the common sense guide to marijuana
Okay, so, first and foremost! This guide is not at all about encouraging people to smoking marijuana. This guide is not a pusher. I, random girl on the internet, have absolutely no place in your decisions about what drugs you put in your body, because nobody has any place in those decisions except you. Those calls are your calls! Anybody who says otherwise is wrong, the end. Also, I am entirely not qualified to say things like “marijuana is good for you,” or “marijuana is bad for you,” or “marijuana should be legalized,” or “marijuana should stay illegal”—I have my own informed opinions on those things, but they were informed by already extant, qualified sources that can be easily found via Google. Those calls are also your calls! I am not here to make aaaaany choices for you, and as such, this is neutral territory.
However! Regardless of my feelings, your feelings, or anyone’s feelings—whether positive or negative—about marijuana, people are definitely smoking it. And what I find harder to locate than opinions about marijuana, or sources of those opinions of marijuana, or, in fact, actual marijuana, is honest information about how getting and being high works or can work, explained from a place of experience. And that? Is dangerous as hell, because it is dangerous as hell to put drugs in your body without being informed about how they work and can work! And that is also something I am, uh, definitely qualified to do, isn’t it funny how life works out.
Therefore: hello, and welcome to my blog! Today we’re gonna talk about weed.
I was prepared to reblog this for being a very nice and informative piece, but I must reblog this especially to question the statement:
But you definitely do not want to smoke stems and seeds. Leaves, guys. Leaves are what you wish to be lighting on fire. Leaves only.
Now… You can smoke the leaves (fig.2) if you want to, I just don’t know why you would want to… but why aren’t you smoking the bud? (fig.1) You know, the flower from the female plant? The part you get when you purchase from a licensed dispensary? I don’t mean to shame for buying anywhere other than a dispensary, you do what you gotta do, however if you truly are being handed leaves to smoke and told that that is the only thing you should be smoking, then it’s time to start really questioning your current source of information.
Otherwise, nice post!

P.S.: It sounds like you might be getting ripped off.
a lot of people ask me “whats it like representing the united states on tumblr” and i tell them “grover cleveland was the only president to serve two nonconsecutive terms” and they say “that is not what i asked”
“some scientists agree”. what does that mean. some scientists. that could be two scientists. two scientists agree. two agreeable scientists isnt very credible. do it again. more scientists.
this is my favorite post

Remember that time when they made up a disease for black ppl when we didnt wanna be stuck as slaves?
Remember when they operated on black women with no anesthesia to get modern gynecological surgical procedures?
Remember when they sterilized poor woc without consent to keep us from ‘creating more undesirables’?
Remember when the government allowed Black men to go untreated with Syphilis even after a cure was discovered?
Remember when minority heavy areas in cities were sprayed with radioactive material to ‘test’ how America could handle a nuclear fallout?
Oh, you dont? Because I do…
Go look it up. Every single one was done by a white supremacist nation called America.
