‘Parents Against Pot’ Give 10 Reasons To Not Date A Stoner, And You Don’t Even Need To Be High To Find This Funny
Marijuana is great. It’s a wonderful way to unwind after work without having a hangover, and it makes movies like 65 times cooler than they already are.
Most people who smoke are pretty chill, too. They like hanging out, relaxing, and watching movies. Honestly, they kinda sound like the perfect people to date. I would love a stoner girlfriend. Someone to get high with, and watch movies with while being high.
What more could one want?
ANYTHING BUT THAT, says Parents Opposed to Pot, a private non-profit that wants kids to not smoke pot. They published an essay today about why you shouldn’t date a stoner, with logic as plausible as:
1. Financially Unstable. The stoner lifestyle may not seem to interfere with your relationship until it begins to put a strain on your finances. When you are dating someone who begins to spend excessive time and money on marijuana, you may be left responsible for picking up the slack.
An eighth of weed will cost you $50 bucks and last you two weeks. You know what else costs about that much? Feeding yourself. Perhaps you could consider refusing to date anyone who needs food to live.
3. Competing with a Drug. A relationship is more likely to collapse when an individual expresses a greater interest towards a substance than towards their partner. See one woman’s story: I Smoked Marijuana for Love
I highly suggest you follow that link, which leads to the harrowing tale of a woman who dated a man who smoked marijuana.
I loved Ryan and at the time I thought he was going to be the father of my children. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that I would always be second place to marijuana.
She apparently got stoned for two-and-a-half years with her boyfriend. Which leads me to believe she just liked smoking pot.
Anyway, back to the list. Back to the terrible, unconscionable things that will happen if you go out with someone who puffs a little nug.
8. Say Goodbye to the Simple Pleasures. If you are dating a frequent user it is likely that they will rarely be satisfied with the simple pleasures in life unless they are high. This may lead to a major disconnect between the two of you.
Very true, but that’s because things are more awesome on weed. Like I’m starting to think none of these parents have ever even tried pot.
9. Fear of the Unknown. Perhaps the scariest part of dating a marijuana user is the fear of what may come next. Just because you begin dating someone who’s habit seems harmless, there is no way of knowing what it could evolve into, whether it be addiction, mental illness, depression, or in some cases the exploitation of other harmful drugs.
