    for the people who think im a bush-hater 

    let me make one thing perfectly clear, i dont hate our president.

    allow me to explain.

    i love pot.

    marijuana, mary jane, cheeba, weed, chronic

    green sticky purple haired wacky tobbacky.

    love it.

    i love the smell, i love the taste, i love its looks,

    i love the culture, i love the sharing, i love people who smoke it, i love its resin, i love its paraphenalia, i love its high.

    i love smelling pot in the bag, i love packing it into a bowl, i love lighting it, i love the sound that the water makes as it gurgles as i take a rip, i love inhaling, i love exhaling

    i love exhaling it into the mouth of a pretty girl and i love to watch her close her eyes as she holds it

    i love the sound of one holding and failing slightly – gnk – cough – gnk.

    i love laughing and laughing and laughing at laughing.

    i love hotboxing, i love rolling joints, i love finding weed, i love being passed joints, i love songs about weed, i love references about weed, i love the variety of uses for weed/hemp, i love the many ways to call weed weed. i love looking at the clock and noticing when it says 4:20.

    got it?

    k.

    but at some point i had to really look at pot and what it was doing to me and i had to make the adult decision that it was hurting me more than it was helping me, it was costing me money without giving me much of a high any more, and it was slowly and surely killing me and putting me in danger.

    so i acted like a grown up and quit.

    i saw it was bad for me, i stoped, and in no way does that make me a hater.

    similarily i ask you to look at your relationship, bush supporters, to this president, and ask yourself the same thing

    is this president the leader that you expect from the most powerful man in america. is he causing you more headaches than joy. is he as effective as he should be considering the fact that he has a republican congress and a republican supreme court and support from most of the media for the exception of the nyt, the wapo, and for a few hours a day cbs?

    are you truly in support of this president’s actions or have you just gotten into a habit of supporting republicans no matter what theyre doing to your well-being?

    you can love bush like i love weed but ask yourself what it will take for you to kick the habit.

    it took me 5 years of smoking and not getting high for me to realize that i was just going through the motions of smoking without receiving that euphoria, that benefit, that kick.

    has george bush given you what you expect from the president’s office since 9/11 or have you just let him off the hook year after year after year?

    i was not in the biggest defict of my life because of weed, i was not vilified by the world because of my habit, i am in good health and i was in good health, but at some point i took a long look at what i was doing and i made the conscious decision to stop it.

    i kicked the habit.

    i invite you to kick this habit of voting republican and supporting whoever does whatever regardless of what they do, because it is simply a habit which perhaps once was useful, but the thrill is gone.

    america its time to get off the pipe.
