what sort of meaning could be provided by the cannabis? it provides hallucinogenic visions etc, but it is an external substance. Have you ever seen a stoner that wants to get high but they aren't able to obtain weed? They look miserable and they are escapists of the highest order. I live in a country with legal weed, they've had issues with the supply chain but I imagine eventually they will get it ironed out like the liquor industry, you will always be able to get drunk or stoned. But marijuana isn't any more meaningful or significant than alcohol. It's just an external substance that initiates a state.
At the polar opposite of intoxication is super sobriety, you can have visions too but the objective kind. It's a lot harder to obtain and by the way thats the whole point of meditation, to create an ethical platform to scientifically obtain information from these super sober visions that occur to you in the stillness state.
Intoxication also provides visions but the infraconscious, subjective kind. And always the result of some external substance, needing a certain dosage etc, usually costing a lot of money when money is always in short supply these days... is there a God of cannabis? How do you keep a permanent sense of God if that is the case? If you keep a couple of pounds of weed, won't it go stale eventually? Do you have a lifetimes supply of dried, crystallized weed , no matter how much you smoke or "vaporize" (supposedly healthy). Or does your cannabis oil cure cancer? That's what a dishwasher once told me.
Its lunacy. You want something actually in your body, your own consciousness, things you can control. Even when you die and are born again, you are reequiped with the same hardware again. So you have something that can never be taken away from you, that Bodhichitta.... if you are born again in a place that has no weed, like if you are born as an Eskimo, then life has no meaning?
It's a false path . . . . . . . ... . .
