I don't have a problem with marijuana. I don't smoke it, but other people smoking it doesn't bother me. I know that science has proven that it's no worse for your body than tobacco, and impedes your judgment and behavior significantly LESS than alcohol. I also know that historically the only reason it was made illegal to begin with was because it was poised to threaten the tobacco industry, and the tobacco industry put a lot of money into propaganda and misinformation to get it banned. I also know that if it were legal it could be regulated and would be safer, we would take greater government control over who it was sold to (You think a drug dealer cards people and doesn't sell to minors?) and we could tax it and help our national debt crisis.

That being said, is it ironic that in spite of having that opinion I HATE stoners and stoner "culture"?

When every musical artist you listen to is either Bob Marley or someone else closely associated with pot smoking, when the only magazine you read is "high times" when you have a fucking pot leaf tattoo and every article of clothing you own is either Rastafarian colors, has Bob Marley on it, or has "legalize it" or other pot-related patches crudely stitched to it... when every single online handle you have ends in the numbers 420 and stoner and pot smoker is the cornerstone of your ENTIRE FUCKING IDENTITY....

...you are a douchebag.

And I don't have to have a moral objection to smoking pot to think so.

Have a good day.
