Around the turn of the century I started a website called Get to Know a Marijuana Dealer, where I announced that I sold marijuana and that I was not willing to quit, as a protest against drug laws. The site became kinda popular, but didn’t quite have the political affect I was hoping for. I was never busted for selling weed after starting the site, (though I was once busted before, which is what inspired me to start it) despite running the site for seven or eight years. Eventually I forgot to renew my domain name and an advertising bot stole it from me.
Anyway, I think I’m going to start posting some of the stuff I had on that old site, maybe just for the sake of my old memories. Here’s some of what I had on the introduction page:
I am a peace-loving marijuana dealer, science fiction novelist and web developer, designer and programmer. I run this website to tell everyone that I sell marijuana to my friends and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop me. Criminal laws are worthless and it’s high time humans stop thinking about legal and illegal and starting thinking about right and wrong.
The legalization of marijuana is not just about a bunch of hippies wanting to get high. It’s an integral part of world politics, that wastes countless dollars and innocent lives. Weed is a peace-promoting plant that has never killed a human. And it’s a plant that can help change the way you look at life.
The problem is that we pot smokers aren’t standing up for ourselves. We’re forced into a life of hiding and deception, instead of standing up and shouting “Fuck you! This is our god-given right!” like we should be.
So it’s time to stand up and smoke on the street at the bus stop; it’s time to smoke out the geeky kid in the back of the class; it’s time to smoke out your parents and your teachers and tell everyone that you demand your freedom.
…but also… smoke responsibly.
…because it’s also time to show the people around us that drug users can contribute to society, can behave like responsible adults, can use drugs in a way that positively benefits their life, and can have solid moral values.
…it’s time to stop lying and sneaking. Morally solid individuals are above that.
Let me put it to you this way: I’ve been telling the world that I sell pot since June of 2000; and I’m helping change people’s opinions.
Now, If you’re a person who can’t even tell the people that you love that you smoke pot… well… Just stop and think about that for a moment. Think about the affect your lies will have on you and the people around you in the long run.
The site ultimately became most popular for my book, The Beginner’s Guide to Marijuana Distribution where I unloaded all the advice I had on how to get into the field and stay safe and profitable. I plan to post that book on this site as well, since it’s still probably the most popular thing I’ve ever written.
