Maybe you have seen the film ‘Reefer Madness’?
‘Reefer Madness’ is an old black and white movie that was released in 1936. In reality it is simply a propaganda vehicle that drives home the meaning cannabis causes insanity, extreme behaviour and sexual deviancy. Owing to its absurd and hysterical depiction the movie has since become a cult classic for all the wrong reasons. My numbers were so high that it is the butt of sniggers and giggles all over the world. I actually might add the results of inhaling cannabis are innocent of creating the laughter at this point. The film’s embellished meaning comically attempts to frighten its audience with all the subtlety as a machete-wielding psychopath! Rather than persuading viewers to avoid cannabis it gives you point-scoring ammo (even after 70+ years) for the pro-campaigners cause instead. Source
Frankly, the dubious ingredient in your joint, bong or space-cake does not feature highly on the set of dangerous drugs. Yet whether you are worried about your mental or physical health, the financial cost, the drudgery of living your life stoned or because you want to distance yourself from your current lifestyle, your good quit are as credible as any. Apparently, around 500 cannabis cigarette smokers in the UK look for treatment every week. That statistic proves two important things: a) cannabis truly has the probability of ruin lives, and b) you are not only in your desire to quit.
When cocaine and heroin addicts finally struck rock bottom they have all the reasons in the world to give up. With cannabis the drop is slow and scarcely observable. Its squeeze after existence is seemingly very gentle. So gentle in fact we get used to feeling sluggish and stoned and forget what it’s love to wake up in the mornings filled with energy and vigour. Instead, listlessness, reddened eye and drained skin firmness become normal. Even when it becomes apparent we should at least consider stopping, the benefits always appear weighted in favor of continuing.
Such is the subtlety of hashish most people have difficulty deciding if cannabis is their enemy or helpmate. The same drug it appears is able to soothe nerve-racking situations and cause nerve-racking situations by using anxiety and paranoia. Likewise, cannabis shows up to be a relaxant yet it’s not unheard of to see introspective self-doubt and lack confidence in interpersonal situations.
It’s the subtlety of cannabis that also creates the confusion over whether we could simply in the habit of smoking too much or mentally addicted to it. Whatsoever the truth of the specific situation is, it’s all too easy to trudge through your teens, twenties and 30s permanently stoned; yet feel terminally bored and starving of fun and leisure without it.
