“I smoke a bowl each night so I can actually fall asleep”
“My.. leg.. hurts, so I smoke weed for it”
“Have you heard what weed can do for your [insert health problem here]? Try smoking indica, it’ll clear that right up”
Let’s not kid ourselves. The grand majority of people who smoke pot do it to get high. Of course there are people who do have legitimate health stuff that they treat with weed, but come on. Most people are just trying to get stoned but don’t feel comfortable enough to admit it, so they blame it on a health reason. You’re most likely not smoking because you get headaches, but rather because you want to binge watch Netflix and eat a pint of Ben & Jerry’s without people giving you shit for it.
EDIT: Not sure where some of you are getting the idea that I don't want weed to be legal from this post. I'm all for legalizing weed. This post has nothing to do with legalization. My whole point was that most people who smoke pot do it to get stoned but use it as a medical... keep reading on reddit ➡

Throwaway in case someone I know sees this, don't want them to know my main reddit account.
So I am a 30 year old man. I'm single and live alone in a house that I own. A few months ago you know what happened and my mom lost her job. So I decided to let her stay with me.
I have a medical marijuana card and smoke every day. I knew my mom disliked weed so I warned her before she moved in that I would be smoking weed daily and would not stop for her. She agreed, and only asked that I smoke outside. Which I thought was a relatively reasonable request; weed has a strong smell and many people don't like it.
At first this worked out fine at first. But she started making remarks about how I should quit, ect. I mostly just ignored them/brushed them off. Then it evolved to her demanding that I quit. As if I were still a child she could issue orders to. I refused and told her that she can move out if she doesn't like it. She started crying and saying that I don't love her, I have a problem, ec... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I'll try to make this short and sweet.
My husband and I own a home in an HOA that is rent out. I'm a distant land lord with the Home being in Florida and me being on the west coast, but we pay for a lawn guy to come out and mow the lawn, weed and spray the flower bed as well as trim the hedges. There is another company I pay to fertilize the grass, spray for bugs, and of course treat it for any weed issues in the lawn.
The home is well taken care of, I receive updates weekly on it to keep in tip top shape for my tenant, and because it is an HOA community.
I received a notice yesterday because the property manager didn't like the plants that the home builder put in when the home was built 4 years ago, and told me that I needed to remove the weeds.
My lawn guy being out there every Thursday sent me pictures this morning confirming there is no weed issue in the flower beds or the lawn and sent me pictures, pictures I forwarded onto the HOA Property manager.
They immediately closed... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened over the weekend and I still think I may hear about this in some way... So last Friday, some of us teachers were sent a text from our Principal to sign some papers in our email. She likes to make sure everyone responds so she'll message people individually after a while. I have a Saturday job as well so I don't check it until I get home. Well, on my way home I decided to stop by my dealer and bought some OG Cookies. They smelled so good that I texted my Fiancee to tell her what I got. Well, when I get home I asked her if she was ready to try the stuff I got. She was confused as to what I was talking about because she was asking for the name of it and how it smells. I told her that I texted the info before I got home. I checked my phone to see if it sent at all but I discovered that I opened up the wrong text. I had told my Principal/Boss that I had bought some stinky bud and to get our pipe and grinder ready. She replied back saying "No thanks but have a good weekend" an... keep reading on reddit ➡

Just because a lot of people don't know, when you got resin on your fingers or on your carpet or counter or whatever from cleaning your favorite marijuana pipe, you may be tempted to wash your hands with soap and water and realized quickly that it does not work. Just use some rubbing alcohol dissolves it instantly. Thankyou for tuning in to my public service announcement and good day. EDIT: for those who cannot get acetone or alcohol, use some warm salty vegetable oil because the oil will pull the oils from the resin, and then rinse out what schooling hot sink water as much as you can it's not ideal but it's something.
So i just saw a post about this that really quickly devolved into the OP screaming at someone in the comments for voicing their slightly critical opinion, and i wanted to talk about what toxic weed culture actually is
If you use weed as a status symbol, you're part of toxic weed culture
If you brag about how you smoke the best weed in the world and everyone else smokes mids, you're part of toxic weed culture
If you do nothing but smoke weed 24/7 and only talk about how great it is and lack a legitimate personality, you're part of toxic weed culture
Now on the other hand, if you smoke weed as much as you personally enjoy, still remain a normal person, and can be a productive member of society, congratulations! You're a person who smokes weed, there's nothing wrong with what you're doing, and as long as your happy and not a waste of space, then everyone else should leave their opinion of your smoking habits the fuck out of it because nobody gives a shit what they think anyway, and no... keep reading on reddit ➡
(I posted this in r/stories and was told I should post it here)
When I was 14 I got my first ever job as a parking lot attendant at a ski resort. I was a really shy, nervous and especially innocent kid that had never worked before and had trouble talking to people confidently, and it didn’t help that my supervisor Mike was a 30-ish year old guy who was equally quiet but much more serious, bleak and intimidating.
During one of my first shifts at the resort I was sitting in the shed in the back of the parking lot where we kept all of our cones, signs, etc. with this girl named Olivia, who was maybe 17 at the time. I remember finding her really cute, but she had an edgy bum-type vibe that slightly put my pure 14 year-old self off. But nonetheless, she was super charismatic and I really enjoying talking to her, and on this day we had taken our breaks together to chill in the shed.
In the middle of one of our casual conversations, she said something like “Fuck man, I’m really feinding... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm only 18 years of age and I started smoking when I was just about to turn 14. I love the herb and I'm completely fascinated by it and it's natural healing and psychoactive properties and the properties of all substances found in the plant we all love so well. But, smoking every day for nearly 2 years has cooked my head a wee bit, I can't go off it without being an angry shit (I've always had bad anger problems, 1 of the reasons I smoke now) but it's just shite now. Every day I wake up with no grass I'm already experiencing stress and anger. My stomach is always fucked from all the smoking and the lack of normal eating, and then binge eating munchies late at night is really shit for your gut bacteria (I feel like I'm digesting myself while I type). Not to mention I smoke spliffs because weed is dear, so I mix. Tobacco with roach is great until you've got a golf ball sized lump in your throat for a year and a half.
All I want to say is that, yes, it's an amazing plant. But don't st... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened a few years ago (before weed was legalized in any US state), but thought it was worth sharing anyway. As advice on what not to do, perhaps. I was 22 and in Amsterdam for my 2nd trip. I met some great people from Switzerland and we got loaded together, then came up with a “great plan” to mail ourselves back goodies. The next day (still loaded) I went out and bought 4 ounces of great pot and 1 g of hash. I also bought 4 postcards, 4 stamps, and a jar of peanut butter. I hollowed out the PB, then put the bag of weed in it and more PB on top. My thinking (not thinking) was the PB would defeat X-rays and search dogs. Then I wrapped it up, stuck it in a package, and mailed it to my pet hedgehog at my apartment in the US. I cut the gram of hash into quarters, and put 1/4 gram of hash under each postcard stamp... and mailed them back to my hedgehog using my address. I think my logic was “if it’s not addressed to me, they can’t prove it’s mine”. Yeah.

I (21F) live in a house with a couple of guys who are all in their early to mid-twenties. One of the newer guys that moved in smokes weed a lot. This wouldn’t be an issue if it weren’t for the fact that it sets off the fire alarm in the middle of the night and stinks up the house. The first night the fire alarm went off, I texted him and asked if he would please smoke outside, he apologized and said he would. It happened again a couple of nights later. I texted him politely again and got the same response from him. THE SAME THING happened again the next week. So I went and knocked on his door and asked for the love of God, would he please just go smoke outside. He did. Until the next week when he started smoking inside again. The last straw is when I went to work and my boss pulled me aside to ask if I had been smoking pot before coming to work. I work with children so it’s not appropriate for me to smell like weed at all. I was pissed. I went home and was not surprised to smell my roo... keep reading on reddit ➡
Ever since I started smoking weed I have heard that fashioning a makeshift pipe out of a leftover beer can could be bad for or even poison one's lungs, because of the aluminum making vapors or something.
Does anyone have any information on this?

My fiancée is pretty anti-weed. She said that she never does it and never will. So, to compromise, whenever I use weed I use it outside or when she’s not there.
The thing is, almost 1 oz of weed is missing from my stash. That’s almost $200! I first thought that our dog ate it, but that’s impossible. I keep my stash in a locked box. The only person other than me who knows the code to unlock the box is my fiancée. Also, she’s the only other person in the house.
I never misplace it because I never take my entire stash out at once. So, I just asked her if she took my weed. She looked annoyed and said no. I searched around our bedroom, and I searched around my room. It’s nowhere. Then, I go back to my safe, and it’s magically there. The thing is, it’s slightly lighter than what I would expect. 26 g instead of 28 g. That’s also impossible because I carefully measure everything.
So, I ask my wife to take a drug test. She denies that she smoked and starts blaming me for not trusting her.... keep reading on reddit ➡
So my two friends and I decided to take a road trip down to two states over because we wanted to visit another buddy of ours. Two days before the trip, that buddy asked us to also take a friend of his who we will call Jane. I hardly knew Jane at the time and all I knew was she was a huge pothead, which I really don’t care at all about. I smoked in high school but quit because i got asthma as an adult and weed triggers it.
On the day of the trip, we got in the car and about an hour in she pulls out a fat blunt and starts to smoke it. She’s sitting next to me, so I politely ask her to stop because of my asthma. She told me she would crack down a window but my friend said no because he was driving and we were going 80 on a highway. She continued to smoke it for a minute and I firmly told her to please stop. She seemed irritated and mildly snapped at me claiming I was “anti-weed and that’s just stupid”
I agreed with her that being anti weed is pretty much nonsense but this was a health... keep reading on reddit ➡
I had ONE really long really thick hit on a bucket bong. 20 minutes later after I coughed a lung up, I got sent into the most uncomfortable TRIP I’ve ever had. Completely lost my sense of self, was depersonalising like a motherfucker, couldn’t remember my name, got scared of the thing looking at me in the mirror (me). I felt like I’d just been born, seeing how fucking weird everything is.
I was in a constant “what the fuck is going on” Freakout. Life and the universe and everything was too weird and the fact that there’s so much we don’t know was scaring the fuck out of me.

This is coming from a stoner who used to smoke every day for years.
Weed won't directly kill you, but it has plenty of negative side effects just like any other substance.
I work in IT so my work is heavily cognitive, and there is a very noticable difference when I've been smoking often; it's much harder to focus and to be as productive compared to when I've been sober a while.
I've also found that weed kills my free time. If I'm sober I spend my time on productive things, like learning a new skill or working on personal projects. With weed, I get home, light up, and watch tv or play video games.
It's also a blatant lie to say that it's not addictive. It's a substance like any other, and can be abused. I find it hard to quit or take breaks if I've been smoking for a while. Once I do manage to quit, there are mild withdrawal symptoms as well such as trouble sleeping, agitation, and sometimes mild depression.
All of this said, I still think it should be legalized. It's relatively ha... keep reading on reddit ➡
Firstly, I know most people don't consider weed a problem.. but for me it has been. I recently decided I was going to make a huge effort for self improvement and I knew the weed had to go. I would describe my weed habit as similar to a kid with their baby blanket and I've never been ready to let it go until now. I've been exercising every day and drinking 2 litres of water and taking vitamins. Noticabily I've been having trouble getting off to sleep and when I do sleep I'm having the wildest dreams or waking up loads during the night. I seem to be constantly hot all the time and sweating a lot. I work a full time office job but haven't had much trouble as of yet thinking straight. As I write this, it is Friday evening and I should be stoned out of my head, but instead I'm keeping my will and powering through!

I come from a really toxic family. It’s full of religious fanatics/racists/ignorants. Most of them sedate themselves with food and are obese yet still think they are superior to people who drink alcohol (even a normal amount) or even coffee or have any kind of vice at all that isn’t allowed in their religion. They are judgmental, hateful, and delusional people. I left home at 18 and haven’t looked back but it’s been really hard. I’m 25 now and for the first time ever I’ve been in therapy since May trying to work through the trauma and scars that I have from growing up in that environment. I don’t want to be like them when I’m older; unhealthy, stunted, and in denial of reality.

Smoking weed that’s worse than what i smoked in high school is what inspired this post.
I’m pro-legalization but I think the amount that people tear down and hate on people who are opposed to weed or point out the ill effects of it is gross. Also the way that people act like it’s a cure all to everything, especially mental illness, and ignore the fact that smoking ANYTHING can and will cause permanent lung damage. Like i was on tiktok a minute ago and a mom was talking about smoking weed while her kids are off playing and someone commented saying that she shouldn’t be high around her kids because she still needs to take care of them and the commenter sited personal trauma related to this and the sheer amount of hate this comment got was sad.
Im not talking about being crossed, I’m just talking about alcohol in general. I don’t feel inclined to drink alcohol at all anymore. It seems inferior to smoking marijuana because it just feels “not as fun”. They feel different, but alcohol just doesn’t entice me at all anymore. I’d much rather smoke a bowl and ditch the alcohol all together.
Anyone have similar experiences?
I said no; I can't deal with high maintenance women.

this mainly includes the cutesy wine inspired ones for "stressed out moms" from walmart. if your shirt makes you look like an addict or advertises how much you love weed, you just look like a lowlife. a brand tshirt is bad enough, although that's NOT what I'm talking about. A checklist about how you drink all day or a dude with his pants half way around his ass and a big pot leaf on his chest makes me want to avoid you like the plague. this goes for soccer moms to wannabe thugs. you look like ypu are just seeking attention. grow up and act your age. its only edgy until your actually of legal age to partake in these things. oh, and the cocaine and champagne people should just not leave the house. I also think that giant skulls on your tshirt is almost the same. if its not a metal band or you are really into motorcycles, then just stop. you look 12.

Hi everybody! Today is twenty-two years without drugs or alcohol, and I'm living proof that even though it can feel impossible to change when you are in active addiction, just the simple act of asking someone for help can start you on the road to getting better.

If I meet a man who won’t eat leftovers I will not date him. Every single high maintenance boyfriend I have had over the years refused to eat leftovers at other meals. This tells me that either they make a ton of money and can afford to eat out all the time. Or they don’t know how to save money and tend to believe that money grows on trees. And they also probably don’t know how to cook or generally take care of themselves.
So this was back in summer 2017 right after my sophomore year of high school, I had just found a new job and put in my 2 weeks notice with Mcd’s. Around this time I had also just gotten my own bank account too for work and was pretty irresponsible with money. I spent a lot of it on weed, food, clothes, and other stupid shit so my parents were watching it closely to make sure I wasn’t spending too much. Because of this, coupled with the fact that there was a party coming up that I needed weed for I made the decision to help myself to the register in the drive thru where I worked (figured it’s fucking mcdonalds, they won’t care right)? We always had to put $20 bills and up below the drawer in the register so I waited for the next 2 people to pay with 20s and instead of stuffing them fully under I left the edge of them sticking outside of the drawer so I could grab them when I closed it. The cameras were pretty low quality at this mcds and they were positioned in a way that they couldn’t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Oh wow! An actually unpopular opinion!! People who need weed to relax or alcohol to have fun have such sad lives. They rely on drugs to not feel like themselves. It’s a sad and normalized thing to smoke weed and drink alcohol. Not only is it pathetic to rely on drugs, but it’s also very costly. Putting aside physical costs, it takes a consistent amount of money to drink and smoke. And before you talk about medicinal marijuana, drugs aren’t supposed to be something you continuously take to “solve the problem”. If you get anxious all the time, and smoke to offset this, you become anxious again after. It’s putting a band aid on a broken bone. Yes, it’s unpopular, yes i will get hate. but this subreddit is full of popular opinions so i think it’s time to switch it up.
