weed?

Yes or no?

Yes:
a. Why?
b. How many times?

No:
a. Why not?

Nope. I'm too young firstly, and secondly, I'd rather not smoke anything that could potentially harm my body. And no, I do not judge anyone who smokes weed. It's their decision, and its none of my business to tell them what they should and shouldn't do.

Nope, I remember getting my mother to quit smoking when I was younger, and I succeeded with that. But as for me being a smoker? Yuck, I hate stuff that potentially harms by body.

And nope, I wouldn't judge anyone who smokes.

Yes, 4 or 5 times. I wanted to try it, so I did. I enjoy it, but I wouldn't go out and obtain it personally. If I'm offered socially maybe I'll take someone up on it, but it's definitely not any sort of habit.

I proudly answer yes to this question!

a. Why?

I don't have a particular reason for it, but if I had to give one I can say that it helps me get to sleep at night.

b. How many times?

I'm an every day smoker. Started smoking casually in 8th grade the summer before I began my freshman year in high school (I'm 21 now) and it has been in my life since. I don't think about it much because I've been doing it for so long it's a big part of my lifestyle and social environment, so it seems normal to me.

Never thought I would see this topic here on PC! But weed is something I feel should be discussed openly without judgement. I won't go into a big "Legalize it!" rant but I enjoy having legitimate conversations about it. Some people pass judgement, but I try not to give them too much reason to do so. Sure I love to chill really hard and be lazy, and maybe I fit some stoner stereotypes at times.. but I also work two jobs and go to college so it hasn't had any negative effect on my life at all. I'm also a friendly person with what I consider good standards and values, so I don't think anyone can fault me just because I smoke.

I like weed and pokemon. Don't judge me for it :]

No.


a. Why not?
I don't like to label, but I'm generally one to consider myself a straight-edge. It's been like this since I was 12 or so, and I originally thought it was not worth getting in trouble over. It is legal in my state now, but I'm still not doing it because first I'm not old enough, and second I like the idea of being clean and I guess pure.

b. Do you judge people who do?
No. I don't think it's wrong to do. If that were the case I would hate much of my family that is similar to my age. As long as you are happy doing it, and don't try to shove it into my face, then whatever in the world you do is perfectly fine with me.

Of course not

why not
I am not that cool or stupid enough to try it

do I judge people who do it

No not really it is their chose to do what they want in their life

Synerjee
March 2nd, 2013, 12:23 AM
No.

Why not?
It is part of the values that have been instilled in me. I have been taught never to smoke any type of substance, whether tobacco or weed, and that these things are harmful to my body. I would never even dream of polluting my body with things that would cause damage to it in the long run.

Do you judge people who do?
I try my best not to.

Cosmotone8
March 2nd, 2013, 05:38 AM
No, I don't smoke. I wouldn't want to harm my body, and its also just part of my standards and values. I know I'm not supposed to do those things, my parents, church and almost everyone else in my life advises against, so why would I do it? It doesn't make any sense to me.
I feel sorry for people who smoke weed, but I'm not going to judge them for it or tell them to clean up there act. They're free to do what they want.

That's what it's like for me too.

March 2nd, 2013, 07:47 AM
I haven't tried weed partly due to a lack of opportunity, but mostly because it just doesn't appeal to me. I don't like the idea of not being 100% in control of my body/actions (which is why I go out and get drunk BUT STILL) and I don't see the need for it when I'm able to enjoy myself plenty without it. I don't judge other people for using it though, I can't understand why they'd want to and I've got no issue with that, it's just not something that I'm personally interested in trying.

Crux
March 2nd, 2013, 08:35 AM
No.

And I won't be judgin'. If you wanna be smoking weed then as long as you don't pester me to try I don't really care.

Sweets Witch
March 2nd, 2013, 08:42 AM
No, but I do judge harshly because the majority of bad events in my life have involved weed - a death, the destruction of my family, and physical and emotional abuse, to name a few.

I've never seen the good side of weed and I refuse to believe there is one. All I've ever seen it do is make someone angry enough to shoot an innocent girl, get my brother arrested, and turn my friends from decent people to shells of their former selves who only aspire to mow lawns and smoke for the rest of their lives.

Livewire
March 2nd, 2013, 08:48 AM
I'm quite fond of my lung functions, so I've never smoked and don't plan too. Bad experiences with family members who smoked and all died from cancer(s), etc.

March 2nd, 2013, 08:57 AM
I'm a fairly regular smoker, usually when other people around me are smoking. I tend not to do it on my own, so I'd say that it's a kinda social thing for me. Someone's gonna read this and immediately equate it to peer pressure and that's not what I'd say it is at all. It's more a mutual decision than anything else - the same way as how people with housemates tend to choose to cook together rather than separately. It's just pretty nice if you're with friends who are into it to light up and chill a bit. Of course, if they weren't into it, then I'd not do it; that'd just be kinda awkward for everyone. But yeah basically when I'm around other people who smoke weed I tend to do it.

As for the 'how many times' question, it's not something I keep count of haha. Done it fairly regularly for a good number of years now so... quite a few, I guess! d:

KriegStein
March 2nd, 2013, 08:59 AM
No I havent. Not realy interested and none of my friends are interested in these sort of things.
And no I dont judge people. I dont think its my job to do so.

Sydian
March 2nd, 2013, 09:11 AM
I've never smoked weed and don't plan on it. It just doesn't really interest me. I know people that do and I don't care if they do or not. It's not harmful. Weed, that is. Cigarettes are a different topic.

LilJz
March 2nd, 2013, 09:20 AM
I smoked weed once, and I smoked a couple of cigarettes, when I was younger. Although I stopped now. Because since I do Parkour, freerunning and martial arts it would really destroy my lungs which I need to be in very healthy condition to perform to my max.

Cassino

No.

b. No.

⊗Slenderman⊗
March 2nd, 2013, 10:24 AM
Nope.
I know people whose lives have been totally wrecked by drugs, including family members. I'd rather not end up like them. Besides, addictive personalities run in my family.

Esper
March 2nd, 2013, 10:34 AM
No. I don't do drugs in general. Addiction runs in my family and is more or less responsible for two of my cousins dying. I'm playing it safe. It just isn't a good idea for me to do things I could get addicted to. (And, yes, you can form hard-to-break habits with anything and that's close enough to an addiction in my book.)

I try not to judge. There are far worse things out there. Honestly though, it is a little difficult for me not to feel somewhat disappointed in someone I know. I know people have their reasons, but it's just a feeling I can't easily shake. I do my best to keep in under wraps though.

Overlord Drakow
March 2nd, 2013, 10:48 AM
Twice. Only reason why I'm interested in smoking weed is because of the positive effect it has on my respiratory system. But yeah it's not something I can really do that often (don't have resources to obtain it regularly) but if I did have access to it, then I'd smoke it when I can.

As for judging other people, I generally have a disliking towards people who smoke cigarettes because of the damage they do to themselves and the people around them. As for people who smoke weed, I don't really care either way as long as they don't do anything stupid or whatever.

Dakota
March 2nd, 2013, 10:55 AM
No, never plan to. I promised someone I wont, simple as that.

As for do I judge? Again no, cause it's not my problem. My best friend did it for the first time, and I didn't care. It was kinda funny, actually.

Kura
March 2nd, 2013, 10:58 AM
No, it's not something that appeals to me and I find it distasteful.

I try not to judge people but I've had bad experiences with people who are stoners. I know not everyone is the same, so that's why I don't like to judge, but like I said, I can't really help feeling that distaste when someone tells me they do because of the memories it brings up.

ChocolateCrunch
March 2nd, 2013, 11:00 AM
Yes, I did. And nearly choked.
a. I thought it'd be cool, but it wasn't. I just ended up nearly choking to death.
b. Once.

Brynjolf
March 2nd, 2013, 12:54 PM
weed?

Yes or no? No.

a. Why not? I have 1) no money 2) I'm too chicken to do it 3) too young 4) my parents would hate me.
b. Do you judge people who do? No. I would like to myself.

awolfsquared
March 2nd, 2013, 02:23 PM
No. Haven't smoked weed or done any type of drug for that matter. Why? It's my morals and value mainly. Growing up I was taught by my parents and school that smoking can be harmful to your body. In my sophomore year of high school I had to carpool to school with two people who smoked cigarettes while driving. And knowing how that even those cigarette greatly affected them, I know how much something like weed would affect me. And I rather not do something that harms myself or maybe others in the process if it would become an addiction.

Do I judge others who do it? I try hard not to judge anyone who does, though I do feel bad for them and I'd be worried if someone I know well becomes addicted to it, then I'd try to help them. However , I don't judge anyone who smokes weed because it's their choice.

Naturalles
March 2nd, 2013, 02:27 PM
I would never smoke, because I know what happens to myself and people around me and I don't want it. And I don't judge people without knowing them, I'd rather be worried about friends being smokers.

EGKangaroo
March 2nd, 2013, 03:16 PM
No, I don't smoke weed, mostly because I am too young to do so yet. It's legal to use it where I live, and I have considered trying it at least once just to experience it, figure out how it feels. I can only say I've been high once in my life, and that was in a hospital, when they had me drugged so they could painlessly remove a couple of drains from my body after I had heart surgery three years ago. It's weird, really. The entire room started spinning, and even in my high, I was able to think and reason with what I was experiencing, it wasn't at all like I had a decrease in my sagacity, but seeing all kinds of weird hallucinations obviously prompts you to start laughing at how weird the world is.

I don't try to judge other people who want to use weed for recreational purposes. To be frank, I think tobacco is more damaging to a person's health than weed, but I am very concerned with people when they start at too young an age. If they're still developing their bodies and their minds, then taking any drug is going to seriously arrest their brain development. I hate seeing 15, 14, or heck, even 13 year olds smoking a cig while cycling to school and being proud about it too, 'cause they're so cool breaking the law and killing their lungs at that young an age. It's hard not to judge those kinds of people.

I do not think recreational drug use should be criminalised for that matter. It's just giving criminal organisations the opportunity to profit from a whole market being underground, addicts can't go anywhere for help because that'd mean admitting to committing a (victimless) crime, and too often, the drugs that are sold in the illegal circuit are multiple times more dangerous than legal substances. I have indeed heard of some very scary stories of people finding that they had blunts that were laced with meth in countries where it is illegal.

Bottom line, if it's done in a controlled environment, then who cares?

ShinyUmbreon189
March 2nd, 2013, 03:22 PM
Yes I've smoked it so many times that I've probably smoked pounds upon pounds through my smoking career. Nothing beats the feeling of having a hard day at work lightin up some bowls to relax. I can function no problem while blown and don't see the big deal of smoking it. Lol at all the propaganda the government creates with it. "Oh it causes anxiety, stress, depression, blah, blah, blah." Uhh, no it doesn't I suffered from anxiety WAAAY before I smoked this stuff and it literally cured it, it's a medicine not ether that slowly burns all your organs. I don't smoke it no more and my anxiety is starting to creep up on me again, may start lighting up again.

Nope I don't judge, if your smoking it around me, you better add me to the rotation so I can make it to Mars before NASA.

But don't be quotin me on my decision and thoughts cuz It's not up for discussion! It's my body and I shall do what I damn well please, if you got a problem then you're too judgmental.

droomph
March 2nd, 2013, 03:28 PM
No, because I live in a rich white neighborhood, and I can't hook it up, and even if I did, lazy is a much better feeling than looking for stuff.

I don't judge anyone who does, but the target demographic, I can't help but judge them on other things (like, their face is stupid).

No:

b. Do you judge people who do?

And whatever else that you want to add.

No.
Why not: I do not need something like that inside of my body where it can harm me.
I don't necessarily judge people who smoke weed or anything of the sort, it's their choice and theirs alone. Especially if it the very substance that is a release to them, I won't intervene at all.

Ephemeral Euphoria
March 2nd, 2013, 06:17 PM
Son I do it regularly ever since my senior year of high school to where I lost count long ago.

Granted though I toned down a bit on the stuff after graduating since I had work and all to do. On the plus side I get the weekends off and there's no way I could have gone through the plotline of KH2 sober now lol.

Guy
March 2nd, 2013, 06:53 PM
Never have and likely never will. Personally, I've never had the desire to smoke weed nor do I have any interest in trying it anytime soon. Also, the opportunity to smoke weed has never actually presented itself to me. So there's that.

In general though, I've never had any interest in smoking anything, especially not cigarettes; definitely not cigarettes. Not to mention, my parents would probably kill me if they ever found out I smoked weed no matter how old I might be.

edit: Oops, forgot to answer the other part of the question.

If I see other people doing it, or if I know my friends smoke weed, I don't typically judge them for doing it. When people smoke weed and proceed to do something really dumb though, then they're just asking to be judged.

d00bt00b
March 2nd, 2013, 07:07 PM
No.
I never have, and will try my best never to do so. The idea of not being in control
of my actions does not appeal to me, and I feel like it's in my best interests not to do it.
I try my best not to judge anybody who does it, as it is their decision, I just do not think
it is either a cool or smart thing to do.

twistedpuppy
March 2nd, 2013, 07:28 PM
Have I ever smoked weed? No, but I've been offered.

Why not? Two reasons; I don't trust myself enough to be under the influence of something and my lungs can hardly take in breathable air.

Do I judge people who do? I judge how they smell afterwards. Seriously, that stinks more than tobacco. >.<

GolurkIsDaBomb
March 2nd, 2013, 07:37 PM
No I never have smoke weed

A) There's really no point for me to. :/

B) I used to be a bit judgywhen I was younger, but since pretty much everyone does or has, I don't judge people for it. If they smoke to be cool, or think they're cool because then I'll judge them for that, although it's not their use of the drug I'm judging.

Hmm.. yeah.. My life was destroyed because I couldn't stop at just smoking pot.

So yes. I have.

And I hope I never go back.

I remember.

Reading through this thread makes me both happy and miserable. I've had a very, very rocky relationship with drugs over the course of my life. I've been sober for four years and promise all of you that I'd be dead ten times over if I didn't get sober exactly when I did.

I've smoked plenty of pot; much more than I care to have, honestly. The problem arises when A) it becomes a crutch, and B) when it leads you to places you shouldn't go.

I don't believe that there's a problem with THC as a substance, but at least 3/4 of the people currently smoking/vaping shouldn't be and will someday wish they hadn't gotten started. Addiction doesn't only apply to addictive substances. Behavior and lifestyle can both become addictions and their consequences are just as dire and dreadful as more traditional addictions.

For me, pot lead directly to other places that I desperately wish I'd never visited. I lost 5 years of my life, every friend I had ever made, and several people I truly loved. Did weed kill them? No, absolutely not. Would they have died if they never hopped on the bandwagon? No. They'd likely still be alive and well.

I'm not going to judge any of you for your choices, but I'll certainly judge you for the content you post here. "I was drunk/high when I posted that" isn't an excuse for anything, so using it as one should be reason enough to look carefully at your current situation.

CarcharOdin
March 2nd, 2013, 09:32 PM
1) No, I haven't smoked it. Nor have I ever ingested it in any other way (yes, there are other ways (often healthier ways) to get high on weed besides smoking it.

2) No, not really. I really just don't care.

Sammi
March 3rd, 2013, 04:02 PM
I tried it once at a party, just for the sake of trying it. It's never something I'd buy and do regularly. If I want mind-altering substances, I'd rather just drink. At least that's legal and easy to obtain, although still dangerous.

I don't judge people if they do it. Their life, their business. On the whole, I'm pretty apathetic about what people do with themselves.

Lucid-Acid
March 3rd, 2013, 06:33 PM
Yes. Oh yes.

a. Boredom! I tried it the first time when I was 17 and just had fun with it. It never controlled my life or led to anything else, like with most things people do for fun, it's just kinda a waste of money. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and although I don't anymore, I think there are way more horrible things people do to their bodies with no social stigmas attached.

b. A lot.

Brendino
March 4th, 2013, 02:50 AM
I've never bothered to try smoking marijuana, and don't have any plans to (partly because I see no benefit in it, and partly because it's still technically illegal). In my eyes it's a lot more harmless than cigarettes or alcohol, and while I believe it should be legalized, regulated and taxed, it still wouldn't make me any more likely to try it if that happened.

As for judging people that do, I really try not to. Sure, I think it's stupid when I see middle school kids doing it, but in the grand scheme of things it's none of my concern. The same goes for anyone else I see doing it- if it isn't affecting myself and others in a negative way, they can do as they please.

Caelus
March 4th, 2013, 09:37 AM
Yes

a. Why?
Peer pressure, but only because I didn't see anything wrong with it (Cigarettes, on the other hand...). I literally did nothing while under its influence and felt better than I did when I was drunk. It probably depends on the person but to me it wasn't addicting at all and I can live without it.

b. How many times?

Twice. Haven't smoked it since last summer. Don't really have the urge to either.

Renpuu
March 4th, 2013, 10:58 AM
No I have not tried weed and I have had people around me who offered me it and I declined. I actually didn't want to be in the same room whilst they smoked weed since I dislike the general aroma it brings.

I've tried a cigarette like once and it didn't do anything..maybe I didn't smoke it properly, but either way, it's an expensive habit which causes harms on others due to second hand smoke. Not to mention the smell of cigarette smoke just ruins furniture, clothes etc.

I've never been interested in smoking, I drink alcohol occasionally when I am at home or out with friends for a special event but I would never encourage anyone to smoke, do drugs or drink alcohol since it's all unhealthy if it becomes addiction.

I would even me class myself as drinking energy drinks a bad habit. But I enjoy them too much and that could be seen as a addiction X_X.

I have nothing against people enjoying themselves, as long as they aren't selfish enough to make others suffer with second hand smoke or getting so addicted to drugs that they move onto heavy stuff and become the stoner who steals money to afford their habit.

Sodom
March 5th, 2013, 03:39 AM
No I haven't, because I'm the son of a cop and I was always taught that only dirty low-lives do things like that. I always thought I was better than it.

I don't judge people for that anymore. I look at the world through my own eyes rather than my parents and I'm actually starting to think it's something I'd be willing to try one day should the opportunity ever arise.

Seki
March 5th, 2013, 05:08 AM
No, I have never smoke because I am too young to buy those cigarretes, but if given the chance, I would at least TRY at least one time, to understand how people feel when they smoke, but I think I might regret that if I get addicted after trying once, so I think I would most probably not smoke cos its bad for your health you know and its so darn expensive in my country... $10 per packet which is around... $8 USD per packet... EVERYWHERE IN MY SMALL COUNTRY! I rather spend on other things than cigarettes. If it was cheaper, I might try, hehe.

March 6th, 2013, 02:37 AM
No and I never plan to.
Smoking and drinking are things that I HATE the most.
I don't really give a damn about people who do it if they are not close to me so I could smell the smoke or see them drink, in that case, I either cover my nose and mouth or simply go away as far as possible.

daigonite
March 6th, 2013, 05:20 PM
Yes, I've smoked weed once. I would smoke more but obtaining it is a huge pain in the ass. I really did enjoy it though.

I really don't see the problem with weed. It's not addictive, and the effect doesn't last super long :/

Never had, never will. If people want to smoke it, it's their business, though Id prefer them to not smoke it around me.
