SMOKING POT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD

Advocates of Medical Marijuana complain not enough research has been done to scientifically prove that pot is effective in combating pain. A recent study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal set about to do just that. And I’m glad to see the scientific community spending its time and resources to come to these kinds of earth-shattering conclusions:

“Twenty-one adults with chronic nerve pain were taught to take a single inhalation of 25 milligrams of cannabis through a pipe, three times a day, for five days. The cannabis contained one of three levels of potency of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana, as well as a placebo dosage containing no THC.

All of the patients rotated through each of the four dosages, with nine days of no smoking in between.

Patients smoking the highest potency marijuana (9.4 percent) reported less pain than those smoking samples containing no THC. Patients also reported better sleep and less anxiety, according to the Canadian study.

On an 11-point scale, the average daily pain intensity was 6.1 for those smoking 9.4 percent THC concentration, compared to 5.4 for those smoking cannabis containing no THC.” – Bloomberg Business Week

So basically, smoking grass makes you feel good. Smoking strong grass makes you feel really good. I’ve been trying to tell the world this for years but nobody would believe me. Now that I’m armed with the scientific facts to back me up I’m going to go to Carl’s Jr.

Pot is illegal because the government would rather you use pharmaceuticals to ease pain or play Halo. And something to do with black people and jazz music. Not sure. But everyone likes it and smokes it and, now that I think about it, I’m not even really sure it’s illegal. I say that because I’ve been toking up for close to twenty years and I’ve never gotten in trouble with the law. I don’t think the concern has ever crossed my mind.

And by now I think we all know pot is relatively harmless. Yeah, there’s still that largely under-informed segment of America that thinks smoking pot makes you rape and shoot people. For these people smoking grass is like REEFER MADNESS where kids’ lives spin violently out of control after smoking a joint. And they play the piano really fast and without any apparent rhythm or melody. Again, it’s some kind of anti-jazz thing.

Law enforcement, for its part, espouses the theory of pot as a “gateway drug”. Basically, this means that when you smoke pot you get so high you open up a gateway in your mind that allows you to see how full of shit cops are on this issue. More crimes are committed every year under the influence of alcohol then just about all other drugs combined. Ask any drug addict living on the streets (I spent 4 ½ years living in Downtown Los Angeles, I practically know them all personally at this point) what drug they first started using and they’ll tell you booze, not pot, was what started them on that road.

And that’s not to say that I advocate criminalizing alcohol. I’ve been drinking since I was 15 and, unless I suddenly convert to Islam, I’m probably going to be doing it for the foreseeable future. I would even go so far as to say that drinking is the key to successful parenting.

    If she does go back, it won’t be long before she begins to believe that their partnership woes are entirely their fault. It can also reveal things that don’t work in

    They used to say that cannabis made white women promiscuous with black men. They keep coming up with more and more nonsense all the time.

    Look at this story. Thank God that doctors and scientists are beginning to stand up for the truth:
