Sometimes by your posts Hostile its hard to believe you dont smoke the reefer.
That is it exactly. It doesn't mean I don't love them. I've just never had a pleasant experience around people in that condition. I've been thrown up on, hit, threatened, insulted, judged, and even beaten. The memories are never good, let's put it that way.
Then when the effects have worn off told "that wasn't me, it was the _______ talking."
Now someone will assure me that when drunk or high they are very pleasant and relaxed and it would never happen if I hung aroud them while they indulge.
I feel it robs people of too much to appreciate how much they feel they can handle it. It's their life, let them live it. I even think the legal drinking age should be 18 not 21. It makes no sense to me that someone can marry, vote, have kids, and go to war, but can't have a drink. So I am hardly a prude.
Just don't assure me how harmless it is or how cool you are because you can "handle it." I won't be the least bit assured or impressed. This isn't my first rodeo.
Solution: Everyone gets intoxicated.
Its all about the Tussin'
It's very true what you say, Hostile. I have a friend that tokes up and drinks, and he will call me, and the convo will go something like this...
HIM: Hey, man, how are you..."
ME: Good, what's up?
15 seconds go by
ME: So what are you doing?
another 15 seconds go by
ME: So, how is everything?
HIM: Oh, pretty good...
another awkward 20 seconds go by
ME: So, what's up?
HIM: Oh, not much...
ME: You need anything, any help with your car, or anything?
HIM: No, not really....
This goes on and on for about two or three minutes without anything getting said, and HE called me? Pretty soon I just end the convo by making some excuse about having to go somewhere and that I will call back later...
Then, sometime, not always, when I say I need to go...then he gets mad at me and starts cussing me out because I don't want to talk to him?
Speak for yourself.
Cigarettes/Alcohol (even with moderation) = much more harmful than pot. Its only taboo because it's been condiitoned into everyone's minds that its a terrible drug. Its a plant with endless medicinal possibilities that can't be regulated by the government because of its ease to cultivate and make individual profit from. Not to mention the DEA makes the majority of its profits from marijuana busts.
I know this thread has lost its direction but marijuana doesn't have the Quincy Carter effect on all people. Lets just not treat it as if its any worse than cigs/alcohol just because the government says so. [/liberal rant]
Nyquil will show up as Alcohol in a breathalizer
I like that and happen to agree with it.
I've only smoked pot by the way.
not suprising i bet it's like 5 or 6 outta the top 10. but why would they say this crap?
Oh that just sucks!
I love how a couple of posters have credited pot smokers with being belligerent.
Now, maybe a pot smoker who has drunk a bunch of beers or hard liquor(legal drugs) gets belligerent but you guys trying to imply that just smoking grass turns people into angry monsters need to get your heads out of the 1930s.
I have been around countless pot heads(me being one of them for a few years long ago) in my 43 years and belligerency isn't a trait you find.
Well these guys have a choice (like it or not) they can continue to get high and risk losing everything they have worked hard for or they can stay clean and try to live a dream in the NFL making big money. I agree weed is not some evil but with so much as stake why risk it? I will say I do think some of these guys have problems with weed because when your constantly getting busted and suspended and still can't stop it then that becomes an issue of addictions. I would say the same thing about alcohol, a guy like Robinson continues to fall off the wagon and has lost a lot because of it and could end up out of the league at the rate he is going. Any substance that starts to take control of your life is a big deal.
When I take Nyquil the only driving I do is a Ferrari Enzo or a Lamboughini Diablo with Monica Barladeanu or Halle Berry in the passenger seat wearing very little. Before you say "in your dreams," let me just say, "exactly." In my dreams.
what it is is a question of judgement. With ALL that MONEY, FAME, etc to be lost- WHY risk it for a joint? THAT is stupid. That is the point.
Now these KIDS probably did a joint or two in college and decided that instead of some "friend" outing them they decided to be up front about it.
I admit that I have smoked marijuana.
Draft me please.
It helps with the 'headaches' I get because of my diabeetus.
