Well all be! WOW! Would someone please inform John that users
of "dope" of this sort does not produce hallucinations?
Talk to almost all street cops John, they would much rather
deal with a person influenced by THC, which is the active ingredient
in Cannabis, than to deal with a drunk. The person on "pot"
there I said it, just gets the munchies and wants to lay down
and go to sleep. Drunks are seldom non-violent, cause many accidents
and deaths annually. I have dealt with both types hundreds of
times in my many careers going back to early 70's, and the results
have never differed except for the amount of violence one person
can perpetrate on another when drunk. I have never in my long
career had to deal with a violent pot head. Oh, and no I am
not nor have I ever been a user of pot. I have observed a person
on pot function and be a contributing productive member of society,
and am always amazed, having been fed the same falsehoods you
seem to have latched onto.
Many in our world use this
"herb" rather than big pharma drugs, most of which
are version of opiates, to relieve their pain syndromes. I have
never observed any drunk perform in like manner, but have observed
countless that believe they can. The "dope" as you
call it will not in fact enhance performance, drunks on the other
hand believe they are invincible to the point of not caring for
man nor beast. True, it is a crime now to use this "dope".
No argument there. Just get your facts together John and maybe
cork the old bottle more often and let sleeping dogs lie, or
run as is the case. Personally I think they are dopes for trying
it. Are they just trying to not feel their hand freeze to the
rail? Simply, it's not performance enhancing.
