StrangeQ: EvilEgg: Researchers looked at 30 people who smoked about 10 joints a day and compared them to 30 who did not.

Holy Crap!  Ten a day, seems like you wouldn't have time or money for food.

I'm trying to figure out how anyone could smoke that much and be a functioning member of society.  Smoking an entire joint would give you the intoxicating effect of at least 2-3 shots of 80 proof.  10 times a day would put you in a state of permanent, debilitating inebriation.


I could easily smoke a joint every hour all day and still be completely functional.  Someone who isn't a daily smoker most likely could not do that.  I could not, however, have a shot or 2 every hour all day.


/weed and alcohol are not comparable in terms of the intoxication effects and duration.
//alcohol is much worse

Your mom and me: If I'm on a diet I can't smoke. Munchies completely ruins it. "Cookies with my chickfila? Sure, I'll run it off tomorrow...". Repeat every day I smoke.

/buffalo and ranch sauce mixed with nuggets
//gay cock nuggets


Drink water.  Food cravings in general tend to be caused by your brains association on "sweet == moist".  Marijuana is actually pretty effective at letting you starve yourself, if you hydrate.

StrangeQ: GanjSmokr: Additionally, did I ever say I was better at anything when high?  I get it that you can't comprehend that people can function at all after smoking several joints.  The long and short of it is you're wrong.

I know you can function.  Maybe even passably.  But you're not going to function on the level of someone with a completely clear and sober head.

Marijuana legislation would probably get passed a lot more quickly if the stoner crowd would stop acting like smoking a joint is no different than taking a cigarette break.


You have no idea how "passably" I or any other smoker can function.

Look, I've seen people drink 1 beer and be tipsy.  I've seen people drink a 12 pack and be lucid and perfectly functional.  I've seen people take a hit of pot and pass out on the couch and I've seen people - like me - who can handle smoking as much as you give them and they are still completely functional and able to do anything they were able to do before they got high.

Again, DIFFERENT INTOXICANTS HIT DIFFERENT PEOPLE DIFFERENTLY.

If you find that you are worthless after a hit or two of pot, that's YOU.  That' not me, that's not him, that's not her.  It's YOU.  Quit pretending you know exactly how a certain thing affects anyone other than YOU.

Your math does NOT add up.  Alcohol is completely debilitating when overdone... pot not so much.

I am aware of their differences and that it's not a perfect comparison.  That still doesn't change the point that if you smoked that much there is no way you're going to be functioning on a level any higher than flipping burgers.  And if that's your job, there's no way you're able to afford to smoke that much all day.  And even if that is your job, the fact that you show up perma-stoned every day shows that one: you are a completely irresponsible individual that probably shouldn't be trusted near anything more dangerous than the salad bar, and two: that is likely the highest level of responsibility you are ever going to achieve in your life.

Unless you're a cancer patient on permanent disability, there is simply no justifiable reason to ever smoke that much on a daily basis.


I defended my MS thesis in Entomology after smoking four joints.

You must hang with lightweights.

Jubeebee: StrangeQ: GanjSmokr: StrangeQ: GanjSmokr: It's cute when people talk like they know something about something they don't really know much about.

Tell us about how someone who smokes that much weed wouldn't have time to go to their job being a black jazz musician because they would be too busy raping all the white women.

It's cute when idiot stoners making minimum wage try to act like they have their lives together and know so much more than responsible people who smoke and also hold jobs making 6 figures.  It's also amusing when they try to deny all scientific studies showing the cognitive effects of pot smoking and instead still live in the fantasy world that weed gives them superpowers.

You got me... I'm browsing and posting to FARK every day from my minimum wage fry station at McD's.  Sure hope the boss doesn't see me!!

/don't you have to be at the gym soon, sparkles?

So unemployment or permanent disability?  Otherwise I would just love to know what job you have where you can be perma-stoned throughout the day and have it not have any impact on your job performance.

Graphic designer, maybe?


Yay.  That'd be me.  I also operate presses (both ink and toner).
Rarely is being straight/sober an asset in this job - people bring in poo stains on a napkin and expect you to make a custom wedding invitation out of it.  Or some snotbag doctor or lawyer wants to fit 4 or five job titles and excerpts from his resume on a business card and gets fussy when it ends up in 7 point type.  Or they email a thumbnail-sized JPEG and expect a 4'-x-8' banner to be made from it without incurring any sort of extra work ("doesn't the computer just enhance it automatically?").  Yah, these are the "straight" people.  Sorry, I'm no Rhodes Scholar or Nobel Prize winner, but most of the time the stupid, mind-numbing nonsense I'm regularly expected to pull out of my arse involves keeping my I.Q. a few points in the red just for sanity's sake.

/occasionally useful for trying to explain things to people on Fark too.

StrangeQ: GanjSmokr:I never said I was perma-stoned throughout the day, I simply said I could smoke a joint an hour and be think I was being perfectly functional.  On a weekend, you might find me doing exactly that as I work around the homestead (and sometimes take after hours support calls for my job).

I'm not talking about on the weekend.  Yeah, I can talk my semi-computer illiterate parents through updating a license key over the phone on a Saturday afternoon after toking up, too.  The same can not be said for briefing my boss and a boardroom full of engineers on the intricacies of a new system while completely blazed.  If I tried to pull that I would be looking for a new job.

But I suppose according to you that's just because I'm unfortunately not one of those for whom weed makes them better at everything.


Well, the calls on the weekend don't consist of walking my mom through sending an email or anything trivial like that, they are usually more of a network or computer related problem that often requires immediate attention or their location is essentially closed.  I really don't care what you believe you are capable of when you're high.  You're not me, I'm not you.  Amazingly enough, different intoxicants hit different people differently.

Additionally, did I ever say I was better at anything when high?  I get it that you can't comprehend that people can function at all after smoking several joints.  The long and short of it is you're wrong.

Not that it's any of your business, IT.  I'd ask you what you do but I honestly don't give a damn.

Uchiha_Cycliste: It's been my experience that what Pot does is suppress the message your brain gets from your tummy that says "I'm full, knock it off' and that the munchies only begin once you've started eating and then go, "OMG! food is like amazing!" If you manage to not start eating, there is really no compulsion to veg out.


I avoid the munchies by eating before i get high. If i'm already hungry when i get high, the implications for world food supplies could be dire...

Nurglitch: After the first couple of puffs you don't get any higher, although if you smoke all day you'll be high for longer. Kind of a waste of weed.


Also the reason all the arguments about weed being so much stronger these days is total horse crap. it may well be stronger but you can only get so stoned, once your at that point any more you smoke is just wasted. The key is small amounts continually. strong weed just means you can smoke less.

Holy shiat I know. I mean when I have pot I'll smoke til it's gone but the most I've ever smoked has been 6 joints in one day. I couldn't imagine smoking 10 joints a day. Maybe those people just have shiatty pot?
