Pot Smokers, Be Not Proud

Posted by Troy on 29th April 2014 in Current Events

For over a decade, I have been for the legalization of pot.  I want it to be clear, I have NEVER smoked pot.  I am for the legalization because, 1) we spend billions to take 10% off the streets, 2) it’s basically as harmful as drinking or smoking which are legal, 3) it’s none of my concern what you do to your body, and 4) it’s not worth the tax dollars to keep pot heads locked up.  There are other reasons (taxes, health, taking money out of the hands of gangs and giving it to farmers, etc) but you get the idea.

All of that being said, I am sick of the “pot culture” or these idiots in Colorado and other such places lighting up in public and making a spectacle of themselves.  I don’t think it should be illegal, but it damn sure isn’t something to be proud of either.  It might be one thing if you were someone that lead the initiative and fought for ten years and made sacrifices and, as a one time thing, when it became legal held a press conference and took a hit to make a point.  Sure, that’s one thing.  But getting high in public as though it’s something to be proud of?  Bleep it, people!  ANYONE CAN DO IT!  Give ANYONE a joint and a lighter, and they can pull it off!  It takes no skill.  In fact, it says bad stuff about you, that you need drugs to get through your day.  This is basically the same as someone grabbing a whiskey bottle and chugging it in town square (although drinking in public is illegal in a lot of places).  Anyone seeing this wouldn’t cheer.  They would shake their head, sadly, at that individual.  That’s the appropriate reaction.  You guys are not heroes.

Get over yourselves and knock it off.

Long Live the Constitution!
