    Nowadays it's easy to be a professional stoner. Just get yourself a portable vape, and you're good to go.

    5. That we’re always paranoid.

    Only newbies let the paranoia get to them. That is unless you happen to be home alone on a Friday night smoking while you watch Paranormal Activity. Cuz that shit's scary no matter how blazed you are.
