can non-pot smokers handle pot smokers?Page 1 of 77    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
Is this a big hassle for women? I guess there's the argument that it can enhance or detract from the relationship, but that can go either way. I guess I don't see it as a 'bad' thing...

To each thier own as long as it does not control thier lives somewhat, I have dated many that have been pot smokers.
All I ask is not around my son, is all.
Myself, I turn totally body stone if I smoke, so I don't bother!!
But do not hold it against others if they want to have a joint once in a while.

it its a regular habit then the answer would be hell-no!! :) It would just piss me off watching her waste her brain cells away like that. If she smoked up on occasion , then Id take it a sign of good will power and I doubt it would bother me much.

I've seen relationships work when there was only one pot smoker, depends on the people involved i guess. I don't smoke pot and wouldn't date a woman who does.

I wouldn't sink to chatting with a pot smoker, let alone date them - so I'd have to say 'no', for me.

Depends, are we talking about lighting a doobie at the end of the day or smoking a bowl?

Or are we talking about flaming up on the bong every 2 hours?

I don't smoke it, don't really care for the smell of it but I don't mind if someone partakes of the herb, just don't abuse it.

What bugs the heck out of me is when pot smokers don't have enough guts to at least post the fact that they do drugs, I can deal with pot and I have dated guys that smoked it, I personally have never tried it and i can't stand the smell of it, but I would date someone that did smoke it, but not if they lied about it in the begining.

Pot smokers crack me up with all the reasons they have to justify it. I will never knowingly date someone who currently smokes pot, its immature, and stupid, lowers sperm count, and leads to memory loss, and once again is just plain stupid. I would even hesitate to date someone who has smoked pot in there life time. But thats difficult to do haha. I am very antismoking, but I would rather date a cigarette smoker than a pot head. I mean come on men in your 30's smoking pot GROW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been learning a lot in exploring the dating circle, but something has startled me.

How is it that I have gone nearly 30 years through life knowing that people are really judgmental creatures and the idea escaped my mind when considering who may or may not be interested in me??? LMAO.

My opinion on just about everything is, I have to know more before passing judgment. I have never been able to base any opinion on even my own experiences, let alone on popular opinion.

I'm a huge advocate for reforming current marijuana laws in America. I'm not a "pot head" either. LOL. I have smoked and I quit because, as some would say, I grew up. LOL. I realized I had too much to lose (a young family) considering the current (hypocritical) state of the laws concerning marijuana.

I don't miss it. I'd probably hardly ever touch the stuff if it were to become legal. Still, I don't think marijuana makes the @sshole. The @sshole is what makes marijuana a bad thing.

As for dating. I have dated women that were pot smokers. Just as any other thing in life, some of them were genuinely nice ladies and quality company and others were your stereotypical burnout.

I'll take the quality company any day. Even if she does partake in herbal pleasures from time to time.

Dime12804,,,,to be honest I have never met anyone that smoked pot to be an ***hole really just because they smoked it,,,,they usually were before they smoked it!!! So I agree with you!!

I have found most people that do smoke pot are pretty mellow people.

Now,,,here is a choice for some people,,,,,,,

Door number #1
A room full of people that just smoked a joint,,very calm,,just chillin(no,,they did not smoke it there,,,so no smell)

Door #2
A room full of drunk people,,,(no ,,they did not drink in that room either)

Majoirty of times,,,trouble is caused more because of alcohol more than a simple joint,,,just look at the bars/clubs!!!

We are talking just a plain joint,,nothing more than that,,no coke,,no E,,no crack,,no meth,,no herion,,nothing more than a joint,,

Which door would you choose???
Which room will have less fights,,arguments,,hassle??

I would beleive door #1!!!

I don't smoke it either!!

You mean as opposed as to "wasting" brain cells via the use of alcohol?
Alcohol, which at one point in time was PROHIBITED just like the "illicit" substances we have today?

Sorry but some (probably most) of society is comprised of nothing but sheep, FOLLOWERS amongst the herd. Followers that are brain washed by Governments and Media.

I myself don't really smoke anymore. I used to, however, so I know what it's like and what the effects are. I don't condone it nor am I an advocate for drug use. I am neutral. It's like any other substance you put into your body. It can either have a positive or a negative effect.
All I can say is that people shouldn't knock something unless they have first hand experience of what is entailed.

Don't believe everything you read and/or hear.
How many people do you know of PERSONALLY or have read about that have killed themselves and/or others through vehicular homicide due to being under the influence of Marijuana as opposed drunk drivers? Or people beating their husbands, wives and/or kids after being intoxicated through Marijuana as opposed to the physical violence undergone after the use of alcohol. People dying from alcohol poisioning? Then there's the matter or liver problems/failure and other health issues.

YET ALCOHOL USE (EVEN IF ONLY MODERATE - BTW: WHO DETERMINES WHAT IS MODERATE AND WHAT IS NOT?) IS ACCEPTED THROUGHOUT SOCIETY!

Those in western civillisation are VERY closed and narrow-minded in regards to alot of things. Whether it be sex, drugs, race, colour, creed, religion, etc.
It is because of this mindset that we here in North America have the problems that now plague us.
Do you know in Iceland the police officers do not carry guns? Their crime rate is so low that it's not necessisary! Mothers usually go shopping together and leave their children UNATTENDED in their strollers outside for a little while as (they say the exposure to the cold fresh air is healthy) they go into the store to do their shopping. (try doing this in North America and see if you don't get jailed for child endangerment much less be lucky to come out and find your child still there!). That's the kind of f*cked up society we live in.
It's also not unusual to have sex on the first date for them. Meanwhile here we are so hung up on the issue of sex, something that was meant to be enjoyable (for BOTH parties), healing, natural, an expression of intimacy toward one another, AND, our gift to be able to procreate.

The point I am trying to make is to show the difference amongst those of us throughout humanity and the difference a little bit of liberation and open-mindedness can make. I believe mankind would lead a MUCH more enjoyable life/lifestyle if it they could learn to be a little more accepting and willing to expand their hoizons and leave that comfort zone every now and then to venture off a little bit.

I've always been a very deep and intellectual individual. The use of such substances such as Marijuana just allowed me to tap into my inner-most thoughts. It allowed me the ability to express myself much more fluently and articulately. Enabled me to tap into a part of my subconscious that I was never truly able to reach under normal circumstances.

A little bit of willingness and open-mindedness, to and from one another and what's out there could prove a great a great deal satisfactory!
Nothing ventured nothing gained as the saying goes.


** IM GOING TO END THIS COMMENTARY WITH SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT. A WRITING BY A FRIEND OF MINE.

***************************************************************************
"Why use drugs?

For the same reason there is Alchemy. The same reason we have gods. They raise us above our attachments and remove our emotional bounds to show us a different point of view. They teach us of higher worlds, and give us a glimpse of our own from a higher point of view. They cause us to understand our motivations and circumscribe our desires. They motivate us to create holy (great) monuments, inspire teachings of greatness, and have also led to our present development.

The question is not why use drugs, but why refuse?"

SINK?

Is that to say that you think as a human being you are above any other due to your actions (or lack thereof)?

Knowledge and intellect are what truly distinguishes us from one another. Anyone can perform any actions, good or bad. Not everyone is capable of reaching a higher elevation or state of mind. Not everyone is capable of depth or intelligence or true foresight.

The IGNORANCE from your aforementioned statement just identified your dulled frame of mind and arrogance.

lmao.why do people think it kills brain cells? brain washed in schools i guess?..lol..such a old myth...i dont even smoke weed..but i know some people who do..but alcohall..prozak...zoloft..those drugs are legal and have alot worse long term effects then weed..only thing dif is weed is illegal..it has never been linked to cancer..and most of it is propoganda...so many myths floating around as gods truth about it...it has so many uses for people hurting and suffering..or just having a bad run at life...alcohal how ever does cause brain damage!! but its legal..plain silly


Two new scientific studies have failed to find evidence
of brain damage in monkeys exposed to marijuana, undercutting
claims that marijuana causes brain damage in humans.
The studies were conducted by two independent
research groups. The first, conducted by Dr. William Slikker,
Jr. and others at the National Center for Toxicological Research
in Arkansas examined some 64 rhesus monkeys, half of which
were exposed to daily or weekly doses of marijuana smoke for
a year. The other, by Gordon T. Pryor and Charles Rebert at SRI
International in Menlo Park, California, which is still
unpublished, looked at over 30 rhesus monkeys that had inhaled
marijuana one to three times a day over periods of 6 to 12
months. Neither study found evidence of structural or
neurochemical changes in the brains of the monkeys when
examined a few months after cessation of smoking.

Responding," Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics

2) POT FOUND NOT TO CAUSE FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME

A new study of children born to marijuana-smoking
mothers found no link between marijuana exposure and the
birth defects of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). The new study,
by Dr. Susan J. Astley of the University of Washington,
published in the January, 1992 issue of Pediatrics,
contradicted a 1982 study by Dr. Ralph Hingson, in which
prenatal exposure to marijuana was found to increase the risk
of FAS.
Hingson's results, which have not been replicated, have
been questioned on various methodological grounds, in
particular the difficulty of controlling for combined drinking
and pot use.
The new study looked for facial deformities
symptomatic of FAS in 40 children whose mothers had smoked
marijuana heavily during pregnancy and 40 controls, It found no
association between marijuana and FAS, but deformities were
observed in children of women who drank 2 ounces of alcohol
per day or took cocaine.

(3) NEW STUDY FINDS POT DOESN'T LOWER TESTOSTERONE

A new study by Dr. Robert Block at the University of
Iowa disputes the commonly held notion that marijuana alters
the level of testosterone and other sex hormones.
The study contradicted a widely publicized 1974 study
by Dr. R.C. Kolodony, which reported decreased testosterone
levels in men who smoked marijuana chronically.
The U. of Iowa study found that chronic marijuana use
had no effect on testosterone, luteinizing hormone, follicle
stimulating hormone, prolactin and cortisol in men or women.
Noting that six other studies had failed to show
lowered testosterone levels in men, Dr. Block concluded: "It
appears that marijuana, even heavy use of the kind that's
typical in the United States, doesn't alter testosterone levels."

Going back to my initial post: Alcohol has been known to be damaging (if not more than Marijuana). Yet the majority of society sees it as acceptable. Why is that? Is it because your government dictates what is acceptable and what is not and you all as sheep (followers) amongst the flock just follow as you are directed?

As for memory loss. You claim to not (nor ever) have smoked Marijuana. Therefore, what is your excuse for memory loss? ENGLISH LIT 101!!!
Something that we ALL learned in elementary school. The difference between THERE, THEIR and THEY'RE, or have you since forgotten?
I think you meant THEIR not THERE. Their is usually adhered to when discussing ownership or speaking of a person (people), whereas THERE is usually used when describing location (ex: he went over there).

You mention stupid as if you claim throne to intelligence yet I don't see one word that expresses intelligence written by you! The words you chose to write with are nothing more than those that could come from a child. (sorry to say)
I have shown myself to be far more articulate than you (and I'm an ex smoker) which by the way is one sign of intelligence. (not trying to "toot my own horn" but am just trying to prove a point". Despite what one may think smokers are not "burn-out", skateboarders with no direction in life and nothing going for them.

DUDE!!! WHERE'S MY CAR?
=P

I don't know about stupid or immaturity as I've had some SERIOUS debates and philosophical discussions made under the influence of friend Mary Jane ;)
Discussions that would most likey baffle your mind and cognitive understanding. Such that would be beyond your level of comprehension.

Excessive alcohol consumption can also lower sperm count btw.

You state, (and I quote) "I would even hesitate to date someone who has smoked pot in there life time." Why is that? Due to the fact that there are people out there that aren't as closed/narrow/simple-minded as yourself? Due to the fact that there are people out there that have the understanding that life is one great learning lesson? Life is about experience and with that experience comes understanding.

No offence but you seem to be the one displaying immaturity with your LOW-level of thinking and one-track mindedness!

ONE LAST NOTE: YOU MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU ARE "ANTI-SMOKING" BUT IF GIVEN THE CHOICE YOU WOULD RATHER DATE A CIGARETTE SMOKER THAN A MARIJUANA SMOKER. WHAT BENEFIT(S) ARE THERE FROM CIGARETTES? N-O-N-E
CIGARETTES HAVE NOT BEEN SHOWN TO DISPLAY ANY MEDICINAL OR HEALING EFFECTS UNLIKE MARIJUANA HAS. MARIJUANA HAS BEEN USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH GLAUCOMA PATIENTS, CANCER PATIENTS, HIV/AIDS PATIENTS ETC.
IT IS QUITE THERAPUTIC.

I run my own business, I have a college degree and guess what - I smoke marijuana, and I have smoked marijuana for several years. I wouldn't say that it makes you less of a person, or that you are a lower class citizen. Perhaps some people are blinded by the idea that marijuana is a gateway drug. You only chose to use hard drugs if you make that decision regardless of the amount of marijuana you might consume.

Little do most realize everything is in your mind. This world is indeed what you make of it. I will be enjoying mine. Perhaps you need to roll a joint and spark one up as well.

I would really like to invite someone who hates so much on people for exploring dsifferent life options so much, to come to my home tell me to my face the trash talk you can spread online.

WOW, I was all ready to comment on this thread but it seems that Raven has said EVERYTHING that I was thinking or felt. Good job Raven. If I said I would never date anyone who drank, or ever took a drink of alcohol in their lives...would this be fair? I don't drink, so in the thinking that I have seen posted on here, that is the thing I should do. Oh wait, I don't like Broccoli, maybe I shouldn't date anyone who eats that either. Sounds childish huh? YES I smoke Marijuana. Not on a regular basis. I have went LONG periods of time without smoking it. It is not an addiction for me. But it is something that I choose to do every once in a while. If someone is going to pass me up because of this...I am SO grateful. I do not want nor have the patience to have someone in my life with such narrow minded views. I want a partner who is open minded, RESEARCHES the FACTS before presenting their version of the TRUTH, and allows a person to be who they are without judgement. It is CLEARLY stated in my profile that I occasionally smoke marijuana, for this purpose. "WEEDS" out the idiots and narrow minded people.

Again, good job RAVEN! Well said!
