Marijuana is Dumb (The Unpopular Opinion)

Marijuana is Dumb (The Unpopular Opinion)

This article has nothing to with the topic, “is marijuana bad for good for you” or if it should be legal or if it should continue as a help in the medical world. It has nothing to do with how bad or how good it is for you or how fun it can be. It also has nothing to do with how it could relieve stress. It leans toward why it is pointless.

You know, marijuana does some good and some bad but it’s absolutely pointless to use recreationally. Hopefully, you haven’t fallen into this habit already because it will be hard to overcome but for those of you who haven’t used weed, this is why you still shouldn’t.

Focus on Yourself

You can smoke alone or with a group of friends and it’ll probably be the highlight of your day but while you’re escaping reality and forgetting your problems other people ate facing theirs. In your community alone there are robberies and murders that could’ve been prevented if you were alert and aware.

Waste of Time

Time is important. You don’t know when it’ll run out. So while you believe you’re  using your time wisely you’re not. Time is passing by and shortly you have children and responsibilities pile up and it’s almost too late to catch up. Don’t waste time. Time is money

No Money

At Tru.Works we believe everyone should be successful and so one of the biggest topics you’ll read about is how everyone can be rich and needs to work for it. If you’re busy smoking and having time pass by you aren’t working. Do you know how much effort and time you need to put in to be a millionaire? One 8 to 5 job isn’t going to cut it unless you’re making at least $125,000 salary? For those of you who aren’t, you’re  behind. Don’t tell me you don’t want to be rich because we all do.

Using marijuana for fun keeps us away from the big picture. We all need to be prepared for whatever happens. We should not be depending on the government at all. In this world. The only way to be prepared is to be free to make any decision we want to without lack of money holding us back. You can’t depend on anyone or any substance to be free. To be free is to have no debt and have enough money to do whatever you please.

Weed has you focused on yourself and lose track of your time and money. You may think you’re working enough but you aren’t. If you aren’t you are at high risk for anything (good or bad) to happen to you.
