The Effects of Smoking Weed
Hey Dudes and Dudettes today were going to be talking about the effects of smoking weed. I mean c’mon who hasn’t gotten stoned before? We’re not pinning the temperate stoner to the cross, but we’re going to take a look at some of the downsides of being a stoner.
Some of the effects of smoking weed can vary, but in many cases there are some common ones that always occur. I mean who doesn’t like to walk around with blood shot eyes, a hunger for everything in the store and the motivational exploits of never moving off the couch.
What can be accomplished during the effects of smoking weed?
Bright Futures of Palm Beach decided to follow around a stoner for a week and see the upsides and downsides of being a Pot Head. We’re going to take a look into the life of “Mark The Dude” and learn more about the downsides and unmanageability of the stoner lifestyle.
At first we go to marks apartment and knock on the door and after signing for consent we’re invited into his home. Mark seems to be a very well-mannered man and very cordial so far as we can tell. As we walk in the house you see the kitchen on the left with some dishes in the sink and post-it notes on the fridge; a lot of post it notes. As we move into the living room it’s a bit musky and has the faint aroma of dank marijuana. The coffee table has all types of empty chip bags like Lays Potato Chips, Cheese-its, Cheetos and many more. We asked, “Why don’t you throw these away?” He replied, “I just ate all of these right before you came in.”
I could tell this was going to be interesting to follow Mark around for the week. We were allowed to follow him in work as well.
Day 1 of our experiment “The Effects of Smoking Weed”
After the initial day of meeting Mark and staying the night in his home, Mark has a schedule that would rival most juggelo’s. At exactly 11:00 PM the doorbell rang and we were greeted by Savannah. Savanna is Marks longtime girlfriend who was just stopping over for a nightcap and a couple Bong Hits. Our team asked Savannah what she liked about smoking weed and she replied, “I only smoke once a day, Typically after I get off of work”. After our conversation Savannah and Mark went into the room for what sounded like a ZOO had been let loose in the room.
At 2:00 AM Savanna left and at 2:30 Kristal greeted us at the door. Kristal doesn’t even smoke weed and says she doesn’t smoke Marijuana because he doesn’t like the effects of smoking weed. Kristal had just gotten off of work from a local bar called, ”Emo’s”. If there was one thing we could tell at this point Mark was a busy guy. Kristal left at 4:00 AM when Mark had to be up for work at the local coffee shop by 10:00 AM.
Mark was late for work by 20 minutes and hadn’t even showered or did his hair. We asked Mark if this is his typical routine and he replied, “This is the light side of my typical routine”. That night Mark was at it again with 3 other woman stopping over and bed time around 4:00 AM.
The Effects of Smoking Weed Day 3 – 6 of the rest of the week.
Throughout the week we could definitely tell there were quite a few side effects of smoking weed. The un-manageability factor hit an all-time “high” as the week went on. The house started getting messier and Mark was setting Lure Modules for his Pokemon Go Game. The Chaos that ensued throughout the week would rival that of a teenager. I have never seen a more intimidating schedule with such a lack of sleep and absolutely nothing being accomplished. We decided to wrap up our social experiment a day early due to the cameraman needing to attend to family matters.
Our Summary of “The Effects of Smoking Weed” The Downsides of being a Pot Head
Firstly, after following Mark around that week, we could tell Mark had issues with substance abuse and Marijuana addiction. Marks house became extremely messy as the week went on. He was disheveled and late going to work at least 4 out of 5 days. Most days Mark would wake up and not even shower. His room was a rancid mess, he never slept and he could barely pay his rent.
We were delighted at the fact he was willing to seek treatment for his marijuana addiction. Bright Futures of Palm Beach is after all a substance abuse treatment center. Mark has since gotten out of rehab for marijuana and we visited his house. His house is clean, he gets up for work on time and he found a solid relationship with Kristal who turned out to be sober for 3 years.
