    No, I don't do it but recently, I was hanging out with my brother and his friends who partake in it and me and one of his friends out of 6 were the only people who didn't smoke it.

    Now, I don't judge those who do it, I pretty much think the plant is harmless but I just don't see the need to do it. Anyway, I couldn't help but feel annoyed noticing how in cohesive they acted on it (hard to talk with). I really felt out of my element lol. which is weird because I normally didn't when it was around like 1 or 2 people but I don't know, this just felt a little weird to me.

    So my question is, have you ever been the only "sober" one in a marijuana smoking group and if so, can you be around a whole group of people on it?

    Replace marihuana with alcohol and ask yourself "why so many people love alcohol?". Both drugs are appealing to the average citizen. Difference is marihuana in most countries is illegal so people are afraid of it while alcohol is legal so people are comfortable with it.

    I'm not crazy about pot, can't even remember the last time I did it, but I understand why people like it: it makes you feel good, very relaxed and you sleep like a baby. Now if you're the only one that's not high and you get bored just leave. Usually friends stick together because they do the same stuff, so maybe you shouldn't hang out with them so much.

    I don't always hang out with them so it's not a daily thing. I guess it just made me think because it's been awhile since I hung with them. Again, I don't condemn or hate those who do it. The planet is pretty harmless. I just found it a little difficult to talk to them while they were high.

    But oh well, guess I'm just a rube lol

    Eh it depends I think. I remember 2 people who smoked weed daily and they'd always talk and talk with no rest periods.

    But yeah, I guess you're right.

    Stoners bore the fuck out of me. Drunks are more fun unless they are soooooo drunk they can't stand up, are angry or sad drunks, are vomiting on themselves, or worse vomiting on me.

    Pot also stinks.

    Yeah, if you're not going to partake then it's probably not a situation you'd want to be in. Most stoners don't like smoking in mixed company anyway.

    Pot causes people to slow down and think harder. Artists, poets, etc use it for that very reason. It's not always used for recreation. It's medicinal purposes also have a sort of performance enhancing aspect for creativity, because it makes the waters go still on the surface but pick up a stronger current down deep.

    I am currently not drinking alcohol. Blood chemistry issues that need to be remedied and don't seem to be headed to a good resolution(?). While I'd say socializing w/folks who are using alcohol moderately (happy hour) isn't so bad a night of bar hopping/pub crawl or late nights around a camp fire is boring when friends are getting their drink on and I am not so I've been staying home and hanging w/the dogs and knocking off book after book. Living in the PNW we are surrounded by excellent beers, wines and boutique distillery booze so it's kind of a drag to not be enjoying a pint or 2 out but I am dealing. My house if full of home brew too so the jokes on me.

    Smoking dope is still smoking. My friends who recreate or use it for pain management have vaporizers. Not breathing the particulates that way. Seems to be very effective for pain management.

    I have a huge alcohol tolerance but get flat out baked w/1 hit of weed. I really can't use it. Turns me into an even more boring zomby for 3 hrs.. Modern age weed is so potent compared to the ditch weed we smoked in college. You'd have to smoke a shoe box full to get high. Don't miss that either.

    I've been in that situation all too often. I used to not really care. But when they repeatedly flat-out ignore my requests to keep that stuff off my boat (the CG can seize the whole boat if they find even a trace - no trial, no due process) and out of my house... it's time to find new friends.

    Oh, of course, now that it's going to be legal here in a few weeks, certain potheads of my acquaintance keep trying to buddy-up to me, since they know I have a large greenhouse. icon_rolleyes.gif Not to mention the ones who can't keep a job because they have to stay stoned all the time and want to move into one of my spare rooms icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    i don't smoke
    you should consider growing some plants your self. A guy i know grew 6 plants over the summer and generated $200. Not a lot of money i guess but not a lot of plants. 6 plants is the legal limit here.

    I hear the plants have an odor.

    I bet otherwise the green house just sits there. if it becomes legal, it really is the law of the land and you should make some money off it.

    I wish it would become legal in my state. I'd grow it and make edibles and eat them.icon_smile.gif

    The stoners I know don't mind me around them when they smoke. They are happy I don't partake. More for them. I'm intrigued buy the ceremonial aspects of pot smokers. It's almost akin to a Japanese tea ceremony. The ritual intrigues me.

    The decline of LP covers put a major crimp in the style...

    There's one thing terribly, terribly wrong about weed.

    It's that I don't currently have any.

    Well, I didn't mean to imply that they'd rudely ask you to leave. But there is a secret handshake that I can't show you unless you can fail a piss test for me.icon_lol.gif
