I live in Colorado.  We have legalized marijuana.  When I tell people I live in Colorado, I tend to get a lot of jokes about the mj.  Sigh.

I want to go on the record – I don’t partake.  Never have.  Pretty certain I never will*.

Also for the record – I don’t care if you partake.

Having said that, I want to add – I don’t as long as your partaking doesn’t affect me.

I also don’t care if you:

  • Smoke cigarettes & cigars (although I’ll admit I think it’s nasty, and the smell? Bleh.)
  • Drink to excess
  • Have sex with whomever you wish (in or out of wedlock and as long as everyone is a consenting adult)
  • Go to church on Sunday
  • Or don’t go to church on Sunday

As long as what you do, doesn’t intrude upon me.

So.  To be clear.  You do what you want.  It’s cool.

Not cool?

Coming into my backyard while I’m relaxing on a warm day, and blowing smoke in my face and proselytizing while having sex with my cat.  (This hasn’t happened)


*Too many people I know have had their lives ruined by addictions that began with marijuana.  People in my family have had serious problems with addiction both drug and alcohol based.  Because of that, I won’t ever do it.  Having said that, I have also witnessed with my own eyes, the benefits of medical marijuana.  It’s astounding.  Again, people I know and care about have seen incredible relief and there is no denying that it helps, so I am definitely on board and support it.

    Me, I have bad sensitivities to a lot of gaseous effects. Cigarette smoke. Marijuana smoke. Sulfur gas–my late friend Scott was amused (after the fact) just how much the Mud Volcano sent me in paroxysm of unhappiness. So, yeah, definitely not for me, never for me.

    So…not caring is actually v caring. Nice post. There are a lot of arguments on a trade channel I have to wade through in a game I play regarding cannabis. Makes it interesting. And I know of a young child that has bad epilepsy just like the girl, Charlotte, for whom the Charlotte’s Web strain is named. They are starting him on it.

    I want my dad to partake of cannabis as a way of stopping his alcoholism, I want my stepmonster to partake to get her to eat (doctor’s can’t figure out why she is wasting away). I don’t want my stepbrother to partake cuz he would end up using it to avoid life. Mixed bag, humanity is.

    Thanks for being open with your stance 🙂 – I appreciate it.

    As for your cat….if he is a consenting adult…(k, yeah, ew.)
