You certainly ask some pertinent questions, most of which are far from easy to answer. However, did you know that over 20% of people admitted to specialist centres for drug counselling or rehabilitation experience dagga (weed) as their primary drug problem? Many find there performance at school or work becomes poor because it affects their concentration and motivation negatively. While the proportion is relatively small, some people with certain predispositions also experience psychosis (delusions/hallucinations) from using dagga, and there are indications that dagga could 'trigger' schizophrenia in predisposed individuals. So in short, as harmless as you may believe dagga to be, a lot of research suggests that this is just not the case.
