Marijuana Makes You Depressed?Submitted by LibertyOrDeathNJ on Sat, 08/24/2013 - 03:21
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.
