I have smoked weed many years ago, when I was young. I have outgrown it, as many will. It is not so much that it damages the body, but it certainly scrambles the brain somewhat! However, it does have certain qualities in the easing of pain in some cases. Perhaps it should be researched more by the medical profession. And by the way, tobacco is far more addictive that marijuana!
Very good for altered states in shamanism and relaxing for meditation. The only adverse side affects from prolonged use is bronchitis, and as Brysing here said scrambled egg for brains.
Also on a lesser note it seems, in my experience, it also leaves your mental defenses down, vulnerable to psychic attack.
I find it an excellent tool, although i'm not here to provoke any to break the law being that it is not legal everywhere.
Weed is generally considered bad everywhere.
But Bob Marley (R.I.P) a reggae singer from years ago said that when he smoked it he could feel the presence of magick and he felt like he could talk to people who had passed. However he may of just been stoned dude lol :)
Just thought I would tell ya that :)

Weed, marijuana, is a drug. And like every drug, it is not the drug itself that is harmful, it is the abuse of the drug. Eating the leaf of this particular drug has a calming influence. But when it is smoked the effects are different. The first effect is a feeling of "not being here"; sometimes a feeling that the floor is above where it should be. People who smoke weed regularly refer to "the ostrich walk",because the floor can seem to be at knee level. The next effect is that of uncontrollable giggles; laughter, and laughing at nothing at all! The next stage is an overwhelming hunger, "the munchies!", you would, literally, eat anything! The next phase is sleep. The biggest danger from weed is in thinking it has no effect. Many a young man has driven a car after smoking weed; that is a disaster in the making!
Causes psychois if abused for long times with some people .But all natural herbs which include hallucnigenics are used in meditating.South American mysticism is steeped in ritual and depends largely on peoyte .It is true ,fine when not abused .It is a natural herb which nearly all natural herbs have good benifits.
