Many of us started college this week. Some of you are starting your freshman year and it’s your first time being out on your own. You’re probably going to be offered a chance to smoke some weed. If you’ve already been smoking, you might be considering stopping while you’re in school. I did for half a semester. There are reasons why you should smoke weed in college.
It Helps You Deal With Stress
College is super stressful. I know, I’m currently navigating my way through it. The best way, in my opinion, to deal with the stress of college is smoking weed. Lots of college students deal with stress by drinking a lot. This is a terrible idea because drinking can get you into trouble, hangovers cause you to miss class, and drinking is just bad for you if you do it in excess. Smoke some weed and calm down. Cannabis will help put everything into perspective. I know this. Cannabis keeps me from freaking out about my grades. It allows me to chill out and relax. After that, I get back to my homework.
You’ll Write Better Papers
My freshman year I wrote put together my entire English portfolio and wrote my final paper while high out of my mind. Guess what, I not only got 100% on my portfolio, my professor also emailed me and told me that I had the highest grade in the class. She asked me if she could use my papers as examples to future students. Cannabis helped me write the best paper in my class. If you use it responsibly, you can too. By responsibly I don’t mean smoking in lieu of writing that term paper. I mean smoking and then writing your paper. Cannabis is great for brainstorming and writing rough drafts. Just make sure you edit closely.
You’ll Make New Friends
The best friends you’ll make in life are not people that you meet in high school, it’s the people you’ll meet in college. The chillest best people that you’ll meet are those who enjoy the herb. If you’re going to college in a new town and a new state, there’s no better way to meet people than the people you’ll smoke pot with. They’re way better than the randos that you’ll meet at a bar. These people will help guide you through the pressures and possible dangers of college life. They’ll look out for you, and they’ll be generous when it comes to food, smoke, study buddies, whatever.
College Is When You Should Be Experimenting
There’s no better time and place to experiment than college. Why not? For most, it’s the first time they’ve been on their own without their parents. You’re entering the strange, wonderful, and sometimes painful world of being an adult. It’s time to make your own choices and discover the person you are supposed to be. Cannabis opens your mind and opens you up to new experiences. That’s how you’re supposed to spend your twenties.
First of all, don’t let anyone pressure you into doing anything that you don’t want to do. If you don’t want to smoke, then don’t by all means. I won’t think any less of you, and neither will your friends, Smoking weed helps me deal with the stress of college and it makes me pretty damn good at it. I have a high GPA and regularly make the honor roll. I have weed at least partially to thank for that.
