I’m pretty sure this will rattle a cage a two, might even get called a”fed” again as I have been when confronting AIM and addressing the many murders and crimes they committed, could lose a few “likes”, but “likes” don’t trump reality and I wouldn’t remain silent or say something I don’t belief if in doing so it generated a thousand likes.
One thing you have to say about pot smokers is they are committed as well as in a perpetual state of denial – they’ve got an answer for everything from pot is harmless because it’s “organic” to pot smokers don’t become violent as the result of indulging.
It may be troubling to say so but organic isn’t an across the board recommendation as many organic substances are toxic.
As to violent behavior maybe on an individual basis there isn’t much, perhaps none at all, but the industry is perpetuated by violence from drug cartels to dealers and gangs.
I believe a fair number of them will rail about GMOs and the like while ignoring they haven’t a clue about what exactly is in the pot they smoke.
Fact of the matter is pot increasingly contains “additives” like fentanyl among other substances which is an opioid to “enhance” the high.
No doubt many users consider themselves environmentalist, champions of a green environment as the evidence mounts that illegal marijuana farming and the associated toxic dumping has a devastating environmental affect.
One has to wonder if the associated pesticide use adds to the “high” as well and how users square that with their organic green beliefs.
I neither smoke pot, drink, or engage in activities that make zero sense to me – at the same time I don’t care if a person smokes pot or drinks as long as they don’t start acting stupid.
If they do either as a form of “recreation” and do so responsibly not a problem – but I’d question whether that face in the toilet vomiting thing is recreational in nature.
Sounds about as much fun as waterboarding or an enema.
And just for the record, that meme about pot was some revered mystical substance used by the nations during ceremonies etc is pure unadulterated bullshit propagated by those with an agenda.
A person might ask what about medicinal marijuana?
My response would be I have no problem with that and it’s probably light years cleaner and safer than what’s normally available on the streets.
With all the hue and cry about addictive additives in cigarettes since opioids are well known to be addictive does anyone want to discuss their presence in marijuana?
Would they like to explain the reason why there would be an additive? Could it be addiction and the perpetuation of a dealers market?
I’ve known people who would spend literally hundreds of dollars a month on pot, start coming unhinged and antsy if they ran out, some were forthright enough to admit they were addicted, others of course denied the very suggestion.
In the end if you want to smoke pot, drink, or do drugs, that”s on you, just don’t attempt to persuade me it’s all good as I ain’t buying it.
Casinos in kind of a contradiction of their express purpose to separate rubes from their money will post notices that if you have a gambling problem contact this number.
Cigarette manufacturers do pretty much the same – never having been in a legal pot store I wonder if they post a comparable message?
After all it doesn’t matter what kind of smoke you inhale smoke is smoke and isn’t good for your lungs or heart.
I’ve often said that in the midst of the gun control debate responsible owners need to step up and take back their right from fear mongering organizations, so called militia groups, and the NRA- I’ve said the same of political party members and church goers, they need to step up in a responsible way and take back their political party and the direction their church takes.
I’d say the same of responsible drinkers and pot smokers – time to step up.
Bottom line is if you don’t grow what you ingest whether it be food or pot you can’t claim to know everything it contains, and that ought to be something to think about.
That isn’t meant to encourage people to begin growing pot though I would advocate for planting a vegetable garden.
