I really don't know where to start on how bad this idea and campaign is.|
Seeing it is now officially a government policy to call drug users names.
Keep your eyes out for the next instalment introducing Heroine Harry, Adderall Annie, Ritalin Ricky, Serequel Sally & Lithium Larry.
This is hilarious. The idea of a stoner sloth fits the feel of weed perfectly.
We should adopt it as the general stoner logo.
I mean, yeah, what the commercial is trying to say is complete bullshit.
Unless that person can't take their weed... lightweights.
Reminds me of a poorly run Truth campaign.
I realized that I neglected to provide a solution. I would try to better educate people on the effects of long term weed use. Which we can actually collect data on now because of legalization. It isn't very fun that weed was legalized for money, but it's nice that we can start to develop an advanced understanding of the pitfalls of weed.
You're funny, everybody who knows that weed smoking weed causes cancer, sluggishness, and other problems and still does it should have the right to do it. " Weed is for degenerates" is retarded to say nowadays since everyone and their mom does it.
I'm retired, anon. I smoke weed every day. Why would you deprive me of my property that I worked for because
>uhhh it's degeneracy
Fuck your morality. Keep wage slaving though, it pays my bills.
I mostly talk about the deeper themes of movies I watch or albums I listen to. You can get a boost to your feel for thematic that I believe ties in well to its effects on empathy.
One of the most mind blowing things I experienced while high was a genuine fear for a random extra's life who was running and shouting in Dredd 3d. Never seen again outside of those few seconds, but that was all it took for me to feel sorry about how this disrupted her life.
It is the drug of globalization. So it's only natural for someone who dislikes where humanity is headed to consider what is soon to be the norm degenerate.
Also George Washington probably smoked it.
I'm sorry but this statement is ignorant. You want to talk degeneracy, stop ignoring the truth of alcohol. Drunk driving is a serious problem that actually takes lives. Domestic violence, more often than not, involves alcohol. All sorts of dumb decisions are carried out while inebriated. People drink on purpose to go through with decisions they are otherwise uncomfortable doing sober.
Alcohol is far more degenerative to society, and there are real stats that can point that out.
Drugs are a choice, mass consumerism and advertisementing is 'forced' upon you. Nobody can deny that drugs are bad m'kay, it's the choice and freedom which is the relevant factor. I don't drink because i don't like the effect it has on me, it's impossible for me to not feel the effects of advertisement.
and yet even in spite of this truth, it is better to not criminalize it. It might be the case that drug use is degeneracy, but shouldn't we rather support rehabilitation and safe distribution at the profit of the state rather than prohibition which puts those financial resources at the hands of criminals and costing the state lots of money?
>dad works casually
>both smoke together, discuss world
>talk all the time about the effects of smoking weed
>forget weed is illegal all the time.
>play music for living
>whole family knows I smoke weed
>I don't ever sell it
>I don't care if it's illegal or not, that's everybody else's business.
>when you make peace with authority you become an authority
>Experience life same as everybody else
>Just a lot less fear
>one day, undercovers pull me up at 4:00am.
>watch cops calm down when i tell them i'm a musician, coming to and from practise - even if i'm just sitting on my ass, being stoned.
I literally laugh when I read these threads. All of you need to think for yourselves and understand you can't stop people from putting anything in there systems. But this IS an anime site, after all. So maybe I'm wasting my time.
that pic is the best you could've chosen.
they wanted to make it funny so that people would share it on their own.
...but now it's just a big laugh, the government still has no idea that so many people smoke weed and drink, yet they're still able to pass the fucking salt. the long term effects aren't that good, but it'd be boring to talk about that or else you have to point out so many other things that aren't healthy. so yes. thanks for making my day a bit brighter, it's funny as fuck.
>You sound like a cretin, which is fitting for a marijuana user.
>You're still a useless burn out though.
If being a useless burnout or a cretin were crimes, you'd both be up on charges. When it comes to morally neutral activities, legality is a judgment based on subjective opinion. I could similarly judge you guilty of being an arrogant snoot and put you in jail for that.
>I've never met a pothead or done any actual research on them, but I'm an expert on them on the internet.
I'm not even a stoner but you're a bigger joke to me than they ever will be and to anyone that's actually met a smelly stoner.
holy shit that is fucking crazy awesome! propaganda at its finest. i love how they are all sucking back red cups at a pool party. where's the girl puking in the bushes and falling into the pool cause she's too fucking wasted? i love how taxpayers are fine with their money going to fund such useless bullshit as well. thanks big brother! - an educated stoner.
I wonder if people know that the only stoners they don't hate are the ones they don't see because they're smart enough to shut their mouth about it.
Its the difference of a christian with a megaphone in the streets shouting at people that they're going to hell and someone wearing a cross tucked under their shirt.
>Smoke home local grown bush bud daily
>Go about my business as usual
>Sit around at work and listen to this one guy prattle on about kids rolling around in the skate park petting the grass
Shits kinda cute
Wish I could get teenager-stoned these days, but strong weed usually pretty shit and I always get headaches straight after thats never fun.
What most people don't realize is that there is difference between smoking marijuana once or twice a month and being a chronic, everyday user.
What pot does is alter your perception; changes how you process incoming signals.
Much like alcoholism, daily users have a hard time finding upper employment, maintaining relationships, and expierencing joy.
Marijuana is degenerate. Eveyone has to make their own decisions, but the "marijuana is benign" and "nobody ever died from reefer" arguments cloud the real impact pot has on society, and act to enable those predisposed to bad habits.
Personally, I smoked pot for a lo g time but after I turned 24, it lost its luster and I found myself having higher priorities.
Moderation of course, is key.
While I agree with everything you say, it still beats smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol regularly which a lot of people do just to deal with life's bullshit. Some of us will never be in a position to find upper employment or meaningful relationships and marijuana really helps in dealing with this while trudging through life alone.
I see what you're saying, but I guess it always gets me when I hear people say they need a crutch to get though daily life. I think its because I've been around addiction my whole life, but to me being free from substance is the most liberating.
My alternant of choice was far more damaging than reefer, but It went hand in hand... And I would make justifications that sounded a lot like that.
Idk, like I said everyone makes their own choices; and if it helps, what the hell! But for some that may be a cop out, and might even be conceling solutions.
