    I saw Dans post below regarding legalizing marijuana and decriminalizing it and got to thinking. I don't currently do any illegal drugs, mainly cause they are illegal, not due to hang ups about them. I couldn't quite figure out if I'd start smoking weed if it were legal though.

    I drink booze for the high, not cause it tastes good...so I just wondered about the rest of you. Would you smoke weed if it were legal where you live?

    You don't have to "out" yourself with a written post, just vote in the poll if you prefer. That way nobody knows how you voted, but we still get some honest answers.

    I've gone for a no. I gave up smoking last month (6 1/2 weeks with no fags, sorry, smokes!) so that's my main reason. But if you wanna bake me a space cake, an Amsterdam special, then be my guest! :lol:

    Posession of weed for personal use is already legal over here in the UK.

    However, that doesnt make me any more inclined to smoke it. I didnt before and dont intend to now.

    As Jen mentioned in another post, nowadays every 17yr old seems to think its cool to stroll through town with a lighted joint.

    I thought about the medicinal effects as well. Dunno if it would help with my pain either, but the side effects would be less serious than the pain killers I currently take.

    Thus far I'm still undecided on the issue....... 8)

    Perhaps a bit more "fact finding" is in order? :wink:

    I'm kinda the opposite... so my yes vote means I wouldn't stop smoking if it became legal.

    I know that in Canada, it has been legalized ( in certain cases) for medical usage. Not sure if it works for MS, but if it dose you could always come here to fill your prescription

    It should be legalized just for the revenue (taxes) it would generate, but personally I would not smoke it for the fact that the one stupid time I tried it (and unlike Clinton I did inhale) I got very sick and I got scared because it seemed like everything I did or said that I had done it before and I didn't like that feeling. I wished I had never done it.

    I wouldn't waste my time or money on it.
    Had a great beer buzz once and had some weed. Fell asleep. That sucks!

    ok.....lil help here, can someone give me their best argument as to why booze is better than weed if they are both legal to use?

    At one time booze was illegal in this country too...some booze still is illegal in this country.

    Anybody out there feel like putting on that thinkin cap and providing some stimulus to the conversation......no flames please, that's not what I'm talking about.

    I wouldn't say booze is better than weed. And I wouldn't say weed is better than booze. My point was, for my hard earned cash, for me, weed is not something I would buy. The "high" I got on weed was not the happy drunk I am with booze. I would assume everyone experiences weed as differently as everyone experiences alcohol. That may be naive but there you have it.
    I don't care if it's legal or not. It's legal to buy rum and I don't. Why? Because I don't like it.
    And by the way, booze was never illegal in my country. No prohibition here though I do have friends whose ancesters got rich on a lot of crime committing Americans. :wink:
