Marijuana as Bud
Marijana is obviously not just for the sick, for many hundreds of years people have been smoking or ingesting the herb socially. In earler times, Marijuana was used in various religious rituals and ceremonies to bring together a tribe or group in praise of their God, hallucinogens were used also in these types of social, religious explortations. But what about today and the average recreational smoker, is anything wrong with him? Yes and No is my answer, yes because the average young marijuana smoker tends to abuse the herb by smoking it five hundred times a day, thus leading to unproductive use and an unproductive day. Instead of smoking maraijuana every time a bird flies in the summer, the individual should saver each and every experence, taking part only when he or she wants to enjoy the company of their friends in a very relaxed and social way in a perfect surrounding...out of the public's eye! Today's positive marijuana smoker, after smoking the herb for a little while starts to develope into a calmer, more friendlier person and becomes aware of their own motive for wanting the effects of pot. Another benefical use of marijuana is as a relaxant, after coming home from a hard days work, nothing could be more soothing then to enjoy a nice spot of pot in a comfortable chair!
If marijuana was legal it would be treated just as alcohol but abused far less, no smoking in public as like alcohol, social smoke houses much like today's alcohol bars but all pot would start out, many of them like Europe's legal weed contries they would be like coffee shops. There would be no infractment for growing one's own marijuana and of course all the possibilites of Hemp would be utilized in it's legal free growing state.
Now we move on to the most productive use of marijuana besides medical and industrial. Everyone's heard of the "mind-expanding" drugs, but what does it mean? these drugs are your basic hallucinogens, marijuana, opium and other natural drugs. When used properly they can tell you anything you want to know about your mind and open any door contained within. We will only talk about marijuana used in this such way, since this is a maraijuana website. It's far beyond us to say why drugs have always help the artist create but indeed he has used the drugs for inspiration. From painting and sculpting to writing and poetry, as well as music and philosophy, every art has its predecessors who obtained much inspiration from the drugs they used. What I am getting at here is that only the users knows why he or she takes marijuana or a drug and for what reason, only he or she knows if they have benefited from it or let it slowly waste their time and mind. A person can smoke the drug to clear their mind, fill their mind or inspire their mind, but it is always he or she that does not profit from lazy use, and that person usually starts a long path of abusing drugs instead of "using" them for his own personal and intellectual stimulus.
In conclusion, the drug can only be as beneficial as the user lets it be, but it can be as harmful and unproductive as the user lets it become.
