    Anybody who has ever tried the Atkins, low-carbohydrate, or any other form of non-sugar diet should understand that sugar has a much higher impact on our lives than most people might think. We’ve all heard from one expert to the next that excess sugar is responsible for many illnesses, diseases, and conditions. That started me thinking…

    Has anybody ever compared the effects of marijuana to that of sugar?

    I couldn’t find anything from a brief search, so I thought I would compile a quick list of effects through Google searches. It was extremely difficult to find a comprehensive list of pros and cons for marijuana that isn’t biased one way or the other, but I found several for sugar. The pros list for marijuana consists of positive benefits mentioned by proponents of legalization, the cons list consists of government issued “facts” (mainly to pad the cons list out a little…). I intentionally selected a source that the opponents would consider to be a valid and comprehensive resource.

    After compiling these two lists, I’m left wondering why everybody’s comparing marijuana with alcohol and tobacco. Let’s get a study put together than comprehensively compares marijuana with sugar!

    What do you think?

    Pros:

    Marijuana:
    Euphoria
    May increase appetite
    Promotes relaxation
    Reduces nausea
    Pain relief
    May increase concentration
    Psychoactive reaction
    Bronchial passages relax

    Sugar:
    Sweet flavor
    Increased energy
    Increased mood



    Withdrawal Symptoms:

    Marijuana – Effects may last from 1 – 45 days (couldn’t find anything definite)
    (NIDA - Publications - NIDA Notes - Vol. 17, No. 3 - Research Findings)
    (Researchers identify symptoms of marijuana withdrawal | HarvardScience)
    Headache
    Depressed mood
    Irritability
    Craving
    Restlessness
    Anger
    Anxiety
    Lack of appetite
    Strange dreams

    Sugar – Effects may last 1 – 2 weeks
    (Sugar Withdrawal Symptoms-Don't Let Them Stop You From Kicking Your Sugar Habit)
    Headache
    Depression
    Irritability
    Cravings
    Drowsiness
    Fatigue
    Skin eruptions
    Mucus
    Throat discomfort
    Flu-like symptoms



    Cons:

    WOW! That was a lot of work! Very interesting stuff though! My Stepfather is on a diet to help deal with liver cancer, and one of the main things is to avoid sugar at all costs. I think I need to cut back on MY sugar intake after looking at this! Thanks for the effort!

    Hopefully over time you will be able to get it down to the hard facts, and get rid of the "May Cause" in favor of the "Does" or "Does Not" items. But as it stands, it is very interesting to see it laid out like that. You could toss in the added catagory of artificial sweetener. Even sugar looks good compared to that shite!

    Refined sugar is far more dangerous to a persons health than refined cannabis.

    Sugar from corn (High fructose corn syrup) plays a huge role in both the Diabetes and Obesity epidemic.

    Sugar is a necessary component for human life, but our body systems have evolved to consume small amounts of sugar at a time through fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

    Standard American diet should be considered poison. Quite frankly I am amazed that our body is so robust that it is even able to extract nutrients from the manufactured shit we call food.

    Unfortunately, I simply don't have the time to really put together a totally comprehensive list. Heck, I don't even have time to go through and confirm the validity of each of the claims on the list!

    @nornerator - Thanks for the input on refined sugar and corn syrup. I agree with your post 100%. I was actually considering comparing specifically to refined sugars, but decided to leave it at the basics.

    @Gee - I definitely agree that lung cancer and many of the others should be stricken from that list. However, I specifically chose to take info from a site that the opposition might use in trying to prove their case. I even broke some categories, like cancer, into the different kinds of cancer in order to make the cons list as long as possible. Even so, it still doesn't hold a candle to the Sugar list!

    As a dietetic student, I just want to point out the "Cons" for sugar ONLY pertain to excess sugar (however, a lot of us eat too much). Do not be afraid of fruit, please, pleaaase. :)

    Tokin' Talker New Member

    @ nibbles - I knew that sugar (or carbohydrates) is needed by the body in some form, mainly from the arguments by opponents of low-carb diets, but I couldn't find any decent information on it. Do you have more to add to the Pro's list for Sugar or know what the definition of "excess" is, pertaining to sugar? I seriously couldn't find any Pro's... anywhere. Had to make them up for this list :p


    @ everyone-
    I think I'm going to take back my previous statement that I don't have time to compile a comprehensive list. I find myself spending more time researching on this stuff than care to admit. So if you have links to prove or disprove anything on the lists above, please post 'em here. Also, if there's anything that you think should be on the lists above, please post 'em here.

    After making the realization that sugar is more dangerous than marijuana, I've been getting more and more angry about the current marijuana laws. All of the primary arguments by the opponents are based solely on the belief that marijuana is dangerous and they want to keep it away from kids. It's a safe bet that those same people wake up every morning, pour a bowl of a sugar filled cereal like Frosted Flakes, slide it in front of their kids, and, after a kiss on the forehead, they start spooning sugar into their coffee.

    None of it makes any sense!

    Well, there should be no pro's for white refined sugar other than personal pleasure. There is simply no reason to eat it since we can get our sugars from complex carbohydrates like bread, or from food that has natural sugar like fruits (vegetables too). We need to consume at least 100 grams of carbohydrates per day (which break down to simpler sugars) to fuel our brains.
    But we do eat extra sugar and sugar makes damn good baked goods... so we go on to figure out how much sugar is too much.
    The USDA estimates that Americans eat 20 teaspoons of added sugar a day (this is not including fruits or other foods with natural sugar, this is only talking about straight-up sugar from sweet drinks, baked goods, etc). For reference, A 12 ounce Pepsi contains 10 teaspoons of sugar. So I'm going to have to say eating more than 20 teaspoons of added sugar a day is "too much", even though it is an average, and I would encourage people to try to eat as little added sugar as possible. But hell, I like brownies too. Just don't over do it.
    As for Marijuana versus Excess Sugar, it's HANDS DOWN a win for marijuana. I say "excess" because, obviously, sugar is necessary in our diets, so if you're eating a healthful diet you should already be getting enough sugars/carbs from fruits and vegetables. You should probably specify "excess" in your OP so nobody gets scared of all sugar and goes on the Atkins XD

    The only "pro" that you could keep, just to -have- one on the list, would be "fast energy". Technically you don't get any more energy from sugar than you do any other food, the difference is that sugar is metabolized very fast and there is an immediate boost of energy as opposed to eating something with no sugar. :)
    I don't think there is any proof about sugar improving mood either. ;)

    Sorry for such a long and boring post, I really like stuff like this.

    Thats just wrong eh? Sugars in everything two! How sad. Marijuana for me has saved my life. Yes, you can become dependant on the plant, but dont you with anything else?!!! Food for example! Lol. you gotta have a reason to smoke the stuff, if no reason, you probably will loss you ambition and watch tv all day.

    But MJ#23 has save my life, for medical reasons though. You can drink it in tintures, eat the stuff with cannabutter, even vapor which is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Simple sugars (monsaccharides) are what you got watch out for. Glucose, Fructose etc are all simple sugars. They are easily created by gently heating complex sugars (polysaccharides) to break the hydrogen bonds joing monosaccharides.

    Complex sugars are part of the Carbohydrate family of compounds. They are everywhere, from Crab/Lobster shells to fibers in wood.

    Sugar is a poison, experts say

    Over the past year, I have been researching the effects of sugar, particularly high fructose corn syrup, on the onset of type 2 diabetes.
    I have posted a few links, three of which are scientific journal articles that I will briefly summarize.

    But first, let's talk about THC and brain cancer. THC kills a rapid-growing form of brain cancer (see links).

    Now, let's talk about sugar.

    In one article, researchers tested the effect of high glucose on muscle-derived stem cells, which are found between the muscle fibers, and which has the ability to turn into any type of connective tissue such as muscle, collagen, even adipose tissue (fat). They say muscle doesn't turn to fat? Well, the stem cells within the muscle tissue of mice turned into fat when in the presence of high glucose. Whats amazing is that sugar, itself, acted as a signal to "tell the cells" to turn into fat.

    In the other article, which I find very disturbing, is that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) activates the transcription factor, NF-kappa-B in the liver of mice. NF-kappa-B is a regulator of the immune system, but is disregulated in many disease processes involved in inflammation. NF-kappa-B target genes are also upregulated in old-age, but inhibiting NF-kappa-B extends lifespan.

    In the mice, HFCS activated NF-kappa-B and caused inflammation of the liver. Inflammation of the liver leads to hardening of the arteries because the liver's ability to produce bile is hindered. Under normal conditions, the liver draws cholesterol out of the blood to make bile salts that aid in digestion. But, since the liver isn't pulling cholesterol out of the blood due to inflammation, the cholesterol sticks to the arteries and causes plaque formation, which hardens the walls of the arteries and causes hypertension, among other diseases. Hypertension causes heart disease, etc. and the strange part that I haven't figured out is that either hypertension, or the hardening of the arteries, leads to diabetes by some process involved in the thickening of the basement membrane in the pancreas islet cells, which release insulin. Diabetes is a feed-forward cycle, because not only does increase fat and athersclerosis lead to diabetes, but diabetes leads to increase in yet more fat and artherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). It's a viscious cycle of disease.

    HFCS is found everywhere. Most ketchups are loaded HFCS, same with "healthy" yogurts (especially store-brands like great-value). I believe it is used to control as a form of population control. Most of the food that poor people buy contain HFCS. Most of the diseases of western civilization are related to diet.

    I'm just curious did you consider breaking out the cons section for marijuana to compare them againist the different consumption methods? I'm sure vaporization/edible methods of consuming MJ would knock off a couple of the cons you have listed.

    Thank you all for the great comments and information! As I mentioned in an earlier post, time is a precious commidity in my life that is continuously forced to be spent on one thing or another. I haven't forgotten this thread and I do still intend to make that list more comprehensive and as accurate and fair as possible.

    Actually, this thread is far from one-sided. The terminology used between "may" and "can" were taken directly from the sources where they were found (the DEA website and the best list I could find showing the dangers of Sugar). I've added every negative aspect possible to the Cons list of Marijuana, specifically to represent the worst case scenario arguments by the opposition of legalization. Many of those cons have been recently dis-proven, strongly disputed, or is outright not applicable if the marijuana (or cannabis, if you prefer) is not smoked.

    If there's anything beyond the terminology of "may" vs "can" that makes this thread one-sided, please let me know. If there's any pros or cons for either marijuana or sugar that do not appear on that list, please let me know. Being open, honest, and fair is exactly what I'm trying to achieve with this thread.

    I personally think that sugar vs marijuana is a comparison that should definitely be a mainstream realization and a part of the argument for legalization. If danger is going to be the platform that opponents are going to use to keep it illegal, let's examine something that everybody, worldwide, uses on a daily basis that is far more dangerous. Forget tobacco and alcohol... we give sugar to children of all ages.



    At the moment, I'm thinking that once I'm satisfied that the list is complete, fair, and accurate, I'll write up an article to go along with the data and send it around to some newspapers, NORML, NPR, and probably some officials. Perhaps somebody will pick it up and help bring it more to the mainstream. And perhaps it will be totally ignored and left untouched.

    :shrugs: We do what we can.



    I have definitely considered breaking the marijuana cons list up by consumption methods and the final version will likely do just that. Unfortunately, I don't have much information on the use, effectiveness, or reduction of danger when vaporizing compared to smoking. I understand that the basic concept behind vaporizing is to heat the cannabis to the point where the THC is turned to vapor, leaving the plant material unburnt. This theoretically prevents or significantly reduces inhalation of the potentially cancer causing chemicals and tar that reside in plant material, but how effective is that in practice?

    I've read many suggestions for vaporizing by posters here on the site, but it's very difficult to know if they know their stuff or if they just happen to sell vaporizer's for a living.

    The article that I intend to write will probably stick to comparing sugar to eaten marijuana, since that is the method of consumption. However, I do wonder how smoked marijuana might compare to smoked refined sugar or smoked High Fructose Corn Syrup. ;)

    bro, i toke too. i'm not trying to go against you here... but be HONEST man. do you believe this? "we give sugar to children of all ages" ... yeah, and that gets them happy and hyper and that's life man, I was raised on a lot of sugary stuff, i turned out alright... you wana be the one to smoke out a 6 year old?

    Don't just sugar coat your words and say something in this OH-SO-ONE-SIDED forum, i'm sorry but when someone blatantly does something like this, it pisses me off.

    Whether you like it or not, sugar is far safer than marijuana. lol

    EDIT: sorry if it SEEMED like i bashed on that one sentence of yours, I didn't mean to.. i was just being lazy;
    may means "WILL CAUSE"... and can means "under certain situations/maybe long term"

    I'm not bashing on YOU for saying can vs may ... i'm not saying anything like you put those words there... i'm saying it makes 0 sense to compare a "can" and "may" in that context... as we all know, those withdrawal symptoms are felt by all of us when talking about marijuana, and sugar... not so much... honestly, it applies to like a fat 5% of USA.
