Marijuana does not simply pass through the body as urine in the same way as alcohol but it remains in the brain where it causes people to lose their inner drive(“become mellow”) and destroys their work ethic and cognitive abilities if taken over time.

Skunk, the version which is 7 times more powerful than the “good S–T of the 1960’s and 1970’s, can cause people to become depressed, super aggressive and dangerously morose, so the idea that it is no more dangerous than not flossing one’s teeth is dangerous nonsense.

Dr. Alf has serious misgivings about this study and rightly so. I have seen the effects of excessive or even mild pot smoking and skunk consumption on people that I have known for many years, one of whom had to spend 1 year in a drug rehabilitation unit in Colindale, London, and emerged as a totally different person. We are not born with recreational drugs inside of us and should not put anything into our bodies other than food, water or medically prescribed substances when we are ill.

If we seek a “high” we should develop an enabling personal philosophy and get high on the air we breathe and on ourselves. We do not need a crutch to get through the vicissitudes of life and giving ourselves temporary quick fixes carry a price tag.
