After tonight, all I can say is... there is nothing better than drifting in snow when high. I felt like a kid in a candy store. (I'm not that of an experienced driver and this was the first time I drove in snow actually)

For the record, I drove only on a plain field with no cars around, I didn't drive on the road or anything, so no lives were harmed. That's just in case you're getting mad thinking that some idiot is driving under influence on the roads.

Sounds pretty nice. I don't like driving in the snow but I guess it could be different with no other cars around. I got my first session in and I'm about to get started on another for the Bellator fights. Night is just beginning.

I'm 100% for it being legal & believe that it is less dangerous than both alcohol and cigarettes.

In Sweden you don't get punished hard for smoking it or getting busted with small amounts. A small fine is all. The trouble it causes to you legaly is that it could make it difficult to get a job when you have a drug-bust in your record.

might aswell put my two bobs worth in!

I am 32 and have smoked on and off since i was 15. Like alot of other drugs it depends on the person taking it but i can say it has had a PROFOUNDLY positive inmpact on my like

i have been a disability support worker for over 5 years and have a crappy arts degree. i have played soccer at a decent level since i was young and have now been coaching over 10 years

my coaching career is on the rise and im now coaching a group of talented older kids. not bragging just pointing out what you can still do well even being a semi-pro smoker lol

my mental ability is at an all time high (pardon the pun) and seems to be ever improving


weed has been good for insight and reflection etc (though i dare say there are other drugs that trump it in that department) but ive just had soooo many good times with it, and find that i can get what takes about an hour of meditating in one puff!

i generally smoke most nights and weekends (an ounce will last me 3 months though). when i have kids i will cut down so i can be more alert in the middle of the night

CONS:

if your not self aware it can get in the back door and be a catalyst for some depressive momentum

if you smoke loads its expensive and probably bad for your lungs etc


what a good topic! i could chat about it for hours. i will say that growing up in the weed capital of australia has its advantages

I'm glad I live in Washington, where we finally legalized recreational weed for people 21+. I just need to figure out how much one needs to smoke to be below 5ng/ml so you can drive without being "under the influence."

Can you even prove that one was driving under the influence? If you haven't smoked a lot and they do some tests, couldn't you easily argue that you were high the day before, since it takes time to get THC out of your system?

They really didn't think this legislation through. I could have come up with a more detailed law. They're leaving it up to the police officers to use probable cause to do a blood test. And like you said, weed doesn't play by alcohols rules. You can smoke a week before and still fail a drug test, yet be as sober as the officer testing you.

How do you guys like to smoke your weed? Joints, blunts, pipes, bongs, vaporizers? What is your preferred method. I use the least healthy and probably least efficient method most of the time and that is blunts. But usually very small blunts. Funny because cigarillos use to be considered small but now they have mini cigarillos, which is what I use. Sometimes I still like using the natural leaf in a Garcia Vega. But I rarely smoke alone and smoking a blunt is an easy way to smoke with your buddies. Pass the dutchie from the left hand side.
