I can’t be friends with anybody who smokes pot. I’m saying it now, and I know I’m probably going to lose many people in my life with this post, but it has to be said. I’ve seen and gone through so much shit that I can’t bear to go through again, and I just want everybody to know that I still love them, even though I can’t speak with them anymore.
I have reasons. So many.
But I’ll only tell you the non-personal ones.
- It’s illegal to be with, around, or near anybody with marijuana, regardless of whether or not it’s yours or you’ve been using it.
- I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s a gateway drug. It can lead to other things if you use/abuse it.
- It causes you to become incoherent, and although it might not cause serious brain damage, it does raise your anxiety, suspicion, and distrust for up to a week after you use it. It will also make you depressed after you are not longer high, and make you want to use it again.
- It can effect your life outside of drugs, such as family life and school work. If it effects your family and you know it, why are you still using it?
I have so many others that I’m not willing to post on Tumblr. But unless I’ve talked to you specifically and you smoke pot, I’d rather not be your friend.
