Cannabis may be the fastest growing industry in the USA, but what people are actually buying are feelings; like being chilled-out, happy or connected. In TCM these come from free-flowing chi in your organs. Marijuana activates this but in doing so it exploits your organs’ inner resources. Eventually this creates side-effects such as frustration and lethargy. If marijuana had no side effects I’d write books about how to live happily ever after while stoned. Instead, I write about chi and meditation techniques which can deliver not only the calmness & happiness of marijuana, but also the love & connection of ecstasy, the clarity & action of amphetamines, and the psychedelic adventures of LSD. There are no side effects from meditation either, except you become a better person and contribute to a better future for the planet, OM!
