Today, we have many female faces representing cannabis in a positive way. From activists to writers, these women can nicely shape our image as users. However, there’s still a bit of stigma surrounding women that smoke weed. In fact, we women hear the stereotypes almost every single day, but we laugh them off. Why? Because they are far from the truth, of course. Sooner or later, these aggravating cliches will vanish. But until then, let’s continue to laugh them off, shall we? Here are eight hilarious myths about women who enjoy weed.
1. We aren’t successful
In the past, lady-smokers were commonly portrayed as stoners in many movies/television shows. As a result, people made the assumption that we lack motivation and goals. However, it’s a new day and age, sister.
With shows like Mary+Jane on MTV and Weediquette on Viceland, people can now see us lady-smokers as money makers, not slackers. And of course, they can see us enjoying our weed while doing so.
2. We are hermits
This myth is perhaps the most stupid of all. Apparently, if you are a weed-smoking woman, you don’t ever go out.
Although we love our nights in with our weed, television shows, and snacks, that doesn’t mean we never leave the house.
3. All of our friends smoke too
Sure, it’s always awesome to have friends that will smoke weed with you. On the other hand, there’s more to building a friendship than just pot.
Whether it be bonding over music or liking the same type of clothing, there are plenty of other interests that friends have in common. Although having a pal that smokes pot is a plus, we aren’t going to kick them to the curb if they don’t.
4. We only date smokers
Although some women prefer to date people that share their love for the herb, it’s not a must-have for us all.
In fact, many of us have probably dated a non-smoker at least once in our lifetimes. So long as they support our choice to partake in using cannabis, that’s all that matters at the end of the day. Plus, more weed for us!
5. Kids are a no-go
On the contrary to this myth, there are plenty of pot-smoking moms out there. In fact, cannabis is perfect for moms because it keeps them from wringing their kids’ necks.
6. All we do is consume cannabis
We get it, there’s more to life than just pot. Although we love it so, some of us don’t consume as much as you may think. Not only are there women who are strictly midnight tokers, but some also only smoke a couple of times a year.
7. We began smoking as teens
As a result of legalization happening in many states, women of all ages can begin using cannabis. Although it may be strange to see your grandma lighting up, it’s just how it is.
Indeed, weed isn’t just for teenagers, nor has it ever been. So if our moms, sisters, grandmas, or great grandmas want to smoke, they can smoke!
8. We are just going through a rough time
No, we just really love weed. Whether we are happy, sad, or mad, we enjoy weed. Due to the stigma that still surrounds female cannabis users, people seem to think we turn to pot when we are going through a rough patch.
But we are just fine and would prefer if you let us enjoy our pot in peace. Thanks anyways.
