    That doesn't make alcohol good. However, in moderation, I can't say it's that bad either.

    Marijuana is in a different boat there.
    It really isn't. As a matter of fact, I would bet that people can smoke more marijuana and have their wits about them than alcohol.

    Nor did I or my friends. Hell, my kids wouldn't have a problem either. We entertain a lot and we have tons of liquor in our cabinet.

    I know I can. Except for the munchies and an occasional giggle fit, I am far more in control the random times I smoke than when I drink (to any kind of excess).

    One of my friend's parent would put marks on the bottles so he would know how much they had, and my friend would just add water to it. Not sure if she got caught or not. I imagine if she added TOO much water, someone would be really disappointed and bound to catch on.

    The last time I indulged, I was in my early 20s, but I've certainly done both, alcohol and marijuana, and I know that I can function much better on marijuana than I ever could on alcohol, but I'm a lightweight anyway.

    It's my one vice I kept over from my youth. And once my husband stopped playing hockey for pay, he joined me. It's relaxing - and we only do it when the kids aren't home. I'd rather smoke than drink any day. I feel better then, and the next day.

    Mr. B & I had a brief getaway to Jamaica and just got back Wednesday. Talk about good smoking.

    I don't really see any difference between that or having a drink after work.

    I once got so high I was seeing cartoon characters. Never done that with alcohol.

    I've never heard of such a thing happening with marijuana and would think that is a very rare occurrence.
