A few "pleasant" effects of some drugs:


ALCOHOL - makes most of us "happy", initially, and creates the illusion of general friendship; others can be aggressive.

TOBACCO - calms nerves by relieving the craving it has created.

VALIUMS - remove (numb) the pain and revulsion at the world that we have created.

AMPHETAMINES - give us energy and intensity of thought.

CANNABIS - provokes short-term "peace of mind"; relaxation
and thought.

ECSTASY - provokes emotion that people think is joy and love.

L.S.D. - causes pleasure and a magnified appreciation of the awesome immensity of reality.

HEROIN - creates a "shield" or "bubble" that protects one from the "outside world vibes".


All the "pleasant" effects these drugs provoke are; in essence; things that CANNOT be found in the world or system we live in today. Some people, at least, desperately need to feel them. No-one goes around loving each other, we all walk around WARY of each other. When some-one sees the Divine in us (the Being) and smiles in recognition, we think: "What do they want from me?"

The world or system in which we've been brought up has taught us nothing in relation to these, our spiritual needs. Its only concern has been to teach us to want its products and to feed every want that we might have ("Self"-ish wants)* and ingrain the illegal hierarchy of the "System" deep within us. People who don't mind this "reality" are either VERY STRONG human+Beings, or, I'm sorry to say, humans deeply lacking IN ANY SPIRITUALITY WHATSOEVER.

* so we join the "rat race" to buy the system's products and consume; consume; consume and waste, thereby destroying ourselves; the planet and its natural resources.

Looking at it from a "God's Eye" perspective - all these drugs are "freely" available to any of us, in order to CANCEL the NEED for HIM (GOD). Drugs supply a very bad imitation, with very bad side-effects, of all that we feel when in DIRECT CONTACT with HIM (Love, Joy, Etc...).

Let's make no mistake - Satan / the Opposer / Evil (whatever you prefer) directs drugs at the more spiritual people to soothe the feeling that "something's not right with the world today" and prevent them from finally (after the heart-ache, sorrow and depression) DOING something about it (BEGINNING TO CHANGE THE WORLD / the system). That we cannot do this ("it's impossible") and that he doesn't exist, are 2 of the 3 biggest lies that the father of lies (the Devil) has ever told us. It is because we have believed his lies that we are in such a mess. The BIGGEST of these lies is that we are ONLY human.

The "comedown" that you feel when the effects of these chemical / physical, poor substitutes wear off, comes about because you have not used your WILL (your spirit or Being) to arrive at those feelings. You simply take the "quick and easy" human path which ALWAYS lets you down (when the drug's effect wears out). The more spiritually sensitive a person is, the greater the high, but also the greater the "comedown".

If we begin to will our way towards these BEAUTIFUL states of mind, it would then be a CONSTANT CLIMB (a PERSISTANT CONTINUAL RUSH) which will never reach its peak throughout ALL of ETERNITY. Multiply the good "feelings" drugs give by INFINITY and we begin to get an idea what HEAVEN is all about...

What will give us the impetus (the kick start) to do this is the TRUTH of why we are here on this planet and why it is so bad; why we don't just "feel good" all the time, why WE QUESTION in the first place (which is a very good question!) and knowing THE PLAN.

It is up to every individual to look for the answers wherever you want to, or right here, but please bear this in mind - make sure the ones you go to, provide you with the answers YOU are looking for and don't just provide you with THEIR OWN answers. If you believe the LIE that for some questions there is no answer, then you will never receive them: "Let him who seeks, not cease (stop) seeking until he finds, and when he finds, he will be TROUBLED (the Truth hurts...at first!), and when he has been troubled, he will MARVEL and REIGN over the ALL (he will know)" - Christ, in "The Gospel of Thomas" (The Doubter).

In this evil world, people give drugs to people in order to "remove" their drug problem?!! People, your drug-dependency or usage is the result of a CAUSE, a SPIRITUAL and NON-PHYSICAL cause. We aren't chemical-dependent, we are LOVE-DEPENDENT. We have been conned into believing that, by using something physical, our Spirits / Beings / Souls (the real us); which are non-physical Light / Essence; will feel better. With every comedown you feel WORSE and the next "high" is always LOWER. The only permanent solution is to learn how to use your will-power, not only so you "don't take drugs", including pharmaceutical ones, but primarily to water the vast spiritual desert inside every one of us and fulfill the very reason for our existence.

Behind the minute "reality" this world and its people see, is a GLORIOUS and IMMENSE EXPANSE of TRUTH simply lying there waiting to be discovered by us. Truth IS stranger than fiction. No fable even begins to compare with the Script of Life that has been written by The Author Himself. It is our ignorance / arrogance (the 2 sides of the SAME coin) that prevents us from learning to read it (we think we know all there is to know).

How long will we vote for and thereby give our permission to the love-less "System" and those who actually LIKE it, to LAUGH at US? How long will we allow them to drive the "hippies" (FREEMEN AND WOMEN) into their "communities" (into themselves) where they cannot do any damage to the evil in the world? It is not the "gays" who have to come out of the closet...it is those who love GOOD, JUSTICE and FREEDOM (if they ARE free AND fear-less)...

How long will we perpetuate this lie? How long will we let our WILL (our spirit) go to waste because of lack of spiritual-exercise? How long shall we ask GOD to forgive us for being so stupid? How long shall it take, Rebels, for us to fight back...?

It's the System that drives us to drugs and is destroying us, my friends. If we don't destroy it, while we still have the opportunity, and replace it with loving and caring, before it's too late, we certainly won't be able to once it has already succeeded in destroying us.

If YOU see the truth of it, then you are ready for "The Way Home" (the kick start) by JAH, The Revealer.

"THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE (AND IN HERE),
IT'S JUST BURIED UNDER TONS OF LIES."

So insightful. I think about it too, people want to be too dependent on themselves and on drugs to numb the emotional pain this evil system causes. Instead of relying on Jah for help, comfort, relief, hope and love, they blindly listen to foolish masses pushing for drug abuse. Yes, you get temporary happiness, pain-numbing effects, calmness, etc but at the same time it deteriorates your brain and thinking abilities which in turn make you short-sighted and miserable. The devil wants your minds and he'll sweet-talk you into trying one of his "candies" in order to get a hold of your mind and destroy it. Remember, the devil paints a nice picture about the bad things of this world to get you to fall into his traps. Idea! drugs = devil candies

Lol to ^

That is the case for only a very small amount of people though. It’s completely different for an addict.

I tend to disagree on the cannabis as it is dependent on strain and person what one feels and that that one liner doesn't really encompass all that cannabis is. And to be honest I really feel where the author is coming from because at one point I truly felt spiritually dead but I have work, I have bills, I have responsibilities, and priorities that have to be maintained. There are people I will probably never like that I have to interact with and on the point where cannabis promotes relaxation and peace of mind, that in turn allows me to amicably deal with life rather than succumbing to the hate that it's generally churning in myself.

I'm wound tight and genuinely try to be happy, to maintain joy, but life can hit so hard repeatedly that I wonder if my smoking weed were really a sin then God must be incredibly cruel because I'd probably become a murderer at some point. Though maybe I'm looking at it wrong, maybe there's some truly positive outlet sweeter than death to sway my heart and ease my mind but outside of praying I haven't found it.

I enjoyed the premise of the article, thank you.

That sentence comes across as "addicts far outnumber recreational users".
Not sure what the proportions are, if you include pot and alcohol I’d assume recreational far outnumber addicts but with other substances I think by nature of biology that just simply can’t be the case. Could be wrong. I’ve met very few recreational cocaine users and absolutely zero recreational heroin users in my own life.

Personally I don’t touch any of it. Rather be mentally on point.

If you want to enjoy doing something other than drugs, why don't you help people in a good way, volunteer, pick up a constructive hobby, enjoy nature walks, learn a new language, learn to play an instrument, get together with the family, etc. Lack of imagination leads people to seek toxic ways to relieve themselves of stress and suffering, instead of doing things that make them feel good, truly good and happy.

That's a rosy perspective but I do most of those things but I don't consider marijuana a drug like the racist Henry Anslinger. I play guitar, I build model cars and engines, I know two languages aside from English, volunteer when I have time, lift twice a day.

I think it's hard to understand until one actually experiences it.

sorry to burst his/her religious bubble, but if this author is claiming that psychedelics are evil, he/she has no idea what theyre talking about.

Agreed, psychedelics definitely don’t deserve to be stigmatized in the same manner as alcohol, opioids, benzos or stimulants.
Are you married?

Gosh how inappropriate of me! I thought I had found a wife.

Lol ignore me I'm being silly. +1 in agreement.

I gave up cannabis because I had a really good job offer about a year ago but then they wanted a hair follicle test and I thought NO PROBLEM b cause I RARELY smoke like once in a blue moon but ok and behold it came back and offer was rescinded. It definitely helps sleep and it helps my ms but jobs don’t care even in places where it’s legal or medicine they don’t care

That's when edibles become common place. California dispensaries are suffering because no one is buying bud but edible shops are behind popular. Considering the amplification of edibles compared to every other form of consumption it tends to be superior with longer and more potent effects.

My mother has MS and make her gummies and chocolates to deal with the pain because she lives with her husband's mother who wouldn't tolerate cannabis use regardless of the reason.
