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.... are a douchebag.

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

Have a good day.

IDK if it's ironic so much as it's that sub-culture jargon can be really annoying. Like, I don't have to call someone a stupid breeder-moo because I might not want kids.

Maybe I'm weird but the only moms I call moos are women who are OBSESSED with their children and expect everyone else to be.

When your internet handle is say... "MomtoRiley" and you answer every question about what movies you like with "Riley likes Toy Story" and every question about books with "I READ GOODNIGHT MOON TO RILEY!" and every question about travel with "I'M TAKING RIIIIIIIILLYYYYY TO DISNEYLAND! RIIIIIIIILEYYYYYY" then yes, you're a fucking stupid breeder moo.

Everyone else is just mom. :)

But that's moot and just a side bar.

Yeah, I may or may not have at least a couple of these people on my FB feed. The bar is not set very high, but a few of them could at least TRY stepping over it.

It's easy. Just don't act like the world revolves around your child. On the other hand I do realize there are some biological and hormonal factors at work so I do try to remain sympathetic.

Moo Rand aside I think it has less to do with stupid "sub culture" quirks and more to do with the fact that they all act like smoking pot makes them all creative and rebellious and enlightened and edgy and artsy but really they're all just a bunch of assholes who couldn't keep their jobs because they were too stoned to make their shift at McDonalds, smell like ass and smoke because they're too stoned to bathe, sitting around laughing at the word "chickenmonkey"

I can laugh at the word "chickenmonkey" AND take a shower, so there.

And remember to go to work, and not in the same clothes you wore yesterday!

It's hard, that's like four things at once.

this entire post times a million. seriously. Do you still live in Spokane? I'm completely in favor of legalized medicinal (or really, non-medicinal) marijuana, but when you drive through neighborhoods where there's a pot shop on every block, it looks so trashy. My sister was just up here visiting from OK and she was amazed at how they were everywhere.

and I don't smoke, but your comment made me go find all along the watchtower on my itunes. Ha!

LOL thanks.

I think the biggest reasons I'm in favor of legalizing it are 1. tax the hell out of it 2. (biggest reason) the FDA could regulate it and keep it safe, and if it were being sold legally we could put an age limit on buying it like we do with alcohol. 3. it would REALLY hurt the drug trade and drug dealing. Most drug dealers make most of their money off of pot. It's easier to obtain and sell than hard drugs.
