Personally I don't care who uses drugs or what drugs they use. As long as you're not putting anyone's life in danger then go ahead. With that said it's pretty awful that i'm watching my alcoholic husband suffer from cirrhosis. He was told he had it last month after throwing up blood & having it in his stools. He had to have esophageal varices banding done. He is also having edema in his penis. Ascites in his abdomen which makes him look pregnant. 3 days in the hospital, one trip to imeditate care, another 5 hour trip to the hospital, another 3 day stay in the hospital. This all in a span of a month and a half. I have even caught him drinking since all of this started. He's most likely going to die and there is nothing I can do. As far as weed. My dad loves it. It cost him good truck driving job back in the day after they drug tested him. He also got arrested after flipping his truck because they found it.

Who let DARE in here? Seriously, these are the defenses you hear when speaking to 12 year olds in school about drugs. As adults we all know it's a little more complex than that.

In response to a confession. And who decides whether alcohol and/or weed is a "bad" thing? You? You get to be the moral arbiter of what is bad or good? Are you Jesus? Interested to know what the standards are for being good or bad, especially as it pertains to weed. Also, what's with the use of "cool"? Nobody over the age of 20 smokes weed because it's "cool", that is such a teenage way of looking at it. People smoke it because they enjoy it and/or because of some benefit it gives them, either medical or otherwise.

I don't see the point in alcohol either. But just because people use one bad thing, doesn't mean that makes it cool to use other bad things.

We found a falafel joint with the most amazing, freshly made doughy pita bread. We've been here three times in the past week. Uh oh, I'm in trouble!

I don't see the point of alcohol. Roughly 40% of inmates imprisoned for violent crimes in my country were drunk. Depending on the study, 35-70% of those committing sexual assault including rape were drunk at the time. I don't think I even have to bring up alcohol and it's relation to domestic violence, or drink driving. I've had three alcoholics in my extended family, two are dead and all three succeeded in massive amounts of destruction to our family. I live in an area near a lot of bars and clubs and I regularly see people in a complete mess walking home and totally vulnerable, vomit on the street and I also hear about regular violence committed by drunk people against paramedics, doctors and nurses. Give me a stoner any day. At worst he's too lazy to do anything with is life (although that doesn't fit most of the stoners I know). At least he's far less likely to be out raping people or beating his wife or mowing down pedestrians.

I know I am biased about pot. I don't like it. At all. I don't see the point in using it for non-medical uses. My brother started using it about 5 years ago, when he was well into his 40s. He says it helps him relax. He is an executive at his company and has worked there for 15 years. He has two kids. He claims no one knows. They do. I'll admit that most of the time, I probably can't tell. But there are times he thinks no can tell, and we can. It's illegal here. He's risking his job. He's risking arrest, which will happen where we live, and all the legal costs and fines that go with it. I've asked him why he doesn't try exercise and/or meditation and such. He says he doesn't have time for that. I don't get it. I don't get why he would risk his family's security to get high. I know his wife also hates it. And it's just a matter of time before his kids are old enough to figure it out.

My husband smokes weed every night. He has for years. He's a corporate, white collar, businessman who struggles with anxiety and depression. When he doesn't smoke in the evenings his anxiety is off the charts. Prescription antidepressants gave him erectile dysfunction and trouble urinating. This is his cure. In my humble opinion, people who talk shit about weed, be it for recreational or medical use, are some of the most brainwashed morons on the planet. I don't smoke marijuana, but I would never force my husband to stop just because I don't like it.

In response to a confession. My benefit is athletic performance. Yup seriously. If I get "slightly high" as opposed to "completely zonked" I get into the zone much better and can pretty much thrash everything at the gym or on the hiking trail. And even (although I don't do this often because I think it sort of defeats the mind/body benefits of it) on the yoga mat. I think a lot of people have a view of stoners as these immature, chubby giggling morons covered in Cheeto dust and wearing Red Dwarf t-shirts. I don't live in a legal area and I know a lot of extremely high functioning stoners in very good jobs (some have families, but most of the time not) who use cannabis for a non medical function like creativity or sports performance or to ensure a deep sleep for a hard day's work the following day.
