Reddit Users Have Started a Campaign to Clean Up Their Favorite Smoking Spots

Reddit is usually just a place to see funny GIFs and memes, but one marijuana-related subreddit is using the social media site to help clean up their favorite smoking spots.

The initiative began on the r/trees subreddit, which is actually a forum about marijuana and not trees as the name suggests. The trend started when a user named RedArms219 posted a pic of him cleaning the trash from his favorite smoke spot, and he titled the post, "Cleaned up the smoke spot #StonerCleanUpInitiative."

The post received over 22,000 upvotes, the Reddit equivalent of "likes," and around 600 comments. The post inspired other members of the r/trees community to take part as well, and the subreddit is currently filled with pictures of people who cleaned up their own favorite smoke spots and using the #StonerCleanUpInitiative hashtag. The trend has moved to other social media sites, such as Twitter, and other marijuana users are posting their own pictures of cleaning up smoke spots.

Another Reddit user, OhMyGrow, posted today that the #StonerCleanUpInitiative is the type of action that can help tear down the social stigma associated with marijuana and help battle common stereotypes against stoners. They also encouraged the r/trees subreddit to continue upvoting Stoner Clean Up votes to get more recognition from Reddit to continue fighting the stigma.

So if you want to take part in America's fastest growing clean up initiative, pick up a few pieces of trash at your favorite smoking spot.

But the sad truth is that, for millions of Americans living in prohibition or restrictive medical-only states, accessing safe and regulated cannabis is still a problem. But does that mean that those living without access to the regulated market are abstaining from cannabis altogether?
