The Real Truth: MarijuanaThe Real Truth: Why People Smoke MarijuanaThe Real Truth: Marijuana9 years ago in Editorial More Like This
If someone ever tells you they smoke because they "just enjoy the act of smoking", or really, anything else. They're lying.
The reason people smoke marijuana is because after you smoke you can sit down to a song and it takes you. That song is the only thing in the world. All of your attention and analysis is focused on something that seems to be playing just for you.
Sure, anyone could love something that much sober, but that would take a lot of effort. With marijuana, it's natural. Patience is freely given to you.
People smoke weed because, honestly, it takes real effort to be that human sometimes.
MarijuanaMarijuana, pot, weed, grass, mary-jane, ganja, reefer, chronic, bud . . . One plant, many names. I believe we all know what pot is and have tried or know someone that has tried it. Marijuana and its legalization has been argued about for many years. Some opponents view the drug as a weedy Satan while others recognize it as a beneficial herb; marijuana should be legalized.Marijuana10 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

come in contact with each others skin
because your body is a star, a moon, a planet,
and mine paper, a rock, scissors.
We are to connect at haphazard intervals
within calendars, diaries, photographs
(within our eyes, hair, and arms at matching tunes)
but never fuse undyingly
because your kiss is the sea
and my kiss is an island.
We can forget meeting in the middle
because your heart will leave a trail to the right
and my hands will be left with the blood.
We can disregard infinity knocking at our doors
because you are a broken clock,
and I am sleeping in.

Without seeing how I feel about you
I'm panicking and dying inside
Everytime I looked into your deep blue contact-covered eyes
I want to tell you that I'd sign away my soul for you
I want you to know that I want to tell you I love you
I want you to know that I'm yours but I'm too afraid to let you know
I can't take not being around you
I want to feel your touch
I don't think I can ever be happy again if I never see you again
Just let me know please
If you feel the same way too or
If I'll have to be without you for the rest of my rainy days
I want you to know that I'm your superhero, your knight in shining armor and that
I'd fight for you
I want you to know that I'll never be just your friend
I'm more than a boy who wants to hold your hand
You hold the key to my hear
Please don't ever let it go

What I give to you, is the utmost
perfection of my creating...
A master piece...
to a couple, between them, in love...
As it was the Will of our Father,
So was it done with joy and fore thought...
Know that I found genuine pleasure in molding
such felling... betwixt you both...
Prayers to you now,
for you shall know both tests and blessings...
You shall know the ways of ecstasy & excitement,
Yet others of your species shall envy you,
they shall lust after you, and attempt
at tearing you apart...
Know that we are watching, and
we will show no bounds to protecting you!
Tis my gift that you both share together.
Love one another for eternity...
as there is no end to time.
Savor what is had whilst it is had...
Take oath and vow to each others being,
love as you want to be loved,
Treat as you want to be treated...
Hold fast, and love one another...forever

Immortal is my devotion.
Unbreakable is our bond.
Driven is my emotion.
A love of which I am fond.
You are never alone,
As witness is your God,
to all that is and is not known,
from there with you and abroad.
Love undying is the compassion I hold,
as invincible as the forces of Heaven,
is this love so incredibly bold,
to my own, and beautiful leaven.
Never shall you know agony through me,
Though I am yet imperfect,
It is my intention to set you free,
and your heart shall never go unchecked.
Undying is the love held for you,
by my heart, my soul, my mind, my all,
As spirited goes the love ou two,
My being is that which you do entrall.

Drain my heart into words
Say I love you in ways
That youve never heard
I could spend hours just listing
Off all of your charms
Describing how I ache
To be in your arms
But nothing would matter
Nothing would change
Im here and your there
And we cant rearrange
Our lives, theyre planted
Firm in these grounds
I can want and wish
But theres no way around
The distance, it maims me
More than youll know
So much love inside
Ive been dying to show
You, youre my muse
You bring me to life
Yet youre also the reason
I feel like Ive died,
Inside, I am screaming
Calling your name
Longing to hear
Your heart do the same
See, my heart is beating
Threatening to jump out
And find its home
With you, I want to be
Safe and embraced
A comfortable place
A shelter, a haven
Where true love can grow
But this is a place
I will not know
So Ill just write pages and
Legalization of marijuanaLegalization of marijuana12 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Marijuana was first federally prohibited in 1937. Today, more than 83 million Americans admit to having tried it, that makes 83 million criminals out government believes should be put away. We are making criminals out of people that do not deserve to be punished. Possessors of marijuana are jailed with the same people as rapists and murders. The facts that the government is spending too much money on fighting this "Drug War" when they could be making money off taxing the drug itself, has been done to death, so instead let us look at the facts of marijuana use. First of all we have the claim that Marijuana is a "Gateway drug" and therefore can lead to harder more dangerous drugs, but this is not the case at all. The Institute of Medicine's 1999 report on marijuana explained that marijuana has been mistaken for a gateway drug in the past because "Patterns in progression of drug use from adolescence to adulthood are strikingly regular

confuse and astound me
the only way to get my addict's fix
first I'm high on a hill
first a thrill, then a chill
as she turns her back on my needy lips
it kills me to say this
but I need her to break this
I can't kill this addiction, the source of my bliss
I'm slowly falling apart
her drug is leaving my heart
breathing under withdrawal is like breaking my ribs
she's my favorite pain
molten needles in my veins
withdrawing from my flesh, blood runs from the tip
'cause she's so...
my hypnotic narcotic
I can't get enough of her marijuana kiss

Your memory carried me through countless nights
Nothing more than a glorified incubus
Your serpent words wrapping there way around my heart
We both need to move on, fellow lost soul,
The coming dawn waits for no one.
I'm only your princess when no one else is looking
A pet trained to come when your lonely.
I can't wait forever for you to make up your mind
The fading night leaves everyone behind.
I would have been your everything if I only had a chance
But we are young and your heart wanders while I look on
My wounds heal, your poison drains away leaving a clear mind
With my face to the rising sun, I am born.
It is your turn to wake up Lord of dreams and wishes
My hands once reached out to you, craving the feel of your skin
Bitter reality waits to greet you as I walk away with few glances back
The moon sets and a young girl dies.
Hours spent missing what never was is a heavy burden
My shoulders feel free once again and I pray you find the same peace

Come in, come in...
Why go back home, why turn around?
The forest calls.. Can’t you hear the sound?
Come in, come in...
There is nothing to lose, and everything to win;
for this, this is not like anywhere you've ever been.
Here the trees twist, the branches twine
the twigs crack, the leaves rustle.
You won't get far, not moving a muscle.
Don't be afraid...
You could always stay
just till darkness falls?
Move.. come on, the forest calls!
Go on, and don't look back
Just follow the track, step by step.
No need to bring water, no need to bring bread

Flitting heartbeat, sparrow high,
twisting round the mountain's eye,
tracing breath of shattered skies
and filling velvet palms.
Falling sparrow, cry of stone,
wings of mist and powder bone
sipping, slipping from thy throne
within their crimson throng.
Treading now, beneath the clouds
As what was once so heaven bound
now falling, falling, to the ground
And singing silent songs.
Fly no more, above the arcs
singing side thy fellow Larks
curl beneath their shadows dark
and sing your silent songs.
Your flitting heartbeat, Sparrow high,
now sings of silent songs.

"I've cleared his mind. He has to wake up on his own." M'gann informed him. "He'll be fine."
"You guys still up? You know, my ma always told me that a watched kettle never boils. Standing over him like that isn't going to wake him up any faster." Clark told them.
"He's right. We should really head to bed too. Roy will probably be awake in the morning." Robin said. "God, I hate sleeping here."

You got ready for your crappy job at a local coffee shop just a few blocks away from your apartment. You didn't mind working there it was just your boss was a huge pervert. You put on your french maids uniform and walked out the door. You got in your car and tried to start it yet it wouldn't turn on. You groaned this is the 5th time this month your car wouldn't start. You started walking the two blocks to your job. You softly hummed a song in your head as you walked.
