    I've read the thread on giving advice and knowledge to our younger members on Cannabis and toking up, however I believe there needs to be a thread on giving our LIFE knowlege away to the young 'uns. I hope there isn't another thread in this vein, but I am too lazy/stoned (LOL) to look.

    Over the years I've learned a lot, mostly the hard way (ouch), and some lessons took a while to get right.

    After having a slight altercation/heated discussion on another thread (which shall remain unnamed, I am not proud of it, and he shouldn't be, either) with another person here at Grasscity, I think WE ALL, young and old alike, can learn from one another. Some of the wisest words I have ever heard spoken has come from an 18 year old first year college student, who had been smoking weed for two years. Now that young man had a head on his shoulders, and a BRAIN inside that head, too! ;) And he has a very good chance at furthering his law career in Cannabis defense at a large, highly coveted Ivy League school. Good luck, David!

    Let us older farts here at Grasscity give a few words of wisdom to our future leaders and activists. And may our younger members start a new thread to which maybe us older tokers can learn as well from them!

    1. Treat others as you would like to treated. This ought to be a law somewhere. Too many times I have seen older stoners put down our younger counterparts because they believe they are Gods of Knowledge or something. We can ALL learn from EACH OTHER, young to old, and old to young! Why should we diss someone for growing Lowryder and hauling in smaller yields than someone growing a regular strain ? If someone prefers schwag because it's cheap, or cannot afford Kind bud, why diss them for it? Support them, and maybe one they, they will reciprocate, and support YOU!

    Try and put yourself in others shoes, and try to think as they do. Only then will you fully understand where they are coming from.

    I am guilty at doing the same thing at times. However if I am wrong, I'll say so, and apologize, and try my hardest not to make the same mistake again. I want to get along and be friends with everyone here. And everyone outside of our Stoner Nation. I want to go through this world learning from others, and being treated just and fair by others. And passing along what I've learned to others.

    Why can't we all just get a bong? :D

    So that is my first bit of advice to our young adults here at Grasscity. I hope to add more as time goes along, and maybe us older folks will add more as well. But do give good, sane advice. Remember oldsters, we were young once! I think, LOL...

    Happy toking and growing, my friends! :smoking:
  2. COME ON, you old farts! Give some advice, for goodness sakes!

    And you young fellers, start a new thread and teach us old farts a thing or two. Tell us what pisses you off about us, and then tell us how we can make it right!

    You young people are our future leaders! We support you, well, I can't speak for the other old farts here, but this old fart supports you!

    I am sick and tired of hearing older folks put down the young adults.

    Let's teach EACH OTHER, ok?
  3. All the old brothas be sleepin
  4. ROFL:smoking::smoking::smoking::smoking:
  5. I offered this on another thread where a young person asked if life was worth living beyond the teenage years as he had been told that those years are the best life has to offer:

    This may have been true at one time, but I find it did not apply to my life at all. I am nearly 50 now and and it just gets better all the time (except for the aches & pains) It gets better because you become better able to control your own destiny, earn some $ and you get to know how people act & think which allows you to avoid being manipulated or taken advantage of. Don't misread my comment about earning can't buy happiness, but it can provide you OPPORTUNITIES. Life has a lot to offer and if you go about it right you can have a wonderful adventure. There will be days, maybe even years where your life will just fucking blow, BUT it can get better. My best advice (not that you asked!) is to get an education, find a job you like and make your life what you want it to be.,
  6. Now THAT'S what I'm talking 'bout, Heavy Metal 1 ! Excellent advice.

    I have this saying about money - Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a pants load of things to be happy with! Like weed, LOL!

    Thanks HM1 !

  14. You create everything in your life the good and the bad.

    control your thoughts or they will control you.

    Cut anyone from your life if they offer no value,disrespects,or don't live up to your

  15. if you get married.. just remember this one simple rule.. she is always right..
  16. To the OP.

    I'm not gonna pull any punches here, but please understand, my intent is not to flame you in any way, but just to add a different perspective here.

    The ONLY thing that you or any of the "oldsters" are doing here in this thread is giving you an opportunity to feel productive, but don't think for a moment that any of the "youngsters" here give a rats ass as to what you have to say.

    I don't know about you, but for me, I always had to learn the "hard way", that is, I had to learn from my own experiences. The ONLY time that I learned from anyone else is when I ASKED them for advice. It was only then that I was ready to listen, and believe me, that didn't happen too often.

    So yeah, I'm an older stoner here attempting to point out to all you younger stoners (all you who are younger than 65 years old but older than 30) that this thread is nothing more than an exercise to help you make you THINK that you are doing something good for the world, but in fact, is a total waste of your time.

    What isn't a waste of time though, is to periodically bitch-slap these kids silly every once is awhile. It's kinda fun to shove words of wisdom down their throats till their eyes tear up, but ya just have to understand that it is done purely for personal pleasure. :ey:
  17. I thoroughly enjoy this thread!toking and learning.:smoking::hello:
  18. so far in my few years i have learned a good amount due to smoking and socializing with all different age people.

    My main point is respect. if you show respect, you will get it in return, and if you dont, you are with people you shouldnt be with. Respect is key in this world
  19. Honestly, I think a lot of the advice here is good in practice, but I've met too many old fuck-ups to want to listen to anyone but my gut.

    I am also a firm believer in that people only learn from pain and suffering. It's the human way, I could write down all the life lessons I've learned in my short time on this Earth and someone else in the same exact position will never take it to heart unless they go through the same stuff I did to learn those same lessons.

    So my advice, and this isn't from an 'older' member, is to do exactly what you want to do (right or wrong) and learn the most you can because it'll only season you for your future. You only get one shot at life, live it the way you want.

    This is where the line should be drawn. There shouldn't be old and young. We all contain equal amounts of untapped knowledge and wisdom, and to divide us, is to fight us.
    Here's a seasoned-up youngsters words of wisdom.
    I've heard many a men complain of the disrespect handed out by the younger generation, and it's simply because they do the same thing. I don't know how many times I've gotten into an argument with an older person, and watched them make a fool of themselves simply because they couldn't admit to their fault. We're all wrong sometimes, and it would be nice to hear someone admit it, rather than defend their folly until death.

    Youngsters can be right, too. As long as they stick to the facts, and don't misrepresent their opinion, their information is just as valuable as the next guy.
    We're all equals in this world; just because you've been here twice as long as me, doesn't mean your facts are more true than mine.
