    Does marijuana help you?

    More from PoliceState



    Over the last few days, there have been lots of iReports extolling the virtues of marijuana consumption. Each one of these has been attacked by the same group of individuals. They insult those who choose to consume the drug for whatever reason. Alas, all attempts to reason with these people bring one thing to mind: THE BRICK


    THE BRICK cannot be reasoned with. It is mindless in its brick-ness. Solid and unyielding to any sort of non-forceful approaches. Neither reason nor common sense impacts it. After all, it is a brick.


    THE BRICKS OF IREPORTS are the same. They cannot be reasoned with nor will any manner of intellectual discourse result in deterring them from their mindless game of attacking the pot user. They call these people addicts and accuse them of being stupid, lazy, unmotivated and generally unproductive. All while never having tried the drug. And, while dismissing those who try to educate them on the effects and uses of the drug. Experience is the best teacher, they claim; yet, somehow that doesn't apply to those who know the ends and outs of marijuana. Rather than taking the time to learn something, they instead show their egregious intolerance and gross stupidity about something they can't be bothered to investigate in any meaningful way.


    I will admit the brick is very useful. However, its primary use is with mortar, and other bricks, for constructing walls. The kind the witless can dwell behind in ignorance.


    I am a resident of Colorado. I may very well buy some retail pot simply to have done so legally. It would be a first. I would prefer to grow my own.
