Well, I made it through Thursday night just fine without going out, though I came home from bowling just depressed & annoyed about the so-called friends I have around here.  It’s so tough to live in a tiny community like this one, mainly because it’s hard to find people who you truly connect with on a friend level. It’s an odd area we live in.. the ski resort to the south is a cocaine haven, and the town to the north has one of the biggest meth problems in the state.  My little town in the middle has an odd mix of blowhards, meth-heads, and pot smokers.  I know that half the population out there subscribes to the notion that pot is “harmless” and better than having some drinks or doing “hard” drugs, but I’m totally on the opposite fence.  TOTALLY. I cannot even begin to describe to you what it’s like to live in a community where such a vast majority of the people (young and old) are pot heads & more. I cannot stand it, and anyone who says it’s “not addictive” is totally lying to themselves.  I’ve seen SO many people have SO many issues trying to quit smoking pot – but they all swear “i’m not addicted, it just helps me to relax, that’s why I smoke every day.”  Um, you’re addicted when you need it on a daily basis! Go run a mile or something! I’m so over it.  I think I’m going to try and brave the snowstorm rolling into town today and head up to Vail to see my old college roommate from MN who does not smoke pot.  I need a break.


  1. Your mid-western values have followed you. Don't sweat it. As long as you're doing what feels right to you, then everything will be okay. 🙂 Did you see Katie Couric interview L'il Wayne about his weed consumption? It was a great journalistic effort.

  2. Yeah, it's funny that most ppl around here think I'm crazy for NOT smoking… and my MN friends think it's crazy TO smoke. It's a totally different culture/school of thought for sure. I guess I don't care so much if ppl smoke, to each their own and all that, I'm just tired of the girls I ride with doing it in the car I'm in and forcing me to be in a hotbox with them. I feel the same way about cigarette smokers – I used to smoke quite a lot, but never in an enclosed area where I'd be forcing those around me to "partake" in any way, shape, or form. It's just about respect I guess…
