can non-pot smokers handle pot smokers?Page 17 of 77    (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43)

This is all about cultural warfare. It's ok for desperate housewives to abuse their valium prescriptions because they're upper middle-class, but those damn beatniks and black folk with their mary-jane are ruining this country.


Cultural warfare,you said it.That's exactly it.That's the reason the laws against MJ were enacted to begin with.At first to make sure Willaim Randolf Hearst's multi million dollar investment wasn't compromised with competition from hemp and to keep Mexicans out of the country during the Depression.

Anti pot laws and anti pot sentiment belongs back in the days of the Jim Crow south and other antiquated ways of thinking.

If they made it legal, which I believe they should, for many reasons, I wouldn't have any issue with it, as long as the weed didn't take over the person's life. It's neither bad or good.. just something we all have to deal with and make decisions about.

It sure would help the tax payers pay bills. Prisons would be fairly empty and our economy would change some. But all in all it would be great. Sell the stuff like cigarettes and fund things that need money... BESIDES the military!! Like public services, public schooling and college funding, and medical services.

This is something that doesn't bother me at all, I find sometimes people are more fun or relaxed when they do this and that can be a great thing. I haven't met too many crazy pot smokers.

I also seems to me if you need pot to have fun or relax you are a boring sad individual

Timothy Leary once wrote:
Think for yourself
Question authority

Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself.

Think for yourself.
Question authority.

Sorta says something about cannabis
Everything thats here on this planet naturally, is meant to be here.

Smoking weed is only one aspect of life. I dont' think it should overpower the rest.

A person would NOT be out of line to say "when your around me, can you not smoke weed".

I think it would be silly to miss out on an amazing person, b/c of a small aspect of life.

sorry, maybe it is a southeastern us thing, but when i say "pot smoker" i mean "burnout" i have never met a regular smoker who could string more than three words together into a cohesive sentence.

Gee, does this mean you think President GW Bush is a pot smoker?I'm a regular pot smoker,you want to count the words I've written on this site alone?Are they cohesive enough for you?

I don't smoke anything, but I would rather date someone who smoked pot occasionally than cigarettes. Second hand smoke of any type bothers my allergies and I don't enjoy the smell of it.

I also know people who were heavy users of it and are quite successful in school. I know older people with masters degrees who use it for medicinal purposes.

But if you can accept the fact that some 70 year old men can take medication for ED, then why not accept the fact that some people like to smoke a dried up plant leaf?

Shakespeare smoked marijuana. So did Carl Sagan. So did Jack Kerouac and Ernest Hemingway. I think they strung a few words together. Let's not even get into the writers who were on heroin. Or alcohol.

I think Bush was more into binge drinking and cocaine. Now those are some all-american vices!

Anyway, back to the subject at hand. Smokers and non-smokers together. In my experience one person pulls the other person into it. I started smoking because my first live in girlfriend did. When we split, I quit. It's hard to just sit and watch when you live together.

i don't really think anyone has a right to judge anyones opinion about this topic. if you want to smoke pot, go ahead..it's a choice. the same as it is a choice for someone to not want to date a pot smoker...it is an individuals right to choose what they do or don't want in their lives...i don't smoke pot but i know plenty of people who do...do i think it is evil? absolutly not...but if someone doesn't want to smoke pot it doesn't make them "ignorant" or " narrow minded". it is a choice that they made, just like someone who wants to smoke...why is it that only pot smokers are open minded and intelligent?? i don't smoke pot and don't really consider myself a dummy...it just isn't my thing...people who judge that decision are not different then those who consider pot smokers immature burnouts...do we see how all this is is a big vicious circle??...lol...

Burn One Down
by Ben Harper

Let us burn one, from end to end.
And pass is over to me my friend.
Burn it long, but burn it slow,
to light me up before I go.

If you dont like my fire, then dont come around.
Cause I'm gonna burn one down.
Yes I'm gonna burn one down

My choice is what i chose to do;
and if I'm causin no harm,
it shouldn't bother you.
Your choice is who you chose to be;
and if your causin to harm, then your alright with me.

If you dont like my fire, then dont come around, cause I'm gona burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one, down.

Herb the gift, from the Earth,
and what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before u knock it, try it first.
and you'll see it's a blessing and it's not a curse.
If you dont like my fire, then dont come around,
cause i'm gonna burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one.

oh yeah

I can tolerate all sorts of idiots (operative words being "tolerate" and "idiots").
I wouldn't waste my time dating one though, I'll just wait for that special crack head/ heroin addict to come along.

Brain cells are like a herd of buffalo... marijuana only kills off the slowest and weakest brain cells, thus strengthening the health of the herd. That's why the more pot you smoke, the smarter you get. Alcohol, on the other hand, simply pickles your brain cells, making them sloppy and stupid...

Have you no sense of subtlety? Some people can't string three words together, and others wouldn't know a joke if it hit them over the head, with or without pot.

I dunno, weed's not so bad. There are a ton of perscription drugs that are far worse. My moms friend is addicted to asprine. I can guarentee you that taking asprine all the time is far worse for ones health than pot. Valium, zoloft, ritalin, cough syrup. These things are all bad for your overall health but nobody cares about these things because they're legal.

I dont think any drugs should be illegal personally. If heroine was legal would you do it? The fact that a substance is illegal isn't what really prevents people from doing drugs. If someone wants to take meth and ruin their life I can advise them not to do it but who am I to say they can't do it?

Pro choice amigo. To each their own. I know people who have family and friends, who are very close to them in their lives, who smoke but they refuse to have it involved as a dirrect part of their lives. They respect the fact that the others are adults who have the right to be as destructive to themselves but not for them. Some won't accept it based on the simple fact that it is illegal, duhhhh!
And then there are those who see it as no big deal. They don't smoke it but they don't judge anyone who does.
I say a long as it's not destructive to your life friendship or relationship. If it makes you happy be happy.
But I can tell you from experience: Nothing can make you higher then the love of someone special. So don't ever let that go for something like smoking pot.
peace out

I don't care if a guy i'm dating smokes pot. i don't, but I can tolerate it. I'm not about to tell my bf that he's "not allowed" to smoke up. then i would feel like his mother.

I think it depends on how central to the smoker's life the weed is. I personally wouldn't want to be with someone who needed a lot of pot (or alcohol) to get by. I don't mind people who smoke or drink socially, and I have dated more than one. People who let weed smoking get in the way of life though... not for me.
