So sick of hearing idiots (aka republicans) say that weed is for losers. I share my profile on here with my girlfriend who is an attorney. I have a bachelor’s degree from one of the country's top business universities and about to start law school myself. This post is for my young smokers. Do not believe that weed will stop your dreams. Smoke On!

Vote Up if you're not going to let the haters stop you from chasing your dream and smoking while doing so.

You're right, not all republicans are idiots. I retract my statement about republicans.

You can find idiots in all parties. If we are going to get weed legalize we have to be united, regardless what party we side with.

Thanks Sweaterguy92.

Thanks for realizing that you were grouping republicans just as you were angry for them grouping you! I have a tendency to lean to the right on many topics, and smoke weed almost everyday. And I am also a successful stoner, so thanks for the shout out! Keep affirming our good name!

sorry to be harsh for a moment, but if you have a bachelor's degree, you might realize that there ARE many stoners who are successful and bright, but why are you making a highDEA about it? This is where I, like many people, go when I'm blazed and I want to kill a few minutes. There are dozens of these kinds of posts regularly, every one pretty much the exact same. Frankly, do you think anyone is going to decide to change their life and go political this moment?

So, I know this is a very unpleasant comment, but I consider a downvote a very unpleasant comment itself so I thought you might like an explanation. Keep smoking, stay successful and enjoy lawschool, but please support the legalization movement in a more effective manner if that is what you truly wish to do.

p.s. weed can get in the way of your dreams actually. So can video games, so can girls (or boys for others), and so can alcohol.

I'm not a Republican but I'm conservative, yet I smoke the sweet leaf every damn day of my life. It's ridiculous that this herb was ever made illegal. Time to get out of the stone age and into the Stoned Age. LEGALIZE!

I don't necessarily agree with everything that republicans have to say but I know one thing for sure, the only one thing that I agree with from the democratic stand point is legalization of marijuana.

I'm a gram a day smoking conservative. It's not uncommon

I actually want to write a letter to a politician who said regarding the Medical MJ proposal in Kansas "MJ has no medical value, it only makes you want a bag of chips."

After falling on my tailbone this winter, the pain was so bad I would yell out whenever I would cough. MJ was the only thing that deadened the pain and made my days worth living.

I hate you, scared rich white people. I hate you a lot. Hiding the world from your kids through willful and proud ignorance is one of the most narrow-minded things you can do. They see the world through rose-colored glasses and cannot understand why someone would do something they disagree with, until they experience the same hardships.

Sorry about the rant, I just really hate people who are completely happy not knowing how the world works and simply rely on what others have told them.

/end rant

Thank the lord! I rant about this all the time, seeing as how my life has been a great big pile of shit and I live in a really rich town. It gets so old when people are complaining about the most ridiculous things and then when you actually have a really huge hardship in your life they completely don't understand because they've never had the experience! Not that all rich people are like that... just all the one's I know. ;P

 
 
Thu, 02/25/2010 - 3:22am

Dude for sure i know this is kinda off topic but i totally agree Medical MJ has helped people so many cases that's why its getting passed i'm tired of being judged by the uptight kids who have had everything spoon fed to them by their parents, including their success. They all pass school because its a rich neighborhood. They are given athletics just by chance of genetics, and they think they are better than everyone and right about everything. Try real life once.

LightItUp Says:

there are people who do not support legalization who are not rich nor white, and have experienced many more hardships than you. The people who DO support legalization are still a small minority of the population, but it seems very convenient for you to blame it on rich white kids.

really, man? C'mon i guess genetics have go a long way towards making a star athlete but... pretty sure if you work hard enough than starting on most high school sports teams is eeeeassy. Sounds like maybe somebody was smokin when they should have been workin out! It's all about the balancing act baby

I want to add an amen to the OP here. My regular smoking buddy and I regularly discuss the benefits of smoking. For us, it excites the more creative sides of our brains, which is very useful as we're both otherwise typical engineers.

Anyhow, he and I run our successful internet startup while smoking tons of dope. Some of our greatest breakthroughs were generated while high. It's an indispensable way to relax.

So there are definitely the smart stoners around. You'll meet them everywhere (especially bio labs).

mcflyhigh Says:

this is pretty accurate, i'm studying engineering at an ivy league school and there are so many smart stoners here it's awesome. i actually just joined a frat for stoners at my school that has the highest gpa out of any frats on campus... so much for the detriments of weed haha. the thing is, once you toke daily you're no longer in that 'retarded' high that people experience when they smoke every few weeks or less. being high doesn't occupy much of my day and i feel like i can control the high so that the benefits of creativity can be maintained within the boundaries of whatever i'm working on

at any rate, happy toking all!

Ya that was pretty stupid you saying republicans. Theres plenty of republicans who think legalizing and taxing weed is a very smart idea. Sounds like your just a frustrated democrat upset with this so called president we have in office, cause he hasnt done nothing but dig us in a deeper whole. And you just wanted to take your frustrations out on the republicans even tho the republicans have nothing to do with what your saying. So next time think before you say something like that. And I highly doubt your starting law school. Anyone going to law school should have a good enough brain not to say something as dumb as that. That sounds something like a miss informed teenager would say.

dude, im a staunch conservative... and i toke!!!

we believe in legalization... to us it seems that the LIBERALS (democrats) don't want it legalized because the federal govt (fuck them) doesn't like it because they can't make any money off it...

EMO420 Says:

Republicans are not idiots. I regret adding that to my post. You are 100% right, there are many conservatives who do not oppose the legalization of marijuana. But to blame the democratic for marijuana being illegal is wrong. The Republican Party will be our biggest obstacle, NO DOUBT. The Republicans who think with an open mind and who see the tax benefits will be on board. The ones that tie their religious beliefs (although, the bible is not against marijuana) will categorize weed as a harmful drug.

Let's not forget that is was a Republican by the name of Harry Jacob Anslinger that led the investigation that resulted in marijuana becoming illegal. He told a lie about what he called "Negroes" using hemp and holding young girls hostage for days. He claimed that they raped her and gave her syphilis. A) Weed does not promote violence or mental illness. B) Syphilis does cause mention illness and violence (lol, Hitler suffered from syphilis).

To be fair, William Randolph Hearst also played an equal role. He used his newspaper and media connections to help promote the campaign against marijuana. He was secretly protecting his interest in the timber industry. Most of you already know this but paper (among many others) can be made more efficiently out of cannabis. This would be a major blow to the timber industry. OH GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! TREES BEING USED TO CLEAN THE AIR AND NOT MAKE TOILIET PAPER FOR US TO WIPE OUR ASS!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW TERRIBLE!!!!!!!

P.S. There was a comment questioning my honesty about going to law school. I will be starting law school soon and I will work very hard in the fight to legalize marijuana. Don’t hate…congratulate.
