Do you use drugs?
10/18/17 at 10:11:14
 
I'm bored so I am starting a new topic I do not think I have ever sen here...at least not during my time on the site.

Given how cannabis more or less decriminalized in some sort of way nation wide despite being a schedule 1 substance under the federal government...or if you're from Canada, it is straight up legal nationwide starting in 2018....I was curious on others thoughts on the use of cannabis.

For starters, I was never in with the pothead crowd in high school, and it wasn't until after I graduated that I started smoking. My parents have always smoked, and for the most part they always trusted me with my better judgement, so they never really told me it was this horrible thing that I should stay away from...on the contrary my parents are and since high school always have been potheads.

So to spare the details, I started smoking after school about every day after work. I was in this period where I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life ( I still am not 100% sure what I want to do now either) and all I would do is work almost 40hrs a week at my local McDonalds. Now I drink, but I really only drink socially and I always felt that drinking does way more harm to you physical and mental health, and alcohol wasn't an easy access to me so that's why I started smoking weed.

Now, I am not one of those stereotypical stoners who's all like '420 blaze it man' or some shit...But I will tell you that I love smoking...I like that temporary disconnect from the real world and the stress that accompanies it. Today, I don't work the same job I did right after high school. Now I am working two jobs, the first is a first clerk at a local supermarket, the second is a part time CNC machine operator, and between both jobs I get around 60-80 hrs a week. Because of this I don't smoke as much as I use to, maybe around 3 days out of the week.

Anyway, do you smoke weed? Do you use any other drugs? why? if not, what is your reasoning? Do you think it should be illegal? Do you have any fun stories to share while you were high?

Love the the weed. Wish it was legal. I would smoke it if it wasn't for the fact I'd loose my job if I got tested.

It's the same as any drug if you "abuse" it. It's easy to do. The reason why pot isn't dangerous because I'm really certain no one in the history of mankind O.D'd on weed. I know for a fact you can smoke yourself strait. I did that twice in my many years of enjoying the cannabis.

So no I do not smoke weed because it's illegal but, I drink alcohol. Yes that is more dangerous than weed IMO. I've seen 1st hand what heroin and coke can do to a person and it's not very pretty. I got out of the drug circle of friends before meth, oxy, and shit like that came around.

In a very loose statement here, the reason why drugs are such a problem, is because a lot of the populace needs some form of escape from their lives. Drugs are not the only answer but, the easiest to go to. Of course people lift weights, run,or any number of things to pass what free time they have. For those that want an "alteration" of their perception of IRL, drugs are it.

I've never touched a single (illegal) drug in my life but I will not talk shit on anyone who has/does. I like to drink on occasion and haven't touched a cigarette since I was a teenager. I like an occasional Guinness, Shinerbock or Pabst.

I don't think there should be any laws against adult use of drugs. It's your body and you have the right to take care of it or poison it. If you harm anyone else or threaten to harm them -- that's when the cops should intervene. If someone falls into drug addiction I'd rather see them go to their doctor for help and get weaned off than get thrown into a prison for 20 years while a rapist or murderer gets out after 5.

I'd rather see a convenience store for adults 21 and up where you can buy a bag of cocaine for $5 that dons the "Bayer" brand. I'd rather see it legal, regulated and have a small tax levied to fund rehab than illegal and driving up the value...so terrorists can make bukoos of money to fund their operations.

I agree with this, but same thing with alcohol, if you are responsible and moderate you consumption then you are fine...it's the people who abuse it who ruin it for the majority. Now, I still do have other hobbies to occupy my time whether it be drawing, painting, sculpting, or going hiking with friends, so I do not 100% rely on weed as a fall back for an escape from life's every day bullshit. Also almost all of my friends don't touch the stuff, and I think maybe that's what helps me regulate and keep that shit to myself without making a regular habit out of it.

I also agree with this 100%. Though I would never touch anything other than weed and alcohol, who is to say someone cant be responsible with what they choose to put in there bodies. I know a few functional coke heads who don't let there substance use interfere with there jobs, family, or social life...and that's cool for them...but I am already a hyperactive individual so I don't need shit speeding me up...other than a good cup of coffee. And do not get me started on rapists getting such lenient sentences...that shit makes me sick.

Alcohol-  love the stuff even though it can be quite a downer. Its my drug of choice. When you feel good it amplifies the feeling but the same when your depressed. Nothing beats being buzzed and croaking out words to your favortie songs.

Caffeine - only abused it when I worked over nights. Really don't care for the stuff since on high doses it really fucks with my heart.

Weed- Smoked good and bad and inbetween. Still don't understand why its so popular. I really don't care about it, but it does give a noce relaxed feeling.
