Do Not Do Drugs! But……..
There is a but and there a is reason for that
Not too long ago, I was feeling a little under the weather, it started with a little cold, and then stomach ache, and by day three I had lost all appetite for food, had a headache that made me feel like my head was going to explode and couldn’t sleep a wink at night. Everybody around me started offering solutions to my problems, malaria drugs, multivitamins, paracetamol for the headache and what not, you name it, I took them all, but as soon as it went down, it came right back up.
Enter superman, in the form of my younger brother who made a passing comment that sounded stupid at the time but probably saved my life. ‘You Should Smoke Some Weed’ He said
‘Stop talking Rubbish before I slap you!. That was my mom with the traditional African discipline.
Thank God he didn’t stop talking rubbish, instead he insisted and fortunately for me, my dad backed him up. I do not know why my very responsible, mature adult parent, and his equally very responsible not so mature adult son happened to have some weed just lying around the house. I mean I don’t know if they had it lying around the house, maybe they bought it from the neighbourhood corner store, I don’t know, but they came back with a wrap, put it in water and boiled it, filtered it out and gave me half a glass of what I like to call the herbal tea.
My last comprehensible statement and thought was ‘this is not going to work’. That was on Thursday evening. I woke up at about 08:00am on Friday, still thinking it was Thursday feeling ravenously hungry, I ate and waited for the food to come back up, I’m still waiting, and my headache? Long, long forgotten. Marijuana saved me!
If you were wondering, then let me be the first to tell you that I don’t know what the moral of this little story is, I just find it awesome that my dad still smokes weed at his age, my 90 year old grandma is not doing a good job parenting that son of hers, and now he has gone on to influence my own mother’s son!
Seriously though, marijuana should be made a legal substance all around the world, I mean, that stuff is amazing, it cured insomnia, cold, head ache, and two different types of eating disorders in half a glass.
Here’s hoping I made a case for all the weed heads all around the world.
