy pot smoker, the 'high' that they receive from the drug will gradually diminish. This is where studies have shown that the user will attempt to either find more potent marijuana to smoke, or just move onto stronger more dangerous drugs like cocaine, or even heroin.

Sounds like a quote from a 1950's educational film, like the ones I had to watch in Jr. High School.
