Being a Productive Stoner
Posted 24 July 2008 - 06:59 AM
I guess what I mean to ask say is, I think everyone here sees the bullshit that goes on in our society; the people that are in control (be it media, government, big business, etc.) are the ones that know the least- at least in the context of marijuana.
So how are like-minded people like us supposed to stand up against these forces? I don't really have an answer here other than trying to spread information where there is misinformation. But how?
EDIT:: Just a thought to keep in mind, there are over 100,000 people registered here. Half of that would be way more than enough to do something...

I dunno dude there's like 105,000 members on the forum, if anything should happen it should happen here. I was just thinking about this earlier today, how much potential for change there is in a community like this
Dude, exactly. I was having inklings of that thought myself. So we have potential, even in these forums, but what to do?

And what I feel what we should do is just always be positive, lets get rid of this stereotypical view of what to be a "pothead" is. Personally for me, I don't wear hemp pants and a tie dye shirt with food stains on it... I wear normal clothes... We need to be more responsible, get to better places in life with out careers; basically just shoot for the stars... I know it sounds a bit cliche but its true, we need to do it; and its possible to do it when being a productive stoner...
Just my $0.02....
edit: I'm not bashing getting high and eating a shit load of food all while watching a movie; I even still love to do it... I can't wait to go watch the Dark Knight stoned....

I hate how when you start smoking everyday, you learn all these things and truths about the government that they don't want you to learn and then if you try to tell any non-stoner they just think you're retarded when ironically they are the retarded brainwashed ones. And there's nothing you can do about it.
+rep for hitting the nail on the head bro

to me there are two types of smokers: pot heads and recreational smokers. a pot head is someone that falls into the stereotype of what most people believe marijuana smokers are: lazy, unable to think logically, and hungry. recreational smokers can be responsible with their high. i personally do this by trying not to smoke until all my obligations for the day are handled, i dont smoke in front of people that dont approve, i dont get excessively high, etc. i see smoking as a way of relaxing. i enjoy relaxing after a hard day at work. basically i try to live my life by being a living example that weed can be handled responsibly and people that smoke are capable of being upright, successful, and in control.

I think I am not the only one being tired of the categorization that is going on concerning marijuana users. We are labelled as drug addicts and lazy people. Why you might ask? It comes all back to what we are all saying, those who are ignorant of its effect and the benefits of consuming it.
Is there a lot of bad things going on all around Cannabis? Yes there is, let's not go blind on these issues. But what is a thousand times more wrong is to put a blindfold on the problems of alcohol and cigarettes. While thousands suffer the consequences of these legal drugs, we are pointed and made a fool of for enjoying something these who are pointing don't even understand!
Do I believe anything will happen from this forum? No, to be quite frank. We are labelled as smokers before anything else, and our judgement is than biased, or at least, that's what they will say. (media, government, journalists etc...)
I try to educate people whenever I can, not necessarily by saying the same ol' "I enjoy it, it's great", but rather by telling them how I feel about it, what the experience was, and who was I with when I started. I have to say, being a college graduate and being accepted into one of the best university in Canada makes them actually realize, when I talk to them, that I am not a stoner that does nothing and roam dark alleys in never-ending research for illegal substances, but rather a normal human-being enjoying the herb so many governments call dope.
This is a much bigger issue, always having to call upon a higher instance to convince someone, but that is what has been working for me.
P.S. A democratic parliament declared, in a constitutional law that marijuana was no different or more dangerous than already in legal circulation drugs. Welcome in the Netherlands. Amen
