Re: "Reefer madness?" letter to the editor, Wednesday, Jan. 23.
After spending last evening at another meeting of Narcotics Anonymous, I find it laughable to read this statement: ". most people who use these drugs have positive experiences, gain inspiration and insight and would mostly use them again given the chance to do so."
And so the drug's lure has begun to lead you into addiction.
The truth is, recovering addicts gain insights, positive experiences and inspiration after they stop doping and live a clean life.
As for the soft-sell, misunderstood cannabis, the fact is the new product is more potent every year, not to mention highly addictive.
Contrary to the Internet's many reports of it not being addictive, I can introduce you to "lifers" who just can't shake that crap, and all of them live in near-poverty.
Or come to the meetings and meet those who have broken the addiction and listen to their story: the truth.
When entering into mind-altering substances, you need to check in with yourself.
Why do I need to risk possible entrapment when life has so many other choices? Try parachuting instead.
