Legalities aside, I could care less if someone toked up occasionally. I might have a problem, however, if they felt they couldn't function on a daily basis without it and did it every hour on the hour. I like my guys sharp, not in a smoke induced haze on a constant basis. To me, it's no different than having an occasional drink socially or being a drunk who can't live without the bottle. There's a point at which it becomes a crutch more than anything else.

Generally the accepted interpretation of a question in the English language is it's clear and stated meaning .
The question on the POF questionnaire is " Do you do drugs?" NOT
"Do You Do illegal drugs?" Or
"Do You Do Narcotics?" Or
"Do You Only Do Prescribed Drugs?"
To argue that any other than the plain and clear meaning of this statement applies to marijuana smokers is "specious"
For those unfamiliar with the term :

spe┬Ěcious (spshs)
adj.
1. Having the ring of truth or plausibility but actually fallacious: a specious argument.
2. Deceptively attractive.


To answer the question truthfully, if you take a aspirin you should reply ..." YES"
OR if you drink coffee ``` (caffeine) your reply should be .. "YES"
To continue to attack those that smoke pot and answer " No" ... is in fact Arbitrary & Capricious ... should every person that takes any drug answer "YES?"
I would be willing to gamble that in excess of 90 percent of those answering answer falsely!
Most not by intent but by misinterpretation !

My only quandary with pot smokers is that they have a more carefree "I don't care" attitude, they forget more and invest more time in their habit (high) then in trying to make something work. That has been my experience with one anyways.....so in that case it was a hassle.....

No I can't.
It is illegal where I live.
It is expensive and would prefer my money spent on something more logical like bills. I also think a man that complains about buying clothing that has worn out yet can buy pot is in denial.
It is mentally addictive.
It has been proven that all smoke contains carcinogens. Smoking causes cancer.

Now if you got it for free and used one of the new vaporizing units and lived in a country where it wasn't illegal, go for it. But as long as it is illegal, costs money, and is smoked via a joint or bong type of way, you aren't someone I wish to be around as a romantic interest. Yeah, I don't care what my friends do as long as it isn't around me. Been there done that, had the mug shot.

Amen!!! I'd date with a pot smoker any day over a drinker/drunk! I've seen a drunk steal alcohol or steal to get the alcohol. The pot smoker might steal...Twinkies! I don't get high, either.

I think the bottom line is that it comes to philosophical differences.

Personally, I have nothing against pot, but it isn't prudent for me to associate with smokers, so I don't.

I don't agree with drinking and driving nor smoking and driving, but if you are landed, then I really do not see much of a problem with it.

At first. society said it made you lethargic, then they said it made you violent. Which is it?

So long as one meets their responsibilities as an adult, what they do in their recreation time should not be governmentally regulated, if it is just marijuana or alcohol. That draws another gray line, though, as to where you draw the line.

Nice post NocturnalPrincess ............. Especially considering that you are in Law Enforcement!
I'd like to second your notation:

"So long as one meets their responsibilities as an adult, what they do in their recreation time should not be governmentally regulated, if it is just marijuana or alcohol."

What human beings chose to put in their bodies in this country are part of the essence of the Liberty Clause of our Constitution ........ Which has been seriously eroded.
When any drug use becomes so serious by a individual that it might harm society, It then becomes appropriate for society to take action .... against that individual.
Marijuana has not been show to cause such harm and is gradually being accepted as the least harmful illicit drug available by the more thoughtful persons in our country; and in fact far less harmful then many "legal" & controlled substances, such as alcohol & cigarettes and even Peanut butter ! (More directly attributed deaths to peanuts than Marijuana)
It is the largest cash crop in the United States on a state by state basis, and goes untaxed.
The harm done by its "illegality" is enormous ... from extortion& robbery to murder !
Were it legal, the profit benefit to the criminal element would disappear overnight, the courts would be unburdened by 750,000 simple possession cases, and a 100, 000 more serious cases ... possession with the intent to distribute, and if left to the free market with taxation at $50 per ounce from licensed growers ... would uplift the economy by 300 to 500 BILLION dollars a year. Since our prisons contain 40% drug related offenders, the savings there alone would be enormous!
Cost to society .... very little!
It would allow up to 45 million persons to come out of the closet from all walks of life,
and give a fresh breath of air to Liberty in this country!
Thanks again NocturnalPrincess for your thoughtful comment!

My ex girlfriend did it, and it was tough to deal with. I didn't want it in my house, so these skanky men would come over and she would go out to their car and do it with them. If it was an occasional thing at a party it would be a completely different story, but I would never put up with that again.

I congratulate this thread, 1529 posts and still going strong.

Of course, the argument has been going 'round in circles since the very first page!

A lot has happened in the US in the last 6 months.
A change of a radical rightist executive branch, to a Democratic president; who with a phone call to his Attorney General, Eric Holder, instituted a policy change, which effectively stopped the federal governments attack on individual states rights, to legislate laws allowing Medical Marijuana!
This is a major change in this country! In states that have passed this type of legislation Medical marijuana is obtainable legally!
You are right ... after 1530 post the discussion here still appears to be going in circles!
But ... ignorance in any subject is difficult and slow to combat.
At least this discussion takes place and hopefully softens a few hearts and minds ....
and those that are forced to remain in the "closet" know they are not alone!

Here we go with another one of those discussions

Person A: Smoking marijuana is bad because it is illegal and it kills brain cells. I would never associate myself with a pothead because they're diluted.

Person B: I don't care either way. People choose what they put in their bodies, and who am I to say what does or doesn't belong in their body.

Person C: Smoking marijuana is perfectly OK for reasons A, B and C. If you think smoking marijuana is bad for you, you are wrong and I will do everything I can to prove you wrong. Marijuana should be legalized because alcohol and cigarettes are worse.

Person D: Who cares?

Isn't option 'D' made redundant by option 'B'?

Not entirely, because Person B obviously cared enough to give reasons for why they don't care. One who truly doesn't care, such as person D, would have never put thought into it in the first place.

You are correct though, it is redundant in a way. I didn't re-read my post...as I almost never do.

Hello,can anyone say Illegal,criminal offense,jail time!.a woman does'nt need money to buy pot. Can you walk into a convenient store and buy it like a Pepsi?.Or do you have to do it behind closed doors,flying under the radar and committing shady deals in the shadows. It leads to Immoral and criminal behaviour. I'm not going to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and go down for someones stupidity! Will you prove it's not mine and take the rap and responsibility,if pulled over by the police? NO.

I am a proponent for the legalization of marijuana.

I had said I would never cite someone for marijuana that I could make disappear, and wouldnch'a know my first marijuana bust was like fifteen pounds. It was a consent search.

There was a consent search about twenty years ago, and a clever defense attorney got the evidence suppressed, because the suspects were deemed too stoned to be competent to authorize consent. They were legally incompetent so all of the evidence was denied.

Don't drink and drive. Don't smoke and drive. Order delivery and stay home.

I do not believe that marijuana leads to immoral and criminal behavior, and I also do not believe that it is a "gateway drug." I have had to babysit many prisoners who got arrested for heroin, and their gateway drug was legally prescribed Oxycontin, but when their script ran out they found out that heroin was easier and cheaper to get (synthetic heroin).

What does that have to do with the price of eggs in Lower Mongolia?
The statement, by it's implication, is a insult to women as a group ....
Perhaps you could explain what you mean by it?

There is a load of bull kicking through this thread. If you're one of the 1% most conservative people on the planet the question isn't for you. The rest of us don't need to hear your plans to send 20% of the populace to prison and cut off appendages of a bunch of quiet dealers.
For others who don't smoke, but wish to broaden our circle with friends that may be dissimilar-- well its a worthwhile question. Is pot smoking a deal breaker?
Well, it does seem to calm folk with anger management issues. The illegality doesn't seem an issue where I live. There's no link up to greater crimes, health problems or dangerous lifestyles here. All the studies and whatever that anyone wishes to pound into this thread can't change the obvious - alcohol is a much more dangerous drug - cigarette smoking is a bit less healthy overall - indulgence in saturated foods and corn syrups are a more serious health issue in every sense. By the way, the world is more or less a sphere, stars are far away suns, we evolved from lesser creatures and dinosaur bones are not some practical joke meant to test our faith.
I prefer those who smoke even though I can't. Its a nice smell - and seems to isolate moments as recreational and relaxing. I like the cool little machines and intricate glass and bamboo bongs too.
But there's a defensive preachiness and inner-circle exclusiveness that smokers sometimes project - that's irritating to deal with, especially in groups.

Okay to solve everyones question, pot has nothing to do with it. Something like 72% of canadians have either tried it or are still using it recreationally. The only thing that matters is when you are not willing to give up your chosen habit for the person you truelly believe may be the one. I mean its understandable if someone who doesnt smoke pot, does not wish to have it around them or even be around when it is being used, after all, do not forget, it is still illegal, however for someone to quit a frequent habbit for someone they just met is obsurd. On the other hand, they should have the respect for that other person and not do it in their presence. after the relationship builds and there is potential for future advancement, then maybe that person should think about quiting, or see if their partner is still okay with it or not. it all has to do with time really, how much do you truelly care about that person?
