Maybe the only three.
Cheech & Chong
Jeff Spicoli (“Fast Times at Ridgemont High”)
Y’see, ’70s and ’80s stoner movies are accepted
by some as more reliable proof
that smoking weed screws you up
than are recent scientific studies as proof
that certain chemical elements within weed
can fight and even cure cancer.
The same shitheads who
adamantly refuse to believe that
Pabst Blue Ribbon and Lone Star
and expensive Chardonays
are gateway drinks
to rot-gut rye and cheap-ass gin.
There’s that social stigma that comes from the association pot has had with musicians, poets, artists, great literary minds, scholars, scientists, researchers, visionaries, the counter-culture movements and those who have questioned the status quo.
These people think best outside the box. They have always thought and continue to think progressively. These are people who aren’t afraid of change. Who don’t fear anything which is different. People who don’t fear trying or doing something different.
The people who will take the next step.
The societal boogey-men.
