420 Friendly?Page 1 of 1    
Okay, what exactly does it mean when a girl says she is 420 friendly? Browsing through ads on Craigslist (yeah, bad idea I know) it seemed like every 13th girl or so said this. What on earth does it mean.

Thankyou for your time. 200 characters.

420 usually refers specifically too marijuana, as the above poster mentioned. The apocryphal tale behind this is that 4:20 in the afternoon is considered the best time of day to smoke marijuana because that is when many kids get home from school and their parents aren't home yet.

Saying "I'm 420 friendly" is synonymous with the statement "I'm familiar and comfortable with smoking pot." Most people will also take it to mean "I smoke weed."

Yup - seems psssst has it right!!

Agree. 420 refers to pot, so she either smokes it occasionally herself or doesn't mind when others do it, although she may not participate.

420 friendly?

She's either a pot head, or kosher with pot heads.


it seemed like every 13th girl

That was a pun? Funny regardless.

M for marijuana, is the thirteenth letter of the alphabet.

take two on the apocryphal tale.

420 was the California police radio code for a marijuana arrest in progress.



I find the Do You Take Drugs category one of the more amusing things on POF . I can't recall ever seeing a profile of anyone stupid enough to put yes as an answer. it would seem to me that its an unnecessary and actually rather forward question.

I mean think about it. do you really want to date somebody stupid enough to answer yes to something that can get them locked in a small steel box for a number of years, not to mention lose their job and get investigated by DYFUS and then post their picture and their locality next to it?

Hm, I thought it was for April 20th, when Bob Marley died.

Regardless, it signifies marijuana user to me.

4/20 is also Adolf Hitlers birthday and the reason the Columbine shooters chose that day.

I wasn't going to be the one to bring it up, but... some of the rumors about the number claim it was started by Neo-Nazis to commemorate the "holiday".

However, that could very well have been started later as propaganda.

You need to look around more often.

I've seen quite a few profiles answering Yes to that question.

One of the local people looks like someone I'd be interested in getting to know, but they have "Yes" next to that, and I have that I want nothing to do with the drug scene in my profile and the "Does not do drugs" filter marked.

Such is life.

OT, the 420 reference does generally refer to people who do pot/weed/herb, or whatever you want to call it. It's got many different sub meanings though.

I've never heard of the 420 term, but I haven't indulged in 13 years either. It makes one forget what they were saying and doing, and burns up brain cells. Now what was the question? Damnit, happened again.

Yeah I agree with oscarz, once real life kicks in, it's kinda hard to justify being a stoner. I don't mind pot smokers, but I can't afford to be one myself.

yo dude. easy there.


I said its not a good idea to ADVERTISE it.


as Mark Twain said, every man needs a vice or he is in danger of letting his virtue become his vice, which is the greatest vice of all. weed is mine.

its my only vice and as far as I can see, its probably the least harmful of all the vices outside of its absurd legal implications, which I've been living with so long that I've become inured to.

I grew up with a parent (principal of a school) that smoked weed. I don't see a thing wrong with those that do smoke.

Personally, I'de rather get in the car with someone high off a joint than a drink or two of whiskey.

If weed is less addicting than cigerretts and less dangerous than a bottle of whiskey, why is it illegal? Taxes?

Mistress Dolly, weed can affect your ability to drive just as much as alcohol can, it just affects it in a different way. As weed causes drowsiness, it can cause you to fall asleep at the wheel. It causes problems with depth perception which can lead you to stop too soon or not soon enough or turn wrong, which could cause an accident. Also, if a person goes into a full body stone (I've seen people do this even after there has been awhile after they smoked pot) they will pretty much lose the ability to drive. It can also cause attention problems (people who are high on pot are often easily distracted, which could take their focus from the task at hand). And let's not get started on what could happen if the drug is laced with something, which can be quite common. This comes from my own personal experience with the drug (mainly how I've seen other people react when high, but also from the few times I smoked pot when I was younger... which was maybe a total of 5 times).

I personally think that it should be illegal to drive while heavily influences by any substance, which includes alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, hash, heroin, whatever. Unfortunatly it is much easier to detect alcohol on someone's breath via the use of a breathalyzer than it is to detect the presence of drugs. Generally drugs need a blood or urine test. You can see symptoms of drug use (for example red eyes) but many visible signs of drug use can be caused by other things (red eyes could be caused by allergies... when I'm suffering from allergies many of my friends ask me if I'm high because of the way my eyes look). It would be very easy for a person to refuse a blood test, and hard to get a conviction for impared driving when a person refuses to take the test. With alcohol, there is generally the smell of alcohol. This could also happen with pot, but you could very well be the designated driver after a party where pot was consumed and smell of pot. Additionally, many other drugs do not give off an odor (like cocaine or IV drugs). With alcohol refusing a breathalizer is considered an admission of guilt. It would not be the same with a drug test as the drug can stay in your system for a period of time, while not affecting your ability to drive, and submitting to a drug test that would show you have consumed drugs at some point could have an impact on your job or your reputation. In this case you would not be guilty of impared driving, but refused to be tested for other reasons. The only reason to refuse a breathalyzer is if you think it's an infringment on your rights or if you are actually guilty.

As for the dangers and addictiveness of pot vs alcohol and cigarettes, there is a great deal of conflicting research on this. Pot can cause cancer when smoked, just as cigarettes can, however people don't generally smoke pot as much as they smoke cigarettes. Pot smokers generally smoke once or twice a day or less (usually less). Cigarette smokers often have several cigarettes a day. Obviously the more you smoke something the more likely it is that you will have cancer. Pot can result in brain damage, especially in young people. And as stated above, it can cause impairment, just as alcohol can.

The reason pot is illegal and alcohol isn't? It's entirely a cultural thing. 'White men' invented alcohol, but pot was mainly consumed by ethnic minorities (mainly Mexicans in the US). Similar to opium, consumed mainly by Asians, the criminalization of marijuana was used to repress the ethnic traditions of an ethnic minority. Additionally, Mexicans were often interacting with black people in the south and giving them pot, which caused a great deal of paranoia as well. If you ask most white people what they think of a drunk or high white person they'll often tell you that the person was just out to have a good time, that they're partying, whatever. However if you ask most white people what they think of a drunk non-white person, many will tell you that they're a user and abuser and a low life. (I personally think this is wrong, white and non-white people are just as capable of using drugs and alcohol for recreational purposes on occasion as they are to abuse the substance). It is a very unfortunate stereotype. Other drugs were made illegal because of negative effects. Heroin used to be perfectly legal and you used to be able to buy it and syringes in the Sears catalogue, however many people (usually women and lower class people) were using it and it was starting to have a negative effect. Women and the lower class were becoming 'lazy' due to heroin use (it pretty much knocks you out), thus making them incapable of producing goods (lower class people were generally producers). This loss of productivity led to a loss of profit for the rich business owners (and who was in power when most of this was happening? Yep, rich business owners, who will make laws that help other rich business owners). Additionally, heroin use caused severe birth defects and infant mortality.

Thank you, wpg :) :)

Still, I'd rather drive with someone high off a joint than high off whisky.

I think it's a "no-no" in most age groups, it's just more of an "in" thing with certain types of people.

I've been around users and abusers for years, and my personal choice at this time in my life is that I'd rather have nothing to do with those people and their choices. I'd much rather be alone.

That's just my own personal preference.

I've heard both sides of the arguments, and I have my own views on the issue also.

It seems rather difficult to find anybody without some type of vice, whether it be alcohol, pot, hardcore drugs, religion, smoking, or some other vice in today's society.

With all due respect pot is illegal because of the pharmeceutical, tobacco, and alcohol lobbies. If it were not for them the farce of "Reefer Madness" that made it illegal in the US far less than a century ago never would have happened.

I am not a big fan of pot but the Black Market is the most destructive force in society, not the products fragile and illogical sensibilities give them a monopoly on purveying.

"420" refers to the time students at a California high school congregated to smoke pot. With Columbine and other events it has come to mean more over time.
