Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
So if I say I was a regular drinker and then saved up all my drinks from the work week for the weekend that still counts right because it will equal out to about the same?
That's almost me. I think I might be 7-8 times a year since I occasionally have a drink before dinner.....if we go out to eat.
I've been toying with the idea of trying MJ to see if it would help with the chronic pain I have. I tried it when I was young and I really hated it but now they have medical MJ in cookies, etc. Would you still feel that "high" feeling if you took it that way?
I don't even know if it would help but it's something that pops into my head on a bad day.
I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
As far as the right to allow someone to kill themselves with drugs, or for that matter alcohol, I totally disagree. Though I don't personally agree with euthanasia, there is a viable argument that can be made. With drugs there is none. The time involved in that journey has tremendous implications for family, society, and the economy. As a recovering alcoholic I have to assume responsibility for the first drink. I am also aware that with alcohol and drugs there are physically addicting aspects that have to be considered. I've seen lives ruined because of drugs and alcohol. If it was just the individual additict it might be different, but it never is. I've seen adults in prison that started using when they were seven. The reason--they were doing it with there parents. I've dealt with situations where children were used as mules for there parents drug activities. The cost in health care and other societal costs is enormous. Prison alone is not an answer. We put people in prison where they not only get drugs but they are a higher quality than on the outside. When they are released they return to the same environment and situation they came from. Probation and aftercare is a joke. The caseloads are unrealistic and ineffective. Treatment is possible but its costly and requires and complete approach. In the end such an approach can be cost effective.
Be careful with edibles, especially if you have zero tolerance. Eat half, wait 30 minutes, and if you still don't feel it have the other half. Repeat as necessary!
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

I always find it funny that whenever I say I don't have any particular vices, people who do get really upset and try to find something I do that they consider "wrong", just so they can rationalize away their own vices. Why does someone who has no need to smoke/snort/imbibe/inject anything into their system make them feel so bad about themselves?
