If Marijuanna was legalized, would you "partake"?

You are reading page 8 of If Marijuanna was legalized, would you "partake"?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Yes I would. It would treated the way typical responsible working professionals treat alcohol. I grew up around drugs (child of the early 80's coke rage) and I always found my dad to be much more fun when he was smoking pot than when he was drinking (or snorting or whatever). Pot = playing My Little Ponies for hours with me. Alcohol = aggressive, cranky and I'd hide.

I'm assuming most of you have seen this : Medscape: Medscape Access

One drink gets me drunk and nauseous. One hit does nothing. I was a 4 joints a day kinda girl from 16-18. The past few years it's been maybe two joints a year. I'm not willing to do it now that I will have a drug test for nursing school coming up.

But if it were decriminalized, abso-freaking-lutely. I always loved the "God made weed but people made alcohol, who do you trust more?" saying :smokin:

Godisthere, do you have any sources stating that it killed anyone? It, by itself - not mixed with anything else?

I am really loving allnurses central...been reading around the last week or two! Anyway, I am still in school and smoke weed in moderation. I don't get the big deal surrounding weed. I do genuinely enjoy it. It's fun to go to dinner/concert/movie with a nice relaxing buzz. I am not a big partier or drinker, so I drink only once in awhile. I guess weed is my way to relax. I go to school, get good grades, and work. I don't see any problems with it and it doesn't affect me negatively :). However, after graduation I know I will need to completely abstain to protect my future license. In my opinion, I don't think it is necessary to consume any type of drug to be able to enjoy life or have fun. So for now I just look at is as a bonus to my life I guess lol.

Actually, you might want to "consider" quitting before you start clinicals.

When I met my husband (unbeknownst to me) he was a daily pot smoker. He was fun, open, and hard-working. I didn't find out he smoked until after our child was born. I insisted he quit then, which he did. Now, he sits on the couch, watches TV, is generally grumpy. I don't know him at all. On 2 occasions since, he smoked with friends, came home talkative, happy, and even fixed the sink that had been broken for awhile. I find myself wishing for the man he was.(or thought he was.)I have even encouraged him to "go get some green stuff," I don't like or condone drugs of any sort, but this grumpy man who knows the tv schedule by heart, is absolutely not the man I chose to spend the rest of my life with. (so why does pot make most lazy but it does the oppositte to him?)

I have known some people with chemical imbalances that have been helped by pot. Instead of taking prescribed psychiatric medications for their depression or mood swings, they chose to smoke pot, and are productive members of society. They aren't violet, they arent lazy, and they never moved on to any harder drugs.

Your husband may have using pot as a way to self medicate to improve his mood and behavior. I completely understand you wanting him to stop after your child was born because there is no way a child she be exposed to that, but I would suggest a compromise. Allow him to smoke, but never around the child or in the house. Some guys I know usually go to the garage or go to a friends house. See how he responds to that.

I would use it on these horrible days where I can't get my mind to slow down enough so I can go to sleep after work. Unless someone knows something better. Otherwise, it has no benefits for me.

lenny bruce used to say that marijuana would be legal someday because all the law students he knew smoked it. me too. and all the nursing students, med students, engineering students, and everyone else. i did not know anyone when i was in college that did not smoke pot. i have college friends who are now heading divisions in academic medical centers, teaching law, serving as chief nurses in hospital systems, running their own computer companies, bureau chiefs of major news organizations, politicians, city engineers for major metro areas, and lord knows what all else.

 

when i moved a long time ago i lost my connections, and gradually used up the last of my stash. i would be happy to have it again for the odd evening's recreation with a netflix and a pint of cherry garcia. i hear it's a lot more potent now -- two tokes vs. ten is fine c me.

Would I choose to partake of marijuana? Probably not. Frankly, the only drugs I will take are antibiotics if I have a raging infection. Drugs such as Percocet Xanax etc. I could care less for, even though they're legal. After I had my wisdom teeth removed, I was given a prescription for Vicodin. I didn't fill it. I don't believe the BS that Percocet and Vicodin are not addictive. That's why didn't fill it.

Why is it that marijuana is illegal and has no evidence of addiction yet Vicodin and Percocet are legal substances and far more addictive. Perhaps when the powers that be find a way to make marijuana profitable for them, then marijuana be legalized. But it seems that they're making more money with with the war on drugs against marijuana.

Sorry if this looks funny. I am dictating this on my iPad.

I don't remember if I've posted here already, and I'm not going to go back and look, either. But yes, if it is legalized, I might partake. In fact, once I retire, I might partake even if it isn't legalized.

No. . . I would not "partake". . . . I don't even drink. It has nothing to do with any moral/ethical/religous reason. In fact, I think that it's stupid that marijuanna isn't legal already. I just don't like "not having control". Come to think of it, wanting to keep "in control" all the time is probably good enough reason to partake! LOL! But, no. I have no desire to get high or drunk or anything like that.

I am soooooo freakin' boooooring! LOL!!!! :p :lol2:

Puts me right to sleep, no thank you.

And OMG the effects of MJ when combined with alcohol were enough for me to swear off drugs for life. Worse feeling ever.

Ive only smoked a few times many many years ago (probably freshman in high school)

And I have this overwhelming sense of responsibility to model for my kids the types of behaviors I want them to have as they turn into big people and make their own decisions. If it were legalized and they knew I smoked it would be fair game for them.
