Well, it's April 20th again, and that means potheads are going to be out in force, trying to convince you that marijuana is 'cool' and will make you 'rad' if you smoke it. I'm here to tell you: "No". Marijuana is not "just an herb with many health benefits", it is a mind-altering substance that can destroy your life. People who become addicted to THC (The horrible chemicals) in marijuana are less likely to graduate high school, less likely to get a good job, less likely to stay married, and are more prone to being forgetful and lazy. Smokers of marijuana are more likely to engage in deviant behaviors, such as crimes, or listening to rap music, or getting tattoos, often demonic-looking ones like tattoos of skulls. Marijuana smokers are more likely to upgrade to harder drugs, such as cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, crystal meth, angel dust, LSD, regular meth, Xanax, alcohol, and even tobacco products.
The people who are most at risk are our children.
Children who are exposed to marijuana are 80% more likely to start smoking marijuana themselves. After they smoke so much marijuana, the high it gives them won't be enough anymore. They'll go from smoking one teenth and getting incredibly high to smoke around 5-6 "blunts" per day and not feeling that high. The brain builds defense against THC after awhile, and as the brain's defense system becomes more resistant to this narcotic, teens and young adults are tempted to turn to the harder drugs. This is why marijuana is known as the "gateway" drug, because it is the most basic drug that unlocks the tech tree for more advanced drugs, like the cybernetics core drug, the templar archives drug, the stargate drug, and the robotics facility drug.
What is in marijuana? Nobody knows, not even your drug dealer. The drugs are manufactured illegally in countries that are essentially lawless, which are then bought by the Russians and the Chinese, and then shipped to the United States, Great Britain, France, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, and all of the developed nations that contribute things to the world such as cures for horrible diseases, and who are exploring space. Because marijuana is illegal in the USA, drug dealers can put anything in their nugz, including poison. Studies show that people who smoke marijuana are often in below-average health, and have anger problems, or mental problems. This is exacerbated by their marijuana usage. They get temporary relief from "getting high", but once they come down from their pot-fueled delusions, they become even more agitated than before. This inevitably leads them to thinking that smoking even more marijuana is what they need in order to stay calm, and they become addicted and out-of-control.
The prevailing myth by pro-marijuana advocates is that marijuana is harmless and cannot hurt you or kill you. That is a lie. Imagine a kid driving a car under the influence of marijuana. All of a sudden, something happens, and he is too slow to react, and slams his car into a concrete barrier. If marijuana slows down your reactions and causes your thoughts to wander off, driving a car is the last thing you should be doing!!!! Additionally, when you smoke marijuana, you are inhaling carbon dioxide, a carcinogen that leads to cancer. Marijuana-smoking can also lead to paranoia, and even schizophrenia. Smokers of marijuana often become too lazy to complete necessary tasks, such as doing homework or filing taxes. Because they become forgetful, they forget important things, like to turn the oven off, or turn the stove off, which can lead to fire. They may forget to turn the bathtub off, which can cause the bathtub to overflow, which leads to flooding, and inevitably, drowning. They may forget important dates and times, which leads to losing friends, and committing suicide due to depression.
Also, because marijuana is illegal, our nation's children have to deal with dangerous, and often times, violent drug-dealers who usually are not marijuana smokers themselves, because they've graduated to higher drugs themselves, and are even more dangerous because they are often using cocaine, or meth themselves. Some drug dealers even do drug deals while under the influence of LSD, or even heroin.
If someone tries to tell you that marijuana is harmless, or offers you some marijuana to smoke, eat, or inject, tell them one of these key phrases:
- "I'm not a fool. I'm cool."
- "Marijuana is illegal, and for good reasons. I'm not going to break the law."
- "Smoking marijuana is against my religion, and I respect God more than I respect you."
- "Seriously? I'd rather you buzz off than getting buzzed."
- "Fuck you."
- "Go fuck yourself."
- "Die in a ditch, fucker."
- "You have until the count of 10 before I start choking you."
- "No way, I don't smoke weed. I smoke fools like you on the b-ball court."
- "Nah thanks, I'm good."
- "No thank you, I like living a normal life."
- "I'd like to actually graduate college and get a high-paying job."
- "I'm going to buy a car made entirely out of hamburger meat."
- "Please stop trying to push the kush on my tush."
- "Please stop trying to pass some grass on my ass."
- "Please stop trying to ask if I wanna smoke marijuana with your iguana."
- "I live my life weed-free."
- "Sorry, I was dared to resist drugs in a game of Truth of Dare, and I always honor my dares."
- "I'd rather roll in paper money than roll paper."
- "I'm too tough to take a puff."
- "Doing puffs will end my life up in handcuffs."
- "There are legal alternatives to smoking dangerous unregulated drugs like weed, such as getting a prescription from a qualified psychiatrist."
- "I'm going to dab on you for suggesting that I smoke the reefer."
- "Do I look stupid to you? Wait a minute, shit, don't answer that. Why do I go through so much bullshit, it's such bullshit, it's touch my bitch."
- "I'd rather have my own parents die in a horrible fire than light up with you."
- "Get away from me, you weed-freak."
- "We're not friends anymore, you dumpster fire subhuman."
- "I just pissed a cactus out of my dick."
- "Marijuana kills."
