    High Seniors

    I am 61 and retired. All done being enslaved and generating money for others who saw me as a SUBordinate. For the past 8 years I only bought weed for myself on Thanksgiving and it lasted until Jan 1. Now my time is my own. I know I am going to enjoy weed like I never did before...

    So, my mom just called me out.

    This is the second time she's come in my room and told me it smells like skunk. I diverted her attention, but I had to pull my head out of my *** and at least say something to her about it. "I just want you to know that I don't take you for a fool. I know you know. I just...

    I am still not sure why there is suck a stigma

    on this drug. it seems to have much better pain killing effects then some of the awful opiates. Legalizing this for medical use should be a no brainier. Instead it seems it is more political then just helping helping people.

    Another kid gets arrested

    for "attending to distribute 'schedule 1' drugs" meaning marijuana which isn't even technically a schedule 1 drug. What are the cops gonna do with the weed the confiscated? Probably smoke it. Or worse throw it away. The teen is stuck in jail now. Come on! I'm sick of these...

    Primarily, for medical use,

    pot must be legalized. I won't get into why. The information abounding on this is on the internet. Go get educated. If you already are, then my story about a friend of mine in Israel will be an example of how global this issue is. My friend in Israel has a great deal of pain...

    Is a decent job worth living in constant fear

    of a random drug test? I think not. It's none of my job's business what I like to do in my spare time. It's not like I'm killing people or totally self destructive and out of control. Alas, this is my reality, and it puts a major dent in my happiness. I hope to see the courts...

    I don't actually smoke.

    I tried it a couple of times, and never noticed any difference one way or another, so I just decided not to bother. I just think that it's pointless for it to be illegal, and for non-violent offenders to go to jail for something that is less inherently dangerous than alcohol...

    Seriously, like the worst crime ever associated

    with someone high on weed is them forgetting to pay for a twinkie on the way out of the store. Of course, there's all kinds of bullshit when you start talking about huge quantities but otherwise, it's a wonder drug. I haven't smoked for the last month but before that, it was...

    Does Weed Make You Horny?

    I don't know if you've ever seen the 1950-60s movie called "Reefer Fever", but it's hilarious. The theme behind it is all of the terrible things that people will do if they smoke grass... like turning into murderers, rapists, robbers, sex addicts, and generally horrible people...

    It's safer than alcohol both

    for your body, and society. It has very few side effects, and they're not long term or even harmful, for the most part. Also, it doesn't disorient you as much as alcohol. I don't see why it's illegal.

    I think if alcohol is legal,

    why shouldn't weed be legal? Alcohol can do just as much harm as weed, and it's not illegal, there's no prohibition. As long as people don't go crazy with it, there shouldn't be a big deal, moderation is key.

    I do not smoke it often at all,
