Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews: Uncle G’s Corner (#20) – Chronic Behaviour (2012)

Warning! Warning! Adult Subject MatterAge Recommendation 16+

25 March 2023


Seeing how this is an archival website, I’d like to introduce to my newer 420 readers, a series of essays I did for a non-profit pro-cannabis website out of New York City, some years ago. One that I’ve gotten involved with, back in the year, 2011. The webmistress was the wonderful Arlene Williams aka Ganja Granny. I love her to death! The website, Green Ribbon World, sadly disappeared here recently. I was happy and grateful to be a part.

Please note … regarding this republishing. We’re going back in time. Things were different. I was married for the second time. That union was dissolved one day shy of us being a couple of 22 years. Add the time we dated, and now it’s closer to 25 years. No resentment or hard feelings. At this point in my life, I’d rather look forward than backward. I wish her well.


Versions 2.0 of Uncle G’s Corner… I aim to clean up any remaining typos and grammar errors. Content remains the same as it first appeared. When I’m finally done (this could take some time) archiving all the past essays published, I’ll start writing new ones. In a way, I already have done so: Uncle G’s FUN 420 Reviews.

Uncle G’s Corner (#20)
October 2012

Topic: Chronic Behavior

I was reading a news story somewhere on the Web recently that concluded smoking pot more than two or three times a week made you a ‘chronic’ smoker. This was not a good thing, as defined by the author. Indicated that one was having a problem.

Chronic is defined mostly as very bad or serious behavior. Another meaning; is habitual. Again, not anything with a positive description. “Your Honor, Mr. Smith also habitually masturbates.”. If I was Mr. Smith, I’d either be sinking in my chair, or sitting straight up with a big smile on my face.

This leads me to start thinking about my own marijuana use. After almost a twenty-year break, I picked up using marijuana again while going thru a medical crisis. Was in the middle of treatment for Hepatitis C. Look in the archives of Uncle G’s Corner, and I’ll tell you all about it. To make a long story short, I finished treatment. Was blessed when six months later my Doctor(s) told me that all that suffering was worth it. I achieved Sustained Virologic Response (SVR) status.

I continued to smoke grass. For recreational purposes mostly. I’m one of those who think pot can make certain experiences better. Sometimes it can. I remember maybe a year or so back. Auntie S and I were watching one of those satirical comedy movies. Poking fun at whatever popular movies, there was at the box office, a year or so back. Still fresh in people’s minds. Shit was not funny. We were about a half hour into it when I broke out the weed. Loaded a small bowl, lit it, and the both of us passed it back and forth. When finished, we resumed watching what we concluded to be a snore fest. The same flick AFTER smoking was all of a sudden the funniest movie we’ve seen together, in ages (we’ve been together since ’93). Laughed our collective asses off. Tell me it wasn’t the weed. Nothing wrong with this activity, by the way. My personal opinion. Smoking pot where I am is illegal. We harmed no one. Had good quality husband/wife time in the process. Just pointing that out.

Back in the year 1992, I was involved in a car accident. An old man dying of cancer and diagnosed with Alzheimer’s literately drove his car right into mine. Was at a complete stop and then; BANG !!! I was sitting in a 1981 Olds Cutlass. Hit me so hard that the headlights of the vehicle I was in all became unplugged. They say (the Police) that he was going at least 25 to 30 miles an hour at full impact. Could have killed me. My tailbone was injured. Talk about having a pain in the ass (insert rimshot). Took about a year to get so I could walk without many limitations. Had to quit the job I had of being a pesky ACLU Union Organizer. A story I’ll perhaps tell in a future addition to Uncle G’s Corner.

So what’s wrong with smoking weed every day? Cannabis, thank God, isn’t something one needs to control. It’s up to the individual user as to what their bounds and limitations should be. Should it not be a mask for a serious and even perhaps undiagnosed mental problem, I really don’t see a reason as to why not make it a daily activity. Are there side effects? Less than the pill I’m taking for chronic pain on an everyday basis. That one could cause serious liver problems down the road. With pot, I might overeat. This could cause me to buy bigger jeans. As a matter of fact, I just did. It seems Uncle G’s ass is getting fatter. My love for Pringles? I also have a sweet tooth. When bored the big question is; what snack can I next can I stuff down my mouth?

Remember when I said pot can make things better? I just had a Yoo-Hoo. In a glass 15.5 oz bottle. Chilled. I said hello to Mr. Beaker (my newest bong), and then opened that cold bottle. Wow !!! That’s all I can say. One of life’s true simple pleasures. A hit of weed, and a totally artificial chocolate beverage. Imagine that. Such a simple pleasure. So good !!

Give me a human being who seems to be able to deal with life, to know their surroundings, to be able to know bullshit when they see it…and I’ll give you a good candidate for being a pot smoker. With one personality, and not eighteen different ones. I believe pot is a natural resource for us adult humans to use, whenever we want. Like water, it should be INEXPENSIVE. Even the good stuff. It’s a fucking weed for Christ’s sake. I could grow the shit in my bathroom. A karma thing. Make your dealings when associated with the magical weed, the same as how you’d like to be treated yourself. Don’t be ripping off people, and of those especially who call it their medicine. The pot community as a whole is good, but there are snakes around. Thank whatever higher power you think there is, that statistically being stupid isn’t a trait shared among those in and around the Cannabis World.

Why would a collected group of otherwise intelligent people, still in the year 2012, say that marijuana (their word for it 75 years ago when they made it illegal) is as dangerous for you as HEROIN when it’s not…and everyone knows it? It’s like busting a female for showing her bare breasts. Haven’t we matured enough as a society to say; who cares? Let the chick’s tits hang out, and while we’re at it, have her smoke a HUGE doobie. Right there out in public. On a beach. Without sunscreen. Watching the waves roll in and then the water retract, and go back out to sea. While the sun is setting. Far worse things to be all freaked out about, don’t you think?

Continue to protect the boobies and while at it, help protect and promote our rights to smoke Pot. Whenever we want. Should be a damn given anyway. Our President knows this. The Commander in Chief HAS a history with cannabis. Hopefully, Mr. Obama will correct the problem we face today; Cannabis Prohibition. Mr. President, Legalize/Decriminalize Marijuana — any time now. We’re waiting.

In Solidarity,

Uncle G
