You know that feeling, deep down, that you know it's wrong? You know it's there. And it's very right. There's no statistic in the world, nor enough pot advocates who sell the drugs themselves saying "it's not addictive" "it's not harmful", and some people really eat that up. And then they laugh at people who listen to the GOVERNMENT while they listen to their drug dealers instead! All I'm saying is, close the door on this new "fad", the "next cool thing", and discover yourself through yourself, not through foreign substances.
There's too much feeling behind all of this. You either have had bad experience with this in your life or you have been around people with said experience. It's not "right." That feeling about it being wrong; there's so much factual/psychological study bullshit behind feelings and whatnot that it's all based on experience since you were a baby and the truth behind the moments that you learn later on because you don't have free will until you figure out that you do - which can be at any age. Basically, the feeling is from fear, having it branded into your mind before the break that it is "bad." It doesn't help that it's illegal because a lot of people pride themselves in their government (usually in [denied] hopes that they become apart of it in someway, someday) so they are more likely to be inclined to the laws.
I'm more of a 'do what you do to get along with what you have' kind of person. I make it work, whatever it is. "Resourcefulness" or whatever.
I have a few examples.
My step dad is a very, very angry man. He works hard, he takes care of his family, but he's always upset. When he smokes it makes things less stressful, he can afford it and uses it daily. (I really prefer the man when smokes as to when he doesn't.)
From family and friends I know a lot of people who when they smoke become more applicable. It's easier for them to do work, clean, and get things done in general. To most of these people pot isn't really that big of a thing and only do it on occasion, but it helps them out.
Mentioned this before, when I was a kid and was living with addicts they'd steal from us and sell our things. It was a must have.
It is addictive simply because it's a habit and any habit can become an addiction in some form or another.
It can get you in legal trouble, that's a given.
I also know too many kids that come to think they're awesome beyond belief because they're doing drugs. They spend the time they should be preparing their lives "hanging out" and being idiots. I'm not one for high school or any of those but learning how to drive and being able to be legal on the road is very important for not having a shitty future. Being able to get a job, even if you use the bus. I'm also not one to think of the future, but fucking up the present is a little too much.
I'm tired, I think I mentioned something about being indifferent earlier. Here's another few cents.
