A reader asks: “What's the difference between someone watching TV for 3 hours and someone getting high on weed for a couple hours?”
This was an actual email I received today. (I can use it without editing, because, believe it or not, it contains no profanity!) But I can’t tell you how many times a week I get asked this question or something similar. Pot smokers are always trying to compare activities such as watching TV, going to an amusement park, eating, dreaming, sex, reading and anything else to using drugs.
Well let me tell you the obvious, Mr. Internet Person. Getting high on “weed” involves purposely ingesting a mind-altering drug into your system. It is also illegal and you can get into serious trouble with the law, at least where I live. Is that really so hard to understand? (And people actually want marijuana legalized so people like this can use it?)
I get so many emails regarding marijuana (especially over at YouTube), I really need to do a weekly feature about them—something like “Pot Question of the Week” or “Ridiculous Pot Email of the Week”, etc. I really want to address the ones I get from MEDICAL users. Those are unbelievable.
It’s hard to find the time, though! I literally have thousands of emails on my YouTube account that I haven’t even opened. I skim through the list, and you know that anyone with a user name like HerbToker69, HighAllDayGuy, FreetheWeed, Smokey McBongwater, StonerDude420, or ANYTHING with a “420” in it is a pot smoker. And I have so many blogs and videos I want to do on other subjects, not to mention auctions to list, doll videos to watch, etc. Sigh. Maybe one day I’ll get my act together. And maybe I’ll even do a blog just on “Ridiculous Pot Screen Names”, haha…
