I think there is a “bigger picture” to life than getting high on illicit drugs. Even if they were legalized.
Some people need to mind their own business.
Yeah, but she could end up thrown in the pokey! BTW I hang out with a crowd similar to that, except none of them smoke pot (or if they do, they don’t brag about it).
Stereotype much? The majority of people I know that smoke are conservatives, many are professionals and all but one are quite intelligent...he pickled his brain on booze.
Thanks for the tip.
The rest get their Prozac legally.
They sure as hell got high when they voted for Odinga!
LOL. About 20 years ago, in my 20’s, some friends and I were sitting in a Middle Eastern restaurant. The group of 30-somethings and 40-somethings sitting on pillows at the next table were passing around a joint, laughing and talking about how they were schoolteachers who busted some students for doing the same thing. :-0
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social (and sometimes nostalgic) aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.
Freep mail me to be added or dropped. See my home page for details and previous articles.
Nothing personal directed at you. What people do in public or on the road is one thing but this is one of those “things” that’s a personal choice and a privacy issue on one hand and an area the government intrudes on the other.
Ever go to a Phish concert? Check out “ Shakedown Street “ in the parking lots . I would say 99% of the people at the concert were high on some sort of drug . From nitrous to acid . The lights went out , the lighters lit up, and in ten minutes all you could see was tops of heads in the floor level seating .
I generally agree, I guess my comment was aimed at those boomers who keep cramming their youth down our throats. I don’t care about the 40th anniversary of woodstock, etc.. It is like they keep trying to relive it over and over again. I know it is not all of them.
they are sharing just not with you. LOL, I am constantly surprised at how many of my business contacts still smoke a little green leafy plant. People you would never guess that do.

“Dave’s not here, man!”
Most of us baby boomer-types gave up drug use soon after getting a job, or after realizing that drug use was hurting our ability to do our jobs well and making us mentally ill, too. For, me it was the latter. I quit the devil weed over 20 years ago (after a dozen years of abuse) and have never touched it again. I wouldn’t even know where to get it at this point, nor do I care to know. The prospect of confused thinking and paranoia is not all that compelling. I’ll stick to my Scotch and cigars, thanks.
Doncha know, folks don’t get high, or catch a buzz on alcohol. It is only illegal drugs that folks get high on. Folks consuming alcoholic beverages are just being social.
I wholeheartedly agree about the Scotch and Cigars!!!
