Pot doesn't make you stupid.
Regular drinking is way worse for you than regular smoking.
A lot of these comments come from this weird, American place where we have this bizarre belief that there is some sort of 100% healthy standard and that we must optimize our lives in order to reach this standard. It's the sort of "oh shit I'll never take any risks because I might not get that $160k Skadden job and I'll have to settle for a V50 firm" that cracks me up and also makes me sad.
And yes, please pass the crack.
Please pass the mediocrity. You're right, we should just shit on our dreams. I mean, why set high standards for yourself?
Pot smokers love talking about how bad drinking is for you. It's laughable. My vice isn't as bad as your vice, so that makes me a wise, pseudointellectual drug user. I'll smoke every now and then, but it's such bullshit that it doesn't affect you. What about physical fitness? Sex drive (I always wonder about you people)? Even if doesn't "kill brain cells," we're still filling our lungs with smoke and manipulating our brain's biochemistry. Even if you can juggle smoking and being a book worm, there's no question that it affects our ability to be the whole person. If that isn't important to you, then you're a loser.
