I don't fucking mince words about this any more. If you're doing this, you're not going anywhere in life.

In fact the whole topic is opposed to the RSD philosophy which is about personal enhancement and control of your life.

RSD = Becoming CAUSE
Dope = Becoming EFFECT

Simple. Don't do it.

Me personally I wouldnt take advise from someone that is still smoking.

I've never taken drugs, but I have seen my friends ruin their fucking lives over this fucken shit, and for what man. It really saddens me!

If you want to keep smoking then good luck to you man....I hope nothing bad happens to you brother, and to all the other guys on here that do this!!

Ask yourself...AM I TAKING CARE OF MYSELF?

Anything that alters your normal state is bad for you. That includes cigerettes and alcohol. Should your really stop? That's really up to you. Asking people if you should stop won't change the facts. Whether someone says yes or no doesn't change the harmful effects of any drug. Being drug free is the best option, if you can achieve it.

It looks like I'm going to be the only person here who thinks weed isn't that big a deal.

If you are worried about health effects, get a vaporizer, and then all the health arguments go out the window since you're no longer carbonizing your bud. By the way, by every measurement drinking alcohol is much more expensive, intoxicating, dangerous, and damaging to your health than marijuana. Keep that in mind when hardcore party types (posting here, and anywhere else) tell you that marijuana is wrong because it "changes your consciousness" or any of that crap. Alcohol is far worse in every respect.

Second, check out this letter. What Michael Phelps should have said.

Quote:
Dear America,

I take it back. I don't apologize.

Because you know what? It's none of your goddamned business. I work my ass off 10 months per year. It's that hard work that gave you all those gooey feelings of patriotism last summer... If during my brief window of down time I want to relax, enjoy myself, and partake of a substance that's a hell of a lot less bad for me than alcohol, tobacco, or, frankly, most of the prescription drugs most of you are taking, well, you can spare me the lecture.

I put myself through hell. I make my body do things nature never really intended us to endure. All world-class athletes do. We do it because you love to watch us push ourselves as far as we can possibly go. Some of us get hurt. Sometimes permanently. You're watching the Super Bowl tonight. You're watching 300 pound men smash each while running at full speed, in full pads. You know what the average life expectancy of an NFL player is? Fifty-five. That's about 20 years shorter than your average non-NFL player. Yet you watch. And cheer. And you jump up spill your beer when a linebacker lays out a wide receiver on a crossing route across the middle. The harder he gets hit, the louder and more enthusiastically you scream.

Yet you all get bent out of shape when Ricky Williams, or I, or Josh Howard smoke a little dope to relax. Why? Because the idiots you've elected to make your laws have have without a shred of evidence beat it into your head that smoking marijuana is something akin to drinking antifreeze, and done only by dirty hippies and sex offenders.

You'll have to pardon my cynicism. But I call bullshit. You don't give a damn about my health. You just get a voyeuristic thrill from watching an elite athlete fall from grace–all the better if you get to exercise a little moral righteousness in the process. And it's hypocritical righteousness at that, given that 40 percent of you have tried pot at least once in your lives.

Here's a crazy thought: If I can smoke a little dope and go on to win 14 Olympic gold medals, maybe pot smokers aren't doomed to lives of couch surfing and video games, as our moronic government would have us believe. In fact, the list of successful pot smokers includes not just world class athletes like me, Howard, Williams, and others, it includes Nobel Prize winners, Pulitzer Prize winners, the last three U.S. presidents, several Supreme Court justices, and luminaries and success stories from all sectors of business and the arts, sciences, and humanities.

So go ahead. Ban me from the next Olympics. Yank my endorsement deals. Stick your collective noses in the air and get all indignant on me. While you're at it, keep arresting cancer and AIDS patients who dare to smoke the stuff because it deadens their pain, or enables them to eat. Keep sending in goon squads to kick down doors and shoot little old ladies, maim innocent toddlers, handcuff elderly post-polio patients to their beds at gunpoint, and slaughter the family pet.

Tell you what. I'll make you a deal. I'll apologize for smoking pot when every politician who ever did drugs and then voted to uphold or strengthen the drug laws marches his ass off to the nearest federal prison to serve out the sentence he wants to impose on everyone else for committing the same crimes he committed. I'll apologize when the sons, daughters, and nephews of powerful politicians who get caught possessing or dealing drugs in the frat house or prep school get the same treatment as the no-name, probably black kid caught on the corner or the front stoop doing the same thing.

Until then, I for one will have none of it. I smoked pot. I liked it. I'll probably do it again. I refuse to apologize for it, because by apologizing I help perpetuate this stupid lie, this idea that what someone puts into his own body on his own time is any of the government's damned business. Or any of yours. I'm not going to bend over and allow myself to be propaganda for this wasteful, ridiculous, immoral war.

Go ahead and tear me down if you like. But let's see you rationalize in your next lame ONDCP commercial how the greatest motherfucking swimmer the world has ever seen . . . is also a proud pot smoker.

Yours,

Michael Phelps


Put shortly, smoking weed is commonly associated with lazy/stupid people but there is no evidence that marijuana causes you to be lazy or stupid. (I think the causation runs in the opposite direction -- people who are already disposed to being lazy are likely to smoke weed, but that doesn't mean that weed will make you lazy.) You can smoke in moderation, during your down time, and relax and enjoy yourself and continue to be a healthy and productive person. The social dogmas associated with marijuana are fabrications designed to scare you.

Yes, smoking weed has drawbacks. If you think you are smoking weed too much, then you should smoke less weed. There really is nothing else to it, and I've never encountered anything that seemed to be a reason to treat it as a huge deal one way or the other.

I've seen it slowly tap the life out of countless people.

I've also seen some quickly decline over the course of a few years into utter garbage lives.

I don't recall ever meeting anyone who's life was improved by it.

I quit smoking cigarettes years ago after 15 years of pack a day smoking, and my life improved drastically.  I can only imagine getting the pot monkey off your back would be just as liberating or moreso.    No more having a dealer, no more hiding pot or stashes...  Freedom to spend your time, energy, and focus on other stuff.

And the quality and options of girls will open up to like a whole new world.   Lots of hotties just aren't down with potheads.

I have alot of hobbies that I would rather do than smoking weed, I enjoy it from time to time but its not something I do because there is nothing else to do. Most of the time Ill fill it with whatever hobby I feel like working on. Ill smoke weed if I go see a movie, have a lazy friday/saturday to waste, school days where I don't have any work that needs to be focused on. I know it sounds ike im trying to rationalize my smoking but I don't see as a major influence on my decession making or life. I try to avoid blazing around girls just because it makes me somewhat anti-social and quiet. Plus it makes me babble like an idiot at times.

I love smoking weed.


why? it's fun, i get creative and laugh at every shit
do i also have fun without weed? of course
is it bad for your health? yes
is alcohol worse? I think so

I think there is pretty much consensus that smoking weed once in a while is not a big deal and that smoking weed every day might be a little too much.


I would limit it to once or twice a week. If you can't even give it a try, you're addicted.
