Don't Smoke Medical Marijuana! Weed is Very Bad For You - Pt. 1

Updated on October 5, 2011

I don't care what anyone tells me, marijuana is bad for you.

Just about everyday you will hear some news of someone committing a crime because they were either high on marijuana, or, they were trying to steal some mary jane. That is why the prisons are filled with criminals who decided to live a life dedicated to possessing weed. Many lives have been destroyed by this terrible plant. The plant of Satan.

I remember the first time that I was peer pressured into smoking ganja when I was in high school.

At the time, I was the starting quarterback, small forward, and I was the ace pitcher on my schools varsity sports squads. I had MLB and college scouts going to my games to have a look at my skills. I was an excellent athlete to say the least. As far as academics go, my grade point average was a 4.0 for the last 5 semesters. It was very tiring keeping up and succeeding at this pace, but the rewards made it most definitely worth the pain.

When I took my first toke of the joint with a few of my basketball teammates, I coughed for about 5 minutes non-stop. Good thing we were at my friend Ron's house. His parents worked during the day and of course it was lunchtime. After my coughing attack, I took another drag. Not as bad as the first. Then I took another pull, and another, and another, and anoth...

"You better pass that man!", Ron yelled at me. That's when I first learned the unwritten puff puff pass rule.

I wish I never did learn that, but I did and we never went back to class that day. That day was the start of my downfall. We did the same thing the next day. Am I getting hooked on what my friends told me was harmless? Why am I getting so paranoid? Why am I so hungry after I just ate? Why does this song sound so damn great? These are some of the questions that I would ponder in my mind.


Find out more about my descent into turmoil because I decided to dabble in marijuana in the next installment of Don't Smoke Marijuana!

      Now I have to admit to being curious. That is not the response I expected nor did I expect you to follow me. I will wait and yet I can't and wont promise you a response that will be different unless you offer something other than opinions in your hubs about this subject.

      What propts a person to spread lies like this? Where did you get this information about the medicinal properties of marijuana? From your preacher? From the drug companies determined to kill as many people as they can for profits?

      I had a cyst develop on my back in 1983 and was finally able to have it removed in 2008. The doctor preforming the surgery was amazed in that the type of cancer this cyst consisted of was one of the most agressive types there is. He couldn't understand why it hadn't spread thruout my entire body. Once I informed him that I was a daily smoker of marijuana and was sure this had something to do with it, He said he couldn't disagree with my statement. There have been countless studies that prove the medicinal benefits of marijuana and you know for a fact that they have all been lies spread by satan, correct?

      I understand this mentality as I see it all the time in the bible belt. Since the scientists are wrong about the earth NOT being 6000 years old, they are wrong about everything they have ever discovered. Does that sound about right to you?

      You have a weak personality and blame your failures as a human on the first handy scapegoat you can find. The fact that you enjoyed being high more than I suppose you did playing softball means that the problem is with the weed, correct? Marijuana has never killed one person. Marijuana has saved and improved countless lives and we should discard all available evedience because you are unable to deal with the truth. Marijuana and hemp are the oldest known crops to ever be grown in the history of mankind and yet you know more than every person who has ever lived. Enjoy your ignorance to your hearts content, but please dont attempt to enter into discussions that you are ill equipped to continue. It takes intelligence and common sense to have an intelligent conversation. You have shown a willingness to discard fact for the lies you have been fed by people who know even less than you do. You have to be another brainwashed christian.
