I love to draw and paint, and I've never tried marijuana. But I had a friend I liked to paint with who tried it several times...We did a series together of paintings that either he or I would start and the other would finish. Interestingly enough, we were doing an oil on canvas while he was high and it was the only painting, that we made, that anyone had ever wanted to buy. You can interpret that anyway you want...but I've since decided to not smoke mj, mainly for artistic reasons. Doesn't make a lot of sense, I know, but I liked the paintings we did when he wasn't high, even tho no body else does...... <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: -->

And as for my perception of illegal drugs, I haven't really decided what I think. I mean, my idea of them is constantly is changing...especially marijuana.... For instance, I used to think anything marijuana was just unhealthy, then, just recently, they came out with a marijuana-based prescription drug that treats diabetes. But, being raised in Hawaii, I used to see a lot of drug and alcohol abuse and I've had friends who have tried marijuana and they had some bad experiences, others decided marijuana was the best thing that ever happened to them. I also had a friend who was strung out on LSD a lot and she was a great person even when she was hallucinating, and she never one hurt her self....I've heard of a lot less lucky people who have tried LSD too. I guss what I'm trying to say is my views on illegal drugs change depending on the perosn using them, since the how people react to drugs change from indiviual to individual.... view post
