If smoking weed makes me stupid and a burnout like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington (who also grew it on his land), then so be it.
As a side-note. THC not only helps cancer patients with side-effects of the drugs they take, the THC actually helps kill cancerous cells. Our glorious and esteemed scientific community realized this statistically in 1977 but the powers-that-be chose to push more expensive and less effective pharmaceuticals on us instead. Now why would they do that?
I am afraid that our government does not like us so why should I believe anything that they tell us?
Sigmund Freud also wrote many of his theories on psychology when he was high out of his mind mainlining cocaine, which was legal. Consider his idea that when you are potty trained affects your personality profoundly. If you're potty trained too early (anally retentive), you become obsessed with organization and money for the rest of your life. If you're potty trained too late (anally expulsive), you are disorganized and careless with money for the rest of your life.
You'd have to be high out of your gourd to come up with something crazy like that!
Unfortunately, Freud was highly influential and set back the treatment of mental illness for 50 years or more, contending, ironically, that drugs have no use in treating mental illness and that his psychotherapy could cure everything.
