8 Statements Cannabis Users are Tired of Hearing

As marijuana rapidly becomes legal in many states across America, the many stereotypes that were once associated with marijuana users are beginning to fade. As more American's have access to safe and legal marijuana, the depiction of marijuana users will also shift. But there are tons of stereotypes that people are still facing today, and here are a few of what stoner's have to deal with and are just tired of hearing, because it ain't true! 

 

1. You are lazy.

Partly true. Because tie dye is awesome, but it doesn't mean that it needs to be worn everyday. 

 

4. You are paranoid.

Um, would a paranoid person pull out a spliff onstage at the MTV European Music Awards and light it? No? Didn't think so.

Jennifer Aniston stated that she smokes cannabis, and sees absolutely nothing wrong with it. And look at her friends!

Maybe I do, maybe I don't. Being high doesn't mean that you can't be a productive person. And just because you smoke once, doesn't mean you have to be high all day long! 

 

8. You are a hippie with bad hygiene.
