|Basically, those who chose to partake weren't much interested in hanging out with those who didn't. Their good time revolved around doing it together, so if you weren't doing pot, you weren't a part of that group.
As someone who doesn't, I think it's more the other way 'round. It's not that I don't want to be casual friends with people who smoke, or even good friends. It's not that I don't want it to be legal. I do.
It's that as long as it's illegal, you can bet your bottom dollar I'm not going to be anywhere near it and risk my kids, my life of travel, my livelihood. And since I don't feel it's appropriate to grill new friends on whether they keep a stash at home or grow or not, I don't end up spending much time with people who use illegal drugs, however casually.
I'll do it where it's legal.
I do not have a problem with their choice. I just don't choose to take that particular risk at this time. There are more important civil rights issues I'm willing to stand up for but this is not one of them.
