I am done with them. Fuck that. The cliché is true; they're bad for me.

I think they mask problems and make them worse. Sure, they might be fun or badass or whatever but they bring you down. It doesn't matter if it's marijuana, mushrooms, LSD or whatever. It's bad news for me and I don't encourage it.

With that said I support decriminalization and treatment for first time offenders.

I wish I was like you; easily amused.

Arnold... Layne... is.... growing up? Getting his shit together? Man, December 2012 really is coming fast! :nervous:

Attention World:

"Loose" means something is not tight, for example "My shoelace is loose."

"Lose" means to misplace or to not win. Examples include, "Keep your keys in your pocket so you don't lose them," and, "The Yankees are going to lose tonight and every day this week for sure because they suck."

Thank you.

Negative. I work with law enforcement and these drugs ruin lives. The life of the person who uses them runs the risk of getting a disease. The people who use them, have ruined other innocent people lives. I m glad you mentioned marijuana. Some people are ignoant and think they cause no harm. I have seen too many times someone really high on weed and cause an accident on the road.

Negative.

I have a friend who smokes marijuana regularly (not even a hard drug) and he's becoming dependent on being high. I don't do drugs myself nor do I have a problem with people who smoke marijuana, but in this case, it's at the point where he's content with just working a part-time job and getting high on his days off. He's got no direction planned. As much as he says he wants to go out there and do something, he lacks a lot of motivation. Instead, he'll just get high and play video games. He's definitely afraid of growing up and smoking up every day is only relaxing him to the point where he doesn't care.

Me and some of our other friends have voiced concern. Not because he's getting high, but because he's just wasting time.

Naw, man, that's impossible! Weed can't do that! :rolleyes:

My friend has that problem too. He works some crappy part time job, hates it, talks about finding a new one yet he stays there. Has this girlfriend who is a fat condescending bitch. Pot makes him put up with it but it isn't make anything much better. Pot is great for physical treatment but psychologically it just cements your feet while the water slowly rises.

Precisely. It might make you relaxed enough to forget about a problem for a while, but when you come down from that high, the reality is that the problem is still there.

People actually think there's nothing wrong with being fine. Like those "It could be worse" situations. My friend is content for now, give him another fifteen or twenty years when very little changes he may end up using one of his many guns on himself.

Well, at least pot helped him live a little longer.

Drugs/alcohol can be a a great servant, but an equally bad master (Proverbs, or was it Christopher Hitchens?).

i would say it depends on the individual
