Escaping or Connecting?

When you use something to escape, you use it to turn your mind off. To ignore the emotions, thoughts, and feelings that come along with a situation.. You become a zombie, and it is how they have controlled us for decades. People accuse me of using marijuana to ‘escape’ but can’t see their own escapisms (alcohol, television, computer). But I don’t use marijuana to escape.. Quite the opposite.. I use it to connect. I connect to my feelings, to other people, to artwork.. To life. I never feel so alive as when I am using marijuana, It is mind expanding, but nobody can understand that.. They think it is worse than being numbed by television, the constant bombardment of images and sounds that will forever stick in our minds, rotting our brain to mush.
