I myself smoke pot (you all either know that or can tell by my current avatar) and I consider myself to be a moderate user (1-2 times a week). I have come across a few people who seem to act negatively towards this behavior. What is the general consensus?

I don't think that anyone should be judged for doing "drugs" (remove quotes for drugs such as coke and heroine). It's just as bad as judging someone for being black, or jewish, or old, or gay, or for having a third arm. Thoughts?

Voted the second option. As long as people don't try to force me into, I don't care, though the lingering scent can make me slightly nauseous.

Option #2 as well. I wouldn't do it myself, but I know people that do, and they're the same as everybody else: sometimes they're cool, sometimes they're okay, and sometimes they're morons.

I don't mind if they talk about it around me, as long as they're not smoking it around me in a closed space.

I voted the second option.

The majority of my friends either used to be heavily into drugs or still are. I used to care, but not anymore. It's their lifestyle choice, and while I don't agree with it I'll love them regardless.

I personally do not smoke pot. I have tried it once, and see no point in risking getting caught with it.

Most 'pot-heads' I've run into are so goddamn difficult to hang out with. They were so apathetic and lazy, it made me want to slap them in the face as to notion, 'Do something with your life you fucking idiot!'.

Its not really the fact that they smoke pot that upsets me. Its there attitude.

I smoke weed. I used to look down on it, but wasn't against it, because most of my friends did it. So, of course, I was offered to come along a few times. After some research and opinions from different people, I decided to give it a go.

Ever since then, every weekend I hang out and smoke. Maybe a day or two in the morning before school. Sometimes my boyfriend and I will skip it a weekend and it doesn't bother me. I see it more as a form of entertainment than anything.

But if you get into really dangerous drugs like coke, then you're taking a huge risk. I don't judge those people, because they do a different drug, but I've seen some freaky ass people on acid and coke, and it scares the hell out of me.

I don't smoke pot, but that's merely because the other people I am usually around do not smoke pot nor would they tolerate someone smoking around them. If I was often in company that deemed it acceptable, I probably would. So I have nothing against it at all.

I mean this as no offense towards you, Coca, but I think it's a stupid question to ask.

That's to asking how I feel about people who drink, or people who drive. (Obligatory "or both at once", unfunny Smokey reference)

I smoke occasionally, and I know a lot of others all through the spectrum of usage.

Those who use it moderately like me I have no problem with. The heavy users I have no problem with, with the exception of ones I consider friends, who have effectively fried their otherwise intelligent minds, and are largely fucked now.

Burnt out potheads are some of the most annoying people ever. Other than that, I don't care, although a lot of you like to pinpoint me with the stereotype that I hate people who do it. But you won't hear me preaching to anyone about it.
Would YOU be confident following the political party supported by fucking DRUG ADDICTS? Yeah, that instills a lot of confidence. "Hey guys, after we finish smoking up, let's go vote for Kerry."

Your signature points otherwise. But ah well, tis only opinion.

Also, I never really answered the initial question.

If I judge someone, its not because of what they do. Its because of why they do what they do.

Voted 3rd option. Getting tired of hanging around people whose biggest ambitions seem to be "get stoned". Lame. I want to hang around people who want more from life than to be in a constant stoned stupor.

I don't smoke myself, as I find the scent unpleasant and being in an altered state of consciousness doesn't tempt me enough to go through the trouble to do it. I've got nothing in principle against people who smoke, but people who talk about it constantly like it's their religion and call me a square for not liking it are obnoxious. Talking to someone about something that only interests you is just tactless. Also, it's annoying if people shirk their responsibilities to others to get high. My roommate, for example, won't do work of any kind if he's stoned.

The same is true for any other drug (or "drug," as Cola puts it). The guy at the party who only talks about the beer and how drunk he's getting and nothing else is a lame-o, and the schmuck who doesn't meet up with you because he stayed home with Cap'n Jack is a sad, sad man. So, I have nothing against weed-smokers, only people who are inconsiderate and irresponsible in its use.

I don't have anything against people who do, they're some of my favorite people.

I smoke pot, though not nearly as much as I used to. While I know people who have stigmas against it, or who mock those who do it, I don't feel prejudiced against either group. Each to his own, in this regard.

I'm more concerned about those who do smoke pot because they want it as a lifestyle. I'm not referring to those who are addicted to it, but those who seek a life on pot. While I personally believe the effects of pot use change depending on the person who is using it - some seem to show greater intelligence, among other positive effects while using it - it's not particularly wise to rely on a substance, or anything, to fuel your lifestyle.

I smoke pot on nearly a daily basis. However, I never get to the point that I'm hindered in any way. The way I see it is that it's much like smoking tobacco. I'm not addicted to it, as I have no problem with not smoking for any period of time. It relaxes me and actually makes me more eager to work. Yes folks, there are actually people out there who are motivated by pot.

I do have some problems with typical "stoners", though. These people who (like people here have mentioned) have no real ambitions in life aside from getting stoned. Now, I don't think that they're bad people or that they're living their life incorrectly, but I just don't enjoy hanging out with people who just want to sit around and get baked all the time.

I used to smoke pot but now I don't for no reason at all. A few of my friends that kept smoking religeously are complete losers now though...that would be a mental dependency affecting priorities and responsibility I guess.

For a while I was smoking at least 2 times a week which is more often then I'm comfortable with. So now I only do it if I'm going out for the night and it feels more of a 'get high' then 'get drunk' night. I just use it to complement a good time.

I get annoyed with people who can only think and talk about weed, with some of my friends it basically dominates every thing they do. For them weed comes first and everything else it second to it, this makes them boring people and boring people annoy the fuck out of me.

People who smoke pot have got it all wrong. Smoking meats is how its done. omg yah rite fag lol

Accually I'm allergic to pot. I'm one of those people that just doesn't care whether people do drugs.

If the laws were changed to legalize drugs, the dealers would still go to jail. Because they wouldn't have a tax number or seller's permit.
