When I decided to start losing weight and being healthier, I basically ate frozen veggies, rice, and baked boneless, skinless chicken breast seasoned in assorted ways for like five months. I lost about 60 lbs, too, which was pretty great. Not so great if you don't like chicken, though!

So my younger brother had a rather wild night Friday evening. A wild night involving being forced to help a "friend" smuggle about $4,500 worth of stolen liquor around northern Ohio in the trunk of my mother's car while there were two other guys in the back seat of the car with guns. Possibly making sure he wasn't going to go to the police or anything. 

All the while, he's trying to keep anyone, gun guys included, from smoking weed or drinking alcohol in my mother's car, because years of hanging out with Metal Tony have made these scents very familiar to her. Who's Metal Tony? Not important. All you need to know is he's a family friend who has done about every drug there is  and won't ever shut up about his band.

And the night ended with him being high out of his mind and frantically trying to think of an excuse as to why he was out past the curfew our mom had set the next morning. And hoping that he didn't smell like weed or booze.

Needless to say, he isn't hanging out with this particular friend again any time soon.

He wants to tell Shrubs the whole story later though, so I'm omitting most of the details.

To be fair, he THOUGHT he was just being invited over to play video games and maybe smoke a couple blunts. 

He was wrong.

Speaking of weed, I had my first edible this weekend. A friend of my boyfriend's had a ton of brownies and they were SUPER potent. I took like a tiny bite of one, like a half in by half inch. It was chill at first and then holy shit did it kick in hard. And for hours.  When I went to work this morning I was still recovering. 

We watched that movie Nightcrawler. REALLY good movie, it's on Netflix right now. It was also really unsettling and I thought it was because I was high but nope, it's just a really uncomfortable movie. Jake Gyllenhaal is brilliant in it.

Speaking of speaking of weed, tomorrow there's an election in Ohio to get weed legalized and I hope by every fiber of my being that it doesn't get passed. I'm actually worried to death that it will.

Why are you worried about weed being legalized?

There's a lot I don't like about it, but I'll give 3 reasons.

1. I don't like the way it smells because it smells terrible.

2 I don't like the way people act while on it. I had a friend who smoked weed and his friend smoked weed and they were total a-holes on the stuff. They were loud and obnoxious and all out annoying.

3. I don't like watching people slowly kill themselves with drugs. Someone's either going to drive high and get themselves and/or others killed, whether the other party was high or sober, much like if someone was drinking alcohol, which I'm also against. Or, someone's going to overdose on it and instead of people saying, "Oh this is why drugs are bad for us," they're going to say something about how it's okay in moderation, but it's not. They say the same about drinking alcohol, which has killed a lot of people who decided to do something stupid under the influence, smoking cigarettes, which have caused cancer and killed a lot of people, but for some reason it's still legal and still okay, even though it's horrible for everyone involved. Weed won't be any different. People are going to kill themselves every day from doing it and instead of taking responsibility or doing something about it, everyone is going to turn the other cheek and it bugs me to no end.

You can overdose on water more easily and more readily than drugs 

Also, me and pheo were gonna watch nightcrawler. I've had chances to watch it with people but I've turned them down. Still waiting for Ben to watch A Separation

I make too much money to quit my job. If there's one thing I'd advise people who don't have a decent paying job, try to live below your means. If you're like me, and get a good job with good pay, it's really hard to leave and you literally depend on it if you live within or above your means. 

Not that I want to leave my job at the moment. But I won't be able to if I ever do. Not without dire consequences.

Yeah, I've always known I'm just going to be working odd jobs until I can make it as a game dev, so I've got a few places I can call on if my cash reserves get low. I know an upscale restaurant in saint louis that might hire me, and the contemporary art museum was interested in me working with them, too. But lately I've been trying to see if I can't get my hands on a job as a night shift security guard, or a toll booth operator, where I could feasibly spend long hours sitting and drawing without being disturbed or having to do other things. I used to be on a tollboth operator job listing email list thing, but apparently a lot of people want that job so I can't get it really easily. Anything where I could live in a tiny flat on my own and have time to work on illustration, right now, would be perfect for my life.

People are going to kill themselves every day from doing it and instead of taking responsibility or doing something about it, everyone is going to turn the other cheek and it bugs me to no end.

People do a lot of stupid shit that can get themselves killed regardless whether or not they're doing weed or alcohol or drugs or anything of the sort. Personally, I hope it DOES get legalized at some point (not necessarily issue 3) because then that'd be one less thing the state's wasting money on trying to enforce. And, also, my aunt has horrible grand mal seizures multiple times a day and marijuana is literally the only thing that has helped prevent them. So if a law's passed that makes it easier for her to get what she needs to be actually able to get through the day without having to deal with that and without risking getting arrested for taking the only drug that can actually help her, all the better. 

It's not just about the college frat assholes that want to get stoned out of their mind for fun every night or dumb high schoolers that are going to be stupid because teenagers are stupid. Marijuana, much like opium in small doses can be extremely beneficial to people with seizures and other neurological or psychological disorders. And even though most people getting in on that weed action are going to be using for recreational purposes, it IS the same as alcohol in that- YEAH. THEY ARE BOTH ACTUALLY FINE IN MODERATION. Because both only cause actual long-term problems when you're overdosing, and overdosing frequently. For every car accident or overdose resulting from weed or alcohol, there are thousands of people that are still perfectly fine. Because they aren't being stupid about consumption. Weed and alcohol are like guns and knives, really. Do they have the potential to do some harm? Yes. But whether they actually do or not depends completely on the person currently possessing them and their self-control.

And really, weed won't kill you. It can screw you up pretty badly if you take too much. Case in point, aforementioned Metal Tony. His brain's pretty fried, though that could also be the myriad of other narcotics he's taken over the course of his life. But weed in and of itself doesn't really kill. You are more likely to be killed by falling coconuts, choking, swingsets, tripping (as in clumsiness), cows, freezing to death, being left-handed, deer, pen caps, champagne corks, hot dogs, water that's too hot, jellyfish, autoerotic asphyxiation, vending machines, bath tubs, ants, and BEDS than you are by weed. And there's actual statistics to back all of those, so yah. Mind you, that's only weed itself, not what you do while higher than the stratosphere. Because that's all attributed to stupidity, which is the number one killer out there. 

EDIT: As it turns out, one man in Brazil was killed by weed... when 1,500 pounds of freshly-dried and packed marijuana leaves fell on top of his head from the 7th floor of a building.
