So my fellow blades, I was perusing some threads in the philosophy section and pondering some of lifes challenges concerning marijuana, and a thought came to me; What's the relationship between people who grow their own bud and smoke every day to the people who don't grow their own bud and smoke every day? I've seen quite a few people post about how they believe weed is a crutch and that by smoking it all the time they're limiting themselves, and while I believe in addiction and that weed is addictive (I for one am 'addicted' in a sense), I also am always thinking one question when I see things like that; do you grow, or just buy? So, I'm curious to know how many blades or bladies out there grow there own and smoke every day because of it, and how that affects your life. Do you feel like it's limiting you? Or do you use it every day like you would the toilet? And for those of you who just buy and don't grow, but smoke every day, do you feel like it's affecting your life in a negative way? Do you constantly think about these negative things? Do you not feel like it limits you? Basically I want to know this; does growing and having your own supply make you less likely to feel 'addicted' than someone who has to spend money all the time to get it? I thought this could be an interesting discussion, so I'll start things off; I tend to smoke every day and do not grow, and while I do spend a lot of money on the herb, I don't really think it ever inhibits me from many things. Sure, there are times in every day society where marijuana is frowned upon, so it may make me feel uncomfortable, but honestly I think weed helps me in so many more ways than it takes away from me. Life gets me down sometimes, but it's not the buds fault. And I can go a day or two without it before starting to feel 'symptoms' which I know are just in my head, so I tend to just let it slide. But, that's just me, and given the opportunity I would start growing immediately.
