Subj: Marijuana actually is bad for you, mmkay
Many times now I have received comments praising the effects of marijuana. They say:
“Victor, the weed is so great. You should get stoned and drop out, man.”
I say: Wow, the weed is so great huh? Listen here Wiz Khalifa, get a big dimebag of it, make sure it's primo stuff, get your bongs and your pipes, get your lighters and incense, get your Willie Nelson records, and then shove it all up your ass.
Weed is garbage and here is why you should never smoke it…
WEED KILLS YOUR DRIVE TO SUCCEED.
Everybody on earth already knows the reality of marijuana, we're simply pretending the negatives don't exist.
Marijuana has a million negative effects and not a single true benefit. Every positive word you have ever heard about marijuana has been a lie promoted by drug addicts.
If you say otherwise you need a swift kick in the ass to get you back on track. I'm here to give you that kick in the ass and show you the reality of the devil's weed.
I will show you the 8 worst effects of marijuana in a moment, but even if you forget the rest of the article, always remember this:
MARIJUANA ROBS YOU OF AMBITION.
You cannot be in business without ambition and you will absolutely never find success if you make a habit of smoking cannabis.
Many men will take offense to this simple observational fact. Those many men are called pothead losers and they need a swift kick of reality to their backside.
How to easily tell if you have a problem with marijuana…
(If you think you or someone you love is a marijuana addict, use this test.)
Quick question: You see a man walking towards you wearing a shirt with a marijuana leaf on it. What is your first reaction that the man in the marijuana leaf t-shirt? Is he:
a) a burnout loser
b) a rich CEO?
If you said A, you are correct. He is obviously a burnout loser. Congratulations to you, you obviously live in the real world.
If you said B, you are incorrect. He is obviously not a rich CEO and you no longer live in the real world. You have smoked yourself into a realm where truth has no business. You have an obvious problem with marijuana and you are pathologically unable to admit it.
Marijuana addicts are notorious liars, even to themselves, and they will even pretend that the drug they are addicted to is actually a medicine.
Is marijuana actually medicine?
No, marijuana is not medicine. You'll hear all this talk about marijuana being a harmless medicine. Well I've got news for you, marijuana is a drug, it is not a medicine.
Marijuana is a drug that tricks you into thinking it is medicine when in reality it is what is causing the so-called health problems that it pretends to heal.
You toke on the reefer, it causes your problems. The next day you have problems and you want them to go away so you toke on the reefer. But after you take your “medicine” your problems seem to come back like clockwork.
Marijuana causes the problems it pretends to heal. This is how ALL drug addictions work; nicotine, heroin, alcohol and other drugs follow this same formula. Take the drug, get the problems, the drug temporarily solves the problems that it created (until it stops solving the problems it created, leading you to take more and more).
“But Victor, if everybody smoked a joint the world would be a better place, man”
No, the world would not be a better place if everybody smoked a joint. If everybody smoked marijuana we would live in a world of retarded criminals. Just like in Denver…
Marijuana is legal in the formerly great state of Colorado. Denver is the biggest city in Colorado. In 2013, 48.4% of those arrested in Denver had marijuana in their system.
Do you know why criminals often (usually) have marijuana in their system? It is because marijuana is a drug that makes you do things you would not normally do.
“But I thought marijuana calms you down, man?”
That is a lie. Marijuana does not calm you down, it actually increases your heart rate. Eventually, it temporarily relieves the symptoms that it gives you.
A widely held belief among marijuana users is that marijuana use helps to relieve anxiety and improve depression. Based on the available research, it seems that the euphoric, pleasant and anxiety-relieving effects produced by marijuana are only temporary and can actually contribute to worsening symptoms of depressive and anxiety disorders with higher concentrations of THC and the chronic use of marijuana.” (source)
Did you read that? It said the pleasant effects of marijuana are temporary and that marijuana contributes to those symptoms it promises to heal.
What does that mean in English? Marijuana gives you the anxiety and depression you use marijuana to treat.
Marijuana use and abuse is an endless cycle.
MARIJUANA WORKS LIKE STOCKHOLM SYNDROME
Marijuana is a tricky drug that gives you the symptoms of depression because it's the only cure. It's like Stockholm Syndrome – the victim becomes convinced that his captor is the only one who will protect him and keep him alive.
Weed wants to be used so it will be propagated. For it to be used, the user needs to want to use it, and by giving the user symptoms of depression, the user will want to use it to get rid of those symptoms.
Marijuana is not a medicine, it is not healing you, in reality it is dumbing you down, slowing you down, mentally killing you and slowly physically killing you.
“But Victor, alcohol is WORSE than weed!”
Did you already forget what we are talking about, Cheech? We aren't talking about alcohol, we are talking about weed.
Nobody is praising the benefits of alcohol. You are changing the subject because you are uncomfortable with the truth, which is a sign of marijuana addiction.
Weed is garbage. Just because alcohol is also garbage is no excuse for you to be a loser hitting the cannabis pipe.
Just say no to reefer and say yes to a calm, clear, sharp mind.
It is a bold faced lie that marijuana is harmless and it is an even bigger lie that it is good for you. Marijuana is trash and if you smoke it you will become trash.
“Why not just try marijuana, man?”
If you have never smoked marijuana, don't even try it. Your friends and family will pressure you, say no.
Nobody even likes marijuana the first time they try it, because it is poison to your system. It takes 5-10 times for you to start “liking” it.
If marijuana is so good, how come nobody likes it the first several times they try it? That is because the weed has not had time to start developing it's very real addiction power.
Magically, at about the 5th-10th time you smoke weed, you “enjoy” it. In reality, the addiction is growing and you are feeding the addiction which is why you think it suddenly “feels good.” All it is doing is relieving the mild addiction you did not realize you were creating.
“But Victor, you can't get addicted to weed lol”
What are you dumb? Yes, of course you can be addicted to weed. Look at every single pothead for absolute proof that you can be addicted to cannabis.
This is a lie they have been telling you for a long time, that you cannot get addicted to weed. That is absolute nonsense, weed is one of the most additive substances on earth.
The experts say, “It is often harder to get people who are dependent on cannabis through withdrawal than for heroin – we just don’t know how to do it.”
Why is weed so hard to quit? (It's actually easy to quit, keep reading). Because weed is a tricky little drug that does a lot of seemingly invisible damage.
“So what are the actual benefits of marijuana?”
There are NO benefits of marijuana. Weed literally does not do any good for you. Every so-called benefit is a negative effect in disguise.
Weed creates the problems it then temporarily solves for you. People say “I take weed for my anxiety” ignoring the fact that weed causes the anxiety in the first place.
So they keep on smokin' and tokin' like Snoop Dogg without a care in the world. In the meantime, everything else in life takes a back-seat to your drug addiction.
- Brain scans showed the cannabis users had significantly blunted dopamine responses compared with the controls who had never taken the drug.
- Research links marijuana use to mental health problems: anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, schizophrenia and short-term psychosis.
- The most commonly reported side effects of smoking marijuana are intense anxiety and panic attacks.
- Studies report that about 20% to 30% of recreational users experience such problems after smoking marijuana. The people most vulnerable are those who have never used marijuana before.
- Too often cannabis is wrongly seen as a safe drug, but there is a clear link with psychosis and schizophrenia, especially for teenagers.
- A 2013 study conducted by researchers from the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology at Dalhousie University investigated the link between cannabis and mental health problems, including depression, suicidal ideation and suicidal attempts, in 976 school students attending four high schools in Canada. The students were surveyed in grade 10 and 12. The researchers found that heavy cannabis use alone predicted depression, but not suicidal ideation or attempts, among high school students.”
- High doses of THC are notoriously linked to the development of brief psychotic reactions, even in people who do not have schizophrenia, as well as symptoms of psychosis including depersonalization, fears of dying, irrational panic and paranoid ideas, although these symptoms often quickly abate soon after the effects of marijuana are gone.

Marijuana only really does one thing to you…
MARIJUANA MAKES YOU A LOSER.
Use your eyes to see the truth: every pothead you know is an easily irritable loser.
Loser = a person with low self-esteem who does nothing proactive to fix his loser'dom. Rather, a loser only gets irritable when people point out his obvious flaws. Marijuana renders these people incapable of remaining calm.
Marijuana users are the most sensitive losers on earth. They are easily offended when presented with the reality of marijuana and they are not equipped to deal with stress in any way other than toking more reefer. That is because marijuana kills your self-esteem.
“The only thoughts I have when I smoke cannabis is that I'm an idiot and everyone else thinks the same.” –Every pothead
If you are a drunk or a stoner it is because you are a loser. If you stop smoking you will stop being a loser because the only thing making you a loser is the weed.
Marijuana is like a band-aid made of cactus. Rip off the band aid and fix the real problem like a man. You can fix the problem with this single piece of knowledge… WEED IS GARBAGE.
The people who toke on reefer know it's garbage but they're too addicted to stop. Thankfully, when you understand the truth that marijuana creates the problems it fixes, marijuana addiction is easy to break.
(Winners got time for weed like we got time for AIDS – none.)
STOP SMOKING WEED
START LIVING LIFE
To stop smoking marijuana is easy. All you have to do is realize that smoking pot does not give you any benefits and it causes all of the problems it pretends to fix.
Get rid of the weed and those problems will go away like magic. Poof. Leaving you with a clear, calm mind.
If you want to succeed in this life, you must have a calm, clear mind at all times.
Opportunity often comes but once in a lifetime, you have to clear-minded and present in the moment to take your opportunity.
Think of all the opportunities you let pass you by because you were too high to act on them.
To catch opportunity when she passes you by, you must: Stay lean, stay clean, stay mean and don't ever smoke that green nonsense.
Until next time.
