Marijuana Makes You Depressed?

I recently was at a Birth Day Party and some one at the party was explaining how Marijuana saved their life. I was excited to hear that and joined the conversation. Some old guy at the party said,

"Marijuana makes you depressed", It is not good for you".

I was shocked he had the nerve to say that to the face of some one who's life was saved from it.

I joined the conversation and said,

"Oh really? How bad is it for you? Because it sure looks like you are sipping on something right now that is ten times worse than that. People die every day and it is caused by the crap you are drinking right now".

He was drinking Rum & Coke.

He replied back and said, "Pot is a gateway drug. It ruins lives"

I replied back said,

"Pot doesn't ruin lives. They ruin them selves."
"And I am sick and tired of people calling something a gate way drug. Nothing is a gate way drug. The drug dealer is the gateway for more drugs. He wants to make more money. A drug dealer will always offer something else." If it was legal, we wouldn't have to find drug dealers".

He replied back and said,

"Ok, you make a good point but it is debatable."

The person who claimed his life was saved replied back and said
"It is not debatable for me. I could be dead today" You want to debate life?

I also added,

"I've had friends who died from alcohol. I've had friends who took pills,drank and never woke up again. My father was in the military who got kicked in the teeth knocked out in Iraq and got jumped by Muslims but survived, but came back to America to be drugged up by a psychotic psychologist who claims drugs are good for you, but their kind of drug".

He looked upset and said,

"I am sorry about that. I am not for war and what we are doing is not a good thing."

I asked him if he was a Democrat or Republican.

He said, "Democrat"

I then, asked, "Did you vote for Obama"?

He put his head down in shame and said unfortunately yes.

I replied back with a big smile on my face and said, "I voted for Gary Johnson".

He laughed and said, "The 1 percent huh? I always wanted to meet one of you guys".

I replied back and said, "Nice to meet you sir, but I think its time to wake up."

He then went back to Pot debate and said, "Medical Marijauna is fine I guess, but to make it legal is crazy". I know friends who are depressed all the time smoking that stuff and they all wine with Conspiracy theories".

I started grinding my teeth a little and told him, "I wonder why they are depressed? Maybe because Marijuana is a great tool to see through all the bull shit. I seriously can tell if some one is lying by smoking weed. Once I smoked I started seeing through it all. It makes you think more outside the box. So maybe every one is starting to realize we are just slaves"

I wish I added this. The only thing drinking does is it makes you stupid.

He never smoked before. Not once he said. I told him maybe he should try it some time before you go judging it.

Conversation ended but we talked a little more about other things. But seriously... Do you guys think Marijuana makes you depressed?

On an upside note. He heard about Rand Paul and likes Ron Paul. I told him to vote for Rand if he makes it. He said he would look into it because Hilary scares the heck out of him. So their are Democrats out there who do not like Hilary.

Love this idea...

I think this idea would really boil all the BS down to the fundamental reality...."is all that BS your talking about opposing or embracing tyranny?"

That's what we really need is a return to common sense and a strong foundation or understanding of what things actually mean....cause people in general are extremely stupid. It's almost like teaching a baby, you gotta keep at it, and explain and break things down over and over and over again until finally they catch a glimpse of light.

Good Idea!

Sounds profitable!

P.O.T. needs all the help out it can get brotha... Thanks..

Spread the word.

If you know anyone who knows anything about starting up a website, I have no clue in that department.

I do have an attorney, very squeaky clean record, doesn't do anything, smoke/drink/anything, who could head it. My pops. He's mad cool and a die-hard liberty guy too. It's half his idea. I came up with the name.

I really don't care about profit. I know that sounds dumb. But I'm willing to lose out personally to help push cannabis de-criminalization / legalization. Profit is great though, and will be needed to some degree to spread it further.

Nothing beats Word Of Mouth, though!

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?


I know just enough about website design to get in trouble - check out http://richgrise.tripod.com . That's fairly barebones, but some years ago I wrote the HTML wrapper for http://www.abiengr.com . (the boss came up with the content, I just formatted it.)

Please don't associate that website with pot - they're a real company, and I wouldn't want them or me to get in any trouble talking about "illegal drugs" and stuff - I only show you the site so you can see what I can do.

Or could some years ago - I'm a little rusty, but with some motivation (like People Opposing Tyranny) it wouldn't take me very long at all to get back up to speed, such as it is. I don't know how to do fancy-schmancy schtuff, like flash and trash, but you didn't want that anyway, right? I'm retired, so I generally spend my time surfing the 'net anyway, except the time I spend watching "The Big Bang Theory" and old reruns from the days when TeeVee was still good. ;-)

You can still get a free page at www.tripod.com, and amazingly, they even support CGI scripting - that's how I was able to bypass the big banner ads. (it still has the popups, but I defeat them on my local machine with a hosts file: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm but that's a different topic anyway,) And if you want to pay _them_, you can put up a page with no ads. Of course, you could try to sell your own ad space (check the terms and conditions of your host) - I don't know how to do that yet, but either of us could look it up. Come to think of it, I don't know what Tripod's policy on third party ads is, it being free and all with their own ads, but that wouldn't take long to find out.

And you don't need to go to Tripod - as far as I know, there are still website hosting places, but not free.

Go ahead and email me at richgrise at lycos dot com - put something in the subject line, like "WEBPAGE DESIGN HELP" so that if Lycos's spam filter puts it into my spam folder I'll be able to find it.

You can go to http://www.whois.com to secure the name, if it's available.

Hey, kewl!

Of course, I'd expect you to foot the bill for registering the name, but I'd be more than happy to donate my "services" wrapping some HTML (HyperText Markup Language) around your content to make it a webpage.

I'll be looking forward to your email!

Or reply here - I usually check the Daily Paul every day anyway.

Freedom is my Worship Word!


I'll start checking into that.

Will get back to you.
