Charles, this is a quick thought on a thread that was talking about smoking pot. I respect you and this is why I am addressing you. You were harsh on the kid who wanted to smoke up and find a way to minimize side effects. Now I’m not into pot and have tried it but never became anything much. But just yesterday there was a study that appeared on MSN that said people who smoked pot more than 5x a week lowered their IQ and those who smoked less than 5x a week actually got higher IQ’s. Now by no means is this the bottom line but a preliminary study. And it’s well known that many intellegent authors used pot to help their creativity. I think George Carlin is hysterical as well as a pretty smart guy and he has admitted to using pot infrequently to help realx and be more creative. This life we lead for me anyway is about training the body as well as the mind. And my curiosity is that could using certain drugs to relax and become more creative be worth it. Do I believe that smoking pot is going to make me smarter, not by any means. But do I believe smoking pot a couple of times a month will ruin or have severe affects on my physique or T levels, I’m not educated enough to answer but I would guess no. Just a couple of thoughts I wanted to hear your opinion on.
I read you martial arts training book and have put some friends on the routine and the are blown away, so thanks for making me look like a good trainer. I did give you the credit though. I think you have some of the best training ideas and deserve a great deal of respect.
