"An escape from reality is achieved with alcohol or hard drugs - or while human beings are religious or sectarian." It reminds me of Karl Marx who said that religion is somekind of opium for the masses.

I wonder if some brilliant ET race bent on destroying our young developing minds developed alcohol and drugs or are we the creators of these deteriorating substances. Once again these substances give a decided advantage to the wicked. Do the traps ever end at weakening the populace at every possible level?

This is probably the most thorough and accurate explanation of the effects of cannabis that I have ever read. I am an ex-user of cannabis, both hash-hish and marijuana. Hash-hish (resin) most of the time though. I was fortunate to resist psychological dependency and never upgraded to heroin or other hard drugs except for LSD (which I have also tried several times in small doses). I've heard some horror stories about LSD though, like having terrifying hallucinations.

I have to work with people who do Hashish, and to say it can be unnerving to be around them because they change their moods and thoughts from hot to cold. Yet they obviously don't perceive there doings as abnormal behavior.

The thing I like most about this article is that Meier never really flat out says to the reader, "Don't use soft drugs!" He simply explains all of the negative side effects, which are very numerous, indeed, and then basically leaves it to the reader to decide what to do. Of course, after one reads all of the negative side effects, I can’t imagine how one would want to start using soft drugs if he or she hasn’t already done so. Hopefully, if one who is already using soft drugs reads this, he or she will make every effort to take the next logical step of quitting.

I was asked to translate the sections on hashish by someone who was once caught up in it and who has now successfully stopped using the drug. This person, like me, hopes that this article will cause users to quit and non-users never to get involved.
