Yeah he says that but he says it about all drugs- even aspirin. He says this is what all drugs do - all pain relievers, prescription drugs, street drugs etc. Scientologists see all drugs as exactly the same (kind of ironic, when in Scientology the equation A=A is supposed to be a negative). I confirmed this weird idea they have about drugs just recently with a current scino. This person actually thought that aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and narcotic pain killers etc. were all chemically identical. Not that this person really cared that they aren't. They are looking at it from a perspective of these drugs accomplishing a function in a mind, as explained by Hubbard. Outside of that context, their ideas are very ignorant. This just goes to show how confused, misinformed and misguided Scientology indoctrination can make a person.SeeYaBye wrote:Correct me if I'm wrong (it's been 20+ years since I was "in")... but if memory serves me correctly, LRH said that the problem with marijuana usage was that it "scrambled" a person's mental images, so instead of a nice orderly file cabinet of your whole track that could be dealt with in an auditing session in a nice orderly fashion, everything would end up in a rather mixed up shambles so far as a person's nicely time-ordered history of mental images, making it very difficult to audit an individual.
There has been little research on Cannabis (unfortunately) due to its having been condemned by the authorities. Now that we have a few years of data (and growing), its effects/benefits can finally be openly analysed, and the data will expand.
