If what you said ^ is true, You could easilly go to say that because tobacco gives you a buzz and therefore something you dont feel normally feel, its an altered state of mind. As well as being "horny" or craving sex lol. No... What...? Have you ever smoked? Im not trying to be a smart asshole im serious, have you smoked? I have been trying to say this to people for years. And not all of the people who sell weed are thugs mind you... And I the way prohibition turned out with alcohol will be similar to the effect of what will happen when (yes when) weed is decriminalized nationally. During prohibition the amount of people who consumed alcohol rose ENORMOUSLY. Once it was repealed the percentage of drinkers dropped drastically. I think less people would smoke weed if there wasnt a risk. Yes. Thank you. You would be surprised [Fat Elf] how many people smoke and become more lively. People who you thought to be in deep states of depression. And whether you believe this or not; Its been scientifically proven that smiling and laughter are healthy for you in many ways. One of which would be depression. Being that the more you smile and laugh, you mentally become more content with life. And, well, happy. I can say this for myself and every other pot smoker in the world, marijuana makes you laugh. Laughing is smiling on steroids. When I am regularly smoking weed Im so much happier than i would be when Im not. Dont get me wrong, I do not depend on it, and I can be happy without it. But why wouldn't you WANT to be as happy as you could be? That puzzles me.
