No, but I have been around people smoking it.

Really searching for material today huh?

Kathy - 2003-12-10 09:57:31
Yes, but I never inhaled!

Yes - lots of it. At Woodstock... ...OK, so it was Woodstock 1994...

Actually ... Democratic candidate Dennis Kucinich has gone on record as saying if elected, he would decriminalize marijuana, thus freeing up close to 50% of our prisons of fathers and mothers who are behind bars because they enjoyed a smoke while watching "Will and Grace". I am wavering on whether or not I want to support the man in a more public forum than normal supporters and figured I wanted to hear from the people on their own personal drug use. I plan on explaining this a bit better in tomorrow's entry, but for now, if you're interested in this, check this link out: http://www.kucinich.us/issues/marijuana_decrim.php

Uhhh... what was the question again? Define 'you'.

Tory - 2003-12-10 11:45:58
Well, I can tell you that the day after pot was decriminalized in Canada the sun still came up in the east.Infact, life in this border city (Windsor Ontario right across the river from Detroit)has pretty much gone along as usual... with the possiable exception of the influx of American Gays who are weekending here now that thay can get married in Ontario. Damn. I guess the christian right wing crazys were right after all. We have become the Amsterdam of the north!

NO but I look like one of the minority....

yes wanna smoke a big fatty with me right now?
-------------------------------
alyssa - 2003-12-10 12:26:44
it's like masturbation: everyone does it and no one really talks about it. come on, who could live without a little blunt now and again? give god a break from your whining: smoke some weed and let go.
-------------------------------
hcatty - 2003-12-10 12:28:37
Ok, who else finds it ABSOLUTELY mind-blowing that you've got OVER 500 votes about the marijuana thing?? And if typically only about half the readers really vote.. dude. Wow.
-------------------------------
Em - 2003-12-10 12:42:03
ahhh...I'm onto you! You're actually an undercover agent for the DEA, aren't you? ;)
-------------------------------
andrea - 2003-12-10 12:51:13
I smoke pretty regularly, and I don't see anything wrong with it. I do think you have to go without from time to time, though. I'm on a break now. Or am I just out?
-------------------------------
eileen - 2003-12-10 13:12:21
I have ingested but never smoked. I didn't quite know what to answer but I decided to go with yes. If you are a narc, please keep in mind the statute of limitations.
-------------------------------
arhanti - 2003-12-10 13:49:33
no, but i love the smell of that stuff.
-------------------------------
awittykitty - 2003-12-10 14:09:17
well, duh. You don't get like this by eating broccoli. I went to a high school in the wilds of No. Calif. and virtually every kid there was growing pot in their backyard. I even think our Future Farmers of American club had a patch out in the back 40.
-------------------------------
argylez - 2003-12-10 14:36:40
Ah, the great debate. To smoke or not to smoke. Bong hit anyone? Life is too short to NOT try it.
-------------------------------
Amy - 2003-12-10 14:36:59
I never did, but my husband and brother did enough to support the local growers here at one time in their lives.

Did yesterday, not yet today.

westburian - 2003-12-10 16:16:35
I'll bet this democrat already has a tax angle lined up, decriminalization of pot could be followed a scheme to tax it - which would be a vast improvement over going to prison for having a joint in your car's ashtray. I'm sure he's already weighed how much money the courts and legal system is hauling in over someone popped for having a couple of doobies vs how much could be made if it were taxed. It's always about the money. Always.
-------------------------------
westburian - 2003-12-10 16:23:14
if you don't think it's about the money, consider this. Do you really think the seatbelt laws are about saving lives? Is Uncle Sam really that worried about our health? Maybe someone could explain how a $200 ticket for not wearing a seatbelt makes us healthier? Get out your calculator and multiply $200 per ticket per person every day times 365 days of the year and see what kind of $$$$$$$$ we have Uncle Sam collecting for our 'public safety'. Do you still think it's not about the money?
-------------------------------
westburian - 2003-12-10 16:32:23
and for every 'Will and Grace watching mother and father' in prison for marijuana possession there are 9 more that were arrested, made bail, hired lawyers, hammered out a plea bargain and are paying court cost$, fee$, and FINE$ and doing probation. Still think it's not about the money? How about another survey on that one? I always look for the true motivation of our politicians, and the money usually leads right to it. Don't get me wrong, I think decriminalization is a step in the right direction and long overdue.
-------------------------------
Pam - 2003-12-10 17:01:35
No, but I've wondered what it's like. Would I actually do it? No. I have 3 children, and I need/want to be a good example to them.
-------------------------------
Jentle - 2003-12-10 17:13:10
I've never tried it, but I figure my mom did/sold enough for both of us.... maybe for a couple of lifetimes...
-------------------------------
NavajoRebel - 2003-12-10 17:24:42
Yes, bit I stopped once I realized just how fucking stupid it is to waste my life away. I realized that I have a dream, and drugs are one of many things that prevent my dreams from coming true, and I hate people who stand in my way.And all the people below should think that way too. Stupid fuckers.
-------------------------------
Seattle Suz - 2003-12-10 17:36:29
Past tense? What about ďDO you?Ē Iíll spare you the stats and reasons why legalization is a good idea and something Iíd like to see in my lifetime. And in terms of The Man cashing in on some $$, why not? My local govít. is getting all kinds of things done with cigarette taxes. Why do you think pot was illegalized to begin with? It wasnít any particular concern for our health and morality. MONEY, honey. And as far as Kucinich? Heís got a great platform, sadly, itís far too progressive and righteous for the rest our citizenry.
-------------------------------
hey - 2003-12-10 17:58:25
wow, i am amazed so many people have done it, then again you said past tense and how many of those that answered yes are ex-hippie 50-60 year olds who did it once when they were kids and didn't know the risks and shit like that? Although! if this is what it takes for you to support poor ol' kuicinich and probably give him more votes than he has right now, then by all means please be do! personally, we had drug and sex education at school, boys turn into girls with pot, (low sperm count, low testosterone etc). Could you do another poll that asks how many people are doing it right now, currently? and are American citizens, no need to have the canadians speaking in on this since a decriminilazation here wouldn't affect them there.
-------------------------------
Tequillaworm - 2003-12-10 19:11:53
Yep, I still smoke plenty it's been over 25 years and i'm still...... uh...... where was I going with this?????
-------------------------------
Kim - 2003-12-10 19:31:43
Well I said yes but it could have been oregano mixed with dog crap for all it affected me. :)
-------------------------------
Becca - 2003-12-10 20:11:15
I can honestly say I've never had the desire. My brother was one of those who ended up in prison over pot use / distribution and I didn't exactly want that for myself. I'm still back and forth on the decriminalization though.. there are pros and cons either way you want to argue it.
-------------------------------
Pirhan - 2003-12-10 21:38:56
No, but living in the place I live.. I've inhaled it numerous times... and also been offered a plant... 0_o Crazy people.
-------------------------------
scottski - 2003-12-10 22:20:29
everybody picks their own poison... and a li'l bit of this-and-that is pretty low-key on the poison scale. whatever rocks you out of a rut....
-------------------------------
MNLady - 2003-12-10 22:33:00
Thanks, Tory. Now my 19 year old daughter wants to head for Canado so she can try pot without committing a crime!!!! Luckily her car is currently dead! LOL!
-------------------------------
Rae - 2003-12-10 22:58:58
I haven't, and never will - asthmatic tendencies triggered by smoke, don'tcha know - but I'm in favour of decriminalisation. It's just not a big enough deal to be worth policing, in my opinion, especially since the same rules, by the same arguments, should apply to tobacco (and most of them to alcohol, which causes much more peripheral damage to society, and we all know what happened when THAT was criminalised. Why, hello, Mafia...). It's not like decriminalisation has produced massive social breakdown in the places where it's happened. Get over it, lawmakers of the world!
-------------------------------
Head - 2003-12-10 23:10:37
Sure, love the stuff, but dh and I would lose our law enforcement jobs if we were caught so...we're off the stuff until retirement and then...bring it on.
-------------------------------
Marker - 2003-12-11 00:42:38
I agree that the poll results can be slightly skewed with people who smoked it once and hated it or people who tried it a few times in college and never smoked again. In twenty-seven years, I have never heard of a car accident being attributed to marijuana unless alcohol was also a factor. Of course, I'm an excellent driver when I'm stoned so what do I know?
-------------------------------
Rachel - 2003-12-11 01:15:35
Actually marijuana use without alcohol has been the cause of many car accidents and deaths. I don't know what rock you've been living under, but it has certainly caused numerous problems. You saying things like you're an excellent driver when you're stoned is the same all the idiots who drive drunk. Your abilities are impaired whether you believe it or not. I have not and will never smoke any substance, I do not want effect my health and my child's health and I certainly will not set that sort of example for my daugter.
-------------------------------
kathrine - 2003-12-11 01:37:11
Just because pot would be legal, doesn't mean driving under the influence would be legal. driving when you're stoned is stupid.
-------------------------------
Lando - 2003-12-11 05:02:44
i think asking me is the wrong way to go about this. you need actual proof. therefore, i have urinated in a cup. and because i think one sample wont be enough uncle bob, i will leave one sitting on your porch every morning for daily inspection.
-------------------------------
Jack - 2003-12-11 17:24:58
Where is Dennis Kucinich from? Cleveland, that's right. Yay Ohio!

Ry - 2004-01-21 15:39:04
Of course this is never likely to be read since I'm a bit late in replying but I will say that I have taken plenty of drags in my time. I am currently an excellent student in the hardest academic program you can get and recently scored a 790 on verbal. Pot really doesn't do anything to you so long as you smoke somewhere safe and don't try to do anything dangerous while stoned. Pot doesn't cause cancer like cigarettes and isn't addictive like alcohol. It's the single most harmless drug out there. People say smoking sets a bad example but then that leads one to ask: why is it bad to smoke pot? Because it's illegal? Slavery was once legal and that didn't make it ok. The Japanese internment camps in WWII were government sponsered and they weren't ok. Legality has nothing to do with morality. If it doesn't hurt anyone else then I don't think you can really say it's 'bad.' Just my two cents. -C-
