I have been dwelling on all the shit I do wrong…
maybe I need to check out what I do right on occasion as well.
I believe in freedoms in America, so I practice civil disobedience by smoking where people are allowed to smoke cig’s. I think that is more than fair…I am willing to put up with nasty cig smoke to enjoy my freedom to smoke my medicine.
I mention all of this because, by practicing civil disobedience, causing a “ruckus” about the mari-ja-wana smoke coming from the cig crowd, mention of police, and me saying “I am a card holder. I take responsibility for the whole thing.” I was also setting an example. A peaceful, within my rights as an American Citizen and a Birth Right of this zonie state, hardworking, example…for everyone around me.
I did a good thing today.
One guy asked me, “is it really worth it”
and I said, “yah, it is. I am the only person that has to wake up to myself every morning. I gotta stand up for what I believe in. I am a bit of an idealist. what can I say”
He said he was an idealist too. A cynical one. (lol)
I don’t think he really agrees with me and my decision…he likes me, he just doesn’t get it.
I am okay with that. I think this is why I am going to be single for awhile.
No one said this was easy. The opposition to allowing me to self-medicate is silliness, but it is there and needs to be addressed.
How do I best “flex” that right? By testing the right that has been given (freedom to self medicate)…a minor right to test…but a right just the same.
i dunno…maybe I am wrong in the eyes of another…but personally, I am the only person who has to wake up to myself every morning…and if I have to live with myself, I have to stand up for what I believe in. I can’t be a chicken shit.
Kinda scary. Scarier not to though.
