A country can get more real joy out of just hollering for their freedom than they can if they get it. -Will Rogers This quote got me to thinking. Would Mary Jane be as mystifing if you could find her at the local convience store? If you could get stopped by the cops and not have to worry about it? If the company party had a smoking bar also? In other words, how would you feel if pot were legal and suddenly all us stoners were an open and free part of society? I'll start the ball rolling. Been a smoker for 26 years. At various times thru those years I've grown and dealt it also. Never been busted, although there have been some extremely close calls. But part of the original fun of the weed was just the fact that it was AGAINST THE LAW! The first time I smoked it, we drove 20 miles away from the nearest house, hid the car in the woods, then walked another mile into the woods and hid behind a stand of trees. This shit could get ya busted! Ya gotta be careful! It seems as time went on I developed a mentality to not trust authority, to be leary of everything. A bad attitude? Perhaps. But on the other hand, pot, or maybe just the illegality of it, made me see that you should'nt take rules without asking questions. The other part of that would be the newbie smokers that would infest the world! Right now I can go anywhere and after a brief conversation with someone, I can tell 90% of the time whether they are a smoker or not. That may sound a bit pompous, but we true stoners are a unique bunch. Ya can sniff one out in a crowd! But soccer mom smoking circles? Oxaca nite at the local VFW? Dipweeds on pot? I'm not sure how I feel about that yet. Maybe it would be OK. But would I need to find a new illegal activity to "keep my mojo workin" so to speak? When you've been an "outlaw" for 26 years, you kinda get used to it. Anyone?
