Things I miss about being a pothead

-Being able to taste each individual ingredient in a Golden Graham
-The heightened spiritual significance of objects and events
-Feeling psychosomatic effects merely from looking the High Times centerfold
-The notion of a High Times centerfold
-Using marijuana as a “gateway,” or “stepping-stone” to other drugs
-Arguing fervently that “marijuana isn’t addictive” while battling devastating marijuana addiction
-Adhering to the version of American history that holds George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are significant mostly because they grew pot. Vast, verdant fields of it.
-Secret meanings in grocery aisles: Stoned Wheat Thins, Baked Lays.
-How every movie was the most amazing movie ever, until halfway through, when the pot wore off
