"Minors" and Pot - Why We Should Let Them

There's a talk about legalizing marijuana for personal and recreational use. With that there's talk of which age one should be allowed to smoke or be in possession of a said drug without risk of being hauled off to jail, being charged as a minor, possibly being raped in prison or otherwise assaulted, being introduced to much harder drugs due to the fact that prison are the very highest form of an insecure facility, being raped and assaulted by prison guards, losing the right to vote and so and so forth. That being said jail/prison is an extremely bad place to be. It does not rehabilitate anyone and if it ever has that wasn't due to prison that was due to that individual person.

So the question is, which age should someone be allowed to willingly partake in a plant that grows naturally and has been growing naturally since time immemorial? According to popular opinion marijuana makes you lazy and we can't have lazy kids! They'll become even more spoiled than they are now! We can't have that! Drugs are bad! Kids are bad! We can't have them mixing, no no no *shakes finger*

I humbly disagree

Kids (aka "minors" (it's a dirty word around these parts, ya hear?!) are given drugs today, all sorts of drugs not the least commonly prescribed of which being Ritalin. That's right folks, the "sit down, shut up" drug,

Making your kids subservient to you since the 1960s ©
(oh the irony).

You see the goal of diagnosing someone with ADHD is to drug them up so you don't have to deal with them, why do I know this? Because these are the symptoms associated with ADHD (according to wikipedia).

Predominantly inattentive type symptoms may include:

  • Be easily distracted, miss details, forget things, and frequently switch from one activity to another (Shit, I have 5 pages of homework to do and 4 tests... goddamnit, I don't have enough time to finish all this shit!! Fuck!!!)
  • Have difficulty focusing on one thing (I have too much fucking work like I said!!)
  • Become bored with a task after only a few minutes, unless they are doing something enjoyable (Yeah listening to your voice all day is pretty fucking boring, let's do something that ISN'T so boring... like going outside to play?! WHAT I CAN'T GO OUTSIDE NOW? IT'S NOT TIME TO PLAY... NOOOO)
  • Have difficulty focusing attention on organizing and completing a task or learning something new (depends on whether or not I WANT TO LEARN IT)
  • Have trouble completing or turning in homework assignments, often losing things (e.g., pencils, toys, assignments) needed to complete tasks or activities (who the fuck wants to do homework and all 5 pages of it?! FUCK NO)
  • Not seem to listen when spoken to (just because I don't look like I'm listening, doesn't mean I'm actually not listening, I don't HAVE to look at every single word your mouth forms in order for my ears to hear it)
  • Daydream, become easily confused, and move slowly (if you DON'T day dream, there's something wrong with you, it's easy to confuse anyone if you start spouting bullshit/lies, I'm not going to run everywhere... fuck you want me to sit still!! Which is it? Sit still or run around the place... fuck... I'm so confused!! Time to think about something that isn't so mentally retarded)
  • Have difficulty processing information as quickly and accurately as others (I learn at MY own pace, fuck off)
  • Struggle to follow instructions. (Maybe I'd follow them IF YOU EXPLAINED THEM MORE CLEARLY, ASSHOLE)

Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type symptoms may include:

  • Fidget and squirm in their seats (sitting down for 5 hours is killer on the joints)
  • Talk nonstop (I'm tired of hearing YOU talk so much, now it's MY turn, bitch)
  • Dash around, touching or playing with anything and everything in sight (I'VE BEEN SITTING IN THE FUCKING SEAT ALL DAY, I'M BORED AS FUCK)
  • Have trouble sitting still during dinner, school, and story time (I'VE BEEN SITTING A FUCKING CHAIR ALL DAY, WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU EXPECT, MORE SITTING? FUCK NO!)
  • Be constantly in motion (I'm like a shark if I don't move I die... of boredom)
  • Have difficulty doing quiet tasks or activities. (Well... exCUSE me if moving things around cause noise and disrupt YOUR day, YOU aren't forced to sit a fucking chair without moving ALL DAY LONG, ARE YOU?)
and also these manifestations primarily of impulsivity

  • Be very impatient (Being forced to sit in a hard, cold chair all day will do that to you... NOW LET ME OUT OF THIS FUCKING CHAIR ALREADY)
  • Blurt out inappropriate comments, show their emotions without restraint, and act without regard for consequences (Yeah like "fuck you teacher, I'm not sitting down anymore! My joints are killing me!? What about exercise is good for you do you NOT understand?! No one everyone is so fat nowadays, STOP STIFLING MY EMOTIONS!!! I'm fed up with your bullshit teacher, let me fucking out of this fucking prison already!!!)
  • Have difficulty waiting for things they want or waiting their turns in games (I WANT TO GO HOME NOW, WHAT ABOUT NOW DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND YOU FUCKWITS?!?)
You see this? All these symptoms are NORMAL CHILDREN BEHAVIORS!
Children are being forcibly medicated (remember they can't refuse or consent to medical treatment!)

This is the type of drug children should NOT be on under ANY circumstances for these behaviors. Side note, did you know there's a fucking "disorder" called

Which symptoms are THIS FUCKING BULLSHIT:

A pattern of negativistic, hostile, and defiant behavior lasting at least 6 months, during which four (or more) of the following are present:
Note: Consider a criterion met only if the behavior occurs more frequently than is typically observed in individuals of comparable age and developmental level.
  1. often loses temper (dealing with assholes all day is an unfortunate side effect)
  2. often argues with adults (OMFG, DIFFERING OPINIONS!??1 HOLY SHIT!!)
  3. often actively defies or refuses to comply with adults' requests or rules (Unreasonable rules are intolerable)
  4. often deliberately annoys people (you fucking annoy me, asshole)
  5. often blames others for his or her mistakes or misbehavior (that's right bitch it's YOUR FAULT! No really... it is, you caused this, asshole)
  6. is often touchy or easily annoyed by others (YEAH, YOU)
  7. is often angry and resentful (Wouldn't you be angry for being treated like an incompetent monkey all the time?!)
  8. is often spiteful or vindictive (I WANT TO CONTROL MY FUCKING LIFE ASSHOLE)
No wonder kids want to smoke pot! No wonder ANYONE wants to smoke when they're treated worse than dirt just because they're under 21!

Yep, I said 21 not 18. Why? Because the argument is that no one under 21 is competent enough to handle marijuana (hurr durr when they can handle RITALIN? What the fuck shit?!)

Why is this? Well since alcohol can kill those under 21 marijuana can too right? WRONG. Marijuana has not killed a single person, or caused cancer etc. Nothing of the sort. So why 21? Because 18-20 year olds are not adults and HELL NO under-18s are sure as HELL not going to be able to smoke the sacred grass because it makes them lazy!! Well that's what you wanted you fuckshits, those erroneously diagnosed with ADHD were too active and now that there's a drug they actually WANT to take you deny them it?! What the motherfucking hell?!

Yeah, so we should let them. Why should we let them smoke? Here's why (besides the fact they're all already drugged up with ritalin and the like which causes some nasty side effects, marijuana only causes sleepiness and munchies.... not near as bad as ritalin's)

  1. HARMLESS -- they can't overdose on it no matter how hard you abusive parents shove it down their throats (that's right you crazies, you can't kill them with ritalin anymore!! HA AHA HA)
  2. Side effects - sleepiness and munchies
  3. They don't have to smoke it retards, they can eat it in food or drink it in tea if you're so damn concerned about "lung cancer" (no one has ever gotten cancer from smoking marijuana either, HAHAHA)
  4. They already do it rather you like it or not but are getting imprisoned, introduced to drugs and people that will ACTUALLY eventually lead to their death and losing financial aid for school so WHAD'YA KNOW they're forced BY LAW to go back on the streets BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO GO TO COLLEGE BECAUSE OF A DRUG CONVICTION AND BETTER THEMSELVES SO THEY'RE STUCK OUT ON THE STREETS. GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT LAWMAKING ASSHOLES.
