Hi my name is jay,
Okay so The problem im facing is that i feel like when i smoke ganja im using it as a drug even though i know that it comes from the earth and i do get insights and perspective from it. But the way i see it is that anything can be a drug for example some people are addicted to gambling even though gambling itself isn't a drug but because of how they treat it, it serves the same purpose as one.
If you ask most people why they smoke or drink or anything its usually because of some hardship in their life. So thats what makes it a drug, the fact that your using it to get away from your life.
So this is the predicament i'm in. I dont want to stop smoking ganja but i feel like im just using it to avoid my problems. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

It's not what you do but HOW and WHY you do it. It's about mindset and perspective.
Some smoke weed to get buzzed. Others partake in the sacrament for meditation purposes.
Ganja will typically highlight or magnify ones state of consciousness. It is the healing of the nation.
I Man makes a good suggestion. Perhaps best to stop smoking it until you overstand it's medicinal and spiritual properties.

As an avid Ganja lover, I havent smoked ganja in over 6 months.....
As stated, the best method is to take an extended break away from it and then re evaluate your use
Remembering ganja come from south asian and middle east areas originally. Ganja has been used within Eastern African culture for up to 2000 years and yet we have no evidence of InI using it for smoking from before the past 1000 years. Meaning the uses stretch far and wide beyond the smoking of such... Also realising smoke consumption in any form is technically not ital and its repeated heavy long term use can cause health problem maybe not from the herb itself but the smoke...Balance

So smoke to be "High" and not te be "Fuck up"
When ya smoke ya'r in perfect serenity n love, you can have an Ilevate Consciousness, when you're in Nature wid some Ganja or, When you listen good music or with friend.
