Why Are Weeds And Other Hard Drugs Illegal While Cigarette Remains Legal? by xynerise(m): 12:43am On Dec 14, 2019
Thought provoking I would say..

Cigarette contains nicotine and methane which obviously kills. It has led death of millions globally on annual bases, and unfortunately, even thousands have died as a result of secondhand smoke exposure..that means, even a non-smoker is " liable to die young" when exposed to a smoker.

Despite these facts, cigarette is still legal. Isn't it hypocritical to make weed and other hard drugs illegal while cigarette remains a menace flexing freely in the society?

Weed has the capacity to make you feel good and satisfied even when you are obviously lagging behind.

Weed is not a product even cat and dog should have access to... The society will be fvcked up

Cos the government and religious organizations knows when you smoke weed you begin to see things the way they truly are and start asking questions challenging them. You see life in beautiful colors unlike the others that sees life in Black and White.

A madman sees sane people as the ones mad. That's what weed does too. It makes ordinary thoughts or ideas seem extraordinary.

Have you seen the ripple effect of both?

If yes, then your answer is in your question, "Hard" drugs

Weed and some dopamine reducing plant like the mushroom or some drugs like the LSD,DMT,and mdma are banned because this drugs and plant can knock you out of reality for life. Even those who take little almost experience the same episodes..I.e they see the universe in another dimension. Like the ayahuasca plant used by the shamans in Peru to have more enlightenment. This drugs and plants awaken your consciousness and spirit self....but cigarette will destroy yet the industry makes billions of dollars

Of course na. Weed is also medicinal. I'm not a smoker of any kind though. But I have asked this same question for years now. Why is cigarette that is a known killer legal and weed with some medicinal value illegal?
