This popped up this morning on YT


I thought the subject worth examining. Deep thought, well reasoned conclusion:

I don’t do this stuff, haven’t in forever. Would if it were legal, but it’s not, so I can’t. The chemical structure was one of the most fascinating parts in the presentation, and the modifications made to the original plant to achieve them. I was interested in the CBD, which is the actual legal part you CAN buy and use, versus the THC that gets you high, and is therefore the illegal part. The reasoning and comparison to alcohol prohibition was another sound component. Watch this and see if you agree. Comment on points you agree or disagree with, but write them down as they come to you, so you can see if that point is answered before you hit the keyboard in joy or trauma.

Kurzgesagt  gives some pretty damn good thought, and pulls very few punches. Fun channel for the mind to wander down.

    I have seen various people destroy their lives with heroin, cocaine, speed, prescription drugs and alcohol.

    I have never seen anyone destroy their life with weed. The worst effect seems to be that they are unambitious and satisfied with low level employment.

    There’s some impairment of short term memory when you’re stoned, so if you want to win at Black Jack by counting cards, it’s best if you don’t get stoned before you play. Most of that effect is gone within 24 hours and in a week or so, it’s completely gone.

    That’s my observation of friends and family over the last 50 years.

    The point has been made that you wouldn’t want the pilot of your airplane to be smoking a joint. True enough, but I’d prefer that to the pilot drinking a bottle of Scotch. If I really had my choice, the pilot would have a nice cup of strong coffee, cream and sugar optional.

    Smoking a bit of weed doesn’t do near the terrible things that damn near everything else does, and may be just the thing for curing what ails you. I must agree with the original CBD vs THC balance though. CBD has been proven to do good things for you, and THC takes your mind off it anyway.
