How sad that you are so rigid. You say you're a happy man, but everything I've read so far tells me otherwise. I'm certainly glad I don't associate with people who are so closed off. Sorry, Bob, but you generalize so much that your argument is lost. You lose.

No, I really don't care what a doper thinks about the acceptability of drug abuse.

That I don't give up on my morals and my principles.

Tolerance is not the ultimate virtue, and in many cases not a virtue at all. Being open-minded is not the same thing as being willing to leave your standards at the door and concede the existence, and the difference between, right and wrong.

I can be happy with my lot in life and still be unhappy about seeing so much and so many around me swirling down the toilet drain. It's hard at times for them to hear me above the resounding chorus of "Row, Row, Row the Boat" as they circle the bowl, I know.

I will not give up on my values. So I win.

Ok, so I have a question real quick about this subject. I'm honestly really sorry if I offend anyone, I'm just trying to get information. I, myself don't smoke weed, and I don't mind people that do, to some degree. The people that just smoke whenever and just don't try to push it on you, I'm fine with them. The people I don't like are the people that push it on me, and try to convince me why it's good to smoke weed, and other crazy things. Again, I'm sorry if i offended anyone, but are there a lot of these "pushy" potheads in Colorado, or are there more just laid back smokers? Thanks for the time guys.

I haven't smoked since high school myself but when you are in a land where it is judged for what it is and not really criminalized any longer one gets sense of a different outlook about it.

I vote (no)... it should be further decriminalized. when Uncle Sam and the big PharmaCom's get their dirty dealing hands in on it you won't be seeing $60 a quarter signs. (same prices as when I was a kid) one thing I guess that hasn't changed over the years...

You won't offend anyone. I've personally never heard of anyone pushing weed on another in my life. If anything, I find smokers to be very secretive about their vice until I bring it up, which I inevitably will if I sense a fellow smoker in my midst. I'm unabashed in my desire to see weed legalized and that starts with me not hiding my beliefs.
Slightly off-topic but have you seen the new Tampax commercial touting their colorful carry cases? Basically, the crux is that women shouldn't feel shame about a normal bodily function, they should flaunt it! I wholeheartedly agree, and I'm a man. What does this have to do with weed? Shame is such a horrible burden to bear, I'm all about tearing down those walls that hold us back.

Feeling shame ( about anything ) is such a shame!

In my experience, mostly laid back. I've had people offer it to me but never push it on me. It's not my thing. They just pass it to the next person.

To be honest, I've (personally) never known anyone to be pushy with Cannabis. Other drugs, yes...even Alcohol when I was younger, but I've not had that experience with Cannabis.
