marijuana new years resolution

(via wheresweed.com)

It’s a brand new year. 2014 is history and 2015 is a mystery. People all across the globe made New Year’s resolutions leading up to the new year. Where you one of those? I had some interesting conversations with social media friends last night about marijuana related New Year’s resolutions. Did your New Year’s resolution or resolutions involve marijuana? Below are some of the ones that were brought up last night during my conversations:

No bammer weed – I was surprised to learn that there are still a lot of people out there smoking brick weed. It’s likely because people have no other choice, as there simply isn’t any other kind of marijuana in their area. That was the case for me a couple of decades ago, but I made a resolution to quit smoking brick weed in 1994 and I’m happy to say that I haven’t touched the stuff since (which is not hard living in Oregon!). If you are able, take the pledge too. That stuff sucks, and supports cartels.

Get a marijuana job – I talked to numerous people that have a goal this year to get a job in the marijuana industry. Find one that is rewarding, and doesn’t involve working for some ego maniac jerk of a boss, which is common in the marijuana industry.

Start a marijuana business – Don’t want to work for someone else? Consider starting a marijuana business. The industry is growing at a neck breaking pace, so find a niche and fill a void and change your career (and your life!).

Volunteer for marijuana causes – Marijuana laws aren’t going to reform themselves. Get active with an organization or campaign! Or if politics isn’t your thing, volunteer for a non-profit that helps patients. Word to the wise, make sure to vet the non-profit to ensure that it’s really not a for-profit-disguised-as-a-non-profit, which occurs a lot in the marijuana world. Making money while helping people is great, but just make sure that if you are going to get used and abused, at least get paid for it if your ‘volunteer boss’ is getting paid for it. Unless of course you don’t care, then volunteer it up!

Lobby more – something that is always needed in the marijuana world is people lobbying the political candidates that represent them. Call your state and federal Senators and Representatives. Call your city council members and mayor. Let them know how you feel. I’ve talked to a lot of politicians that said one of the biggest reasons they don’t go out of their way to pursue reform is because they aren’t sure how many of their constituents actually support it.

Donate – Sign up to make a monthly contribution for the next 12 months (and preferably beyond!). Donate to a campaign or organization. If you are wondering which ones to donate to, e-mail me, as I have a solid list of amazing things to donate to!

Smoke more joints – With the rise of vape pens and dab rigs, it seems like joints are becoming less prevalent. I’m making it a goal to smoke at least one joint a day on average this year.

Consume more dabs – I talked to one guy last night who plans on only consuming concentrates in 2015. It’s obviously different than my resolution, but a resolution worth pursuing nonetheless!

    don’t advocate joints. Joints have more cancer-causing toxins and may even cause deadly blood clots in women that are on birth control. I switched to my vaporizer & never looked back.

      Donald Tashkin found that smoking is mildly protective against lung cancer.

      Cannabis cures cancer. Cancer kills 586,000 Americans every year. Every Prohibitionist is complicit in mass murder.

      Pass it on.

      I’m scared of voporizers???? Can it cause fluid in lungs due to moisture in vapor or is there no moisture in vapor? Curious… I know a couple people going to vapor? What about water bongs? Good bad or better than rolled???

    My goal is to find a legit dealer and “experiment” a little. Was at a new years party with family, and a group of my step brothers friends (age 19-20, me being 16) let me smoke with them for my first time, 2 bong rips later I had the best experience of my life, and a perfect way to start the new year.

    Tldr; get my own equipment; bong, pipe, whatever. And start smoking on a more regular basis, maybe weekly?

    Get enough petition signatures to make the ’16 ballot in Arkansas for medical! #arcompassion

    End Prohibition.

    Pass it on.

      No, actually it hasn’t been proven to “cure” cancer, it’s been shown to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with various forms of it.
      Marijuana hasn’t been “proven” to actually cure anything, but it definitely has been shown to help control many types of pain.
      Spewing non-verifiable mantra isn’t doing the legalization movement any favors, and it most likely does the opposite.
      I want to see it legalized too, but I cringe every time I read an unsupportable statement.

        Denny,

        It has not been proven to not cure cancer. The research has not been done. The government won’t allow it. OTOH there are lots of anecdotes. So until it is PROVEN it doesn’t cure cancer I’m going with it does.

        You might want to look up “Dr. William Courtney brain tumor” for a very nice anecdote with MRIs.

        To get the proof required for all the possible cancers it has to come off schedule one.

    Make better strain selections when & for growing. Life is too short to be growing sub grade cannabis, especially with the variety of outstanding genetics available today. Even for growers who don’t live in one of “free cannabis states” it’s more important than ever to choose the correct genetics to both maximize yields and ensure harvests, even during the infrequent times when Mother Nature may not live up to…your or your plants’ expectations.The right strain selection can make or break your growing season, especially in challenging locations and/or conditions. So don’t skimp on the one thing where it pays not to because we growers really do reap what we sew…

    I am resolved to get the government out of the business altogether. No more taxed or regulated than tomatoes. At any level. We don’t want illegal cartels. We don’t want legal cartels.

    We have done enough begging on our knees to make our point. It is now time to stand on our feet and demand what Eric Garner demanded. “It stops today.” – “Don’t touch me.” – “Just leave me alone.”

    I’m movein’ to Oregon and retire happy and stoned
