I don't mind going "poof". Maybe I will break on through to the other side.

Well let's hope so.

It's funny, you posted in a thread about drug use but in your profile you say you do not use drugs. Many people have a cognitive dissonance when it comes to pot and it appears you are in that camp too. And hey, CD is one of your interests, fancy that! Good luck working that one out with your prospective dates. In my book that comes under the heading of 'not being honest'.

I'm sorry you feel that way.

You posted in this same forum. Does that mean you have an interest in drugs?

Puzzled.

That "drug use" question is ridiculous. Many, many people smoke, most are not going to announce it to the public on a dating site. I guess in a technical sense it is dishonest, but not in spirit. It is an intrusive question that most people choose to ignore because too many others will make a mountain out of a molehill.
Also, I think most people mentally separate pot from other drugs, and rightfully so. Who cares about pot? I'm concerned about meth, X, heroin, pills - you know, the real problem drugs.

" Hello,
I'm one of those aging stoners. I am 73 and I have been smoking since 1970 and I still do it every day.
Tony "







I find this hard to believe because if it were true you surely would either be dead, crazy or homeless by now since pot is such a destructive drug - MUCH worse than the socially acceptable drug, alcohol.

Can someone watch this scene and explain how Tom Berenger's character believes, apparently, that smoking pot is escaping reality but getting drunk ISN'T ?????


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTyJ3QruoaM

He might as well pick up a carton of ice cream and say " don't you guys know this will make you fat ? " ...while eating a big piece of cake !
I just don't understand the logic behind getting drunk is ok but getting high is ....immoral ????

Btw, one doesn't necessarily have to partake, Chromis, to see a side of an argument.

nice scar...

Where does morality come into this?

above: "Btw, one doesn't necessarily have to partake, Chromis, to see a side of an argument."

More properly directed toward 73 or Nth maybe? I only participated here (not a partaker) because I saw the opportunity to make a quick joke and then read 73's profile and noticed what I consider an inconsistency.

To me, both etoh and thc take one away from everyday reality with a goal in mind: for some, to make that everyday reality more palatable.

vvvvvvvvvvv

does not compute: life not logical (said in my best HAL voice)

Chromis said " party on " , which I took to mean he assumed I smoke pot simply based on my sarcasm.

I like the part where he says " I am reality " and then takes a swig right after - good ol' Oliver Stone.

No, actually, by "party on" I meant ... party on. Continue to be enlightened and see the shades of gray. You know ... hippie vernacular stuff. Put a flower in that gun barrel.

You didn't strike me as a stoner.

Buttchick:

this thread is allowing it for some reason.... no fiddling necessary so far.

(btw, did I tell you yet that I love you for tipping me off? this code holier than swiss) It's always been a pain in the aspen to try to remember where the thread is I wanted to comment in again)

vvvvvvvvvvvvv

I already know the flight times and cost from my area to yours but she got to you first. Santa hates me (I think I am getting coal again for xmas)

Groovy!

Ok, pass it, but don't Bogart it.

When I was in college I was high every. single. day. But so what? I was acing everything. Law school brought all that to an abrupt halt and getting stoned has been a rare occasion ever since. But the woman I'm dating now ... she'll get high. So we're planning an extra special date somewhere down the road.

He is one top button away from being an anachronism (not to mention that is a LEAF he's holding, not a flower).

The cholo hat is a nice touch. I think I am in love.

ETA: it's not a cholo hat after all but Urban dict has THIS to say about the backwards cap look:

"BACKWARDS HATS Wearing your baseball hat backwards means your (sic) ready to perform oral sex"

I did not get that memo.

I started seeing a woman last year and when I told her I used to partake she reacted as if I'd told her I used to be a woman . Sad that people still in this day and age hold such prejudices/stereotypes towards pot.



"The cholo hat is a nice touch"


Actually, it's a baseball cap on backwards and I'm holding a plastic spoon. Sorry.







""BACKWARDS HATS Wearing your baseball hat backwards means your (sic) ready to perform oral sex"


HAHA - as long as I'm AWAKE I'm ready !

oh heck, I give up. And I just got new granny glasses too. Might as well be pushing up daisies at this point.

Never did like pot, made me too horny and gobbly. Alcohol suited me better (until it didn't.)

Ooooohhhh Chuck! So you WERE a stoner. Haha! Cool.

This issue is something I address very early on. I'll let it be known that back in the day, I tried almost everything. Acid, mescaline, "uppers and downers, either way ... blood flows". Good Lord we even did PCP once (and just once - nasty stuff). How she handles the way I thought at one time predicts pretty well how she'll handle the way I think now.

Only heroin was off limits. But I made my son promise that when I'm on my death bed, and only then, he'll score some for me. I'm gonna see heaven even before I get there.

Well, if by " stoner " you mean the pot version of " alcoholic " aka " chronic " , then not exactly .
I used in occasional social situations as well as for creative purposes ( songwriting - used to be very effective and FUN )

Eventually, it just no longer felt as good so I figured why bother ? Kind of like now when I try to watch certain Christmas movies and I realize I'm bored so why keep watching it ? Tradition ?

Yes , I also prefer open minded people .




" Only heroin was off limits. But I made my son promise that when I'm on my death bed, and only then, he'll score some for me. I'm gonna see heaven even before I get there."




I often joke that if I was told I only had 6 months to live I might try it. That line from Trainspotting haunts me : " take your best orgasm, multiply it by 1000 and you're still not even close "

Real hippie's are old and cool...they smell like 60 year old farts, and are usually toothless.
Most of them live in California...many down in Santa Monica, curled up in sleeping bags on the beach and getting high.
Everyday, people stop by and bring them food, drink and weed...and listen to their stories...you should go !!!
