I honestly believe that it makes u smarter or at least let’s u use more of ur brain nd be a lot more creative.is it bad? “
I honestly believe that people who smoke dope only THINK it makes them smarter and more creative, because that’s what drugs do – they alter one’s perception of reality. In my college days, I was acquainted with someone who smoked pot regularly. He once showed me a “brilliant” article that he wrote while under the influence. It was the biggest piece of garbage I have ever seen; one rambling disconnected sentence after another. He was still a little high when he showed it to me and could not even explain to me the intention of this great piece of literary achievement. We were in the same class, so after that semester I did not see him again, but I can tell you for a fact that he thought he was more creative, smart, and productive while doing weed. He was not.
Maybe there ARE exceptions to this, just as there are people with a high tolerance for alcohol. But Hashem should spare us all from being on the same road being driven by people who think they are perfectly ok or even BETTER than ok while under the influence of this or any other drug. I am opposed to the legalization. I am in favor of decriminalization, however, because I think our resources can be better spent going after real criminals, unless someone commits a crime or causes an accident while doing dope. And I am totally in favor of legal medical marijuana use for people with glaucoma or undergoing chemo.
