Merits of Marijuana?
But I understand why the folks in Santacruz are sorta obsessed with it.
Buddy of mine bought a 10 acre piece of land in Santacruz and discovered it rampant with marijuana bushes...could have paid for the price ticket of the lot?
Here are some merits as espoused by the article below - there are talks of legalization in California, and I think may be a step in the right direction.
Definitely worth a try! Read on....
Marijuana is said to stimulate the dopamine pathway from the ventral tegmental area to the nucleus accumbens, playing a key role in controlling emotions, laughter etc…
There are a diverse array of documented adverse effects of using marijuana which may range from unexpected behavioral changes, altered social relationships to decreased coordination, cardiovascular and cognitive function and the active ingredient in Marijuana, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, has been reported to accumulate in brain and testicular tissues. However, its judicial use can make it an excellent natural product with high medicinal and commercial value as various studies indicate that marijuana has some significant medicinal properties. It has antispasmodic, anticonvulsant and antiemetic activities and is thus valuable in glaucoma treatment, tremor reduction, alleviating nausea and treating severe weight loss associated with AIDS or chemotherapy in cancer patients. There are some reports suggesting that Marijuana relieves spasticity produced by multiple sclerosis (MS) and partial spinal cord injury but nothing conclusive is known so far! There is very little information about its therapeutic value in epilepsy and certain neurological disorders.
Marijuana is also one the most natural raw materials with high industrial value. It is used for making paper, clothing and also in the food industry. Hemp paper is of highest quality papers and before prohibition laws, it was frequently used for making money and some of the finest books, for instance, the Gutenberg Bible and the old dollar bills were made of hemp paper! Hemp seeds can also be pressed to obtain vegetable oil which is rich in some amino acids!

Welcome to the spirituality blog
This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
