marijuana?

Just thought a thread might be interesting given its increasing legality.

Personally I think the legality part is good because potheads tend to be a lot less violent than drunks (and it's objectively a lot healthier for you), but never much liked it myself -- I'm 50 years old and have probably consumed THC-containing substances 20 times in my life, it just makes me want to read a book and fall asleep. Lots of Cali friends (especially middle aged women) swear by it for reducing anxiety etc. Any partakers want to weigh in?

While I have never liked it I know some highly functional potheads, major issue is that today's hybrid sorts are not really old "boomer's" MJ. Way, way stronger.

I also don't like it, tried a few times and the effects were... meh. Too much turmoil inside my head to even read a book afterwards, so just sleeping for me, or at least trying. After alcohol I'm at least still functional.

From a paramedic point of view, I have seen far too many incidents where lack of situational awareness led drivers to wander out of a lane, causing an incident or folk just walking into the road because they want to be on the other side regardless.  Having said that, far too many folk who are not partaking do that so a comparison is a bit more difficult than bald stats.

Yup, a lot of older boomer friends tried pot when it was 'legalized' in Colorado and the difference in strength shocked them. Most became fans of low dose edibles.

For sure -- I'm only 50 years old but if you read any novels from the 1960s, it's like "then hippie protagonist sat under a tree and smoked a joint, and that chilled him out a little." Most of my yuppie lady friends are on the edible team as well.

I’ve literally done acid, coke, and what apparently was was heroin in one weaken just a few years ago. I honestly never liked pot but I occasionally do it to past out. And I’m over 45.

I don’t think restricting drugs works, personally.

Ok, I feel I should explain the heroine, I got drunk at what I realized after the fact was a drug deal gone wrong at a dive bar and my roommate (old married friends from college) grabbed some random shit that I subsequently snorted. I tested positive for opiates after so I assume it was heroin-ish. Honestly, pretty chill. Would not inject though.
