Marijuana Legalization

Alcohol-vs-Marijuana-Does-Use-Contribute-To...I won’t repeat the many articles discussing how alcohol is worse than pot for the body or the temperament–yet alcohol is too big to control. Nor will I discuss the roots of pot illegalization as prejudice against minorities and bigotry against liberals. Nor the long suppot of legalization by nonusers. Finally, its acceptance by economic conservatives being  financial, not morality, and further an acceptance that the underemployed people need an attitude change to put up with declineg wealth and opportunity so they don’t revolt and religion ain’t it .Instead let’s watch a video, The Dangers of Marijuana.

Nice to see Christina Rad again and yep, it’s a sleep aid like Xanex or Ambien with more pleasant side effects. Sleep deprivation being such a huge health issue as well as anxiety and chronic low-leveld depression. Of course many people who have quit, don’t do it, quit because they did too much or because it does make some too stupid to bear for awhile. Not good reasons to make it as evil and punishable as manslaughter.

Perhaps the economists are finally getting that they have succeeded in eliminating jobs requiring expertise and a service economy needs a drug to keep bored people from going bat shit crazy.

Now what was that other political thing we don’t want to deal with while we are distracted about pot? Oh yeah, human-made climate change, overpopulation, income inequality.

Jim Newman, bright and well

About Jim Newman

Jim Newman is a philosopher. When I was young I wondered what was the ultimate truth. How should I behave? What makes it all work? I was intensely curious to know what it all means. It was enlightening to realize there is no ultimate truth, but nevertheless sufficient and necessary turth, and that meaning was a meta analysis of living one’s life. In this sense my work has been living large. Living and experiencing life has made me learn many things. Building boats, motors, houses, electronics. Raising animals. Teaching. Writing. Photography. Drawing. Knitting. Sewing. Cooking. Music. Painting. Hiking. Aboriginal living skills. All material aspects of reality that seem irrelevant until you realize they allow you to experience more. My epiphany came when I read Christopher Hitchen’s “Letters to a Young Contrarian” and I felt vindicated in my many meals of sacred cow.

    A tip o’ the bong to you! There’s a crowd I’d like to pass a bowl with. Baked Dusty has to be a lot of fun. Does Christina’s accent get thicker when she’s high?

    A tip to you too! Dusty would be a blast with or without Justin Bieber. Rad is definitely a bit more rad. I can’t imagine a more fun mix to watch Monty Python and eat endless pizzas and beer with, or whatever ! I’d have to hang back and just watch them churn the world. I find these kinds of folks bring out the best in me to the demise of sense or sensibility. Speaking of coming out …
