...the Turks and the Hispanic US Army prisoners discovered marijuana plants growing wild on the mountainside when out on wood-foraging expeditions, and at least some of the British took up the habit of smoking the dried leaves..."They used to call it the giggling weed," an 8th Hussars trooper recalled of those who indulged, "because there was a lot of laughter and silly nonsense."
I don't know how to judge marijuana, but the stuff I had, well, you didn't give a dang whether anything happened that day. We'd pass that joint around and everybody would lie there laughing and hollering. You'd never know we were in a POW camp.

The foundation of irreligious criticism is: Man makes religion, religion does not make man. Religion is, indeed, the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again. But man is no abstract being squatting outside the world. Man is the world of man – state, society. This state and this society produce religion, which is an inverted consciousness of the world, because they are an inverted world. Religion is the general theory of this world, its encyclopaedic compendium, its logic in popular form, its spiritual point d’honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, and its universal basis of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality. The struggle against religion is, therefore, indirectly the struggle against that world whose spiritual aroma is religion.
Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
