If I were 19 years old I'd be spending the day getting high and watching stoner comedies all day long.
But I'm not 19. I'm almost 26. I have 2 kids and we live with my inlaws. Combine all of that and it's impossible to be that irresponsible. (Note: you can get high and be productive. I call this the Functioning Stoner. I'm saying it's irresponsible to spend 24 hours with a joint in your hand watching tv.) Not to mention, having 2 kids, with current marijuana laws, I'd be scared to death to do that even if my kids were with a sitter and I was at a friend's house.
Speaking of current marijuana laws, they make me sick.
I know plenty of people who take a handful of pills (fibromyalgia sufferers, people with cronic lifelong pains, people with depression) to relieve symptoms that they say is relieved by somehow ingesting tiny amount of marijuana. One friend told me for her fibromyalgia the side effects of her pills are worse than the pain, but when she smokes a joint she feels "normal." Now, she has to take all the pills because if she tokes up, she risks losing everything she's ever worked for.
We spend so much money prosecuting something that is actually a gift from God. I seem to remember reading somewhere that he left humans in charge and gave us everything we ever needed on this planet. (However, true to our nature, we wanted more and took the only thing we were told to stay away from.)
This alone could end America's recession. Attach a rolling paper dispenser and they'd have to refill it daily. Put it within walking distance of a college campus and America could be the richest country on earth.
This is what all the fuss is over. Dried up plant matter that once grew at the side of nearly all of America's road ways, naturally. You can make paper, soap, shampoo, conditioner, clothing, countless cosmetics, ropes, shoes, purses, jewelry, home goods, etc with it. It is super easy to grow and maintain. The production cost to make nearly anything out of hemp is insanely low. And remember, the Indians knew how to process and prepare pot before they knew how to make soap.
This is not the enemy. People are going to get high if they want to. Just legalize it, put the same restrictions as alcohol and be done with it. And please hurry, I'd hate to end up having to protest like this.
Just give Granny a bowl.
