It is said that creativity is at its best when one is high. Those who smoke cannabis swear by the fact that it melts the mind in such a manner that one is able to think deeper and clearer thus paving a way for self-revelation.
“Herb Is the Healing of a Nation, Alcohol Is the Destruction.”
Those who are against marijuana advocate that it is destructing the nation by taking the youth along the wrong path. But, Bob always felt that marijuana heals the nation by bringing people together. It helps in relieving their pains, easing their tensions and thus making them relaxed and happy. If you see the data also, you will find that it’s alcohol that causes more accidents and deaths and not cannabis.
“Herb is More a Consciousness. Music and Herb Go Together.”
Bob always believed that cannabis is more about enhancing consciousness, thereby bringing out the best in you. It is true also because when you are high you can understand yourself, your skills and your desires better, which helps in creating things that you could never do otherwise.
