The MJ smoked today is a lot different than in my younger days. The pot these days is more potent than it used to be. Smoking pot when you are younger than 16 sees a 25% chance of psycyatric problems particularly scizophrenia. "Getting out of it" means exactly what it says. Getting out of life and into something alternate. If you need it to have some fun then you should re-examine your life and try to have fun in this reality. I have seen many people brain****ed by this shit and they can't see it happening. Ya only get one brain. Look after it.
