Tee-hee.

I'm only a few years out of college and while there I certainly had a lot of fun. Some of that fun was "legitimate"(partying, programming, being a Mac-head), some was not.

All I'm saying is that I truly appreciate this. My brother has a case for one of the first Macs and we were thinking of using it for something. Never though of this though...

And just to avoid a total lack of morality I'll leave you with this...

Don't do drugs. Not that I think they are inherently evil, but in all seriousness you don't need them.

Ha ha haaa!
Right on, Matthew.

After my fiancée took drugs behind my back and blatently lied to me about it for about two years, I have very little respect for those who do drugs.

I used to think that... untill some of my buddys from Highschool that i used to party with ... just didnt stop partying. Now they are shells of the men they used to be. i cant even have a coversation with them anymore. One in particular would be a great D.A.R.E poster kid. he is just sooooo burnt out. His life is going no ware very very fast... and he only smokes pot

i just remembered something. i used to go to school with this dumb-a$$ kid that smoked tea leaves rolled up in normal A4 paper! do not try anything like that! it must have left him really messed up because he threw a spray can into a fire, and it blew up in his face. well maybe not right in his face, he lived although he got pretty badly burned. :eek:

That's kinda funny/random. Not sure how I feel about that. Anyway, I don't think you can condem these guys for smoking pot. A lot of people smoke pot and nothing happens to them. Its only with too much that its bad. And that goes for everything.

A lot worse things happen with Alcohol then pot, and which is legal? I don't think a little pot every now and then is bad for people. as long as it stays a "now and then thing". And you're all jumping the gun on these guys but if I'm not mistaken, didnt Steve J smoke weed when he was younger? PLease correct me if I'm wrong but I think someone mentioned that in a thread here a little while ago.

Anyway, I dont want to get into a serious debate about drugs cause thats not what this is about. I just was amused at these guys and their iBong and thought I'd pass it along. on to other threads now...

Don't condemn.

Don't condemn those who choose to do pot. In study after study pot has been shown to be safer and less addictive than alcohol or nicotine.

I'm not saying drugs are good--drugs can have bad effects and anyone would be healthier having not done drugs. All I'm saying is that I know a lot of people who are addicted to nicotine (a few of whom have died of cancer), a lot of alcoholics (one of whom died of liver failure) but not that many pot heads. And I've seen alcohol destroy far more relationships and hurt more people then I could ever see from pot. On the scale of danger for all drugs--all of which are bad to one degree or another--pot isn't that bad.

We all have to make our own choices about these things. I don't condemn people who choose to do drugs--no matter what kind they are--because I currently enjoy using a drug: alcohol. I enjoy getting together with my friends at a bar, and I occasionaly drink a little too much. And for anyone to say "I would never use drugs" and then go out and get trashed at the bar would be hypocritical.

As I hinted to in my first post, I am familar with other drugs, though I choose to stay away from them now. Mainly because of their illegality.

If you want to be safe, don't do drugs. I highly recommend staying away from them, but I'll still be your friend and respect you if you choose to do them--I won't condemn you for that choice. But be careful. There are a lot of people who have done bad things for or because of drugs and lost a lot of friends because of it. Drugs effect different people in different ways--thats a big part of why they are so potentially dangerous.

I wasnt condeming any one... I just made the point that its probably not a good idea. I do know some people that do have lives and even futures... but i know some with nothing. I personaly dont care who does what. I was just posting some advice to people... I have seen pop distroy lives. Often people like to say "pots not a real drug" I just wanted to say... it can be.

as for the other drugs like cigarets and booze.. they are bad too.. and probably worse... but I was not holding a beer or smoking a cig when I posted that.

I've found that it's all about the person.

Those who are prone to ruin their lives with substances or excess WILL.

It doesn't matter what they choose........they'll always find something.

If Steve doesn't still have the occasional Bong-ripp, I'm a purple Hamster.:D ;)

$2000 a month on Pot???

...impossible

The BEST herb runs you around $400 an ounce. I don't know ANYONE who smokes more than an ounce or two a month. So 5oz a month is really pushing it...

Anyone who says they smoke $2000 dollars a month is either lying or smoking the rock*

Dude said:

Four-1/4 sacks PER WEEKEND.

Max street is 100.00/Quarter.

4sacks*4weekends*100.00/sack=1600.00 Add Beer and munchies:2000.00

Frightening. For all that one could just keep 3 Kush female clones indoors. I mean come on guys........that's WAY too much volume.

True..... he would have found something. He recently told me that Extacy is GOOD for you and he was going to give it a try. He has used it before.. but not in large every day doses. He is going to die soon

"We're not going through four quarter bags in a weekend -– each –- like we used to," said Agapornis. "We're not into a void like we used to be 10 years ago."


I guess my point is - it's pretty easy to say that this statement was probably exaggerated a little for emphasis. If you smoke pot with any sort of regularity (not saying that it's "cool" if you do...) then you know that two guys can't smoke an ounce a weekend very often. It's just not physically possible to maintain that kind of pace - believe me.

As for how much they paid: I bet they didn't pay retail if they smoked on a daily basis. Herb in Austin is pretty easy to get, and if you're buying an ounce or two a month, then chances are you know your dealer pretty well. You won't be paing retail for long...

(Disclaimer) - Everything in moderation. The best highs are free. The second best cost $4099 without monitor*

It can be done............

If you use 5 or 6 implements and treat it like incense.

Still, I value what little clean air I get in a day.

The real pleasure of being Bonqued off one's ass is not in the smoking but in what you do AFTER. I've never understood binge-smoking pot. It's as stupid as drinking to the pass-out point every time. If I choose to partake it's to shift my perspective.....not to be intoxicated.

Add to that the fact that buying in more than a QO at a time is ASKING to get busted.:rolleyes:

Mischief: Inhale::eek:

Wookie: "Dude...looka that chick's thingies..."

Mischief: Urk...snork....chork.....:eek: choke..hack..cough..gag.

Mischief: "gee thanx"

I'm willing to stand up and condemn

I think what all of you folks (re: jackasses) who are smoking marijuana are forgetting is that IT'S ILLEGAL!

Did you ever stop to think about the people who die solely because YOU are smoking pot? I'm not talking just drug lords, I'm talking policeman, ATF agents, and INNOCENT people caught in the crossfire of the war on drugs. Yes, it does happen, do an internet search and you'll find names of real people that have died. People with kids, brother & sisters, and parents.

And you know what, I hold you responsible for their deaths, as should every law-abiding person in this country (USA, with apologies to other nations). It doesn't matter that you are growing it yourself or getting it from the guy down the street, or buying it off of a dealer. You are creating the demand, and without demand, there would be no supply.

I'm not going to argue the merits of the law, because it is quite debatable that marijuana should be legal. I see both the sides of the issue - BUT IT IS NOT LEGAL. But I want every user who feels it should be legal to ask yourself this - have you ever written your congressperson, or attended a rally, or (intentionally) committed civil disobedience or done ANYTHING to show your support for the legalization of marijuana. I'd be willing to bet a 10gig iPod that the percentage of users that have done anything to show support for legalization is WAY under 1%. So, jackasses, make it legal or quit, I don't care which, I just don't want to hear about how it's not bad for you, BECAUSE IT ISN'T ALL ABOUT YOU, NOW IS IT?

If you spend your whole life living inside the lines....

Who are you?

Citizen tcolling, you have a lot to learn.

Life spent living inside so many imposed boxes and dogmas is a sad life indeed. Think different. If the Vice laws went away and all this stuff (drugs, prostitution, gambling, etc.) was legal the prices would go down and billions of dollars on both sides of the "War On Drugs" would evaporate. Don't be so naive.

Ok, so you are telling me that would be good to get really hi and there is nothing bad in having sex with your little sister?

Or spending my parents money in something that wont contribute in my development as a proffesional or as a productive person in society.

In my country rave were big about 2 years ago and I knew about 5 people that went to reabilitation when in my 26 years I didn't know we have such things in my country.

I know guys that were older than me and today they haven't graduate yet and they spend most of the week surfing with/like the kids.

Kid, get a real life, spend more time in this planet and you will see why drugs should be illegal. They just don't relate you to the real world.

I had the chance to see the indians down in the frontier with Brazil and they have been like that for at list 700 years, no evolution at all because they spend the entire day getting hi.

I had tryed pot, ecxtasis, and alcohol since I was 14 (we do not have drinking age in Venezuela) and I'm sorry from the people who have to depend of that.

I studied in a multimedia school in Orlando, I saw lots of guys doing 3D animation, very strange and cool things, but any of them were capable to get a job because they couldn't fill out a resume or be at time on work.

I see 30+ guys skate boarding living from their parents.

Becarefull with your ****y comments mischief because ther are kids around here that can take the emptiness of your comments seriously.
