The words “pothead” and “stoner” give the impression of someone who is frozen to the couch with only one thing on their mind: getting high. The truth is that stoners are creative, outgoing, exciting, playful, loving, and just as ambitious as anyone else.
Why we have to turn the image around
Unfortunately, for the people who show the best of what weed can do in their lives, the stereotypical image of those who smoke weed can ruin what they have worked so hard to achieve. From lawyers and politicians to pastors and parents, if one were to come out of the cannabis closet, mayhem would ensue. Cannabis lovers are treated with the same ten-foot pole that crackheads and junkies are when it comes to responsibility, reliability, and trust.

Slowly but surely, we are proving that cannabis is not the destroyer of lives it was once believed, but a life enhancer.
Making us better
Whisper is an anonymous confession app that lets users tell the unbridled truth without fear of persecution. Pot smokers have come together to share the secrets of successful stoners the world over. Chefs are more creative. CEO’s smoke to unwind and still lead successful companies. Nurses, moms, teachers, college students… People from all walks of life can do anything they set their sights on.
Being open and honest about our love of the green herb is the first step to change. These people are proud to be stoners, going against the grain of what others think they can do, and many praise the herb as helping them along the way.
