migivadamssbusted,,, Why do you and other self important bigots and hipocrits feel that your opinions are so important to people that are trying to have an inteligent debate?
Your narrow minded attitudes remind me of the people that rebuked columbus for saying the world is round.
Why don't you try reading all about the complete history of hemp instead?
There is a book that was written by Jack Herror about this subject.
The emporor wears no clothes, is the title.....
I do not condone druggies.. But i do like a realistic factual debate.
You give the impresion that you are so closed minded that you are not willing to even learn anything because of youe pre-concieved notions.

POF should change that filter to read "must not consume marijuana".
That would end this ridiculous debate.
Pot smokers will always be here. Pot haters will always be here.
I stay away from pot haters. They have a need to force their beliefs on me.
Pot smokers dont walk around trying to force me to smoke pot, they generally mind their own business. Pot haters are mostly.....well.......haters! They are gleeful when they see a pot smoker put in a cage like some vermin. They don't see that person has been violated, they only see their self righteousness shine. They sit on high horses and say stupid words like "you broke the law and you need to be punished". They never get it through their thick helmets that punishment has never solved anything. Ever. Pot smokers have been punished continuously and there is absolutely no evidence anywhere stating pot smoking is on the decline.
I have no problems with the "must not use drugs filter". It works for me too as it filters out the haters . By the way, through my own experiences I have found that pot hating women are mostly crappy in bed anyway.

I'm still thinking on taking bets on which profile the OP wanted to email but had a 'must not do drugs' restriction on it.


so.. only looked back 3-4 pages and haven't seen much in the way if intelligent debate from the local potheads and burnouts. have they come up with anything but dogma and derision yet?

I wouldn't date any man that smokes weed just like I wouldn't date a man that smokes cigarettes. It smells and I don't like getting second hand smoke.

Cannabis is a drug. You use it. You are a druggie. You are weak. You have no self control.


I personally think there is a HUGE difference between 'doing drugs' and being 'a druggie'. I have the odd toke of a joint every so often and I certainly do not consider myself a druggie. I have had serious problems with some hardcore drugs in the past and yes, I was in a bad place and nobody should have had to deal with my problems. But now, I have a great job, I enjoy alcohol responsibly, I socialise, I travel, I volunteer. I'm not a bad person, and I certainly don't have a drug problem anymore. I completely respect people who wish to filter out those who chose to dabble. It's your choice, I can imagine it must be awkward sometimes if you don't do drugs and the person you are dating does. A relationship can't work if one person is doing something the other person is strongly against. Like for me, I could never date someone who hunted.

Anyway, just that comment I quoted spurred me to reply. I am simply pointing out that there is a difference between the two.

I've always found people who smoke bud to generally be more open-minded and tolerant of others. This is what I look for in partners, so dating potheads might not be that bad a choice for a mate. I can certainly think of far worse things a person can be.

I can't be involved with anyone who does drugs and that goes for the recreational kind. It's not that I have anything against weed, as I've had my share in my teens. And that was the only kind of drug I ever did.
But with the kind of job I have all I would need is something like that coming up in the ever continuing background checks and I would be the one questioned about it even with them knowing that I'm clean. So, I'm not going to take a chance with that.

averageblonde222,,,,,, Smoking anything is bad for you... BUT,, marijuana is best consumed by making tea or using it as an ingredient in food, Like brownies...
The reason it is usaly smoked has to do with the prohibition driving the price sky high..
If a person was in a free country and could grow their own , then smoking it would diminish...
Also there is no lethal dose.. You don't die from using this plant..
If the government was to stay out of peoples lives and legalize freedom, many things would change for the better..
Anything can be abused and many things are abused.. The power of government is abused more than anything on earth..

Cannabis is a drug.

Why do people insist on perpetuating such ignorance? Cannabis is a plant. It is not processed in any way, shape or form. It is harvested, cured and consumed. It has proven medicinal qualities just like lots of other plants (many of which must be processed, some including the addition of chemicals). I pose the following questions for the more rabid Christian types: 1) Did God create all the plants? 2) Did God give all the plants and seeds to mankind for our use? 3) If so, are you saying that God is evil or stupid? Just like I believe scripture indicates that the ingestion of wine is not a sin but drinking excessively to the point of drunkeness (AKA 'chemical abuse') is, I see marijuana use in much the same light.
No, I no longer use marijuana but if it was legal I probably would imbibe occassionally. If I had a medical need for it and could not obtain 'medical marijuana,' d*** straight I would obtain it by illegal means. As a former recreational user and the ex of someone addicted to truly insidious chemicals (and, no, marijuana was not his gateway drug; that would be alcohol), I do recognize the benefits of marijuana use in specific instances.

lol... try doing Laplace Transform when you stoned. I use it for work. (http://mathworld.wolfram.com/LaplaceTransform.html) Just because you get high doesnt mean you are not intelligent. People that make statements such as the above are ignorant.

Arghhh… I can’t take it anymore. Pro-cannabis or anti-cannabis: It doesn't matter! we need to understand the issues and quit spouting misinformation. Nebula, KFGuy, et al, can I get a witness?

Windroper: Even by the loosest of definitions Cannabis is a drug just like alcohol, caffeine and nicotine. Just because a substance can be obtained naturally doesn’t mean it isn’t a drug. They all might need to be regulated but not banned.

Just like I believe scripture indicates that the ingestion of wine... I see marijuana use in much the same light.
I have no idea where some of the more mainstream religions got the idea that consuming alcohol in moderation is a sin. In fact when it comes to wine specifically, I do believe abstinence is actually contrary to scripture. I can’t recall where any herb was given the same status but neither can I recall where one was to be avoided.

Since the drug in Cannabis is naturally occurring, if it were legal I do believe I might consider giving it a try too. Where do I sign the petition to legalize it? It’s time we take the profits away from the true criminals and quit turning average citizens into criminals. The current drug laws are pointless and unfair. The attempts to enforce them only consume capital that could be better spent elsewhere.

Until then…

This thread is great if, for no other reason, it indicates how profoundly uneducated and uninsightful the anti-pot crowd is. Hard to believe that functioning adult humans believe some of the primitive, irrational things posted here. In 2007 no less. Incredible. Utterly incredible.

And most of those posters are social drinkers and ex-smokers? Wild...

You might object to some drugs being classified as illegal however the law is the law, would you want to see kids smoking pot? When I was 12 my folks went out for New Years and I tried whiskey, I got so sick , now that's a nasty drug, it should have been locked up. When I've suffered from the events that brought about my being single many suggested drugs, legal ones, I don't like drugs and am repulsed by doing anything illegal especially right now, There are some meds I have to take for blood pressure since age 26, cholesterol, etc, that's certainly already not a turn on.

Drugs aren't classified as "illegal." They're classified as "controlled." Possession of them without the proper authorization or credentials is called "illegal."

For you Trudydoogooders who think that drinking is ok and then sit back and codemn these folks who want to have a puff every now and then well here are some facts. I can't tell you how many profiles I read that for a first date the mention of having some sort of beverage and generally implying an alcoholic beverage is suggested. Whats up with that? Cant meet and function normally with someone without having your mind altered? I could use the same logic some of you choose by saying I wouldnt date a drinker because......

1. I hate the smell of alcohol on someones breath after they have been drinking.
2. The use of alcohol makes people less trustworthy while intoxicated.
3. Alcohol consumption can turn people into homocidal killers when combined with
driving.
4. People can become beligerant and mean when under the influence of alcohol
5. Alcohol use can and does destroy families.
6. Alcohol is a gateway drug

If you think that alcohol is a safer drug than pot check out the statstics........
Alcohol is only legal because most politicians enguage in the use of alcohol and the government reaps huge tax revenues from the sale of it. In many states the only place you buy hard liquor is your state run liquor store. Go figure.......

Alcohol Related Statistics

More than 100,000 U.S. deaths are caused by excessive alcohol consumption each year. Direct and indirect causes of death include drunk driving, cirrhosis of the liver, falls, cancer, and stroke.

At least once a year, the guidelines for low risk drinking are exceeded by an estimated 74% of male drinkers and 72% of female drinkers aged 21 and older.

65% of youth surveyed said that they got the alcohol they drink from family and friends.

Nearly 14 million Americans meet diagnostic criteria for alcohol use disorders.

Youth who drink alcohol are 50 times more likely to use cocaine than those who never drink alcohol.

Among current adult drinkers, more than half say they have a blood relative who is or was an alcoholic or problem drinker.

Across people of all ages, males are four times as likely as females to be heavy drinkers.

More than 18% of Americans experience alcohol abuse or alcohol dependence at some time in their lives.

Traffic crashes are the greatest single cause of death for persons aged 6–33. About 45% of these fatalities are in alcohol-related crashes.

Underage drinking costs the United States more than $58 billion every year — enough to buy every public school student a state-of-the-art computer.

Alcohol is the most commonly used drug among young people.

Problem drinkers average four times as many days in the hospital as nondrinkers — mostly because of drinking-related injuries.

Alcohol kills 6½ times more youth than all other illicit drugs combined.

Concerning the past 30 days, 50% of high school seniors report drinking, with 32% report being drunk at least once.

Marijuana Related Statics

Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States.

The percentage of youth aged 12–17 indicating a great risk of smoking marijuana once a month remained unchanged between 1999 and 2000 (37.2% in 1999 and 37.7% in 2000).

Marijuana contains more than 400 chemicals, including most of the harmful substances found in tobacco smoke. Smoking one marijuana cigarette deposits about four times more tar into the lungs than a filtered tobacco cigarette.

Harvard University researchers report the risk of a heart attack is five times higher than usual in the hour after smoking marijuana.

The risk of using cocaine is estimated to be more than 104 times greater for those who have tried marijuana than for those who have never tried it.

Smoking marijuana can injure or destroy lung tissue. In fact, marijuana smoke contains 50–70% more of some cancer causing chemicals than does tobacco smoke.

Reaction time for motor skills, such as driving, is reduced by 41% after smoking one joint and is reduced 63% after smoking two joints.

There have been over 7,000 published scientific and medical studies documenting the damage that marijuana poses. Not one study has shown marijuana to be safe.

I dont smoke pot or drink alcohol, all I am doing is pointing out how silly your reasonings have been. There are only two reasons to object to dating someone who smokes pot if you are someone who condones the use of alcohol. (this does not pertain to harder drugs)

1. its illegal
2. Its your personal choice not to.

beyond this if your a drinker and you want to play the game and think your better than thou then your ignorant and a hypocrite, neenerneenerneener....... :)

I doubt that anyone on here is totally drug free when we consider all the legal drugs, caffeine and so on. However, for those women who put "must not do drugs" in their "Restrictions" I am likely to pass you by. Such closed mindedness simply means that the woman is too conventional and conservative for me. I am very progressive and have no patience for rigid conformists who trust what the federal government tells them.

Yes I do enjoy marijuana. Did not smoke for about 15 years as I was raising my kids and creating my career. Then I began again about a decade ago. I like it for many reasons. My psychiatrist and chiropractor approve my use so it is medical (even though NC has not yet legalized it like 15 other states.) Marijuana is a natural and versatile plant that is mentioned in the bible and other ancient texts. As a Rastafarian I consider it my sacred right to use this harmless herb.

I am actually pleased with how many women like marijuana but are afraid that "someone" will find out (often their kids.) Sadly, most have no source of this medicinal plant. Most that I have gotten high with have really enjoyed the chance to "smoke again after all these years." It is always less nervous and easier to talk after smoking. Music sounds better and food is awesome. In fact, most of the women who say "must not use drugs" tend to either drink booze and/or smoke tobacco. So that would signify a hypocrite - which is already a "southern belle" art form (along with worrying about what others think.)

The real problem facing society from substance abuse is alcohol. Men beat their wives when drunk - not when high. Drunk drivers lose control - while pot smokers drive carefully to not get caught. Drunk people get angry and sad - pot smokers get happy and hungry. Anyhow I will not date any alcoholics since I have left that shit behind about 27 years ago. They tend to be needy and pitiful. If you wonder about your own drinking than you likely have a problem (like 1 in 4 US drinkers do.)

It should say "Must not do illegal drugs".

Drugs, as long as they are legal, are fine. This includes nicotine, caffine, alcohol, sleeping pills, diet pills, anti-depressents, drugs for "iritable leg syndrome" and "social anxiety disorder", etc, etc (its a LONG list).

I find the whole "Must not do drugs" thing amusing and sad. It points to the brainless hypocrisy that is promoted by the media, government, pharmaceuticals etc when it comes to drugs. Its perfectly ok to get your fix as long as a pharmaceutical is profiting by it.

I wonder how many of the people who will only date somebody who doesn't "do drugs" can't get up in the morning without their coffee, are feeding themselves or their children speed (dexedrine or Ritalin), drink alcohol on a regular basis, have a mini-pharmacy in their medicine cabinet stocked with drugs to counteract their unhealthy lifestyles, are on anti-depressants or mood altering chemicals, or are generally "treating" some ridiculous disorder created by a pharmaceutical company and supported and given a seal of legitimacy by greedy and corrupt politicians?

It makes me wonder how people can be so stupid.

I do not date people who do drugs. I couldn't care less if somebody smokes a bit of pot. I am more concerned about the true druggies. Those who cannot live without a regular intake of chemicals. I don't care if they are legal or not. And the fact that so many fools put so much emphasis on the legal/illegal distinction says a lot about their lack of critical thinking skills.


Man.. I could not have said it better.. although I would like to add this:

Alcohol is legal.. yet hundreds of thousands of people die from alcohol related incidents... yet because the gov is making so much money off of it.. it is swept under the carpet and very much legal... how sad.

Someone above.. way above, said something about pot being very addictive and that it was SOOO much stronger than it was years ago. Not true.. pot is NOT addictive.. this has been proven. Where some varieties of pot MAY be more powerful than they were in the past.. not all. Did you know that pot was a viable crop in the early ages of our country? Did you know that the first president of the US grew pot for the hemp to make robes and other things? Probably not!

sigh... think for yourselves.. instead of letting the MAN think for you!
