Well, this eliminates the “Dealer”! More seriously, I understand that there are situations when Marijuana or Pot use helps alleviate symptoms suffered in certain illnesses, and that’s fine. I don’t think anyone would disagree with pot being used there.
The problem that I am seeing is all of the sudden the list of sufferings by patients is forever growing. For example in this very article one person who is taking the drug for anger management totally surprised me. You might ask why, since anyone who has ever used pot for recreational purposes knows this drug basically makes you totally passive. You would say its perfect for anger management.
Well the problem with pot is the addiction isn’t so much a physical addiction as it is a psychological addiction, and when you quit as I did from a two to three ounce usage per month addiction for years. The first thing you encounter is a very increased anger level. So using it for anger management is basically taking someone who has a problem and adding gas to the flame. Now you have just created a monster.
That is the problem with this idea of prescribed use of pot. Any reason to use is appearing on the list. Yes I know that we live in a medicated society, when you consider pot, and all of the other drugs, legal or not, and then you mustn’t forget alcoholic beverages, and this new stuff called designer drugs such as ecstasy and such. America is medicated!
Because of all of this, has anyone ever considered just what the ramifications are to our society, to the human race? How much dose it contribute to incest, birth defects, crime, physiological dysfunction in the populous, and finally the ultimate conclusion, death. Where would we, the human race be, if we weren’t inhibited by all of this unnecessary pollution, can you imagine?
