Meh. It has its diehards down here in Texas. I came back down from Michigan where I had been growing my own/shopping at dispensaries for a bit, and it was like going back to the dark ages picking out massive amounts of seed and stalks half as thick as my finger. After the nostalgia kick has faded, it just plain sucks. Buying an "ounce" with maybe 14-15 grams of something you can smoke, a significant proportion of which is leaf that should be blasted into wax and not smoked like bud. But to each their own, I guess.

In any case, a whiff of that is going to be a lot better than a dumpster basking in the summer heat, an ad-hoc bum urinal or any other more "traditional" city street fragrance like so.

Those are pretty much in the same bucket of smells as pot. It's really disgusting

So, ranked one through three, which is the least offensive to you?

There's no distinction to me, I will literally stop breathing and hold my breath for all three until I've walked past

I know which one I'd "rank" first.

Rank.....rank.......the English language sure has a sense of humor sometimes.

On a hot summer day pot is the least offensive smell assailing my nostrils.

How about when your children smell the pot smoke on the street? Is pot smoke healthy for kids?

Maybe we should lower the weed age down so toddlers can get baked too. All the weed advocates say it is all around healthy and it's natural so why don't you feed your kids some brownies. According to every stoner pot is healthiest thing on earth so lets get the kids high too?

Anything that is natural is healthy so getting your toddlers ripped is healthy too.

I saw a guy on the train the other day sipping a bottle of Becks out in the open with no bag on it and to be honest that pissed me off more

I rarely smell weed and if I do it's only for a very short time as I'm walking on the sidewalk--no big deal. Of all the nasty garbage and poop smells in the city, the only reason I can think of that people make a big deal out of this smell is to use it as a platform to do their best Nancy Reagan impersonations and get all judgey.

I admit the smell isn't really great, but neither is it repulsive to me. Also, as it gets legalized in other states there are more and more cannabis products that are being highly refined which do not have that same smell when consumed.

Yet, when you walk behind someone smoking a cigar or cigarette on the street, you gladly inhale with relief that it's legal.

2nd hand marijuana smoke has almost no impact on you, other than knowing the other person is getting high, for you to get the slightest 2nd hand high you would have to be in a car with the windows closed.

You will smell it a lot more often in the coming year or two, with NJ set to legalize pretty soon, NY has to follow, otherwise all the profits/taxes will flow out of state, just like the many billions we lost to gambling in Atlantic City over the decades.
