    Just curious to know how many of you have smoked weed. When was your first time and how did it felt? Do you live in a place where marijuana is legal? What methods do you use to consume marijuana? Share your stories.

    Tried it for the first time with my ex. I got extrenrky introverted and wanted to ponder about life while he wanted to be intimate. I then ate all of his groceries and fell asleep.

    It's not for me

    420 friendly as well. My first time was the night of my last final exam 3 years ago, still not legal where I live...icon_sad.gif
    We used a bong and did shots beforehand. It was around the time E.T. by Katy Perry was on heavy rotation and I went of a tirade about how an alien invasion was upon us and how a new species will take over Earth once they procreate with us...Then, I passed out on the stairs & woke up in some light puke and scene!!! icon_cool.gificon_biggrin.gif

    Why won't u try smoking weed?
    I'm just curious as to what your rationalization is. I find it strange you've never even tried the stuff, yet you're making a thread dedicated to it. what gives?

    I'm 420 "friendly" but can't use it due to my safety sensitive career, which comes complete with regular "spot testing" for drug use. So I guess you could call me a pothead-at-heart.

    I use it. Daily pretty much.

    Did all through university as well, and college, and culinary school.

    Try it.

    I say that because I could pull out facts from legitimate sources (not sure of legality of pulling it from University's database) that do show it can cause permanent damage to parts of your brain and lungs. But I really don't want all the potheads to start fighting back and stuff.

    So

    Never drink diet coke? Never smoke a cigarette, never drink, don't eat any refined sugar.

    And why would it be so terrible to have someone challenge your ideas? Studies have also shown that pot helps with many things.

    Many things cause permanent damage or long term damage to you.

    Typical anti pot smoker, nothing to rebut with.

    Also, helping seizures and other diseases? less than petty.

    All my friends did it when I was a teen. I tried it once and it was like "meh". My friends all got high and somewhat boring in a way. I said "Screw that. I'll stick drinking Rum and Cokes. At least that left me in a happy silly state.

    Ah, teenage lifeicon_lol.gif

    I don't consider myself a 'pot head'. To me that evokes Cheech and Chong stereotypes, people who are stoned from morning ("wake and bake") to night.

    My pot usage is somewhat sporadic. I've gone for years and not smoked at all. More recently I tend to get high three or four nights a week. With a few exceptions, I confine my usage to evening hours when I haven't any other responsibilities. But it varies. Sometimes I go for weeks and don't use it at all.

    My first time smoking pot was in April, 1967 (age 19, college freshman). It was a very memorable evening. I was with this rugby player I had a bad crush on who lived in my dorm and his friend, Jeff, who was the first openly gay man I ever met. The rugby player (I don't mention his name as we're still friends IRL) and I rode up to North Side Chicago on his motorcycle. First time I'd ever ridden one. (Very nice having my arms around him in his leather Varsity jacket ;) LOL.)

    The evening was like a scene out of a 60s movieā€¦ Lounging around on mattresses covered with indian print bed spreads, bean bags, rock posters on the walls, candles, incense, and listening to the Doors, Velvet Underground and such. The three of us had a very interesting conversation that roamed all over the place. I wasn't 'out' at the time but Jeff 'had my number' from the first moment he laid eyes on me. He figured I had a crush on the rugby guy (who wouldn't!). Jeff was very witty and funny, often making gay innuendoes that went right over the jock's head. I however, go them (or at least some of them), which made the evening even funnier.

    Later Jeff drove the 3 of us in his yellow VW to a party at the corner of North and Wells Street in Chicago's Old Town. The drive there (to me) was kind of terrifying. LOL The party, however was very arty, hip and cool. Girls in mini skirts and go go boots, guys in nehru collard shirts. People smoking, drinking, dancing, hanging out. Me grooving to the Stones' "Lets Spend The Night Together." Most of the crowd were Art Institute of Chicago students. I was amazed at how many openly gay guys were there (some lesbians, too, but didn't pay much attention to them ;) ). That's where I met the first Chicago guy I would sleep with (a few weeks later), a young black guy named Pierre. It was an awesome experience all in all.

    For me smoking pot has a strong 'nostalgia' element. I saw some 'heady' days in the Sixties. That summer Jeff and I shared an apartment and I could write a whole book about that experience, LOL! So many people came there to party and get high that summer, it was a definite 'life changing' experience.

    In my view, psychedelic drugs (and pot is one, although a rather mild one compared to psilocybin, LSD, Mescaline or DMT) are not for everyone. I prefer it to alcohol but that's my personality type. I don't like getting drunk at all. Yuck! To me, pot is 'cozy' by comparison.

    I use it because it alters my perceptions just enough that I see things and think about things a bit differently than I usually do. I especially like watching movies when I'm high. More engrossing. I also like reading and writing (and posting in a forum) when I'm a bit toasted.

    I'm very moderate in how 'high' I like to get, though. I don't like eating food that has been infused with THC (the active ingredient) because it is impossible to gauge dosage. Smoking (or using a vaporizer if you're concerned about the health aspects of smoke) is better for me because I can take a couple tokes and very quickly decide if I want more or not. When you eat it, it takes longer to take affect and if you've eaten too much there's no going back. A time or two I've eaten half a brownie and gotten so waisted I couldn't even move.

    I'm acquainted with the regional director of NORML. I've gotten high with him and a few other *true* (as in political activist) pot heads. They get far more 'waisted' than I like to. But it is always interesting to me how I can be so fucked up I can hardly talk but they're just yammering away telling the most outrageously funny stories--or talking political strategies with total coherence.

    For me, pot is more like a martini is for most folks. It relaxes me, gives me a bit of a buzz and that's all I need. If I get too stoned I begin to feel a bit paranoid, especially if I'm around people I don't know well. If I'm just 'toasty' no problem. It makes me more social.

    I love the way it activates my senses. Sex while high is awesome! OMG Very sensuous. I have to be careful about the munchie factor though as I can wipe out an entire pint of ice-cream and more.

    Pot is semi-legal here. I have a med card so can buy from a dispensary. But being in possession of an oz or so even if you don't have one is just a fine at this point. I enjoy going to the big 420 day rally here on Campus. Obviously not everyone indulges but it is fairly common across a wide range of age groups at this point.

    medical use is different. Because it treats an actual symptom.
