This is Gil Student on drugs

Hirhurim finds a contradiction in Rav Moshe's teshuva against smoking pot:

It causes a great desire, greater than the desire for food and similar that are necessary for man to live, and some will not be able to resist their temptation. This is the terrible prohibition mentioned by the rebellious son on the greatest desire that he has for food, even if for kosher food. Even moreso he cannot bring himself to an even greater desire, especially for something for which there is no human need and is prohibited itself.

Read on to find Gil's problem with the above paragraph....

Heh, great title :-) !

I remember the old "this is your brain on drugs" egg-frying anti-drugs ad.

The newer, updated one is better though, with the woman frying the egg and then using the frying pan to smash up the whole kitchen.

This debate is so vintage 1980. The fact that by now there are almost 200 frummie-notes attached to it makes you wonder: Will the August, 2025 Hirhurim be discussing those pesky Paris Hilton tapes?
