Islam Is Like Smoking Marijuana






In an article I read called "Media Campaign Fact Sheets Marijuana and Mental Health."
(You can read the article at this link: http://www.mediacampaign.org/newsroom/factsheets/marij_mhealth.html)

The reason why I wrote the title (Islam Is Like Smoking Marijuana) is because of the suicidal tendencies both marijuana and Islam can bring to somebody and to a society (ex: the west bank, Gaza strip, you already know).

Here are some of the statistics the article brought to knowledge:

Teens age 12 to 17 who smoke marijuana weekly are three times more likely than non-users to have thoughts about committing suicide.

Some research shows that marijuana use can precede symptoms of depression. Girls (ages 14–15) who used marijuana daily were five times more likely to face depression at age 21. Weekly use among all teens studied doubled the risk for depression.

A study of adults found that marijuana use quadrupled the risk of later major depression.

A study of 1,265 children over a 21-year period found that marijuana use, particularly heavy or regular use, was associated with later increases in depression, suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts.

Past-year marijuana use has been linked to social withdrawal, anxiety, depression, attention problems and thoughts of suicide in adolescents.

Research with twins found that the twin who was dependent on marijuana was almost three times more likely to think about suicide and attempt suicide than his/her non-marijuana dependent co-twin.



Among men suffering from schizophrenia, those who had used marijuana were much more likely to experience their first psychotic episode at an early age.

A recent study found that that the earlier the use of marijuana (age 15 vs. age 18), the greater the risk of schizophrenia.

A study published in 2005 found that regular use of marijuana may double the risk of developing psychotic disorders and that marijuana causes chemical changes to the brain. The study maintains that smoking marijuana causes symptoms even when other factors are taken into consideration.


Also, In an article written by World Net Daily (which can be found at this link: http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=30866)called "Palestinian children 'dream of martyrdom'" a :

A Palestinian psychologist claims that more than half of Palestinian children aged 6 to 11 dream of becoming suicide bombers,

The documentary says Dr. Shafiq Massalha conducted a study that has led him to conclude that "in about 10 years, a very murderous generation will come of age, full of hatred and ready to die in suicide missions," the Israeli National News Service reported.

In the film titled "Seeds of Hate," the narrator says: "In a society in which the legitimization of child murderers becomes a part of its ideology, then normative human morality no longer exists. Which moral rules shall these children pass onto their children when they in turn become parents?"

The scene moves to Arab men yelling and holding up pieces of human organs with a child's loud voice in the background saying, "I will eat the flesh of my conqueror."

The Independent said Massalha, with the assistance of teachers and social workers, distributed notebooks in the spring of 2001 to a random sample of 150 boys and girls aged 10 and 11. The psychologist asked the children to record their dreams every morning for 10 days and to illustrate them.

He found 78 percent of the dreams were political and tended to be physically violent.


"Suicide is a sickness, and [the terrorist leaders] are using it for perverse political ends," he said. "The increasing suicide actions, which receive support and admiration amongst Muslim youth in general and Palestinian youth in particular, have become one of our most dangerous social and psychological phenomena. …"

Do you see the similarities? Do you want your society to become violent and suicidal like it is in the Muslim world? If not then quit this tolerance toward marijuana - which is in my opinion - the worst drug on the list!

Statement without support of evidence is considered a nonsense. Are you trying to attack marijuana users or Islam, or are you just trying to provoke people to fight each other... Think about it for a while...

smoking marijuana makes a man stupid. but what the palestines or Iraqis are teaching their children is not Islam. Islam does not allow the killing of innocent people.

Marijuana numbs the brain, and so does Islam.

Yes I hear marijuana also "influences Negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men's shadows and look at a white woman twice." -Drug Czar
and
"Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men." - Drug Czar

oh wait, are you anti-drug racists not using those ones anymore???

Palestinian preachers teach children to dream of death from an early age, this is not a muslim belief, just like honor killings, it is regional culture.

While marijuana does raise the chance of a psychotic break by 40% in everyday smokers(about 1% of marijuana users) which will have those breaks later in their life even if they don't smoke ever.

ALL OF THE OTHER THINGS YOU MENTIONED INCLUDING DEPRESSION AND SUICIDAL THOUGHTS ARE TREATED WITH MARIJUANA not caused by it...

Though if you get arrested for one joint and sent to prison, that might cause depression...

If your financial aid is taken away that might cause depression...

If you are suffering from hellish pain and police take away the only safe and working pain medication that may cause depression...

IF you are one of the millions who starve to death every year because HEMP the fastest growing and most nutritious food crop on the planet is illegal, that might cause depression...

man, ur pretty ignorant, dumb, and racist. Islam is just as peaceful as Christianity or other religions. the people here who endorse violence are just like the Christians in the Crusades and whatnot. Violence and War have been with humanity since the beginning of time. You cannot compare a religion and its violence. Long time ago, war was common, and it even refered to in the Bible, the Quaran, and other ancient books. Radical Islam is the belief that makes every other peaceful muslim seem like a suicidal maniac. Also, the only reason radical Islam exists (most likely) is because they have been oppressed for centuries.

This is one of the most ignorant websites I have come across this year. It's a typical illustration of how the US claims their sovereign right to freedom of speech yet it's nation is completely brain-washed..so whatever most Americans wish to say, tends to be what the government wants them to say, like how bad Islam is.
If this website had a clearer and less biased view then I would respect it more and actually consider what the author wrote.

Dear The Odor of Shoe & Bat,
Your article is as much bad as your name smells, I don't expect an ignorant like you to understand the nature of suffering that palastinians and Iraqies have to take everyday beacause of the Israeli & American occupation of their homeland, since your are a bourgeoisie who spends most of the time blogging online with no care for human right's violated by your country in guantanamo prison and by supporting an offensive and bloody state like israel.
it's by the international law, that all people under occupation have the right to fight for their freedom and this is what palastinians and iraqis are doing.
And by the way, what islam really teaches the believers, is how to be righteous and fight and die in honor. And the suicider missions are only committed because there is no other way to fight back, since the defenseless palestinians are left alone infront of the huge israeli military weaponry.

our obviously a nonreliable source because you compare weed to islam

Anonymous said...

Wow, you're dumber than a sack of hammers.

1) Pot users aren't suicidal. In fact pot is used to treat depression.

2) Only Indica's "numb" your brain. Sativa's actually give you an up feeling and make you very productive. Or so I've heard.

3) All religions, not just Islam, are billions of times more dangerous than pot, we should out law THEM.

A mind is a lot like a light bulb. It only works when you turn it on.

Chantix is a very useful drug which helps you in many ways to quit smoking. Firstly, if you have chantix online it helps to reduce the cravings or urges for nicotine which makes you moves towards smoking. Also if you have chantix it helps you to withdraw away form the symptoms of smoking and nullifies all the pleasures associated with smoking. http://www.chantixhome.com/

who ever wrote this article is a cock sucking piece of shit.That was the most ignorant thing i've ever heard in my lifetime. who ever wrote this, ill let you know, I'm not a muslim myself but i looked into Islam before, its a religion of peace and morals. And just because some idiots like osama think they are doing things and terrorizing doesnt mean that they are all like that. And who ever agrees with this is just as bad as the guy who wrote this. Get ur heads out of your asses and stop being ignorant you fucks.

hey who ever is the bitch who wrote this , you are both ignorant,stupid , and a moron.
1st of all how can you compare a substance to a religion wtf?
2nd of all islam s a pretty peaceful religion and your a racist bastard
3rd of all marijuana can be used for madical purposes too like treating cancer and other diseases

Anonymous said...

it is against the rules of islam to kill or harm any other being. islam is a peaceful religion. crazy extremists use the religion for violence. most muslims around the world are peaceful ppl.

Anonymous said...

you are so retarded smoking weed has nothing to do with islam and check your facts because suicide is unlawful in islam and so is the killing of innocent people - so these people that you associate with islam or not even muslims - and anyways i have never heard of anyone being depressed because of weed

Anonymous said...

Seriously? Who the fuck wrote this garbage? I feel bad for you, it must be hard living as an ignorant asshead...I also feel bad for the people around you have heard this shit possibly streaming out of your mouth. Relay this information to the general public and I'm sure you'd get your ass kicked.

And congrats, you managed to be discriminatory and ignorant at the same time! Do some research before you insult a religion, yes it has its flaws, but find a religion that doesn't. And please, you obviously don't know shit about Mary Jane. Find some sources about suicide DIRECTLY linked to weed. You can't, sucka.

I guess you could say that marijuana is like islam becayse they r both gods creation , they both bring u closer to GOD

You America anti-Muslims sure crack me up. It's so funny how you'll rave on and on about something you have no knowledge about. A hundred years ago you foolish patriots were telling your children the Bible justified the enslavement of Black people, and look at the progress you've made...oh wait...you haven't made any progress! You're still a bucnh of ignorant, uneducated, violent racists.
Muslims are violent? What about America? Doesn't the constitution justify the posession of weapons by civillians. But we're the violent ones, right?

The same way all white people cannot be judged by the actions of George Bush, all Muslims cannot be judged by the actions of the psychologically tormented Palestinian people. The author of this article shows such a narrow-minded, snotty, arrogant point of view towards issues surrounding our society that I'm not surprised we've been so unsuccessful in resolving these issues. The author, along with many other ignorant, blind men over the world, believe they know about everthing happening outside of that little box they live in. If their minds werent as closed as they are now, they would finally come to realize that the religion of Islam strongly supports peace with a system of unbiased justice. That means that Islam supports the death penalty for atrocious crimes, instead of making excuses to justify the act of a convicted criminal. At the same time, what people must eventually come to realize, is that Islam strongly opposes suicide, and the killings of innocent people. There is no such thing as a Muslim terrorist. That is contradictory to the meaning of being a Muslim. If this war is against terrorists, then everybody has the same common enemy. Yet still I am pessimistic that any of these issues will be solved, as long as there are such conceited, prejudiced people that compare a religion they know absolutely nothing about (other than what the news manipulates for them) to a harmful drug with very little benefit. Marijuana is a drug. Islam is a religion, a way of life. Two things that are only compared by people with media-fabricated minds. "Islam is like smoking marijuana". Yeah, and I'm sure that the only acceptable human being is wealthy, from wealthy and patriotic perfect parents, with blue eyes and blonde hair, in a wealthy neighborhood full of people with blue eyes and blonde hair, who drive expensive cars, live in wealthy houses, and believe everything they hear. Writing political arguments and publishing medical research is certainly something beyond the capability of people with such juveline reasoning skills. Open up that closed-minded head and use it, read a book or something; but until somebody can put up a real argument when they insult any religion, with real comparisons and real support, their weak attempts at speaking intelligently fail miserably and appear pathetic. I hope this wasn't too much for some people, since it requires you to think and read, both at the same time. Good luck and goodbye.

I read your first 2 lines, not even reaching any of ur bollocs about Islam, and I wish I could make a judgment.
Both marijuana and Islam is HOLY. Marijuana is HOLY (from my point of view), I am a beginner believer in Islam, but I do smoke marijuana.
Well, lemme tell u this!!! U drink too much alcohol and I KNOW it!!
I am from Russia (we have the highest rate of suicide) and most people commit suicide here as a result of being drunk (at that particular point in time), but they drink because they think their life is shit.

If they were smoking marijuana they would be fulfilled with spiritual awakening, positive vibration and start to promote PEACE, like Rastafarians do.

Islam is the most fare religion and, using my common sense, there is NO nonsense written in the Holy Quran, even though I haven't fully read it. I'll go through people's comments tomorrow and might read the rest of your "holy teachings" just to make sure that your "unique" point of view is worthless, while u r thinking u r the most clever guy in the World. Get a life. Show some respect to your creator, even though I wouldn't thank him for your creation.

Marijuana doesn't numb brain. People numb their brain and ALCOHOL and other strong drugs help u do that

this article is horrible (learn how to write a well written argument so people will listen to you)

- absolutely one-sided (acknowledge the counter argument)
- poorly written and disorganized
- lack of data to support statements
- a little racist and intolerant
- misleading

I don't smoke pot or practice islam ... a completely unbiased reader.
