Some Anti-Marijuana Slogans
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
We've all seen the hilarious anti-pot ads that groups put out. If you smoke pot, you'll run over a kid on a bike or possibly you'll end up looking like a delated balloon. Highly unlikely. I don't know if they believe that their tactics actually work because I don't ever remember being afraid of pot after seeing anti-smoking ads. The only actual campaign that I ever believed to be effective was the Meth Project, in which they showed the deterioration of the human body while addicted to meth. But weed isn't meth... Not even close.
The following are slogans that have been used in anti-marijuana campaigns. They don't make a lot of sense and they certainly don't assist in helping to keep marijuana illegal. I wonder if the people who created these slogans know that they're not taken seriously by their alleged target audience. Either way, for your enjoyment. Also, they all seem to rhyme. You've been warned.
- "Put that stash in the trash!"
Did you pay for the stash? No? Then why are you telling me to throw it away? There was money involved in the acquisition of the stash and throwing it out is like tossing out the contents of your wallet. Anyone who spends their hard earned money on bud isn't going to readily toss their jar of bud in a trashcan.
- "Pot makes your brain rot... So let's not."
Television and the media make your brain rot. Marijuana enlightens you to see all sides of the argument, rather than stay close minded. In my experience, the people who are the most difficult to convince are the ones who refuse to open their mind to alternate possibilities. I say smoke pot, become a smarter person.
- "An ounce of weed a day takes your life away!"
I could absolutely smoke an ounce in a day! I would have a blunt in hand during every single activity. Unfortunately, weed is expensive and I'm very limited with funds so I'll stick to the small amount of bud that I smoke. Ideally, if my jar just refilled itself every time it ran out would be amazing. An ounce a day sounds perfect.
- "Say not to pot!"
This one doesn't even really make sense. I think it's a little far reaching to try to make these slogans always rhyme. The reasoning behind the rhyming idea must be the fact that the human brain seems to remember simple things. Unfortunately, potheads aren't simple thinkers.
- "Get high on life, not drugs!"
Let us get right on that while our country bombs Syria, Iraq, and whatever other place we feel compelled to involved ourselves in. Getting high on life might've been a somewhat accomplishable feat when there weren't so many rules holding us in place. However, when the American dream consists of working a 9-5 just to pay for your existence doesn't seem like something you can get high off. So do you want to smoke a joint?
- "Are you stoned or just stupid?"
There's no need to turn to insults. Telling stoners they're stupid is only going to make them smoke more. Turing to aggression won't help either cause. Grade school insults aren't going to make people hate marijuana.
The key is to just know your facts. Avoid listening to obnoxious propaganda that isn't backed by any facts. A lot of anti-drug campaigns use scare tactics to keep people away from smoking. Telling potheads that they're going to go crazy, kill themselves, or even others isn't going to work basically because it's not true! Stoners (with the exception of a few) are some of the most calm, logical people that I've encountered. Being educated is the first step to legalization!
Ice In The Bong; Yes Or No?

Ice In The Bong; Good Or Bad?
Most bongs that are on the market today come equipped with ice catchers. This added tool makes it possible for you to put ice cubes in your bong, which people like because it cools the smoke before you inhale it. However, there are some rumors surrounding ice in bongs. While it may cool the smoke, you're also inhaling a ton of water vapor from the ice cubes. This can lead to severe bronchitis and lung problems, as inhaling too much water vapor isn't good for your lungs.
When the hot smoke from the bowl passes over the cubes in the bong, the ice melts in to the smoke, which goes straight to your lungs. It's extremely difficult for me to find any sort of studies relating to this issue. Mostly, it's all forums of stoners bickering back and forth about their opinions. I turned to the E-cigs that people are smoking these days. While the Cigs aren't the same as ice in a bong, the selling point is that you're inhaling water vapor, rather than smoke. Unfortunately, Dr. Mike Feinstein - a spokesman for the American Lung Association - says that these products are unsafe and are potentially worse than actual cigarettes.
In my personal experience, ice in a bong hurts the hell out of my lungs. As someone who has suffered from severe bronchitis due to over inhalation of second hand smoke, I can definitely feel the difference between a bong with ice and one without. When I smoke a bong with ice in it, it's almost like the smoke freezes in my lungs, making it extremely hard to breathe. When I smoke without ice, this feeling doesn't happen. I'm not sure if my lungs are just damaged because I used to smoke cigarettes and because of the bronchitis but I do not smoke with ice in my bongs... Ever. If I want to cool the smoke down, I fill my bong with water that's been in the refrigerator. That way, I'm inhaling just the smoke, without the vapor from the cubes.
As I stated before, there really is no right answer to this question. My personal belief is that you shouldn't put ice in your bong. But that's just me. Smoking itself can be argued about whether or not it's healthy. There are most certainly healthier ways to get high other than smoking. It all comes down to what you think you should do. Cold water in the bong works perfectly for me although I definitely prefer to eat my weed over anything else. Be healthy and safe, fellow stoners! :)

Marijuana has been a staple in my life for the past six years. It helps with my anxiety, eating, sleeping, and most important of all, it gives me the ability to handle the people that I deal with at work. For four years, I've been a bartender in a colorful variation of establishments. Since I don't drink alcohol and don't particularly care for it, dealing with drunk coworkers and even drunker patrons gets extremely old after a while. It's become a routine for me to get as stoned as I possibly can before heading to the bar because let's face it, drunk people get annoying when you're sober... And they get annoying fast.
I've perfected the art of being baked at work and I figured that I would share some of these tips with you in case you're like me as I'm sure most of you are. Working stoned can be extremely scary when you're not used to it. I used to avoid smoking before work because I was petrified that my boss would find out. These days, I'm pretty sure that all three of my bosses know that I'm a huge stoner and write for both THCFinder and Stonerdays. They even read the articles I put out.
The key to working stoned is to just always act stoned. Staying in the mindset that I'm still high seems to work for me. When I first started at my current job, I learned that this method is perfect. Thinking that you're stoned with create the placebo effect almost... If you think it hard enough, your eyes will still hang low and you'll pull off that slow smile that stoners have adopted as their trademark. It will help you slip under the radar of annoying bosses that have nothing better to do than wonder if all of their employees are on drugs.
Sometimes, being stoned at work is the only way to make it through a day. It even becomes necessary to smoke at work occasionally. Just make sure that you're still accomplishing the things that are required. Being a fully functioning stoner only proves that marijuana isn't the laziest drug ever and not all of us are slackers. By being able to function while stoned just shows how well we can manage ourselves! People take medicine at work all the time and I believe that people who use marijuana for medical reasons should be able to as well! Just keep looking permafried! ;)
Smoking with friends vs. Smoking Solo
Smoking has created thousands of friendships over the years and strengthened just as many. Even so, there are always people who would rather smoke by themselves before smoking with friends. This is something that definitely depends on the person. Some people are just anti social or may have had bad experiences with weed thieves in the past, which is enough to make anyone prefer to toke up alone. There are pros and cons to each of these situations, whether you're a lone wolf or a social butterfly.
Smoking with friends can be a really good time! It's fun to share silly stories and watch bad horror movies together or go on adventures. Having friends around also means that you're not always smoking your weed which may or may not prolong your stash (Depends on how much you guys are smoking!). There are downsides to getting baked with buddies though. Sometimes, there is that one person who never seems to have their own weed and they always seem to smoke yours... Even when they brag about the bag of fire they just bought. If you're such good friends, a packed bowl should be filled by both people, not just always one. Sometimes, friends don't have weed and that's fine but every single time you see them? I'm sorry but they might be using you for your buds. Another bad friend type is the kind that never actually inhales the weed. They just kind of cough all the smoke out of their mouth along with a spray of spit and who knows what else. These are the kinds of friends that you don't need to have around and will only hinder your smoking.
When you're alone, it might be quite but it's a wonderful time to sit back and think. Just to think about life and work in a calm manner. I love to get baked by myself. I don't have to share my weed and it's quiet. There are people who absolutely prefer solitude to groups and there's nothing wrong with it, contrary to what others might think. Just because one prefers to be alone doesn't mean that they're super sad and bummed. Smoking alone provides a good environment for work and things that require focus. While social smoke sessions with the occasional friend are cool and somewhat refreshing, being alone (to me) is more appealing. While there are positives to smoking alone, there are also negatives. Being by yourself can be a bummer when you turn to make a silly comment and remember that no one else is there. It's also a bummer when you look at your weed jar and it's empty and you realize that you smoked it all yourself!
Everyone's personality is different and some are more social than others. Bad experiences also effect a person's ability to smoke with others, especially if a bad situation has been encountered more than once. But a burn cruise with buddies is definitely something that should be done at least once a month! Remember to respect your fellow stoners and their personal choices! Whether you're a social smoker or not, we all love Mary Jane and that's what's important!

The Appeal Of The Blunt
There have been many different ways to smoke weed introduced to potheads over the years. Bongs, bowls, hookahs, chillums, all kinds of papers, etc. Everyone has their favorite method of getting baked but it seems to me that blunts out of everything are extremely popular, especially in the Instagram community. I personally prefer to smoke bongs but I do quite enjoy a nicely rolled blunt every once in a while. So what's the appeal of the blunt? Why do some people seem to want to smoke them more than anything, especially around friends?
A blunt is easy to fill when you have a couple of people throwing down on it. In large groups, this is a huge benefit because that's less weed that the individual has to throw down out of their personal stash. While sharing weed with friends is good, in an economy such as this one, saving is kind of important! Being able to get ripped with a bunch of friends on less than a gram of weed is dope! Especially since the different strains in the blunt are going to be an interesting combination!
Smoking is largely a social activity and a blunt will smoke forever, most definitely if it's well rolled. This makes for good bonding time with people who you may not know very well. It creates new friendships and is awesome to smoke while talking about stoner related topics or whatever else you feel like discussing! If you're smoking with a group of older friends, a b makes for a good way to catch up. It's definitely the best way to smoke if you're looking to just chill, talk, and listen to tunes.
The most important reason I think that the blunt has blown up on the Internet is the attention to detail it takes to roll a perfect one. There are whole feeds that are dedicated to immaculately rolled blunts. The title of Professional Blunt Roller is one that's held in very high standards by stoners everywhere. Learning to roll is absolutely a necessity when you smoke with friends. I strongly suggest that potheads everywhere learn this craft. While you don't have to crete scorpion blunts or pipe blunts. You don't have to do anything crazy but I can promise that everyone will be impressed when you produce a perfect pearl.
