WEED Smokers are Unsuccessful Slackers...NOT !

Johnny Depp

First and foremost it must be said ....

....that smoking or consuming weed (cannabis) in any form, alone, will not make you successful or a celebrity. And further, depending on where you live in the world, the mere act of doing so may get you in prison. And, believe it or not, talking or writing about it or protesting about it could land you in the same place.

Hopefully you are 18 years of age or older and your goals in life should be firmly in place as well as your education. Your talent and what you love to do should not be sitting around all day smoking weed. Or growing and dealing it so you can smoke free pot all day. Unless of course your goal in life is to be in the weed business. In that case where you live will be dependent on whether your career is legal or not.

It should become obvious to you the mere fact that you are seeing these pictures of these successful tokers means that they did not sit around all day and smoke pot, or they wouldn't be where they are today. They 'busted their ass' and pursued what they truly loved to do, and did not let rejection get the best of them, or let anybody tell them they couldn't do 'it.' They made the decision and nothing, short of death, was going to stop them.

Some (and there are thousands) Celeb Toker Quotes ~

"I enjoy smoking cannabis and see no harm in it" -JENNIFER ANNISTON

When asked if he smoked. "You bet I did. And I enjoyed it" -MICHEAL BLOOMBERG (Mayor of New York)

"Was a sign that we were alive and in graduate school" -NEWT GINGRICH (Former speaker of the House)

'I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is a herb and a flower. God put it here. If he put it here and he wants it to grow, what gives Government the right to say that God is wrong?" -WILLIE NELSON

"I Think that marijuana should not only be legal, I think it should be a cottage industry. It would be wonderful for the state of Maine. There's some pretty good homegrown dope. Im sure it would be even better if you could grow it with fertilizers and have greenhouses" -STEVEN KING (author)

"Look at fires when high, by the way, especially through one of those prism kaleidoscopes which image their surroundings, is and extraordinary moving and beautiful experience" -CARL SAGAN

"It really puzzles me to see marijuana connected with narcotics....dope and all that crap, its a thousand times better than whiskey- its an assistant- a friend" -LOUIS ARMSTRONG

“Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.” -William F. Buckley

“Whenever the people are for gay marriage or medical marijuana or assisted suicide, suddenly the "will of the people" goes out the window.” -Bill Maher

"I'm breaking the law every day, and I will continue to break the law." -Montel Williams

"Instead of taking five or six prescription drugs I decided to go the natural rout and smoke marijuana." -Melissa Etheridge

pot should be legalized

It's certainly a no-brainer, and has been ever since slimy Harry came out from under his rock.

ha ha ha, Thanks JohnWindbell for this article. My uncle has a prescription from his doctor for medical cannabis, due to him overcoming lung cancer. To add to your cannabis quotes, Oh yeah, "I never inhaled" (Bill Clinton). Voted up :]

Hey Ann810, good to hear from you ....and about your Uncle's Meds. Would love to hear in more detail, please email me. I'm a great one for success stories, especially when the med is taboo! 'Imagine if the medicine never worked, and killed people, we'de need to advertise it like the FDA.'

I enjoy your hubs, fellow hubster.

Maybe ganja is too effective; if it were legal, it might take a few of those 'safe and FDA approved' drugs off the market.

Thanks for the drop-by MostLadder. It isn't 'maybe' anymore, and probably never was. Check out my hub 'the real drug cartel.'

I've said and will continue to say to anyone who'll listen that those who remain against the legalization of pot, weed, marijuana...whatever...have never smoked or imbibed it. And after many decades of use by the masses, there still has never been one single death from a pot-related traffic accident.

If members of MADD were to direct their energies to the legalization of marijuana instead, the organization could disband in a very short time. Not to mention save the billions of taxpayer dollars now spent on housing and feeding pot heads in prison (some for LIFE) that could be put to much better use funding education, repairing our infrastructure, and creating jobs. But then I'm preaching to the choir here, so I'll just go inhale that bag of Oreos. Now where did I put it?... ;D

johnwindbell 5 years ago from - the land of beards and buggies Author

JamaGenee, you're a babe after my own heart. Yes, most of the choir here are logical thinkers, and the young are as well, thank goodness. The future is bound to be different. Don't Bogart those Oreos now ~


JamaGenee profile image

JamaGenee 5 years ago from Central Oklahoma

I *will* Bogart the Oreos - but I won't remember doing it. ;-} At least I haven't so far, not even the time a (full) bag levitated itself from the kitchen to the LR and then back to the kitchen (empty) and turned inside out, licked clean of every crumb. ;D

johnwindbell 5 years ago from - the land of beards and buggies Author

Hey JG, just checked your blog and found you are in OK, which is not OK with the chat we are having here. Careful dear, it aint safe to exhale there, or inhale. Are Oreos still legal?


JamaGenee profile image

JamaGenee 5 years ago from Central Oklahoma

JWB, I hate to bring this up, but unless one has one of those much-coveted prescriptions for medical marijuana, it's illegal to inhale OR exhale in all 50 states, not just OK. But what the heck...I'm already on shaky ground being one of the only three non-Repubs in a red state. (What was I thinkin' when I moved here??? Oh I know! Oregon was too far away and Vermont too cold...) And yes, Oreos are still legal in OK...but just barely. ;D

(Thanks for visiting Sat's Child.)

How come you didn`t include Bob Marley on this hub!? Unforgivable... :D

"Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction." Bob Marley

"When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself." Bob Marley

What were you talking about? I forgot... not! :D

hi there! the quote "When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself." by Bob Marley is one of my and my husbands favorite..I as well love his Lion Zion! I refuse to incriminate myself..I live in Kentucky and Daniel Boone's natural forest is filled with the stuff..the gov is too scared or too square to admit the benefits of legal cannibas. I am part of MADD..I think I just got me an idea..darn..what was I saying? lol nice work voted up!

johnwindbell 5 years ago from - the land of beards and buggies Author

Thanks for passin it by, Jo_Goldsmith, and I agree what Bob said.....and allot of people have been caught in their own denial for so long they just can't handle being introduced to their real self. And thus they will get depressed when stoned, then promote that Cannabis causes depression.....?

John! how is it going? Yea, I think with the values that are changing in this country. We will hopefully see folks stand up for what they believe in. It takes one voice, and then many voices to really have an impact! You are awesome!
