I don't think Sadhguru is really "criticizing" weed. We need to contestualize the answer he is giving, in the first place the way the KID formuled his question, and in the second place in our modern society. The kid use words such as "medical cannabis", like to justify the use of mariuana in this way. But Sadughuru, very intelligently answers that medicines are for those who are ill. Maybe if the kid was asking about marijuana as a tool for spiritual practice, as a shortcut, as a ritual plant, he would have given another answer. In any case, the answer sadhguru is giving also is related with a society based on consumerism, on the division of work. In this society, if you do mistakes you can harm someone elses. Considering that weed alters your consciousness, and every stoner would be a liar to say that it doesn't affect your decision making process: it makes you more lazy, you're less focused. This are effects which only a strong person don't have. But the most of the people who consume weed have negative effects from it, and consume it for RECREATION, not for a spiritual purpose. Considered that we consume weed just to get high, and not considering that is a sacred plant, the answer sadhguru gives can only be negative. Consider that he don't even talks about of indian SADHUS which use weed as a sacred plant. This is why they know how to use it, and they aren't going to do a surgery, which need concentration. This isn't a critics against weed. Is just the thruth, that if you have to be EFFICIENT in a society based on work, weed isn't helpin. Of course, as I said, for ritual is useful BUT, unneccessary. A true YOGI produces all his drugs in his brain. He doesn't depend from anything. He is self-sufficient. In fact, the end of yoga is not to be attached to anything. If you are attached to weed you aren't a true yogi.
I disagree with what he says. There is new research showing that cannabis can slow /judgment/ time but does not slow /reaction/ time. If my surgeon has ADHD, I would want him to smoke or take oil before operating on me.
Even people who use it recreationally are seeking DEtoxification not intoxication. That is the nature of the cannabis plant. Sadhguru would do well to research the endocannabinoid system.
Cannabis has never been linked to permanent brain damage. The use of alcohol in excess and hard stimulants in excess, has been connected to permanent brain damage.
Hard to tell when someone says this if they're just underinformed or intentionally misleading. Either way, Sadhguru helped me learn that gurus are just humans like everyone else. They are only our leaders if we choose them, not because they've reached enlightenment.
First off, I don't smoke and don't enjoy it. The issue is government and their strangle hold on every aspect of peoples lives. Somehow smoking in privacy has no ill effect on me. So for it to be illegal is absurd. I'd wager that the majority of laws are similar victimless crime laws. Who has time to read through them all though. Lawyers don't even know all the laws and cops especially don't. It's a bog of bureaucracy that is intentionally designed to be overly complicated. The harm of governments far outweighs any benefit. When government just leaves people alone, they will regulate themselves as they see fit.
Legal weed shops operate in a similar fashion to coffee shops now (Coffee another drug that's addictive, profitable and carries withdraw symptoms) and their aren't stoners roaming the streets committing crime. Which was propaganda used when they sought to criminalize it.
His argument is extremely biased and illogical. He'll consume cobra venom but he will vilify marijuana, this is such a hypocritical position. He mentions that he doesn't want his surgeon or lawyer to smoke weed, but yet they are very likely to have been intoxicated by alcohol. Alcohol is far more destructive and can affect the nervous system in much more damaging ways.
Weed is more better than alcohol.... In most of the country accident occurred due toh the consumption of alcohol....i've smoke weed for more than 3 years and whenever i was in high i never got accident😂😂
Sorry no offence to Sadhguru , but his view id quite narrow when it comes to marijuana.it is the most magical plant.It is a source of fibre, finest quality paper and clothes can produced, source of oil & high quality vegan protein without getting high.Can Sadhguru treat a Cancer patient.cannabis oil can. At least the patients should get it.Henry ford even made a car out of hempcrete before it was illegal.its not about getting high all the time.There will always be some fools who will abuse anything and everything.You can't make a such useful naturally occurring plant illegal due to some fools.people are anyways using it.atleast one can choose what is good for them under a regulated environment.Minors will not be able to buy from a legal shop.But street dealer will give him anything to get profit & if some one is comparing cannabis to cocaine or opium ,then I am really sorry.you just need some education
The whole Indian philosophy strengthen the Idea that let you master is your self, reach to the limits of you inner mind stimuli to drive your brain , but when we are on drugs, they work as a external mind stimuli and just controlling your inner self , so the tendency of mastering own self decline and slowly we entered into the phase where it became very hard to come out of drugs and drug became master of your self
Our government made weed illegal just cause USA said us to do so in 1980's and now they have legalized it but India still hasn't. You can still get it illegal way in India and that just funds gangs etc.
RESPECT GURUJI. okay im no taxi driver & no surgeon, nor a lawyer. I'm just a drop out rip off gamer! i feel sorry for that surgeon who is not allowed to operate while high!! cause a surgeon might say, he needs to clear his mind before an operation!!! well, u can't do that cause people may not like it. now how am i suppose to know if my surgeon is high on weed or meth or cocaine or whatever!!! in that case if im a believer i pray to God that the surgery is successful. im trying to say that we should have a proper List of what u can do and can't do while high. like there are lots of things that i don't wanna do while high. i don't know any sickkkk surgeon who wants to operate while high!!!! what kind of a crazy trip that would be? about me, the things i want to do while high - playing video games, watching movies(spc sci-fi),listening to some hardcore stoner rock and while riding ma mtb in the woods[note: not in the busy clumsy road, cause that would be such a waste of the potent stuff] and for medical purposes. And i may need to be high to understand the depth of ur knowledge and thesis. okay now why i can't do those things if I'm not harming anyone and minding my own business ?? YES GURUJI, it enhanced ma life, it clears my mind and gave me new hope. before Ganja there was all these negativity and dullness... okay my story doesn't matter, what matter is that what it can give to the world, how it saves lives and the planet, with its various usage. it may really solve the problem of deforestation. after all its just a plant!!! May be God has planned it this way, cause he knew about the so called war on drugs, that Man will make synthetic bullshit drugs to mislead others. that's y he put it on earth so that man can rely on the nature( this is just ma theory, im making this all up). if u think it this way then its surely to be a mercy from God, if im a believer!!!! Ohhh u wise guys corrupted by dirty politicians, pharmaceutical companies, tobacco and alcohol companies, when u will realize the true Potency of this plant???? and about those companies, ye need not to fear this plant!!! even if it is legalized not all people gonna jump into stoner madness. people still be smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and rely on pharmaceuticals. i really hope that India becomes the first country in Asia to legalize weed, so that it may set an example for the rest. and y even bother Guruji about asking weed since in India its like buying a candy. it is we who should request our politicians to regulate it rather then wiping out the dealers without any trial!!!!!! and Guruji i didn't write all this while high, cause of the scarcity I'm not smoking it for some months now. who wants to smoke anyway??? i wanna have some pot brownies!!!! again RESPECT GURUJI. sorry for all the long chit chat, rip ma English and PEACE OUT.
I really enjoy Sadhguru! 💜🙏
For my spiritual journey I've also really loved watching quite a lot of Sri Avinash at the moment. #SriAvinash 🙏
It feels as though my life has changed for the best just from watching Sri Avinash's Satsang talks.
He is a Chutia ! why does he needs a driver he should be walking the world instead of riding on a car this means that he himself does not know the meaning of spirituality he does not need a Car but intead should donate everything he has this is what religion teaches
Marijuana was put on this planet to access a part of your brain that cannot be accessed while sober. No offense you sound like you do not have any logic in what you preach or believe in. Make a clear statement. Your analogies are bias.
I would rather have a stoned surgeon than somebody who is thinking of several problems in his life while operating me. There is no decision making problem with hundreds of stoners I have seen in my life. One of the most sorted man I know living is a stoner(Joe Rogan). The smarter man who is no more was also a stoner(George Carling). Chill out.
According to holy scriptures there are 3 types of people in this world, those in the mode of goodness, those in passion an those in the mode of ignorance. There are many stories we find in the holy scriptures many demons they worship Shiva but they do no surrender to Krishna. One well known is Ravana, today people are nowhere on the level of Ravana . Ravana got boom with Shiva , as he is one of the greatest devotee Of Shiva but Ravana was a demon. Shiva as so merciful, He took care even of of those who approach Him even in the mode of ignorance. A sadhu is one who guide someone, to renounce on material things, not to make one to become even more materialistic. Sadhus who smoke cannabis, drink alcohol, my respect goes to all but they they do not know the greatest goal of live. Those Saddhus who smoke, drink alcohol they will surely fell from the path of spiritual advancement. One should worship or come to the level of pure Bhakti, NOT perform worship in the mode of ignorance. To stay healthy one should consume food in the mode of goodness not ignorance. cannabis are in mode of ignorance. if there is no other medicine, no alternative , for medical reason then one may take it. Of course cannabis plants is more natural than other chemical medicines but plants which are in mode of goodness is best. Legalizing cannabis is the worst one will do. People in general are already misusing cannabis, what will happen if it makes legal. Its time for you people to start reading the holy scriptures. To all people who have this misunderstanding that Shiva smoke cannabis. Lord Shiva do not smoke cannabis. What do you think Shiva is just an ordinary like you, He need some leaves to mediate. Shiva drunk the whole ocean of poison. .. Har Har Mahadev !!
a simple fact people see things as they want to ,so if u think weed is bad then ok . i like sadhguru"s ideas. So some Knowledge= Atharva ved the only ved that was approved by lord Shiva himself rather than lord bhrama states that after TULSI , CANNABIS is the second holiest plant on earth. (atharva veda basically teaches how to keep your body healthy) . at the end it upto you believe in the bad side of research or the good.
I’ve been smoking weed daily for over 15 years and I can make decisions just fine. In fact my decision making abilities are enhanced when I’m high. It is the undisciplined minds who lack any true vision or purpose in their life that smokes weed and behaves poorly or downright ungodly. I’ve also been a devout meditator since I was 15 years old and to me weed is like a gateway to Samadhi when done ritually for meditation purposes. This guy claims he’s stoned all the time and that we can generate our own chemicals? Interesting theory. I’d love to see him hooked up to a brain scan while he’s supposedly releasing all this natural THC in his brain. I would bet my money the test proves there is no additional activation of his cannabinoid receptors than normal. Our brain also releases heavy amounts of Dimethyltriptimide (DMT) at the time of death and a little before dreaming. Yet when you ingest DMT at high enough doses the experience is...well...very similar to the ancient Veda’s mystics journeys to the higher planes of consciousness through meditation or yoga. Except instead of doing some ritual for years and years in order to gain a little advancement in “killing the ego”, DMT skyrockets you straight to Vishnu himself! THC will center you. But DMT will transcend your entire reality. And for him to say “why not go do coke too?” just shows how uneducated he really is about certain substances. Hmm here is a peach 🍑 but if you’re going to eat the peach you might as well eat some dog poop too 💩. Same analogy. And to say we only talk of medical benefits when you’re sick???? That’s like saying we should only eat when we’re starving!!! You maintain health by actively doing healthy things. Like smoke weed whenever you get sick of living in a world full of con men ✌️❤️💯💯👽👽👽👽
It’s personal belief of legend.. but for me i am always high in gym.. i do major calorie burning exercises and even i read after being high... there is no such thing that can impair your brain cell with just thc receptor activation.. i am also medico that’s my personal belief...
This huy has an agenda. Why does he assume legalisation would mean people driving stoned or surgeons performing stoned? Yes, it affects your decision-making, but again, why assume it happens in a negative way? Most high earners are doing all kinds of drugs, cannabis being the least to be worried about. By high earners I mean lawyers and surgeons too. And throwing cannabis in the same category as cocaine also raises questions about this guy's motivation when talking about drugs.
Isss mc baba ko pakisthan bhej khud mc way janta h trippn ka sb words bhi bana aj ke jamane ke jante h wahhhh mc khud raaes h manage kr skta h india m sb mehnga weed afford nhi kr skte toh apna gyaan apne pass rhk or itni dikkat h toh nikal INDIA se or MODIJI WILL LEGAL IT MARK MY WORD UH ASSHOLE BABA AND BJP WILL AGAIN WIN BECAUSE OF THIS GIFT TO ALL INDIANS WHO ARE TAKING ALCOHOL AND HITTIN PEOPLE ON STREETS LIKE APNA BHAI SALLU
I have very little experience in altering my own body chemistry without outside assistance, but I have experienced it. With practice and the right methods it is possible to self alter your perceptions. Weed was just legalized here in Canada and the results of that have yet to play out besides long lineups at dispensaries. I do think that it should be legalized, it’s a way more “safe” drug than alcohol is, and serves a definite purpose compared to tobacco.
I was a Ganjaru and I was always happy during that time but what I found out after I left smoking marijuana for a while is that my brain was not as productive as it was.Then a few months later I was hit with anxiety and palpitations.I went on a proper diet and lifestyle quitting smoking and drinking completely for a year and now I feel way better with no anxiety and palpitations.I have given up smoking completely.But yeah you can replace smoking with a peg or two of your favourite whisky or beer,whatever but not get addictive at the same time.Elon musk in Joe Rogans podcast show says that smoking marijuana would make his mind less productive and wouldn't have as much ideas as he had and has now for us.The only answer that lies is to not make smoking marijuana an addiction just like in the case of alcohol.To all the regular stoners,you are enjoying it now but you will have your days of suffering sooner or later in your mid-term of life.
Speaking good English doesn't makes you a wise man..... Utter rubbish put across in subtle way..... There are no real studies which he is talking about.... These were some propaganda is too huge to be covered in this style of speaking
you can choose to be a generic biased stoner, or you can be an exploring psychonaut. don't let anything put you into bias. but ofcourse don't ever get into hard drugs. explore marijuana, DMT, LSD. understand the differences. heal yourself with their powers. all the information about you is within you. you can choose to become a better person while using DMT, the spirit molecule. godspeed :)
Who's is sick who is not whom to decide? Hahaha pls he need more experience, meditation is a medication too, now he gonna say its for sick too? human need meditation so as well joy, the balance is key to all... You can meditate and chill and someday marijuana n chill, life is to enjoy, y so serious
This guy is nothing more than a self centered narcissist with a propaganda. He thinks he possess perfect knowledge about anything and everything. All his teachings about self knowledge, spirituality, mindfulness, humility, blah blah is meant for the upper class society with most of them being financially independent or atleast financially stable. For those who have had spent a highly materialistic life all their time and are finally seeking for some solace late in their lives.
His teachings simply cannot be put to practice by the underprivileged......someone who's from the slums who's got mouths to feed at home.
Also, our ancestors lived millions of years as hunter gathers, traits of which are still hardwired in our brain. If all our ancestors would have practiced meditation and stuff on similar lines, perhaps a pride of lions or a pack of wolves would have got us all for dinner. Lol. We are here on earth to spread good genes, no more no less. We aren't here to be happy or to stay in high spirits.....no.
Just get off of this phoney, highly sarcastic phoney ass. He talks about spirituality and consciousness and yet his examples and aphorisms are all based on Today's modern capitalistic society.
Rather engross yourself in stoicism with the works of Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and the likes and be a badass.
Also I think, it would be great fun if someone laces Sadguru's food with some 100-200 mg pure thc and then make him have a teaching session with his disciples. Lol. Then he would come to know what being stoned really feels like. Btw...... I'm stoned af.
Why not run a campaign to criminalise cigarette smoking in that case? No balls? Let me guess..because the lobby is too strong to contest...and as far as smoking marijuana is concerned..I know a hundred lawyers n surgeon who are ace in their job while consuming marijuana for recreational purpose..BTW the most creative man of the century- Elon Musk is a regular marijuana smoker...go burn
