In reply to:
In a normal deployment, this high drag force is quickly absorbed by slowing the jumper as the canopy deploys. A heavier jumper exposes the canopy lines to larger forces because the canopy cannot decelerate as fast.

You'd rather start drawing. Forces are not larger just takes more time....

Force of deceleration is the air resistance of the canopy.
Air resistance is depending on the speed, surface and resistance quotient only.
