We had polished off dinner, tucked the kids into bed and cracked open a bottle of wine. That's when our guest pulled out a tiny change purse and took from it what my husband and I thought was a cigarette. It was actually a joint.

"This is my nightcap," she announced, lighting up and inhaling in matter of milliseconds. "I hope you don't mind


Ah bullsh*t. Nobody would light up a joint without knowing how the people around them would react.

The biggest problem is that there is such a stigma against it that it drives all the normal people smoking it - and there are waaaay more than you would expect - into silence on the matter.  The public face of it is now these weirdos at places like NORML or the hippies on the street corner.

/Anyways, I also don't get all the comments from TFA with everyone saying they don't smoke but they'd appreciate pot brownies.  Most people can't handle pot brownies at all.  Trust me, if you don't smoke regularly you don't want them.
//Also, it doesn't make your house smell for more than an hour at most, it's not like cigarettes.

My friend's cancer-ridden Mom has tried weed for the first time...and it works! (not for Cancer like some idiots claim, just chemo)

Not that she can actually go and just get it, since Obama had all of San Diego's dispensaries shut down. I have to still illegally get it for her.

Suck it Obama. Suck it long and hard, you son of a biatch. At least another Democrat (Bob Filner) is trying to set things right now.

I call shenanigans. In this day and age most people know that it's better to be raped by baboons than to try to light up any kind of smoking product in someone's house. "Take it outside" is de rigeur.

They really need to completely make it legal already. I hate when I get all paranoid about the police while smoking in my car. I don't know about anyone else, but driving stoned makes it much easier to text and drive. I don't feel rushed and I can take my time and get stuff done.

I've seen this coming since it was brought up in my government class 4 years ago. As soon as something stops becomes sociatally weird or unknown, once it's introduced through curiosity and self interest, the majority will accept both the pros and cons and let it integrate it as part of their society. And that's called majority. I think there's a thing for that.

I predict Republican employment will rise a bit, and that half of the states that are medicinal will go recreational. THAT'S a farkin compromise.

Since the first "I smoke pot" conversation one usually has is with one's parents, I daresay you're right.

This right here. My west coast family and friends are all highly tolerant, if not outright users. My east coast family and friends are all uptight about it and make lots of cracks about how "relaxed" the west coast is (read: lazy and good for nothing). This is one 'trend' that's definitely moving east - so yeah, people like the author of this pile of crap could have some issues with people 'coming out' as smokers.

i don't know of any stigma against it. i have a lot of professional friends who smoke. no one seems to make a big deal out of it.

i disagree about the smell though. perhaps not as bad as cigarettes, but pot really smells like poop. and it will linger for at least a couple days (depending upon your house: do you have carpets, how low are your ceilings, etc).

/ bs story, now one in this century lights up anything without asking whether they should step outside or not.

I take it neither of you live in northern California, or just about anywhere else in the north west for that matter. The only time anyone has asked me if I was cool with it was when we were in my car. Generally I say no, unless we're on the highway and they crack their window.

Guests at my house should consider its facilities at their disposal. Drinks, food, I welcome them to take what they like. If somebody lit up in my house without asking first they should be expecting it to be slapped out of their mouth with a reasonable amount of force and not invited back. You might as well have spat in the corner or poured water out of a cup onto the floor. There's a porch for that shiat. Hell, they can hotbox the shed if they want. Just lighting up wherever is rude.

You know... there's something more rebellious, more criminal, about someone who insists on obtaining an illegal drug for a high. Especially when there are legal drugs (alcohol) easily available. And for which one doesn't have to flout the law. Why not just stick with alcohol? Is it the illegality that's attractive? The nature of the high? Society's not going to tell you what to do? I've tried it, and was frankly underwhelmed, especially in light of the costs of obtaining and using it. I'm not wondering about cancer or glaucoma patients, just the recreational user.
 
2013-01-11 05:27:19 PM
I've noticed this via FB status updates. Seems a lot of people I know are, if not enthusiasts, then at least casual weed smokers. It's odd, I've never been curious or had the urge to try smoking up, even though I apparently know plenty of people who could hook me up. Ecstasy, on the other hand, that I admit to being curious about.

I disagree about the smell, too. I work at a school for at-risk kids and we can tell the pot smokers with one whiff. It permeates their clothing - hell, their very being. Of course, most of these kids can't afford much more than stank, skunky, weed, so that might be the problem. I don't think they're exactly getting the high grade stuff that's medicinal quality - so I don't know if the smell is better with that grade of plant.

It's certainly true that some people get euphoria from pot, and some don't. I'm in the latter category; I just feel dumb and fall asleep. Oddly, I don't mind the smell of the smoke.

Buying ditch weed (which is actually not skunk, that's a good quality to have in higher grade strains) usually means you need to smoke a hell of a lot more than you would of higher grade strains, meaning you'll basically be bathing in smoke trying to get a high. Higher strains can be one puff and done, meaning there's actually very little smoke. I can smoke a couple hours before having people over, spray some freshener in the vents, turn on the A/C, and no one's any wiser.
