What is it with the Greens and their obsession with marijuana?
PS. Approx 3 decade's ago, some work colleagues devulged that they chain bong smoked driving on the way to work, a couple more at lunch, on the way home and apparently at night till they slept and repeated the process. Their 40 hrs of work was significantly less productive than it could have been and I was concerned with their use of machines. Weekends were apparently dope and magic mush etc. Yes when used medicinally dope for some extreme pain may be prescribed. As a daily prop, I have seen the deminishing of potential of lives and it is truly sad.
We've got gambling for losers, smart people on dope... I think we need signs in parliament, "keep off the grass man, green stoners at work". When they have permanently damaged our country's precious young minds, when, mental issues compound and learning diminishes and our country is weakened by green folly, will they celebrate the destruction they have unleashed?
Legalise, something that has been used as medicine for thousands of years. The parasitic politicians who do the bidding of the Billionaires behind the Pharmaceutical Mafia had no business making it illegal in the first place.
Illegal or not, it has always been lawful, unlike the legal fiction that comes out of our cesspit parliaments.
Bad statutes are meant to be ignored or openly disregarded. This may well be the only thing the Greens get right.
I'm in my mid sixties and have always ignored this statutory fiction, however smoking weed and driving is like drink driving, but otherwise it does no harm to others to use this healing gift from god and I won't have the criminals that make up the major political parties dictate to me.
I saw you talk about this last night with Rowan and agree totally.
We are now suffering from what we were told were "safe and effective vaccines".
They were supposed to be tested on humans with trials showing 98% effectiveness, but since then we have found that they were -41% effective (41% more likely to get the virus than those who didn't have the jab).
Now the Greens want to legalize a drug that has not been properly studied and already has problems with intoxication and schizophrenia as reported side effects from individual experiences.
There is also the suggestion that it might lead to increased use of more dangerous drugs from more individual observations.
I think we need to restrict all drugs to their best limitation and that includes coffee, tea, sugar, fat, salt, sunlight, water, heat, cold, sex, work, play, exercise, etc. moderation in all things is good for the body and the soul. Of course we need to do this for ourselves as most people do when they plan their budget or diet.
If they want a four day week so they can smoke grass then I suggest they still work 40 hours like most others do i.e. 10 hour days. Self employed people often work far longer hours for more days per week than that and they earn more money and pay more taxes.
We don't have enough willing workers today to allow some to work less, so I don't think we should make it a law. If you don't want to work, follow Saul's advice (2 Thess 3: 10) "if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either."
The sooner we get rid of the dole the less problems we will have with such ideas.
I'm sure it helps severe pain, go for it if that's the case, and that's where it should stop.
Janelle's comments ring true in my family, sadly supported by James' comment re people who use cannabis being more likely to develop chronic mental issues.
It's certainly not harmless.
In news just in : Democrats have invited the Greens to a summit about legalising marijuana. There will be a joint statement. As an aside, should ALL politicians, especially the ones who make these statements supporting the legalisation of marijuana, be tested for same, before making these statements?
I know that Cannabis is very useful for medical purposes. It really does help with severe pain and some neurological disorders. However just like any form of medication it has side affects. I found when using it regularly post cancer treatment that I suffered severe depression, very, very dark moods and paranoia. I was not smoking it but consuming it via edibles. To be frank, it messes with your brain. I don't use it any more and have adopted different ways of managing my pain. Legalising Cannabis will not be a good for the general population. I have observed the long term affects on others and it is as destructive at alcoholism. Another stupid idea from the greens.
It isn’t called Dope for nothing.
It's almost always the upper / middle class, politically left ideologues who 'smoked it in uni and never did them any harm' that push for this nonsense when in reality the worst impact of lighting up the happy baccy or bong is almost always felt by the lower socio economic demographic; those who can least afford to deal with its impact or its cost - financially, psychologically and socially.
I spoke with a friend last week that just came back from Canada - he said the stink of dope is everywhere you go... and the people are just vacantly stoned...
Making it legal might make it no longer a crime, but might lead more people to smoke it, and that would cause no end of problems... I remember Theodore Dalrymple making an excellent case in this issue. Marijuana is an entry level drug... make the proles more stoned... keep them enslaved and let the dope disguise the pain of the gaol they asked to be imprisoned in.
