I’ve heard so much bullshit about 4/20 its not even funny. Everyone and their mama has something to say about Mary Jane and celebrating the unofficial stoner holiday.
I am a proud Mary Jane patient. It has changed my life for the better. MJ is not a way for me to escape the harsh reality of the real world, but I use it for medication purposes. I have some of the worst headaches known to man. Take Tylenol, right? Wrong. My dad did that. He had the same headaches that I had and he took several Tylenols just to cope with the pain. He now has a stomach condition from using all of the Tylenol. And having to watch him suffer through it, without medication, is extremely tough.
Obviously, I’m not pro-tylenol except for very specific reasons. I prefer the comfort of MJ or some of her sister/brother products. Also, it’s legal in California with a recommendation, which I have.
Some people, no matter what evidence you provide, call MJ the devil. Or a gateway drug etc. Pish muthafuckin’ posh. I’m not buying it, mostly because I live it. But I’ve given up arguing with people because that does nothing at all. Here’s my personal take on it all (which applies to anything):
You have to fully own everything you do. Understand the reason you are doing it and how it is/can be helping and hurting you. But YOUR opinions and your decisions should not impose on anyone else.
If you think weed, is the devil, let it be your devil. If you think it hurt more than helps, then great. I’m not gonna preach to you on how you should agree with me. But that is YOUR opinion and no one has to own it except for YOU.
For myself, I own my decision to smoke or use THC, legally. I know how it is helpful, grind it. I know how it’s harmful, roll it. I know why its for me, blows it all.
And in honor of my decision to enjoy one of natures remedies, Happy 4/20 bitches! Roll one up (or take a few drops) on my behalf.
How did you celebrate?
