Earlier today, I did a "Land of Democracy Update" over the very recent Fed raids in Colorado in advance of what's effectively blanket legalization of marijuana as decided by Colorado voters recently. (Thanks, Choom Master.)
I actually thought Dr. John Mitchell was tongue-in-cheeking me on Twitter.
That's why I replied with this.
But he was actually serious, the little fuckhead.
pot use damages hippocampal function. Alters cytoarchitecture. This is locus of human memory function. New neuron growth damaged
I actually don't smoke it all that often and I don't like having it around. I rely on friends for the occasion here & there—twice per month would be a good estimation. I just prefer my whiskey, at which I'm expert. I had my day way back when, 32 years ago. Stoned literally 24/7, and actually got my best grades in college. A 3.8, all As and a single B. Went to class stoned. Studied stoned. Took tests stoned.
Problem was, I don't like being stoned that very much. Too intense for me (except on the occasion) as I introvert big time. Mental masturbation, and I get absolutely nothing accomplished. On occasion, fine. Not a regular deal to me and I found that out quick.
Here, DOKTOR. This was just 3 months ago, after 32 years of damaged hippocampal function, altered cytoarchitecture—with obvious negative effects on the locus of my memory (this was after I started a business in my bedroom and grew it to 30 employees and $3.5 mil annual revenue, incidentally)—and the inability to form new neurons in spite of the fact that I learned to fly hang gliders 15 years ago, then sailplanes, then powered aircraft.
Make sure you see the last coupla minutes, because that's smokin' by any standards.
Poor me. Destroyed by smoking the Devil's Weed for 32 years.
Dr. John Mitchell, in Southern California: you and those like you are the absolute worst kinda shit. You presume, because of a fucking MD dregree, to dictate to others and clap your hands when lives get destroyed over it by thugs in gang colors under the color of law.
Go. Fuck. Yourself. Dr. Mitchell.
