Marijuana As Magic

Marijuana / Cannabis”Pot”: as a Legal Magical Medicine

Burning and inhaling, or cooking and eating Cannabis (aka Pot), is a psychoactive experience. Psychotropic drugs are still mysterious to science, as much as spiritual experiences or imagination. Spirituality or Creativity is a way of life for many of us. Another article can explain religious, or ritual magic use of cannabis, and I will try to write it and link an essay focused on that later.

Pot allows anger to rebound inside human brains, for long enough to dissipate substantially, or often simply transmute the negative to positive feelings, without even needing to vent hostility or commit aggressive acts. Pot is one of the best tools for anger management, because humans have evolved with cannabinoid receptors in our brains which allow for symbiotic harmony between us. This natural evolution with humans, is what sets it apart from other psychedelic medicines (although other natural drugs have different ways they evolved to affect our minds). Pot is enlightened magic, and here is a fictional account to explain how some of us think in creative metaphors about reality to explain what works for us to be happier people:

I have been chewing and smoking faery-mint since I was a teen-ager. I am now 40 years old writing this memoir, and I can honestly say the benefits for me are far greater than the side-effects. Peace-of-mind, connection to Nature, and broader creativity are the main short-term and (with experience) long term powers of faery-mint.

Faery-mint grew in harmony with faeries for thousands of years. So the plant affects our brains with mutual synergistic complementary symbiotic feelings. The negative effects include smoke resin, burn damage, loss of balance, loss of tension, loss of will-power; which for those suffering from excessive anger, burning desire, stress, paralyzing fear, and over-whelming self-motivated selfish will-power it is worth it.

There is a loss of short-term memory similar to the natural tendency to forget why we came into a room, or what we were talking about; however the increased joy and comfort to recall memories long-term, and short-term memory savvy when not intoxicated again win out. Experience can train its’ use, and with moderation it aids those of us with problems like anger management, insomnia from ptsd, and depression.

Some call it faery-weed, to demean its medicinal powers. Many people have addictive impulses, and they can get addicted to the higher powers of the plant; as much as with any powerful medicine. However I have never been addicted to any-substance to the point of committing crimes, hurting others, or wasting efforts to obtain it. I never purchased faery-mint at a goblin market during those 25 years until recently, as it is legal now in some faery realms. I never had to grow or purchase it, because it was popular enough that people have always just had it and shared it. Also I was not able to grow it because humans would come and rip it up, kill it, steal it, arrest me, and fine my family.”

– Harpers Faery Outlaws  (fantasy novel) 

Final note on pot – it is non-lethal natural medicine.

Lone Ranger & Tonto

Posted in Critical Commentary of Civilization, Fictional Characters, Film Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2013 by Drogo

I am pleased to say that all “critical reviews” of the ‘Lone Ranger’ film were mistaken. The 2013 “Lone Ranger & Tonto” film was excellent, incredible, and unreal beyond expectations!!! Mom and I loved it, and discussed layer after layer of the fun afterwards. I know many modern day Comanche loved that they respected Indians by making Tonto a more important partner, and telling the story from Tonto’s perspective. The thrill of the old Western is still there for us whites. One of the points that critics miss is that this Tonto is not a stereo-type of typical Indians, and in fact states the opposite; this Tonto is a freak that wears shamanic war-paint with a crow totem on his head, because he is a loner and an out-cast. I am still a fan of the older Lone Rangers, but this version allows the hero to be more approachable, not impossibly perfect; and this allows Tonto to be just as unique and important as his white cowboy counter-part, for once. The Lone Ranger and Tonto are both rebel outlaws in the eyes of social normality.
