weed is a gift. its "bad" cause it exposes your true feelings and puts them in front of you to deal with. creator forbid we deal and correctly manage our personal reality.

Video: Tommy Chung breaks down how Mexicans brought weed into the U.S. and by criminalizing weed it enabled the criminalization of Mexicans or minorities who smoked weed

The Mexican Connection

In the early 1900s, the western states developed significant tensions regarding the influx of Mexican-Americans. The revolution in Mexico in 1910 spilled over the border, with General Pershing's army clashing with bandit Pancho Villa. Later in that decade, bad feelings developed between the small farmer and the large farms that used cheaper Mexican labor. Then, the depression came and increased tensions, as jobs and welfare resources became scarce.

One of the "differences" seized upon during this time was the fact that many Mexicans smoked marijuana and had brought the plant with them.

However, the first state law outlawing marijuana did so not because of Mexicans using the drug. Oddly enough, it was because of Mormons using it. Mormons who traveled to Mexico in 1910 came back to Salt Lake City with marijuana. The church was not pleased and ruled against use of the drug. Since the state of Utah automatically enshrined church doctrine into law, the first state marijuana prohibition was established in 1915. (Today, Senator Orrin Hatch serves as the prohibition arm of this heavily church-influenced state.)

Other states quickly followed suit with marijuana prohibition laws, including Wyoming (1915), Texas (1919), Iowa (1923), Nevada (1923), Oregon (1923), Washington (1923), Arkansas (1923), and Nebraska (1927). These laws tended to be specifically targeted against the Mexican-American population.

When Montana outlawed marijuana in 1927, the Butte Montana Standard reported a legislator's comment: "When some beet field peon takes a few traces of this stuff... he thinks he has just been elected president of Mexico, so he starts out to execute all his political enemies." In Texas, a senator said on the floor of the Senate: "All Mexicans are crazy, and this stuff [marijuana] is what makes them crazy."

Jazz and Assassins

In the eastern states, the "problem" was attributed to a combination of Latin Americans and black jazz musicians. Marijuana and jazz traveled from New Orleans to Chicago, and then to Harlem, where marijuana became an indispensable part of the music scene, even entering the language of the black hits of the time (Louis Armstrong's "Muggles", Cab Calloway's "That Funny Reefer Man", Fats Waller's "Viper's Drag").

Again, racism was part of the charge against marijuana, as newspapers in 1934 editorialized: "Marihuana influences Negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men's shadows and look at a white woman twice."

Two other fear-tactic rumors started to spread: one, that Mexicans, Blacks and other foreigners were snaring white children with marijuana; and two, the story of the "assassins." Early stories of Marco Polo had told of "hasheesh-eaters" or hashashin, from which derived the term "assassin." In the original stories, these professional killers were given large doses of hashish and brought to the ruler's garden (to give them a glimpse of the paradise that awaited them upon successful completion of their mission). Then, after the effects of the drug disappeared, the assassin would fulfill his ruler's wishes with cool, calculating loyalty.

By the 1930s, the story had changed. Dr. A. E. Fossier wrote in the 1931 New Orleans Medical and Surgical Journal: "Under the influence of hashish those fanatics would madly rush at their enemies, and ruthlessly massacre every one within their grasp." Within a very short time, marijuana started being linked to violent behavior.

There is some truth to this statement.I have been clean from the herb for over two months now.The main reason I quit is I was starting to get a little paranoid and started to get anxiety.Since then I feel no desire to get high any more,maybe thats a good thing.

Yes. Weed is bad. It makes people lethargic, on the other hand, running/cycling/swimming will give you a natural high and energy.

This one's pretty ambiguous. My take on this is that those that smoke and don't do anything with their lives, had no goals to begin with. I know PLENTY of people here in college getting their degrees that smoke eeeeeeeeeeeevery day. :p

Weed like anything that is abused or used over a long period of time will have negative effects on the body.

Weed does not make everyone that smokes it lazy, just like drinking does not make everyone violent.

The worse problem of long term abuse is short term memory loss, as well as lung damage. Granted lung damage will occur just living in a modern city.

I know many many people who smoke; Business owners, Executives for Fortune 500 companies, Information Security personal, etc.
Granted these people don't abuse it, they don't smoke all day. Smoking after a long day of work or on the weekends is no different then heading to the bar.

Some people also prefer using it for pain over harsh drugs like Vicodin.

As for it being addictive, this would depend on the person.

Weed comes in many forms of edibles now days. You can get pasta, soda, popcorn, chips, cereal, ice cream, hot sauce, etc.

I personally pefer to be around weed users then I do around people who drink.

This is soo true, everytime I've done it it's like I turn inside out. Everything I conciously block out of my mind (feeling, issues, etc...) tends to rise to the surface and I can't stop thinking about it. It IS like I have to deal with it all over again. That's why I don't do it anymore.... it's fucks up my high.

Yes, it is bad. It sometimes ruins relationships and friendships.

EquiS 07-15-2010 05:15 PM

if someone doesnt want to be you bf or gf or even just your friend just bc you smoke weed - they dont deserve you anyway and they wouldnt've been that great of "friends" anyway.

it's not THAT bad, but i on't think it's beneficial-ably either...it's just society votes for it to be highly bad, drug tests for work, laws, and stuff, than again it's just common sense, you know....

you don't have to think much when you are high

SuaveHighTimes 07-16-2010 07:17 AM

Re: is weed really that bad
 
People, especially young teens abuse the hell out of weed which in turn only beefs up the arguments against it. For some reason, some folks tend to think that to smoke weed you either have to roll a joint or two, fill a bong, roll a blunt, etc etc to get high when in fact all you really need is just a one hitter or two and youre set for 2-4 hours. If you need to be any higher than that then you probably shouldnt be smoking. Also, smoking before school or work or before anything that requires your full attention is just stupid and setting you up for failure. Like every thing else that inhibits your senses, it must be used responsibly and in moderation.

Being in a relationship with someone who smokes weed and you don't CAN be a problem. Especially when you're NOT the weed smoker and your significant other is. It creates a problem when they prefer weed over you.

You need to find a better dealer. Usually with weed you're going to find shit that's going to effect your body (indica) look out for sativas they are amazing. Sativas go straight to your head and wake you up. It's an all head high.

Good dealers (which are rare) will let you try out the merchandise first. If you feel like you don't want to even move it's Indica if it goes to your head and you get all giggly and shit it's a Sativa.

Maybe they're just fucking losers?
