There’s no rule book out there that says who can and cannot smoke weed. But for some ridiculous reason, some people seem to think women should be putting down the pipe. Out of everyone who lights up, women hear the most BS. And honestly, the ladies are sick of it. From rolling a simple joint to handling their ganja, women can do it all just as well as the next person. If you’re one of the pot smoking princesses out there, that knows what she’s doing, then here are seven things you’re probably tired of hearing.
1. “You can’t be a good mom and still smoke weed”
This right here is perhaps the worst claim anyone can ever make. It’s perfectly fine to binge on booze. But if a mother wants to sneak a joint in her closet, it’s a crime and means she’s a terrible mother. How does that make any sense? Oh wait, it doesn’t.
2. “Smoking pot is a guy thing, but it’s gross when women do it”
If a man wants to toke, that’s completely normal. But its just not ladylike, some say. In fact, it’s downright disgusting. How do you even respond to such a sexist statement like that? You light that pipe, and you blow the smoke in their face, that’s how.
3. “There’s no way she knows what she’s doing”
First of all, women can do it all when it comes to the herb. Why do you think so many ladies are bossing it up in the weed industry? They know their shit, that’s why. From their rolling skills to their ability to inhale massive bong rips, never underestimate a woman and her love for pot. Anything you can do, they can do just as well if not better.
4. “Women that smoke pot are lazy and unmotivated”
Lazy? A woman couldn’t be lazy even if she wanted to be. The ladies have to work, take care of the kids, cook, and clean just like the rest of you. Weed is what helps them stay productive. Not to mention, it eases away stress, allowing them to focus on each task.
5. “Your standards must be really low”
Just because a woman smokes weed doesn’t mean she’s willing to sleep with any Tom, Dick, and Harry that comes around. A lady smoker is picky about a lot of things, including the strain she smokes and the device she uses. So if you think she is going to settle for just any man or woman, then you’ve lost your mind.
6. “Does your health not mean anything to you?”
It’s no secret that the herb can do a lot of things. Not just for women, but for everyone. From relieving painful cramps to lowering your anxiety, weed is medicine. So for someone to say that a lady who smokes pot doesn’t care about her health is just absurd.
7. “This must be a big problem for you”
The only problem with weed is the stigma still surrounding it. Not only is hurting women, but also the cannabis community as a whole. Never assume a woman has a problem just because they enjoy the benefits of pot.
