After reading the occasional pot should be legalized post and then gravitating to the how people smoke grass it peaked my curiousity. How many pot smokers do we have amongst us? Poll to follow.

I've tried it on seeral occasions. I had two pothead roommates when I was 19/20. Used to hang out with friends that did, and I would try it when I got really drunk. I dunno. Just seems like it's a coming of age thing to do that you would grow out of. Nothing against anyone who does. To each their own. I'm still curious about the pot brownies thing.

I'm still curious about the pot brownies thing.

if time slows down, its just the effects of the weed. you are not dead. no i am not watching the red wings game.

in all seriousness, take about an oz. of pot and allow to simmer in a sauce pan with five sticks of butter for about 30 minutes. strain the pot out of the butter. let the butter set up in the fridge. use butter in normal brownie recipe. i recomend adding peanut butter chips to help mask the taste. its not bad, but different. i highly recommend having absolutely nothing else to do, as you will do nothing at all. you can use the butter in any recipe that calls for butter. i had a buddy that made ganga gulash. that shit was great.

this argument has never had anything to do with facts. you want facts?

FACT: in 1937 harry anslinger told the us gov it caused people to become violent, and incurably insane.

FACT: senator mccarthur sited pacifism as a side effect of pot, so pacifist the commies could roll right in and take over.

FACT: the term marijuana is a made up word. the j is made to sound like an h to associate with minorities. same idea as "it makes black men rape white woman"

FACT: the AMA, the precursor to the FDA, was never consulted prior to the congressional hearing. they had no chance to prepare for the case, and admitted they had done no research, and refused to comment

FACT: nixon promoted it to a class 1 narcotic to lock up political opponents.

I can't express myself at all on weed. All I can do is watch movies, or play video games. Never viewed it as much of a social drug myself. I feel considerably less interactive, and often times feel a loss for words when I'm stoned.

By the way, whatever your personal view of dope may be, it is really presumptuous to think people all use it for the same reason. For some it may be a needed crutch, for others it may be harmless entertainment. Heck, some use it medicinally. You can't fairly characterize all dope-smokers into one psychologically similar group.

Yep. My best friend's mom is crazy as a shithouse rat and has been all her life. She's been prescribed a cocktail of uppers, downers, anti-this and that, for decades. Every time a doctor gets the idea that she should try to shake one or more of them, she just finds a different doctor. She's just as much a junkie as any crackhead in Cabrini Green.

Yep. My best friend's mom is crazy as a shithouse rat and has been all her life. She's been prescribed a cocktail of uppers, downers, anti-this and that, for decades. Every time a doctor gets the idea that she should try to shake one or more of them, she just finds a different doctor. She's just as much a junkie as any crackhead in Cabrini Green.

Yep. She's has a doctor prescribed drug habit. They don't regulate the stuff at all. It's ok though because taxes were paid on it and the doctor said it was safe. :rolleyes:

If it was up to me pot would be legal tomorrow and taxed. But it isn't, and I've got too much to lose if I got busted for something that, quite frankly, I never really cared for anyway. I prefer my highs on the opposite end of the spectrum. Obviously I don't do that anymore, either.

Like I said, same as watching a tv show or reading a good. You can have a drink without getting smashed and becoming someone else.

Again I was too quick to assume what they did for you. I guess I'll always have a biased opinion on the subject because of what happened to a very close family member of mine after a psychiatrist decided she needed a candy flip of medications.

Yeah, it bothers me that some docs hand out pills like candy, but I'm in some SERIOUS pain. My ankle is BLACK all the way around. I have a third degree sprain, and a hairline frac. Fortunately I'm a bartender, so I got some shit better than what he would have given me anyway. Pills are dangerous as hell though. Painkiller narcotics are just as bad, if not worse than Coke or any of that other stuff.

If you can't comfortably express yourself within the confines of your own sober mind, then you are relying on a crutch. Its that simple. You can argue it one way or the other, but to the rest of us, its that simple.

You've obviously been indoctrinated into one of those classes, or facilities that dictates that if you've ever had a drink you're an alcoholic, or if you've smoked a joint, you're a drug addict.

People should really start thinking for themselves, instead of listening to a booming industry whose core concern is their substantial profit margins. Before the advent of rehab, people had a cocktail before dinner, or god forbid, smoked a J in the evening without turning into a drooling monster in the eyes of society. Do some people need to be rehabilitated? Sure. But the majority of folks in rehab are there by court order because they got busted with a nickle bag, or had an open container. (not that thats cool) If YOU can't control yourself, thats YOUR problem.

I used to be a major pot-head but not so much anymore. For some reason I really get a craving for it when its its really cold and snowy outside...dont know why. In my younger days it didnt have this effect on me but now when I do smoke (2-3 times a year) I HAVE to stay home because I get extremely paranoid if Im not.

I don't care one way or the other if people smoke pot, but if you think it's an innocent little pastime you need to read about the brutal war happening in Juarez Mexico (across the border from El Paso). The drug cartel has taken over the city and they have no conscience regarding what it takes to get drugs to you, as long as they get your money. There were 1,500 murders last year in a city about the size of KC, many in broad daylight.

-makes sports better
-makes great Olympians
-makes Super Bowl MVP's
-makes shrooms kick in faster
-makes video games seem real

If the government is so concerned about kicking the economy in the ass, then they should legalize it!

- Farmers/Growers could profit from it. New jobs galore!
- Federal Government could tax it and bring in some income to help supplement all of the ridiculous spending they have already initiated.
- State Governments could tax it to help fund much needed programs. Not to mention all of the money it would save when you consider the amount of resources that are squandered on policing and judicial process.
- Users could start going with local sources instead of funding the Messcan Cartel's.
- Help the environment... Bring back HEMP!

Pot will never be legal. Alcohol would be illegal if our government thought they could get away with it again. We're going the wrong direction with our freedoms at this point in time for weed legalization to be a major issue.

Give it a few decades and it MIGHT. But don't count on it.

As for me, I used to smoke like a fiend. But then it started making me overly agitated and angry. It doesn't chill me out at all, it makes me want to get into fights and hurt people.

IIRC there was a similar problem in many American cities in the 1920's and 1930's, except the drug was alcohol.

Common sense suggests to me we should apply a solution similar to how we ended that problem.

I propose a seperate lane for electric powered golf carts and then make them drive those.

Think of what that'll do. Eliminate green house gases, eliminate road rage incidents (which will eliminate hospital bills and non payers thus reducing medical bills), drive the price of gas down.

I'm not debating whether it should be legalized, it probably should be. My point is that it's causing problems far removed from anyone's living room that are horrific. Torture, beheadings, etc. These thugs are absolutely ruthless because they can reel in American dollars.

The reason this is on the front burner for me is that a friend of mine's wife is from Juarez. I had no idea what was going on until he went there over the Thanksgiving break. He came back saying that gunfire was common in his in-law's neighborhood and they're regular middle class folks. No one leaves their house at night any more. They're prisoners in their own city and stray bullets have killed many innocent people, even in their own homes.

No doubt, it's horrible. And it will remain that way until the profits that drive that trade are removed.

AFAICS, there's only one way to do that. We have plenty of evidence that prohibition doesn't work in the WOD any more than it did in the 20's-30's. :shrug:

Which brings up the point I always mention in these discussions on legalizing pot. There is no way to do a sobriety test that indicates if you are currently stoned so there is no way to say if a person is under the influence while behind the wheel. For this reason alone I do not think we can get this legalized.
