Incorrect. Can someone get addicted to marijuana? Sure. People can get addicted to anything. But weed is not as addictive as caffeine. It takes a lot of effort to get addicted to it.

Sugar addictive, fat is addictive; people can addicted to anything. Some people are addicted to exercise.

Mental illness notwithstanding, just the fact that smoking pot RUINS a man's sexual performance ought to be enough to ban it to hell for all eternity.

I bought my vaporizers online several years ago. Vaporizers turn regular dried marijuana into vapor instead of smoke. The cartridges are what are harder to find, although still not hard. Normally the same person who gets you regular pot can get the cartridges too. There's not all the choices there are in stores, either.


The big problem with the cartridges in non-legal states is the Chinese have flooded the illegal market with counterfeits, so you think you're getting the name brand, box looks the same, but it might have pesticides and other toxins because it hasn't passed safety standards the way legal cartridges do. Another good reason to legalize everywhere sooner rather than later.

That isn't true at all. My honey still performs just fine at 52 and he's a long time smoker I've never dated a guy who had these issues from pot. I have had issues with drunk men who can't perform, but never high.


As an aside, my honey does not have "man boobs" either, nor do any of our male friends, with the exception of one who is obese.

Nope, they can't and they won't - why? Because most of the anti-pot crowd drinks alcohol, at least occasionally, and would never admit they're just as bad as us! Actually worse, since alcohol destroys WAY more lives than pot ever could.

They think that they've become more interesting as persons, but that effect works only on other users. They're all losers and can't function in their natural, undrugged state.
I don't think it makes me more interesting, lol. And I'm certainly not a "loser," nor do I need it to function... in fact I only use it when I'm done with everything important for the day, which includes working at my very non-loserish well-paying professional job. You need to grow up, and join the 70%-ish (possibly more now?) of Americans who support legalization. You're in the minority now, and for good reason. Most people have woken up, and realize the propaganda is just that. Propaganda.

Do you support keeping alcohol legal? What about prescription drugs? Have you used either in your life? If so, you're a bigger loser and obviously inadequate and unhappy with your life; just based on what you're saying, since alcohol and many prescription drugs are way more damaging than cannabis. For the record, I would never say any substance is without its risks. But you can minimize those risks by not smoking it, and like anything else, exercising moderation. I am not unhappy with myself or my life, in fact my life is pretty good these days. Perhaps better than yours, based on how unhappy you always seem on here! Relax and take a toke - it might do you some good.

Not true? Methinks you're either settling or delusional. But then there are women who like low-intensity, endless diddle-fests so if that's the case, more power to you.

Rude.

Pot doesn't affect my husband either, and my standards are pretty high.

I think it is more person specific, DH's drive has always been strong, and if he smokes pot that doesn't change.... too bad cause that could be handy. "I wanna binge watch Empire tonight, here... smoke this.." /lol


Though I'll forgive you for your attitude, obviously you are not happy with your husband and his... performance. That could make a girl grumpy.
