Blind Item #3

It is not just former Tweeners who let their friends take photos of them smoking pot. A current Disney Tweener who is A list in that world and very pap friendly has been busted smoking pot and, unlike the other grown up Tweeners, this could ruin her career if the photos get out. Cell phone quality, but very very obvious. No deniable cigarettes. It is a bong.

I don't know any current A list tweeners, but it would suck if someone ruined their career over smoking weed.

no, the other one on "shake it up". zendaya i think. the one on DWTS right now.

i don't think anything short of finding an adult in bed with a dead child of the opposite sex would be career ending these days.

asher said...

Echo Bella Thorne

Dasha said...

Who cares about pot anymore? Everyone smokes it. NBD.

LottaColada said...

Cathy, i think it could be xtina!

SoggyCrunch said...

Zendaya

nightowl said...

Sorry Dasha, not everyone smokes it. Some of us have better things to do in life than get stoned. Not to mention it is still illegal.

Amber said...

Chloe Moretz does gravity bong hits alllllllllll dayyyyyyyy looooooonnnnnnngggggggg

All about Eve said...

I think Bella Thorne, she's always in pictures, so she's pap friendly. Zendaya is not in many pap pictures.

All about Eve said...

@Amber, or maybe Emma Watson! So dissapointed Hermione!!! But we were warned...

Amber said...

@All about Eve - Emma Watson would never do something like that. Her farts smell like lilacs.

di butler said...

Bella Thorne, and she's lucky if that's all the pics show, because weed-YAWN, coke-not not so much.

ethorne said...

+1 Amber

Cathy said...

Are any of the tweeners doing anti-drug psa's? It would be like that episode of saved by the bell; remember kids, "there's no hope with dope."

Amber said...

@Cathy - remember when Jessie Spano was addicted to speed? That was awesome. "I'M SO EXCITED, I'M SO EXCITED, I'M SO SCARED."

Cathy said...

@Amber - yes!!! But it was actually just caffeine :)

MadLyb said...

@nightowl - not where I'm at! :) I don't imbibe, really, but when I have, I've found that it frees the mind and helps one deal with underlying issues. Pot and other psychedelics can be very healing and eye-opening if used a certain way, or rather, with a certain mindset.

xoApril said...

Consign nightowl.

tara17 said...

I agree with Dasha, NBD. I don't think everyone smokes it, but in a world where alcohol is legal, it's hypocritical to ban pot, imo.

eris hilton said...

you mean a "tobacco water pipe"?

lazyday603 said...

Smoking a bong won't kill anybody's career. It may cause a break with Disney or Nick but those worlds are too sealed off from the rest of showbiz anyway. Getting out of there before the born on dating stamped on the back of your neck expires is probably a good career move. Take a job on an HBO, Starz or Showtime series & your career will last a lot longer. And this sounds like Bella Thorne.

leemonada76 said...

Bridget mendler is always on disney, the only programming my 4 yo lets me watch.

Mooshki said...

It's illegal everywhere. May not be against state law, but it is still against federal law.

CHLOE MORETZ FTW!!!!!!!!

SueRH said...

I'm not pro-drug, but I have seen shows about psychiatrists using it in therapy. I'm talking about X and LSD.

rejectedcarebear said...

Amber my band is called The Jessie Spano Breakdown

sarah.estell said...

I'm going with Bella Thorne because of the "pap friendly" comment. Zendaya isn't papped that much - or at least she wasn't. And Thorne has been acting older than her age since she was 12.

Sherry said...

Not to mention there are medicinal reasons around pain management for cannabis. The highest growing sector of users is now elderly people. Not everyone does it to get stoned.

Mango said...

Totally Chloe Moretz. Poor drug addled thing.

I was walking behind Emma Watson once at LAX when she cut one and it smelled like hydrangeas, not lilacs. That's probably why so many of us *hate* hydrangeas, because that damned Emma Watson ruined them for us!

texas rose said...

Did anyone catch Chloe Moretz interview yesterday where she said she would never end up like lohag or bynes? Given what I've heard about her on this site I thought that was interesting.

nightowl said...

Ahh yes, all those poor, sick young people in California with their medical marijuana cards. Pain management. Yeah, the pain of having to grow up and act like an adult certainly does need to be managed. Keep coming up with excuses as to why you or others need the crutch of marijuana. Grow up, be an adult and face the world without drugs (or alcohol).

Hollyweird said...

@nightowl ooooooookay judgie!

Sugar said...

Sounds like someone needs a power bong rip!

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Selena Gomez? She seems so sweet and smart, beside the Bieber thing of course.

PuggleWug said...

Moretz is an ass to ass virgin, that is what she meant, Texas. She's down for anything ese though.

Nightowl, I live in a state in which medical marijuana is "legal". The are places that can refer patients (those with cancer, AIDS, numerous other illnesses) to caregivers (growers), to supply the proper strains for each ailment. It very much is beneficial to those suffering.

Perhaps reading more about this, instead of making your judgements without knowledge, would be good for you.

fordellcastle said...

@Me-I agree with you, but imagine it would take a dead child of the same sex...they will occasionally overlook pedophilia, but gays are still locked in closets.

LilDeathBear said...

@nightowl

You know doctors, lawyers, teachers, police, and many people you think are respectable, they buy and smoke cannabis. I don't smoke pot, I use pot to cook my food! Then again here I am a gun wielding, pot head hippie from california!

texas rose said...

Pugglewug - thanks for clearing that up. She may be A2A virgin but I am sure she is well versed in the anal arts.

texas rose said...

@Mango - Are you sure it wasn't a queef? (from emma Watson)

nightowl said...

Judgmental, no. Sick and damned tired of paying for others to sit around on their asses and smoke weed and not work. Don't try to sell me on the old "most people who smoke pot are productive citizens" shit. I live in an area with a high level of pot usage and the vast majority of them are on the dole. No motivation, no drive and happy to accept the handouts that are given to them.

And for every cancer patient smoking pot for pain management, there are 10 potheads claiming back pain (or fibromyalgia) as their medical problem. I have no problem with someone facing a truly terminal illness (cancer or AIDS) smoking pot. The pain associated with those diseases is horrible and they deserve to spend their remaining days or months doing whatever it takes to relieve that pain.

As far as doctors, teachers and police smoking it - if they do, they need to lose their jobs. Cops need to be stone cold sober when handling firearms, as do doctors when they are making life and death decisions. Teachers smoking pot would explain the things that are happening today in our schools.

Like it or don't like it folks, pot (or any other drug - and yes, alcohol) is simply something to use to escape the harsh realities of life. Adulthood isn't easy. No one said life is fair. Deal with it head on. You'll be a happier and better person for it.

Oh, and before you accuse someone of making judgments, learn how to spell it.

lazyday603 said...

Weed prohibition is about where alcohol prohibition was in 1932. It's not long for this world. The tax revenue it will generate alone will convince enough lawmakers to get onboard eventually.

CraftyGirl said...

Ha ha, thanks @nightowl for the nice usage of irony:
"Oh, and before you accuse someone of making judgments, learn how to spell it."

Anna Nonymous said...

Night owl: People from all walks of life use pot,believe that, including the President of the f'ing United States ( in the past), AND the welfare person down the street. Remember when people used to say it was welfare that made people lazy? Before that it was being black? Or being a woman? Or being italian? or catholic? Now you're going to say dear sweet innocent never done anything to you pot is to blame? what about people abusing alcohol? is that sick? should it be illegal? are you going to run in to their homes and pull the drinks out of their hands? don't be so judgemental nightowl. Are you perfect? Do you drink alcohol? Do you drink coffee? Because if you do then you are a drug addict and using them to escape the HARSH REALITY OF LIFE, which you're so quick to dole out, assuming we don't already. saying that we should all buck up and deal with it, do you think none of us ARE facing life and it's HARSH REALITY? dealing with the economy, home foreclosures, other crap like that? Are we all hiding behind our weed? doing nothing? we are at least able to drag our lazy out of work on food stamps asses to the keyboards and type every day, we must be affluent enough to afford computers, wifi and electricity. Oh, and by the way, when the cops confiscate peoples drugs they either do them (mostlikely), sell them or trade them to drug addict hos for sex. If that officer won't the next one in the "evidence room" will. Cops should be clean! Ha! And doctors should be clean! Do you have any idea how many doctors are on charlie sheen's level of taking coke, booze, pills, etc.? The night before they have to go in and operate on ol uncle merv? And are you seriiously telling me that the underpaid, over educated teachers of our nation shouldn't be allowed to relax with a joint at the end of a long day of supervising, training, teaching, corraling, disciplining, YOUR precious angels? it must be nice living in the tiny, tidy little box of yours, the only problem is there's no accounting of, or consideration of reality, and the needs/wishes of others. Your family must be thrilled with you. Those family get togethers at your house must be a blast!

Count Jerkula said...

@sugar: or a stick removed from their tush

Count Jerkula said...

@mooshki: its only illegal if yer dumb enough to get caught.

Anna Nonymous said...

And yes I am in California, and I do have a weed card, and I do have back pain.

Count Jerkula said...

YOU ARE ALL WRONG ABOUT CHLOE! They girl is prolly too busy smokin crack and cawk to mess around with weed.

Anna Nonymous said...

I am sorry I brought your family in to it though, my family doesn't drink or smoke pot, so my get togethers are nothing to brag about either.

Mango said...

@ texas rose - Emma was walking with her pinkies in the air (she's British you know--they do that) so it might have been, but it was so LOUD and odoriferous I was appalled. She makes that little slapper Chloe Moretz look like a lady, and that's saying alot!

SueRH said...

"trade them to drug addict hos for sex" - whaaaaaaaaaattt? You've got some f'd up cops where you live!

Lucas said...

Does Jesus get a pass on wine since he was just using it to escape the harsh reality of his impending crucifixion?

Amber said...

@Lucas - Jesus is the OG Bootlegger.

nightowl said...

Sorry Anna, I don't consume caffeine or alcohol. And laziness doesn't come from one's race, creed or gender - it comes from within.

If you have cops where you live doing things like that, you (and your community) need to work together to rid yourselves of such dirt bags. As to the docs, I have been around docs and hospitals my entire adult life and haven't met one that is living on coke. There is one who is a drunk, but he lost his hospital privileges and those who do go to him (cash only services) know that he is a drunk.

And pot did do something to me. A stoner drove into my house one afternoon when he was higher than a kite. Never worked a day in his life, collects checks from the government, doesn't have insurance. Luckily no one in my home was injured, but of course he didn't have the insurance to fix my home.

And family get togethers in my family are a blast. We don't have to have alcohol or drugs at them to have fun. We love each other and have fun just being together. We understand how precious life is and how it needs to be cherished. And no, we're not religious (that ended a few generations ago) so don't throw that out there. We aren't the Duggars.

Teachers are in no way overworked or underpaid. If they didn't want to teach my precious angels, they didn't have to become teachers. The government didn't make them choose that profession. They work 185 days a year, 6 hours a day (with a prep period and lunch) and in my area the starting salary for a new teacher is more than the median family income in our county. I'm tired of that line of BS that teachers are underpaid and overworked. There was a day that they were underpaid, but that ended years ago. Not to mention that once they get tenure they have a job for life. No worries about job performance, nothing. And overeducated? A B.S. is overeducated? I've seen the course requirements for most education programs in my state - I've seen high school programs that are harder.

I feel sad for you Anna that you live such a dark, pessimistic life. Maybe if you didn't, you wouldn't feel the need to look to drugs and/or alcohol to escape. Oh, and you might know how to spell judgmental.

nightowl said...

Oh how edgy of you Lucas! All your little stoner friends here on CDAN are SOOOO impressed!

Meanie Reese said...

I see someone needs a rousing session of ass to ass to get the bug out of their ass.

Chloe Moretz!! Chloeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

GemTwist said...

Can everyone please quit arguing with Nightowl about pot? She has SEEN people on the weed, ok? They live ALL AROUND HER. And they are ALL WELFARE QUEENS TRYING TO DESTROY HER HOUSE. The lady is obviously an expert on the subject.

Anna Nonymous said...

I don't want to fight, I have enough issues in my personal life to get worked up here. What I wrote is just my opinion. It makes sense if a out of work, on government assistace stoner ploughed in to your home, that you would have a specific beef against that type of person. I would too. But it's a little too simplistic to extend that person's choices, on a group of diverse people that happen to enjoy the same drug. Teachers are in no way overworked or underpaid? How would you know what Doctor's do in their time off? or in their offices? In my area, my sister is a qualified teacher and can't get work, because of her credentials/degree/etc make her overqualified for almost every job. But she doesn't smoke pot, do other drugs, drink, or drink coffee either. And for the record I don't drink coffee, drink, smoke cigarettes, and I've never been on governent assistance of any kind, and pot is the only drug I do. And my mispelling of judgmental, (which google says is spelled with an e, I didn't have a dictionary handy), has absolutely nothing to do with my arguments, so you can stop being so self righteous about knowing how to spell judgmental. See what I did there, I took in outside information from someone else, you, and I learned. Something you might want to think about. I don't feel pessimistic or dark about my life at all. I don't know where you got that idea. I live with and accept that there is a very harsh side to the reality of this world. Have the child abuse, molestation, mother and sister pimping, drug abuse, blackmail and other horrible things that we read about every day in the blind items on this site alone taught you nothing? The world is not a safe, simple place where being a stoner will force you to live off the government and plough in to homes, that was just that one guy. I think that you live in too simplistic and rigid a world, one filled with face value judgements. That would make you judgmental. See I can do it too.

Anna Nonymous said...

oh and by the way, I didn't get to proof read or edit the post above, the reason for that is because I'm at work, paying taxes, so stoners can stay home and live on welfare.

Gayeld said...

Wow, I consider myself a bit on the judgmental side when it comes to drug use, but you're making me look like Timothy Leary.

And really, snotty comments about someone's spelling? Isn't that the last resort of the troll?

Gayeld said...

@CraftGirl. Pot meet kettle, much? ;-)

Gayeld said...

@Anna. And my bio-father thanks you for your contribution to his 40-year streak of living off the Gov't Dole. ;-)

sleep_deprived said...

Haha

Anna Nonymous said...

One more thing, as far as police corruption? I should band together with other members of my community and clean up our local police force? You're joking right? I live in one of the wealthiest towns in america, and statistically rich white people do more drugs than minorities. It's just the small time guys that get caught. Is there an agency I can call to police the police? A phone number you can give me? 1800 BAD COP? Give me a break lady. This is not the 1950's. Maude, Ethel and me aren't going to hold a bake sale and have a community parade, wave flags to stop police corruption. Pop Quiz Kids!:If you were a mexican drug lord, where would you put your excess cash that you have billions of by the way, when your only two problems are where to hide it and the police pestering you? Give your cash to the police, or the senator in your pocket, the congressman, the judge, rupert murdoch, whoever. Do you really expect the majority of human beings( who pretty much all have money problems) to not put their hand out when offered huge sums of untraceable cash? Just to look the other way to something that's already going on anyway, something that you could never do anything about if you wanted to????Really??? Far easier to look the other way, pocket the money, pick your wife up some roses on the way home and take your family out to dinner, knowing your car payment is paid for that month.

sleep_deprived said...

*claps*

sleep_deprived said...

Did I miss where it was said cops and doctors are smoking on the clock? Because no pot users imbibe strictly off the clock? They should definately join the rest of the pot smoking society and sit on their asses leeching off nightowl

sleep_deprived said...

You might want to learn too..its judgemental. Seriously. There's an e you keep missing. But keep snarking on other people's spelling, one of these times you may get it right

Any teachers want to chime in about how their NOT underpaid and overworked? Or the public knowldge that many classrooms have too many students? Must be nice in lala land.

Sherry said...

Nightowl..You really do need to do more research. These older people and those who suffer from serious pain aren't necessarily toking up. They take the THC and make it into pills. You come across as very angry. It could very well have been an old person who drove into your house. Would you feel the same way about them as well?

I can understand you being angry but I can't understand you being so angry to make a sweeping generality that everyone who smokes pot that DOES NOT use it for pain management is a loser living off the guv'mt (intentionally misspelled)or taking advantage of cannabis card rules.

And here's the deal..People who do use it recreationally aren't necessarily losers either. So to feel that anyone who imbibes, even responsibly, has something wrong with them is incredibly judgmental.

And for the record I do not smoke pot. And we do love Lucas!

msgirl said...

Well here I am, ill with one of the top 3 diseases that immediately qualifies for MM, a drain on your society - shit, I should apply for welfare? And all my professional friends who smoke a little recreational stuff some evenings after a stressful day are drug-addled welfare recipients! Did you know they are investigating marijuana oil as a possible cancer cure? Of course it's not in big research because it's a cheap fix and then Pharma won't collect their billions from their poison.

I've been smoking on and off all my life, as have many of my friends, and I am positive that we have better professional resumes than yours.

Meh why do I bother arguing with a judgEmental idiot on the internet anyway? Sorry everyone!

Sherry said...

And I also wanted to add my husband drove into our house too. Stone. Cold. Sober. I still love him. It's actually kind of a funny story but then I have a pretty good sense of humor.

Gayeld said...

Ditto. On both counts.

NaughtyNurse said...

Wow, people. There is a WHOLE lotta attitude here today. For the record, "judgement" with an E is the British spelling of the word "judgment." Here in the US, we spell it judgment. No E.

All about Eve said...

@Amber, lol!

Melpomene25 said...

@ Naughty Nurse. So, technically, everyone spelled that word (I'm too afraid to type it out for fear of a massive backlash) right!! See everyone, we were all right! Let's all sit together in a unity circle and pass the peace pipe around...night owl you don't have to partake, but we will get you those awesome fake candy cigarettes to "smoke" so you don't feel left out! I also want to apologize to everyone for any typos. The alcohol has left me with quite the hangover, the caffeine has failed to fully wake me up, and all I really want is some of the weed because I heard that it pulls you out of a hangover rather expediently.

Jenn said...

If the government had a way to tax it,and control the growing and selling of it, it'd be legal everywhere in the U.S. already. It's a monetary issue with them, not a moral one.
I've no problem with people smoking pot, because they don't get all nutso and mean. In my personal experience, they just want some fucking burritos and a coke, usually at 3 a.m. This would be a boost to the economy. Well, burrito sales would skyrocket.

Me said...

Dude, have a dobbie and chill. You're totally harshing my buzz. All the worlds evils don't come from weed: the worlds evils come from hate. Now lets all hold hands and sing, we are the world".

I agree with the earlier comments that the comment sections on this site have really gone downhill. It is sad, b/c it is a big part of this website. You click on the comment section for guesses and other gossip and now it is just a bunch of negativity.

juicy said...

As the wife of a cop in a state where pot IS legal, they are still held to a higher standard than the rest of us and expected to obey all laws, including federal laws. So, cops shouldn't be smoking even off the clock.
Other than that, it's not my cup of tea but since one can smoke legally here, I don't really care what others do.

nightowl said...

Hey sleepdeprived - judgment and judgmental don't have an e in there - check out the dictionary before 'correcting' someone.

Mango said...

@ nightowl, give it a rest. You've given your opinion and now you're bordering on being obnoxious.

PM said...

Hi nightowl, I was wondering where you live. Could you refer me to the school system you're referring to? That sounds fantastic. I'm an elementary school teacher, but my days are twice as long and I'm paid so little that I receive food stamps. I'm constantly struggling to make ends meet. I LOVE my job, & especially my precious students, so I would never dream of another career, but boy would it be nice to be compensated for my hard work & dedication!
Oh, & btw, I don't drink or smoke pot either. Mostly because I can't afford it. :-)

On second thought, I'm pretty sure your "school" exists on Fox News. I wouldn't get along there.

MizzSpiritualTramp said...

It is one thing to spark up a doobie and get laced at parties, but it is quite another to be fried all day.

Count Jerkula said...

Some people hate weed because relaxing and enjoying themselves isn't their M.O.

Personally, I'd rather never have another drink than another toke. I can enjoy myself fine having a doobie in the parking lot of a bar and drinking ginger ale all night. Then when I am leaving, I'm dead sober and fine to drive. With booze, I'd be at the height of my buzz and need a key bump of meth to guarantee a safe journey home.

I'm also a teacher. I love my precious angels and could not imagine doing anything else. I actually teach elementary aged children with severe autism who function anywhere from a baby level to right below grade level. That being said, I work 8 hour days with a 30 minute lunch break each day. Planning period is actually for planning and meetings. Two to three times a week I stay two hours or so after the school day ends to work on things. Generally this usually occurs in the beginning of the year, when report cards are due, when I have to write education plans and create the goals, when I want to plan something special, and at the end of the year. Oh hell, I stay after all the time. Plus on Sundays I lesson plan for hours since special Ed has nothing given to then like general ed does. I don't get paid overtime, but I'm held responsible to get things done and there is not enough time in the day. I don't understand How you perceive teachers to be underworked. I've missed family events, bring work home, work on my time off, etc.

There is such a misconception that teachers have great salaries and do very well. Maybe in some parts of the country. But where I live the cost of living and a teachers salary are not parallel. I am a single girl who supports myself. I have large student loans due to going to a top education program for my masters degree, which I assure you was way more rigorous than a high school program. Rent, car insurance, car payments, basically the cost of living is high where I live. Many teachers I know struggle. Some are on food stamps and government assistance - husbands were jerks and left them with several kids. Some teachers like me, single and in their 20s or 30s are left with maybe 200 bucks after bills and rent each month. All teachers spent their own money on supplies, toys, equipment, and materials because there is not a budget to get everything you need. We spend on average 1200 dollars of our own money each year.

Original poster, please go and talk to some teachers. Spend a day in their shoes. Just because you don't see everything we do doesn't mean we sit around all day while your child completes worksheets. I work my ass off to give my students the education they deserve. I go above and beyond because I want to. Please talk to some teachers and see what it is really like.

lalaland923 said...

Oh, I'd also like to add, tenure does not exist anymore in my state nor does it exist in the state where my sister teaches. Teachers can get fired just like everyone else. We are not set for life. Before I had this teaching job, I lost my teaching job in another part of the country due to teacher downsizing. There were budget cuts and they got rid of teachers. It is rare to have tenure anymore. Many states have gotten rid if it.

SophiaB said...

@nightowl, ignorance is NOT a good look on y'all. I am 55 years old, have a lifelong excruciating pain condition and traumatic brain injury. I have been prescribed so many drugs by 'traditional' doctors, none of which have done anything for me but make me sicker. I used to take 3-4 Darvocet a day just to be able to function. I am an adult and before my illness got too bad I had a great job earning excellent money, something I loved to do and was very talented at.

After stress due to my illness began taking a toll, I reluctantly tried pot. My husband has MS and thankfully we lived at the time in San Francisco and he had a medical pot card. I had smoked pot as a young woman and hadn't enjoyed it so my occasional drug of choice was wine, champagne, and an occasional pina colada or tequila sunrise.

The pot helped med sleep through the night for the frst time in years. It helped minimize the constant grinding pain. It helped minimize my gut distress. And I started to get better for the first time in a long, slow, grim downward cycle.

It has been clinically proven to be a neuroprotector (slows down brain lesion progress) for MS patients, in Great Britain, whre drugs are looked at for usefullness, not mind & social control purposes.

I am now off all pain meds and antidepressant/antianxiety drugs, thus minimizing the PROVEN danger they posed me. For instance, the MAO Inhibitor that was the only antidepressant my body accepted, that I took on and off for over 30 YEARS that had a known risk for causing a stroke (no no not stressful at ALL to know I could eat the wrong thing-over 50 common foods and have a stroke & become a vegetable or die!).

Standard pharmaceutical drugs kill a coupke hundred thousand people a YEAR. Marijuana is not known to have many side effects and oral consumption is widely known as the best therapeutic application for cancer, Parkinsons, Crohns, depression & anxiety, and many other illnesses.

So before you spout off and acuse people of being immature & self indulgent, nightowl, please kindly do the adult thing and educate your ignorant self. It is called Google and the information is easily available to people with inquisitive, curious, open minds. Hey, I just figured out another application for medical marijuana-for closeminded people with thst oh-so-painful stick up their butts! Try it! The pain reluef alone would be a revelation!

SophiaB said...

MDMA is starting to be used in the California prison system for psych patients with great effect and highly reduced medical costs. I know a prison psychiatrist who is realky smart & totally committed to her patients' recovery. She attends conferences on the subject, along with one of my spiritual teachers.

Sherry said...

I know some will see this as all of us ganging up on someone and therefore we are all bullies nut, as you can see here, there are other very valid points of view from a defense of what teachers truly experience to how there are other ways people must manage their pain. That was my original intention.
We must try to understand why you feel the way YOU do, amd you certainly could have done that, and others want you to walk in their shoes as well. Let's ALL not so pedantic we cannot try to understand.

Amen to the teachers. They have a job I could, never would do.

SophiaB said...

If you live in an area where a lot of people are on tge dole and using meds, i am curious as to the economic situation. Probably not good.

I have firomyalgia. It is not in my head. I know plenty plenty plenty of people in all areas of California who have medical marijuana cards. None of them are using it as a cover story for being a pothead. Too expensive to get the card unless you have a serioys condition and want to try to get some legal protection.

I am sorry you are surrounded by people you don't respect but accusing EVERYONE who uses pot for medicine as young and irresponsible is just plain rude and ignorant and offensive.

And by the way I was a technical editor and my spelling mistakes are due to this damn Android keyboard which makes so many mistakes. Not easy to find and fix them all and i just don't care any more.

SophiaB said...

THANK YOU! word!!!

MizzSpiritualTramp said...

Well said, @Sophie B!! Well said!!

SophiaB said...

I think the reaction comes from the generalization and the dismissal and hmthe assumption that everyone is on the dole. That is simply rude and unnecessary and easily countered by a simple google search. Disrespectful assumptions should not go unaddressed. In my humble opinion. Especially on a site that is pretty damn good at welcoming all points of view.

Since nightowl has a complaint about a single if highly unpleasant and unfortunate incident he/she might consider confining the complaint to that individual.

And just to be helpful-because that is just me-if you live in California there is a fund for the victims of crimes. @nightowl, look it up.

And my final question is: didn't you have enough insurance on your house to pay for the repairs? Or were you irresponsible to not have sufficient coverage? How does it feel to have the kind of assumptions you make about others turned back on you nightowl?

Ya know-people are trying to do their best in a weird, expensive, crazy world, abd it would just be nice if folks stopped BLAMING each other.

I am nit at fault for my disability and I challenge ANY OF YOU to go through what I have since an asshat turned left in front of me on a green light. And ruined my damn life.

Nightowl you have no f'ing clue what you are talking about. I lost 15 years of income, have zero retirement savings, $40K in debt and cannot get disability. I kept workinf fir 10 years after the collision until I had to stop bevause I was no longer able to function. I had worked as a contractor because I did not dare trying to work 40 hours. That limited my ability to save due to the lack of regularity pist-9/11 in my field. I did every job I coukd think of. I never gave up. I even tried several MLMs and just spent money I did not have.

So don't EVEN talk about things you cleatly know NOTHING OF.

Our system is poorly designed and horribly corrupt. Even here in Canafa, where I now live, socialized medicine and insurance is very difficult to access and navigate. It is waaayyy worse in the US though.

Nightowl, your problem is with the insurance system. I am curious what you would have said if it was an underinsured drunk driver (goddess forbid if of some other nationality!) Instead of a pot smoker.

Sigh. Moving on now.

A clsed mind doesn't crack open with logic. I know this. Just so frickin' sick & tited of the judgment. I get it enough from my own family. I sure don't need it HERE.

MSGirl, you hang in there and keep taking that neuroprotector! You are doing exactly the right thing!!

I don't think anyone should be judging anyone who has chronic, intractable pain. I have been through that w back pain and I understand how debilitating it can be. My pain wasn't even that bad...usually around 5-6 on a scale from 1-10, but it colored every aspect of my life.

Saying the exacr same thing someone just said to you kinda loses whatever impact you were going for. And its an acceptable spelling. Someone as intelligent as you should know that ; )

Slow clap for Sophia. I get the idea Nightowl left a long time ago. Her usr of the word Dole makes me think she could be from the UK.

I agree nightowl. I smoke all the time but I'm glad not everyone does it. Many people get super weird and paranoid, wouldn't want all of society to go down the drain because they can't handle a lil bud :).

Slow clap for all of you guys. I really didn't mean to gang up on NightOwl, just wanted to educate and inform, and found myself reacting a little ( ok alot) and offended at the knee jerk judgements and off the wall convictions. If something works for you, and you're not hurtin anyone, I dont care what the hell you do. Live youre life, enjoy it, be happy. That's what my Grandmother told me," enjoy youre life, that's all that matters." And if pot helps you get through pain, whatever kind it is, then I am not going to be judgemental. ;)
