Drinking alcohol is an acceptable vice. Cannabis, just to remind you, is an evil, corrupting activity. If you look at the American intoxicant landscape, the big alcohol drug pushers are the good old boys just giving America a little fun on the side. At this point it is useful if you actually have a glass of vodka because it makes the rest of the argument a little easier to swallow. Violence, both domestic and random acts, are inspired by booze. Mayhem on a Friday night ending with a bunch of half wits standing around filming out of control child adults in an almost ritualistic fashion. But just to be clear, alcohol is the good drug. It has been at the heart of every Super Bowl and American holiday. Yes it is true that it is viewed as a poison by your body. If you can’t break it down and expel it quickly enough then you my friend, will die. Alcohol is addictive and promotes the rotting of ones insides in a slow, meandering way. But in fairness to the drug, it can be fun and relaxing if you only have a few glasses.
If you consume a well grown cannabis sativa strain then you will have a similar buzz to a few drinks. Being talkative and social are side effects of the plant. Happiness rather than aggression is promoted and while you are blissfully chatting with friends the plant is healing the inside of your body. Sounds like a good deal right! You get to relax and have a little healthy, stress free fun. Maybe it might be helpful for the reader to have another glass of vodka at this point. You see, the bad drug (alcohol) is actually sold as being good, and the good drug (cannabis) is labeled as bad/wrong/evil/dangerous/immoral. We have had our minds made up for us with years of cynical propaganda. Yesterday’s alcohol prohibition criminals are today’s upstanding members of society. Forget about Al Capone, now slick boardrooms are filled by money loving capitalists who have grown fat on the legal alcohol heist.
The anti pot side (the dark side) have given up trying to have a sensible debate. Before the internet we had limited access to real information but since the turn of the new century we have been surfing an information tsunami. From our sweet government’s point of view, we have a dangerous amount of knowledge. The free internet debate is the first attempt to limit the uninhibited flow of information. Back in the last century government and corporations monopolized what we heard and read. Today, smart arse punks like praguepot can deliver science and facts that compete with corporate propaganda. While we don’t have the same budget at praguepot, we do have access to the same knowledge.
We don’t need more proof. Government is lying to us and are dead wrong to enforce cannabis prohibition. Medical marijuana is real. Expensive medication that is toxic for our bodies can be replaced by the plant in many cases. Last night this writer went to bed with a pain in his lower back. I took a cookie before falling asleep knowing that the powerful anti inflammatory nature of the herb would take the pain away and begin to quickly sooth the problem. Today, not only was the sun shining, but the pain and stiffness was gone. This is a tiny personal example of what the plant does. From chronic pain sufferers to cancer patients, the plant promotes the healing of damaged bodies. For recreational users, organically grown cannabis is an excellent health supplement. Studies show it protects the brain and promotes Neurogenesis (grows new brain cells). It is not weird or wrong to choose pot over alcohol, it is the evolved, smart choice.
Our world is full of violence and aggression, ironically the plant that promotes the opposite emotions has been attacked with aggressive ignorance. We owe future generations a better world than the warring, polluted planet we have today. We need change, a move away from capitalist inspired ideals of greed and isolating hate. Today’s decision to get involved leads to tomorrows unstoppable momentum, so get busy reading and then get active in your local area.
