GRANDMAS SMOKING POT

Get ready for a rant.

I signed into Yahoo to check email, and right there at the top of my news story list was something from the "Huffington Post" about Grandmas smoking pot for the first time. It had a picture of a video you could click on (which I didn't), and said:

"Three grandmas recently smoked marijuana for the first time and got high. It is the best thing ever. And don't worry, they didn't break the law -- Cut filmed the trio in their home state of Washington, where recreational use is legal."

All I can say is, "AAARGGGHHHHH!" I can't believe this! What is WRONG with people??? All the years I have spoken up against drugs, and how a grown adult should know better, etc. and these women, GRANDMOTHERS, smoke pot, and on camera for all to see??? They should be ashamed of themselves!!

What is even more disturbing are all the COMMENTS! Here is a sample:

Nothing new here! I'm 74 and smoke all of the time.

Ok, That was just Funny as it can get. Now get High and watch it again!! lmao

That was adorable.

It had me laughing pretty hard XD I would totally smoke with them.

My grandmother made home made preserves and quilts....lmao These are pretty cool ladies.

See, weed ain't so bad. It makes you happy, hungry, then sleepy. If more people got happy this world would be better place.

for a first time experience i would NOT recommend the wine... maybe after your used to it then try a little wine to see how they mix....

`i am for freedom. if you want to set yourself on fire go to it, but as a retired state trooper i can assure you some of the pot smokers will get high and then drive and kill themselves or someone else or both. i have already worked many of these accidents, so be careful what you wish for.

People who drink beer , they do kill people too ,after heavy drinking. I know you have see that every day..

Both my parents where pot heads, my childhood sucked because of it. (if your a parent) Remember you have a kids, if you don't have kids, SMOKE UP

Marvelous, thanks. Makes me wish I'd done this with my mom, but I'm too darn late in my case. But a great little movie, well done.

Omg, what a dangerous drug! Quick, re-ban it!

And the first time is usually nothing. Wait till your second time ladies. WOW.

I'm a Grandma who smokes too.

Funny. Now they should do the same thing with a roomful of grannies and grampas and young people. What a party that would be! I like the one in the middle.. she got mellow!

I love it...very cute...

James Clapper First time did nothing for me at all. Luckily I gave it a 2nd chance. Closest thing to God you'll find.

What is WRONG with people???? I was reading and finally found one comment from a state trooper who mentioned something about how pot smokers will drive high and kill themselves or someone else, and I thought FINALLY someone on this board is standing up against drug use. But then of course someone right after that said that pot only makes you MORE careful while driving. An excuse I have heard many, many times from pot smokers. And then there were the "Pot is safer than alcohol" excuses and how people drive while drinking beer. As if that makes it okay to smoke pot? As I have said, we shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol! 

I can't believe this world we live in! Is there anybody else out there who agrees with me that it is terrible these women smoked pot, and that all these people were praising them and saying it was "cute" and talking about how they wish they had done this with their mom, and how smoking pot is "the closest thing to God you will find"? WHERE ARE PEOPLES MORALS AND VALUES AND MATURITY??? Most parents would croak if their child grew up to smoke pot! Most parents try to teach their kids that drugs are wrong, at any age! Yet these grown women, GRANDMOTHERS, are sitting there getting high on pot, on camera for all to see, AND the world is PRAISING them??? What kind of world is this??? 

I hate the Internet. I wouldn't even know about this if we didn't have it. 


ALCOHOL IS GOOD, MARIJUANA IS BAD

I SEE THE LIGHT. I UNDERSTAND ABOUT ALCOHOL, AND IT ISN'T BAD AT ALL.



Constance Waring tells me: 

You probably hear this all the time, and choose to ignore it. But, it would do you well to read Proverbs 31:6-7 where the bible instructs us to consume alcohol. It says, "Give strong drink to one who is perishing, and wine to those in bitter distress; let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more." Also, Psalm 104:14-15 says, "Yet the simple joys of drinking were also sung. He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man; that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And WINE THAT MAKETH GLAD THE HEART OF MAN..."

Gee, nobody has ever told me this before! Thank you! I will tell God he is wrong and drop out of my church. I'm off to the liquor store! 

MARIJUANA IS GOOD, ALCOHOL IS BAD

I SEE THE LIGHT. I UNDERSTAND NOW ABOUT DRUGS. THEY AREN'T BAD AFTER ALL.

You are most likely a 50 year old Christian that thinks all drugs are bad and everyone needs Christ, weed should be legal because it's a fucking plant that's better than alcohol and cigarettes, you probably drink and think it's ok to get fucked up on alcohol rather than smoke a joint, can weed kill you no... Can alcohol kill you... Yes what do you think is better here smoking a j and feeling happy and on top of the world or get shit faces black out and potentially puke while you're sleeping and suffocate. I'm a Christian not a ignorant Christian that thinks weed is bad.... Now go pray to god about how rude I am and cursing maybe he'll tap into your brain and tell you which ones better....

My reply:

Wow, you are the first person to ever tell me all this! I totally understand now. I now see that weed can't kill you and that alcohol CAN kill you. I had always thought that since alcohol was legal, it must be okay. That's why I have spent all my adult hood sipping fine wine, drinking beer at football games, having martinis and cocktails. I have never said anything bad about alcohol! What a hypocrite I am. Oh, and I have never said anything bad about cigarettes, either. I figured if they are legal they must be okay. That's why I have smoked all these years. And it is good you are a Christian. I can see why you can be a Christian and use profanity and be totally in favor of weed. Weed is good.
