Gateway My Right Cheek....

I've debated & debated with myself on whether or not to write this post. I'm still a bit hesitant but have come to the conclusion that this is my blog & if you don't like what I have to say it's as easy as clicking the little white X in the red box in the right hand corner.

I'm aware I may loose some readers & hell, I may even gain some but in reality this is who I am. If you don't like it then you don't like me & you shouldn't be here.

So here it goes...I don't think cannabis is a gateway drug.

I love the fact that CA is one of the most lenient states when it comes to marijuana laws. I agree with Prop 215 & I really hope Prop 19 passes in November, god knows CA can use that tax money...badly.

I will say that I agree that kids should not be able to get their hands on it but in all reality its easier for them to get a hold of alcohol now a days (I have a teenage brother, I know firsthand). The reality of it is it's out there & it isn't going anywhere...sorry all you right winged beautiful Americans. Personally, if I had a choice I'd rather have a stoner behind the wheel of a car driving 15 mph than a drunk driving 85 mph.

I'm tired & I'm sure I'll regret being this honest later but I've now said my peace and here are a few celebrities that don't mind it either...
  • President Barack Obama "I inhaled frequently, that was the point"
  • Cameron Diaz
  • Julia Roberts "I smoked dope twice, it made me too sleepy"
  • Drew Barrymore
  • Brad Pitt
  • Quentin Tarantino "I don’t smoke while I’m directing”"
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Megan Fox "I can’t tell you how much bullshit I’ve been through because I will openly say that I smoke weed"
  • Snoop Dog (no surprise here, lol)
  • Charlize Theron
  • Jennifer Aniston "I enjoy smoking cannabis and see no harm in it"
  • Shia LaBeouf "Nobody has ever died smoking weed"
  • Stephen King " think that marijuana should not only be legal, I think it should be a cottage industry."
  • Matthew McConaughey
  • Kristin Dunst "America's view on weed is ridiculous & the world would be a better place if everyone smoked weed."
  • Bill Maher
  • Morgan Freeman "I will never give up the ganga."
  • Michael Phelps
  • Woody Harrelson
  • Willie Nelson "I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. It's an herb & a flower."
  • Frances McDormand "I'm a recreational pot-smoker."
  • Seth Rogan
  • Nicole Richie
  • Michelle Phillips "It's the greatest drug in the world."
  • Sarah Silverman
  • Oliver Stone
  • Barbara Striesand "I was great, it relieved all my tensions. And I ended up with the greatest supply of grass ever."
  • Sir Paul McCartney "I can take pot or leave it. I got busted in Japan for it."
  • Steve Martin "I used to smoke marijuana."
  • Melissa Ethridge "Instead of taking five or six of the prescriptions, I decided to go a natural route & smoke marijuana."
  • Tim Robbins "Considering the fact that I've used it in the past, and know what it is, and seen the results of it, I don't view marijuana as a dangerous drug.
  • Steve Jobs
Wow...I could keep going but there are just way too many. I guess my point is there a lot things wrong with the world but this shouldn't be one of them. We seriously have bigger fish to fry.


  1. I'm a Mormon. I will not partake, but I'm voting in favor of legalization. The state really, really needs the revenue. Also, I just don't see the big deal.

  2. I've never tried it myself, but I think that if it's regulated and legal it probably won't be an issue. In fact, it'll probably be less of an issue than alcohol. I'm guessing that it would probably give a boost to the Doritos industry too.

  3. Loved this! I can only hope more states legalize.

  4. You know Lin BRAVO for speaking your mind! I was debating a post about this as well because we have it coming up on for a vote here PROP 203. I do not feel it is a gateway drug either. Do I feel that kids should partake, hell no but I am not afraid to admit to smoking it in years past! As some one with Fibromyalgia it sure would be nice to be able to LEGALLY try something other then what the doctors and the big drug companies push to help with the pain that some days rule my world!

    This is YOUR blog piss on those who don't agree. Opinions are like Ass Holes we all have one, and thanks to the freedom of speech we can express them!


I love comments!
