    Yay for legalization! 🙂 Just thought I’d throw that in there. Sorry haters, but you’ll have to find something else to harp on as soon enough pot will be legal across all states in the US.

    We are self employeed so worrying about getting fired is not an issue, thank goodness. We smoke whenever the mood strikes.

    Jeez. if you smoke it, don’t get all butthurt because not everyone respects pot smokers. Not everyone respects people who use drugs. Not everyone respects teen mothers. not everyone respects cigarette smokers. not everyone respects high-salaried CEOs. GET OVER IT. Seriously, if it’s illegal in your state and you smoke and then get all pissy because people don’t like that you’re breaking the law, you’re being absurd. Until the law changes, you’re a law breaker. Whatever, not my problem, I don’t care either way, but the self-righteousness is pathetic.

    cautiously3optimistic:  Some people don’t consider it bad to be a lawbreaker, so your standard is still subjective. There are plenty of unjust, unethical laws that should be thrown out. I used to smoke pot all the time and there were bad things about it: its tied to horrible drug trade; distracts you from reality. But the ridiculous (classist, racist) criminalization of weed was never as issue for me.

    Syzygy88:  Okay, that’s valid. If you (proverbial you) don’t think it’s bad to be a lawbreaker, then fine, but it’s still silly to be surprised or indignant when not everyone agrees with you. Not being a fan of breaking the law (or people who break the law) is hardly outlandish. Granted some laws are more important to society than others, but you can’t pick and choose which ones you’re going to follow and then freak out and call everyone else too judgemental for not being onboard.

    Nope. I used to on occasion (in my 20’s) but not anymore, my SO has never tried any drugs.

    There are no poll options for “used to be a huge stoner many years ago, but not any more”…

    I can’t wait for legalisation. I love pot. So much nicer than alcohol.

    I come from a country where over 75% of my age group have smoked it at least once, so hopefully it’s a matter of time before we just legalise. It’s a ridiculous waste of police time to enforce a law which the majority of under 40 year olds have broken at least once, IMO.

    … and as to the person who said that someone who breaks that law would definitely break other laws…

    We police by consent. The law is made by consent. Go back a hundred years and most people were breaking the censorship laws. That didn’t mean that they were breaking lots of other laws, or that they hated the law in general. That meant that censorship was a bad law which did not meet the needs of the majority of the population.

    The same goes for pot smoking.

    cautiously3optimistic:  Whether someone is breaking the law or not, if you’re taking a stance on something controversial on the internet you (proverbial you) should be prepared for people to disagree/not respect your view.  I honestly think this issue doesn’t have much to do with breaking the law (people that drive over the speed limit are technically lawbreakers).  People are simply judgemental, even moreso on the internet.

    As a medical professional, I would 100% rather someone put a blunt (ok, better yet: a vape) to their lips over a beer bottle.

    Also… you’d be surprised how many in the medical fields smoke.

    The drug war is the new race war.

    Weren’t you the one just talking about self-righteousness?

     

    Also; good for you.  Ask your doctor and find out!  There are also cops who smoke, construction workers, actuaries, life insurance reps, bartenders and servers, auto technicians, real estate agents, CEOs (especially growing amongst female CEOs), etc etc that smoke.

    Anyway, personally, I’d be much more concerned with their bedside manner and how empathetic they are to their patients’ needs than what they do in the privacy of their home, after-hours.

    I never have my my Fiance did. He started doing it really young and when stressed because of work he was doing it almost every day. I finally had enough and he stopped in April. He hasn’t done it since and knows I won’t tolerate it anymore. I understand some people enjoy it and it’s very useful for certain medical conditions but I’m not a fan of being around people who are high.

    We pick it up and drop it all the time. He used to be a big pothead in high school from what he tells me, but who wasnt a little “bad” in those years?

    Weed has been the only thing that has been able to stop my seizure and migraine episodes when they get bad…..if only I could get it medicinally, because none of the Rxs I have been on worked worth a shit.

    I’ve been searching for a new job in my major field, so I stopped since this winter(not counting the last Stanley Cup game–KINGS BITCH! lol) so I can pass a drug test.
