At the age of 23, yes I am proud of what I have achieved


It's your life, you can do what you want....If you're 'proud' being a dope user more power to you....

Sorry, I just don't have any respect for people like you.....and I'm proud of that.

I smoked it for a long time, quitting after it started messing with my head, I was just one of those people who shouldn't have smoked it. Im not for or against it. I would date a marijuanna smoker, the only thing I would request is not to push it on me, which I think is fair. I have enough will power to be able to hang around someone smoking it without succumbing to the old addiction, so yeah... thats my 2 cents.

Anyway, I more than make up for giving up pot with my excessive caffeine, nicotine and gaming addictions.

Im also partial to 2 minute noodles, being a broke student/computer technician/bass player.

Duuude…..pass me the bong, I need another hit…..I can’t deal with life unless I get stoned every frickin day…dude, lets see how long it takes me to fry most of my brain cells… I’m not an idiot, I’m so cool dude….


I don't care if you respect me or not, you are insignificant.

Just don't classify all pot smokers as you did in your first post, and if you are going to say pot smoke kills your brain cells, at least have some scientific evidence to back up your claims.

Studies done by

Neuropsychiatry Research Unit, Department of Psychiatry, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

Department of Neurology, Xijing Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi’an, People’s Republic of China

Department of Biomedical Sciences, Program in Neuroscience, University of Maryland, Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Have shown that cannabinoids promote embryonic and adult hippocampus neurogenesis and produce anxiolytic and antidepressant-like effects.

Or in plain English

There is evidence that some cannabinoids even promote neurogenesis in the brain (stimulate growth)

(the following can be researched online)
Government experts now admit that - marijuana doesn't kill brain cells.

-Dr. Christine Hartel, Acting Director of Research, National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA).

Probably why the ONDCP ads have changed direction again. It should also be noted that other drugs, including alcohol, are known to cause brain damage.

Pot has become so widely used and much less criminalized and villainous as it once was, thanks to this beautiful internet and our insane levels of curiosity. Silly humans.

I know a guy who quit selling pot, which he did to suppliment his income (it was a matter of laziness). Regardless of how safe he was about the process, his girlfriend (who, mind you, is quite a drinker herself), always worried about her guy because of the while silly legality/bureaucracy thing what with the 800 some pound gorilla in the room shouting about how

"this plant is bad for you to use medicinally/recreationally!"

...only to take a breath and say...

"You need sleep, take THIS pill!" (® with prescription)

Oh right, so... if you're responsible and you use it for a legit medicinal purpose, there really shouldn't be any problems but its understandable for some people to be afraid of man's laws. All the same, if you're ok with it, some people can be very nice and lovey when they are smoking and around people they like

This is and always (hopefully) will be a choice, not a privilege or "thought crime". People have been using the internet to communicate, at least popularly, since 1997 (some before with Prodigy, man I feel old!)... so as a people, we're communicating more globally, less biased than we ever have before and getting more ideas around so all this pseudo-criminal nonsense about pot being bad for you and how the war on drugs really supports a corrupt area of American government (or in plenty of other countries) bent on taking money from the people, who have broken "their" enacted laws but contradict the American constitution (and my Canadian friends will agree that is just as full of bunk up north too).

Just be cool with one another

mclovin says~~~

I have held a job in one of the largest financial services firms in the world, was one of the highest performing specialists employed there, and I smoked pot multiple times, daily.
IF YOU'RE SO PROUD OF IT WHY DON'T YOU INFORM YOUR BOSS, NOT BRAG ABOUT IT HERE? BECAUSE YOU'LL GET FIRED THAT'S WHY! AND RIGHTLY SO...

i get a kick out you dopers saying pot is so relaxing, should be decrimalized and anyone who doesn't agree with you that pot is good is an uptight freak with no good argument. what a joke. you people should SEE yourselves. but you can't. all you see is the twilight zone of your smokey hazy addled lives, pushing away and resisting reality in your mind altered state of the walking dead. most americans view you as pathetic in the least and as i do criminals and bad americans at the most.

somethings are right and some things are wrong. wastoids who use dope are bad. there is no other way to put it. you need to get off your dope crutch and walk like a man.

once again, america needs clear thinkers not people who prefer to be zonked out zombies stumbling around trying to find their way in life. the more you argue for legalization (absurd!) the stronger we'll go against it. all i have to do is point to the once great city of san fran-sicko. do you see what pot has done there? it's now a a trash town full of loons and loafers.

sheesh get a real life! you have no argument. it's nonsense. you should be in jail. we don't need nor want you in society.

Like I said earlier. My boss is aware. Learn how to read. It's actually a very recent post.

Your idea is also stupid, putting pot smokers in JAIL?! LOL!!!

I'm not American, thank God. Go ahead, keep throwing harmless pot heads in jail, bankrupt your already trade deficit burdened country even faster.

You actually put up no argument either. Other than, that you don't like potheads.

I also have friends in law enforcement that know I smoke pot. They didn't know until I told them. It kind of changed their perspectives on the matter as well.

I am so happy I live in Canada.

there's no way on earth you told your boss or the police. now dope has you lying. do you really work for a large financial institution? lol what a joke.
you're probably sitting in your parent's basement wondering when they're going to leave so you can rifle through their possessions to get drug money.
stay in canada. please. come here and we will arrest you.

read this from the assoc. press...

Amsterdam, Netherlands-Amsterdam unveiled plans Saturday to close brothels, sex shops and marijuana cafes in its ancient city center as part of a major effort to drive organized crime out of the tourist haven.
the city is targeting businesses that "generate criminal activity," including gambling parlors and the so called "coffee shops" where marijuana is sold openly. also targeted peep shows,massage parlors and souvenir shops used by drug dealers for money laundering.

what does that say for "harmless" pot smoking SFB!

The issue really does net out to whether or not you are willing to break the laws of our country - and where you live really does factor into how strenuously those laws are enforced.

While many of us would support the legalization of marijuana at this point it is still illegal to use, sell, or possess the drug. As long as it is illegal, eventually someone must deal with criminals to procure your recreational drug of choice. (Even if you purchase from a friend, some purchased from a dealer, etc. etc.)

In many states, locals, etc. it is a felony to possess any amount and it is a felony to possess with the intent to sell in many more jurisdictions. There is even a website where you can check the marijuana laws in your area.

Unfortunately I have seen several young people (friends and relatives) who got sucked into the misperception that "it's just pot" and now have a felony on their records. Unfortunately unless you have the money for a very good attorney, public defenders don't really make a lot of effort to get lighter sentences for their clients - a felony record with parole and/or suspended sentence is a good deal in their opinion. Unfortunately, for the remainder of these young people's lives every time they fill out an employment application the choice will be, lie and get caught, or answer honestly the question "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" and not get the job!

Work to legalize pot and then perhaps we can make the choice - smoke or not - as simply as we make the choice to have a glass of wine or not!

Not even a matter of can us non pot smoking people handle the ones that do...it boils down to do we even want to. Not because it is illegal, I simply for myself do not care to be around someone who gets stupid and high all the time. There are better things to be doing with my time than watching someone do drugs. Period. Even the so called "anti depressents" and all the other garbage people dump into their bodies because they are to uneducated to find ways to fix what is wrong. And most of the time, the things that are making them do ANY of these drugs, are all things they seem to be allowing to happen to them in the first place. If people would try to rectify the real issues they have going on, and start living a "normal" healthy life, maybe they would not be getting all cracked out on pot, pills and God knows what else. Work hard, enjoy one glass of red wine, pay your bills and go to bed. It is not that hard. Get high, run the risk of losing a job or not even having one, God help you.

Kudos to you. (Maybe this is one of the reasons our economy went to hell? TEE HEE ~ all the "financial wizards" are stoned and completely zoned through the past 8 or so years?)

~OT~ NOPE. Can't handle it, can't stand it, don't want it around me and can't stand to be around those who are high. I like to spend time amongst the living ~ that whole laughing 60 seconds after the punchline just irritates the shiit out of me. To each their own ~

The economy went to shit because of Americans living beyond their means. The average American has 7 credit cards, many with balances in the five figure mark. That was not my fault. America is so f*cked

I have always been amazed at the fact that so many people are concerned with what others do in their personal lives. If you're not a pot smoker, I can understand why you would not want to date one, and that's you're right. However I think it's a bit presumptuous to assume everyone who smokes marijuana is a unemployed burnt-out stoner who sits on the couch and does nothing but eat potato chips all day. It's the equivalent of me assuming everyone who has a beer after work, is a raging alcoholic who is only moments away from crashing thier SUV into a schoolbus full of children. When you do that, it shows how truely ignorent and uneducated you are.

If you don't believe me look at some of the posts by tomicbomb. He advocates putting people in jail for smoking marijuana. If you're really think marijuana prohibition is working and is a good thing then i have to question you're connection with reality. We spend over 40 billion dollars a year on waging a war against cannabis dispite the fact that it is not physically addictive, can be used a medicine, and has never caused an overdose. In an earlier post he also stated that someone should have their kids taken away because they smoke weed. I can honestly say that you're an extremist, and I am glad that people with your mindset are very rare. I also like how you insulted an entire major city to prove your "point". I don't like to flame people online, but in your case I can't help it. You are a ignorent simple-minded troll. I hope that someday you can stop repeating talking points and form a coherent argument

I also know someone made a point about how you always come into contact with a criminal when you use weed. Well that's a direct result of prohibition. It's just like when spirits were illegal and the only way you could get some was to deal with the mafia. You could also risk losing your vision and try to make your own moonshine.
Now that alcohol is legal, the Food and Drug Administration makes sure that its safe, and you can buy it at a gas station. If we legalize cannabis, we could cut out all of the criminal element. We could also have the FDA regulate it's purity.

I've always lived by the concept of, "what you do behind close doors is your business, as long as it don't effect me". If you want to smoke a joint or drink a beer that's your business, and i am not going to demonize you because of what you do recreationally. If you choose to drive stone, or come to work high that's where I take issue. Millions of people are able to drink responsibly, and i believe that millions of pot smokers can do the same.

That depends solely on those involved.

For me, one of the first guys who contacted me on this site, turned out to be a pot smoker.
He got around my "does drugs" rule, because he with held that info, saying he does it socially and occasionally.

In this case, I'm not fond of pot smokers.
I'll be friends with them, but I would never date them.

It may have gone down to 4 because of the "credit crisis" because many Americans defaulted on their credit cards, had their accounts closed and can not get new cards. So maybe it's 4 now, when I was in banking it was 7. That's what happens when you have tightening credit conditions in the USA...

McLovin ~ you are 23 ~

With all respects ~ you experience and wisdom exceed your years.

I was 23 once ~ having one war and one marriage behind me ~ I too thought I knew much.

Weed come in many qualities ~ from all over the world ~ and some is grown under Lab conditions ~ so there "NO" standard as to exactly how it affects someone. ~ or what one might be able to get away with ~ or attempt to do under the infulence.

There's weed ~~ and then there's ~ WEED

Willie stated just last week ~ He' s out lived his pecker! ~ He moved to Hawaii for the weed , climate and golf ~~ not the women I suppose, ask him if it's addictive.

I'd venture to guess it happened long ago ~ he's just reached the point and age to speak of such things and laugh about it! ~

As for habit forming ~ anything you like and enjoy is habit forming ~ you keep returning ~ crack being the worst! ~and weed and whisky are about the same ~ they just make you act stupid, and both will send you to jail ~ one loner then the other. and of the two , whisky is the sneekest, ~ you think you don't need it ~ you just want is all!

I have torn the dash out of a 66 Ramble ~ looking for that rocket that fell down the defroster vent holes 2 months prior~~ so don't bullsh1t the bullsh1tter !

You are right on about will nelson. If you happened to have caught the steven colbert christman special, he sang a new christmas song about the magical herb.

I think the whole anti pot thing has reached the point of being rediculous, But as Green Day says I am glad I not a **** head American who has blindly allowed themselves to believe the crap that comes from their government as gospel.

Well I don't believe its addictive, I am not a heavy smoker any more, I actually haven't smoked any for quite some time, I can if I want to. I live in the province of British Columbia, it is readily available here(almost everywhere you go), consumed by professionals, and the average Joe. I have smoked it with my bosses in the past(after our shift), and I have grown my own personal pot in the past, used a 250 watt high pressure sodium light in my closet to grow them. They were organic 100%. A very nice plant indeed. When I did get weed, it was only from people I knew, and people who grew their own organic pot. My doctor, my friends, and bosses all are aware that I smoke it, at least it's not crack.

Now, I hope you understand this but POT will not get you sent to jail, not where I live. At least not simple possession of marijuana. Several judges in BC have ruled that marijuana laws are in fact unconstitutional. The only way you get into trouble with pot around here, is usually if you're sending truckloads full of it to the USA, because Americans seem to have more against it for some reason. Personally I wish we didn't send it to the USA, I wish you guys grew your own.

Besides from a financial aspect why would the government want to put pot smokers in jail? Please provide a valid reason.

I pay over $900.00 CAD per month just in income taxes. If they were to jail me, they(the government, the people of Canada) would lose out on those $900.00 per month. I earn my living honestly and I don't see how it can be a fiscally responsible thing to jail pot smokers.

Now think of this, in 2001 641,108 Americans were charged with marijuana POSSESSION. Not trafficking, possession.

If you let these Americans live free, and they each paid $900 in income taxes each month:

$900 in income tax X 641,108 harmless jailed citizens =

$576,997,200.00 <--- Per month in potential income tax revenue to the government

$576,997,200.00 X 12 Calendar months of the year =

$6,923,966,400.00

That's nearly 7 BILLION dollars worth of tax revenue that never got collected in 2001. Instead, Americans had to pay the following:

Operating costs averaged $22,650
per inmate in fiscal year 2001
(according to a US government website)

That's $14,521,096,200 spent to jail people who simply possessed marijuana.

That's a hell of a lot of money. Not a good idea to spend so much when the USA is running a huge account deficit already. I can imagine that in 2008 the numbers would be much higher.

In regards to your well-written point of view about pot smokers who contribute money towards income taxes I would have to agree with you that the American public wastes a great deal of money with pot smokers themselves but I can't for the life of me come to an understanding of how you got from 641,108 people being arrested for simple, possession of marijuana...

To the conclusion that 641,108 people were jailed continuously for a period of one year?
How did you come from point A to Point B.!?

Now if you're doing a hypothetical that the people were gelled for a year because of marijuana use your numbers may or may not be right I didn't check them... however and at no point did you say this was a hypothetical situation you just jumped from point A to Point B. where it costs the American taxpayers for team $14 .5 billion to keep people in jail for marijuana possession!

You have proven to be a bigger idiot,,, then what you are trying to defend!

What I do find interesting is that this is the exact reason that I myself don't deal with people that smoke pot because they have this uncanny ability to justify some stupid self-serving nonsensical point of view while stoned on the crap itself.

Unless I am missing something I would like you to explain how it went from possession arrests to serving years the clank and costing $14.5 billion each year?

You can't do it because there is no justification other than what's inside your small little mind and that is compromised because of the THC content much higher than you should actually be allowed to walk around with and still function in today's society.

My brother does things like this a.k.a. comes to some ideological conclusion when he is stoned and can't see where he has made any error,,, and when he finally does come out of his stupor,,, still doesn't have the ability to contemplate that he made a mistake,,, or that he has caused anyone any damage.,,, because he was partying!

However my brother is an idiot,,, and like most idiots there is a reason that he is an idiot and in his particular case it is drugs and alcohol a.k.a. marijuana and beer!


In any event if you're going to write an article at least proof read it before you post it...

It is this exact stupidity and runs rampant within the mind of a pothead that they CANT,, even see the mistakes that are totally blatantly put in front of them that they created themselves inside their minds which have been turned to mush for one reason or another in regards to,,, or because of,,, drug and alcohol addiction.

And people in America do not get put in jail for years,,, for possession of marijuana you moron!

They do get arrested,,, and they do pay fines and in some city as little as $15-$50 for each simple possession offense,,, but you have blown this out of proportion beyond any possible comprehension on my behalf and I would like for you to justify this totally nonsensical point of view you just posted...

In some cases people do get put in jail for a few days but I don't know anyone who has been put in jail for years because of simple possession,,,

You are an idiot at best make love in,,,

I HAVE HAD NO PROBLEM IN THAT AREA JUST IN GENERAL . I'D RATHER HAVE A GUY SMOKE POT, THAN ACT LIKE A DRUNKEN BUFOON! THIER WHOLE BEHAVIOR CHANGES WITH ALCOHOL. POT DOESN'T DO THAT, AT LEAST NOT FOR ME. I SMOKE BECAUSE I HAVE CHRONIC PAIN, AND POT IS THE ONLY THING THAT WORKS. IT IS DEFINETLY UNDER RATED IN THE MEDICAL SOCIETY IF YOU ASK ME. I'M UP TO FURTHER DEBATE ON THIS SUBJECT, OR ANY OTHER, BUT IT WILL HAVE TO WAIT, I'M RECIEVING GUESTS RIGHT NOW FOR X-MAS. MERRY CHRISTMAS, TAMMY-IN-TRANSIT.

Since Federal Law still says that Marijuana is illegal and possession of it is illegal I am not ready to hang out with someone who puts my life in legal danger. Most pot smokers have a motivational syndrone... They are the was gonna guys that tell you all these great plans but never take action on the... Like the song Referman... I was gonna pay my taxes but i got stones, I was gonna buy her flowers, but I got stoned. Medical Marijuan is a joke there are only like 2 peolpe in the country that have a script and it's for gov pot that is 2 percent thc. The avage pot smoke would kill the dealer for selling them that bad a dope. Besides Marijauna is really only effective for HIV and late stage Cancer... not sure I would be planning to get in a long tern relationship with those people. Why are thing like this more of a hassle for women? Becuase more women have standards....Some guys will do anything that moves... If you don't beleive it go to you local strip, look and the prositutes and know that someone is paying for that...
