an outsider looking in because i smoke pot?

  1. so i guess that's what i am. we were talking the other day about how our senior class doesn't know anything about each other, because we don't, and this guy says to me, that's just because you're an outsider looking in. you wear it on your sleeve that you're a pothead and flaunt it and that's why people don't like you. i honestly didn't know people didn't like my friends and i because of this. i am nice to everyone in my school, whether i know them or not and i get the same kindness in return from them. i don't care if smoking pot makes me an outsider because i am happy with my life. i don't talk about smoking pot or brag about it, but because i choose to wear hemp and the occasional tie dye shirt i am flaunting it. i know some kids that dress just like i do and have never even smoked pot in their life. ok i'm done, i just needed to vent

    I'm like that too, lots of people know I smoke pot but I don't go out of my way to flaunt it. Sometimes I do feel like an outsider tho b/c I live in the Bible Belt.

    In my high school you were an outsider if you didn't smoke pot. Thats the way it should be :D

    sometimes I just wish the whole world smoked pot.

    That isn't the way it should be at all. People shouldn't be outcasted because they do / don't smoke pot. It really isn't a big deal. It's like having a drink or two, or a few, or getting plastered @ a bar...
    We should judge each other by if anything, character and if you are a good moral person. Not the substances you chose to, or choose not to use.

    People need to look past all of that shit. Pot smoking.. it's just a .. characteristic that makes you you. Kinda like your hair color, eye color, etc. And another thing: you should not be judged by your skin color either. It's a characteristic like hair color, and nobody hates all the people with different colored hair than them!

    I agree with what you are saying about judging people by their character and not by aything else. I was simply saying that I think the world would be a better place if more people smoked pot, it would be legal, less violence, more creatitivity ect. I said people should feel like outsiders if they don't smoke pot with a bucket full of scarcasm which even the huge shit eatting grin did not help to communicate. I hope people see what I mean now...
     
  9. i always laugh when i hear kids say things like "oh my god, they smoke pot like every single day, that's so bad." i don't think smoking everday is wrong at all. when i first started smoking pot it was something that was all planned out for a friday night or something. now it's an everyday thing. as bad as it may sound i've made it a part of my life and my daily routine. i don't think i am wrong for it at all, i still get my shit done, and i enjoy myself. people that play a big part in my life accept me for it, even my mother, so kids making bad comments at a school that i will be attending for about 15 more days don't really phase me. i'm happy with my life and that's all that matters.

    I knew what u were saying, u just said in a weird way...u can never know when someone online is being sarcastic or not, but yeah i agree with u in that, if more people smoked pot the world would be more loose and mellow and not so uptight about something that isn't as bad as most people think it to be...

    peace

    i don't try to flaunt that im a pot head.
    actually i try to keep it on a need to know basis.

    a lot of people don't like pot smokers, and they won't even give you a chance sometimes, lolz, so just don't let them know

    Ill talk about pot when im around other potsmokers. If someone else overhears and they dont like me for it i dont give a shit, not usually an issue anymore anyways, but for the people that are that uptight, well, they can go screw themselves.

    Well if people don't accept me for who I am, then I don't think they're my friends.

    I don't flaunt that I smoke pot regularly. I flaunt that I am a hippy and I supose that is part of the whole hippy package... I don't get persecuted for that. I'm out going and I would consider myself a socail butterfly, so I am who I am and if ppl dont like it, they can fuck off... but most ppl dont do that.

    Good to know I'm not the only one who does that! Just for fun we should all post what we think everyone looks like based on their posts. But not if it's mean.

    my avitar kinda resembels me. I have long brown, slightly reddish hair and a beard
     
  20. i don't flaunt it at all. maybe the tie dye and hemp give it away but i think that is ignorant that people assume you smoke pot bc of how you choose to dress. they can assume away, bc they're right...i am a pothead, i'll admit it. but that's not what i'm all about. there's a lot of gossip in high school and that's why i expect people to talk about me. everyone talks about everyone, it's so lame. when i graduate in less than a month i'm hoping that i can be around more people that accept it, but if not, no big deal. i just wish people would worry about themselves and not other people so much. i'm not hurting anyone and i don't judge them for not smoking pot. a lot of kids brag about how much they drank the night before and how drunk they were...what's the difference if i say i got pretty stoned last night. for some reason alcohol is completely acceptable and smoking pot isn't. some may say, because it's illegal, but the kids judging me are drinking underage...that's illegal. i know you've all probably heard the song "burn one down," everytime i get judged i always think of the lines "my choice is what i choose to do and if i'm causing no harm it shouldn't bother you...your choice is who you choose to be and if you're causing no harm you're alright with me." i wish everyone could get that message and understand it and live by it but for some reason we live in a world where people care too much and judge others. i could go on forever about this, but i won't ;)
