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)
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?

Because of the type of job I have and the constant background checks on me for security clearances, there is no way I could date or marry someone doing even recreational drugs.

Its a sad world when a pleasure from nature is taken away. While eveyone gets smashed on booze out in public getting louder and more vulgur by the glass we smokers of the peace pipe have to sneak in the toilets like a bloody criminal. We always made fun of it though laughing about getting caught like little school girls at a conference at the age of 46 stoned and getting caught by the straights oh god they would have the police around just to have something to talk about the next day at the church meeting :

I cant believe all this bickering..


WHO cares who smokes it or not.

If you dont like it.. dont date someone who does..

for me.. being in entertainment... there IS a certain difference between pot/drug users and people who dont. .. and yes alcohol is a drug..

I dont mind someone who does it rarely or occasionally... but to be around someone who is chronic... forget it.

I really don't care to be around it. I was around it a lot in college (never did it). In my experience, once someone got stoned, they just got boring.

Dope is for dummies!
Would you date a person who would take pills for fun?

How about if they shoot dope? Oh, but just once in a while.

Makes no sense!

Your either abuse drugs or you don't.

Like your either GAY or your not, there is no gray area if you ask me.

Thats why they call it dope

right. That's why bisexuality is just a mis-spelling of the act of hiring a prostitute.

Is it also impossible to responsibly enjoy alcohol, or is there no gray area between that and alcohol abuse?

I have a few friends who don't smoke pot,so when I am with them I do not smoke it,out of consideration for them.If they are at my house I will go outside,one of my best friends doesn't smoke,she can handle alittle bit of second hand but sometimes it makes her nauseous,I wouldn't want to contribute to that.
I will admit there is a constant faint aroma of it in my home,so I use incense and have an air purifier.

I think it's stinky.
I wouldn't mind it if it was a one-off situation. At a party or a rare occassion.
If it was something they did regularly then I couldn't handle it.

First I want to say thank you to Raven1 and michaeljustin for their posts in this thread. I run and own two business, my child is WELL taken care of, I work hard... and I smoke pot. I have been smoking marijuana for many years to cope with my pain. I suffer from Spondylitis, Spinal curvature, Scoliosis, chronic hip dislocation, tendonitis in both my shoulders and extreme hyperextension in my knees plus I have a lot of internal issues going on. I function much better once I’ve had a few puffs because I am in less pain, I am less anxious, and it lowers my daily stress levels. I do not become the "Lazy Stoner" all you naive people believe will occur, I am much more energetic( due to less pain - again ) and always on the go. I'm not sitting around starring at a picture of colours going -"wow man" - "like that was totally a-w-s-o-m-e" All you people who think pot is bad.... you need to grow up, if anything cigarettes and alcohol should be illegal and pot legal; the detrimental and very poisonous effects that alcohol and cigarettes have with zero benefit( unlike marijuana ) are disgusting.... but I'm a bad person for choosing a medicine that, unlike all the prescriptions that were destroying my organs before; relieves my physical ailments with minimal side effects? How can so many people be blind? you'll take a prescription with out question of the irreversible damage it will do to your insides just because your doctor said so? I'm all about alternative remedies and natural holistic healing; Pot is my natural, holistic medicine made by the earth, unaltered, pure, healing goodness. disagree? go do your research! then try to tell me that pot is worse than prescriptions, alcohol or cigarettes!!!
......................................................~:( * ):~........................................................
Now, in reguards to "can non-pot smokers handle pot smokers?" - just like smokers live with non smokers, the same rules apply. It all depends on the people and their views on the matter. PLUS the very minimal harmful effect caused by "smoking" the substance can significantly be reduced by using smoking tools such as a vaporizer

And to Velvet Thorn, That was your husband, not the pot, Don't blame something else.... it was your marriage to a man who obiously was a disrespectful, lazy bum who disreguarded your importance in his life, but HE chose to be that way, the pot didn't make him into a lazy dumbass, he already was one... he just so happened to smoke pot. and by the way.... Marijuana is an aphrodesiac!!! so that part about your sex life with him..... again... was just him.

Raven1, awsome post on page one....

Its not like they(drinkers OR pot smokers) were a crackhead throwing their lives away.
MAIN THING... cigs and alcohol are addictive and legal.
weed was NEVER proven to be physically addictive OR to kill brain cells.
BUT there isnt a single sheeple in a flock of hypocrites would DARE to research that little known fact for fear of being proven wrong. Bet most of them drink too.

christ.

I hate hypocrites.

cheers.

Heck NO! I wont date a cigarette smoker.....I certainly wouldn't date a pot smoker! Seriously I cannot handle the smell of smoke...and even though cigs are legal, they smell bad and make the person smell bad that is smoking them. Pot...no question...that smells even worse. There was a guy who used to light up at work. He would go to the men's bathroom and turn on the vent and smoke his pot there...and he wore shades all the time to hide his eyes. No one ever said much because he was the boss's son.

Been there, done that. Handle it, may not be a good way to put it, cope with it, probally is better. Went out with a gal that smoked pot, I dont. but it was her choice, plus i didnt know how much she did. Fortunately, that wasnt a factor in the relationship, she did thats her choice, I didnt, thats my choice. I didnt rag on her for smoking it, she didnt try to pressure me into smoking it.
So what did it affect? Mainly sex. I am very sorry, and maybe I am not typical, or maybe I am, but when I make love to a woman, I want it to be a woman, and not a glassy eyed zombie.
She didnt smoke enough to keep me from going out dating her, and eventually more as time passed, but never so much as that the rent was not paid or there were no groceries in the house, that was taken care of first. I think I am rather lucky though, she had her priorities in order. Unfortunately, I took second place to the pot. Given the choice of going to her friends to smoke up or going out for drinks with me, she picked the friends place and pot. There is where the problem is.
So yes, non pot smokers can accept and cope with someone smoking pot, but cant handle the pot comming first, before the relationship, food, shelter, and other necessities.

I have to agree with "undercover blonde".....I prefer not to be around it and will not date someone that uses it.

If it is a regular habit then the answer would be NO!! I don't even have friends like that (that I'm aware of). I couldn't stand watching someone I care about wasting away their brain cells like that. I agree with kuddlebum, msg #5, that if it was done once in awhile, then I would take it as a sign of good willpower and don't believe it would bother me very much. Depends on the relationship.

Aspirin is attributed to over 500 deaths a year. Marijuana-0. It is the most harmless "Drug" in the world. I DO, however, have a problem with women that abuse FOOD. Obesity KILLS people. Even mild obesity contributes to diabetes and other complications, not to mention how the person looks or feels.

Interesting.
But now, answer this. Was the pot prescribed by a licensed physcian.
nickname for this is 'wheelchair weed' due to it being readily prescribed to MS patients, also, this is much stronger than street weed. Mainly because it is government grown, as a pain killer and as such has a higher HTC (?) level. I'ld look up the actually chemical compound and initials, I'm just too lazy, but you get the idea.
If not, why didnt he prescribe it.
How many years of medical school did you personally attend that qualifies you to prescribe any medical treatment. And finally, there are many many many holistic medicines. Bee stings, for accute artheritis, willow bark in tea for inflamation, so with all the leagally available holistics, why do you choose an illeagle, contraband substance for 'valid medical reasons' MS patients smoke pot for not only pain, but it makes them less 'spastic' (think of a full body charlie horse) and it is leagally prescribed, and they have a medical certificate to purchase, carry and use it.

I have no problems putting these questions on the table here, as I lived with someone who smoked pot on a regular basis. I've known this person for over 6 years now, and she has been on numerous meds for pain, after a major car accident, but in all those years, with all the meds she has taken, she never once said she smoked pot for any other reason than to get stoned because she liked it. I would far from call her a lazy stoner though, seeing her standing on her feet 8 to 12 hours, in total agony, because she took a job as cashier rather than accept income assistance.
So please, unless you have a 'script, with all the other choices available, don't go crying I need to be stoned, poor little me, I need pot to live. Fact is, you want the pot, you want to get stoned, you want to be stoned, and the fact that when you are stoned you dont feel the pain as much is a side effect and a crutch, to justify being an addict in your own mind. I read your post, and I do truely admire alot about you, single woman, building and running 2 businesses, and I admire that you put pot after the business, and didnt lose them because of a habit, or addiction. I admire that yes, you are in pain and still get done what you need to do to take care of business. And I would even respect that if you chose to smoke pot recreationally, that it is your choice to make. I'ld even respect that you chose to smoke pot for the simple reason that you choose to do it. Just not the way you try to justify the use of pot to yourself. I dont need convincing, nobody here needs convincing, I am sure that not many (here, on pof) care if you smoke pot or not for whatever your reason or lack of, the only one that actually needs the convincing is you. I see so many people, so so much worse off than you, in so much pain that i cant even comprehend it. Who, even though the doctors have repeated suggested medical mj as a treatment, refused it. Opting for pills, shots, therapy, or to just do without anything and suffer through the pain day in and day out.
I smoke ciggarettes. I do it because I want to do it. I choose to smoke, for no other reason than that i want to. I want to quit too, just not as much as I want to smoke, yet. But the day I hear the words, Gary, I'm preggy, thats the second I become a non smoker, cold turkey. Which again, is my choice and mine to make.
Point is, if you dont have a script, and you are justifying the pot, and it would be to nobody but yourself that you are justifying it, It would seem that you dont like something about doing it that you need to feel justified. Correct? Hmm?
Personally it doesnt affect me at all if you do or do not do pot. So why even post this reply? Just for two reasons. First, to give you something to think about. I dont care if you are calling me every dirty name in the book, nor do I really care much if ppl reading this think i am a proper... *coffs* for saying this, in the manner I did. Secondly, and more importantly, I posted this so that others would see that pot is a choice, not a solution. Even when prescribed it is not a solution, only a treatment for an uncurrable condition. Rather like giving a person dying of scorosis of the liver whiskey 24/7 as a medical treatment. From experiance in helping a chemically addicted friend of mine, a close friend since childhood, I know the first step in dealing with an addiction is to admit it is an addiction. The first step to that is to remove the justification and show the addiction for what it is, a personal choice, to continue or show moxy and not continue. My friend liked the dope, he just didnt like who he was on the dope or who he had become because of it. I know that if he were typing this, he would be literally begging anyone that had not tried it not to, especially the kids. Thats his biggest heartbreak, kids addicted to drugs and or alcohol, as he was one, and lives the consequences every day. I only see them 2nd hand. And for that i am thankful.

Very nice unqualified stats there. 500 vs 0 eh? Ok, so what percentage of the world population smokes pot as compared to what percentage taking asperin?
Next, pot being the 'kiddie drug' what you start off on, (how many crack addicts started out on crack?) how many have OD'd on these drugs they have worked thier way up to from pot.
How many people have driven stoned, and how many children have died because of it? Or how many people in general. Pot is the same as alcohol in that it is a mind altering drug. It affects vision, judgement, and reflexes. So before saying asperin contributes to 500 deaths and pot to 0, maybe we should take a look at your definition of contributing. I will conceed that pot has caused 0 deaths world wide, it is the idiot behind the wheel on pot that causes the deaths. If an addict ODs on crack and dies, it is the crack that killed him, not the pot, the pot just pointed him down the path and opened the doors to make the crack easier to get. Do you for one minute suppose that any pot dealer cant tell you where to get crack, and tell the crack dealer that you are ok to sell it to?
This one i am responding to only because i am bored. The only comment i will make to the women addicted to food, is I would rather be with a woman who was 'cuddley' and know i was with her, and making love to her and she to me, than to be F****** some chick who is so wasted she dont know who she is with or who cant feel anything beyond the buzz. (go ahead, say pot intensifies sex. I need a laugh. Just like i laughed at the guy I was boarding with, who paid $100 for a 'date' even though he was stoned and couldnt get it up.)
