After enjoying some fine herb, my boyfriend and I were talking and personified the 3 big personal substances-tobacco, alcohol, and weed-this is what we came up with:

Tobacco is like a big fat white politician that can basically get away with murder cuz he has tons of money

Alcohol is like a super hot chick that everybody loves to spend the night with even though you know you'll wake up sorry the next morning cuz she's gonna screw you in more ways than one

And weed is like Jesus - quietly helping so many, easing so much suffering, and yet is publicly crucified for spreading hope.

Yeah.

No, but hundreds of thousands of non-violent offenders, normal people who aren't even the big dealers, are arrested and sit in jail right now so that politicians and big business can profit off of the private prison industry. It's a metaphorical comparison after all.

Of course, I'm just saying that the comparison of weed with jesus comes from a tremendous ignorance of history, and is based only on the modern concept of jesus as the all-loving peacenik, which he really wasn't anything like.

 
 
Sun, 07/11/2010 - 3:57pm

Of course it does, I'm not even religious, least of all Christian. I don't believe in any religious following, and I certainly don't pretend to know their teachings. The comparison comes from the modern day concept of Jesus, much like Santa Claus.

i believe in god and Jesus. I'm roman catholic but i have weird beliefs i think that god is everything in the universe. but anyways... never mind i forgot what my point was. friend with weed is a friend indeed

Alright, understandable. Sorry, I'm a bit too over-analytical at times.

No dude, Jesus was the prophet sent by God to spread the news that God has forgiven them for all of humanity's past, present, and future sin. The entire concept of Jesus' coming was to spread good will. The ignorance of kings and people in power turned the Lord's message into something more violent.

 
 
Mon, 07/12/2010 - 10:07pm

Well I'm so glad it only took god a few thousand years to forgive us for a woman eating an apple.
Fuck off, pal, you're preaching to the wrong person.

this is my brothers account but I loved the main post and had to comment this... This is soo true, and if America just stood up together to fight about this fact, weed would be legal completely.. We need to do this... and when it does I hope I'm involved.

Really? You're gonna pull one of those cards on everyone? Despite the fact that the majority enjoy this highDEA and it makes them happy, you're gonna hate on them? Even if you disagree with it, why waste your time on it if it really matters to you so much? Wow. Douche.

Why the hate? Even if you don't agree, no need to hate on what other people believe in.

Smoke the herb and be happy.

<3 weed

Great highdea, except you forgot to mention that Jesus was the first goofball in the entire bible to "warn" people of their eternal damnation in hell for not loving the shit outa the guy and his pops. Plus, I don't think he would partake, he was too straight for his own good.

 
 
Sun, 07/11/2010 - 8:12pm

First off, I don't particularly care because I'm not at all religious and don't even really believe in Christianity. Second, and more importantly, back in his day, weed wasn't illegal, nor was it looked down upon; actually the opposite was true, it was used and revered as a medicinal herb as well as for paper and clothing. It wouldn't be at all surprising to find out that Jesus did in fact use weed, not to mention Pops is the one that put it on earth if you wanna take that route.

If that's the way you want to go, I also forgot to mention that the very first bible ever printed and bound was printed on cannabis hemp paper. God's law was written on WEED.

THANK YOU. Finally, someone actually gets it. It's about the metaphors, not the damn history behind them all. Geeze people, smoke more weed...

I'm glad the majority of the people here realize how awesome this analogy is. But why do some people gotta get so butthurt about religion? This isn't saying you have to believe in Christianity lol. Just take it for what it is, a great way to look at these three substances and what they represent to people. Kudos on this one!
