I smoked a lot of pot in the 1970's and early 80's, the problem is that when I first started smoking pot, it was low grade columbian gold in a five finger baggy, at $20 an ounce, by the time I left the east coast for California in 1979 the pot was selling at $35 for an ounce or $20 a half ounce.
Now when I lived back east we had access to things like thai sticks, hashish, opiumated hashish, hash oil or honey oil, but there is a huge difference in the amount of “Tetrahydrocannabinol” (THC) in each type of material, so how do we distinguish whether someone is under the influence and at what level?
Now going from the east coast to west coast the “Ganja” buds grown in California known as green bud, red hair, humbolt, or the likes has THC levels probable 25 times more than the columbian gold I was used to in the east coast.
I am old enough now to be extremely honest and it’s been about 20 years since the last time I toked, but I know dam well that pot had a huge influence on my driving ability and my perception, and although some of you may enjoy a blast back to the past, the truth of the matter is pot makes you lazy, un-motivated, lack of drive or desire, it clouds memory and consumes your life.
You will never see the level of success you could have had if you think living in a world of Marijuana users is cool, it’s not and I wish I had realized some of the things I know now when I was young, but that’s not the route to take nor is it going to be fruitful in the long run. I have a lot of regrets from my youth!
I have a family member who is in law enforcement and the unbelievable loss of life, the stupid decisions that land people in prison and the family left grieving and suffering is huge, don’t believe for one minute there are no victims, that’s stupid!
Go do something constructive with your life and buy and sell real estate, make your self a success, and don’t worry about what other people are doing, just worry about you!!
The law is what seperates us from primitive man and without laws we would be no better than our ancient predisessors.
What do you think keeps 98% of drug addicts and drunks from killing you for your money, it’s the consequence of our laws!!!
