Must not do drugs....?Page 17 of 22    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
Ya weed is a drug but it is a way better drug than the doctors push on you when your sick. Ya those are drugs too. that's why we call it the drug store. Allot of those legal drugs are just as harmful as weed. Ok Ya you got me weed is illegal. So your telling me you have never exceeded the speed limit while driving. You always wear your seat belt, you never J walked ya damn straight we all have. Those are illegal yet everyone still does that. What makes weed worse than those. Oh weed can harm you, well the lack of a seat belt can kill you. Like I already stated the effects of allot of prescription drugs are worse than weed. Also to everyone so against it have you ever tried it. Allot have, allot haven't. In my opinion if you haven't tried it you have no business saying how bad it is. Just go pop your prescription pills. How many people have overdosed because of weed. None well I don't know any anyways, I don't think it is posible. How many have died due to overdose of prescription pills. Well quite a few. Oh and now weed can be classified as a prescription drug does that make it any better. Let me guess if you have a prescription it's fine if you don't well it's not cause it's illegal, give me a break. Like I said everyone breaks the law at some point.

i consider it a drug

the only problem is that some people don't (although it IS legally considered a drug...), so this 'must not do drugs' requirement doesn't work. it seems that the majority of marijuana smokers do not consider their usage to be of a 'drug'.....

Must not do drugs....?
Posted: 2/14/2008 2:56:38 PM
Hell yes pot is a drug!!!! It's the least serious prob, but it's still a drug. I don't have a problem with ppl who smoke it once in a while, but I don't smoke it...haven't done it in years. I've had too much experience with ppl acting like the don't do drugs, just to find out that they really do....and I dont want or need to deal with the problems, irresponsibility and negative consequences that drugs bring. I suggest if you only smoke pot sometimes and dont see it as a problem then email the person your interested in...tell them you smoke it (how often, how much) and let them decide if they want further contact with you. But also say that prob most ppl who have "must not do drugs" on their profile still wont want to date you. Good luck with that!

Sorry, that's just the way it is. Prescription = legal, cannabis or otherwise. If you are taking Valium without a prescription it is illegal, same for cannabis. This isn't about what other laws we may or may not break, it is about doing drugs and what each of us defines as drugs. If your definition of drugs does not fit mine and you do them (regardless of the reason), we aren't a match and we won't go down that road. Just as it is futile for me to persuade you that your particular views on this matter are incorrect, it is just as futile to try and persuade others that your views ARE correct.

The only break I'll give you is that the word 'allot' is spelled 'a lot' in the context you are using it. Bust up one too many there dude?

Cannibis is a drug. Contact restrictions on drug use is a good idea since many people have strong opinions against illegal drugs. The restrictions are a way of immediately filtering out drug use characteristics unlike our own at first glance. I wonder if perscription drug people think of their habit as applicable drug use? I would want to date someone with a similar sobrierty rate to mine. Why would a pot smoker want to date a not potsmoker anyhow?

Must not do drugs...?

Drugs:

First of all Pot, Weed, Cannabis, Hemp - Whatever - is a Weed. It is a Plant that grows in the wild all over this wonderful planet. At best it is an Herb. Pot has PROVEN medical benefits and I for one can give testimony to being a Cancer Survivor because of Pot. No - Pot itself didn't 'cure' my cancer - BUT - (with my doctors knowledge) I smoked a joint of marijuana (not hash or oil - just pot) before and after every chemo treatment. As a result I did not lose any hair, I did not get sick, I was relaxed and had an appetite - THAT was extraordinarily beneficial in healing - not just the cancer but from the toxic chemo treatments.

Seems like a lotta people want to regurgitate a lot of 1980's propoganda and b.s. where this wonderful herb is concerned. Your fear is misplaced and misguided. The ONLY reason you fear pot is because the government (esp the US) is feeding you bul!sh.t .. and why are they doing that? Because # 1 they are too damned arrogant to admit they are wrong, # 2 they've not yet found a way to tax it and # 3 Pharmaceutical companies run the show and they sure as he!! get a lot more out of "you" buying: Percocets, oxycodeines, zoloft, prozac, valium, oh crap the list is endless!

Booze is a drug in liquid form - don't like that? tough its a fact. How many people do You know who've been hit and/or killed by a Drunk driver? How many of you drive drunk? Now compare that to "all" the marijuana induced fatalities and then lets have a real discussion.

By the way - my cancer was 25 years ago. After using the marijuana I did Not turn to harder drugs. I'll tell ya one more thing . that redneck boozer president would probly impress me a whole lot more if he gave a speach after a little puff rather than have in the boooze bag!

I agree with hd - if any of you nasties want to argue this with me in pm - go for it . .. my "block party" is looking for new members! lol
I do NOT consider pot a drug - its an Herb. While I won't date a cigarette smoker because of the direct impact on my health, a pot smoker is harmless and often lots of fun too! We can use the extra stock to weave some new jeans! lol

I really do wish people would speak Honestly, from an Educated viewpoint rather than regurgitating more b.s. - just cuz they said it was so in 1975 doesn't mean they were right!
Preferences:fffffffffffffffffffffffft eeeeeeeeee'er!

^^^^^
Because she supports YOUR point of view...she's "intelligent?"
I smoked weed in the paste.
Quite a bit.
Found it to be occasionally enjoyable and usually so-so as far as effect.
Having said that, I have seen and can see where another person might not want a weedhead as part of their life.

Weed can make you lazy.
Distracted.
Not ambitious.
It's expensive.
And it DOES become at least psychologically addictive to most people.

Oh yeah...and it's currently illegal.

This doesn't say that prescription drugs and alcohol don't do the same.
But they also have the positive aspect of being LEGAL.

If you have to choose between a relationship and using drugs...of any type...then you are showing that you shouldn't BE in a relationship.

the thing that I keep coming back to about Cannibis in particular is it's effect, even in small doses. It has the tendancy to be a perspective changing, or "awareness" catalyst. Think blue pill, red pill in the Matrix...

It's the kind of substance that turns sheep into thinkers...able to at least consider other possibilities. It can be something as simple as viewing yourself in a different light, or finally accepting that war is surely a business with tactics like false flag terrorism in play.

My point is...Pot is feared by corrupt bureaucracies for a reason, but not the reasons the Reagans gave...

Yes that is a drug sir. Call it pot, call it weed, it is a drug. Believe it or not there are people that have to protect their career and families, or is it family and career. Anyway they do not want to risk everything for a person that smokes weed. Do people really still smoke weed? Your making this up?

> what do people consider Drugs?? obviously someone with a daily heroin or coke
> habit is doing 'drugs'

Someone who has a daily dependency on illicit narcotics. I really don't think there is many ways to interpret it.

> but what about people who smoke cannabis? do you consider cannabis a drug?

Yes. I am not into dating potheads (or alcoholics for that matter).

> And if you use this contact restriction, why do you use it?

Probably because I see those with illicit drug dependancies as utter lowlife, and really have no use for them. Period.

I look for women that are going to enhance my life and make me aspire to be something better than I already am. Certainly I do not want to have a relationship with some junkie slag who's primary concern every day is where her next fix is coming from.

I don't want to be a party-buster , but my daughter , my only daughter,being a recreational drug user, died of a drug overdose, at her boyfriends apartment. Why would I want anymore heart ache, in my already aching heart?? I am not into the politics of what is legal or not, or why certain people do drugs, and drink. All i do know is that drugs KILL!! As for me looking for a potential date on this site, that is one of my main requiements... that you do not do drugs. I want to relate to a man, not necessarily to his hallucinations, delusions, or illusions. I can deal with his frailities,I have my own., i don't do too well at the morgue, or at the funeral parlor..... and here i am, a former hippie from the late 60's. Been there too many times already!! To all you users... please, please .......be aware, and careful with your use. - sign me off with a Ph.D, in heart- ache!!

Ok,
pot is offically a drug but it is more of a herb...We live in BC here people, there are more pot smokers in BC than not.
Now I put no to drugs in my profile because I don't take any drugs except RX drugs...I do toke from time to time...that does not make me a pothead tho, it just says I enjoy it.
Pot is no worse that smoking a cig or having a beer. If after work I choose to meet a buddy for a couple beers or a toke or two there really is no difference, its just an after work unwind which all of us enjoy!!
People who equate social toking as hard core drug use or condem us as drug users need to stop being so naive and get into the 21st century!

Pot is a drug that adversely affects the brain.

It also brings mental illness out in people who may not ever become afflicted with it otherwise (google 'marijuana' and 'schizophrenia' together). This is simple scientific fact, and I've watched it happen to someone I cared about.

I also believe when people start smoking it early on it has an effect on emotional maturity- in other words, becoming 'stuck' in perpetual adolescence. Of course those who smoke it don't believe this- but why would they? They aren't exactly capable of comparing the personality they may have had if they never smoked to their present self.

I would never date anyone who smoked pot. Not only due to the reasons above, but potheads really have no idea how irritating they are to others.

orcaanna,,, I'm so sorry for the loss of your loved one..
I raised my children with ALL of the truth about DRUGS.
That included the Drs drugs and the drugs on the streets..
They know that if they ever decide to get high for any reason, smoking pot is the only thing that they should do..
Nothing else is safe!!!!!
None of my children get high.. But they know what drugs are about..
They have seen drunk Bikers and stoned Hippies..
And they have seen the ones that would do anything they could get their hands on...
If everyone would raise their children with open honesty and explain to them what is going on in the world that is full of Kings and Queens that will blind your eyes and steal your dreams..
Then MAYBE, just maybe.. there might be a chance that we would all be able to die before our children...

Yes. Anything for which possession would qualify as a misdemeanor, including illicit use of prescription drugs. And if you have to ask the question, don't even bother sending a note to the profile owner.

I know that certain people, if they are licensed professionals or law enforcement cannot afford to be anywhere near the stuff, as it would jeopardize their career.

To me, "drugs" refers to any form of illegal narcotics, depressants, methamphetamines, hallucinagens, and any other form of illegal drug, including cannabis, whether it be cannabis sativa, hash, or hash oil.

I choose not to become involved with drug users because of two reasons:

1) A drug addict many times will end up stealing to support their habit.

2) I am going into the criminal justice career field, thus it would destroy any chances of myself having a successful career in that field after earning my bachelor's degree in criminal justice in a year. I'm not about to risk my entire future over a woman who decides to smoke some weed and ends up getting caught with myself anywhere nearby.

Drug = any substance i.e. pill, liquid or any other substance that can be injected, sniffed, smoked, etc...- that is abused/alters a person's state of mind, etc..........

I have this restriction because I do NOT use any type of drug - recreational or otherwise. I drink alcohol socially. I do NOT drink every day, have a habit or abuse my body. By the same token, I do NOT want someone in my life that uses ANY type of drug or abuses it.

Yes weed is drugs! If you do it, I don't want anything to do with you.

I hate pot heads more than any kind of substance abuser.
