    Just curious what people think of pot on here. Not in a legal sense either.

    you mean marijuana, right? or is that typo intended to prevent the "bad words" police deleting the thread?

    never tried it. one thing i approve of it is, it doesn't make you aggressive (i was told), unlike alcohol.

    I think it should be legal. However, it does make me stupid and unmotivated. I hate it. LSD and shrooms though...;)

    On the other hand, some people find it inspiring. It does different things to different people. I don't think it's anyone's right to make a plant illegal.

    Actually glocke, I'm surprised you started this thread. I would think you'd hate anything drug-related.

    Regardless- I think most drugs are something people grow out of. You learn from the experience and move on. Some people get trapped by them too, no doubt.

    I used to smoke it and have hash brownies but like most things like that continual use bored me, to the point that one day I just stopped and I've never had it again.
    Same happened with cigarettes and drinking alcohol with the aim to get a smashed as possible*...




    * I still drink booze but nowhere near the quantity and frequency I used to.


    But I don't think it should be illegal. It's way less damaging than alcohol.

    hahah...nothing is as it appears Lee..

    I wouldnt go so far as to say I "love" drugs, but I do think they have their place, and I do think they are a useful tool, but Ive come to realize that with everything, moderation is key...

    I've smoked more than my share (and probably more than your share) of ganja in the past, only the sticky, stinky kind though. I like shrooms also. Although these days I really prefer to take it easy on my brain and am trying to stay as sober and clear headed as possible.

    Im a musician, and play in a couple of bands that are of the jam band genre, so I get exposed to alot. Some of what I see concerns me and has helped push me towards my recent pursuit of 100% sobriety.

    I was in a stoner rock band for a few years after I stopped smoking. The others smoked more than enough. I always said I was in a passive stoner rock band.

    I think it's fantastic, but not for everyone.

    Never tried it, and never will. It's changed too many people I know for the worse.

    You need another option for "use to smoke, just got tired of it"

    I use to smoke it a lot. Then about six years ago a lost interest and have not smoked since. The cannabis club was great.

    I don't know where the argument of using it as a painkiller comes from. I remember smashing my finger pretty bad. So I tried using it as a painkiller and it just made it much worst. Not only was it still painful but all I could think of after smoking was the throbbing pain

    Some people need to get out lol.. I used to smoke it for both medical and recreational purposes. I was thinking about having a few every now and again but my job puts me on the right side of the law. Hmm what to do? :(

    This was my only option, as I don't smoke, and the 3 puffs of a cigarette I took as a 12-year-old left a lasting "impression".

    Did try a brownie once, but the "cook" couldn't boil water successfully. All seeds and stems. Disgusting.

    I don't know if it should be legalized but it should be decriminalized, meaning if you're caught with it they fine you and take it from you and thats it.

    The police would never go for legalization because you can't easily test it like blood alcohol content.

    Where's the option for "tried it a few times, didn't like it"? I don't see where it gets fun to sit about doing bugger all not being arsed to go find something interesting to do.

    Then again the majority of recreational drugs I've tried don't work as advertised, I probably have odd brain chemistry or something.

    I used to sing in punk bands back in the 80's/early 90's, so I know what you mean. People get carried away with things. I grew out of that stuff a long time ago. Nothing negative happened, I just didn't feel the desire to do it any longer. It was fun while it lasted, though.
