    From my experience those who haven't tried pot and feel it should be illegal are labelled as not cool. I've been harassed for my views and the fact that I have no desire to put illegal drugs in my body. Pot smoking does negatively affect the brain even after the high is gone.

    That is different.

    I haven't tried pot but I could give two tosses if it is legal. I prefer it legal and regulated than illegal and a black market forming. It's not going into my body.

    That view is enforced by the simple fact alcohol is legal. If Alcohol was made illegal then weed shouldn't

    I bet he smoked weed too

    Edit to say: digs, smoking pot or not has nothing to do with the cool factor as their are losers in both groups.

    LSD degrades rapidly in sunlight, so lighting it on fire would destroy it immediately. PCP laced weed is extremely rare but it does make it's rounds. I think it would be a safe bet that 95% of marijuana on the street is unadulterated marijuana. People just smoke really bad pot then end up with really good stuff and think it's laced.

    Marijuana for me, I dont like alot of alcohol especially being a pharmacology student.

    Definately booze for me. Tried pot a few times and it never did much of anything for me. Plus alcohol can be enjoyed moderately. I can have a glass of wine with my wife for dinner, or do a shot with my brother when we're playing cards, or have a mixed drink or two when I'm out at a bar or club and not get hammered. You smoke weed, you're getting high. It's kinda the sole point of weed.

    Though, for those talking about weed being laced with other things you're not aware of. Legalization would easily remove that possibility. Just one more reason why forcing something people are always going to want onto the blackmarket sucks.

    Re: Marijana or Alcohol

    I've only tried alcohol and never plan to ever try weed. I've also never tried cigarettes or cigars. Smoking anything just seems like a very bad idea to me, plus, pretty much all those things smell completely awful. Along with this, pot is illegal and it is not allowed while in the military. Even the reserves have drug tests. Finally, I really just don't want to use it or any other drug for that matter. I generally can't stand to take otc meds and absolutely hate Rx meds.

    I really don't drink a lot of alcohol, and anytime I do I regret it enough to not do it again for at least a couple of years. I stick to about 1 drink a day max, but usually have 1 every month or two.

    Doesn't surprise me at all that the majority of people would choose the far more dangerous substance...It's the laws fault though.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I've done both - prefer how alcohol effects me.
    Haven't drunk in a while, though - it's inconvenient to be out of the loop and unavailable - not to mention how sickly I feel after. . . and doing anything alone is no fun - my husband can't handle anything.
