My boyfriend and I were eating breakfast this morning and there were two couples sitting in the booth behind us. One of the couples was my age and the other couple was substantially older. I assume the older couple was either the guy’s or girl’s parents. The girl mentioned that her and the guy were going to Denver next month for a few days for her birthday. The girl mentioned that they might try some pot while they were there. The older couple argued with her about it for a while. She argued back saying that it was legal and said that it would be fun to fit in and try something different. They argued for a bit and then they changed the subject. I just found the argument interesting. I don’t think I would’ve been so open.
Do you feel like the girl should’ve just kept her mouth shut about her plans? Do you feel like it’s something you have to do in Colorado to fit in?

No she shouldn’t have kept her mouth shut; it’s not like she was being offensive. But I don’t think trying pot is required to “fit in” either. That’s a very middle school mentality that I would hope most adults grow out of.

You definitely don’t have to do in Colorado to fit in…I grew up in Colorado and lived there most my life. No one cares whether you smoke or not. I myself also live in another legal state…and once again no one cares. Pot is def not taboo in my social circle or do my parents care. Weed is just weed.

considering the older couple’s reaction (they obviously didn’t like it or agree with her, but they were ok with changing the subject) i think she didn’t make a judgement error in telling them. You don’t have to censor yourself so that every conversation (even with your parents) is one that results in their approval ratings going up. Now, if they had exploded and stormed out or something crazy like that–sure, wtf girl: know your audience.
as for trying it to fit in.. that’s a stupid argument, but I assume she thought it was a better excuse than “I love getting high–it’ll be fun to try pot from an actual dispensary and see what its like.”

Stop listening to other peoples’ conversations at restaurants, Kacey.

Ok I am not trying to be mean but I am genuinely curious about this. Based on your previous threads you seem really preoccupied with what others are doing, are you just very observant?

ljm308 : I’m not the only person who does it. Where I live people will come up to you at restaurants and such and say we heard you discussing this church or school and ask your opinion about it. I actually wasn’t paying attention until the woman got pretty loud.

Sweetheart- go to Colorado and see if you need to smoke pot to fit in. By saying this I mean go out and experience the world instead of listening in on strangers conversations and then asking internet strangers their opinions. You will learn much more that way.
No, I don’t think it is weird she said anything. You do not know the dynamic to the older couple or why she said it. And no, people do not spark a bong in the middle of the freakin street and judge others when they don’t smoke, smoke, pass. That is done in the privacy of people’s homes so it isn’t about “fitting in”, it is about some one trying something new where it is legal.

Kacey23 : do you have to do it to fit in? What age are you, this all sounds very immature.

I feel like we have very different definitions of the word interesting.
I don’t find it at all interesting that people discuss all aspects of their lives with their loved ones, even when they don’t share the same opinions. It’s just basic discourse. Not unusual at all.

Kacey23 : no you sound immature, not her!

Kacey23 : I feel like the girl probably just should have known her audience. I wouldn’t hide if I smoked pot from my mom, but my dad might care so I wouldn’t tell him. When we went to Amsterdam last year that was the first thing everyone asked us lol (the answer was no because we were TTC).
