Why could being smart all the time be bad? Well, what they don't tell you is that it never stops. Even if you want it to. As you age those discovery rushes get.. Tiring. Exhausting. Irritating. I suspect that the neural pathways easily get exhausted and depleted of those cannabanoid related chemicals. I can tell you that a bit of pot really does alleviate a whole lot of mental exhaustion.
Really. My mind is constantly on the move and learning, but I certainly don't find the simple fact of it exhausting. I also don't need drugs to give me a break.
The OWS movement had medical tents and cooking tents set up. The city of New York confiscated their generators and created yet another incident to use as media fodder in their battles to discredit OWS.
There were also verified incidents of OWS members approaching NYPD officers to ask for help in dealing with disruptive people. The NYPD officers refused to help and helped create a situation where criminal activity was left completely to the OWS people in direct violation of their promise to serve the needs of public safety. They were also caught sending homeless people released from jail to the OWS protests to cause further problems.
