My friend told me to put this online “while I’ve never experienced cannabis I do know that It increases your thinking capacity somehow, allowing complex things to become more clear and yet simple things become complex. while having that on your mind think about this, why is alcohol and smoking more accepted than weed. What harm does it bring? Do people die from it…often, No. (people die in many weird ways unless its a large amount it doesnt count.) But smoking kills even affects other people even ones yet to come into the world. alcohol in large consumption can deplete the mind. see a pattern here? Weed increases while the other rids. one is legal the other isnt. keep the population stupid and things are easy to control without being questioned. And its not just this it is in all things. Media, Religion, Traditions, Culture, Society as a whole is an illusion. The world is no more different than it was back then. Tribes, kings, queens, so called “Holy” wars, barbaric behavior. propaganda. Nothing has changed. only the technology. We hide our behind our flags thinking we are better simply because a flag and an imaginary border. We are all human we are all the same. We came from nonliving material of the world, and so we shall return to it. In my mind we never die actually, we once again become part of the world. and that is another problem. We see ourselves apart from the world.”-Jarrad Glynn Kirk
very perceptive, but to think that there was never an ‘ism’ because of mans need to ideologically possess a label, whatever it is; christian, moslem, democratic, social lib, all these wonderful terms only to box label us into a some mould of sorts. Diversity and the crossing of ideas is all up to individuals and hence individualism, another ‘ism’. So you just can’t win…..with powermongers, wealthy sycophants and us folk in the middle who have to listen to propoganda from all these other ‘isms’, makes one want to just be free regardless of all the boxed up holier/better politicians and religionists. So long as we keeping seeing life in a judgmental and self-righteous manner, then we deserve the unnecessary, uncompromising needs of the powers that be, and there is no end of our suffering or doubt. If we just become more conscious, then weed or constructive analysis of a situation can be taken more seriously and not guarded jealously ‘cos of power and money mongering(charity, starts at home). Also I’m noticing a more mature outlook to the weed/hemp and hence hopefully it will be decriminalized, ‘cos the government and specially health services could help with health costs and probably makes billions out of it, but money is only useful when you can make money and more money and that’s a decision which no-one takes cos it is decision-based, and we all know that the west likes to think of ganja users as fiends/devils, so I don’t know it is all organized and controlled by decision-makers who have based their prejudice over hemp in favour of other fibres, products, etc…..
