The Marijuana Smokers - Chapter 5
burdened (or blessed, depending on one's point of view) with the responsibility of
protecting the well-being of society at large, and therefore are under a pressure to act in a
manner that society defines as responsible and mature. The physician knows that when he
speaks, many listen. His favored position disinclines him to a radical direction.1 His
prestige and power are a mixed blessing, because whatever he says will be taken
seriously. He is highly visible, and he is expected to make sober and responsible
pronouncements. The physician and the intellectual, although equally well educated,
informed, and occupying roughly the same social class position, differ markedly in their
accountability to a constituency, and thus usually differ radically on crucial issues. The
question, therefore, becomes not so much: "What is the opinion of the medical profession,
trained in the scientific technique and objective about anything affecting the human body,
on the dangers of this drug, marijuana?" It is, rather: "What sorts of responses toward
marijuana use might be expected from a group of individuals who are highly respected
and affluent members of their community, geared to social functions of a distinctly
protective nature, and responsible to a public?" I would predict that the responses of
doctors regarding marijuana use would not be much different from individuals in positions
much like theirs: bankers, politicians, attorneys, executives, judges. Their attitudes, I
maintain, stem less from their medical knowledge than from their social position in
The position of medical men is a conservative posture, if we understand that as having
the implication of "conserving" the status quo—protecting society from any possible
danger. The basic thrust of such a position is that any substance has potential dangers that
have to be thoroughly examined before it can be released to the unsuspecting public. It is
far better, this line of reasoning goes, to restrict access to an innocuous drug than to permit
access to one which is truly dangerous. The parallel between marijuana and
thalidomide—inadequately tested and prematurely marketed—is obvious and sobering.
The physician's stance, then, is paternalistic; certain decisions have to be made for the
public, who, without expertise, cannot possibly decide on the danger or safety of a drug,
unaided by those whose responsibility it is to perform that very task. As Henry Brill,
physician, professor of medicine and hospital director, wrote: "All drugs are guilty until
A guiding principle in this analysis is the specialness of the physician's orientation
toward marijuana and its use.3 I intend "specialness" to bear two distinct but interrelated
meanings. First, that physicians' attitudes toward marijuana, as with everyone else, are
largely "nonrational," not simply untrue or false in a scientific sense, but that the
Aroma: Kind of a slight skunky smell on the sweet side. Nothing offensive nothing overpowering, but fairly
strong. Double bag when carrying stink without doubt.
Buzz Well above average. Ah what the heck.
This chit is nice.
Semi couch-lock with a kick is the best I can do. Not couch lock but could be, not sativa intense but it has an
edge plus it creeps up on ya. You get a buzz and feel like that’s it, next thing ya know. You’re not grinning
you’re smiling 61514 At this early age the buzz is in the same class as the older plants in the stable Top 44
and NL x Shiva. Imagination knows how the buzz will be when the plants are older.
The oddball - 10 û with the superior buzz has more of an edge and leans towards a sativa side more than the
other two. The weed already has a nickname- Sunshine Weed; the buzz is better in the sun. I guess it’s
because the edge is taken off some with the sun beating on ya bean and it all works out to a good thing, very
good. Can’t be explained you’ll have to do it.
One last note.
This weed rings some bells from days gone by?
