People have been smoking marijuana since the dark ages. No really, that’s a fact! But, it wasn’t called marijuana back then. This wonderous plant took on many names throughout the years: sacred leaf, cannabis(it’s actual name), spirit guides, marijuana etc. Never matter the name of it though, because it will all do the same thing… make you happier. Which is why I cannot understand why it’s not legal.
Marijuana, whether it is medical or recreational, it is going to relax you. The THC in marijuana causes muscle relaxation and the feeling of being high. If you roll it (a blunt) or smoke out of a pipe (bong, pipe), you’re to feel the euphoria of marijuana. Whichever way you do it, it’s your preference.
We all have seen the movies where people in the olden days were smoking out of long pipes. This is true! It was actually marijuana, of course, different from what they grow today. In this era a marijuana smoke, it is more potent. Nevertheless, marijuana or getting high was used as a meditation practice. The higher you are, the more inclined you are to talk to your higher being or communicate with your ancestors. Marijuana, just like it relaxes your mind, it relaxes parts of your mind.
#3 Mind Your Business
Once you get a hit of some weed/marijuana, you are in a world of your own. Nothing really bothers you, you’re minding your own business and thinking about yourself. I am not saying that if you have responsibilities that it will make you just think about yourself, however, it will help you focus more on your life. When you’re smoking, whether it be by yourself or with a friend, that’s all there is.
#4 Makes you Very Friendly
I’m not sure if you know it or not, but smoking marijuana is universal. Look around, everyone does smokes. It’s already legal in a few states in the U.S. Not to mention how legal is overseas! No one cares what you do just as long as you’re not bothering anyone. For example, people tend to get bewildered when there’s liquor in their system. Not marijuana. Smoking makes you want to share and have conversations with those that you vibe with. Some of the deepest most charismatic conversations come when a person is high.
#5 Makes you Think Deeper
Like I stated before, smoking can come with great conversations. Also, with smoking marijuana, it can make you think deeper about life itself, or dissect certain situations that you couldn’t understand when you were sober. It all goes along with mediation.
#6 Spiritual Healing
Smoking marijuana can make you become in tune with your inner self. If you use marijuana for mediation, you’ll have no choice but to get to know yourself better because that’s the result of meditation. Your spiritual self will grow and will be a healing magnet to anyone that comes in contact with you. You’ll be like a walking talking guru of love, light, and life.
#7 Cure Diseases
Since the talk about marijuana has been circling the internet about becoming legalized within the last few years, the scientist has come with the proof that marijuana can save people’s lives. I have seen a video where a girl was having a seizure and her father gave her marijuana oil or something and she instantly calmed down. Her body began to relax and she began acting like her normal self. We all know that marijuana helps with the disease in the eyes.
#8 Incorporate More Jobs
I feel this way because once it becomes legalized, there will be more dispensaries opening up for people to work for. If they want to go into business for themselves, then they have the option of turning it into an empire themselves. A lot more people will be self-employed and the unemployment rates will surely be increased. It is a win-win for everyone. The more weed that is being sold, the more chill the nation will be.
#9 No Wars
Number 8 brought me to this conclusion that if everyone smoked weed, there will be no reason to fight. You see, in marijuana, there’s this “forget about it” aspect that comes with it when a person smokes it making them forget all their troubles and anger. There will be no wars because, once again, people will be minding their business more. Rather than fighting, spark up a blunt and keep things civilized.
#10 The World Will Be A Better Place
All the points above lead to this point. The world will be at peace if marijuana becomes legalized. Everyone will be more relaxed and less timid. There will be more medical breakthroughs if more doctors incorporated marijuana into their practices. The world will be friendlier and mediation wouldn’t be so taboo. Imagine a world where society worked on their inner beings and cared more about the spiritual source instead of the outer. We can all dream right.
The time is coming where marijuana will be just as plain as buying socks. The nation will come to its senses sooner or later, hopefully. What are your thoughts about legalizing marijuana? Do you think it’ll be good or bad?

I've been a writer all my life! A good one I must add. Not to be cocky, but I cannot think of anything else to do with my life besides writing. I love to write about what I know along with what I find most interesting about life. I run a BLOG about my journey of leaving home and driving across country to Los Angeles (you're gonna want to read it, it's pretty funny). My dreams are to become an author and to freelance write where ever I can. I can envision myself, interviewing those I admire the most in their careers. That can mean a wide range of people from celebrities to struggle artist on the street. It doesn't matter. As long as you inspire me, to aspire you. Then, I'm good.
