I’m actually writing to you from the comfort of my futon, in a bathrobe (even though I showered 2 hours ago), munching on whatever I can get my hands on. Its a lazy Monday– we all know real responsibilities start on TUESDAY.
And if your weekend wasn’t as great as mine (I set the bar pretty low, I assure you) then here’s a jam you can rock out to in your bathrobe or your ball gown:
I love Dragonette, and they will be at Coachella– and for all you Persian Princes and Princesses going this year, EFF YOU. HAVE A GREAT TIME.
ANYWAY. this post is mostly for the boyz. Because I wanna hear what they have to say about the issue:
Girls and Weed.
Trashy or Hot? Does it need a label?
I never really smoked that much in high school– probably a handful of times. I preferred de alcoholism. One reason was because weed seemed to be a guy thing. I didn’t know many girls that bought their own MJ, or had their own bongs or pipes.
This actually led me to believe that girls who smoked pot were either classless trash, or hippie vegans.
At my high school, classless trash meant your hair was greasy, your pants gave you a muffin top, and your tits were always hanging out. You smoked weed with the same dudes you probably gave BJs to.
Hippie vegan meant your hair was still greasy (or in dreads), your intelligence was trumped by your need to always be UN-conventional, ANTI-mainstream. And you smoked weed to make some higher-political point.
I’m sure its different for this generation (b/c I’m oh so old) or maybe in different locations, but where I lived, that is the way it was.
The other reason I didnt smoke was– weed smells– and my parents were pretty strict, so if I smoked and they smelled it on me, the consequences would be dire. Of course, my parents found my brother smoking weed, but he’s a guy and so the consequences were nonexistent.
Then I went to college.
My schema of what type of people smoked changed completely. I joined a sorority and while not all the “Sisters” did it, a good majority of the pearl-wearing WASPs did.
Soon enough, my girlfriends and I were carving up apples and enjoying some ganja.
I’ve inherited some lung problems from my father’s side (cue: AWWs) so I wasn’t in fantabulous shape to be smoking, but I’ve definitely come to enjoy CANNABIS in all of its different forms. Whether its an edible that takes me on a spaceship, or a vaporizer that clears my head– Mary Jane is the only white girl I’m always down with.
But there’s two contradictions I deal with when it comes to the KUSH/SATIVA/etccc:
1. I cannot get serious with a guy who smokes weed often. I have a friend who believes in smoking till he’s old and grey, and that is why he’s off the list of ‘potentials’. I have no problem if a guy likes to hit the bong once in awhile, but he can’t do it as often as me. And he can’t want to do it past his mid 20s. Sorryboutit, but thats my double standard.
2. If I tell people, or keep it to myself…I realize now that in high school, I was pretty narrow-minded about it. But, even now, I feel like there’s a stigma.
Definitely in the Persian community its not as readily accepted for Persian girls to smoke pot.
And when they do, they enter that category of “tatted-up sex-crazed bad girl.” And if anyone says f#ck labels, and stereotypes– its an S&f writer– but I also believe in being smart. Don’t put your shit on blast, smart.
One time, my friend and I took an edible before hitting up some bars. Probably not the best idea as the room was changing shape for me as I attempted to dance in place. But the bigger problem was the amount of Persians I ran into, being this high…
A few Persians in particular that I knew would judge me. Let me tell you: trying to pretend youre sober, while high, is probably the dumbest move, EVER. because then you just look like a paranoid freak. I just couldnt get it out of my stoned brain that I needed to put on a normal face for them, for fear that I’d be “labeled.”
But I don’t know, is it all in my head, or is it true– Is there a double standard for Persian Girls and Weed?
Guys, are you less likely to wife a girl up if she likes smoking that kushhhhh? Is it not classy?
Or have we entered the 21st century, where all is fair game?
