Marijuana: Fooled by the Sales Lines

The facts are that marijuana is a poison. It can stay in the body and accumulate, so basically you can end up with a body saturated with poison.

I go a bit crazy when I hear statements like, “Drugs have always been a part of our culture.” or “Kids are going to take drugs no matter what we do.”

A friend of mine once told me the way to tell a successful lie is to ensure that it contains a little bit of truth. That statement sort of went over my head at the time, but looking back on 30 years, I’d say my friend was spot-on.

Here’s my top 10 list of marijuana sales lines:

  1. It’s all natural.
  2. It expands your mind.
  3. It makes you more creative.
  4. It keeps you calm.
  5. It helps you concentrate.
  6. It’s not addictive.
  7. It’s not as bad as alcohol.
  8. It is an herb.
  9. You don’t get a hangover.
  10. It’s a medicine.

There’s some truth to each one of the above. However, the drug eventually steals creativity, steals concentration and eventually makes you more stressed out.

I don’t want to get into some long debate on this. It’s simple. Marijuana is essentially a poison and it can stay in your body for years and years and years. Somehow, I don’t think that’s too good.
