    We both smoke weed almost daily, and honestly, I can’t think of any of our friends who don’t. We’re normal people with children, careers, good lives. I don’t see what’s wrong with it.

    @rachelmichelle:  I blame that on the person not the product… These are probably the same people that don’t care where their clothing came from (chinese sweat shops most likely), or where  their food came from or contains (mmmm mcdonalds burgers), or where their hard earned money goes on a regular basis (corporations over local business). The same is true for pot, clothing, goods, food, money, really just about anything we consume…. Some people care about their environement & surroundings & try to actively think about their impact in all areas whereas others couldn’t give a shit. 

    My opinion is that the people that use it & end up not doing anything with themselves really have no plan to do anything with or without pot. It doesn’t matter if they have a joint or not, if they don’t have motivation or goals for themselves (weed or no weed) they aren’t going anywhere. So please blame the person not the product =)

    Lots of my family does. My DH and I don’t but I’m not against it. I think it’s totally fine. I haven’t ever wanted to try it nor smoke it because the hacking when  you take a puff turns me off from it. lol I know alot of people who are nicer stoned then when they are sober. Almost all of my ex bf’s did it and it didn’t bother me. I just told them they pay for it I won’t.

    most mature adults dont do drugs. so, I am not surprised by these results on a wedding website (mature people in mature relationships)

    I see no issue with smoking, frankly I’d be much more concerned if someone was drinking every night or popping prescription pills. I think it’s because living in LA made me realize that there are completely functional potheads all around and you can’t even tell. Parents, executives, lawyers (!!), etc. The myth of the stoned raver type dude is just that, a myth. If it relaxes you at the end of the day, go for it!

    Absolutely not.  Both of us would get fired from our jobs, especially DH, if we smoked weed.  Both of us have also never, ever tried it and don’t care to even if it wouldn’t get us fired.  We still have some friends who smoke and I think it’s so disgusting, but whatever.

    @atlbride2013:  I wondered the same thing. The CEO of my old company smokes weed and every timE he came around or spoke at trainings he seemed like a “mature” adult to me And also doing much better than the average person. He was the CEO of Progressive Insurance.

    I do not smoke and my Fiance is in the navy but this thread is interesting…..

    @bestbuddies:  Ifind it interesting that you associate marijuana with maturity. 

     

    So the doctors who use marijuana are not mature?

    Th teachers are not mature?

    The 60 year old grown adults that smoke are not mature?

     

     

    The use of marijuana does not effect ones maturity. Nothing of the sort. I’m amazed someone sees it as this, yet not surprised at the same time as maturity seems to be used when someone is against something yet has no solid proof of why it is bad.

    I used to many years ago, Fiance tried it once right after we got together, hated it and never did it again. We’ve got friends who are always smoking (won’t or can’t go a day without it) , but we haven’t done it in probably 5 years.

    @atlbride2013:  Good point. Of all the people we know that do smoke, we only know one that is a stereotypical “stoned raver type dude”. We choose not to associate with him much…. and I agree with

    @Meglin:  I can agree with you so much on that topic, boy can I! I hate when people use their “illness” as an excuse (when obviously they can do it… OK hate is a strong word but it disappoints me and I look at them as being lazy in some way), and even more so I hate when doctors over diagnose people just to give them medications and get them out the door. 

    I’ve been diagnosed OCD, ADD, Bipolar 2, general anxiety disorder, borderline personality and even schizophrenia, but the doctors never cared to learn my issues. After years of being screwed around with medications finally the doctor and myself have figured out I only have one of those, general anxiety disorder. The other issues were caused by seizures, so them labeling me did worse than good not even suggesting my issues could stem from a serious medical condition.

    My neice was put on anti depressants at 5 years old. I flipped out. She went through a lot as a child and was acting out, but who wouldn’t when they went from foster home to foster home and her mother gave her alcohol to drink to get “drunk” so “she would sleep better” (thankfully she’s now with my brother and her mom is no where in sight). I freaked when I learned they put her on medication.

     

    I am 100% for therapy and perhaps your brother should seek therapy, but choosing marijuana over any of the medications they give you with a psychiatrist (so long as it works) I think should be considered. It’s less harmful and works much better for many people. But yes, I agree doctors are too hasty to give out a handful of pills for every little thing.

     

    As a teenager I always had anxiety. Coupled with that I kept having episodes where I would black out, where I would be detached from everything and couldn’t understand anything. Everything seemed confusing and out of place. I couldn’t talk during these episodes.

     

    My mom took me to the doctor and therapist and the therapist kept throwing names at me and the psychiatrist continued to stack medication on top of others. I was 15 and up to 32 pills a day, all psych meds or meds that counteracted the side effects of the psych meds. They gave me a med that made my blood pressure high, instead of taking me off the meds they put me on blood pressure meds at 15 years old. All the medications did was make me tired, make me want to hurt myself, make me depressed, make me psychotic and they made my blackout episodes worse.

     

    No doctor considered a physical illness to get to the root so for 12 years I was in and out of their offices on and off all kinds of meds that really screwed up my life. In the midst of all of this I found marijuana and found that it decreased my blackouts, found that it helped my anxiety and helped my stress, and my stress made my blackouts worse. I also found it gave me energy. And only recently have the doctors considered those blackouts being seizure related.

     

    So I can see where you are coming from, but at the same time I can see where your brother is coming from. If it’s helping him he doesn’t want to give it up. And when you go to the doctors, more often than not if you’re in an illegal state they wont treat you while you are smoking. Heck, I couldn’t get them to treat me for a grand mal seizure until I stopped smoking marijuana when everyone knows marijuana is an anti convulsant.

    I’ve never smoked anything. Fiance has really bad asthma, so he doesn’t smoke anything. He says he tried it a couple of times when he was a teenager…TBH, none of my close friends or their FIs or SOs smoke anything…I come from a big circle of non-smokers. FI’s mother smokes cigarettes and her husband (FI’s stepfather) smokes weed and cigs…both of us are just so turned off by the stench and the smoke and the whole idea of smoking. FWIW, neither of us drink much. If I have a glass of wine a month, that’s a lot. Fiance may order a beer with dinner, but he never finishes it. I admit-I’m judgey when I meet and like someone (whether it’s a co-worker or acquinatance) and I find out they smoke..I always feel like oh, I like you less now. I associate smoking with hippies/Lil’ Wayne wannabees/people that can’t handle life…not my cup of tea. I think it’s immature, trashy, and juvenile. You can’t compare sipping a glass of brut rose with rolling a blunt…not the same thing at all.

    @kris325:  attack me much? I just feel that mature adults dont make poor decisions like doing illegal things….like smoke marajuana. I am not saying that you are immature if you smoke pot, I just am saying the norm is that a mature adult with responsibilities, etc doesnt do illegal things. If you smoke pot for medical reasons I feel this is different. Its not really smoking pot that bothers me, its breaking the law.
