Must not do drugs....?Page 1 of 22    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
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.

I put it on my profile, because most women I have met who use drugs were very, very promiscuous, and I don't have much in common with someone with a promiscuous lifestyle.

Opium and cocaine come from plants too. "Natural" doesn't always mean "good for you."


as do alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine, none of which are exactly "good" for you, especially when used in large quantities..

Cannabis is a drug. You use it. You are a druggie. You are weak. You have no self control.


What a judgmental thing to say!!!! Any one who says they are not a hypocrite is lying. We all have our own little hyprocrisies. We all have done something illegal in our lives. Speeding, drinking and driving, etc. I have never smoked anything myself. I have the restriction for a couple of reasons, mainly because I don't wish to be put in a position to be jailed. I have had an open mind on the subject of cannibis, yes it is a drug. Should it be legalized? Probably. I certainly don't want to get going on the legal system. I find I simply don't relate and as long as I have something to lose...why put myself in a position to lose it? I might need that burger flipping job that drug tests.

Most people on this planet are on some type of drug. There is no escape. At one time or another in your lifetime you all did some type of drug and liked it until one day you just quit. Many people on this website smoke weed and yet they lie about it. I smoke weed and don't care if you don't like it. At least I'm being real. Who cares if it's illegal. That's the problem, It needs to be legalized. Potheads don't cause trouble, tweekers and drunks cause the most trouble. Where's the propaganda to fight meth, the biggest epidemic in this country. Leave weed alone

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

Is there really any difference between the pot smoker and the two pot a day coffee consumer, or the pack a day cig. smoker.

Genisis , 1 , 29 .. And GOD said, Behold , Even unto all the green herb bearing seed have I given you all things.


Under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act ( 1996, c. 19 ) ...


INTERPRETATION, 2.(1)


    "traffic" means, in respect of a substance included in any of Schedules I to IV,

    (a) to sell, administer, give, transfer, transport, send or deliver the substance,

    (b) to sell an authorization to obtain the substance, or

    to offer to do anything mentioned in paragraph (a) or (b),

    otherwise than under the authority of the regulations.


Cannabis, its Preparations, Derivatives and similar synthetic Preparations, under SCHEDULE II, Section 1. are Controlled Substances under Canada Law.

Thus if any suggestion, insinuation, inference, or mention is made in your Profile in any Way, Shape and Form, it will be deleted.

Thread search is my friend, but google is my best friend.
Marijuana (grass, pot, weed) is the common name for a crude drug made from the plant Cannabis sativa
So what's the next question.....Do you consider Perscription drugs to be drugs?


yes, a "crude" drug..not like the highly researched, and even more highly- MARKETED and HYPED, "good" "pharmaceutical" , regulatory-approved " prescription Drugs"

like Vioxx, Thalidomide, etc..

the FDA, Health Canada, etc. are pimps for the drug industry..the most highly organized, profitable & financially successful "drug pushers" in our society are the likes of Merck, Abbott Labs, SmithKline, Diageo, Seagram's, RJR, National Tobacco, Folger's, Starbucks, etc., etc.

Dont forget that people from other countries use this site as well. A lot of whats illegal here, is perfectly legal there


and maybe vice versa?

alcohol is a banned substance/drug in many countries..

(particularly in the Middle East..)

also, there are many, many drugs that are "legal with a prescription" (including marijuana, for people that have a medical authorization to use it), steroids, and many other substances, but are "banned, illegal substances", without a prescription..

the main reason for many of these laws is to protect the drug-makers (pharmaceutical suppliers).

If you have a prescription and pay the monopoly-controlled price to them, plus doctor and pharmacist fees, you can use as much as you want..and pay 5-10 X as much as 'black-market' prices..

the Government of Canada actuallyhas grown marijuana and distributed it to certain medically-passed users.


In July, Canada became the first country in the world to start selling government-grown marijuana to seriously ill people, an approach markedly different to that of the United States, where the Supreme Court in 2001 upheld a federal ban on medical marijuana.

The new Canadian regulations meant that some 650 sufferers granted dispensation from criminal laws to use the drug were allowed to buy marijuana grown in a government facility in Flin Flon, Manitoba, or buy a pack of 30 seeds to grow their own.

Must not do drugs. Means ILLEGAL DRUGS. Cannabis is illegal in the U.S.

People use the restriction because they don't feel like dealing with the issues that MOST drug users have. Generaly speaking, people who do drugs have little ambition, are irresponsible, and eventually drag the people around them down.

If it says must not do drugs it means exactly that. They don't want a druggie in their life.

Lets face it, if someone has to toke up on illegal drugs to enjoy life, then pretty much I think you're stupid and you have no place in my existence.

But what if I smoked up before? Yeah, so? most of us have.. so, you did drugs, BFD.. do you still do them? Answer should be pretty simple. If you still can't figure it out, put down the pipe and detox for a few months and read it again.

you will find that you are on an insulin overload and give your brain a roller coaster ride that would be stabilized with slow weaning and a proper diet and the right nutrient supplements that all humans need that we no longer get from our food. Your hormones are way out of balance and you are aging your most valuable possession you own... your brain. Just get in depth about how you work on a cellular level and you will be less likely to ingest something so detrimental to your mind.


don't a lot of people (many, many times more than use cannabis, for example..) do all that with their addictions to sugar and junky, fatty, sugar and refined carbohydrate-laden fast foods, as well?

when you become grossly, morbidly obese like so many of our population, you are also really messing up your endocrine system, your glands, etc.. you start producing all kinds of strange and harmful hormones, your hormone balance gets upset; men often become more 'effeminate' (big man-titties, not just due to the fat, but also the hormones that follow..)

women who become obese often tend to look more 'masculinized'..hair on their upper lips grows wild, etc..

the balance of testosterone to estrogen gets all outof wack for junk-food addicts of both sexes..

what does gobbling aspirin and all the other OTC medications that some people down by the dozens each day, do to your body systems in hte long run? I'm pretty sure it can't be 'beneficial'..

Cigarettes and tobacco is a drug, very addictive, very harmful, should that be also included?

Its a fair non-judgemental question that helps you discriminate against certain people. Its no different really than asking about gender, age, weight, looks, children, ethnicity, alcohol use, tobacco use, etc...

I think it was the tie dyed shirt, lol.

But yeah, pretty much anyone who doesn't know the differences between the hemp that was used in many (admittedly very useful) applications in the past and marijuana (ie the kind you smoke to get buzzed) just really doesn't know their history, botany and so on and usually are just trying to fight a cause they're likely not going to win. its a failed parallel thats just too tiring to go over.

Potheads are losers, simply put. Most are extremely deluded as to its rather dangerous side effects and addictiveness and pretty much deserve what they get. Booze and cigarettes aren't much better, but at least most people accept that they'll mess you up.

For the record: I support the replanting and cultivation of the species of hemp that were useful for cloth, paper, oil, etc. they're useful and really, there's pretty much no THC in them, so sorry stoners... you're not going to be getting high off it. boohoo.

Of course cannabis is a drug. But I'm with the people who cite the misuse of legal drugs. I don't want to date a man who needs to use Viagra. . . it makes them lose what's left of their mind. . .

LMAO ~ were you stoned when you added this thread OP???? Just curious, because I would have to be pretty ripped to ask something so fundamentally silly. Of course it's a drug.


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

I don't do pot-heads. I like those in my life to be reasonably awake/alive/alert when I'm with them. The slowness that accompanies that particular "drug" makes me want to snap my fingers so they will get the words out before I'm older and grayer. Sorry, can't do the MJ smokers. I wouldn't do well with a meth-fiend either, that whole "tweeking" thing makes me nervous.

As a former pot smoker and grower I can honestly say that my life would probably be a lot better if I had never seen the stuff. I am a moderately succesful business owner as well as a home owner, and don't agree that all pot smokers are losers. Anyone who smokes pot regularily and feels that it is not addictive should try quiting. At about 2-3 weeks without I experienced a depression I never want to forget. It was enough to make me never want to see the stuff again. I can honestly say that the 30 years I smoked the s$#@ I was in denial.

Depends on how you use it. An oxycontin addiction in a bad situation can be more expensive and debilitating than any crack habit.

To the OP... someone that doesn't want to take mail from someone that smokes a doob, is basically letting you know in advance that they're too uptight for you in the first place. Count your blessings that you were able to avoid them and move on.

Personally, I find it hilarious when I see a profile that says prospective suitors "Must not do drugs", but under their own profile, has "Smoker? Prefer not to say." That drug kills more people on the planet than any other...

Who says hypocracy can't be fun?

LMAO @

Does anyone really think that a user would give an honest answer to the question?


Believe it or not, yes...I ran across someone that said "yes" to this question. So I wrote him and asked him about it. He was great. Probably stoned when he answered me....LMAO ~ he clearly told me it's his drug of choice and if someone has an issue with that, they'd have an issue with him. I thought the honesty was refreshing.

TossedSalad: You so kill me. Oxycotin turns me into complete freak. Like an ADHD cat on crack. Dear lord, I cleaned hardwood floors for three days with a toothbrush. My husband came home and said, "Ummm ~ I see you've made it to a different room finally." And then I heard a loud SIGH. Guess I don't metabolize it quite as I should. Needless to say ~ it really provided me with some interesting thought patterns, not sure I'd like to repeat the experience, but it did produce some funny stories for a later date.

Craftylady...I sympathize with you on the MS. I know several and it is a hard disease to live with. Anyone who has chronic illnesses fights alone and it is sometimes very lonely. I am also sorry about your ex and the toll that has taken on you.

I do not agree that pot is a gateway drug. Now this is coming from someone who has never tried any drugs. I have known various drug users over the years. Addictive personalities are addictive personalities. Don't blame the drugs. I know of lots of old bikers that only do pot and nothing else. I have known plenty of alcoholics who do as much or more harm as addicts I have heard about. My sister died of alcoholism at the age of 53. My father at the age of 56. My mom lived to the ripe age of 73, died of COPD. She slowed her drinking down after I graduated high school. You can imagine the abuse that went on in my home. Addictive personalities are easy to spot. My sister drank beer for breakfast, tegquila for lunch and whiskey until she passed out. Given an antidepressant, she felt better and drank less. Once she found out it was an antidepressant, she wouldn't take it. Pills were bad. Go figure. I admire someone who is sick and gets help. We ought not to lump every person who takes an antidepressant into a drug addict catagory.

I have no drugs in my profile because I don't wish to be put in a position to be arrested. Because I can't relate to said drugs. And SOME people who say they use a little pot also use other stuff. Give an inch, they want a mile. I learned that when I was a landlord.

Because habitual pot smokers (IMO) lay around lethargic, de-energized, eat too much, sleep too much, and dont do anything creative or proactive in their lives....I can say this because I smoked pot for years as a teenager and yes I DID inhale...and didnt do much else but all of the above...
is not entirely accurate.

A quick translation.

Because habitual pot smokers (IMO) lay around lethargic, de-energized, eat too much, sleep too much, and dont do anything creative or proactive in their lives....
-------------PLUS----------
I can say this because I smoked pot for years as a teenager and yes I DID inhale...and didnt do much else but all of the above...
------------------EQUALS---------------
Because when I was a habitual pot smoker (IMO) I laid around lethargic, de-energized, I ate too much, I slept too much, and didn't do anything creative or proactive in my life.
That's all. Nothing more, nothing less.

1 piece of anecdotal evidence does not equate to a rule.
Of the 6 ideas I've had in my life that made myself and my partners millions of dollars... 3 of them came when I was higher than an F16.

By your logic, that would mean that dope creates millionaires!

Hmm... come to think of it... Got a light?

(seriously, though... my first impression is that you were probably just smoking too much at once. A glass of merlot a day doesn't hurt anybody. 8 glasses of wine a day makes... a cougar! no! no! I meant 8 glasses a day makes an alcoholic!)
