The question was intentionally ambigious.

I'd eat it but I'll never suck combusted vegetable matter into my lungs again, I wish I'd never smoked, started when I was 17 and quit at 53. I don't think pot should be illegal, but it's just not acceptable to be at work while high; it should be treated as ETOH is, I wouldn't want my brain surgeon getting the munchies while operating.

You have no idea how high the probability is that your brain surgeon is either hungover, drunk or high on oxycodone or vicodin.

Approximately 10% to 12% of physicians will develop a substance use disorder during their careers, a rate similar to or exceeding that of the general population.1,2 Although physicians' elevated social status brings many tangible and intangible rewards, it also has an isolating effect when they are confronted with a disease such as addiction, which has a social stigma. This isolation can lead to disastrous consequences, both in delaying the recognition of and in intervening in the disease process, as well as in the attendant risk of death by inadvertent overdose or suicide.3

Yep, the inhalation of particulate matter is always a BAD, BAD idea. Like you, I wish I had never picked up the habit. It took me three tries to give it up. But, I went cold turkey (the only way to quit is to QUIT). And all the money I wasted...probably fund my son's college education (through grad school).

One of the things that bothers me about the opposition to cannabis is their tendency to cite silly stuff like pilots flying high or brain surgeons operating high. No one is advocating for that. It is a very bad idea to operate complex, heavy machinery under the influence. Intoxicants do not belong in the workplace. On the other hand, if I have to choose between a drunk and a stoned doctor the doper wins every time...but, I don't really want to choose. And no one under 21 should be allowed except for medical purposes (med in CO is 1...real medical purposes.

Hey, how did you feel getting ready to go to boot camp? I was thinking about that today. I recall I saw it as some sort of test of my manhood. I remember being VERY apprehensive. But, it turned out to be much easier than I anticipated. Not easy but not the impossible challenge I had been lead to expect. In some ways, OCS was more difficult physically (avoid former SEAL BMCM DI's). Any way, just asking. Hardly anyone talks about it...and the group able to talk about it gets smaller every day. Ever wonder about that?

I have already decided that, if Ohio does not legalize marijuana in the next 5 - 10 years, then I'll travel to Colorado for a month to enjoy the freedom and splendor and feelings of well being that herb offers. Now if IT will take me in is another story.

It was literally just a question. Everyone was talking about old age, I was just curious as to what people thought about it. That's all.

I know it's unlike me to not have some sort of vague motif behind my posts; but sometimes, a duck is just a duck.

For some reason I'd imagine if I spent time with IT I'd do a bunch of psychedelics with him.

I'd need your connections but I don't see why not.

Of course the deal breaker is, how do you smoke your weed?
