Today I thought I would share an interesting story from one of our visitors in relation to legalizing marijuana:
I’m definite, I smoke pot, sounds like an “AA” meeting in here.
I’m a former police officer. I have smoked and eaten Mary Jane for over 25 years in moderation. Moderation is of course vague, and unique to the individual consumer.
In my opinion moderation for me has been once or twice a week after 9pm for over 25 years. I can obviously still write and carry on a conversation, my vision isn’t blurred, I still use all of my senses, I can breath fine, I am not in a wheel chair, I haven’t killed anyone, I haven’t committed suicide, I still remember where I parked my car, I still know what day it is, and how old I am.
I still go to work, I function the same as I always have. However I do hate our government, I am awake to the horrors and atrocities that our government has done and is doing. My eyes are more opened than most to the evils around us.
I have allot of compassion for my fellow human, and our animal kingdom.
The point is marijuana has not in the slightest hurt me. In fact it has opened my eyes, my mind, my feelings, and it continues to help me shed light on the unexplainable that is becoming explainable.
I’m a richer person having not ever given up my Cannabis.
My medical problems are torn ligaments and damaged cartilage in my knee from years of martial arts training, arthritis and insomnia.
I have seen so much death in so many ways that I couldn’t sleep or be functional if it were not for pot. Marijuana changes my mindset so that I can forget things just long enough to get to sleep. I guess that’s PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder) undiagnosed. It takes my mind off the pain in my leg, so I can function during the day time, I can actually mow my lawn, feed the horses, and dig a post hole. Arthritis, what arthritis, I’m stoned right now.
My kids and wife love me, I am not grumpy after I take weed. I’m more in tune to everyone’s needs instead of thinking about me, and how miserable I am.
It has saved me tens of thousands of dollars in pharmaceuticals and doctor visits. I don’t go to the doctor unless I rip my arm or leg off.
I haven’t taken anything over the counter in 8 years and then it was a cream for a bad case of athletes foot. Marijuana definitely has medical purpose, as well as a natural place in human society. I encourage the use and legalization of Marijuana.
