I am Anti-Marijuana

I have seen too many people spouting the lies about marijuana for way to long and I just can't nor won't be quiet about how I feel about it any longer. I am anti marijuana, anti medical marijuana. It's a drug, it gets you high. Period. There are no good uses for it, it doesn't help anyone, it doesn't cure cancer and it sure as hell doesn't help anyone suffering from PTSD, social anxiety, depression or seizures.

Someone actually sent me an article in which they proclaimed that a parent gave their child marijuana and it cured his cancer, it's utterly ridiculous. If it cures cancer than why aren't all the pot heads who have cancer and are smoking it because they falsely believe that it can help them gain their appetite back or ease their pain..how come it isn't curing their cancer? Because it doesn't cure cancer. That's why. It's not medicine. Stop spreading your lies about how this is a natural medicine and it cures all kinds of things. Just because it grows in the ground does not mean it's medicine. Oleander also grow in the ground..if you eat them they kill you. Just because it's "all natural" doesn't mean it's good for you.

It's a drug. It gets you high. That's all it does.

Want to ease symptoms of depression, anxiety or PTSD? Take a xanax and talk to a psychiatrist. Pot does not cure these ailments, it masks them while you are HIGH as hell and you don't care. Just like an alcoholic when he gets drunk doesn't care about his problems while he is drunk the pot head isn't bothered by their problems while high and gets a false sense of being "better" because they are smoking pot, when in actuality they are just too high to really understand what's going on in their brain.

Smoking pot actually causes a lot of the symptoms that people smoke it for. It causes paranoia, diarrhea, foggy thinking, weakened immune system, lung disease and makes seizure disorders worst.

I found some great pages on Fb that you can join if you are against marijuana getting anymore wide spread than it already is.

  1. Good points. I would only add that if someone is dying and is in excruciating pain and pot seems to ease their suffering, I would not deny them.

  2. Agreed, all it is is a crutch and the people who say it is good are deluding themselves because they want to use it. But yeah if someone is already dying of horrible pain, let them go for it if it helps.

  3. Personally, I don't really care if someone is smoking marijuana or not. Saying that, I try and avoid the potheads because all the ones I've met managed to annoy me to the river Styx and back. As long as they aren't hurting anyone, just leave them be.

  4. Although I completely agree that it is a drug and not an "all-natural herb" it can help people if used RESPONSIBLY. Just like any other drug, it can be useful to certain patients but it can be abused by many more. I likve with pain, muscle spasms, depression, anxiety, etc every day and if it were legal in my home state, I would check it out, for the times when I have to have releif. Most of the time I try to stick with my TENs unit, Bio-Freeze, anti-inflammatory meds, Lidoderm patches, muscle relaxers, and ice packs to help with my pains, plus I take an anti-depressant daily. I do have a prescription for pain meds that I use when the pain gets very bad, but try to not have to take them if possible. There have been times when I are times when I would try almost anything for relief, such as when I can't sleep due to pain, only getting 2 or 3 hours sleep TOTAL a night for days on end (mostly in 20-30 minute stretches). During those times, yeah, if medical marijuana was legal in my state I would definitely use it.
