Cannabis should definitely be legal. I personally don't partake, and don't want to, however I know so many successful, career driven people whom also smoke pot. My uncle is VP of a huge textbook company (obviously not going to name it), and he and my aunt have smoked pot since their teens. In fact all my aunts do, and what's more, all these people are conservative. Also, a great friend of mine is now about to graduate from a top 10 law school, and he literally started smoking pot at 13. That's pretty nuts if you ask me, but he's from Kentucky

Obviously though, on the flipside I know more than a couple burnout dropouts. I think someone's ambition and motivation are independent of their pot smoking. At least, that's how I explain the difference between the two groups. Ultimately the worst things that can be said about stoners is that they're hungry and goofy, and depending on your perspective that might not be so bad.

For the most part, people haven't really been pushy with me to smoke. The most pushy I've seen is when I'm with friends who are smoking, and they continually pass the pipe to me "forgetting" that I don't smoke. My assumption is that when I say I don't smoke, some people think I'm judging them. It's the same reaction I think happens when I'm having dinner with someone and explain I'm vegetarian - they think I'm judging their meat-eating habits.

Sorry for not letting the thread die but I came upon this most interesting article. Particularly intriguing is that alcohol sales, and auto accidents, have been shown to drop in states that have legalized marijuana. Kind of hard for the uninformed to spin this:
Stoned drivers safer than drunks? - car insurance - MSN Money

I read on Yahoo news last week that smoking one joint a day causes very little lung damage and if you vaporize or eat it there is no damage done to the body.

Compare that to the damage caused by....

Alcohol
Tabbaco especially cigarettes
Pharmaceuticals
Binging

Something to think about

On those very rare occassions when I enjoy an mj treat, rather than missing out on life, that time is a time of truly enhanced living where I take in alot more than I usually do.
