    I agree that smoking pot can be taken to an extreme by some people, but so can drinking beer. The difference is that people who drink beer to an extreme excess cause a lot more car accidents and die of alcohol poisoning much more quickly.
    I agree with all of this. I only mentioned pot because Sim brought it up as some sort of exception.

    I basically agree with Colors' post in terms of a possible reasons why you wouldn't want loved us to be doing drugs.
    That's why I don't eat junk food either.

    No fun = sin? So that's what I've been doing wrong?! *laughs*

    From purely strategic perspective this completly logical approach

    Since if you are investing time and energy into a person and he/she is doing drugs you are probably wasting your time and energy.


    But most people simply care about well-being of others. Even if they don't know them that well.

    Why do we care? Because that's how we were indoctrinated. If we had been educated, we wouldn't have to worry because we would both better understand how to use them and also better understand how to react to people who are overdoing it.

    Well, if you agree with marmalade's post, then I think we're in agreement too.

    Just wanted to say that marijuana is somewhat different because it's so much less potentially harmful than most other substances. It's not physically addictive, it's killed zero people in the history of the world, and most recreational users don't get wrapped up enough in it that their lives are being "controlled", etc.

    It's not impossible for it to cause any negative health effects, of course, but I didn't say that. It just seems that given a risk:reward analysis of marijuana vs. other drugs, it's dramatically safer and less likely to cause any serious health problems.

    And I felt that was worth noting.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    People do die/get murdered from refer in the manufacturing/distribution phase quite often. More reason to legalize it. i personally wouldn't hang out with potheads though. Reason being, there is a large difference between grass smoking and non-grass smoking people. Not in intelligence but in perception of reality. More often than not, a drugy will deny the shit that is going on out there and live in a little world where their next fix is tops on their list. This can include refer and booze users depending on their frequency of use.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    I only care when I feel that it's damaging to them in the long term. Some harder drugs definitely have that capability.

    Drug use introduces the possibility for harm directly or indirectly, even if it's marajuana. You never want the people you care about to suffer harm.

    Really? I smoke almost everyday, and I'm not a 'drugy'. I'm a responsible, tax-paying adult. I've smoked with a lawyer for the state of California, and with an Assistant DA of NYC, among other professionals. I guess they are potheads too, and have a reduced ability to perceive reality.
    Sigh...Here's how adulthood works: you get to do your thing, without hurting others, and others extend the same curtesy to you.

    And it's spelled 'reefer'. (Cute little NT)
