There are a number of states that have voting initiatives to legalize “recreational” use of marijuana. It seems this may be symptomatic of several problems in the country. Medical use has been around for awhile with mixed results. Prohibition didn’t work too well for alcohol and I’m not sure that it is working so well for a drug like marijuana. However, the extreme self-pleasuring of our culture is making us dumb. My dad always said, “Everything in moderation.” I’m not sure he meant the use of mind altering substances. I have looked into the eyes of people who have used for a long time. The results are generally not good. The work force is negatively affected – it is less ambitious, less alert, and less aware when it chooses self-pleasure over the common good. Historically, that is part of what causes cultures to fail and fall.

What do we do? Well the real question is: What do I do? Take responsibility for your health and well being. Take responsibility for you caring about others in such a way that you show what you are made of. Take responsibility for being a positive influence on people around you and your community. There are plenty of people who hate, attack, self-promote, bully, are self-absorbed, gossip, and self-righteously think that they are always right. There are plenty of people who will escape with their drug of choice. Remember – Love Wins. Positivity comes from knowing positively who your Creator is and how much your Creator cares about you.

You can choose to live focusing on negative, ill tempered, self-righteous, self-absorbed people or you can ignore them and be positive with those who are open, willing, and interested in making a difference. Remember Zig Ziglar’s reminder, “Little thinkers are big stinkers.” Not a profound thought but real.

Philippians 4:8 “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”
