My Toke on Cannabis

27 November 2012, 13:01

Okay first thing is first…. I have had it with this community that is constantly pushing lies about pot…I can not even count how many times tik and the herb has been put in the same sentence( :D?).

But seriously…please explain in the comments section WHY you are against pot…is it because the news told you its bad…the same news that is always 1 sided? Look at the war is a perfect example… the same politicians that promised people many great things…. These SAME politicions are the one’s telling you marijuana is bad? People need to start thinking for themselves….. do your relevant research on the plant…. Oh another point that really gets to me is the fact that people say stoners are lazy or crazy…… excuse me if im wrong but arnt these stoners growing your food.. helping you lot out at the mall the list goes on the only way for one person to differentiate between another is if said stoner tells the other person that he/she enjoys the odd toke after work…. Its not logical…. Stoners are interwoven into society that the mass population doesn’t get stoners are everywhere….  Another argument people love to write about is “Oh we have tabacco and alcohol already, why bring another destructive substance into the society”…. Okay okay lets just back up a bit here… so you are telling me that because tabacco and alchohol are legal making pot legal is just way too bad….

Oh how people are UNEDUCATED… lets to some rational thinking…. Tobacco and alcohol are the number  1 substance killers yet they are legal…. Surely LOGICALLY if you maybe ban the 2 leading causes of death on this planet you have so many household problems solved…  so much anger solved deaths from drunken driving SOLVED…. But what some people don’t understand is that they never made it illegal due to how “bad” it was they banned it to let the pharmaceutical market sore… imagine you have this miracle plant that does what every single pill put together can achieve in a single puff…. No more Ponado’s. No more Asprin…. This is why its illegal forget tax.... think about profits…

Weed is NOT FOREVERYONE…. As like smoking is not for people who suffer with asthma and so forth… so why this hatred on the plant ? And all you “religious” folk who say MARIJUANA IS THE DEVIL PLANT…. Okay so first of all you are contradicting yourself… didn’t God create EVERYTHING according to the bible… and I AM POSITIVE there is a verse in the bible stating that I bestow to you to use any and all SEED BEARING PLANT….

Gateway Drugs. For a long time people who were/ are against marijuana ABSOLUTLY LOVE using “WEED IS THE GATEWAY DRUG IT WILL MAKE YOU DO HARDER DRUGS”. Let’s just back things up here remember when I said stoners are interwoven into society… well what is also interwoven into our society is alcohol how many times have I seen parents giving there 12 /13 year old KIDS a SIP of there beer…. Now please HOW CAN YOU SAY WEED IS THE GATEWAY DRUG when surely by all logic booze is the gateway drug? It’s still advertised on TV.. SAB sponsor’s rugby and cricket teams.. is that not in a child’s face MORE times than weed.

All stoners ask for is to stop this victimless crime against weed legalise it and leave us alone we do not harm you we do not threaten you…. Alcohol harms….
