today my synagogue was having a debate between two rabbis on the jewish stance on cannabis and then the rabbi that was pro-legalization came up to me and used me as an example he said this as i stood there awkwardly high ” this right here, is the effects of marijuana he is a respectful young man that volunteers around the jewish community and he is a what you could call a pothead he is respectful of everyone here and i dont see why he cant enjoy a bowl or two as long as it doesn’t share with the younger ones” and i was just standing and thinking oh shit oh shit my family is in the crowd they are going to judge me so much but then after this debate was over they held a mock vote and my entire family voted for legalization and then i smoked a fat bowl with my uncles it was great. thanks rabbi. via Reddit
What an amazing Reddit post. Maybe it’s because I live in Vermont, but hot damn do lots of Jews love to smoke the marijuana. It’s so nice to see that somewhere there’s a synagogue which is accepting of potheads, and an entire family of Jews who will smoke some weed with you, you community-service-doing blazer. Mother and father and children, all around the Menorah, lighting the candle and a nice fat blunt with the shamash. It’s beautiful.
Your humble writer may or may not have gotten caught by his family, as a teen, smoking the marijuanica. Going to school in Vermont didn’t help stop all those really funny pothead jokes his siblings told during those post-high school Thanksgivings. Good times.
Everyone knows that lots of Chabad smoke tons of weed. With all these states legalizing (or decriminalizing) pot, when will Jews get our own version of Rastafarian Rabbis?
Maybe the Boston Chabad will be selling some hash in 2014.
