Re: All of the Intellgent People I Know---Smoke Pot
It's true. And I know a lot of people. Many of them hide it and lie about it but at the end of the day, you always find out they do it.

The majority of people I know who don't smoke pot are, let us say, less than amply gifted with brains. They go around with their narrow views and closed minds and act dumb, just like the cliched version of stoners they always hate on.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25146756


Maybe you're hanging around with the wrong crowd. I'm a physicist, I know tons of remarkably intelligent people, other physicists, mathematicians, astronomers, chemists, all men of science and NONE of them are potheads. What are trying to do? Justify your addiction creating an illusion that it is good? Think twice buddy, think twice if you can.

Pot just help you be more of who you are. If you are lazy, you will be lazy on pot. If you are a hard worker, you will work hard on pot. It is really that simple.

I know a lot of people who smoke pot. Some of them are smart, but most of them are fanatics. None of them have successful careers, and appear far lazier than the average human, with countless excuses of why they are superior, due to their beliefs and vast revelations.

I've been smoking weed pretty much daily for 10 years.

And, most people come to me for answers.

Re: All of the Intellgent People I Know---Smoke Pot
I believe that people who have the idea that all potheads are lazy moochers have bought into the "reefer madness" stereotype. Most successful potheads have learned to keep their bongs and joints out of public view. Many of us are "in the closet" so to speak because it is an illegal activity even if we partake in the privacy of our homes. We learn to manage the risk of smoking pot in this way. There are bad drunks just as there are responsible drinkers. A successful, responsible, and productive drinker learns to enjoy a drink or three without being a dick to people around them and surely will not let alcohol ruin their careers.

Unfortunately, cannabis is still taboo (as it is proven by weed-haters who risk no consequence from authorities by being vocal about their disdain for cannabis) thus responsible and productive marijuana users who wish to maintain their pursuit of happiness without infringing on the rights of others are forced out of public view. What you have then is the view that the responsible, productive stoner is a MYTH and that the lazy, irresponsible stoner is the NORM and FACT.

Its sad really. Many of us would like to comfortable in our own THC-laden skin, but so far the path of least resistance/oppression is to keep quiet about our bongs, brownies, and buds and let intolerable bigots remain.... intolerant.

The thing about "retarded stoners" is that they do more then just smoke a lil weed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12446936


Exactly! Besides that, until now, weed is prohibited, which means that the only way to acquire it, is be illegal drug dealers. Being illegal drug dealers is not the only problem also, the problem is the supply chain that ends at them. I live in a country where this is done in plain sight and I know how bad it is. Do you people got any clue on how many children are lost to drugs traffic, just for you to "enjoy your bong"? MANY! Lots of children used to plant, carry and distribute it. Why? Well, they pretty much got no chance.

There's also the violence factor. Being illegal, means that the police is always on their neck. That brings them the need to always be armed and ready for a conflict. And more: drug dealers don't smug only pot, there are several other "substances" they deal with. Things that are really bad for you and make the "users" to become often violent due to the mental altered state. Also, the addiction to these other "things" is very strong, bringing the user to its knees, selling anything they have to sustain their addiction. And when the money runs dry, they see themselves in the need to steal, prostitution and even worse things.

Bottom line is: your addiction to pot is financing a huge international drug scheme, that destroys several lives, increases violence everywhere it touches and making the world a place a little bit worst everyday. With that in mind, do you still think potheads are intelligent?
 Quoting: CripplingLies


Maybe in your country, all of our weed is grown domestically. Drug mules aren't needed here.
But nevertheless, keep in mind that at the end of the day marijuana is just a plant. And you're silly for thinking it to be anything more.

I think I know why, at least why I use it.

To shut my friggen brain off, just to catch my breath once in awhile. My subconscious never stops and a lot of it bleeds off into my conscious. At night dear god, it can be impossible to shut it up at times when trying to sleep.

That's why I use it, to get get some sleep. It is a very nice tool to gain more empathy and perspectives as well.

I know folks that you would never suspect as pot smokers who do have sucessful lives, and, no, they are not "lazy" people.

For me it would depend on the job that I was doing as to whether or not I would want to be "high". If I needed to use critical thinking skills, no, I would not want to be high. If I was doing some boring and mundane chore, like yardwork or housework, yes, I would want to be high!

Fitting screen name.

You're thinking of heroin, which will turn you into a theft, then a prostitute, before it kills you in the street like a dog.
That makes the world a place a little bit worst everyday.
Pot, not so much.

Also, dumb pot smokers go to prison for twenty years for a joint. That's why you don't know any.

There is no question that pot facilitates some people's
ability to function.
The problem is that everything has a price and believe me,
most of you have are clueless as to what that price is.

You have lost your understanding of the difference between
a mere functionary and a warrior.

You're in a box where an escape mechanism has to be the only way to explain free thought. This is evident in your comparison with pot smokers vs a pill-head.

While a scale would tip the pot smokers if weighing between the two, it's still a box to compare.

There's only so far you can go with psychoactive substances, and generally, all they do is ignite or amplify an already active imagination with the added attribute of an open mind.

No drug requires these two elements to work. I can get lost in extremely detailed analytical thought on just reading or hearing an enlightening thought.

You've placed yourself in a mental prison of robotic-dependency when telling yourself that anything you imagine or believe is thanks only to a drug.
