It has been called many things, Pot, Ganga, Reefer. What ever you choose to call it, those who enjoy smoking it know that it can make a world of difference for many reasons. It can enhance your mood, it can slow the passage of time and allow your mind to stop and think. The "na" sayer"s of the mind wish to lure you away from kindness, love, tolerance. But then you take a puff of this smoke, every one of those mean, nasty and horrible gremlins will run and hide. Thoughts of absolute euphoria and peace only last for a few hours, then back to normality.
Some have called marijuana a gateway drug. That means they think that you will try other things to get an even better "high". However, a true pothead knows better than to go for the "man made stuff". Nature provide us with all we need for a happy and healthy life.
There is a "whopping huge" difference between a hippie and a pothead. While hippies have shown us the way to salvation, they themselves have obliterated their mind with the "man made stuff". The idea behind getting "stoned" is not to get stupid, but to find your inner voice.
No one back in the "60's" would have believed that it would be legal. Research over the last 20 years has shown that the medicinal properties are undeniable. Cancer patients can hardly eat, they can hardly move due to great body pains and they some times loose hope. That is why "weed" is medicine, it does not just relieve symptoms, it allows your body a fighting chance.
The word medicine has been thrown around and turned upside down. The "Hippocratic Oath" is taken by doctors as a promise to patients that they will help in any way they can. Sadly, so many doctors have not fulfilled their obligation to cure. The "oath" stats that no matter where you are from, no matter who you are, whether you are poor or wealthy "I" will help you "my child".
The word "drug" has also been misused. If you just mangle your hand in a meat grinder, Morphine is the best. Alcohol is great as an anti-septic and a shot of whiskey once a week has been proven to increase lifespan. Amphetamines (speed) are used in China because of long work hours and focus that is needed. A Coca leaf will sooth even the worst toothache. However, overdoses and awful withdraws follow these drugs like a dog on a leash and that's what you become.
Marijuana is the only drug that can be used recreationaly, free from becoming a "junkie". You will more than likely pass out or die of smoke inhalation before you overdose. The only withdraw symptoms associated with weed would be your own inability to cope with your surroundings. Pain "killers" aren't just addiction prone because of the drug, it is because not having pain is more addicting..
I dare, I really truly honestly and earnestly triple dog dare any billionaire out there to be the one to sponsor Peace. Could you imagine the power 7 billion people could have with one united thought...
