For that matter, what does "often" mean? Monthly? Weekly? Daily? Hourly?

(I suspect whoever created the question was on drugs)

Not everyone hates cops, I'd be overjoyed to be asked out by an officer. I'm in El Cajon (East Co. San Diego).

Too many haters, I doubt most of them are cops or have any idea what they go through daily. Now watch, somebody will call me a badge bunny next because I dared to take a stand.

I havent seen anyone online openly admit to using street drugs, but I know that a good number of POFers are guilty. This is why you should be aware of what kind of person you become interested in.

If you work for a company that does random drug testing, its no fun to even THINK about doing drugs.
Pot stays in your body for up to 90 days, they take a snip of your hair, analyze it, and you're fired.
It took the fun right out of getting a buzz.

i did when i was young and impressionable .now that i am older and wiser and not easily swayed one way or the other ,i look back and think what an idiot i was .no excuses ,no regrets , my life then led me where i am today and im glad it did .there are a few who admit it on their pages ,unless i really like what they have to say in their profile ,i just go right past them ,i dont really want to reintroduce that element into my life ,again .kind of hard for me to say that since i try to be non-judgmental.also im in the field where i help those with addictions .
just so you know ,because peoplke in the profession youve chosen dont hear it enough ,
THANK YOU .for the work you do ,the crazy hours ,the crazy ,sick people you deal with day to day ,the lives you save and the life you give .it takes a special person to do what you do .

Here's the thing: if you like the occasional marijuana, YOU CANNOT ADMIT IT PUBLICLY IN A WEBSITE LIKE THIS. You never know what kind of future employer will stumble upon POF and see it. So of course almost everyone is going to say no, no matter if you do it or not.

In this day and age with boomers getting older there is a large recreational drug crowd out there. Coffee is a drug, beer is a drug, wine is a drug. Most of your new perscription drugs are highly toxic poisons with benneficial side effects.

That's a good point, whether folks should mention when they're on "meds", including things like pain pills and anti-depressants, which definitely affect your personality.

But even if they're "legal", sometimes people do have weird "associations", maybe from past experiences with others, and then there's the whole matter of the different kind of "values" and "culture" associated with 'em (depending on the 'drug'). So yeah, the subject should be addressed, preferably sooner rather than later. Personally am fine with "experimentation" and "recreational" whatever, but folks with lurking "dependency" issues, not so much.

I have to go with the >civilized culture< ive know to many drunks and never some one so stoned they act more a fool then a drunk. Im from the old school on drugs to me pots ok but the harder one will kill u and booze will get u there just as fast. i drink ber but not to get drunk i smoke pot and not just for the high.. know that sounds crap but u can have a beer with food to enjoy the tast mix or just to relax a bit and a little buzz doesnt hurt if ur not a jerk. i indulge in hurb and have for most my life hasnt screwed me up just keeps my mind in line grew up with A.D.D. had me on pill at the good age of 8 and it sucked but with pot its easyer to keep ur mind on one thing at a time and finish what ur doing with out turning a mole hill into a mountain

I drink and smoked pot once in college and hated it so I don't have to admit to anything.

I would not date a drug user. I get drug tested and it's just not what I want in my life, including pot.

Right here sir!
Medical Cannabis Patient! Never broke a law in my life (except for that red light) and never will. I abide by California law and am proud that my state is one of the few where I can admit to cannabis use with out fear of a knock on my door.

I use cannabis to treat chronic pain that pops up every once in a while as opposed to narcotics which are 1)hard to get 2)horrible for your body. As a health nut I would rather used a plant to ease pain rather than pills someone made in a lab.

I admit to drug use on my profile as I feel it would be dishonest of me to represent myself as a non-user but POF does not allow one to distinguish in between legal use and illegal abuse.

No sir. The hemlock plant is poisonous. I have no reason to ingest the hemlock plant. This is a logical fallacy called a red herring. Applying hemlock to this situation makes no sense.


I suggest you give this a good read. It is
OPINION AND RECOMMENDED RULING, FINDINGS OF
FACT, CONCLUSIONS OF LAW AND DECISION OF
Administrative LAW JUDGE.
FRANCIS L. YOUNG, Administrative Law Judge
DATED: SEP 6 1988
cannabis-science.com/content/DEA%20Ruling%20Judge%20Young.pdf

In case you do not feel like reading it I present you with my favorite passage:
“At present it is estimated that marijuana’s LD-50 is around1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response."

Coffe eis a drug,

No coffee is not a drug as it does not impair your judgement. You can drive and operate heavy machinery.

It's only since"civilized" culture came to be that drugs of mind altering abilities have diminished. All cultures had some form of this.

I don't know what "civilized culture" means. Please name some uncivilized cultures which use "mind-altering drugs"
If you are referring to the natives of North and South America for example (peyote etc.), those drugs were considered sacred and used exclusively in religious contexts. People did not sit around getting high for the fun of it.
In some South American countries people chew coca leaves which when processed and distilled eventually produce cocaine but in leaf form are not much stronger than tobacco. (I've tried it-nasty) they use it as an appetitite suppressant and it helps them work longer because it produces a slight euphoria. Although in the 16th century (i.e. historically) these leaves were also sacred and used in religious rites.
Modern pharmacuticals came originally from plants. If you think "herbal" medicines are safer or more "natural" than plant based drugs, make an appointment with a gastroentologist and ask him how many people with liver failure he's treated from taking "herbs" Also can cause kidney failure.
If you want to smoke up go right ahead but don't pretend that you're not different than any other recreational drug user.
If you're able to have spiritual experiences without drugs then I applaud you. I've had a few myself and they blow drugs out of the water.

When I hear of people using pot for pain, I think bedridden, barely moving, using canes, walkers, or wheel chairs. Not people out hiking, dancing, etc. So to me, it's recreational.

And before you say I have no idea about pain, I have a chronic illness with pain 24/7 but I've learned to get off the legal prescriptions and do Tai Chi, better eating habits, and now that I'm taking Vitamin D I rarely take a Tylenol.

As for the OP being a cop - thank you! I like having protection. I know there are a few that let it go to their heads but not all are that way.

Pot impairs the reaction time so if you want to fill your lungs up, go for it just don't be driving.

For some people - depending on their personality traits - pot can lead to harder drugs, loss of job, family, more. My 1st ex started smoking it with his brother when we were married a awhile. Eventually went to meth. He started beating me and I left. His excuse was it hid his pain.

As for the button for drug use. Pretty sure it means illegal drugs and being hooked on pain meds can qualify since no one doctor will over fill a prescription so many who are hooked hit up several doctors to get their "fix". Just saying.....
