    I'd say, "cool, that's how you feel about it. Welcome to America where you are allowed to feel whatever you wish about it. Please don't push it onto me."

    Not saying you did.

    I know people who smoke weed regularly.

    I know people who drink regularly.

    If by my answers you somehow see me as a prude who preaches to them about the evils of their ways, then you've badly missed the boat. My sermon is real simple, I won't be around where that is going on. I have family members who want nothing to do with me because I will leave if they want to toke up. If I could care less about it, I would. I can't figure out how to care any less. If I never see them again as long as I live...oh well.

    I used to work with a guy named James. He was a heroine user and wasn't ashamed at all to tell anyone about it. He believed that I should try heroine, because he liked it. He believed no one ever gets addicted to drugs, because he wasn't addicted to them. But ask him to prove it by quitting and he'd say, "why should I quit something I enjoy just to prove a point?" Don't ya just love double talk? He believed that no one ever commits a violent crime over drugs, because he never had.

    His exact words, "anyone can get drugs without violent means, you don't even have to buy them, just find someone willing to share, and when you have them share back. Drugs teach you about sharing and compassion." No joke.

    I take issue with that kind of thinking. The "I do it or have done it, therefore it isn't bad for you at all" philosophies. They are self serving, narrow minded BS that isn't worth the time of day to ignore.

    1. The fines and possible jail time connected to its possession
    2. the harm it can have on your lungs
    3. It makes you play the piano really fast with a devilish look on your face.

    Let's see, alcohol or the Assasin of youth? I believe alcohol is far, far more dangerous.

    Finally you've hit a point that no sane person could dispute.

    Well we don't have the medical MJ around these here parts of the woods like you crazy hippies from caleefornIA do. (exaggerated hillbilly voice).

    On a serious note. Sure it is still around but I don't think it is as rampant as it was at one time.

    Have not heard the helicopters going over looking for crops in the last year or two.

    Have not heard of a LARGE JM bust in a long time and like I said we don't have the medical MJ situation.

    Here is something that is a pain with all of this.

    Want to go to the drug store or any store and get some sinus medication (sudafed) and you have to fill out a stinking form and everything now because of these idiotic meth heads.:banghead: :mad:

    You know, the other day, I went to the drug store to take back some electronic thing that was broken -- they told me I had to exchange it -- fine -- no problem. So I grab a some gin and whiskey to restock the liquor cabinet. They told me that they don't like to do exchanges for alcohol. So I said "ok, can I get $50 of sudafed instead?" -- They let me have the booze.

    You sound like Sgt. Stedenko.

    Lighten up. The days of life prison terms for a marijuana cigarette are past. Yes, only dopes smoke dope, but the realities are that your neighbors, your bosses, your schoolmates your kids (not yours, yours but in a general sense), your Johnny Laws and your attorneys and plumbers do it on a daily basis.
    Again, I am not saying it should be OK. It's not. Jail terms, fines and harm to your lungs and perhaps your drive to succeed can suffer.
    But the reality is it is everywhere. The startling thing is that perhaps only 50% of college players do it as opposed to 70% of male college students. (I read that in a medical journal.):D
    but, seriously, dude. Don't let a natural substance come between you and family members. In the long run, they are stilll loved ones, no matter how wrongheaded they may be. . . . Now you got me all choked up . . . .:cry2:

    I could not remember if there was a name of the band but I do remember Cheech being Alice Bowie. (I always figured it was a combo from cooper and bowie).

    The reason I believe weed use has gone down recently (and I think it has) is twofold.

    1. More businesses drug test and weed stays in your system so long that it's pretty easy to detect. It seems like soon, if you want any kind of decent job, you're going to have to be drug-tested.

    2. Health concerns. Bad habit substances (cigarettes, alcohol, etc) sales are down because of health concerns, so it stands to reason that fewer people are smoking pot (especially the occasional-type users.)
