Marijuana, Mind Control, and Government Conspiracy

Marijuana and other drugs are nothing more than a government conspiracy to keep "free thinkers" in the dark and under their control.

Everyone is always telling you that marijuana is bad for you, and while that is true, there is definitely more to it than that. If drugs like marijuana are illegal just because they are bad for you, wouldn’t alcohol, caffeine, junk food and cigarettes be illegal too? It is my theory that the government wants you to get high for their own gain and is using reverse psychology to get you to do it.

Some people may be under the delusion that they are thinking more clearly when high, but that is just not true. Any idiot can come up with a crazy theory about the government, high or not, but it takes someone in a clear state of mind to actually do anything about it. The whole “war on drugs” thing is just a sham to get the rebellious types to do drugs and keep them from thinking clearly so they are no longer a threat. The government knows that if they make something illegal, people will only want it more, in an attempt to rebel against the establishment. In reality, these people are merely pawns in the government’s plan for total control. If everyone who is against fascist government policies is always stoned, there is no one left to stop the government from taking away our freedoms. Even if they take action while they aren’t high, no one is going to take a pothead seriously. The government can continue to oppress the people as we move closer to complete fascist control.

You see, if they just made marijuana legal, no one would want to try it, or at least the ones who did would be the law-abiding, government-trusting, bumper-sticker-patriot types who already have no clue as to what is really going on. This would be pointless, as these people’s minds are already under the government’s control. By encouraging the people who would rebel against corrupted policies to get high and unable to think clearly, the government can keep us all under their control. It’s easier to control people when they can’t think clearly.

The biggest downfall of rebellious free-thinkers is that they sometimes get so caught up in rebelling against the establishment that they forget to actually think. As long as something appears to be against authority, they will do it. In this respect, they are just as ignorant as everyone else in this country. How exactly do you expect to stop a corrupt government if you can’t even think straight enough to find your pants? If you stay off pot and all other drugs, it will be easier to actually make a difference in the country, and in the world. If you are thinking clearly, you can run for public office and help conquer fascism from the inside. If you are just one of those pothead punks who are always rambling about anarchy, move to Somalia. You shouldn’t be pissed off that we have a government; you should be pissed off about how our government is run!

In conclusion, by putting yourself in an altered state of mind, you are only helping to push America closer to totalitarianism. The government is only using marijuana as a tool to keep free-thinkers from thinking. This is just one more strategy to keep us all dumbed down and under their control. If you hate freedom, go ahead and continue smoking pot and doing whatever other drugs you think are cool. If you really want the government to change, you have to stay in a clear state of mind and actually take action.

    I must respectfully disagree.

    The end of prohibition was a result of the same type of outcry we see now by pot users wanting to legalize pot. We see how prevalent alcohol use, sale, etc.. is now. So, history debunks your theory that legalizing will cause people to not want to try it!

    The government doesn’t stop free thinking…..personal complacency, laziness, lack nuclear family units, lack of moral values, the path of lest resistance, welfare abuse, etc…….all personal CHOICES. These are what have stalled free thinking.

    Thank you for this subject and voicing your opinion.

    I agree 100% with you. In reply to jo olivers comment, I could have sworn Jo was naming off the side effects of habitual marijuana use “personal complacency, laziness, lack nuclear family units, lack of moral values, the path of least resistance, welfare abuse” all really sound like the lives of the pot heads I know. Be brave & face life sober, it’s the only way we can act and redeem at the least the lives of our own families. The pot heads are so deluded they don’t even know they’re goose-stepping. That’s what’s so dangerous about pot, it’s exceedingly deceptive, convincing the victim that they are soaring with eagles and maintaining their freedom, while they’re willingly checking their brains at the door. It’s frightening to me to see so many people willingly walking into their own demise, while demanding their pacifier; alas, a brave new world indeed.

    Excuse me. Hi, um. Everyone has a personal choice. I don’t think the government gives a care whether the citizens are doing drugs or not. I mean, I know a lot of stoners, all good friends of mine. Some of them, well some of them aren’t the brightest people yet there are other’s who are complete geniuses. They are going to college have a degree in engineering and are helping companies come up with futuristic products. Seriously, the government didn’t ban pot because they wanted to screw us over in the long run. Cotton farmers protested that hemp farms would take away from business.

    It’s not the the pot, it’s how the person chooses to use it. If they are smart about it and have their priorities set, then they don’t have to worry about anything. I agree with jo oliver, most that is what stalls free thinking. Most people have free thinking, it’s just everyone waits for everyone else to take action. We aren’t robots, I’m sure we all have free thinking, potheads or not.

    One other thing, I have to disagree with Mitzi,that is quite stereotypical to classify potheads as deadbeats. Those who smoke don’t all use it as a pacifer to help them with life. It’s something to do, something enjoyable. Many people who are experienced, heavy smokers were willing to quite to get a better job or any step ahead in life. It’s not the drugs, the alcohol, it’s the person behind it. They are the ones controlling it and deciding how much, when, where and most importantly why.

    Thank you.

    Anything that keeps you ‘comfortably numb’ as the song calls it, is dangerous. Speaking from personal experience THC is both a friend in harsh times and an enemy. It allows a breather from troubles but provides a handy hole to bury yourself in. Overall it does instil a lethargy that is very hard to let go of. I would also have to admit that the mind under the influence is an easier mind to mould with whatever unbelievable spin.

    This smells of an opinion piece from someone who has never smoked pot. Read Carl Sagan’s description of his experiences for some actual insight. Moderate cannabis use promotes creativity and grants new perspectives to the user, something I’m sure our government doesn’t want happening on a large scale with the populace. Abused, pot can be a curse as can any other habit one becomes fixated upon. Used properly it can be a pleasant and rewarding teacher.

    This is just the tip of the ice berg but I commend you on taking this step and making a logical argument that most (as long as they aren’t high) people can follow. I know alot about this on a spiritual/metaphysical level and what is actually “going on” with our “government” is far more sinister than most people would imagine. Without going into too many details, I will just say that those whom you have described as the rebels against government are being positioned for a form of slavery. Most of those who are habitual users of marijuanas will soon become slaves because of the effect the drug has taken on them. Great article. Keep spreading the word.

    stubzwhereareyou,
    I must extend my hand and say…Thank You. This drug is a Yin drug. It effects the liver, as most drugs do. We are more than just “bodies”. We are ENERGY and everything affects us to some degree. I have been saying for some time now that people need to THINK! Listen, do you think if this drug was some type of “ascension” drug that the government would be broadcasting it everywhere, NO. The plot is so so so sinister,*shaking my head*. If most of you only knew what was going on you would shut off the TV, put down the pipe and began to educate yourself.

    This drug effects the front part of the brain, this is the area that helps with reasoning and is also the area that allows hypnosis to be effective. So can you see it now, while you are smoking, feeling that you are gaining wisdom, not knowing that you are opening yourself to a like vibration, bringing back with you energies that cause you to depend more and more on the substance, your government is constantly sending messages via tv and radio. You are constantly being programmed and brainwashed. Now you should know this so called “ban” on the drug is simply a sham. Just as Marre states, they know that if they say “NO” you will run for it cause you are standing against the establishment..*lol*.

    Do your research, don’t take my word for it. DILIGENTLY do your homework because it takes intense research. Pair the word “conspiracy” with the drug, as well as words like “mind control, hypnosis and government” then w can talk about all the WONDERFUL effects of weed.
    now the argument about someone having “success” and still smoking weed, well, I feel that your definition of “success” and “good living” shows that the brainwashing has worked. Just because one has money or eats healthy does not mean that weed as done them well. Continue to live and use and it WILL take effect. If you cant see it, those that are close to you will.
    RESEARCH

    I used to think this. After a huge drug doing phase this last year. Taking MDMA and smoking a 100 dollar nugget after doing LSD before I go to a rave… And you have valid points. But the fallacy is that we ant change anything while high.

    The truth is we can’t change anything period. The system is in lockdown, clamps on our mind, policeman in every friend. A sheep herd that patrols itself.

    Insane, like prisoners who look at the guy digging his way out, and kick him in the teeth for being “stupid/different”. No one can escape, we must wait till our controllers show themselves, then we strike. Take back the earth.

    till then, drugs or not, we are all slaves till we realize our collectivity and rise from bondage.

    This is one of the most illogical, irrational, and unevidenced articles I have ever read. Please read up on actual scientific research from peer-reviewed journals. The American Medical Association and American Psychological Association is a good place to start.

    Alcohol, first of all, is vastly more toxic, more of a threat to the user, and more of a threat to society, than marijuana is. This is backed up by a massive body of evidence that continues to grow larger every day. The only reason marijuana still remains illegal is because of the lobbyists such as yourself, and the alcohol companies that see it as a threat. Examine the largest contributors to anti-marijuana campaigns and it becomes quite clear.

    Furthermore, less than 5 % of people who smoke marijuana abuse it. That is, 95 % of people who smoke marijuana are not who you call “stoners.” There are politicians, lawyers, musicians, professors (of which I know, I am in graduate school for clinical psychology), judges, firefighters and many other individuals who smoke marijuana moderately.

    If the government were to create oppression on the people, they would do it through the glorification of money, the exploitation of the female gender, and the creation of only two political parties in order to have us feel like we have a choice. Look at the products, stores, and “choices” around you today.

    I am not sure if you have ever tried marijuana. I will not attempt to pressure you or persuade you to try it. What I can say though is this: I smoke it moderately. I get straight A’s in my graduate school program. I balance an incredibly busy schedule. I am married. I pay my mortgage and bills on time. I plan on helping society progress during my life. I am happy. Marijuana is just one little part of my life…

    “The American Medical Association and American Psychological Association” all funded by the same people who funded Alcohol Prohibition when Ford came out with the first automobile that ran off of alcohol, that way we had to pay for oil to run automobiles instead of cheaper alcohol. Then once the system was set in place, guess what alcohol is made legal again. It is illegal because the hand up top has a plan for it. Being high right now to me it feels as it has a socializing effect, making the user more passive and accepting. This supports collectivism. However ideas on what to do with society come from elsewhere, the individual free thinkers. These free thinkers communicate these ideas through television which starts a social wave of monkey see monkey do. This is why sex, drugs, crime, and drinking are promoted and being educated, original, and independent are not. They will make the embicile the guy that gets the women, has the money, and has the fun. We approach TV land and leave reality to be plundered by the pyschotic genuise elite dynasty. Feudalism my friend will always exist, it just has newer ways to bind its slaves. “No-one is more enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” – Thomas Jefferson, slave plantation owner, Freemason member, and supporter of the Bavarian Illuminati founder, Adam Weishaupt.

    also inventor of the two party system: Democrat Vs Rupublican for the working class to perpetually blame each other instead of the elite class that are the true decision makers. Gerbils on the wheel. Running a business in capitalism. BUSYness. corporations create problems for corporations to fix, its an endless cycle, where progress, in the end, is never achieved

    First off, might want to educate yourself on this topic before trying to speak on it. Pot Does NOT cause side effects such as personal complacency, laziness, lack nuclear family units, lack of moral values, the path of least resistance, welfare abuse. These are personal traits that have nothing to do with marijuana. People who smoke pot that are this way, would be this way without pot. For you to say people smoke pot to rebel because the government made it illegal is the dumbest thing i have ever heard. pot was legal at one time.. people smoke then and they will smoke now regardless of the law. Pot does not hurt anyone. show me one death or dangerous side effects caused by smoking pot. you cant stop what the majority of people want

    My beliefs are this.

    I believe that the current way of living is unsustainable.
    I believe that humanity made it this way by the way of greed and selfishness

    {NOT BLAMING ANY PARTICULAR PEOPLE FOR THE ORIGIN OF THIS}

    My beliefs are a mixture of so many sources because I have been at a stage of life where I realize I need to find what I believe and I have explored so many things.

    It started out that I was just very fed up (I am now 20 and half smoked marijuana since the age of 10). So for a start I believe that marijuana definitely brainwashes people if they are in a situation that is half comfortable and using it constantly. I believe that if someone hits rock bottom from anything (including a marijuana addiction) that is often what it takes for them to start questioning what they believe in and gives them the motivation to act on it. Maybe this is because their confidence has been damaged in the past that they need to take this route. Some are born with the confidence and ability to find their beliefs from an early age. It differs

    I never used to believe in any ONE thing. And I still don’t fully. I believe in a large mixture of theories on whatever scale you take it.

    I believe that some characteristics we are born with and have a predisposition to. I believe that some characteristics are acquired from the environment and people around us.

    I think that as a survival mechanism humans naturally try to look after the people that they are closest to. I think this is the root of the desire for power. I think this desire for power caused the implementation of money and currency as once someone has enough power naturally they will try to form some kind of order to keep it that way – so to protect the people closest to them.

    I also believe that the environmental effects that a person experiences are equally important in shaping their beliefs and behavior. Whether this is all deterministic (based on biological processes that we don’t really have control of) or even based on our subconscious cognitive processes up to that point in life, it is vital in shaping our beliefs.

    In most western countries, society is divided from the outset the moment people start to vote so nobody is ever going to make everyone happy in this way.

    I think this world is past making a ‘fair’ and ’sustainable’ way of life for the people in it so at this point I think the importance is trying to start with the people nearest to you who respect what you say enough to possibly adopt and accept it. In a society that thrives on making the lower classes compete against each other how is everyone EVER going to adopt the same view?

    Whether we like it or not… this world will reach chaos point one day and if people are not all willing to sacrifice for equality

    (which is VERY unlikely given the degeneration of moral standards through most countries in the world – usually achieved through the mismatched messages that are constantly imprinted on us by the media)

    then we will degenerate further until we are back to basic instincts all over again. There will always be a point where the poor are oppressed so much that they realize it despite any amount of brainwashing and through sheer number I don’t think any rich people would remain rich by any means other than mass mass murder.

    Even if that happens and the poor win. The basic instincts of animal nature will make the same cycle happen again just like
    before.

    Think about it. What do you think will happen when the world starts to run out of resources? The people in power at the time with the technology that COULD possibly keep them their would face a dilemma of whether they want to save everyone else or do what ‘all’ humans have an instinctual desire to do – be able to reproduce themselves. This is why I sympathize with believers in the illuminati to an extent because they are scared of that happening. But I also believe that at heart those are mostly selfish people too because given the chance… they would turn the tables and be just as unfair to other people.

    That is unless we all get wiped out by natural disaster.

    That is my argument for a reason to believe in a higher power.

    In my search for a higher power I met plenty of people. Some of the most decent people I met were christian and do you know what? What is more important than being happy and making those around you happy on the time that you do have??? and trying to instill on your children the same message so that hopefully it spreads??

    When I accepted God I was at ease. God and the sacrifice Jesus made allows me to believe that the fate of the earth is not the end and that there IS still some point in trying to be a decent human being who walks in kindness. If there was no God I would be planning some way of starting to prepare with people who share the same beliefs as me right now because if God didn’t exist… Why would I sit back and let people in power be in power at all????

    I guess that’s what you politicians think you are doing but I think more harm than good is done at this stage with the population of this earth. We destroy/pollute it just by sending a message for people to vote.

    All the money that people so desperately care about is spent on things they wouldn’t dream of saying yes to point blank. And if they did they are weak people who have not found their own personal Kingdom of Heaven. It lives in everyone even if they do not know it.

    I think my morals lie with the environment at heart but I have accepted that God is the creator of the environment. Perhaps I am deluding myself because I see that humanity is beyond savior in any other way.

    This is how my journey came to be. I am now christian after spending 99% atheist and to get back to the real point,

    I THINK EVERYONE AT THIS STAGE SHOULD BELIEVE WHAT THEY LIKE. WE ARE TOO LATE TO AGREE ON THE SAME THING. APART FROM ONE: DON’T BE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE. WHETHER IT IS SPIRITUALLY OR PHYSICALLY. SO SO SAD BUT TRUE.

    Of course I wish everyone had my beliefs. Who doesn’t? I’m not going to enforce them but I will preach them all day and stand up to anyone who tries to FORCE theirs on me… And I will be ready and guilt free. Trust me and trust God.

    I’m not saying turn to a branch of organized religion. Or even read the Bible everyday. Just know how God would like you to live and try your hardest to do it. At the very least you will find it rewarding in day to day life after a while even if you don’t believe in the God part yet.

    In most western countries, society is divided from the outset the moment people start to vote so nobody is ever going to make everyone happy in this way.
    I think this world is past making a fair and sustainable way of life for the people in it so at this point I think the importance is trying to start with the people nearest to you who respect what you say enough to possibly adopt and accept it. In a society that thrives on making the lower classes compete against each other how is everyone EVER going to adopt the same view?
    Whether we like it or not… this world will reach chaos point one day and if people are not all willing to sacrifice for equality
    (which is VERY unlikely given the degeneration of moral standards through most countries in the world – usually achieved through the mismatched messages that are constantly imprinted on us by the media)
    then we will degenerate further until we are back to basic instincts all over again. There will always be a point where the poor are oppressed so much that they realize it despite any amount of brainwashing and through sheer number I don\\\\\\\’t think any rich people would remain rich by any means other than mass mass murder.

    Even if that happens and the poor win. The basic instincts of animal nature will make the same cycle happen again just like
    before.

    Think about it. What do you think will happen when the world starts to run out of resources? The people in power at the time with the technology that COULD possibly keep them their would face a dilemma of whether they want to save everyone else or do what \\\\\\\’all\\\\\\\’ humans have an instinctual desire to do – be able to reproduce themselves. This is why I sympathize with believers in the illuminati to an extent because they are scared of that happening. But I also believe that at heart those are mostly selfish people too because given the chance… they would turn the tables and be just as unfair to other people.

    That is unless we all get wiped out by natural disaster.

    That is my argument for a reason to believe in a higher power.

    In my search for a higher power I met plenty of people. Some of the most decent people I met were christian and do you know what? What is more important than being happy and making those around you happy on the time that you do have??? and trying to instill on your children the same message so that hopefully it spreads??

    When I accepted God I was at ease. God and the sacrifice Jesus made allows me to believe that the fate of the earth is not the end and that there IS still some point in trying to be a decent human being who walks in kindness. If there was no God I would be planning some way of starting to prepare with people who share the same beliefs as me right now because if God didn\\\\\\\’t exist… Why would I sit back and let people in power be in power at all????

    I guess that\\\\\\\’s what you politicians think you are doing but I think more harm than good is done at this stage with the population of this earth. We destroy/pollute it just by sending a message for people to vote.

    All the money that people so desperately care about is spent on things they wouldn\\\\\\\’t dream of saying yes to point blank. And if they did they are weak people who have not found their own personal Kingdom of Heaven. It lives in everyone even if they do not know it.

    I think my morals lie with the environment at heart but I have accepted that God is the creator of the environment. Perhaps I am deluding myself because I see that humanity is beyond savior in any other way.

    This is how my journey came to be. I am now christian after spending 99% atheist and to get back to the real point,

    I THINK EVERYONE AT THIS STAGE SHOULD BELIEVE WHAT THEY LIKE. WE ARE TOO LATE TO AGREE ON THE SAME THING. APART FROM ONE: DON\\\\\\\’T BE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE. WHETHER IT IS SPIRITUALLY OR PHYSICALLY. SO SO SAD BUT TRUE.

    Of course I wish everyone had my beliefs. Who doesn\\\\\\\’t? I\\\\\\\’m not going to enforce them but I will preach them all day and stand up to anyone who tries to FORCE theirs on me… And I will be ready and guilt free. Trust me and trust God.

    I\\\\\\\’m not saying turn to a branch of organized religion. Or even read the Bible everyday. Just know how God would like you to live and try your hardest to do it. At the very least you will find it rewarding in day to day life after a while even if you don\\\\\\\’t believe in the God part yet.

    My beliefs are this.

    I believe that the current way of living is unsustainable.
    I believe that humanity made it this way by the way of greed and selfishness
    {NOT BLAMING ANY PARTICULAR PEOPLE FOR THE ORIGIN OF THIS}
    My beliefs are a mixture of so many sources because I have been at a stage of life where I realize I need to find what I believe and I have explored so many things.
    It started out that I was just very fed up (I am now 20 and half smoked marijuana since the age of 10). So for a start I believe that marijuana definitely brainwashes people if they are in a situation that is half comfortable and using it constantly. I believe that if someone hits rock bottom from anything (including a marijuana addiction) that is often what it takes for them to start questioning what they believe in and gives them the motivation to act on it. Maybe this is because their confidence has been damaged in the past that they need to take this route. Some are born with the confidence and ability to find their beliefs from an early age. It differs
    I never used to believe in any ONE thing. And I still don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t fully. I believe in a large mixture of theories on whatever scale you take it.
    I believe that some characteristics we are born with and have a predisposition to. I believe that some characteristics are acquired from the environment and people around us.
    I think that as a survival mechanism humans naturally try to look after the people that they are closest to. I think this is the root of the desire for power. I think this desire for power caused the implementation of money and currency as once someone has enough power naturally they will try to form some kind of order to keep it that way – so to protect the people closest to them.
    I also believe that the environmental effects that a person experiences are equally important in shaping their beliefs and behavior. Whether this is all deterministic (based on biological processes that we don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t really have control of) or even based on our subconscious cognitive processes up to that point in life, it is vital in shaping our beliefs.

    OMG! I have wasted my time reading this article. Jennifer or whatever your name is who wrote this. Continue taking your government issued prescription drugs and watch more commercials created by TRUTH. You are already brainwashed. I\’m sorry.

    cigarettes and alcohol are more widely used then cannabis…this fact alone debunks your argument that they made marijuana illegal so more people would do it…

    What I have learned through my life experience is marijuana does not make one lazy it has the opposite effect but let me talk about self esteem, because I think a lot of it has to do with an individuals self esteem. I had a boss who smoked a quarter ounce a day he had high self esteem and was very motivated and when he was high he became even sharper and more manipulative and he could get what he wanted with more ease. He hired people who had low self esteem including me. Marijauna definately makes me a harder worker but it makes me complacent (the opposite of my boss) and makes me question myself so I am not willing to stand up for myself when I need to, so my boss would smoke me up all day and then, for example, he would flip out on me for something I knew was not my fault, but I would question myself and think well maybe I am not the best worker. I could never stand up for my self when I was high (only when I was high). In conclusion this article is very obtuse and has no merit.
