I've been smoking weed EXCESSIVELY for over 6 years and I'm here to tell you that it's not all it's cracked up to be. When I say excessively I mean I smoked between 20 and 30 j's a day...no puff puff give either, all to myself.
I stopped smoking because it triggered great depression as well as mild schizophrenia in me. I was beyond paranoid, to the point of not even trusting my family. Became a total reclusive. Also after smoking it for so long I started having seizures towards the end of using. You never know what you're getting from these dealers anymore because half the f***ers lace it with something to give you an extra "buzz" and don't give a f*** about you, all they care about is the money.
I'm telling ya, to all those pot activists out there you are living in denial. Sure I had a blast the first 5 years while on the stuff, and no it's not a gateway drug...but there WILL be a time when you realize hey maybe this stuff is what's f***ing with me, not my friends, not my family...it's the weed. If you're not growing it yourself, it's not safe.
I could go on and on about the negative effects of marijuana, and if I posted on this site 6 months ago I would have been one of those people swearing I'd be smoking it until I die, but things change fast especially when you see your mental state deteriorate before your eyes. All the negative talk about weed isn't talk anymore, it's the truth and I had to find out the hard way.
That's what my dad said... about it being laced with other stuff now. I didn't want to even say anything about it before, but my dad has been smoking pot since he was twelve years old. That's very personal, and I don't tell people about it, not even my best friends. Guess what...
So you're all bs'ing yourselves when you say that it's not. I grew up around pot, so I know what it does to people, families, lives..
My dad is a sweet, wonderful and handsome man. Pot doesn't make him act stupid. What it does is make him depressed now to the point where we're left wondering if he may be bipolar now.
It's also made it to where he's never been able to apply for a job due to drug testing. He has tried to give it up, but it's an addiction and a strong one. It's not something he talks about either.
I don't even know why I'm saying this. Nobody seems to understand really, and I'm sure no one cares about my life. I'm just trying to shed some real experience on the issue.
