I completely agree with Bartel. I find people who make comments such as Moxley are immensely misinformed & likely very close minded individuals.
The scattered randomness found throughout the OP's posts on Alla way more likely contributed to other factors than marijuana, which I'm sure is why he made that comment. And Aurelius, no surprise you had to jump on that bandwagon.
There was a great commercial that used to air on local TV a couple of years back. It was a young kid talking about his older brother and how his older brother smokes pot. As he's talking, he's walking down to the basement. He's saying that his brother smokes pot but he doesn't break into cars or steal or beat people up and then he goes into the room where his brother is and it's all hazy with smoke with his brother sitting there on the couch just kind of staring around and the kid says, "Come to think of it, he doesn't do much of anything."
People who smoke pot occasionally don't cause any concern for me. People who smoke pot continuously might need to talk to someone. Doesn't matter if pot cures AIDS, if you haven't got AIDS you can't list its AIDS curative powers as a reason for you to smoke it. All of these extended diatribes in defense of pot have been put together and regurgitated by pot smokers for years to justify what doesn't need to be justified when done as an occasional thing. As with anything done to excess it raises certain concerns as a symptom of larger and more harmful issues, and chronic pot smoking frequently serves to prevent a person from dealing with those issues because they're just too **** comfortable while they're stoned. Take the pot away, however, and they typically have a hard time functioning. Generalizations, of course, which allow for exceptions to the rule. Which is why I didn't leap all over the "lololpotsmokinretard" bandwagon. Poke a little fun? Sure.
My experience is that when someone overreacts to defend something, it's usually because they're ashamed of something or feel like they're either being judged or about to be judged. Maybe a little paranoid? Dunno. Don't much care, either.
Extracting the total context of your post, I can see where you're coming from. Conversely, that commercial is a complete gross exaggeration of the effects of weed. You would only feel that stoned the first few times you smoked it, most other times you get a "buzz". For the purpose of this conversation, let's equate "Stoned" as equal to "Drunk" (which they are not, but it will help illustrate the point). Once you smoke moderately, or occasionally, you will likely not get "Stoned" from smoking, but rather you will get a buzz, much like when you have a few beers.
That commercial is a lie. I would consider myself a frequent smoker, though I don't "re-up" everytime my supply is low, but rather might wait a couple weeks to a month, with no issues at all. I am intelligent, motivationally driven (ahh, the irony), and guess what, most of my friends & family are the same way. My point - the bulk of people I know are the same way, NOTHING like an alcoholic, crackhead, pill addict, etc.
And as for trying to defend something as if people who smoke are ashamed, that really shows where you are out of touch - potheads, if you will, are VERY proud! We want people to know, we want to share our beautiful crop with a fellow member, all those things. Completely different than other remedies.
Take it for what you will. Like yourself, I don't care much, either.
