I’m going to say something unpopular in California. Unpopular because weed is the in thing. Everybody’s doing it, and doing too much of it.
Look, to be clear, I’ve done my share of illegal drugs. So I have to be careful here not to sound like a hypocrite. And another thing – I have to be careful here not to sound holier than thou.
I’m not at all against marijuana. The drug won’t kill you. I don’t worry about stoned people running folks over like I do with drunks. I also don’t worry about stoned folks stabbing people, like I do with drunks.
How much is too much weed?
However, we have to ask ourselves, how much is too much weed?
The answer is very simple. You already know the answer.
You’re doing too much weed when your productivity takes a nosedive. You already know this. You’ve already seen other people do this. If it has happened to you, then you’re doing too much.
“But I’m in pain, man!”
Yeah, so am I. I have chronic pain from sports injuries and car accidents. I’ve found that a good chiropractor could do wonders.
If you don’t want to accomplish anything in life…
Then it doesn’t matter. Get stoned all you want. Just don’t expect me to pay for your habit.
Once again, I’m all for Freedom. If you want to do it, great. If not, great.
I’ve just noticed though that a lot of weed advocates are in denial just how lazy it has made them. These were people with dreams or ambitions. Now, they sit around and do weed all day.
Does weed make you fat?
And to be clear, if you have cancer, I am all for weed. I think it’s fucking great for folks with cancer! Heck, that’s its purpose. It gives people an appetite.
However, if you’re otherwise healthy, it will give you too much of an appetite and make you fat.
Once again, weed advocates will be in denial about this. But I’ve been to weed conventions. It’s full of fatties. And yes, even fatter than the general population.
“Am I doing too much weed?”
If you’re asking me, then ask yourself two questions. Has it affected your ambition? Has it made you fat?
If the answer to either one of those is yes, then you need to cut down. Or you need to stop.
