Blue, I totally agree with your logic on the synthetic version they are peddling to our young people (baby boomers know better lol). They are clearly starting to put laws/restrictions on these people and this crap bath salts/spice. I think they all should be shut down, barred from owning any business and prosecuted. I really don't think they are trying to get everyone numb to their surroundings by considering changes on hemp. Just looking for revenue, decriminalization to free up our law enforcement, courts, and jails.OK! Now my take on something going in our government and nation.
Concerning the legalization of weed. Maybe we should ask ourselves why now at this time in history. Well folks it may be all about complacency.
What better way to shut your eyes and cloud your thoughts on issues affecting your lives. Whether it be the activities of governments, mother nature, famines, wars, anything!
Lets give them what they have been begging for for years, they will love us for it!
Now to an even more dangerous issue. This synthetic weed thing. The forces that should be battling this scourge on our society are probably the very ones the are seeing to it the stuff remains available. Even though illegal, if one knows where to look it can be found. And the black market is growing at an incredible rate.
Now this; establishments that sold/sell this stuff seem to always be owned by middle easterneers. Many of them also offer what appears to be Muslim/Islamic products. Are our weaknesses, and disires to puff away our edgyness funding terrorist organizations...It's a possibility!
What better way to infiltrate your enemies home than to provide them with another drug that you seem to have some kind of monopoly on. "We're your friends we get you high!" Some of us have kicked ourselves in the a$$ so many MANY times over these mixed feelings. An addictive personality can DOOM a person clear to hell. Trust me I know.
Now as I am becoming me again, and it took a lot of help and prayer I feel it's my job to share and help others see the light. So many people will tell you it was the hardest thing to get away from they ever experienced.
Now please don't judge me harshly, but if you lean that direction refer to Abelievers earlier post of Beautiful Quotes.
That's all for now. Maybe some of you will believe some of these assertions totally off the wall and out of line, and I can understand that. However are these thoughts so outlandish when we consider that which we DO know?
On hemp, I think that with the tobacco industry going down and the desires for products made by hemp are profitable for the country and could be especially for Kentucky. This would be good for the economy with the potential for production, jobs, tax income etc..
Medical or recreational, I think that people have and will smoke it if they choose too for their entire life if they so choose.
There would be regulation on amount grown or possessed by individuals (like we are already seeing), it would clear the jails/prisons for more hardened criminals. With regulation and taxes it would help the economy and take business away from Mexico, Columbia etc... I have never been hooked on drugs, treated for addiction, or even been a drinker THANK GOD,but I know plenty that have. Most families do. I don't believe smoking a joint is a gateway drug to harder drugs and never did. When I was trying it, all it did was make me hungry, lazy and laugh like a silly girl. haha
So that is where I stand on those issues. I admire anyone who has kicked their addictions whatever they may be. It is a lot of hard work, prayers, family support, and most of all they have to WANT to kick it before they can be helped. I have seen many success stories up close and personal in family and friends.
On another note...I am glad you enjoyed one of my favorite quotes.
