WAY lower.
And in WA recreational marijuana use is legal also, so there is no longer supposed to be marijuana screening for non-federal jobs. Federal jobs are different because marijuana is not legal on a federal level, so their employees still cannot use or possess recreational or medical marijuana.post #287 of 15028/14/13 at 10:35amPeople literally smoke marijuana in the streets here guys...haha. They just abide by the rules of smokers (not within 50 feet of entrances or parks) and they are literally breaking no STATE laws.
And I just want to throw out there, I would never smoke pot or use it recreationally. It's not my thing.post #288 of 15028/14/13 at 10:37ampost #289 of 15028/14/13 at 10:50amAsh, I am so, so, so incredibly jealous. It's not legal in my state, so I run a huge risk anytime I partake. A friend of mine just got back from visiting family in Vancouver and had some awesome stories to tell us. It's not legal there, but apparently might as well be. Here, I'm rural and on the outskirts of the Bible Belt. I partake fairly regularly, to be honest. I've never lived in fear of being caught. If I ever left here though, it would be to a state where it's legal.post #290 of 15028/14/13 at 10:57am
Many thoughts/questions. I love the South. Atlanta is a blue city in the middle of a red state. Everyone fits in. Very liberal/queer/alternative. Still have medical mj q's, but I have to go to two meetings. Blah. I think I am too old to smoke and that is it. Used to bunches. Hate it now.
More after meetings. Grumble.. work getting in the way of studying/MDCpost #291 of 15028/14/13 at 10:57ampost #292 of 15028/14/13 at 10:58ampost #293 of 15028/14/13 at 11:12ampost #294 of 15028/14/13 at 11:25ampost #295 of 15028/14/13 at 11:41am
Okay, one meeting pushed back. So Ash, in pill form do they take out the mind related effects? Or do you at least get less stoned?? I think my other questions were covered!
Same here, Nicole. For me, a big thing is that I like to be completely in control. I hate the feeling that my mind is slow or confused or whatever and there is nothing I can do about it. However, I do love drinking. But it's totally different to me- I can control the speed, I know the percent alcohol that is in my drink. There's no dank wine vs skunk wine vs wine laced with some other drug. It's all wine/beer and I know exactly how it will effect me. Plus, I just get stoooopid now, and I hate that.
Other complaints: being sober and hanging out with a stoopid stoned partner = no fun.
Ah, but in my early to mid 20s... sigh.
Maybe if I was 100% no kids in the house at all I might try again. (DDC meetup planning committee, take note.)
OOOHH! I forgot! Big deal. We have a 16 yo. Who we busted smoking a year ago. So there is navigating that. Poor kid has an entire extended family full of people with drug problems, so I feel like I have to set an example of the alternative.
Sara, are you in denial that you are also an old lady? And no, the appointment is next Monday. Hard to get in to the ped derm apparently.post #296 of 15028/14/13 at 12:01pmI don't now the exact chemistry of it, but I can tell you that taking medical cannabis and smoking pot feel very different- it managed my pain, and relaxed my muscles and calmed my nervous system. But I wasn't "high". I was way more mentally there than when I took the Vicodin I was on at first. With my original narcotic pain pill prescription I had a ton of side effects- blurred vision, audiosensitivity, and sluggish bowels and bladder. And with the medical cannabis I had none of that, with the same pain relief, and my nausea from anesthesia and coming off the morphine drip was completely gone. I do not like smoking pot because it gives me the freak outs then makes me want to take a nap. I would drink Cuervo all night, but recreational marijuana is NOT my thing at all. But medical cannabis is very very different, probably depending on the form also. I had a tincture and pills.
I am, even as someone who doesnt partake, a huge supporter of legalization on a federal level and acceptance of medical marijuana in the medical community. In my opinion alcohol is far more damaging.post #297 of 15028/14/13 at 12:06pmApparently I didn't get all the soap out of my pump, it keeps clogging with bubbles.
I'm an old lady! I don't smoke and I refused to hang out with stoned people after I was 20, so I've been old for a long time. I'm a weirdo and decided drugs weren't for me when I was 14 and explained how to make s'mores to these two kids more than a dozen times in the course of an hour.
Jill, it's not the crown I want to see.post #298 of 15028/14/13 at 12:34pmpost #299 of 15028/14/13 at 1:31pm
See, I feel more out of control when I drink alcohol than when I smoke. When I smoke I feel like I'm in control of my thoughts and actions, it just makes everything feel better. I've never been big on alcohol, that's DH's vice. Although, I recently became a huge fan of hard cider and DH (who brews beer) made me some and it is delicious. I've been enjoying that quite a bit this summer. Smoking is a big part of our... culture here, I guess. I was in the "pothead" group in high school and have stayed friends with all of them. I wouldn't really call us potheads now though. I feel like potheads are the lazy people who do nothing but smoke. Wake and bake everyday and revolve their lives around it. For me, it's more like my "glass of wine" at the end of the day. I don't day-smoke unless I'm on vacation.
