    Neither of us smoke weed now or ever have in the past.  Neither do any of our friends.  It’s not our scene.

    Used it when I had cancer.It was the only form of pain relief that worked and I didn’t care how ‘gross’ I looked to anyone. I got it via prescription, where it was grown/sold without the illegal crime aspect. lol.

    I wish people weren’t so judgemental over the use of it because you do not always know why someone is using it. I was on oxy for 6 months because I felt less judgement from others when I was taking a highly addictive prescription compared to something that came out of the ground.  Studies have proven that it isn’t addictive nor a gateway drug.

    When I was younger I smoked pretty regularly and I think my SO did too (we hadn’t met at the time). I live in one of the states that pot is legal in now, and depending on what my company’s policy ends up being regarding it I may smoke occasionally once the purchasing stuff gets worked out. In Washington it’s currently legal to possess pot but not buy it, and to me that’s too confusing to deal with.

    @rachelmichelle:  I look at where all my friends who did it in high school are today, and that pretty much solidifies my desire to stay as far away from it as humanly possible.

    this cracks me up. i was a huge stoner in college and i now have a master’s degree, make a great salary and live a very normal, healthy life. pot does not equal loser.

    @crayfish:  just wondering how you propose people’s smell should be policed? is there someone who sniffs everyone before they board the bus? i mean, people smell like all kinds of shit (pun intended!), seems a bit over zealous to start making rules about what you can smell like. i hate most perfumes, but yet…

    I really am shocked at the amount of people who believe smoking weed is disgusting, juvenile, and whatever else has been said.

    My Fiance and I smoke daily, both of us hold down regular, full time jobs, and are FAR from juvenile, immature stoners. We use it after work as a form of chilling out. It has no addictive properties (I have taken classes in drug addiction), and we don’t go crazy or experience withdrawal when we don’t use it.

    I get that everyone is entitled to their opinions, but those who judge others (one PP said if she finds out someone she likes smokes, she likes them LESS because of it), are the juvenile ones, IMO. As long as I’m not blowing my smoke in your face, and can respect that you don’t like it, it shouldn’t affect how you see me as a person!!!

    @Baroness_Meg:  my husband and I are the same…smoke daily to chill out after work.  We both went to college, have full time jobs, go to the gym a few times a week, mid-30’s – I just don’t see the big deal! People who have never tried tend to think it’s a looooot worse than it is 😉 JMO

    Neither of us smoke anything. I also think it’s something that is just…unnecessary. When the whole legalization talks go on I am really taken back. My thought is “Really, getting high is that far up on our country’s priority list? Not the other, much more serious issues that exist?” It blows my mind.

    I know a lot of people who have smoked marijuana. And almost all of them made stupid/innapropriate choices or prioritized getting high over something more important (like their CHILD). I don’t agree with drug use, I believe in finding other, healthier (physically/mentally) outlets to relax. I feel the same about alcohol abuse, or people that make getting a 6 pack a priority in life. I just don’t see the point.

    This is the reason why Americans have such an unhealthy view of recreational drinking/pot smoking. If you want to have a few drinks or a joint in your own home people view you as this huge omgfuckup who should be carted away. Because you must be incapable of caring for your children or holding a job. Plenty of cultures foster responsible drinking and smoking attitudes from the time a child is a young age and they seem to do just fine. In our society we’re so freaked out about it yet people with back to back DUIs just keep getting their license back. Disconnect?

    @hismm:  Legalizing pot isn’t an issue because ‘getting high is so high on the country’s priority list’. It’s about making something that SHOULD BE LEGAL, legal. It’s a naturally grown plant. No chemicals are used to grow it or make it. A plant that occurs naturally in nature should not be illegal, regardless of how people use it.

    The police force spends FAR too much time on this issue, chasing small time users and or dealers, when they SHOULD be trying to find the people who make and deal coke, METH, heroin, you know, drugs that actually have a negative effect on people and society!

    Neither of us smoke weed.  Neither of us have even tried it or have any desire to (even if it was legalized).

    ETA: But I AM for it being legalized completely.

    Hm…I think Fiance has done it a few times when he was younger (18-20ish). 

    I actually used to fairly regularly (either a few times a week or practically every day) when I was a senior in high school and my freshmen/sophmore year of college.  My interest sort of dwindled after my sophomore year though.  I just started not liking how I was feeling anymore I guess, even though I enjoyed it earlier. 

    I’ve had it again maybe a handful of times (5?) in the last 5 years. And barely any at that. 

    I’ve done worse so I don’t necessarily see a problem with people wanting to do it, depending on how they handle it/themselves and how much they do it.  Just with anything (food, alcohol, video games) some people abuse substances and others can act responsible with their use.

    I think funds are completely wasted on policing it so for that reason I think it should be legalized.

    Neither of us do. I wouldn’t get involved with someone who did; it’s an absolute dealbreaker.

    Lol, same here!  And I still smoke occasionally!  😀
     
    Ugh, the Judgey McJudgingtons on here are eyeroll-inducing.  Not everyone who smokes is an immature smelly loser who doesn’t care about getting fired, abandons their children, and goes crazy.  I think some of you could use a little toke yourselves.
