Peace, my name is Josh Saxton and from here on out I will be your one-stop-shop for everything Cannabis related. Here at my blog you will find posts pertaining to but not limited to laws, culture, opinions, photos, news and anything related to the world’s favorite green plant.
Drugs have been around since the beginning of time. They come in all shapes, consistencies, colors, if you can smoke them, swallow them, inject them or whatever your preference. At the end of the day it serves the same purpose; To get a buzz. For years we have been told that drugs are BAD, you know, “Just Say No”, Schools have implemented D.A.R.E. programs and done much to keep drugs away from children and push them in the direction to become well functioning adults, right?
Right, but not completely, I remember having to go through a D.A.R.E program and I also remember the police officer telling me that, marijuana in particular is a “gateway drug.” They showed us television shows like “Intervention” of people with addictions to hard drugs. These people were on every drug in the book, crack, cocaine, meth, extremely addicted to alcohol. However, not once in any of those shows did I see someone being treated for marijuana addiction. But they all said the same thing. “So and so, started smoking marijuana at 14.” As a teenager in high school, unless your home schooled you probably know where you can get weed and from who. Why? Its the SECOND easiest drug you can get your hands on, immediately behind alcohol simply because, there is probably some liquor in your house right now! Drinking has been a tolerated social thing forever, despite the fact that way more people have died from something alcohol related. According to drugwarfacts.org an estimated 29,001 people died from alcohol alone. You know how many died from Cannabis use? ZERO.
So my point is this, if you smoke that joint and drive you have a much better chance of jamming out to your favorite song than hitting someone or something with your car, or even driving too fast…I bet you can drink all that vodka and drive, now can you??
