    I know two friends who are the quintessential stoners. They are in there [sic] 30's and own their own homes, and one supports his mother. They are successful, one owns his own business, the other is a brilliant scientist with a masters in marine biology, they make more than enough money to by a constant supply of weed, beer and pizza.
    And there is every possibility that they may have been more ambitious, more motivated, have a greater work ethic and be more independent if they had not smoked.

    That would be a bad thing. We have too many CEO's of big corporations already...

    I think you completely missed the point of my post.

    We cannot make a call one way or the other on the evidence available, and it is inconsequential since it is purely anecdotal, just as is the post I was responding too.

    Edit: And there is every possibility that they may have been more ambitious, more motivated, have a greater work ethic and be more independent if they had not ate all that pizza.

    Are you insinuating our collegue doesn't partake in intoxicants out of fear? If he doesn't need them, desire them, isn't curious about them, and is having a good life without them, I say more power to him/her.

    I think the smartest route is to avoid them altogether. Some folks can and some folks can't.

    Can't miss something you never had I suppose.
    Well, maybe not fear of smokin a little weed, but maybe a little fear of taking a chance or two. How could anyone read about mind expansion, and not even be a little bit curious, and have to try it at least once. Fear may be a little strong, maybe apprehensive would be better. I use to bang my self around pretty good in my younger years. Nowadays I just think back on it, and grin. But I do have it to think back on. ---that said, let me be clear, that I don't promote the use of anything, but I do believe in at least trying things before you condemn them. I ate octopus---once !!!

    At what point do excepions invalidate the rule? I imagine there are some like me who performed well under the influence. I know there are many others who performed well when not under the influence but would get high when the were studying or performing. To my mind there is a range of stupidity and performance associated with getting high. There are some things I will not do when high - any type of motor coordination including cooking and driving.

    Speaking for myself, there is a time and place for getting buzzed. Granted, it might open your awareness in a classroom where hightened awareness is necessary for the individual to keep up. But, across the board, I think it's safe to say that pot is no friend to study and comprehension and retainment of said studies.

    For example, I just love catching a buzz and learning Pink Floyd tunes. But ask me a week later what I played and you'll most likely get a "duh..."
    My habit was Rush. But I agree...I cannot read when high.

    I read all the f'ing time...and I've never been high.

    I wonder if I would lose all interest in books if I became so, temporarily?

    Just like people who drink and drive - yes. The penalties should be the same and you CAN be arrested for driving under the influence. Your point?

    a couple of other things grass eats brain cells and like been leads to the use of more powerful drugs........
    Alcohol does the same. Would you like to revisit prohibition.. we all know how well that worked out.
