I doubt somebody that is a stoner is not going to know how to smoke cigarettes properly. Unless of course they are an 8th grade girl.

If you are talking to me, I was replying to Suvaco, not Lotus (the stoner guy) originally.

Didn't know that, but tobacco is a different type of harsh anyway, and if you don't smoke tobacco much, it can make your lungs convulse even if you are a pretty regular bong ripper. Not saying you'd enjoy the nic high even if you took a bunch of deep drags, of course. It's awful.

Good man lol.

I tried cigs before, like at parties and what not, people just kind of offer you one and you try it. You don't get addicted off of the first one though. In order to get addicted, you have smoke like 3-4 consecutively to build up the nicotine, otherwise its just not strong enough to make you addicted.

When are people going to start ponying up to their actions?
It says on the side of the package a warning from the Surgeon General. Huge print on the side. Not to mention EVERYONE knows they are bad for you.

God people are so stupid. How about taking charge of your life for once and not blaming shit on everyone else.
Were there big ass surgeon generals warnings 40 years ago?

Smoking is great. It feels awesome, tastes awesome, looks cool, is sociable......

Weed on the other hand, shit, I never remember being high on weed being that great, even as a kid. It doesn't have a very strong affect at all(no, not a quantity issue, trust me). As big a waste of money as ***s.

Uhh there wasn't. But about 20 years after that, people figured out. "Oh hey, this shit is bad for you". That is when you say, I might want to quit doing this.

Don't tell me you can't quit. My dad smoked for 15 years, and went cold turkey when I was 12. Hasn't touched a cigarette since. Yes, it does take some will power, but there are plenty of products out there to help quit.

This guy obviously didn't care too much, he smoked right through Chemo, so why should the courts care? If your not going to take care of your body, your greatest asset, then that is your fault.


Edit: To add, I like pot a lot more than cigs. I feel so much calmer on weed than cigs. I wouldn't say its a bigger waste of money than cigs. Especially with the tax on cigs now a days.



Ultimately it doesn't matter though. This shit will instantly get appealed and go to the supreme court. Where common sense will be in order and they will probably settle out of court.

I thought it tasted like shit, but to each his own.

Well, you're in Ireland, right? I can't imagine Irish weed being that good. California weed is where it's at.

Also, you bite your tongue. Being high on weed is awesome. Everything you experience while blazed is 10 times better than it would be normally.

I seriously don't think weed is as big a waste of money as cigs, considering the fact that taxes in the US make cigs overpriced as shit, and I can get an ounce of strong weed for $200.
