@ Tanner, I agree on your last post. I used to smoke weed daily for about 6 years straight and it had a huge impact on my life, in more of a negative than positive way. I think smoking a joint once and a while is all good but I was smoking bongs 20 times a day, every day. I was always high, I had a hard time expressing myself, I had a hard time with my social life, I felt depressed, I was always paranoid, I got cranky very easy, I was lazy, and I ruined a lot of great relationships over it. After 6 years, I quit cold turkey and haven’t touched it in 3 and a half years. But like I said, I don’t think weed is bad at all, I think it could and does have beneficial effects but it should be taken in moderation.

The only drugs I intend on trying in the future, is DMT. :)

I think it may be because everyone is so open about everything :P

Because a lot of the people on this site are probably cool, and lots of cool people smoke weed.

Travis may be right. When people are open-minded, loving, and somewhat spiritual you think they smoke weed. Or maybe they are your feelings and it is impossible to tell why you feel the way you do. I dont smoke weed. I believe in aliens. <3

Yeah it my be that whenever I smoke I tend to find interest in many of these discussions because I find myself more open-minded.

Its likely because you, like almost everyone I know, project personality traits of yourself towards that people that you like and relate to. I imagine you probably like to smoke weed, and also like to talk about cool things. So because of this when you hear people talking about cool things you might guess that they like to smoke weed as well.

You may be on to something though, I have no idea how many of these people smoke weed but I would guess plenty. I havent smoked weed since I moved from new york city 8 months ago. I was looking to drop the habit and I enjoy my life now more without it.

I agree that a poll would be interesting! I personally don’t smoke weed and never have, but I’m open to trying it someday- I just won’t go out of my way for it and don’t want to try it unless I know the people that I’m around well.

In no way am I persuading you to try weed but if you decide to you need to be in comfortable social setting for it to me enjoyable. I can only say that I smoke with my tight knit of friends that all know my personality.

weed has been smoked for thousands of years in order to open minds & hearts. our ancestors discovered it LONG ago…it’s very egotistical to assume otherwise! so blaze it OUT! *<3*

I for one do not agree with Marijuana. I don’t really agree with alkohol either. A glass of wine every now and then.
All these great thoughts come to me while doing dishes or cleaning the apartment, vaccuming etc.
While baking I’ve never reached a higher thought then pondering about 0 and 1 and it’s difference only to wake up the next day. And well yeah 1 is still 1 and 0 is still 0.

It numbs then sences, numbs down your body control. Harder to focus (while not high) so it has to many bad side effects on the body.

SO I know you guys are gonna chop me up and hate me cuz that’s usually the reaction I get when saying this. Anyone else who doesn’t like maryjane?

Weed had proven its value over time, and as some of you know I am a huge fan of the herb. I believe the reason why cannabis(or any other drug) use among “High” people is greater then among ” average” population is the fact that educated folks are not scared to find their own truths and are capable of forming their own opinion instead of falling for the horrific governmental version of the effects of it. We chose to try and make up our own minds, also i expect in this environment we are more open about it anyways.

Peace

I used to smoke weed daily, mostly though just because my friends did and I though it was cool. (yeah i was one of those types of people). The effect weed had on my body was that it amplified my paranoia and depression, which is why I dont smoke anymore, it’s unpleasent for me. But I dont think weed is bad, just because it has mostly negative side effects for me doesn’t mean that it’s like that for everyone. People have different reactions to everything. It’s kind’ve like music, one person may like country while someone else absolutely hates it, but just because someone doesn’t like country music, it doesnt mean that country is bad.

Have I tried it before? Yes. Do I care for it? Not really. Do I still blaze up? No, not since last year.

I’ve done my share of experimentation (legal highs, questionably legal highs, illegal highs) and I’ve found that having moderation is the best way for me to enjoy anything good or of value.
I’m at the point in my life where I no longer feel the need to take something into my body to pull something amazing out of my mind. :)

Or it’s got nothing to do with this site but the internet in general and people are far more likely to openly discuss and admit to anything and everything (also known as keyboard courage) when they’re not face to face with others and can’t be eves-dropped on by random strangers when having a conversation with friends.
For the record I don’t smoke…well…anything but what other people want to do is there business and I’m cool with it, after all who am I am to judge.

Because we do! No just kidding, I actually only started smoking last year and I’m 21 now. I wouldn’t even consider myself a smoker because I’m only recreational with it. I have found though that most of my good friends with whom I have intelligent conversations with are all weed smokers.

@ johannes: I agree completely with what u say about weed and alcohol.

I don’t use, but I think it should still be legal. I don’t believe in laws that protect people from themselves. if ur dumb enough to kill yourself I say go ahead. (no offence intended to any one)

However:
I understand the potential for different effects that chemical can have on the body. And how the presence of any one chemical naturaly found in a human body can easily vary, hormones attributing to the different levels of irritably or humor. Given balances may be considered ideal to others. I happened to love my natural balance, but understand y some desire to alter theirs. As far as their balancing doesn’t affect mine, I see no problem with anything.

I wasn’t expecting so much attention from my question and I do thoroughly appreciate everyone’s response. I am new to High Existence and I am very interested in learning more of what it has to offer. I’ve learned a tremendous amount about the community especially that I can’t assume that open minded people are always the one’s that hit the reefer. I do find myself open minded, but never really express myself. Feel free to add me because I want to learn more about the you guys and your ideas.
