Ghost in the Machine

It depend of how you use it I guess.. Yes it is, as I am been told many times over, a perfect painkiller, and should maybe even be legal - as such.. But as I know some who are using this stuff, not as medical using, but more as an bad habit, who they have been doing for many, many year.. And they even had to come to some clinic, to get the habit out of their system..

2 I am totally in agreement that Church have no place in Government, period. But that was not what I ask about..

I have been reading a lot of both the pro and con when it come what is commonly been known as Weed. And the policy from the government side is to make it illegal. And on the other side, we have the supporters who claim every single positive thing about the drug, and what it can do

But the fact is, in the legal sense of the word, that Weed is classified as an drug, and should be treated as such. Are I am bad person, who believe that the government know thing better than I do?. Are I am bad person because I disagree with you, when it come to the use of an drug that many indeed are using as a way of killing pain, or for the most part, to get loose from their life?

Have some "friends" who are known to use the stuff.. And I have to say, they have not been smarter over the year I have know them. Rather the opposite.. And when they have been smoking a lot of the stuff, their actions is just... silly at best.. I am not judging anyone who are using it, that is their case and up to what they decide with their life. But as long as the drug is ILLEGAL in most country - regardless of church or something like that it should be treated as an illegal substance.. Even that some claim it to be an perfect painkiller, who are better than everything else they have been using.

But if Weed, in the future is made legal, as an medical substance, and can be used in the same way that other legal drugs are been used.. Then I for one would have no problem what so ever with it. If WEED was made legal, and you cound go to your farmacoite, and request 5 gram of the stuff, to give you an painkiller for what ever medical need you have.. I would not say a word. That is something that is between you and your doctor. Not that something I would have to say.

It is NOT he USING per se that I am against. It is the MISUSE of the stuff that I am against.. And many, millions who are using weed, have no medical need of weed. They are doing it just for one thing, to get high and "Loose" it for some hour.. That is stupid in my book...


Sorry my bad english not my native language
