Yes you can, I lived with a guy for 3 years who was a pot smoker, and I am not. He would respect me and do his smoking before I got home from work. Every once and awhile he would smoke in front of me but would ask if he could. If you are comfortable with them smoking is also the question. I didn't care as long as there wasn't anything more "harsh"

that depends on the "pot" and The "smoker". I am a child of the late 60's 70's been there done that. did it some more group.

If you were my kid ? I'd let you smoke it. I'd make you feel stupid and tell you now you will stay stupid, prove me wrong ... I am a prime example.. all kids think their folks are dumb. hehehe

Mind altering drugs are fun. be it beer, pot or whatever it is. It's also cover for ... I am not having Fun .. just being ME!! maybe the Q: should be WHY NOT ? not IS Pot OK ?
This is something I am still asking myself. I sip vino, some times , I gulp water.
I quit pot. because I veged out. Not good. *lol* peace

I wouldn't be really thrilled with the idea, but if I like somebody well enough then it doesn't matter all that much.

OK you would rather deal with someone who has to have a drink every night to unwind. Go out two, three or more times a week and come home stumbling a$$ drunk slurring their words and throwing up all over the place. Or one of those mean drunks who feel that they have to prove their superiority by abusing his spouse and kids. All the while blowing his paycheck in the bars and chasing skirts.
I don't drink or do drugs and would much rather be around someone who gets stoned a couple times a week then put up with a drunk.



Woo -hoo being drunk is cool.
gimme a break

Moderation would be a key criteria. Anything to excess can be harmful. If self-medicating is a mandatory part of their "life" a stoner (or a boozer, for that matter) may want to look at what they are really trying to avoid.

Medicinal has a legitimate place, and the occaissional smoker may live more than the 'illussion of functionality', but if their life, their friends, their world revolves around 420 are they living or existing?

When I die I may wish that I hiked further, loved better or contributed more to the community, but I will not wish that I got stoned more. They call it wasted for a reason. I am trying not to preach, but I spent 25 years stupifying myself with "Buddish Columbia's" finest, so please don't suggest that I do not have knowledfe about the subject.

What do I do now that I dont burn doobies? I get things done...

Actually no, I won't deal with either. You can't justify smoking pot because your not getting ripped on bourbon and screwing the cat. It's nasty, it's a crutch, and I know more than a couple of really good folks who got their lives ruined by it. Either they just got too lazy to bother living, or they got stupid and got caught. And you can;t tell me if you are a potsmoker, you don't know a couple too.

I dunno. Could an axe murderer handle living with a non-axe murderer? I know I would rather deal with someone who is stoned than some of the psycho alcoholics I have dated. The main reason that it is still illegal is because of propaganda films like "Reefer Madness" which were designed to dupe the public into financing a drug war against a problem that was really non-existant in the 20s & 30s with their tax dollars. I think I will straddle the fence on this one. I really don't care one way or the other.

i kinda agree with BOOKMAN09 as i used to be a heavy smoker from the age of 13...and just quit about a year ago now,smoking for 5 years has had a huge affect on me for example...
If ever i am around friends or whoever that may be smoking or are even talking about it,i feel a strong urge for a Jay or a Pull on a billie,so for me No i probly couldnt date a smoker because i would just start up my habit again..
For me when smoking pot,i definatly had some of the best times of my teenage life but it has its bad effects on some ppl too,not all but it definatly escalates your anger,makes you go a lil bit skitz(these were the downside for me), i felt unable to deal with alot of everyday situations without the use of my good ol mate,mary J,like for example..WORK,i could never even put in a full day at work without having a bit b4 hand..(just one example)
Although if it wasnt for these negatives,and these are only negatives to me as this is my experience and the affect its had on me(every ones different) i would still be smoking...Im a very artistic and creative person and some of my best ideas and best work has come from the help of M.J,Anyways...Basically each to their own...You have to respect the individual and their decisions but in answer to the ORIGINAL question NO i couldnt because i worked so hard,(ANd it was extremly difficult to quit)...Alot of Great OPInionS though

not a chance this way, i have seen the effects pot smoking and other types of drugs (including alcohol) can have on people after working in soime mental health faciltities, so i dont agree with some peoples veiws that pot is harmless, because it isnt, as much as alcohol isnt harmless (but i dont drink that either!!) for me it is just a hell no i wouldnt want it around me or my kids

I think that it just depends on the person. If they have very strict 'values' then they may be opposed to users. Me, myself, I'm not a smoker but I don't care if other people do it as long as it doesn't start interfering in the relationship or in daily routine (hygiene, holding down a job, etc.). Most of my female friends don't mind it as long as when there is something important to do, the guy isn't walking around higher then a kite!!

Nope don't think so. I don't partake myself and don't really have any interest in hanging around others who are into mind altering drugs.

it depends on the person also ...because drugs affect different people different ways.
some people smoke pot and you can't even tell they do...others smoke....and they are blazing.

I like POF to add a catagory to the settings page that reads:
"Pot Smoker"

A pot head
b occasionaly/ socially
c rarely
d never, up-tight, freek.................


I never smoke pot and it's not because I'm an uptight freak. I've tried it several times and I simply do not like it.

And to answer the question, I generally do not mind if the person I date smokes pot as long as they are not letting it control their lives.
