Marijuana - the inner peace for youth

                            Marijuana - the inner peace for youth
Nothing intrigued and fascinated me more than the music and drug culture of 1960’s. Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and The Beatles were nothing less than gods to masses. Spending my teenage listening to these musicians brought the urge to try the drugs as well. Was it LSD and the hallucinogens behind the genius of their music or were they really that gifted was the question that baffled me.


At last I succumbed to this desire of trying Marijuana. A night out with friends was chosen as the ideal time to do it. My friend who had a history of drug abuse boasted that he had scored Afghani marijuana for me and promised it will be an amazing experience. We smoked up and it actually was quite a potent drug, within minutes I felt light headed and really started enjoying myself. Well, I guess at that moment, the tingling voice in my head said " Marijuana is the inner peace for youth ".  Anyways, besides that I found out that getting weed smell out of room was another huge problem that I had to deal with!

But then it started growing on, I could feel that my reflexes were slowing down and my heart beating slower than ever. Things got worse when I got intothe “still phase”, I could hear my friends making jokes and picking on me but Icouldn’t answer them or even move a muscle. Thirst stabbed its pangs in my throat; it felt so parched that even breathing was made difficult. I wanted to scream out to my friends to give me water or jolt me out of this paralyses but thewords just won’t come out. This is when panic overtook me; my mind was numbed by a torrent of thoughts, guilt, fear and anxiety. This grew until I erupted into a fit of nausea and spewed out on the floor. The thing that shook me the most was the attitude of my friends, they hardly made a move to comfort me orhelp me up, and they kept on enjoying their buzz.

The experience left me pondering that is the “high” of drugs worth it when you eventually end up on the floor.

  2. Anything that takes a person out of his/her sense is Haram.

    Anything that causes harm to a person is Haram.

    Anything that is a waste is Haram.

    Marijuana, dobe, coc, speed, hash, ice etc are all haram, for all the above three reasons.

    so as a muslim we should avoid it

    Being high is a great feeling and of course if you take away a good deal of time in this state your going to feel a little bummed. It's normal, wouldn't call it a withdrawal syndrome, you're just missing a good thing is all.

  5. Marijuana is not addicting like other hard drugs or alcohol. Also marijuana helps people with ADD, makes them focus better, and sometimes learn better. Sometimes when you smoke your nerves are more dull, but sometimes they can be more alive, so to speak. You need to know that everybody reacts to marijuana differently.
    well everyone has his own point of view...

  6. Although dangers exist for marijuana users of all ages, risk is greatest for the young. For them, the impact of marijuana on learning is critical, and pot often proves pivotal in the failure to master vital interpersonal coping skills or make appropriate life-style choices. Thus, marijuana can inhibit maturity.

    Another concern is marijuana’s role as a "gateway drug," which makes subsequent use of more potent and disabling substances more likely. The Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University found adolescents who smoke pot 85 times more likely to use cocaine than their non–pot smoking peers. And 60 percent of youngsters who use marijuana before they turn 15 later go on to use cocaine.

    But many teens encounter serious trouble well short of the "gateway." Marijuana is, by itself, a high-risk substance for adolescents. More than adults, they are likely to be victims of automobile accidents caused by marijuana’s impact on judgment and perception. Casual sex, prompted by compromised judgment or marijuana’s disinhibiting effects, leaves them vulnerable not only to unwanted pregnancy but also to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

    I'm not saying it's good, i'm not saying it's bad, i'm saying it can be both. I for one have only been high twice, once it was one helluva good time, other time it made me depressed.

    Young people who use marijuana suffer from impaired memory and ability to learn, difficulties in thinking and problem solving, distorted perception, anxiety attacks or feelings of paranoia,Impaired muscle coordination and judgment etc.Young people start using marijuana at an early age and use it for a longer period of time are at the risk of severe respiratory problems, heart attack, cancer of the head or neck. It may badly affect the immune system’s ability to fight disease.Teens aged 12-17 who smoke marijuana weekly are three times more likely than non-users to have suicidal thoughts.

  9. Many people don’t think of marijuana as addictive—they are wrong. About 9 percent of people who use marijuana become dependent on it. The number increases to about one in six among those who start using it at a young age, and to 25 to 50 percent among daily users. Marijuana increases dopamine, which creates the good feelings or “high” associated with its use. A user may feel the urge to smoke marijuana again, and again, and again to re-create that experience. Repeated use could lead to addiction—a disease where people continue to do something, even when they are aware of the severe negative consequences at the personal, social, academic, and professional levels.

  10. Marijuana and all the other drugs are haram in islam...so being a muslim we should avoid these type of stuff...

  11. 1) Bad for your health : THat alone should stop you from doing it. You dont need Islam to tell you that. So if someon asks you why you dont smoke you dont have to say ISlam dosent allow it tell them its bad for the health.

    2) Makes you smell: You smoke which means you stink. YOu may not be able to smell it but others do and they go away with a bad impression of you. They wont say it to you but they detest your smell. And as a muslim you are a model of Islam and sent down to leave a good impression on muslims.

    3) Waste of Money: A lot of peoples income is spent on cigarreettes when it could be spent on their parents and their wives and kids. Which causees a lot of social problems

    4) Breaks Relationships: Smoking is a marriage breaker. You want to have a good relationship and smoke then marry someone who smokes the same amount as you and die 20 years early together. WHat a sick life

    Its common sense. Use your head and dont smoke! Dont wait for a fatwa to be released that smoking is not allowed in Islam. Stop Smoking because YOU think its not right NOT BECAUSE someone else tells you its not right. Be a thinker not a brainwashed bunny.

    مرحبا، لقد وجدت حقا هذه المعلومات مفيدة للغاية لأنه هو سوء تفاهم بين معظم رواد الكلية / الجامعة التي الماريجوانا يزيد من التركيز ويزيد من القدرة على العمل للفرد. أنا شخصيا أعتقد أنه لا يزيد من القدرة على العمل من المسيء إلى حد ما، وذلك عندما كان الشخص المعتدي المخدرات ليست في حالة "رجم" من العقل، ولكن أيضا بعد ذلك، ما هو على المحك هو الدماغ والجهاز العصبي المركزي المعطوبة، الذي يحط من قدر الفكرية، وفرص العمل والمهارات الاجتماعية. لذلك في رأيي، انها ليست صفقة جيدة

  20. I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?

  35. when you start taking drugs,you dont really know how far you will go and how much will you lose just for the sake of mere enjoyment of a few hours,marijuana is the most killing of all!it can take you far from being a mere user to drug abuse.You lose your memory and coherence of speech.And if you ask about illnesses then i can remember of liver serosis which gives you only two years to survive after you are its victim.It is not the solution to any problem rather it is a problem itself!and being a Pakistani and muslim we should be ashamed of doing that!way to go rida!amazing work!<3 ammara saleem akhter

    marijuana or any drug even smoking is bad, one should not be addicted to any drug or habit which make him helpless and mandatory to use these drugs. It weakens willpower which is the strength of a person's soul and body . . .
    Hope this idea will aware people !!!!!

  48. i for one am totally in favor of marijuana or hash whatever you people might call it .it has been proven that "STONED" beings are likely to be highly efficient and more neurotic than normal . now why is that a bad thing ? why doesn't an average teenager no longer have the right to enjoy and relax after a tiring day of work and anxiousness. People nowadays tend to believe that the youth is the problem which is no longer controllable . well guess what people it has always been this and always will be ! since the beginning of time man has always found peace in blaming ! Blaming marijuana for a bad experience or what guys like us call it 'A BAD TRIP' is not ethical and worldly. please for once get hold of your issues and don't blame something for someone . you just made wrong friends KID !

    Indeed Marijuana Is The Curse To The Youth And It Has Ruined Soo Many. I Believe Getting High Is Nothing Some People Even Gets High By Just Having Red Bull Even I Myself. I Never Tried Marijuana But As Per Your Experience I Can Say This That There Are Many Other Pleasures In This World To Enjoy And Experience Something New Rather Than Having A Soo Called Pleasure In Which You Eventually End Up On The Floor!
    Governments Across The World Should Take Serious Measures For The Youth So That They Can Overcome From This Terrible State!
