Must not do drugs....?Page 10 of 22    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
No Poppy

" Opium and coke come from plants but they are chemically manufactured. If you just eat a poppy it isn't going to make you high. "

Just in case someone who might be facing any kind of drug testing for any reason reads this and thinks this is true - it isn't. I run a sober home and my ladies do not eat anything with poppyseeds cause they might test dirty if they do.

I don't limit myself to illegal drugs banning. I don't want to attempt a relationship with anyone who is currently on one of the drug****ails the psych wards are so "into" prescribing. Single drugs for physiologically based illnesses like bipolar or schizophrenia I encourage. Body chemistry alignment. It is the mood altering drug****ails I want nothing to do with. One bad experience of such people after another has made me unwilling to take on that negative baggage again. People drugged out on prescriptive drugs can't get healthy any more than the ones on illegal drugs - brains are too fried.

Separate question

"Occasional smoking of 'pot' has no justification being a 'deal breaker'. A separate item would be more appropriate. "

Since it does not for you and it does for me, I'd appreciate having the clarification added so that I can avoid people who do more than drink socially, smokers (pot or otherwise) and could we also have prescriptive mood altering drugs as a check box? When I meet them I can also weed out the ones addicted to energy drinks and other high amounts of caffeine or who have figured out some other way to numb out instead of dealing with life.

I certainly agree that everything I put on or in my body alters my body chemistry and could alter my thinking ability. I'm just elminating the obvious ones in advance.

I have to agree with cnc. Doing drugs is doing drugs, no matter how often. I don't want to be with someone that does drugs and that includes smoking one joint with her friends once a year. That is doing drugs

Yes, I consider cannabis a drug. My restriction is because I'm the flip side of an addict, anyone I get in a relationship who does any kind of drug always turns out to be an addict. Co-dependent, enabler, or what ever they are calling it these days. It's like a magnetic pull. Personally, I don't care if someone wants to take a hit occasionally, I just choose not to have it in my life. I consider alcohol a drug too, if a socially acceptable one, and wouldn't be with someone who was a regular drinker. So in my case, it's for self protection.

Well moushen my screen name is Denver420 and sometimes its better just to be honest about smoking pot and state that in your profile. You wouldnt believe all the dumb girls who dont know what "420" even means, or kind bud for that matter. Theres girls out there that smoke up so get one of those. Drug free girls usually = boring.

Not a fan of it. I consider smoking dope to be doing drugs. If you're into that, that is fine and I won't be judging you - but I don't want to go out with you either.

Sorry.

Good lord! I've been called many things in my life, but never, ever, boring. Just the opposite in fact. Tells me a whole lot about you though.

I believe (and I'm quoting myself, in a prvate email conversation resulting from this thread)
at the federal level, it was the political aspirations of Harry Anslinger (the first director of the Fed'l. Bureau of Narcotics) who enlisted both Hearst & Dupont in enacting fed'l. legislation making pot illegal. It may be of some interest that, at the time, their stance (certainly their motivation & subversiveness, at least) was questioned by the AMA.

Not a myth, simply a matter of State vs. Fed'l. laws, from what I can tell. Although the whole Mexican "thing" has basis in fact, even the first state law was enacted more as a religious reaction to Mormons who brought pot back with them from Mexico.

Just so you know, although I don't view pot smoking as anywhere near as dangerous as other drugs, (cocaine, lsd, etc.) and less so than ingesting alcohol, I am not necessarily in support of its legalization. I simply have a belief that debate is best enjoyed when all involved are educated as to the facts, to the best of their abilities.

I will say, though, to each his own. Of course pot smoking is a valid deal breaker, for those who deem it so! Just as is brown hair, cigarette smoking, or lack of height. Personal preference doesn't need validation.

I personally don't do drugs, but I'd like those who posted that pot is a dangerous drug if they take mood altering drugs such as Prozac? Yes it's legal but it also can be dangerous. I know many who are addicted to pain relief drugs. Those types are druggies too...but they don't see that because they are "prescription". How many do Zanax to "get by"..hmmmmmmmmmmmm

I think many are hypocritical about this issue.

Hypocritical is probably an understatement. My father climbed out of the alcohol bottle and into the Bible... and self-destructively so. Numbed himself totally. Try being raised by someone zoned out on a Bible. Can't leave it to that. I had no real appreciation for anorexia belimia until I tried to live with someone who suffered from that disease. I've met an emotional drama addict that does a lot of damage with it - and is very exhausting to be around. The debters are just frigtening to me. Oh, and then there are the controlaholics.

Personally, I don't bother telling anybody what they should or should not do. I'm sitting here talking myself into not having a piece of leftover holloween candy this late. No stone throwing from here. However, if the issue is identifying deal breakers then how long a list of "unacceptables" do we want to have to go through in finding a mate?

cNk; I think you mean, "any" pot smoker & I go along with you on the rest.

Where I see an issue is that a pot smoker appears to be seen as some kind of brain dead, back-alley, wacko, mentally disturbed, freak.

Well, that's a very small percentage. Similar to any other abused chemical. That's exactly what they all are. Used by most & abused by few.

What scares me is all the drinkers of alcohol. The leading cause of death in the world, yet it is 'okay' to drink a poison that kills your liver from releasing masses of chemicals to keep it from killing you. Ever wonder why there are 'hangovers'? The after effects of the poison. Interesting that drinking is so popular with what you would consider 'normal' people. They're obviously mentally deranged to drink poison. If not for 1 enzyme from your liver, and alcohol being 1 molecule from being fully fatal, you folk would all be dead.
Then the incredibly less harmful cannabis will be smoked while the graves are dug for people that are actually commiting low grade suicide, same as tobacco users. Doesn't anyone pay attention to all the, 'Don't drink & drive, and many, many more Warnings! The plain stupidity of boozers is rather amusing to someone who's had a toke or three. One drink per hour is purported as the 'safe limt'. You could smoke a small pile of pot and still shake it of with an adrenaline rush. Not so with booze. Until your liver can stop all the poisoning, your not much good for anythng. Don't forget losing control of your emotions. Not so with pot.
Scary thought for you: If you take a taxi home from being out drinking, the odds are very high that your driver is high.
Ya, I know I'm ranting like crazy, however, it's all the silly notions people have about different things that bothers me. I won't go out with a 'chronic, or 'addicted' person, no matter what it is. That includes, uninformed, narrow-minded, predjudicial, and judgemental women. <
Notice that not one 'smoker' on this thread has been defensive, or aggressive?
Can the same be said for the rest?

Everthing in moderation, including moderation.

I can see both sides of the argument. When I used to very occasionally smoke pot though, I gotta say it was upsetting when people who were borderline alcoholics would judge me. I knew people who smoked a pack a day, and drank almost every day would judge me. These people were addicted to their drugs, while mine wasn't even a habit. It's just funny to me how people justify one thing, and frown on another. Unless you are living a completely clean lifestyle, you shouldn't be so quick to judge others. And if you are living a completely clean lifestyle, I can see why you'd want someone doing the same.

As for me,pot,cannabis,and all the other weeds are in the same catagory as the snorting drugs.I was once told that i was a hard **stard,when it comes to my stance on drugs and,if i am,i'm proud of it.All too often,i'm told that i should understand a person's problems and why they are using drugs.Well,they need to wake up to the fact that,everyone has problems at sometime in their lives,but not everyone cops out to drugs.I guess if i was to sum my view up in a nutshell,i would have to put it this way.....

It's your baby,you rock it
It's your heartache,you bought it
You made that bed you're sleeping in
And i'm tired of hearing 'bout it friend
It's your baby,you rock it!!!!!!!

I consider cannabis to be a drug also. I don't use that restriction on my profile, but I will not date someone that does drugs. It is never worth it, period!

yes, cannabis is a drug, by any definition.

maybe the question should read ‘must not do illegal drugs’

In my case it has nothing to do with whether drugs are legal or not. If you want to sove the "drug problem", legalize drugs. If you take the profit motive away, you eliminate a lot of crime, as well as crooked politicians, cops and judges on the take.

I prefer to have people in my life that are not chemically enhanced. People who get joy out of life, not a chemical.

I also have to wonder just how honest people really are and would willingly certify that they do drugs.

I consider marijuana a drug. If you're taking it to get high, rather than medicinally, you're no better than anyone drinking alcohol to excess. I don't want a drunk in my life either. I was raised by one and married to one at one point in my life. I've paid my dues on that score.

What do people considering drinking to excess though? A lot of people drink 2-3 beers at night or 2-3 glasses of wine. They aren't drunk, but it does affect them. I personally consider it excessive. They do it 'to relax'. I don't consider that any different then people who smoke a small amount of weed at night to do the same thing. IMO it's hypocritical to think it is any different.

I really don't want anyone who abuses any substance. But from my past experiences I am 100 times more worried about people who abuse alcohol, or even people that feel they need to drink daily. I have had some nightmare situations.

There was a time when alcohol was illegal - then came prohibition.... and it became legal ...personally i think alcohol is one of the worst drugs around.
Personally i think the profile question is inappropriate and should not appear on the form. It is just propaganda designed to sensationalise and marginalise society.

Yes cannabis is a drug maybe not a bad as some of the bigger ones like crack or meth but for me I don't need any of that stuff in my life,for some people its minor and stays that way but for others it leads to more. I don't want to be out somewhere and get stopped by police and have any issues, unless you grow it yourself the dealer sells the hard stuff and I don't need them around me . I could go into more details but I'm talking from experience where a ex did drug s I didn't but had to deal with crap that went with it .

It seems to be a drug use / drug abuse issue. I understand that some people believe any form or level of drug use is completely unnacceptable unless the "government" says its ok.... be a good responsible citizen and go to work (blissfully) unaware of your master/slave relationship, work hard till lunchtime on a Wednesday until you actually start earning money for yourself, then go home and watch deal or no deal or Big Brother etc cook dinner using lifeless processed foodstuffs, and talk about the weather :P
Throw out your music collection for the music industry is rife with drug use, write off the fashion, sports, arts and entertainment industry too
The biggest drug factory is your brain and if dont want to interfere with it at all, then give up your alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, your antidepressants and your viagra lol
Life is sweet :D

i dont understand why we are even asked that question. what idiot is going to say yes? when asked you do something illegal, the smartest thing to do is lie. i think that should be ommited. if they are a druggie you will more than likely find out quickly when or if you meet. its a chance you take, along with everything else.
