I just started going to school here in Berlin, Germany recently; Something I’m really pleased about because I’ve been wanting to go to school for years.
Anyway, the more I get to know the others in my class, the more I discover how many people actually smoke joints - quite a lot :-?
A few months ago, I was back in England with all my friends and they all tried to get me to smoke a joint. I kept saying no and I ended up leaving the house to take a nice long walk. Fortunately they were all finished by the time I got back.
Even more recently, about a week ago, some friends at school asked me if I would like to goto the park place with them for our lunch break. So I came along and before I knew it they were all offering me joints
I felt kind of shocked and…disappojnted and I haven’t been able to look at them in the same way since. I even find it hard to spend time with someone that smokes joints
Last Thursday, one of the girls in my class said that most youngsters in Berlin have smoked joints and done drugs before. Suddenly for me the world seems like a very small place indeed.
Why does it feel so wrong for me? A lot of people appear to do it without ever thinking twice but I just can’t. It just feels wrong. I couldn’t smoke a joint like I couldn’t hit a girl or purposely hurt someone. Not because it’s illegal, but because my heart tells me that it’s simply the wrong thing to do.
So my questions is as stated in the title of my post: Is Smoking Marijuana immoral?
I would be really greatful for some explanations for your answers so please drop in a few words about why you think smoking a joint is moral/immoral.
Please help me understand
