odd, first off, you can't OD and die if you use too much weed; the worst thing that'll happen is that you'll either eat too much and/or pass out. You'll feel tired for a bit but there's no nasty hangover like with booze. This is from 2003, but there have been many studies that suggest cannabis can kill various types of cancer cells while protecting "regular" cells
Just search for "cannabis cancer" or something of that nature and you will find tons of articles about weed's anticancer properties.
THC is far from the only cannabinoid in weed; the combination(s) of cannabinoids in pot, namely indica-dominant strains, are very good for pain relief/anti-inflammatory effects. If cannabis were legal and regulated in all states(and throughout the rest of the world), it would be even safer since ideally, there would be strict purity regulations. There is a LOT of ridiculous propaganda about weed, especially from the DEA/federal government in general; it's been known for a very ling time that cannabis is infinitely safer than alcohol on every level. Smoking is the issue, and instead of demonizing this medically valuable plant, people should be educated about it. For example, it's obviously better for you to use a vaporizer/eat it to avoid smoking risks, and different strains have very different effects. Sativa dominant strains tend to give people a more psychedelic, energetic high while Indica-based strains are incredibly relaxing and great for anxiety relief.
The indica-dominant varieties tend to be more useful medically because of high percentages of CBD and other useful cannabinoids. There is absolutely no reason for weed to be illegal. It's a travesty that people actually go to prison and have permanent criminal records for possessing or selling weed. Personally, weed is the only substance that prevents my awful temper from flaring up, and unlike benzos like Valium, Klonopin etc, it's not very physically addictive. Some people have ZERO WD after long term weed use, and the only symptoms I had were lack of appetite/slight grumpiness for a week. Benzodiazepine withdrawl can cause seizures and even death much like alcohol.
Weed is very useful medically and it's safer than all commonly prescribed drugs that people use for the problems I mentioned. I'm sure I missed other good medical applications for weed, like nausea(best stomach medicine on Earth), and you won't suffer nasty withdrawal even after long term use. I see no problem with recreational use either, especially if it's vaporized or eaten. If you don't smoke it, weed is as close to harmless as you can get.
EDIT: I haven't been talking about ZSNES itt because it will probably be several years before a new version gets released. I would like to hear from devs about their vision/the future of ZSNES. Current ZSNES is very outdated but still fun to use, so I hope the eventual new version is very accurate while still maintaining its excellent speed. Some speed would probably need to be sacrificed for accuracy, but maybe like BSNES there could be custom settings for either more speed or more accuracy. Shader support along with more graphical filters in general would be awesome as well. I love the xBR filters; they make bilinear filtering unnecessary, especially some of the 5xBR shaders. FinalBurn Alpha has some xBR settings as well and they make old arcade games look amazing on HD monitors.
EDIT: lol, I thought this shit got deleted rather than moved.
