Poop Doodle - I love Joe and I believe weed should be legal.

BUT, when he says shit like "anyone who has withdrawal symptoms from weed is just a fucking pussy", it makes me question his views on other things as well.
I guess if you're always on it, you would have no idea if there are withdrawal symptoms or not.

Also, statements like 'isolation tanks are better than meditation' and 'you should meditate IN an isolation tank' raise red flags for me. It takes a huge lack of knowledge on meditation to say those things. Meditation and tanks are two completely separate things. He might have a different, more personal and customized definition of meditation, though.

Overall, I feel his heart is in the right place and he does a lot of good for the world. Sometimes that ego can be a pest, though.

I think it's good to question things, especially when the media and government never stop lying to us. People need to wake up before it's too late.

In response to your claims about Rogan not knowing about weed withdrawals, he says all the time on the podcast, "Damn, I'm high as hell, I just took a week off of smoking." So I'm pretty sure he understands the withdrawals which are all mental. Just because he is mentally strong enough to not let the withdrawals effect him doesn't mean he is lying about it.
I think he is lying. Phone Post 3.0

Your post reminded me of this:

"When Milton writes
'Him who disobeys me disobeys '
he is, quite simply, doing wrong to his mother tongue. He meant

'Who disobeys him, disobeys me.'
It is perfectly easy to understand WHY he did it, but his reasons prove that Shakespeare and several dozen other men were better poets. Milton did it because he was chock-a-block with Latin."

Unwariestpickle - 
CRMartin11 - people stop blaming it on the weed. Unless you are prepared to back up your claims with facts you sound really stupid and ignorant.

Here is a study done by Harvard proving heavy marijuana use does not negatively impact one's intelligence and cognition.


http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/2001/10.11/marijuana.html

"On days 0, 1 and 7, current heavy smokers scored significantly lower then the other groups on memory tests."

"heavy marijuana use has found no lasting effects 28 days after quitting"

Ha from the article you posted. When do you think the last time Joe went 28 days without smoking was? Marijuana may have no "lasting" effect but if you smoke it everyday it DOES have an effect.

Yeah, read the study, brah.


"Current marijuana use had a negative effect on global IQ score only in subjects who smoked 5 or more joints per week. A negative effect was not observed among subjects who had previously been heavy users but were no longer using the substance. We conclude that marijuana does not have a long-term negative impact on global intelligence. Whether the absence of a residual marijuana effect would also be evident in more specific cognitive domains such as memory and attention remains to be ascertained."

everyone should question everything IMO



 



 



a very wise man said:



It is ironic that the greatest travesty ever created by man was readable, writable, translatable speech.



...If there were no way for another human to tell you what to do, who to follow, or what to believe, you would then be required to learn everything yourself.  


I don't see us making a whole lot of progress as a species if that were the case. All mathematical and scientific principles are built on knowledge that was discovered previously. Without verbal and written communication we are neanderthals, with every generation needing to reinvent the wheel. But in a sense you are right, there would be less cults.

We work within the developed system or else we'd be collecting fruits and nuts all day to survive. But since that system is not perfect, there is some rebellion, which is natural and useful to continue iterating so that a better system can be approached. (That's obviously a projection, you could argue things just keep stirring aimlessly). Too much rebellion and you reset and get a craphole like modern Somolia, too little and you get stagnation.

This one:

"Pray tell my good man, what has thou in mind?

Is not greater a man who accepts the answer to a question than one who merely asks?"

I don't really think smoking weed for years messes with your head. Phone Post 3.0

Of course it does you can over do anything. Smoke pot everyday for years and it messes with your perception of reality.

Marry J. is a mind expanding drug but it can bring to strange places.
Nah it's not the weed. He was a clown before he started smoking weed, and he's a clown now. Phone Post 3.0

He went from being an unfunny comic (IMO) with a short mans syndrome to a hippy conspiracy theorist/pop science enthusiast.

I like hearing about how Rogan LOVES science. Really dude, didn't you drop out of college after 1 semester? Couldn't pass Chem 001? You mean you like reading pop science articles. Big difference there buddy.
So just because you dropped out of school or failed a class means you can't be intelligent or know about science? That's an uneducated opinion. Some of the smartest people I know never even went to college. It's called Internet, books, TV, and plenty of other resources we have to learn. Phone Post 3.0

Given the nonsense Joe spouts, it is clear he has no real respect for the scientific method.

No, I was agreeing with you, which is why I started with "yeah", but don't let that stand in the way of a good rant. LOL.

I was happy to hear on the most recent podcast that Rogan is reading - well, listening to - Demon Haunted World. Hopefully that gets through to him
