Reading your question I'm hearing...."Gee.. this Sikh thing looks really cool, but I wanna smoke bud and am gonna smoke bud 'cause I really like it, so if Sikhs can't smoke, that's a dealbreaker."

Now for the answer.... Our Gurus were very plain about this. If you attach yourself to 'getting high' then you attach yourself to a substance outside yourself. When you get high, you later come down... then you have to get high again. In that process lies all the paraphernalia and rituals associated with getting high. It creates a longing to be in that state. The life of a Sikh is all about being high, not getting high. It's not a belief system, it's a practical lifestyle that allows you to remain elevated under all circumstances and in any environment. Anyone can live this lifestyle.

Marajuana stunts your spiritual growth. It diverts your attention to itself and away from God. You see, in Sikhi, we have Waheguru Mantra to give us a great peace, making marajuana useless. Marajuana is Maya. Remember - its just a plant. What do you want to devote your life to - a plant, or God? Yes, maybe if yoy choose to stop smoking marajuana it may be hard, but with love for God you will stop if you choose to. So no - marajuana is not for Sikhs. You will be a fake Sikh if you smoke marajuana. One day, we all hope to take amrit. Amrit, you must be ready to die at the sword for and die for your faith. Now, if you can't accept Guruji's simple rule to abstain from intoxicants such as marajuana, how will you ever take the amrit sanchar ceremony?

Gurfateh, I wish you luck!

In Sikhism, as far as i know intake of anything that detaches u from yourself and your surroundings and even makes u depend on it, is forbidden. being Sikh in true sense is such a grt feeling that u r almost high with pride all the tym why need this weed thing. god bless u. good luck
