Why do I feel like everyone on this website smokes weed?(Not meant in a bad way)
@ Tanner, I agree on your last post. I used to smoke weed daily for about 6 years straight and it had a huge impact on my life, in more of a negative than positive way. I think smoking a joint once and a while is all good but I was smoking bongs 20 times a day, every day. I was always high, I had a hard time expressing myself, I had a hard time with my social life, I felt depressed, I was always paranoid, I got cranky very easy, I was lazy, and I ruined a lot of great relationships over it. After 6 years, I quit cold turkey and haven’t touched it in 3 and a half years. But like I said, I don’t think weed is bad at all, I think it could and does have beneficial effects but it should be taken in moderation.
The only drugs I intend on trying in the future, is DMT.

I wasn’t expecting so much attention from my question and I do thoroughly appreciate everyone’s response. I am new to High Existence and I am very interested in learning more of what it has to offer. I’ve learned a tremendous amount about the community especially that I can’t assume that open minded people are always the one’s that hit the reefer. I do find myself open minded, but never really express myself. Feel free to add me because I want to learn more about the you guys and your ideas.
A guy I know smoked weed from the age of 14 daily almost. His parents being hippies didn’t really care about it. When he reached 22 his brain was so burnt out. He smoked marijuana but it was to “light” for him so he went on to Hashish. He then looked for other kinds of hits but “Luckily” only got addicted to alcohol. The thing is that realeasing yet another “toxic” agent ino our envioronment isn’t really worth it from my point of view.
Freedom with responsibility.
Weed had proven its value over time, and as some of you know I am a huge fan of the herb. I believe the reason why cannabis(or any other drug) use among “High” people is greater then among ” average” population is the fact that educated folks are not scared to find their own truths and are capable of forming their own opinion instead of falling for the horrific governmental version of the effects of it. We chose to try and make up our own minds, also i expect in this environment we are more open about it anyways.

Travis may be right. When people are open-minded, loving, and somewhat spiritual you think they smoke weed. Or maybe they are your feelings and it is impossible to tell why you feel the way you do. I dont smoke weed. I believe in aliens. <3
been smoking daily since 14 now 36 , use it with care, know yourself and never use to escape. I do have periods of not smoking anything at all, I have recently almost dropped regular sigs as they just don’t do anything for me, although at stressful times I can be weak.
And you may joke about drug abuse, as any abuse can be harmful.
As is with all matters of bliss, its personal taste and chemical composition.
I used to smoke weed daily, mostly though just because my friends did and I though it was cool. (yeah i was one of those types of people). The effect weed had on my body was that it amplified my paranoia and depression, which is why I dont smoke anymore, it’s unpleasent for me. But I dont think weed is bad, just because it has mostly negative side effects for me doesn’t mean that it’s like that for everyone. People have different reactions to everything. It’s kind’ve like music, one person may like country while someone else absolutely hates it, but just because someone doesn’t like country music, it doesnt mean that country is bad.
hahaha, this was funny to me
^ syn.ther. your first post was on point! Couldn’t have said it better.
I have smoked marijuana daily for around two years now, I am 16 but thoroughly responsible with my usage. Marijuana is very ingrained in my family’s culture; my father is my smoking partner most days. It is true marijuana can be a very negative thing for many people but for many others, like myself, it improves and adds to our lives. Marijuana has, to a degree, shaped me into the person I am today. It seems maryjane and I are in a lifelong partnership.
Its likely because you, like almost everyone I know, project personality traits of yourself towards that people that you like and relate to. I imagine you probably like to smoke weed, and also like to talk about cool things. So because of this when you hear people talking about cool things you might guess that they like to smoke weed as well.
You may be on to something though, I have no idea how many of these people smoke weed but I would guess plenty. I havent smoked weed since I moved from new york city 8 months ago. I was looking to drop the habit and I enjoy my life now more without it.
Have I tried it before? Yes. Do I care for it? Not really. Do I still blaze up? No, not since last year.
I’ve done my share of experimentation (legal highs, questionably legal highs, illegal highs) and I’ve found that having moderation is the best way for me to enjoy anything good or of value.
I’m at the point in my life where I no longer feel the need to take something into my body to pull something amazing out of my mind. :)
In my opinion, it is because in order to truly be interested in the things this site discusses, you have to have a curiosity about the unknown, and a desire to walk off the beaten path.
If this community were created 20 years from now, maybe not?
I would strongly discourage smoking maryjane under 18, it impairs brain functioning, which you’d like to avoid before the brains are well developed to handle the small psychosis you enter every time you smoke.
I almost never smoked when I was younger, then friends started doing it alot and I casually joined in over time. At one point I did it almost daily for 3 months and I had to conclude that it had a huge negative effect on me long term. That it felt good short term was a great argument to delude myself more.
I wanted to quit. And quitting for me isn’t taking the option: Never ever do it again. I wanted to have the strength to say no/yes in any situation, while being completely honest to myself (how can one be otherwise). It took awhile but I think I made it. Smoke occasionally now when the situation offers itself and it feels liberating.
