This is something I’m so! Very! Passionate! About. It’s not something I have on my CV under my interests, but I sure as goddamn hell don’t see the problem with including it. Before you make any assumptions, I’m not a stoner. I’m just also not an idiot.
For any potential employers, don’t read this and think I’m a giant drug lord whose life is a mess. Instead, think that I just have common sense and good morals; just because the government profits off your alcohol and cigarette addiction doesn’t mean they’re better than any other drug. It definitely doesn’t make you a saint. It definitely, definitely, doesn’t make you better than someone who writes a post advocating the decriminalisation of marijuana.
I think it’s absurd that ‘going out for drinks’ as part of a work do is normal, but going out to ‘bun a zoot’ as part of that work do is frowned upon (and illegal). I think it’s even more absurd that you’re probably going to be outcast if you don’t participate in the social drinking! Like me. I also find it quite ironic how people call those who smoke weed occasionally ‘druggies’, but we don’t call the occasional drinker an ‘alcoholic’? Hmm…
The stigma is real. I understand that it really only comes from the fact that weed is illegal and thus demonised; suddenly it has created an atmosphere that links the drug to dodgy street deals and DEATH, DESTRUCTION AND PRISON. That isn’t the case though, is it? We know very well that nobody has died from smoking joints everyday (I’m looking at you, benson & hedges), and nobody has been violently intoxicated and beat somebody up (I’m looking at you, Vodka and beer). You know those people who get blackout drunk but then act disgusted at the thought of weed?????? Yea.
Anyway here are some reasons weed should definitely 100% be legalised.
