    Fiance smokes more than I do but for both of us its seldom and usually on the weekends.  I’d say I smoke about as often as I drink which is like maybe 3 times a year.  I would say Fiance smokes probably once maybe twice a month or every other month.  Usually when he’s out with friends drinking, and its always at someones house, never while they are going to bars.

    Never smoked that garbage, never will.  I’m a criminal lawyer, come and do a stint in children’s court and see what this crap does to kids and try and continue supporting it.  I can’t count how many kids have wound up pot smoking dropouts spending their days causing havoc, getting high, assaulting their parents, shoplifting, you name it.  It’s a garbage drug and nothing good comes of it.  It is a crime to possess cannabis in Australia where I live and work and that will not change, save for medicinal cannabis which may be decriminalised at some point.

    I find it highly hypocritical for anyone who drinks alcohol to have an issue with marijuana. Alcohol is considerably more dangerous that the herb is but for whatever reason, those who smoke are automatically the stoner dirtbags that can’t hold a job and wreak havoc on society. So not true. I used to smoke pretty regularly but haven’t in a while and that’s only because I was spending too much money on the stuff (well, and getting fat off doritos! lol). Guess what? I’m an educated professional who goes to work every day and makes and honest living. I pay my taxes, I volunteer, I donate to charity. I am as much of a contributing member of society as anyone else but according to the holier than thou, I’m also a freeloading stoner who should be behind bars. Mmmkay.

    I’m thrilled to live in a state that has legalized medical marijuana. We still have a long way to go before recreational is legalized but I think we’re making progress. I, for one, will be thrilled when it happens.

    We both don’t smoke weed, nor have we ever tried it. Not interested. Personally I hate the smell of weed!

    Also, just wanted to add that neither of us drink much either, honestly a couple of times a year. Compared to most of my friends who binge drink on a weekly basis… and they’re all in their mid-to-late 20s.

    My boyfriend and I are veteran smokers and have both done it for years. Myself, if I wasn’t at work or with family, I was high. It didn’t effect my ability to function as a productive member of society. I quit when I moved states and didn’t have a steady supply. No biggie. I wouldn’t mind doing it once in a while but my boyfriend is now sober including weed. So I am too.

    My Fiance used to smoke every weekend (before we were together), but he used it as an escape behaviour to deal with stress in his life. I do put it on the same level as alcohol in this instance because your problems still exist once you “come down” from your high. 

    I have never smoked, the smell makes me nauseated. I also highly dislike the way people act when they’re high (and I’ve been around many people who are), and have no desire to be like that.

    I also don’t drink.

    I smoke often for my PTSD. It helps immensely with the flashbacks and nightmares. My husband always says he’d rather have a pothead wife than a wife who is a drunk. I still live a full and active life despite being a pothead. My husband would be less relaxed about me smoking if I just lay around all day getting high. He smokes a few times a year. 

    Strangely, I hate the stink of weed in my clothes and in our apartment. I smoke outside on our balcony or lean my head out of the window if the weather is bad. Nobody who visits our home can tell that a pot smoker lives here. I also do not smoke around my nieces or any other child who comes to see us. I hate to see people smoking dope at playgrounds where kids are playing. 

    I find that Canadians are generally more relaxed about pot than many Americans. This has simply been my experience and not a generalization.

    ilovebacon:  Exactly!  Such BS.  Coming from a family of many, many alcoholics, I have seen firsthand how alcohol can ruin lives, yet smoking marijuana is considered lazy/deadbeat.  Psshhh.  At least laws are finally changing!

    Fiance and I smoked daily when we met each other 4 years ago and both cut down significantly when we went back to school 3 years ago. I quit when I got pregnant and he smokes infrequently now partly due to my not smoking and also his school and work getting more intensive.

    I personally think that my pot smoking days are mostly over.  Even though I am a rather productive person whether smoking or not, I’ve been really enjoying being more focused and even more productive since quitting. Other than the baby brain, that is. lol. I don’t mind if Fiance keeps smoking occasionally, as he is super sharp, productive (more than me) and really ambitious and like, never lazy.  

    Having said that, I definitely know people for whom their smoking habits are definitely a hindrance to their ambition and productivity and could stand to smoke less. Everyone is different. I think it’s all about being honest with yourself about the impact of smoking and your limits.

    Neither of us ever have or ever will. Just not something I’m interested in, and also don’t like the thought of inhaling any smoke. I also don’t drink much. I have one friend who uses VERY regularly (multiple times a day, basically like a chain smoker). He’s been in trouble with the law many time, has serious family issues, hasn’t had a job in 3 years, has no education, living at home, can’t drive, no romantic relationships of any kind since 16,  or even friendships. On top of it all, i think he is mentally ill. Granted, he had family issues before smoking, so im not going to say that the smoking caused the life issues or vice versa, but smoking has definitely only been a hindrance to his life. I know this isn’t the case for all smokers but I cant help but think his life would be different if he hadn’t become literally addicted to weed. Just kinda sad.

    Neither of us do but I’m curious as to why you think it’s so bad. It’s better than alcohol and cigarettes, and actually has tons of health benefits.

    The only time I think it’s not good is if someone overuses it in one sitting, or if it’s constant and they’re a stereotypical stoner. But that’s like anything. Over-eating/over-exercising is also extremely bad for you.

    I’m all for legalizing it.

    Actually I’ve heard that (don’t quote me and I’d look into this) marijuana has been proven to promote brain cell growth in seniors.

    I’m a goodie-goodie and don’t like to do anything illegal, especially where I work, but if it was legal I’d do it.
