I love the ganj and am well aware of the medical benefits as well as its ability to get you high (duh), but I recently came up with a theory as to why weed is so alluring to so many people. Unlike a lot of drugs out there, weed stimulates every single sense you have without you necessarily having to smoke/ingest it! The beauty of a nice bud for one (SIGHT), that sweet skunky SMELL, the FEELING of sticky resin glands all over your fingers when you break up the bud. Not to mention the TASTE of a nice smooth smoke and the SOUND of a nice fat rip of a bong or bowl. Every single one of these sense-stimulating qualities makes me happy as hell, and the high just seals the deal as far as loving to smoke the herb. Maybe I'm just over-thinking it, but I really believe that whether we're conscious of it or not, every one that partakes probably does so because of this!!! Anyone else feel this way as well?
