Well I don't know what their deal is but I don't feel ashamed although I have sometimes felt like the odd one out when I'm the only woman smoking cause all the other women get pills so they gotta have clean drug tests.

I believe I bought my own pot once. I have always relied on the men in my life to provide it for me.

I've met quite a few female smokers. All of them were very cool and chill. But out of all them, only one would actually bring her own bud to smoke (and that's because she was selling). All of the other ones were moochers.

You might not feel as ashamed about smoking it if you bought your own and didn't have to beg men for some whenever you wanted to smoke.

/not a smoker.

Women don't buy because they don't have to.

Try being a mooching guy all the time.  If you don't share your own or buy all the drinks or contribute something, it just won't fly.

I have a feeling that she "feels ashamed" because of *how* she paid for the pot she got.

Ive known plenty of mooching guys. Act all buddy buddy, show up to "hang out", then as soon as the bowls done they suddenly gotta be somewhere. All the chick smokers ive met always brought their own stuff and gave it out freely. Meh.

I was a moocher during my teens.  OTOH I usually made the food or similar.   And hey, who doesn't like fresh baked brownies when your flying right?

/Still considers it mooching though.

A scavenger smoker is someone who never has weed of their own.
But as soon as you smoke it, here they come.
- Damn ! - What up ? - Man !
What's up, dogs ? Scoot over. Let me get in here, man.

I was "the guy with the car who never asked for gas money". I almost never had to buy my own weed.

/ You know... hypothetically if I had ever tried that illegal devil's tobacco . .
// Was that mooching? Or just barter?

Yup and I've known far more women who are addicted to pills than I have known men who are addicted to them. I guess they rationalize as "a doctor gave me a prescription for this so getting so high I pass out is just fine and safe,doctors wouldn't give people prescriptions for unsafe drugs!"

This.  I hear "I am a nurse so it's ok" from nurses.  This is extended to "I got this from Jane and she is a nurse so it's ok.  Besides it makes me feel better ((laugh))."

I read the whole article.  I thought about it.  Here's the big revelation I got from it:  Drug use and discussion is supremely influenced by social appearance and acceptance.

The article is pointing out that mainstream society doesn't think women smoking pot is 'cool' - or simply 'socially acceptable'.  Not only does this stop women from talking about their own usage, in states where it's legalized (and thus we have real numbers) women are less likely to seek it out - so it affects usage as well.

The article in a nutshell then:  Women smoking pot isn't cool.  If it's not cool, we won't do it.  That's a huge problem.

I'm not sure this really is a problem that requires active work towards a solution.  It's a social trend, like the mullet or a predilection to wear a lot of denim (which apparently is big again?).  Sure, popular artists and movies and even news coverage greatly affects how we perceive a thing, like the fashion industry and various corporations declaring which fashions are good effectively by fiat; advertising and removing alternatives from their shelves leaves the consumer with a biased perception and lack of choice.

The bigger question I would ask the author would be this:  Why do you care so much what other people think?  If that's more important than smoking pot to you, then your choice is pretty clear cut.  If it's not, toke up, what's the big deal?  You can't do it until lady gaga or some celeberity du jour does, assuming your friends approve of them?  You know how petty, emotionally immature, and small minded that makes you seem?

She claims to be an empowered, strong, feminist mom, SMASH PATRIARCHY, but she has only pot her own pot once and says it's b-b-because society judges her.

Some feminist. Mooching off of men's protection and largess and deference to women.

I honestly don't know how she can behave like that and still claim to be a feminist. She needs to stay in the kitchen, making sandwiches, and brownies, because she clearly needs a man's protection and a man's bringing home the bacon.

IMO if they gave girls a script of Valium or dones or something for " that time of the month" you'd never hear another word about PMS. I know just as many girl pill heads as guys. Girls just figure out how to get a script, guys are more likely to just buy over priced street. We go on and on a out weed needing to be legalized, I'm okay with that. But fark a pack of pre-rolled joints. I think they need to lower the standards on buying codeine. Regulate it like sudaphed, you cant buy more than x amount on a monthly basis. Oh, and this girl always shares the weed. Her pills...well...go find your own dr

Sounds like most feminists to me; every possible thing is oppressing her, men have everything, and it's all society's fault.

I've been smoking pot on and off since I was about 17. Throughout this time - we're talking 25 years- I believe I bought my own pot once. I have always relied on the men in my life to provide it for me.

Lady, your sisters aren't looking down upon you because you smoke marijuana.  They're looking down upon you because you're a whore.
