"I love the ganj and am well aware of the medical benefits as well as its ability to get you high (duh), but I recently came up with a theory as to why weed is so alluring to so many people.
Unlike a lot of drugs out there, weed stimulates every single sense you have without you necessarily having to smoke/ingest it! The beauty of a nice bud for one (SIGHT), that sweet skunky SMELL, the FEELING of sticky resin glands all over your fingers when you break up the bud. Not to mention the TASTE of a nice smooth smoke and the SOUND of a nice fat rip of a bong or bowl.
Every single one of these sense-stimulating qualities makes me happy as hell, and the high just seals the deal as far as loving to smoke the herb. Maybe I'm just over-thinking it, but I really believe that whether we're conscious of it or not, every one that partakes probably does so because of this!!!
Anyone else feel this way as well?"check it

“We all need something to help us unwind at the end of the day. You might have a glass of wine, or a joint, or a big delicious blob of heroin to silence your silly brainbox of its witterings but there has to be some form of punctuation, or life just seems utterly relentless.”
― Russell Brand
“The amount of money and of legal energy being given to prosecute hundreds of thousands of Americans who are caught with a few ounces of marijuana in their jeans simply makes no sense - the kindest way to put it. A sterner way to put it is that it is an outrage, an imposition on basic civil liberties and on the reasonable expenditure of social energy.”
― William F. Buckley Jr.
“Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use... Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce [28g] of marijuana.”
― Jimmy Carter
“The drug war is a total scam, prescription drugs kill 300K a year, while marijuana kills no one, but they spend billions/year 'fighting' it, because pot heads make for good little slaves to put into private prisons, owned by the banks who launder the drug money, and it's ALL DOCUMENTED.”
