If I found out a guy I was dating smoked pot recreationally, I don't think it would blow my mind or freak me out in any way, but I would just say No- even though I think about smoking pot... It is a personal choice and a risk I am not willing to assume. However if it were legal I might rethink my position

Just because a person smokes a little pot doesn't mean they don't have productive hobbies or participate in productive activities. Society tends to label all pot smokers as lazy no motivation people.

I'm not talking about a complete stoner. Just someone that likes to smoke on the weekends some and maybe a little during the week after work or school.


Opinions?
I find that it impairs sexual performance to the point that I would not be interested in dating someone who smokes pot. I have nothing personal against people who do and believe that it should be up to each person to make their own choices, but it's just not part of my lifestyle.

If it is so clear to you, then define it. Put it into words.

I suspect you didn't understand the question. Must be all that reality TV.

Yea I was thinking the same thing.

Caffeine, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, birth control, alcohol, antibiotics - these are all drugs. Even the food we eat is loaded with various natural and synthetic drugs.

So obviously folks like yourself who claim they "Don't want drugs in my home" are talking about a particular, loosely defined type of drugs. I don't intuitively understand what makes a particular drug "good" or "bad" - Which leads me to ask - what type of drugs is it that so many people claim they don't want in their homes? Controlled substances? illegal substances? recreational substances? addictive substances?
I suspect people don't want illegal substances in their home because it opens them up to trouble.

I don't want to date anyone I know I'll probably have to bail out of jail sooner or later.

While these products may be labeled drugs or have addictive properties they are not considered illegal for recreational use as marijuana is.

What types of drugs is it that so many people do not want in their homes? Well, I would assume it is the type that is illegal or illegally obtained, could lead to their home and contents being confiscated (if high quantities found), result in jail time, etc...yeah, I can see why no one would want illegal drugs in their home.

Whether you agree with it or not there are just some drugs that are illegal and until the laws change this is our reality.

So if I'm understanding you correctly, your objection to MJ is more from the legal side as opposed to the type of social stereotypes to pot smokers? In that case, that's perfectly fair.

With that said, what would your stance be should MJ be legalized (and taxed, like tobacco)?

Unless it's legal, then I'm not interested in someone who takes drugs.
