Let's talk about what we think of Drugs in America and stuff.

And because this isn't D&D, we can also talk about when we choomed and put on poultices and shit.

    so drugs, dude

    I go to an art school, so I'm naturally surrounded by hippies for most of the day. I was having a discussion today with one of them and he actually made a pretty good point.

    I had assumed that in Canada and the U.S. marijuana would never become legalized because the common-sense argument against it would be "What good would it do?".

    While weed isn't a particularly harmful drug, and could definitely be a lesser evil than alcohol, the fact that North America's leadership, legal and education systems has always been against it, so that no politician or law maker in their right mind would try and endorse pro-drug legislation.

    However my hippie friend has apparently done his research and pointed out that marijuana use has increased pretty steadily in America, especially amongst people in this message board's age range (14-30 or so). In 2001 over half of Americans 18-25 have smoked pot! It's a wonder you're not all DEAD!

    Interesting thing is that while numbers for individual age segments of our population using drugs decline, there's still an overall rise, as those born in the 30s-50s are replaced with the much more drug-permissive population that was born in the 1960s and onward.

    So his argument is that once there have been a generation or two of the population old enough to be law makers (the 40-60 crowd) they'll be much more open to marijuana legalization, because chances are that half of them will have already smoked weed, and decided that it's really not the Reefer Madness situation that's been espoused by the government for the past sixty years.

    I've never done any drugs but I'm not particularly opposed to someone else using them provided they do so responsibly

    It's worth mentioning that a bill has been introduced in California's house of reps that would legalize marijuana. The main gist behind it seems to be economic stimulation, which I think is probably the smartest way to go given all the people who rant and complain about jobless hippies.

    I tried marijuana a couple of times, decided it wasn't for me. But I have no problem with people using it responsibly - it's no worse, in my opinion, than alcohol and I've met numerous people who smoke weed and are quite capable of functioning normally.

    But right now, it would probably be political suicide to try and legalize it in the majority of both Canada and the States.

    It won't do anything

    you have to use a torch lighter to get the actual effects of salvia, because salvinorin has a higher vaporization temperature than a regular lighter, or the continued burning of a "marehuana cigarette"

    ain't got nothin' against pot.

    i might be more inclined if I didn't have to buy it from creepy lookin' dudes on the street corner.

    I haven't smoked weed in a year or so.

    I don't even really get super fucked up on booze that much anymore.

    I think I'm getting old. :(

    All my friends do when they smoke up is listen to Run-DMC and watch youtube videos.

    what if he deserves it and I make him smoke in a safe and cozy place so he wont get hurt, or like, right when hes smoking I tell him ''HAH DUDE THATS SALVIA''?

    beside I would use his salvia, so its not like he was against it or whatever, it would just be a surprise ''holyshittrippinballs''

    First time I smoked pot I was with my cousins camping and the park ranger and some dude camping near us came by and was all "Hey wanna smoke some weed?". I thought it was a trick because a freaking park ranger (she was around 24, "all natural") was asking us to smoke weed with them, but she takes out her pipe and a leather baggie of weed. My cousins didn't smoke because they're responsible but I took full advantage.

    We smoked for about 45 minutes and then they left, and my cousins and I were talking about the dude because he had an eye patch on. After that, the only thing I remember is running around the fire, playing guitar, and singing pirate songs. Next morning I realized I didn't know any pirate songs but I was convinced I was singing them last night.
