Yes it is a matter of personal choice as each to there own eh. As for the original question on this thread ,if you dont like pot smokers then dont hang around one,that simple.As for legalization,all over the world where it has been legalized the crime rate dropped therefore freeing up police resources to go after real crooks like murderers and rapists and such and they actually had room in the prisons for them because they werent being filled up with pot users and growers.There was even more money then for police services and other things because it was now being taxed like booze and cigs.Sounds like a win-win thing to me,the crime rate drops,more resources available and more cash available.And if canada doesnt want to legalize then they should at least decriminalize then the first two advantages would still exist.

I live in bowthorpe, travelers robbing everyone, its becoming a real risk just to get any pot, got robbed a few times in the past they tryed to rob me once they wanted 50 pounds for a gram of coke, i woz on mescaline so my freind defended me, got proper beaten 3 of them batterd him to the floore they freatend to kill me ,if i didnt give them money all i had woz 20 so they took it, pot is nothing compared to coke, i remember when half these people smoked, you know when they wasnt thugs ,norwich has a big pill and coke market, pot is the least harmful i dont think its a good thing but it doesnt cause crime.

Same sorta thing here.Crack and crystal meth are the real problem,not pot.If they left the pot heads alone then they could spend more time on the real problem drugs.

agree. uncle sam (and our uncles to the north and south) are losing out on the biggest cash crop - ever. talk about taking money from the hands of organized crime and making that money available to solve other - more important social issues (and cancelling the national debt). Uncle sam already grows it (its call norinol - high grade usda grown - medical marijana - they don't buy it on the street) They should put it in vending machines and tax the hell out of it.....problem solved.

I like to think of myself as a person who can handle anyone...
Would I want/date a pot-smoker? Hell no...
I don't associate with that kind of environment...

A once in awhile pot smoker yes,...but, an all the time pot smoker...HELL NO. I was dating this girl that smoked for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We (I) would be trying to have a conversation with her and she would start laughing at nothing, right out of the blue....very, very annoying.

Ask any doper on here what they think they have accomplished in their lives, and listen to their turgid allusions, let them live in it. Let them fail. They suddenly all turn AA to justify their substance abuse. Their family and acquaintances know what they haven't done, the lethargic, non-motivated, unsuccessful, useless eaters we all know.

As a former smoker do you really want me to answer that?
Lets start with a paid off house.
I also own my parents place. With only 10Gs left to pay on that one.
I pay all of my folks bills and do all the work at their place as well as mine.
I am a foreman at work and oversee my crew as well as bid jobs.
My vehicles are paid off.
I also care for my elderly parents.

Now did you have any other idiotic questions.

That is what you get for making stupid generalizations about people.

I smoke pot for back pain and for pain only. I don't smoke it everyday or crave it when I don't have it. Pot is proven in effectively managing pain and for someone like me, who suffers chronic pain, it is a God send. I don't see it as a bad thing at all.
I am a good person who holds down a great job with great family and friends and I also attend church. I see pot as something that was put ont his earth for a reason and it has proven that to me.
Alcohol is man made and causes many deaths each year and yet people drink it without blinking an eyelid. This is because it is legal and therefore everyone thinks it is quite O.K which, as we all know, is totally wrong. I am not alcohol bashing as I also drink socially, just trying to get my point across.

Actually, I'm pretty sure the whole fermenting process is natural. We just help it along.

I tell ya, every time this thread pops up in my last 25, I get that "Smoke two joints" song stuck in my head.

You're a former smoker. Could you have accomplished all of that and still be a smoker?

I quit smoking pot 5 yrs ago and the only thing that I wasn't doing then was taking care of my parents. At that time they didn't need it.

EDIT -I had to get a CDL license for work. The company needed someone who could deliver the heavy equipment to the job site as well as run it.

Yes, whilst the fermentation process is natural, so is dope growing out of the ground. Pain killers are tablets concocted by a pharmacist in a lab and can also be highly addictive.
The stats showing marijuana related deaths and alcohol related deaths speak for themselves. Then there is ciggarettes and many other hard drugs............

In short yes, it's a big hassle if you don't smoke pot and you're trying to be with someone who does, and no, non-pot smokers cannot handle pot smokers. I've tried being with a doper, but it really does detract from the relationship, so I won't anymore. One person is always seeing things in a different perspective than the other one - men and women already have a hard time understanding each other sometimes, without throwing something like this into the mix! Pot smokers should just stick with each other as far as dating is concerned, and leave the non-pot smokers in peace!

toke their way to a vegetative state

Say what? From just marijuanna? Can they pick a green bean or a carrot, or must they be the vegetable of the month?


What benefit does society get from legalizing dope?
That's the only question that needs to be asked.


I will take out the word DOPE there and put in POT, seeing as that is what this thread is all about. ("Dope" can mean all the hard stuff too)
My answer to your question...
Society would benefit with:
less stress
more smiles
less rush
less fighting
and more tax revenue because the govt. WOULD tax it!!
(to name a few)

You shouldn't have to rely on a drug...any drug...to manage your stress.

No one would buy the Government stuff because it wouldn't be potent enough. People would still grow their own and it couldn't be controlled or taxed.

The market would be more competitive and violence would increase. Try to take a users drugs away from him and see how passive he is.

Since most POT is enhanced with something more potent than THC I think the word DOPE is accurate.

There are health risks that go with long term use and this would add to the cost of healthcare. Just as cigarettte smokers burden the healthcare system with cancers they probably would never have gotten had they not smoked.

Booze, smokes, pot....they're all bad for you.

Yup....agreed. But does that mean they should all be illegal? Or, referring back to the OP, that you couldn't or wouldn't date anyone with any unhealthy hobbies or habits?

***I'm really TRYING to stay off this thread and not get drawn back into the legalization debate, hence not responding to the specifics of MFH's fallacious arguments. Not the original topic...***

Hahahaha....I'm trying to do the same but others are now falling off the topic as well. Its a hard topic to avoid. Tried to find a forum on it but couldn't. Anyone know if their is a forum on legalization?

To your question:

No I wouldn't date anyone who does any drug. Nor would I date anyone who drinks regularly or smokes or is chronically obese. To me they are all unhealthy habits.

i don't think either of you have taken this thread too far away from it's original intent...i hope you keep going toe to toe with mfh here msusnicknel...the title seems simple enuff and it would certainly appear that both parties are handling each other quite well..
yes, there is a pot thread somewhere else in the forums, but for my two cents, this has to be one of the best debates i've ever heard not only in these forums, but in particular, this obviously well divided subject that a whole heck of a lot of people are interested in..
..let the moderators decide if it's off topic...keep duking it out until then i say

kudos' to both of you in your points

Well, there you have it. For you, finding someone who falls into your idea of "healthy" is important. I guess I could say the same, but my definition of "healthy" seems to differ from yours. Would I want to date someone who is constantly stoned? Probably not. Been there, done that. Someone who tokes up occasionally or even semi regularly (2 or 3 times a week) doesn't pose an issue for me. All things in moderation.


You shouldn't have to rely on a drug...any drug...to manage your stress

So would you not date someone who takes antidepressants or anti-anxiety medicine? What about someone who likes to "cut loose" or "relax" by going out and getting a little drunk on the weekends? Lots of people who smoke pot (or drink alcohol) are actually self medicating for depression, anxiety, and other such mental conditions. Personally, I'd be much more prone to trust consuming a plant I can grow in my back yard or basement than I would a chemically engineered drug pushed by pharmaceutical companies who stand to make millions by getting as many people on their drugs a spossible.

I think it boils down to priorities and amounts. Obviously, MFH couldn't "handle" a pot smoker. I, on the other hand could. That being siad, though, I probably wouldn't want to be with someone who constantly needs to be chemically impaired to deal with reality.
