... a magic plant that will solve all the problems of mankind if it was only legalized.

Back when I used to smoke it I listened to countless discussions of the following type:

"Man, that is some badass weed man."

"Yeah man, if we would sit down and smoke some of this with the Chinese man, we could
totally chill with them, man"

"Yeah man, and did you hear what they say on the Cypress Hill cd? Like, we could
totally make all our clothes out of weed."

"Wow, that would be cool. Like that van Cheech and Chong had."

"Yeah man, and did you know that the government made it illegal because it cures cancer?"

"Yeah like on that Peter Tosh album? It cures asthma and headaches and almost anything."

"Yeah man, and I think it cleans my lungs man. I can cough up all kinds of shit when I smoke
some good skunk from da man."

"And all those new ideas you have. Like yesterday I was thinking of all this wierd shit man.
Maybe one day I will write a book."

"Yeah man, like Shakespeare. How do you think he could come up with all that shit."

"Yeah and I hear all these famous writers were totally stoners man."

"Wow. Wouldn't it be cool to smoke a fatty with Einstein?"

"Yeah man, I wonder why they don't legalize it. Maybe they want it all for themselves man."

"Yeah, fucking bogarts man. Hey dude have you seen my lighter? By the way what time is it man?
I'd totally have me a candy bar now"

"Did you know weed makes chemo patients hungry?"

and on and on and on

I am all for legalizing it. Mainly because I believe in privacy and that adults should make their own decisions. And I also think that it probably has some sort of useful medical purpose. But to say that people cannot have negative reactions to it, and that it will make us all healthy, peaceful and prosperous is I think an overstatement.


I think the Dude is stoned man!

2. Twenty years of chronic smoking hasn't changed my mind
It is god's gift to man and it will usher in a new society.

And studies show it very well ccould cure cancer.

It may be good for cancer but bad for spelling! This is one long thread!

a result, someone who smokes marijuana every day may be functioning at a suboptimal intellectual level all of the time.

solve all the problems of mankind

I thought that was the role of socialism, not weed.

I use to be aware of a bunch of side effect of pot smoking, but oddly enough I can't remember what they were...
