I had an interesting conversation with a friend yesterday who in summary said these: in response to all my questions. U can imagine what i asked, but his answers are really intriguing.

  • "I just take it to calm myself.
  • No, I am not addicted to it.
  • You cant be addicted to weed.
  • You can always stop it
  • In fact, i plan to stop next month, because I want to get into a serious relationship with a babe and una too complain.
  • I started smoking it back when I was in university in naija, like 15 years ago
  • It helps me to get more creative
  • No, the ones here don't make u go naked like in naija
  • naija type is 'adulterated', hence not healthy

etc etc.....

And I wonder....seriously, why do our young people take weed? I've never been able to understand the need to puff weed! Funny, my friends on campus in naija made their 'wraps'...but i guess that ingrained thing from home that if you take 'igboh'., you will go mad and run naked on the street stuck with me till date!
At a point then, i just told myself repeatedly that I was naturally hyperactive, so, taking weed WILL DEFINITELY make me go mad!!

When i asked this my artist friend to describe the feeling they get.... he painted it like you go to heaven and back! in fact, he told me that i should try a puff and get into bed with my hubby, that I would see angels! lol.

I asked him if its the same feeling of morphine [the closest to HIGH I've ever felt! Courtesy of doctors in hospital after surgery, via the pain pumping thing they put in my hand to control my pain!]. he said no, that the morphine feeling is a 'downer' and weed is an 'upper'. OK! hmmm...

I asked why & how of course. And he said the downer makes u sleep, but the upper does not.

Ok, I would never know as I know i will never take weed or any such thing!
If the feeling I had in hospital when they gave the pain-killer injections or I pumped the pain killing tube plus that feeling of warmth and immediate disappearing of all pains, coupled with that sweet feeling of happiness is what weed/drug taking is all about, I think I can pass! because it is a temporary feeling! Better to find way to be naturally high and creative than to use 'substances' to achieve it.

Well, the conversation ended with me begging him NOT to graduate to cocaine or stuff like that...he said he wont, that he is stopping next month! I wish he really would!

I was surprised he actually had this talk with me. I know of some other artists who are definitely on drugs because of the erratic and crazy/unreliable ways they behave! I never would have ever suspected this my friend of being a 'igboh' smoker, because he is such a gentleman! So, does it mean that weed has 'advantages'???

People who smoke weed think there is an advantage. I would not know since I never smoke anything in my life. Naija weed makes people go crazy according to people. I don't know why but that's the word on the street! I know of a guy who smokes weed to pass his exams. He would not pass if he didn't smoke weed! Crazy stuff!

Honestly does not make sense. I see 'decent' people here puff on wrapped stuff. Even ones that claim to be Bible College graduates, one sef opened a church with his wife, but he takes weed!!!! Makes absolutely NO SENSE!!

I asked this my friend that was giving me lecture about weed why the 'Igboh' smokers in naija run mad and he explained that the ones in USA are healthier because they are grown indoors in water, while the ones in naija are grown in soil, and some things from the soil penetrates the plant to change the composition... OK, I just said 'I see', since it was not like I was reading a scientific research report to collaborate his talk. I mean, this is a weed-smoking man on his way to get stoned, painting weed smoking like its eating vanilla ice cream on a hot summer day. smh

Marijuana affects people differently. I know of a friend who is a better driver on the stuff than off.

I think there is some truth to the soil-growth versus water-growth. With soil growth, that's a lot more than just cannabis growing. I do wonder what does make the Nigerja one different.

I'd rather someone take weed than alcohol or another drug.

really? weed over alcohol? maybe its the naija fear of igboh & madness, I think alcohol is better than ganga/weed. maybe, because i dont know any alcoholic. Unless u are talking from the standpoint of effects of alcohol on liver and stuff.... they still both bad, because weed makes people act irrational too, abi?

Weed is not addictive, there is no physical dependency. Alcohol can be. Now just because someone wants to smoke weed does not mean they need to smoke weed. It's like loving chocolate, you can really want it but your body does not start convulsing or shaking if you don't get it.

Also alcohol is far dangerous on the body than weed is and will ever be.

I'm really curious as to the soil vs water growth, I may make that a research project someday. I'm really curious now because you can't control the soil (too many microbes) but you can sterilize water. Sterilizing the soil would be...interesting

That's interesting info.
Then I wonder why those ganja smoking Nigerians that act crazy at motor parks seem addicted. maybe its the Soil Vs Water thingy?

Who says they are wasting time? Who am I to define someone's time: oya, now go work, go breathe, go bath...that's up to the individual. You must realize all types of people some weed: professionals who barely have time, students who rarely have time, adults and kids: people from all walks of life smoke weed.

And it does not have to be smoked, some preferred it baked into cookies and brownies. The way it's grown will have an effect on what is in it.
