I don't know if i'm still half asleep, but this part doesn't make sense. Already been knocked off what? Getting high off weed has never happened? What?Musicmac wrote:¡Funny how smoking and drinking excessively have already been knocked off but getting high off weed has never happened despite the fact that Psychology teaches you exactly what it can do to you.
From a dealer. Dealers come in all kinds and flavors. Mine is a buddy from school, he doesn't do backalley deals, nor is he involved with the mafia in any way, he's simply a rasta man who grows his own crops. There ARE shady individuals and you need to be careful, though.Musicmac wrote:How exactly do you even purchase the stuff anyways?
I want it legalized because my people are being killed, abducted and raped because of it not being allowed to be sold and traded. Legalization would effectively remove any and all causes for the violence regarding the trade of the drug for various reasons i will not elaborate on because i'd have to think a lot how to word them in english and frankly it won't mean anything anyway. If only the government could stop being the USA's "yes man" for ONE second. If only.RuffDraft wrote:Could you guys explain to me what the appeal of this stuff is? Even if I don't ever try it, I'd like to understand what it is you guys like about it and why you think it should be legalized.
Seriously i smoked a tobacco cigar once, that shit is truly breathing poison. I could NEVER stomach it, it felt so wrong, so toxic, nothing like weed. weed smoke is so light, so easy on the lungs, so pleasurable to let go, tobacco feels like i'm killing myself.Musicmac wrote:@Mir: 'Knocked off' as in 'knocked off my list of things I shouldn't do but should do before deciding not to ever do again'. Got extremely drunk in Thailand, and tried smoking a friend's cigarette this year, both which I vow to never attempt again unless I am completely crazy enough to do so.
Exactly. When you smoke weed, your current mental status is important. Smoke when sad or thinking you'll get sad, and you'll get very depressed. Smoke while thinking of something happy, or because you WANT to have a good time, and chances are you'll have a good time. Is a fairly simple formula. Also, smoking with other people creates a very special bond of human contact that is outside shame and is not sexual in nature, it returns you to a child-like train of thought IN THAT REGARD where before we could hug a man without feeling embarrased about it, is a very special and therapeutic thing to smoke in a community of GOOD people.Musicmac wrote:Honestly, what I've been thought so far in college Psychology has been pretty open to the idea of recreational drugs, including Marijuana (cannabis). Research has implied negative effects, but most of them have been objectively deemed almost unusable for argument since the evidence and research itself aren't as solid as they seem. However, majority of research shows that Marijuana is an almost unable to be classified drug, since it has both stimulant and depressant effects.
Yeah, it's like a dream state, sort of like waking up from a good night's sleep. The distortions i've experienced have been so subtle they're almost unnoticeable. In my case, anyway.Musicmac wrote:Since Marijuana does not closely resemble any drug, it's discussed completely, separately from other drugs and medicine.
-It produces calming effects, but not like alcohol or tranquilizers which puts you in a complete blur of everything around you, it's more of a drowsy effect.
-Distortions can be caused to the senses, but unlike the 'violent' ones in LSD.
-It's also a painkiller, but not completely numbing like opiates (morphine).
I remember some cancer patients actually smoke weed as prescription.Musicmac wrote:It's also got a whole load of medical uses for those who are incapable of relaxing themselves or experience severe physiological resistance in therapy, e.g. trauma from sensitive questions leading to nausea, headaches and other stuff. Heck, it even decreases cell loss in the brain after a stroke.
Yeah, totes.Musicmac wrote:Only disadvantageous effects that have been properly proven are temporary decrease in drive and memory recall (sort of like you on a lazy Sunday without any coffee to wake you up), increases in risking Parkinson's disease, and lung cancer from long-term use, same as tobacco cigarettes do.
