Marijuana seemed exciting and fun at first, but once I got into it more heavily, it did a great deal of damage in my life. Cannabis is a gateway drug to harder drugs, without a doubt. ~ Bill Greguska


Tetrahydrocannabinol, a crystalline compound that is the main active ingredient of cannabis that gets a person high, is a gateway drug. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the active chemical in cannabis and is one of the oldest hallucinogenic drugs known.


*But Cannabidiol (CBD) WITHOUT Tetrahydrocannabinol does seem to have medicinal properties that can be helpful.  Cannabidiol is most commonly used for seizure disorder (epilepsy). It is also used for anxiety, pain, and muscle disorders called dystonia, Parkinson’s, Crohn’s, and many other conditions.


Another Term For Addiction = Spiritual Warfare


Philippians 4:7  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Do Not Be Fooled. Marijuana Is Not Safe!

Marijuana and beer (drugs and drinking problems) at first were exciting and totally captured my attention. Still, after a short while, I could see that I was not only doing something I knew was wrong, but I had to start lying to others like my parents to cover my tracks, and the integrity that I did had begun to leave me. The devil was getting the better of me, and things seemed to snowball over time for the worst!
Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.
Is the cost of being considered one of the guys worth it? I partied like I played basketball—with all my heart. I tried to outdo others. Seeking recognition and attention are unyielding motivators in my life.
With the natural personality, and when I added drinking and drugs to it, I created a monster getting more and more out of control. There were many times that I would drink as much as I could to be one of the guys and belong (belong to what, and for what reason, I do not know?).


Low Self-Esteem

People that make radical choices in their life are not necessarily “bad” people. Instead, they most likely, if they are anything like me, they are people with low self-esteem or have a strong desire for attention, or possibly do not care what others think and love to be different.
My basketball testimony went from one extreme to another, but thankfully the Lord kept me near to him, and in time, my life was redeemed from the locusts that eat it away. I praise God for his love and faithfulness in my life!


Drinking Problem

I look back now and can see how much I lost out because of my drinking problem! I might have had some so-called fun, but looking back, it was not worth it to me at all to get involved with drugs and alcohol like I did. Kids nowadays cannot see past the present to understand what they are heading into when they choose to become one of the guys.
Proverbs 23:31 Do not gaze at wine when it is red when it sparkles in the cup when it goes down smoothly. In the end, it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper!
How important is it to guard our eyes to what we watch and our ears to what we hear? I liked the taste and feeling I used to get from marijuana, I could smoke it all day if I had the chance, and many days I did just that.



I was into myself and trying to find ways to make myself feel good—I thought it would make me happy. So far, I even got a marijuana leaf tattoo (and twenty other tattoos) on my left arm to be radically different and gain attention. I was young and foolish, and I did not want to be told that I could not do what I wanted.
When I worked at Faith Indeed, thank God, my boss offered to remove my tattoos for free. I priced them before that time, and I found out they cost $400 per operation, and it turned out that I had 13 surgeries. My boss Bill was very good and generous to me; it was a blessing from God!
I just wanted to fit in and be accepted, and marijuana and alcohol were the common denominators that were my so-called “ticket in.” Looking back at the foolishness I put myself and my family through. It sure was a waste of time and life.
