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