*Conversation continued* <-------25 (26 on Aug. 29th :roll: ), BA Poly Sci 3.2GPA, MPP in progress 3.75GPA, Working for a Renewable Energy company (salaried - not temp/hrly). After I get off work, I go coach youth football, I volunteer at festivals and sometimes for city events, and I also smoke. But I don't call myself a pothead - because its a derogatory name people, too scared to think for themselves, place on a group of other people that choose to live their lives without daddy telling them whats in their best interest. When you assume that, because I smoke I'm a much lesser member of society, you're being willfully ignorant. There was a time when I thought, "man if weed was legal society would probably deteriorate (around freshman year of high school) , but I kept meeting more and MORE people (most of which were people I respected) who were FAR more productive and motivated than I was - and they also smoked. The only reason they're more hush hush about it is because they are worried about the negative reputation it would give them - and that's a little ridiculous, because that fear is driven by people like you with comments like those. Too many successful entrepreneurs (not artists) to list, who have admitted to smoking - before, during, and after their success. But, I guess I can see your point about weed making people lethargic. ...I lost count... or that if you smoke weed you're probably lazy. Go ahead, i DARE you to tell him that. I always look to Michael Phelps, and the Governator as a great examples of how stereotypes associated with weed are BS. Providing a black market with funds and depriving a struggling economy of large source of potential revenue, because of a stereotype, is ridiculous. I don't know GR - what do you think. btw - I was high when I wrote this.
