Let my proselytizing shift. Actually, pot is an ideal way to compose. It opens up your mind and makes you look at the commercially conditioned world around us in abberant but beautiful new ways. It stimulates limbic and deep regions of an otherwise sleeping mind. Pot, when used regularly, creates a feeling of peace and calm. All those preaching types just don't understand it. They think they know what they're talking about, but they're actually missing the point. The point is that when you get high, you're actually communicating on a "higher" level. That's why it's called getting "high." You join a cosmic council of consciousness and begin to view the world in a 5, 6, even 10 dimensional view, as apposed to the 3, maybe 4 if you're lucky, flat world view that the power-that- be want you at. You begin to realize that there are so many potentials to every action, even bundles of probabilities swirling around in a cosmic dance of Siva, the creator and destroyer of the universe. You become quarky. And that is exactly the desired state everyone should be in. I think more and more people should get high. Then all the military minds wouldn't have anyone to operate their Paladins or FAASVs or any of the other violent weapons created by "straight" engineers. It is scary if you think about it. The clearer your mind, the more dangerous you become to society and humanity at large. No one who uses pot is violent or fires weapons. It's all good. Just relax dude and spark one up. Inhale that rich, blue cloud and blow it out and ahhhh...turn on a little Santana, and everything is alright! Peace.
