Mind Medicine: Boondocks Follow-up


     After seeing last night’s episode of the Boondocks, I feel a bit inspired to address the well known mind medicine (marijuana). Marijuana, which is better known as weed, has been known to chill out the most hot headed people and bring an appetite to anyone in its smokey path. Just like granddad, many adults smoke weed to bring down their stress, while many teens in urban neighborhoods may smoke weed for the hell of it. Weed is known to be safe and non addictive.
      I mean really, I have yet to hear about someone overdosing from smoking too much weed. Although, I do believe that most people get mentally addicted and feel they need to smoke to be relaxed or even be that down to earth person that weed turns them into. The crazy thing about all of this is that even though it’s illegal, many of us risk our freedom, dignity and self-preservation to take a puff. Some of us go so far as to spend our last on a bag and a swisher.
     Either way it goes we all have our habits and hobbies and I’m not for or against smoking weed but I just choose not to and I feel as though depending on something else to feel good about oneself is a sign of insecurity and low self-esteem. So, step away from the herb and find something better to do *that’s as if you aren’t already on house arrest and probation*.
