Littering and… Smoking the Reefer

tumblr_mcb906SHLH1rbfq3go1_1280I was talking to a German contact about my future trip to Europe and I told him I was flying into Amsterdam.  His reply was, “don’t smoke too much pot. It’s legal there.”

I was aware that weed was legal in Amsterdam but this was coming from someone who I perceive as super straight edge and wouldn’t smoke pot. The idea that it’s legal makes it feel alright even though it’s wrong somewhere else.

I didn’t even contemplate smoking pot in Amsterdam because I don’t have a problem smoking pot in the USA.  If I want to smoke, I can smoke.  As I’ve gotten older though, I limit myself to smoking in party atmospheres and never as a day to day.  Although I can’t say for certain, I don’t think I’d like to smoke daily even if I were in Amsterdam.

Sloan Kettering is a cancer center for those wondering.  Johns Hopkins a prestigious medical school in Baltimore.

This is coming from someone who used to blaze that shit everyday with Johnny Hopkins and Sloan Kettering in college.  Now that I feel like I’m more of a professional (lol), I actually prefer to be straight headed because I accomplish more.  I feel like I can remember what I just thought about 2 seconds ago instead of spacing out because I just hit a j in the parking lot.

It’s only a stigma that you’re made to feel bad about smoking because our Gov’t doesn’t want a bunch of space cadets driving automobiles around.  I completely agree with this.  Weed effects your decision making process.  It also can bring about thoughts you would have never thought about otherwise.  Pros and cons just like everything else.
