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.

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

In some developed nations where weed is legalized, are we better than them?

Weed can cause accidents

Weed can make people irrational

Cigar is the easier pill to swallow for most countries

May be weed is from the ground and cigarette is from the factory.


Weed is raw and natural while cigarette is refined chemicals and very mild.

Weed is one of the best thing the body needs but unfortunately lots of people have been brainwashed! The ratio of dummies that we having today would have been so low if people take weed like they drink coke!

Coke is one of the most useless thing people consume-Google search 25 uses of coke and see for yourself!

Recently one hospital In Clarksville recommended weed smoking for a friend of mine!

Don’t over smoke is the only isssh!!!

Only local WEED!

Others like S.k, Pawpaw, Arizona ain’t medicinal or less medicinal!

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?


Is cigarette a hard substance?

Answer this and you will get up reason.

The truth is that there is absolutely no basis upon which you can say cigarette kills. They say you're liable doesn't mean it does absolutely. Weed is a stimulant, its a drug because it contains a well recognised pharmacological active substance... Tetrahydrocanniboid, it affects mental functioning....


My humble take though

Highly hypocritical....

Its the big corporations, anything they can't make profit from, they make it illegal.

BTW. .. FTC

Summary of it all... Weed is even highly medicinal, while cigarette is extremely harmful to both the one smoking and the non smoker inhaling the fumes.

The fact is tobacco is a white man produce which they made it so to be sold to the world making it legal. Weed is a coloured man produce so the white govt controlled the inflow and outflow as well putting a ban on it making it illegal. They also know that weed is a plant and it is medicinal but they play ignorance. Tobacco kills ,it kills alot compared to weed.. if you can see in the past few years, they are beginning to accept weed for Individuals to smoke but they are trying to ensure that the white elite have control over the market using a system that works for them.

Sometimes we need to make researches on these things.
Cannabis (weed) is a plant which to me is perfect when consumed the right way (brewed as tea, use as a spice for cooking and not smoking it) and in approriate amount.
It becomes detrimental to the health when it abused. Cigaratte on the other hand is deadly and their is no defending it.

Weed has lots of health benefits...
Which is never talked about.., Guess the fear of it been abused when it's legal that's why it's condemed.

Cigarettes either kills you or weaken your immune system.
But the Companies make huge cash in billions.
