You may be hear to just read some of the "stupid" things us "stoners" say.. but let me tell you a little about us..

We know that you view us as useless and probably brain dead.. But we dont smoke weed to gain your approval..

We know that with choosing to smoke weed, we will no doubt receive all sorts of negative judgments and stereotypes that come with it.. And guess what, it's cool.

We understand that you only believe these things because its what you were taught. It's not your fault.. and though it may be hard for you to ever step out of judgment long enough to see our side.. we still see yours..

We understand. Sure it sucks that no matter what kind of grades we get, no matter what good we do in our community, (or how many Gold medals we win in the olympics).. As soon as you find out of the fact we smoke weed.. we then become lazy potheads with no ambition. Crazy hippies who hate the government. But again... We understand.

But again we dont do it for you, we do it for us. Not because its "Cool" or because "everyone's doing it".. We dont do it because our friends at parties peer pressure us. We don't do it because we are addicted, to escape reality, or to rebel.

We do it because we choose to take a healthy alternative to what society finds acceptable. While hundreds of thousands of people die every year because of tobacco, and families are dying in car accidents because of drunk drivers. While kids are overdosing on medicine, and while heart disease is at an all time high because of the poor dieting habits. We choose to stand up for something that that the world blindly accepts as wrong. Why? Surely not because Marijuana is proven to treat more illnesses than almost any other medicine in the world. Surely not because Marijuana can be used to make anything from concrete to bio-fuel,and from clothes to food. Surely its not wrong because there are NO proven negative effects on the human body. Surely its not because of the 0 deaths caused EVER. Its not because you can still make all the same choices you would when youre sober (often times better because of the feeling of wanting to ovoid trouble or conflict while high).

So ask yourself this.. Why then? Why is it society has chose to make such a strong stance against us? Why does it remain illegal for me to smoke in my own house, in private, something that causes no harm to anyone? while you are allowed to take part in a number of hazardous life threatening activities /substances and it be viewed as completely acceptable? We arent asking for you to join us. We arent even asking for you to understand us. We are just asking for you to stop this silly division and let us be. Let us get high and watch cartoons without being judged. Let us get high and enjoy each others company. Let us get high and laugh at silly little things, and appreciate the small things. Let us smoke and contemplate the universe, or listen to music. Let us smoke and eat our taco bell or coco puffs with peanut butter.

We dont ask you to stop the things you do that kill countless people every year.. so please, dont ask us to stop doing something just because you dont understand.

I think that ThatNiggaMarino meant that us as stoners, currently stoned as we stumble upon this HighDea, are in fact too stoned to read past the first 3 paragraphs. I understand you my man, if no one else does...puff pass though.

I think that ThatNiggaMarino meant that we all have to stick together like glue. If we plan to build something fancy as a racecar. There is one thing to remember. Unfortunately, i don't remember what it was, so sorry for the inconvenience.

I know hella people are gonna say i totally agree. But, I agree more! I feel like when it comes to weed vs. government/society its just an unfair fight. And our side will never be seen. I agree so much dude. spark a blunt for the fact that we can understand we use the most useful plant on this planet.

The good are doomed to suffer. you knew this, what are you complaining for? the only thing that keeps anything balanced is that the good won't ever quit, because good; is good... and it just fucking makes works that way. :/

Although the whole of this passage is great, I've got to disagree when you say (stoners) don't get high to escape reality. I think a large amount of people abuse bud, & this applies to people who use it as a scapegoat (almost) every time they are feeling depressed. Great highdea nonetheless, just let us be with our personal choice.

After my day is shot watching CNN,reading posts on Facebook,answering e-mail,filling out job applications,catching up on the latest celebrity gossip(TMZ),conspiracy theories,listening to Rush Limbaugh & Sean Hannity, I catch The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert... I end my day reading all your highDEAS and I know I can wake up the next day and do it all over again. I don't get high . I do not think any of you are losers.

Clean it up and refine this and it could be in any magazine you choose. Newspaper whatever it doesn't matter. This should definitely be published. Covers just about everything in an arguement so no one can combat it. Nice

As someone who recently quit smoking cigarettes and still smokes weed, I will testify to the fact that the small ill-effects of smoking weed ie: sore throat, occasional phlegm, are nothing compared to the morning ritual of choking up a wad of tar everyday.

I was a smoking a bowl when I read this shit. I recently realized that my mind has just been blown.

is it supposed to be hear or here? haha

Sun, 08/04/2013 - 6:01am

Its funny because alot of the stoners im close with and the ones i allow myself to hang around, are pretty knowledgeable and might seem slow while stoned, but Mine and their minds still go 100 miles an hour thinking debating everything fully conscious. So ehh fuck stereotypes.
