I've smoked pot off and on for over 30 years.My wife does too.We are not immature,lazy,forgetful or whatever stereotype image one may have of one who enjoys cannabis.If I were single I wouldn't date anyone who was intolerant of pot simply because it's an incompatibility issue.I'm not changing my lifestyle for anyone except myself and I don't expect anyone else to do the same.

It's funny to me how so many I've run across can be intolerant of pot,yet accept alcohol and cigarettes as if they were an American tradition like Apple Pie.Talk about a sheeple attitude.It's sanctioned by the government and put out by corporate mega conglomerates and advertised in the media ,so it must be OK right?

I can't stand to be around anyone who makes ANY mood altering substance the central focus of their life,be it pot,alcohol or some other drug.But responsible use of anything is not a bad thing and if I have to tolerate someone getting tipsy,stupid,loud and obnoxious by alcohol in public places,then in my opinion it should be legal and socially acceptable for me to smoke pot in the privacy of my own home where I'm not bothering anyone with my "vice" of choice.Forcing people to undergo random urinalysis and keeping them from their livelihoods because of pot use is the epitome of hypocracy in the US,while it's perfectly legal and acceptable for a person to drink as much alcohol as they want before going to work the next day.

Wake up folks,the war on drugs is a sham!

Well for me you either do it or you don't. Who cares if it's once a year or once a day. I personally have never smoked dope,or a cigarette for that matter. Never got into the bar scene either,which makes it really hard to find a date. I have friends that smoke it so it doesn't bother me,but I will never date someone that does it. The one thing that does bother me is the fact that I was born on 420 so all I hear is "Dude you are sooooo lucky,I celebrate your birthday all the time..ha ha ha " gets a little annoying lol.

ps also, being a nonsmoker,kissing a girl that is,is like licking a ashtray,yuck...

The question might well be asked: How come many pot-smokers can't handle non-pot-smokers? Why do they somehow feel threatened by people who don't need to be stoned to have a good time? The same goes for drunks.

The simple fact is that most pot smokers don't feel theartened. I think that you would likely find that most mature pot smokers imbibe socially or on ocassion somewhat like you indicate that you drink socially.

I can't remember if I posted on this thread before or not (must be those dead brain cells from my previous dope-smoking life!). Whatever. I'm a non-pot smoker now (I took a puff a couple of years ago - man! - either I got much weaker or the dope got much stronger! I didn't like it AT ALL!), but I smoked quite a bit in my youth. Actually, I always preferred hash to weed, but that's neither here nor there. I gave it up 15-20 years ago, because it started to give me uncomfortable rushes, rather than pleasant ones.

I wouldn't have a problem with a casual pot-smoker. I like a glass of wine. Not much difference, in my opinion. I could not care less about the "legal" issue. It's hypocritical and bizarre, also in my opinion.

A lot of my friends (even a couple of law-enforcement types - surpise!) are casual pot users. They're wonderful, productive members of society. I also know a few burn-outs. It's not the pot. It's them. They'd be useless, even if they didn't smoke.

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. Read some history. You can find anti-drug movies on youtube and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Many conservatives expect the government to act as a parental figure and enforce their morality as law. This is the opposite of what America stands for.

i myself am a non-pot smoker, i have tried dating women who use it, and it doesn't work out. i recall one situation in particular, i was out for drinks with a woman and things were going very well, we decided to go back to my place. well, i open my car door for her, go around to my side, get in (i note here she did not reach over and unlock my door, a minor dating courtesy here in the southern US.) as soon as i get my seatbelt on i smell something, i look over and she has a bowl in her hand, lit up, (in my brand new-havent gotten the new car smell out of it car!) i was so pissed i ended the date right then, got out, walked around opened the door, said good night and walked her to her car. not even the courtesy to ask? no thank you. now im not being high and mighty, i have smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for the past 15 years, and am very mindful not to smoke around my non-smoking friends and dates. even in my own car, i am consious of asking if they mind if there is even one non smoker in the car. so for me, i have never managed to make it work out etween burners, and non burners.

It's funny how people are close minded if they choose to live a good civil life and not use illegal substances... that out of the way I refuse to be around pot smokers, I don't care how much use it is, one joint is one joint too many. I find it sad the way it's been glamorized in our society, and how people my age play into that, I wonder if they worry about their futures, also it makes me wonder if you are above that law what other laws are you above? I don't hang with criminals either so thanks but no thanks. The arguement that it's " to each their own" is all fine and dandy but it's still againist the law, if you're caught with it you'll get into trouble, I don't want that drama in my life. I also seems to me if you need pot to have fun or relax you are a boring sad individual and again I don't want you in my life. Your only as a good as the company you keep, and I try to keep good company sorry Bongy Mcpothead I don't want you around me, and believe me it's your loss.

* let me note this while I think of it I also feel the same about excessive drinking, and smoking cigar(ettes) and any other drug but the forum's about pot so that's what I talked about*

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.

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.

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.

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...
