WARNING: Extremely long post:

A warning to men!

Spoiler Tags because it's a LOT to read. Sorry for the wall of text people. I have never mastered the art of expressing myself in few words and tend to write a freaking novel when trying to. :(



If you just want the gist of the story without reading the whole thing then skip to this part:

Yeah, sorry, I can't read through all of that. Basically you had a disease, but a doctor didn't believe you, so you nearly died from addiction to a substance.

I didn't speed read, I just read particular key words (probably like 5 or 10) from paragraphs.

I really hate doctors, they really act like know it alls, but the thing is... they don't know it all and sometimes I think it's more professional to say, "I don't know". Seriously, professionals hate saying this phrase so much, their pride and ego really get in the way... but I don't know is the best phrase.

I'm not afraid to say it.

yeah, doctors aren't that competent at all.

my brother went in for a check up on his dislocation today and the person said to him that it wasn't real and it was all in his mind.
scans have already shown he has no cartilage, so what the heck?

There is no such thing as a "harmless" drug. If there was, even the prescription ones wouldn't do what they were supposed to.

of course, I'm against drug use. I even consider weed a harmful drug. (though many weed smokers see marijuana as their god, and once you insinuate that it's not the perfect drug, they'll burn ya at the stake)

I was just agreeing--There's nothing that works on the mind that doesn't work on the body as well.

Legalization is on the ballot here in MA (good freakin' LUCK, and that's coming from a college town with a "Hemp crafted goods" store on three streets), and there's been more discussion lately about the longterm sociological and psychological effects of legalized weed.
No, not the straw-man "Weed will make you play the piano fast!" ( ), but a five to ten year look at what happens to an 14-24-yo. demographic that embraces medicated passivity over individual achievement, at a pivotal age when they should be shaping their longterm plans--Mellowing out now means not doing anything later, and the town already has a bit too much of a panhandler problem, never mind the growing difficulty to afford what you need.
