As for me,pot,cannabis,and all the other weeds are in the same catagory as the snorting drugs


Wow...see...that's the sentiment that concerns me. All this propaganda and misinformation has turned a golden Lab into a Pitbull.

This is just what the establishment relishes and quite frankly I find it all a bit laughable...I mean pot is the same as stuff you snort??? Come on...grow up!

What people in our western society don't seem to know is that other countries consume cannabis and similar substances like we consume coffee. Not only is it socially acceptable to sit around and chew "khat"...it's encouraged and expected. The days events, politics and every other sort of topic is shared and discussed during this important time...

...and yet we're so civilized that we don't even really like to share public transit???

Come on...seriously. Enough with the Pot is evil bullshit. It's just not true. Ignorance is a MUCH bigger social problem than pot is...ask our Canadian vets in Afghanistan!!!

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 .

Now come on, people...like there's really going to be a "must DO drugs category"...

Yeah right, "INTERVENTION MEETS POF"!...Not to mention spelling and sentence structure of many of these posts, would be seriously compromised...

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

it's really quite simple. using illegal drugs is a character flaw. it demonstrates your refusal to be a normal person and your prediliction for violating laws. regular people aren't interested in having that, therefore, "must not use drugs"

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.

It's this level of ignorance that keeps these forums so entertaining. This thread should have ended so long ago, but how can something this closed-minded be left unopposed?

To me, saying that billions of people you don't know have character flaws really indicate where the real flaws lie.

I personally didn't reply because it's so ridiculous it doesn't deserve a reply. I stopped being shocked by people's ignorance awhile ago, but this thread even surprises me. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

From my understanding, anyone who uses the words "must not do drugs" without any extra info, means "must not do any thing the government calls an illegal drug". That doesn't include coffee or sugar, which are both toxic drugs.


Exactly, I'm not going to risk my job or my morales to date some stinky, fried pothead, methhead, crackhead or anything resembling any of those. I don't want to have conversations about how the pink monkeys are mating with the purple elephants, or how the government has put tracking devices under our fingernails.

And like a few others have said, just because pot is a plant, does not make it any less retarded. Cocaine and heroin both come from plants, and I would treat all with the same disrespect.

"What scares me is all the drinkers of alcohol. The leading cause of death in the world"

I am anti-excessive drinking (own a sober living home). However, I'd like to know the source of this statistic. I searched and found a site http://www.paho.org/English/DD/PIN/whd04_features.htm for 2004 that said in 2001 the world leading cause was traffic accidents - some of which included DUI related accidents, but nowhere near all of them. Now, DUI was listed as the leading cause for young people in Finland ... but breast cancer was for women in Shanghai. Ok, I will stop playing.

Having multiple people around me recently diagnosed with various cancers and diabetes I am sensitized more to the diet related behaviors that are going to (per news hype) result in the next generation having a shorter lifespan than mine has.

I consider antidepressants, MAOI's and tranquilizers to be drugs but I suspect that anyone on this site with a prescription isn't going to put that they "Do Drugs" in their profile.

Caffeine and alcohol are mood altering, addictive drugs. They're just legal.

Cannabis was made illegal in both USA and Canada without medical consultation, much to the surprise of the medical community for whom tincture of cannabis was the second most prescribed drug. The argument used in California to criminalize cannabis was that it made Mexicans into murderous maniacs. This followed on the heels of the decision for law enforcement there to change their standard sidearm weapon from a 32 caliber to a 38 caliber because the smaller shell was insufficient to stop a "cocainized ", the mythological superman created by cocaine using blacks.

The Canadian argument was that cannabis and opium were a plot by the Chinese to enslave western people. Emily Murphy, possibly the first woman judge in Canada, in her book, the Black Candle, described how the yellow menace was going to destroy the good white people with drugs.

Cannabis is illegal due to ignorance and racism. For people to say, "Cannabis is a drug" while their profile indicates they enjoy a good bottle of wine is an indicator of 100 years of entrenched ignorance. The idea that alcohol is the choice of the enlightened and hashish is a vice of the "degenerative races", dates back several hundred years to the height of the British Empire, along with the attitude that India was populated by "bloody wogs".

The Indian Hemp Drugs Commission of 1896, US and Canadian studies in the 1970's and the 2001 Senate commission on illegal drugs all conclude that cannabis use induces no more harm in its users than alcohol. In the 1930's, the Hearst publishing empire, being owners and partners in wood pulp and paper processing, created hundreds of "reefer madness" stories that furthered the idea that cannabis causes madness and death in it's users. This may have been in no small part to crush the hemp paper competition of the day. The media incited belief lives on to this day as flawed studies emerge to indicate that cannabis causes schizophrenia and cancer. This flies in stark contrast to the 5,000 years of recorded cannabis use in Asia.

Saying that you don't date people who break the law is fine, just recognize that laws are made by people and that some are horribly flawed by human weakness.

Marijuana is a drug. I'm not interested in having a relationship with someone who uses *any* sort of drugs. I don't mind be friends with people who use drugs recreationally...but I don't want to be around when the drug use is occurring.

I don't have any contact restrictions, though. I joined POF to meet someone for a relationship, but I'm also happy to make new friends. My requirements for friendship are more lenient than my requirements for people I date.

Alcohol and tobacco are far more dangerous and "bad for you" than marijuana. Nearly 500,000 souls yearly can't be wrong.

Heck, here's one from a drug REHAB center;

Note that even this rehab center doesn't try to pretend that marijuana is dangerous.

See, I'm not a big fan of smokers or social drinkers either (just to set the record straight), BUT if it was the right person, I wouldn't have any qualms about dating them, solely based on either of those two factors. Neither of them would compromise my job or my morals.

Now on the other hand, ILLEGAL drugs would do both. Plus, if you're only having a few drinks or cigs, you aren't fu.cked in the head for life.

yes....pot is a drug. i don't want people who do drugs contacting me because I'm a mom. I refuse to bring someone who uses drugs into my life (and possibly my son's). I've been through that before and learned my lesson the hard way. Drugs are bad mmmk!
