While this may not be bullshit, it may be overblown.  It’s easy to get paranoid and mis-perceive reality when stoned, and possibly a bit after.  But, this is like a “duh” moment because any mind-altering, or more accurately, perception-altering intoxicant can do this.  But, it goes away after a while.

Now, I should comment that I do not approve of adolescents getting intoxicated on anything– there is just too much to learn about and perceive while sober/straight to confuse the brain with intoxicants, but it may not be the end of the world as the frowning “experts” believe.  Still, I think youth is to be experienced in full presence of mind, and intoxicants can come later.
