Could Marijuana Save the Planet?

https://www.questionsaboutmarijuana.org

Changing Minds about Marijuana


I want you, yes you, the one who came to Questions About Marijuana to see what it is all about, I want you to think.  This may seem like an odd way to start an article about marijuana;  however, if you will bear with me for just a moment, it will hopefully all make sense.

I want you to go outside yourself for just one moment in time and think.  Stop thinking about the news, politics, what you will eat for supper, what you will watch on tv, when you will go to bed and all of the other billions of thoughts that ramble through your mind on a hour by hour basis.  I want you to think about one thing.

Planet Earth


Why should you, yes you, think about planet earth?  After all, there is nothing that one little human being could do to save the Earth, right?  WRONG!  In reality, saving planet Earth begins and ends with you!  Now that we have that out of the way, think about how you would save the earth.  Would you make it cleaner, greener, a more healthy and pleasing place for you and your kdis to live?  Would you see that the politicians and industrialists no longer have control over the planet and try their dead level best to kill it off?  Would you do that?  Could you do that?

This may seem like an arduous task to you.  Ok, its hard, right?  Its hard to think about you, yes you, Mr. or Ms. human being having the control over the entire planet, but in reality, changing minds is something that we can all do each and every day.  We can change the way we think by what we think.  We can change what we do by doing something different.  We can live differently simply by making a conscious effort to do so.

Now that I have melted your head, perhaps I have begun to make you see that YOU can make a difference in the planet Earth for all eternity.  Thinking about a plant may not seem like a big deal to you, but it is.  There is a plant on planet Earth that grows and thrives and holds more potential for good in the world than almost any other thing.  It is not some drug.  It is not some new fangled invention that some Youtuber has come up with to make money.  It is not some notion that some scientists have gotten together to sell humanity.

It is a simple green, growing and thriving plant that is real, here and it is alive.  It is ready to tell humanity that there is a different way to live.  It is a chance to rid yourself of the hold of pharmaceuticals, doctors and healers that make money from you.  It is a simple little plant that can cure the energy crisis forever.  It is a plant that can supply cheap efficient energy that heals the planet, not destroy it.  It is a little green plant that can cure the problem is transportation around the globe.  From this little green growing plant, there comes the opportunity for life.  There comes the opportunity for healing.  There comes the opportunity for wellness.  What is this miracle plant?  Where does it come from?  Where does it grow?  What must it be called?

Marijuana


At this point in time, you may THINK that you know all about marijuana that there is to know.  Well, chances are pretty good that you only know about marijuana as being a drug that is evil and destructive and leads to other drug uses like heroine and crack.  If you think like this, then please, click off, go away and peddle your misbegotten religious views somewhere else.  I do not choose to listen to those at all.  I want to hear what marijuana can do for me and this planet and all of humanity to make it better, safer, cleaner, greener, more prosperous, healthier and a place that we can all exist in peace.

Marijuana-The New Conspiracy Theory?

https://www.questionsaboutmarijuana.org

What If?


What if all of the hype, fanfair, popularity, supposed medical benefits, the natural highs being talked about all over social media were nothing more than a diversion?

What if all the rantings and ravings about marijuana were nothing more than a plot.  A sinister plot to overtake the minds and thinking of average people to a more advantageous endeavor?

What if the manipulations, the theories about getting rich growing marijuana were simply a way to get more people involved in the industry so yet another take over of average American citizens would be a definite possibility?

What if sedating the minds of Americans could allow for a super power to be introduced without them even knowing or caring about it?

What if this were absoluely true?

What would YOU do about it?

Once, Religion was the Opiate of the People


To be more clear, the thought behind that statement simply says that changing thought changes people.  To put it into more modern terms.  Could marijuana, in fact, be the actual new opiate of the people?  Could it be that we as a race could become so benign, so apathetic, so uncaring that it would be entirely possible for there to enter into our world a new super leader for all of mankind?  Who would this leader be?  Would he be the return of The Savior, or something quite different?  Is it, or would it be possible to absolutely and totally take over human beings, make them do, say and live exactly as was wanted to be for an evil and tyrannical leader of some sort to rule the entire planet?

Is Marijuana Good or Evil?

Depending on the view, marijuana and all that it could do for humanity, the planet and The Universe in which we live could be being sold as absolutely and totally good.  After all, look at all that can be done with marijauna:

  • Marijuana can help to heal the human body.
  • Marijuana can be used to generate electricity
  • Marijuana can be used to build homes
  • Marijuana can be used to build vehicles
  • Marijuana provides jobs
  • Marijuana provides relief
  • Marijuana provides relaxaction
  • Marijuana provides fun
  • Marijuana can become the savior of the planet earth by ridding the need for fossil fuels

Having said all of this, is marijuana in fact, good or bad?

How Do You Afford Marijuana?

 
https://www.questionsaboutmarijuana.org

 

With the Inflated Price of Marijuana, How Does Anyone Afford to Use It? 


That question for Questions About Marijauna is one of the best of all time.  The reason for the timely question of how do you afford marijuana is simply that most people, most average people, most working people simply doi not, cannot and will never be actually able to use marijuana products or the expensive by products for fun, leisure, health, wellness or any way at all.  The very thought of buying marijuana at over $150 bucks an ounce is staggering.  Now think about this.  One little ounce of the prized weed, the purified and glorified herb cost #150 an ounce.  One shot glass full of weed for #150 bucks!  WTF?  How can you possible afford to use marijuana in today.s economy?

Most working people in the US today earn minimum wage.  That is around $9 per hour.  Now consiider that this $9 an hour job yields you about $72 per day minus taxes, which puts it about $50 bucks for a good hard days work.  That $50 bucks x 5 is $250 bucks a week x 4 is about $1000 bucks a month. One little ounce of ganja is $150 bucks.  How long this lasts you depends on how much you love to smoke it.  Not counting that expensive bong you bought to embibe your favorite spice with.  Say, at a less than possible price this is about $250 bucks.  So now, you have to pay rent, buy groceries and gas with the rest of that salary.  If you are single, MAYBE you can make it.  If you are married with kids, then get in line at the Social Security Office because the Governement is going to have to help you to survive!

Knowing All That, How Do YOU Afford to Use Marijuana?


I am not trying to be a downer at all here.  I believe people should be able to do exactly what they want to do.  I am not a preacher or a conveyer of bad news.  I am a simple news reporter which asks questions and hopefully finds answers.  This particular question eludes me though.  What do you do to support your weed habit?  Do you go get a second job?  Do you put your wife to work so that you can use marijuana?  How do YOU afford to smoke weed?

And Talking About the G Word?


Is there a Federal subsidy that helps you to buy marijuana that I do not know about?  Is there a special underground organization that is dedicated to letting everyone that wants and needs a mary fix to be able to get it at a special price?  Is there some way that you secretly afford marijuana, but refuse to tell others your secret?  Do you grow your own?  OMG.  There is another question for Questions About Marijuana!

Marijuana for Thanksgiving?


A Look at Thanksgiving Day 1970


Thanksgiving ?ay, 1970, started off crisp and cold.  Feeding the cattle was the first order of the day on the farm in the way back.  Colder weather always meant paying just a little more attentio to all of the livestock on the farm and the chores went on no matter what the day was.  Mom, busy in the kitchen proparing that big old bird, with all of the smells coming from the home made the senses reel in preparation for sitting down to the dinner table precisely  @ 12 noon.  There was no deviation from breakfast lunch and supper as far as times were concerned.  In Texas, the meal was always ready and you just better come and get it, or she would throw it all out.  That was plenty enough warning to get everyone in the fileds to come running.  Man, I tell you that big old bird was golden brown with the best tasting dressing and giblet gravy that ever passed a Texas table.  The very thought of that turkey is enough to bring back the fondest memries of the growing up on a farm and ranch in the Texas Panhandle..

The house, the farm and all that was done to earn a living was directly related to hands on work.  There were no vacations, no time off, no sick days and certainly no compaining about not feeling good on this day.  There was no charity, no food stamps, no cell phones and nothing but good, honest and hard ass work.  That was growing up in Texas where I came from.  I can still  smell the fresh turned earth.  The days were hard, sweet and good. 

Thanksgiving Day was also traditionally one where the men gathered together in another room and began cleaning their shotguns in preparation for the hunt.  Basically8 anything and everything was in season to these guys and was always made that much better with a couple of fifths of Wild Turkey.  For some strange reason, in Texas, guns, Wild Turkey and Thanksgiving Day just went together.  All the days that this author remembers drinking, shooting and eating were involved.  It was a rare thing indeed for their to be a sober soul, man wise, in the house on that day.  We thought nothing about this at all, it was just what it was.

Thanksgiving Day 2019


Mom, bring out the good bong, company is coming over!

On Wednesday evening, Mom just got off work and headed off to the local Cracker Barrel Restaurant.  This tradition began back a few years ago when she started a successful career in banking.  Gone were the days when the old bird was cooked at home.  The flavor and smell of Cracker Barrel was good, but could never compete with the good warm feeling that the cooking bird gave to a home.  The invitations were all sent to the relatives to come on over for Thanksgiving Day at our house.  Everyone from the grandparents to the aunts and uncles and of course all of their kids were invited.  That day, Cracker Barrel did pretty well just on this family alone as there were a lot of hungry people headed to the old hacienda in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Now in case you do not know much about Tulsa, this is a thriving city built on the Arkansas River.  It is the fastest growing city in the US and believe me when I say that the turnpikes attest to this!  The rare thing about Tulsa is that it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  Green abounds in the spring and summer and nowhere is the scenery any more breathtaking than here.  Other than that, Tulsa is the new home of legalizaed marijuana.  This shocking occurrence just happened a few short months ago and literally, mom and pop marijuana dispensaries are cropping up everywhere.  There are few places that you can go without seeing these and the once ultra-conservative thinking people of Tulsa, Oklahohoma, are beginning to spread the good word about the benefits and solutions of using markijuana.

Now, instgead of the men gathering in the back of the home for booze and guns, they turn to a more simplified experience of bringing out the "good bong" which is only used when company comes.  The smoking will begin as soon as the guests arrive, and honesly has been ongoing since awakening in the morning.  Good feelings of peace, harmony and fellowship follow the trail of African Broccoli as the tokers spend their quality time enjoying a before dinner high.

The Devil's Lettiuce is popula in this household and there is simply no issue amongst the old and young as they happily enjoy the journey.

Have Things Changed So Much?


In this author's opinion, the answer would be yes.  The Thanksgiving Days of yesteryear were always filled with controversy and drama.  The gathering of the family always meant that someone somewhere weas going to get their feelings hurt.  There seems to be none of this in the modern times.  The doobie seems to take the edge off the drama and allows everyone to just be.  Can that be a bad thing?
