This thread is not for marijuana lovers who are not actively involved in any spiritual discipline, but rather for those interested in achieving spiritual discipline: What I am revealing now many people already know: it is that though marijuana creates an alkaline vacuum thus strengthening the spirit; the vacuum inverts and leaves the smoker in acidosis. In this state of acidosis considerable strain is placed on the mid-spinal. After smoking marijuana spiritually for years, and smoking marijuana when I do yoga and meditate for sure, I am now finally involved in some intense kundalini training. The more intense the training gets the more acutely aware I become of my patheticly weak mid-spinal. This part of the spine is associated with the lungs. In the kundalini yoga work I do all who smoked lots and lots of marijuana in short periods of time experienced the same thing and we are achieving the ascendent and spiritual alkaline state, losing our desire to smoke marijuana, and reaching profoundly expansive levels of awareness.
