    Over the years I've noticed that most of the regular marijuana users that I've known toke practically every day, or at least a few times a week. So I'm basing my vote on that definition of a "regular user". They are slightly intoxicated all the time. Even if they haven't smoked any dope that day. I don't know what they call it nowadays but back when I was younger we used to refer to this phenomenon as "permabuzz".
    lol permabuzz.. even the good stuff isn't permanent and will usually wear off within several hours. If someone's an extremely heavy smoker, it could be longer. But that is unusual.

    I don't care if my doctor smokes pot or has a few drinks after hours. If he gives me good, professional care, his private life is his own... up until he walks into the examining room reeking of weed or stinking like a brewery.

    Oh, and for those who love to generalize, I only smoked pot once, decades ago, didn't like it and haven't done it since. So I'm definitely a "non-pothead" voting "yes." :mrgreen

    Actually THC is fat soluble. Therefore whenever you use marijuana some of the THC is stored in your body's fat cells for a long period of time.

    It's stored in the fat cells, but the effects wear off, and don't last. Though it will show up on a drug test.

    I guess if he's cruisin on some benzos, that's no prob. I'd trust a doc who smoked a doob the night before instead of a pill popping dope who can't handle anxiety any day. Pill heads are the real losers.

    Anyone who feels the need to inject or ingest, smoke or snort anything to feel better about themselves is a real loser.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No, they simply like to relax and socialize, enhancing their pleasure and reducing their inhibitions a bit. Do you eat only bland foods simply for sustenance or do you prefer to spice it up a bit and enjoy the enhanced flavor? Do you read only reference materials to educate yourself or do you indulge in fantasy, fictional works simply for your pleasure? Not all play and relaxation is non productive, all work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy.

    Anyone who feels the need to make broad sweeping generalizations or spout stereotypical anti drug nonsense in order to gain a false sense of self importance is a real loser.

    Especially the people who excuse their pill habits while condemning people who use "a different brand" of drug to prison. There are too many of these types of hypocritical freedom haters influencing legislation these days.

    Or upon simply praising his own righteous behavior.
