God and Marijuana
What is Marijuana?
It is a mild hallucinogen. Meaning that in large quantities it has the potential to cause hallucinations. And in some people it can act as a hallucinogen in small quantities as well. Although it is a widely used drug, There is very very little actually known about it’s long term effects. To date there have not been any major studies endorsed by the government of Canada on weed and it’s effects. The majority of what I’m presenting to you is my own study based on interviews with chronic users and personal experiences.
Weed and youth
Although there are few willing to admit it there is a weed pandemic going on right now in western civilization regarding the use of weed. The majority of the users are youth, high school age. Between the ages of 15 and 21 it is most common on my study. Before you approach your child on their habit you should be armed with some facts first.
Long term effects of Marijuana use.
There is a term users use for the effects weed has on long term or over users. It’s called permafried. What it means is that the damage caused by the drug to the brain has reached the the point where it no longer able to function normally, but has the person in a permanent state of “High” Upon interview with long term users still functioning normally they stated that it is a little known fact in the chronic circles that you take 3 month breaks once a year to prevent yourself from becoming permafried. However this is only effective if a dependance hasn’t been made.
Studies Claim that there is no addictive chemicals within weed. However upon interview of various users of various age groups I uncovered immediately that it is in fact an addictive substance. People reported getting the “shakes” a common withdrawal symptom. Reported headaches, heart aches, body sickness. Experiencing cravings, such as smelling the substance where there is none, a general craving..
Collapsed lung is uncommon side effect of smoking weed. What happens is your lungs relax when you smoke it. When this happens your lungs no longer cough up the flem that’s created from inhalation of smoke. The more damaged the muscles become the less they will work. Eventually you stop coughing up the liquid that’s building in your lungs, this creates a chance that when your lungs exhale they will cave in on itself, called collapsed lung.
How does it affect you spiritually?
It opens you up spiritually, it is an open invitation to the spiritual, all hallucinogens are. It has been used to help guide people through spiritual quests, in other words, used as a potion in a sense, just like love potions are a sin to drink or possess or make, so is weed sin to use in help in contacting the spiritual realm.
What does the bible say about it?
It is used in alternative religions for deeper insight to their religion, that alone should tell you where the bible stands
Weed and the gift of prophecy:
During high school we had our psychology teacher tell us about what we do know about weed. He told a story about a girl who smoked it and knew she couldn’t handle it. That she spent a weekend running away from monsters because of it.
I knew I couldn’t handle weed but I smoked it anyway. Once you have the first puff you’ll always want more. However no high will ever be like the first one you had, you’ll be chasing the dragons tail as it’s called. Trying to get that high you had the first time.
Now spiritually I couldn’t handle it, this has been proven to me time and time again. But I always seem to make the same mistake over and over again of thinking I could handle it maybe this time. But I never could..
as I observe the people around me I’ve come to understand that the majority of the population is self medicating. You see there is a hole in man. We can be the most successful person in the world and still be dissatisfied in our lives. Our jobs, and victories and defeats eventually are not enough for a growing soul. But because of lack of understanding, or lack of will. People don’t turn to the one who can full that hole in our lives. God made a place for himself in our lives. It’s a basic need in our very selves. Without turning to God. We are robbing ourselves of developing further, beyond the point of just a job, just a house, dog, wife and kids..our lives are defined by the lords grace to show us himself, and the childlike nature of exploration renewed in us as we discover the hidden things the lord has planned for us…and the universe in a way that will question our old selves in such a way that we are no longer the people we once were.
