Marijuana, do you partake?

    I never have. When I was younger I had numerous opportunities and always chose not to partake. The joint just passed right by me at the table and my friends never pressured me. When I got older I realized I made it this far without ever trying it and I don't feel like I am missing out on anything.

    Weed is much MUCH more positive for me than alcohol., but it also depends on the strain. Indica exacerbates my depression considerably, but I'm still functional and has the bonus effect of killing my terrible allergy symptoms. Sativa worsens my allergies and sort of keeps me couch locked, but it doesn't make my depression worsen. I stay away from Indica now.

    When I worked as a journalist, it was nightly. Nowadays, occasionally.

    What would you do if you got high one time and were stuck like that for your life time?

    How do I answer the poll if I tried it once in college but I didn't inhale?

    Now I'm curious, and would defiantly try it if I had the chance.

    Defiance is key, it's not worth it.

    Once every two or three years nowadays, more often in my teens/early '20s but never on the regular. I don't like weed for the most part - cottonmouth from hell, if I've been drinking I get nauseous.

    If it were legal, I'd like to explore the varieties of boutique weed like they have in Amsterdam or pot dispensaries - I could see getting into something that's more mental than physical. But it's not worth the effort or money for me to make the connections to get really, really good shit here in TX.

    Has anyone ever actually had to take a drug test for a professional job?

    That's one reason I don't partake, you never know when you might need/want to find a new gig and land a great offer but it requires a drug test. Another reason is that like drinking I probably wouldn't be able to do anything productive while high. At least with drinking you're usually out socializing when you do it.

    I used to smoke multiple times per day, but having children has changed that.

    Weed is definitely the downside of living only 15-20 minutes away from the Netherlands. Fortunately, I haven't touched a joint/blunt/pipe/bong since about 5 years by now. At the age of 17-21 I even would have smoked 'Red & Meth' under the table though. I can't stop shaking my head when I reminisce about the amount of money I spent on it, the fucking expensive equipment I owned and the fact that the Netherlands have been like a home from home back then. We really over-egged the pudding...

    Never have never will. Smoking it regularly impairs the brain's ability to learn.

    I thought this was funny, but it just got crickets. :shrug:

    It's the one thing that Bill Clinton and I had in common.

    This pretty much explains why I am the way I am.

    Have smoked it maybe a couple of dozen times in my life. Last was about ten years ago. Tried almost every drug available around that time once or twice (except I missed out on X [​IMG] ), greatly prefer alcohol. Although LSD would be more tempting if it only last for thirty minutes.

    It shows [​IMG] I keed, I keed

    I only tired Marijuana a couple of times, I did not like it at all.

    Not with Marijuana.

    That's why I stopped. I'll do it occasionally. Usually, get high and go to the movies. But, for the most part .. It is a SERIOUS waste of time, time I don't have to waste. Back in Highschool .. I had all the time in the world. Now, I got shit to do.
