Freedom

A current or ex-pothead parent cannot tell his kids to abstain. He/she hasn’t the authority. But he/she can tell them it’s a complete no-go as a steady lifestyle component, and that it’s almost guaranteed that daily or frequent turning on results in a lack of drive, ambition and discipline to some extent. In this sense pot is almost a worse thing to get down with than booze because boozers, at least, tend to perform better professionally.

    There’s also no way for me to know what movie this trailer is for. Can anyone chime in with a title?

    I assume you mean ‘almost always a worse thing” (?) — though I’d disagree. I started smoking weed when I got out of school almost a decade ago. Smoked it fairly constantly ever since (every day for a couple of years). I make six figures, have lots of friends, never regret anything I’ve done while high, maintain a high intellectual acuity amd I never have to deal with waking up hungover. Sure, I might’ve spent the odd weekend in playing videogames instead of socialising, but all in all I’d prefer to be a functional pothead than alcoholic.

    No competition.

    This post is at least two thirds wrong.

    4 out of 5 jobs (or let’s say 3 out of 5 to be on the safe side) are repetitive, boring, and have little or no opportunity for creative endeavours or individual initiative. And it doesn’t matter if everyone was equally talented, hard-working and ambitious, these jobs would still need to be performed regardless for society to function properly. So if you’re one of the schmo who is stuck in one of those jobs that is leaving you unfulfilled, you’re much better off smoking your joint after your shift and enjoying your evening than boozing up. Yep, it will kill off your ambition, and that’s pretty much the point.

    Let me go into mroe details.

    First sentence: Wrong. Unless a dad who drinks beer can’t tell his kids not to either.
    Second sentence: Wrong. Parent = authority.
    Third sentence: I’ll defer to others with more direct knowedge.
    Fourth sentence: Wrong. Boozers kill more people and make a much bigger mess.
