The transfer to the astral is more rapid then to the physical and if this astral crippling persists to the point of physical death, then the individual will find himself in a deformed and weakened astral body after he dies. Finallly, we should point out that Marijuana, and any chemical that artificially opens the senses to higher or "other" vibrations is not a proper way to aquire "gifts" similar to those developed by persons who have spent years on the Path and have finally earned the right to these special faculties. In some cases these drugs can serve the purpose of making the person aware that these higher experiences exist, but they should never be used beyond that simple discovery. After the seeker has been made aware of the existence of these other levels of being and awareness, he sould forthwirht abandon the artificial method (involving the drugs and chemicals) and should work to develop the gifts from his own inner awareness. If he can do that, then the gifts will always be his birthwright in later incarnations. But those who continuously use the crutch of Marijuana and the other drugs suffer the opposite fate. They find themselves in later lives even further from their goal in terms of the development of natural spiitural gifts.
