True, but there's a difference between a pothead and someone who occasionally smokes pot. The great thing about weed is that there is no physical addiction, so there's physical need to smoke it all the time. The people who sit around and smoke pot all day (potheads) because they have nothing better to do wouldn't be out doing anything productive even if they weren't smoking pot. The reason they are potheads is because they are too lazy to do anything else. Some people are just lazy and useless. Unfortunately, a lot of these people also smoke pot and give it a bad rep.

Basically, it's like alcohol in a sense. Fine in moderation, but can be over done. I for one (or... uh... some guy I know... ) smoked nearly every day last semester. Somehow I also managed to work a part-time job (about 30 hours a week) and make all A's, taking 15 hours as a CS major. It wasn't because I was taking some easy BS classes either, just ask SpectorV.

It's all about not being a lazy ****.

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

No, because what would be the point? You end up smelling worse than you do from just smoking. You end up spending money that could be better spent on the car. And you can't be 100% assured that you are smoking something that is untainted.

Smoking pot is just as easy of a decision as just smoking for me...what is the point of it? There isn't one...

Ah the urban mythology of pot, it's not addictive, it's harmless, etc.

BS.

Why do you think potheads are potheads? Cause of pot.

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

ANYTHING that is done to an extreme can become an addiction.

People that drink occaisionally are NOT alcoholics. People that choose to smoke pot occaisionally are NOT potheads.

The gov't is missing out on a hell of pile of tax money.....

Pot is in the same boat alcohol was back during prohibition.....yup, it is illegal, it doesn't matter to people who smoke it.

Just my 2 cents....

No arguement.....

Just wanted to point out that not everyone that smokes pot is a "pothead". Doubt anyone could smoke weed all the time and still be a functioning member of society.

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

Who said everyone who smokes pot is a pothead?

No one.

I said every pothead is one because of pot.

Just like every alcoholic is one because of alcohol.


I haven;t met too make pot smokers that amounted to much, imo, anyway. They have a slacker attitude that I am not sure is caused by pot or the attitude makes them more pot suceptible. Whatever, flipside of the same coin.

well, in college i know about a dozen or so people that havent smoked it at least once. id say about half the people i know do it occasionally. id say about 5-10% do it regulary. i know engineers that do it, law students, med students, etc. however, i know that the people who graduate have to stop because of drug tests.

i honestly think people underestimate how common the usage is with youths. another thing is that kids who did it regulary in high school usually didnt go to college. those who tried it usually do it regulary in college and those who never did it in high school at least try it in college. also, i only know one person who wasnt able to stop smoking.. its not THAT addictive as they make it out to be. gateway drug? yes i can see potential in some cases, but most people are smarter than that.

I think it totaly depends on the person who uses it. The intelligence level, responsibility level, and just their over all personality.

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

You ever wonder why businesses have drug tests?

Think on that why you toke your joint and maybe true enlightenment will hit you.

Let me let you in on a secret, a diploma with no experience is a marginally more useful piece of papar than Charmin. It says you are good at short term memory.

Beyond that it says nothing.

I would not smoke it due to its very very bad for you lol, if others want to partake in it in a responsible way then let them go at it, thinning the population isnt always a bad thing.

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

I figured we would get some of the answers we have here.

Let me ask some of you that are all against the use of Marijuana:

1) Have you ever tried it?

2) Do you drink alcohol?

3) If you drink alcohol how do you make an arguement that alcohol is better than marijuana, when alcohol is responsible for many drunk driving deaths and overdoeses every year?

4) You can not overdose on marijuana

5) Make stereotypical comments is annoying, you are basically saying everyone that drinks alcohol is a alcoholic and loser when you say the same thing about people who smoke marijuana. From my personal experience there are the people that make it their life and are lazy, just like there are people that make alcohol their life and are lazy, and then there are the people that can use it and still be product in society.

It just annoys me when I read some of the comments in this thread.

What does a diploma have to do with this discussion? I can tell you many people that do not have a diploma that have never smoked marijuana once in their life but let the legal drug, alcohol control their life.

Are you suggesting people that use marijuana do not get diplomas?

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

1. No i have never tried it
2. No i dont drink alcohol
3. Does not apply
4. You probably no more about the effects it has than i do, but its kind of hard to believe that you cant get to the point to where it is really bad for you. im not saying you are wrong at all, just makes sense
5. Although i dont smoke it or drink or whatever, i do kind of agree with you. i dont think people should do it, but i dont think that it should be so stereotyped. just because someone does it, does not mean that they are an idiot

I smoked pot and graduated HS w/ a 4.0 and top ten in my class.

I got over a million dollars in scholarships to many military academies and to other universities.

What about you? How did you graduate in your class standings in high school? What did you do after High School?

i said i wouldn't do it if it was legal.

1. yes i have tried it, on several occasions... i did not like the effects.
2. yes i drink
3. i try not to argue on it. main reason i guess is alcohol is legal, pot isn't... but like i said before, i personal do not like it
4. ok
5. n/a

the way i see it, everyone has their own perogitive (spell) haha, i didn't graduate with a 4.0 lol. like i said, it's not for me personally. i know both pot heads and alcoholics, i feel there are many other factors that contribute to that condition, not just substance itself. i also say if your going to make it legal, tax the **** out of it and put that money back into the school systems! and i think it would be funny to go down the store and say "um yes, i need a pack of weed lights in a box"

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. You're making that claim, not I and it always amazes me how the pot lovers want to justify pot smoking by pointing to alcohol abuse. Like the fact that some abuse alcohol should somehow make pot ok is ignorant at best.
4. Your claim, I am sure some dumb**** will find a way to OD on THC.
5. Failure to comprehend is a sign of excessive pot smoking. I suggest you reread what I wrote and tell me where I said ALL pot smokers do this or that. I also suggest you reread what I wrote about diplomas and tell me what I said. And put the doobie down you're killing your brain.

My claim about diplomas was that they aren't anything to get het up about, regardless of your pot usage or lack there of. In the real world experience is more important than a Diploma. A diploma will get you looked at, experience will get you hired.

Whitestang, I'm gonna clear over 70k this year. What are you? I don't do pot, I might have a beer with dinner on occasion and I never went to college. I got my education and experience in the Navy and I didn't have to pay anything back.

Re: Here's an interesting question for you..

making it legal wouldn't do much difference here in cali. people would just smoke it out in the open even more often.

i don't think it serves much of a medicinal value either, and this is coming from a guy that used to use it thinking it would help depression and several other pysical problems i don't need to go into detail about....

a dealer i used to go to on the "other side" of town got shot up about 2 months back. He was maybe 19 or 20 drove a 5.0 and was a pretty cool person. his bro got in trouble with a gang so the gang took it out on my aquaintance and he got shot with an AK-47. 3 in the face and 17 in the chest.

i think the point i'm making is that there's not much of a controlled environment for the stuff. like several things in life it has bad consequences and can lead to other harder drugs or not so wise activities.

You simply can not OD by smoking Marijuana... I am sure if you swallowed enough of it you could... but like you said that would take a dumb****.

You can easily OD on Alcohol.

I don't smoke pot, so nothing to put down here but my glass of weight gainer 2200. That comment was immature for starters.

So tell me why alcohol should be legal and weed shouldn't. Why is my claim "ignorant"? I can justify weed being legal because of alcohol being legal perfectly fine. Tell me WHY THAT IS FLAWED LOGIC

Why should alcohol be legal when 1) You can easily OD on it 2) It has caused far more deaths in traffic accidents than some person being high on marijuana 3) has basically the same effect on a person marijuana does.

Why is it so different? Why can you not see that? Are can you not be wrong? Is that it?

Just because I am for making it illegal does not mean I use it. That is a sterotype.

Prohibition DOES NOT WORK. We are pissing away BILLIONS OF DOLLARS trying to keep this **** off the streets. We are throwing otherwise law abiding citizens in jail just because they want to get "high"

It's ok if someone wants to get ****faced but god forbid they want to get high hell no get the **** out!

Whitestang, I'm gonna clear over 70k this year. What are you? I don't do pot, I might have a beer with dinner on occasion and I never went to college. I got my education and experience in the Navy and I didn't have to pay anything back.
I'm in school. I'm 20. When I graduate, I will clear much more than $70,000 a year. I'll be making that much every six months.

All your talk about 'experience is more important than a diploma' doesn't mean **** to me. No medical school would want someone who could say they have "experience in performing general surgery." So until then, I'm relegated to studying, making good grades, and shadowing when time permits. Until I graduate, and for several years after that, I will be up to my neck in debt, but 5 years from said date of graduation will have me debt-free and up to my neck in money. And that goes for all people in medical school. Pot smokers or not.

^ my dads roomate smoked constantly all throughout college and before that. now the guy runs a hospital. some people can recover better then others. some amount to nothing and die off and others gain a balance and are successful later on in life.
its different for everyone so generalizing doesn't work.

Is that not the same as alcohol?

That is my point that he will not see.

That is exactly why I can compare alcohol and weed.
