    I 100% agree with you. But that is a limited statement, and doesn't factor in pre-pot academic ability or mental state before consuming either a daily J or Steph Carpenter level bongloads that would make Snoop Dogg think twice

    Case in point, me. I was a pretty bright and absolutely bored kid when I started smoking pot at age 14. One year into it, and I was smoking before the school bus, once we got to school, at lunch, before the bus picked us up, and at night

    It got me a lot of new friends, and a lot of really, really bad grades in school that year. Quitting was pretty hard but I had a nice boost to start... my source took a summer vacation with family back in Georgia for two months. Drying-out was literally like a month long process of slowly watching the brainfog fade away. After that, I decided that altered mental states weren't for me, and I've been sober ever since.

    But, I never thought the Earth was flat, or that vaccines didn't work, or any garbage like that while I was high for that year, but I did seem to think that it was OK that I was insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and that I should just float through life not caring so much. What a load of trash

    I wouldnt equate him with a rock star level of intake 24/7 as well as the other substances dear Carl most likely didnt do. Far from equal if we're going forensic and not just making observations of general possibilities. I never saw him do an interview on acid/shrooms smoking a blunt rolled with a 1/4 oz of stickyness have you?

    Also, a little humor should be read into this... I am almost never dictating critical analysis of rock stars.

    Also, I suppose it's not too far fetched for a guy to believe in something so stupid who, from what I've read so far, has smoked more weed than Willy Nelson
    For what its worth I smoke a lot of weed too and ill go outside look up and think "Holy shit, its space! How do people not believe in space when it's RIGHT THERE?" Then I order a pizza and fall asleep.

    All I can say is, I've looked past some pretty reprehensible people to enjoy their music (Tim Lambesis, Jimmy Page, hell even Ozzy Osbourne) so I guess I'll do the same here.
