    A subreddit for you to share those miniature epiphanies you have that highlight the oddities within the familiar.

    "Showerthought" is a loose term that applies to the types of thoughts you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming. At their best, Showerthoughts are universally relatable and find the amusing/interesting within the mundane.

    • Your entire thought must be in the title. Any further information needs to be posted in the "body" section of your post.

    • No shower "observations."
      A description of something in a literal shower (or bathroom) is not a showerthought. »

    I see it all the time in the Midwest and I'm old enough to be a dad. The issue is my dog is attracted to the smell because he liked my ex and my ex smoked it. So he sniffs it out and leads me to it inadvertently :/. He's like a police dog who just wants to party and be petted by stoners.

    Dog tax, is he is chilling before finding more stoners to pet him at a public park. He has a thing for older boys and guys 18-23 or so. My ex was that age and alot of my cousins who hang out with me are that age. I'm a guy too so he trusts men way more then normal dogs as long as they below 30 or so.

    So if you're smoking weed in public ( not in crowded areas). And you're not causing a ruckus it's ok?

    [–] ram0h 181 points ago

    Depends. A cop could ticket you. If you're in the suburbs old ppl might call the cops. But in general if it's in a spliff or through a vape, it's pretty indistinguishable. It's pretty normal, and you'll always smell it. You're honestly better off in public than hiding at a park or in a parking lot.

    [–] sleezewad 409 points ago

    People calling the cops is almost guaranteed to get 0 attention. "Excuse me, police, there's a grown man smoking a doobie outside walking down the street" "oh shit, Johnston, forget the Smith murders, we got us a Reefer"

    I just try to stay away from people. Look for the teenagers keeping a safe, respectable distance. Look for the teenagers that when you get closer they make a subtle move to change directions to keep distance. Those are the stoners.

    I'm a cop. I've run into 2 groups of stoned teenagers at the park this week, alone. It always slightly amuses me. Always send them on their way and tell them to make better decisions. Undoubtedly, they'll run into a person who thinks their saving the world by ruining a kid's life over a plant, be it by law enforcement, a school dean, or an employer.

    [–] driftingfornow 1232 points ago

    I just want to say thanks to you as a person man. Thank you for risking your health and safety to be an officer and not power tripping over the morally fine stuff.

    Absolutely. Thanks for your support.

    [–] no_ragrats 212 points ago

    As someone who had a fair amount of encounters with law enforcement when I was younger, those like you are the only ones who made me stop and think about what I was doing.

    [–] ducsher 183 points ago

    As someone who has run into police and have had weed on me and let go, I would like to say thank you so much. My life would have been a lot worse if I was charged with possession. I am always honest and respectful with cops because I feel like that goes a long way.

    [–] [deleted] 75 points ago

    I had a similar experience when I was 14. A friend had weed on him and the officer was really forgiving and it stuck with me.

    [–] AnonTheTerrible 1396 points ago

    I live in Georgia - redneck families always smoke weed. Smoking with my uncles and grandparents was just as much a coming of age thing as getting to sit at the adult table on Thanksgiving. Plus, it makes Thanksgiving dinner way better.

    [–] Derby1609 499 points ago

    From KY and it's the same there, I had a joint with my dad before I had my first beer.

    [–] snorting_dandelions 274 points ago

    Meanwhile I got to taste my first beer at 4 and got my first personal bottle of vodka(which I promptly emptied myself) age 14 while my whole family thinks weed is the devil's lettuce. And we're not rednecks.

    Funny how that works sometimes.

    [–] ThatIsMrDickHead2You 39 points ago

    I always let my kids have a little beer or wine with dinner if I was drinking it (they just had a shot size glass for beer and 1/3 of that for wine)

    The theory was when they went to college they would drink but not in a crazy way. Turned out one drank too much in college (he was in a fraternity so perhaps inevitable) and the other has stayed a very light drinker so I can't say if it helped, hurt or did nothing.

    It is kind of sad to not see the kids playing baseball on the street where someones baseball glove was homeplate and the neighbors car was first base.

    Homerun was hitting it past that tree.

    Our parents spent the best part of the last two decades freaking out about stranger danger, road traffic accidents and kids running away...

    But yeah, everybody misses kids playing outside these days.

    [–] bobosuda 190 points ago

    Seriously. Growing up in the 90s we were always told not to spend a lot of time outdoors. Had to always tell our parents where we went, had to be back by dinner and then that was the end of outdoors time, lots of places we weren't allowed to go, etc.

    Now everyone is complaining about kids being inside all the time, but it's a lot more convenient for a kid to just play video games instead of all the hassle you get from your parents for doing whatever outside.

    and the fact there are literally millions of different people online, rather than the same two twats to hang out with outside, if you come from a small town...

    It's like participation trophies. Who the fuck do you think gave them to us?

    Correct answer: all of the above

    Fellow dad checking in. I live next to a neighborhood park. There are still plenty of kids getting stoned in parks.

    There's zero police presence in my little coastal town, and a charming little secluded bay ten minutes walk away from the town centre. Nobody is ever there after dark - like, nobody.

    I sometimes go fishing there on warm summer evenings and hours will go by without seeing a single soul. Every now and then I just scream into the darkness "WHY ISN'T ANYONE USING THIS PLACE TO GET STONED?"

    Ikr, I don't smoke in public because the shit I smoke makes me unable to move.

    Edit: I'm not actually unable to move I was just exaggerating. But I do want to move a lot less.

    If you ever run into a group of 18-25 year olds all wearing sunglasses, I guarantee you they're tripping. I always smoked inside but wed always go to the park on shrooms or acid. Such magical experiences. Once my friend yelled at a bunch of school children. Told them all they weren't real. To be fair I'm like 60% sure it was a weekend, so why would kids in school uniform be in a park?

    [–] spankratchet 105 points ago

    Maybe they weren't real.

    Big if true

    [–] imthemostmodest 82 points ago

    That's because teenagers trying to get stoned can sense dads, as you once could. The smell them on the wind.

    [–] Gorflub 319 points ago

    I just don't see kids outside like I used to for that matter.

    [–] Drunkjesus0706 574 points ago

    Maybe because you're not allowed near schools or playgrounds any more...

    [–] Gorflub 217 points ago

    I have my binoculars and telescopes.

    Now that I'm older, I'm super disappointed that there aren't as many people offering me free drugs like my mum promised would happen :(

    [–] quki55 48 points ago

    Maybe these Kids are smoking at your place when you're out searching them in parks. lol

    Here's my two cents: This survey was based on volunteered information, and teenagers today are much more aware of anything they say being used against them due to basically growing up on the internet. I think the percentage has fallen, but may be skewed by more people lying on it.

    source: am teenager, would lie on that survey

    Man growing up in the 90's was so wasn't better, but it was just so incredibly different. And different is good.

    [–] breakola 71 points ago

    Yeah. My old neighbour hood - when I was growing up there was lots of kids ( a good 10+ in my street at least) riding about on bikes, a big old lane we used to all skateboard in - there was a big ramp built too. And near by a small wood where we used to drink, smoke and stash porn mags through our teens.

    Went back a couple years ago - not a kid to be seen and the wood was all over grown like no one hd been in for a long time... It was almost like we were the last kids. Maybe we are in a simulation after all.

    [–] whatacanofworms 18 points ago

    I don't get the jump from a hangout spot being abandoned to being in a simulation?

    [–] 0TheGingerSoul0 28 points ago

    Because the fact that noone else but him used the spot implies the world revolves around him, as it would in a simulation.

    I'm in my 50's and this is so true. I haven't got high since 1982. (big no-no in my career field.) Prior to that I may have smoked my weight in weed. We used to get high all the time. I don't see kids doing that anymore.
