GOD PUT MARIJUANA ON THE EARTH FOR US TO ENJOY, AND IT HAS MEDICAL BENEFITS, TOO!

People (and by that I mean mostly pot smokers) send me emails or comments like this hundreds of times a week. Here are actual comments people left me, along with my replies:


Chris G.:

if you truly believe in god, then you would believe that cannabis is god's creation. How could a product of god be bad? Do you think that it is just a coincidence that cannabis has such medicinal value? Cannabis is here for a reason, and it will ALWAYS be here. Its crazy people like you that hinder the use of this amazing, natural resource.

Cindybin:

AARGHHHH you guys still don't get it! You always tell me that marijuana was put on the Earth by God, blah blah blah. OF COURSE IT IS "God's creation." But that doesn't mean He wants us to light up a joint, smoke it and get high! Can't you see that?? I am talking about RECREATIONAL DRUG USE. We shouldn't use mind-altering drugs to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", enjoy life, celebrate, socialize, etc. This is good morals and just plain common sense! I say the same things about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law. They are after the same psychoactive effect. And that is not good! A grown adult should set an example and not drink or smoke pot! What a thing to do!

And pot is ILLEGAL! You can get into serious trouble if you get busted! Kids need to remember this! It won't help to tell the judge that God put marijuana on this Earth for all to enjoy! Where I live, the judge would laugh in your face and throw you in jail for making excuses for breaking the law! Again, kids need to realize this!

But even if pot were legal, it doesn't make it right to use it to get high and stoned and have "fun"! What parent would ever raise their kids to grow up and do THAT? At any age? Most parents try to raise their kids with morals, values and common sense to know that this is immoral and just plain immature! And I know that many parents who would NEVER smoke pot because "drugs are bad" think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol. But they are hypocrites!

And if you guys are all so dang religious, always talking about God all the time, then you of ALL people should know better than to use a mind-altering drug to get high and have "fun". A religion is supposed to teach people to AVOID using those things, not encourage them to light up a joint and get high! Otherwise, what is a religion FOR? Heck, I wasn't even religious in high school or college and I sure never smoked POT. You had to be a totally different person to do such a thing! Nobody ever offered it to me or anything! And I was a teen in the 70s! Same for my husband!

And then after college I joined the Mormon church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). We have the Word of Wisdom which is direct revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. We are taught the moral and physical reasons to avoid using these things. This HELPS us! It is good to understand why we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs to have "fun". That is not what TRUE fun is!

But you shouldn't even have to be Mormon or religious to know not to smoke pot. It's just common sense! A grown adult should be well past the age where they'd want to use a mind-altering drug to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", celebrate, socialize, etc. What a thing to do! Again, people need to grow up and set an example!

AND THEN YOU BRING UP MEDICAL MARIJUANA?? Oh wow, you have really done it now. Now I have to add your comment to my huge folder filled with all the other THOUSANDS of comments and emails from "medical" users, supporters and growers who are just horrible. I have said over and over that I am NOT AGAINST MEDICAL MARIJUANA! That is a totally different issue! I am a nice person and of course would not want anybody to suffer, and if something like marijuana--or ANYTHING--truly helps a person with a true medical condition, then of course that would be a good thing!! I have even been trying for YEARS to write an article on the BENEFITS of medical marijuana. But I have yet to find a single decent person to interview to use as an example in my article! All the casual users rave about the medical benefits in order to justify getting high, and even the "medical" users I've talked to and seen online have been horrible, cussing me out, threatening me with death and bodily harm, attacking my religion, my looks, my sex life, making mean videos and websites about me, making fun of me for collecting dolls, revealing my personal information, etc. And of course they all use these lame excuses about how pot is safer than alcohol and cigarettes, and they all tell me that if I haven't TRIED pot, I can't possibly speak up against it, they all accuse me of being ignorant and self-righteous and judgmental, they all tell me to "educate myself", and many of them tell me to kill myself or say they hope that I did in fire. How can I support them when they are like THAT???? I have collected THOUSANDS of comments and emails from "medical" users, supporters and growers who are just terrible. Even the "nice" ones don't get it, and honestly can't see why it's wrong and immature to use drugs RECREATIONALLY. It's so depressing. I always thought MEDICAL users and supporters would be nice, and surely agree that we shouldn't use drugs to get high and stoned. I don't say anything that any other parent wouldn't say!!

If you had told me nicely that you are all about MEDICAL marijuana, I would have gladly supported you and offered to interview you for the article I've been TRYING to write about this. But you are just like all the others. Now I have to add your comment to my huge folder filled with all the other THOUSANDS just like you. I plan to use these in upcoming blogs and videos to show what people are like! The world needs to know!

Chris G.:

It can be hard to understand why someone would get so mad and defensive over smoking if you have never tried it. 

We feel that herb is a true gift to the world. It is more than "fun", it is an enlightening, peaceful experience that allows you appreciate and experience things that you otherwise wouldn't have even thought about. It also allows you to view yourself in a different light, from a different perspective. Those of us that smoke realize that what we are doing is a healthy high, we are not ingesting any man made chemicals, just mother nature, and we will never feel bad from the herb, just healthy and happy. 

So society continues to demonize the use of this plant, when those that smoke it cause no harm, and the people that will tell you that herb is "bad" are the ones that are lying to the people and brainwashing them to suck the money out their pockets.
At the end of the day, we all do certain activities because we like the way that it makes us feel. We do things because we get "high"; our brain releases chemicals that makes us feel nice. It doesnt matter if its shopping, snowboarding, or smoking, its all for the same reason. So what makes weed different?

The church and the government want you to believe that weed is bad so they can have control of your brain and attention, so that they can control your actions to their benefit. Look at you for example, the church, the government, has altered your judgement of this issue so much that you're practically doing their job for them. All these people claim how terrible weed is, lying to the people, misleading them with false information so that they can continue to shove their shitty prescription pills in our faces and keep minorities in prison. They are paid off to say these negative things about weed, and are probably smoking it themselves when the cameras aren't rolling. 

And if there was a god, why would he be against use of this plant? It is his creation, here to
give people a better quality of life. Doesnt cause any harm, if anything it leads you into a more peaceful lifestyle and helps you to think for yourself instead of believing everything you see or hear on the news. 

This has been going on for centuries and it will continue to go on forever and there is nothing you or anyone else can do to stop it. If there really was an issue then people would not still be cultivating this plant to this day.

Cindybin:

AARGGHHH OH I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Yet ANOTHER Internet person who says that if I haven't tried pot, I can't possibly speak up against it! I am so sick of hearing this! This is one of the main reasons I now realize we all need to speak up against pot even MORE, is because you guys honestly think that if we haven't tried pot, we can't possibly say anything bad about it! OH BROTHER!

And then you ADMIT to us all that you use this "herb" to become enlightened, blah blah blah.? THAT IS WHAT MAKES IT WRONG! That is why we are against it!

And it's not the "herb" that is bad, it is YOU and all the others just like you! THAT is why we are against pot! Do we really want people like you walking around actually USING mind-altering drugs?? Heck no! Look at you! Instead of being a nice, decent, mature guy and taking a stand AGAINST drugs, you honestly think that by telling me that if I haven't tried the "herb" that I can't say anything against it, and you honestly think that if only I knew how peaceful and enlightened smoking the "herb" makes you feel, I'd suddenly realize it's okay. YOU JUST DON'T GET IT!

And again, you must be the 200th Internet person just this week to bring up to me about God putting marijuana on the Earth, blah blah blah. I have said over and over that just because God put marijuana on the Earth doesn't mean He wants us to light up a joint, smoke it and get high! Can't you see that? And if you guys are all so dang religious, you of ALL people should know not to smoke pot recreationally! A religion is supposed to teach people to AVOID using drugs, not encourage them to get high! Otherwise, what is a religion FOR? I wasn't even religious in high school or college and I never smoked POT! Nobody ever offered it to me or anything! And I was a teen in the 70s! Same for my husband! And then after college I joined the Mormon church, which has direct revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. We are taught the moral and physical reasons to avoid using these things. This HELPS us. It is good to understand why we shouldn't use drugs to get high, buzzed and have "fun". That is not what TRUE fun is!!

But you shouldn't have to be Mormon or even religious to know this. It is just common sense! A grown adult should be WELL PAST the age where they'd want to use a mind-altering drug to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", celebrate, socialize, etc. And I am talking about alcohol, too! It's not just pot! Can't you see my point? You guys all think that just because I've said we shouldn't smoke pot, that I think that marijuana is some evil, deadly substance that ruins your life, and that I see nothing wrong with alcohol because it's legal and "Jesus drank wine" (which is the excuse all the booze drinkers use). But I feel the same way about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker except they aren't breaking the law! People need to grow up and set an example!

And pot is ILLEGAL! If you get busted, it won't help to tell the judge how "enlightened" and peaceful it makes you feel! Where I live, the judge would laugh in your face and throw you in jail for making excuses for breaking the law and getting high on drugs!! Kids need to realize this! I've seen kids go through hell in the court room, just for having an empty pipe! Even if the pipe wasn't theirs and they never smoked pot in their life!! But even if pot were legal, what parent would EVER raise their kids to grow up and get high?? At any age? And I know many of these same parents who would never smoke pot because "drugs are bad" think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol, but they are hypocrites! Again, a casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law. They are all after the same psychoactive effect, that "buzz" one gets from a mind-altering drug. And that is not good!

And you guys always try to compare smoking pot with activities such as shopping, watching TV, sex, going to an amusement park, etc. That isn't the same at ALL!!! We aren't purposely ingesting a mind-altering drug into our system when we do activities like that!!!

Comments like yours prove my point about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES. And I am talking about RECREATIONAL USE! 

Chris G.:

lol.....  i never said you cant speak against it if you havnt tried it, I said that you arent going to understand why people are so defensive about it and you arent going to understand why people do it if youve never done it. And yes, herb is very enlightening, it is a real eye opener, although I never said that you HAVE to use it to become enlightened. You have proven yourself to be very uneducated on this subject, you truly do not understand what I am saying and you are going to continue to twist my words around. You say that I am bad when I am simply defending my free will. How the hell do you expect people to respect you or your opinions when you cant even give a simple reason why weed and the people that use it are so "BAD". You expect me to believe that Im a bad person just because you're joke of a religion tells you that I am a bad person? Do you really think that you are better than everyone because you are a mormon and you have never tried pot? Get real lady. Mormon... lol more like moron. If youre dumb enough to believe that bullshit religion than I dont expect you to be educated enough to understand why using cannabis is not a bad thing. It is okay though because in a few decades you and your dumb religion wont exist anymore. Enjoy it while it lasts, because you are the last string of opposition.

Cindybin:

AARGGHHHH I UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE ARE SO DEFENSIVE ABOUT IT! It is because you are all immoral, immature pot smokers!!! You need to GROW UP!

And I am NOT UNEDUCATED ABOUT THIS SUBJECT! For the billionth time, I BELIEVE you immoral, immature pot smokers when you tell us why you use pot and what it does for you! And that is why I am against it! That is what makes it wrong!

And why do you guys ALWAYS accuse me of not telling you WHY "weed" is bad?? YOU ALWAYS SAY THIS! Even though I have spent 15 years online explaining over and over a billion times WHY it is wrong to smoke pot! I have said over and over that it is wrong to use drugs to get high and stoned and have "fun", because that is not what TRUE fun is! How many times do I have to SAY this??? It is so SIMPLE! I shouldn't even have to say it, you should just KNOW! What, were you raised in a barn or something???

And it makes me FURIOUS that you guys use my religion against me! I have only shared my religion to HELP you, to get you to see where I am coming from. And I always think that you will want to know more about the Church, and that you will thank me for speaking up and reaching out and helping you to understand. But you use it AGAINST ME! It is so frustrating!!

And then you always accuse me of thinking that I am "better" than anyone else just because I'm Mormon and don't smoke pot. Again, I do NOT think I am better than anyone else, and I never smoked pot even BEFORE I had religious beliefs!! Stop blaming my religion on my stance on drugs! I don't say anything that any other parent wouldn't say! Are all the nice, decent parents out there who say "don't use drugs" thinking that they are "better" than anyone else? Of course not! They are just saying a common-sense thing that any other parent says!!

And how mean and rude, to make fun of my religion. My faith means alot to me. I studied, pondered and prayed a long time before joining this Church over 30 years ago. It was a huge decision for me. Nobody in my family was Mormon, and I received flack from family and friends who believed weird things they had heard and seen. But the more I learned about the Church, the more I knew I had to join. I know there are SO many things written and said about Mormons that are twisted and distorted and just plain false. I read all that stuff over 30 years ago in the anti-Mormon books I found when I first tried to learn about the Church.

It is just SOOO frustrating. I try to share my religion with you guys, thinking you will want to learn more, and that you will thank me for speaking up and reaching out, and you reject it and say mean, terrible things!!! 

After this he said many more mean things, calling my religion bullsh*t and accusing me of lying awake at night fuming over "potheads", which is a word I never use but which pot smokers always accuse me of saying. They all think that I think that anybody who smokes pot is a "pothead" as if they are addicted and losers. At this point I gave up because I can see he is hopeless.

And then of course the very next comment I open, I have yet another Internet pot smoker saying much of the same thing, and accusing me of believing in "Reefer Madness" like they all do. Read on:

Mr. Blues:

I think god gave us the cannabis plant just like the other herbal plants for the service of man, for his face to shine, and for part of the holy anointing oil. God approves of using alcohol therapeutically saying planely that it makes the heart glad and consoles bereavement. It's also used in worship holiday if journey became too hard and painful. And since cannabis is safer than alcohol, there is abundant teachings in the bible suggesting it's ok to get a buzz from cannabis, and to use it as a medicine.

The world needs this plant to be free to help us survive as arguably the world's most beneficial plant. And if it's so divine and good for man, maybe using it regularly is good for us. You are coming off as overly judgmental in an area of personal freedom and false propaganda sometimes known as "reefer madness".

A little less hysteria please, we all know how to google and search youtube to find out the truth before judging against people like you keep doing. Harmless people should not be an outrage to you or anyone else.

Cindybin:

AARGGHHH I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! I just got done responding to yet ANOTHER Internet person just like you, and every time I make a reply, I think it will be the last thing I ever have to write, that surely you guys will understand! AND THEN YOU ALL STILL SAY THE SAME RIDICULOUS THINGS!!!

I have said over and over how FURIOUS it makes us all when you guys accuse us of believing in "Reefer Madness." You all think that I'm against pot because I think it's all dangerous and addictive and kills people. NOBODY THINKS THAT! Doesn't it even OCCUR to you guys that we are all against pot because it's a mind-altering drug?? Pot smokers ADMIT to us all the time online that they use it to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", enjoy life, etc. We BELIEVE them when they tell us why they use it and how it affects them! And that is why we are against it! That is what makes it wrong!!

And do research?? RESEARCH??? Research about WHAT? You guys always TELL us this! What do we need to know about pot that we don't already know?? Again, people ADMIT to us that they use it to get high and stoned and have "fun"!

And I have said over and over that we shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol!! Just because alcohol is a drug doesn't make it right!

And I have explained over and over that in the Mormon church, we have The Word of Wisdom which is direct revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. The Mormon church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is the true church, restored AFTER the Bible was published!!!

I hope the world sees your ridiculous comment. It shows that we all need to speak up against pot and that it should be illegal forever, with very stiff penalties! It is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! Like you! Do we really want people like you walking around actually USING mind-altering drugs?? Heck no!

TL;DR

Also +cindybin2001​:


A new national survey released today by the Pew Research Center reveals that a broad majority of Americans are ready to significantly reduce the role of the criminal justice system in dealing with people who use drugs.

Among the key findings of the report:

More than six in ten Americans (63%) say that state governments moving away from mandatory prison terms for drug law violations is a good thing, while just 32% say these policy changes are a bad thing. This is a substantial shift from 2001 when the public was evenly divided (47% good thing vs. 45% bad thing).  The majority of all demographic groups, including Republicans and Americans over 65 years old, support this shift.At the same time, there has been a major shift in attitudes on whether the use of marijuana should be legal. As recently as four years ago, about half (52%) said they thought the use of marijuana should not be legal; 41% said marijuana use should be legal. Today those numbers are roughly reversed – 54% favor marijuana legalization while 42% are opposed.  Just 16% say it should not be legal for either medical or recreational use.Two-thirds (67%) say the government should focus more on providing treatment for people who use drugs like cocaine and heroin. Just 26% think the focus should be more on prosecuting people who use such drugs.

But unlike you I back my shit up. You are in the minority so please stop saying that you don't say anything any other parent wouldn't say.
