Should pot be legal?

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Recently I came across an old friend who told me that they had applied for and received a medical certificate making it legal to smoke pot. I was somewhat surprised but also intrigued when invited to take a look at their hydropinic garden. So intrigued that I asked them if I could take pictures. Permission was granted and if you are a little curious about what I found out while researching you can read here

The article will explain the coloring. My questions this week are:

1) Have you ever tried pot? You don't have to answer this.

2) How would you feel about someone close to you smoking it?

My answers:

I haven't. I have a great fear of addiction. When prescribed pain medication I do not take the whole bottle but only enough to get through the worst of it then discard the rest. I have only taken pain medications about three times in my life; torn rotator cuff, ruptured ovarian cyst, and abcessed tooth with an exposed nerve. I had each of my four children natural.

I am leery of the use of this plant. I would prefer my family/friends avoided it, but once it becomes legal curtailing use will become even more difficult.

Thanks for participating in my TTQ and God bless! I do hope everyone has a prosperous, healthy, happy and blessed New Year!!

1) i tried smoking pot when i was in my early 20's. i knew all along the effects of marijuana but was curious what's the fuss was all about. i tried a few more times and enjoyed it. but my fear of "dying brain cells" was stronger than the nice, warm feelings it evoked.

2) i definitely do not approve. somebody close to me is a long-time marijuana smoker and it ruined his life.

I'm a lot like you Judy, I don't like to take any type of prescription drug if I don't have to and it's been years since I have. I rarely use over the counter pain killers either.

Years ago at a party I did take one hit off a joint, that was the first and last time. It isn't for me.

I would prefer that my family/friends didn't use pot even if it becomes legal.

I have tried once in college when I was in my early 20's, but the effect made me feel out of control, so I didn't like it..

If it becomes legal, I wish no one smoke around me or my children.

1. I'm lucky. I've never felt the need to try pot or any other type of drug. Writing and other forms of creative expression are my drugs of choice!

2. I don't judge people who feel the need to use pot. Some take it to help relieve pain and anxiety, others say it is less addictive than cigarettes and alchohol. I leave it up to each individual to decide. Though I think the healthiest route is to work on ones' mental health through yoga, meditation, and the like.

I have mix thoughts and feelings on this issue! I would not like my children to smell this pot when it's legal to smoke around people.

Happy New Year, Judy.

I'm like you. I've never tried this. I was offered it several times because I worked as a model and was in the scene where people took it frequently.

Also, I avoid pain tablets. When I got some strong ones after surgery, I only took so many as to get me through the first 4 days. I felt too dozy on it. I suppose my body isn't used to drugs.

I would certainly not like for my kids or family to take it.

Certainly, this pot cannot be made legal, as it leads to addiction that may end up one's life faster.

Somehow I missed this one! 1) I smoked pot several times in middle school, out of peer pressure. I didn't like it and never had any again. 2) I would be very bothered and would not want to be close anymore.
