A sure fire indication that the emotional plague is in operation is that you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t. How this applies to the drug problem is that no matter whether or not marijuana is legalized, the decision has destructive consequences. If the drug is not legalized, a huge black market is created with all of it’s potential criminal results. If it is legalized, a message is sent to our youth that there is nothing wrong with it. In the former case, society is functioning in an authoritarian manner and feeding the rebelliousness of our youth. In the latter case, society is functioning in an anti-authoritarian manner and not providing the guidance that young people sorely need.
To add to the confusion, there is no general recognition regarding the highly destructive medical effects of marijuana. In fact, it is this destructiveness that is the very reason that makes it so popular and the drug of choice for many users. All adolescents and young adults who do not have a satisfying heterosexual life are miserable and angry in varying degrees because undischarged sexual energy regularly gives rise to these feelings. This is a clinical fact that is known to all medical orgonomists. Marijuana is highly effective in deadening the emotional life of the users and putting them out of their sexual misery. Evasion of this essential fact keeps the marijuana problem from being rationally and effectively addressed.
