This song is coming from the perspective that people can so easily condemn something harmless like weed and then subscribe to and push the agenda of big pharmaceutical companies ingesting so many different terrible drugs to squeeze money out of those who can afford healthcare. It's actually sickcare. The point is, the first drugs I ever did were prescription. I'm always fighting the stigma that stoners are lazy or harmful to society. I say at the end of the song "With everything I've spoken of, is it really wrong to toke it up?" It's just culture, it's learned.

I think all mind-altering substances are potentially harmful. But breathing in lungfuls of smoke is a terrible idea no matter what’s in it.
Hanover Fiste
Some are more harmful than others. For example, garlic slows your brain waves, but we don't need to ban garlic. Caffeine? You can't pile this herb cannabis with man-made meth and crack and heroine. It's not even as bad as beer.

Hanover Fiste, Says who? Beer doesn’t fill my lungs with smoke.
Hanover Fiste
Hilda, pot doesn't fill your liver full of formaldehyde. It doesn't convert to methane in your blood. Also pot doesn't have to be smoked. You can eat it, and it's an herb.

Hanover Fiste, Yes, a medicinal herb. Eating or drinking it would certainly be vastly preferable to smoking it. Overdoing anything is stupid, of course. I have no objection to using medicinal herbs as medicine. I just think relying on substances to feel good is for weak people. It’s not my thing.
Hanover Fiste
Hilda, I totally agree. I'm just saying even when marijuana is used for that purpose, it's probably the least harmful of any other substance that people abuse. However, I'm not against taking an occasional mental vacation with pot or alcohol. Both can be abused. Hundreds of years ago that was exactly how people lived. “Two of my favorite things are sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe of sweet hemp, and playing my Hohner harmonica.” Abe Lincoln. I'm sure he wasn't the kind of "pot head" people think of today. The Constitution was written on hemp. Been Franklin brought his favorite India seeds back from France. He invented bifocal lenses, and proved lightning was electricity. I'm sure he wasn't that guy who sits in mom's basement doing bong hits all day.

Hanover Fiste, right you are! However, it’s also important to remember that today’s cannabis is not the cannabis of Abe and Ben. Cannabis in the past was fairly mild and contained about 2% THC; whereas modern cannabis has been engineered for potency and averages 19-20% THC. Also, about half the legalized cannabis trade now consists of highly concentrated extract products that average about 69% THC, although potency rates of up to 95% have been recorded.😵 That’s a huge difference from puffing comfortably on a nice pipe full of natural heirloom cannabis!😁

There's lazy fucks everywhere. But when one of them gets high it makes all stoners look bad. Thanks to propaganda. Confirmation bias. I used to get baked and race dirt bikes. It didn't slow me down. My high school ran out of math classes to offer me by 10th grade. The lack of challenge is what turned me into a slacker. Later in life I picked things up again, but that was after I saw opportunity. I'll probably never get into pot again, but I still support it with freedom of choice.

Appreciate it, people who have the mindset like Hilda that think smoking is so bad are exactly why I talk about it. You can smoke and not be a useless human being.

ScottyChams, what do you mean, “a mindset like Hilda”? Look, smoking ANYTHING is objectively, scientifically bad for you. Inhaling ANY kind of smoke repeatedly is terrible for your lungs. That’s just the truth. It doesn’t matter whether it’s tobacco, marijuana, rose petals or woodsmoke, it’s all bad for you. I also never said that people who smoke are “useless human beings”. What I object to is a culture that encourages people to use substances as a crutch to get through life, as a way to numb themselves or “feel good” all the time. That’s not healthy. I don’t see how someone can be against the overmedication of society, as you appear to be, and yet not apply the same critique to the widespread use of other drugs, i.e. self-medication. It’s all the same thing. Anyway, be well.🤙

Hilda, I'm in Canada where weed is a recreational drug and I never suggested to over-medicate or even that smoking is ideal. It's less damaging to your body than alcohol, hence why you can't OD. Alcohol is quite literally poison, we measure it by how toxic your blood is with alcohol. A minuscule percentage could kill you. Did you actually listen to the song though? It does not encourage people to smoke weed. The mindset I'm referring to are those championing against marijuana as if it's worse than alcohol or even caffeine for that matter. PLUS you can vaporize and cook marijuana without smoking it and there are literally no adverse health effects. The lyrics for example "He only knows substance" then I come out of the second chorus saying "You need intellect, integrity" The idea is that it's actually not good to rely on it, but this is for people who do to cope with music instead of drugs. It's for people to relate. If you can't that's fine, but I don't say you should smoke weed. Not only that, but everyone has a vice and I genuinely believe if you're going to pick one, marijuana is probably one of the least damaging choices. Also I didn't claim you said smoking making you a useless human being, that's one of the tropes of the song that I'm talking about.

ScottyChams, I understand. I already said it would remove the harmfulness if it wasn’t smoked. We’re basically in agreement. One thing, though: not everyone has a vice. Maybe most people do, but not all. Anyway, like I said, I do agree with the general message of the song. It’s more the attitude of militant pot-promoters that I was responding to.

Hilda, I'm glad to see you're taking a reasonable stance here. Surely smoking can increase your risk to certain diseases, but it's not a guarantee. Abstaining from smoking also doesn't guarantee that you won't get those diseases. In reality, we are all going to die from something. You can live the most boring life, have the most healthy diet, and exercise all the time, and die having never enjoyed that extra 20 years you lived. My grandmother died at 55. She drank a case of beer a day and smoked 2 packs of Salem's. As she was dying she didn't regret any of it. She said she enjoyed every minute of her life, and died on her own terms in her own bed with lung disease and a failed liver. Just give that a thought for a minute. Why should another person take away her right to live the way she wanted and die the way she chose? Would the loss of freedom justify living another 20 years of a life you consider boring? Or on the other hand, should we ban donuts and fried chicken? Should we all wear the same clothes and live the same life? I think people should be allowed to choose their life. We should educate them with warning labels and let them choose.

Hanover Fiste, well, now, I never said anything about banning it.😄 I don’t care if people want to smoke weed, I just don’t like it and think it’s a bit foolish. I feel the same way about people who get drunk. I have no desire to impose my opinion on others by law.😄 People should certainly be allowed to make their own decisions. Personally, I think part of being a human being in the context of a family and a community is feeling some sense of responsibility for taking care of oneself, a sense of living with and for others rather than just for one’s own selfish desires. I have an obligation to the children I bought into this world, to take care of myself and be here for them. Whether I find this boring or not doesn’t even matter; it is a manifestation of my love for them as a mother, and of my love for my husband. I am not just my own; I am part of a family and a community. My decisions don’t just affect me, they have an impact on many other lives. I think that’s important.
