What’s good stoners! This is Jay & Splint coming to you with another episode of A Stoner’s Journey. Today we’re talking about Weed Myths, which was a question submitted by the user Wesley Pipes on ForumDeStoners. If you want to drop us a line, simply hit us up on the forum. We check it everyday.
So what about weed myths? How did they come to be?
Today we’ll be talking about three particular weed myths and have decided we’ll do a follow up episode on this one a few episodes further down.
Weed Myths 1 – Cannabis Users are Criminal
The first myth we tackle is the one about how marijuana users tend to be more criminal in their behavior. We go through the reasons how this myth came to be and dispute it with facts.
Weed Myths 2 – Demotivational Syndrome
The next myth we talk about is a common one. Smoke weed and you’ll become lazy. We go through the profile of the average stoner in terms of jobs, annual income and why a change in perspective might be seen as being “demotivated”.
Weed Myths 3 – Gateway Theory
This is probably one of the more known myths out there. We dispute the gateway theory myth with actual facts, statistics and consumption rates, pre and post legalization.

What’s going on stoners! Welcome back to another Episode of “A Stoner’s Journey”. Today your hosts, Jay and MJ talk about weed introspection – is it a thing? While this might sound like a broad topic, the hosts actually touch base on some very interesting points.
Jay mentions in the episode that since he started smoking weed, he’s been undergoing a process of becoming ‘less stuck up’ about his ideas. He started taking a moment to look at things from a different perspective and thus entered into a cycle of introspection, questioning his own beliefs and so forth. There are many other cannabis users that have gone through the same process. In fact, even Reddit has a full on thread dedicated to this topic.
The fact of the matter is that when you smoke weed it shifts your perspective slightly, allowing you to view things in a different light. This is particularly one of the ideas that both MJ and Jay discuss in details within the podcast.
Does Weed Introspection work with everyone?
Obviously, this isn’t an exact science and considering that we’re talking about consciousness and the interpretation of reality, we can’t say this applies to everyone. However, the vast majority of the people who have smoked weed for elongated periods of time know that cannabis and introspection go together like peanut butter and jelly. There’s just something about the “high state” that allows one to enter easily into a state of inner reflection.
Tomorrow we’ll be uploading another episode since we got backed up over the past week, but don’t worry, from this week we should be back on track.
Thanks for tuning in again and we hope you learned something new with cannabis and introspection.

What’s going on folks! Today Splint & Jay answers a user submitted question about making money with marijuana. A Stoner’s Journey is a live discussion about all things cannabis with a new episode every Thursday and Sunday.
The cannabis industry is growing every year. In fact, it’s the fastest growing industry in the United States. With so many new business opportunities, there are many different ways you the individual can go about making money with marijuana.
In today’s episode, Splint & Jay talk both about making money with marijuana from the perspective of the physical sector and the digital sector.
Making Money With Marijuana In Detail
The first thing we have to understand is that the cannabis industry is like any other industry. The mere fact that you are working with cannabis, doesn’t mean that the professional appeal of the industry faded. Rather, those who know how to navigate the balance of being a stoner and professional [a Professional Stoner] are more likely to succeed with landing a cannabis related job.
For the physical sector, tracking down the right job can be hard. The first thing you would need to do is identify where you’d like to work. You can easily translate your existing job skills with a cannabis twist.
Electricians, Lawyers, Plumbers and the likes all have translatable skills. If you’re interested in actually growing cannabis, the trick is to make yourself appealing to a prospective farm or dispensary. People who have a background in horticulture and studied up on cannabis, you should apply with those credentials. If you can actually grow a strain, do so as part of your interview. Show people your knowledge of cannabis.
But where do you find these people?
At networking events, cannabis cups, hemp fests and the likes. You actually have to go out and meet people. Alternatively, you can also search online. There are a number of online sites that publish job postings. Search them out, update your CV to be cannabis relevant and do something outside of the box to grab the attention of the employer. Remember, you’re competing with other intuitive stoners.
The other approach is digital. All of these cannabis businesses require a digital presence. This means that they need content. They need marketers, designers, writers, video-graphers and the likes. If you’re good at taking pictures or designing logos, there is plenty of opportunities out there for you.
Finally, if you’re a marketing genius and know how to create serious traffic to a marijuana website. Then you can build up marijuana related websites and flip them. Many marijuana businesses, seeing that they can’t use traditional marketing, are looking to buy cannabis sites.
A million unique visits per month translates into millions of dollars for the domain. Sure, you’d probably spend between $60k-$100k to build it up. However, the reward is definitely worth the investment.
There are many on making money with marijuana. As the sector expands. We will see new opportunities arise. It’s your job to position yourself to get a job in this growing industry. If you are truly serious about breaking into the marijuana industry. You will need to create a relevant skill profile and pitch your services to the cannabis businesses.

Until next time! Happy Tokes!

Hey Guys! It’s Splint & Jay with another PotCast Session following our series “A Stoner’s Journey” EP 4. Today we’re talking about “Stoner Relationships”. Today Splint selected our main talking theme, however for those interested in getting in touch with us, we’re scouring ForumDeStoners with our own special section to submit questions, comments and the likes. You can submit your question here.
The big questions we are asking are, “How are stoner relationships?” “Is there a way to be in a relationship if you smoke but your partner doesn’t?”
Benefits of Stoner Relationships
In terms of the first aspect of our stoner relationship talk, we’re taking a look at what are the benefits of you and your partner smoking together. What we mentioned were the following;
- Marijuana helps to remove a bit of the “ego” from stoner relationships, meaning that you have a greater disposition to listen to your partner.
- Marijuana helps with anger and stress management
- It’s an activity that enhances the sexual experience in stoner relationships
- It can be applied topically, meaning it provides a deeper interactive dynamics between you and your partner [Massages, physical touch, emotional links]
Both Splint and I have had many years in solid stoner relationships. I have been with my partner for the past 10 years and Splint is going on five years. As you can see, these aren’t immature relationships. Our dynamics would have been completely different if we didn’t smoke weed, and even if one of us smokes weed and the other doesn’t.
What if one smokes weed and the other doesn’t?
Well, we came to a conclusion within the Potcast. If you are in a stoner relationship and your partner doesn’t partake, yet doesn’t have any opposition to you toking up, it’s all good! On the other hand, if you smoke weed and your partner says things like, “You can smoke, just not in front of me”, these are signs of trouble.
In fact, “Not Smoking in front” of your partner actually means “Don’t be high in front of your partner”. You don’t want to be in a relationship where you are constantly feeling guilty for simply being you.
We cover all this and more within the Episode so be sure to spark up a bowl and to listen to the entire episode.
As always, you can follow our Facebook to find out what we’re doing musically and be sure to submit your comments within the Forum De Stoners.
Also, we did mention we’re going to leave you a post about the Weed Stems, so here you go!
