"To all of you who think pot is safe"
    #2974329 - 08/07/04 02:45 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

This was snipped from a geek forum.

Quote:

As some of you may know (or may not) my family has been through some rough times. We lost both my Mother and my Grandma on Christmas '01 in 2 totally seperate and surprising incidents. I am 28 (now) and at the time was dating a very supportive and awesome girl. (who I then married of course) My brother who is 23 (now) is a music major and has always messed around with pot and stuff, but it was never a big deal. That is until christmas 01.

He started smoking that sh!t like crazy, messing up his mind & soul. He tried more and more of different sh!t until one day he was so fvcked up he went crazy and had mass delusions that people were after him and our family. On the way to the hospital he through his cell phone, and any other electronics that he had out the window because he believed that is how the "terrorists" were watching him.

My brother is a genious. He is honestly the smartest musician I have ever known. He can pick up any instrument and have it down to a point in a few hours. In fact he has taken over peoples places in an orchastra with an instument that he had played for the first time that day. He has been in countless newspapers, orchestras, offered many full-ride scholorships etc..

So fast-forward one year after he checked himself in. He came out clean, moved in with my dad for a year to remove himself from the old crowd. He would come and visit and you could tell he was so clean cut again, finally he was back to his old self.

He has always been a free spirit, going to obsure places to learn cultural influences of music from some awesome places. He has gone to africa twice to learn african beats, and currently he is in Trinidad Tobago to learn caribbian beats.

Well FVCKING POT SUCKED HIM BACK IN

Read these two emails I recieved from him. ON THE SAME DAY.

    quote:

    Thanks,
    This past weekend I have been living in the NOrthern Mountain Range of
    Trinidad in the Jungle, working and learning from the Arawak and Oleah Tribes, rough
    rough. But this experience will forever change how I view the world and land upon
    which I live. Gunda Harewood (my tour guide) is building a house in La Feelit (what a
    name). Since I work for free, she uses me. The lanscape surfices all things,
    heart, mind, and even soul if you don't watch yourself. Please send a prayer for me, I
    am safe, but doing cultural "research" observation. If you don't believe in
    yourself and God, you could go lost easily up there in Space as they call at home.
    Real bushmen, with a little city flavor, story tellers, african mystics, herbalist, god
    seekers, peacefull until met with natural resistance, bounty hunters! The bicycle
    will be back by Wednesday, city life you would get locked up for it, the jungle
    they would just lash you! I read the Koran for the first time this weekend, strong and
    powerfull book, though I know in my heart I pray to my mother, Not a man.
    Mother Earth they call it, our heavinly father.

    Thanks and Health,
    your son
    [my brother]

    Wow oh wow what a relaxed day next to the internet cafe. I have been
    trying to fix and update Gunda's computer for her all day after getting
    back my bike for the last time, this morning at the woodbrook police
    station, the problam is not that I am too trusting, just that I don't
    sometimes see. Nice uh, living well in time is nice. Keep one rope in
    one hand and the next in the other, like sticks. Look up and try to fix
    one on one and the other on the other, the stars. Watch and Listen to
    what you can not physically do, I have seen skwinted pictures, I love
    life.




After these emails, my dad called him, and asked him if he is back on drugs. Well if you took the time to read his emails, you can take a wild guess, yes he is. He complained to my dad that his heart is always racing, and I am concerned about my brothers health.

I couldn't handle losing my brother, he is the last family I have left.

So everytime you come in here talking about pot and I get pissed off, here is why. I can't stand watching idle why he (and you) kill yourselves.

She should be a fiction writer, she's good at making up interesting stories

I actually read that entire thing. Sounds like bullshit, but still interesting

Yeah I read the whole thing too. The only thing that makes the story sound OK is when he says "He tried more and more of different sh!t". That's vague. Who knows what his brother was into.

ah yes, the classic I'm not going to take responsibility for my own actions


actually you know what?? I don't even believe this ever happened.


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

Killing myself with bud.....that would take a while.

Actually noone has ever overdosed on pot, so who knows, but it's apparently more then anyone has ever smoked or there would have been someone dead from it by now.

Yeah but I guess through rats or something like that they figured it out for people. Then again, thats rats, and personally I dont think we can learn shit from testing things on other animals considering our minds have such a strong influence on us. I dunno, i just remember reading it somewhere, might have been erowid.

I don't see ANYTHING wrong in those e-mails. It sounds like he's just enjoying what he's doing!

The delusions and such can't be connected to marijuana as this person even said he was trying other stuff (whatever that might be, and whether its actual delusions or what, who knows). It sounds like either schizophrena or parinoa from crack abuse.


Obivouisly marijuana is the simple scapegoat here. Its a matter of hearing so much bad stuff about it that s/he assumes it's the problem. Bah! Boo parinoid media.

The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

Once you learn a certian amount of different types of instruments it's not so hard to be able to fake (nearly) any instrument with a bit of practice. Playing it as well as an orchestra player might be a bit of a strech though.

I'm dissapointed no one brought up schitzophrenia and how mind altering substances can bring it out early.

Schitzophrenia is also known for hitting between 18 and about 27ish.

You potheads make a sad case in your defense sometimes :wink:

No doubt in my mind I hve Schitzophrenia, and no doubt pot made that come out *quicker*, but when it comes down to it you have complete control over your mind, and it woulda hit me anyway eventually.  Besides, the way schitzophrenia works theres also no doubt in my mind that everybody has it to a certain extent, its just more severe due to paranoia in some cases.

You don't smoke mndfreeze, or are you doing the hippy hater thing?  :hippie:
