POT SMOKER GROWS UP AND TELLS ME WHY IT'S GOOD TO SUPPORT MARIJUANA

A lovely gentleman named John sent me an email about how he has grown up and knows why it's good to support marijuana:

Hey cindy. I just came across one of your comments while looking through my old replies on this old account of mine. Ive seen how youve sent me multiple replies on what ive said in the past regarding the use of marijuana. I felt the need to write this to you because of how much ive grown up since then. See, when we originally had our exchange I was nothing but a kid. I had no real legitiment arguments for my side of it. I would like to say that YES, i do support the use of marijuana and it is not an inherintly bad thing. I do agree that just like any thing else on this planet it can be misused and abused to a certain point. With that being said the positive affects far outweigh the negative. Marijuana has many beneficial uses such as treatment for cancer and a natural non-addictive pain killer. It helps with many different diseases and illness' and has helped many people i know. I realize that your main argument against it is that it is a "mind altering drug". Personally i dont believe this to be true. Yes smoking can make you feel really good and have a good time but it doesnt do much to change the way you think or act. Marijuana primarily gives you what is known as a "body high". This means that it makes you FEEL different but (like i said) not think or act different. This is somewhat similar to the effects of nicotine. When you smoke and inhale nicotine (if you have not already grown a strong tolerance to it) you get a "headrush". This is when you feel lightheaded but at the same time get a quick rush of euphoria. When you
smoke a cigsrette your brain releases endorphins which are what gives you the sense of happiness and satisfaction.This goes against what you have
said in the past, saying that you are not as strongly against cigarettes because they are not "mind altering". If you have read this all the way
through, i do thank you for hearing me out. I am not just another steriotypical pothead like you may think i am. I am a middle class american with a well paying job, house, and a girlfriend, who just so happens to enjoy the use of marijuana. I look foward to your response if you do decide
to send one. Best regards

MY REPLY:

MEDICAL MARIJUANA?? AARGGHHHH! Now you have REALLY done it. Now I have to add your comments to my huge folder filled with all the other THOUSANDS of comments and emails from "medical" users, supporters and growers who are just HORRIBLE. I have explained over and over a billion times for the past 15 years online that I am NOT AGAINST MEDICAL MARIJUANA! That is a TOTALLY different issue! Nobody is against MEDICINE. Medicine is something that helps a person treat an illness or condition they don’t want to have in the first place! I am a nice person and of course would not want anybody to suffer! If something like marijuana—or ANYTHING—truly helps a person with a true medical condition, then of COURSE that would be a good thing! I would use it myself if I had to, if it were legal for that and it worked. I have even been trying for YEARS to write an article on the benefits of medical marijuana! But I have yet to find a single decent person to interview to use as an example in my article! All the casual users rave about the medical benefits in order to justify getting high (while they cuss me out, threaten me with death and bodily harm, attack my religion, my looks, my sex life, make mean videos and websites about me, reveal my personal information, make fun of me for collecting dolls, tell me to kill myself, tell me they hope I get cancer, etc.) And even the "medical" users I've talked to and seen online have been horrible just like the recreational users. Even the "nice" ones don't get it and honestly can't see why it is wrong to use mind-altering drugs recreationally. How can I support them when they are like THAT?? And they all tell me that “medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are the same thing.” Oh brother. As if that makes it okay to get high on POT. Again, how can we support people when they are like that?? Especially the “medical” users who say this? They can’t be TRUE medical users!

Now all I want to do is write articles and make videos using all the THOUSANDS of comments and emails I have collected from “medical” users, supporters and growers, to show what they are like! The world needs to know!! It is so depressing. I always thought MEDICAL users and supporters and growers would be NICE, and surely agree that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally. What parent would ever raise their kids to grow up and get high on POT? At any age? And I say the same things about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law! Pot smokers all think that just because I say we shouldn't smoke pot, and that I'm all "hung up on pot" and think that it's all dangerous and deadly and "ruins your life." I never say that!  And their number one excuse is, “Pot is safer than alcohol.” Even the “medical” users tell me this, as if that has anything to do with MEDICAL marijuana! And they all accuse me of drinking wine and never saying anything bad about alcohol, which can’t be further from the truth. Just the fact that they all tell me this year after year after year shows that we need to speak up against pot even MORE! Again, all I'm saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally, that this is good morals and just plain common sense!

And you can't compare cigarettes with pot and alcohol, that isn't the same at all! What is wrong with  you people, always telling me that cigarettes are a "mind-altering drug"? You don't get stoned or high or tipsy or drunk from cigarettes! Of course that doesn't make it right to smoke cigarettes because they are dangerous, but you don't get HIGH from them like you would from pot! And then you ADMIT to me that marijuana makes you FEEL different? THAT IS WHAT MAKES IT WRONG! As I've said a billion times, pot smokers ADMIT to me all the time online that they use it to get high, have "fun", feel good, etc. And I BELIEVE them when they tell me why they use it and how it affects them! And that is why I'm against it! That is what makes it wrong! 

And you have a girl friend and a well paying job??? THAT MAKES IT WORSE THAT YOU WOULD SMOKE POT! You of ALL people should know better. Oh this takes the cake. Comments like yours are the entire reason I have been forced to keep speaking up against pot year after year. I AM TRYING TO HELP YOU GUYS. Can't you see that? And I have explained over and over that I'm a convert to the Mormon church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which is the true church, restored on the EArth in the latter days by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It has the fullness of the gospel. Part of this church is The Word of Wisdom which is revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. We are taught the moral and physical reasons to avoid using these things. This helps us lead a good life! Again, using mind-altering drugs like pot and alcohol to have "fun" is not what TRUE fun is! That's what makes it wrong! I invite you to read the Book of Mormon and study, ponder and pray and ask God if it is true. It will change your life! But you shouldn't even have to be Mormon or religious to know not to smoke pot or drink alcohol. It's just common sense! My point is that a grown adult should be WELL PAST the age where they'd want to use a mind-altering drug recreationally. What a thing to do! People need to grow up and set an example!
