Why Youths Take Marijuana – the basic truth
by Temi Badmus
Sex is power, no man dares stop when the rhythm has been set into motion. Drugs is affluence, a non negotiatiable drive once commenced. Whether it’s sex or drugs, we definitely have a name for it in our era… We call it strafing ( the act of moving from one realm of bitterness to a realm whose bitterness is higher but the feeling is void).
With the high demand rate for marijuana by youths, one would almost find himself having the desire to do same, forgeting that this product is not of good health benefits when taken with no prescription, very hazardous substance. The major movement against taking marijuana in Nigeria as far as I know is over 15 years now, the government even made it a compulsory topic in secondary schools and a course at tertiary level, yet, the demand has tripled over years and has become normal that even the government has ignored it for codeine.
Youths from across the world actually do have good reasons for taking these drugs, you derive a lot of things from taking marijuana and why they value it via the list below (it must be noted that this has become a normal business across the world, including Nigeria. There is this 40 per cent chance that it’s your best friend’s means of livelihood).
The reality drift
Fun – food
The Drift from Reality.
I think you must have one way or the other learnt about this – in school, around or away from our hood. If you have never come across or experienced this yourself, well I am here writing that it is very true. You can’t be sober or sad after taking marijuana. It takes you to a whole new level of excitement, you see your problems drifting away, you see yourself so relaxed and on top of the world. You are not afraid of spirits, not think of man. I tell you for free, you can challenge sango (the god of thunder) once you are high on marijuana.
…it takes you away from reality.
Since what goes up must surely come down and what has good effect will certainly come with some bad effects either little or huge. Marijuana stimulates the body, that is, increasing the physiological or nervous activities in your body as well as depressant, that is reducing those highness. The later is much more an advantage for doctors than youths. But just so you know, youths who have sleepless night, who want to have sex without argument, who just want get into extinction or a noiseless moment take marijuana. Youths who do not have desire for sex may consider taking marijuana to stimulate this sexual desire, that is like spicing up their sexual ability, since the inception of tramadol has been stood against.
I cannot roll into this topic without discussing peer pressure.
Peer Pressure always leads to curiosity and curiosity leads to “Stop taking”, “Continue Taking” or “Madness”. Lol! That last one is a shocker but that’s not my topic nah. Yes, people get mad on their first smoke trial and some people never again till they die, while some become addicted and others occasionally.
Back to the point, peer pressure comes to play when youths try to impress their boyfriends (boys to boys) but it’s worse and almost a must when your girlfriend (boy to girl) smokes. You will not just want to smoke or impress, you will want to prove you are better than her, and ow! These are the ones that usually lead to madness, the “overdo factor”. Curiosity of what it tastes like, the comparison with SK, Switch and other products also come to play. Then the ability to take more than the normal dosage your peer group is taking to see how far you can go.
And curiosity of course they say kills the cat.
For the fun of it, in parties and just regular gatherings, marijuana becomes fun when used to make food, rice, okra soup, pepper soup, sprinkled on barbeque and so on , this goes a long way in increasing excitement. It is only bad when you are not aware or aware and cannot handle it, another way to madness which may of course add some tips to the party.
It doesn’t end with food, drinks too get the mixture. Try that blend with Remmy Martins.
Nothing makes a boy or girl look sexy like marijuana. And nothing soft like marijuana makes a boy or girl fu*k for almost or over 1hr without getting tired or worst of all cum. The bad side of this is rape, battering when you say no and unplanned pregnancy.
So basically marijuana is helping youths achieve things but definitely in the wrong way.
