This is a link to an interesting docuemntry about marijuana. Probably most of you already seen it. But some conclusions are very interesting, plus they pitch interesting details. Of course this seems a little biased but all in all it's a well made documentry.

Yeah, this piece was very one-sided. But it did bring up some good, informative points and questions. Where it failed to me is where I felt like they were trying to drive home that marijuana itself is zero percent negative. I learned a lot more than I knew about hemp usage, though.

What are the negative outcomes of smoking pot? Mild to moderate smoking versus abuse...

Exactly. What got me was how easy it is for a govenment to legalize/deligalize substances, products etc without the public having a say. Furthermore how much we buy into information without cross-checking them. But what's even worse is that we are becoming too lazy to do that, we somehow assume that whatever source we have is the right one, because it is the one most commonly repeated and we just go with the flow.

I don't see where either domel or myself even disagreed with anything from the flick. I agree with just about every idea given in it, actually. The only thing I wasn't feeling is how it came off as a sales pitch more than a fully informative piece. If you're going to bring it, bring the bad with the good cuz let's be honest: The people that would watch this type of thing in its entirety (and actually be moved by it) are not people who are opposed to the idea of having marijuana on the market, so there's really nothing for them to buy into.

I loved the video, just didn't love its entire approach. I can't front on that.

Well... if you're smoking it, it's smoking. Along with all of its "healing" elements, smoke in your body just isn't healthy. Let's be real about that. Of course, there are alternative ways to get it in your system. And I'm not going to lie, I'd still be smoking it myself if I didn't have a job that busts random drug tests out.

Again, I say, nobody's opposing you here so far.

Been that way since the beginning of societies with those in power, from what I understand. Propaganda is a form of mental warfare waged on the masses to reach a goal without opposition. I always wondered what would really happen if we citizens actually treated this system like the Democracy it was written to be. How long would we stay a Democracy? Or would we be bamboozled into thinking the choices that are made are ours, when they're not?
