Scotland (Oct 11) – Firstly, I should point out that I do not get a say in marijuana legislation, if I had the opportunity to vote on Proposition 19, the California Marijuana Legalization initiative, I would most certainly vote yes.
The argument that it causes mental health issues is completely redundant. While that may be the case in very, very, very few cases think about how watching the news makes you feel, Depressed, Angry. Your boss gives you a hard time; you clock out and head to the pub where you soak your anger in alcohol because it is legal. Nevertheless, you should not. To some this is like trying to put out a fire with petrol.
There is no mystery with drugs, they all do something useful booze makes nightclubs bearable and mediocre women with no soul seem attractive. Mushrooms can open your mind, or at least make college classes more interesting and marijuana makes absolutely, positively everything on the face of the planet taste, feel, and look and smell better. I cannot recommend it enough, just last night I smoked an amazing joint just before bed and watched a couple of DVDs.
This weekend I have drank a Herculean amount of booze (for me, truth be told I am a lightweight) mainly Singapore Slings and vodka, not mixed I am no heathen. I feel infinitely better this morning than I did yesterday morning. It is all very well doing drugs, but… Nah, it is just all very well doing drugs. It is your body, if you want to experience something that you have no chance of finding through religion or romance, take some drugs.
The brain is an incredible thing. Certain drugs do certain things to the brain. I would not recommend taking mushrooms and smoking lots of weed before entering a nightclub, but I had a blast that night. The lights, the music, the sweat, the girls, the dancing, it all came together like some big beast intent on blowing my mind and turning me on.
The next night I got drunk. That is all that happened that night.
If you are lucky enough to vote on Prop 19, you might as well vote yes. Any scientific back up you think you have to this argument is completely ridiculous, and probably comes from one or more media outlets.
It is difficult to talk about legalising this drug in particular without coming off like a cliché stoner, but it is a great drug. If you disagree with that then do not smoke it. Then you really should not be drinking or using any sort of drug, in fact if you vote no, then I hope you campaign to get all drugs made illegal, but think about it first. No one likes a hypocrite.
