It's the 28th day of the contest and unfortunately some people with limited imagination and view on contexts fail to imagine how it relates to the cannabis-culture. Thus the need to remake the rules and amp it.
First off, let me give you my view on the Smoke Network so I can show you where I am coming from. I never really thought Smoke was exclusive for the smoking public only. If we magnify on its goals, it wants to spread the movement worldwide to push for many things that will be good for the cannabis community as a whole. Primarily on the legalization of its use, medically and recreationally. For me, it means Smoke wants to reach smokers and non-smokers alike. It wants to give smokers the freedom to express themselves and uphold the lifestyle they choose which is growing, using, trading and whatever cannabis. On the other hand, non-smokers may be invited in this platform to slowly understand what cannabis culture is like and to possibly be a part of the movement to push for these goals, WHEREVER they are. Some non-smokers are non smokers because their countries prohibit so and for some it's a taboo thing to talk about it because of the many years that smokers are stigmatized as negative. IT'S TIME TO CHANGE THIS WAY OF THINKING, DON'T YOU THINK SO?
Numbers are power. If you want the world to unite and gather to push for changes, then you need to educate even the non-smokers of this cause. If you cannot imagine the role of non-smokers in this platform then boy your mind is stucked with the old days when smoking was all underground. How can you make positive changes to the Smoke community with an attitude that wants exclusivity? It's as if you want to advertise something on the streets but you don't want to make a huge billboard with a spotlight and a scrolling marquee. It's as if you never accept the idea that it can be one day globally accepted that smoking is for everyone. If the people behind Smoke wanted this exclusive then might as well had it underground and not like a public Blockchain. They could have made verification with show the world an "I'm smoking a joint selfie" or if you are in a country where it's illegal, show us an "I got busted here's my mugshot selfie."
I respect how this platform is specialized for the cannabis community. It's existence should always be in relation to its cause to promote and just do everything cannabis. But it's not all that. This is a Graphene Blockchain platform for Christ sake. There is more to this than what you just think it is. This is social media, this is an investment platform, this is the future. Who knows the non-smokers that are here will one day be converted? They will one day be the ones to push for legalization of weed WHEREVER they are. Who knows they have a lot of money and they will one day see how promising this is and would one day dump their millions to buy Smoke and make the ecosystem healthy.
I'm not a smoker, not anymore, technically, I don't puff it, I munch it. In a place where it's illegal, you don't go all out waving your weed flag and going about smiling high. There are lots of things you do to conceal your "vice" or what others call here as "addiction." Some people probably are too lucky to not be able to relate to that since they have it legal since they were born.
When I got here in Smoke, I was happy. I have been reading MASDACs and I knew one day there will be more specialized Graphene platforms for many kinds of people. Who knows one of these days, a specialized platform for retired veterans will be up? Who knows one day a specialized platform for people with chronic illnesses will be made. A whole lot of many other things will be made possible, a vast horizon. Along with that, many things are certain, it needs people, it needs investments, it needs promotions, it needs ENGAGEMENT and many other universal things. What it does not need are people who are too sensitive, intolerant and people who are anti-decentralization, those kinds that think high of themselves and wants to be put on a pedestal.
Let me tell you one more thing that is universal. Everyone needs money, thus everyone needs to earn. In this current state of the world, who earns are people who have diplomas, who have skills and all that. Blockchain has made it possible to let EVERYONE earn, regardless of who they are. Tokens are not mined, they are proofs of something. Proof of work, proof of smoke, proof of time, proof of effort, proof of anything you can think of can be made into a token and it lets you earn. A very beautiful thing. That is blockchain in my eyes, you let everyone enjoy it based on their capabilities and their willingness to do in exchange of the reward or the money. It is funny how some people will try to choose to put DISCRIMINATION in such an already advanced system that is so much better and beautiful. Imagine the possibilities of blockchain helping solve homelessness. Imagine the possibilities of the blockchain ending world hunger. Imagine the limitlessness of that beauty plus the idea of decentralization. Only people with greed will put lots and lots of gatekeepers to uphold their personal interests on such a beautiful thing such as blockchains.
We all can dance to the rhythm and the beauty of Smoke Network. My simple game the Daily Munchies Game may look like shit to some but this is engagement and whether you like it or not it's fun, nonetheless. It has no barriers to entry, whether you are a smoker or not because I have always been NON-DISCRIMINATING. Obviously the game can be all out cannabis and no one would mind. So, how come, people keep insisting it isn't even cannabis-related at all?
Now, I do not want to end the game but I have read how people belittles what I do with this game. I will try to keep it running since the prize I pay for the winners are from my own pocket and my willing donor (@infamous is my only donor, so far, thank you so much). I will be adding a rule to the game to give it more relevance to the cannabis community.
Added Game Rule:
Each entry will be required to link 3 Cannabis-related post at the bottom of each munchie post. It will look like an ad or something. Curating those cannabis-related posts is not required because definitely I will not require anyone to vote whoever just so they can join my game.
(Optional) You may add a Cannabis-related meme, story, joke, trivia or anything Cannabis. Just make sure to cite sources and do not at all cost plagiarize.
(Optional) You may put a banner of a call for legalization of Cannabis in your country, the continent or the world. It's up to you, show the community that you are one with it in upholding human's right to Smoke.
PS: The people who think my game should be stopped, please state your reasons for hating it and the violations I made to the Smoke TOS. I will definitely end it if I am made aware of such violation. It won't be a lose on my part, for sure. Thank you.
Lastly, thanks to @curationbro and everyone who has been helping curate my contest posts and the entrants. Feel free to keep joining my daily game. I appreciate all your support.
Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
