To be honest, I have a son that smokes pretty regular, and I get a first hand experience of how it can make some people very negative to the outside world. My philosophy in life is that if you cannot do without it 90% of your time, then you have serious problem with reality.
It's the same with alcohol, people use the shit not to socialise and to have a one off experience, but to get smashed out of their heads, and all this crap of music sound better, is of course all in the mind.
Dealing with life is first priority and if you cannot do that, you shouldn't be indulging, other than that i have nothing else against it.
I think it's sad that people have to try to escape life in general, and I've seen far too many wasters in my life, that i avoid them like the plague.
Some people do get creative inspiration on it, so it does have some good points too. It's a matter of priorities and responsibilities first.
Though I suspect that, some people are susceptible too psychosis, and they should stay well away from it, it does have dangers and the statistics have been around long enough to prove that.
Not to forget, that probably all those poor suicide bombers, have had sufficient to induce them into killing mode. In the ME it is known as the assassin for a reason. as it either makes you paranoid or fearless, with no sense of reason, you just do it.
At least with alcohol, the reaction time creeps up on you more slowly, that all of a sudden you are pissed, and too inebriated to do anything. After a joint your on some sort of a schizophrenic ego trip, and people see the difference. That introvert becomes a pain in the arse for example and that extrovert becomes a bigger pain in the arse.
Sad that people have to do it and drag others down with them
as it's all about cashing in on an illegal substance. Is it really worth the jail time ?
My son should know he's been nicked 5 times and serves him right, he also prefers it to alcohol, i have no sympathy, if they cannot handle acohol which is approved by some governments, then it's just tough s--t. Do the crime you do the time, and it screws your CV good and proper if caught..
I mean we have to be reasonable here, the world is full of addicts. So they have a problem, and cannot face their problem. Those that are not addicted are probably just okay with the odd one now and then. Plague
and pests can destroy your children ask some of the families that have to suffer their children stealing from them for their fix.
Why am I suddenly thinking of Blade Runner
