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.
what you wrote is completely opposite of what weed does!!!! the difference is mental state, euphoria

Yet it's legalized in civilized & developed countries, how smart are you than them?
legalized as a Way to weaken the black race... use America as an example, boys smoke weed, how do they end, prison, doing drugs, fraud, having kids outside wedlock, it kills their ability to be productive to the society, only those that succeed through music are betterof.... blacks have the highest rate of weed smokers... Why do u think weed, abortion, homosexuality were legalized when Obama (a black president) was on seat.. Do some research.. Obama was used as a figure head to finally cripple the blacks with all the stuffs he legalized

Both do cause harm...

When you smoke cigarettes, except for 2nd-hand or thirdhand smoke, the smoker harms himself

Smoking igbo harms the society should in case the smoker gets too high or takes Osogbo weed.

What has tatoo and tribal marks got to do with person intelligence?

What has tatoo and tribal marks got to do with person willingness to work?

Mediocrity is what is killing that country.

Person go barb a certain kind of hair style, he won’t be employed.

If you attend a job interview without white shirt and tie , you are not competent.

If you wear perfume for an interview, they will say you are pompous.


They do not want to know how competent one is for a particular position.


Back then, I was asked to removed my black ceramic movado bold wristwatch before proceeding to my interviewer.


Nonsense country.
They don't allow tattoo in d military in other countries like USA too. Get ur fact right

If the 1% of the world can't control & regulate the sales & distribution of any product ,then that product will be declared illegal and dangerous. grin

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?


Same way

..why is White sugar legal and cocaine illegal

White Sugar is actually a drug, it's just a molecule away from crack cocaine
it's poisonous to the body and the bedrock foundation of most grave/minor sicknesses and diseases

The question you should be asking is
Who made it illegal__What gave them the right to declare it contraband?
Native American societies were the first to use it, it didn't become illegal until the white man said so.

Your ancestors were shipped to the Americas to plantations to grow among other things tobacco.
Since tobacco made the white-man rich, of course it is legal

Can you smoke cigarettes to the extent that you go and slap your mother?

You have a warped reasoning. If you do not know anything about something, don't talk about it.

as long as you are mentally sound,lack of money,losing your phone,retrieving you line wouldn't affect you as long as your life isn't centered on "things"(what you can get),but when you are deprived of a substance that stimulate your brain,my brother even the devil will run away from you.Your brain controls your entire life/being
Take away my hands,eyes or leg,but give me a sound mind I will still rule this world,but give me a perfect body without a sound mind,I'm as useless as fly.
And what makes you think people who take weed are not of sound mind? You feel hyper-intelligent when you take weed and that's no joke! In fact you become saner, you won't be on Nairaland arguing with people because you focus on the most important things and don't easily get distracted. I don't know what sounds like being in control of your mind than that. I don't smoke, I stash a little on my food once in a while and I know and understand the impact. Just don't take more than 2 pinches or you'll sleep all day the next day grin

because cigarette is the prefered brand of the world conquerors (Britain and America) but weed is the prefered brand of rastafarians .lol.
my point is simple . the rulers of the world then looked down on weed and gave it a bad name. hence, other societies/countries followed .
that is the power of influence .

Greater intelligence lies within a man and not in a substance. If One is sound, what does he need weed for?In no time he will become dependent in it,which is not a virtue.

People who take cigarette are likely to kill themselves by inhaling the poisonous smoke. But hard drugs like Indian hemp, ice, cocaine etc. Will make you hypersensitive. And it will affect you mentally. And there's a high tendency of harming others.

Do not smoke weed but make it in tea form, then, the active part is activated through milk,butter or olive oil.
Functions are too much to mention.
But in summary, it is absolutely good.
Only the backward climes demonize it.

Thank you! Please where can i get it from? Cos i will like to brew it as tea. I like eating things that are beneficial to health.
