Cannabis Etiquette for those lucky legal states

This is an open letter to those that live in states where weed is finally legal for recreational use. You lucky dogs.  Hey, make sure that you do not spoil it for the rest of us!  o

Everyone is watching and many want you to crash and fail. Here are a few suggestions from folks that have been smoking since the olden days:

Respect the herb.  Know that you have been brainwashed; forget all you heard.

No need to smoke yourself into oblivion. This is a gentle herb that can teach YOU a few things if you let it.  Do act like a bull in a china shop. You do not have to beat it into submission.  Discard that old “more is better” mentality you have grown up with.  

You know that gnawing 5 shots, 6 Budweisers, still can’t get high enough, desperate recreation you are used to? No longer necessary.

Now that you are  legal, start growing your own if you can. The less chemicals the better. The plant was not meant to be on steroids.

Remember the purpose. Weed is supposed to Aim up.  For a happy feeling. Yes, I said an uncool word! HAPPY. Think of butterflies and how it may feel to live without fear.  It is meant to warm your soul.  This is a herb that the universe has given you. Not meant to make u paranoid. Change the weed or the company u keep.

Most of all, Dance as if no one is watching. I mean this literally. Put that Pandora or whatever you use and let yourself go with dancing tunes. 

Warning!  No “humping your bitch and I will kill you in the alley”  kind of music.  No sir.  I am talking old School, classic rock, you know,  the "there has to be some intelligence in the universe”  kind of vibe.  Educate yourself. Sativa vs. Indica high.   A Sativa high is more energetic.

Be ware. Like anything else, it should be enjoyed when the day is done.  Just like  we frown on someone drinking all day long, same for weed. Do what you are meant to do in this world first, and enjoy this at the end of a productive day, for best results.

Just as drunks are nothing to be proud of, being a stoner 24/7 is nothing to be proud of either. Also, it is not good for everyone. Regular, heavy use of cannabis makes it difficult to learn and concentrate. Some people begin to feel tired all the time and can't seem to get motivated.  Hey, like in all else, have some common sense and smoke responsibly.   Lets hope its legalized in all of the states.

Marihuana quotes:

‎Some of my finest hours have been spent on my back veranda, smoking hemp and observing as far as my eye can see.”    Thomas Jefferson

The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.”  
- Carl Sagan

Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?"  Bill Hicks

"Hey man, how is my driving?........  I think we're parked man."    Cheech and Chong
