Marijuana, just like cigarettes and alcohol can cause erection problems. So yes, your friend is correct. As to Viagra, yes I have heard about an increase in its use by younger folks....this is incredibly dangerous! Viagra must be prescribed by a physician and is given to men who have physical or health related issues with achieving erections. Please guys, don't take the stuff unless you really need it and a doctor prescribes take it because someone smokes weed and can't get it up is just bad business!

Since smoking pot does make you lazy, you don't excercise as much...which is the problem. Pot does not keep you from getting hard ons. Think about it...How many children were born after their parents got high and had sex.

If you think that pot will keep you from having hard ons, then you are just wrong. Some people always smoke before sex. Always.

I agree with Lance, though, about Viagra and youth. Don't take it unless you need it. And only if prescribed.
