Interesting point, because on the other hand I am sure marijuana also has the capacity to give people the ability to see things in a light that one
might not get if constantly living in a 'sober' state.
From my own legal experiences and analysis of others, I have concluded that the initial effect marijuana has on practically everyone is the devolution
of the ego. This is where EVERYTHING stems from regarding marijuana.
For however many 'x' amount of years you are operating under your sober mind, a state of being designed strictly for survival and which is also
heavily influenced by conditioning, instincts and for a lack of a better word - psychology.
Although many would argue that this is how it's 'meant' to always be, the reality actually seems to suggest that this would constitute a very narrow
minded and almost autonomous life. When you first start getting 'high', it is almost akin to wiping the slate clean.
You become aware of your own consciousness and hence your thoughts and your actions to an extremely amplified state, because you are not viewing them
through the same restricted goggles you have been doing so for however many years.
This is where the paranoia arises, where the schizophrenia arises and where the other mental issues that have been documentated arise from.
If one is not aware that marijuana will cause the dissolution of the ego, and doesn't become aware during the process either, he will become prone to
misunderstanding the different states and therefore allowing dangerous imbalances to occur.
Regardless, this effect, by all means, is essentially a miracle, because a naturally occurring plant should NOT by chance cause such a PROFOUND effect
in us. It seems to disconnect what we can deem consciousness (or the 'soul') from the ego-based brain programming that it has been a slave to since
It's almost as if humans were 'meant' to actually use these plants past a certain point in our initial struggle to establishment comfortable
But of course, the effect can work in reverse. You can have consciousness that wants to do bad things, but it's logical brain coding of 'you'll go to
prison' is strong enough to help them suppress their desires.
When marijuana begins to remove their moral conditioning via 'law', they will eventually act out their bad desires.
But they are exercising their free-will none the less. And these are exceptional cases of humans. They lack what we have - empathy. It's not their
fault, but we must suppress them none the less unfortunately. Interestingly though, the marijuana effect may cause one who lacked empathy before to
gain a sense of empathy after.
And back to my original point - it has the ability to make you see things in a new light, top to bottom. Especially regarding the world and the
universe. It is very easy to tunnel vision yourself with the sober mind on an everyday basis. This might benefit you but it does not benefit our Earth
or our collective race.
Marijuana has the ability to temporarily, and ultimately permanently, un-do decades worth of indoctrination people have had into certain ways of
thinking about this reality and essentially 'wake' people back up to the control of their own thoughts.
The less control a person has over their thoughts (can't sleep at night because you 'can't stop thinking') the more ego-driven and hence code driven
they are than free. There is a very simple enlightenment that can be achieved from realising you are the master of your body as an external
This removes a very large percentage of power your 'thoughts' can have on you, because you become your thoughts.
This is the effect I believe marijuana has on people, and in that sense it can be very liberating. And sometimes that's exactly what people need to
turn around and say hold up, we are getting absolutely shafted with this reality - why is it like this?
What's the compromise? I agree that marijuana use should be temporary, for it can easily cause one to wish to replace their sober ego-based form with
their free high-based form and this causes you to dysfunction in MODERN society.
In modern society it should be used to cause the initial 're-birth' effect and the resultant soul-searching, and then that person should aim to
integrate what they've learnt into their wakeful 'sober' state.
Realistically, if we lived how we were 'meant' to live, smoking weed everyday shouldn't matter because ultimately you would have the ability and
capability to sustain yourself. In modern society, we don't have that capability because we are effectively forced to sustain ourselves through a
credit based work system (since land has been monopolised).
Therefore you must adhere to others standards even when it comes to earning your survival legitimately.
I've also come to realise that alcohol has the completely opposite effect. It shuts off your consciousness from your body and hence you become almost
completely (if not completely) a slave to the 'ego'. Yet, many people today will still promote alcohol but show absolute disgust at marijuana
This reality won't cease to amaze me lol.
Sorry for the essay by the way, I tend to splash a lot of my thoughts regarding a topic into just one post. Not specifically trying to start a debate
