yes we can handle the pot heads. actually depends on their views upon it. i used to smoke pot i have quit for over two years now, and i dont mind ppl around me that smoke it, it's pro choice.

and at one point, so was cocaine. I dont like it. but I dont knock others that use it. I just dont like excuses. handle your pot and business elsewhere. not around kids or people that dont like it. if you didnt know it, it's a bad first impression.

My brother and his friends smoked a lot of pot. They'd just sit there and smoke it and waste their lives. They are all highschool dropouts and none of them had a job. Eventually they all ended up doing harder drugs too and becoming violent bad people.

I know that not all people who smoke pot are like that...but...that has left a "very bad taste" in my mouth concerning pot. I would NOT date someone who smoked it and... I probably wouldn't be friends with them either. Nothing beyond casual acquaintance.

There are SO many "normal" folks that smoke pot..recreationally. Just as one would drink in a social setting. I've learned enough to broaden my mind and not lump pot smokers in the same group as say...IV drug users and such. Most folks think its "harmless" and those who do usually have their act together enough to know when to puff and when not to.

I myself, don't smoke and haven't since college really. But my reasons are:

A.) it someone incapacitates me and I have small kids to look after
B.) once I'm high...its "feed me...fu** me..and let me sleep. If I can't have all those things in that order, then I dont' want to bother.

And folks comparing it to cocaine and such..get a grip. I mean, people who smoke pot aren't desperate drug abusers. As for the illegal crap..slavery was legal once. Need I say more. The authorities don't know their ass from a hole in the ground half the time.

NO I would never allow it around my children...if they choose to do something like that it will be something they come to on their own. Its not good for you, but neither is smoking cigarettes and folks light up like the Fourth of July daily.

I think there's a whole lot of people on pof who are uptight and judgemental... i'm glad none of you wanna date someone who smokes---that means you're not bothering to email me and clog up my box. by not having to log onto pof to delete emails of losers, i've got more time to smoke it up. holier than thou asses.....

Addicton needs to be addressed, No matter if its Pot Coke Herion Booze Gambling even Cigarettes. Addiction make monsters of those addicted and is very hard to live with...Addicts have trouble dealing with many things...their feelings and emotions, their sexuality,their hygene, their spirituality,...Now it's not their fault it's the way the drugs booze and gambling affect their brains nerve endings...it;s the charictaristic of the drug and the alcohol to do that to a brain

I smoke cigarettes...and when I attempt to quit I feel my spirituality changing it really is amazing...I can last 2 or 3 weeks but i don't take that new found spiritual power use it properly...One needs to pray more regularly, ask God for the strenght to continue. Pray non stop for every thing in live

God can I live with a pot smoker...Amen

I can only handle a pot-smoker who doesn't send me outside to have a cigarette, while they enjoy their joint indoors! (maybe it DOES kill brain cells afterall! lol)

I ended a relationship or two because the person I was dating started smoking pot after we started dating. Maybe some can handle it, but I'm going to say that most wouldn't be interested and it would be an instant turn off.

@kathy411

I make my friends go out on the balcony to smoke there cigarettes cuz cigarette smoke sits in the air way longer, The smell is much stronger, has a lot more chemicals in it then pot, and if one person has a smoke someone else will usually want to have one too and if I havve a few friends over for the night they would probably smoke 5:1 cigarettes each:joints shared

Bongs if done right can leave almost no smell

30 mins with the balcony door open and air fresher on and you couldn't tell the difference I could wake up a day later and smell cigarettes.

So let me get this straight ... if you walk into a pot smoker's house two days after their last joint, you would have no idea that they had been smoking pot. Fair enough ... life isn't supposed to make much sense, anyway.

I don't know about your houses ventalation but theres no way 2 days later you'd smell it in my apartment. the only thing that would absorb it would be my carpets and I vacumm those fairly often, my couch and chair are leather so they don't absorb smell easily either.

If I turn on my air freshner, a fan and open the door I'd be willing to bet it would be gone in a matter of hours.

Why sure. A non-pothead is always welcome to date/love/whatever a pothead. It's just the pothead may not remember much about you, forgets important things, forgets important dates/functions/events or doesn't remember enough to recall them accurately, usually can't keep 'it' up, tends to loose most of their sex drive and find the pothead buddies much more fun to be with 24-hours a day 7-days a week, will wear the same t-shirt for days and maybe even the same underwear, may not recall the kids are in the back seat of the car/van when they stop just for a moment to chat with the friends. I'm sure I'm leaving alot out but after a long term marriage to a pothead I think I spead from wisdom.

Good Job, Raven.... It wasn't the 30 years of marijuana use that destroyed my liver, it was the 30 years of alcohol that did that. Never was in a fight getting high, but fought a many of fights being stupidly drunk. I'll take a doobie anyday, it might lower my sperm count, but it also makes me horny as hell............

velvet thorn no offense but it sounds like your exhusband was probably pretty dumb before. Don't try to shift the blame there are plenty of people that are self-motivated, organized and successful that smoke on a regular basis. Don't let one lazy slob effect your judgement of people that happen to smoke pot there are a lot of great people that you wont get the opportunity to meet because you made that call on something that is now viewed in our society as less harmful and as popular as smoking cigarettes and drinking.

I think you are completely stunned, just like your ex. Blame it on genetics, not marijuana, thanks.

lowers sperm count?

Since we use condoms anyway, how is that a problem?

Anyway, I dont smoke pot- would like to but my lungs react very badly to it- but I find that there is soo much misinformation on this forum. Pot does not make you permanently dumber and is not a sign of an irresponsible person. Just like having a drink of alcohol does not permanently affect your brain function. However, smoking pot does become stupid when it is abused, just like when other pleasures are abused - alcohol, cigars, sex, etc.

I don't like it. I dated one, wanted to punch him in the face sometimes.


Not sure why. I never have spoked pot, all my friends have, no one ever had a problem with me nor I have never had a problem with them. Even a handful of co-workers do it at work on breaks. Never has bothered me. Had an ex where she soked pot very regularily, about 8 times a day, never bothered me as i never judge people doing that.
I have handled it no problem. I have had people keep asking me why I don't smoke it. That gets annoying as I am not telling those not to.

There are so many sides of "Pot Smoking"
(1) Pot smoker's for recreational use
(2) Pot smoker's for medical reasons
(3) Pot smoker's rather than drinking
(4) Pot smoker's to focus on what one is doing
(5) Pot smoker's for sleep deprived
(6) Pot smoker's to act cool
There may be more reasons for smoking POT but these are a few I've seen.
I don't smoke the stuff but totally believe if you smoke Pot for medical reasons (Right ON)
Recreational use around a campfire (NO Problem)
For use rather than drinking... (You're lying to yourself) And maybe AA
For use to focus on what one is doing (For some, very few can handle it and concentrate at the same time.)
For sleep deprived (Right on for the right reasons. If other drugs are being used NO)
And for teenagers or even these days adults to fit in with the group (I did that, smoked cigarettes) Think again.
Long term use of mariquana does kill brain cells but as alcohol but but at least your happy, not mad at the world. I watch people fighting at party's with too much booze and smoking Pot at a party makes everyone so happy and giddy.

So if I met someone that smoked dope I'd take into account WHY?
