Substance abuse: Medicinal vs. Recreational


General Talk

Alright...just watched your video. You have many good points. But keep something in mind...everyone has their own passions and gifts. I love animals but PETA is not where my calling is to put forth all my energy. I respect your thing...totally. One thing you did though was say how the pot activists use the alcohol thing...but then later you went on to say that's your stance on it as well. You end up just upset sounding that those peeps are not putting forth their energy to your passions. I don't eat Kelloggs btw and I was crackin up there, but honestly I see your point and yet see it kinda from both ways I guess.Didjeridurian said:
This is a video I made for my Raw Natural Living blog a while back. It may ruffle some feathers but it seemed relavent.

I do know that eating raw cannabis causes some strong laxative action from what experts have said and I don't think it's recommended, although not 100% sure about the latter but pretty sure.Didj...I am working towards becoming natural. I am far behind you that's for sure. I wish someday I could be completely free and close friends and family and my doctor know this. My body is seriously damaged though at this point, it's too late maybe. I wish my nervous system would heal and I didn't need anything. When I go off pot then I end up needing xanax. I end up with such bad anxiety and panic attacks. Earlier this year in May I had an operation and was having real bad attacks. The meds were making me so sick...the xanax and darvacet, so I refused to take them and it got extremely bad. Which seemed to in turn by not taking them cause furthere damage to my nervous system. But taking them is like disintegrating to my system. I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't. It's not a good thing. I can't journal anymore cause of my hands being so bad, the nerves. It's super hard for me to close buttons on my daughters clothes...sometimes actually impossible. Xanax makes me turn yellow now...like drinking. Those tranq will literally kill me because my brain thinks it's alcohol...I start to get dope sick for it and I experience the same kind of withdrawl as alcohol. And Didj...once you become physically addicted to alcohol as bad as I did yes it is a disease...or morphs into one. I've had over 200 seizures from alcohol withdrawl. I stopped drinking once for 2 yrs...drank one night...and had seizures for the next 4 nights, as usual. Like I didn't skip a beat, kwim? Pot is the best medicine I've found so far. Do you really think you could help someone like me with your raw diet instruction? Think there's a better chance of recovery in a physical sense of healing? I am dead serious about what your opinion is. Because now like I can't stand chronic pain and it makes me irritable...which irritability is even worse than the pain. Sorry this is getting so long so btw. And I am still around the AA fellowship but rarely attend a mtg. anymore...just thought I'd add clarify that. They are still family to me. Because I could say a lot of stuff about AA and what I don't like about it...but that's another topic, lol.

Also...I want to make clear that I'm not saying cannabis is for everyone. I would never push it on anyone and will not allow my daughter to partake until she's 21 if she even decided to. I do not advocate teenagers using pot or alcohol or monster drinks or anything addictive. They should be concentrating on their studies. I became an alcoholic at the age of 12. I feel very strongly about this.

K, I watched it.First let me say, the "gate-way" theory has already been debunked over and over but let me make a point...I stole a sip of whiskey from my dad at 3 yrs old...it was like candy! They didn't allow me to drink but later on I became an alcoholic. Now...just because I had a pre-disposition to alcoholism...does that mean that others cannot drink responsibly and lead happy, fruitful lives? Ofcourse not. Just because I and thousands of others cannot handle alcohol...should it be outlawed?Ofcourse lots of people who try any drug will be one whom cannot handle it and should probably abstain alltogether if they can't moderate. And yes they will become addicted.I don't mean to sound uncompassionate at all...I have huge compassion for addiction! I've been around AA since I was 16 and I'm now 37. So I have many addict friends...a lot of peeps in AA are addicted to anything they can get their hands on...not always just to alcohol.Just my 2-cents. ;)

RBN...that's a great point. Because that paranoia causes stress and stress causes sickness and spirtual ramifications too. And I've experienced it. I'm gonna watch that video right now.

There is scientific , medical evidence of the benefits of cannabis. Smoking cannabis isn't necessary and it's a waste of the medicinal properties. Vaporizers and even more better to digest it has real medicinal value. It is an anti-seizure med, pain med, nausea med, has shrank tumors in pateints, is good for asthma, good for panic attacks and PTSD and anxiety, it's a laxative...it has saved severe closed head injury patients from death in the first few hours after trauma. Ok...I could clearly go on and on. Cannabis is indeed good for people.

What's the weirdest question you've been asked towards your dreads?


General Talk

Funny stuff. I think that 311 song, "Who's Got The Herb?" is to blame as far the weed thing goes, lol.
