12 Practical Reasons To Choose Marijuana Over Alcohol

3598e73f4f431e55f9b3882d0b41e5ef_545x436shkl

Weed or alcohol. That is the question that lots of young people are faced with every weekend when they decide to go out with friends or spend an evening inside. A lot of the time, people will just choose both but that is not always the best move if you don't know your limits. You might not be able to drink as much as you normally can if you have been hitting the blunt the whole night.  The next thing you know, you are slumped over the toilet seat seeing that food you ate to sober yourself up, coming up. That's never a fun position to be in.

So lets say you are one of those people who cannot handle both and you and friends are planning an evening of debauchery. You have a tough decision to make. A good night can be had choosing either route but in my opinion, a better time can be had with our friend mary jane. Here are some practical reasons why you should skip the drinks next time and just go with the trees.

No Vomiting

I've heard of people getting high and throwing up but throwing up off of too many drinks happens way more frequently. I am sure you have spent at least an evening or two with your porcelain friend after drinking.

Driving

I don't know about you but I will take my chances riding in the car with a stoner way sooner than I would with the guy that had 4 patron shots and 5 beers.

People bond during the cypher

Anyone who smokes will tell you that weed makes you feel peaceful and feel closer to those you choose to blaze with regularly.

You can cook weed and still get the effect

You can cook weed into so many things and you will still have the effect of that smoking it will have and people around you will not know anything. If you cook alcohol in things, you only get the flavor. What a jip.

You can still function on weed

Let's say you aren't going out and you are just in the house all day. You can smoke all day and if you are a regular smoker, you should still be able to function correctly. If you are sitting around the house all day drinking, I give you until about 12 pm before you are stumbling and can't put words together correctly.

Because this would never happen on weed

Enough said.

Weed doesn't change your perception of people's looks

I've never woken up next to someone that I shouldn't have after a long night of smoking. Alcohol is another story though.

I've never blacked out on weed

I've never blacked out off of alcohol either because I know my limit but the same can't be said for everyone. There are people who take drinking way too far and then they don't remember certain portions of the night which can be very dangerous.

No beer belly

I've never heard of a bong belly. Now everyone knows that you get the munchies after smoking but you have to smoke and then eat to gain the weight. After drinking, you are still usually going to be hungry for some greasy food but you will also have the additional calories that came with that six pack of beer you just bought.

I've never heard of Medicinal Jack Daniels

Weed has many medicinal uses. I could go on and on but I will take one example for this slot. If you have a hangover, smoking a bowl will ease your pain, taking a shot won't.

People get wild after drinking

I have never seen a fight start because someone smoked too much. People who are sitting around drinking regularly get into fight though because when you drink, you have the tendency to think that you are superman. It doesn't work like that.

Weed doesn't kill you

No one has ever died from weed in history, someone probably died from alcohol in the time it took me to write this post. There are any number of ways that you can perish after a long night of drinking. If anything, people are extra cautious after smoking so they are less likely to have something happen.

I have to give a big shout out to my twitter friends @ashylbowz because they inspired this post when they started a twitter trend a few weeks ago on this same topic.  Make sure to follow them on twitter.

The numbers of people needing drug and alcohol treatment (for hard drugs) vs. marijuana is staggering.

    First? Really? That's a first. I agree with this article, I'm high right now of course, but been driving all over town, telling people I love them and eating pizza, a very wholesome evening.

  • Matt Smith

    Cannabis cures cancer.. Google it..

    Matt and barney, albeit written light heartedly, it IS all true.. No-one EVER has died from sole cannabis consumption.. For someone to get ANY harm from smoking it, you would have to consume 1500 pounds in 15 minutes! The cbd’s would put you to sleep waaay before then, Cannabis cures cancer, google it, bing it, yahoo it.. Whichever engine you trust, rick simpsons ‘run from the cure’ will be at the top.. A little education goes a long way!! A ‘grown up’ would do their homework and take the ‘responsible choice’ matt, and barney, i call bullshit.. You didnt see it and your old man lied to you to scare you.. Instead of repeating broad innacurate offhanded hearsay that your parents told you, be honest with youselves, do your homework and come back to this with an adults eye on the big picture.. Cheers lads, been nice doing business with ya.. ;-)
