can non-pot smokers handle pot smokers?Page 54 of 77    (37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77)

He got around my "does drugs" rule, because he with held that info, saying he does it socially and occasionally.


THIS is exactly what the problem is for ME, personally. Everything that Mountain Biker88 said, makes perfect sense...and I am ok with those who smoke...I just don't want them smoking when they are working for me, or in my presence. And I HATE to be lied to. If you smoke, and are so proud of such...and you are convinced that there is nothing wrong with such...you vehemently defend such...THEN LIST IT IN YOUR PROFILE. Yes, check the "does drugs socially" selection, and don't justify your lying by not checking it, with, "Well, I do not consider pot a drug."

All of these arguments about alcohol versus drugs....when it gets down to the nitty gritty, we ALL KNOW that what POF is asking, with the selections...is Drugs equals recreational marijuana, cocaine, heroin, crack, meth, speed, downers, etc...and NOT alcohol because THAT IS A SEPERATE QUESTION, duh oh!

I know the OT was not about the selections...but seriously, folks! YES...non pot smokers CAN co-exist with pot smokers...if they are honest. :O)

I am embarrassed that you could have this opinion and be Canadian. The only reason we haven't fully legalized MJ is purely from pressure from not wanting to lose the Americans as our Number one country we wish to export to.
As a canadian you would be familiar with Pierre Burton, sad to say to you but he was a pot smoker his whole life but would you consider him to be an idiot or lazy?
The only reason no one knew this was an economic reason for his career, had he let it be known to close minded people like you, he most likely wouldn't have garnered the respect or legacy that he left behind.
It wasn't until barely weeks before his death that it became public and he did it on Rick Mercer's show.
I can't be sure you have any respect for either gentlemen but perhaps you may want to look a little closer at some of the people you admire or purchase books and music from.
Read a little history of how it came to pass that MJ became illegal in the first place and you would see that it was a political maneuver to be able to kick mexicans out of the states at a whim. It had nothing to do with the effects of pot but because like how you are holding on to your opinion it became something akin to a child who could not admit to a lie even after being caught red handed with their hand in the cookie jar.

It takes a bigger man to realize they may actually be wrong.

it takes a straight thinking man to know the difference between right and wrong.

being a doper is wrong in MOST people's opinion or marijuana would be legal.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It use to be legal to own slaves? Does that make it right?

It's legal to be an alcoholic and drink everyday, Does that make it right?

Marijuana prohibition is a joke, that's why you're still unable to give a good reason why it's illegal.

Don't worry it will happen. Many municapalities in the country are relegating the enforcement of marijuana laws to the lowest priority. I can't blame them either. I would rather law enforcement officers worry about murderers, rapists, and people who manufacture meth, then go after citizens who smoke weed.

I think drug laws are going to be on the books for awhile because no politicians want to be labaled, "soft on drugs". What's going to happened is it's going to be like the bans on sodomy, jaywalking, or oral sex (this is actually illegal in Missouri). The fact that we are now having referendums on legalizing medical marijuana and the decriminalization of recreational weed show that the attitudes in this country are changing.

One other thing tomic bomb no one is chained to mary jane. It's not physically addictive. It's like being addicted to sex, gambling, or video games. Watch someone try to quit cold turkey from heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, or even alcohol. Then compare it with someone who quits marijuana in the same fashion. You'll see what i am talking about.

I don't think so. Long term usage of pot or using alot of pot seems to make pot-smokers very very forgetful. It got frustrating then finally too much to handle especially when he forgot important events. Then it got to the point where it hurt b/c there was this, "who-cares" attitude and he preferred to sit on the couch for hours and hours stoned away even when the kids begged him to come out to play with them. No. Can't date a pot-head.

On the same token , do you not know that coffee is a drug? or alchohol? the list is long my friend of things that are excepted because they paid off the right political pockets.

Just this morning I came accross an old photo from prohibition times that showed protests to legalize beer, all dressed in suits.
Even is one was to admit that okay in a very loose interpretation of the meaning that it is a drug, no one here of the nay sayers has really given any rational reasons for it to be illegal other than what they have been told.
A lazy person is a lazy person whether he drinks or smokes or whatever.

A closed mind is a terrible thing to have a rational debate with.

i love the smell of pot, but i don't smoke it anymore. i guess it depends on how frequent of a smoker the other person is. 24/7 i can't handle.

It's not about a rational debate....the poster was talking specifically about POF PROFILES...and thus the point I have been trying to make in reference to POF PROFILES. Unless you are not the brightest crayon in the box....everyone KNOWS that the drop down selections for DRUGS means....recreational drugs...NOT coffee, alcohol (there is a seperate one for that!!), prescribed unabused drugs, or freaking fertilizer, for that matter!

Sheesh! Is it too much to ask that people answer questions honestly and not try to skirt the truth with this sort of bullsh1t??

Then wouldn't it make it a heck of a lot easier if the question was changed to "do you smoke pot?" ? yes , no, occasionally, or socially.
We could avoid this crap semantic BS about whether it is a drug and move on.

If I do not believe it is a drug then it does not apply to me. Heroin, cocainne, meth, LSD, ecstasy are drugs.

I know people will get upset about this, but cest le vie, thats life. Anyways, back to the question "Can non pot smokers handle pot smokers?" well, not on this forum! hahaha, honestly I love that we were all able to say these points on the internet, you know, I love Canada and the United States because we are free and able, if you don't want it you don't have to take it. Prescription drugs, yes, drugs, are seeming 'addictive' too, psychologically. I've seen 2 women I used to work with freak out if they didn't take their 'calm me down bought from the shelf in any store pills'. Of course thats not what its was called but I'm just making clear whether it be Midol, Asperin, Tylenol, people do freak out for it. Coffee and nicotine, ya, some people see those as drugs too, because it affects thier bodies and becomes addictive. I've watched my mom kick her caffeine addiction and she had the feverish sweats and major headaches, has anyone here not had thier daily dose of caffeine/nicotine???? lets stop talking about what is drugs and what is not. Can non pot smokers handle pot smokers? That would always lead to who the people are aside from what they chose to alter their perceptions anyways, because after all, anyone can be a di*k.

great thing about life ~ there someting for everyone ~ and there is a time and place.

it's all these differences ~ that keep us amused and entertained ~ with all these likes , dislikes and preferences.

We've all a head full of illusions on some level ~ some comfort zone.

So ~ what is it that you want and enjoy in your life?

Myself ~ I reached a point years ago ~ I like to keep life simple and clear, realizing I'm not smart enough to handycap my mind with trips to la la land. ~ but I've still got the sticker on my luggage and remember the jorneys and how I got here, where I'm at today. ~

I've no interest in putting "laws" in effect to make it any easier from you then it was for me.

and as for profile ~ they should indicate where you are today! ~ and no need to reflect where you've been.

okay you all are right, I'll leave you be to argue and argue until you eventually find there is nothing left to argue about, but that may not happen to any of you, and you lost sight of the question which I proved in my last post, none of you can get along and the question was answered long ago. I appreciate the insults though, difference is, I didn't mean mine nor did any of you stop to think about what I was saying. Why would anyone? everything is face value, as it is easy to live easy to die.

disrespectful. unclassy. yet unfortuently, quite true.

Weed is a drug. its classifed as an illegal narcotic.
It should be decriminilized because studys have continuosly shown that its less harmful then Alcahol and Cigerettes.
Unfortuently, both of those have very wealthy lobbiest groups who work their hardest to keep them legal and weed illegal.

Personally, I smoke weed, but i put No to drugs in my profile. Why? because
I wouldn't smoke it around the person until they conveyed their comfortability with it. If they were not comfortable with me smoking it, and there seemed to be a strong chance of the realtionship moving on, I'd quit. Why? cause its not that important to me.

That said, i believe a smoker and a non smoker can live in harmony ( i did it for a year and a half).

I won't date pot smokers. Technically, it's an illegal drug. So if they get pulled over, or busted for it and you're somewhere around, that could be bad for you too. I don't like the way pot affects people, especially if they are heavier users. They don't seem to be aware of the severe mood swings in can induce in them. They assume they are "mellow" when really, many of the pot smokers I've known, are not. They get edgy, irritable, impatient, immature, moody, childish, etc. Ugh. Forget that nonsense.

Dating is hard enough, without adding illegal substances to the mix.

well i don't know. I used to smoke, probably a lot and have now chosen not to for a while. I have nothing against those who still do smoke, but I guess it depends on the reasons why one of the people do not smoke. If it's for job security, then I can see both sides being alright with it, but if it's for personal choices or lifestyle reasons I can see it being a problem. Honestly though, (and i think this is stupid) but i sometimes get upset at how much fun people have when their high. Like when I watch a movie and know it would be more funny if I were high, I get upset when other people enjoy it on another level because their stoned out of their mind. I'm happy for my decision not to smoke anymore, but it's still hard being around those situations.
